Eutored April 28, 1908 at Pickens, M. C., as second class mntter. under act of Congress of March 8, 1879. VOL XXXV PICKENS, SOUTH CAROLINA, WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 20, 1905 THE DISPENSARY ELECTION' -IN PICKENS DECLARED IN ACCORD WITH THE BRICE ACT. First Round In Fight Won by People. Report of Special Referee. Mr. A. J. Boggs, appointed special referee to tako testimoiey in the contested dispenga'y lec. tion in Pickens county, -has filed his report with the clerk of the state supreme court. The supreme court will convene specially to hoar the arguments in this case and in the Farnum case, but the date for the special meeting has not been set. The report submitted by Mr. 13oggs is accompanied by the testi.. mony taken in the case. Mr. J. P. Cary represented the people who voted the dispensary out of Piak ens county. There was some talk of the election not having been held and of the result not having been declared properly, and the matter was taken before the chief justice who ordered testimoney taken and the entire matter re ferred to the supreme court as a whole. In the Farnum case, Senators Hay and Christensen and Mr. Lyon will appear before the special referee, ex Judge Jas. T. Jziar at OiangebUrg, to-morrow and will give their testimoney in. the case. When this is done J. S. Farnum, beer dispenser in Charleston will reply, stating why he did not give to the dispensary investigating committee certain papers in his possession. When the referee gets all of this information he will make a finding on the facts and will submit the testimony with his report to the supreme court. It is supposed that as soon as Judge Izar does this the chief jus tice will call the supreme court together. Following is the report of A. J. noggs, special r4eree, in the case of J. S. Wilson, relator, against J. E. Cox, 0. 11 Hamilton, S. H. ii Brown and T. O.
