The general prosperity of the coun

resulted in tying up a great deal of
money in investments, and the strin

a character as to cause alarm. Mani
of our farmers have asked loans or

both in the banking and warehousf
business I am in a position to know
that it is the desire of the banks tc

The situation illustrates very forci

a committee from both houses to in

has been a great improvement in th<

Judge Pritchard Has Discussed the
Petition For Mandamus-Blind
Columbia. S. C.. Nov. 22.-Attor
ney General Lyon returned from
Richmond today, where he appe:red
before Judge Pritchard in the Garrett
injunction matter, bringing back a
copy of Judge Pritchard 's drder dis
missing the petition for mandamus to
require the commission to hang up
all the funds until the Garrett claim
is -adjudicated, but quiring the com
mission to set aside $10,000 for Gar
rett's prosecution until the question
of the federal court's -jurisdietion
can be decided. Mr. Lyon does not
believe Judge Priteliard will decide
I that he has jurisdiction.
Mr. Lyca smiled good-naturedly to
day when he was asked about the
movement. that has started in Char
leston to test the constitutionality of
the Carey-Cothran law in the federal
courts. He said he was not a bit
afraid of the outcome. All he would
ask the federal courts to do would be
to stand by their former decisions.
iwhen they reversed Judge Simon
to:i. who declared the old state dis
pensary law unconstitutional in the

morning were three big bundles of
"priated matter" just from the prin

was ammunition 'for more injuncetion
broadsides. The bundles were peti
t.ion forms, injunctiou erder forms
and "baeks" for the orders in which
to send to the attorneys of tigers en

printed. All that will be necessary
now to go through the red tape of
securing an injunction against a
blind tiger will .be to fill out one of
these petitions with the names of the
persons and the location of the plac
es and then follow by filling in the
other forms. Mr. Lyon denied that it
was the instantion to have Justice
Gary sign these injunction orders in
