U1E01M, JL 1 1893.
The opening of Clemson College on
last Thursday marks the beginning of
a new era in the~educational history of
the State. About seven years ago the
establishment of such a school first
began to be seriously agitated in this
State. To Governor, Till

By Act of Congress July 2, 1862, the
interest from the find aridg from the
sale 'of certain land scrip was appro
priated for the maintainance of an ag
ricultural and mechanical college iin
each State. SouthtCarolina accepted
this fund, and to conform to the pro
visions of the Act added an agricul
tural and mechanical department to
the South Carolina College.
Governor Tillman in the Farmers'
Convention which met in Columbia
April 29, 1886, introduced and strongly
advocated the adoption of a set of reso
Itionsurging upon the State the es
tablishment of an agricultural and me
chanical college separate and distinct
from the South Carolina College and
modeled after the plan of thi agricul
tural college of Mississippi.
In 1888 Thomas G. Clemson died,
leaving eight hundred acres of the
Jo47n C. Calhoun homestead and about
$80,000 to the State on condition that
the State would build, equip and p
in operation an agricultural and me
chanical college. This bequest infused
new life into the movement for an ag
ricultural college, and one of the lead
Ing issues In State politics became the
acceptance or rejection of this bequest
The fight resulted in the acceptance 0
the bequest by the State in 188, dur
Ing Richardson's administration.
The next year Tillman became Gov
ernor and has continued to take at
active part in making he colleges
suocess. Clemson College is destine
to be one of the most potent factors ir
the future development of the State.

Storm-Killed-The Weather Bureau
Predictes the Iowa Cyclone.
[Special to New York Press.1
.AsBTNGTON, July 8.-The deva
stated Iowa counties were warned oj
their danger twenty-four hours in ad
:ance. At least the Weather Bureau,
according to a bulletin issued to-night
on the night of Wednesday, the 5th,
sent messages throughout the State by
telegraph and telephone, warning the
people generally of severe local storwi
on the next day.
Chief Harrington in the same bulle.
-tin says that the "residents of the
States in the upper and central Missis
sippi and Missouri should provide
places of safe resort, such as a portion
of the cellars in their houses, strongly
protected." This is not because "there
is a permanent change in the weather
condition in the direction of the in
crease of tornadoes, but this is an un
usual year for their occurrence, as was
the year 1883."
*The records of the department show
that since the first of the tornado crop
of 1893 was harvested last February in
Louisiana and Mississippi, the number
of lives. lost has been 170, and the
amount of property over $1,500,000.
The area of destruction has included
almost the whole of the Union, with
the exception of the far West and North
east. and covers, besides the States
mentioned, Alabama, Georgia, Arkan
sas Missouri, Indiana, Kentucky, Ohio,
Illinois, New York, West Virginia,
Indian Territory, Kansas, Nebraska,
South Dakota, Texas, Michigan. Wis
consin, Tennessee, North and Soutb
Carolina and Minnesota. The names
of the States are printed in the chrono
logical order of their visitation from
February to Jne.
Despite the heavy death and proper
ty loss of this tornado year, no one
calamity has in that time approached
the Iowa diaster, which is the most
severe of the' kind since that of
March 27, 1890, at Louisville.

