Columbia, July 14.-"It is my posi

county boards of control who have
bought goods from houses that de
frauded the State under the State dis
pensary system, unless these members
can show some very sound excuse,"
said Governor Blease this afternoon,
when asked about a letter he had dis
patched to the chairmen of the six
county dispensary boards, inquiring
whether they were dealing with hous
es shown up in an unfavorable light
by dispensary Investigations.
Governor Blease reenforced this let
ter, of date July 10, by a further mes
sage today, which was forwarded by
telegraph, except in the case of the
Richland board, to whom it was mail
ed. This second message reads:
"A Word to the Wise."
"In my opinion, you should not pur
chase goods from any house that ad
mits it defrauded the State under the
State dispensary, and I request that
you do not. 'A word to the wise should
Governor Blease said today: "I have
called on Dispensary Auditor M. H.

governor's attitude in the matter was

"If you make purchases from these
houses, knowing the facts, I feel that
