Protecting Whiskey Traffic.
The following is taken from the Chris

printed in Nashville:
"The steady growth of the anti-sa

one of the bright signs of the times.

Some of you good, staunch honest
men are conscientiously standing by
the dispensary. We honor you for
holding fast to your convictions. Never
theless you are responsible for forti
fying whiskey selling in South Caro
lina, making this State its Southern
stronghold and last refuge of the traf
fic. There is no denying it. Elsewhere
in the South they arc driving out whis
key and it has been vanished from more
than half of all Southern territory.
Senator Tillman gave you the dispen
sary "as a step towards prohibition."
Ours is the only Southern State that
has not "stepped", long strides to

South Carolinians are selling more
whiskey every year.
B. R. Tillman has caused more whis
key to be sold by the whole-sale deal

Ho has kept the business alive and
booming in South Carolina while it has
been shrinking and dying in other
States. His influence is keeping it alive
now. Many who read this won't be

We Don't Agree.
The following is an interview which
appeared in the Greenville News of
"As in the old Alliance movement,
the political grafter is going to be the
parasite to ruin the Southern Cotton
Association," said a woll known cotton
man in Greenvillo yesterday. "The
thing has scarcely been organized, and
it has been organized along good busi
ness lines, too, and yet the politician
is already in evidence. I did not go to
the New Orleans meeting, but I hap
pen to know something about the Hon
orable Harvic Jordon of Georgia. He
is a politician and he is riding the asso
ciation in an effort to be elected Gov
ernor of Georgia. In my opinion the
greatest mistake the New Orleans
people made, and it was the first and
about the only one, too, was in elect
ing Jordon president of the association.
He has a way of firing communications
into the press that are full of poor
judgment and bad reasoning. The busi
ness world has come to regard Harvie
Jordan as a huge joke and when he was
elected president of the association,
Wall street snickered. And it was rea
sonable that they should. Who made
himself more ridiculous than the Hon
orable Harvie Jordon on several occa
sions last summer, when he sung out
for 12-cent cotton and when the props
were knocked from under him he had
to sing down to a 10-cent tune and now
cotton is selling for 7 cents. He has
cost the farmers of the South a mint of
money. He showed he did not under
stand the cotton business and was hope
lessly lost in his estimates of tho size
of the ci*op. Can such a man inspire
confidence?the kind of confidence ne
cessary to make the cotton association
a power and a success?
"As for the State Convention at Co
lumbia several days ago, that was
nearer home. I had an opportunity to
watch it, and I watched it closely. It
was badly crippled by political schem
ers: men who have got to be rooted
out if the association is to be worth a
cent. In fact its very life depends on
freezing out the political grafter who
is eternally trying to help himself at
the expense of the public. There were
men at the State Convention who
wouldn't know a cotton stalk from an
Irish potato bush. They were there
for a purpose, but not for the good of
the farmer. They destroyed much of
the confidence that was necessary to
the welfare of such a gathering. I have
no reference whatever to the cotton
mill presidents, for they were specially
invited and very properly accepted, the
interests being so much in common, but
I am after the fellow that wants to be
Governor of South Carolina, or Con
gressman or anything else, who goes
into the farmers' association with the
idea that he is bettering his chances of
"For my part I fear still lower
prices. The farmers have fired their
last gun. There will be nothing now
to prevent a bear campaign, and the
bears are going to put in some heavy
work. They have been stupying the
situation. They know that at every
Convention there has been bickering
and strife and discontent. I heard a
prominent farmer say a day or two ago
that he was disgusted with the turn of
affairs and that he expected to sell his
cotton as he saw fit. The association
could go to pieces so far as he was
concerned, because it had already been
ruined by politicians and its effective
"This course is a gloomy view It
may be an exaggeration, but it serves
to show the effect of unwarranted in
terference on the part of the man with
an axe to grind. The association is by
no means wrecked though it has been
crippled and injured by some of its of
ficers. There are strong men in it and
I hope to see it held together and firmly
established, but in doing this they will
have to gag the politician and the man
with the axe to grind, gag them and
throw them out, and as soon as possi
"I am afraid that hundreds of the
farmers are going to sell with each lit
tle advance in tho market. This re
lieves the situation. It gives the bears
just what they want and they keep
hammering at the market. That is my
reason for fearing a further decline.
The biggest gun of the farmers has
been fired. It has proved to be weak
and now I predict a bear movement of
the most strenuous sort. ? Greenville
The gentleman above refcrrrcd to
may be correct in his prophecy. Wc
inclined to believe otherwise. Mr.
vie Jordan may be a politician,

ends are accomplished, let the pr
ers run for Congress or Govern
anything else they wish. Moreover
they will deserve something. Not as a
reward but because they will have
shown themselves capable of undertak
ing the management of the affairs of
At present there can be no danger
because they themselves have pre
cluded that by a constitution of their
If the scheme falls to the ground as
the gentleman would imply and Mr.
Harvie Jordan or any of the others
then announce themselves for office,
they will fulfill the gentleman's pro
phecy and will deserve to be repudiated
by the farmers, as wc have no doubt
they would be.
Of course there will be a number of
men who will sell their holding before
10 or 12 cents or even 9 cents is reached.
Let them sell; that will relieve the
nrcsent tension, but if there is a gon
[ oral reduction of 25 per cent in acreage
I the bears may hammer and maul as
much as they choose and they cannot
hold the price down below a profit pay
Wc do not believe there should be
any arbitrary rule fixed as to when a
man should sell his cotton. Let him
sell it when he has a satisfactory profit
in it. When the world is satisfied as
to a bona fide reduction of acreage the
market will not be glutted. If there
is no reduction the whole South covdd
not carry the weight of a bull market.

Your letter of December will,
received. The long staple cotton
I bought from you lor the Watts
Mills gave perfect satisfaction, by
mixing it with the Mississippi

both in length of staple and
strength. Yours very truly,
