T? All Sections of the State and
Trying to Bring Back Alleged Tigers.
Columbia, Special.-Some, time ago
requisitions were made by Governor
Ansel on the Governor of Georgia
for *everal negroes accused of the
violation of the dispensary law. It
is claimed that the negroes were
conducting a liquor business as blind
tigers, in violation of the dispensary
law, near Lowndesville, Abbeville
County, and Mr. I. H. McCalla un
dertook to put a stop to it. The ne
groes crossed over the line into Geor
gia. The negroes were apprehended
recently in Augusta. Attorney Gen
eral Lyon received a telephone mes
sage to the effect that Governor
Smith has temporarily suspended his
order granting the requisitions, upon
the representation of the attorney
fqr the negroes that they were being
brought back to Sonth Carolina to
be prosecuted for the violation of"
labor contract. Attorney General
Lyon had, the following to say about
the case: "Mr. I. H. McCalla, of
Lowndesville, is a thoroughly trust
worthy gentleman and has been mak
ing an effort for some time to break
np the blind tiger business in his
neighborhood. He is asking for ' the
return of these criminals solely for
the purpose of having them prosecut
ed for violation of the dispensary
law, and one of them for perjury,
as the requisitions show. There is no
truth in the statement that they are
to be brought back as peons.
