DISPENSARY INVESTIGATING COM.
MITTEE SAYS CHARGES ARE
UNFOUNDED.
CHARLESTON GRAFT SYSTEM
The Committee Says it Was Misled by
Thomas B. Felder of Atlanta.-All
Concerned Were Exonerated-Char
ges of Governor Were Unsupported.
Columbia.-The report of the spe
cial committee' to investigate the
charges made by the governor in 1911
against the Ansel wind-up commis
sion, J. Frazier Lyon, former attor
ney general, and others was received
in the senate, read in the house, and
ordered printed in the journals.
They do not sustain a single charge
made by the governor in his special
message sent to the general assembly
in 1911.
The majority report is signed by
Senators Carlisle, Sullivan and Clifton
and Representatives J. J. Evans and
W. L. Daniel, while a minority report
signed by Representative Cary agrees
in the findings of the majority with
the exception of the testimony taken
in Augusta and afterward in Colum
bia which Mt. Cary does not think is
relevant.
The report, with the exception that
B. F. Arthur when a member of the
Ansel commission overcharged the
state, says.. of the charges made by
Gov. Blease, that they are "wholly
unsupported by the testimony and
therefore without foundation in fact.
Attorney General Lyon and the mem
bers of the Ansel commission, Dr. W
J. Murray, chairman; J. _S. Brice
Avery Patton, John McSwain, A. N
Wood, are exonerated of all charges
made against them.
"Your committee also had a meet
In T' Charleston and as a result 01
that testimony and other testimony
along the same " e taken in Colum
bia we are convinced tot a regular
system of graft exists and hay
for years in that city in connection
with the work of the dispensary con
stables," says the majority commit
tee's report.
The committee thinks that Thos. B
Felder of Atlanta misled them in his
statements about what his tesmcn3
would show, when the committee went
to Augusta, Ga.; last summer to takE
his testimony. They, however, went
to Augusta as they thought something
would be gotten from Felder and as
,he. would not come to the state be
cause 'he feared arrest and possible
assassination. But his testimony'. es
tablished nothing in the report of the
committee.
The majority of the report 1 a re
petiticn of the charges made by the
govers or and the refuting of then
secticn by section from the testimony
adduced, all of which is made a par'
of the report.
State Baptists Plan Sanatarium.

Carolina are planning the erectica o:
a santarium costing several hundred
thousand dollars and a committee hay
ing the matter of a location in char
and the raising of the funds, was ap
pointed by the last Baptist State Con
vention. Several towns in the statE
have made bids for the locaticn of this
institution and a committee is now
busy going over each propos'driste
and its advantages. Interest in. the
matter has been further increased by
a bill which has been intrc~need ir

ville to incorporate the "South Caro
lina Baptist Hospital," which will be
the official name of the sanitarium.
South Carolina New Enterprises.
