FACTS AND FIWIJttKS ON THE A IK EN COUNTY
DISPENSARIES, SHOW1NU FALLACY
OF "PROFIT" ARGUMENT.
The Economics oi (he Dispensary.
To tho ISditor of The News and Cou
rier: Tho magnitude and importance of
tho work done by the Aikcn county dis
pensaries will i>esoon from tho follow
ing summary (?I* the monthly statements
of the Aikcn county dispensary board,
made under oath for the quarter ending
June 30, 1008:
Month. Invoice Cost. Sides.
April.$ 37,835.2'! $ 28.011.Ml
cpiurter...$110,000.9-1 $ 00,223.87
For year.$4 12,427.70 $201,895.48
Subtracting tho Block on hand, $18,
002.95, from tho invoice cos! of tho
goods, liiere remains $72,003.99 to he
accounted for. Hut adding tho break
age and expenses to the sales WO have
only $72,03.915, leaving an apparent de
ficit of $2O,09O.O-l, Which can doubt 1<
bo easily explained by the dispensary
In order to have a clear conception of
the meaning of these llguros they may
ho compared with other expenditures of
government. It is n conservative as
sumption to take tho i|unri'T of the
year under consideration as a fair sam
ple of tho year's operations. It i the
busiest season of the farmers' year,
with less money on hand for necessa
ries, not to speak of luxuries. Thedis
p try board seem to havo experienced
this, for in tho June report it is an
nounced thai prices were reduced in
two of the dispensaries.
The cost of operation, including wages
to clerk:;, Rftlcsmon, bottlers, breakage
etc., should amount for the year to $23,
500.32, n little sbort of the $25,000, for
many years the salary of the president
of the United States, and also of the
county expenditures of Aikon, esti
mated for l'.iiix at $20,435. The cost of
the goods is more than three times
as mticlt nH tho aggregate of all
taxes. State and local, collected ill
tho county, thai llguro for 1907 be
ing giVOIl m $127,170. The sales, with
the expenses for operation lukletl in,
sliouki reach $288,465, and to meet them
would require the proceeds of 5,769
bales of cotton at $50 a hale, out <>f an
average county crop of 23,000 bales.
The hoard reports the profits for the
quarter as being $11,310.77, at the rate
of $57,242.19 for the year. Of this sum
$19,080.08 goes to the dispensary towns;
$19,980.08 to swell thc3-inill tax for the
Expenses. Breakage Price..
$ 1,400.02 $ 255.15 $ 9,809.70
2,003.-10 134.90 16,891.77
1,299.95 129.70 18,002.95

'?? nelil of the people at large in requital
<.f ih.' $442,427.70 furnished by them to
conduct the industry. One other bone
llciary <d" the dispensary remains to be
mentioned. Tho federal Government

from tho county, in internal revenue
und la vi IV taxes on the purchaser of the
goods, 'IT percent, of it going to sup

!i is doubtful whether the six dispen
saries of Aiken county are promoting
temperance more than the gn at pro
hibition wave thai has swept over this
and most other counties during recent1
years. The saloon has boon banished
from more than half of the national
domain through local option and pro
hibition enactments. The liquor traffic
iias been w holly prohibited in six States
and extensively cut short in thirty-four
othms. In 1870 there were only 3,500,
000 persons living in dry territory; in
1900 the number was 18,350,000; in 1997
il was 33,000,000. However, tho fed
eral reports show that in 188<l the con
sumption of liquoi'S per head of tho
population was I2.| gallons, while in
1900 the consumption had risen to 22.27
gallons a bead. For the vear ending
.June 30, 1907, Ihoro was 11,499,252 gal
lons of whiskey more consumed than in
the preceding vear.
