Ik.XH'o CITY, May 24 Authori
ties have under cousidnrat ion tlie plac
ing of a alsblute embargo upon the
introduction and sale of pulque in the
capital city. One reason fur Oiis is the
s.alutary effect upun the classes which
consume large quantities of the liquor,
and .the other is because the concerns
handling it have uniformly committed
g rims fraud cgaiiist the government
and have escaped paying more than a
fraction of the just Charges levied
by Ian upon the Importation of the
beverage into the citv. The amount
paid has been inxignifiennt. while the
quantity of pulque introduced and sold
has been enormous.
The Secretary of Hacienda has under
consideration the inauguration of an
establishment for the manufacture of
sugar from the juice of the magiiev
plant, which at present is converted
jnto pulque. This would prove benefi
ciil In several direction it would re
luce intoxication, it would "aid in al
leviatiug the shortage of sugar in c-r
taiu oortiourt of the Republic, und it
would give employment to a large force
of operatives, The entire matter is
being carefully studied bv the pic
iitent, with the prosneut that in a short
t'nie a decree, lunv tie promulgated in
tirely fortiiddi 'iu the sale of pulque i i
