* THE TIMES CONTRASTED. *
Rlchland and Alken keep, up their
crime reocrd. Surely what is going
on in these two counties will attract
the attention of thoughtful, reading
people and arouse them to a keon
sense of the vast difference in the
matter of law and order In these and
in those counties that now forbid the
sale of liquor. It Is true there is
some liquor sold on the sly hero, but
with the active and cffcient sheriff and
deputies With a splendid rural police,
hacked with a wholesome public sen
timent, the occupation of the blind
tiger in Laurens is almost gone.
Yes, there's a littlo liquor selling,
as there is some gambling, some theft,
and other violation of law, but fair
minded persons, after having three
years' experience of the closed saloon,
will undertake to say that there has
not been an improvement beyond com
parison or expectation.
The last year of Its existence the
dispensary sold $1:18,000 worth of
liquor. That much money, a thous
and times worse than if it had been
cast into the midst of the soa. The
liquor advocates took fits over the
questicfi of revenue, said schools
would go down. llehold, the new
school houses and school work pros
pering as never beforo. $1118,000! ten
times more than all that Is expressed
here. Hundreds have deposits now in
our banks where it went to the dls
pensnry before. But the money part
of it is the least part. When you stop
the salo of ono quart, or one gallon,
you may save ono boy, ono home, ono
mother, of ono night's agony?save
oh?-plaintive"heartrending cry "Oh!
Where's my boy tonight?"
The man that has seen the chang
ed conditions from November 1908 to
September, 1911, no longer has any
excuse, should the question ever come
up again, that he does not know which
is best. The person that has any part
of his eye sight left can always tell
the difference betwixt day and night
?darkness and light.
In desperate straits the liquor ad
vocate talks about sumptuary laws.
Why, poor fellow, nobody wants to
prescribe what you shall eat or drink,
or how you shall be clothed." It is your
privelege to drink liquor. If you are
drinking to excess good men and wom
en would like to persuade you to stop,
but not force you. But you must not
forget that your right to drink never
carries with it the right to put up a
saloon and thereby set a snare or net.
in which the feet of tho boy In kneo
breeches, or the man full grown In
years but irresponsible, may become
entangled forever. A place where ten
thousand negroes may get their sup
plies of drink to inflame the bad pas
sions of a race that because of en
vironment for hundreds of years, to
gether with peculiar social character
istics are sorely deficient in moral
self-restraint. There has been a net
saving of many thousands in enforc
ing the law since the dispensary was
closed ,but if it had cost thous
ands to enforce it, it would have been
well spent If only on account of this
In regard to enforcing the law here
In our county, did you know my read
er, that for every blind tiger in Lau
rens there is five to ten in Hichland
or Alken? How do I know? I know
by tho records of their courts. We
know of their crimes and disorder by
these records and by newspaper re
ports notwithstanding the fact of the
papers (In their intense anxiety for
revenue from liquor) suppressing re
ports of many of these liquor disor
ders. So now, take this home, dont
forget Ulchland and Alken not only
have their open saloons but many
times more blind tigers than Laurons
or Greenwood, or Greenville, or any
other county where the open salo of
liquor has been put In the category of
those things that are forbidden by the
Hichland and Alken have not only
criminal court docket piled up with
murders and all manner of crime and
disorder caused directly or indirect
ly, by liquor, but with scores of con
victions for the illicit sale of liquor.
Everybody knows there was five times
or ten times more blind tigers here in
Laurens In dispensary days than now.