DOWNED IN DARLINGTON.
The Dispensary Act Declared Uncostitu
tional-Judge Hudson Grants the
Prayer for an Injunction Against
the Darlington Board of
(Special to News and Courier.1
DARLINGTON, July 7.-Judge Hud
son to-day decided that the Evans dis
pensary law is unconstitutional. Thi
decision was made in the case of sev.
eral freehold, voters of the town o:
Darlington against the county board o:
control and J. B. Floyd as dispenser, it
which the freeholders petitioned thal
an injunction be issued restraining thi
joard or Mr. Floyd from opening g
dispensary here. The injunction wa
asked tor-on the ground that the dis
pensary law is unconstitutional and
that J. B. Floyd, who was appointe
dispenser, did not have a majority ol
the freehold voters upon his petitioE
The main point upon which Judge
Hudson decided thelaw to be uncon
stitutional is that the State takes s
business from the individual and cre
ates a monopoly in it for itself. Thai
prohibitory laws are constitutional,
but the Evans bill is not such 'a law,
but on the contrary is a law for revenue
He also said that the famous Wilso
Act of Congress does not prohibit the
railroads from bringring from withoul
the State liquor to citizens within the
State. When the sale of liquor it
prohibited by State law a citizen can
not sell it, but that it is his property,
and the railroads can deliver it to him
This opiqW-n on the Wilson Act wai
given pardthetically and does not bea
on the case at issue.
Judge Hudson further decided thai
Floyd's appointment was illegal as hi
did not have a majority of the freeholc
voters upon his petition. The Judge
therefore, issued an order restraininm
the county board and Mr. Floyd fron
opening a dispensary until furthei
order from the Court.
This, of course, is the most impor
taft decision,rendered in this State ir
many years and will be read witi
great interest by everyone in Souti
Carolina. 3fessrs Nettles & Nettles
who represented the freeholders, wer
sustained in every point by thedecision
which disinterested lawyers pro
nounced to be a particularly strong an(
able one. Messrs Boyd & Brown re
presented Mr. Floyd, and Assistan,
Attorney-Gene.l Buchanan and Solici
tor Johnson appeared for the board o
The legal fight was a vigorous an'
hard fought one, lasting nearly tw
days. Judge Hudson is now puttinj
his reasons for the decision in writing
which I will forward toThe News an
Courier as soon as filed.
SYNOPSIS OF THE DECISION.
The grounds upon which the injunc
tion was asked are:
First, Because the petition of Johi
Buckner Floyd for the office of dispen
ser is not signed by a majority of th
freehold :voters of the town, and h!
bond is invalid.
Second, Because the act of 24th De
cember, 1892, in so far as it provide
for the establishment of S ate ani
county Dispesaries for the sale of it
toxicating liquors in the State, is un
Th6 defendants claim that the in
junction should not be granted, because

equity, inasmuch as it alleges n
special or irreparable Injury to th
Second, Because the court is with
out jurisdiction in this proceeding ti

an action in 'the nature of quo warrantA
being the, proper proceeding for tha
purpose and the writ of certiorani be
ing the only proceeding to -correct an,
?bpposed error of judgment of th
board of control In granting the permit
Judge Hudson says:
""I do not take such. a view of thi
action. It is .brought by taxpayer
and freehold voters, not to try title t
oficee nor to correct error of judgmen~
in a judicial body, but to prevent th
establishment of a1Dispensary withou
a full compliance by the board and ap~
pli::ant for Dispenser with the essentia
Iprerequisites of the act, and to preven
the establishment of a Dispensary .alte
gether if the act be unconstitutional.
"Tere the injunction i
apprpri - ed, ann in fact if
the only e ' ~edy; and tax
payers and voters of the tow1
can invoke the aid of the court c
equity in such.an action without alleg
ing or provingjspecial amage.
"It is the right of the taxpayer ti
avert the misappropriation of thetLaxe
of the people by an illegal division C
investment of the same and for thi
purpose the doors of the courts ar
always open to him."
As to the number of freehold voter
who had signed the petition of J. I
Floyd, after hearing the many conflict
ing affidavits presented, Judge Hudsoi
"I am convinced, however, thatth
petitioner, J. B. Floyd, did not secur
on his petition a majority, and so hold
"The act Is very stringent in requir
ing the majority to sign freely, volur
tarly and with a full understanding c
thc meaning of the petition.9
IT IS UNGONSTITUTIONAL.
Of the second clause he says, afte
reviewing many authorities and citing
"Can the act of 24th December, 1892
now under consideration, be sustaine<
as coming within the.police .power o
"In so far as it prohibits the mann
facture and sale of intoxicating liquori
in this State, it can. This question has
long been settled by the courts of the
States of the Union, and recently in
express terms by our Supreme Court.
"But the vital question is whethei
it is constitutional for the Legislature
to confer upon the government of this
State, or any branch thereof, the ex
elusive right to trade in intoxicating
liquors and maintain the same frorr
the treasury of the State? Can thal
body divert the taxes of the people
from the legitimate purposes of govern
ment, and invest the money in the
trade and traffic in intoxicating liquors
t.o the exclusion of the right of the peo
ple to deal therein?
"There is no wax:rant in the constitu
tion for the creation of so gigant~c a
monopoly in any private individual 0r
association of individuals. The attempt
to erect such a monopoly would '-ery
justly alarm and outrage the people,
and would not stand the test of law.
To confer upon an individual or a cor
porati9tn, under wholesome rules and
regulations, the exclusive right to sell
intoxicating liquors in the State of
South Carolina would be unconstita
tional; not because such a grant is pro
hibited expressly by the constitution,
but because it is against the genius
and spirit of all free govern ments, and
it is in violation of the common law
rights of the people, as handed down
to us through the Magna Charts of
King John, and which form the webn
and woof and warp of our fundamental
law and individual rights.
"Neither in express terms nor by
any implication have the people dele
gated to this government, either in its
legislative, executive or judicial depart
ment, to engage in trade, traffic or
commerce in competition with the peo
ple, much less to their exclusion. rhe
government cannot become sole pro
prietor nor- copartner in any of the
usual known branches of industry,
trade or commerce. These are the pur
suits and property of the people, which
they have never surrendered to the
government. On the contrary, the
very object of creating the government
was to protect them in these individual
rights, to wit, life, liberty, property
and the pursuit of happiness.
"It violates the Fifth Amendment to
I the Constitution of the United State.
UA XN J VY _."UXLIP.L -. AL.a..
and Sections 11 and 13 of the Declara
tions of rights of tde Constitution of
South Carolina, designed to secure to

