LIQUOR OR NO LIQUOR.
If the opposition of Tub Advertiser
to the state dispensary was opposition
to the former Tillmanite or reform fac
tion, The Advertiser would support
Richard I. Manning for governor, a
man who was always a Conservative
from the Conservative county of Sum
ter, and a man for whom personally
The Advertiser has the highest re
spect and cordial regard. But for his
dispensary views The Advertiser
would support him. We may support
him anyhow,?we can't tell, but if that
former Tillmanite Fr?ser Lyon of Ab
beville runs, we shall support him
against the held, because he has done
the cause of decency and honesty more
service at more cost to himself than
any man since under the lead of Hamp
ton, Butler and Gary, the Franklin J.
Moses and R. K. Scott gang of thieves
was driven out.
But if The Advertiser were a Till
manite newspaper and believed that the
fight on the dispensary was a fight on
Tillmanism, it would support Cole L.
Blease as to whose "reform" loyalty
there is no shadow of doubt and who
has been a dispensary man through
good and evil report. Nevertheless, we

corruption and the corruption., has en-^
tercd the ranks of former TillrruThites
and former "Antis" too. They will
vote in the first place for the interests
of Lanahan of Baltimore, Blumenthal
and Bickert of Atlanta, other liquor
dealers in other cities and last but not
least "Jim" Farnum of Charleston.
And they will vote for the Columbia
Maybe you remember that Ben Till
man used to talk about "bamboozling
and debauching" in Columbia. Well,
it's there now. Of course we are not
charging that dispensary corruption is
Tillmanite corruption. Why, of the
five old "Anti" counties, four, Rich
land, Georgetown, Beaufort and Sum
ter, are now dispensary counties. The
dispensary is strong in Charleston too.
But it's an error to say that corrup
tion has only crept into the state liquor
business within the last few years.
Why, according to BenTillman, they've
been selling beer here contrary to law
for years. "Old Ben" said in a speech
last summer that all the beer dispen
saries were unlawful, which was equiv
alent to saying that any man that ran
a beer saloon was virtually a "blind
tiger." The ex-constab'c, Bahr, swore
last week that money was being handed
about to dispensary officials in big wads
at Columbia and Augusta, way back in
Ellerbe's time. Ellerbe was elected
governor in 1896.
A man named Cantey swore last week
that he received from a liquor house for
six months $300 a month for seeing that
advertisements of whiskey were kept on
bill boards around Columbia. We don't
know whether this man was a Tillman
ite or an Anti?what's that got to do
Three hundred dollars a month for
looking at the bill-boards!
Do you think that the whiskey house
paid that salary? Of course it did. But it
got the money back in the quality of
the liquor sold. This man had a brother
in-law who was a member of the board
of control. We don't know what his
But we know the politics of the State
dispensary. And so do you. It is
And they are going to pass an act

They acknowledge that they can't
get men capable of staying honest by
their own efforts to run tho concern.
So they arc going to pass an act that
will put them in straight jackets and j
hold down their hands when they would
present them to the whiskey drummers

How many honest, manly, brave
country boys, brought up by God-fear
ing men and women, have gone to Co
lumbia and accepted little or big jobs

their characters and sold their souls by
association with whiskey drummers,
"blind tigers" and "swell" dispensary
No, the corruption is not new. It has
been there from the start. Years ago
Yancey Williams, of Lancaster, a dyed
in-the-wool Tillmanite and an honest
man and gentleman, denounced dispen
sary corruption on the floor of the
Nine years ago Senator Tillman ac
knowledged that he had accepted sam
ples. It was not even against the law
then. This docs not prove that Senator
Tillman was dishonest?but with that
example of a great man before him, wo.
are not disposed to blamo poor old
"Tobe" Ferguson of Spartanbnrg for
doing the same thing after a law had
been passed against it. The Supremo
Maker of all law? parsed on that ques
tion before it reached the South Caro
Oh, no. Don't vote against the dis
| pensary, you Laurens men. You might
do some harm. You might vote the
Columbia glass factory into bank
ruptcy. You might vote the Richland
Distilling Company level with the
grouud. You might vote several million
dollars of deposits out of the Columbia
banks. You might vote the Columbia
hotels out of their liquor drummer pat
ronage. For Heaven's sake, you Laur
ens Tillmanites, be careful - you might
lay your capital city in waste and ruin!
But if you should bo so cruel and
reckless as to vote the life out of this
state liquor store, what would you
have left? Ix>cal option between county
dispensaries and prohibition. Laurens
might have its dispensary just as Ath
ens, Ga., ha3 it. Tillman got his idea
from Athens. The county runs it over
there and there is no state liquor whole
sale shop and the State of Georgia
doesn't stink with rottenness. More
over, 100 Georgia counties have prohi
bition and they enforce it.
But why is Tub Advertiser worry
ing over this matter? If the people
want the State to be run in the inter
est of Columbia and the outside liquor
dealers, with corrupt officials on the in
side as their agents, what care we?
The Advertiser can make a living.
If the people like the state dispensary,
why they ought to have it?and the
bossdom of the dispensary crowd is
good enough for those whose bellies
yearn for it.
Whiskey drinking is a dangerous
thing but we prefer unanimous drunk
ne8s to universal dishonesty, if we had
to take cither. But we don't have to
take either whin the state dispensary
Judge Hydrick has decided that the
Laurens Brice Law election was illegal.
Of course. We have no doubt that it
was. As long as we have the state dis
pensary, it isn't going to be possible to
vote out dispensaries. If the state dis
pensary is retained, whiskey will bo
voted into Cherokee and Spartanburg
and all the other "dry counties" again.
This Laurens decision is of no import
ance. The other way, it would have
been merely a temporary victory for
If we have a state dispensary we
-h?#v9 got to sell__liquor everywhere to
make it pay. If we have a state dis
pensary we shall have liquor bosses who
will arrange to sell it. They'll "bust"
the Brice law. They'll drench the state
in liquor more and more each year.
Either the state dispensary is doomed
or prohibition in all counties is doomed.
There's no half-way ground.
The magazines abound in advertise
ments, and the mails are loaded down
with circulars and prospectuses of land
and oil schemes and mining schemes,
rubber plantations in Mexico and ba
nana plantations in Cuba, and a thousand
and one get-rich-quick schemes, against
which we would warn our people. They
are, one and all, traps for the unwary.
A few lure their victims on by paying
back a dividend or two, but none of
them ever last long enough to return
your principal. Keep your money at
home, and invest it there. It is better
to do this and get a small rate, or re
ceive no interest at all, than to get
eight, ten or fifteen per cent, on it for
a short time and then lose tfcc princi
pal. An exchange puts it thus: "Up

