,iyor Smyth Made His Fortual Return
But the Directors Did Not
Seem Satisfied.
The directors of the State dispen
ary have decided to restore to
harleston all of the city's share of
.e dispenisary profits except so
auch ' will be necessary to pay
,e expenses of litigation in the
'ieters matter.
The mayor and other officials of
tie city appeared before the board
at its meeting in Columbia on Wed
nesdav. After the return of the
:flicials the board went into execu
ive session, Gov. Heyward being
ivited to nttend the deliberations,
id "decided to restore the profits
o the city of Charleston, after with
holding then for such a time as
might be necessary to defray the
expenses of the litigation now pend
ing in Charleston as to the consta
Ales, provided the city council will
place under the orders of the di
vision chief constable four special
)fficers, to be paid by the city of
Charleston, for the especial pur
pose of assisting in the detection
ond capture of contraband liquor,
in addition to the three city detect
ives already employed in the mak
ing of cases for the recorder's court
against the violators of the dispen
sary law."
Mayor Smyth afterwards assured
the board that its actiont met his
approval, and that he would advise
the Charleston city council to take
the steps necessary to carry it out.
The board made it plain that it
was not satisfied with the showing
mtade and would require greater
.eal by the city officials of Charles
ton in their efforts to enforce the
dispensary law.
Gov. Heyward expressed himself
as thoroughly satisfied with the
outcome of the hearing.
