18,787 WHISKEY PRESCRIPTIONS.
Why Frohibition is a Farce Order I
Charlotte News: Since the 8t:
day of July 18,787 whiskey pre
scr in*ins have been filled by th
Char~>tte drug stores. Putting th
average charge of the doctors fo
writing prescriptions at 40 cent
each. this will show that the aboli
tion of the bar rooms has added t,
their income during a period o
less than six months just $7,518.8c
or a yearly average of $15,o37.6c
Placing the amount purchased of
each prescription at 8o cents, thi
will show that the drug store
have done a whiskey business in th
same length of time of $15,o37.6c
or an annual trade of $30,075.2c
Combining these amounts paid t<
the doctors and the drug stores, i
will show that $45, 112.80 is spen
annually for whiskey in the dru2
These figures will show that i
I pays to be a drug store and a doc
tor in Charlotte.

UNION ELECTION VOTE COUNTED.
Majority of Eleven for the Dispensary
Protest Notice AAgued.
- Union, January 6.-The boar
of county canvassers met here thi
morning for the purpose of car
vassing the vote polled at the elec
tion held on December 27, 190;
the issue being the establishmen
of a dispensary in Union count)
It will be remembered that the elec
tion as reported at the time, resulte
in favor of the dispensary by a ma
jority of eleven. On opening th
boxes this morning the board tab
ulated the returns of the manager
of election and found that coun
Another purpose of the meetin
today was to hear the argument
on the contest notice, which wa
filed at the first meeting of thi
board when an adjournment wa:
ordered till today in order .to giv<
opposing counsel opportunity ,to se
This matter came up this morn
ing and Messrs. R. H. Welch, o
Columbia, joined Messrs. J. G
Hughes and B. F. Townsend in re
sisinig the application of the con
testants for an order declaring th<
election ~void. The contest, is bas
ed on allegations that at nine ou
of fifteen boxes of the county elec
tors were allowed to vote withou
producing registration certificate
or tax receipts, and in some in
stances that men registered at on'
precinct were permitted to vote a
another. The contestors filed thei
answer today dehying all the alle
gations of the contestants, and al
leging that at fourteen boxes ou
of fifteen mnen who voted "Agamns
Sale" were allowed to vote with
out producing- registration certifi
cates or tax receipts and that a
other precincts men were allowe<
to vote "Against Sale" who wer<
registered at other precincts.
When the pleadings were pro
duced affidavits in proof of the al
legations of their contest were sub
mitted. This kind of proof was
firmly and forcibly objected to b:
Mr. Welch, who insisted that th<
witnesses themselves should b<
produced and sworn. After a grea
deal of argument pro and con I
was finally agreed that adjourn
ment be taken till tomorrow an<
that in the meantime subpoenas bi
issued for witnesses to appear 11
person and the board accordingl:
adjourned till tomorrow. Inciden
Itally it may be remarked that th
contest has greatly stimulated th
desire of the voters to secure cer
tificates of registration. The boar
of registration was also in sessiol
today, and crowds of men were a
day seeking to be registered.
