(Senll John M. Cannon
Notary Public for South Carolina.
Attomo) Cannon Talks.
In an Interview Friday. Mr. John M
Cannon of the local bar. who is net
ing attorney for the county dlsponsar*
board In the proceedings to secure ail
Injunction against tue managers of
the November election, stated thai the
Construction placed by this cones
pondeiit on one point of the petition
upon which Judge Pope's oicler was
secured was not a point that would
be held or contended by the county
board; "but." said he, "if it takes Ihm
to win we will use it."
The point in question is the ap
parent discrepancy between the con
stltutlon of I89i*i and the Acl of Logli
lattire Of 1896. Mr. Cannon Mtnted
that the point raised in the petition
was to lay the foundation of the- sub
sequent clauses; that the general
election In November would not be af
fected because by the re-registration
beginning in July of this year, tin
very act of re-enrolling qualified all
such for electorship this fall. "Whih
there Im u fauM in the Act or the Leg
islature," sa;'! Mr. Cannon, 'it has
1 been r< thedlod by the new registration
lielice Hi" question of validity of the
election in November is not affected."
Mr. Cannon stated that the petition
Bubuiitted lo tin supervisor did not |
contain Blgm rs lo iho number of one
fourth of On qualified voters In the :
county; thni it lacked two names, not
oven striking on those names that sip- j
pea red more tbaq once in the several j
petitions presented. This statement
is in contradiction of the notice of
election publlslied by Supervisor Hum
bert, which Kays: "Upon a canvass of
the .aid petition I have found that It
, does contain the signatures of more
than one-fourth ol the qualified elec
tors of said county."
Furth) r In the conversation Mr.('tin- '
lion slated tl nl he had been criticised
for bringing thh action and for ap
pearing liehall of the dispensary.'
and added that he was contending for
a l'-gnl eb lion; thai "if they were go- J
lug to In ! : election let it he in ac
cordance with tile law on the subject."
