The Press and Banner. BY HUGH WILSON. ABBEVILLE, S. C. ^ Published every Wednesday at 82 a year Id advance. Wednesday, Aug. 15,1900. It. K". Scott Dead. We see by the newspapers that R. K. Scott of Napoleon. Ohio, Is dead. He was Governor of South Carolina for two terinB under Kadlcal rule, lie wqs the friend and promoterof Jerry Holllnshead who came from the same town that claimed Scott. For a term, Holllnshead was a member of the State Constabulary. During that time he had a thrilling experience. He had orders to arrest William Tolbert. and it was understood that Mr. Tolbert might give the constables trouble. And so the constables were armed. One night at a party where a wedding and Joy reigned supreme, and when none of those present were thinking of or expecting trouble, Jerry Holllnshead led his constables in the room. As soon as Tolbert's and Hoillnshead'B eyes met, there was no hesitation. Tolbert and Holllnshead drew their pistols, Tolbert having the advantage in time, began snapping bis pistol. Holllnshead, facing bis antogainet's pistol proceeded to get ready to Are while the chances were against him. Before Tolbert could fire, Hollinsbead sent his ' fl rot\ bullet to a vuai pan. iuiucuo p.oix. ? ? when be waB falling, and tbe shot Inflicted a severe wound upon the person of IiIr slayer. Ten or fifteen years later, It. K. Scott, took tbe part ol his son in a personal trouble in Napoleon, and shot his son's adversary to death. Holllnshead was elected to tbo Senate and while there he Influenced Scott to veto an aot which would have transferred the DeLa Howes Estate to Radical politicians. Twenty-five years ago Holllnshead wasted away and died of consumption. He sleeps In Upper Long Cane Cemetery, in tblB County. And now R. K. Scott has taken his place among the dead of Napoleon, Ohio. Hoilinsbead sleeps with bis man In Abbeville County, and Scott's victim rests with blm In Napoleon. Difference of Opinion. Tbe Spartanburg Herald seems to think that Gov. McSweeney is a mere play thing it the hands of Senator TlllmaD. Speaking for this newspaper, we would saj that McSweeney is able to take care of blm nelf. ills speech at tills place last Saturday was regarded as not Inferior to any speecb that was delivered. He certainly made more out of his speech than did any other speaker The presence of the speakers here last Sat turdaj shows beyond the shadow of a doubl the wisdom of the present plan of canvass lng the State. Instead of accepting newspa per estimates of the ability of the different candidates the people had the opportunity o seeing and bearing the speakers. And seeing and hearing the speakers, the people will vot< intelligently and according to their own con victlons, and not by direction of anybody The speeches which were heard last Saturdaj changed the ballots of many voters, and 1: would have been better for some of the can dldates If that meeting had not been held but it is well for the people that It wan held Without that meeting Governor McSweenej would not have been regarded at half hli worth or at half his ability, and his vot< might have been much less in this count} than it will be, since we had the meeting. If be wins in this race It will be because b< baa corrected the previous published state mente as to bis ability. His speech was bet ter than Tillman's, and it took a better hole on the public mind. Tillman hardly sus tallied himself, and bis speech was not on i higher plane than that of the average speake: who has no speech to deliver. McSweenej x greatly raised himself. fe ' JfV ' ' % Should Hold FaHt to Thnt Which In Good. Our own conviction Is, that the friends o pruiiiuiiiuii huouiu hold on to the ad vautngei which we have, and use thotr energies in try lng to have the dispensary opened at si late hour In the morning and cloned earlier in tli afternoon. This would be practicable, and would sure ly result In good. No real friend of prohibition or temperanc Should favor low priced liquor. The higbe the price the more restrictive Is the law Cheap liquor encourages the buying of II quor, even as the low price of other commc t dltles encourages their sale. The "profit feature" need not be an objec Hon to people who are not too pure for tbl earth. We presume that the .State Is not it the business to make money, but