Hero again Is evidenced the In
ability of the Prohibition promoters
to discuss tho facts of Prohibition
on tho basis of true merit.
Tho fact Is that Prohibition in
evory State whero it has been tried
has turned the dispensing of Intox

provided under high llcenso, to tho
drug stores nnd the pocket peddlers.
This is not nn opinion of tho phar

one particular point In the long ar

and towns drug stores whose pro
prietors do not slop lo ask whether
the pure nlrohol nnd the Intoxicants

That Is one of tho good reasons

charged with having stolen somo opium

put up a good fight for his client. Tho
Judge, however, round tho Chinese
guilty and committed him to tho Cir
cuit Court for trial.
It appears that tho necurfed man and
another Celestial roomed nt tho same
