Join the people from expressing
their will upon the liquor ques

issue an injunction to prevent
the holding of the election at
Spartanburg. It has not been
so long since we heard the hue
and cry against "government by
injanction," by the very same'
brood of politiciansnowinterested
in preserving the Dispensary, and
now that their interests are at
stake, they are quick to seek the
courts with technicalities to pre
vent the people from exercising
the rights of citizenship. Is it
any wonder that honest dispen
saryites are ready to join with
the Prohibitionists to wipe the
liquor institution out of exist
ence? The greatest boon to an
American citizen is liberty; and
when his liberty is infringed up
-on, or if he is thwarted in the
exercise of it, his blood boils
within him and he strikes hard
and furious for its maintinance.
In this democratic government
of ours the people voice their

this in the-selection of theii pub

this upon vital public questions.

.WANTS A LAW TO BE ENFORCED.
In the South Carolina General
Assembly there is a young mem
ber who first saw the light in
Clarendon county, spent his boy
*hood days upon his father's farm
in the Fork, graduated at the
. South Carolina College, located
in Columbia, was admitted to the
bar, dud by perseverance has be
come one of the- prominent law
- yers in the capital city.' Mr.
McFaddin is preparingan amend
ment to the pistol-carriving law
which is to put a stop to the
abominable practice of carryipg
concealed pistols, with a view to
lessen the number of homicides
in this State. Last Friday's News
and Courier has 'the following
complimentary editorial :
". PIsTOL-TOTING ONCE MORE.
"-It was stated in our Columbia cor
-respondence yesterday that Represent
ative A. D. McFaddin of Richiand coun
tv would at the approaching session of
the Legislature call for consider-ation
of an important amendment to the pis
tol law of the State. The amendment
in question was introduced at the last
session of tbe House, but was merely
-read by its title. It proposes to have
dealers in pistols regularly licensed and
to omnel them tm keep an mexat record
of every weapon they sell together with
t be name and an identifying description
of the purchaser. It will be illegal for
the owner of one of these pistols to
transfer it to another person wituout
notifying the dealer from whom he
bought it.. The dealer will also be
placed under a bond to comply with the
"As a matter of general principle we
are in favor of any and every law which
promises to break the people of this or
any other State of the abominable ' pis
tol-toting ' habit. Without more exact
information on the subject we are not
prepared to discuss at length the merits
of the measure which Representative
McFaddin proposes as a means of help
ing along an admirable cause. We are
rather inclined to think, however, that
a really vigorous and courageous en
forcement of the laws now on the statute
books. or those that may subsequently
be placed upon them, is that of which
we stand most urgently in need. It will
not be denied, we suppose. that the
laws against carrying concealed wea
pons are broken day in'and day out by
thousands of men in this and other
States. The enforcement of the law is
in a measure at least perfunctory. If a
charge is madelagainst any one the po
lice or other magistrates usually do
their duty in pronouncing sentence, but
little or no diligence is observed in
seeking violators of the law by those
whose duty it is to apprehend them.
Every citizen .of the town and of the
country has observed for himself how
many men have pistols in their pockets,
vet it is rare indeed that one of them is
caught or punished. The criminal
classes are convicted of this offense as
they are convifted of other offenses,
but the classes not accounted suspicious
or criminal proceed with their viola
tions of this law pretty much as if it
were not on the statute books.
"Representative McFaddin has our
very best wishes. Anything that he
can do to break up the 'pistol-toting'
habit will be well done. It is to .be
hoped, however, that he will lend all
the aid in his power to compelling an
enforcement of the laws against men
who carry pistols as well as against
those who deal in them. When some
body is killed or maimed because a
drunken or too. hot-headed man has a
concealed weapon in his pocket. the
real criminal is the man who has the
pistol, not the man from whom he
bought it. A vigorous enforcement of
the law against 'pistol-toters' is the
best way of breaking up the habit of
ELEVEN CENTS REACHED.
The cotton situation is growing
beautifully bright. The price
opened with the week at the As
sociation's minimum figure, and
the indications are that the staple
will be rushed upon the market;
but in our opinion the rush of
cotton may come or it may go,
the price will go on higher and
higher. There will be fluctua
tions, to-day higher and to-mor
row lower, but the bear move
ment cannot, withstand natural
conditions. The country needs
the manufactured goods, and the
raw material is at last realized to
be scarce. The laws of supply
and demand, guided by sane coun
sel from an Association, will
force the bears into a corner to
make room for the bulls.
The Cotton Association said
stand pat until eleven cents has
been reached. Everything the
speculators cotild do was done to
prevent the price reaching the
minimum fixed by the Association
The price is here, and the loyal
and true are .at liberty to sell.
They deserved success for their
faithfulness. The reward is rich
lytheirs. But are you going to
sell all ? No. Our advice is:;
Dispose of your cotton gradually
and only for the purpose. of re
moving debt. Sell at eleven
cents and, pay your debts, even
if it takes all ; but if after you
have paid your debts there is
any left, hold for 1-24- cents;before
you eat your Christmas <dinner
you will get it. There is no power
on earth, in our opinion, which
will prevent cotton reaching 124
cents this year. But, while we
believe this, we think it abso
lutely important that debts
should be paid. The merchants
and banks have been lenient, .and
it is due them, after the aid they
gave yoli to get eleven cents, to
now -liquidate your indebtedness
The world stands appalled at
the atrociousness of the terrible
slaughter of innocent humanity
in Russia. Why are these people
being murdered, because they will
not bow down to the " Ikon" re
nounce the faith of their fathers.
and because, notwithstanding the
discrimination against them, even
in barbarous Russia. they live
and prosper by industry, econo

