CHICCO AND HEYWARD.
ind Tiger King Calls -n the Governor.
Other Matters Relating to Dis
pensary in Charleston.
Columbia Cor. News and Courier.]
Vineent Chicco, of Charleston,
came to. Calumbia last Wednesday
to consult with the Governor over
the blind tiger situation. Chicco has
been raided so often that he thinks
he has been specially singled out for
persecution ou the part of the con.
stables and he seemed to make com
'iplaint-in that regard. However, his
/main point evidently was to convince
the Governor that disaster would re.
11suit if he insisted on the strict en
forcement. of t,he law. It was some
'what of an anomalous conference-a
leading and acknowledged blind
tiger dealer pleading for a compro
mise -but the Governor was rather
glad to meet him, as he considerel
him somewhat of a representative of
the business in Charleston, and he
desired to have all illicit dealers to
understand his position thoroughly
and unmistakably. Chicco evidently
thought it was in the power of the
Governor to compromise the matter,
Sfor he said that he and many of the
dealers would be utterly ruined if
they were forced ont of the business.
SThe Governor talked very plainly to
him and told him that he would be
compelled to enforce the law, and ad
vised Chicco and all others in his
Sposition to close up at once He
.told him plainly that there could(1be
no compromise with the open1 or se
cret sale of liquor. Chicco said he
wanted to get out of the business,
but seemed to think if he could sell
"on the quiet" it would be all right,
but, of course, such a prop)ositionl, if
it had been1 directly made, would not
Shave been entertained for a moment.
Although Ohicco pretended that
be was on the verge of roin), he ap
peared very cheer ful, and when int ro
duced to Chief Constable Hammett
said he was glad to meeit him and
asked him pleasantly to call wvhen he
came to Charleston.
Chief of Police Boyle had a very
pleasant interview today with G*ov
ernor Heyward. Mayor Smyth and
Chief Boyle had a conference rela
tive to the dispensary situation in
Charleston, and it was thought well
that Chief B3oyle-should c3me to Co
lumbia and make the police depart
ment thoroughly understood.
Chief Boyle had a letter from
Mayor Smyth and said, by way of
preface, that he wished to discuss
the matter without feeling or per
sonalities, and that he had no pur
pose to criticise anyone and would
not do so.
He wished for tihe police depart
ment, as Mayor Smyth had pre
viously done, to assure the Governor
'of the co operation of the police de
partment ini the effort to enforce the
disnensary law in Charleston, and to

say that the police department would
do all that it could legitimately do
Under the opinion of the corpora
tion counsel the police have no right
to enter a man's store or place of
business and make arrests without
a warrant, while the constables have.
A constable, however, could make
the arrest and take the prisoner out
on the street and the police would
co-operate and take charge of the
prisoner. The opinion is that the
police, however, have no right to
enter a store to make an arrest, but
the officer would be in duty bound
to take charge of the prisoner when
turned over to him. Chief Boyle
emphasized the fact that there was
no friction between the police and
the constables in Charleston.
Chief Boyle stated that the main
purpose of his visit was to assure
Governor Heyward that it was the
purpose and the desire of Mayor
Smyth and the police department to
assist in every way possible and to
co-operate fully in the enforcement
of the dispensary law.
Governor Heyward stated that he
was glad Chief Boyle called upon
him and delighted to have the assur
ance of the police dlepartment and
Mayor of Charleston that it is in
tended to co operate in every way
possible in the enforcement of the
dispensariy law in Charleston.
CIHICCO COMES HOME.
[News and Courier.]
Vincent Chic.-o, wvho went to Co
lumbia to have a talk with the Gov
ernor about the b)linld tiger situation,
has returned to Charleston. Yester
day he consented to tell what, hap
pened when he braced the Governor.
Acco-ding to Chico the interview
was in part as follows:
"Now, Governor," said Chicco,
"you're a genitlemian; aill the Hey.
wards are gentlemian. And i'm a
gentleinian, anrd all the Chiccos are
gentlemen. Governor, tell mue
what, are you going to do about this
"T here is but one thing to be (lone,
Chiic,co,'' the Governor replied in
positive tones, "you'll have to quit
this business. It is my duty to en
force t he dispe*nsary law.''
"unt, Governor, I've got a wife
and niany children. I have to supJ
port them. I've got to miake a liv.
ing; that's the proposition I'm up
"Well, you will have to close your
establishment, Chicco, unless you can
make a living without breaking the
law. Promise me you'll cease vio.
lating the dispensary law.
"Governor, I've just told you I'm
a gentleman, and if 1 was to make
that promise P'd break it, and then
I'd be a liar. And no gentleman is

Governor, decidedly, "you've go to
