ONLY ONE ISSUE.
Whether the people of Laurens
County vote against the dispensary or
in favor of prohibition does not matter,
the result will be the same, they will
arrive at the same point. The only way
to vote against prohibition this year is
to vote for State dispensary candidates.
The people of Laurens understand
by this time that as long as the state
dispensary remains, ways will be found
to defeat their will. The attempt to
vote out the dispensaries under the
Brice Law has so far failed.
To our mind, the firafc tiling to do is
to cut out the sore. The State Dispen
sary is the sore. It is the seat of the
disease. Once it is gone, the people of
Laurens County will be free and inde
pendent to vote for prohibition or for
the establishment of a county dispen
sary. The prohibitionists of Laurens
can beat the dispensary advocates of
Laurens easier than they can beat these
dispensary advocates backed by the
State dispensary, backed by the men
hired by the State Dispensary, backed
by the lawyers in the pay of the State
dispensary and the whole bunch backed
by the Richland Distilling Company, J
backed by large financial interests in
Columbia drawing great revenues from
the State Dispensary and the colossal
whiskey interest of the United States!
at the back of it all.
No, in Tuf. Advertiser's opinion,
the issue is between honesty and dis
honesty. We wish the State Dispensary j
abolished so that bribery shall no longer
be considered respectable in South
Carolina, so that defaulters may be
scorned of good men, so that the State
shall no more be degraded, so that a
man who steals from the State shall be
called a thief.
If you are a prohibitionist and vote
for the Stale dispensary, you vote that
the liquor men shall tie your hands.
Ansel and Jones are prohibitionists and
they are striking first at the throat of
the State dispensary because it is pro
hibition's worst enemy.
FOR LOCAL OPTION.
The Advertiser is for local option.
It believes that prohibition can be en
forced in Laurens County. It believes
that there is no hope for prohibition in
Laurens while the State Dispensary
lasts. With the State concern gone,
we can have prohibition. We have
reached the straight, unqualified con
clusion that prohibition is the best
thing for Laurens.
Therefore we pledge The Adver
TISEa, if the State Dispensary is abol
ished, to stand for prohibition against
county dispensaries, against bar-rooms,
against "tigers," against high license
and against any form, manner, method
or means of liquor selling that the de
vil can contrive for Laurens as long as
the people show a disposition to en
force it fairly well, as well as it is now
enforced in Spartanburg, Anderson,
Cherokee or any other county that has
expelled liquor under the Brice law or
as well as it is enforced in Marlboro
which has had prohibition nearly sixty
years. And more, Tin-: ADVERTISER
will stand for prohibition after its peo
ple vote for it no less than before; it
will summon ill its powers to create,
maintain and support sentiment in favor
of its vigorous enforcement and senti
ment that will cause the punishment of
those who violate; the prohibition law.
But the reasons arc commanding that
the honest men who want liquor sold in
Laurens sho ild vote against the State
Dispensary; because whether we have
liquor or not, we should not have graft.
If most of the honest men in Laurens
want dispensaries, let them vote for
dispensaries which they can run them
selves and let them step up to the rack,
fodder or no fodder, run an independent
county dispensary and accept the re
sponsibility for it!
Why vote for a so-called State dis
pensary which is the servant, tin; agent,
the criminal instrument of the liquor
interests of the Uniu 1 States chiefly
outside of South Carolina?
TILLMAN OPPOSES BLEASE.
Senator Tillman's speech at Sandy
Flat, Greenville County, Saturday, was
a repetition of his dispensary speeches
last summer. It was the ablest defence
possible; of the Raysor-Manning bill as
a dispensary purging measure but it
was equally a defence of the inde
pendent county dispensary if lea be
cause the same provisions of the bill
that would help the state dispensary
could be applied to the county system.
The fact that independent county dis
pensaries are running satisfactorily in
North Carolina and Georgia of course
knocks his objections to that system in
to a cocked hat.
Senator Tillman can no longer be
accused of "factionalism;" he is no
longer a "Tillmanite. " Without calling
names he aevercly denounced the op
ponents Of tho Kaysor-Manning bill in
the legislature and said they should be
"left at home." Senator Cole L.
Bl a;e, who opposed the Kaysor-Man
ning bill and still opposes :t, is there
fore included in the Senator's black
list, while Messrs. Sloan, McMa
han and Manning are not, though Mr.
Manning has always voted for tho
"damnable Brice law." Senator Till
man practically advises the people to
vote for either Sloan, Manning or Mc
Mahan and against Blease though
Blease alone has been a Reformer and
the othr r three have been "Antis."
Senator Tillman's speech as printed
wa.-i generally decent And free of dem
agogy and except in so far as it sup
