"(Special to Groenville News.)
Columbia,' S. C., Nov. 9.-Some of
disponsary and reform people had a
little informal talk here yeterday.
There were ton or twelve . friends of
the dispensary system who met in
the oflice of the Comptroller-not
;ver fifteen. They talked over the
situation generally and agreed that.
there was much latitude for im
provement in the system as now in
Senator Tillman was present. and,
of course, expressed himself very
freely. He was disgusted to the
cussing point at the way things were
running and at the management of
the board of control, or at least their
quarrelling and the recent decision.
Ho called the whole thing a "d -d
stench." He said he would do all he
could to help reinstate the law
in popular favor, if it was not already
Mr. Winkler, who has been giving
the matter considerable attention,
had the draft of a bill he proposed
to introduce and which he wished to
have considered by the friends-of the
system, and there was a general in
terchange of views with t:.e proposed
bill as a basis. Mr. Winkler will in
corporate the views as suggested and
formulated in a bill which he will in
troduce at the approaching session of
the general assembly. He does not
know what success the measure will
have, nor do those who think well
of his views, but they will be press
There were present at the informal
talk, Mr. Winkler, F. B. Gary, Rep
resentatives Crum, Bly the, Blease,
\y. O. Tatum, A. H. Patterson, Sen
tr Tillman and a few others.
There were no members of the pres
ent State administration present and
only a few of the many mem
bers of the general assembly who are
The bill which has been generally
mapped out contains many radical
changes from the present system for
operating the dispensary. First, the
State board of control is to go. It is
to be replaced by a board to consist
of three members of the State ad
ministration who are to live in Co
lumbia, say the Governor, Attorney
General and State Treasurer. This
board is to be in charge of the ad
ministration of the dispensary. The
purchasing is to be done by a board
to consist of the Governor, Attorney
General, State Treasurer and chair
man of the ways and nmeans and fi
nance committe< s The buying is to
be done ur.der contracts to be award
ed annually. The bids are to be
called for by public advertisement in
the daily papers and are to be opened
by the State board as given above and
are to be let in public and to the low
There is to be a clause prohibiting
the distribution of samples or free li
quor to the members of the board of
control, county dispensers or any one
It is proposed to allow the muni
cipal authorities a share in the
settlements and the mayors or in
tendants, and county auditor and
treasurers are to be on the boards
of settlement for the county affairs.
It is likely that t'he county dispen
sersiAlI. be elected by the people, sE
other couiitfimers are, but this haE
not been finally decided upon. Sena

places loft to the voters generally.

There were enough people at the
fair grounds today to give them a
lively appearance, though the crowd
was mach smaller than yesterday and
the day before. The side shows were
still in full blast and were having a
Only three counties competed for
the three prizes offered for the best
county exhibits, consequently each
won a prize.
The first prize, $250 was won
by the very excellent exhibit from
Lexington county. Chester took
second money, $150; and Marlboro
The size of these prizes ought to
have induced much livelier compe
tition. They were worth winning and
at least twenty counties should have
entered the list. If county pride
were properly aroused, this county
competition could be made one of the
best features of the fair. The man
agement should lay greater stress on
it next year, advertise it thoroughly
and endeavor to excite a wholesome
rivalry between the counties. If a
greater number of counties cannot be
induced to compete, the money could
probably be spent more advantage
Colonel Holloway esti!Lates the
total receipts at about $9,000, which
will pay all expenses and leave a com

yesterday netted over $2,600 and the
entrances by :railroad tickets were
even greater. From a financial stand
point, the fa. r was eminently success

Preliminary Action to the Next State Cam
(The State, 10th.)
The conference of Prohibitionists,
called by Chairman A. C. Jones, met
at 12 o'clock yesterday in the hall of
the Knights of Phythias on Main
street. Mr. Jones explained the
reasons for calling the conference,
which was to be purely informal.
The situation in this State was dis
cassed very freely, and the con
ference took preliminary action which
purposes a line of policy on the part
of the Prohibitionists to maintain in
tact their organization and work for
the accomplishment of its objects as
heretofore within the lines of the
Democratic party. This prelimmnary
action will be communicated through
the regular channel to the county
chairmen, and another conference
will be held at a future date to for.