to restraii the sales of liquor. The "profit," therefore should be considered more as an embargo 01 liquor-drinking than as a means of maklni money. Col. Hoyt. Among the callers at this office during thi day of campaign speaking was Col. James A Hoyt. This editor regrets his absence at th< time. Col. Hoyt was In every sense of th< word a good soldier In the Lost Cause, and b< bears upon his person evidences that h< Jaoed the enemy In limes of danger. As ? citizen and as a man, be has an honorable record, without blot or blemish. He is in tb< race lor Governor on the prohibition ticket and Is making the canvass in support of th< principles wbich he has upheld during the whole of a long and useful Hie. in the day! of our young manhood a friendship begar which has continued, and we hope that dif ferences of opiDion on the liquor question may not sever the relation. We are botfc striving for the same end, namely: Thf sobriety of the people. Strange Indeed. It Is urged as a reason for defeating Mc Sweeney that the blind timers and their cus tomers in Charleston and Columbia will voU for him. On the other hand, the prohibition ticket cau have no hope of election without the blind tiger vote In the other towns. stated differently, it seems to be a sort o; reflection on McSweeney to get the Ilqaoi vote of two towns, while we presume It Wlli not be denied that the prohibitionists relj largely upon blind tigers and their custorncn lu the other towns for the electiou of thai ticket. From what we hear of the speeches at Ab bevllle last Saturday, the liquor vote wai knocked amid ship. That day's proceeding! at this place, It seems to us, cleared the at rnospbere. Liquor Forever. For eight or ten years the great politlca Issue in this State lias been upon the llquoi traffic. If the expressions which we have re cently heard are indicative of anything, thi people are getting very tired of the matter The dispensary hns been pretty definitely settled by our State Constitution. Everj Legislature for the last eight years has recog sized the dispensary as the solution of th< liquor question. The dispensary gives us absolute problbl Hon from sunset to sunrise every night in tb< year. That of Itself lg a great step towari prohibition. Hut strange to say, there are prohibltlonlstf who would throw away the present restriC' Hons on the sale of liquor, and enter upon ac ideal prohibition, which lias never been real. izoU iu any State. . Democratic Declarations. We republsh tbe speech of Col. W. .J. Bryan. Read it for yourself and conform your political opinions to his utterances. That seems to be about all that Is required oi citizens of the former :slavebolding states. NVe have our opinions furnished to us readymade, so to speak, and it would be treason to do a little thinking for ourselves. At the nominating convention a majority of the Uemocratic voters held views which were not in accord with Mr. Bryan's views. The majority yielded to Mr. Bryan, and Democratic faith in 16-to-l tfas changed to suit tbe man with " steel trap jaws.'' Later Mr. Bryan concludes to furnish a different rule of faith. Dropping 16-to-l, he makes the gage of battle on Imperialism. That is the way the matter stands now. We are a little sorry for the boys who have been holding to 16-to-l, when Imperialism is the true issue. If Mr. Bryan does not change again, we presume it will be imperialism for the remainder of the campaign. In case he changes his mind it may be hoped that he will give his followers ample time to inlorm his loyal subjects. Down South Democrats are bound to believe anything which they are told to accept as good Democratic doctrine. A man who wouldn't believe every utterance that Mr. Bryan makes, deserves the direst consequences, if Mr. Bryan has anything else that we ought to believe we hope that he may notify us in time so that we may be accorded lull credit for haviDg no opinion which did not originate in his own brain. If Mr. Bryan could have abridged his speech somewhat he would have conferred a great favor, and posBlbly would have saved some ol us from error or blunder. A document which is so long may be misunderstood. In Your Xame on a Club Roll ? The primary election takes place next Tues" day week. Only a few days remain in which you can enroll your name.

