THK DAVIS BRIDGE. The. Journal publishes this mornhip the report of Frank C. Osborn of Cleveland, one ol the leadinp onpi- auora of tbe United States, on the Dav'.a bridge. Engineer Osborn ghowa that the bridge- Is three feet short and only ji twenty pound bridge where the specifications call for eighty pounds Ho shows that the shoe used to piece out brings tlie weight onto the edge of the pier and that it ia already crumbl- IDC »way under the improper weight placed upon It. The report confirms the report of Engineer Colemun which was mysteriously suppressed. This bridge was built over Eel river at about Twenty-fifth street, at n, cost of $G,000. The money was paid 'or it almost in full before its completion and acceptance. No engineer was employed to po over the original spocifi- ciitlons. County Engineer Beck, who has had no experience in bridge work, alono examined them. They were made by the brldfro men and even then wcro not conformed to. The Commissioners, the Auditor and his deputy aad the County Surveyor are placed in a very bad light before the public. Any one can see that the bridge is weak and one of the beat engineers In the United States states that it ought at once be condemned as unsafe. Upon those officers rested the work 'of performing this public duty and there has been woful neglect to say the least. THE JACKWirrOWNSHIP BRIDGE Right on top of the Davis bridge scandal cornea another complaint about the Jackson township bridge. The Lafayette Bridge Company got the contract for $871,50. The lowest bid was $654. The Lafayette Bridge Company is constructing a bridge in a neighboring county over Eel river The Williamsport stone quarry men are doing the atone work under a subcontract. Williamsport and Lafayette are only a few mllea apart and the two companies seem to work together. When the Commissioners came to examine the bide on the Jaokaop township bridgothey employed the Williamsport stone quarry agent as an engineer to paee on the bida. The result waa that the lower bids were thrown out and the Lafayette company got the contract. When it came to opening the bide for the atone work which will amount to about $1.700. Contractor Gleltz of this city had the low. eel bid on the specifications by $2 per yard but at the last moment other bids were called for. The bids wore opened in secret and Contractor GleiU of this city had a bid of J9.75 per yard. Tho WlUiamsport atone quarry man who had passed on the bridges had a bid of f9.75 for the same work and ho was given the con. tract. Thus the man who gave the contract to the Lafayette company as an engineer was given the preference over a homo bidder at the same figure. It was a remarkable /act that the bids should bo exactly the tamo. It waa remarkable that the Commissioners should refuse to give employment to home people whonHt costs no more to do so. Mr. Gloitz is naturally indignant as his card In another column bhows. THK Ph»ros~after attacking the City Clerk for not making his reports attacks the Journal for not defendltg him. This ia characteristic of the Pharos and ehowithe deceit and trickery It habitually indulges in. The last democratic clerk made no rf ports for two or three years yet the Pharos ;aid nothing. Tho Journal has no XCUBO to offor for any departure, however trivial, from the regulations. Tho Clerk made his January report last evening and tbe Pharos should pjlvo him proper credit. COUNCILMAN BEAM voted against the Erie avenue purchase. Mayor Read and the other four democrats could have voted with him and defeated it. Tho Pharos attacks its democratic council, and as the Journal is not defending Mayor Read, who holds the deciding vote, ithas nothing to say. The Pharos and Us council for It. . . IT Is doubtful whether old John Davis himself could walk across the Davis bridge with safety. THE DISPENSARY ACT. Summary of South Carolina's Po. ouliar Liquor Law. Gov.

