The Dispensary Law Enjolnetf*
Judge Gort, at Clarksburg, W. V., on
motion of Caldwoll & Pope, of Now
berry signed an order restraining the
Dispensary authorities of this Btato
friom^.pij^cibg tho law as it affects in
terstate eommorco until the 2d, May.
At that timo tho hearing of tho motion
to mako tbo injunction pormanont will
be had at Columbia. In tho mean
while all porsons so desiring aro at 11b
orty to ordor Into tho Stato any liquors
they desire to import. Railroads, ox
press companies and other common car
ters aro at liborty to bring them in.
Of course, should the injunction bo dis
solved indictments would follow; but,
as In tho caso of a lynching it is an
awkward bushiness indieting a county
or tho wholo Stato. It will devolvo
upon tho Attorney Gonoral to repre
sent tho State. As tho present Gover
nor is tho author of tho law ho is pre
sumed to know moro about it than any
body else, but it would bo out of all re
gard for dignity for thoGovornor to go
into a scramble llko that of a common
law wrangle in tho Court Houso, and
somebody olso must bo employed to as
sist the Attornoy Gonoral.
But seriously, (for oursolvos spoak
ing) we think tho injunction ought to
stand. In tho end tho foaturo of tho
law interfering with interstate com
merce will never bo mado to hold wa
ter and it might as woll bo sustainod
now as hereafter, in the present case,
Dunbar, of Nowborry, is tho Plaintiff,
but thero must bo a strong pecuniary
backing bohlnd him as lltogation in
the Fedoral Courts roquiros to "put
money in thy purse."

It has heon suggested that the Till*

If all tho pooplo in the Ctato wero of

And the danger is great. As tho
Stato well puts it, a groat body of

There is a gonoration coming on that

Spring Is full of terrors to all whose

sudden changes of temperature and
other insalubrltlos of tho season. To

They say that ono-half of tho world
don't know how tho othor half livos.?
And it is curious what impressions got
currency abroad among our noighbors.
Outsldo tho State, it is bellovcd that a
social rovolution has takon placo In
South Carolina within a few years, that
an ellcto Bourbon dynasty has been
overthrown; that tho people now roign:
that a popular govornment now sub
sists and that salaries aro reduced to a
lovol with agricultural prices. Wo fear
many of our countrymen labor under
tliis delusion. Among tbo big Stato
ofticor8 in Tillman's tlmo wcro those
whoso fathers, whoso uncles, cousins
and aunts woro chronic olllco holders
in tho good old bourbon days. You
can 8carco lind a high olllcinl, Judge or
othorwiso in this Stato, whoso kin has
not belonged to the olllco grabbing
families. The law of heredity need bo
dlsnUB8ed no further.
It has boon urged for four years in
this paper that all our woos, hard lines
and hard times, grow out of fiscal and
financial laws of tho gonoral Govern
ment. That the difficulty was not in Co
lumbia. And yot wc may lind a dem
agogue still who can lay tho hard t imes
on a Columbia ring, tbo Columbia club,
a mythical Bourbon, or a system which
gives a Judge $3,(300 a year.
Gov. John Gary F.vahs has been in
terviewed about tho Barnwell -Tillman
compromise. It was merely a funny
gamo, a finger bet, and tho wngor be
ing impossible of delivery was not in
tended to bo paid. Neither party to
tho compact was in a condition to de
liver tho goods. A sort of gambling in
Governor Fvans expects to go to tho
Constitutional Convention, if wanted
by his county, so ho is roportcd. He
states further that Senators Irby and
Tillman will bo delegates, and that
Wilson of Spartanburg ought to bo one.
Having arranged tho casto and figured
at tho rehearsals, it would bo awkward
for tho stock aotors to bo absent.
Of tho oight Circuit Judges, six got
$:i,500, two $3,000. Of tho three Su
premo Court Judgos, tho Chiof Justice,
Mclvor, gots $4,000, Popo and Gary
each $3.500. Tho stuff is handed over
at the end of each month. This is the
case with every mothers' son of thorn
all tho blgolllcers.
"Pools rush in whore angols fear to'
tread.",, Tho woods aro full of people
who aro assured that, thoy can make a
Constitution for this Stato and com
pose all hor differences, for all time,
without a second thought.
Senator Tillman blunders when he
says that "democrat" is no longer
name to "conjure with." Some aro still
beguiled with tho notion that Tillman
is a democrat.
Soino throe hundred cases of cocktails
have been ordored by tho State Dispen

