Columbia, S. C., "heb. 21.-In the last
hours of the session of the House a sur
prising and unexpected thing occurred.
An elTort was made to take away
from the county. board of control the
right to eluc' dispensers who sell beer
and place that power entirely in t,he
hands of tho State board. It has long
been a bone of contention and the
troubles and tangles about the beer dis
pensers in the cities over 20,000 are
fresh in the minds of the people.
The Attorney General held that the
county boards, and not the State boards,
should select the beer dispensers. It
appears that an innocent, little county
government bill of Mr. Itaysor was sac
riliced in the hope of getting through
a bill, ont a free conference report
which sought, to give the State board
the right to elect the beer dispensers
The free conference went to work to
adjust, differences on a county govern
ment bill and brought out a bill on the
election of ber dispensers. Mr.
Raysor's bill was useless, as it had been
covered in the general law, and was
used as .the skoleton for the beer dis
pe- sary bill. No such bill was offered,
discussed or passed by the House. It
had been presented in the Senate and
was there a second reading bill. The
ground for the report. on free con
ference was that it was simply to cor
rect the statute and make It read as it
was intended to read last year.

MR ILiOMlNIOR 'S EXPtLrANATION.
Mr. Doinick stat,ed that possibly
some explanation was due from the
committee on the free eon ference as to
why a substit,ute bill was inserted. He
said that during the closing hourrs of
the last session a ftree contfereneoon
mittee reported a bill1 to give the State
board directors the potwer to grant per
mite for the establishment of brew
crIes, dilstilleries and establish ments
or the bottling and sale of beer In
cities of over twenty thousand inihabi
tants. The Attirney General ruled
that on account of failutre to provIde
bond and other minor matters in the
Act no addItional ptower was vested In
the State hoaurd of directors. In large
eities.a b'eu r establishtment has to Invest
$15,000 to $20.000, and the county
tboardi cart only elect, for one year, and
this p)rfyides that on tIs account they
should be elected for fouri years, and at
the same time bet removed from local
andt county politics. He believed
sulliclent, notice had bueenr given in that
intention of the ptresent. House, as ex
pressed In t,he Act passed last year,
was to give the board this power, arnd
that 1)1bi had been in trodieeed int the
Senate. Hie wanted the liouso to stand
by its former acting arid further stat,ed
that the only reason that, this law is
not made of force is on account of the

Mr. Izlar was ver'y emphatIc in op

was hunWISC, unaUthorized and excop
tional law-making. Mr. izlar was vig
orotus in his position.
Mr. Ashley agreed with him.
Mr. Williams asked if the report was
competent under the rules, being upon
a dilferent, subject to that, which went
to conference. Mr. Moses who was in
the uhair, preferred to leave the ques
tion to the house.
Mr. Dominick said ho thought a free
conferenco committee could chango an
ontiro bill and said he had the author
ity of some of the host parilamentarians
for this position.
'11 0 l-: 1,1 K III1) .
The Ilouso rejected the committee
report and in this way the dispensary
bill was killed. The killing of the
conference roport in the House avoided
the necessity of reporting the matter
to the Senate .
LAST YMEAl'S DISPENSARlY AC'.
The following Is the lBeer D)ispen
sar. Act passed last year, and which
was the basis for the report:
"Provided, also, that the State board
of directors may grant privileges for
tho oreotion and operation of breweries
distilleries, and establishments for the
bottling and sale of bet, styled beer
dispensaries, in cities of over 20.00
populaiton, to be operated as now prc
scribed by law."
TIle CLOSING SCENE.S.
Columbia, February 22 -The Gene
ral Assembly has adjourned sine die.
No great epoch has been marked. It
was an ordinary, a diligent and mod
erate and good-natured session. Noth
lig radical was done The lawmakers
went home in a good humor. Mr. Ba
cot, of Charleston, had the customary
privilege of making the motion to ad
journ in the houso. After Messrs.
ifird, Prince and Kibler had notified
the Governor that the house had fin
ished its work and awaited further ad
vices, if any, the house and senate
passed final courtesies through Acting
Clerk Gibbos and Clork It Rt. Ilemphill.
Secretary Aull reported that tthu;money
bills had all been signed and the
House could adjourn, and as the city
bell struck 6 the 15 or 20 remain
ing members voted with glad ac
claim that the House adjourn sine die,
and the Senate followed a few minutes
To-day was an ordinary grind to
ratify bills, except that the beer dis
pensary free conference report bobbed
up again by a statement being tiled by
two Senators, who suggested that they
had been fooled, but, admitted that they
had not read the propos"d law giving
the State board the right to elect beer
dispensers in cities of over 20,000.
Two nienbers of the Hlouse committee
made statements that, they also signed
a report meaning a great deal and that
they never read the paper. The re
sult was that an investigation was or
dered under a concurrent resolution
into the whole matter.
TillE I)SP' NSAItY SENSATION.

Mr. Speaker and Gentlemen of the
House: We, as members of a commit
tee of free conference on the part of
the Senate on bill 581, dlesire to state
that we signed the report of the free
conference committee when very busy
and without even lookcing over the
matter submitted to the committee for'
its cotsolderation, but taking the as
stiranice of Mr. Fred H. Dominiok, of
the Ihouse, that the said reports was all
right and of no genetral consequence.
Neither of us was present at any delib
eration as to said report and knew
nothing whatsoever of its provisions
except from the statement made by Mr.
Dominick, as above mentioned.
W. C. IHough,
J. T. Douglass.
Members of the House thought it,
about as well to drop the mnatter and
let it rest there. M r. Weston moved to
table the communication. Just about
this time Mr D3minick camne into the
hall and inquired as to theepecial mes
sage. He asked that it be read to him,
and after this was done, with a great
deal of feeling, he asked that before
the matt,er be tabled he be allowed to
make a statement. He did not, see wihy
he should be singled out, for an attack,
but he was responsible for all he had
done and was anxious to assume the
full responsibility for all that he'had
done., He wont on to say that the Sen
ators signed she report of their own free
will and accord. As to the Senator
from Lancast,er, he would say that he
went to him in advance of taking hlis
Ithe report and had a talk with him
about the very matter, lie explained
to him that the law as passed at the ls
session ought to be perfect,ed, and out
lined how the remedy could be applied
and the Senator toild him that he woukc
help him to perfect the law, and he noiw
thought it, unfair for the Senator t<

As to the S'nator ftrom Florence, the
