( Special to the Associated Press. ) Contrary to public expectations , the- whisky constabulary readied hero on. Sunday night In their re treat from Darlington. They took an early morning train from the city and piocceded to Orangeburg , about , eighty miles north of here , where they areirestlng nt present. The object of their visit there Is not known , but it Is presumed It Is for the purpose of searching for contraband whisky. The dis pensaries here are closely guarded by police men at night , but. are doing very little busi ness. The "blln * . . tigers" are open , and there Is no trouble In getting all the liquor one may want without the seal of the Palmetto state blown In the bottle. Suits Involving the constitutionality of the dispensary law were argued before the supreme premo court three months ago. and no de cision has yet been rendered by the three judges of the court. Two are what is known here as "conservatives" Justices McDow and McGowan the third justice is an out and out Tlllmanlte. It Is certain that an early decision of the court on the constitu tionality of the dispensary law would have done much toward- quieting the excitement created by Its enforcement. COLUMBIA , S.

As soon as the emergency shall no longer exist the governor will relinquish control and re store the former status. Governor Tlllman addressed the militia hero today , to make an explanation of his position and the duty of soldiery and ex plaining the low In the cose which Is now troubling the state , and maintaining his right to enforce the laws as he understands Governor Tlllman 1ms received the follow ing telegram from Clerk of the Court W. H. Ingram at Slimier : "J. J. Dargan met the northbound train today , arrested Constable Kaln on hltt way to Columbia In custody of McKnlght , deputy sheriff.

Whether It was due to the warm en couragement of the Immense nudlenco last evening that packed Boyd's from orchestra rail to gallery heights , or whether It was attributable to the worth of the performance , matters little , "Panjandrum" made a most pronounced Impression , Do Wolf Hopper am Ida company receiving an ovation ut once spontaneous and hearty. Critical judgment ns to the merit of the performance pales In the face of so much scenic splendor and magnificent costuming but these , removed from the present pro duction , would leave this olln podrlda noth ing to stand upon , nothing but a skeletonized studv of lvrc ! writing that has a ghostly sug gestion of having been heard before. "Pan jandrum. " Is truly a "thing of shreds and pa"teh'ejC'.mado up from countless sources , 'but ' right , cleverly strung together by the composesrs' "of this latest vehicle , built for Hopper atuf his confreres. But "Panjan drum" Js tame nnd unprofitable artistically alongside the much more brilliant score of "Wang. " The book lacks many of the es sentials of enduring fame , while the score Is lustreless except for the motif , which has an up to datcness about It that Is decidedly palatable. Mr. Hopper was In his merriest mood last night , and between his grotesquery and his legs ho .emphasized his former reputation. Next to Mr. Hopper a great deal of the weight of the opera falls upon the plump nnd pretty shoulders of Delia Fox , who capers and curoccoles through the role of Puqtiltnylth delightful grace nnd brilliancy. Miss Fox' Id singing very much better than last reason when seen here. The vocal work , liowover , falls upon Miss Grace Golden , a comparatively now comer to the comic opera stiigo. She bus a rich and sympathetic soprano which shows very careful training. Edward Stanley , the tenor of the company , IB unoffending , nnd that Is considerable In Ills favor. Duo of the genuine hits of the | ) Iny Is made by Alfred Klein , who as a "Sad Sea Dog" Is a worthy foil for the minor of Hopper. I'KltSOfi.ll , I'.lll.KlltA I'IIS.
