TUK SALOON QUESTION.
For tho present, at least, the Dtstrlct
Commissioners will bo obliged to "let
up'' on somo of the liquor dealers tlioy
have1 been successfully proceeding agnlnst
for violation of the Sunday law. It ap
pears by an examination of the law,
which gives them certain powers, that
tho samo law, to an oxtcnt, protects tho
dealers und to that extent tho Commis
sioners havo their hands tied. The Com
missioners have no moro desiro to violate
tho law In onu particular than they havo
to sco it violated in another, and licenses
will bo Issued to such dealers as como
under the provisions.
Tho Commissioners at tho samo time
will tultu good care that tho dealers who
nro rohnbilitatcd do not cscapo again if
hey violate tho lnw, and w itli tho knowl-
3go born of cxpcrienco.l they will pro
ceed in a manner more productive of
good results. Tho cxistenco of good gov
ernment depends upon the maintenance
of the law, and tho moro respectable (?)
tho violator the greater should bo tho ef
fort to bring him to justice It is com
paratively easy to handle tho crim
inal classes; It is exceedingly difllcult to
control tho source from which tho crim
inal class primarily comes. The Com
missioners are acting with perfect justice
and fairness to all, and If liquor dealers
w ish to continuo in business they must
bo as law-abiding as any other class of
business men. That is law and equity.

How n Demure Contldonco Woman
Tricked n Young Connecticut I.nwyer.
from tlit rrmbltnct Journal.
A day or two ago n talented young law
ycr of Putnam, Conn., was delighted by
finding In his ofllco a richly dressed lady
who announced her dealt o to employ
him professionally. With n beaming
smile tho young Blackstono handed
tho visitor a cushioned armchair and as
sured her that "ho was entirely devoted
to her service." Seating herself the
lady ungloved a small white baud that
literally glistened with diamonds and
applied a Suez scented handkerchief to
her lips, blushed, and casting her eyes
upon tho floor, said:
".My business is very particular U Is
pardon mo sir, but you will not betrav
"Dot ray you? Not for tho world,
madam. You can confldo In mo with tho
nauio reliance as In a priest at tho con
"Tliu fact is I want that is, I have
been unfortunato lu my marriage rela
tions." The eyes of thp lawyer glistened, and,
drawing his chnlr close to tho side of his
fair client, remarked: "I sec I see you
want a divorce. I am Just tho man to
get it for you. 1 am perfectly aufait in
matters of this kind. How long havo
you been married J"
"Nino ycarsl You must have been
very young when you entered that
bliss, I mean wretched state."
"I was a mere child a foolish, inex
perienced girl. A. doting mother placed
mo in tho arms of a iniiu old enough to
bo my father. But ho was rich, nnd tor
two or thrco years I did not know tho
difference. I was as happy 03 though
my husband had been twenty years
younger, but association with other
women opened my eyes, and I bceanio
wretched. I pined for n heart that was
congenial with my own."
"Exactly sol" exclaimed tho lawyer,
rubbing his hands ami twisting his in
cipient moustache, "but your suffering
will soon terminate. I will get you a
divorco, and then "
"Oh, dear mo! and thon but I must
not bo too sanguine. My husband is
very rich, and he will never permit mo
to get a divorce if he can help it."
"Madam, you don't know the law its
majesty its glorious certulnty Its mag
nanimity.; Consider yourself divorced,
nnd rest easy."
"Well, sir; how shall I proceed?"
"Let mo sec. In tho first place, give
me a statement of your grievances."
"That would take a wholo week. You
can imagine what a woman like mo
must suffer with such a husband."
"Yes, yes; cruel nnd barbarous treat
ment; condition intolerable neglect and
all that sort of thing. I will just jot down
a few of tho items. Your namo is "
"Mrs. . You must know my hus

"Yes, ho's rich; but I don't care for
that. I want a divorco."
Tho lawver wrote down a sketch of
tho lady's matrimonial infelicities, and
again assured her that ho would havo no
dliTculty in procuring n divorce, with at
least $10,000 alimony.
"How much nro you goinc to chnrgo
mo for making mo so happy!" asked tho
"Well, I ought to charge you a thou
sand dollars, but, out of consideration
for your sufferings, I will only take a re
tainer of ono hundred dollars, and when
it is accomplished you will Increase it to
five hundred dollars."
"That is ovidcutly reasonable. I havo

