THE DISPENSARY SCANDALS.
The Committee Divided into Sub
Committees, One of which has been
Working Hard, and the T ublic
has Learned Something of its
Work in a General Way.
:News and Courier.
Columbia. June 25.-The dispensary
-investigating committee is apparently
quietly plodding along. Some months
- ago the general committee was sub
divided into special committees.
From what can be seen and heard the
sub-committee, of which Messrs Fra
ser Lyon and Neils Christensen. Jr..
are members, have been up and doing
and this special sub-committee will
- most likely have things to report.
The other members of the committee
are Messrs J. T. Hay, Cole L. Blease,
Arthur L. Gaston, Thos. B. Frasier
.and Col. D. A. Spivey They may be
doing something, but the general
-public has not heard near so much
::about their activity. They may be
<gaged in other lines of inqui-y-the
'State board, the purchases, the hand
ling of the liquor in bulk, the early
'history of the system or the like,
-which would not bring about such
publicity as dealing with the sub
To Find Fraud You Must Hunt It.
Of course it is not now, nor has ii
:ever been expected, that information
-would be handed to any of the com
- nittees on a silver pallet. but if the
committees want information-if
there is any to be derived-it has to
" be dug for. This seems to be the
plan of the sub-committee, consisting
of Messrs Christensen and Lyon,
- which is charged with the examina
tion of the ups and downs of the sub
dispensaries of the State.
It is understood that t'his committee
"has visited various parts of the State
and that it has derived considerable
interesting information. The commit
tee, for instance, spent considerable
-time in Charleston, Spartanburg and
Rumors About Spartanburg.
It is rumored that there were two
sessions in Spartanburg and that
there was some real lively testimony
heard in that city. "
The talk around Columbia is, but
-it may be mere rumor. tfha it was
found that c-le - -ne dispensary of
. *icia]y ,j ated as special -agent to
scollect a fund with which to fight
.the anti-dispensary movement in that
-.county. It is rumored here that the
:sub-committee has the list of con
~-tributors to tehe fund, and that on the
list are the names of dispensary offi
* cis, liquor houses and others. But
.the strangest part of the whole story,
.if -the rumor be true, is how the
amoney was expended. and on this
phaae the sub-committee. it is also

Mysterious Little Book.
It is also suggested that the sub
committee is on the track of a little
book. which will give some light on
how much it costs to do a "tigering"
business in Charleston in former days.
This little book, it is said, will have a
tendency to open up some previous
history in that community. The sub
committee is naturally averse to let
ting anything get out in connection
with its work, as the desire is to re
serve all infbrmation for the General
Assembly; therefore all that leaks
now is more or less incomplete.
Has There Been Big Stealing?
What people are now looking for is
what investigation is to be made as
to the "big things" about .th.e busi
ness, and not the transactions of the
dollars and cents, butof thethousands,
or to have the prevailing rumors set
at rest by positive statements once
and for all time, or to get down to
business and see what is in these ru

the system, the investigating com
mittee and every one else ought to in
sist upon, and no petty inquiry ought
