TO SAVE THE DISPENSARY.
If the Hon. Coleman L. Blease should
be elected Governor of South Carolina
the Dispensary would be stronger than
it has been in years. Senator Blease is
the most active and aggressive cham
pion that the Dispensary has at this
time. With Mr. Blease in the Gov
ernor's office and Capt. Tillman in the
Senate the Dispensary would be con
ducted much as it was conducted when
Capt. Tillman was Governor. If the
Dispensary is not killed at the present
session of the General Assembly to
Senator Blease will be due the princi
pal credit for saving it. This will af
ford to Senator Tillman the opportunity
to make that "one more" campaign in
Meanwhile wo are not sure that Sena
tor Tillman has a stomach for that
fight. He will have all he can do to be
reelected to the Senate without risking
his political life to save the Dispen
sary's corpse now floating rapidly out
ward with the tide. For six months he
has been as quiet as a mouse about the
But?if Mr. Blease shall succeed in
leading a spectacular fight for the
Great Moral Institution in the General
Assembly, the Tillman-Blease ticket
may prove the strongest combination in
next summer's campaign.
THE 10 HOUR DAY BILL,
We wish it understood that The Ad
vertiser is not fighting the "10 hour
day bill." We are taking no part in it.
We do not know whether or not our
mill operatives and mill owners in Lau
rens desire it. It is largely a question
of expediency. We should hesitate
long to advocate or oppose measures of
legislation affecting tlje relations be
tween employers and employed?wheth
er engaged in manufacturing, farming
or rail roading, unless we know fully
what the persons most interested de
On general principles, we believe in
short hours, on general principles we
should favor the "10 hour a day" bill,
but this does not mean that we should
favor it if it involved a reduction in
earnings or carried great injury to ei
ther operatives or owners or both.
Whenever the time arrives that the
hours in the mills can be reduced
to 10 without curtailing the wages
of the help, we shall favorthe
passage of the bill?but we are una
ble to say whether or not this can be
done at this time. The mill presidents
who have spoken say that such a time
has not come. If the mill operatives
generally demand the passage of the
bill showing thereby a willingness to
take the risk of a wage reduction, we
think the bill should be passed; but they
do not appear to make this demand.
THE ELECTION CONTEST.
As regards the election under the
"Brice Act" held in this county on
January 9th, that there should have
been a contest is unfortunate. There
was no necessity for it. The election
should have been conducted so as to
make the legality unquestionable.
The white people of Laurens County
are not just now learning how to con
duct an election.
There is not a single charge of fraud
against the voters of this county and
the people have a right to know who is
responsible for trifling with their con
stitutional rights, and the transgressors
should be made to feel the weight of
AS TO VAGRANTS.
If any person in Laurens County is
violating the laws against vagrancy,
the duty confronts the officers of the
law, backed by the good citizenship of
the county to have them arrested and
punished. We know of no law that can
be enforced except by public sentiment
represented and embodied in faithful of
ficials. So long as vagrants are com
mon, burglars, thieves, blind tigers and
other miscreants will endanger the pub

SOUTH CAROLINA POLICY-HOLDERS.
Hold Meeting la Columbia and Perm
Columbia, Jan. 18.?The policy-hold- j
era of the New York Life and the
Mutual Life Insurance companies met
here today to perfect an organization
of the State policy-holdors. The first
to meet were the policy-holders of the
New York Life. They perfected an
organization by electing Mr. T. B.

Govemor John C. Sheppard, vice presi

It was decided that the executive
committee should be composed of one
member from each congressional dis
trict in the State. A committee was
elected to represent the policy-holders
at the annual meeting of the company.
Governor Heyward was recommended
for appointment to fill one of the va
canciea on the board of trustees.
The policy-holders of the Mutual, at
their meeting, followed the same plan
of organization electing Gen. Wilie

VA.RDAMAN WHIPS CONVICT.
Conduct of Chief Executive of Mississippi
May be Investigated.
Jackson, Miss., Jan. 18.?A report
having been current for some weeks
that Governor Vardaman had thrashed
severely a convict at the Governor's
mansion some time ago M. W. Wells,
Jr., a member of the Legislative peni
tentiary committee, called on the Gov
ernor and asked him if the report was
true. Governor Vardaman said that
he had whipped the convict, who, he
said, was shining his shoes, and made
some impertinent remark. The Gov
ernor said he had kicked the convict, ^
and then grabbed a broom and had
given him a sound thrashing.
Governor Vardaman, in his message
to the Legislature, charged the Legis
lature to investigate the convict sys
tem and this whipping of a convict by
the Governor will be thoroughly inves
tigated by the committee. The con
vict who was whipped is now in the
prison hospital suffering from rheuma
tism. The publicity of the story here
has created a great sensation in politi
