PASSED THE HOUSE.
The Repeal of the Lien Law Now
Strong Argument? Made on lloth
Sidos.-Believed That tho Hill Will
Pass tho Sonnto.
An overwhelming volo in tho house
passod Mr. Richards* bill for tho re
peal of tho lion law to a third read
ing Friday morning. The hill passed
was very short, being as follows:
"Section 1. That section 3059,
voluino 1, codo of laws, South Caro
lina, 1D02, relating to lions for ad
vances, bo, and tho samo is hereby,
Soc. 2. That all acts or parts of
acta inconsistent with this act be,
and tho sair.o aro hereby, repealed.
"Provided, This act uhall take ef
fect on the first day of January, A.
When special order bills were
reached Mr. Richards at once called
for tho lien law measure. Mr. Ruck
or, who had tho floor tho day before
when tho proceedings were Intorupt
ed by (len. Loo's speech, was rcog
nlzcd. Mr. Hacker slated at the
outset that he was In a hopeless min
ority, but he thought tho gonernl as
sembly was making a mistake in
passing tho Richards bill. However,
if tho arguments made by tho major
ity were correct ho wanted tho re
peal to KO Into effect at once, and
asked Mr. Richards if he wore will
iup; for this. Mr. Richards said that
ho was not,
Mr. bl. K. Vernor, ono of the most
earnest advocates for tho repeal of
tho law, talked at length in favor of
tho pasage of tho bill. Ile was fol- ?
fowed by Mr. Harrison of Greenville, ?
who argued against tho repeal of tho,
Mr. J. P. nibson stated that ho had
called a mass mooting o? farmers in
his ocunty, Marlboro, to discuss tho |
matter, bul afterwards this meeting
was called off. With present labor
conditions and tli?? fact that there
aro now In tho Heids of his county
500 bales of unpicked colton ho
thought tho repeal of the law un
Mr. Garr?s also made a vigorous
light against tho repeal of tho law,
citing labor conditions and tho need
for encouraging the small farmers.
Representatives Brantley, Wycho and
Ai G. Brice . ll speke in favor of the
ed attention to tho flghl year after
year, tho agitation by tho farmers
and urged his argument that tho re
peal of tho law would not he a hard
ship on tho tottan I farmer, as was
claimed by tho opposition. In an
swer to Mr. Ruckor ho would say that,
tho reason he did not wish the rc-|
peal to go into effect at once was bo
cause lt would work a hardship on
those holding liens. He therefore
wanted to give tho landlords or farm :
owners timo to preparo for the
change. Ho believed that tho re
peal might temporarily effect some
or tho tenants and some of tho land
owners, but in tho long run lt would
provo a blessing and would take out
of tho grasp of tho merchant-farmer,
who charged anywhere from 25 to
100 per cent, for supplies, tho poor

Tito general impression in Wash
ington is that Senator Knox will be
the man upon whom till the anti
Roosevelt interests will combine, and
that when the ultimate show down
in the convention comos Knox and
Taft will be I he loading candidates,
It is probable that the rase will he ;i
close one between them on tne final
ballot and it is possible that if some
other candidate ?ike Fairbanks, or
La Follette, sticks to the last that
there will be a deadlock. The con
trol of tho National Committee by
the anti-Roosevelt faction, with its
power to decide which of the con
testing delegations shall bc placed
upon the roll of delegates may turn
thc scale against Mr. Roosevelt and
All the power and money of tho
corporations and the tariff protected
intererts will be used to prevent
President Roosevelt from rounding
up thc Southern deletratc-s into tho
present condition in the Republican
camp, but with "practical" politic
ians involved with both factions,
there may be lightening changes in
tho program when found neeessarry
to achieve their ends.
Whichever faction succeeds and
whoever is nominated hy the Re
publicans, will leave gaping wounds
that will be hard to heal before
election time, especially in Ohio and
New York. Thoa the chances of
the Democrats aro apparently im
proved, but so much depends upon
whether tho party can unite upon a
candidate, who will not drive away
neccessary votes to win in tho
doubtful states, makes it impossi
ble to look forward to the result of
the election until, at least the nom
inations of both parties have boen
They F.vado the Law.
From the first of .Inly to thc first
i)f January 18,787 whiskey prescrip
tions were filled by the drug stores
;>f Charlotte, and yet some people
^ay they have prohibition over there.
Putting thc average charge of the
doctors for writing prescriptions at
ten cents each, this will show that
tho abolition of the barrooms ha.
added to their income during a pe
riod of less than six months just $7.
