I.AURRNS, S. C, JUNK 24, 1908.
Referring to the News and Courier's
suggestion that a debate as to which
city, Laurens, Greenwood or Newberry,
had the best mayor would be interest
ing, the Creonwood Journal says:
"No debate is necessary, contempo
rary. Greenwood's mayor sneaks for
himself. He is the best ever!"
Yes, he may be the best Greenwood
ever bad, but even that does not prove
him equal to the mayorof Laurens; and
the fact that he "speaks for himself"
is far from convincing. Come again,
contemporary; you failed to make out
your case.
A Northern merchant has discharged
one of his shop girls because she was
too pretty. That assures us he was a
married man and his wife was ugly as

"I travel all over the State and Lau
rens is doing more right now in the line
of progress and permanent improve
ment than any other town or city in
South Carolina," remarked a traveling
man, well known and highly respected
here, just a few days ago.
Now, if ever, is the time for every
citizen to join hands with his fellow
citizen for the upbuilding of our city.
The work has begun and we want to
keep it up. To accomplish this a con-1
certcd effort is necessary "in union
there h strength." All for a GREATER
The King's Daughters are engaged in
a noble work just now; a hospital is a
blessing to any city. Just last week a
physician said to us: "I have a patient
right now who must be taken to a hos
pital and I wish there were one here.
I should much prefer bringing my pa
tients here than taking them out of the
county." We see the need; the King's
Daughters are endeavoring to meet
that need. They deserve the sympathy
and substantial support of all our peo
What the people in South Carolina
are saying about Laurens is unquestion
ably true. She is right in line with all
that is progressive and up-to-date. Just
a visit bereis convincing; the people go
away talking.
Voters of Laurens: An issue affect
ing every man, woman and child within
the bounds of our county, the progress,
the moral and mental growth, and the
future prosperity of her people, will be
placed before you this fall. What are
you going to do about it?
Laurens has excellent hotel facilities.
A traveling man made this remark a
few days ago: "Your city is equal in
that line to the best of its size in the
State and far better than many larger
places." This is a good advertisement
for a city ; drummers talk and they love
to praise good hotels.
If our recollection errs not, Senator
Tillman showed a decided preference in
the gubernatorial campaign of 100(5 for
a gentleman of the Pee Dec section of
the State.
That iK)litics is unclean and unfit for
participation by "gentlemen" seems to
be quite a universal conclusion. Note
the Charlotte Observer on this:
"We have about concluded that poli
tics as ordinarily conducted in some
States is an occupation entirely unfit
for a gentleman.
The only remedy, as we have always
contended, is for "gentlemen" to get
bu?y and doa little work of purification.

