away whatever issue or Issues existed
in the Urs! primary. There Is a fresh
start. There Is no measure before the
people of South Carolina to be given
emphasis by their vote. The question
now is of men.
And the iweti are C. ('. Teat herstoiie
and Colo I.. Blouse. The question is
between them: Which Is better lit ted
to occupy the governor s mansion and
to exercise the powers of a chief exe
cutive? In which of them should those
people W bo love law and order, ami
dignity, and high standards, ami who
would throw protecting arms about

give their trust','
A great light was made in South
Carolina four years ago. Hairing, per
haps, the light against deluded negroes
and scalawags in ISTti, a greater light
for decency and against corruption has i
not been made in South Carolina. That
The State has a conspicuous part
among the workers and was recog
nized as a leader of workers in a cam
paign resulting in the overthrow of
the Stale dispensary system, reeking
with corruption, is one of the most
prized chapters in this newspaper's re
Tin light against the dispensary was
waged to kucqoss under the banner of
lot :il option. Some local optlonists
protest that I hey can not now vote
for a prohibitionist. Wo say thai that
issue is by force of circumstances,'
eliminated and that the views of the
Individual nre Immaterial at this time.
Hut If local optlonists yet hesitate, we
ask them to contemplate the position
of Candidate Dlensc when the real lo
cal option light was made. Where was
Caudidnto Bleuso when the lines were
formed against the corrupt dispensary?
Where w.is Candidate Blensc win n lo

Need we say ho whs entrenched with

afier the annihilation of his dispen

fought ngainst that corrupt and cor
rupting thing, would entrust lender

Cole L, HI en Re, candidate for gov
ernor, was an active and persistent
supporter of the Old State dispensary
bending bis every energy to the last
moment to save the Institution in nil
its rottenness and corruption. The

passed into oblivion. It is but fitting
that a similar judgment in* passed on

Who"! pet th ? McLcod vote? That
is the question of deepest interest just
at this time, and on the outcome de
pends who Is to h" the next governor
of South Carolina. It Hyatt's and
Richards' followers lined up behind
these gentlemen as champions of
Prohibition It stands to reason that
the bulk of this vote amounting to
something between !?',0f)0 and 10,000
votes, will go to Mr. Peatherstone.
If the bulk of Mr. McLeod's strength,
however, be composed of simon-pure
lovers of local option. Mr. Mease he
ilig a champion of ihc same doctrine,
may be regarded as Mr, McLeod's
just and legitimate heir. The question
of personality, though will enter in.
and here is just where Featherstone
will win. although Mease is wonder
fully magnetic, and will command not
' a few votes for personal reasons.-?
Peatherstone >vill Win.
This, then, is the political situation
i as it now presents itself. Summed up
in a few words, the probabilities are
that in the second primary Mr
Peatherstone will win. If so ho will
be elected on accoutti of his personal.
Ity and In spite of his prohibition
views. If so, it will bo bee; us. of
the material assistance rendered him
by the men whob nve been the sup
porters of MCLood, ti;e local optionist.

be realized and ho comes next January
