make thbe same rule as to South Caroli- lif

LSpecial to News and Courier.]
COLUMBIA, April 17.-.To-morrow
the town council of Chester will make
its return in the case brought by Major
Hamilton to require the town author
ities of Chester to issue annual license
for the sale of liquor. Mr. Paul Hemp
bill, who represents the municipal
authorities has been in consultation all

that the return will be ready-before to

it the caee may not be heard of for- a

From time to time doubts have been
expressed as to the correctness of the
law as published, and the rumors have
gone so far as to suggest that there was
something wrong with certain parts of
the bill. This morning, through the
kindness of Capt. Brooks, I had the
opportunity of looking over the Act as
passed by the General Assembly. To
begin with, the bill is in very much of
a dilapidated condition and shows that
it had a hard road on its trayels through
the two houses of the General. Assem
After a pretty careful examination it
s safe to say that the title, if rnot hing
more, is different in the bill as adopted
from what it is in the A cts as published.
In every part of the* bill and on the
amepdments, as noted by the Speaker
f the House and President of the Sen
te, the word "permitted" is used in
the title of the bill, while in 'the official
Acts as published the word "provided"
is used in place of the word "per
mitted." I do not know what the law
is on this point, but it may prove an
interesting qu.-stion. I would take a
great deal or time to compare the rest
f the bill and look over the numerous
amendments to see if here is any diff'er
wce in any other part of the bill.
