AMONQ TUE EXCHANGF.S |
The Unregenerato VI?*?.
On high moral grounds The I .an
i'eno Advertiser, which advocates
State prohibition, agrees with The
NewH and Courier, whose view is un
regenerate, that, the State dispensary
commission .should pay the debts
eontrac.ted by ?the State dispensary
directors for the whiskey that they
bought, because the State authorized
">heir purchase by law. The News
-nd Courier Is gratified to discover
that at loast one prohibition author
ity "concurs in the result.'* its the
Justices of the Supreme court would
aay; namely, that a purchase of whls
ney lawfully made o i credit carries
with It an obligation to pay Cur
l.aureus contemporary, however, be
lieves that the dispensary law was,
unconstitutional, but that "the mo
rality" of the debts Incurred under
ic is none the loss established. in
other words, The Advertiser, while
K In aure that the State dispensary
was a gigantic blind tiger, thinks
?hat because It operated under the
eolor of law. Its obligations are bind
ing. We suppose that by the same
t'Tocesa of reasoning the debts due
? o a blind tiger openly defying the
law would be binding in The Adver
tiser's opinion, as it rests its conclu
sion on morality in distinction rroin
legality. Our prohibitionist friends
are. therefore, driven to the conclu
sion that the State .should pay for
liquors used to destroy homes, to
-ncourago and promote murder and
other crimes and to corrupt the body
In this Connection, it may be worth
while to Impress upon the "winding
up Commission" that under the terms
of the State dispensary Act "all alco
holic liquora. whether manufactured
within this State or elsewhere, not
jiaving been tested by the chemist of
the South Carolina college and found
?o be pure ami free from poisonous,
hurtful and deleterious matters.'' were
thereby "declared to be of a detrimen
tal character and their use and con
sumption against the moral-., good
health and safety of the State. All
wicked liquors were absolutely out
lawed by the Act, which also consti
tuted the chemist of the South Caro
lina college the sole arbiter in re
gard to those "good.-."' The com
mission, therefore, in considering the
claims of whiskey houses, should de
pend especially upon the evidence of
Ihe chemist of the South Carolina
college in passing upon th- legality
of the claims, and it apparently is
not bound in conscience to pay for any
lictuors that the chemist does not
a wear were wholly free ol the in
nirlous qualities indicate.|.
HYoni the point of view of the pro
hibitionists wo suppose that the chem
ist could have found no alcoholic li
quors that were not "hurtful." Put
bs we understand from The Adver
tiser, the prohibitionists will forbear
to raise that point We would Im
press, however, that a whiskey house
which sold liquors that failed to
measure to the test of virtu.- pre
icribed by the chemist is entitled to
no consideration I he whiskey bouses
?hance and sold liquors containing
Knew the law. and if they look a
banco and nold llpuors containing
poisonous, hurtful aal deleterious
.natters," they will have no right to

lUt of court. The law did not con
? emplate a sale of whiskey containing
?ome good and some bad ingredients.
fk whiskey with slight infusions of
poisonous and hurtful matter was in
violation of tbe law. and whe.it!
recalls the character of the stuff that
the State dispensary handled on.- is
in despair for these claimants.
