Last week we published Senator
Tillman's defense of the Dispensary
Law as set forth in his speech ab'
Gaffney, and this week we publish
the ooncl ud lng part of the same speech,
in which he suggested certain changes
in the law, which we know will be
read with interest by our readers.
On this point Senator Tillman said:

LET HIM APPEAL TO HIMSELF
A BTRONO PBRHONAL AI'I'EAT,.
It is certain that the best way
for a man to enter upon a course
of reform is first to begin there
formation himself. If drinking
liquor is his besetting sin, he
must bring the whole force of
his manhood into play to resist
and overcome the habit. To
picture to him the evil conse
quences, the degradation and
tue utter and unaccountable fol
ly of dissipation does little good,
for a sensible and reflecting man
who has gone down in this way
is thoroughly acquainted with
the saddest feature of the drun
kurd's life. His conscience has
V/ctm'wrung until he has trem
bled with humiliation over his
conduct. Every man has some
will power and though il nm y
be weakened by indulgence in
any bad habit, nature does nol
surrender altogether at any time
and will power can be restored
if the mind ol' a reasonable man
will take the matter up within
himself and plant his feet in the
direction of a better life where
there is hope and promises from
on high t hat the image of the
great Master shall no longer be
Let the man t uru away from
his sin of his own volition and
when he returns to that place in
his owu home nnd in th" ?rtrv"*v
urning, uoouren?es ot death by
suicide or accident and the
many other sources ol' suffering
from liquor fall upon the eye ol'
the inebriate with 1 Itt le avail.
Tue Keely cure and other rem
edies fail. The mau reads of
the unfortunates, he may try
the (Mires, but there is no relief
in anything lie sees in print or
any treatment with medicine
where the mind has not been
fixed in ist purpsse.
A few writers and public
speakers have done some good
in the direction of appeals. The
man who falls into liquor dis
sipation is usually of a temper
ament that softens under appeal.
But the appeal much be of such
a character as to command his
respect and must emanate from
a source in which he has confi
dence. Yet with appeals of
whatever nature and with all
other means which wise and
good men and the best and most
devoted wives and mothers have
i>..~..fri,f tn hftr upon til i s evil,
nt good has i een
e in the man him
no disposition lo
y and defeat it by
of his own will,
.leeds heroic treat
ment but he must be the hero to
administer it, and if he is a man
lie will go about il with courage
that quails not under any trial.
lt ia not. expected that those
who have become imbeciles by
dissipation can recover within
themselves, and icu1 such wrecks
ot humanity an asylum should
be provided where they should
bo required to be placed for
treatment or to die. No person
who has been reduced to such
mental and physical irresponsi
bility should be permitted to go
unrestrained and the govern
ment should take charge of
such a person as iE he were in
sane from any ot her cause. The
wollare of the lamily, the salty
and respectability of society
nial the protection of the man
from himself demand this.