Death of Mr. John S. Bird.

in Columbia on Tuesday, the 12th inst.,
and was buried in Charleston on Thurs

"stickers" for spellers.
Most of us have a certain sympathy
with "poor spellers"; and only a few of
us can boast of having "spelled down"
all our opponents in a "spelling school."
So the confessions and suggestions of a
number of spellers who wrote letters to
the New York Sun on "hard" and
"easy" words of value for reproof or
instruction. One correspondent's list
of "puzzling" words was: "Plaguy,
mortgagor, tranquility, deleble, ten
dinous, tessellated, camelopard, violon
cello, mattress, vilify, fusilade." An
other wrecked adventurer on the rocks
of "ei" and "ie" mentions "mullein,
sleight, cleik, pleiades, weird, presci
ence." Of proper names, "Mississippi"
and "Llewellyn" are puzzling to one;
but every heart knows it own bitter
ness, and there are pitfalls for tho best
spellers. The dictionaries reek with
words that the most accomplished
speller could but guess at; and certain
words seem to take a malicious pleasure
in eluding you. Time after time vou

"Ah," thought Dr. Watson Holmes'
understudy, as be sauntered down Mad

surance I am able to observe that prac

have just left a home where you per
formed a tonsillotomy. By way a com
ment, 1 might remark that your patient
was a full-blooded child, and that you
tackled the left tonsil first."
"Good, Watson! Surprisingly good!"
interrupted Dr. Rodgers.

Watson, "that you operated without
the use of anesthesia, the child being

"The spot of blood on your otherwise
immaculate shirt-front proved to me
that you had operated; and by its color,
on a full-blooded person. As your
specialty is throat work, I naturally
thought first of the most frequent oper
ation in that category. It was natural
to suppose the patient to have been a
child. The fact that the spot of bloo '
is situated just to the right of your
necktie suggested that you had first re
'cd the left tonsil when a sudden
cough projected the blood from the left
tonsil to the right side of your shirt.
Later in the operation with the mouth
full, the blood would have been distrib

exclamation assured me that I was
"Now the fact of the early expulsive
cough pointed to the absence of anes

sat opposite you and stained your shirt,
so high up, he or she must have been

one was a blonde lady I easily divined
from this blonde hair, which I shall now
remove from your coat, and which,
though rather short, I concluded toben
woman's by its very fine texture. Sim

As Dr. Rogers enteren his office nlone
he removed a small obstetric kit from
his hip pocket, and, as he placed it in a
drawer he observed aloud that, "it
would probably take Sherlock himself
to suspect that throat specialists in New
York were still practic ing obstetrics."

One of the incidents peculiar to the

described in the following clfpping from
The News and Courier's Columbia Cor
respondence of June 15th:
"One of the most impressive scenes
ever witnessed in the old University
chapel was the presentation of diplo
mas, conferring the degree of bachelor
of arts upon the surviving members of
the class of 1862.
In a few introductory remarks Presi
dent Sloan told how, on Saturday,
March 8, 1862, the Governor of South
Carolina called for troops. At chapel
on Monday, March 10, not a student an
swered the roll call, for every last one
of them had answered the summons.
Now, after a lapse of forty-two years,
the faculty had decided to award the
honor where honor has been so nobly
won. Out of a class of sixty, there
were seventeen left in 1865. Six of
these survive, but one of them cannot
be addressed. Ten have crossed the
river and received their reward in a
more glorious land.
THE SURVIVING MEMBERS,
upon whom the degrees were conferred
are: Milton Anderson Carlisle, Iredell
Jones, Robert Detreville Laurence,
John Thomas Moore, Henry Townsend.
Messrs. Carlisle, Jones and Moore
were present at the exercises this
morning. President Sloan presented
the diplomas for their scholarly work
and devotion to duty. Major Moore re
sponded upon behalf of his fellow class
mates. He said they would never have
had such high ideals and noble aspira
tions in defending their country if they
j had not been so fortunate as to attend
the old College. Here *heir character
had been trained, and he was glad to
see that the air of greatness and honor
still hung over the old campus which
they had left forty-two years ago to
join the Carolina regiments in defence
of Fort Sumter.
These old students received their dip
lomas amid a tremendous applause.
The exercises closed with benediction
by Father Hcgarty.
