PARR SHOAILS CASE
TO BE WITHDRAWN
War Department. Issues Instructions.
Washington, Aug. 0.-Nothing more
will be done with regard to the re
noval of .Parr 'Shoals dam.
Some time ago when it became
known that instructions had been sent
from the department of Justice at
Washington to IDistrict Attorney Fran
Dis H. Weston at Columbia to insti
tute proceedings for the removal of
Parr Shoals dam, those interested in
preserving the dam took the matter
ilp with Washington in the hope that
iction might be deferred. if not entire
ly abandoned, looking to the dam's re
noval. Certain influential citizens of
"olumbia came .to Vashington and
saw officials of both the department
Df Justice and the war department re
Ltarding the matter and one of thc
most interested of all in the (amii11
preservation was Senator Dial. Re
iently Assistant Attorney General
Herron of the department of justiet
said that he had asked the war depart
Iment for a rehearing. Today Sienator
Dial announced that the reteariny
wotild be held, and uipon the mattet
being followed l) an( more inforna
tion being secured, it was ascertainei
that it .is highly improbable that this
will be (lone, inasmuch as the war de.
partient has instructed the depart
ment of Justice to abandon the entire
matter and to inform District Attorney
We.ston to this effect. This mean
that there will be no court case, that
