An Appeal to the Tigers
For several day? Tho Intelligencer hes been appealing to thc citizens of
Anderdon generally to come out and stand for the enforcement of law,
aiding the officials In muking of thlu u clean city for the mike of tho boys and
Kirls who are to bo tho men and women of thc greater city which wo shall
nave tomorrow. That our efforts have been appreciated is shown by the
ninny kind remarks heard on the stand The Intelligencer has taken. Pub
lic sentiment has been arointed, and a determination formed to make Ander
don "dry," a? it should bo under the law.
What WK wish to do this morning ls to appeal to tho illicit dealers In
alcoholic beverage*, und endeavor to get them voluntarily to give up their
busincBB and ally themselves on the ?ide of law ard order. Many of these
dre* sons of Anderson who havo mistakenly fallen in tho way of trying to
make tholr living In thiB way, and havo no desire, wo are sure, to do any
wrong. They havi just boon coing on :i little deeper, till they have gotten
ac deep that they feel they cannot stop. Then, too, there ls Borne money to
he mnde at lt, a bi? profit on each sole, and the temptation to grow rich (?)
fast gets hold of them, and they argue that their way of making money lu
no worso than tho methods employed by other business men. Doubtless
evory seller of beverages now under the ban, can recount a dozen dig?rent
transactions by men prominent In business life which they would claim to be
HS bad or worse than to have mado tho money by selling liquor.
Another feature which they think adds renpoctabillty to their business ls
the number of mon who stand well apparently in tho community and pat
ronize them. This ls, alas, too true. Attorney Sullivan yesterday an
uouncod as his reason for not pressing a case against one of the defendants
was that ho would have to put up as witnesses some young men and boys,
and Uiat ho would rattier forego a conviction than to subject these boyB to
the humiliation of testifying. "Humiliation of testifying"! Think of it,
will you? These young men should fool deeply grateful that Anderson has
a conscientious and Christian prosecuting officer who fceln so keenly for
the young men of the city that he will not proBS a case to keep them from
testifying in public. How humiliated these young men should feel this
morning, that they have aided a fellow citizen to violate the law, and that
he stands "humiliated" by tho Indictment of the court, while they, through
'ie grace of charity, are permitted to go free. Of a truth there could be
nn blind tlgorB if thero wera no patrons of their business, and the man who
patronizes a blind tiger has a degree of guilt.
Our appeal this morning, therefore, is to both these classes. First, to
the dealer in the illicit sale of alcoholic beverages to cease, and find some re
spectable way of making a living. Socond, to the patrons of these places,
tr, cease buying from them, and thu- make it Impossible for them to become
violators of the law. Another appeal we would make ls to the class of cit
izens who are In favor of obedience to the law, not to judge these offenders
1 no harshly, but to aid them in starting right, if possible, and assist them
tn becoming desirable and usofui citizens of "My Town." Let UB all realize
that everyone "Can do better in Andereon."
THE PUBLIC DEFENDER
Tho public defender lc needed
equally an much as the district at-1
Tile original theory of the law re
garding tho latter is that he ?H con
signed to act us a minister of justice
in assisting the ti ?al Judge to apply
equally either vindication or Convic
tion. However, In practice, he works
almost solely to secure the conviction
of the defendant in the cuse. TIIIB im
poses a hardship . upon the innocent
mau, in any walk of life, whose de
pleted purse will not permit tho ro
tuining of u lawyer tu conduct a pro
per line of defense to offset the efforts
of the district attorney. Many times
in such cases as the above, thc pub
lic is prejudiced ugninst the defend
ant Vor no material reasons. Because
thc prosecutor ls working KO diligent
ly to secure conviction, then, In their
minds, the man before thc bar must
be guilty. It is only Just and right
that the office uf Public Prosecutor
should bo established universally and
thereby the scales of Justice may be
weighed evenly, side for aide.
Anderson is in the thick of a stren
uous campaign to drive out blind ti
gers ti om that town. The Charleston
grand jury has brought to the atten
tion of thc sessions court the dere
liction of county and city officers
there as to the enforcement of the
law H against illegal liquor selling. In
Columbia the merchants are bring
ing pressure to bear upon the muni
cipal authorities to- enforce the law
against blind tigers. The Columbia
merchants are not emphasizing the
! moral as much as the business aspects
j of the situation. They assert that
i blind tigers seriously interfere with
the legitimate business of a town In
which they are. allowed to flourish.
We are uncertain as to Anderson,
I but we assort without fear of contra
diction that blind tigers conduct their
business with .greater v -impunity In
Charleston than anywhere else in
the State-possibly in this whole
?country. And 'Columbia,'illegal liquor
Belling ls far more common and, de
fiant than in Greenville.
But while Anderson IB taking, a
I decided forward step and great pree
I sure is being brought to boar In Co
I lumbla and Charleston to have the
authorities suppress the blind tigers,
Greenville Beems to be in danger of
L going the other way.
We have as good a police commis
j sion as any city in South Carolina
and it has dorie splendid work but
that work is being b&dly. hampered
by a reactionary city council. The
com ra i sion asked for an appropria
tion for enforcing' ' the law! - against
blind tigers, an appropriation with
out which tbat^wbrk cahnbt.be prop
erly.done, and showed from past re
cord?. tb?t fineftisJ-i?ys?i tis?r? re
suiting from' wofk dobo 'with that ap
propriation will, ip all probability ag
gregate several times'Its amount But
the appropriation was denied. Mo
satisfactory explanation of the de
nial has ever been. made. Economy?
Where is the economy In view v?f the
certainty that,tho fines resulting from
work done with the appropriation
will exceed Its amount? But, lt lt were
otherwise. If h sb 'of. that appropria
tion will keep down blind tigers, it is
worth making. Columbia merchants as
sert that blind tigere '. Injure legiti
mate .business. Can anybody success
fully controvert thler contention?
What is true of Columbia ia true of
. The refusal of city .council to prop
' erly sustain the police commission is
a step backward. ; There is no rem
edy, probably, until Ute next city elec
tion, which fortunately 1B not BO far
Greenville must ho kept up to a
high record of law enforcement, be
cause it ls right to have such a re
cord and because such a record ls a
valuable business asset.-The Green

