W. J. Murray, chairman; Messrs J.
Steele Hrlce, of Yorkvllle; Avery Pat
ton, of Greenville; John McSween, of
Tlinmonsville, have all been search
lngly examined, and the testimony has
shown that the commission, together
with the Attorney General and his as
sociates, took charge of a bankrupt
dispensary and save the State of South
Carolina some $500,000 as a result of
the business acumen theso gentlemen
possessed. The Ansel commission
was composed of five of the very best
men In South Carolina, men of honor
and integrity and inspired by tho
highest motives. They did their work
with an eye single to tho best inter
est of the State.
I.yen's Efforts Rewarded.
The examination last week proved
again that Attorney General Lyon, in
the face of tremendous odds, made
good his campaign promises to run
down the "grafters and unmoved by
threats and not stopping when faced
by odds which would have daunted a
[ less brave and patriotic man, he went
along in his course, showing up the
frauds with which the old dispensary
reeked and doing his part to bring to
justice those who had taken part in
the defrauding and cheating the State
through overcharges, paying rebates
and the many other lawless courses
now a matter of history and which
have been told on every stump and in
every home In South Carolina. The
examination so far has been a com
plete and triumphant vindication of nil
these gentlemen and impressed upon
the people of the State the work which
The committee will resume its In
vestigations next Thursday, at which
time other witnesses will he examined.
Everyone who In any way was con
orned, or was supected of having been
'verned, or who Is thought to have
any knowledge of any matters con
nected with the old dispensary, will be
brought up to testify. The probe will
be thorough and the country will be
ransacked for possible witnesses. The
purpose is to make this investigation
so complete that no other will be ne
cessary or desired.
Felder will be Called.
T. B. Felder, the Atlanta attorney
whose detective work uncovered the
evidence which enabled the commission
to recover the overcharges from the
various liquor houses which had dealt
with tho old State dispensary, will be
subpoened to appear and tell what he
knows. In sensational letters to the
press last year he charged the Gov
ernor of the State with having had
dealings with tho old dispensary and
he will be given an opportunity, not
only to tell all this, but to present his
proof and proof is what he will bo
The investigating committee was
created by the legislature at. its ses
sion in 1911, in response to a mes
sage from Governor Blease making
certain charges against the then wind
ing-up commission and calling on the
legislature to investigate them. Sub
sequently he vetoed tho Act creating
the committee and "fired" the Ansel
winding-up commission, appointing
others to take their places. The Act
was passed over the veto at the ses
sion this year and the committee wns
formed and ordered to proceed with
Blease Refuses to Appear.
Govornor Please, when he "fired" the
Ansel commission, charged them with
Incompotency, and In the testimony
last week tho members of that com
mission denounced the Governor's
charges as false and outrageous, anfl
condemned him strongly because he |
refused to appear and substantiate the
charges he made against them. Mr. J.
Steele Ikiee, a member of the Ansel
commission, characterized Governor
Uleaso as the worst Governor since
Franklin J. Moses; nnd Dr. W. .T. Mur
ray, the chairman of the Ansel com
mission, said that Governor Mease
"wasn't lit to brush our shoes,". Like
expressions wore used in tho bitter de
nunciation ho received at their hands.
Governor Blease has refused to have
anything to do with tho committee and
said that he didn't want to be bothered
with them.?News and Courier.

She had tried doctors and patent
medicines without results and had
about given up hope when the won
derful power of the famous Root
Juice treatment became known.
The startling story of her recovery
Is best told In her own words, taken
from a signed statement which she
recently gave out. Regarding her
case Mrs. Schondell says: "I was un
able to move and had to be carried
from ono place to another. After try
ing doctors and medicines without
success, I began using the. Root Juice
and can say that when I had taken
two bottles I was able to walk with
