company A, Second Kentucky
Infantry, which was a part of

belonged to a federal soldier
who had been killed in the bat

old time rifle and hid it in a hol
low tree near the place where
Cobb's battery had been station

had not been back to that part
of the country since that time
until the recent re-union of
veterans here, but., remiemb1 er
lug the incident, he took a trip
to Chickamauga and from tho
markers placed by the govern

found his rifle. The gun was

In this section.
Some correspondent has asked
the views of others on the whis
key question. It is a very hard
question to answer in the right
manner. In my opinion if
South Carolina ever has prohi
bition she will have to make
laws so stringent that when a
man violates the whiskey laws
let him suffer the full force of it.
If a law was passed that whey
the officers caught a man mak,
ing whiskey, have it ' bo
criminal offense, give uAm sc
many days on the gang. If this
does not break him and he
comes before the court the
second time, double his sentence
every time he is brought ..before
the courts. Make it a law that
no one can pay out and this will
treat the rich and poor alike.
Just as long as you put them in
jail for this offense it will not
stop It. I have heard men that
dealt in whiskey say that if
they caught them they would
have to feed them as, long as
they kept them in jail. And as
soon as they get out they are
back at the same old trade.
Now such as this will not stop
some people from making it.
Now the question is to make a
law that. they will dread and
when you stop the'making of
the stuff you will stop the d ihnk
ing and not before. I could say
more but will not intrude on
the editor's space in the paper.
