If you are subject to constipation,
you should avoid strong drugs and

If Merit Im Recognized Lyoii Shull lie
Tho Laurens Advertiser suys The
Manning Times only knows Col. C. C.
Featherstone as a prohibition leador; :
which Is partly true, it also knows him
to be a pretty Rood politician, ami a
man who makes a very good stump
speech. He came into public notoriety !
when Mr. Joel K. Hrunson the chosen
leader of the prohibitionists took cold
feet and abandoned the fight as soon '
as the gaffs began to be put to him,
then Featherstone stepped to the front
and taking up the deserted colors went
on with the light, and he came within
u stones throw of winning, not that
his cause was so popular but the man
had winning ways and a sweet tongue.
We would not disparage the candidncy j
of Col. Featherstone, personally we
have u kind regard for him, but when
it comes to the selection of governor,
then perhaps It would be well to wait
to take n look at the entries before de-'
elding. While, as we have said In a ;
previous issue, it appears that. Feath
erstone "lias the coon and gone on"
yet it after all depends on the temper
of the people when the campaign Is
opened. If the. politicians and the
church leaders combine then there is
no doubt that. Featherstone is a win
ner; the politicians will gludly join
the Featherstone forces If he can de- j
liver the church influence, but If the
general masses resent the scheme of
using the churches to bolster up the
aspirations of politicians, then the pen
dulum will swing the other way and
Featherstone will he justified In ex
claiming "Qod suvo tue from my
Then there Is another view to lake
of this matter, what has Col, Feather
stone ever done to entitle him to he the
chief executive, of the state? Has he !
ever dono the statt; any special ser
vice, except that for which he has re
ceived a monied compensation? There
are men who have and are still rend
ering service to the state, who by I
rights have something to go to the pco- j
pie with. Take the case of Attorney '
General Lyon, He has worked fori
the state's interests and is entitled to j
promotion, should he become ,i ^nidi
tlate for governor, we believe that the
ocople who appreciate true and loyal
iervice, such as the attorney general
has rendered the state, will vote for
j iim on the ground that he has mer- \
I ted the gratitude of the people of j
3outb Carolina by his able, conscien
? ions, and persistent discharge of duty,
j While we huve not approved of all the
methods employed by tho attorney gen
eral, yet wo appreciate the fact he
is iu a better position to judge what
was best, at the same time, we have
always conceded his ability and his |
honesty, aud never once put him in
the same class as along with those
who were playing to the galleries for
political effect only; wo have ull a
long believed Lyon was pulling for
the governorship and his success in
the graft cases would help his cause; |
this he had a right to do. he had a 1
right to work for a prize and he Is
now entitled to it if he wants It or
any other position in the gift of the
voters of the state. Thereforo we say
Col. Feathers'one may have the gover
norship "cinched" now. but it depends
on whether or nnf. he has opposition,
and who his opponent is before he
can feel sure of the result In the prim
