Edgefield is adding to her fame
as a cotton market. There are six
local buyers who are eager for
cotton and pay the highest pos

bidding and .the uniform high
prices paid, account for the haul

great distances. The writer calls
to mind a number of farmers who
used to haul thur 'cottoD to Au

now, being entirely satisfied with
the prices they receive here.

"Whare Prohibition Does Prohib
In an editorial entitled "Where
Prohibition Does Prohibit," the
News and Courier, whioh estima
ble journal is noted for its con
servatism and fairness, makes the
following statement in reply to
an . adverse criticism of tbs pro
hibition situation in South Caro
lina by the New York Times:
"So far as the 'dry' counties in
South Carolina are considered the
plain and incontrovertible fact is
that prohibition does prohibit.
Perhaps by all the rules of rea
soning formulated on the experi
ence of Maine and Kansas, this
should nol be the caee, bot it is,
neverthelastf. In such South-Caro
lina counties as Spartanburg, Sa
luda and Anderson the sale and
consumption of alcoholic liquors
have been reduced to a minimum.
The circuit judges who hold court
in all the counties in rotation say
eo, and everybody else says so who
puts himself to the trouble to ob
serve and inquire.
"While we do not pretend to say
that a drink of whiskey cannot be
procured for love or money in the
city of Spartanburg with its popu
lation of 20,000, we do affirm that
one's thirst must be very sharp if
the necessary exertions to ferret
out a drink in that community are
to bd repaid. The same thing is
to be said of th? other seventeen
prohibition counties, though, of
course, in some of them the law
may be enforced with slightly less
rigor. Occasionally a demijohn of
whiskey may be smuggled to a
gathering of negroes and retailed ;
but one such incident occurs now
as against 50 three years ago,
when the negroes of a neighbor
hood were in the habit of chipping
in and sending to the county dis
pensary for a supply. Indeed, we
think it would be safe to assert
that the trade in 'blind tiger,' or
whiskey illicitly sold, is as large
to-day in the dispensary counties
as in those from which the traffic
bas been outlawed. True, well-to
do gentlemen fond of their tipple
are still able to import it from
other States for personal con
sumption, and most of the whis
key drunk in prohibition counties
is in the homes of that class,
where it does not lead to murder
and riot; but the negroes have not
formed, the habit of purchasing
whiskey by express, nor do poorer
white people avail themselves of
lhe Inter-State commerce law. In
the 'dry? counties all importations
are carefully watched, and the
blind tiger is very likely to come
"These are the conditions in
the prohibition torritory of South
Carolina, and we have no doubt
that they prevail in the same de
gree in the 'dry.' districts of other
Southern States. How long pro
hibition will prove effective in
these localities remains to be
seen, but, however hard it is for
the Times to comprehend it, it is
the truth that prohibition is ap
proximately enforced in them,
and the amount of whiskey con
sumed is infinitesimal as com
pared with thal consumed when
whiskey was openly sold either in
dispensaries or in saloons."
Meeting of the County Farmers'
An enthusiastic meeting of the
Farmers' Union of Edgefield coun
ty was held in the court house on
Monday last, the Hon. W. R.
Parks presiding. The exercises
were opened with prayer by Rev.
J. T. Littlejohn. , 1
The following unions were rep

and L S Ridlehoover.

John C Morgan and J H Stone.

john, P H Bussey and W F Floyd.
Modoc : John . Harvley, E G
Long Branch: Geo. W Scott and
J C Claxton.
Trenton: M K Padgett.
Meeting Street: W P Johnson.
The following resolutions was
offered by Hon. W. R. Parks.
Whereas we believe that one of
the greatest causes of our present
unreliable and : unsatisfactory la
bor and tenantry stem has been
brought about Ky or grown out of
what is generally known as the
agricultural lien law, whereby a
certain irresponsible class are en
abled to secure advances by giving
a moitgsge or lien on a supposed-1
ly growing crop, which encours- j
gee the credit system and places
this class beyond the control of
employer and landlord,
Therefore be it resolved, that
we, the Farmers Educational and
Co-operative Union of Edgefield
county, most respectfully request
our representatives in the legisla
ture to use their office in an effort
to have the said agricultural lien
law repealed. (With an abiding
faith we e-ver pray).
After very earnest discussions
by Hon. W.R. Parks, Wm. To
ney, John Harvley, J. M. Wright
and H. W. Dobey, the foregoicg
resolutions was adopted.

