LAURENS, S. C, Aug. 30, 1905.
The News and Courier asks Senator
Tillman to say if the refusal of
eighteen thousand Democrats to join in
electing him to the United States Sen
ate ought to have released the General
Assembly from instructions of the pop
ular vote at tho primary in 1900. That
number scratched the Senator's nai ie.
The Senator holds that because 18,<>00
Democrats who helped to elect the
Governor in 1892 refused to participate
in the Prohibition election, therefore
tho vote was not binding upon the Leg
islature. The two cases seem to have
been exactly parallel, and it is difficult
to see how Senator Tillman can claim
that the Prohibition election was not a
binding instruction unless he is willing
to confess that he was not the choice of
the Democratic people of South Caro
lina for the seat that he now holds.
REEKS WITH CORRUPTION.
The Dispensary investigation was
continued in Columbia last week, and it
was discovered that the Dispensary has
paid nothing to the school fund this year,
that it has a million dollars in whiskey
and other assets and that it owes $500,
000 for liquors. # There is also due tho
school fund over $400,000. It is very
doubtful whether or not if the concern
were wound up to-morrow it would bo
able to pay 100 cents on the dollar. It
was also brought out that the State
Board of Control purchased about
$300,000 in whiskies last December
which have not yet been delivered.
One V. M. Mixon, a former liquor dis
penser, glibly testified that a whiskey
merchant named Lanahan in Baltimore
had offered him immense bribes some
ten years ago when Mlxon had charge
of the business. This was in those
beautiful millennial limes when the im
maculate Tillman had charge of the
business or immediately after he left it.
Lanahan denies the story.
It seems that the Investigating Com
mittee finds that the corruption of tho
Dispensary crops out on all sides. It
cannot help making discoveries of in
competent management and occasion
ally of gross frauds and scandals. As
TlIB ADVERTISER has repeatedly said
for tho last three years, if the people
of South Carolina could only know tho
depths of infamous depravity to which
the servants of the State have descend
ed in this liquor business, it would be
hard to restrain them from marching
in a body upon Columbia and ?- .mg tho
State Dispensary aiv' all its adjuncts to
BUY A FA RAI.
The farmers of Laurens County and
of the whole South for that matter arc
in better financial condition now than
they have been since the war. The
average price of cotton has been high
for several years and there are such
accumulations of money in the hands
of the industrious and thrifty as have
never before been known in this re
gion. In plain language we are enjoy
ing flush times. Our people cannot
hope to have larger blessings in the
way of harvests and pricc3 than have
been given to them in recent years,
and the man who under present condi
tions cannot get on his feet, who can
not acquire si competency, barring of
course peculiar and special misfortune,
need never hope to rise in the world.
Unfortunately, humanity is prone to
throw away its best and richest oppor
tunities. Our people cannot expect
that the present prosperity will continue
forever. It is human experience that
good times and hard times alternate,
and they will continue to alternate. ?
When money is scarce it is easy enough
to practie economy. Then the practicce
is forced, but when money conies easy,
when crops are good and a bale of cot
ton yields a snug sum, self-control is in
finitely more difficult than at other
We are saying this to point out the
duty of our people and especially of
our farming friends, to make the most
of these opportunities. Lands will pro
bably never again be cheaper in Lau
rens county than thoy arc now. In our
judgment land is the best possible asset
that we can have.
There is no other remunerative in
vestment so safe. A home brings bene
fits which mill stocks and bank utocks
do not offer. It is a peculiar fact that
the man who js the monarch of a tract
of land in this country, wherco*'ory citi
zen is supposed to be a sovereign, Ip a
superior being to his fellows. Of course
in this we arc npeaking generally and
there are manifo.'d exceptiions, but the
possession of land odds to the person
ality of tho owner independence, self
reliance and ability to do things. A
land-owning population is always more
courageous and more efficient than a
population whose property consists in
money, even though the hitter's aggre
gate wealth be larger.
