As we predicted when the war
question was first being agitated, the
North and West are reaping a har
vest. Wheat is going up with rapid
bounds and all other necessaries of
liie proportionately. The products
of the South remain about the same.
The farmers of the West are not get
ting the benefit of ibis tremendous
rise, it is the speculators who bought
up the produce long ago.
Dewey's victory at Manila is oven
greater than at first reported, and
Sampson's fleet is probably at this
time off Porto Rico waiting for a
favorable opportunity tc - t ':e. The
invasion of Cuba will begin in a few
days. Troops are being concentra
ted at Tampa and other points to be
ready to move on a moments notice.
It is the intention of the war depart
ment to land sufficient men in Cuba
to do the work necessary in short or
der. Congress in recognition of
Deweys magnificent victory has voted
him thanks and a $10,000 sword.
Hurrah for Dewey.
Editor Gonzales, of the C:lumbia
State, left Columbia last night en
route for Tampa to join the invad
ing forces. Mr. Gonzales has the
Cuban cause at heart and there is no
editor in the Union who has worked
more faithfully for it than he. Now
his pen is pushed aside and to the
front he has gone where we hope he
will get the wishes of his heart grati
It is reported that the Spanish
fleet has retreated to Cadiz.
All political parties must have
money to conduct a campaign and
the prohidition party is not an ex
ception to the rule. Mr. A. C. Jones
chairman of the prohibition execu
tive committee has issued a circular
appealing for money, and we have no
doubt the money collected will be
spent for electioneering purposes,
but how the prohibition leaders pro
pose spending that campaign money
will develop later. Imagine a com
mittee of clergymen at the polls with
crisp bills between their fingers in
ducing voters to cast votes for a prin
ciple, or if the clergymen feel that
such a course would be undignified,
the place be filled by an Elder, Stew
ard, or Deacon; the campaign mon
ey must be spent, and for the pur
chase of votes money is a~ mighty
good thing.
We have never yet seen a prohibi
tionist who will admit that he pre
fered the bar system to the dispensa
ry, but on the contrary they all say
if prohibition cannot be obtained
they want the Dispensary. When
Governor Tillman first under took to
enforce the Dispensary law it was
entirely experimental, many sincere
prohibitionists were anxious that the
law should have a fair showing; in
the effort to enforce the law the de
plorable affair at Darlington occur
red. The liquor men united with the
opponents of the State administra
tion and a terrible condition was
brought about-it was an insurrection,
and Governor Tillman was forced to
put it down; militia companys re
fused to respond to his call, many
through the influence of those who
were opposed to Governor Tiliman's
side of the factional fence,it wvas a most
unfortunate condition of things and
one which will always be regretted;
nevetheless the administration could
not surrender the government to a
lawless mob. Among those who used
every effort to thwart Governor
Tillman in his efforts to enforce the
laws of the State was A.C. JIones,then
a traveling salesman for a Northern
drygoods concern,now the chairman of
the prohibition State Executive Com
mittee, and the same Jones who is
to-day, calling upon the prohibi
tion people to pay the freight for
the campaign he proposes to wage
this summer. Jones happened to be
in Manning the night the Manning
G.uards received orders to go to Dar
lington, and he joined others to in
terfere, and did -succeed in persuad
ing all but about ten from obeying
orders. We know Mr. Jones; he is
a most affable gentleman, and while
he is a Prohibitionist, yet be is a red
Tillman's faction does. We are satis
fied that his prejudices were so strong
against the Reform faction that, Pro
hibitionist as he is, he would have
accepted a return of bar-rooms to
bring about the defeat of the dis
We are glad that factional politics
has at last been eliminated from the
dispensary law and that the question
has resolved itself into what is the
most practical plan for the best inter
ests of the State. There are some
still who hope to keep up a factional
spirit by fighting the dispensary law,
this was recently exhibited in the
Charleston convention which wanted
the "State outside to know they send
to the convention a solid anti-Till
man delegation," but the conserva
tive people, Reformers and Conserva
tives are not that wayand, fortunate
ly they are largely in the majority.
