THE LADY AND THE TIGERS.
Latest Methods of Delivering L quor
To Illicit Dealers as Reported to
That an automobile, containing a
lady and gentleman in the roar seat,
delivered two ten-gallon Legs of
whiskey to a blind tiger near the
corner of Mary and Nassau streets
yesterday afternoon, was in the in?
formation received by the police de
partment yesterday evening. The in?
formation was given at a time when
It was recognized that a raid upon
the place would be useless. The
names ef the owner of the auto and
those of the occupants of the car
were not given out for publication by
the police. It was stated that the au?
tomobile was one which had been
held up before by members of the po?
lice raiding squads and liquor tnken
from the tonneau.
The person who gave the informa?
tion to the police stated that the car
drovo up to the blind tiger at a great
rate of rpeed, stopped suddenly, while
the chauffeur with the assistance of
several negroes, who had apprsently
been loitering about aimlessly until
then, carried the two kegs of whlnkey
into the blind tiger. The whole trans?
action, it Is stated, did not take up
more than thirty seconds' time.
The Idea of carrying contraband
liquor about the city in an automo?
bile, with a lady seated not two feet
from the^tuff, is recognised by the
police as' being a "slick trick." and
has, it is stated, been employed be?
fore by the illicit liquor Interests in
order to escape the obnoxious police
squads. In talking over the situa?
tion last night, a police lieutenant
made the following remarks: 'The
plan is Ingenious for several reasons.
Suppose one of the autos suspected
of carrying contraband liquor and
containing a lady in the rear seat
were held up by a policeman foi the
purpose of being searched, and that
it should happen that the car con?
tained no liquor after all. having
been stopped at the wrong time, the
consequences would be rather disas?
trous for ths officer who submitted
the lady to the 'humility of the or?
deal. On the other hand, should the
officer's suspicions prove to be cor?
rect, and should he And some contra?
band liquor In the car he had stop?
ped, trie consequences would be un?
pleasant for the lady, who would
no doubt use every meane to make
the life of the officer in question very
miserable In one way or another."
Tl police .<tate that the big car
wblc a alleged to have made the de?
liver yesterday? afternoon *ill be
rub> d to the constant scrutiny of
police detectives In all of Its travels
ibout the city In the future. Several
other automobile? are also suspected
Df being In league with the blind tlg
?rs In the city as well as in* the coun?
ty?Newa and Courier.

For Illinois Central.
Nashville, Tenn., Oct. 7.?A special
dispatch from Chicago tonight says
that Secretary of War Dickinson \n ill
appear before the Illinois Supreme
COUft to argue a case for the Illinois
Central Railroad Company for which
he was formerly general counsel. The
Stnte of Illinois is the opposing party
to the suit.
Judge Dickinson's attention being
called to the matter, he said the suit
had already been argued by him in
the lower court while general counsel
lor the Illinois Central road. He said
that it involves a large amount In
taxes to the road and had required a
great amount of detail preparation.
He emphatically declared that no
question was involved that in any
way affected government regulation
of railroads. It was simply a ques?
tion of accounting under a contract.
Secretary Dickinson explained that
when offered a position In President
Taft's cabinet he Informed the pres?
ident that he would dissolve absolute?
ly his connection with the railroad
company, but told him that at that
stage of the suit in question, the com?
pany could not employ new counsel
who would have the familiarity with
the case requisite to argue It on ap?
peal and that he did not feel it was
tight under such conditions to aban?
don the case. The president, Mr.
Dickinson said, agreed to this view
and appointed him to the cabinet
with the distinct understanding that
he would complete his argument In

JUDGE RKVERSES DECISION.
Judge AhlrUh Holds Tliat Municipal
Courts Can Try Cases for Violation
Of Dispensary Law.
Anderson, Oct. 7.?Judge Robert
Aldrlch has reversed his recent de?
cision, which was that municipal
courts have no jurisdiction to try liq?
uor cases. This decision he made
when he presided over general ses?
sions court here two weeks ago. Hi?
reversal was at Pickens this week
when a case charging a merchant of
Easley with selling whiskey was ap?
pealed to the circuit court. Judge
Aldrich stated, so a Pickens visitor
in Anderson today said, that his de?
cision at Anderson was made just
prior to adjournment of court and
before he had time to look into the
law. After mature thought and after
consulting the statutes the court has
decided that he erred in Anderson.
In the appeal before him at Pickens
Judge Aldrich sustained the mayor
of Easley, but he ordered the fine of
$50 reduced to $25. It is not konv/n
whether Judge Aldrich is going *o re?
verse his decision in the Anderson
cases or whether he is going to allow
them to go on to the Supreme Court
for a ruling. The Easley case was
identical with the case in Anderson.
