Judge Dc Boll this morning came
out strongly from the bench against
the evil of opium smoking, which he
placed in the class wild the liquor

license, tr come up before him this

The Judge made his statement in
connection with '.he c.se of Chun
Hoon, who was yesterday convicted
of selling opium, wit.iout a license,
and came up before the court for
sentence tFis morning.
V.'.T. Rawlins, who represented
tho defendant, spoke to secure the
minimum penalty. The opium sa'e

change of government and now the
Chinese thought itiat thesnleof opiixn
was permitted as well as the smok
ing and possession of it.
Rawlins ex pressed the hope Vim t
the prosecution would move for a
suspension of stntence, bjl Assistant
County Attorney Cathcart declined
to do so.
He said that he felt very strongly
Tiie defendant stated that he had
nothing to say, except that he was a
inveterate userofopu'm, and became
ill when he bstaiued from using it.
He denied selling the opuicu.
"I think the verdict of the jury is
correct," said Judge D3 Bolt. '"A
person who uses opuim destroys his
manhood, intellect and physical pow
ers. A person addicted to opium for
and length of time places himself in a
position of of living death. He be

is of no use to himself or society, and
for this reason it becomes very Im

"However, tho Court is taking
into consideration the circuin
stances' of the case. I understand

Still the sentence must be just and
proper, and tend to reform you and
at the same time serve as a lesson to
others. It may be a very good thing
that you have no money. It will re
suit in your going to ptis'.on. This

and to get a new start in life as
new and better man. I feel in these
opium matters the seme as 1 do in
liquor matters. If a man merely pays
a fine, ho goes off and gets drunk
again, but if he goes to jail he has
chance to reform."
The Court then sentenced the de
fendant to pay a fine of 175 : nd costs,
