THlE DISPENSARY ARRAIGNED
1 A Statement Issued in Anderson a
to the Law Governing the Situation
The central prohibition com
mittee of Anderson has issue(
the following address:
To the Voters of Anderson Coun
You are to have a chance to ex
press yourself for or against the
South Carolina liquor dispen.
sary. There is to be no excite
ment, no beating of drums, and
blowing of trumpets, but there is
a qiet, steady determination up.
on the part of our citizens tc
bring this institution to the bai
of public opinion.
It was promised that the dis
pensary was to be a "great moral
institution." Has it met that ex
It was promised that it would
greatly reduce the sale of liquor,
and many of us believed it, and
determined to give it a fair trial.
We are not pleased with results.
We are not pleased that the
consumption of legalized poison
should. have increased every year
until it last Tear reached the enor
mous total~ of $3,500,000, and
that dispensary officials have
reached the point, as the daily
papers recently reported, where
7y pw refuse to give out infor
1mation aa o how Mph pf the
stutd they do sell.
It was promised that the rever
nue accuing from the dispensary
would greatly reduce taxes. It
has not done so. The tax rate
in this county has almost doubled
since the dispensary has been in
0vogue, notwithstanding the fact
1 that the assessment has been
raised from $6,000.000 to $11,000,
09 dyiring the same period.
The assessmnent throyhgo4t the
State has been increased propor,
tionately, yet the rate for State
purposes is higher in this year of
grace 1905 than it has been for
15 years, while the deficit in the
State treasury is greater than it
liar eep or ay:T years.* It is
Ievident, then, ?bt as @pp
sary as a means of revenue 'hag
been a stupendous failure.
We are not pleased that beer
shops or additional salesrooms
havp ee; grafted on to the sys
tem-_i n vio1jztigr of lpW, s nany
think-i4 oy~eT phap typ peceigpt?

We are not ph6 ased that tha
liquor dispensers, officers of this
State, solemnly sworn to observe
and uphold the law, should open
ly and flagrantly violate the law,
reqjiirr from purechasers "writ
ten requ6stSeGr li goTg fo fear
that the sale of liq or's 'migh't go
reduced, as the law intended that
it should be.
We are not pleased that the
osegr wgog wg have put in
charge or the dispajy ja gg
that the law is enforced, shoolaI
think that we put them there to
-va~ commercial venture-to
:o dollars for a proud State at
en~ ~ se of citizenship-to
'push he630o pions
liquors among her youngi men ang
an1 among. the helpless victims
of fatal habit, and to fatten the
Stats's treasury at the cost of
those whom the State should be
S"os solicitous to protect.
SWe' e g4 eleas ed that men

And we regard it as most sig
nificant that those wvho were
friendliest, those who hoped most
from the dispensary as a regula
''irn masure, cannot longer avoid
p)uere and are beig Dge goa
mit that the institution reeks
with corrupt'ion and lawlessness
and that the experiment has fail
'Lrg.e, y'e & t a li:tle income

We out i tens pi th4opsajgs
to drQogthlmdreds; we havye
expenses and heavier taxes every
year; we give our young men, at
great econoalic loss, to the de
mon of drink; and, worst of all,
we make our mother State the
e;t t fy.rish to thgmn the
uJieans of debaulchfng their ,hr
aters and dest'roying their souls.
Some say that Anderson coun
tv "will not enforce" a prohibl
tion law. They enforce it in
Marlboro; can we not do as well
I a Marlboro? The Charlotte
News, a week ago, showed how
well they are enforcing it there;
is public sentiment in Anderscn
county 2ot as enlightened as it
is in Mecklenburg? Our neigh
bors tell us that itis well enforced
in many counties in Georgia, and
we do not believe that the moral
atmosphere and the standard of
citizenship in this county is in
ferior to that of any counties in
our sister State.
In Marlboro county the first
convicted "blind tiger" keeper
was promptly fined $400. He
moved to another town and
opened up again. He was prompt
ly convicted again and fined
$500, when he quit the business
in disgust. Anderson county
will profit by her example.
Let us all, at the very begin
ning of this movement, pledge
ourselves, as this committee does,"
to do our full duty in enforcing
the law when we get it.
Certain citizens fear that to
disturb the existing conditionsl
is to take a step towards "high
license" and open barrooms.
They need never fear that a
South Carolina legislature will
disregard the expressed wish of
the voters in any county; and
public sentiment, in this county,
has advanced too far for open
barrooms to ever again be a real
menace here. Furthermore, the
advoc4tes of "high lipensp" in the
legislature will find themselves 1
solidly opposed, not only by the
present advocates of prohibition,
but also by the upholders of the t
dispensary system; and they
would be doomed in advance to a
worse defeat than that which now
awaits the dispensary. And,
finally, under the present eon- 1
stitutional provisions, the muni
cipal authorities cannot license,
ad t p legis~lat re pannot
authorize them to license, the
sale of liquor-and it takes a
two-thirds vote of the legislature
to su'mit a proposed amendment
of the constitution to the people
and a majority vote of people
and legislature to pass it.
we qpepl, tLhergfoye, to the
men and women of Anderson

Not to The Swift.
Not to the swift, the race;
Not to the strong, the fight;
Not to the righteous, perfect grace
Not to the wise, the light.
But often faltering feet
Come surest to the goal;
And they who walk in darkness
The sunrise of the soul.
A thousand times by night
The Syrian hosts have died;
A thousand times the vanquished
Hath risen glorified.
The truth the wise men sought
Was spoken by a child,
The labaster box was brought
In trembling hands defiled.
Not from my torch, the gleam,
But from the stars above;
.ot from my heart life's crystal
But from the depths of love.
