HAS STOOD FIRMLY
Mr. HriHtow Knlr.is Record and
Shows Why Luurcns .Mhii Should
he Elected Governor.
In an Interview, published a few
dnys ago in the Columbia State, the
Rev. Louis J. Urlstow of Wllllamston,
wlio has been prominently Indentlfed
with the prohibition movement in
South Carolina for a number of years,
declared that a prohibition candidate
will be elected governor this year.
"I had hoped that the prohibitionists
would go Into the primary this year
With only one candidate for governor,"
said Mr. ISristow, "but I see by the pa
pers that there will be at least two in
the race who will espouse the cause
of State-wide prohibition. While I
know prohibition sentiment has grown
greatly In South Carolina during the
past 12 years, and while I do not doubt
the election of a prohibitionist to be
governor, yet I would like to see only
one candidate, that the total prohibi
tion vote might he cast for him. Fur
thermore 1 would like to bee that
candidate be C. C. Featherstone. He
is the logical exponent of prohibition
ists, being the most prominent prohi
bitionist in the state, and one of whose
sincerity there can he no question, and
of whose ability and fitness no one
"Mr. Feathcrstone'B record on the
question is long and consistent,
Twelve years ago he ran for governor
on the prohibition platform when It
was not popular in the state, and a
change of 1,500 votes then would have
mado him governor. Ho has stood
firmly and fought well ever since.
Four years ago he wah urged to run
again, but he felt l tat llrst of all the
old state dispensary should be de
stroyed, to accomplish which was
needed the combined strength of all
its opponents. Two years ago his
notable correspondence with Qov. An
sel revealed the governor's intention
to advocate and recommend the re
versed local option law, which was, in
effect, what Mr. Featherstone had out
lined as, at that time, a desirable poli
cy for state-wido prohibitionists to
Mr. Featherstone Is preeminently
the man for the prohibitionists," con
tinued Mr. Histow. "He is a splen
did campaigner, as was shown in 1808,
when he opposed some of the best
speakers In the state, and successful
politicians, and defeated them all save
Qov. Ellerbe, who had the second
term sentiment in his favor, as well as
the dispensary at his back."
Mr. BlistOW declared that Mr. Foath-I
erstone's record on prohibition Is so
well known that this will be but a
small factor in Iiis campaign this sum

.>Ia> or of Spartanburg Imposes Fines
Spartanburg .March 10.?All rec
ors for heavy fines ami long prison
sentences for municipal courts in the
United States were broken when Ooo.
Dearmnn, whose name appears often
in police court annals, was found
guilty of violating the State prohibi
tion laws on one hundred and sixty
six counts, and given the limit of the
law in each case, $100 or thirty days,
by Mayor J. 11. Lee, in police court
this morning. His sentences aggre
gate $16,600, or 4,980 days, a little
over fourteen years.
The case against Dearman grew
out of a raid made by Lieutenant No
len and Privates Merrill and McAbee
Wednesday night, when the defend
ant's home on Wofford street was
searched and 166 pints of liquor were
seized. The liquor, it Is said, was
found in a trunk. The police made
out a crop against Dearman for every
pint of liquor they found in his home,
which they claim they had a right to
do under the city ordinanco against
When tho case was called beforo
Mayor Lee this morning R. A. Ilnnnon
appeared for the defendant. The at
torney stated that he was ready for
trial and the testimony of police offi
cers was beard. After all the evidence
was In, Mayor Leo found the defend
ant guilty In 166 cases and sentenced
his to pay a fine of $100 or serve
30 days In each case. Mr. Hannon
gave notice of appeal and nsked that
his client be released on bond, which
was granted, bond being fixed in the
sun of $200. Ball was arranged.
Tho case will probably bo threshed
out In the supreme court. The po
lice claim that If tho ordinance, under
which the cases were made out
against Dearman holds good in the
supremo court, tho police department
will be able to put a stop to the sale
of liquor in Spartanburg.
Tho case Is In many respects one
of tho most unique that has ever boon
tried In a police court In tho state
and certainly never beforo has a po
lice court judge ever Imposed a fino
of $16,000 or 14 years for tho Infrac
tion of a city ordinance. The final
disposition of the case will bo watch
