(Special to News and Courier.j
coUMtA, June 2q.-The dispen
sary authorities were busy to-day for
arding liquor to Aiken, Lewiedale,
Lexington and Florence. The heavy
shipments of the past few days have
reHeved the pressure.
There were all kinds of rumors to-day
aout the failure of the dispensary to
- get-a supply of corn whiskey. The fact
i. that the regular supply is not yet in
the- dispensary. Some say that the
North CaroUna distillers will not credit
8the State. Last night a number of Ad
inistration men were in the city. It
has been suggested that they met for
Wtpurpoee of devising means to secure
th payment of the corn-whiskey bill.
SWhether sueh a plan was necessary, or
-whether It'was suggested, is not known
but a the same it is so rumored.
Tt IS further rumoied that a large
Charestoin firm has stood responsible
fr m"st of the other goods. This re
port was, however, denied in Charles
ton. The dispensary authorities insist
that they can get more credit than
they want, and their chief trouble is
pikw ng from overstocking them
Another rumor, in which there is,
perhaps, less foundation, is that Mr.
F. M Mixon is to be chief constable
under the dispensary law. Governor
rishTnnsays that be will not say any
thing about the appointment of con
_ites and that people can do all the
guesAng they care to.
Aonsgnment of cognac brandy and
-molassee rum was received to-day. No

DISTEIBUTING THE ARDENT.
[Speclal to News arid Courier.]
CoLMBIsA, June 29.-The dispen
- . sary is "hustling" things along to sup
ply the county dispensaries preparatory
to opening on the 1st of July. From
Sthe returns received by the State au
thorities there are at this time nine
teen counties that will have dispen
Y-- sies. This, of course, includes those
that are in dispute. In some of the
counties more than one dispensary will
be' opened 'at the start. Others it is
said, will follow.
UMrAWFUL ESTABISHMENT OF DIS
It is'a somewhat noteworthy fact
the question of the establishment of
the dispensaries in the larger towns is
1n dispute and that the action of the
county boards may result in bringing
about an injunction. Columbia, Green
yille, Darlington, Orangeburg and per
haps other places are puzzled over the
problem as to whether there is any use
to protest against the action of the
county boards. To say the least a good
case can be made out and there would
hardly be any trouble in securing an
injunction in Columbia.
The questlonr here- is, who will take
the Initial step ? Is it anybody's- busi
uns? and if it is, would there be any
r use to secure the injunction ? There is
a possibility of an appeal to the Courts.
The preliminary statements have been
V prepared, but if anything is to be done
remnains to be seen. It is suggested
that the case will bogtaken directly to
the Supreme Court, which is now in
A SUPPLY OF CORN wHISKEY.
Tihe bottling department at the dis
pensary was in operation to-day. Corn
whiskey was put up in bottles to suit
~ , the desires of the consumers. A very
great many half pint bottles were filled.
The corn whiskey used to-day came
tram North Carolina and was the bulk
"' of a shipment of about six' barrels.
The dispensary authorities evidently
do. not expect a heavy wine business,
as they have. made but little prepara
tions for that class of trade.
Te State cntables who are to look.
after tbe "blind tigers" and hang them
by the ear are being appointed daily
and given their instructions.

To PREVENT THE OPENING OF A
[Special to News and Courier.]
DARLINGTON, June 29.-The filrt
made by certain of our freeholders
against the appointment of Mr. J. B.
Floyd as a dispenser for this county,
which was reported in the News and
Courier to-day, has bad a most interest
After a careful examination C. S.
Nettles, who has: charge of the case,
deteriined to make the fight. He
argued the case before Judge Hudson
to-day at Bennetsville, and a tempo
rary injunction was granted, restrain
ing Mr. Floyd from openingthe dispen
sary until argument could be heard.
On Thursday next has been appointed
for the argument, when the case will
be heard in chambers at this place.
The principal point made by Mr.
Nettles -was that Mr. Floyd did
not have the names of a majo
rity of our freeholders signed to his
petition. The necessary papers will at
once be served, and when this is done
Darlington will be a dry town, at least
until the case is decided on Thursday
next, as the bars will, of course. be
closed on Saturday. Uuder these cir
.cumstances not even a State cocktail
can be had and Darlington will be a
dry town for the 41rst time in her his
The fight is the talk of the town just
now, and is exciting a great deal of
interest here. Most interesting develop
ments are expected soon, perhaps of a
surprising nature. -
SPARTANBURG WILL BE DRY.
[Special to The State.1
SPARTANBUro, June 29.-Spartan
burg will not have a dispensary-at
least,not for the present. The effort
to-get a sufficient number of signatures
to secure a State barroom has failed,
and after 12 o'clock Friday."night Spar
tanburg will be as dry as a bone-that
is, theoretically dry. Ten barrooms will
close, the city's income will be de
creased to the amount of $10,000 per
annum, and the blind tiger will hold
the fort. -
This city has'tried prohibition, and
found it a gignal failure. It is an inter
eiting fact that during the first
eleven months of prohibition here over
15,000 gallons of liquor were sold, from
which the city derived not one cent of
revenue. Whether Tillman's secret
police can improve on this remains to
be seen. -
GOING INTO THE COURTS.
[The State, 2ndl.
The long expected fightin the courts
as to the constitutionality of the dis
pensary law is at hand. Within a week.
the dispensary ship is likely to strike
a jagged rock. The rock-the Constitu
tion of the United States-has stood a
century. Will the liquor-logged vessel
be able to ride above it?
Here is what The State'a Washing
ton correspondent wired last night:.
WASHINGTON, July 1.-C. S. Nettles
is in the city. He went to Baltimore to
day and had atonference with Nicho
las Bond, a prominent attorney in that
city. Mr. Bond will be retained with
Mr. Nettles to fight the dispensary
Mr. Nettles was seen to-day, and said
that he could not as yet state on what
point the issue would be made, but
that it would come up within a week,
and would be brought before. the court
here. Mr. Nettles leaves for South
Carolina to-night, but will return in a
Mr. Bond will manage the case from
this end of the line.
THE E. & D. NOT COWED.
Along with this comes the news that
the Richmond and Danville road has
taised its battle-flag and will forthwith
see if the State dispensary law can
override the Intel--State Commerce law
of the United States. It is announced
that the employes of the road yester
day received instructions from. head
quarters to receive outside of South
Carolina any liquors or beer to be
shipped to parties in this State, in
whatever quantities; and to the em
ployes within the State to receive and
deliver the same.
The very first case of seizure or at
tempted interference on the part of the
State authorities will bring on the test
in the United States Courts.

