WHOLESALE BICYCLE STEALING
Eight of the Wheels Stolen Here
Recently, Found In Florence.
There being grounds for suspicion
that Florence was the base of opera?
tion of the bicycle thieves who have
been operating In Sumter for the past
several months. Mr. H. L. Tisdale, the
hlcyble dealer and repairer, who
knows by sight practically all of
the wheels that have been stolen,
went over to Florence Thursday
to make a quiet Investigation. Within
a few hours after his arrival he tele?
phoned Chief of Police Bradford
that he had found eight wheels that
had been stolen in this city. He also
Informed the Chief that the parties
having the win els In their pos?
session refused to give thehl up. He
saM that among the wheels found
were those stolen from Messrs. L. D.
Je'nntngs, R, h. Epps, R, j, Bland
and w. B, Boyle.
Messrs. Jennings and Bpps went
to Florence that afternoon, and
they will make it hot for the thieves
if they can be located. In any e\ >nl
the people who now have the stolen
wheels win be called on to tell where
they got them.

TO RELEASE COUNTY BOARDS.
BIU to be Prepared to Abolish Dis?
pensary Commissions in Dry Coun?
Columbia, Jan. 18.?As a result of
a conference held this afternoon by
legislative representatives from sev?
eral of the counties that voted
against the sale of whiskey last Au?
gust, the board of control in those
counties may soon be dismissed. A
hill to this effect will be drawn up
and presented to the legislature for
action. The proposition will also be
embodied in the bill that one com?
missioner shall be named In each of
the counties to take charge of the
funds and arrange for the further
winding up of the affairs of the coun?
ty dispensaries in the now dry coun?
ties. This commissioner would draw
a nominal salary for his service.
Senator Black, of Bamberg, to?
night explained the object of such a
measure. He stated that in nearly
all the counties that went dry the
funds have been tied up. at least a
portion of the funds, In claims of
whiskey houses, and in three or four
of the counties all stock has not been
disposed of. This means that under
the Act of 1900 the county boards
must remain in office, said Act pro?
viding that the boards shall stay in
office until the final settlement of the
dispensaries affairs. It is further ex,-*
planned that the expenses of keeping1
these boards in office is too much for
the several counties. In round num?
bers each of these members of coun?
ty boards draw $400 a year, making
$1.200 per year In each of the coun
ti s. The Abbeville board has re?
signed voluntarily, it is state!, and
the amount Involved in fourti ? n
counties would be $11,800 per year.
This doel not Include the expense
of clerk of the board, which expense
varies in different C unities, being St
high at $100 in some of thecounties.
Of course, there are other incidental
expenses in keeping the boards In of?
The funds in several counties have
been lied up to secure the overjudg
ments of the state dispensary wind
lng-up commission, it It stated that
expenses In some counties might
reach the limit of going beyond the
amount Involved in the old claims,
for there is no telling when the whole
matter will be oul of the courts, it
is to relieve this situation that a bill
with be drawn. Senator Black stat
ed that in his county the expense
are heavy, and be added, "You can't
blame the memb< it of the board.
They are required to keep in hands
the funds and hold office until th
fairs are wound up. And you
blame a man from drawing a sal

Mr. Bruce L.yr.am, who has had
several bicycles stolen recently, laid
a trap for the thief last Monday and
almost succeeded in losing another
wheel with which he baited the trap.
The wheels which he lost were stolen
from in frmt of Levl Bros.' store,
and thinkir g it about time for the
bicycle thief to be looking for an?
other, so he borrowed Mr. W. H. Cut
tlno's wheel and -placing it on the
sidewalk in front of the store about
6.30 that evening he concealed him?
self inside Ihe store and kept watch
for the thie'. Th<? thief came as ex?
pected, but he seized the wheel and
was off wit a it sd quickly that Mr.
Lynam had hard work in overtaking
him. He n.ade a strenuous pursuit,
however, and pressed him so closely
that the nerro abandoned the wheel
in the rear of the Court House and
succeeded in making his escape. The
negro lost iis hat, but he has not
been identifed, although it is hoped
that he may yet le captured. He is
probably th? one who has stolen a
number of wheels within the past
few months and if be can be cap
tured and put on the gang, wheel
owners will feel easier.
