IT MUST BE EXEMPT
IPORTA,Nr OPINION ON L:IQUOR
if Supplies Come Under Interstate
Clause Unless Intended for Illegal
Sale, They Are Safe.
Attorney General Lyon has given
an opinion in which he holds that
whiskey for private or personal use
can not be seized by any officer. This
opinion is directly opposite to the rul
ing by Judge Memminger, given in
his charge to the jury in SurxteT coun
ty, when he declared that V hiskey for
personal use was liable tj b. seized
The ruling by the attorney general
was given on the request of J. L. Gil
lis, a magistrate of Rembert, in Sum
ter county, and several questions were
asked concerning the seizure of whis

The following is the letter address
ed to J. L. Gillis, magistrate at Rem
bert, by Attorney General Lyon:
"Your letter of the 1st inst. is at
hand. You ask that you be advised up
on the following question:
"'1. Is it my duty under the law as
a magistrate to have whiskey seized
from any and all persons as soon as
same is delivered to them by the ex
press company or other carrier,
where I have no reason to believe that
it is for any purpose other than per

* THE STATE CAMPAIGN.. *
* * * * * * * * * * *
Florence, August 1.-Fifteen coun
ties are yet to be visited by the party
of gentlemen who are seeking politi
cal honors at the hands of South Caro
lina voters. Three weeks more of ac
tive campaigning and the iti.nerary
ends. Tomorrow the "Baby" county,
Dillon, will have her first experience
Swith a State campaign meeting.
To one who follows the campaign
party from county to county there is
considerable interest, even though the
speeches do some times become
monotonous. But the hope "that
something is going to happen" re
liev;es, to a degree at least, the bore
dom, especially for the newspaper
men. Every now and then a candidate
says something new, and the reporters
wake up and take notice. Every now
and then a candidate takes a shot at
an opponent, but these have been of
too small a calibre to create much dis
turbance. But far be it from this cor
respondent to so far deviate from the
straight and narrow path of truth to
say that any relief is to be found in
the introduction of new jokes. It's al
ways the same old thing, day after
day. Already the newspaper men are
considering plans to publish in full
each candidate's set of pet jokes; in
the opinion of some this will break up
the canipaign, or at least cripple it
materially. Others say that it is cov
ert effort to kill the county to coun
ty campaign system. All agree, that
is all the candidates agree, that it is
but another mtanifestationi of the
mean dispositions belonging to "that
That newspaper bunch, by the way,
have something to look forward to
each day. When the party assembles
about the hotel lobby, the newspaper
mar buys a paper at once to see that
his story is all 0. K. Before he can
give it half a glance along comes a
candidate and says: "Let me see your
paper a minute." Always obliging,
the victim caves. The aforesaid can
didate reads every word that has been
said about him and his competitors,
and handing back your paper, says:
"You certainly mssedi it on that
my- ife, and I had th" applaus"." The
newspaper man, with a sweet smile
and a sweeter voice, replies: "'Th ink
so?" But while you are talkingr. an
other candidate comes up and -
~hear+y approval in his tones, as:
it right; didn't I have that crowd.
though?" Before the thrill of pleasure
quiets down, though, you hear two
others who are holding a little conso
lation meeting hard by, pass the ver
diet that you are a punk reporter be
cause you did not mention them.
Another kind, is the fellow who
jumps on a little error that you have
committed; he says nothing to you,
but when his turn to speak rolls
around, he "jumps the newspapers"
for their unfairness. Still another, is
the candidate who habitually "c-.,sses
out the newspapers." The people do
not mind him much, though, for they
realize that he hasn't much else to
talk about and has to resort to the
candidate's last hope. Sometimes
they get really very ugly in their talk:
they say some pretty mean things.
But that line doesn't catch like it "us

yell and scream with laughter; at oth
ers there is only a ripple. The Moncks
Corner folks had a fine time; they en
joyed those jokes more than any aud
ience met with thus far and the "wise"
candidate saw which way the wind
blew and trimmed his sails according
ly; in consequence of which a big and
healthy bunch of yarns was handed
The matter of applause, as intimat
ed above, is one of the snags that the
newspaper man runs into oftener than
any other. As a rule a candidate is
able to determine for himself just
how he comes out; but sometimes he
misses the mark and then he jumps

Another little "pleasure" that the
reporter has to look forward to is the
tip that the candidate gives him;
along he comes early in the day with
this: "I am going to 'light into' it to
day; I am going to say,' thus and so.
You sit there and try to look interest

However, to mention only the trials
