LACHENS, S. CM August HI, 1004.
Twenty-live years ago the fine farm
ing lands m Hunters and Cross Hill
bovl ushlps were wortb about what they
eve Worth now. The time was when
tho Spring Grove plantation, sold in
smull divisions a year ago, would have
brought better prices. Moauwhllo tho
ridge lands In Dials and Youngs town
ships w. ro in tho old days worth from
$3. to $ti. the acre. They have come to
be worth from $15 to $40 tho aero. The
explanation is that tho proportion of
white people in these upper townships
is much larger than iu the lower.
Churches and schools have moro rap

No v it is history that about 100 years
ago most of the people in tho upper
township! were immigrants. In the
lower townships was a larger olement
of wo Itb'y planters with great bodies
of slaves. lato the upper townships in
the years following the Revolutionary
Woe numbers of immigrants from Ire
laud, Scotland and more especially
people of Scotch and Irish descent from
tho N r'be n States Hooked. Those
facts are only approximately true, but
they are sullleient'y aceurato to estab
lish the proposition that the immigra
tion of a good class of whites owning
small farms has made a woalthy and
prosperous'seotion. Wo doubt If uny
[whero in South Carolina or In tho
South I o o found a greater avorage
pr ? ?. than in the whole of Dials
and in parts of Youngs und Sullivans
I u iships. If the cry bad been ralsod
In Laurehsa century ago against tho

bought ror the least money. An irami

acre tract of land in Hunters Or Jacks

Thus If t d of im migration can bo
turned to the South again as It was
bnrned io> years ago, wo may expect
tho same sort of development as has
taken plaoa in our richest sections.

h..s boon tho tjt?lratl(Vn in f ivor of tho
Brio* bjl] as Introduced in tho logisla
yoar. H will bo roaiembsred
rlkftfc the bill permitted iho counties to
vt l?e dlsp n sari es out of existence; in
short, it permittod the people to have
Iocj! option a. I)"' ween the dispensary
?pTi'd p. (illicit on T, e
bill became a
law wiih nmendmonbi which fixod
hea 'y pecuniary fines upon counties
which cxiiioped tho audacity to voto
aga.nst ti'o dispensary.
It the 'OligjUes of York, Fairflold,
Saluda, Chester and Horry as well as
numoroos other! iogielative candidates
have spokon generally in favor of tho
original bill, and we lako It that an
earnest effort will bo made, in the next
gonoral assembly to repeal tho amend
ments. There Is nothing in this to
cause surprise. The simple truth is
that the majority of our pooplo, in
cluding probably four-fifths of tho
couniry people, arc and havo always
bcoii prohibitionists. They aro
dot/dy religious pooplo and thoy hsvo
iii/hoir hearts no toloration for tho
WMisk \v trad,! whether conducted by
State or individuals. [n i8P2 tho
prohibition cause woo a decisive vie
toiy at the polls, ou' of which tho peo
ple were grossly bw in tied. In those
days tho majority if ihe townspeople
were In favor of high license. The ma
jority of the country proplo in thi ir ln?
tonsu devotion to Senator Tilln a ac
ceptcd the dispensary idoa because ho
fathered It. It is possible that even
now, were ho to tako the stump iu Its
favor, J[they would vote against tho
Brlce idea rather than desert his In
terests. Nevorthelass tho spontaneous
uprising in so many counties for tho
Brico bill, which in effect would mean
prohibition, indicates that the
people, temporarily ivl'oved ol
Senator Hitman's Interference,
havo swuDg back to their
original prohibition faith. Tho sltuu
tion merely Illustrates tho wonderful
power which this man Till man wields
by reason of his ability as a stump
speaker. That ability is substantially
all that Senator Tillman has, but here
tofore it has proven amply sufliolont to
maintain tho Tillman supro . acy.
Sotno of the people in the eitios ami
towns wore largely iulluenecd against
the dispensary by their antagonism to
Tillman and tho townspeople were not
so generally opposed to the whiskey
trade. Now it has come about that the
dispensary has grown vastly In popu
larity in tho towns and the 'owns as a
rulo would vote to retain the dispen
saries. In tho city of Columbia wboro
a large rovenuo is derived directly and
indirectly from tho dispensaries, tho
moral institution Is Infinitely more pop
lar than one would havo predicted ten
yea'-s ago It ever could b?. As the sent
ofthosta'o dispensary, with Its tri
tuoudous volumo of business, Columbia
has bad great gains. Such Industries
as bottle factories and distilleries hive
grown up In Columbia as a direct < IV
sprlng of tho stato dlsponeary nnd the
loss of the dispensary business would
mean a far severer blow to the we .Ith
and business of Cctumh'a thai the
abolishing of the barrooms did in an
We bolievc that with So J a too Till
man eliminated from tho situation,
prohibition would rosttlt through locul

two or throe years, lu this th > State
would simply follow tho example of
Georgia, Texas, Totincssoo and all tho
Southern States, where whiskey has

It remains to be toon how long tho