Jiynjiiinin R Tillin;i.n, who 1'ivMrtus ov«r tho destinies of the Palmetto state wit.h con- eideruble graeo and some firmness, is a firm believer In the populist idea of paternalism. His influence was not trrciit enough to command the adoption by the United States congress of fiscal reforms and moral statutes; so he went quietly to work at Columbia, the pretty capital of South Carolina, and with STATE DISPENSARY AT COLUMBIA, tho aid of his democratic-populist followers passed a law known to tho world as tho "dispensary net." This law lias been in force since July 1, 1893. Its advocates claim that it has solved the liquor problem, but its opponents assort with equal firmness that it has retarded th<: growth of genuine temperance sentiment and made the state of South Carolina ridiculous in the eyes of the world. ]Jc that us it may, the people of the United States have watched the effect of tho dispensary act with excusable interest, even though but few have familiarized themselves with its provisions. An impartial observer would be apt to oonsider tho ]aw reasonably benellccnt, provided tho state government had at its disposal -sufficient funds and informers to enforce it. The law contains twenty-five sections. Its salient points might be summarized as follows: No one is allowed to manufacture, sell, barter or exchange, or keep or offer for sale, any spirituous, malt, vinous, fermented or other intoxicating liquors except regularly appointed state dispensers. It provides for the appointment of a dispensary commissioner, at an annual nalary of 51,800 a year, and such assistants as he may require to transact the nffairs of his office. All liquor sold by the state dispensary must be tested by the chemist of tho Soutli Carolina college, and no liquor must bo sold to county dispensers for more than BO per cent, above tho net cost; all profits to be paid by the stain dispenser to the state treasurer monthly. Each package of liquor sold by the state dispensary must have attached to it a certificate stating that the contents have Ix-en purchased in accordance with the provisions of law. Before shipping liquor to county dispensers it must be put into packages of not less than one- hali pint nor more than five gallons, and county dispensers must, not break sueh packages or open the same for any reason whatever. Goods must bo sold liy package only, and purchasers nre prohibited from opening them on the premises. Tlu> state dispensary is under tho supervision of a state board of control, and the county dispensaries are governed by county boards of control con- Bistiii!,' of three persons who must not be addicted to the USD of intoxicating 1 liquors. If.any county dispenser, or his clerks, siiull buy liquors from any other person except the state commis- ho is tfuiity of a misdemeanor WARRANTED US. STANDARD PROOF Tim OFFICIAL LABEL. •which is punishable by fins or imprisonment. Persons desiring to be made county dispensers must not be addicted to the use of intoxicants, must be citizens of tho United .States, and give a bond of 83,000, said bond belnj for thc.pseotthc county or any individual •who"nmy be ilainag-ed By reason of any. violation of the provision;, of the liquor law. There may be one dispenser appointed for ouch county, whose plaoo of business must bo at the county seat, except for the city of Charleston, v.-heri: there may be ion dispensers, and the city of Columbia, whorn Uicj'.v may be three dispensers. In the judgment of county boards of control dispen- Kiries may bis established in towns oilier than the county seat. County dispensers aru required to take a solemn oath that they will carry out every provision of the law and that they will Hot sell ffoods to minors, intoxicated persons or persuns known to be habitual drunkards, nor mur>t they charge more than no per cent, libovc cost for any and all liquors sold by them, llefoiv selling or deliverinj; intoxicants to any person, they must insist upon having filed printed or written requests, suiting the atfc and residence of the signer, for whom and whose use tile liquor is required, the quantity and kind wanted, anil the true name of the applicant. A heavy penalty is provided for dispensers g-uilty of adulterating- or u-eaki-ninp with water the chemically pure liquors furnished by tho state eomiaissiojicr. Licensed (iruiorists limy purchase liquor for compounding medicines and extracts that cannot be used as beverages. They can obtain necessary supplies at the county dispensaries at an nd- v.iJiCL-of ID percent, over net cost. Places where intoxicating liquors are sold for drinking purposes, in violation of this act, are d'cclarod common nuisances, and must be soixrd by tin-sheriff anil their owners fined and imprisoned. Section -~> of tiie :u'.t, prohibits thi>. briliK'nfT "f li'pi"r into the state, by any person, and fi.vt>s ;i penalty of .«.V« for cae.h olVense and imprisonment in the, county jail for one year. Navigation, railroad and express companies which liiiowintrly transport or briny liquor into the state, are subject to a fine o£S">0'J f»r oach oil'onsc, and knowledge on tbe part of any afrcnt of such company is deemed "guilty knowledge." The governor'is fjivcn authority to appoint state constables at S:; per day and expenses to enforce the various provisions of the act, which, by the way, repeals no local laws prohibiting the sale of intoxicating liquors. Gov. Tillmaa. who hah been called the father of the dispensary l;nv, claims that its results have so far been pratifyinir. The people of the state are gvtting- pure lirjunr at .1 fair price. It is true the stnte commissioner charges fifty per eent. profit and the county dispensers add another fifty per cent, before the liquor reaches the consumer, but one hundred per cent, is considered n very small margin in the whisky business. The state dispensary at Columbia Is unquestionably the largest wholesale liquor house in the south. It occupies a preat double store building- at the edge of the state capital grounds. It was for- Highcst of all in Leavening Power.