With righteousness in their hearts

of iSouth Carolina have struck the

lint, as Governor Manning said last
night lu a statement issued after the
returns bud been received, the vote
yesterday ousting liquor from the
state ls but the winning of the first
round Of the fight. 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.

"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

* ELECTRICITY'S AMAZING ?
* POSSIBILITIES *
* ?
Baltimore, September 7.
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