>28r80, or a yearly average of $1?>,
Placing the amount purchased on
each prescription at eighty cents,
this will show that the drug stores
have done a weekly business in the
same length of time of $15,037.(50 or
an annual trade of $30, o75.20. Com
bining these amounts paid to tho
iloctors and the drug stores, it will
show that $45,112.80 is spent annu
ally for w hiskey in lhe drug stores
Such farces in thc way of prohibi
tion as they have over in Charlotte
makes a great many people oppose
that disposition of the whiskey ques
tion. If we are to have prohibit ion
we must, have it in the drug stores,
and everywhere else, or it will
amount to nothing. To shut up the
barrooms and make tippling places
:>f the drug store is a backward step,
Prohibition to bo successful must
prob it in tho drugstore as well as in
tia; bart oom.

The Rock Hill Herald calls atten
tion to the efforts that are now be
ing made to depress the price of cot
ton. The South Carolina spinners
in their Columbia ?meting decided
io curt-ail nrodootion, it >avs. The
Now E..&i?i.d spinners nave done
the same. They say they have no
demand for goods and there ia no
use piling them up in warehouses.
They claim that cotton is too high
for the spinner to get any profit out
of it. The English spinner at a re
cent meeting passed a resolution
looking to the establishment of an
inunense cotton farm in no South
so that they might teach people how
to make, take care of and halo cot
ton. This all shows that spinners
are anxious to get back to six-cent
cotton and that they will unite their
efforts and great capital to accom
plish their purpose
In view of this, what should the
cotton growers do? asks the Augus
ta Herald. In the first place, as to
the cotton grown last year, they
should continue to hold it. The
crop last year was a short one, at
least two million bales short of meet
ing the ordinary requirements. The
little curtailing of manufacture that
may be done here and there will
have little effect. The new mills
will more than sullicc- to make the
demand for the raw material as
great as it was last year. So far as
I he cotton now on hand is concern
ed, it is hound to advance in price
as the season advances.
As to next year the Southern
farmer should pr?pare to meet the
organized efforts of the manufact
urers to bear the price by planting
more corn, peas and small grain.
That will surely lead up to raising
colts, hogs and cattle. That will
cut down guano bills. Prepare land
throughly and plant two-third the
usual acreage in cotton. That may
give less cotton hut more mon
ey. If it was known that the
South would make only ten million
hales this year, the crop would he
bought for future delivery at 15
cents if possible,Then let Un; acreage
ho cut down. This is the only de
fense the farmers can make. With
an abundance of corn, hay, hogs
and cattle on hand the farmer wil
be in a condition to hold his cotton
consideration now than ever. The
high price for which colton has sold
all this season, and the still higher
price which those will get who shall
bo able to hold it, will serve as an
incentive to planting a larger acre
age If this ho done, it will play
to the hands of the manufacturers,
as they have stacked the cards, The
price next season would be low.
So the safe plan will be to devote
a larger acreage to corn, small grain
and other crops, and less to cotton.
This will insure a high price for cot
ton and at the same time have the
farms better stocked with food sup
plies. It would mean prosperity for
the farmers, and for the entire
To this the Farmers Union and
Southern Cotton Association should
address themselves. As to the last
seasons crop, they can do nothing
moro. Each individual holder of
cotton must nov/ determine when he
shall sell his remaining bales. But
through the Union and the Southern
Cotton Association with their mem -
bership including the majority of
cotton planters, the urgent need of
reducing the acerage to bc given to
cotton should be set forth and an ac
tual reduction of not less than
wenty-five per cent effected.
The figures given out, from the
White House, that Taft is certain
of 521 votes in the Republican Con
vention, with moic to come, may
be found after all to be colored by
the enthusiastic statisticians of the
"tennis cabinet". It would be
rather extraordinary for a Repub
lican Convention to nominate a can
didate for President airainst the
protest sf New York. Fennslyvania,
Indiana, Illinois and other impor
tant slates. The nomination of Taft
can only he brought about hy the
votes controlled hy tho federal of
ficials in tho South and West, and
such an endorsement of "my poli
cies" and "my candidate" would
hardly bo a recommendation to In
dependent voters arni civil sei vier
reformers in the doubtful states.
The Republican factional light thus
seems to be drifting in favor of the
Democrats, if they eau get to^el hel
en a candidate upon whom tho Bry
an anti-Bryan factions can agree.
Ric i rr under tee nose of Uncle
Sam at the Nationai Capital the pro
hibitionists declare there are 100
speak-casies, which if true shows
how impossible is real prohibition.
But that that does not exonerate
the Republican officials which al
low such evasions of the license law,
