WEDNESDAY, May 16. 1894. e<
The Supreme Court says it is Pro- H
That is the conclusion of the Sapreme p
Court on the liquor question. p
They decide that no city has a right a
to issue licenses and anybody who sella b
whiskey can be proceeded against un? b
der the laws in force previous to 1892. h
The municipalities having no power to &
grant licenses it appears to be the idea
of the court that the same penalty F
would attach to dealers in whiskey now c
as did to a violator of the license laws
in force previous to 1892.
Contrary to general expectation the
Supreme Court had not a word to say
about the law of 1898. They completely
ignored it and that law is still a subject
of controversy and may laad to
further complications in the situation.
There was a large crowd present in the
Supreme Court room when the Judges
took their seats.
Justice Mclver as soon as court was
convened commenced the reading of
the decision which is as follows:
The State of 8outh Carolina,
In the Supreme Court.
April Term, 1894.
J. L. Barringe'r, et aL, vs. The City
Council of Florence, ex parte, J. Ellis
The** two cases instituted in the
original jurisdiction of this eourt l>eiog
of a kindred nature, though not involving
the same questions were heard and
will be considered together.
The first is a case asking for an injunction
to restrain the eity council of
Florence from granting license* fc>9 the
sale of spiritnous liquors, upon the
ground that there is now no law authorizing
the granting of such licenses,
and therefore that threatened action of
said eity council in this respect is "ultravires.'1
The second is a case in which the .
petitioner applies, under a writ of i
habeas corpus, heretofore issued for hie
discharge from custody, in which he is
held under a warrant issued by the
mavor of the city of Florence, who is
invested by the charter of silid city
with all the powers of a trial jostioe,
charging the petitioner with telling
spirituous liqnors without a license, In
violation of an ordinanoe of the city,
as well as in violation of the laws of
the State. Inasmuch as one of these
cases involves the libertyjof the citizens,
this court deems it to be its duty to ren^
der asj prompt a decision as possible.
The conrt will, therefore, proceed simply
to decide the questions presented in
these cases, without undertaking now
to give the reasons for the conclusions
which will, however, be hereafter done
in an opinion which will be prepared
and filed as soon as practicable.
The court decides that under tha law
as it now stands, there is no authority
invested with the power to grant licenses
/or the sale of spirituous liquors
within the limits of this State, and
hence the action of the city council of
Florence in gran ting snch 1 lotnsss would
be '.'ultra vires" audabeoiutflTttfdt ft?d <
therefore, the injunction, as asked for,by
the petitioners, in the case first named
must be granted. .
In the second case the petitioner
moves for his discharge from enitody
upon the ground that there is now no.
law forbidding the tale of spirituous
liquors within the limits of this l3taV?..
This court decides that this is
ken view of the law. On the ooctnvy
we hold that the act of 1893, commonly
called the dispensary act, having been
declared unconstitutional in aU its
provisions, except that forbidding the
granting of licenses to sell spixlinoao
liquors, after the day therein ntumed.
the repealing clauses of that act fail,
and m ast be regarded as if never enacted
and hence the previous law forbidding
the sale of spirituous liquors with out a
license remains of force, under which
the petitioner may lawfully be ind icted.
In addition to this he may also be proceeded
against for a violation of the ordinance
of the city of Florence mentioned
in the warrant under which he
has been arrested and is now held in
It is, therefore, ordered that, in the
case first named in the title of this order,
an injunction do issue as prayed
for in this petition.
It is futher ordered that, in the second
case named in the title hereof, the motion
of the petitioner for a discharge be
refused; and that the said J Ellis Branson
Joe remanded to the custody of the
chief of polioe of the city of Florence to
be by him rafely kept until he is thence
delivered by due course of law. This

The Whiskey Question.
Our State is in an anomalous condion
so far as the sale of whiskey is couirned.
The Supreme Court says that
o city council, or other authority can
rant licenses for the sale ot intoxicating
quors. Those who do sell may be
rosecutedand punished under laws in
>rce prior to the passage of the disensary
bill. A City Council may hnose
fines and punish by impri onment
coording to the power Tested in them
>y their charter. The punishment to
>e infl'eted by the Cireuit Court, is regu
ited by section 1734 of the General
Statutes which is as follows:
"Any person violating any of the
>ro virions of thii chapter shall, a poo
onviction thereof, be fined in a sum of
lot lees than $300, or imprisoned for a
erm of not less than six months, or
>oth fined and imprisoned in the discretion
of the Court trying the same:
Provided, That one half of all fines imjosed

How to Tan Leather.

and goat skins than selling them at two da

at 40 or 50 cents per pound. t*