Mr. Jones, Smith or anybody else,
with or without campaign funds will
never succeed in successfully oppos
ing the dispensary on factional lines.If
the Prohibitionists win they will have
to convince the people that their plan
is practical, and that they are not in
league withr "blind tigers," to bring
about a condition of free liquor for
the overthrow of the element that
has had a controlling power in poli
tics in this State since 1890.
At last the long-looked-for decis
ion in the dispensary case from the
United States Supreme Court has
been rendered in favor of the State,
and it is to be hoped that all vexa
tious litigation growing out of oppo
sition to the law will end, and that
everybody will join in and aid the
government in enforcing the law.
Under the decision the original pack
age people will have to strike tent
and leave the State. This is a great
victory for the State and if the au
thorities will go to work and run the
"tigers" out there is no earthly
power that can prevent the dispen
sary from getting as near prohibition
as the most ardent advocate of pro
hibition can desire. Since there is
no longer a question as to the right
of the State regulating her liquor
laws, we want to see the Governor
open up a vigorous campaign agair.st
all illicit dealers, wbether they be
original package men or "blind
tigers." Set the ball in motion; no
quarter should be shown those who
have deprived the taxpayers of this
State out of thousands of dollars.
Every last one of them should be
seized, their stuff confiscated and the
proprietors punished; in this way the
State miaht get back some of its
losses. One thing is certain, there is
absolutely no excuse for the existence
now of a "blind tiger" in any town or
county in the State. It is true under
the decision liquor can be ordered
for private use, but with the proper
vigilance that matter can be looked
after. Watch other States now and
see if they do not follow this State in
settling the liquor question.
The Charleston Critic very strong
ly intimates that politics had some
thing to do with the refusal of the
companies of that city to volunteer,
and this to, at a time when Reform
ers are making concessions.
The News and Courier, failing to
prevent the boys outside of Charles
ton from volunteering, endeavored to
get the government to mobilize the
volunteers in Charleston; failing in
that also, it is now attempting, from
its editorial rooms, to run the camp
at Columbia. Of course the com
manding officers at the camp appre
ciate the News and Courier's solici
Governor Ellerbe's millitary ap
pointments have given satisfaction to
every body except a few who expect
ed to be awarded a plum, and those
who have made up their minds to
damn him anyhow. His enemies
admit the appointments are first class
and calculated to inspire confidence
among the men who are to follow
them, but in order to throw a suspi
cion upon the governor's motiv'es
they charge that he made his selec
tions to further his political interests.
How absurd?
If President McKinley was to order
into service an American general
with a brigade of Spanish soldiers to
invade Cuba would the American
people have much confidence in the
successful result of the expedition?
We cannot see jnuch hope for prohi
bition, with a prohibition leader and
dispensary lieutenants. The prohi
bition party of this State is in, as
embarrassing a position since their
convention put out a mongjrel ticket:
as was the Good Templars a few
years ago wvhen they sent one of their
leading lecturers to an institute to be
cured of the liquor habit.

The State's victory in the Dispen
sary ease is largely due to the deter
mination of Senator Tillman, the in
defatigable efforts of Attorney Gen
eral .Barber and Governor Ellerbe's
confidence in the law being the best
liquor regulation possib!e to enforce.
Attorney General Barber has an

Prohibition and Politics.
The prohibition ticket creates but
little enthusiasm, even among the
strongest temperance advocates, and
we do not believe that even its most
sanguiue friends have any strong
hope for success. The triumphs of
candidates nominated by that Colum
bia convention does not mean the
success of prohibition, but simply a
transfer of political power in our
State, together with the emoluments
of office.
Even were the prohibition ticket
elected, they could do nothing toward
advancing their cause, or changing
the dispensary law, without the con
sent of the Legislature. The Gover
nor, Attorney- General and other
State officers would find their hands
bound should they try to enforce
prohibition in South Carolina without
they are backed by the law-making
power. Therefore, every reasoning
voter will see at a glance that the
prohibition contest, as mapped out
by the recent convention, cannot ad
vance their cause one step, but sim
ply means that the leading offices in
our State will cbange hands. Gover
nor Ellerbe has earnestly striven to
enforce our every law, and if the next
Legislature abolishes the dispensary,
and substitutes therefor prohibition,
he will not only approve the bill, but
use every power at his command to
have the new law enforced. The
most ardent prohibitionist could do
no more.
