Mr. Fcathcrstone Interviewed
Greenwood, March 15.?Hon. C. C.
Featherstone, of Laurens C H., passed
through yesterday, and while here was
questioned as to his attitude on the
matter of prohibition in the coming
campaign. Mr. Featherstone stated
that he was for prohibition without any
provisos or conditions to it. In conncc -
tion, he stated that he had made his
f)osition clear about a month ngo, when
10 stated that he was for straight-out
Mr. Featherstone stated that four or
live months ago he gave an interview
on the subject, advocating for the pres
ent the enactment of a law making the
entire State dry, but permitting coun
ties where prohibition sentiment was
weak to vote on the sale of whisky.
Continuing, he said: "A great majority
of my prohibition friends in the State
endorsed my views.
"1 stated in that interview that, of
course, what we ultimately sought was
ironclad, State-wide prohibition; and,
further, that in my judgment the time
was not far off when the State would
lie ready for it; and, further, that
when there was sufficient public senti
ment behind it, I would then be in fa
vor of State-wide prohibition.
"Since giving out thac interview I
have been in close touch with prohibi
tionists throughout the State, endeavor
ing to ascertain the present strength
of the sentiment and making diligent
inquiry as to the enforcement of the
law in dry counties. I have also been
.studying the reports of the dispensary
auditor, and to my amazement I find
that the county dispensaries are selling
almost as much liquor as did the old
State dispensary when it was in full
blast. They sold in the last year three
million dollars' worth of liquor. In ad
dition to this, I find that the dispensary
counties are selling tremendous quanti
ties of whisky to contiguous dry terri
"In this state of affairs I have deter
mined to stump the State this year, ad
vocating straight-out prohibition. The
only way to find out the strength of
the prohibition sentiment is to submit
the question squarely to the people. If
0 majority of the people are in favor of
State prohibition then we will give it
an honest, fair trial.
"The prohibitionists of the State are
not fanatics: but, on the contrary, are
sensible, practical men.
"If the practical workings of a State
prohibition law should demonstrate that
it was impossible to enforce it in cer
tain counties where the sentiment is
weak then it will be a very easy mat
ter to tack on a local option feature
permitting those counties, under the
most rigid restrictions, to vote in the
sale of whisky. 'Sufficient unto the
dav is the evil thereof.'
"What we want," continued Mr.
Featherstone, "is to give a general
prohibition law an honest, fair trial."
Mr. Featherstone said in regard to
the present law: "We have a substi
tute for the old dispensary law that is
nothing but a reproduction of the old
system on a smaller scale." In time
he thinks this substitute will develop
all the bad features of the old law.
He also said that so far as he was
personally concerned ho would prefer
not to run this year; but 'his prohibi
tion friends insist that tho time is ripe,
that he agrees with them hs to condi
tions, and that he feels he must re
spond to what he regards as a great
He stated that he hoped the qucs
tion of prohibition or no prohibition
would be submitted to the people in
Gie primary, and he hoped the State
Democratic Executive Committee
would have this done. "The people,"
he said," "have a right to vote upon
this question and settle it at the bal
lot box, and there is no other practical
way of presenting the cause to the peo
ple other than from the stump during
I he campaign."
"1 am for straight-out prohibition,"
said Mr. Featherstone, in conclusion.

Must Have Hunting License.
The News and Courier has received
The Legislature of South Carolina
provided for a license for non-resident
hunters many years ago. This license
was fixed at $25 but was seldom, if
ever, collected. The amount was re
duced at the session of 1907 to $10, with
25 cents fee to the clerks of the courts
for issuing said licenses. Practically
every State in the Union has a non
resident license, and some of them ex
act a license of $50. In others the li
cense is good for only one county, and
has to be renewed in each county the
The Audubon Society of South Caro
lina has labored under many difficulties
in trying to collect this non-resident li
cense. The old law permitted a guest
to hunt without paying this license, and
sonic are not aware of the change. If
a man's guests were allowed to hunt
without license then there would, be an
end of license, for each and every in
comer would be a guest of somebody.
This may, in some individual cases,
work hardship; but it is perhaps im
possible to point to a regulation of any
kind that would not work hardship to
The State's right to exact this li
cense has been passed on by the United
States supreme court and settled for all
time. The money collected from non
resident licenses goes into the hands of
the State treasurer, where it is placed
to the credit of the "game protection
fund," and is drawn out and used for
enforcing the game laws. All good
citizens should insist on visitors paying
this license, and report them when they
fail to pay it.
Between three and four thousand
men come into South Carolina annually
to hunt, ^ut this year the merest frac
tion of them will pay license. The Au
dubon Society has pursued the policy
this year of not prosecuting a man who
hunted without license provided he paid
the license on demand. Hereafter all
parties found hunting without license
will be indicted and fined for each day
they hunt without license.
There are sufficient non-resident li
censes to support a vigorous enforce
ment of the game laws if these licen
ses are collected. In the present in
stance the weakness of the Society has
been presumed on and its confidence has
been generally abused.
The natural and inevitable presump
tion for the future will he that the
man who hunts without license is try
ing to evade the payment.

"One Touch of Nalurc Makes the Whole

Catarrh is an entirely unnecessary

It, is a germ trouble, and the remedy is
Hyomei, which medicates the air you
breathe, killing all catarrhal germs.
As there is life and health in the air

and healing balsams, so there is life
and health in breathing Hyomei.