Is a check for $200 that my husband

wnnt halt of It to-day; will you get it
cashed for me ?"
"It Is after bank hours, but tho check
is all right. I will givo you 5100 for
your shopping and keep the check."
The lawer hail that day received a re
mittance of $100 from his father. He
handed it over to tho vlsion.of loveliness,
and placing her check in his pocket
book, bowed his client to tho door. Ho
was excessively happy at his good for

clients, sensational divorco cases, and a
huge pile of f 100 bills.
Tho next morning ho wont to tho bank
to get his check cashed, and was thun
derstruck when tho teller informed him
that tho namo of Mr. was forged.
Indignant at tho thought that his fair
client had been guilty of so base u crime
as forging her husband's name, ho hur
ried to tho fpill of Mr. with tho in
tention of exposing tho lady. He was
still moro astonished when Mr. - in
formed him that ho was a widower and
had not been blessed with a wlfo for
more than ten years.

tho Commission Will mi 1. oncer bo
CnicAoo, Dec. 12. Tho largo assem
bly room of the Central Tralllc Associa
tion, In tho ItooUery building, was liter
ally packed with railroad officials yes
terday afternoon at tho hour appointed
for tho meeting with J ml go Coolev nnd
Colonel Morrison, of the Interstate Com
mcrco Commission. Thcro wero pres
idents, vlco-prcsldents, managers, gon
end passenger nnd freight agents, repre
senting not only all tho roads entering
Chicago, but many outsidollucs.
Tho Texas Association, in tho Bosslon
at tho Urand l'acluc Hotel, adjourned,
that its members might hear tho wholo
somo advice, which no ono doubted
would bo freely given by tho vcnernblo
chairman of tho commission. It wus
evident, when Judge Cooloy entered tho
room, that ho was "loaded for bear,"
and tliero was n feeling prevalent that ho
would bring down tho game.
When ho took tho iloor ho kopt it for
about an hour, and it Is safe to say that
novcr slnco tho Interstate Commerco
Commission began Us existenco havo tho
railroads had tho law laid down to thorn
in such forcible terms. Ho confined him
solf to tho passcngar rato situation nnd
addressed his remarks especially to the
roads west and northwest of Chicago,
condemning tho practice of somo of the
geneiul passenger agents In placing
blocks of tickets in tho hands of ticket
brokers to bo sold nt rates below thoso
charged over their own counters.
This he said was n discrimination
against that portion of tho public which
procured its tlckots from tho regular
ngonts of tho roads in question ana was
n clear vlolatton of tho Interstate law.
It was a pernicious practice; it boncfltcd
nobody in tho long run; it kept rates In a
demoralized condition and brought on
wars which wero always disastrous to
tho roads engaged In them. Tho Inter
state Commission, he said, had hitherto
dealt leniently with tho railroads, giving
thorn time to adapt their affairs to tlio re
quirements of tho law, but tho time had
como when heroic measures must bo
taken, if necessary, to atop tho abuses
which arise from tho encouragement
given to scalpers by tho passeugor agents
Evidenco was not wnntlng that such
abuses had been carried to excess in Chi
cago and clsowhcre. Tho markets wero
flooded with cheap tickets to various
points nnd tho traveler who patronized
tho broker's ofllco instead of purchasing
his ticket from tho authorized agent of
a railroad company saved money. This
was contrary to law, and it must bo
stopped. Tho railroads wero advised to
mako nono but opon rates, nnd tlioy
were civen to understand tuat u tuey re
fused to heed this advico tho law would
bo btrictly onforcod wherovor a violation
Tho Judge explained tho construction
to bo placed upon tho provision of the
law in regard to discrimination, and in
timated that In futuro no excuso would
bo accoptcd for an infringement of its
Tho remarks of Judgo Cooloy wcro
listened to with marked nttention.
Immediately after tho adjournment of
tho meeting tho general pagsqngcr agents
of tho Western and Northwestern lines
convoncd in tho samo room, with John
Is7. Abbott in tho chair. Tho Burlington
road was tho only road not represented.
It was agreed that with tho consent of
tho absent road ten days' notice would
bo given to-davof the restoration of rates
