The test ls to come after January 1st, 1916, when thc state-wide prohibition order be comes effective. The real victory will be the enforcement of the law. Those who hilve won the victory had best gird up Ihelr loins, rather than enter tain thoughts of laying down Hie sword. They ure going to have a Bard light on their hands, but we bo lleve they cnn maintain the victory If they will but keep uwake and stand llrm by their guns. Approximately 6(1,000 votes-less than half of the voting strengh of the state-wer?? enst in the election yes terday. Of this number The Intel ligencer accounts tills morning for G0, 000. The returns nhow that of this number 33.104 were cast for prohibi tion and 14,157 for the retention of .the present local option law. It is to be regretted that there was not a larger vote reglrfored throughout the state, for there will bc those who will argue that yesterday's election waa not a fair expression of tho wishes of the pcoplo or the liquor question, In asmuch aa less than a majority of tho voters In the state went to the polls. But then elections are determined by j tho number who go to the polls and not by the number who ?tay away, ard those who are charged with the enforcement of the law have no r'ght ita ..quire info a matter of tint kind. The only voice they should know ia that which upoaks through the polls, and that voice has said in no unmis takable terms that liquor must be wiped out of this state. Thirteen of tho 15 counties In which there aro dispensaries puked up (pardon the expression^) the miserable Institutions which have served to de - bauch them, and voted for state-wide prohibition. That's one of the best features of the election. Always dis appointing and ever a source of mor tification to the state when a question of -public morality is at issue, old Charl'ston piled up an overwhelming majority for liquor. Two thousand Ave hundred and twenty-nine votes wore cant for tho retention of liquor and.but 277 votes wore registered against its banishment. ?But then tho result ia Charleston is not surpris ing. It was ever thus. It is natural to suppose that Charleston will, as she has done in tho past, proceed to snap hor linger In the face of tho rest of thc state when lt comes to the ob servance of any law to which she Is opposed, regardless of how great the majority of the other counties that voted for Ita passage. This being the case, the fight for strict observance bf the prohibition law ought to cen ter in Charleston. That ought to be headquarters, the seat of operations, for the prohibition armies. The overwhoiming majority by which Aiken county voted to spew up the dispensary Is another interesting feature of, the election returns, 'the vote In this instance being over three to-one. And Aiken county, you know, ls bankrupt-'bankrupt in spite ot the fact that she has this Q. M. I, to add to her revenues. We predict that now that Aiken has shown her desire to climb out of tho bog, her elttz?nry will soon become more prosperous and in a reasonable length of time her finances will be in splendid shape. Who would not be proud today to claim Marlboro their borne county. The returns tabulated up to last night showed that this county gave the big gest majority for prohibition of any county tn the state. But 19 votea for Uquor had been recorded, while the vote against the stuff was 658. ACTION, NOT ARGUMENT. Tho vital expulsion of Ambar?ador Dumba for hts improper meddtng with our domestic affairs ls regarded as (he beginning of a new era In Wash ington diplomacy. For a year the administration bas labored to uphold American rights and, la so far aa lt had opportunity, the rlgha of human ity In general, by means of whose pacific.natura there could be no ques tion. Oar European controversies growing out of the war have been constructed of logic and law. We have ! tuet aggressions with friendly pro-! tenta constructed of logic and law. We have assumed that Germany. Aus- J trfa and England were our friends and wanted lo treat UH JiiHtly. Hut the words, though admirable, have had little effect. The hopeu aroused recently by German promises have proved false. Perhaps because the offending powers concluded thut we would remain content with words, they have steadily trifled with us and refused or neglected to change their conduct. Now HM- presiden t's prompt hand ling