POLITICAL MEETING. i Tlie Managers unci Actors in the Brest Circus Perform their Parts to the Edification of their HearerN. The State campaigners spoke at Abbeville *?* r?A.nin? trk an a nH icnpfl U7hl/?h ItittL otxtuiuaj UJUIUIU6 kw ?U ? ? was estimated at from three hundred and tifty to seven hundred?tbe smaller figure nearer corresponding to our own estimate. If there were many of our town people pres1 ent tbey were lost In the crowd, and this editor did not see tbem. f Ciulte a delegation of enthusiastic prohibitionists came down from Due West, and our own belief is that some of tbem went away r disgusted and disappointed?disgusted at tbe : dispensary speeches and disappointed in tbe prohibition speech. > Tillman held tbe orowd throughout tbe . length of bis alleged speech, which was less , otlensl ve to tbe preachers and more agreeable to the people of Abbeville tbau we had ext pected. He Baid Abbeville was the only Court House town in which be bad been well treated at all times. This was a chivalrous people who were noted for their good manners and t their courtesy to all. f He made note of tbe honorable exoeption in the case of preachers not going Into an al> llance with tbe liquor men. He believed that } a large majority of the ordained ministers . were all that their parlshlouers could expect of tbem. Tbey preached tbe gospel of our Saviour, and Ignored politics, but there were ' a few who used their pulpits In which to del liver political harangues. In proof of tbls latter assertion be asked the audience to indulge ' nlm while he read a report of tbe political , speech which Rev. W. R. Richardson bad recently delivered In Columbia. Mr. Tillman said our ancestors bad been r fighting for religious freedom lor five hundred s years, and he did not believe In this, tbe one , hundredth and twenty-fifth year of separa tion of church and State, that the people ' would again consent to be dominated In pol imcb oy me cuuicu. In defense of the dispensary he contended that the Bible nowhere condemed the moder? - ate use of liquor, and that there was no war rant in the Bible for prohibitory laws. > In his speech along this line we think Mr. Tillman's utterances were Injurious to the sobriety and good morals of the young. He i never once alluded to the danger to which the liquor drinker Is exposed. He said nothing about the unnecessary waste of our estates by f the whiskey habit, and he had no word of warning, from a health standpoint. No word In behalf of the wife of the man who throws away his substance in idleness and riotous living. Mr. Tillman is a sober man himself, and he could have proven in his person and in his own conduct the advantage of a temperate f and sober life. All the preachers In Abbeville county will hardly be able to counteract the ? pernicious ellect of bis speech. Mr. Tillman, like a majority of Congressmen r who remain long In Washington,.seem to have a well developed case of self-coDcelt, or L* swell head. The air of Washington seems especially adopted for Inflating Senators anil Representatives with immense Ideas ol their importance. The fact Is, that a sojourn In Washington Is as capable of producing the e disease known as "swell head," as a printing office Is in far oil Carolina. Asa rule, a man who edits a newspaper knows It all, until he \ strikes a Congressman, when the CongressI. man can ordinarily make the average editor ashamed of bis slim.allowance of self-conceit. k Throughout Senator Tillman's speech there were iuieir>pcincu ao maujr uig i n no wmiu uc .. found Id any speech of the same length. Among some of bis choice remai ks were one 8 something like this: "f have been accused of i nearly all the Bins, but I have never been j charged with being a fool " Thin, we believe, Is one of his stock expressions, whether It ' suits the occasion or not. And while weagree ] with Mr. Tillman that be Is not a fool, yet we g differ from him In bellevlDg that he does some foolish things. As a whole, Senator Tillman's conduct was scarcely up to what might have been expected ol a United States Senator. There was ho paragraph In the speech that was elevating or Instructive. It was a jumbled mass which 3 had for its central dgure the ever present big The crowd was silently with him, but he dispelled something of the glammour that has so long surrounded his name. He went away not a greater man than be was when he came. Governor McSweeney's epeeoh was a surprise and revelation. He in fact won laurels for himself, and strengthened the cause of the dispensary. Col. Hoyt made a good speech, and presented his excellent temperance principles with force and eloquence, but for all that he spoke, In a large measure, to an unsympathetic ? audience, and ealned little for the cause of > prohibition. Col. Hoyt bad been so mucb i boosted and praised before bis comlrig, tbat the people may have expected too much of blm, and in some Instances they were dlsupi pointed. , Hon. P. B. Gary spoke with good effect and bis speech was regarded by many as a most excellent one. Mr. A. Howard Patterson spoke and was disposed to stir up the animals. Mr. G. Walt. Whitman spoke with his usual vigor. The other speeches we did not hear. There has been so much "know notblug," or lack of expression, as to the probable out' come of this campaign that it may be India> creet If this newspaper venture a prediction, j But there Is a general demand for an opinion, aDd, hit or miss, here we go. 1 The race for Governor seems reduced to a contest between three, namely: MoSweeney, r Gary and Hoyt. To us the Indications are that McSweeuey will head the ticket on the " flr?t ballot. The race for the second place In 1 the first race lies between Gary and Hoyt. r This of course Is merely our own opinion. So far as this county Is concerned, Mci Sweeney gained votes by his speech last Sat' urday, and If he only did hall as well in oth er counties as be did here, he will uetainly be one of tbe leading candidates.
