BIT ONE Kl (jil T ( OIKSE
Anderson has declared war on the
blind tigers, and ls prosecuting of
fenders with determination. The In
tention of the city officials, who aro
ha<ked hy the strongest of allies
public opinion - seems to be to rid
Anderson of these miserable pura
Hltes, if such be possible. Anderson
is to ho congratulated upon this
activity fv>r the blind tiger is ono of
tho mont dangerous of all criminals.
Mis business d?bauches. It gives
rise to law-breaking of ull kinds.
Homicides and leaser Infractions of
the peace, often have their start In
tho joint o? the blind tiger.
Every one who is at all cognizant
of facts and conditions, knows this
to bo true. So how can any city af
ford to pursue any course except one
of prosecution for those who illegal
ly dispense intoxicating drinks? Any
course except one of law and order,
will Inevitably mean the ruin of some
young men, and the lowering of a
community's morality, There is no
reason for and every reason against,
the blind tiger. Our laws are design
id to crush him, und each citizen
should demand that these laws he en
forced so far as possible.
There was a time when so-called
dubs flourished in Greenvll!? and
when drinks could be bought with
little trouble. Hut these placcB of
resort were closed and for some time
he blind tlgor has been on the jump
in this city. He does not yet dare to
show himself In the open. But he
will return If ooccaslon offers, for he
is intrepid In MB work. So this city
should not relax in its efforts to exert
every power to crush out this class
of men who live by breaking the laws
and by damaging society. We have
been diligent in the past, and are dili
gent now. Let us continue to be.
The News ls taking no part in tho
disagreement which have arisen be
tween certain departments of the
city. It is standing now, as ever,
for straight out law enforcement, and
expresses now, as it has in the past,
the wish that all reasonable steps
will be taken to prevent the recur
rence of flagrant violations of the
law, and as far as possible, prevent
the violation of the liquor laws which
aro not open, but on the sly. It ls
argued sometimes that the sale of li
quor contrary to law cannot be stop
ped. But It can be reduced to a mini
mum, and this 4s our duty. What If
all violators cannot be made to mend
their ways, does that absolve us from
our duty to do our best toward check
ing the violations? Laws against mur
der do not entirely prevent it. There
1B no law which at some time ls not
violated, so mo argument mai tne il
legal sale of liquor cannot be stop
ped, hence there ls a little necessity
to try, becomes extremely absurd if it
be takes to conclusion.
The News is not aware of the plans
of the executive oiucefs with regard
to the enforcement of liquor laws,
but in the sight of recent events this
paper foelB that the citizens should
be urged against a division which
might cause us to lose sight of an
object which we all have in view
the maintenance of the majesty ot the
law. There is no escape from the con
clusion that connivance at lawbreak
ing means degredation. This paper
does not believe that any official of
thia city ia tho Mend of the blind tig
ers, nor that any official would shield
them. But there is a possibility that
the disagreements which arise might
cause a temporary lethargy, and In
this case the lawbieaker. alert for
his chance, .will flourish like a green
bay tree until tho principle Involved
is once moro caught sight of. The
differences which exist now are dif
ferences as to means, rather than as
to ends. Let not this diversity of op
inion cause a halt to be necessary.
GRAND STAND PLAY
Yqs, Governor Blesse will possibly
veto the proposed bond Issue, and
thia will bo done about Monday. Thc
legislature wilt then have to pass the
measure ov^r the Governor's veto and
this may not be done before Tuesday,
so how in the name ot common sense
and reason eau ballots be printed and
distributed before the election Tues
day, to say nothing of the proper ad
vcrtisments being given of the pro
posed bond issue. Of course this ls all
a grand stand play, and wi! not fool
anyone, except those who wish to be
fooled. The Intelligencer has said be
fore, and we say again, that the only
hope for the farmer ls reliance In
himself. And we do not mean that this
is a poor trope. It ls the best and saf