We cannot understand why it
is that the near-by civilized na
tions do not interfere and demand
that this slaughter be stopped.
When Cuba was in the throes of
tyranny and Spain sent over the
butcher Weyler, the bloody deeds
he perpetrrted fired the hearts
of Americans and the spirit of lib
erty demanded that Cuba should
be free. This demand was no
lip service, but it was enforced
at the point of the sword and
drove the Spaniard from 'the
island, and to-day,those once op
pressed people are enjoying free

Intoxicating lquors while I live:

And never take God's name in vain."
The Bible in the Common School.
That was a wise word spoken
by Rev. William F. Quayle, D. D.,
of Chicago, to a company of grad
uating lawyers. on the matter of
the Bible in the common schools.
This eloquent preacher was im
pressing upon his audience that
a lawyer has as much spiritual
business in the world as a preach
er. His sermon went far and
wide, but kept at home. paradox
ically speaking, in that its tre
mendous statements ever brought
up at the hearts and consciences
of lawyers and the needs in this
country of men who will keep
true religion on the soul -throne
whatever their occupation in life
may be. Said the preacher:
" We have found that, so far as
history goes, it is impossible-to
make or maintain a government
without the presence of religion.
When the French Revolution
thought to play havoc with the
Church and to abolish religion
and God there came nothing out
of their movement. But when
that great statesman and genius
Napoleon Bonaparte came into
power one of his first acts was to
bring the .Church back into its
relation to civil government. We
must not try to turn God out of
doors. . We dare not forget that
nihilism is atheism, and atheism
is anarchy. And we must not
forget that God is that cohesive
quantity which changes atoms
into sugs which light the world
so that men may live and.not die.
And God is ever changing atoms
into one solid whole, the tenuous
into the compact, the mercurial
into the stable. And if these
lawyers understand this-that
God wants them not to put Him
out of doors in' law-that Gdd
wants them to be no less religious
because there is no Church of
the state, and that they are to
help America Loep God, and so
far as AmericA as lost God they
are to go out. help bring Him
back. That is what God wants.
That is what America needs. Let
us guard our inferences.
"Now you take the matter of
the public school. It is not a
Methodist school: it is not a
Presbyterian school: it is not a
Roman Catholic school; and no
body rightly American wants the
common school -denominational.
But we are to understand that
nobody who wants longevity for
the school but wants the school
to be religious. You are not go
ing to have a school equipped to
train people up to the full stature
of citizenship if you are not going
to teach God. You are not going
to do it. Governments that so
do die ; they die at the .top ; they
die at the heart. The very mo
ment you expunge from the cur
riculum of the public schools
God's order and God's truth you
begin to breed anarcliies. The
Bible belongs in the common
school. I plead in the name of
the Church and inthe name of the
state that Christianity be not in
cidental to American life but fun
damental to American life ; and
f we are to maintain the dignity
we now have, if we.are to be be
neficent to the world in which we
are to play a part, we MUsT keep
God in our house."
A Child's Faith.
A short time ago a little girl
of Fort Lee gave a beautiful illus
tration of courage and faith. The
Burns family live ina cottage at
the base of the Palisades, and
Eileen, six years old, attends a
parochial school in Fort Lee. On
her way home fronm school she
attempted to climb down the face
of the Palisades. At the point
where she attempted to descend
the cliffs are two hundred feet
high. After -going a short dis
tance she lost her footing and
fell. In falling she grasped a
large boulder that projected from
the formation and to it she clung.
Through the trees and rocks she
could see below the roof of her
home. Not wishing to alarm her
mother by calling for help, the
child for severe! :ninutes tried to
regamnher footing. Finally, find
ing her strength failing, she
called aloud for help. Her cries
were heard by her mother, who,
wondering at he~r delay in coming
from school, had gone to seek
her and was now horrified to see
her hanging from the cliffs. The
mother's cries brought a number
of women to the scene, who in
vain tried to reach the child.
Seeing her mother's grief, the
child called to her : " Don't cry,
mamma ; I have said a prayer
and God will help me." Help

one's simple faith, but Christians
will not doubt thatHe who marks
the falling sparrow heard and
ns wered lher prayer for help.