of the Dumba case may shock the offenders into a sense of decency. It should be promptly followed up. If the proof ls au strong as it appears to be, thai Captain von Papen, the Cer n?an military attache, has been asso ciated with Dr. Dumba In trying to disorganize American Industries by bribery and thc: assertion of foreign sovereignty on American soil, he snould be sent about his busln'.ss just as promptly. And the president's ac tion should not stop there. No for eign representative, even If lt be tho German ambassador himself, sl??uld be tolerated in the United States one hour after lt becomes clearly evident that he has abused his trust and our hospitality hy plotting against the na tion. If foreign diplomats and con sular agents will not behave with propriety and decency, let them bc packed off to Europe without cere-, ninny to practise their tricks In a congenial atmosphere. It Is time for a new American de claration of independence. And that declaration can now be written best not in words, but in deeds. Wo do not want war'with any na tion. Wo do not need to have war. But still less do wo need lo have any thing to do officially with any foreign nation that will not respect our in dependence, our neutrality, our honor, our laws mid tho lives of our citizens. HEAL KN KAI IFS. "If men must fight," Bays a New York pastor, "let them fight the com mon enemies of mankind-dlsea8e, pov erty, human ignorance, human in justice and prejudice, child labor,! slavery and the lynch law, and the thousand ills of body, mind and soul." 4They are doing it even now, more than most of ua think. The horror of war obBcureB the wholesome, gen erous, constructive movementa that are going on simultaneously with it, and oven mixed up with lt. It isn't ail hato and cruelty and bitterness f and falsehood. Noble emt Ions arc found side by Bide with deadly passions. In the very worst aspects of war will be found traces of pure and unselfish purpose. Many of the belligerent nations and individ?ala are wrong-possibly they are all wrong. Dut to the credit of human natures lt must be admitted that nearly all of them think Uley are right, and aro willingly making heroic sacrifices for what they conceive to be their duty to the community, the nation, the race. j War ls the greatest of all evils, and also the greatest Inspirer of self-abne gation.- Many of men today are glv-| tng their lives without a murmur, and with absolutely no thought of pcr-? ronni advantage. They are fighting and, dying-or think they are-to mako lifo nobler or more tolerable for their children and their country men. If men could only be persuaded to fight like that against "tho common enemies of mankind" mentioned by the pastor! Perhaps they will, some day. They go wrong now chiefly be cause their heads are wrong. When the world is properly educated, the nations will know better what their i real foes are. Mr. W. M. Strickland of the Hol lands store section was in the city yesterday and he was enthused over the cotton crops in his section and ?with the present price cf the staple. Mr. Strickland stated that he had tried to look on the bright side of the 'situation ever since the war ste rt ed and that he had been getting along all right. Mr. Strickland. In other words, ls an omtomlst. There are several dif ferent definitions of an optomlst but about the nest is as follows: The man who falls from a 30 story build ing and exclaims after falling half way that he has passed 15 stories all right ls an optomlst. ? o ? ??? Mr. P. E. Cllnkscales ot the Bank of Anderson stated yesterday that air ready th? effects of tea osat ?oUo? could be felt. He ututtd tbat all of the farmers were very much pleased and already a number bad called lu the bank to lind out when tbelr notes esme du?- In order that they might pay them. -o The Intelligencer ha? ad<b-d two L. C. iSmith & Bros. typewriters in the office and perhaps the news can be better written. These machines were bought through Mr. C. C. Dargin, agent of this city, and are giving sat isfaction. Kater Mr. Dargan will pub lish as an advertisement in tills paper all the tlrms or business men in the city using the L. C. Smith typewriters. -o The change of the Piedmont & Northern passenger station was made yesterday and lt ls now locate?! direct ly across tito street from the ?>ld ptand In Crayton's Drug Store.

