C,, April 19.— The Tinman state dispensary liquor law lias been declared unconstitutional by the irapreme court of South Carolina, two justices concurring and one (Tillman- lt«) member of the supreme bench dis- •flcnting from the opinion. This is the law the attempted enforcement of which caused the recent fatal riots in this state. The decision •was rendered in a composite c;ise originating in Darlington and appealed to the supreme court by the state authorities and of several minor cases, likewise appealed by the state. The ground on which the law is Ui^lared unconstitutional is that it crijittcs a monopoly for the state. The decision declares the law unconstitutional in nearly every respect, and holds that it cannot be upheld on any vital point. The profit to the state feature is declared vicious. Gov. Tillman says lie is not talking; that it Ls time only for action. Several district courts of the stile have iu effect given nimllar decisions against,, the law, but Gov. Tillm&Q has never paid any attention to them; but this decision of the supreme court effectually -wipes out tha obnoxious law, and will «nd the suit pending in the United I States supreme court for tho regi.ttra- •' tlon as a trade mark of the dispensary Whisky label.

It touched a wide variety of subjects and at times was brimful of interesting personalities. The Hawaiian policy of tho present administration came in for a good share of attention.

It was held up to ridicule by tho republicans, who intimated that it was a direct reward for his 150,000 contribution to the democratic campaign fund. The democrats, in defending the appointment, tried to counter on the Harrison administration by detailing the history of the alleged S400.000 campaign fund raised by ex-1'ostmaster General Wanamaker. Later in the day Mr. Wise (dem.,Va.) took up the authorship of quorum- counting as a parliamentary Hiiti-fili- bustcring expedient and quoted from the record to show that the u'rst proposition in this line had been offered by J. Randolph Tucker, a Virginia democrat, in 1SSO, when it had been vigorously opposed by Mr. Reed.