"It violates .Section 8, Article 1, of
the Constitution, giving to Congress the
power, among other things, to 'regu
late commerce with foreign nations,
and among the several States, and
with the Indian tribes.' The decision
in the 'original package cases' was that
r such packages of liquor, large or small,
transported from one State to another,
could be sold In an unbroken state iu
spite of prohibitory laws. Of course
this rendered the prohibitory law of a
State virtually nugatory. This led tc
the act of Congress of 1890, known as
the Wilson bill. Under this law the
common carrier can transport the
packages and deliver the same to the
consignee, unmolested by State laws,
but when received by the consignee the
goods are then subject to State probibi

it prohibits.the sale of intoxicating liq

tory feature alone is it justified as an
exercise of police power; but when it
proceeds to transfer the-traffic from the
citizens to the Stats exclusively, it is
divested of every feature of the police

The Ralro9d Commission Restrained
From Enforcing Ibe Liquor Rates.
CHARLESTON, S. C., July 8.-An or
der has been received. from the Clerk
of the United States Circuit Court
restraining the Railroad Commission
of South Carolina from enforcing the
provitions of their latest schedule of
rates on liquor. Hugh L. Bond, Jr.,
counsel for the receivers of the Rich
mond and Danville Rilroad went be
fore Judge Hugh L. Bond at Baltimore
and presented a petition setting forth
the circumstances of the case and pray
ing for a temporary -injunction and rule
to show cause.
The petition is quite lengthy giving
a complete history of the action of the
Railroad Cnmmission in the matter.
The principle grounds on which the
petition is based are that the commis
sion construes the Act of the Legisla
ture of South Carolina in December,
1892, to make the freight rates estab
lished by the Commission stand as fair
and reasonable without allowing the
roads to attempt to convince the Com
mission to the contrary that the action
of the Commission is null and void in
asmuch as the law, if construed as they
interpret it, will be a violation of the
fourteenth amendment to the Constitu
tion of the United States and that the
fixing of these unreasonably low rates
on liquor in glass packages, as the dia
pensary ships it,isan unlawful interfer
ence with the property in the hands
of the receivers of the court.
Judge Bond issued the order prayed
for and the hearing of the caso will
come off At Greenville, August 7.

Well, the primary election is all

nomination. This gives the Conserva
tive party a victory, which we suppose
they feel proud of. Now we hope that
everything will go on smoothly and
lovely, and, the He6ald and News
still continue to advocate peace and
harmony. This was quite a peaceable
election; just as they all should be.
But this is in no wise a sign -that the
Reform party is weakening. The far
mers have been bound up among the
grass so tightly for the past few weeks
that they have had no possible time to
spare for politics. We firmly believe
I that instead of this defeat weakening
the Reform party, it will only be a
means of bringing them closer to
gether. Not a bit of danger of the
farmers disorganizing; they cannot af
ford anything,of the kind so long as
there are so many combinations organ
ized against them.
P We thought a little chastisement

he loves -cowcumber picklee and ing
uns cut up over beans, but is not very
fond of tomatpe.He has thrown
out a joedartr now that will stop
some -of the girls and put them to
thinking; he tells them that he has a
fine patch of lasses cane growing.
It seems as if we are to have a little
polly tics and a few barbecues every
year. It looks like they have the cart
before the horse this time; the polly

the barbecues are just now In full