O "Tiie new schedule for tho rural mail carriers goes In io effect on Thursday instead of Wednesday as previously announced." stated Post master Laughlin yesterday. Tho new schedulo ls the one followed during th? fall and winter and thc carriers nre due to leave the postofJlcc at 8 o'clock at a. m. -o Mr. Charlee. E. Daniel leaves today for the Citadel to resume his studies, Dr. Daniel stated that a number ol the Anderson boya had already gone to Charleston although they were not re quired to bo procent until Monda; morning. The reason many of then went ahead of time was because tliej wanted to take part tn the rifle shoo! which is being bold on the range ai Sullivan's Island. The Citadel wil send representatives to the Southon college shoot which ls to be h?>ld ii Jacksonville, Fla., and if good scorei are made then they will send repre sentatives to the National shoot. As stated yesterday Miss Walli! will sing at the Anderson theatre thii afternoon and night. This afternooi she will sing at 4:30 and tonight a 8:30. Miss Wallin has a very swee voice and the people of this city hav a rare treat in store for them. -o Manager Trowbridge stated yester day that the attendance, at the Ander son yesterday ai' ernoon and nigh was unusually large. Last night th house was crowded and Charlie Chai Un kept them laughing, o Mr. Bud Wilson of CraytonvUlo wa a business visitor In the city yestet clay and stated that ho had just sol 25 halos of cotton at 10 cents a pouni "I had that cotton last fall," state Mr. Smith, "and said then that would soil lt as soon as the mark? reached 10 cents. The past two daj has been tho first time since then tin I could get that price for it and I Ii 'er slide." Mr. W. E. Rasor stated yeaterda to a reporter for The Intelligence that in addition to the experience practical hair dresser that he wi have in the ladles beauty parlor d portment of his business, he had a ranged to have his wife stay in the; also, and be in absolute charge of at all tim.-? This department wi not be complete and open for buslne ur.?.il the latter part of this, or tl beginning of next week. .

I refer par ticularly to West Market, McDufTle and Calhoun streets. 1 do not mean to say that in cities where there ls street paving to do the commission selects always lor improvement thone streets along which there happen to be car lines, for it very often is the case that th? streets on which there are ear lines are thc most important streets in the town, and, necessarily, have to be paved. But there seems to be a disposition on the part of your authorities here to pave tho streets regardless of whether car lines hap pen tc be on them, and this is a most splendid spirit." Mr. Carraway was astonished at the great improvements that have been made in Hotel Cbiuuo la, declaring thc new lobby one of the prettiest to be found In any hotel in this section of the country. He stated that this improvement alone hus done wonders Tor Anderson al ready by way of giving the town a better name through Its leading hotel. Mr. Carraway, as editor of the .South ern Public Utilities company maga zine, is doing a splendid work for tho employes of this big concern and in cidentally for the section of country in which this big company's interests are located. o Tho annual meeting of the directors of ?he Piedmont & Northern Lines will be held this evening at Chick Springs Hootel, and will be attended by J.

In this week's is&ue of the Manufac turers Record Nikola Tesla,. review ing the progress of electricity and forecasting its future, indicates some ?amazing m;-v issues to which electri city is to be put. Tesla briefly sketches the history of electricity from its discovery by the anciens down to Ute wireless achievements of the present day. Moses, so Telaa de clares, was undoubtedly a practical and skilled electrician, and he thinks it may be plausibly assumed that the Vestal fireB of the Romans were elec trical, and yet there wrs.no progress made in tao practical uses of electri city from early tunes until 'recent years. The telegraph, telephone, phono graph and incandescent lamp, indura tion motor, oscillatory transformer. Roentgen ray, radium, wireless an numerous other revolutionary advanc es which have been made within th? last century may suggest the though that nothing Ia left to be done in elec tricity. Telsa says all .this is as nothing as compared with what the>| future has in store, and which, in brief, may be outlined from his fore cast, aa follows: Hundreds of mil-, lions of dollar? may be saved an nually by a comprehensive electrical plan for the mining, handling, trans portation, storage and use of coal, and this applies,also to natural gas and mineral oil. Passing by the possibilities of elec trical Improvements in tho processes' of manufacturing steel, lt lt pointed .out that not less than 4,000,000 horse power could be developed annnually in electrical generators, with new, efficient, extremely cheap and simple thermo-dynamlc transformers, by utilising the heat of the gases evolv ed 1 nthe manufacture of coke' tor blrst furnaces, ' which gases sro. now wasted or only in part and inef ficiently employed. Electrical ener^ gy could be advantageously used in the fixation of atmosphere nitrogen and production of fertilisers, for which there ls an unlimited demand. Tho harnessing of waterfalls ls - the most economical method known for developing power. So far, about 7, 000.000 horsepower have been de veloped ta this country. This is equal to the mechanic.