Senator Tillman's second argu
ment-apparon tly intended both in
favor of tlic dispensary and against
prohibition-is that men will drink
and, therefore, liquor will be sold
- illichow. That it is best to have it
d ?ne legally and that tho dispensary
i-? tho best legal scheme for control?
lng its sale That prohibition will
noi prohibit and will, therefore, fos
Lor thu illegal sale.

tl the face ot' the law, but actually
seizes the law and uses it to make
merchandise for its own profit, not
it' liquor alone, but of bottles and
boxes and cases and presents of
? .very description. The illegal sale,

available commodotics accessory to

being cart ifd on by the sworn otlieers
of the legal system and the money

assisted in their own private and
Ilegal schemes by him'. Could con
fusion bc worse confounded? Is
there any danger that prohibition
could beat this? Is it beatable?
And thc worst of it is that this
doubly disgraceful spectacle must
continue as long as tho dispensary

Again, can the contention that tho
legalized sale is preferable to the ille
gal sale which would go on under
prohibition bo maintained, even if
the legal sale were possible without
any form of the illegal ? This is
Senator Tillman's contention. If his
prinoiplo is sound it must stand tho
test of generalization. Would thc
Senator be willing to generalize it?
W ' dd he contend that because the
lets of theft, murder and rape, for
example, will bo committed illegally,

it Would bc better to I egal ?7.6 these
I'-ls? This is the principle. Il sound
why not apply il in all cases? These
vi e all recognized crimes-liquor sell*
tug undoubtedly the most hurtful to
society. Why favor it supremely ?
Kadi of the Ten Commandments is
broken every day. Should we, there
fore, ami ul them and legalize ethi
cally the acts which they prohibit?
Would Senator Tillman agree to
ibis? Vet obviously his prinoiplo
demandait. Kverybody knows that
no prohibitory law, ethical or legis
ative, prohibits absolutely. No one
?retonds that it ?loes, ever ?lid, or

Senator Tillman mi.raht defend his
{loition hore by assuming that the
sale of liquor ns a beverage is not a
crime, but a form of legitimate busi
ness. It is hardly conceivable that
:t man of bis intelligence should
make this assumption, and certainly
not fair to attribute it to bim if bo

make it. the ease his dispensary
Would be but little better off. It
would be ohanged only from a moral
to a legal impostor. For surely tho
.State lias no righi to monopolize any
legitimate business, denying lo its
oitizen tho privilege of engaging in
that business. In any cnse, therefore,
the Senator's dispensary arguments

the popul?r vote. The people are
recovering their sonvs and they in?
ton?! to bc benni on this. They are
settling it as fast as they can in ac
cord with right ?'ind reason.
The Senator's Biblical argument
if intended to support the dispen
sary or justify the drinking of liquor
as a beverage hardly invites exami
nation. As a rule each man reads
his own Bible ; .ind each will doubt
less lind, us the writer does, that HIS
Bible does not read that way tor him.
Enough for the dispensary. What
are the real arguments for prohibi
tion ?
1. It is Scriptural. Tho Hilde
j everywhere seeks to minimize crime
with a "thou shalt not." There can
! be no doubt that if alcoholic liquors,
; as wo have them, had been known
( when the decalogue was pennell
there would have been another com
mandment : "Thou shalt not make
or take or in any way communicate
to another the accursed 'stuff.' "
2. Any inherent evil that is a
menace to public morals and public
. safety should bc pi ohibited by law.
j Liquor selling is everywhere recog
nized as such an evil. All civilized
people outlaw such evils and enforce
thc law as best they can unless tho
evil be one from which a majority
wish to derive supposed pleasure or
profit. l>ut in all cases tho best peo
ple endeavor to prohibit all such
evils by law and this is right.
8. To prohibit the sale of liquor is
the only ethical solution of the li
quor problem, and, therefore, the
only safe one. If we prohibit its
sale and make an honest effort to en
force thc law our duty is met and
our obligation to God and humanity
discharged. If then our boys become
drunkards the responsibility is with
them and those who defile them-not
with us, for wo have done all we
could to prevent it. If a man brings

for all the evils that follow. Hu wh<
VOteS against its sale and lends bi

diarizes bis whole duty. If, then, i
is sold "anyhow" the responsibility i
not on liiin, but on those who violiiti
thu law-a vast difference to on
who has proper regard for his civil
Jami moral obligation. Under prohi
tioil any man CHU, of course, onie
' from without as much liquor as In
chooses for his own use. But in easi
of sin-h order the responsibility fo
its effects is on him alone. If, how
ever, he could buy that same liquo

voted to or?ate for him the lega
right to buy becomes responsible fo
its exercise and for all the COI180
quencos which follow. Truly, it i
no trivial matter to east a vote to le

