SPARrANBURG GRAND JURY.
-Presents A Number of Persons For
Violation Dispensary and Other
Spartanburg,S . C., November 4.
Tlhe grand jury this afternoon sprung
a great sensation by making a special
presentment, in which it charges cer
tain' county dispensary officials with
receiving and giving bribes, - viola
ting -their oaths and other offences.
The present county board of control
and former boards come in for a
share of attention by the grand jury.
The paper caused a tremendous sen
sation and is almost the sole topic
of conversation here tonight. It makes
the first step toward criminal prose
cution, taken against those connec
ted with the management of the dis
pensary in the state, as it will likely
be followed 'by like indictments in
other counties where the dispensary
has been shown to be crooked by the
legislative examining committee.
Those who are presented will, of
course, employ attorneys and -a strong
defense will be made. The devel
opmers will form interesting court
proceedings in this state for many
The following paragraphs are the
most sensational features of the pre
"We find that the county board 'of
control has wilfully neglected to per
form its duty as required by law, and
to protect the county from irrespon
sible dispensers, nor have they show
ed desire or willingness to correct
-abuses in the management of the
various dispensaries, after thie same
had been brought to their attention,
-as it was, their sworn duty to do.
We therefore present the said board
for a failure to p~erform its duty as
required by law, and the oath taken
~by the individual members. Jt'is a
matter of public notoriety that the
chairman of t1he board refused to call
a meeting at thie request of B. G.
Landrum, a member thereof, for"the
purpose of considering the conduct
of the dispensers, and we present
liessrs. W. N. .Avant and Z. H. Lan
ford for official mniscon.duct and a vio
lation of their oaths of office, and
name B. G. Landrum as a witness."
Other officials indicted are: C. 0.
Smith, chairman of county board of
'control, bribery and attempt to bribe,
accepting bribes and presents from
whiskey dealers, mis.conduct and vio
Taf ion of oath; W. N. Avant, mis
conduct and violation of oath: H. T:
Ferguson, county dispenser, accept
ing presents from whiskey dealers
and violation of oath: J. W. Harmon,
county dispenser, changing .labels;
J. P. Ilhackston, offering bribe to C.
0. Smith and maintaining a public
nuisance; L. Reibling, -maintaining
nuisance and selling liquors in viola
tioni of dispensary 1.aw; J. W. Huse
man, offering bribe 'to C. 0. Smith
and maintaining nuisance by selling
- liquors contrary to dispensary law.
In each indictment the names of wiI
nesses are given.
The presentment concludes by rec
ommending that the legislature, in se
lecting dispensers, give more atten
tion to 'the integrity and honesty of
applicants and ask that expert ac
countants be secured to examine the
books of all county officers.
The Christmas number of the New
Idea Woman's Magazine contains:two
pages of Christmas recitations which
girls and boys fated to distinguish
themselves at Christmas school en
tertainments -will welcome. Severaf
full-page drawings s'how happy and
familiar phases of Christmas Day, one
by Miss Maud Tousey, "Dot Recites
at the Christmas Party," being espec
ially at-tractive. One of the short
stories in the number is entitled "Her
Silver Spoons," and gives very hu
morously the woman's point of view
on a man's gifts. Christmas gifts and
Christmas cookery figure largely in
the magazine, but there are in addi
tion several very readable articles on
more general topics. Miss E. H. West
wood wriies on "Woman's Salvation
Through -the Trade-Unions." Miss
Harript Martin on "The Possibilities
of Stenography," 'and Miss Mary
Eastwood Knevels on "The Founda
tion of '6he Home Library," adding a
list of standard works desirable for
a home library. Four pages are de
voted to views of the beautiful spots
of tie world. such as the Scottish
Ben Nevis and the Swiss Matterhorn.
An article on "Frocks for Christmas
Parties" will be helpful to -the mo'th
ers of small -girls, and a page on smart
ties and handkerchiefs for men will
be suggestive to sisters, mothers and
wives who find it difficult to decide
What to get for the men.
"THE HOLY GRAIL."
The Latest Book of President J. A. B.
Scherer About to Issue from the
A new volume of Dr. J. A. B.
Scherer's writings is-'announced by
,the Lippincott company as about to
issue from their presses. This -will
make the fourth book of Dr. Soberer's
published in recent years, 'the preced
ing volumes being, in .the order of
their publication: "Four Princes,"
"Japan Today" and "You-ng Japan."
The new book i-s a collection of ad
dresses delivered by Dr. Scherer on
various occasions and is published
under the title of 'Illhe Holy Grail."
Among the addresses.thus preserved
in permanent form are several deliv
ered in Charleston, where D-r. Scherer
lived and ministere.d for several years
and made friends and compelled ad
mirers. One of the col-lection is the
discri'min.atin.g appreciation of Henry
Timirod, the Carolina poet, an address
delivered un.der the auspices ~ of the
Medical college of South Carolina,
and another is "Liberty and Law," a
very striking .address made, we be
lieve, at one of the annual dinners of
the New England society. It is very
gratifying to know that Dr. Scherer
has preserved in book form tlhese ad
dresses whi-ch made such deep impres
-ion upon those 'who were fortunate
enougih to hear them and 'hgs made
thus for himself a -wider au.dience.
