~ AGAINST THE DISPENSARY.
Judge Simonton on Monday filed
his decision in the Vandercook case
pending against the Dispensary. The
decision was no surprise, as his at
titude towards the law was well
known, and his decision was there
fore anticipated when the case was
argued two weeks ago. The follow
ing is the gist of his decision:
"Any State may in the exercise of the
police power declare that the manufacture,
sale, barter and exchange or the use as a
beverage of alcoholic liquors are public
evils, and, having thus declared, can forbid
such manufacture, sale, barter and ex
change or- use within her territory.
But when a State recognizes and ap
proves the manufacture, sale, barter and
exchange and the usc, as a beverage, of
al' >holic liquors, and the State itself en
courages the manufacture, engages in the
al'e of and provides for the consumption
of alcoholic liquors as a beverage, and so
precludes the idea that such manufacture,
sale. b.arter, exchange or use ar3 injurious
t> the public welfare, it is not a lawful -ex
ercse of the polhce power to forbid the im
portatioA of such liquors or their sale in
oricinal packages for personal use and con
Such prohibition under such circutm
stances is in conflict with tbe laws of Inter
state and foreign commerce.
The Dispensary Act of 1896, as amended
by the Act of 1897. inasmuch as they ap
prove the purchase and manufacture of al
coholic liquors for the State, and provide
for the sale of such alcoholic liquors as a
beverage, in aid of the finances of the State.
in so far as they forbid the importations of
alcoholic liquors in original packages for
personal use and consumption and the sale
of such original piackages for such use in
this State, are to conflict with the laws of
Interstate and foreign commerce, and are,
to that extent, void."
The decision means simply that
persona outside of South Carolina
may import liquors into this State
and sell the same in original or un
broken packages, in direct competi
tion with the law. The law is not
killed by any means. Its powers to
regulate the quantities in 'which
liquor may be sold, the hours of sale,
the prevention of drinking on the
premises or of selling to minors or
drunkard&, remain unmolested. The
decision will affect the Dispensary
law mos.. by opening up competition
and pre-:enting the State from mak
ing biig profits. Now let the State
go to work and enforce the provis
ions of the law. that remain in force.
The commissions of all State Con
stables will probably be called in, and
the law will have to stand flatly upon
its merits. 'We hope to see what re
mains of it strictly and rigidly en-'
McLAURIN WANTS A PRIMARY.
Senator McLaurin went to Colum
bia Saturday and received his cre
dentials, when he immediately pro
ceeded to Washington and Tuesday
was sworn in as the junior Senator
from South Carolina. In his letter
of acceptance to Governor Ellerbe he'
thanks him for the high honor, and
requests that a primary be held in
order that the voters of the State
might make the selection of the per
manent successor to Senator Earle.
McLaurin is that sort of a man. He
does not want to remain in the pos.
tion of the people's highest represen
tative unless he is the people's choice,
and declares his willingness to sub
mit gracefully if they should see tt
to elevate some one else. But this
will not be.
THE TIMEs is peculiarly gratified
when it remembers that several years
ago when McLaurin entered pubic
life it was among the first to recognize
in him such ability and representa
tive worth as was possessed byfe
men before the public, and since then
it s been perhaps his most ardent
-rpcatr in the State, nde it is a

IcLaurin, but to his many admirers!,
to see the grand chorus of approval i
that is expressed at his appointment. i
As we said last week, he was the log- t
ical man for the position. Without
any disparagement to others, .M
Laurin stands head and shoulders 1
above any other man in Congress from I
South Carolina to-day, and few men
n either house have a future so preg
ant with the possibilities of great
sefulness. Since he has been in Con
ress he has been a hard student,and
as mastered many of the great prob- ~
[ms that confront representatives,
nd with which the majority are not
apable of grappling, and therefore
e has now the experience that it
ill take others years to learn. He
ill not be the representative of a
arty or faction, but of the people of
outh Carolina, and this the people
ecognize. They recognize in him
sch qualities as can rise above fac
onal disturbances and class legisla
on and espouse such causes as are
nly suggested by the true states
an and for the progress and refine
ent of a nation. He is a worthy
accessor to the lamented Earle

his paper with a two-column broad

t is hard to make any reasonable
culation as to what cotton will
ag the coming fall, except that we
almost safely assume that it will
bring on an average more than
cents. The outlook now is for a
y large crop. Sometime ago the
)ds in the Mississippi Valley had
effect of running up the price

iditions in other localities have
re than overbalanced that. Texas
I come in with an increased acre
of something like ten per cent.,
I the increase in the other States