A SPLENDID 310VE.
Thu city official? of Anderson have
launched a determined move against
the blind tigers of that city. Detect
ives were secured from Atlanta and
a number of cases against alleged ti
gers were made out. In some of the
caaos convictions have been secur
Anderson ls lo be congratulated
upon this move on the part of her
city oftk'ials. While it may never be
possible to wholly stamp out the illic
it sale, of whiskey, just as it Is not
possible to stamp out murder, it is
possible to reduce it to a minimum
and (hut should be thc aim of the of
ficials of every city. There Is no ex
cuse for the open salo of whiskey by
tigers in any city or community. We
do not eveu except Charleston. If the
proper effort was mude tho blind ti
gers could be stamped out of Charles
ton just us thom have been stamped
out of Greenville.
It is gratifying to note that the
good people of Anderson aro standing
squarely behind the city officials in
thoir effort to rid the city of the
whiskey shops. This ought to en
courage and help *he officials. An
derson people will find their city a j
much cleaner place in which to live
with the tiger eliminated; they will
find a great decrease in crime and a
more wholesome atmosphere.
In Gaffney, too, an offort ls be
ing made to stamp out the Illicit sale
of whiskey and wc trust that it will
moot with great success. The people
of thc Cherokee capital should uphold
their officials. Wc commend Mayor
Littlejohn and thc chief of police of
Gaffney for their efforts and assure
them of the sympathy of the good
people everywhere in their efforts for
a clean city.
The crusade against blind tigers
should spread all over the State. The
salo of whiskey should bo stopped in
South Carolina. Whiskey and hard
times do not go together.-r-The Spar
THE BELTON FAIR
Til pie are fairs and fairs. Some are
held for the benefit of "horse races"
some for the benefit of the fair asso
ciation- some for the benefit of fake
sido-shows and gambling schemes
where you toss rings or put your
money on the "lucky turn of the
wheel," and ".mee and a while you run
across one where the social and edu
cational feat ur- J reign supreme! We
have often asked: "Did you ever at

of Belton have made up a purse of

Although the Democrats lost quite
a number In the lower house -of con
gress they have no kick coming as
there was almost quite too many of
them at the capitol and a Republican
was getting to be so scarce that the
paymaster had almost forgotten there
was such a party In existence, and the
Democrats will now have somebody
to romp on when Uncle Joe, Bill Mc

