THROUGH A WRIT OF ERROR.
Dispensary Law May be Brought iiefore
the Federal Supreme Court.
ConLUnrA, S. C., January 20.-It is
stated on good authority that the dis
pensary law will be taken before the
federal supreme court next week. It
has not yet been definitely decided how
the matter will be brought to the at
tention of the court, but the under
- standing now seems to be that it will
be through a writ of error, and if such
be possible it will be upon the feature
of the law which forbids the introduc
tion of liquor into the state except with
the certificates of the commissioner.
It is hold that this feature of the law
Is generally considered unconstitution
al and that it will give the best grounds
for the writ to the supreme court. It
is stated that the case will be present
ed by Messrs. Cloft & Chaffee, on the
part of the city of A iken, and Messrs.
Douglass & O'Bear, who have recently
been employed to look after the case
by Mayor Dargan, of Darlington.
The stato authorities have been look
ing for such an attack on the law for
some time, and seem to appreciate the
fact that this is about the most vulner
able feature of the act, especially as it
bears upon the federal inter-state laws.
WHERE TOBACCO STANDS KING.
Marvelois Growth of the 'lobacco Indus
try in Nouth Carolnsia.
CHARLEsTON, 8. C., Jauuary 20.-The
News and Courier publishes today a
special tobacco edition, showing the
marvelous development of the tobacco
growing industry in the Pee Doe sec
tion of South Carolina in the last few
years. The fullest details are given as
to the method of cultivation, the varie
ties of seed best adapted to the soil;
the cost of production and the protits
on the crop, and the experience of a
large number of tobacco planters is re
lated to show that tobacco isking. To
bacco growing is a flourishing industry
throughout the Pee Dee sect ion of the
state, but it has had its most successful
and satisfactory developments in Dar
lington connty, to which the News and
Courier's review is largely confined.
Ten years ago not one pound of to
bacco was grown in South Carolina for
market. Last year one million pounds
were raised and marketed in Darling
ton county alone.
