and no person could be in possession
of any whiskey at any point in ti e
State without (violating the law. We
must therefore look to other provisions
of the act to ascertain in what
cases a person may handle or use
whiskey. Under section 2 any person
is permitted to order from a point
without toe State not exceeding one
gallon within any calendar montf; and
liquor so ordered may be kept by such
person in. his private room or house.
Had the act stopped at the end of
section 2, there would be no difficulty
in its construction.
"The part of the act which !bas given
me serious difficulty is section 6. Under
ti-is section it is provided that 'nothing
in this act shall prevent the shipment
or transportation of alcoholic
liquors or beverages to or from any
dispensary authorized by the law of
this State to sell same in the county
of such dispensary.' If the words, 'in
the county of sud'n1 dispensary,' had
been omitted, I think it would be clear
that any person could purchase whiskey
from a dispensary and carry it to
any point within the State. The purpose
of the legislature seems to aave
been to prohibit the transportation
and delivery of any wLiskey into any
county in the State having no dispensary,
whether for personal use or
not, except as provided in section 2,
and I am, therefore, of the opinion that
it would be unlawful for any person
to purchase whiskey at a dispensary
in -Columbia for his personal use and
convey it into tfce county of Newberry.,

constiutionality of this provision, but
I am trying to give my construction
of the act as it reads and as it should
be enforced until declared unconstitutional.
4'3. I do not think a person "would
be violating this act by having a pint
of whiskey in ibis pocket for his own
use, provided such whiskey is obtained
in accordance with) law.
"4. Under the decision of our supreme
court and of the United States
supreme court, I do not think you have
the right to examine the records of
the railroads and express offices.
"5. I tlhink that a person would liave
the riglit to transport or comvey for
bis own use a gallon of whiskey ordered
from a point without the State,
even though the whiskey may be received
at an express office in another
county. In other words, there is nothing
in the act which requires that the
consignee should have his whiskey delivered
to him witJMn fa is county, nor
does it provide that he shall personally
receive it at his nearest railroad or
express office. It only provides that
it must be personally delivered to

TO ENFORCE LAWS
The Governor Has Given Mayor of
Charleston One Week in Wfcieh
to Take Action.

Columbia, March 29.?"Definite action
must be taken within a week,"
Governor Manning told Mayor Grace,
of Charleston, this afternoon at a conference
between them. "I asked Mayor
Grace," said the governor, "as head
of the government of Charleston to
enforce the gambling law and the
liquor law. I asked for enforcement

as so much time has already elapsed

first taken the matter up with him,
that definite action ipust be taken

well informed on tJ:e situation that
nothing could be gained by further
The statement of the governor followed
the publication in the local afternoon
newspaper of an interview
with Mayor Grace, in whicfc he was
quoted as saying:
"Gov. Manning told me unequivocally
to enforce the law in Charleston.
I took, his order." Continuing, this
interview says: 'iMayor Grace was j
rather reticent in discussing the liquor
situation in Charleston, saying that
everything appertaining to the illegal
sale of intoxicants has been aired by
every one on every occasion. He
averred, however, that Charleston
si.ould be granted autonomy, that the
people of the city should be allowed to
regulate their own affairs as to liquor
selling in a progressive way.
"The Charleston Mayor is of the j
opinion that the State needs a new
2onstiution, which will do away with
;he present cumbersome system of legislation
and allow progressive measures
to be passed. He also thinks that
Charleston needs a new city charter,

would a . <> nothing to say for publica- !
tion. and it was not his intention to j
give out anything, but when he saw i
the statement of Mayor Grace in C;.e
local paper he dictated the interview ;
in which he said that Mayor Grace had
been given one week in which definite !
action must be taken.
