The people of Anderson 1 ouniy who
are behind the agitation for the re
turn of the dispensary will soon have
to show their band. The law says
that ?TI order to spniir? on election

j the signatures of at least one-third
jf tho qualified voter? of the county
must be presented to the supervisor
before the first day of Mayfl'Tf that

derstood that the people in favor of tho
dispensary are binding all their en
orgies to getting the required num

of this month. The general opinion
seems to bc that thu whiskey people
may succeed in getting a sufficient
number of signors but will not be abjc
to carry the election.
I Campaign liait
The fact that "clean-up and palnt

success ia evident on every side. An

worked so hard in making the idea
popular here. Houses have been 1
painted, yards have been cleaned up, !
offices shine as they never did before,
and on the whole the campaign has
been a great success. The week will
come to u close tonight and it ia to
be hoped that every property owner,
neglected thus for of the work, will
grasp the opportunity today lo clvnu
up hts premises and let tomorrow
morning (find Anderson the cleanest
town in the State.

due to thc fact that a hard rain was
