WILLIAM JENNINGS BRYAN.
ADLAI E. STEVENSON,
AN EXCUSE FOR POLITICS.
A great deal of political capi
tal is being made of Senator Till
man's assertion "that the preach
ers and barkeepers are in an un
holy alliance led by Col. Hoyt to
destroy the dispensary." We
have iot the slightest idea that
Senator Tillman intended to con
vey the impression that there ex
isted a written, or even a verbal
agreement between the preach
ers and barkeepers, but that both
the preachers and the barkeep
ers are working for the same
end-the destruction of the dis
pensary. No one doubts that
high motives are prompting the
clergy, and in their zeal for a
cause which they regard a reli
gious one, they do not stop to
consider the practical results:
the one leading idea with them
is to bring about a condition of
holiness which they think ought
to exist. The barkeepers and
anti-dispensary forces are taking
advantage of the religious fervor
of the preachers to destroy the
dispensary, and without any for
mal agreement or alliance, they
have tacked on to the preachers
in the effort to kill the dispen
sary, thus making the preachers
and barkeepers enlisted in the
same cause. but with different
Senator Tillman's blunt and
harsh statement has aroused the
resentment of the preachers and
they, with a show of righteous
indignation, are using the Sena
tor's statement as a cudgel to
wield over the heads of church
mnember-s to make votes for Col.
Hoyt. We have no idea that
there is a preacher in South Car
olina who thinks Senator Till
man meant that the preachers
and barkeepers had actually
made a compact, but all the same
it gives them material for an ex
cuse to electioneer for Col. Hoyt,
and they are not failing to take
advantage of it. We do not know
what effect the preachers are go
ing to have in this election; they
are a large body and should have
influence, but if the preachers
continue messing in politics an
injurious effect on the church
is bound to be the final
result. We read where this
and that preacher has condemn
ed the opinion expressed by Sen
ator Tillman, but nowhere have
we read where the preachers
have expressed approval of Gov
ernor McSweeney's course in the
Florence matter, where he did
his sworn duty, and showed to
the people that he was a man
who cared more for his oath than
he did for the votes of a mob.
No, but had Governor McSwee
ney acted in accordance with the
wishes of the mob, the preachers
would have denounced him, and
for fear that their candidate, Col.
Hoyt, may lose votes. they with
hold the praise Governor Mc
Sweeney so justly merits.
We are thoroughly convinced
that the present prohibition
movement is politics pure and
simple, engineered by politicians
for the purpose of getting con
trol of the official positions. The
politicians hare shrewdly man
aged to get the preachers on
their side, by professing to advo
cate a moral principle: this pro
fession has caught a great many
good men who will say they have
no idea that we can have prohi.
bition, but ti e fact that the ques
tion is here. they must record
their votes in favor of the priop)
osition, and leave the results
with (;od. Then.l there are othei
me equally as grood, who take
the view that every man is en
dowed with the faculty of think
ing for himself and that God will
hold him responsible, if by his
act or vote he brings about a
condition worse than we have
now. We agree with the latter
view, to cast a vote for- prohibi
tion when we believe that such a
results, and do so with the idea
that we leave the results with
God, is, in our mind, nothing
short of fanaticism. We heard
a man say recently, -I would
vote for prohibition even if 1
knew that liquor would be sold
at every turn in the roaibd.eause
prohibition is right, that l have
nothing to do with the results,
those I leave to rod.
such a iman there is no use *r\'in,
to reasol. He would have the
evil which he feels called upon
to drive out. --at every turn in
the road - rather than vote to
have somlie protectioll from the
The matter for reasonable men
to consider, is not whether pro
hibition is right or wrong, but
will a prohibitory law on our
statute books at this time be to
the best interests of the State?
In our judgment it will not, for
we honestly believe, the ideal
condition hoped for by the
preachers, is a dream, which can
never be realized on this earth,
and one which, if brought about,
will give freer sway to the
liquor evil and retard the
cause of religion, and will
result in financial benefit to
the barkeepers whose votes will
be allied with that of the preach
ers to destroy the present sys
tem of liquor control.
If the preachers and barkeep
ers succeed in electing Col. Hoyt
with a Legislature to enact a
prohibitory law, how will the
law be enforced' The dispen
sary law now requires sherifs and
magistrates to see after its en
forcement, and we have vet to
see where a sheriff or mag-istrate
attempted to enforce the law.
Would it not be the same with
prohibition" There is an old
saying, "what is everybody's
business is nobody's business,"
and a prohibitory law cannot and
will not be enforced if, as Col.
Hoyt says, "the enforcement
will be left to the local officers."
Well, suppose that to enforce
prohibition an army of consta
bles are employed, where is the
money to pay them to come from
An extra tax would have to be
levied to raise the money to pay
constables. The r-evinue now
coming from the dispensary goes
to the public schools and county
expenses, take i' away and the
tax levy is bound to be raised in
order to meet the deficiency
Are our readers ready and will
ing to contribute money out of
their pockets by paying~ more
taxes, simply to gratify a theory
which they know is imp~ractic-a
We lh-ar- Prohibitionists talk
about '-blind tigr-s,"- and that
the dispensary law is not c-arr-ied
out. Will these same people
show where they have ever given
the slightest aid to help (-arry
out the lawy How many of them
have sat on juries and refused to
convict a blind tiger with dir-ect
proofy How many of these pro
fessing Pr-ohibitionists have pat

many of them are inter-ested in

of the freight and express books
could be had, we ventur-e the as

Prohibitionist, and probably
some who are taking such a lead

Prohibition is a failur-e wher

crime against the State, as well as
against God that ought to be suppress
ed." yet this same document would pro
vide'for the manufacture and sale of
whisker hv restricting it to "medicinal,
sacratenittl and scientific purposes."
So the intelligent and discriminating
reader will perceive that the committee
does not propose to absolutely prohibit
the manufacture and sale of whiskey.
hut simply to make a change in the
mni~tlnt'r of dealing with it. which. in
the comiiittee's opinion, would be a
ittir way to deal with the liquor busi
ne's titan a at present managed. Ob
, e. however. that the State would
still have to maintain a dispensary or
lts mlake dispensaries out of the drug
store. From a religious or christian
point of view. why have whiskey at all?
if the handling of whiskey by the State,
as is now done, is so demoralizing and
hone blighting. why provide for its
sale in any forni Why not abolish it
altogethti' and prohibit its manufac
ture? Wiy practice deception by pro
posilg to "restrict its sale to medicinal.
sacramental and scientific purposes?"
F'or how easy it will be to get whiskey for
--medicinal" purposes? How easy for
"'seientitie" purposes' And in the name
of Godt what earthly use can the church
have for spirituous liquors for sacra
mental' purposes'? The wine that
Christ made. it has been contended.
was the pure juice oi the grape and un
fermented: and if this be so. why not use
that kintd of wine for "sacramental"
purposes. without having to provide a
. place to keep fermented wine for ""sac
ramt'ntal purposes:" And then again.
Mr. .ditor. if tilt' "sale and nianufac
tut e" of whiskey is a crime against the
State. is it not just as great a crime
against the entire nation. and just as
much subject to restriction as a "crime"
against the nation as against the State?
