' Campaigning for Prohibition.
Opinion Is growing that the General
Assembly will enact a law prohibiting
the whiskey traffic In South Carolina,
subject to ratification by a majority
of-the electors. The law should and
will include financial provision for its
enforcement Everywhere in the
United States violations or prohibition
laws' increases in difficulty and liquor
sellers would as well' understand that,
whether the Congress votes for or
against federal regulation of tho traf

PARDON .MILL Ht'NN IMG
Again the pardon mill in Columbia
bun been put to grinding, and tili?
time ibero were seventy convicts
which came out of the mill uh u robult.
Only u very few reiualn in Iii? peni
tentiory, and wo cannot ?? ?* any good
reason for keeping tlu-m there. Frank
ly, we should like to see a general am
nesty granted and those few remain
ing given their liberty, if Governor
Ulease does not turn them all out, we
trust Governor .Manning will make
thiH the flrnt act or his official career.
It Is Inconceivable that the few who
remain in the penitentiary, wearing
convict's stripes, are any worse men
than ?ouie who have been given their
liberty. We stand for fair play, und
Ii Is not fuir to th?' few remaining
that they should he denied their lib
erty. Perhaps they did not have influ
ential lawyers who Btand iu with the
present administration to intercede
for them, and there may be other reas
ons why they nre atlll kept iu durance
vile. Hut, l( they are a friendless lot,
and have no one to Intercede for them.
The Intelligencer will play the role
of petitioner, and usk that they all
be turned out beforo the 19th of Janu
ary. If thin bo not pos'lible, and our
petition falls upon deaf earn, we trust
the new administration will heed It
and turn them all out.
It might he very well. Indeed, for
the prison to ho eleuned out no that It
could bo given a good airing, in order
that tho disease germs bo destroyed,
those germs which interfered with the
work asBigued to thn inmates. "The
quality of merry in not Btralned," but
we can hardly say so much for the
quantity. !)y ull means let equal jus
tice be doun all citizens of tho com
monwealth, and all unfortunates who
have tost their cltlzenNhin.
REV. NETTLE'S FAREWELL
With tho current issue of The
Southern Christian Advocate, Rev. S.
A. Nettles sew* s bis connection with
tho paper, turning it over to Rev. W.
D. Klrkland who will be the new ed
itor. The period of time In which The
Southern Christian Advocate has been
edited and published by Rev. S. A.
Nettles has been an important period
for tho MethodiBt church in South
Carolina. He has had anything but a
smooth sea for his journalistic career,
and there has been no lack of Interest
ing happenings In the ranks of Metho
dism. Being a hard fighter and a good
writer, Rev. Kettles has kept bta paper
before the public, and has contended
for what he believed to ho right, with
feariesB abilty. Ho could have ad
opted an easier aad more popular
jourae, but such was not his concep
tion of duty.
The valedictory which Rev. Nettles
iUB written is mild, and expresses his
.est wishes for the new management,
nul for the new publishers, as well
as for the MethodiBt church. His
urougcBt opponents can Scarcely find
unythlug in this farewell word which
will be criticized by them.
Thus passes from the religious
press a man who has made a strong
fight for what he believed to bo right.
He has left his Impress upon South
His successor, Rev. W. D. Kir aland,
is a gifted and fluent writer, und tho
ujntithepis of tt 0 former (Mi tor In
many respects. That he will ably edit
The Advocate goes without saying, and
tho conference could hardly have chos
n a bettor man to bring together the
'actions In the Methodist ranks. An
derson is glad to have the privilege
Of publishing The Advocate.
ANDERSON COUNTY'S EXPERT
While it Is almost reasonably sure
that the Anderson county delegation
will authorlso the expenditure of the
$800 asked for by Hon. W. W, Long
to supplement his fund for a county
farm demonstration agent, it would
have been better for tho assurance to
have been given definitely at. the
meeting held hero Thursday. Similar
requests were made by Mr. Long of
tho Greenville and Spartanburg dele
gations and they Immediately sub
scribed the amount naked for, so their
expert farm demonstration agents
have been assigned, and they will
Immediately go to work. Tho work in
Anderson county is just as important
as it is in Greenville or Spartanburg
counties, and we should havo Just as
good a man.
We were informed by Mr. Long that
ho bad an exceptionally good man
whom be could place In Anderson
county, It the delegation acted favor
ably .upon bis petition, since this was
trot done, wo-doubt whether or not
Mr. Long will be able to keep this
expert for Anderson county, if some
other county takes advantage of this
proposition. Let us hope that the de
lay by the delegation will not work
to the detriment of the agricultural
work In Anderson county. So. import
ant is .this, work and this decision by
the delegation that The Intelligencer]
hopes soni* way may be had by which
the delegation can he polled beforo
the meeting of legislature. It this
cannot bo done, so trust Mr. Long
will bold off ftori sending the expert
Iio has in view to another county.

