JUDGE POPE'S ORDER,
Elsewhere in this issue appears an
order from Chief Justice v. f. Pope

Lau re iis county notifying them to ap
pear before tho Supremo Court ne.:t
Saturday ami show cause why they
should not !>>? enjoined against hold
lug an (lection on the dispensary ls
Bue as set for November the third.
The order was Becured by uttorney
.lohn M. Cannon, in behalf of the ?
Laureus County Dispensary Board?
ami the members individually: asso
ciated with Mr. Cannon are his part-,
ner. Mr. H. s. Blackwell, and th<- Rrn
of Blense and Dominlck of Newberry.
As will he noted from the reading
of the petition upon which was based
the idea for the order thore art Sei
forth four grounds wh) an election
should not be hold and Upon which
the restraining order should be issti d.
[These points will he discussed in the
hearing at Columbia. Saturday. in
the Brst place, the validity of the
Carey-Cothran law which provides
[ for the election is attacked in that the
legislature which enacted that law
I was not legally elected, because the
registration provided tor by the con
stitution had not been done. Next.
[ the signers of tin- petition upon which
Supervisor Humbert issued the order
of election were not then qualitled
electors according to the new regula
tions; the number of hoxes provided
for is illegal; and further that the
petition was not signed by one-fourth
tho electors in the county.
We lay no -claims to great knowl
edge of tlie law m>r are we able to
foretell (he decision of a court. Put it
is our opinion thai the Supreme Court
of South Carolina will give little con
sideration c? any of the points in the
petition except the one in reference
to the number of signers to the peti
tion calling for an el eel ion. And If
that petition docs not .contain the re
quired number of names the election
should not be held. We desire an
expression of the will of the people,
hut it should be in strict conformity
to the law. And yet we regret to see
that there are those who will employ
far-fetched technical points in order
to prevent this expression of the peo
ple's will. They want to save the
dispensary; of course they do. And
they, at least the majority of them,
claim they are democrats. The peo
ple of the county should is- able by
