Educate! Educate!! Educate!!!
Educate, educate, educate! Thai is
the way to attain comfrot, happiness |
and prosperity. This country abounds
in the richest of raw materials in for
est, Held and mine; inn by far the lieh
est raw material of which it can h;i\e
any conception Is com pre bended in the
minds of our hoys and girls. It is not
fair to siiy that these minds left nude- 1
veloped will make criminals, tor that |
is not true. The spirit of the \i
mighty Cod has (?n breathed into
the souls of most n! them, and that
saves them for good forever. Ilul God
has never intended that any Of Ills
creatures should reach spontaneous
perfection. The very Rowers of the
field are not permitted to do anything
of the kind. The birds of the nlr may.
and so also may (he beasts of the for
ests: hut it is not difficult to show (hat
even these have been im;.roved by COU
tart with man. Absolutely certain,
however, is it thai "in- human mind
can never approach perfection except 1
by means of education. No individual ,
can hope through his own experience
or meditation to cov< any eonsldera- i
hie portion of the range of human
wisdom. Education puts all knowl

If it accuralcl.v represents Senator
Tlllmnn's attitude towards the prose
cution of men charged v?;ih graft and
corruption in connection with the old
state dispensary, the senator no lon
ger deserves lo be honored by South
Carolinians. For a a.an honored as
Senator Tillman has been honored by
the people of his state, ai.d lifted up
by them before t!:< eyes of the nation
its their representative in congress, to
make such a statement brings more
dishonor on the commonwealth than
the acquittal of grafters. it places
Tillman squarely on the side of those
who have robbed the stitte. and against
those officials of commonwealth who
are proving true to their oath and
endeavoring to uphold the law and
punish dishonesty.?Spartanburg Her
Says the l.aurcns Advertiser: "In
I'.Mlfi, S< Untor Tillman slumped the
stale trying to save the dispensary; :
The Slate and The News and Courier
were meanwhile pouring volley after
volley of hot shot' into its crumbling
sides. In 1909, Senator Tillman is
preaching prohibition and the two bin
dailies nre defending the dispensary, j
Think it over."
We should not denominate that as
an elucidating presentation id" the
fails. The dispensary The State
fought in I90C is- dead beyond resurrec- I
lion, it was never defended by The
State, and never will he. The State
is not now and has never been the
champion of county dispensaries. The
state is defending local option, for
which it fought in 190(5 when it helped
kill the dispensary, and for which the
people of South Carolina voted in

As long as (he COUllty dispensaries
are conducted decently and honestly,
it should be a question for the people
in each County to determine whether
they will permit the legal sale of
liquor. When the administration of
a county dispensary becomes corrupt,
when the grafters establish themselves
there, then the majority should de
clare against the system. Blind ti
gers are preferable to corruption.