Oh, not for him the glory.
And the dash and crash of war.
But hiB heart Is away on a mission
When thoy hear no cannon roar!
And there Is the heart of a soldier?

A whlte-facdd' Woman, a little child, |
That stand by the window sill;
A little song, and a little prayer,
And a wonder in the face.
And n "God save'p?i,i and bring him

And thoro Is tho heart of a soldier
Not on the Held of tight.

The Store with a Conscience
HAS BEEN .PREPARED
SPARTANBUF.G, Jan. 3.?Under
the direction of the headquarters
committee of the Anti-Saloon Lcagve,
Senator Howard . B. Carlisle has
drawn the Statewide prohibition bill
that will be Introduced in the ap
proaching legislature and made the
basis of the fight by the prohibition
ists of the State before that body. It
rrjjj Kg submitted to the members of
the committee tomorrow, but may not
be mp.?e public for the time being.
The document is said b> he simple
and brief and seeks to apply to tue
whole State the liquor laws that ap
ply to the dry counties at the pres
ent time. During the past week Sev
eral conferences have been held by
members of the headquarters com
mittee, and It Is said thay are conll
dent, from what they hear from over
the State, that prohibition will win
in the legislature and the question
be submitted to the neo; lc at an elec
tion to be held next fait.
An interesting rumor Is current
locally as to an amendment to exist
ing liquor laws to bo advocated by
the advocates of prohibition. It will
be proposed to make It unlawful for
any person to receive more than ?ne
gallon of liquor' per month, according
to this report. At present the law
allows individuals to receive for per
sonal use packages of four and a
fraction gallons as often bb he de

My New Year Resolutions
Appreciating the fact that I am a part of the community, and under
standing that no individual has a right to expect the community to be any
better than he tries to malte it, I begin with yesterday's Big Monday Sale
and these resolutions:
The Bee Hive is to be; a better store this
year than it was last. .
As 1 look back I see many shortcomings
in my service. This I shall improve.
I have learned many things during the old
year 1914?from you and from others?and
1915 is to be better for our added knowleg? of
what you desire and what it is possible for me '
I have a new ambition to do bigger and
better things in modern storekeeping, and to
more broadly deserve your patronage, and 1
believe that 1 will get more of your confidence
and support as fast as 1 deserve it.
I am resolved to educate myself in the
principles of good citizenship in city and state
and nation, in so far as 1 have opportunity and
ability, and? (
I am resolved to find Some particular part
of the community life/In which to be personar
ly interested, and to ?of what I can to make It
as good as it can be. -t ^
1 am resolved that Xytflf use my business
in the right way, on princ?p?es of righteous
ness and for the ends of progress.
1 am resolved that I will stand against all
forms of community wickedness and. vice,, and
that 1 .will help in any cause that attempts to
better conditions that now exist.
1 f.rr. resolved that 1 will unite myself with
all who, like nie, are desirous of better thing*,
that by the force of union we may be able to
bring about the conditions we desire.
I am resolved that this is a good world to
live in-?especially that part covered by An
derson county?but the efforts of good people
can make it better, and that I will help.
1 am resolved, starting today, to improve
the'old Reed building, on North M#n street so
much that you won't know it, ,
And in conclusion, I am resolved to keep
air of my old. or regular clerks. They* have,
stood by the Bee Hive'through thick and thin
and the Bee Hive is going to stand by them. .
1 am resolved to not only keep these old
clerks of mine, but to employ more if the good
people of Anderson keep on patronizing the
Bee Hive as ^they have started.
