    "The funeral services were conducted by Elder J. T. Satterwhitre at

    THE DISPENSARY
    ----------------------------
    The mayor and city council have organized and established a dispensary for Roanoke,
    under the law recently enacted by the [Alabama] legislature. The bars all closed
    December 31st -- C S HANNERS having sold out and closed some days before. On January 1st
    representatives of the municipality began taking stock with J M BELCHER and T L BELCHSR [sic],
    having bought out their stocks of whiskey.

    J M BELCHER has been selected as dispenser, and the business will be conducted at his
    old stand. He will be paid a salary of $1000 and will be allowed $100 to hire rough help.
    As soon as the necessary papers have been secured the dispensary will open for business --
    probably in a very few days.

    [From The Randolph Leader (Roanoke, Randolph County, Alabama), 2 Jan 1901, p.3]

    --------------------------------

    DISPENSARY INCOME
    --------------------------------
    Our readers will probably be surprised to learn what a large figure represents the actual
    income of the Roanoke Dispensary for the first month of its existence, which was really
    not a complete month.

    It began business January 4, 1901, and at the close of the last day, Jan 31, the total
    receipts, as furnished The Leader by Mr. BELCHER, the dispenser, footed up $2,822.25.
    This is an average of almost $118 for each business day since the dispensary began
    operation. With this rate as a criterion sales for the entire year would amount to about
    $33,865. You can make your own figures and draw your own conclusions as to the
    beauties of the dispensary and as to the amount of whiskey going down the throats of
    fathers and sons in this section of the country.

    FROM WEHADKEE
    --------------------------------
    Feb 11.--
    We notice in The Leader of last week the monthly report of the Roanoke dispensary. Does
    that report indicate a remedial decrease in drinking, as claimed for the dispensary? We
    think not; yet this dispensary example is what many of our people have urged as a
    compromise, and substitute for barroom drinking, and many of our brethren have claimed
    the dispensary to be a worthy and acceptable business for christian [sic] men to enter into.
    Will such brethren explain the difference in being a bar tender for a saloon and a bar tender
    for the state? We see no difference. The advocacy of the dispensary in the hands of good
    men seems to us like a preacher going around with packs of cards in; Principal=Jefferson M. Belcher2

    One disclaimer – the photos were labled by my paternal grandmother in the 1980’s. Once a year, I lose sleep that he might actually be another grandfather East. But I have decided to trust she was right. Where the doubt comes in is that William B Belcher was described in the past as having lost a leg in the civil war – but in my research, I found that it was another grandfather. If my dad was wrong about that….
