Gov. Heyward Acted in Accordance
Therewith and Communicated
With the Committee.
Phe State, 'the. 5.
GOv. Heyward yesterday received
from the office of the attorney gen
eral an. official opinion in answer
to the request of Gov. Heyward for
information.as to his jurisdiction.in
the matter of the conduct of Maj.
John Black, director of the State
Gov. Heyward was advised by Mr.
Youmans, the attorney general, that
some sworn statements .from the
committee will be necessary before
the governor 'can remove Maj. Black,
as he indicated in his letter to Mr.
Youmans that he wanted to do.
The committee apparently has
shown some inconsistency in serving
citation o Mr, Childs for contempt
whereas in the case of Maj. Black
they put the responsibility on. the
governor. The latter has stated posi
tively his convictions on the matter,
and it remains for the committee
now to carry its part of the red tape
outlined by Mr. Youmans, who yes
terday submitted the following opin
To His Excellency D. C. Heyward,
Governor of South Carolina.
Sir: After the most careful con
sideration of the matters submitted
to this office by your excellency, in
this connection, I am of opinion that
though there has been no denial by
'Mr. Black of the charges made
against him by the joint committee
appointed to investigate the affairs
of the State dispensary, yet as the
hearing had by Mr. Black was en
tirely of his own seeking and con
sisted simply of an argument by Mr.
Gruber, one of his council, I do not
think that you should proceed fur
ther until satisfactory sworni proof
is produced betore you thant his eonl
duct has been such as charged.
I, therefore, advise that you in
form tihe joIint 'ommilitte ap ilpoinlted
to investigate tihe affairs of thle
State dlispenlsary, thatt you require
from thiem before further act ion on1
your part, sufficient sworn proof of
the matter charged against Mr.
When this has been furnished, you
should issue a rule against him re
