Up its Case.
The t,a'te, 7th.
Practically admitting 'that they

'tent of thousand of dollars 'under
* the regime of the old State dispen
~arv i'n South Carolina, the whiskey
rmof William Lanahan & .Sons of
B3ahimore yesterday paid to Attor
ney General Lyon the sum of $14,
000 in settlemen't of "over-judg

p'ensary commission 'at its sitting last

:mission by the firm and an over-judg
mnent o~f $23,000 found by the coma
!nission are wiped out and the appeal
to the supreme court abandoneid.
~Coincident with the payment of the
~$14,000 the injunction secured agai??s
the firm by the ,com.mission to pre
vent the collection of sums owed by
- the .several county dispansaries of the
* tate was dissolved.
Eidl Denied Overcharginlg.
The admission that the State was
*overcharged by 'the Lanaban com-t
pany, proves interesting in view of
the emphatic statements of the repre
*sentatives of the compalny befor'e
the commission at the hearing 'ast
:spring to the effect that there had
been no ,overeharges on goods sold im
* Another ijnt'eresting fact in connec
tion with the Lanahan matter is that
it was claimed by the representatives
of the firm that important books of
* h company were destroyed in the
great Baltimore fire. The attorneys
contended that 'these books should be
produced, saying that they would
show that the State ha'd been, over
charged. The Lanahan company was
represented at the hearings beforc
the commission by Clark & Clark of
One of the Farnums.
The later action of Lanahan & Sons
is very interesting in view of the
many charges made during the sever
al investigations and strenuously de
nied. J. S. Farnum is allegeld, to have
had this house on the list of concerns
he -represented, and Farnum has
pleaded guilty in one case, though
the name of this particular firm was
i not meotioned especially in the case.
9he following order was filed in
the circuit court of Richland coumnty
"The plaintiff, the State of South
Carolina, and the defendant, William
Lanahan & Son, having come to a
settlement of this suit upon terms
mutually satisfactory where it is
stipulated that the injunction issued
by this court shall be dissolved and
the ease discontinued it is now on
motion of the attorney general or
dered: Th:at theinjunctions heretofore
issued by this court be, and the same
are, hereby dissolved and the com
plaint herein dismissed.
