OUNTIES REFUSED TO PAY POLL TAX IT. D MITCHELL AND ARCHIE WIL 1 SON ARRESTED AND FORCED TO PAY UP WITH ADDED COSTS Lexington, Jan. 5.?The noted T. D. Mitchell, who has so often been I in the toils for offenses of various t kinds, was arrested here Monday for t refusal to pay poll tax. Mitchell is s now said to be a resident of Colum- > bia but resided in this county at c Brookland, in 1907. Mitchell pos- J itively refused to pay * the treasurer, c claiming that he was not a resident c of this county and, therefore, was r not liable to pay a poll. County j. Treasurer Shealy promptly went before Magistrate Derrick and had a warrant issued for Mitchell. The c warrant was placed in the hands of h Sheriff Corley, who made the ar- r, rest. He was given a hearing be- Q fore Magistrste Derrick and was or.1 .1 ...... Utc ? ? ?.1 _ r.- -- h IU IUA dliu cUbU a Illic of $7 and all costs. Mitchell paid the fine and was released. a Yesterday Archie Wilson, anoth- c er white man, who resides near New j Brookland, was arrested upon the same charge. He was given a hearing before Magistrate Derrick and a was fined $7 and all costs and or v\ dered to pay his poll. p This makes the third case that ^ has come before the officers for nonpayment of pod tax. ^ A LIVE, PROGRESSIVE SOUTHERN ?

It was ^ ;tated a few days ago that it was ^ eery likely that the shop would be st dosed with the coming of the new H fear, for the simple reason that the' gi )wner of the building in which the g' lispc nsary is located had refused to * erent the building io the county ^ >oard for another year. This was m rue, but when Mr. R. L. Keisler,1 T hairrr.an of the county dispensary tr toard, began to pack up making ^ eady to close the shop on the 1st tc f January, the owner reconsidered is former action and told Mr. Keis- fi: :r that he might have the building ! s long as he wanted it, and as a I nncKnininro * T ' ^iiov^uv.uvvv- uiv. uupv.iioai y Cll J-?CW- | UJ ;dale will continue in force. er It is not known what action, if to ny, will be taken by those who d* rere instrumental in getting up the ec etition asking that the dispensary e "cut out," but it is said that they n nil probably push the matter fur- 0 ler. But since it is generally beeved by a great many people of lis county that the Legislature at ae coming session will pass a State ride prohibition law, and thus do way with all of the dispensaries, it ? hardly probable that any steps 8l rill be taken by the Prohibitionists ntil after the adjournment of the .egislature. j On last Thursday the residence of ^ Ir. Anderson Sligh, near Summit, Jfj* ras destroyed by fire, with all its fe ont^ots. The origin of the fire is as not been learned here. It is said th lat Mr. Sligh's loss will be very; se eavy. I cc Yesterday was salesday, and t;r lere was a very large crowd of i re eople in town. There was not a Si real deal of property to be sold, t0 nd the clerk soon cleared his books . . ot here was a lack oi the usual spiritd bidding, but this was due, it is lid, to the fact that the property wi pld was not 1 ated in the better 11 ;ction of the county. The personproperty of the late J. W. Long, hich consisted of several thous- ' ?,i ii.i nu;idis win lit Ul Illlllllij.; blOCK i distant States, as well, as the pen accounts and unpaid notes ot |K lr. Long was sold. The prices !V aid, in each case, were nothing1 ?% ampared to the prices paid for the, imous Seminole stock, being ri- ice iculously low. I ^ 'HE S.S. 15. CO.
