< DR. MURRAY APPEARS.
Attorney General Also Replies to Re
cent Resolution of Winding-Up
Columbia, May 30.-The appearance
of Dr. William J. Murray, the chair
man of the old dispensary commission
before the new commission upon the
rule to show cause, the statement of
Attorney General Lyon, that, in the
circumstances, he can not press the
Richland Distilling company's case;
the receiving of a petition from tbe
Carolina Glass company to reopen its
case before the new commission; a
consideration of the Scruggs matter
and a return from the members of the
old commission, were the chief fea
tures of the session of the dispensary
commission held here today.
Basis of Felder Charges.
As to the exact charges against
Thomas B. Felder, it is learned today
that the John Bell Towill inqident re
ferred to in the press some time ago.
and the "Hub" Evans alleged "frame
up." will be the main bases of the case
against the Atlanta attorney. It is
. understood that both Evans and Towill
will be placed upon the stand if the
case is brought to trial.
Considerable interest was manifest
ed here in the statement about the ar
rest of Col. Felder. It is not believed
that he will voluntarily come In re
sponse to the warrant, however, and
a hard fight for requisition will prob
ably be waged.
\ Attorney General's Reply.
Attorney General Lyon today made
reply to the dispensary commission's
resolution, asking him to go ahead
with the 'Richland distillery case.
In brief, Mr. Lyon's reply is to the
effect that as the Atlanta firm of at
torneys had charge of these matters
and were engaged at the time they
were dismissed by the new commis
sion, in handling this particular suit
and the data is in their hands, he is
not in a position to carry on the suit.
Mr. Lyon concludes:
"I will be unable to proceed with
this litigation with any reasonable
hope of success without your furnish
ing me the facts or providing therefor,
as was done by your predecessors."
Dr. Murray's Return.
Dr. William J. Murray, the chair
man of the old commission, in his re
turn to the rule to show cause why
he had not turned over the vouchers
of the old commission, declared that
the vouchers sought are the personal
property of the old commission for the
protection of the members and that it
3s mot conceded that the new comnmis
91011 has the right to demand these
vouchers, but that the new cAnmis
slon is welcome to look over mne
vouchers and make copies, if so de
In addition to Dr. Murray's return,
four members of the ol.d commission
miake a - joint return setting out that it
is not believed by them that the new
commission has the power to demand
the vouchers and the return also goes
into the question of the jurisdiction
of the new commission ending, in
psrt, that "this commission is not em
powered to make such investigations
and has no right to demand either the
vouchers referred to or that the for
mer commission is subject to such ex
amination of their actions, except in
so far as they can :furnish information
to assist (a) in collecting money due?
the State or (b) in defending any
claims by a party claiming under a
transaction with the old State dispen

dispensary commission at noon to
day and asked again that the merits
of its case be entered into by the

The following statement is of espe

The dispensary co:nmission in ses
sion tonight discussed greatly the dis
pensary situation. No announcements
The attorney general stated that
Scruggs should be paid something, but
he was not prepared to say how much.
Scruggs asked for about $3,000, it will
be recalled, for services he rei.dered
in connection with bringing G. H.
Charles here to testify. Mr. Lyon told
the commission that if requested he
would prepare a statement later of
what he thought Scruggs should be
paid. Scruggs claimed he had already
been paid $1,000. Announcement was
made this evening that none of the
matters considered by the dispensary
commission today has been conc:uded.
The Murray hearing is continued un
til tomorrow. Attorney W. F. Steven
son reached the city this evening at
6.50 o'clock. He is to confer with
counsel and Dr. Murray about the pro
ceeding against Dr. Murray.
Report of Road Overseer No. 3.
To the Board of County Commission
ers of Newberry County.
I have inspected all roads ih, No. 3
township and find thfe,= in best con
dition ever known due to the dry win
ter, good work done by overseers in
1910, and the excellent work done 'by
chaingang in April and May.
I wish to make special mention of
the work done by chaingang on the
Henderson's ferry road and on road
from Keitt's bridge to Gordon's bridge.
The board will do well to keep such
men as Messrs. Miller and Werts, as
they certainly know how to build good
roads. I would be glad that the board
would work portions of road with
gang on R. F. D. route from Blairs as
early as possible.
I do not find many roads worked
this year by overseers, but it has been
too dry to accomplish much. The
bridge near B. H. Maybin's, on Hen
derson's ferry road, needs repairing,
also most of lumber used on bridges
in Maybinton is only 12 feet long, una
I think same should be at least 16
feet long. The work recommended in
my last report 'has all been completed
with exception of Keitt's bridge, and
I am reliably informed that the work
will be done soon.
I wish to commend Commissioner
Leitzsey on his strenuous efforts to
keep bridges and ferries in good con
dition and he has made some remark
able improvements in the last two
I think with the aid of chaingang
and with good overseers No. 3 town
ship will soon have some good roads.
