a letter from Goodman, showing that
he did try to hold up purchases in
August, 1904. The minute books
were produced to show that the board
made no purchases in that month,
but that in September. when he had
landed in ihis new job, Goodman sold
larae orders. In. the meantime Com
monwealth business dwindled away
and Ullman's grew apace.
"The usual commissions" in
Goodman's singular letter was ex
plained to mean the commissions to
John Black, agent. and not to the
members of the board.
These commissions paid to some
body must have been very heavy for

Mr. Felder made a point out of the
fact that there were several brands
which Goodman got up, "Bully Boy"'
and "Good Bo.' etc.. almost exclu-!
sivelv for the South Carolina trade.
A Righteous Protest.
Mr. Felder showed how after the
letter of Goodman written in August,
1904. Ullman & Co. got a large order.
whereas before that time they had
received nothing', and this called
forth a nratest from the chairman of
the board. Mr. H. H. Evans. This
was put in evidence by Mr. Feller,
who presented it as " a remarkab1h
document, a rightFeous protest, set
forth in 'eight orderly paragraphs
.eonveying his indignationi to the peo
ple of South Carolina."
Protest of H. H. Evans. Chairman
of the .State Board of Directors for
-the South Carolina dispensary:
3.. Because the legislature of South
~Carolina has by resolution required
-the directors of the South Carolina
*dispensary to carry and have only
$400,000 in stoek and liability.
2. Because when .the purchases
were made on the 17th day of Sep
tember, 1904. there were 1,600 eases
of liciuor of previous purdhase, to
wit: In the months of March, April,
May or June unordered out by the
cormissioners and were and are held
by the sellers of said liquors yet
availaible to the commissioner of said
dispensary, subject to said commi+
sion er 's order.
3. Because notwithstanding the
previous purchases, and notwithstani
ing the commissioner did not make
a requisitioin for thre purchase of
said new liquors which were bought
by the majority the said board of di
rectors on September 17. 1904, when
8aid new goods couldl only be handled
as introductory liquors.
4. Because the dispensary has
debts past due and unpaid.
5. Because taking the law of the
legislature and all of the aforesaid
into consideration the purchase made
of new goods on the 17th day of
September, 1904, was unwarranted
and without precez-ent in the past
auaemenit of said dispensary, and
in addition it is in my judgmen'
car-lv unwise and unsound business
6. Because Hon W. 0. Tatum, com
mnissionz;r for said dispensary. re
quested that no new or introductory
goods be given him for distribution,
st':iting that he' had request from
some of the subdispensaries not to
burden them with new and introduc
7. Bei.se two cars of new bran.is
of beer from new houses was en
tirely unnecesary as the beer season
is near its close and the beer depart
ment of said di.spensary iad out
standing purchase.s of this class of
beers ample and available and sub
ject to commissioner's orders.
S. Because the proprietors and
agents were i I lhe city at the pur
chase of said liquors on Sept. 17,
1904. c ontrarv to the statutes in such
eases made and provided and con
trary to a resolution passed by said
board and which resolution was pro
posed by the Hon. John Bell Towill
and passed unanimously and had
been entered upon the minute books
of said board and that no repeal of
said resoiution by said board or by
legislature has ever been passed,
therefore .said resolution was and is
binding in all that it contained.
Respectfully submitted and filed,
this 18th day of September, 1904.
(Signed) .H. H. Evans,
Chairman State Board of Directors
for South Carolina dispensary.
The foregoing protest of H. H.
Evans. chairman of the state board
of directors is not made or based up
on or by any malice or prejudice but 1
simply upon business principles as
each member of the state board is
fully friends and in perfect harmony.
Except as to the business methods

There was 700 cases of "apricot
brandy" sold at the December meet
in- in 1904, Mr. Felder asked a num
ber of searchin,: questions and
brought out the information that this
is not a distilled brandy but a con
coction, colored and flavored and
at a higih price.
"What is it worth." asked Mr.
"Whatever I can get for it," an
An analysis of the purchases for
this month showed 400 barrels and
2,200 cases awarded to Goodman.
Witness denied that he got any "rake
off " from tlhe Big Springs Distilling
company also at this meeting. This
company is owned by Sigel Myer, an
uncle of the wiltness, but they were
represented by one Solomons. Wit
ness admitted representing an India
napolis beer company, but did not
remember the prices or the commis-'
sions. He had written to the board
to "remember our Indianapolis
friends." (Goodman is a nephew of
Mayor Myers of Savannah.)
Goodman ad'mitted that lie and
one Early of Fleischmann & Co. had
entertained L. W. Boykin, then a di
retor, when Boykin went to Cincin
nati with Tatum. However, Boykin
had returned to them the price of
his entertaanmenit. "Did he have
very much trouble to get you to take
it back," asked Mr. Felder sarcasti
eally, and everybody in the court
Mr. Felder stated that in decem
ber. 1904, the distinguished chair
man of the board had filed anothier

Newberry. S. C., Dec. 17, 1904.
My most earnest protest is hereby
entered against the purebase of the
various niew brands of goods bought
by the majority of the state board of
directors of the South Carolina diis
pensary on the 15th day of Dec.,
1904, for the following reasons:
1. Because said purchases were
and are eonitrary to businiess methods
and detrimental to the good manage
ment of the dispensary, besides there
absolutely was no demand for said
2. Because the Stat:e commissioner
not only did not request the purchase
of any of said new goods, but, upon
the contrary, has repeatedly request
ed the said board not to burden him
with introductory goods.
3. Because thre State dispensary is
not in suc'h a financial condition as
to warrant the experiment of pur
chasing new, *untried and fancy
brands of liquors.
4. Beeause the representatives of
the liquor houses selling said goods
were in the city of C'olumbia during
the time of said purchases soliciting
orders, which is contrary to law and
against 1,ire resolutions of the State
board of directors of the South Car

Mr. Felder tried to bring it out
that Ulbnan & Co. had charged high
er prices on wholesale lots on every
piece of "goods" to South Carolina
thn in r,-ail lots to other dealers.
He established this in several in
stances by the books of record.
Had a Falling Out.
There was somewhat of a seusatio:
when Mr. Felder proved that afte
a while Goodman and Ehrlich ha<
had a falling out and that Goodmar
had paid $500 for the return of 1
"price list." Goodman forgot abon
or denied this until the documentar:
evidence was produced and then ht