ported the State dispensary contained
good advice. We agree with him that
Messrs. Manning, Sloan and McMahan
are better men to vote for than Mr.
Blease; however this is a matter of
preference and we are not falling out
with anybody who thinks more of Mr.
Hleasc. The platform of Mr. A. ('.
Jones of New berry is sound and the
platform of Mr. M. F. Ansel is also
sound enough to stand on.
THE FACTS IN THE CASE.
The esteemed Abbeville Press and
Banner, replying to TliK LAURENS Au
VERTISER, says that it knows nothing
about the Richland Distilling Company.
We do. We know that it is owned in
the main by whole-sale dealers in whis
key who live in Baltimore and other
cities outside of South Carolina and
that it sold to the State Dispensary
about one million dollars worth of liq
uor in about one year. The Richland
Distilling Company has more at stake
in the perpetuation of the State Dis
pensary than all other interests com
bined, except of course the banded
grafters who are its agents. Instead
of destroying the whiskey business, the
State Dispensary simply took it out of
the hands of natives and put it in the
hands of outside whiskey dealers.
The Press and Banner also says:
"Our recollection is that the blind
tigers, whiskey guztflers and bat room
men of Charleston v jtod for prohibition
years ago. We do not expect temper
ance reform or good whiskey laws from
any city which is dominated by bar
rooms and newspapers friendly to their
The Press and Banner had better not
trust to its recollection. The only time
I Charleston has ever voted directly on
tho prohibition question, in 1892, the
vote was overwhelmingly against pro
hibition. In 1898 Mr. Featherstone car
ried Charleston against Governor El
lerbe but less than half the vote of the
county was polled (less than 2,000.) At
that time, the Metropolitan police sys
tem was over the town and Charleston
would have voted against any governor
who permitted the existence of that
In 1900 there was no metropolitan
[ police and the race was between Mr.
I McSweeney, dispensary, and the late
Col. J. A. Hoyt, prohibitionist, and
also an anti-Tillmanite. Charleston
voted McSweeney, 3,174, Hoyt, t>7;? -or
at the rate of nearly live to one against
Furthermore, any rational and intelli
gent man in Charleston will tell the
Press and Banner that the county is
against prohibition now and in favor
of the dispensary as between the two.
Having innocently but wholly mis
stated the facts, let us see whether
the Press and Banner will set its read- j
ers straight by reprinting this.
MR. LYON S WORK.
The only possible ground upon which
the Raysor-Manning bill can he de
fended is tnat the dispensary is cor
rupt. If the dispensary is not corrupt,
the bill is not needed and no one friendly
I to the dispensary would venture to in
sist upon its passage.
If the dispensary is corrupt, how do
j we know it? Principally tlnough the
j efforts of Messrs. Lyon and Christensen
of the investigating committee. Every
body will admit that, we suppose.
If then the friends of the Raysor
; Manning bill who favor a reformed dis
pensary have anything whatever upon
'which they can "go before the coun
! try" it has been furnished by Messrs.
Lyon and Christensen.
If any man wishes sincerely to purge
and save the dispensary, has he not
' more to hope for in the way of assist
ance from Frazer Lyon as attorney
general than he has from any other
I lawyer in South Carolina? What other
lawyer so well understands the dispen
' sary's weak spots or has so fully shown
the courage necessary to deal with
It is clear that the services of Mr.
Lyon as attorney general would be es
pecially valuable to the administration
of any gentleman who may be elected
! Governor and who wishes thieves
lashed out of the dispensary.
BUT THE TAXES ARE CERTAIN.
The following from the Anderson
j Mail is respectfully referred to all who
may be interested:
"A little while since the people of
I several sections were trying to get new
counties organised in Georgia. Now it
I is said that the people of DeKalb county
I are so badly divided on the question of
road improvement that a movement is
on foot to partition the county between
the counties of Fulton, Rockdale and
Gwinotte and thus wipe DeKalb county
ofT the map. The people do not always
get the advantages promised from
smaller counties. Higher taxes usually
result, and without tho corresponding
Of course you'll hear things about
Frazer Lyon -there'll be no end to the
stories told about him. If you'll watch
you can trace most of them to source
which have figured in the exposures
which Lyon has caused. The Columbia
Record against Lyon? If Lyon had
brought out evidence that the adver
tiser had endeavored to induce men
engaged in stilling whiskey to tho State
Dispensary to take stock in The Ad
vertiser Company, we have no doubt
that The Advertiser would be loyal to
its friends and would declare war on
Lyon to the knife and the knife to the
hilt. Such was the evidence about The
Record, and we are passing no opinion
now upon the propriety of The Record's
conduct, but it is clear as day that The
Record is true to its whiskey friends
and against its friends' enemy.