Chauncey Doimjw, a loarnod railroad
gentleman, politician, post-prandial
orator and New York gentleman at
largo speculates that Hampton and
Butler may knock for admission into
the Republican household. Specula
tion don't cost unything- and It Is pure
innocence and ox uberaueo of the milk
of human kindness in Dr. Doncw.
Hampton belonged to a race of light
ers who landed in this country .erne
bundrods of yoars back and stoutly bat
tlod with tha savagCB for this goodly
land. His great uncles and aunts wero
butchered in Spartanburg and are
thero buried, in ovory war in which
this country has been engagod his fath
ers wore foromost for tho honor of tho
State. Tho gamo may bo truly said of
the Butlers. Of tho sixty thousand
men the Stute, sont to tho front in tho
sixties, these wero recognized as tho
bravest of tho bravo and mado their
houorod leadors. Thoy have always
fought with equal bravery in tho ranks
of tho democracy. They will dio
democrats. It is true that a genera
tion has eomo In this State that knows
them not, but a generation will come
fiat will cherish their bones and to
high character and achlovemout the
lives of Hampton and Butler will be

Douglas & Obear, Washington law
yers, recently of this State, are instit
uting in tho federal Courts proceedings
to test the validity of tho States' Reg
istration laws. Judgo GolT, of tho
Federal Court of Appeals has granted
a temporary injunction restraining tho
Supervisor of Rlchlund County from
exercising his oilice. It Is presumed
that the Attornoy General of this Stale
will represent Groon, tho Supervisor.
If the Injunction is made permanent by
Goll's ordor, on a hearing at an early
day, the caso will bo appealed to the
Federal Supreme Court and thero an
end. As wo have said before and now
reiterate, tho twelve labors of poor
Hercules wero holiday jobs to tho task
of the Attorney Gcnoral of this State.
Hercules had broad shoulders liko At

tho Jittlo planeton which wo arc cutting
up high jinks.
Americans abroad had a dinner the
other evening at London. Minister Bay
ard presided and made a sensible speech
Fastis, our minister to France, spoke
like a taU follow in true provincial
style, as a man full of himself and of
something better. Now wo may listen
to hear it remarked that ho is taken
from too far South.

Murray, Treasurer of Alken Coun

On his trial for embezzlement the jury

steal, was beguiled of the money by
smarter friends, and accordingly white
washed him with a verdict of not

Gov. Evans expresses himself in the

in procuring tho GolY injunction. But

appoint Gen. McCrady as assistant
counsel to assist in defending our
registration laws before tho Federal

to call himself a democrat. Truth is

Harris Lithia Water.
TJm^most remarkable Water on the Market to-day ..which is
ShowlrbyTfs^A"na1 yins and Testimonials of the Most
Noted Physicians of the Country.
Read what a prominent merchant of Columbia, S. C, has to Kay for
Harris Lithia Water.
"I had long been affected with kidney troubles. I had tried all the
mineral waters from Saratoga to Porter Springs. I had tried the
Western waters and all others that I could bear of, and I have no hesi
tancy in saying that none have benefited me even approximately as
much as the Harris Lithia Water. I was using the Buffalo Lithia Water
when I heard of this. I do not expect to use the Buffalo Water again.
"When I went to Harris Lithia Springs, 1 bad to be assisted out of
my chair. Alter remaining two weeks I could get about as'good as
anybody. It acted on me like a charm?quickly and effectively. This
water is now being largely sold in Columbia, and I think every person
who has tried it will agree with me in the belief that it is the most re
markable water in the country. From a simple interest in Buffering hu
manity, I would like very much to see it given a trial.

Mr. J. T. Harris:
VVe have been selling the Harris Lithia Water for sonic time, and
lind it a ready seller; those who have tried it arc .loud in its praise. The
doctors here regard it superior to either the Buffalo or I.oiidrfnderry
Waters. We predict for it a wonderful sale when the merits become
more generally known.
Yours very truly, RAVSOR & SMITH,

Mr. J. T. Harris:
I have been under the treatment of several physicians, and been to
different watering places during the last ten years for kidney disease. It
1 (lords me pleasure to say that I have received more*benefit from the
use of Hnriis Lithia Water than all remedies combined.
