Fatmers' Union Will

In accordance with instruc.
tions issued by the State Farm

ganization has been called foi
Tuesday, January 19, at thre<
o'clock, in Columbia.
The object of the meeting, il
is stated, is to consider mattern
of importance to the farming
interests of the state and vitally
affecting the welfare and pros
perity of the country.
The state officers desire t
have a full and representativ

This step is thought to be the wisest for
the reason that it is hardly probable the
legislature would take the responsibility
of passing a straight prohibition law
without first referring it to the people.
The referendum method is the fair,
democratic way to settle it and no seri

other question it should not be denied!
them by our lawmakers.
Several reasons could be urged in
favor of permitting the people to vote
on it. There are many citizens in the
state who know little or nothing of con
ditions existingunder present laws, and
to refer the liquor question to a vote
would necessarily create a campaign on,
the part of the temperance, who would
furnish much valuable and startling in
formation as to conditions in South
Carolina now. This information will,'
we are sure, evoke hearty support for
the cause and create a widespread in
terest on behalf of temperance., Noth

by a public discussion and advertise

debauching and demoralizing effects of

Every voter in Pickens county is here
by notified that at an early day he will
have an opportunity, if present plans
do not miscarry, of signing a petition
asking the legislature to pass an act
allowing the people to vote on liquor or
no liquor at an election to be held next
September. It is hoped to have one
petition in the hands of one man in
every voting pfecinct who will present
them to the people for their signatures
in time to be sent to Columbia by the
time the legislature meets. We be
lieve every man in this county, if given
the opportunity, will sign one of these
petitions, but if anyone should not get
the chance to sign one, just write a let
ter or postal card to to Senator O'Dell,
or Dr. J. L. Bolt; or Hon. J. P. Carey,
Jr., after they go to Columbiv, and tell
them you favor submitting the liquor
question to a vote of the people and -it

and liquor dealers take notice of this
fact: Before the close of 1916 South
