The Prosperity Stock Company hav
received another carload of line mule!
and brood mares. Messrs. Kobn and
Birge have just about closed out theii
carload of mules which they receivec
only a week ago. It is all stuff to cr3
"bard times and no money." To set
three carloads of mules in as many
weeks, don't look like hard times and
no money to this pilgrim. Businest
seems to be improving in town. Con
fidence in monetary circles is being
restored and the outlook seems brighter
Our people are all in good circum
stances, and no body is going to suffet
on these coasts.
Last week some black knight of
darkness, entered the Post Office by
means of a false key, and relieved the
cash drawer of its little change, amount
ing to about five or six dollars, and
then went his way rejoicing. No clue
to this knight of the night.
As yet, we have no Dispensary estab
lished along our coasts, but we have nc
guarantee that things will remain so,
Our town was "dry" by Statute and
by charter, but by the last "June bug'
Legislature, at the instance of a mat
of "tuperior judgment," the "dry
Statute and charter was perfectly an
nibilated, and the way made broad and
easy to establish a State liquor saloon
in our midst. Now what are the people
of Prosperity and township number
nine going to do about it. Are we going
to stultify ourselves by voting for a
State liquor saloon now, when in the
last election a majority of us voted for
prohibition? We cannot say. Othet
towns and places have established pre
cedents. Newberry might have been,
under the first State liquor saloon bill,
a dry town had not some of her best
church members, and church ofiicers,
and prohibitionists recommended cer
tain good men for State barroom
keepers, just like it was any more
honorable, or decent or pious or less
sinful for the State, the great State of
Soutt Carolina, to sell liquor than Dan
Ward, and Jim Dunbar or any body
else. The inevitable results are the
same, it makes no difference under
what conditions whiskey is sold. I only
mention Newberry as an illustration,
beca use there are many other places itn
the State in the same condition. Good
men, church men, prohibitionists, and
even some ministers of the gospel sanc
ti('u these State liquor saloons-they
are nothinig else. Now it is a lament
able fact that the endorsement by such
men as above menti-ned, gives tone
and character to liquor selling by the
State and many young men who would
have blushed with shame to have
entered an old time barroom, do not
now hesitate to enter a State saloon,
because of the lone and character given
it under thbe sanction of a law endorsed
by the best men ini the church and in
the prohibition party. Now, our people
ere are no better than tile citizens of
Newberry or any other place where
whiskey is sold, and we may have a
real live State barroom in Prosperity.
I don't know. WVe dry town people,
a nd w hiskey people, and ch urch people,
and prohibition people are getting
badly mixed and tangled.
Our condition reminds me of a cer
tain little boy in our town, who, on a
certain occasion, had the misfortune to
get one of his trouser legs reversed.
When he tried to put his pants on
again he easily got one leg in the prop
er place, hut the other leg could not
gain an entrance. The little fellow
tried and cried, and tried and cried,
when, finally, he spied Cap:. B. com
ing down street; he picked up himself
and his pants and came running out
on the street with his cheeks streaming
with tears, and said, in a crying voice,
"Cap-n, ca ca-can y-you t ell a-a-a fel
ler h-h-how to un-unwantangle his
brich-briches?" Tbe Captain kindly
"untangled" the little fellow's "brich
es" and he went on his way happy and
serene. Now it seems to me that we
have got our prohibition-whiskey
curch "briches" badly tangled, try
ing to get a prohibition leg and a
church leg in to reversed whiskey legs,
and the three won't work. WVe need a
good Samaritan to come along and
"untangle" our "briches."

titter Denuneation of the Congresswan
Accusing Him of Deviating from the
Paths of Truth and Itighteousness.
W mixro. 1). '., January.19.
To the E'lii: i-f l'iie Ureenville News:
I f,-l called utOw', in view of all that
is twriug said agair,st my friend, who ih
Sloy:l and true to the people at homE
and in Washington, to have a fewc
words to say myself.
