In Colum bia we note that the county

town clerk's books were used as the
official list of freehold voters.
The one is adopted which best suits
the purposes for which it is wanted.
The whole thing is a farce any way.
Why not go ahead and put up liquor
shops in every town. The prohibi
tionists favor it and there is no need to
consult those opposed to prohibition.
The people voted for prohibition and
in its place the State has gone into the
liquor business and wants to sell all it
can. If the majority is satisfied, the
minority has no right to even protest.
That has been the order of the day in
It Governor Tillman and the reform
legislature, who enacted the dispen
sary measure, really intended the thing
to be a "step in the direction of prohi
bition," why do they now desire to
change the act so as to place dispen
saries in the reach of towns that can
not get them under the act as it
stands at present ?-Johnston Mon
Their object seems to be revenues.
They will no doubt be delighted to
have the consumption of whiskey in

more the sales and the greater the rev

reform and we have no protest to enter.

The Herald and News joes not un

way. The administration seems to be
determined to establish despensaries1
any way and we see no use of going
through the farce of having applicants
secure lists or signers.
The administration surely is not hard
up for money. But it does look like
the moral question has been thrown to
the winds and that the motto now is,
"It is money we want."
How is this at this season of the
year? No doubt most of our country
friends at least think just about this
time of the year that there are but few

not forgotten how sweet its sound used

DISTRICT ATTORNEY MURPHY.
a Significant Appointment for South Caro
laa-Senator Irby's Evil Prognosti
cations Do Not "Specify."
[Special to The State.]
WASHINGTON, June 19.-Irby's pro
test on Friday did the work. William
Perry Murphy was to-day appointed
District Attorney for South Carolina,
is it was predicted he would be in The
State nearly almonth ago.
Senator Butler and representative
Brawley both recommended him.
Ben Perry will come with the next
turn of the cards, despite Senator
[rby's evil prognostication. When
iere last Friday the junior Senator was
old about the appointments of Darby
'or Walhalla, and A. McN. Turner for
Sinety-Six, "They have not been made
ret?" he asked. "No, but they are
promised, and will be to-morrow, was
iaid by the State's correspondent.
"They'll not come," said Irby. "De
3end on that. I have queered them."
But they come, nevertheless, and ac
ording to schedule.
It is thought Irby hastened the ap
pointment of Murphy by coming on
md talking for Earle.
The State correspondent named the
Ive important appointments a month
tgo. Two of them, Harris and Mur
'hy, have come. The others may be
ooked for at any time.
BRAWLEY SCORES AGAIN.
Representative Brawley is putting in
ome good licks. To-day he called on

Some days ago W. J. Shelton, of the
egister, as an outcome of a newspaper
:ontroversy, published a qard in which
ie charged I. H. Hunt, of the Journal,
with telling a "falsehood" and a "con
,octed lie." Shelton also stated that
ie was in Columbia on Sundays.
Mr. Hunt, who was in Newberry on
unday, came down to Columbia to
iave satisfaction. Mr. Shelton did not

helton came to the city snd registered

helton till late in the afternoon, when

Shelton said he was willing to do all

WHO'LL HAVE DISPENSARIEST
The Countle* Oficlly Regarded as Cer
taln-The FIrst Order Received from
[The State, 19th.1
Saturday week the dispensary law is
scheduled to go into effect. There are
but eleven days more for the liquor
men, if Judge Bond does not intervene
to save them with that injunction.
Everybody is getting ready for the
grand finale, except the liquor men
themselves, and they are taking things
very quietly indeed.
The law becomes operative on a
Saturday, the hardest day in the week
to cut off the habitual drinker from his
liquor. It will hit the country drinker
hard. Then again the glorious Fourth
comes along three days later, to be
celebrated, and theaverage South Caro
lina countrym&n and laborer thinks
whiskey is absolutely necessary to the
proper celebration of the day.
THE DISPENSARIES ON THE "GO."
Most of the county boards meet to
appoint the dispensers this week and
up to date but few bonds of dispensers
have been filed with the State board.
The board however expects them all to
come in during the ensuing ten days.
The State authorities give the following
list of the dispensaries they expect to
have in full operation on the day the
law goes into effect: Orangeburg (2),
Barnwell (4), Edgefield, -Newberry,
Sumter, Darlington, Lexington, Lan
caster, Berkeley, Aiken, Abbeville,
Greenville, Florence, Georgetown,
Kershaw, Columbia, (probably 3.)
They also expect one in Fairfield.
They say Winnsboro having decided
not to have it, Ridgeway is fighting for
It, and Winnsboro will do a great deal
before she will let the rival town have
It. One of the leading members of the
board says he expects to see at least one
dispensary in Charleston before four
weeks pass by,

such goods if there is shown to be a

THEI STATE CONSTABLES.
Governor Tillman when asked about
the appointment of the force of con
stables, said that no one would ever
know anything about that. He says
they will be appointed in due time, but
over half of them will never be known
to any but the StateCommissioner and
himself. They will be engaged in all
sorts of occupations, and will not be
required to make airests or raise a row
that would give theqi away. They will
simply be required to nose around and

