BKLIEVES THE FIGHT
SHOULD BE MADE.
IV. P. T. Thinks Hie Time Is at Hand
to Overthrow the Whiskey
Editor The Advertiser, Sir: I am
glad to see In your last editorial that
you take a somewhat optimistic view
of the whiskey situation, especially in
Laurens county. Perhaps your liver
was a little out of order when you
wrote your editorial of two weeks
ago, Excuse me, but I would recom
mend that you would watch out for this
organ, as the Doctors tell us that when
this part of the machine is at fault we
become gloomy and despondent. In the
fight for prohibition we won't noed
any pessimists. You say that if the
Brlce Bill passes, and If there be
enough prohibitionists they can vote
the dispensary out of Laurens. Well,
If atn not mistaken the Bill has become
law, and I believe thero are real pro
hibitionists enough in Laurens county
to bury the dispensary beyond a pos
sible resurrection, if they will wake up
to tbe situation and come to the rescue
as good men. I believe the day has
dawned upon us when the prohibition
ist can go up and possess the land and
dritfu out the dlspensaryites that for 12
long years have spoiled this goodly
heritage of ours by having this great
State to deal out annually millions of
gallons of poisonous liquors, that have
wrecked more lives physically and
morally than all other evils combined,
to lay nothing of the spiritual lives
liquor has ruined for eternity. When
we think of the long train of evils that
it has brought upon our people, it
ought to oause every true man and wo
man to rise up in the name of right and
justice, and as you say, "'make a olean
cut fight" for the principles that ought
to be near and dear to the hearts of
every father and mother in this dear
I want to say in this connection that
success largely will depend upon the
Stand that our preachers take in re
gard to the matter. I don't believe
that a minister should become a politi
cian, but he should go far enough into
politics to protect his own home and
that of his people against this sin of
the Devil as it exists in our land today.
No true minister of the gospel can keep
silent when he is comfrouted with so
great an evil. I honestly believe that
it the preachers of God's truth would
meaiure up to their full duty and ob
ligations in fighting this great whiskey
machine, claiming to be an heir of the
State and a joint heir of Senator Till
man, that they would be a power ce
hind the throne. Now in conclusion
I wmt to thank The Advertiser for
letting me have my say on this great
Hoping that the cause .shall touch a
responsive chord in other minds and
hearts and that we shall go forth in no
uncertain sound and victory shall be
