!:'; u'on:. him and the dispensary,
and he was going to see if there was
any way to stop it or have the proof
produced. He says that he asked his
counsel. Mr. WNilliam Elliott. Jr., to
bring both criminal and civil action
against the New Sentinel, of Barn
well, and its editor, G. Marshall
Moore, anid he is going to press the
case or have the proper explanations
Some tinie ago this article appear
ed in the Barnwell Sentinel, and it is
presumably on this that Chairman
Evans wishes his attorney to bring
a suit or have full retraction made.
Said the Sentinel:
"Is Evans to rule South Carolina
with a salary of $4oo, when
many a poor devil with $600'
6r $7o0 has to scratch for
hungry mouths. Ye economists,
if ye will, tell us how a man can give
box parties, keep daughters at col
ege and( be drawn around the streets
of Rock H-ill in a coach and pair on
the pi:iful sum of $400 p)er annum.
There is something rotten in the
state of South Carolina. and it reeks
from Col ombia to Barn well."
Mr. Evans says that if the editor
had inquired in Newberry he would
have learned that there is money to
e made in successful farming. and
that he was holding cotton and corn,
as good farmers are doing.
HeI saidl he had a bundle of letters
from friends and others asking him
to run for governor, but he had not
decided to do so. but had the magter
uner cons'ideration. His family did
nm wish him to enter the race alid he
was afraid of the expense.
The suggestion is made that there
is considlerable pressure being
brought to have the board revoke or
practically nullify the recent 1ecision
to bottle here the cheaper grade of
case goodIs. The board has decided
tha it will not buy case goods. ex
cept a few high grade brands-say
half a dlozen. The pressure is to
have the board revoke the order or
igore it and leave the resolution on
the record. The board announces
that the resolution was adopted to
stick and must hold, and that the or
der will be executed in spirit and re
ality, and no dollar liquor will here
after be bought cased, but will be
ttled in bulk.