THE DISPENSARY'S SIGN.
Although it has been up for several
days, the sign of the State dispensary
was not noticed till yesterday. it is put
up on the front wall between the win
dows of the Railroad Commissioner's
office. It is only about three feet square.
The ground is white and the lettering
black, It is a very lonesome looking
sign. The revenue collector, under the
United States laws, required it put out
there before a drop of liquor could be
bottled. It looks like this:
Rectifier and.Wholesale Liquor.
* CAN'T SELL THEIR STOCKS.
The liquor dealers who have stocks
on hand are in rather a bad fix, unless
they sell it before the law becomes ope

a revenue license to sell whiskey in his
possession it will be taken as prima
faie evidence of the violation of tlie dis

have this license the United States

upon him for violation of the United

the revenue licenses now held by the
liquor dealers are issued for the year

Go to the Eight.
Mr. Ediwor: I see that Greenville has
a town law requiring all persons when
they meet to go to the right.
Now why can't Newberry follow
suit? I am sure it is a good idea. We
all know what a great trouble we have
in passing each other. We see every
day from this trouble, thinga that make
our blood boil. I am sure if the coun
cil will pass an ordinance to this afr'ect
every one will be pleased. What say
you gentlemen, let's try it? I know
the ladies of this town will bless you.
Then, again, gentlemen, if a case of
this ever comes before you, you will
have no trouble In getting at the truth,
because we all know which is right and
which is left.
We would like to see this law go into
effect and that pretty soon. It may
save me, and others, of a great deal ofj

"Needle" vs. The Herald and News.
MR. EDITOR: It SeeMS from the cross
examination that "I put my foot in it."
Poor Needle innocently thought a reader
had the right to express his opinions on
important questions discussed by editors.
He is now "a sadder but wiser man," and
realizes that "fools rush in where angels
fear to tread."
As you have laid the serious charge of
misrepresentation at my door, a reply is,
of course, consequently forced upon me.
This must be understood. To read your
caustic editorial before seeing the cause
of it, one would naturally suppose that
you had been outrageously abused. You
were not charged with dishonesty, or po
litical rascality. Your vigorous denun
ciation only proves the weakness of your
position, and that there were good
grounds for my criticism. It is strange
that editors-the moulders of publi
opinion and leaders of thought and
action-cannot argue without descending
to personalities. So long as an humble
layman in the great church politic site
quietly in his pew and agrees with the
editorial priest, he is very clever; but let
him dare rise up and have the audacity
to oppose, to contradict, to criticise, then
woe unto him, the scribe and Pharisee.
The countenance of the priest undergoes
a change: a sarcastic curl of the lip takes
the place of the patronizing smile. The
once quiet listener is 1.o longer the clever
fellow. When his argument cannot be
successfully met, he is dismissed with a
contemptuous "shrug" of the pen, which
is supposed to be very withering in its
force; or, instead of that soft answer
which "turneth away wrath" and bring
eth peace, or the "word fitly spoken," his
contribution, if it be so fortunate (or un
fortunate?) as to see the light, is held
aloft and shot at, irrthe attempt to riddle
it so that the people can't understand it.
Very often his questions are uncivilly
answered-if answered at all-as though
he had not the liberty of asking them.
Ridicule assumes the role of logic, and
satire usurps the throne of reason, and
the editor dishes up a multiplicity of
rounded sentences that don't stick to the
text. Is it done to keep down criticism?
If a correspondent's remarks are not
true, a discriminating public can easily
detect their falsity. Why should one be
afraid of a little criticism? If his posi
tion be right, all the criticism to the con
trary cannot make it wrong. It is a
favorite dodge with an editor tc charac
terize an opposing article as "nothing,"
and before his readers see the said article
they have read his labored editorial try
ing to show the length and breadth and
depth and height of this "nothing"-with
something in it after all-and are prej-'
diced in advance against it; that is, those
easily influenced imitators are who have
not the capacity to think for themselves
or the courage to acknowledge a wrong.
Let all editors tote fair and accord jus
dce "though the heavens fall," and then
peace may spread her white wings o er
a happy land. The Herald and News is
too sensitive by far for a newspaper in.
these times. When .an editor is criti
cised on special political lines it is un
derstood that much of the criticism is
oftentimes directed to his faction through
him as a leader or spokesman.
If I erred, it was at least honest, per
haps "ignorant, error." Preliminary
skirmishes to a great political battle are
now going on. I have the right to take
part, and to put my own construction on
certain connecting incidents. If that
onstruction be wrong, set it right. This
is the boasted land of liberty. Must a
nan refuse to speak out because of obli
gations of friendship, or of trade or ac
ommodation? He sells his labor, but
in his principle he is as free as the air he
You misunderstaind my position. I at
tempted to -show you how pacde could
alone be restored. You desire peace. A
commendable attitude, and I distinctly
said that it was a sentiment to which
very honest man would subscribe.
Mark that. Here we have the spectacle
of a man who, while proposing a scheme
for peace, whips out his tomahawk of
war and whoops like a wild Comanche.
Peace with war! All the fle dust you
raise in your war-dance cannot obscure
the point. You were doing the talking
and proposing-the fighting for peace
but you tell in the first battle, and now
cry aloud that "Needle prevents peace."
That is ridiculous. Why should I not
desire peace? Why should you, and not
[, want harmony? have nowhere said
you did not wish for unity. But whether
you thought .I was for peace or war
should not have swersed you from the
path of duty. A man seeking, peace,
pursues the way of peace. No, sir; you
were put to the test-when you retreat
ad. ou could not stand the pressure.
Don't get mad. It does no good. "He
that controleth'his own spirit is greater
than he that taketh a city."
After saying that the way peace was to
be restored was to relegate the extreme
men on both sides, it was your duty to
:ome out boldly as the next step in. this
worthy proposition and repudiate the
political utterances of Mr. Gonzales;
aspecially when reminded that such step
was necessary, not only to test your smn
erity, but to~secure harmony. I did not
nd do not call upon you to abuse Mr.
Bonzales. But I repeat, that, before
peace can ever be restored to South Car
alina, N. G. Gonzales has to be repu
iated by your faction; and if you do not
isundrstand me, you misrepresent me.
[ admit my prejudice-and the sane
sian who says he is entirely free of preju
ice utters a falsehood-but prejudice
against Mr. Gonzales arises from the
tact that it is he who prevents peace and
stirs up strife. He is the most venom
>usly hating man of the combined forces.
There was nothing in my article to
:all forth that tirade from The Herald
ad News. Your reply-which is no
mswer-only shows that you, the man
who has been criticising, week by week,
verything the Alliance and the Demo
crat have done, cannot stand criticism.
The truth is that it is the truth that
aurts. One becomes angry when the
truth is rubbed in unpleasantly. Be
auseltry toshow you the only way to
accomplish what you say you are sincere
in desiring, you forthwith lose your head
ad-I am "off my base.'' Of course
you will allow me to prove that I am on
ny base. For one who "does not care
such about these things" you do have

