THAT OVERLOAD OF LIQUOR.
Many of the Firms Who Sold the
Liquor to the Dispensary Quite
Willing to Take it Back.
Columbia, April 17.-Whether it is
because they are afraid of the credit
of the dispensary or because they ap
preciate the justice of the demand for
the return of the liquors bought by
the old board of control, or that they
expect to do other business with the
new board or that tiey are thankful
to quit doing business with the dis
pensary did not appear on the face
of the offers today. The fact, how
ever, remains that the board, and per
haps others, were surprised to hear
the willingness with which the liquor
firms agreed to take back their liquor
under the demand of the new board
that they receive the liquor for which
they say there is no sale, or show,
valid and proper contracts. The new
board says there is fully $400,000
worth of high-priced and unsalable
liquor on hand, bought by the old
board, for which they have no use.
Mr. J. E. McDonald, representing
the new board, has written a number
of firms that the new board wishes to
return this liquor, but if the state is
required to retain the liquor it is all
well and good.
Today a number of the firms,
through their counsel> asked that they
might have the liquor returned. Some
~of them said they wished to have the
freight money, but Catherwood seem
ea willing to pay his own freight,
from what -is reported - of the board
Mr. G. H. Charles, the former clerk
of the old board of directors, made a
statement to the board today in which
he said that there was no absolute sys
tem of ordering liquor, and that no
special form of contract-was used in
ordering liquor. The old board, he
said, ordered considerable liquor in
November, 1904; for the ChAistmas
''In that year,'' Mr. Charles ex
plained, ''thie investigating commit

fered in other ways so often that it
was impossible to do bysiness regular

and $3 goods, which Chairman Evans
afterward informe'd him- were bought
outright for the neiv bottling system.
He said that this great blanket or

Towill, while Director Boykin was in
No decision was reached about the
legality of the purchases. In fact, At
torney McDonald has not yet made his
report, and has evidently not reached
a conclusion himself. The meeting
was adjourned at 2:30 until tomorrow
in order to allow for the examination
of other' kitnesses.
No member of the old board was
present at the hearing today, although
the members had been formally in
vited. Mr. Towill was the only mem
ber of the old board in the city, and
he was not at the state dispensary
during the day.
A great many liquor firms and their
salesmen and lawyers were present.
Among those represented were: S.
Grabfelder & Co., of Louisville, who
was also represented by the vice pres
ident of the compan'y, Mr. Gratz;
Jack Cranston and H. W. Catherwood,
of H. & H. W. Catherwood; M. A.
Goodman, Ullman & Co.; I. Trager,

I earnestly trust that there will be
a large attendance upon the Georgia
Mothers' congress, which will meet
in Atlanta, April 23, 24 and 25. This
is the first Mothers' congress to meet
in the south, the fore-runner, I hope
of many others. Surely it is of im
mense importance to the future of the
south that our women should learn
all that it is possible to acquire of
the duties and responsibilities of the
most sacred of all vocations, mother
hood, and of t~he problems of child
hood. I wish it understood that it is
not necessary to belong to any organ
ization to be enrolled as a delegate of
the' congress. Any woman interested
in the vital questions that will be dis
cssed is invited to appoint herself a
delegate and come.
Speakers of national reputation
will be present and the. programme,
which will be given to the press a lit
tle later, will comprise such topies as
Adolesence, The Special Needs of a
Boy and the Girl, The Age of Spirit
ual Awakening, the Toiling Children,
Some of the Evils and Defects of our
Educational System, The Religious
Training of the Child, The Mothering
of the Unfortunate Children, Child
Study Circles, The Physical Care of

As a southern woman, I beg the .i

to triplets. He was delighted almost

said, "I must go right in and wake up

hurry on his clothes, brought him in
about half awake, and stood him be
fore the triplets.
"Aren't they dandies?" he asked.
Dooley gazed at them in a semi
awakened state and, still rubbing the
sleep from his eyes, replied: "Yes;
they're all right. I think I would

A member of the travelling fratern
ity was waiting for a train at a small
railway station in northern New
Hampshire. where was gathered the
usual number of people whose daily
diversion is "to see what is going on
at the dee-po.'' Among the later ar
rivals was William Ray, well known
in that section for his ready wit. His
appearance was the occasion of such
salutations as "Good mornng, Ray,"
"Hello Rav." from all sides.
Business being dull that morning,
the stranger, thinking this an op por
tunlity to ''drum'' up a little fun,
turned to the newcomer and inquired:
"Are you an X-ray?''
Without hesitaton William F. re
nlied: "'I don 't know as I'mn an X
