A MORAL QUESTION.
For the Good or the Young and of
the Weak and Helpless (Mass Vote
to Prohibit Whiskey.
By an Act of the legislature the
people of the wet counties in this
State will have an opportunity on the
17th day of August, to say whether
the sale of whiskey shall continue or
not. (Two weeks of prohibition be?
fore the election as a kind of experi?
ence in State-wide prohibition.) Ever
since the State has been organized,
whiskey has been sold under some
form of law, and in this long time of
about a hundred and thirty years,
ample experlnce has been handed
down from generation to generation
to know its good or evil effects. Of
late years we had the State dispen?
sary, better than bar-rooms, but. It
soon got corrupt and died of its own
weight of corruption. This system
was succeeded by county dispen?
saries. A number of dispensaries were
voted out under the Bvice law before
the system was changed until now
about one half of the State sells as
much or more whiskey, than the
State dispensary did in all the coun?
ties of the State before the Brice law
went into effect. County dispensaries
are no better than the State dispen?
sary In principle. The only difference
is to open larger opportunities for
graft. Marlboro County has always
been dry and if the good people of it
can be believed, it is one of the most
peacable and prosperous counties in
the State. More money on deposit
and in circulation than any whiskey
county of its size in the State. The
sale of whiskey is a moral one affect?
ing the welfare and morality of the
people, and the State has the same
right over whiskey that It has to re?
pel an armed foe, suppress riots, blot
out epidemic, stop traveling through
It, or anything that would be for the
injury of the people. This is simply
the exercise of its police power, and
the exercise of it does not infringe
upon the liberty of any one for in
organized society there must be law
for the protection of the people. We
are aware that a number of our bett
citizens use whiskey to some extent
but they know hov/ to control It in
proper limits, while others of our best
and most patriotic men have suc?
cumbed to it and found in early
grave to the sorrow of all who knew
them. It is from this helpless class and
the lower elements of the people, and
the young boys and men that prohi?
bitionists want to remove this terrible
evil and temptation as much as pos?
sible. History is full of the blight?
ing influences of whiskey upon the
brightest minds of our country and
of their ultimate destruction by it. We
know the sorrow It has brought to
many firesides, the expense to the
courts and trouble in the land. Does
the grin from its sole pay for all
this? For many years a large num?
ber of the best people of the United
States have seen its .evil influences
and are trying to curtail its use or
blot it out of the land. In the great
States of Ohio. Indiana, Iowa and
Kentucky the sale of whiskey is al?
most prohibited. Tennessee is dry,
but so fierce was the fight to make it
so that E. W. Carmack, that able and
brilliant man, lost his life to the
cause of prohibition. In several of
the Southern States there are prohi?
bition lavs in both county and State.
The argument that prohibition won't
prohibit is the reason than many
won't vote for it is no argument at
all. We have laws against murder,
stealing, and all crimes against so?
ciety, and yet these things go on.
Shall we abolish these laws and let
people have full swing to exercise
their passions and personal liberty in
whatever they want to do? I think
not. In the approaching election
each voter should ask himself, is the
sale of whiskey an evil in the land?
if so he should vote to abolish it. A
man's vote should ever be cast for
the good of the people and not for his
personal preferment, if against the
good of the State. * * *

TIIUUH SEEKING EVIDENCE?
QUEER STORY CIRCULATED AS
TO SENATOR'S WESTERN TRI I*.
Washington Herald Printe an Arti?
cle, Stating That Tillman is Visiting
The Cities Where He Used to Buy
Liquor for the Dispensary, With
The Purpose of Making a Clear
Case for Himself and Associates in
The Dispensary Investigation.
Columbia, August 4.?It is not be?
lieved here that there is anything in
the report which has been circulated
through some of the Northern papers
and copied ? extensively through the
South, that Senator B. R. Tillman, of
South Carodna, is gathering "the evi?
dence necessary to make a clean case
for himsell! and, if possible, for his
associates" in his trip out West.
Those in a position to know have
stated that the report is a wild flight
of the imagination, and that most
probably the senator has not the dis?
pensary investigation at this time "in
the back part of his head." It is a
coincidence, though, that Cincinnati,
of all cities, has been hit upon as the
one where the senator is said to be
gathering the information. For, as
it is well known, much of the dispen?
sary data has been gathered In that
burg, and a well known detectives'
agency could made readers in thin
State sit up and take notice if this
information were given out.
The story as published in the Wash?
ington Herald about Tillman's trip
is picturesque and makes interesting
reading. It follows:
"A sensational story came out of
South Carolina a day or two ago that
Senator Tillman was dangerously ill
at his home and that, in view of gen?
erally failing strength for some time
past, he might resign from the senate.
Investigation developed that Senator
Tillman was not at his home, but was
in Cincinnati on business. It was de?
nied that there had been any especial
change in his health, which, however,
has been far from good for more
than a year.
"But incident to this story, another
las developed which has a decided
nterest for the admirers of the vig?
orous Carolina statesman. It appears
that the Tillman political regime is n
a bad way n South Carolna, and that
a general Investigation by decidedly
unfriendly people is being made into
the conduct of the famous liquor dis?
pensary system which Tillman estab?
lished. This investigation is giving
real worry to the senator and his sup?
