THE PROHIBITION CONVENTION.
The Prohibitionists held their con
vention in Columbia last week, adopted
a plrtform, passed some resolutions and
adjourned. That was about all they
could do, we presume. There was a
strong sentiment in the convention for
the nomination of a State ticket, but it
- was evident that some of the Prohibi
tionists were unwilling to do anything
or take any steps that would come in
3 conflict with or hurt or injure their
political faction. Their action does
3 not amount to much, -bu then possibly
I it did no harm. There was a large per
cent. of one time prohibitionists in the
r convention who are now advocates of
the dispensary system. The Prohibi
a tionists would have had a very small
t following even if they had put up a
State ticket unless their strength had
come from those who have heretofore
- opposed prohibition.
The whiskey question in this State
a presents at this time a rather anoma
lous condition. A large majority of
i those who have heretofore claimed to

E have all along claimed that the sale of
E whiskey was an unmitigated evil, and
that statutory prohibition of the sale
s wa the remedy, have all at once awoke
to the conclusion that practical pro
1 hibition was impossible and that the
solution of the wholematter was in the
- dispensary system, and that so long as
the State sold whiskey, whether for
a medicinal purposes or as a beverage, it
D was all right and the proper thing to
I do. While on the other hand, those
- who have.opposed prohibition are.now
- ready to votea prohibition ticket, -and
I would prefer statutory prohibition to

t Though the dispensary law has been
e declared unconstitutional, there seems
to be a feeling that the dispensary in
e some way will be onened again soon.

a know that it exists. We publish else

The Excellent Equipment and Work of
South Carolina College.
Mr. Editor. It was my good fortune to visit
last week the South Carolina College and to have
the opportunity to inform myself by personal in
spection of its most excellent equipment, and of
the great advantages it offers to young men and
women desiring an education. I had thought
that the institution had the appliances and appa
ratus necessary for thorough work, but my ex
pectations were more than realized. In all the
class rooms are found maps, charts, and such
other appliances as are needful and helpful in
illustrating and impressing a lesson.
Physical training goes hand in hand with men
tal and moral training. and to attain this end
there is a completely equipped gymnasium in
charge of a thoroughly competent instructor. We
witnessed the performance of the class in physical
culture and were much pleased with the evidences
of thorough training.
The chemical department is thoroughly organ
ized under a most efficient head, and is said by
those competent tojudge to be equal to Heidelberg
or any European university. From the making
of the simplest experiment to the assaying of ores
and soils, everything is at hand.
In the department of physics everything neces
sary to illustrate natural phenomena is at hand.
In the class room of Prof. Davis we saw some
thing which especially pleased us, and which set
us to thinking. It is a home-made stereopticon.
By means of a mirror, two lenses and a slide prop
erly arranged. Be is able to project a picture upon
a sheet some forty feet distant, and in this way
most beautifully and impressively illustrate his
torical events; bringing, as it were, the historic
personages and places immediately before the
eyes ofthe pupils. Cannot such an apparatus be in
every common school house in the country? It is
cheap and most efficient. I hope every teacher
from Newberry County who attends the summer
school at the South Carolina College, and I hope
all will attend after attending their own institute,
will request Prof. Davis to exhibit this apparatus.
The department of tmineralogy, geology and
biology is fully equipped with all that is needful
for thorough training along this line.
We had been under the impression that the
South Carolina College is- an expensive instith
tion. Such is not the case. Good board can be
obtained at the Steward's Hall for $8 per month.
All necessdry expenses need not exceed $i io per
The water, obtained from a well far removed
from contaminating sources, is clear, cold and
pure. This is an important matter, and the excel
lent health enjoyed by the students is in a great
measure due to it.
The faculty is composed of gentlemen who are
at the top in their respective branches. They are

With all of these advantages of personnel,
equipment, location and cheapness, why is it that
our'youths do not go to the South Carolina Col
lege? Simply because they are ignorant of the ex
oellent opportunities within their reach.
This grand old institution is historic and de
serves patronage. The proud rank which South
Carolina has taken among her sister States was
made possible by the South Carolina College and
has been achieved by her alumni. She has a proud
record. It is said that out of the college bred men
of the United States who have attained to positions
of honor, trust and eminence, twenty per cent.
has been furnished by the South Carolina College.
Let not this proud xecord be lowered. Let not
this historic instizution die for lack of material
upon which to exercise its beneficent influence.

