Editor of The Aoflooiaa:
For sometime, Mr. Editor, I
have not taxed your patience by
an open letter from me. It is the
proper thing, I believe, during
this summer weather, to keep
cool physically and mentally. Since
I am feeling very comfortable in
these two detiartments of my be
ing this evening my thoughts in
their excursions have gone fre
quently to old Anson, to the peo
ple to whom the ties of my affec
tion are strongly bound.
Naturally my thoughts center
with in tease interest on the con
test now being waged between the
people who want temperance and
righteousness to prevail and those
who want the saloon and wicked
ness to dictate in politics and to
establish the moral standard for
the county. Once more the lines
are to be drawn and the people of
Anson are going to show to the
whole state what kind of moral
sentiments rule in their lives. The
question at issue with you is not
of local interest alone. On every
hand I hear the question asked,
"What are the people of Anson
going to do? "Are they going
to stand for the saloons and be
come sponsors for the evils grow
ing out of them, or are they going
to record on the ages of history
to be written on the 31st day of
August that they stand for the
safety and happiness ofjtheir
homes, for political honesty and
for the principles of the Christ
whom most of them profess to
oljey f "How are they going to
vote?" ' IJoozc or no booze?
Hug juice, or no bug juice?"
"For whiskey really for medicine.
or for whiskey to breed vice and
crime in the 3'oung and to soak in
iierjury, drunkenness, mfarny or
murder the old? Which?
The lines arc going to be tightly
drawn. The people of Anson are
going to weigh themselves in the
balances. Will they be found
wanting? 1 hope not.
In 18S2 a state election for pro
hibition was held. It soon became
evident that there was no hoie of
carrying the election for temper
ance. In some townships not half
a dozen votes were cast for prohi
bition. Yet I have not found a
man who voted for temiierance at
that election that wis not proud
of that act. They deem it a mark
of honor. So do their fellow men
and rightly too.
If your countrymen will lay
down prejudice and will be honest
with themselves and will refuse to
be Iwught, many hundreds of them
will also be proud that they help
ed to redeem their county and to
clothe it in the pure white of tem
lerance against drunkenness.
As soon as an election is order
ed on tenierance a certain class
of men begin to talk louder for
prohibition. I)o they mean it?
Not a bit of it. They want some
Ixxly to buy them. Thej' want
the other side to hear them. Some
times within less than a week that
very class of men is cursing every
temperance sentiment and are the
loudest for the saloons. Their
price has been paid.
lour issue is clear cut now.
There is no hiding place for the
hyixjcrite. Those who believe m
temperance and think whiskey as
a medicine is a good thing will
vote your ticket with a good will
Every true temperance man can
vote your ticket with a good heart.
Every man who is on the Lord's
side will vote to put his county
one step forward at least. The
law will not be ierfect, but it will
oiien the door of hope and oppor
tunitv to a noble people. The
time is at hand. It the people
for once show to the world that
right principles prevail in their
There are a half dozen men in
Wadesboro who have joined them
selves to the sitle of the saloons.
If they were to withdraw their in
fluence and money from the assis
tance of the saloon men in the
coming election prohibition would
overwhelmingly prevail. They
give respectability to the saloon
issue. The saloon men get down
ou their knees to them and beg
their supiort. In return they
pledge whatever business advan
tage in town or county affairs or
in ixditics that may be desired
which the saloons may control.
Then the tight begins. These half
dozen men shut their eyes to every
signal of danger to their country
men. They shut their ears to ev
ery apal from their neighbors
to yield to better influences. Day
and night they work heart and
soul for the saloon. What kind
of votes must we get? It makes
no difference, any, just so it will
count, is the slogan; just as it was
in the last election in Wadesboro.
These are the leaders and their
puppets gladly do their bidding.
Thus the battle is won by men
who do not care a flip for saloons
themselves only in so far as they
can advance their personal ambi
tions. You know who they are.
The people of Anson county know
well who they are. And yet
through their pleasing personali
ties and business obligations they
manage to ward off the just pun
ishment by the people that such
If you are defeated in the com
ing election these men will do it.
Without them the saloon men would
get only a corporal-guard follow-,
ing. They themselves would be
ashamed of it

No cause for good is gaining
more headway in the South than
the temperence movement, and
with every defeat met by the liq
uor element, the friends of tem
perence, who stand everywhere
for happy homes and good govern
ment, are encouraged and strength
ened to more vigorous and enthu
siastic work. It is a significant
fact that especially in the South-
ern states or America are ine
temperance forces doing the best
work. A bill passed in Georgia
last week forbids the manufacture
and sale of intoxicants in that
state after Jan. 1st and in Virgin
ia, North Carolina, South Carolina
Tennessee, Kentucky, Arkansas
and Texas, the sale of whiskey is
prohibited in more than seventy
five per cent, of the counties of
those states, on a general average
of the counties of the several states.
