Pity the Unpainted House!
Would you go out in the pouring rain wearing
your best clothes if you had no protection
such as an umbrella or raincoat? Not if you
could help it, you say.
Yet some people expose expensive material to
the elements without adequate protection.
The building material' in your house is ex
pensive and should be protected. Otherwise
it will be ruined as surely as the fine clothes
you wouldn't wish to wear out in the rain.
Dampness causes decay in wood-work. If
you keep out the dampness you keep away
decay. Paint made with
Atlantic White Lead
(Dutch Boy Fainter Trade Mark)
and Pure Linseed Oil
?will keep away dampness and prevent decay.
We sell it. Come in and have a talk with us
about painting. ^ ' /

Agent Gulf Refining
Uov. Blouse Says there is No Further
Need of Their Services after De
cree of Supreme Court.
Columbia, May l.">. As a result of
the decision of the Supreme Court on
the Webb law, announced yesterday
afternoon, Qov. Blease said this af
ternoon there was no use for him to
continue to keep State constables 111
operation and he addressed a letter to
his constables, telling them that he
would have no use for their services
after the 1st of June.
There is no statute by the State pro
hibiting the importation of liquor from]
another State for personal use, and
the Webb Act gives the State the
right to enact such a statute if it so
I desires is the opinion of the South
Carolina Supreme court.
When asked about the decision of
the Supreme Court In the Web. case,
and its effect upon his policy, the
Governor so id:
"Well, of course, I am not surprised
at the decision. However, I regret
as much as it is possible fur a man
to regret that the Court saw fit to ren
der this decision. If that was the
Court's idea of the law, I wish it had
done as it lias done in thousands of
other cases, held up the decision and
delayed and delayed.
"I have had more trouble and worry
In the last two or three months with
complaints as to blind tigers than one
poor fellow can stand. I have had my
constabulary force full, my detectives
at work, and recently counties have
been calling on me to send them spe
cial men, and I have been tightening
the screws. 1 had presumed that the
Attorney General's views would bo
sustained, or, if not, that the members
of the Court, who I presume are pro
hiUlt|a^lsts fcdrtalnjy flolitioalfy, if
not otherwise?the majority of them??
would help me out In this fight, by
holding the decision even as it was
rendered, until 1 could get the situa
tion somewhat In hand.
"But lo. and behold, they shoot tho
decision back with lightning-like rap
idity and lliey say to the blind tigers,
'on With the dance, hoys the music
will be furnished.'
liOOks for Abuse from flic People.
"Now, it is up to tho people to curse
and abuse mo, for non-cnforcoinonl of
tho law, when everybody knows 1 am
helpless and no power oil earth can
enforce the dispensary law in this
State, and keep down the blind tigers
so long as white men furnish the liq
uor and have free negroes to seil it
for them, and then go around to law
yers' offices and hire lowyors to de
fend these negroes and .it the same
time whisper to the lawyers, 'don't lot
mo be known in connection with the
"I am not criticizing the Court. 1
accept their decision its the law. but
as they have delayed in so many other
matters, 1 wish they had delayed jvist
a litle win; in this.
His Billy Course.
"1 see nothing for me to do now but
to wlthdorw my constabulary from
Charleston and Columbia and -.-ill over
the State. There is no use for people
who pay taj '.'s to pay constables and
detectives under any such conditions
as we are living tinder right now, and
it certainly is dlshcrtonlng to a man
who has done all he could to try to
enforce the law. And. I hope the peo
ple will understand that when the
blind tigers are roaming over their
communities that it is not tho fault of
the Governor of South Carolina, if
1 ?arties will write me I will take the
matter up and do the best I can, and
if they will go to a magistrate ond
make affidavits as to the illicit sale of
liquor 1 will see that the magistrates
do their full duty, but under the law
of personal use I do not see how wo
can siezo any shipments.
You Can Never Tell.
"Now, for instance, I know two men
that drink a quart of liquor a piece
every day. Now, when they get a case
every ten or fifteen days who can say
it is not for personal use? It is for
their personal use. I know other men
who drink a moderate amount of liq
uor, but they have friends to drink
with them, Some do not enjoy drink
ing by themselves; they want some
body to drink with them, and they will
go and call in a friend, and they con
sume a great deal of whiskey and will
say it is for personal use. Now. where
am I or my constables or detectives to
! draw the line when It comes to the
j matter of personal use? Con sequent -
; ly, it forces us down fo the narrow
issue of catching a man selling, witli
the proof beyond a reasonable doubt,
before we can sie/.e it as not being for
personal use. If my men sieze his
stuff, and the Courts say it Is for per
sonal use, then we have a damage suit
on our hands, and. of course, this same
S-hipromo Court has to sustain itself,
and it would sustain a judgment
against the detective for interfering
with tho man's personal use of liquor.
'Hirers Taking the State. .
"As I said just now, it is disheart
ening. Blind tigers are taking the
State now. There Is no use for me to
misstate the facts. I know it and the
people know lt. There are more blind
tigers in the State than there ever
have boon, and this Supreme Court de
cision is going to make more. Ami it
does BOeni to me, when the Court holds
little frivolous decisions for six or
eight months and longer, that in a ease
of this kind, the decision COUld have
been held a little longer, at least, so
that 1 could have been given an op
portunity to take bold of the situation.
It egrets Discharging Men.
"I do not propose to criticise the
Judges, but 1 want to put the people
on notice that I am not the man to be
condemned. I hope the magistrates
and their constables will take the sit
uation in hand and do everything In
their power to enforce the law, and 1
certainly regret that men wlto have
been doing good, true work and faith-1
ful service for me at this season of the
year must lay down tholr Jobs ond
hunt something else to do, but I do not
propose to have them bluffed and ban
tered and kicked around because i
can't get the Supreme Court of the
State to back me up In the onfrooc
ment of the law."
Letter to Constables.
The following letter was sent by the
Governor to Chief Constables B. H,
Stothart, at Charleston, and E. H.
Kiblor ot Columbia:
"1 regret very much to have to in
form you that, as the result, of the de
cision of the Supreme Court in the
case of \V. W. Atkinson vs Southern
Express Company, testing the validity
of the Webb law, as applied to this
State, I have reached the conclusion
that it is absolutely needless for me
to continue to employ the services of
whiskey constables in this State. Un
der this decision, for the reasons
which are more fully stated by me In
an Interview given to the press this
day. and bled in my office. I request
the resignation of yourself and the
men under you, effective June I, 1913.
Without the assistance of the Courts I
feel that it is useless to try to enforce
the dispensary law,"
