SC dispensary (jan 13, 1893 – jul 29, 1907)

Description:

In 1892 South Carolina adopted the dispensary system, which gave the state a monopoly on the sale of liquor. In the early 1890s South Carolina was poised to adopt statewide prohibition. Governor Benjamin Tillman, however, pressured the legislature to pass instead his proposal for state liquor monopoly legislation. Basing his idea on European models, Tillman portrayed the dispensary as a compromise between the private sale of liquor and prohibition that would promote temperance and clean up politics.
