The Herald remarks that "the
Advertiser and its faction are
only in favor of prohl dtion when
they think that, perhaps there is
some chance of making political
capital out of It."
The Herald has no right to say
this. It is in a position to know
that the. Advertiser is squarely
opposed to prohibition.
The Advertiser believes the
dispensary law the worst form of
whiskey regulation because it in
vades individual rights and makes
tbe State a party "to a venal com
promise with vice." Therefore we
are ready for the time to accept an
attempt at prohibition as the lesser
of the two blunders in legislation,
but what wo favor is a return to
the old system.
Whon at the last State primary
the vote was taken directly on the
question of prohibition and no pro
hibition and the former idea pre
vailed, then the Advertiser hav
ing participated in the election put
aside its preferences and Joined in
the demand for a prohibitory law,
?believing that the verdict of the
people merited respect and that the
prohibition experiment should bo
tried in order to determine the is
sue one way or another.
When the Legislature ignored
the will of the democrats of the
State so expressed did ^the Herald
refrain from condemning its un
faithfulness because it was a Till
Who will fill tho shoos of Capt.

is Oolonel Stanyarne Wilson, smart
young Tillmanite, good speaker,

against Irby and author of the
magnanimous railroad bill. Then
there is General Hugh Farley, who
possesses a genius for anecdotes
and is well acquainted with the
genealogy of the cotton tail family,
besides being the deservedly cele
brated author of a scheme whereby
the warlike militia force of South
Oarolina may some day become a
life insurance company. Neither
of those engines of "refawm" wants
to bo flagged down just yet,
In the Newberry Senatorial race
last Septembor, Sligh, ' reformer"
beat Mower, Conservative, at thir

In the race two weeks ago
Mower, conservative, beat Wyche,
"reformer" at eight out of sixteen
boxes, winning at five country box
es where he had previously been de
feated. He was elected by a ma
jority of one hundred and eighty
one though Sligh's majority which
ho had to overcome was one hun
dred aud Arty.
How Is that for progress for the
real reform movement?
II, as the Herald asserts, "the Ad
vertiser and Its faction are only
In favor of prohibition whon they
think that, perhaps, there is some
chance of making political capital
out of It," why did not Uiey seize
the opportunity to endorse prohib

the sentiment of the county was
l?i? to 670 In Its favor,?the trend
of which they could not but have
foreseen before the primary?
President Cleveland can hardly
do better for South Carolina than

an important diplomatic position.
Mr. Bacon is thoroughly repre

The Tradesman's figures show that

1893 than the corresponding period
of 1802, in the Southern states the
increase was only one and three

Mrs. Mary Jane Murff, wife of

Rhe was a daughter <>f tho lato
John and Mary Knight, and was
born February 13th, 1829, and on
December 10th, 1841 she was mar
ried to Minos Murff and spent her
life in the community in which

was the mother ot 10 children's of
whom are still living and those to

had returned from homo from a

suddenly attacked and died In a
few minutes from heart failure.
Sho had been a member of tho
Baptist church at Poplar Springs,
for about 10 years. Her ploty was
not of the impulsive, demonstra
tive kind which would take king
dom of heaven by force, but her
religious convictions were deep
and her faith was grounded in
Christ, moving her to tho constant
performance of those duties that
came within tho sphere of wife,
mother, neighbor and frlond.
Kindness marked her actions and
words. She has bequeathed to her
children an inheritance rnthor to

quest she was buried at Poplar
