Bill Passed to a Third Reading
in the House.
Under the Bill Charleston Can Issue
Liquor Licenses and the Other
Counties la the State Would
Have to Accept Prohibi
tion or Establish Dis
The Morgan local option bill, which
abolishes the State dispensary and
creates crunty dispensaries or prohi
bition, according to now each county
votes, except in Charleston, where
they can issue liquor licenses, estab
lisa dispensaries or adopt prohibition
passed Its second readirg in tfce
House of Representatives tin Tuesday
of last week ?by the same vote it
passed its first, reading week before
last. The bill passed its third read
ing on Wednesday and was sent to
the Senate. Should it pass that body
and receive the governor's approval it
will bhCjme a law at once, unless it is
attacked in the courts, which is prob
able, as some good lawyers hold that
the provision in the bill giviDg Char
leston tbe right to issue licenses
makes the bill unconstitutional.
There were efforts made to kill the
bill, then to amend it, but Mr. Sand
ers, who was the flaor mansger, kept
the bill intact, and Mr. Wbaley, to
gether with the other members of
the Charleston delegation, kept the
Charleston license clause intact, al
though there was a fierce onslaught
on the license clause. It was expected
that there should be a fight on the
bill going tbr.- ugh. Col. D. ?. Her
bert, of Orangeburg, took up the
fight, agalpst tbe bill. He stated
plainly that he was opposed to Char
leston having high license and then
went on to sympathize with Charles
ton wanting something different from
the other counties. Col. Herbert con
tended that this was wrong in princi
ple as well as unconstitutional. He
protested against the passage of this
biU. It has been stated that under
this bill as it now stands general pro
hibition can be had. This 1b a mis
take. If the Prohibitionists believe
this, they are being deluded. Tola
bill, this thing of threads and pavcs.es.
will not secure prohibition. U.:der
this bill Counties having dispensaries
will have to pay 10 jper cent to the
State, whereas Charleston, having
high license, will be exempted from
paying anything to the State. Col.
Herbert said this, matter of county
dispensaries won't do. It won't do at
all. He insisted that it was,all wrong.
Every dispensary in operation to-day
under this bill became a county dis
pensary. Simply changing the name
did no good. He voted fcr prohibi
tion because he thought anything
better than tbe Morgan bill. This
Morgan bill would bring a lot of fes
tering sores all over the State.
Capt. Hamel said this was not the
experience of Georgia and North Caro
Col. Herbert said tbe bill was abso
lutely without restrictions. Tbe coun
ty boards could buy at any old price,
any old liquor, and pledge tbe credit
of the county without limitation. If
this bill be pawed the State simply
multiplies by 35 or 40 times the op
portunities for stealing. The people
rid not seem to appreciate the seri
c usness of county dispensaries. The
committee bill regulates the purchase j
cf liquor. In this bill there are no
restrictions of the county board. The
t ill, he thought, was directly in con
flict with the Constitution. He urged
that the Constitution was written in
the disjunctive, and never contem
plated county adoption. There is no
local option in the Constitution, and
he did not think there bad ever been
any argument against county adop
Capt. Hamel said the county dis
pensaries were simply the lesser of
the evils, and the county dispensaries
would certainly get rid of the State j
Mr. Otts pointed out that the credit
of tbe counties could only be used for
the first purchase, and only the first.
Col Herbert insisted that the coun
ty dispensaries were unconstitutional,
and cculd not be legalized.
Mr. Hemphill took a turn at Col.
Herbert, and showed him some of the
wagon ways in the diBpensary bill.
Mr. Hamel said that If the dispen
sary r.dvt cares had gone with the
Prohibitionists tbe license question
would Dever have benn an issue. He i
related how the Prohibitionists in the
Constitutional Convention aided the
dispensary advocates, and made it
possible to hava a license system. The
Prohibitionists in that Convention
fought against licenses, and the d!s
pensary advocates forced the license
system into the Constitution. The
rrohibitlonlsts were simply trying to
get the best tbey could and that wag
wbv tbey favored the Morgan bill.
Mr. Sanders then took the floor and
argued that there was nothing in the
world in Col. Herbert's position. He
said there was nothing in the objec
tions made, and that Charleston
would have to pay its same propor
tion to the State. The Constitution
was absolutely plain that county d Is
pen8aries were legal. The Constitu
tion even permits municipal control,
and it plainly provides t?l county
The debate was warm and The
State says Col. Herbert "rorsted" tbe
bill severely and made a number of
thoughtful points against it.
Mr. Pollock, who was opposed to
the bill, wanted to speak, but Mr.
Sanders, who had the bill In charge,
applied the gag law by calling the
previous question. Mr. Pollock insis
ted on his right to be heard but friends
f the bill did not want to have it
further debated, and insisted on the
pre- icua question being called. Mr.
Pollock was in no mood to have the
gag law applied to him without a
fiiiht, and so he demanded a yea and
nay vote on tbe call for the previous
question, which resulted in a vote ci
60 to 46, and the previous question
was ordered, which cut t fl all further
debate. The /dispensary advocates
voted for continuing the debate, and
the advocates of the bill voted to shut
(ff further debate. Several amend
ments were cffered an 1 voted down,
and the bill was ordered to a vote
with the following result:
The following voted to establish

At Boston on Wednesday morning
a woman and four children were found
dead in bed at their home. An inves
tigation by tbe police indicate that
the woman, Mrs. Annie L. Dixon,
bad killed tbe children and herself by
opening three gas jets. Tho children
were Annie, aged 5 years; George,
three and a half; Mildred two years
and Marion, one year. The tragedy
was discovered by tbe woman's hus
band, Arthur B. Dlxon, when he re
turned borne from work this evenljg.
Dixon found the house locked and
was obliged to break in tbe frone
door. He found tbe bodies of his
wife and children in a bedroom.
M?dical Examiner A. A. MacDonald
decided that Mrs. Dixon had killed
the children and herself. Dlxon told
tbe police that he left home at 6
o'clock this morning to go to hin
work. At that time his wife was up,
the children were all awake and he
did not notice anything unusual.
Dlxon is 31 years old and his wife was
27. Tbey bad been married for about
Bix years. Of late Mrs. Dlxon bad
