(VIes List of Places that have been
Raided Since Law Enforcement
Columbia, May U.-Nearly 6,000 bot
ties of beer have been seized by the
Charleston police since the law en
forcement campaign was begun, ac
cording to reports filed by Mayor John
P. Grace with Gov. Alanning. The
Charleston mayor forwarded the re
PQrts of James R, Cantwell, chiec of
pollee, without comment. Gov. Man
ning refused to discuss the report by
the Charleston mayor.
The following repo'rts have been
transmitted by Mayor Grace of Char
leston to Gov. Manning:
"Charleston, S. C., April 26, 1915.
"Hon. John P. Grace, Mayor, City.
"Dear Sir: lin reply to your re(uest
for the record of this department in
complying with your order for the
enforcement of the law, I beg to ad
vise that three squads and detective
departmcnt assigned to enforce same
have made 849 raids, confiscating and
delivering to the county dispensary
the following wines, liquorA, etc.: 5,
664 bottles of beer, 779 half pints of
whiskey, 310 quarts of whiskey, 5
quarts of wine, 6 gallons whiskey and
one-half barrel wine, ontaining 27 gal
Ions. In adidtion to this, 66 kegs of
beer were confiscated and emptied in
the sower, 60 were seized and demol
ished and all gambling has been sup
pressed, 43 places have discontinued
the illicit sale and all other have been
driven to cover and now resort to the
hip pocket practice and only keel)
sufficient stuff on the premises to
supply the immediate demands. They
replenish their stock from private res
idences in the locality under cover,
but by continually railding them they
will eventually have to go out of bus
iness. This department has coi
scientiously enforced the law and will
continue to do so, even though it ov
ertaxes the department by drafting
men from the line of protection to the
public in its eideav(ors to en1force the
law. Therefore, I will respectfully re
quest the atpointment of flve addi
tional men. TrustAg you will approve
of same, I am,

The next time Abbevilic has the
pleasure of having the Field Day
Excises, sonmc arranigenment should
be made so that everybody would
ha~Ve a chance to take a look at the
hz'ndsomne young men wvho dive the
"Tin-Pan-Nancys." There was no
place for them to perform last Fri
day excep~t the public1 s5(tare, andl
in or'der to 1)e sure that they wvere
"seen" it was necessary for scveral
of the prettiest boys in the crowd to
drive around sevbuteen or eighteen
times. Even at that, they could
not drive with any satisfaction to
themselves; somebody was always
getting in the way, making it neces
nary to blow the horn, and thus at
Another inconvenience which they
experienced was that they had to sit
uplright in the seat in orde~r to keep
from driving over someone. Now, a
young gentleman who wishes to show
the public some "stunts" in gliding
in one of these "means of transporta
tion" cannot get the right effect un
less he sticks his knees about eighteen
indbes above his head, and sits on his
shoulder biade3, He should also have
0on a white cloth hat (silk preferred)
ahaned towards thie top like A funnel;
one corner of his hat should be slight
ly tilted over the right eye, and a
cigarette "duck" should be in the west
win corner of his mouth. Obviously,
all these decorations cannot be look
ed after, where the gallant young
steerer must look out for some fifteen
hundred and sixty children, and three
or four thousand people who are in
town without any excuse except to see
the children and attend the exercises.
If the Teachers' Asosciation neets
WiVltt us again, wo hope the mayor and
chief of police will see that Som6
place is arranged for these important
personages, about ten miles from town,
where everybody so desiring may go
out and take a look at them, or else
toke some stels to see that the teach
ers and children of the county stay at
home in order to give thon a chance.
