Da a long discance. telephone ccn

Columbia Record man, whom he call
ed up, Ms jor Wylie denied the allega
tion that he bad msde such state

man to quote him as strcngly in de

would permit. Major Wylle's state

"Mr. Wylie, of the state roard of
dispensary directors, was on the C. &
N. W. train Wednesday morning, go
lng toward Gastonia; and between
Yorkvllle and Clo*?r he said In the
presence of Dr. J. E. Massev and Mr.
F. P. McCain, who were going to Clo
ver with the county oampalgn party,
that the state dispensary has always
been corrupt and it is as corrupt as It
has ever been. He said, that the state
board is corrupt; but be is only one
man against two and cannot help him
belf. He cited that recently, over his
protest, the other two members of the
board has purchased two thousand
cases of so-called case whiskey. Upon
the arrival of the whiskey he, Wylie,
Insisted on having it analyzed. The
analysis showed 2* per cent, of alcohol
and the balance was various kinds of
chemicals. As a result of the analy
sis, and Mr. Wylle's threatening to
make a fuss, the 1'quor was sent back.
Dr. Massey and Mr. McCain both re
peated Mr. Wylle's statement to them
in their speeohes at Clover."
In commenting on the Enqurier's
article the Columbia State said: "The
above statement is confirmed by a
special to The State from Yorkvllle,
which gives the same report of Di
rector Wylle's conversation with
Messrs. Massey and McCain. The
State endeavored Wednesday to ob
tain statements concerning the matter
from Mr. Wvlle and Messrs Massey
and McCain. It was found that Mr.
Wylie, whose home is In It ohburg,
Chester county, is at Cleveland
Springs, N. C. A telegram was sent
to him there asking him for a titate
mcnt by telegraph. No reply was re
ceived, it boing pcBSlble th?.& Mr.
Wylie was unable to reply Thursday
night. Messrs. Massey and McCain
were bcsh away irom home Wednes
day in attendance upon the York
county campaign meeting at some
point in the county and neither of
them could be reached Wednesday."
