MR L. W. PARKER. TESTIFIS. t
His Testimony All Hearsay-Was a
Put Under Arres He Refused ti
At FIrs h
Columbia, June 6.--The dispensary v
committee is getting down to mar
row these days. To-day was a record- tl
'Mr. Lewis W. Parker declined to e
repeat what he remarked as private n
conversation with Mr. Samuel J. v
Lanahan, the senior member of the
firm' of Lanphan & Son, of Balti- it
more. In less than six hours the Su- d
preme Court decided that Mr. Par- I
ker must answer the questions. The p
story of this notable tilt is told else- o
where, and how Mr. Parker exhaust- f<
ed every honorable means to keep
from repeating what he regarded as
a purely personal statement. The r
Supreme Court heard the arguments, t<
and, without leaving the bench, w
Justices Pope, Jones and Wood re- T
fused the writ and held the evidence ti
competent. Then Mr. Parker went e<
before the committee and related the N
conversations he had with Mr. Sam- ti
liel .J. Lanalan. Mr. Parker, as tl
everyone knows. is a careful man, al
and is at the head of millions of 1)
dollars of invested capital in his vari- 1
ous cot ton mills, and his whole course G
and purpose apparently was to be ol
cautious and conservative. m11
Mr. Lanahan is at the head of one m
of the largest and best known liquor li
houses in America. He. too, is a can- fi
tious business man, and has made his ti
millions. Mr. Lanalan has sold the H1
dispensary more liquor in the aggre- P;
gate than perhaps any other one ol
Therefore it is to be appreciated
that the conversations about which tI
evidence was forced, were between
two entirely reliable and prudent
Mr. Lanahan to Mr. Parker. L
Now what did Mr. Lanahan say to ir
Mr. Parker? d
He saiid that he was convinced ti
that it took more than the merit of; bi
the liquors to d-- business with the w
State dispensary. He said that the ai
dispensary bought cheap, mean li
quor. He said that it cost money to
do business with the board in 1904'e
and 1905, and he could not afford to o
pay what had to be paid. a
He told Mr. Parker enouigh to itl
make him say that the conversations ai
implied that rebates were paid to S
get orders. o
He told Mr. Parker that " At the a
last letting of contracts. which had i
just passed. there was in it for the
members of the board of control not s
less than .5.000. Later on Mr. Par- a
ker explained that Mr. Lanahan si
said that the re'-uilation rebate ap- q
peared to he $5, a barrel on orders. n
and lie was not a competitor with his tl
od, 'n t hat basis.
MIr. Lanllaan is qjuotedl as lhaving n

Mr. Parker declined to give the

commit tee, by a vote of 4 to 3. (de

Some suggested lhe wvas a member of

thought this representative w.as paid 1
$2,000, hut had never learned wheth- s
er sutch a representative had evert
got tenm orders or not for Lanahian & 6
Had Arranged With Mr. Boykin.
Mr. Laniahan is quoted as havingi
told Mr. Parker that ''le had ar- J
ranged with Mir. Boykin, one of the
members of' t he hoard of cottrol, for
IMr. Boykin to be his representative
on the board of' control, and to see j
to it that he got his share of the
business.' ' He (lid not get the new Ia
business, andh Mr. Boykin is quoted(
as hav'ing said that ''le had not got- .
ten a more satisfactory offer from
others, but thuat others were p)rov'id
ing for other members of the family<
than himself, amnd blood was thicker
than water, and that a certain other
liquor house employed a brother-in
law of Mr. Boykin as special repre
sentative or something of the sort,
and that the other house was -doing
equally as well by him as Mr. Lana
Mr. Evans is alleged to have said
that there was an agreement by
which members .would order from
certain houses, and that the agree
menut was for Mr. Boykin to see to
Mr. Laniahan 's business.

Mr. Parker said: "I eannot sa

ral statements as to- having agr
tents with members of the board b
,hich they were to get it.'"
Mr. Lanahan .made it very plai

A Name That Should be Known.
During the afternoon Mr. Parke
zain declined to answer who Mi
anahan had employed as his agen

id not know that this represente

Asiness and lie might do him a gros
