The articlo bolow'wns written to tho
News and Courior by its Yorkville cor
Tne friends of Senator J. S. Brlce
have long been aware of tho fact that,
although he had never announced his
views on the dispensary law from the
housetop, he was not favorable
to the law. During the recent con
test in Greenwood between the friends
of law, order and decency on the one
haud, and thoso who wanted a State
rum mill established there on tho oth
er, the editor of the Greenwood Jour
nal requested a citizen of Yorkville to
give some faots relative to tho exper
ience of t his town before and s'uee the
establishment of the State rum mill,
which the citizen did. it is said that
the communication from Yorkville im
pressed the people of Greenwood as be
ing a fair statement of the ease and
strengthened the ranks of the anti-rum
Immediately after the article wbb
published Ex-Ropresentative McGHI,
of Greenwood, who Is said to bo an
ardent dlspensaryito, wrote Senator
Brice a letter, asking him to refute the
statements from Yorkville relative to
conditions before and since our looal
mill commenced to grind.Sonntor Brice
mentioned the fact that he had re
ceived such a letter from Mr. McGill
In the presence of your correspondent,
and. remarked that he could not refute
the statements from Yorkville, and
that what he would write would be of
no valuo to McGlll's side. The editor
of the Journal was advised as to the
situation and, after waiting quite a
while and in vain for McGill to turn
loose his thunder, wrote Senator Brlce
?for a copy of his letter to McGill. On
last Saturday an extra was issued by
the Journal, which contain* d tl.e fol
lowing reply from Mr. Brice :
"Your It t*er received and in reply I
would say I am unable to furnish you
with a copy of my lottor to Mr.-. Iu
substance I advised Mr.-to vote
against the establishment of a dispen
sary in Greenwood; that the Yorkvlllo
dispensary had not increased business,
probably injured it, as a great many
dollars merchants formerly received
were now left at the dispensary for
whiskey; that the dispensary here had
increased the sale and drinking of
whiskey enormously; that It was de
bauching a great many young men in
the community; that soveral citizens
who voted for it were now ready to
vote against it; that while It was
bringing the town and county a reve
nue of some $300 each per month, it
had not reduced municipal or county
taxes and probably never would; that
whilo I thought It had stopped the illi
cit sale of liquor to a large oxtent, it
was claimed that blind tigers still flour
ished at night and on Sundays, their
source of supply being tho dieponsary,

say, to tho citizens of Greenwood that,
In my judgmen*, they will find tbo dis

AN OLD FAVORITE I
SWEET LOVE REMEMBERED.
By William Shakespeare
HBN In disgrace with fortune end men'n eyes,
I ail aione beweep my outcast state,
And trouble deaf Heaven with my bootless erica,
And look upon myself and curse my fate,
Wishing me like to one more rich in hope.
Featured like him, like him with friends possessed,
Desiring this man's art, and tli.it man's scope,
With what I most enjoy contented least;
Yet in th' xc thoughts myself almost despising,
Haply I think on thee, and then my state
(Llko to the lark nt break of day arising
From sullen earth) ships hymns at heaven's gate.
For thy swept love remembered such wealth brings,
That then I scorn to change my state with kings.