We advise and urge every young man
in Laurens who has even a few hundred
dollars ahead or who has credit to buy1
this winter, however small. Let him
remember that this is the best poi Ible
act that he can perform in the interest
of coming generations. It is all well
enough to talk about immigration, we
shall be glad to see immigrants of
character and intelligence come into
South Carolina, there is plenty of room
for them, but wo would like to sec the
people who now own the South to re
main in possession of it. In a few
years, we may have the boll weevil or
a recurrence of 6 cents cotton or some
other calamity may come and that is
why it is so important that our people
make the most of the present "fat"
SENATOR MANNING'S VIEWS.
Favors Amending the Dispensary Law -
May be Done by Next Legislature.
Senator Richard I, Manning of Sum
ter, a probable candidate for Governor,
next year, has given the press of the
State, the following letter:
A number of articles have appeared
in the newspapers calling on those who
are spoken of as probable candidate ;
for governor in the Democratic primary
next year to express themselves on
the question which is now agitating
the public mind, namely, the liquor
As one of those referred to, \ desire
to say that I have no hesitation in stat
ing my position on this subject. In do
ing so I have no desire to precipitate
the campaign at this time for, although
I have been frequently mentioned as a
candidate for governor, I have not, up
to this time, positively decided to he a
candidate and in now stating my po< i
tiod on the liquor question I do not com
mit myself to enter the race. i do so
now merely to prevent the idea being
formed in the public mind that I am
awaiting to see which way the tide
turns before stating my attitude there
In my opinion, a grave condition con
fronts our people, and its practical and
wise solution should be of paramount
importance to the political aspirations
of any man or set of men.
Irrespective of any candidacy. 1 feel
that it is the duty of every citizen who
realizes the responsibilities of citizen
ship to do his part in bringing about
the wisest and best solution of the li
quor question, to put aside prejudice, to
put aside politics and every considera
tion save the earnest desire to bring
about that condition which will promote
temperance and straight-forward, hon
est conduct and morality, ami will min
imize the evils of liquor.
It is inevitable that differences of
opinion will exist as to the way to ac
complish this desirable end even among
thuse who are earnestly and honest l\
striving after the same object. I re
spect the position of the prohibitionist
who believes that prohibition can be
effective in South Carolina. 1 admit
that there has been a growing tendency
to curtail drink, and the time may
come when the tone of our people will
be educated up to such a degree of
self-discipline, self-restraint and re
spect for law that a prohibitory law
against the use or sale of liquor may be
observed, but in my judgment that time
has not yet come in South Carolina.
Rut the time has come when Un
people of this State will no longer sub
mit to a continuance of the maladmin
istration of the dispensary law this
condition has become intolerable. The
dispensary must be purged, and cver\
act of administration contrary to its
purpose of restricting the sale of liquor
must be corrected, the ofllccr or em
ployee responsible therefor punished,and
every act of wrong doing wiped out.
The issue in South Carolina i di
pensary or prohibition; this does not
mean that the issue must be "dispon
sary-as-it-is" or "prohibition." but
"dispensary amended and honestly ad
ministered" or "prohibition."
A bib will be introduced at the con,
ing session of the legislature, which
will, if adopted, so change the dispen
sary law that it will be distinctly a lav.
to restrict and curtail the use of liquor
? will make the prohibitive features
prominent and imperative permit the
sale of liquor only under conditions that
will reduce the evils to the minimum,
and subordinate the profit feature of
the law. This bill will also make tin
salaries of dispensers and employ, a ab
solutely independent of the amount of
sales, will throw every pos: ibl< safe
guard around the parchaso of liquor to
prevent bribery and will endeavor to
correct such defects and eliminate such
abuses as the work of the investigate
committee may reveal, and make such
other changes as may be deemed 1
I believe that such a law can
will be a great step toward reducing
the evils of liquor; that it can be mod<
etrcctive and that it will not inter!,
with other functions of government.
With such a law the issue would
be "dispensary law so amended ' or
"prohibition." On this issue. I would
stand for the dispensary law so amc
ed; but I do not stand for the dispen
sary law as it is.