table of contents, the State coat-of

"I'm readysto drink,

Yesterday was the fourteenth day of
the existence of little Joseph Grevert,
who is being kept alive by means of an
incubator at his parents' home, 315
East Twenty-sixth street. The child
has grown so rapidly the past week
that Tinsmith William G. Robinson

hole has been bored in the floor of the
room in which the baby lies, through
which a gas pipe is to be run to furnish
heat for the new incubator.
Young Joseph, who weighed only
two pounds at his birth, n.ow tips the
scales at three and a quarter pounds.
He has also grown several inches. He

INFANT MATRIMONY IN INDIA.
Pundit Chumoolon. Says Child Marriages
are a Curse and a Drawback to that
[New York Herald.j
Dr. Chumoolell, a pundit from Cal
cutta, who is visiting this country for
the purpose of attending the World's
Fair is at the Fifth Avenue Hotel, and
on Monday gave some very interesting
information about the state of his na
tive country and his countrymen.
"The people are quite content and
satisfied under the British rule," said
he, "Of course, the sentimental attach.
ment to the old regime has by no means
died away. There remains a feeling of
regret for the times of past greatness as
an independent race.
"Still, the domination of a foreign
nation has been so long an established
fact that pretty generally the existing
order of things is accepted and recog
nized by the natives, who quietly try
to derive as much benefit as possible
from the grafting of a new civilization
upon the oldest the world has ever
INFANTS GIVEN IN MARRIAGE.
"The great curse of India and the
greatest drawback to the. development
of my countrymen is, in my opinion,
the terrible child marriages that even
yet obtain in a very great measure. The
drain upon the vital energy and the
deterioration of the character of the
people caused by this fearful custom is
"WhEn you think that the females
are ordinarily married at ages ranging
from Infancy to nine years, that theage
of the husband varies in the same pro
portion, and that the average age of the
mother giving birth to the first child
is about ten years, you may picture a
few of the conseq:iences of this custom.
"I often think I can trace Its evil
effects in the languor of my countr
men, in their lack energy, of interest,
of ambition, and in their passive accep
tance of whatever is as the best. Cer
tainly these marriages, being made
without regard to the feelings of the
married couple, are very frequently the
source of lifelong unhappiness and un
doubtedly lead indirectly to much jrof
ligacy and to misery of many kinds.".
Dr. Chumoololl, who possesses very
decided views upon the subject, stated
as his opinion that Christianity had
not made the saisfctory progress its
believers and teachers Imagined.
"Many causes contributed to this,"
said he. "For ages long gone the va
rious Hindoo religions were a great
power. Still the natives were so habit
uated to them that in the course of
time belief in them would have become
a thing of the past through mere lack

'*European Interest in. the subject,
however, and the -insatiable curiosity
manifested by Western races in the
ancient philosophy of the Hindoos has
perhaps served to fan the dying embers
of these religions and to keep them
"In any case belief dies so slowly,
my countrymen are so conservative,
they change only after the lapse of a
great space of time, that I am inclined
to the opinion that European civiliza
tion will not become the civilization
of the Hindoo until there remains only
a fragment of the historic race of think
ers to whom the Westowes every'thing;
for, pardon me for reminding you, there
is very little that is original in your
"Theosgphy has also- retarded the
progress of the people toward the ac
ceptance of Christian doctrines. The
subtle influence of belief in manifesta
tions and interference from the spirit
ual world is very potent in causing
believers to take little interest in the
ordinary affairs of everyday life.
"But the influence of European asso
ciation wherever it has been allowed to
have full play has been of the utmost
benefit. The natural genius of the
Hindoo has been stimulated under the
influence of keen competition, engen
dered by the establishment in theIr
midst of European trading and manu
facturing firms. This has resulted in
the production and remarkable devel
opment of native industries. The
schools established by various Europe
an societies have also been remarkably
successful, but I doubt if any practical
results in the way of conversion to.
Christianity have been attained.
"The Hindoo has a very real horror
of losing caste, and so will hold no com
munication with Christians; the na
tives without caste are in a great meas
ure too indifferent to trouble themselves
about a new religion, particularly a
religion introduced by a people whom
they blame for many hardships; for the
advent of Europeans in India has not
been without its drawbacks."
LITTLE FAITH IN ADEPTS.
Dr. Chumoololl was asked if he had
ever seen any of 'the Jogas or adepts,
and answered with some disdain that
he had no belief in any of the pre
tended manifestations. "I think a
great deal of good might result from
the cultivation of such mo6ral modes of
living and thinking as are so strictly
enjoined upon the adherents of theoso
phy," said he, "but I must confess I
have no sympathy with the Joga as
"I have seen many curious things.
For instance, a man who swallowed
yard after yard of linen cloth, and
finally drew it back clean, smooth and
without a mark, as though it had just
left the store.