I did not abuse Haskellism or defend
Thirdpartyism, buAt simply meant that
you could never have peace as long as
you excused the one and condemned the

the sentiments of Mr. Gonzales. Rich
Land Haskellism and Oconee Thirdparty
ism were only mentioned as being the
wo opposing extremes.
Reason about the matter-let us come
to an understanding-we want peace
you make the proposition-"mutual con
essions"-"get rid of extremists." No
oane has made the proposition except the
editor of The Herald and News. Re
member that. Now if 31r. Gonzales is
not the extremest of all extreme men,
then you are right, Mr. Editor, I am "off
base" and badly off. Why did you make
the proposition if you could not stand
op to it? You know, "or ought to know,"
the present cause of the prevention of
peace. You were simply asked if, in
your sincerity for peace,youl were willing
to repudiate-not abuse-your most ex
treme leader, the dangerous agitator and
defender of Independentism. Oh, no;
you "are not singhing out leaders." How
are you to get rid of them then? Will
you get them out of the way three at a
time, or by twos? Can you put them to
the rear witnout naming them? Please
tell exactly how you propose doing. But
who are your extreme leaders anyway?
You have made the start, now go ahead;
blaze out the path--it leads to glory.
'Blessed are the peacemakers."
But, again: You "are not taking sides
in a personal matter between the editors
of The Register and The State." A good
way to try to get out of it, but of all lame
excuses the lamest ever given by an in
telligent man. If The State and The
Begister were engaged in a religions con
troversy, or an agricultural discussion, or
on any other matter than politics, and
you had honest and conscientious opin
ions on the subject, and were called upon
for a decision or an expression of your
views, particularly when you had pre
viously made a suggestion in regard
thereto, would you refa or back down,
because of the personal enmity between
Mr. Gonzales and Mr. Calvo? You were
called upon to decide an important mat
ter of your own proposing. The enmity
between the two gentlemen named has
nothing to do with your position. The
question also of Mr. Gonzales' integrity
has not been raised, and you dodge the
issue when you hide behind that subter

this day received a cash settlement on J j
my twenty-payment, twenty-year ton- -
tine policy, No. 83,001 ($5000), which I
took out when I was 32 years of age.
A hasty glance into the past twenty
years shows that Ihave paid The Equit

and have now received from them
$4500 in cash. [A return of the pre
miums paid with interest on the same

I wish also to add that besides the U 1I
proft I have received from the invest

of misfortune, would have been avail
