WE IIAVK A DISPJEXSKK.
ISut 'i'lu-re is <ti)l Some Doubt About Our !
Having a Dispensary.
The Hoard of Control held its iir<t
important business meeting1 here Sat
urday, and the business transacted
was of a rature very interesting to
both friends and enenfes of the disriniiMrv
After carefully considering the applications
of the live candidates for
tho position of dispenser, and having
of course taken into consideration the
qualifications, etc., of the applicants,
the Hoard decided to appoint Mr.
M. II. Mobley. Mr. \\\ M. Harden
was made clerk. The salaries of these
officers were fixed at SDOO and sOOO,
Having concluded this portion of
their worl . tlie Board proceeded to
choose a i': '.tion for the "bar". Several
rucaui store-rooms were visited
anil examined. The one located just
north of A. Williford & Co.'s siere
was selected. >Ve presume that work
will at once be commenced and the
place fitted up to receive the stock of
Palmetto "Ihijj juice'7 which will be ,
ordered at once.
The action of the Hoard was nothing
of a surprise; it was fully anticipated
by everybody. Xow, the sequel is
anxiously awaited. J. K. McDonald,
?sq., who is conducting the legal light
against the opening of a dispensary, ,
was asked Monday what course lie ,
intended to pursue. He said that he (
was at present unable to slate just ,
exactly what the plan of campaign
would be, "but," he added, 4,we .vill
coine to a definite conclusion in a day |
or two. probably tomorrow. (Tucs- I
AVe have mentioned so often the f
ground upon which the anti-dispensary |
people are going to make their light '
that it is almost uiincres?ary to repeat j
Their principal argument though <
will most probably be in favor of the :
right ef a signer ?f a petition to with- '
draw his name before action i< taken j
on the petitions. I,
There is scarcely any doubt that the I
dispensary will be opened and opera- 1
tions commenced as it will not be .
possible for the opposition, even if \
they gain their point, to courlude all 1
the legal formalities in time to preve.it tke
"opening of business."

Solicitor Hongh Notified of the Violation
of the Dispensary Act.
In our last issue we made mention
of the fact that a Richmond linn had 1
shipped to a gentleman in Winnsboro
a case of <;01d Bourbon whiskey, and 1
that 110 action in regard to this appar- 1
ent violation of the Evan's law had 1
been taken by Tillman's spies or any ^
other officer of the law. Since the
publication of that article, however, (
the matter has assumed a different
aspect, and ihc Richmond and Dan- 1
villc Railroad will have another added '
to the li<t of cases by which the va- ;
lidity of the law, as far as it applies to
the road as a common carrier, will be 1
Section 21 of the Evans act imposes 1
upon the Sheriff of each County the !
duty of reporting to the Solicitor of
the circuit the violation o: any provision
of the act that come? under his ;
Acting under this authority, Sheriff i
Ellison formally notified Solicitor
Hough on Thursday, of the shipment (
and the receipt of the whiskey, fur- i
nishing at the same time the names of
a number of witnesses. That is the
writ- flirt ctnm?? nf urMMit. I
There is 110 doubt that Solicitor Ilough
will at once take steps to have the ia:lroad
brought into Court to answer for
the alleged open disregard of the law.
Here is the section which authorized
Sheriff Ellison to proceed as he did:
Sec. 24. It shall be the duty of the
Sheriffs, Deputy Sheriffs and Constables
having notice of the violation of .
any of the provisions of tins Act to
notify the Circuit Solicitor of the fact
of such violation, and to furnish him
the names of any witness within their
knowledge by whom such violation
can be proven. If any such officer
shall wilfnlh* fail to comnlv with the
provision? of this Section, lie shall,
upon conviction, be lined in a sum not
le?s than one hundred dollars w>r more
than live hundred dollars, and such
conviction shall be a forfeiture of the
office held by such person; and the
Court before whom such conviction is
had shall, in addition to the imposition
of the fine aforesaid, order and adjudge
the forfeiture of his said ofiios.

The reader of this paper will be
plea>cd to learn that there is at least
one dreaded disease that science has
been able to cure in all its stages, and
that is Catarrh. J Fall's Catarrh Cure
is the only positive (lire known to the
medical fraternity. Catarrh being a
constitutional disease, requires a constitutional
treatment. Hall's ( atarrh
Cure is taken internally, acting directly
on the blood and mucous surfaces
of the system, thereby destroying
the foundation of the disease, and
giving the patient strength by building
up the constitution and assisting
nature in doing its work. The proprietors
have so much faith in its curative
powers, that they offer One Hundred
Dollars fur any case that it fails
: to cure. Send for list of testimonials.

The children here are very much excited

and as it is to be a tar/cry party, each !

It is the custom of the merchants here i
to allow their clerks a week's furlough j
during the summer season, and as J
most of the clerks are members of the |
team, and will be absent for some
time to come, it is doubtful whether
the game will be played at all. Kidgewav

springs. The majority, we understand,
will go to Cleveland Springs.

pleasant time, but if we were of the
number, we wauld much prefer the
sulubrieus climate of the sky land.
We think Buncombe possesses the
finest climate in the country,especially
during the summer season. While the
water across the French Broad, four
miles from Ashville is not so strong1
as the water at Cleveland, the fine
climate laakes up for the water, gives
Buncombe the advantage.

the free coinage of both gold and silver
without any discrimination in

of the Sherman Act; and whereas,

of Fairlield do protest against the repeal
of the Sherman Act, unless accompanied
with the free and unlimited
coinage of silver at the ratio of l(i to 1.

in Congress be and are hereby

for the free coinage of silver, and to

Sherman Act. unless free coinage be
at the same time granted.

and in sufficient volume to meet the
necessities of an ever increasing population
and a consequently large annual
increase of productions.

Whereas, The present system controlling

as a failure arc not to be attributed
to any motive of benefit to
the masses but simply arise from a
hope to injure the present State government
in the minds of the people
who have placed the reform movement

Dispensary law should have a fair
trial, ana oe i<cpc in operation 101- at
least two years,, t? decide thoroughly
upon its merits, and we request Gorernor
Tillman to take such steps in the
way of calling an extra legislative
session or recommending, if necessary,
a constitutional convention, as will
prevent the courts from rendering the
law a nullity during that period."
Also the following resolutions:

4. In holding dealers or manufacturers
