Governor Blease Commands Seizure of
liquors Sold at Auction by federal
Columbia, May 4.?Governor Blease,
In a letter addressed to every sheriff
In South Caroina, calls on them to
eeize all contraband liquor which is
sold by United States officers, as contraband,
as soon as it is in the hands
of the purchaser. This action of the
governor is taken following the decision
of Federal Judge Smith that United
States revenue officers have a right
to sell liquor seized by them in this
State at public auction, as was done
by Deputy Scruggs at Walhalla receut- j
ly. The letter of the governor follows
lteasons for Position.
"If at any time an agent or officer of
the United States government advertises
that he is going to have a sale of i
whiskey at any point within your j
county, you are hereby directed and !
commanded to be personally present
at the place of the said sale, and when
the same takes place, and the contraband
whiskey, which is sold as such
by the United States government, is
delivered to the purchaser, you seize
^ "Immediately the said whiskey, beer,
Wine or other alcoholic liquors, under
and in accordance with the provisions

lina. It may be lawful for an officer
of tli? United States government to
cell whiskey within the State of South
Carolina otherwise than is provided
by our State laws (but I for one do j
not believe it;) however, we wilJ bow
to the decision of the court until reversed,
but when the United States
government sells this whiskey, etc., he
who purchases it, becomes the owner
of and in possession of contraband liquors,
which is prohibited by our sta
tute laws, because if it were not contraband
the United States government
would not be selling it; for, they seize
it as such. Therefore, under the law
of our State, when the whiskey, or
other intoxicating liquors is delivered ;
to the purchaser he then becomes the
owner and is in possession of the contraband,
in direct violation of our statute
laws. Therefore, when the United
States government officers make 1
their sale, as soon as the stuff is put
into the hands of th^ purchaser, >ou >
are hereby directed and commanded to
immediately seize it as contraband, 1
and if any action is brought against
you, either civil or criminal, you will
immediately communicate with this ;
office and I will take proper steps to
have your interests protected. i

tonight by Noon Evans, a negro railroad
hand. The negro escaped and a
large posse of men are seeking him
and if he is captured, it is believed
further trouble will result
It is understood that the shooting
was the result of a quarrel over a debt
owed by the negro to Mr. All. Evans
bore the reputation of a quarrelsome
negro, especially when drinking, and
he was drinking tonight. He passed
Mr. All's store and Mr. All asked him

and Mr. All -walked after him, whereupon
the negro drew a pistol and fired
five times, only the last shot taking
effect, entering the left side about two
inches below the heart, and passing
through the body.
It is feared that the wound may
prove fatal, although the surgeons are
unable to determine the result as yet.

Resolutions Passed by the Johnston t
Democratic Club, AO. z, .Lage- 1
The following preamble and reso- 3
lutions were unanimously adopted by ^
the Johnston club: ^
Whereas, Senator B. R. Tillman,
having rendered such valuable service (
to his State and county by bringing 1
to light many things that were either j(
overlooked or winked at by his prede- J
cessors. In his efforts to readjust the
indebtedness of South Carolina to the '
federela government was indebted to
federal gobernment was indebted to
the State of South Carolina for more
than three hundred thousand dollars, j
Whereas, he made claim ,and was ^
successful in obtaining from the federal
government fifteen thousand dol- *
lars due Newberry college, and .
Whereas, his lecturing tour through (
the North, East and Northwest was
highly appreciated by the people of (
that section, in his explanation of the
race and social questions which seems
to have been settled forever. No other
senator or congressman ever attempted
and we do not believe could
have handled these colossal questions
as successfully, and
Whereas, Senator Tillman's fight on
the vital legislation for the South,
1. Interstate commerce, holding
that any State has a right to bar transportation
of any objectionable cornmoiity
from its borders. |
2. The illegal option operations in
cotton and grain.
3. The issuance of liquor license in
prohibition States and many other
rital questions that concern his own j
a.nd other people of the South. Therefore,
Resolved, That we endorse his
course in tne united states senate anu
pledge Mm our support in his reelection.
$> FIRST DEMOCRATIC YICTORY. ??
S> <5> j
(W. T. C. in Laurensville Herald). [
In 1868, so soon alter tne war, me i
negroes of course, could not read, j
therefore the election ticket?that is 1
the Republican ticket had to have
some kind of an emblem on it, so that :
the negroes could distinguish between ;
tie Republican and the Democratic
ticket. As a further precaution, the *
Republican ticket was also printed
with red ink. At this time Col. T. B.
Crews was running a hack line be- tween
Laurens and Newberry, and the
driver was a negro, man named Bunch
G-arlington. On Saturday night before c
the election, Bunch had brought up! ^
with him the election tickets for the I?
negroes, and somehow or other a few j t
of the tickets had slipped out of the j 3
package and dropped on the floor of j
the hack, where, on Sunday morning!
Col. .Crews found them. He immediately
sent for all the "printer boys," j
and after a conference with some of j
our leading men of the day, it was de- (
cided to counterfeit the Republican j -
ticket if possible. But -where "were
they to get a picture of the eagle? It
was easy enough to print the ticket
with red ink, but how and "where they 1
would get an eagle was the question,
Finally, the difficulty was solved by
"one of the boys" mentioning the fact
that there was an old Dowie & Moise
druggist cut in the office with an eagle !
on it, and possibly they might saw the i
eagle off and get a cut that way. This
plan was adopted and the eagle secured!!
and put at the head of the Democratic!:
ticket which was printed with red ink, 1
and the next difficulty now was how
would they get the tickets in the
hands of the negroes. It took a long
time to print the tickets, as only one
form could be printed at a time, since
they only had one eagle cut, and to
get all the tickets printed in time it
was necessary to work all day Sunday
and Sunday night. As I said before,
elections in those days lasted two days
?Monday and Tuesday?and the tick
ets had to be ready by Monday morning.
Col. Crews, "bought up" old
Bunch and got him to take the tickets
to Tumbling Shoals and give them out
after first destroying the big batch of
Republican tickets he carried from
Laurens court house, as a blind. Col.!
Crews himself went to Cross Hill,
where he "bought up" a negro at that

and in this way th? Democratic lead-!

well distributed at every precinct in
the county, and through this counter-,
feiting of the tickets the Democrats,
won the election?the first and only i
Democratic victory won after the war