So one can see at a glance that
when the prohibition convention neg
lected to demand a separate vote on
the leading question of prohibition
vs. dispensary, and, ignoring that di
rect issue, saw fit to nominate a full
State ticket, spiked in with staunch
dispensary advocates and including
habitual .liquor drinkers, they had
lost their- golden opportunity. It
matters not howv earnest a voter may
be in favor of restricting the sale of
intoxicants, or even declaring for
strict prohibition he will simply see
that in our State contest the only is
sue is a choice between candidates,
and not the vindication of any great
Now, had our prohibitionists de
manded that a vote be given the peo
ple on whether they desired the dis
pensary law or try the experiment of
prohibition, then there are thousands
of voters who would support the lat
ter'. But when an attempt is made
to get them to vote for an issue
through men, it will prove a dismal
failure. It is only a choice between
ofice-seekers, and not the vindication
of any great principle, and the peo
pe will reserve the pirivilege of vot
ing for the candidates of their own
choice, and not take those put forth
by a small convention, and nominated
in a committee room behind closed
Suppose that the prohibitionists
elect their every candid ate, from Mr.
Childs, who has Columbia water on

Dan Tompkins, how can they possi
bly hope to enforce prohibition in
South Carolina unless they elect a
House and Senate in full accord with
their views?-Piedmont Headlight.
MLinv old soldiers now f eel the etfe-ts of
the hard service they endured during the
war. 3Mr. Geo. S Anderson, of Rtossville,
York county ,who saw the hardest kind ot
service at the front, is now frequently trou
led with rheumatism. "I had a severe at
tack lately," be says, "and procured a bot
tle of Chamiberlain's Pain Balm. It did so
much good that I would like to know what
you would charge nme for one dozen bot
tles" M1r. Anderson wanted it both for his
own use and to supply it to his friends and
neighbors, as every family should have a
bottle of' it in their home not only for rheu
matism, but lame back, sprains, swellings,
cuts, bauises and burns, for which it is
unqualled. For sale by by R. B. Loryea,
To undertake to make a prohibi
tion ticket our of dispensary timber
is rather anomalous if not ludicrous.
Was it simply a playing at politics or
a grab at office? How did they hap
pen to put Dan Tompkins and Dr.
Timerman on the prohibition tiek
et, both of whom are well known
frieds of the dispensary? It's funry
to see Dan get on the platform and
then kick the thing from under him.
Dan's not in the declining business.
He never was. He wants to catch
'em a-comin, and a-gwine. But it
will he a ridiculous spectacle to see
old life-long prohibitionists, who hate
the dispensary and have fiercely de
nounced it and who have organized
the movement to make war on it,
marching up to the polls to vote for
one of its best friends and staunchest
supporters. It is a parallel case with
voting for a Republican on a Demo
cratic ticket. Prohibition timber is
not so scarce in this State that anti
prohibitionists have to be put on the
ticket.--Anderson Advocate.

Private Bryan.
After denouncing in severe terms the
self-seeking and jealous militiamen of his
State for their disgraceful wrangling, Hon.
William J. Bryan has offered h:s services
as a private for the impending war. He
hesitated about taking this step from the
fact that the carping and envions elements
which fight him on all occasions would ac
ense him ot demagogism.
But Bryan has volunteered, and the
great American people note it with satis
faction and pride. Having won an exalted
place in the hearts of the people as a civic
leader, he proposes to stay with them in
the strife of arms. In view of his faithful
ness to every duty of citizenship so far the
people accept his action in good faith,
knowing that it is only in consonance with
a career of distinguished fidelity to the
public welfare.
It is probable that Bryan will go into the
war as a private and remain one. It can
nut be expected that he will take high offi
cil rank, having no niilitary training. His
example is therefore inspiring and will
doubtless bhing many people to a sense of
duty-that of defending the common coun
