AC1AINST TIIK DISPENSARY LAW.
Judge Khnontori Releases a Prisoner
Who Was on a Seized Vessel.
Chav.lestox-, S. C, April 1. Judge
Simonton of the United States Circuit
Court filed an important decision on
the State Dispensary law. The case
was one of habeas corpus 011 lehalf of
William T. Elfe, who was arrested by
the State conetabnlary on the sloop
Our Fritz several days ago. The ves
sel sailed from Savannah under a coast
wise license and there took on board
e-ixteeu half barrels of whiskey and fif
Icca casks of export beer. The goods
w ere marked to persons in Wilmington,
N. C, and the bills of lading were
made out for Wilmington, N. C. Elfe
was supercargo of the vessel. The
weather became threatening and the
master determined not to risk ocean
navigation but went by the inside
Iu carrying out this, purpose the
master entered Fort Royal harbor and
went to the mouth of Beaufort River.
The tide being ebb and the wind
ahead, he ca.st anchor four miles below
Beaufort, awaiting flood tinife to go on
Lis voyage. While at anchor in the
daytime the sloop was boarded by a
State constable and his posse, the pe
titioner was arrested and the vessel
nnd cargo confiscated. Judge Simon
ton ordered the release of the priso
ner. The Court says in the decree:
"The voyage was not complete I.
Elfe was on his way in a public navi
gable highway. He had come from a
port in Georgia and was actually en
gaged in inter-State commerce. If h
were ou his way to Wilmington, N. C,
he does not come within any of the
prohibitions of the Dispensary law.
If he were not, but had not yet com
pleted his voyage, the action of tho
State constables was interference with
inter-State commerce. So it is in
conflict with the Constitution of the
United States, and to this extent is
null and void."
In the District Court Judge Braw

of the vessel. The State, however,

The onward march to Pekin began
iu good earnest about ten days ago,
the Japanese imperial guard leading
the van. The distance to be traversed
was at that time about 150 miles, but
the invaders are moving slowly in or
der to give their comrades in Man
churia a chance to join them. It is es
timated that the Chinese who will make
a final stand iu defense of Pekin will
not number more than 100,000, and
the Japanese will doubtless be strong
enough to overcome them without
Whatever the result of the pending
peace negotiations may be, it is not at
all likely that it will lead to an armis
tice before the capture of the city.
The soldiers in the Japanese army
would not be satisfied with anything
less than their triumphal inarch through
the streets of Pekin, and it would
not bo wise to disappoint them. There
is no danger of any wholesale destruc
tion of life and property when the city
is captured. The victors will be 60
elated with their achievement that
they will be in a good humor, and
they will behave as well as the troops
of any other nation would under the
After the fall of this last stronghold
the terms of peace will be speedily
agreed upon, and the invading army

of the wreck of a great empire, while

necessary to maintain the. supremacy
which she has so deservedly won.
DOCTOR IN C; PAPER MONEY.
Counterfeiters are Ingeniously Rais
ing One Dollar Rills to $10.
Omaha, Neb., April 1., Counter
feit bills have appeared in Omaha
showing tliit slnrpers know some
chemioiil that removes the ink from
the paper from which greenback are
manufactured without injuring the
paper. Tlmi the crooks put in other
figures, raising the amount tenfold.
The first National bank received on
Saturday one of the bills, and another
was exhibited to the Merchants' Na
tionnl bank teller. Both had come
from retailers. The bill at the First
National i a ?1 treasury note, paya
ble in coin, of the series of 18t, and
with th likeness of Stanton on one
side. The other is a silver certificate
of the ISO series, on whieh appears
the face of Martha Washington. With
out the use of a glass to follow the
ink stains in the fiber of the paper the
oiily manner in which the spniions
bills can be detected is by the vignettes
on either side. This bttrayaits spu
rious origiu, but afford- no protection
evcej t to experts, who are aware that
these likenesses do not appear on any
t ills of the denomination of $10.
A secret service ageut yesterday said
an alarming feature of the case is that
chemicals are beinjr used by this gang
to remove the figures in the original.
The fiber of the paper in use is sup
rofed to be proof against this sort of
manipulation. Probably two dozen
figures must be removed in each bill
handL d and others substituted.

so. Mr. Allworden told him not to be
making assertions, but to produce
thorn. Mr. Earle remarked that he
did not make assertions and backdown
from them as Mr. Allworden did. Mr.
Allworden jumped up, faced Mr. Earle
and cried: "It's a lie!" Quick a a
flash Mr. Earle slapped his face aud a
fisticuff ensued, the chief and a per-
gaant of police finally separating the
aldermen. Mr. Earle" told Mr. All
worden that had ho not been an old
man he would have broken his face for
him. Nobody was hurt.
THREE SCHOOL ROYS' REVENGE.
They Visit the Schoolmaster' House
and Shoot and Stab II lm
A special from Fioyd Court House.
Virginia, gives an account of an attack
upon Mr. Joseph Sheeler by thre-Sul-phiu
boys who shot and stabbed the
former. It seems that the Stilphins
were once pupils of Sheeler, who ou
one occasion punished oue of thern for
some wrong doing. The young men,
who are regarded as pretty desperate,
went to Sheeler's house and attacked
him with pistol and knife, inflicting
several painful wounds.
The schoolmaster managed to get a
note to the sheriff informing him of
his condition, and begging that a posse
be sent to his relief. When the on
cers reached Sheeler's school boute,
which is in the mountains of Floyd,
they discovered that the three Sul
phins had escaped.
They did not get away, however, be
fore a desperate fight took place.
Some of the schoolmaster's neighbors
had surrounded the house and impris
oned the young men. After a sharp
fight two of the gang got off, leaving
the other on the field, who was taken
in charge by the deputy sheriff.
