red at the Postoffice at Ne, berry, S. C., as second class matter. TUESDAY, AUGUST 29, 1905 The Election Today. The election will (be held today c the dispensary. The question has bec pretty thoroughly discussed in th county and every one ought to kno just how he wants to vote. There no reason why we should not have quiet and peaceable election toda and we would be pleased to see full vote so that we might have full expresion of all the voters in 1 county. In Pickens and Union whei elections have been held only aboi one-third of the Total vote of tl counties was polled. Of course was the fault of those who did n< vote and they have no right to obie and the result might not have bec changed if the full vote had be( polled. It should be remembered that wha ever the result in this county tod, there can be no election again on ti question for four years. The Herald and News favors tl abolition of the state dispensary ai the state constabulary and then I each county say what it wants. M do not believe the people are rea< for prohibition, nor do we believe prohibitory law will amount to mut where so large a minority uses whi key as a beverage and believes th it is not wrong so to do. Besides great mary who will vote again the dispensary are not prohibitionis and when the two are put togeth you will have a majority who do n favor prohibition. With public se timent in that condition ycu will ha a very difficult task to enforce ai prohibitory law, and so-called prol bition will be a failure. The evils intemperance will not be minimiz but rather increased. However, shall make no erotest if a majori of the people want to give a trial prohibition. If the matter were left to cotIo control we would favor the dispensa system as the lesser of the evils. A1 if the system was so managed as make the control and regulation the sale of whiskey the predomina features it is the best solution a would mnimize the evils following *r use of whiskey. Mr. Jones. If Mr. Jones was only giving a "i view of the history of the dispensa law from the time it was pass through the different administratio up to date" and did not intend to personal why should he say as McSweeney's administration that believed there was an understandi betwveen1 the dispensary authorit and the blind tigers," etc.. and t1 "this state of affairs cQntinued throu McSweeniey's second term. This a charge by insinuation of collusi on the part of McSweeney's adma istration with the blind tigers. trade if they would buy liquor th would not be molested. We sims asked why >is effort to single c the McSweeney administration cast reflection upon it and if th~ was foundation for it to be speci *and produce the proof. That is Mr. Jones asks us to print a wh< lot of stuff from the court of clan: case which we do as a courtesy I Lwhich does not interest anybody a we apologize to our readers for prii ing it, and which does not prove at thing except that which everybc who cares to know knows alrea chat there were blind tigers duri M.cSweeney's administration and< ery other administration since the 1 was enacted. We do not deny th We did not deny it. WVe did nota for proof WVe did ask for pre of the understanding charged and collusion insinuated. Mr. Jones fa to specity. It is alright for the committee vestigating the dispensary to get the testimony available and not to contnned to the rules of evidence I fra witness to get up and implic; go'd men on simple hearsay is gol a li-trc far. WVe were thrown v( intimately with Geni. Gunter :.iri L ycearsi we kow him well and do no: believe the hearsay testimony of Constable Fant -hat Gunter was implicated in securing jobs for con- el stables at so much per. And nobody H who knows Gen. Gunter will believe dz it. Judge Prince to whom Fant says b< he told of this condition does not re remember it and Fan: cannot estab- p( lish it. If any body is guilty of wrong doing let it come out but we should not try to implicate people ar on mere hearsay. d n th n One slander affecting a member is of the state board of liquor control w has been nailed. In his speech at is Edgefield Senator Tillman casually a remarked that somebody told him that st y John Bell Towill, who helps manage a the dispensary, had accepted a fine a Kentucky horse from a distiller. Sen- ac e ator Tillman did not make the charge; e he simply repeated what he had ac it heard. Mr. Towill. however, declares $2 e that 'he bought the animal from a Jc it trader in his town, paying him $275. )t That sets one rumor at rest. Now J( :t for the next.-Ex. n Newspaper men very seldom have H n $275 to pay for a horse. Mr. Towill will have to explain a little further.- A t- Darlington News. y But Mr. Towill is not a newspaper F ie man. And besides he is amply able to buy a horse and pay for it and j< ie was before he became a member of Ld the state board. E et fe We give large space in this issue to 21 v the dispensary investigation. We take fc a il that is the main thing in the public b; h eye just now. ri at The investigating committee will tj a meet on the 5th; of September in Sum- ci st ter -co continue the testimony in re ts gard to the dispensary management. la ,,,r Advertised Letters. ai B.-Stiles W.
