* Dispensary Reduces Drinking.
To the Editor of The Abbeville Me
I thank you for giving space to my
communication upon the dispensary
question, and ask your readers to go
a Ht?e more Into detail in the matter.
I have shown the three arguments
made in favor of re-establishing the
1. That it will promote trade;
2. That It) will stop violation of the
3. That It will reduce drinking;
4. That It will bring a protlt to the
I have given an answer to each of
theae arguments, save the third which
I desire to consider In this communi
In answer to the tlrst, I have shown
that It is an effort to exploit drinking
men for the profit of few promoters
of the dispensary institution.
To the second, my answer was, that
the claim Is a fallacy.
To the fourth, in answer I display
ed its Inconsistency.
Now, In order to give positive ro
?dy to the argument that "more whis
key is drunk under prohibition than
under the dispensary," I desire to sub
mit facts and figures from the official
"ecords. The dispensary was retained
'n Abbeville for several years after
it had been voted out of neighboring
eountico. Its last two years In Abbe
ville were 1908 and 1909.
The records In the city clerk's of
*ee for the month of February. 1908
nnd 1909 and for the last four years
jnder prohibition show the following
number of arrests for drunkenness:
1908 . .29 (I)lBpensnry.)
1909 .37 (Dispensary.)
1913 ........ 4 (Prohibition.)
'Please notice, for the month
February during the two last years of
tbe dispensary, there were 66 arrests
'or dunkenness, while for the same
months during the whole four years
ander prohibition, there were only 26
If we will take the two last years
4>f prohibition and contrast the record
with the two last years of dispensary,
tho figures will be
Dispensary tiwo years.66
Prohibition two years.7
Regarding Express Shipments.
/jet us also go Into the question of
express shipments for the yenrs tin-'
der prohibition, and see whether the
advocates of dispensary fairly repre
sent the case.
The records of the Southern Ex
press company for the Abbeville
agency show for the month of Febru
ary during the last three years, un
der the prohibition law, the number
of packages received approximately
were as follows:
Now, what conclusion is to be
reached from these figures? There,
can be only one, namely: There la
less drunkenness under present con
ditions than under the dispensary;
and there Is less whiskey shipped In
now than formerly, the amount Grow
ing much loss year by year.
Nor are we left only with the rec
ords of the city court and the ex
press office. There is the indisputable
record of the criminal court of the
county. For the last two years, crime
has been so greatly decreased, there
has been no need of a summer term
of the court.
Facts are stubborn things; but wise
men recognize them as unanswerable.
Voters of Abbc.ille county, ponder
these things. These utterances are
not mere theories, they are facts
facts taken from official records.
Of course, I have not touched the
moral and civic questions involved
These will bo treated In other com.
