The Advertiser wishies all of its
correspondents, readers and friends
a Happy Christmas.
DOWN THi. NUISANCli!
The Advertiser would be n1o far
seeing ulroiiet were it to predict that
the alleged slayers of IHosea Martin,
city polillceian, will seek to evade re
sponsibility for his death. We are not
sitting on their case here, but, regard
less of what may be their plea, the
facts remain that the dead officer cane
to his death in an attepllit to enforce
the law and, further, had public sup
lort in Clinton 'been given to Rural
Policeman Abrais, conditiols ill that
town would' not have mnade it neces
sary for the I, Laurens polic Jorce to
have been on the highway far from
home inl search of liiuor ruinni ers. The
Advertiser -;peaks measu redly rhen it
says that exponents of laV and order
in our si;tcr city need to be on the
alert and, by thi r rigIi t'ous w rath,
delliand and sentie an abatement of
the liquor nuisance i that town. We
all know that the lir jit. nuisance is