-i performance ot 450,000,000 men. Although there ar? llmbltations to water-power de velopment at present,. tho time * ls very near when the precipitation of the moisture of the atmosphere will be under control, and then lt will be possible to draw unlimited Quantities of water from tho oceans, develop any desired amount of energy, and completely transform the globe by ir rigation ?ad intensity farming .? The Wireless transmission of power ia now an accomplished fact. In the departments of electric light and power an electrical ice. machine, economical and efficient, to provide ro frigeratlon for every'h?useliold, is an important new appliance, ready to bo introduced. A vast and absolutely mutt. ;hed field is the use of electricity for the propulsion of ships. Au electrical company lias just cuni,-ped a largo vessel with highspeed' turbines and electric motors, and bas achieve^ a signal success. There will be electrtrml instruments for preventing collisions, and fogs will be dispersed by electric force and powerful and penetrativo rays. With in the next fow years wireless plants Will probably be installed for the pur pose of illuminating the oceans. Thc beneficial effects .of elcctricity of high tension have boen unmistak ably established and a revolution will be brought about through the exten sive adoption of agricultural electrical apparatus. The safeguarding of for ests against fires, tho" destruction Of microbes, insects and rodents will, In due course, be accomplished ' by elec trical means. By the development of electrical In struments lt will be possible to flash any image formed in though on a screen and render it visible at any place desired. In telegraphy and telephony new In ventions will dispense with expensive constructions, and will also enor mously extend the wireless transmis sion of intelligence in all Its depart ments. A number of improvements of much promise ?lave been made in the art of telegraphing or telephon ing pictures, and lt la experted that complete success will soouT?e achiev ed, r. Another valuable novelty will be a typewriter electrically operated by the human voice, thus doing away T with the operator ' and saving much time and labor In offices. Many municipal Improvements ban ed on the use of electricity are about to be Introduced. We ave to have everywhere smoke annihilators, "dust absorbers, ozonlzers, sterilizers of wa ter, air, food and clothing, and acci dent preventers oh streets, elevated roads and In subways. It will be come next to Impossible to contract disease germs or get hurt in the city, and country folk will go to town to rest and get well. I In the way of devices and imple menta of warfare, a new electric gun will soon be brought out. Dlri planes will be equipped with small electric generators of high tension, from which the deadly, currents will be conveyed through tin wires to the. ground. Battleships and submarines will be provided, with electric and magnetic feelers so delicate that the approach of any' body under water or In darkness will re detected. Torpe does and floating mines are almost in sight which wilt direct themselves automatically and wMhout foll get in fata! contact with the object to be de stroyed. Th? art bf telanlom alica, or wireless : control ot automatic ma- ' chines at a distance, will play a very important part in future wars, and. possibly, In the next phases of tbe present one.' Such contrivances may take the shape of seroplanes, bal loons, automobiles, sr.rface or under water boats, and will be of greater range and destructiveness than the Implements now employed i "I hal? leve that th? . telautomatic aerial tor pedo will make the large si?ge'gun on which BO much dependtsuse is plac ed at present, obsolete," Tesla de clares.' -, . - !tn discussing the power of the fu ture, tides, waves and winds are dla? missed as uncertain and Inefficient; fuel Vs now used ls branded aa a bar barous and wantonly-wasteful method ' and the utilisation of the son's heat beyond tbe pale of the practical. The inevitable conclusion, therefore, -1'Is that water-power ls by far our most valuable resource. On thia humanity roust biulld Its hopes for the future. With Dis full development and a per fect system ot wireless transmission of the .energy to any^dielruice, man wi.ll be able to solve all the prrSlems of material existence. I)Utance, which ls ithe chief impediment to hu man pro. rross, will be completely''an nihilated , In thought, word and. ac tion. - H-mtanlty will be un ii ed, wars 'will be made lmpossib's and peace ! WiH reign supreme.
