A Hoyt, takes the position that all of
the candidates for governor have
changed their position on the liquor
question during the last few years,
and asks, why attack one and not the
other? That is our position exactly.
As to Mr. Peatherstone, we fail to see
Where he has in the least showed in
consistency. Pike the rest of US, he
has only favored local option as "a
means to an end" of the nefarious
liquor system. There can be no long
er any doubt as to the majority ol
South Carolinians being disgusted
with the sale of liquor in any shape
or form. The State was opposed to

temporary the right to champion the
cause of any candidate it sees lit. but
we stand for right against the wrong,
and we lirmly believe that The State
is going out of its way to defeat Mr.
The Torrens System.
We take it for granted that-the can

quainted with the basic principles of
i the Torrens system of land registra
tion, but if they are not we trust they
will take the little trouble necessary
to inform themselves between now

their time to the discussion of the

If the fact that Walterboro has ad
vanced so much in one year of pro

The fact that the Columbia State
has published about Mr. Featlierstone
witli reference to his wise and judi
cious efforts lo promote prohibition in
South Carolina, only seem to urge bis
fitness for tho governorship. If the
state realy desires to urge .Mr.

Mr. Featlierstone Not Inconsistent.
The Columbia State has signally
failed to make good its charge of in
consistency against lion. C. C. Featli
The State charged that Mr. Feather
stone, now the prohibition candidate
for governor, had at one time advo
cated local option.
This is true, but it is also true that
Mr. Featlierstone said at the time that
in- favored local option only as a
means to an end as a step toward
complete' State-wide prohibition.
As the Yorkviiie Enquirer points
out. Mr. Featlierstone has always
stood for prohibition, even when fa
voring local option as the best thing
obtainable at that time.
And as The Enquirer points out.
Mr. Featlierstone realizes, as others
do. that the cause of prohibition must
go forward. It cannot stand still. Un
less the whole State is made dry those
counties which are now dry may go
back to selling liquor.
The fight for prohibition has been a
long and hard one. Mr. Featlierstone
was among the first In the State to
advocate the cause of prohibition, and
he has never wavered and has nevoi
The State ought to know this as
well as anybody else. Certainly it has
fallen down in its attempt to prove
Mr. Featlierstone inconsistent. It lias
not deceived anybody, for the record
in the matter is too fresh ami too
vivid for anybody to forgot it.
At the same time we cannot go as
far as the Yorkviiie paper, when it
charges The State with opposing local
opt'oil simply because it favors the
sale of liquor and wants the sale of
liquor to be continued. We believe
The State honestly believes each '
county should have the right to settle
this question for itself, without caring
very much about the sale of liquor one
way of another. We believe The
State honestly believes this to be a
great principle, but as we see it, it is
a principle not worth contending for.
Local self-government is a good
thing, in a way, but the will of the
majority of the intelligent people of
the State is a much better thing.
And that Is a part of the platform ,
upon which Mr. Featlierstone is mak
ing the campaign for governor.?An
In moments of calm reasoning Mr.
Featlierstone does not think the use
of liquor is debauching to public mor
als. He finds the use legitimate in
Oenesia, and he finds it legitimate at
tills time, by law and custom, in every
Civilized country 00 earth. And hi:'. !e :
Kal lore assures b/ra that the legal\
sale of that which is universal legiti
mate use is not "debauching to public
There is no escape from the conclu
sion that the State is reasoning calm
ly, but as to whether it is trying to
reason sensibly is another question.
We would be surprised ?ii that Mud of
talk, even fiom a reputable wholesale
liquor dealer, much less a man like
Mr. Featherstone. There is;, legitimate
use for intoxicating liquor just as
there are legitimate uses for strych
nine, arsenic, localne, opium, etc, and
the legitimate uses are incidentally re
ferred to at several places in the Milde
To which of the Qehesht references
the State refers as legitimate, we are
b it only to our own assumption, and
shout the oui: 'bine that occurs to us
as properly Utting in with the gener
al tenor of its argument is the story
of Noah's daughters making their fath
er drunk with wine and their purpose
therefor. 11* there was ever a more
perfect agency for the debauching of
public morals, we have never heard of
it. Every page of the history of the
South Carolina dispensary lu>;us evi
dence of this fact, and we can conceive
of bul few things m6r< astonishing
than that a South Carolina newspaper
COUld even suggest otherwise. ''"he
time was when the use of liquor was
legitimate In every civilized country.
The time was in this country when it
was a matter of course, for preachers
even to got drunk at weddings; but
thai time happily has passed, and
there is not a civilized government oil
earth today that is not considering the
restriction of the liquor traffic as one
1 of the most serious questions with
which it has to deal. And if it is not
all because the liquor traffic is de
bauching to public morals, and to pub
lie health, we do not know the reason,
for there is no other reasonable
ground on which the traffic can or
could be fought. -Yorkville Enquirer.
