Dr. (?oorgc W*. Young, member of
the "Flying Squadron," of thc Na

be a union service, nearly all of
churrees of the city joining In w.J.i
tho Methodist congregation to hear
Dr. Young.
Dr. Young is one of the best in
formed men on th liquor question
in the United States and has cam
paigned 40 states In the nation and
has done ?. groat deal of legislative
work with the national congress. He
bas been campaigning in South Caro- .
lina for the past I? days, t ie tirst
meeting having been held at Union
and has spoken at about 12 places.
Dr. Young has been connected with
tho temperance movement for tho past
20 yenrs. For eight y-'ars he was as
sistant nntlonnl superintendent. He
is a man of middle age and has a
great message to tell tho people ot
Rev. J. L. Harley, superintendent
of the Anti-saloon longue of South
Cnrolina for the past eight years, will
make a short speech tomorrow after

I'iedmont section and a large vate in
tho lower part of the state. Accord
ing to the newspapers of thc state, a
considerable number of colored men
have registered in the lower counties.
It is easy to see that should thu color
ed voters line up with the liquor peo- (
pie nud the foreign element in thc
wei countries down tho state, we
might bo surprised unless the Pied
mont vote ls polled. So far as the
injunction proceedings before the su
preme court are concerned, there is
no danger from that source and If the
supreme court should enjoin this In
junction, tho legislature would make
short work wHh the dispensary wOen
lt meets.
All the people of the etty and coun
ty are urged to hesr Dr. Young to
dny especially tho men at the mass
meeting for men only this afternoon.
Dr .Young will go to North Dakota

end of July last year, settlement of

mission composed of tho Minister of
Finances, the presidents of the finance
committees of the senate and tho
chamber of deputies, and the "Cham

-the directing committee of the stock
brokers association.
Under ordinary circumstances the
"Cours de compensation" upon which
deals are carried over from one settle

stock-brokers committee, one hour
before the closing the Bourse, in con

Thats monopoly dates from the crea

of thc stato council as a measure to
restrict speculation after the complete
.demoralization .of French finances by
the speculations1 of the "Mississippi
Bubble." Different decrees of the state
council prohibited negotiations of
securities elsewhere than on a public
market, and gave the monopoly to 70
"Agents do Change"-stock brokers
named by the king.
These 70 official stock brokers form