I am a member of the State execu.
tive committee, nd represented th
county of Abbeville as Tillman's cam
pai:"n organizer in 1S92. I feel as deef
an interest in the welfare and success
of the movement of 18)0 as any mar
in South Carolina, and while my fiiend
is being traduced and imposed upot:
by the Register, the Reform organ, ]
feel it my duty to let the people of the
State know how some other folks ar
acting wnen they are away from home
It has been an opea secret, ever sinci
I came to Washington, that Captair
ShElI was acting in concert with out
political enemies here. There is not s
true Reformer in Congress, or in Wash
ington, who has not seen it and wh<
does not realize and recognize it. Hf
has played Congressman Latimer anc
un ielf false in a matter that shows hi
i duplicity and want of that trait thal
is necessary to make an honorable anc
reliable man. He promised my friendi
in the spring of last year to endorsE
me for the office of statistician of South
Carolina, with the furtber declaration
to them that Mr. Morton, Secretary of
Agriculture, had given him the re
fusal of this place. I went to work
and got up a petition, which was
signed by all the Democatic Congress
men who had a chance to sign it.
While I was expecting the appoint
ment, I saw, through the columns of
the papers, the appointment of Col. J.
\Wash. Watts, *im inveterate and im
placable enemy of the movement, wb
bad denounced us as a vile horde, and
who had refused in 1894) to sign a testi
monial of character for Mr. .Shell.
This Congressman Latimer did not
understand, and, when Congressman
Latimer approached Shell he denied
having endorsed Watts and afterwardt
when he was knocked down byastreet
car and taken to the Metropolitan Ho
tel he called Mr. Latimer to his bed
side and made a dying confession. As
to whetber he believed he was going
to die, some people have their doubts.
In said "dying confession" he told Mr.
Latimer that be had never endorsed
Colonel Watts for this position. After
wards, in order to verify this state
mtnt, which was generally doubted,
Mr. Latimer and I went to the agri
cultural depsrtmueut and found a letter
from Captain Shell endorsing Colonel
Watts for this place and saying, among
ot1wr things in the letter, that be would
be ondorsed by General Hampton and
otber prominent Conservative citizens
of South Carolina.
Now, i1r. Editor, if this is the kind
of a man that is to be selected by Mr.
Bowden to lead the Reform forces in
South Carolina, may God save the
movement. I have never been prom
ineut other than in the manner stated
above, but I wish it distinctly under
stood by all parties that this kind of a
man cannot lead me. .1 want to be led
by men who have never faltered and
can be relied upon in daylight or dark.
I suggest humbly that the leading
true Reformers of each county be
calmed together and inaugurate the
campaign, in order that justice may be
done to all parties. If that is not done
trouble is bound to conme, and the
abuse and destruction of our leading
nien by the Register will not tend to
save this movement. I say give us an
open and fair field, and, if Bowden 's
and Sbell's se a can contral this con
yention, then the movement is too
weak to have stood anyhow; but I do
not believe that the Reform Democrats
of this State are ready for any sc.

Those Laurens Resolutions.
Editor Register: The Laurens Conn
ty Alliance resolutions whbich I offered
have produced such a seethiing political
cauldron that I wish to say a few words
in reference to them.
All Reformers are agreed as to the
necessity of having a convention. The
resolutions stated the reasons why we
preferred July, to wit: giving all can
didates an opportunity of putting their
claims before the people. 'Then when
the township conventions are held the
vote?rs will be able to act intelligently
in selecting their delegates to the con
ventions. For these reasons we prefer
a rather late convention.
The rea'on we want Tillman to call
the convention is because the Farmers
Association is in a dormant condition.
There has been no reorganization for
ive years. The March convention in
1890 did not, if I recollect right, do any
t bing but make nominations. We know
that Captain Shell was the last State
nresident, but with this exception we
don't believe there is one man in five
hundred who knows the other State,
county and township officers. It is ne
cessary to have proper rules for hold
ing the convention. Tillman being the
father of the Reform movement, wie
believe he is the proper one to call the
We see it stated by some of the anti
papers that some of the Reform leaders
have decided that Tillman must take a
back seat. We don't t>elieve it and
they are counting without their host,
for'the rank and file, the privates, do
not intend that he shall occupy any
suchm position. Tillmran is the u-ame we
conjure wi thyet.
We hope this article will not give the
ant: press the jin-jams for the ghost of
Irb.; is nowhere hidden in it. In con
clusion: we will say let the convention
be held when it will, the Reformers of
L: urens County will put their shoulders
to the wher.l and help roll it to success.