State divest themselves of the re
j Bponsibility for the sins of others b;
refusing to vote to legalize those sin
or the souree from which they arise
i Let those who may persist in doinj
the wrong bear the whole respousi
bility for it. The only way to d<
this in the ease of the liquor Halli
is to vote for prohibition by votilij

jeopardize the eternal interests of bi
sons or his neighbor's sons and invit
on himself the responsibility for the!
ruin for the sake of the few pennie
that a vote against the dispensar;
may add to his tax account, or fo
any other reason. Be not deceive'
by tlio educational argument. Th
difference in the length of the achoo

Therefore vote it out and keep i

Saved from Death.
Newberry, October 14.-PHHSOII
gora on northbound midday Co
lumbia, Newberry and Laurent train
tell a thrilling sioiy of a little child's
almost miraculous escape from death
and of a mother's heroie interven?
tiou. While the train was (.pending
between Little Mountain ann Jhapiu,
a six-year-old boy whose name can
not be learned was Standing up on a
ear seat by nu open window when
the rapidly moving train lurched
around a curve and burled the lillie
fellow headlong through the window.
The mother, who occupied the seat
behind reached tar over the inter*
venino sea* ami caught the hoy's
ankle just ns it was disappearing
over the sill. Nothing but a moth
er's love could have made these
slender H?gers strong enough to
cheek the headlong Hight and keep
their bold under the terrific strain ns
the quivering little body swung to
and Ito like a pendulum al. lite side
of the thundering train.
It was only a matter of seconds
before Capt. J. s. Land, of Co
lumbia, who was just opposite, came
to the woman's aid and drew the
child into the uar uninjured. Not a
sound bail escaped from the boy's
lips during the entire episode, but his
face was white and drawn.

What do you think of a painter who
goes on buying his linseed oil and white
lead, and mixing, and tinting hy hand,
and charging his time for work that is

by machinery, done as your horseshoes
and nails are made.
Mistake, isn't it?
Ile is wasting his chance in tho world.
There is no better stu IT to do business
with than good horseshoes and paint;
and no better work than putting them
on. Good horseshoes well put on: h's
the putting 'em on that makes you a

Attorney Goneral's Ruling About Schools.
Columbia, October 14.-A rather
pe uliar question has come before
State Superintendent of Education
Martin Some time ugo thc State
Hoard of Education passed a resolu
tion encouraging tho building of new
schools. lt appears that a tract of
land lias boeu left school trustees in
Due of tbe counties for school pur?
noses, but it is with the condition,
L)i;il ih<- building shall remain upon
Lhis tract forever anil that in case of
removal it shall KO hack to the legal
?eira. On account of the shifting of
thc population it is possible I
some day the building may have
bc moved and it was a question as to
whether the Male Hoard could force
thc county trustees not to accept
land ttuder these conditions, A reso
lution of tlie boanl came up and thu
whole matter was laid before tho as
sistant Attorney General Vonni ms,
who decided that the State Hoard
lias authority i" tho matter in tho
following opinion :
"That such a resolution as this is
ill right.
"Resolved, That county boards of
education shall require all publio
school buildings to ho constructed
Dilly upon land deeded to thc trustees
in fee simple ; that no Behool build
ing shall bc aided by funds under
the school improvement act, unless
constructed according to plans ap
proved by tho Slate Board of Educa
tion, and furthermore, unless thu
building be of first-class material and
workmanship upon inspection by the
County Superintendent of Education.
I am of the opinion that it is within
tho competency of tho State Hoard
af Education to pass this regulation."
