Mr. White presented the following
petition signed by 12S0 people: I
We. the undersigned citizens iirgo
that In the Interests or decency and
morality that the members of th
Houso or Senate of tho Terrlfnrv nt

.Mr, White reported for the Judiciary
Cnmmltteo recommending tho passago
of Senate bills 7. 17, 21 and 23. Tire re
port was adopted.
At this stage In the proceedings, Mr.
Russel presented his minority report
on the Dispensary bill of which ho Is1
the father. Tho report was very long
and together with It, was presented
statistics from the Board of Health and
a communication from Franklin II.
The Senator remarks In stnrtlng out
that the liquor question In Its various
aspects, under various system and con
ditions nnd In various countries has
been tho object of his Pfe-long studies
and that the Dispensary bill Is a result
ot these Btudles. , Ho dubs tho objec
tions presented In the majority report
and tho press as "haphazard assertions
devoid of any foundation nnd "duo tl
Ignnrnnco of the subject or misunder
standings that are not worth refuting."
Tho report challenges the majority
of the committee to show where and
how tho provisions of tho bill In any
way or manner, trespass on vested
It further states thnt tho bill opens
a wldo held fur the production of
liquors, vlnl-eullurcs, brewing, distil
ling nnd a largo number or now Indus

such as manufacturers of varnishes,
extnrtts nnd fruit preserving which

port states that the retail profits "here
tofore went Into the pockets of U half
dozen Individuals who made as much
ns 623 per cent on their Investment."
Under Act 42, all profits would be di
rected Into the public treasury. The
report intimates that the incomo to
the government could bo used for
"Men drink to execs." sns the re
port, "because they feel mlsetable and
they feel miserable because of the laik
of higher mental and spiritual Inter
ests. It lies with the reople to make
tho bill a temperance measure If they
see fit to do so. The bill Is advanced
only as a public health and public
"The state control, ' continues the
report, "of the manufacture and sain
of liquors has been for jcars adopted

The saloon peoplo assert them
selves ns 'state within the state,' dic
tating the state policy. Since tbero run-
uot be two managers In the samp con
cern, the questtpn of state control or
liquors Is merely a question or alterna
tive; whether It Is the state that will
own the saloon or whether the saloon
will own the state."
The report goes on to say that tho
dispensary sytem has been In good
running order In South Carolina for
eight jcars and It Is become so popular
that It has been extended to Nortb
At this point Mr. Russel gives a com
munication from Mr. Truxlcr. the first
commissioner nnd organizer of South
Carolina, and nnpthcr from the Stats
Dispensary Commissioner M. II. II,
Crum, of the samp State, both advocat
ing the passago of tho Dispensary Act
Mr. Russel proposes to amend his
own bill by Increasing the appropria
tion of $200,000, named in tho bill. t9
In conclusion, tho report says:
"The Important feature of the bill
Is that It does away with the prlvata
profits In liquor sales. In doing so,
It puts a stop upon every sort of pre.'
suro exerclstd by the dealer In ordcf
to make oue drink. No more soliciting,
drumming, forcing, no credit, no dice,
and gambling, no mutual treating, no
room for making drinking an enter
tainment, no free lunches, etc.. and,
at ,ho Bamc ,lme' " Infringement upon
'he liberties of anyone, since every-
boiI' can '"""y lrocur( every kind of
purc liquor In any quantity."
"Tho majority rpport of your com
mittee Is a rank piece of plagiarism
from tho report of the Canadian nnd
United States Liquor Dealers' Conven
tion held In New York in 1895, nnd
nm astonished to know- that your com
mlttco could permit tho said commis
sion's report to bo foisted upon them.
For nil these reasons the minority of
your commlttco appeals to the highest
patriotic tmd humane feelings of this
representative nody and heartily re
commends tho passago of tho bill as It
Is, with but a few small amendments."
Tho report was orJcred translated
