Greenville lawyer Buys $t?o Worth
of Liquors for $5.
Greenville, May ll.-Tho first
elash between tho United States
$ Court and State officials over the re
cent decision of Federal Judge TI. A.
M. Smith, that the government has
a right to sell at public auction lu a
"dry" county whiskey that has been
seized and condemned as contraband,
occurred here to-day. In compli
ance with the order of Judge Smith
at the April term of tho Federal
g Court, J. Duncan Adams, United
States marshal, advertised for sale at
public auction at Greenvillo Court
House, at noon, two packages con
taining Intoxicating liquors, the
the "Hundred Thousand Club;"
^ Several days ago Governor Dlcase
addressed letters to tho'sheriffs of
Soui'h Carolina and to one of the
magistrates in Greenville advising
them to arrest any party who might
purchase contraband whiskey sold in
tho State by United States officials,
Sheriff Poole and Magistrate Strad
ley received copies of the letter and
f forthwith primed themselves for the
~ clash.
Prepared for Sale.
This morning Deputy Marshal J.
Duncan Adams appeared in Green
ville and prepared for the auction.
Shortly before noon the two barrels
of whiskey were transported from
tho police station to the front of the
til county Court House, having been
confiscated last October by Police
Chief Uolcombo and the United
States revenue officers because the
barrels bore no markings to indicate
their contents, which is a violation
of the Federal laws.
Dr. J. L. Dean was employed as
auctioneer by tho marshal, and at
tho stroke of 12 he called for bids f
for thc first package of whiskey. Ho
~ was interrupted by the stentorian
voice of Magistrate Stradley, warn
ing the crowd that Governor Blosse
had ordered any purchaser of hover
ago to be arrested. The call for a
bid was repeated and there came an
offer of ?3 from Oscar K. Mauldin,
_ son of Senator W. L. Mauldin. The
* auctioneer took np tho cry, "Turee
dollars, three dollars!" There were
no more offers and tho hammer fell.
Bids for the second barrel of whis
key were called for and Mr. Mauldin
made an offer of $2.
Again rang out the voice of the
auctioneer, but no one made a higher
4 bid. 'Pite hammer fell, and to tho
purchaser went $ino worth of cham
pagne, Benedictino and imported
Scotch whiskey for $."?. Sheriff Poole
seized the two barrels of whiskey and
approached the purchaser and placed
him under arrest, while his depullos
bore them Into tho court house.
Later the attorney gave bond of $200
4f and stated that he would bring ac
tion, through tho "claim .'ind deliv
ery process," for the recovery of the
liquor.
A large crowd had gathered, prin
cipally out of curiosity, to witness the
sale of tho beverage.

GREEN VOUCHER ALSO HELO Ul?
Comptroller General Demands Item
ized Accounts from Detective.
Columbia, May ll.-Comptroller
General A. VV. Jones has held up the
voucher for somo $100 drawn for
Leon M. Green, one of the Governor's
detectives, out of his law enforce
ment fund, on tho ground that tho
law calls for the accounts to be item
ized and dated, and this, the Comp
troller General alleges, was not done
by Mr. Green. This is similar to the
warrant drawn In favor of Rev. C.
W. Creighton, also one of the Gover
nor's detectives, on the same fund,
I and which was held up by the Comp
y1-%lfi&' Cbniptroll?t' GeneraTiT "office
slated that two warrants, aggregat
ing some $412, drawn in favor of
Leon M. Green, on the Governor's
law enforcement fund, each ono of
the warrants for some $200, were
held up because tho accounts wore
not itemized and because they were
not dated properly; that the first
was sent back to the bank and that
ii. was returned by Mr. Green, with
probable dates of his work for which
the account was rendered, but as the
law required exact dates and item
ized accounts, the warrants were
again turned back to the bank by
the Comptroller General's office.
The Comptroller General slated
stated that during Governor Ansel's
administration detectives employed
similar to Green and Creighton al
ways rendered itemized accounts and
pi ope r dales, and he exhibited one
to prove lils statement. This is what
he is contending for when he refused
payment to the warrants in favor of
Creighton and Green, drawn on the
Governor's law enforcement fund.
One such warrant for Rev. Creigh
ton, as a detective was paid, but it
was through Mr. Holmes's misun
derstanding of the orders of Comp
troller General Jones, who has Issued
instructions that, none be paid until
Itemized accounts and proper dates
aro on all of them.
Green and Creighton wore ap
pointed by tho Governor as special
detectives to assist In tho enforce
ment of laws, and it was in an inter
view given out in Newberry that this
matter was made known by tho Gov
ernor, although it. had been generally
understood in some quarters before.
KL EA S IO APPOINTMENTS INVALID
Supreme Court Hands Down Decision
in birst of Several ('ases.
Columbia, May 1.4.-The State Su
premo Court, in a decision handed
down to-day, ousted Governor
Hlease's appointees as township com
missioners in Beaufort county, ruled
them guilty of usurpation and ille
gally holding office, and ordering
them to surrender. The defendants
are not lined, but are assessed Gie
costs in the cases.
This is the first of the quo war
rante proceedings to oust the ap
pointees of the Governor in many
parts of the State and is considered
nil index of what the results will be
in all of the other cases.
The opinion was from a unani
mous court, and is considered a vic
tory for Attorney General Lyon, who
instituted the cases.
The court rules that tho Blease
appointees were not legal Incum
bents of office for Hie fact, that they
were appointed without the approval
of the county delegation.
Tho case is slinila" to the Green
wood rural police caso and the de
cision ls based on that case.
lt is considered a slap at the Gov
ernor's acts of making appointments
of followers contrary to tho legis
lature's wishes. The Attorney Cene
ral demurred from the return of the
defendants in tho case and his de
murrer ls sustained.
There were four cases against the
township commissioners, bul all were
tried together.

Mrs. draco diable to Raise Bond?
Atlanta, May 14.--The continued
failure of Mrs. Daisy (?race to make
bond, though she is known to be pit
ifully anxious to leave her cell In the
Tower, has inevitably given rise to
the conclusion that she ls without
financial resources and that the tales
about her fortune In Philadelphia
were exaggerated.
The unhappy woman has been a
prisoner in close confinement for
several months, and since Hie com
ing of spring especially site has found
her Imprisonment a veritable tor
ture. Her desire to walk about In
Hie sunshine and see the green trees
and Howers is said by the jail offi
cials to be one of the saddest and
most touching things they have ever
known.
Before the grand jury indictment
it was given out by her lawyer that
she did not make bond because she
chose voluntarily to remain in the
Tower, in the idea that her impris
onment would force the grand Jury
lo act without delay.
When the grand jury returned Hs
Indictment and Judge Roan fixed the
new bond at $0,000, it was under
stood that the bond would immedi
ately bo made, and that Mrs. Crace
would be released the same day.
"Mrs. Grace lo bo Free." is tho way
(he local newspapers headed their
account. But Mrs. Crace is still a
prisoner. Bond has not been made,
and now new explanations are being
offered by her friends. One ls, that
ibero is an old Blue Law In Penn
sylvania which prevents a wife from
disposing of her property without the
consent of hoi' husband. Other ex
planations have also been made. But
tho prevailing popular impression
here, right, or wrong, is that. Mrs.
Crace remains a prisoner simply be
cause she cannot raise the $5,000
necessary for her bond.
The Atlanta papers this morning
state that Eugene Crace was able to
sit up in his room yesterday, and that
ho is regaining his Strength.
