WAR ON THE DISPENSARY.
Advocates of the System Worried and
Show I:-Tillman Has Not Yet
C l.mbat. S. C.. June 25.-The dis
pin?aryv -ituam. n i- rap;div becoming
m)re acute. events are tocusing tor a
final conclusicn in the fight that has
been joined to vote the dispensary
out of so great a number of counties
as to leave the State machine without
support. and developments of the next
30 days will be of the most interest
ing and important nature.
Petitions calling for an election
under the Brice act to vote out tVhe
dispensary are now circulating in over
half the counties of the state remain
ing ":et" and the dispeisary people
are worried and plainly show it. Sen
ator Tillman's friends have been pre
licting that he might soon be found
=tumping the state for prohibition,
)ut far he has pre.erved an enter

eclare himself in his F'ou rth of July

- ret3her of the sub-committee

In th-: meantime the dispensary
p)eople are evidencing a dletermination
to yield not an inch of ground, without
a fight compelling them to yieldl. The
dispensary advocates are not only or
ganizing in all cuunties where elec
tion petitions are in circulation with a
view to sustainig the dispensary in
the elections, buat they are making an
even bolder move by seeking to break
the only weapon, the Brice act, by
which the anti-dispensary people can
succeed. They may be tempting fate
by employing technicalities to defeat
the will of the great majority in the
Pickens election, buz they are not hes
itating. This election is not only to
be protested on the ground that it was
irregular because the petition con
tained many names not entitled to be
on it, but tfhe Brice act itself is to be
attacked on the ground'that it is un
constitutional. The hearing before
Chief Justice Pope on the 5th of July,
when the State board will be required
to show cause why it should not re
