PAMOUS DISPEISARY CASE.
Chief Justice Pope Hears Argument in One
Phase of Lake City and Scranton Dis
Messrs. W. L. Bass. of Lake
City, and Shipp. attorneys. repre
senting certain parties in Williams
burg county. appeared before Chief
justice Y. J. Pope. at chambers
here. on Saturday morning. in the
fanious Lake City amr Scranton
,dispensaries case. asking for a stay
of the operation of the dispensaries
at Lake City and Scranton until
the case has been decided by the
supreme court. .Nir. \\. F. Clay
ton. of the Florence b ar, as repre
sented by .le-srs. J. Y. Culbrcath
and 1. ',!!. Hunt. tf the Newerry
bar. who( appearcd for the board
of control. Quite an interesting ar
gumnlnt of about two hours was
inade upon the question at issue,
the sole question being whether the
dispensaries shall be allowed to
sell whisker until the case is decid
ed by the supreme court. Chief
Juntice Pope reserved his decision.
which in all probability will be filed
in a very few days.
The case 'is interesting and has
been hard fought. 'About eighteen
months* ago the board of control
gave notice that it would establish
ed dispensaries in Williamsburg
county. It seems that the law re
quires that twenty days' notice of
such intention be published and
-provides that if a majority of the
citizens present a petition within
twenty days after the publication
of said notice the board shall not
establish the dispensaries.
It appears that the citizens in
volved in this case attacked the
constitutionality of the dispensary
law, the case being carried before
Judge Dantzler and an appeal be
ing taken to the supreme court.
The supreme court held the act to
be constitutional. Pending the liti
gation the board of control sus
pended the establishment of the dis
pensaries in question. This year,
acting under their former inten
tion, the board of control establish
ed the dispensaries at Lake City
and at Scranton. Citizens. i,clud
ing Morris and others, filed a com
plaint against the board of control.
alleging inter alia. that a majority
.of citizens opposed the dispensaries.
'The tase went before Judge Purdy.
at chambers, the complaint asking
for a perpetual injunction and that
an order be issued suspending the
operations of the dispensaries un
til the case was heard on its mer
its. J.udge Purdy held that under
the showing made the plaintiffs
were- not entitled to the injunction
and the plaintiffs gave notice of ap
peal and appeared on Saturday be
fore Chief Justice Y. J. Pope ask
ing for a stay of operations of the
dibpensaries until the case is heard
in the supreme court. As stated.
the arguments were heard and the