Dispensary Auditor West says that
the prohibition sentiment is on the wane
in this State. Such a declaration is to
be expected from Mr. West in view of
the class of people he has dealt with,
officially, during the two years past.
And besides, there would he no Dis
pensary Auditor West if South Caro
Una should vote prohibition.
It is a source of gratification to us
that interest in the coming political
campaign is growing each day; this
with special reference to the race for
the Legislature. From various parts
of the county come reports that indi
cate an unusual concern in this impor
tant matter. Just here we would em
phasize the fact that in electing our
law-makers it is not for Laurons county
alone, but for the entire State of South
Let us urge that in this approaching
election we choose wisely and judicious
ly, mindful of tho importance of the
ollice and the necessity for strong, pure
men. The platform of the various can
didates is well to consider, but not all.
Platforms without men will do us but
little service. Issues are of importance
but not so much so as men. Fleeting
an issue without a man to support it is
poor judgment.
The need in South Carolina today is
the election of MEN; we have bad
enough of the other .>ort; men who can
comprehend the significance of move
ments; who can see ahead of the pres
ent day; who can legislate for a whole
State and her people, and who are
above suspicion in all their public acts.
In a neighboring county is reported
the candidacy of a man who car.;,
write his name. This alone does m t
condemn him, for he may be a man <.?:
good, hard horste sense, yet it is a p
commentary at the very beginn:: .
Intellect and integrity are what we
need in the General Assembly of South
Carolina. What will Laurens county
do about contributing her share*?
If there be one thing in which I
rens stands in greater need than any
other one thing it is a new passenger
station. Some days ago while or. I ? >ard
an incoming train we heard this re
mark: "My! what a gloomy, ugly little
station." This is the general impres
sion upon travelers and new-comers:
we at home have been accustomed to it
and are unimpressed. Our present sta
tion is not a good advertisement for the
city; it gives the wrong impression; it
is not apace with the standard of other
Now, the railroads arc building new
and commodious stations all over the
country. Why not in Laurens? We
arc satisfied that with a strong petition,
especially from the Chamber of Com
merce, that the railroads will regard
the matter favorably. They are al
ways willing to regard the people's
wishes. How about it, citizens? And
might not this matter be discussed at
the meeting of the Chamber of Com
merce this week?
The candidacy of the Hon. R. Good
wyn Rhett for senatorial honors has
been well received over the State. Mr.
Rhett is recognized as one of the best
business men in South Carolina and a
man of high culture, intellectual ability
and moral integrity. He will make a
good race. _
The removal of the dispensary in
Laurens would greatly curtail whiskey
drinking in Newberry, Greenwood,
Greenville and Spartanburg counties as
well as here in our o.vn county. We
people of Laurens are furnishing the
means for intemperance not merely to
our own people but to our neighbors
also. _
Under tho above caption the Clinton
Chronicle of last week prints the fol
lowing piece of news:
"On a recent visit to Goldville Mr. S.
W. Low, of Laurens, Unding something
wrong in that burg, went to work im
mediately, got up his evidence and
swore out tho warrants for nine trans
gressors of ourState and county laws.
On last Friday he, with the assistance
of Mr. C. L. Owens and Mr. R. R.
Milam, went down again and brought
them back and lodged them in prison.
Four of those are indicted for selling
liquor, four for taking part in a general
'not' and shooting scrape which oc
curred last weok, and one for assault
and battery. Goldville will be well rep
resented in the next term of count."
This is reproduced here and attention
is directed thereto for the sole purpose?
of showing that all our laws, even tho
statutes regulat ing the sale of whiskey,
are sometimes violated. Several news
papers of the State, and especially the
Abbeville Medium, are very fond of
citing instances of the violation of law
in the prohibition counties and using ii
as an argument against prohibition,
j The fallacy and unsoundncss of such a
contention is demonstrated by the above
reported facts.
All laws are sometimes violated, else
I there would be no necessity for law.
Heeause a law is occasionally broken is
no proof that it is not a good law. This
applies univorsally; the la?vs against
theft, murder are good; they are
sometimes broken. The dispensary law
is violated; that alone does not prove it
a bad law. People break the prohibi
tion law; that does not mean that it is
not a good law.
The argument is unsound and cannot
stand the lest.
A dream: wo see a fine court house
located on a corner lot near the public
square of Laurens; In the center of the
square a magnificent monument to our
noble Confederate dead stands an ever
lasting memorial to their valor and to
our faithfulness to the legacy left by
The Clinton Gazette appears now in
a new form; much neater mechanically
and with a greater amount of news.
We congratulate Editor Dendy.
"Newberry has the best preachers
and tin; best churches of any town in
the State," say our highly esteemed
contemporary, the Observer. Exactly
what we expected a clear surrender in
that argument about mayors.
The dearth of candidates for the Leg
islature is now a matter of comment
and much concern all over the Slate.
In casting about for a reason explain
ing the condition the Greenwood Index |
"The reason is not hard to find. It
requires the sacrifice of so much time
to make a campaign and to serve for!
even t wo sessions that few men feel j
that they can afford to undertake it."
The sacrifice of the necessary time is
indeed a deterrent force; but the loss in
actual money is as much a reason. A
business man whose time is worth
money can ill afford to spend forty days ,
away from his business on the salary i
now paid our law-makers. The remedy
as we see it is to increase the per diem '
to a sufficiently large figure to induce
the candidacy of men whose services;
are worth something* J

Prohibition In Union.
"Only one homicide in this county
this year ?the one at Buffalo. Some
jurymen have been doing their duty,"
were words used by Solicitor Sease in
a speech before a jury in this week's
court. Let it also be remembered that
we have had no dispensary in Union
county and this has contributed to the
smallness of the numbe of homicides.
Whiskey is at the bottom of three
fourths of the homicides. The destruc
tion of the whisky traffic means the re
duction of the number of homicides.
And the jug trade is rapidly decreasing.
We have noted this fact from day to
day. The jugs are getting fewer in
number. Prohibition does not abso
lutely prohibit, but it helps greatly.?
Union Times.
If one feels dull and spiritless, in the
spring or early summer, they call it
''Spring Fevor." But there is no fe
ver usually. It is the after effect of
our winter habits. The nerves are
mostly at fault. Tired, worn-out nerves
leave us languid, lifeless, aud without
spirit or ambition. A few doses of Dr.
Snoop's Restorative will absolutely and
quickly change all of these depressing
symptoms. The Restorative, 01 course,
won i bring you back to full health in a
day or two, but it will do enough in 48
hours to satisfy you that the remedy is
reaching that "tired spot." Druggists
OVOrywhero are advising its use as a
splendid anil prompt general tonic. It
gives more vim and more spirit to the
spoonful than any other known nerve
or constitutional tonic. It sharpens a
failing appetite, aids digestion, frees
sluggish livers and kidneys, and brings
new life, strength and ambition. Test
it a few days and be convinced. Pal

Badly Sprained Ankle Cured.
Three years ago our daughter sprained
her ankle and had been suffering terri
bly for two days and nights had not
slept a minute. Mr. Stalling.1;, of Mut
ler, Tonn., told us of Chamberlain's
Pain {'.aim. We went ?o the store that
night and got a bottle of it and bathed
her ankle two or three times and she
went, to sleep and had a good night 's
rest. The next morning she was much
better and in a short time could walk
around and had no more trouble with
her ankle. E. M. BftUMITT. Handelt,