— Latest U. S. Gov't Report. Baking Powder ABSOLUTEIY PURE BOTTLIMO DEPABTMEST. merly occupied by the state department of agriculture, a bureau which was legislated out of existence a few years Bg-o. In its place the populist legislature established a state agricultural college which is being conducted in conformity with the most modern ideas. Tho affairs of th« dispennary are inanaped by Mr. D. II. Troxler, who bears the official title of state liquor commissioner, Mr. Troxler is an ablo executive officer and probably the only manager of a gigantic wholesale liquor house who is a total ab« stainer. The state commissioner is responsible for many things, lie must see that every flask of liquor is properly lubcied. The labels—a picture of ono Of them forms the subject for an illustration—are very pretty, :md arc af- iixed to the bottles Iry a little army of women anfl ffirJs. The dispensary is supplied with the latest, improved machinery for drawing liquor from barrels and vats. It has a steam stopper machine for oorkiny bottles and a bottlinir machine. Kvery package, after having- been examined, is closed with sealinff wux on wliioh is impressed the official state stamp. The state government lias had considerable trouble with a number of transportation companies whose managers have violated the law many times. Peace cannot be restored until the supreme court, of the United States has passed authoritatively on the constitutionality of the dispensary act. Meanwhile spies by the score are kept busy hunting up bootleggers, manager.') of so-ciilli.'d dubrooms and Other violators of the law. It ra:iy upem st.nuuw that thousands of thirstv South Carolinians would rather pay exorbitant prices to illicit dealers for poisonous stuff than buy pure goods from the official county dispensers. Tho only explanation can be the human weakness for forbidden fruit- Many citizens object to the law because it lias created a numerous body of professional spies who are recruited from a questionable stratum of society. The idea of a state constabulary is repulsive to many who take a sincere interest in the temperance movement. It is, to say the least, un-American, and lias but little excuse for existing in a country where the people are clothed with law-making powers. I.'.ut it is entirely too early to pass a. just opinion on the merits or demerits of the dispensary act. After a trial of two years tile people <>f South Carolina can return to their old system of liiea.1 option, or they can rid the existing law of tiome of its objectionable features. In tho mennlime the. Tili- nianite plan will be watched with interest by the nation at lai-ge. G. \V. tt'Kirl'lEBT. TOLD BY THEIR FINGER TIPS. Mule rickiiocketx Almnxt liivurlubly Are CoiMiint Cieurotti.' Smokers. "In my entire experience," said a \vell known Chicago police justice, "1 do not remember a. single pickpocket, who had white linger tips. The very last one of them is a cigarette fiend and the juices of tobacco stain the ends of the digits a dirty yellow." lie proceeded to declare that so in- llexibly is this true that when a culprit is brought before him on a charge <>f emptying pockets and reticules the state of tl-.e finger lips is accepted as corroborative evidence of innocence or guilt The Chicago pickpocket is a nervous, wiry, shrewd, alert and illiterate fcl- ]o\v whose work demands a stimulus which docs not exhilarate, and he finds it in the cigarette, which he fully believes is charged with some hypnotic or narcotic drug. JIu does not, as a rule, alt'ect opium direct, although many of the-female experts are pronounced morphine n'ends. However uupalatablc to national pride it may be yet the fact remains that nearly or <iuite all of the Chicago gentry arc natives of the United States. They are graduates of the streets and slums, have no knowledge of books and never read the newspapers for the best of all reasons. While shrewd and able to talk glibly, yet from the standpoint of the grammarian they talk badlj-. Nothing can be more admirable than the adroit manner in which they conduct their cases when under arrest. They make no confessions under "sweating" processes, but frankly admit their offense—if caught in the fact and the stolen property is found in their possession. It is significant, however, and a Bad commentary upon the efficiency of the law's administration that so few of the light-fingered reach Joli«t They are frequently arrested, but readily furnish bail and by means of continuances and divers other devices contrive to stave off trial until Prosecuting' witnesses disappear or die. Nothing will daunt them and they "carry off things" in the court room with as decided nonchalance, if not with as great elan, as the Artful Dodger under the same trying circumstances. The profitableness of the vile trade is shown in the fact that when arrested the pickpocket almost invariably has money provided for his defense. The most successful ones invariably dress well and spend money freely. It is scarcely possible to estimate the extent of their depredations, for tlie reason that their dexterity is such that a large majority of the victims have no consciousness of the robbery. When they finally miss their pocketbooks. diamonds, or Other valuables they eon- chide they ha.ye lost or mislaid them, and. deciding that what has been lost is gone irrevocably, they say nothing about the matter. J^Tlie cotton and woolen mills in and around Worcester, • Mass., are resuming operations, and about seventy per cent, of the old employes are at work. Orders are coming in. but the manufacturers say that buyers insist upon lower prices. So goods must be produced for less money, and reductions in wnges are the rule. TUB em- ployes find that work at lower p»y IS better than idleness, and so tneru nas been no trouble on account of the reduction. Democratic wages must follow democratic cheapness. — Troy THREE YEARS MORE. Three years more or grief anil Grovcr, \\ mill! in F<io.!:!Css thoy were over!