Some Analyses of Election Returns
It appears from thc Associated Pi03s dispatches in The Intelligencer this
morning that tho'Democratic Party has suffered a.serious loss in the House
ot Representatives and in State officers in many Northern and Eastern States.
Just what this loss is can now only bo estimatod since returns from the rural
districts in many StatcB may later and in all probability will change the re
sults. Tho returns however* so far Indicate these results.
1. Failure of the"Progressive"Par ty~to~make*good"a?d hold anything like
its percentage ot votes as in 1912, it dropping way behind hr all parts ot the
country except tn California, where tho personality of Governor Johnson
?ems to have,kept the? movemnt alive there and elected johnson Governor
for the third successive tune. No iosger is the influence of Roosevelt auf
(icont to* create a third major party. It is dying and will, probably be burled
hy the time ot the Presidential election ot 1916. It has of course as an in
tor-party movement a great work yet to perform. It must not be forgotten
that the advent of the Progressive Party in 1912 assured the election of Wil
son. ?" * . t
3, Thnt throughout the great manufacturing districts of the North and
r'nst, a variety ot conditions, over which the Democratic party has had lit
tle to do, has sent it down to disastrous detoat, the party losing many'con
gressmen in all the New England States, New York, Pennsylvania, Illinois
and Ohio. Republican governors generally vero elected The cause ot
this ls undoubtedly the effect ot .the tariff and conditions of unemployment
brought about to an Alarming extent by the European War, exaggerated by
the -leaders of the Republican Party. Mr. Wilson and his party were not
responsible, but the voters evidently looked at what they thought were con
ditions and eliminating causes, "knifed" the Demjcralic ticket
3. The reactionaries had their ?ny again, in the elections of Penrose
tn Pennsylvania, Wm. B. McKinley in liitnois, Uncle Joe Cannon in the same
State and Roger Sullivan, (Democrat), in Illinois. Reactionaries in both
parties were generally successful. The Progressive movement, Including
Women's suffrage, prohibition and various new measures seem to hayo been
uniformity defeated, especially In tho East, though in the mining State of
Nevada Woman's suffrage seems to have won That ls good. It is to be
regretted that tho Prohibition issue in Ohio was so intermixed with other
issues that the "Home Rule for City" issue, a wet measure, carried. The
"wet" interests goner al ly oppose Woman's sufra ge, accounting for its de
feat in Ohio and el se whore.
4. General dissatisfaction with the tariff ou sugar in the Third Dis
trict of Louisiana, which comprises tho great sugar parishes has resulted in
tho election of a Progressive con grossman from the Pelican State. This
district is located just west cf New Orleans and composes the backbone
parishes (counties of the 'sugar belt In the state.) It ls the district which
for many years baa controlled Louisiana pol?tica. It haa a very large Cajun
tFreneh) population und aleo many Italians, It is one of the richest and
most progressive district in the whole South. It was an exception to the
real invoud into the Solid South made by a party other than the Demcratlc
in 25 years. ?
6. D?mocratie Party seems to have about split even on the Senatorial
contests. It will Still control both branches of Congress, but by very re
duced majorities. The Solid South, Far Wost and parta ot the East com
posed bf tho large cities seem to have saved tho Democratic Party from the
toss of both the Senate and the House. The Democratic Party held its
own in the Urge otties tn the East and North.
The cry of "calamity" was raised throughout the industrial districts of
the North and East; men were told that times wore bad because the Demo
crats controlled the country. And the voters took not into consideration a
world-wide condition ot depression which a war such as. the world has never
neon could but have brought on, mattering not who may have controlled con
gress. Business really ls not bad in tho North; and it ia aa open secret that
thousands of men were purposely kept out of work, to be Immediately em
ployed after the elections, for the purpose of assisting in overthrowing the
Democrats. This wai largely tho case in the smaller manufacturing cities.
It was a part: ot the work of the reaction art ea within tho Republican Party,
? lt has worked. . Bat it has sot hurt W??sou nor t??G u??ore?i? and ideas ho
representa. It ls e?fe td assert that had the Republican Party been in pow
er last Tuesday InBtoad ot Mr Wilson's ioUbwers that tho present world
wide conditions would have swept the Republican Party to humiliating de
test Tho Democratic Party lost much but lt did save l?ent and control of
Gie country. The Republican Party could not have done so.
.. -With conditions as they were, tho country is to bo congratulated on the
the showing Mr. Wilson's party made. For never before was a political
i party put to euch a test That some went back on it was to have been ex
pected. That thousands rallied to its cause under, trying conditions unac
I countable for except upon the basis of worldwide conditions is the rest test
and thereforo the real glory ot Democracy. She can al wagra count on enough

wei!, or db good Work. So gr^at is the polarity
of these famous plows that umcrup'ilous and pira
tical parties seek to trade upon their good name by
making and offering for sale imi^tion Plows and
parts as genuine.
We have the exclusive saW
uine Oliver Chilled Plows, Aiiy others offered
are spurious imitations.
Every GENUINE OLIVER CHUJLED PLOW
has stencilled on the beam the inscription "Manu
factured by the Oliver Ct?lled Plow Works, South
Bend, Ind., U. S. A."
All Genuine Oliver Chilled Shares, Mould
boards, Landsides and Standards! have the Trade
Mark at the left, above, and the name "Oliver"
The ?Hyer Chilled Plow is the best in the world
and has the largest sale. Be sure you get only the
genuine shares and other repairs, thus avoiding
the dissatisfaction that is certain to follow me use
o? the spurious extras.
