From what can he learned of t'he

the same woman. Last year John
Burton claimed her as his woman
and this year Frank Jones says that
he had maried her. But it seems that
Burton wasn't satisfied. so Saturday
afternoon he goes in search of Jones
and cfie woman, which resulted in
Burton's getting shot, the affair
taking place somewhere between Mr.

Mr. Thos. J. Wilson Explains Why
The Books of Registration Were
Not Open on the 7th.
i hipe the f,llowing explanation
will be satisfactorv the voters of
Newberry county as to why the
books of registration were not open
on Monday last:
Article 2. Section iI. Of the con
stitution of the state on the right of
sufferage reads as follows: The regis
tration books shall close at least
thirty days before an e1ction. during
which time transfers and registration
shall not he legal.
Provided persons who will become
of age during that period shall be
entitled to registration before the
books are closed. T was notified last
Saturday by Fred. H. Dominick.
dhairman of commissioners of elec
tion that an election would be held
in this county on Tuesday. August
29. 1905. Upon the question of dis
pensary or no dispensary.
After I received Mr. Dominick's
letter saying that the election was
ordered I knew according to the
above article of the con'stitution I
would not be allowed to open the
books of registration on Monday the
7th. But to satisfy the voters that I
intended to do my duty as I knew it.
I wrote the following letter to the
Slighs. August 1. 190.
Hon. U. X. Gunter. Jr.. Attorney Gen
eral of Stith Carolina. Co!um
bia. S. C.:
Dear Sir.-There is going to be an
election called in this county on the
question of dispensary or no dispen
sarv. which I suppose you have al
ready been informed. If this elec
tion is called any time during the
month of August will it be legal for
us to open our books of registration
on Monday the 7th inst? Wai-ting
your earliest reply.
Yours very respectfully.
Thos. J. Wilson.
Chairman of board ,f registration.
Newberry. S. C.
Thos. J. WVilson. Esq.. Chairman of
Board of Registration of Newberry
County. Slighs, S. C. Dear Sir-In
answer to your letter of the 1st inst..
I beg to say that the law requires the
registration books to be closed for
thirty days preceding a special elec
tion, but you cannot close them upon
the mere expectation that a specialI
election will be ordered within thirty
rav.-. In ordler tooccasion ih.e close
)f the 'books, the election must 'have
been already ordered by the proper
authority to be held within thirty
days. If the election hias not been
rdepd before Monday 7th, you will
have ti openl your books on thatt clay.

could no't accommodate those and
all others who migh-t h.ave applied.
But I want to say in all good humor
tha: it makes no difference to the

TILLMAN ON DISCLOSURES.I
Says They Will Force Legislature to
Amend-Dispensary not Hurt.
Special to Newt and Courir.
Greenwood, August 11.-"The
Spartanburg investigation will have
the effect of making the ieslatmre
something in regard to the status of
the liquor question in this state."
This is what Senator Benjamin
Ryan Tillman, father of the South
Carolina dispensary and its chief ad
vocate, said to J. R. McGhee. of
G;reewoo~d Indcex, yesterday.
I don't believe the p)eo ple of the
State are going tio rid themselves o f
the met;hod because a set or rascaus
are running it. .\nd. as I haive said
he fo re, and h1ave aidvi cated befi re.
ie dispensary is the propler solution
f t4?e qjuesti' ni in this state."
Snator Tilhunan was' on his way
from the State Farmers' institute.
where he had been "to teach them
how. to re hogs." a he expressed
it. The senator looks well and hearty
and the old-time Tillman. with all
vigor and the matter->i-iacness
was in ev(leice a. he talked :, the
ei'tor Vf the In 1dex. HIs characteri
tic phraseology. t~gether with .s
forcefulness and earnestness. was
most noticeable. and when he spoke
of his pet, the dispensary, a fatherly
light was in his eye.
Speaking of the startling revela
tions-as some would call them
being made in the inner and outer
workings of the system in Spartan
burg, the senator said that most of
the witnesses so far seemed to be
disappointed office-seekers. and as
for the testimony of Supervisor
Miles. he said that there were possi
bly a hundred men in the state to
day wik could say the same thing.
"That they suspected there was d:s
"But." he said. "he wanted the iim
it and if there was wrong-doing. dis
Senator Tillman declared his faith
in 'the people of the state as to their
retaining the dispensary. He said
that county control would not do;
that the large towns like Columbia,
Charles-ton. Spartanburg and Green
ville would virtually have been bar
"The greatest, most intrinsic. val
uable thing about the dispensary
system is the fact that it destroys
the opportunity for personal greed."
When asked directly by his inter
viewer as to the "personal greed"
now causing all the trouble in the
dispensary. as evidenced by the testi
mony at Spartanburg and elsewhere,
the senator's countenance lit up with
a peculiar warmth as he replied:
"The legislattre -had run in a whole
lot of changes and infernal alterations,
and now they expect the people to
kill it on account of these. If thie
board of directors had been abolished
years ago all this trouble would not
have come up. When I was governor,
and in charge of the workings of the
dispensary, I kept in touch with every
man on the constabulary. every man.
in the whole affair."
W1hen asked the direct question by
the editor of the Index, "Don't you,
senator, in view af all the informa
tion as given out by the Spartanburg
investigation, in view of all the pub
ic opiniin and hearsay, realy be
lieve that the dispensary system as
the law now stands presents good
opportunities for graft?"
The senator replied unequivocally:
No. I do not. W\ouild you abolish
'the supervisor's office at Greenville
on account of the fact that thre
seems to 'be opportunity for graft?"
Wen the question of state control
was brought up. he said that it was
the only way to run the dispensary.
"If counties control, or rather, if
the cotunties should decide t-his ques
tion for themselves, it would mean
tn!at the city in which the dispensary
w~as located would get all the pecumt
ary benefi't. As it stands now, each
school district in the county gets a
portion of t'he fund. 'thus benefiting
He said 'that political enemies of the
dispensary were takig adv'antage. as
a mater of fact, magnifying the dis
content and dissatisfaction, and in this
way hoped to destroy it.
The senator gav'e out that he :had
been invited to speak at Anderson
next Wednesday. the t6th, and that
on that day he was going to give
them a remedy for 'the troubles of
the dispensary. He was going to
tell them "the right phiysic to take,"
and would be glad to meet any one
on the stump.
