IN DISTILLERY CASE
Demand of Commission on tttornej
General Brings Cp Interesting Ques*
Columbia, .May 2L' -The dispensary
commission lias made what is consid
ered a most unusual request upon At
torney General Lyon. This request has
not b?en made officially, yet it has
been announced to the press and is
expei ted to reach the attorney general
today. About the only business left
for the new dispensary commission Is
the settlement of the Rlchland distill-;
ing case, which involves a Judgment
of about $700,000. Not more than
$25,000 will ever bp collected of this;
The unusual situation is:
The dispensary commission recent
ly named by the governor, immediate
ly, and in acordance with the views
of the chief executive, dismissed the
Atlanta firm of lawyers, Anderson.
Felder. Wilson and Roundtree.
This firm had been at work for
several years on the Rlchland dis-1
tilling case and were In a position to
collect a large amoutn of the judg
ment of $700,000. The firm, had spent
much money in collecting evidence as
to the owners of the Rlchland Dis- I
tilling" Company, and a settlement was
pending when the dismissal order was
Issued. The new commission now |
asks ihe attorney general to bring
suit against the company for the re.
covery of the above amount. II. L.
Abney of Columbia a:id W. F. Pto\ ?n
son of Cheraw bad been employed by
tho Atlanta firm to assist in the Rich
land distilling case.
The new dispensary commission new
asks the attorney general to engage
Mr. Abney and Mr. Stevenson In ihe'
ce.se. The general opinion is that it
would be unethical for the two named
attorney.; f Miter the case after tho
firm by which they were employed j
has been dismissed. The commission
also requests thai the Atlanta firm
give all information in their posses
sion as to the ease. This very in
formation was what the Atlanta firm
was bcini; paid for and which the
Atlanta firm spent money to collect.
The property of the Rlchland Dis- I
tilling Company of this city is in the!
hands of a receiver and will go to the
State hy default because no owner
has appeared to defend the claim. The
property is valued at about $35,000
and this amount will be all that will
ba collected.?The State.
