Wednesday, Sept. 19, 1906.
School has opened. Was your
boy there on the opening day?
If not, why not?
If Tillman can get comfort out
fo the results of the primaries in
South Carolina, the getting o f
blood out of a turnip ought to be
an easy task.
Ansel and Lyon were the win
ners last Tuesday and there is
rejoicing from the mountains to
the seaboard for this manifesta
tion against the further dominion
of the G. M. I.
Greenwood, too, goes against
the bucket shops. Let other
towns follow suit and it will not
be long till these gambling in
stitutions will be legislated out
of South Carolina, as has been
done in North Carolina a n d
Fairfield Cotton Mills, 60 for
Ansel and 22 for Manning. And
thi- despite the 11th hour move
to catch the mill vote and the un
tiring work of some local poli
ticians, who have been flattering
themselves with carrying certain
votes in their pockets.
May be now that the prirharies
are over and the dispensary
question is settled so satisfacto
rily to both sides, there may be
an opportunity for South Uaro
lina legilators to give a little tirae
to the consideration of measures
that will make for the education
al betterment of the masses.
Of course the governor and the
attorney general do not make the
laws, and the election of Ansel
and Lyon does not of necessity
mean the doom of the dispensary.
But then from the way the dis
pensary papers are worrying
over the situation they must see
the handwriting on the wall.
Be it known and read of all
men that the Fairfield delegation
in the general assembly is heart
and soul and body for the state
dispensary and that they a r e
glorying in their shame. Any
attempt to place any one or all
of them in the anti-dispensary
column is nothing less t h a n
The papers are having some
very kind things to say of the
manly character of J. Fraser Lyon,
recently nominated attorney gen
eral. There are none to whom
his strength of character is better
known than to his old college
mates. With one accord they
have testified to this throughout
the campaign without regard to
their convictions on the dividing

concerted movement on the part
of the representatives of various

lessening the work of this great
pest that plays such hovic with
an industry of unlimited possi
Sbilities in this section. It re
mains to be seen whether the
SSouth Carolina legislators will
take action against the tick or
will ~give it the same favorable
consideration as has always been
?shown the yaller dog.