Account of the Annual State Con
vection of The W. C. T. U. Held
at Newberry Last Week.
The tweuty fourth annual Con
ventioa of-the Woman's Christian
Temperance Union for this State
has come and gone. That this con
vention was the most successful
ever huid in this state ?B conceded <
by those who know the organiza- ,
tion's history. The success of the
convention may be attributed to,
many oaubes, but the most potent ?
1st. The hospitality and big ;
heartedness of the people of the
town of Newberry.
2nd. The elegant addresses of
learned men and women.
3rd. The experience of tweuty- j
four years of the Woman's Chris
tian Temperance Uuion in thia 1
state supplemented by the experi- ,
ence and practical results of the
Woman's Christian Union hu the ,
state of Georgia.
4th. The realization that prac- ,
tical results of (he temperance ,
workers evidenced by prohibition
in many of the counties of the ,
Palmetto' State, and the patent
proof that the weak wave of pro- ,
bibition created eome years ago,
and spurned, scorned, aud belit
tled, has now overwhelmed and
washed av ay the alcoholic spirits
from huudreds ol the counties in
tbe United States, and eveu from ?
whole states, and reduced greatly
the number of places at which al- ,
coholic spirits are dispensed in
our own beloved state. j
The beet way to control alcohol
ic spirits perhaps, bas come near
er taxing to their ' utmost the
greatest powers of every govern
ment known to the world: Some
governments and some people
have reached one conclusion, and
some another relative to its use
,and sale, but the Woman's Chris
tian Temperance Uuion has acted
ou that part of tbe Lord's prayer,
"Lead us not into temptation,"
and have endeavored, and are now
endeavoring to remove the temp
tation au far as possible, and the
fact is indisputable that men
drink less when the stimulant is
farthest away, and hardest to get.
The convention met at 8 p. m.
on Saturday, September 28th, at
Newberry, S. C. A synopsis of the
most important f?mures of the
proceedings were as follows: Sep
tember 28tb, 8 p. m. Address by
Mrs. Harris Armour, president of
the Woman's Christian Temper
ance Union of Georgia, and one
of the greatest factors in securing
prohibition in Georgia. Her sub
ject was "How Georgia went dry."
Among her reasons she stated:
the boys taught years ago by the
Woman's Christian Temperance
Unioa of Georgia are uow voters.
This organization early after
the members of the General As
sembly bad been elected, kept
them 'ell supplied with temper
ance literature; they had fast days
for prayer, and prayed that Geor
gia might go dry. They went to
Atlanta and pressed their cause
on the General Assembly with ali
their might and enthusiasm, and
based their arguments on reason
and truth, and before the session
of the General Assembly each day,
the Woman's Christian Temper
ance Union would meet in the
galleries of the halls of the Senate
and House, and sing songs of
praise to God, and display their
banners. They made a fight which
required the members of the
General Assembly to take either
the one side or the other;, she
spoke of the manhood, honesty,
and high standard of editor Graves
of Atlanta, Georgia, who refused
to sell bis consecration to prohi
bition for thousands of dollars;
the Woman's Christian Temper
ance Union made a fight before
the people for prohibition candi
dates. This noble woman urged
the Woman's Christian Temper
ance Union of this state to take a
similar course in South Carol ina,
and assured them that their labor
would be rewarded.
On Sunday, September 29th, at
ll o'clock a. m. Dr. Cromer,
gave a most excellent address. He
said that twenty years ago he had
delivered an address of welcome
to the Woman's Christian Tem
perance Union, in the opera house
in Newberry. That address he
said, was an address of . welcome
delivered by the dry mayor of a
wet town. He said that he thought
the time had come when in all
fairness the l?gislature should do
one of two things; either passa
general prohibition law for the
entire state, or general prohibitiou
law for th? entire state with the
local option featuie, allowing the
counties which wanted dispensa
ries to vote iu dispensaries, put
ting the burden upon them. Dr.
Cromer staled that it was said by
a member of the board of control
that the difference between Char
leston and Greenville was that
when a blind tiger was caught in
Greenville he was put on the
chaiugang; when a blind tiger
was caught in Charleston he waif
put on the grand jury .But he wai
glad to say that uuder Mayor
Rhett conditions are improving.
Dr. Cromer spoke of the fact thai
the brauch of the Keeley iuetituto
located iu Columbia, bad teut ou:
200 graduates each > ear since i**> ?
location iu Columbia He sp'ike o.'
the fact that there were mci?
graduates fi om this institute in
dewberry county than tb<-re were
graduates of the South Card inn
Uollege. In conclusion Dr. Cro
zier urged toe people to take some
iction in regard to this problem.
He eaid, let every man ?who loved
ais country, who was willing to
live aeeordk-e tj thc- doctrine of
Bt. Paul, which not only forbid?
i man to injure bis fallow-man.
but commanded him to help him,
rally to thone who insisted that
legalized traffic in liquor should
be banished from our country.
Miss Shaner of Missouri made
a very interesting talk to thechil
dren on Su oday afternoon, her
subject being giants, dealing es
pecially with the giants of alco
hoi, the cigarette, profanity and
Mrs. Sprott, piesident of tb*!

very beautiful address on Tues
day, which was enjoyed very m?cb
by all present.