free passes the full equivalent of Lump
kin's salary from the railroads ever

The Abbeville Posloffice Affair.
Much excited comment was aroused
all over the state when it was an
nounced that James Tolbert had been
appointed postmaster at Abbeville and
the appointment confirmed by the sen
ate, lion. I). Wyatt Aiken went on
tin- war path as soon as he heard of it.
Mr. Hitchcock, assistant postmaster
general, assured Senator Ponrose that
Mr. Aiken had withdrawn his objection
to Mr. Tolbert and on this understand
ing Senator Penrose, who was chairman
of the committee on postal appoint*
ments, presented his nomination for
confirmation. When told of Mr. Hitch
cock's statement Mr. Aiken said em
phatic things about the veracity of the
gentleman. Senator Penrose has agreed
to withhold the paper from those pre
sented for the president's signature,
so that Mr. Link will remain in charge
of the Abbeville postoffice unless the
president makes a recess appointment.
Captain Capers who controls Federal
appoint ments in this State was in
Grcenvill ? Saturday and was inter
viewed by a Greenville News reporter.
C.,;>t. Capers was asked about the
Abbevilie postoffice and the recent
nomination of Mr. Tolbert for that
place. In reply be said it was neither
James nor R. B. Tolbert, as published
in some of the papers, but their uncle,
Col. Thomas Tolbert, who was postmas
ter at Abbeville under President Harri
son for four years and who stands well
in the community and is highly respected
hy everyone. Col. Tolbert is a life-long
Republican, it is true, said Capt. Cap
ers, but that is one of the best reasons
in the world I think why he should be
postmaster in this Republican adminis
tration. As far as R. H. Tolbert is
concerned, he said, I believe him to be
a substantial and trustworthy citizen
himself and very much abused and mis
represented in the public press, but
both he and bis brother, Joseph, were
willing that their uncle should be ap
pointed as the principle involved would
be observed, and there could be no
earthly objection to the old gentleman's
appointment. Especially as his son,
James, an honor graduate of Krskine
graduate of Krskine College, in this
State, could be of great assistance in
managing tin; office to the satisfaction
of the public and rendering first-class
service to the government.

ACTION OF THE RAIN.
Tba Wonderful Paotor It In In the
Disintegration of Rock?.
The rain falling ou the rocks sinks
into every crack ami crevice, carrying
with It into these fissures surface mate

weather and thus affording a matrix
sufficient to start the growth of vege
tatiou and afterward to uinlutalu the
plants. The libers ami roots of these
piuuts, bushes ami trees thus brought
into life, growing and expanding, act
as wedges to split up the mirfuce of
tho rock and to commence the process
of wearing awuy. From this Quality
of destruction a largo class of plants
derive tho name of saxifrages, or rock
breakers, from their roots penetrating
Into tho minute fissures lu search of
water and so assisting lu the process
of disintegration. In winter the water
collected in the hollows and crevices
becomes frozen and, expanding us it
changes into ice, acts like a charge of
blasting materiul in breaking up the
rock. The pieces thus detached be

they are carried away down the moun

THE GARDEN OF EDEN.
Itn Location n Mxatery That Will
I'rohnhly Never Be SoWed.
The location of the earthly paradise
or garden of Edeu is still a matter of
dispute among orientalists and Scriptu
ral scholars of lischest reputation. Some
have endeavored to locate it by the
fruits and mineral productions named
iu tho ltlblical descriptions as tbey ap
pear In tho second chapter of Genesis;
others by the rivers mentioned lu
verses 11 to 14 of tho above mentioned
chapter. Tho weight of Investigation
and tradition Inclines to nn agreement
that the Tigris and the Euphrates of
modern geography are the third and
fourth rivers mentioned In the Biblical
description of the garden. Those who
agree so far differ widely as to what
rivers should now bo regarded as tho
ancient l'lson and Qihou. Tho Bud
dhistic scholars, although they reject
our Bible iu the greater part, ineline to
the opinion that the Pison is the sacred
Ganges, and that tho Glhon Is none
other than the Nile. As to the last, It
Is altogether probable that they are
correct ou that point, because tho Bibli
cal account plainly says that Glhon

Some Investigations confirm that
Eden was a spot of comparatively
! small area located ou Hie tablelands of
what, is now Armenia, from which rise
the Tigris and the Euphrates. A few
scholars of distinction argue that the
Adamlc paradise was located In Africa
In the vicinity of the mountains of the
Moon. Still another school of oriental
ists locate the celebrated garden In tho
vicinity of the ancient city of Babylon.
You will notice, however, that none
Of these theorists lias beeu able to get
the four rivers meiUioued In the Bib
lical account properly located. Neither
have they found a place where one
great river "separates into four beads."
This being the case, It. Is hardly neces
