. f. AULL, ErTom.
The manipulators of the new Iohi
bition movement in this county are
using the columns of The Herald and
News, which acknowledges its preetr
once for high license under dispensary
rostrictions, to advocate their cause.
Inasmuch as it is pretty generally un
derstood that this new prohibition
movement with the office-seeking at
tachment will be used by the high li
cense element toaccomplish their ends,
this coming tog' her of elements usual
ly at, variance with each other is in ac
cord with the pretont unfitness of con
ditions brought about by the would-be
leaders of prohibitionists of South Car
olina.-Voice of the People.
The Voice seems to overlook the fact
or ignores it, intentionally that at the
same time we offered tho column to the
pr9hibitionists we also offered the
same privilege to the advocates of the
dispensary, stating distinctly that If
we saw any chance for high license
that we would look after that end of
the row. We are sorry our friend is
so suspicious and can see "boogara"
where there are none. There is no
coming together of any "elements" "at
variance" heretofore. The Herald
and News has distinctly and on various
occasions stated its opposition to the
dispensary and also Its opposition to
prohibition, and because the prohi
bitionists were given a column in our
paper is no reason for arguing a con
Ing together of high license and prohi
bition any more than to say there is a
coning together of high license, dis
pesary and prohibition, because we
offered the dispensary people the same
thing and the offer is still open. We
want the people to have all the light
on the subject possible, and being op
posed to the dispensary and prohibi
tign we offered the advocates of these
two systems of dealing with the liquor
question our columns.
How any man who is a prohibitionist
from principle can support and advo
cate the dispensary is something we
have never been able to see or under
stand. If it is wrong in principle to
sell whiskey, and a man is opposed I.o
it on the high ground that it ik morally
wrong to sell it, as all prohibitionists
claim, it is inexplicable to us how it, be
comes morally right and the prillciple
changes when the stulf is sold by the
StqMe instead of the individual. lossi
bly the editor of the Voice, who is, we
bulieve, a prohibitiorist in principle
and practice, can explain a moral dif
,feyence---how in one case it is wrong
and in the other it is right.
We did not intenl to take up this
disussiou, but since we are in it we
would like for the Voice to tell us why
a dispensary is not a good thing for
Prosperity, if it is much a blessing and
so much better than prohibition. Why
did you so bitterly oppose a dispentsary
in the town In which you live and make
such a fight to maintain prohibition if
the dispensary is so much better?
Why, If the dispensary is a good thing
for Newberry and other places, is it
not a good thing for your own town?
These quest,ions are asked in all earn
estness and seriousness, because an an
swer to them will p)ossibly throw light
on the question. We write from mem
ory, but we believe we are correct
when we st.ate that you oppossed the
opening of a dispensary in Prosperity.
And, again, we would like to know
by what process of transformation, if
thbe selling of whiskey is morally wrong,
it becomes morally right when the
business is monopolized by the State
-end the profit from it, blood money as
the prohibitionists argue, goes into the
coffers of the State.
Now we are opposed to both the dis
pensary and p)rohlibition, because wve
think it is wrong and an outrage for
the State to be in the whiskey business,
and we-are opposed to prohibition for
many reasons. It will not p)rohibit,
and then we do not believ%e you can
legislato temperance into p)eople any
more than you can religion. M%an is a
free moral agent and has to answer for
his own sins.
Still we have felt and have so stated
on more than one occasion, that in this
year of grace we believed the dispensa
ry would remain with us. But since
the Voice is so alarmed and devotes s'
much space to State Chaieman Jones
we are beginning to believe that the
dispensary must be in danger, or the
editor is trying to ease his conscience
by much writing and much argument
on the subject.
The Voice should tote fair in its anx
lety and love totr the sale of whiskey by
Trhe war with Spain is mnaliing pro

We find tho fpllo*ing in the oolumns
of The Voioo of the People:
The candidate who n'oglects to put,

necessary to secure its insertion, but.
he stands a mighty good chance of los
ing thoe oflice he Is after and the salary
attachod thereto. A word to the wise
It is none of our business, of egurse,
where a vandidate places his card and
ther, is no party law that we know of
to require a candidate to announce his
name in the papers at all, but. inasmuch
as some candidates might see proper to
put their names in The Herald ,and
News and not in the Voice we must
protest against any such threats as very
unfair to the candidates and unjust to
the voters, for it assumes to say that a
majority of the white voters of Newber
ry county would be influenced in casting
their votes by the paper in which the
candidate makes his announcement.
We think if the Voice wil',3xamine its
files of two years ago that it will find
the names of some candidates who an
nounced in no other paper and yet
when the votes were counted you scarce
ly knew they were in the race at all.
It .jay be that the Voice has gotten a
cinch on the voters since then and for
that reason makes this announcement
with authority, but '.o scarce think to
'Ihe Herald and News will be glad to
have all the candidates announce in its
columns, but we have no threats to
hurl against those who do not. An
nouncing in one or all the papers can
not fit, a man for oflice nor make the
people vote for him.
By the way, does the Voice guaran
tee the election of those who announce
in its columns? The rule should work

The following circular has just been
issued by the well known firm of La

Their estimates are generally based on
reliable information, and we have no
doubt this is a very correct estimate:
New York, June 2, 1898.
With the view of obtaining thu most
rli,6ble information possiole concern
ing the cotton acreage of the United
States for 1898, we addressed, as usual,

ers, emlbieaing every cotton growing
county in .he South, asking areage es
Up to this date wo have received 2,
188 replies, of average date, May 2th,

The total estimated decrease In cot
ton acreage in the United States for
1898 is 5I pr cent, or 1,335,000 acre
less than last year, and the aver'age
planting of tihe crop) is about the same
as last year, when planting was late.
Our corresp)onden ts repor't that the
reduction in acreage has been brought
about by the low prices of cotton, re
luctance of commitssion merchant' to
make as liberal advances to the plant
ers as last year, in the face of war. and
the increase in acreage in tobacco,
wheat and corn, on account of the high
pr'ices of these conmmodities.
While in some sections much re
p)lantlng has been necessary, on ac
count of cold weather, overilow in Ar
kansas and White Rivers and poor
stands; as a wvholc, the crop can be said
to be in a fair average condition ais
comnared with other seasons at the
same date. Yours truly,
LATsiiAM, AJJ1XANDE~R & CO.
It would seem from this that the agi
tation and discussion have had a good
effect. Tihe acreage has been reduced
andt wilie the per cent, is much less
than was advocated, yet in the aggre
gate is considerable,
There has been a considerable in
crease in the grain crops, and in this
p)articular section there ih much more
wheat and oats than usual, and the
crops of both' are very good, ant they
have been harvested ini good condition.
In fact,, wo have not had in years as
much wheat, planted, nor haie we had
as fine crop as the one this year.

we were told of a gentleman in the Po

thrashed eight, quite a difference.
