there will be more water, another

The only correct:ve to he found

teach the true dign:ity of labur; a
system which will bravely exoose

society by which so many of our
brightest and noblest young men are
held in fetters worse than slar-ery; a
system which will unfold to the
student ot humanity the beauty and
nobility of ari independent manhood
which scorns alike the mad scramble
for fame and fortune in the surging
ranks of the pettifogger, the quack
doctor, the shop clerkship, and the
,.uminorous 'pie hunter;" and which
quietly and modently exemplifies the
qualities of true manhood by ini
pressing the fact upon the youth of

shop have, in all ages of the past,

The South Carolina liquor law
goes into effect on July 15, and
Gov. Tillman says of it:
There will he no bar-rooms in th
State. Whisky will he dispense,
or sold to consumllllers on by bond
ed olficers in the different counties
in sealed packa:ges raoginz front
a half 1';nt to four gallons. No
package will be permitted to be
opened on the pttnises. The only
requirement for any citizen to ob
tain whisky or other stimolants is
that he shall sign an order or re
quest stating the amount or kind
wanted. Liquor is not to be sold
to minm-rs or habitual drunkards.
Beer and wine are also included un
der the provisions of the law. The
local officers obtain their liquors
from a State Comnmissloner, who
purchases all the lIqutors sold in the
State a:,l puts them into sealed
packages for distribution. All of
the goods purchased must be anal;, zed
by the State Chemist and their ipuri
ty guaranteed before sale. The
maximum profit allowed under the
law fifty per cent to the State and
fifty per cent at the local dispeensary,
one-half of which goes into the
county treasury, and the other into
the treasury of the munticipality.
The following preamble and reso
lutions were unanimously adopted
at a meeting of Louisuaia journal
ists'held in the town of Alexandria
a tew days ago. They point uner.
;ngly to a much needed reform, and
are well dese'rvina of the thought
ful attention of every good citizen:
Whereas-The present elective
system of Louisiana has been ma
nipulated in a mannlier to deprive
the people of their inalienable rights,
making it a machine in the hands of
designing politicians to debauch the
ballot-box, renider nugatory the will
of the people and perpetuate in
power those who in many instances
are not the choice of the people.
\Vheresas-In the intetest of good,
wholesome and honest government
it is necessary that the State of
Louisiana should have asuch an eleo
tion law as will guarantee to the
people an untrammeled right to cast
a free ballot and to have the same
returned as easit in the ballot-box.
Therefore be it resolved-That
we, the prpresethtatives of the press
here' asembled, do hereby pledge
ourselves to use every honorable
mesas u our power to induce our
State legislaaie to enact such a 4al
lot law as- will ieet the nstessities

WH EREAS, it is the sense of this
meeting that the present admiuistra.
tion has ever successfully mnaagene the
affairs of our city ; that it hais shown
a spirit of order and progress rarely
evinced in our city before; that it
goes trot of office leaving the town
with good streets and bridges, and the
tretngury in a good financial condition.
Whereas, E'pecially by dint of con.
stant endleavors and renewed efforts it
has sneceding in putting down the
boodiumn element, who, within the
last year commritted serious deeds of
lawlessness, and under the cover of tile

elltdagerming the precious lives of men,
women and children;
