Further on In the hearings, page

, for the exploitation f the Philip
pine.! veiy dourly lu tlio following
"My nrcumenl In favor of Inlro
duclng sugar nml tobacco Into tho

was based on tho hope that It would

on this, that there comes oxer tho

Mr. Taft's urgument Hint "tho ntt

During recent dlvorco proccedlngH
In, tho Kast between a couplo named
Gould, known as millionaire nnd
members of the Inner clrclo of so
ciety, tho question arose In court,
creating a now and very Interesting
discussion, ns to
What Is ii lady's limit as n wlnc
drlnkcr? Tho wlno referred to was. of
course, champagne, no other brand
being mentioned nnd tho possibility
that n lady of such standing in so
ciety could tickle her palate with"
anything but Kxtra Dry never for n.
moment being entertained. Tho
mere thought of such a thing would
huvo been degrading.
Tho llrst witness, who was asked
tho all-lmporlaut question, hesitated
beforo making Ills reply and Intimat
ed n doubt ns to his ability to gtvo
nn expert opinion. It may bo Hut
Individual Instances wero running
through his mind, for thcro are, of
courbe, ladles nml ladles, and tho
rapacity of the one may not he equal
to tho limit of tho other. Finally,
however, this witness swore that one
pint boftlc was safe, and that a lady
could Imblbo that at one sitting
without Injury to herself or tho fcol
lngs of her escort or associates In
the same piano of society.
On tho following day, howovcr,
another witness, nnd a moro posltlvo
one, snld that Mrs. Gould never
drank moro than one cocktail, n slu
glo pint of wine, and two cordials nt
dinner. Ho had never seen tho lady
under tho Influence of liquor. Con
sidering tho number of courses and
the length of tlmo over which oven
an ordinary homo dinner among so
ciety peoplo is drawn out, mi thoy
say, the cocktail, which Is nnto-prnn-dial,
tho ono-plnt bottle, and tho two
cordials do not seem excessive, there
having naturally been quite a lapso
of tlmo since luncheon, and many
hours to pass before a supper nt
Sherry's or Dclomnlco's.
Possibly further expert testimony
offered In tho enso will como to"hand
later, nnd tho opinion which now
appenrs to be. satisfactorily settled
that a pint bnttlo for luncheon, a
cocktail, n pint bottle, and a couplo
of rordlula nt dinner Is within n
lady's cnpnclty may be upset. In
tho meantlmo It should fairly bo ac
cepted by society.
C08T OF LIVINQ FOR
A WORKER'S FAMILY,
"So ou wont to know Hip cost of