The Solution of the Liquor Question.
As the whole country appears to be at sea
in regard to the liquor traffc, and so much is
being said about jicense, dispensaries, pro
hibition and free liquor, I beg to submit a
plan by which, I think, will satisfy a very
large rsjority. of the people. allowing ail
who wish to drink to do s, and those who
do not need not be taxed to purchase whis
key to supply the dispensary, doing away
with the saloons, dispensaries, and the ac
cursed system of esp-oUage on persons and
private homes. If this can be done, which I
am satisfied it will under my blan, all would
be satisfied and happy, and consequently a
blessina bestowed upon mankind.
Let a license tax of one two or five dollars
be placed upon all who wish. to drink, for the
privilege of drinking daring the year, the
amount so realized to go to the supplement
of the school fund. The government could
furnish cheap badges to be worn upon the
lapel of the coat, or vest, and let a heavy
penalty be put upon every one who drinks.
or offers drinks to others without a display
of the regulation badge.
At the annual assessment of property let
the question be asked, "Do you drink?" be
answered "Yes" or "No," as the case may be,
and the Auditor, if the answer is "Yes." pro
ceed to hang on the badge. It could be got
ten up in artistic style, such as the "palmetto
tree" with the 'chemically pure" Inscription
upon it, and this would look "nobby" upon
the coats and vests of the young swells, and
even the older men. Then look at the reve
nue and the inexpensive system of Its collec
tIon. A member of the recent temperance
mass meeting made the assertion that there
were no more than two hundred whIte pro
hibitionists in the county, and probably an
equal number, or less, of blacks, and, say
there are about four thousand or more of
voters and drinkers in the county, see what
an Income this would ensure to the sehool
fund or tax lists. Then, as there would be no
expense attached to the sale of liquors, it
would be cheap, drinks at five cents or one
dollar per gallon. all olasses, the - poorest as
well as the richer, could afford to drink.
Only a few days' drinking, or perhaps one
good drink alone would py for the Ileense
in the saving In price. Ten, as all would be
allowed to sell, merchants could keep the
article as a kind of "side line" for their cus
tomers, and te enticing paraphernalia of the
saloons would be dote sway with. Then the
fun the prohlbitionista cQuld have In watch
int those without a badge, and as It would,
by law, be made a felony or assault te ask a
man to drink without his regalia in sight, it
would act as an Incentive to all who enjoy
the exhilirating influence of a drink and an
other p aying for it to have his badge displayed
In bold relief. Tue field would be smaller,
and consequently the evaders of the law
cou:d be more easily detected, and as every
taxpayer would be interested In seeing his
neighbor aying his proportionate share of
taxes, all he honest drinkers would become
detectives and Informers.
Then again, the mDost of men would be
ashamed to not own' a badge for fear he
would.be accused of pernuriousness or tax

This is only an after part of the first drink

so much intel-eat in the well-being of his

dram drinking when want and destItution
are staring the poor and helpless in the face,
and where words ofecheer anda helpingband
could do so much. good to alleviate their
wants. And in must cases these enthusiastic
prohibitionists are men who never did drink,

and place all the Ill" that flesh is heir to: at'

other sins equally as ruinous and destructive,
among the few I might mention: laziness,
want of thrift, hypocrisy In church matters,

hear but little from the.prohbitionists. If
they would conce-ntrate their energies, time

connection wtth their temperance crusade,
would not their acts look lees seliseh? What

the doctors have given them a frIght and
forced them to leave off However, a great
many are truly temperance advocates from
pure love of their fellow man. But why give
all their energies to suppress this vice in ex
cosion to all others ?

Later on Mr. Tindal published a lei

NO STATE BANK TAX REPEAL
a Defeat of the Measure in the House
Democrats Not on the Party Platform.
WASHINGTON, June 6-Byavoteof
e 172 to 102 the House of Rerpresenta
tives to-day voted not to repeal the
law imposing a tax of 3t per cent.
r upon the issues of State banks and
t other associations. Then it decided,
e without the formality of a vote or even
a division, to kill the Brawley bill, to
a which the other proposition was an
ameedment. This bill proposed to
suspend the operations of the law as to
s the certificates and other evidences of
money issued by Clearing Houses and
other associatious during the currency
panic of 1893. Th is latter action was
d somewhat unexpected, because in the
cause of the ten day's debate just closed
th-re bad been no objection expressed
to that proposition. The vote on the
7 repeal of the 10 'per cent. tax law, it is
said, did not represent the full extent
3 of the opposition to that measure.
All of the voters in favor of the Cox
amendment to repeal the 10 per cent.
tax outright were cast by 102 Demo
Of the nay voters 78 were cast by
a Republican-, 8 by Populists, and 75 by

"I can cordially indorse Ayer's Hair
Vigor, ;as one of the best preparations 0
t for the hair. When I began using Ayer's
e Hair Vigor, all the front part of my head a
-about half of it-was bald. The use 0
of only two bottles restored a natural
growili, which still continues as in my 0
youth. I tried several other dressings, 0
but they all failed. Ayer's Hair Vigor
is the best."--Mrs. J. C. PEEUssE, a
