If the law requiring all persons
who have liquor in their ho.uses or
who have it shipped for personal use
to secure tags from the state commis
sioner is to be enforced the law and
order league will need the assistance
of Governor Heyward and his consta
bles and several more besides. There
are loits of people who are opposed to
the dispensary and who are opposed
to the sale of whiskey and who want
to see the ililicist traffic put down but
who do not see any harm in having
a lirtle of it in their houses and who
do not feel that tthey should ask per
mission of any one to have it or to
take a drink if they want to take it.
They would like to have a little per
sonal liberty in 'che maitter of what
they shall drink so long as they do not
disturb anyone by their action.
But there will be enough to engage
the officers for awhile in stopping the
illicit sale. The dispensary people
never attempted -to enforce this part
of the law.
Every express brings quite a num

thave no intention of violating the law

The Manufacturer's Record some
time ago sent out a series of questions
to the bankers throughout the cottin
belt pertaining to the present crop,
acreage, ithe condition and the senti

and so on.
Quite a num1Mer of replies were re
ceived and the Record reaches the
following conclusion based upon these
""Cotton growers of the South have,
pound as bh'e desirable minimum price
for this year's crop. Their estimates
of the size of the crop range from as.
low as 7,ooo,ooo bales to as high as
12o,oo0o0 bales, though the genera!
coincensus is the yield will between
1,ooo,ooo and 10,500,000 Ibales."

AS TO WHISKEY AND DISPEN
A Dead Letter in Dispensary Law
That Cannot be Enforced without
the Domiciliary Visits of Con
stables that Caused Much
Indignation During the
Columbia, October 21.-The presi
dent of the Law and Order league at
Prosperity today had his attention
called to a forgotten feature of the
dispensary law, as it relates to the
shipment of whiskey and storing the
same .without tags or certifi'cate.s from
the commissioner. 'Mr. R. T. C. Hun
ter, the. president of the league at
Prosperity, wrote Gen. Youmans, the
assistant attorney general, requesting
his opinion on the law as regards the
storing and shipment of whiskey. It
is presumed that 'Mr. Hunter has spe
cial reference to Newberry county,
where there have 'been a number of
complaints since t>het county voted
out 'the dispensary. Gen. Youmans
pointed out that it was not 'he duty
of the office to advise him on the mat
ters submitted, but it gave the law as
it has been passed on by the supreme
cour.t as follows:
R. T. C. Hunter, President Law and
Order League,Prosperity, S. C.-Dear
Sir: Yours of October iS to Attor
ney General Gunter is r!eived. While
it is the duty of the attorney general,
when required by t-he state officers, to
:onsult and advise with them on ques
:ions of law relating to their official
duties, it does not come within the
cope of his duty to advi e you as to
bhe matters you submit. Neverthe
less, I will state that by :i-c'ion 555
)f the Criminal Code, 'the manufac
'ure, sale, barter or exchange, receipt
:>r acceptance for unlawful use, de
ivery, storing and keeping in posses
;ion within this state, of any liquor
which contains alcohol and is used as
i beverage, except as is provided in
:he dispensary law, is prohibited un
ier a penalty.
Our supreme court held in the state
is M;cGltee, 555 S. C., 247, -that liquor
>urchased from without the state for
personal use is not contraband, sim
ply because tihe purchaser does not
>rocure and attach to it from the
state chemis:t, a certificate of puri'ty
is provided 'by law.
'The same court held later that un
ier the dispensary law it is a criminal
>ffence to store or keep alcoholic ii
auors .for personal use without hay
ng fixed 'on ,the vessels containing it
.abels obtained from -'he state corn
Tihe Dispensary Stirred Up.
Dispensary ingpectors 'hereafter, ae
:or'ding .to an order issued 'by Coin
:nisioner Tatum a short time ago,
nust be prepared to swear to the ac
::uracy of their report on eachi dis
pensary checked up. This order is
'he result of the discovery that iany
shortages occur by the use o-f dum
ries or ihalf emp'ty cases that have
been checked by inspecstors as fnl
Mr. Tatum said today that after the
shortage in Charleston and a recent
>ne in a town in the upper part of the
state 'he was convinced 'that the in
;pectors heretofore had been too per
Eunctory. He discovered th'at cases
supposed to be full wvould contain
>nlly half the number of bottles or be
itirely empty. This happened some
me ago with a dispenser in Fairfield
:ounty. All inspectors were 'then no
:ified that every box mus.t 'be inspect
~d and the inspector absolutely sat
sfied that the seals had not been 'bro-i
"An honest dispenser will not ob.lect
o an examination of t'his kind," said
VIr. Tatum, "and we want to get rid
f the dishonest ones. My order makes
t necessary for the inspector's re
>ort to be absolutely accurate, and
~hould a 'shortage occur through any
naccuracy in the report it is then
he inspector's fault and he is respons
ime, but on account of the delay of
eats and windows, we will not be ableI
:0 get into 'the building under t'hree
r four weeks. Rev. J. H. Graves has
>een a failhful servant of this charge
nd deserves a great deal of credit for
is un'tiring efforts to complete the
