ten;^' County Auditor ? Gibbes ol
Richland, alohg the same lines. Al
?"rfecent conferece with the attorney
general nud Commissioner Tatum ii
was decided to place the responsibil
ity-on the county boards and the
letter written hy the governor to the
State board explains his idea as to
the law. Ik is .as follows:
Hon. J. M. Rawlinson, Chairmac
State Board of Directors, Colon
bia, S. Cv
Dear Sir. Your recent cammum
cation, through Mr. M. H. Mobley.
clerk, enclosing copy of resolutiout
adopted at a meeting of the Std\(>
board of directors, held March 6th;
1906, in regard to the use of requesl
books, has been received. With this
communication came also a copy oi
a letter from Mr. W. S. James, mern
hereof the county board of control
-i.:.u 1innn jj,,
does not care to have, request books
used because it would make, as they
think, the. dispensary ^aw unpopu
lar ia that county.
I wish it (plainly understood that
I am ready at all times to see that
those officers under my jurisdiction,
who have any duties in connectiois
with the dispensary^ fully discharge
The first step, it occurs to me, ii
for the county boards to see that the
law with reference to request booki
is enforced by the dispensers them
selves, and if in the discharge of thu
duty it is found that officers undei
my jurisdiction refuse to do theil
duty then it is time for nie to tal?
I wish to assure your board of JUJ
purpose to operate with you at al:
times, and if' for any reason requesl
books should not be generally us?e
it will not bc through any lack of co
operation on my part. And I will b(
very glad if you will at any time cali
my attention to any specific direclic
tion on the part of any officers ap
pointed by mc.
I am advised by tbe comptrollei
general that the county auditors oi
account of the large volume of busi
ness where the use of request boob
is enforced will not have time tc
theck up thc books and give sufi
fine to their other duties, in eonnec
on with the tax department, as the]
should. The primary duty of ai
auditor ' is in connection with thi
tax department and I am satisfied
that in the interest of the enforce
menjkof law and business economs
that arrangements can and should bc
made by whoch the county auditor;
can get such assistance through ike
county boards as will make it pos
sible to have a through system o:
checking up. Should this assistance
to auditors be furnished by thc
county boards the expense will bc
slight and will be equally borne b;
both county and town, as it shoulc
The law is plain with reference t<
thc use of request blanks. I full;
sympathize with your board in its ef
forts to enforce this law wheneves
a'eounty auditor refuses to carry ou*
the law when assistance is furnishec"
him, ,'or when it is shown that he i
able to perform the work without as
sisitance, that I will promptly remove
him from office upon the same beiuj
reported to me.

IT AUGUSTA, GA.
State Senator Cele L. Bloa.se States
His Position, as a Candidate Foi
Governor, on the Dispensary and
N?tfber?yj Spceiith-State Sena
tor Cole L. Bieune was seen and
' his attention was called to the re
p?rfsj? published in the newspapers
throughout the State to the effect that
he would' be in the next gubernator
ial campaign. ' Mr, Blease was asked
lc inake a definite" statement iu, re
gard to his candidacy, . He was asked
the direct question, "Will you be a
candidate for Governor this'' sum
"Yes, sir; I am ill thc race," he
saith, "I have been for some time and
expect to be in until the finish.7'
'.'It appears that probably the lead
ing issue in the coming campaign will
be the liquor question; what is your
position on the dispensary ?" was
asked Mr. Blease.
"1 tiiitik it very unfortunate that
cur people should lia*e reached the
point where dealing with the whiskey
problem is to be the paramount issue
of the State campaign," he replied;
"especially at this this time when
matters commercial and industrial.
There are rhdrjy things which the peo
ple should Corisider in electing their
officers besides this one, However,
in 1892 I voted foi- the dispensary and
I h?ve ?t?eri from that time and am
now in favor of thc dispensary sys
tem; That is: I am in farer of the
repeal ?f fclt? Brice ??vr? I nm in fa
vor of the dispensary' system for the
handling of the whiskey question, as
I believe it to be the best solution.
I think it too large a question to D'S"
made a local issue. It is a State is
sue, and 'should be decided by the
whole people of thc State in a pri
mary eleetioih I have always appos
ed SubiditHrig it in a general elec
tion, because (hat w'Utlld allow a class
of people to vole who should iiot be
permitted to settle question between
the white Democrats.
"Are you in favor of the State
"I amy because I believe it is the
best way to manage thc business. If,
as some charge, it is corrupt, how
much more room would there be for
corruption if there Were 41 purchas
ing powers instead of one. In other
words, ? atti hi favor of the State dis
pensary management add the repeal
of the Brice law."
Mr. Blease was asked what he
would do with the counties which
have already voted out thc dispen
sary under thc Brice law.
"If the people of the Stale vote in
favor of State management and the'
repeal of thc Brice law," was his re
ply, the General Assembly Would then
pass such laws as would_pei;mit_Jhe_
dispensaries would be re-established
therein. In 1902, when I was a cau
diadte for Lieutenant Governor, 1
told the p?o pi ti rill over" the State
that the whiskey question Wan not set
tled, although some candidates pro
claimed from the stump in loud tones
that it had been settled and that the
people were satisfied. I knew ther
that it was not tine and that the cam
paign then being managed in the form
that it was was only to blind the dis
pensary people. It has come out as 1
predicted. The fight had then just
begun. The dispensary people were
sleeping. The combination against it
of all its enemies was lying dormant
for the purpose of striking it its
death blow. Just as I thought thc
? thing'has turned out, and there are
now people claiming to^be for the dis
pensary who are hoping to get office
i.pon it, and at heart would mash th^
life out of it if it were in their pow
"Are there any other matters
which would like to mention"?"
was asked Senator Blease.
"Yes, sir;" he replied. "I ara in
favor of biennial sessions of the Gen
eral Assembly. I ara in favor' of
law prohibiting children under
vears of age from working in cott