"MOVIES" AM? .MORALS
There was a time when many peo
ple were ready to declare that the
motion pin uro nh. w was a menace to
the morals of c hildren, who constitute
a large percentage of their patrons.
Certain classes ol pictures presented
In ?om*- af these theatres, it must bo
admitted, are not particularly elevat
ing, morally or otherwise. Hut it is
not to IK- doubted that the "movies"
have to a large extent outlived these
early prejudices. Like the newspapers,
tliey cater to the publie taste, and if
lin' wroiiK lype of pictures are shown
sometimes, i? is largely because the
public, by their patronage, have indi
cted their preference for that type
rjf ?how. 'lite motion picture people
?tildy closely tho kind of pictures that
utact most patronage, and conduct
i li? ir business on that principle. If
lie public more freelv patronizes un
Icslrable pictures, that is the kind of
pictures that will predominate.
Hut lt is almost conclusively shown,
thal certain other advantages must be
iet down to the ?redit of the motion
picture show. It has been frequently
mid that saloon keepers cvmipiain
that many of the nickels and dimes
that formerly went into their coffers
have been diverted to the ticket win
dows of the moving picture showi;
duce their extensive operation has
hecome established. Nov/ comes The
New York World, and points out that
.vithln the past year In Brooklyn r>3
? aloons have gone out of business,
while for the past two years some
two hundred new motion picture pla
i es have been opened In that city. The
World states that while this is not
conclusive evidence that the pictures
are operating to the detriment of
i he saloon business, it is nevertheless
quite convincing evidence.
Of course the patronizing of a mo
tion picturo show is a veiy different
forni of entertainment from that indul
ged in when a saloon is patronized,
l>ut the essential point is that each is
merely entertainment. Seeing a pic
ture does not satisfy the craving for
a drink, but many a drink is taken,
not because it is wanted, but because
of the fellowship and social contact
that go with it. These arc to be had
In almost as satisfactory a degree by
going into a picture show, and hence
:he him is a foe of tho glass.
In South Carolina we do not have
the saloon, but it may cause some of
us to have a kindlier feeling for the
pictures, and to be more chat liable
to some of their faults and imperfec
tions, when we realize that they are
apparently a real force against the
COMMITTEE OF FIFTY
The plan proposed by Dr. White in
tils closing service at the Baptist
church Thursday evening, thal a com
mittee of fifty representative citizens
mould be organized to co-operate
with tho authorities In suprussing the
liquor evils to which the city ls heir,
ls a good suggestion, and The Intel
ligencer wishes it can be followed,
pertain lt is that a sporadic effort at
cleaning up the city, will result only
in temporary relief. If lt ls not follow

; constant watch be ??1 on the matter.
Lhere will be a second growth of thc
ivlles now complained of, and condi
:ions will bc harder to handle at each
The idea that the city is after cor
recting an evil, and not after filling
its coffers with the money secured
rom tho fines of the convicted, is an
.rroneous ono, and should not be be
lieved. In fact, the etty ls doubtless
:onsiderably poorer after each such
sffort, even after all fines are collect
ed and turned Into the city treasury.
The Idea that should govern, and we
elieve does govern in this case, is
.hat the evil conditions complained of
mould cease to exist, and that those
vho are guilty of the alleged violation,
ihould become reliable and industri
?is citizens of the city. The truth of
he matter is, that every good citlsen
s an asset to thc city, and every un
testable citizen is a liability. ThU
s especially true when the c'.*.y has
o spend money to correct the vice
>f the citizen.
Yes, let us have the committee ot
If ty. or of one hundred, to add to tho
effectiveness v>f the good work being
lone by the city authorities. Will not

Sweet face of childhood
Thou lookest out on life with trusting
Cn-knowlng yet the awful mysteries
Of sin and sorrow, want and grief,and
Fro thine Is perfect innocence.
Yet some day thou shalt know the
pain of life,
And all its stern and hard realities.
God shield thee when that searching
day shall come! .
Sweet face of age
Thou lookest out.on life full trust
Yet thou hast known the . darkest
Which compass and ensnare the souls
For thou regardest all the woes of
As but the blows which call the statue
From out the marble; thou hast learn
The fire consumes the dross, rennes
And thou hast found at last behind it
infinite love and wisdom infinite,
Till now thou standest face to face
