THE DISPENSER APPOINTED.
The County Board of Control Meet and
Appoint R. C. Maybin Dispenser
Has He a Majority of the Free
hold Voters to His Petition?
The county board of control for New
berry County held a meeting last Fri
day and appointed R. C. Maybin the
dispenser of liquors for this place. The
Herald and News stated two weeks ago
that he did not have a majority of the
free-hold voters to his list, and we have
no reason to change the opinion then
expressed. No doubt that the board
thinks otherwise, for we believe they
intended to act in accordance with the
The board held its session with closed
doors, or rather would not let but one
person appear before them at a time.
Several persons had requested that
their names be taken from the petition,
and in some cases Mr. Maybin had
been given notice before the petition,
was filed, and in one case he had
promised to take the name oft, but the
petition was filed with all the names
as originally signed, and the board
said they had an opinion from the
Attorney-General that a name could
not be taken off after the petition was
filed; so itistood. This will be a lesson
to some persons to be a little more care
ful in the matter of signing petitions.
The following is a paper presented to
the board at the meeting last Friday:
THEY ASK THESE NAMES WITH DRAWN.
To the Board of Control for Newberry Coon
ty-Gentlemen: You will find our names on
one or both of the applications for the ap
pointmentof a Dispenser for Newberry. A e
placed our names there undera misapprehen
sion, and we respectfully ask that they be
erased, as we are not willing to be regarded as
signers when you come to pass upon the ap
plicationq. Wm. P. HOUSEAL.

' Hos. E. EPTING.
R. C. WILLIAMs.
J. S. RuCssELL.
June 9, 1893.
A good many persons signed the peti
tion of Mr. Maybin thinking that it
was not also a petition for the estab
lishment of a dispensary. Mr. Epting
says that Mr. May bin promised him
that he would take his name off, but
did not do it. They were all need4d to
make the requisite number, and then
if the board had gotten a full and cor
rect list of the freehold voters of the
town he would not have the number,
even leaving on all the names that were
requested to be erased.
Mr. Sease, the clerk, enquired of the
Governor if any fee would be allowed
for looking up the correct list, and was
told that there was no provision for
any such allowance, but that the books
of the town clerk and county auditor
were the places from which to secure a
correct list of the freehold voters. No
one can blame the clerk for not caring
to look up the matter without pay, for
it involves a good deal of labor. But
in order to act intelligently it was nec
essary for the board to have a correct
list. They took and acted upon the
list procured from Mr. Fair, the town
clerk. That list, which we publish
below, contains 141 names. It is the
list gotton from Mr. Fair's book. It is
not complete and the board was told
of two ot three names of freeholA voters
that are not on it, but we presume that
for good and sufficient reasons they
did not use them. The following is
the list of freehold voters used by the

The Herald and News cares very
little about the matter one way or the
other, but it seems to us that the board
should have exhausted every available
means of procuring a complete and
correct list of the freebold voters, and
if neitner petition had the requsite
number should have followed the law
and let Newberry have prohibition
plain and simple, for it would have
been just as lawful under the act as to
have a dispensary. Mr. Perry's peti
tion seems not to have been considered
There are many people curious to
know just how the boa;d reached their
decision, so we publish again this week
the list of freehold voters upon which
the board base1 their action, and also
Mr. May bin's petition, as it was before
the board. On his petition are ninety
three names. Of these ninety-three we
find that on their list of freehold voters
twenty-two of them do not appear.

So then Mr.May bin has only seventy
one names of freehold voters aecorditg
to the official list of the board. That
will give him a majority of one. But
on the list of freehold voters will be
found the dames of L. W. C. Blalock
and Jas. L. Cannon. Mr. Blalock has
been in Riclinond, Va., since last Feb
ruary and is now a citizen of that city.
Cannon has been dead about two
months or longer. He then can hardly
be considered a citizen an<i freehold
voter of New berry. These two names
also appear on the petition of May bin.
Taking them from both lists will give
the number of freehohl voters 139, and
the number of freehold signers to Mr.
Maybin's petition sixty-ni' e. Unless
a citizen of Richmond and a dead man
are counted, it will be seen that, even
by the imperfect list of freehold voters
upon which the board acted, Mr. May
bin lacks one of having a mjority.
We have no criticism to make of the
action of the board, nor do we quest i)n
the fact of their having acted perfect I
in accord with the law as they saw it,
and we only call their attention to this
matter,- and ask if a citizen of Ricb
mond and a dead man can be con
sidered freeholder voters under the
provisions of the dispensary act. If it
were necessary we could name several
more freehold voters in the town of
Newberry. But the board has acted
and we presume that settles it for New
