Our Liquor Traffic.
After recent and notable revelations
of crookedness in our (as a State) liquor
traffic, dlsolosod after many days, the
Board of Control of which Hon. Wille
Jones, Banker, Is Chairman ordered
an official Investigation. That inves
tigation was held at Columbia, cover
ing the working hours of last Wed
nesday. Gov. Evans and his brother,
B. B. Evans, Col. Mixon, the Commis
sioner, Seoretary of State Tompkins,
J. W. Mixon and W. T. Mixon, sons of
the Commissioner, and Scruggs, (what
a name) Secretary of the Board were
called as witnesses or volunteered.?
According to Soruggs, he traced re
bates as having reached the pockets
of the Mixon boys, $2,669.46. to W. T.
Mixon and $690.00 to James. Ono of
the Mixon "boys" got a diamond pin,
which he Is wearing, and Col. Mixon a
pitcher and two cups. Whether they
were of silver or gold or suoh as the
sweet Hebe or delloate Ganlmede
handled In the days of nectar docs not
appear. Ono striking foaturo of tho In
vestigation was tho watohing oaoh
Other like hawks on tho part of Gov.
Evans and "his" Seoretary of State,
Tompkins. Really, little was de
veloped except as published by Gov.
Evans In his little book of revelation
on the eve of tho Primary Election.
Enough however was brought out to
leavo room for speculation as to much
looseness and possibly great rascality
in the oonduot of this moral branch of
the State's business. Nobody will bo
surprised. The system Is honey
combed with rascality. The doors in
viting to fraud aro as wide open as the
blue vault of the hoavons. By tho
way, Mixon hlmsolf is mado of heroic
Stuff. According to hid own showing
the agents of tho groat liquor houses
tempted him with bribes day in and
day out. Yet his vlrtuo was suoh as
would shame a Cato. Tho Board of
Control was represented by the Attor
ney Goneral of the State. Col. Mixon
had as his bottle holder and champion
an acute and loarnod gentleman of tho
Columbia Bar. Owing to tho groat
dignity of the parties intorostod, tho
proceedings wore marked by tho most
delloate and gingerly manners of all
concerned, the exquisite tenderness of a
pink tea funotlon characterising the
bearing of the lofty personages. Li

Has not socio ono calculated that a
sixth part of the memoirs of St. Simon
in tho origiual is ocoupiod with tho
controversy whether or not tho presi
dont of parliament should wear his hat
or put it en tho desk when performing
various functions? At lougth the mat
ter was compromised. Tho Tiers-ctat
should wear a chapeau rabattu, which
had tho slouched brim pinned up. This
childish qnarrel was romcmbored, no
doubt, whon tho states general met aud
the king harangued them. His speech

did likewise, according to their privi
lege. Tho comTTio'iV) had no suoh claim,
but they also clapped on thei* cbapean*

nobles. Tho revolution might havo he

Bnt slouched hats had already caused
a riot hi Spain, which lasted so long
and cost so many lives that it might al
most bo termed a civil war. This was
30 years earlier. Charles III thought
them untidy. Ho thought tho streets of
his enpifal untidy also and denounced
both eyesores in an odiot. Every Spaniard
henceforth must pin up his flopping
brim, and every householder of Madrid
must, clean t-he street opposite his prem
ise*. Forthwith the people rose. Thoy
wcro little interested, comparatively, in
the streot cleaning, but thoy would die
for f heir hats. And a good many of them
did, but not unnvonged. More than a
week the fray lasted, but it was thought
remarkable by foreign observers that at
53 p. m. regularly tho soldiers plied,
arms, tho furious Citizens withdrew
and silonoo reigned for ono hour. Both
parties wero enjoying the siesta, oxcept,
perhaps, tho wounded. After that inter
val they recommenced. Tho king fled,
and for tho rest of h'is lifo ho never re
turned to Madrid willingly. In fact, it
was understood ho designed to make Se
ville the capital henceforth, and only
gave np the project when his ministers
showed him what a vast sum ho had
already spent on tbo now pulaca So,
mighty may be tho influence of the hat

down early in tho fighting of his corps,
which ho was leading for tho first time
in battle. The circumstance of his doatii
was one of those trivial ones which
make certain phases of war seem oruolly
murderous. There had boon some hard
fighting on tho lino whore Mansfield
brought np his Twelfth corps to support
the attack of Booker's corps. Tho po
sitions of*the friendly troops nlready in

that there was uouo at hand to point out
the nit nation on that part of tho field.
The advance troops of the Twelfth
began firing across tho field, and their
loader, supposing that thoy wero shoot
ing down their friends of another com
mand, beckoned thorn to cease firing.
The men, however, were certain that
they were makiug targets of tho enemy,
and not understanding tho general's sig
nals continued to shoot. Mansfield thou
rode througli tho front lino and passed
along revei a I companies of the Tent h
Maina When ho ordorod tho mon to
ceaso firing, somo of tho officers told him
that tho troops who wero suffering woro
graycoats and that somo of thorn wero
at that moment training their rifles up

and was hit with a mortal wound boforo

cigar anil other luxuries in which he indulges. The daughter
asks lather, or guardian, to buy an Instrument to enable her to
cultivate that beautiful talent, music. Does any sane man not
reli/.c this a reasonable right to plead and ask for? Reflect a minute !

hours employed in practice by wife and daughter, and of their glowing
anticipations subsequently to be realized,
