failure in large sections.
SOUTH CAROLINA'S EXPERI
MENT. There has been no end of fun
poked at South Carolina for the
Jiind she is taking villi the liquor
question by goiing into the busi
ness, and the temperance people
condemn iu unmeasured terms the
idea of a state setting up whisky
shops. It must be confessed that
the experiment is a novelty and a
marked departure from all ideas
heretofore advanced on the sub
ject. But, as an experiment, it
iiiy be worth trying, though we
contesB we have not much faith in
it as a satisfactory solution of the
problem thnt has been controling
us for generations. It is an exer
cise by the state for its authority
for regulating the liquor traffic in
another direction than absolute
prohibition of sale, the plan of
must1 who have enlisted them
ielevea to the warfare against its
aianifoll evils. Prohibition, does
not always and necessarly prqjpibit
its failure being largely dueo the
idiosyncrancies and personal frail
ties of those charged with enforce
ment of the laws And the senti
ment of the several communities
under their jurisdiction. Un
doubtedly the same reasons will
largely contribute to the success
or failure of the South Carolina
experiment. Meantime", itsi: out
come will be watched with 'inter
est. It is not improbable that
grrnie valuable data may be en
olred from It. The famous his
trionic ramark from the governor
of South Carolina is more than

The banks continue to fail all
over the country. The people
have lost confidence and they are
drawing nut their deposits. This
is the only cause that cau be assigned.
The proposed midwinter fair in
California, would help Oregon, and
thousands of people would visit
our state either on their way to
California or on their return. The
Northwest should encourage the
project as much as possible.

What have these dignified pawn

light have they to pass judgment

llave they ever done anything

They are not built that way. They
