COOPKK FOR DISTRICT ATTORNEY
"We want t.> nominate for district
attorney to succeed Mr. Cochran, Soli
citor R. A. Cooper, of Laurens. Soli
citor Cooper has been the State's
prosecuting attorney in tho eighth cir
cuit for the past seven and a half
years. He has been faithful, able and
fearless in the discharge of his duty,
and has shown that he is eminently
qualified for any position In this line
of work with which lie may he honor
ed or which he may honor."
The above taken from the Newber
ry Herald and News is to the point
and we rise to second the motion. Mr.
Cooper lias made an enviable reputa
tion as solicitor, and his fearlessness
in prosecuting law breakers and duti
ful attention to his office together with
bis well known capability as a lawyer
well tit him for district attorney. The
people of Laurens county would cheer
fully welcome Boeing a Laurens man
In this office, for they are sure Mr.
Cooper Sill rellect credit upon him
self, the county and the office.

DISPENSARY IN UNION.
For the greater body of law-abiding
and self-respecting citizens of Union
county, enthusiasm over the victory of
Wilson and Marshall must have been
considerably dan netted when the out
come of the election over the local Is
sue of dispensary or no-dispensary
showed a defeat for those who opposed
the re-establishment of the dispensary
in that county. They must feel pecu
liarly downcast and humiliated over
the defeat, not only because of the ef
fect upon Union county Itself, but be
cause of the position which Union
now occupies in the eyes of the rest
of tba state, being pointed to as the
first of the counties to re-establish a
system so perniciously rotten and ad
mittedly debasing. Union, however, is
reaping the reward due It because of
the lax enforcement and disregard of
the lAw, especially the dispensary law.
Why Union dounty has allowed Itself
to ho made the scape-goat of its law
less element, we cannot understand.'^
but certainly the present unhappy
state of affairs over thore Is due to
the fact that the better element In Un-?
Ion county has allowed Itself to alt
idly by and let the lawless clement
run things their own why. In the
early stages of Union's transition
from one of the most law-abiding
countlea to one of the least law-abid
ing countlen, the march of the blind
tigers and other law breakers could
have been stopped if the better ele
ment of the people had taken the trou
ble to fight them as they have' been
fought in the past few weeks. Once
however, the blind-tigers were in con
trol of affairs, thoy could not be down
ed. There is no doubt in our mind
but that the law has been but laxly
enforced iu Union county, in order
that the old argument could be put
forth that "prohibition does not pro
hibit" and that it were better to get
Che revenue and the liquor together
rather than the liquor alone.
The newspapers of Union have al
ways fought the lawless element with
ungloved hands and one of them, "The
Times," suffered considerable material
loss through an incendiary fire as a
result of its activities. We hope and
believe that they will not give up the
light for securing better things in
Every county In the state is con
fronted with the same dangers that
Union has been congronted with and
to which she has fallen a victim.
There are those In Laurens county, ev
ftii., right here at home, who would
"delight to see the dispensary re-estab
lished. There are those who walk the
streets of Laurens every day who
would open a blind tiger tomorrow if
they thought that the sheriff, the so
licitor and the jurors would be lax
with them. They are here with us to
day and we ehould all be ready to fight
them for once an entorlng wedge is se
cured, Laurens Will be in the same
plight 83 Union is today, with the law
less element in control of affairs and
a great many misguided and unin
formed, but right minded, citizens up
holding thein, because they think that
the liquor traffic cannot be put down
and that the legalized sale of liquor Is
the only solution of the blind-tiger

Therefore, be It resolved:
First. That though bereaved by her
removal, we bow In humble submis

Second. That the Aid Society of the
Waterloo Baptist church has lost one
of Its most consecrated and useful
members, for she was ever faithful
in the. discharge of her duty and
counted it a pleasure to give her love
and life to the service of the Master.
Third. That we extend to her bereaved
husband, children and relatives, our
sincerest sympathy, and pray God's
richest blessings upon them in their

A VICTORY Of THE WHOLE COUNTRY
(New York Times.)
South Carolina and Massachusetts. Boston and Charleston. Fort Sumter
and Faneull Hall, the Puritan and the Huguenot and Cavalier, blue blood and
red blood?It is all the same; the country is "reunited, again," for the third
or fourth time since the Washington Light Infantry paraded at Hunker Hill
and the Iloston Tigers fraternized on the Battery. State lines have been
obliterated. Maine salutes New Mexico, California shakes hands with Ixnilsl
ana. and the words and music of "Where Holls the Oregon" and "Way Down
Upon the S'wanee Bluer" arc the common songs of the plain people who
have come into their own at last.
Most wonderful of all that has happened In the political life of this
rountry in more than half a century, the triumphant, host is led by a South
ern man, a Virginian by birth, a Carolinmn and Georgian by residence and
education, a citizen of the world, and the governor of a Northern State. For
the first time since Abraham Lincoln, a man of Southern birth will be the
chief magistrate of the I'nited States by the choice of all their people.
The South, however, was not necessary to the election of Woodrow Wil
son. He could spare every electoral vote In th South without Impairing his
title to the office of president, and it is in this non-sectional aspect that his
triumph is the greatest ever won by a public man in our history. Even bet
ter than this. If It be possible to conceive of anything better. Is the non-parti
san character of his victory. Tens of thousands of voters in all parts of the
country broke away from old party associations and ca^t their ballots for
The election was so nearly unanimous that Mr. Wilson Is not bound to
any particular state or section or party for his election. He will be all the
better able to administer the government in the Interest of the whole people
and with an eye single to the growth and prosperity of the I'nited States. It
was a Virginian who achieved the Independence of the Colonies; it was a
Kentucklan who "saved the Union"; It is a Virginian to whom has been re
served the honor and duty of building upon the old foundations a new and
larger American commonwealth.
