A Slanderous Implication.
Commenting upon the probable re

election of Hon. Richard I. Manning of
Sumtei*. the Greenville Piedmont
makes this remarkable assertion:
"Prohibition next year will not be
an issue, and we trust that the liquor
question will not b, brought Into the
campaign. VVc hope Hint the people
of South Carolina will not bo soused

In 1900 the prohibitionists, in con