"Tillman was a farmer until In
1890 he was elected governor on a
platform demanding better educa?
tional facilities for the State. He be?
came at once famous more for his
bitter antagonism to the negro than
for anything else; but he carried out
his educational programme, and in
addition forced through the legisla?
ture his dispensary law, under which
the State entered the liquor business,
bought and sold all the liquors for his
State, deciding where and when dis?
pensaries should be operated. It was
one of the biggest experiments ever
made in such an enterprise and peo?
ple from all over the world studied
it witn the greatest attention and in?
"It is commonly said nowadays
that Senator Tillman has never been
accused even by his worst enemy of^
dishonesty. South Carolina people,
remembering the bitterness that be?
fogged the dispensary experiment,
smile at that suggestion. In fact, Till?
man was under the most direct and
hostile criticism, reaching to his per?
sonal and official integrity, from the
day the dispensary was established. It
was easier to assail him because he
took profound personal interest in the
scheme and personally administered
It. He bought the liquors, hired the
help and permitted no detail to es?
cape his attention.
"In such a vast complexity of bus?
iness his enemies found plenty of op?
portunity to make attacks on him
and they overlooked none. But Till?
man was triumphantly reelected and
then he swept the State for the sen?
ate, and has been three times elected.
"Meantime, however, the dispen?
sary system has collapsed, the State
has fallen into the control of Us op?
ponents, and the opposition has been
determinedly trying to stir up the a
Cieitt accusations against Tillman and
his lieutenants, in connection with its
administration. Half a dozen of the
men who were close to Governor Till?
man have been made the objects of
direct charges, and are to be tried the
coming autumn <?r winter. Tillman
ha been greatly concerned about the
developments in the I ght. His old
political organization lias. In large
measure, crumbled a\\ ty, and his en?
ema i are determined t?> make the
most of the opportunity to do him as
much damage as possible.
?Tillman is a fighter always, and he
is getting ready t<? make tilings Inter?
esting for his enemies. He lias re?
cently! it is stated, visited cities in
which In- used t?? buy large quanti?
ties (d* liquor for the state dispen?
sary In the effort to gather up, it is
supposed, the evidence necessary to
j make a clear case for himself and, if
possible, for his associates.
"The evidence, after a number of
years, is- naturally hard for either side
to get at. The coming contest over
the efforts to convict some of the offi?
cials of the dispensary system will be
watched with keenest interest over
the South, and it may have a most
important effect on the political future
of South Carolina. Those closest to
Tillman and most familiar with the
details of his career have no doubt
that for himself he will secure the
most complete vindication of any
charges. They are mainly concerned
about the possibilities that there may
be developments to the discredit of
his administration. Charges of re?
bates and private profits to public ser?
vants have especially entered into the
As far as is known in Columbia, the
dispensary commission has never at?
tempted to bring Senator Tillman in?
to the investigation, which is pending.
But the investigating committee,
which was appointed by the legisla?
ture, did have the senator before it.
The examination was very brief. Till?
man stated in answer to questions
that he knew nothing concerning re?
bates, etc., and had no information
which would be of benefit to the com?
mittee :n its work. All these matters
are well known to the people of this
State, having been published at the
time. The tilt between Senator Till?
man and the present attorney general
about the investigation are all "back
historj" of this work. But the com?
mission has been working along the
lines wished for by Attorney General
Lyon and counsel for the State. The
civil side of the winding up of the dis?
pensary has been in the hands of the
commission, but it is well known that
there has teen other work going on,
and this is the part of the affair that
there has been other work going on,
and this is the part of the affair that
has had mcst people guessing.
Of course, it is possible that South
Carolina's Senator is gathering data,
but this is not thought to be the case
here. It is not felt, in the first place,
that Tillman would bother at.out the
situation, which apparently, does not
affect him in any way just now. The
State dispensary is past history ,and
it is removed from the political situa?
tion in this State in every respect. The
present investigation and winding up
of the affairs of the old State dispen?
sary has not to the people of the
State and political significance. Why
then should Tillman worry himself
about the institution which has long
since been buried? Even If a few
years ago It might have hurt to see
the dispensary crumble, now that it is
gone the work of winding up its af?
fairs can have hardly any political
significance. There is another side
to the matter which would seem to
preclude any idea of the senator's
taking a hand. The work of the inves?
tigation hcs been confined to the last
board in office, and those who were
connected with it. In the list of those
charged there are none who had any?
thing to do with the dispensary in
the days when the purchasing board
was composed of the Governor, the
Secretary of the State et al, or later,
when the power was vested in a State
board?save for those in the last board
of directors. The belief is that Senator
Tillman has taken as much interest
in the State dispensary as he will
ever again actively take, and that he
has no occasion to be hunting data,
as is stated.
In the meantime the arfairs of the
defunct State dispensary remain in
about the same shape as they were a
few months ago. The commission is
now reading over the testimony and
getting in line for a final determina?
tion of the various claims. The S600,
000 fund is in the banks of the State,
and the amounts will be paid out in
accordance with the findings in the
respective concerns' cases. This is
the work of the dispensary winding
up commission until after the Sep?
tember term of court. The final re?
sult of the whole business is eagerly
awaited by the people of the State
and the world looks on.
