The petitions presented to Super
visor Wicker asking for an election
on the dispensary question in New
berry county contained 812 names. It
was found that only 590 of these
names were those of qualified electors
of the county, contained on the regis
tration books. It was found that the
re.istration books contained 3.019
names, and less than one-fourth of
these appearing on the petitions, no
election will be held.
Supervisor Wicker and the board
began the work of comparing the pe
titions with the registration books on
Monday. The work was completed
Wednesday afternoon, and the result
announced at that time.
The Carey-Cothran Act, passed at
the last session of the legislat-ure, pro
vided that an election could be held
on the question in Newberry county
this year upon the petition of one
fourth the qualified electors of the
county, presented to the supervisor on
or before May 1. Newberry county
was one of the counties as to which
special provision was made in this
respect, the general law providing
that no election could be held in any
county which had previousl.y had an
election on the question until the~first
.eneral election after the lapse of four
years from the time of that election.
Newberry county voted out the dis
pensary in the fall of 1905. No elec
tion being held this year under the
special provision as to this county,
the four years from the last election
will not have passed until 1909. The
general election after that time comes
in 1910, so that, under the present
law, it will be 1910 before an elec
tion can be had on the question in
this county. -
The board of commissioners took
up the petitions and the registration
books by precincts. The following
tabulation by precincts shows the
number of electors at the various pre
inets whose names are on the peti
tions, and the numiber of electors
whose names do not appear on the
petitions, the tota l for each precinet
giving the total num:ber of electors
at that precinct, as shown by the
books of registration:
