Judge Pritchard this morning heard
the motion of Attorneys B. L. Ab
Abney, of Columbia, and W. L. Ste?
venson, of Cheraw, representing Com?
missioners W. J. Murray, John Mc
Sween and Avery Patton, for the
appointment of a Special Master to

tained by the wlnding-up commission
by reason of the appointment of re?
ceivers for the dispensary funds, and
the injunction against the perform?
ance of their duties by the commis?

the position that the Court could not
assess damages and costs as it had
no Jurisdiction. Mr. Abney replied
that it*was a strange doctrine that
the Court could not assess cost:? when
it was ordered to do so by the Su?
preme Court, and read authorities to
show that damages were assessable.
