Boh Nicholson, the auditor of the dr?
one. At ths time the shooting Is said
to have occurred I was talking to

LIQUOR RESORTS ENJOINED.
Injunctions Served In Charleston Arc
l ikely to He .Made Permanent.
Columbia, Oct. 8,?No little inter?
est wi's aroused when it was learned
here tonight that four injunctions
similar to the injunctions served on
the proprlctori of (he Isle of Palms
resort on September 13th were today
served on other Charleston resorts aa
follows: The Charleston Hotel, In?
cluding the New Charleston Hotel
Company, Rlddook & Byrns. proprie?
tor, and Ernest Brown, an employee;
the Argyle Hotel, Including the
Argyle Hotel Company, Rlddook &
Byrns, proprietors, and Ernest Gill
man, an employee; a Market street
restaurant conducted by Rlddock &
Byrns, Danny, Nixon, an employee,
and J. F. Walsh, as owner of the
premises; the Schuetzenplatz, owned
by the German Ride Club of Charles?
ton and ?Mlnzenmaire an employee,
wh ? is i.ara/i d as the active keeper
and manager of the resort.
The injunctions were obtained by
Attorney General Lyon, who appeared
before Associate Justice Eugene Oar\,
at Abbeville, on Monday and present?
ed a.petition similar^ to that on which
the Injunction against the Isle of
Palms was granted, along with affida?
vits to show that the places named
were resorts prohib'ted as "nuisances"
by the present liquor law, in which
liquor not analyzed and found to be
pure is sold and in which
persons are permitted to resort for the
purpose of drinking alcoholic bever?
Aa to the allegation that liquor in
these resorts has not been analyzed
In accordance with the law affidavits
are presented from the members of
the Charleston County board of con?
trol. In the case of the Schuotzen
platz affidavits are also presented
from John Burton and Thomas Kelly,
members Of the rural police, who state
that they raided the club rooms ot
this organisation on July 3 and 11,
and on the first occasion secured six
bottles of beer and one bottle of whis?
key, on the second secured ten bottles
of beer and one of whiskey. (
There ere also affidavits from Dis?
pensary Auditor West aa to the alle?
gations that the places named were
used as resorts for the drinking of
whiskey. There are other similar af?
fidavits. Section 29 of the Carey
Cothran law is as follows: "All places
where persons are peimitted to resort
for the purpose of drinking alcoholic
liquors or beverages are hereby de?
clared nuisances, and the keeper or
manager of such places upon con?
viction shall be .punished as provided
in Section 1 of this Act." It is under
this section that the proceedings are
The injunctions served today are, of
?ourse. temporary, and the order is
made returnable before the entire Su?
preme Court on the day that the court
meets here in November In regular
session. If the respondents fofiow the
policy of the Isle of Palms respon?
dents and decline to make any return
or to either deny or admit the allega?
tions the court will doubtless follow
!ts decision of last Friday In the Isle
of Palms case and make the injunc?
tions permanent. Under those condi?
tions if any one of the persons named
In the Injunctions violate the court's
order he or they can be punished for
contempt of court without being
brought before a jury for trial.
Toad Centuries Old.
President Roosevelt having settled
the question of the cross saddle in fa?
vor of the girl who prefers to ride her
horse astride should now turn to the
nautre fakirs. A miner In Aus?
tralia, sinking a shaft preparatory to
filling it with explosives, has just
found a toad in a stratum of cement,
while the case of another of these
small animals which was imbedded
in limestone adjudged to be at least
0.000 years old, Is cited In the same
country* Similar Instances are de
aerlbsd by veracious quarrvmen in
America, and they should have Mr.
Roosevelt's authoritative investiga?
tion. It Is alleged, of course, that the
toads made their homes there in the
mud. As it hardened to stone they
were imprisoned, and in their little
chambers continued in a state of sus?
pended animation until, coming to
the air, life returned, and they began
to hop about. No one has ever
thought of casting doubt upon this
nature story, which la aa old as
