W. P. Pugh.
All the boxes were in and the re

THE STATE AS BARKEEPER.
rhe New Order Inaugurated Last Saturday
-The Private Bars closed and the
State in the Busiuess.
Last Friday the board of control and
tbe county dispenser were all busy
opening up their liquor and making
ready for business on Saturday.
The barrooms had about closed out
all their liquor and it would have been
almost impossible to secure a gallon of
good rye liquor from any of the bars.
They had managed to run their stock
down very low.
Everything had been made in readi
ness for the new order of things and
Saturday, but for the State Dispensary,
there would have been no liquor on
sale in Newberry, and if the board had
taken the trouble to have had a correct
list of the freehold voters we would
have had prohibition pure and simple,
But that seems to be foreign to the idea
of the dispensary and prohibition ad
vocates of the new idea.
At the dispensary we understand
that an even hundred applications
were filed, while the dispenser refused
to sell some few who made application

The detail of Capt. Garlington for the
Clemson Agricultural College was also
very earnestly recommended to the
Secretary by Senator Irby, of South
Carolina. The Secretary felt constrained
to deny the request of Senator Irhy for
the following reasons, which are equal
ly applicable to the similar requests
of yourself and other gentlemen of the
State: The regulations regarding the
detail of army officers for colleges ex
pressly prohibit the detail of Captains
for that duty. These regulations were
adopted after careful consideration of
the subject. While it sometimes be
comes necessary to detach Captains
from their troops or companies, yet the
department does so only in cases of ex
treme necessity. The presence of a
Captain with his appropriate com'mand
is deemed by the department indis
pensible to the good condition of the

Mr. Reeder gave them no notice not
to enter the lands or to leave after
they had entered, but at once under

Reeder conducted the prosecution him
self and the defendants were repre

WA~SmeTorn, June 29.-Attorney
General Townsend, of Columbia, left
Washington for home to-night. Mr.
Townsend said he wants to be in South
Carolina on Saturday to witness the
opening of the government liqunor dis
pensaries. He wsll return to Washing
ton in about a fortnight.
Mr. N. B. Dial, of Laurens, also left
to-night in company with Mr. Town
send. Mr. Dial has been lingering in
Washington with the idea that Presi
dent Cleveland might offer him some
thing better than the Zurich consul
ate. Tfo-day Dial had a long conference
with Assistant Secretary of State Quin
cy. "I have had a talk with the Presi
dent about your case," said Quincy,
"and we have come to the conclu
sion that we cannot offer you anything
better than the p lace which has been
tendered you. Were it not for factional
feuds in. your State something might
"As for that," replied Dial, "faction
need not cut any figure. I have been
endorsed by. both Senators and every
Congrsman from my State."
"Yes," replied Quincy, ".we appre
ciate your splendid recommendations,
but the fact of the matter is all desir
able places have been filled, and it is
improbable that any South Carolinian
will be given an appointment superior
to the Zurich consulate."
Mr. Dial then formally declhned the
position. He says he cannot aftord to
go to a foreign country and represent
the United States on such'limited sal
ary as is attached to the place which.
was tendered him. His application
was for the consulate to Havre, France,
and all his recommendations were for
that place. That office was filled early
in March, however, and ever since the
Laurens lawyer has been living in
hopes. He says to-night that he will
return to his home and practice his

of a local wag and musicianer, steppec
up to the dispensary Saturday fcr hib
usual weekly supply of the dispense

of his heart for the liquid that wouk
give solid comfort shone through hii
snapping eyes, and his mouth wa.
tered as he thought of how the bird,
would soothe him with their lullabyi
in the early dawn of the succeedinf
day as he would scratch his head and
reach out his arms for the accustome
little brown bottle of booze.
Said Dispenser Maybin: "I'm afraik
to let you have it, sir; for I believe yot

"When did you ever hear of my get.
ting drunk?" asked thirsty.
"Don't you remember," answered
he dispensiarie, "that you used to go
ierenading about eight. or nine years
tgo? Well, you got tight then-and
rou might now."
Great Scot! Maybin. Must the sins
