The next day, however, the Japanese
were driven out by an artillery tire,

The Japanese engage in bombard

.Mukden, Oct. 9.-The sound of a
heavy cannonade is distinctly audible
from the center o?tbe Russian advance.
The Chinese persistently declare
that only a few Japanese remain at
Mukden, Oct. 10.-At last the corres
pondents are permitted to telegraph

We have waited a long time for this
moment-the turning point in the cain
Saign. The advance actually begun
ctober 5, and the preparations were
enveloped in the greatest secrecy.
Last night a correspondent of the As
sociated Press telegraphed the first
news tbat the forward march had bo
inia auspiciously for the Russians, the
Japanese having lust a moat important
fortified position, Bentsiaputze, the
key of the Bensihu road and the ford
of the Tai tee river, and having exposed
their right flank.
This morning came the news that the
Japnneaewere being driven back along

Russian victory will only be Certain
when the Russians re-enter Liao Yang.
It ii necessary to study the Japanese
dispositions, telegraphed The Asso

preciate General Kuropatkin's task.
The Jnpaoese armies are prepared to
meet the Russians and the advance of
the latter is expected to develop
quickly. The decisive moment of the
campaign is close at hand.
A Business of $3 OGO.OOO.
Columbia, S. C., October 9.-The
St&te dispensary business is expected
to aggregate three millions of dollars
this year. This will be the largest
business that the institution has ever
done in a single year.
It is not expected that the protlts to
the State will be proportionately in
creased. This is occasioned first by
the heavy sales of what is known as
"old stock," at reduced prices. The
position has been taken that the coun
ties have not been responsible for the
"old stock" and for the purchase of
unsalable stock and brando, and on
that account if there are to L?e losses
in profita such losses' ought to be
chargeable to the State rather than to
the cities and counties which had noth
ing to do with the purchase of the
Then the State constabulary has cost
the State more than heretofore, but as
against this it is stated that there is a
better enforcement of the dispensary
law because there are more men to
watch for violations and the better
enforcement of the law has brought
about the larger sales of liquor through
the dispensaries in the various coun
There are likely to be two innova
tions suggested and pressed before the
State Board. First it is likely that the
State Board will be asked to buy less
case goods and do more of its bottling.
Of course, so as to cater to the taBteB
of certain of the customers of the dis
pensary, it is realized that certain well
known standard brands of case goods
should be kept in stock, bnt with the
dispensary having a monopoly of the
business, there is no occasion for the
dispensary to introduce and push cer
tain new brands of case goods when
the State can bottle its own goods and
make the margin of profit that is gen
erally credited to be in case goods as
against bulk goods. If the State buys
its liquor in bulk it can pat np its own
bottled goods and make the profits for
the State instead of lofting it go to the
dealer, who gets ont the newfangled
Then it is to be proposed that the
State Board buy from the lowest re
sponsible bidder and let the samples
show the grade of liquor. At present
the State Board fixes a minimum price
at which it will purchase or consider
certain grades of liqnor. This, it is
contended, is purely arbitrary and
while it may be for the bost intel eats of
the stomachs of the buyers it is not
according to the letter of tho law,
which does not contemplate that the
State Board should fix any minimum
price, bat that the State Board should
consider the grades of liquor offered,
have it examined and keep a watch on
it and buy from the lowest responsible
By working off its old stock the
Sresent State Board has gotten the
nances of the dispensary into better
shape.-Speoial to News and Courier.
