T. H. Polder Requested to Send In In
forniiitlon Glass Company Xol !><?
Following an executive session yes
terday tlie new dispensary commis
sion gave out a letter that had boon
addressed to the Atlanta firm of law
yers, Anderson, Felder, Rouildtreo &
Wilson, in which the contract with
the linn is disoussad. The conimis.
Slon requests T. Ii. Felder to appear
before the body and tell what he
knows of the dispensary situation. The
commission admits that it has no pow
er to force Mr. Felder to appear, so
the simple request is made. This let
tor is in answer to a letter recently
sent to the commission by the Atlan
ta firm in which certain statements
were made with reference to the con
tract held with the State of South Car
olina in the settlement of the affairs
of the old State dispensary.
In Session Several l>a>*.
The commission has been in sest Ion
for several days. It was announced
by the secretary that no decision had
been reached in the Carolina (Mass

commission to reconsider tho action
of the old commission ami return

county from the dispensary, it was
also stated that no linn of attorneys
bad been named to Inkt the place of
the Atlanta linn.
So far as could be learned no other
business was transacted during Um
three days sitting exccpl the writing
of the lattor to Anderson, Felder.

stoutest spirits, rain falling heavily,
and the Capital Square beneath us

poor wet bishop and the President
elect came upon the stand, there was
an immediate portentous hush in the
crowd, one heard nothing but the
batter of the winter rain. The brief
ceremony over, when President Davis
kissed the book, accepting under God,
the trust of our young and struggling
nation, a great shout went up ami we
distinctly heard cries of "Qod bless
our President." That evening Presi
