NG THE DISPENSARY OUT
erry, Spartanburg, Colleton and
Others to Hold Elections.
s and Courier.
lumbia, June 20.-Three other
ties, in which the movement to
the out dispensaries, is taking
nite shape, having been definitely
rd from as to the progress of the
rk that is being done. Yesterday
orts were prii:ed from a number
counties indicating the situation
t this particular time. The three fol
owing notes will be of interest as in
dicating the general movement that
is now in progress:
The correspondent from Newberry
"In reply to your inquiry as to the
proposed election of dispensary, I
"The dates for the election will
have to be fixed by the supervisor;
but the petitions will be presented to
him on the 24th, and it is expected
that the election will take place about
the last of July or the first of August.
"The movement is getting on splen
didly. Already more than a thousand
signatures have been presented, and
the work of the committee is not
nearly done-at the end of the week
it is confidently expected there will
be more than fifteen hundred signa
tures. The registered vote of the
county is about three thousand. Very
few persons decline to sign the pe
tition. As to the names of the mosi
active workers-the list would be toc
long, but the following may be m:n
tioned: G. F. Long, R. T. C. Hunter
Jno. C. Neel, A. C. Jones, Burr Stock
man, J. B. Fellers, W. I. Herbert, D
0. Wilson, J. T. Thornton, J. Wm
Smith, W. H. Sanders.
"The prospects now are that th<
county will go against the dispensar3
by an overwhelming vote."

The Spartanburg situation is re
ported to be as follows:

titions wvill be sent out to the pre

they are right before they go ahead
So you may see that the day of elec
-tion is in the future.
Count on Colleton!
From Colleton comes this state
-ment of the situation:
We have not exactly decided *o
-what date we .will hold the electioi
~respecting the dispensary, or no di's
-pensary, but presume that it will b<
held some time in July at a time whea
it wuIl be most convenient for the peo
pie in the rural district to attend th<
election. The petitions are being cir
culated in the county, and, judgini
from the common reports. we are o
the opinion that we have the require<
number of signatures at this time.
Capt. H. D. Padgett and J. G. Pad
gett were the orignators of the ide
in this county, and are pushing th
petitions for all they are worth.
think it is a safe estimate to say tha
there is not one .man in ten, who doe
not speak in favor of moving the dis
pensaries from the county, and offer
ing their services in the fight for th<
removal of this gigantic fraud. I be
lieve that when the election is held
the votes will go five to one, in favo:
of removing the dispensaries.
A call has been issued in Andersoi
for a public meeting to be held on th,
3rd day of July for the purpose of or
ganizing the prohibition fcrces of th<
county, looking to holding an electio,
on voting out the dispensary.