Judge D. A. Townsend presided
at the term of the Coart, which
convened Monday morning. The
grand jury panel was about full and
thirty-four of the thirty-six petit jur
ors were present. Solicitor Wilson
gave out a number of indictments
and Judge Townsend delivered a
very brief charge to the grand jury.
in substance as follows:
"Gentlemen of the g-and jury-I
will not detin you with any lengthy
charge. The bills handed you will
show the offence with which each
person is charged, and if you need
any special instruct ons and will let
it be known I shall be pleased to in
struct you. The indictments have
been carefully drawn by the Solici
tor, and give the names of all the
witnesses. Your duty is simply to
decide who should be put on trial.
You are not to weigh evidence or
anything of that kind, but simply to
say whether or not from an examina
tion of the witnesses, the parties in
dicted should be made to answer for
the crimes with which they are
charged. I have no doubt you were
fully charged at a former term of
court and I therefore need not take
up any further time with a lengthy
charge. Retire, 4r. Foreman, with
The grand jury made the following
returns on bills:
Ben Moore, indicted for house
breaking and larceny. True bill.
Willie Mitchell, larceny. True bill.
George Geddy, assault of a high
and aggravated nature. True bill.
Abram Holmes, assault and battery
with intent to kill. True bill.
Noel McDonald, housebreaking
and larceny. True bill.
Albert Jones, alias George Jones,
breaking and entering box car with
intent to steal. True bill.
The first case tried was that of
Sam Thigpen,for shooting a negro by
the name of Eugene Richbourg. This
case was tried at the last term of the
court and resulted in a mistrial. He
was defended this time by Major A.
Levi, and the jury returned a verdict
of not guilty.
Willie Mitchell plead guilty of the
charge of grand larceny, stealing a
bicycle, and was sent up for nine
months in the penitentiary or the
same time on the chain gang.
George Geddy was tried upon the
charge of assault and battery of a
high and aggravated nature. George
is well known in Manning, where he
has been a common offender, and he
and the town council have had fre
quent transactions of a more or less
unpleasant nature. He had an array
of ebony-hued damsels of Manning's
third or fourth caste to testify in his
behalf. George was not altogether
in a new role and conducted his own
defense. He made a speech to the
jury, and while the Solicitor had
nothing to say to the jury, they
found him guilty nevertheless, and
George was given $25 or thirty days
on the chain gang.
Abram Holmes was tried for assault
ana battery with intent to kill and
found guilty. Judge Townsend gave
him fifteen months in the Peniten
tiary or a like period on the County
Albert Jones, alias John Jones, was
also disposed of. He was charged
with breaking open a freight car and
stealing a lot of calico, and was found
guilty. He was given three years in
the Penitentiary, or a like period on
the public roads of the County. Sup
ervisor Owens ought to get some val
uable services out of him during this
Noel McDonald plead guilty to the
indictment for house breaking and
larceny, and he was given six months
at hard labor on the County's chain
gang or the same time in the State's
big institution on the Congeree.
Court convened at 9:30 o'clock.
The case of the State against Ben
Moore was quickly disposed of. He
was arraigned upon the charge of
housebreaking and larceny. He ac
knowledged the crime and was sent
up for six months in the penitentiary
or the usual alternative on the pub
lic roads of the County.
Bench warrants were issued for
Willie McFaddin and Robert Rush,
charged with housebreaking and
larceny in Salem.
The case of the State vs. Willie
Prince, alias Willie Cooper, which
was tried in his absence at the Octo
ber term of the Court upon the
charge of assault and battery with
intent to kill and upon being con
vited was sentenced by Judge Ben
ett to five years imprisonment, was
then called. The defendant has
since been arrested and was in jail.

rather be at home looking after their
