THE REPUBLIC: SUNDAY. JUNE 22. 1902.
LAW ENFORCEMENT LEAGUE READY
TO BEGIN FIGHT ON WINEROOMS.
Becret-Service Men Employed b.v the Organization Have Already Re
ported Six .Cases Officers of League State That Money for Cam
paign lias Already Been Raised Executive Committee of
Eleven D. D. Walker, Sr., Made President Members-
The Iv Enforcement League, after the
election of D. D. Walker, Sr., as president,
announces that it is now in shape to begin
an active campaign against winerooms,
gambling, and the sale of liquor to minors.
Tho election of Mr. Walker as president
completes the roster of officers. The others
as announced in The Republic recently are:
The Reverend James T. Coffey, first vice,
president; the Reverend Carroll M. Davis,
second vice president; George H. Williams,
secretary; Isaac H. Orr, treasurer.
The league, which Is now thoroughly or
ganized, has been In progress of formation
for fully two months. It b the outgrowth
and oomplement of tho Anti-Wineroom
Crusade. The leaders in the Anti-Wineroom
Crusade always fell that the organi
sation should be one headed by representa
tive business men of the city and worked,
steadily with that end In view.
On May IS the first organized meeting
was held at the Y. M. C A Hall by an or
ganization known as the Committee o One
Hundred. At this meeting Calvin M.
Woodward was elected chairman, Hugh
McKlttrick secretary, but on account -or
business Interests Mr. McKlttrick declined
the office, and George H. Williams was
chosen to fill the place.
At the meeting of May IS a committee of
flva was appointed to draft a constitution
and nominate officers. On the 25th of May
ths committee of live reported a constitu
tion, which was unanimously adopted, and
J officers were nominated. At this time Mr.
- Ellas Michael was prominently mentioned
for president of the organization, but de
clined tha honor on account of other inter
ests which required all his time. ,,,.
Article 2 of the constitution, which de
clares that the object of the league shall
be the enforcement of the laws pertaining
to saloons, and especially those provisions
relating to winerooms, gambling and the
sale of Uquor to minors, will at present re
quire the entire attention and resources of
the league. Later on it is proposed to be
gin an active warfare en all the evils aris
ing out of the liquor traffic
fi. B. Barclay, superintendent of the
league, when seen at his office stated that
the movement had no connection with the
Anti-Saloon League, and no fight on the
saloon aa a saloon Is contemplated. The
league will at first confine Its efforts to
"winerooms, gambling and the sale of liquor
to minors. From this as the foundation
head we intend to work up to all the other
"vlla which aro the outgrowth of these, but
at present we shall destroy the root, and
thus destroy the growth." This was the
sentiment expressed by an officer high in
the councils of the league when asked for
an expression of opinion.
The Reverend Carroll M. Davis, the sec
ond vice president, declared that the move
ment ws thoroughly organized and ready
for a long and bitter struggle. If necessary.
The Executive Committee of Eleven, com
posed of D. D. Walker, the Reverend J.
T. CoflEe. George IL Williams. Isaac H.
Orr, the Reverend Carroll M. Davis, James
Xi Blair. A. W. Benedict. Profossor Calvin
M. Woodward, W. J. Klnsella. John F.
Shepley and George B. Lelghton. la the
working body of the league, and It is pro-
Eed by these gentlemen to get after the
breakers with an earnestness and vigor
t will secure results.
The movement Is to be carried on In a
methodical way. A secret-service force is
organized, the purpose of which shall be to
get evidence against those who are violating
the law. When the evidence is secured it
will be turned over to the head of tha de
partment and sifted thoroughly. No case
that Is not thought strong enough for con
viction shaU be brought to the notice of the
authorities. Afcr ths chief of the secret-
service branch of the league has passed on
the evi'leneo submitted to him, such cases
as are thought good will le turned over to
the legal department, which will bring them
to the notice ot the Prosecuting Attorney
In the shape of information.
The men in the secret service are already
at work and have reported six cases to
their chief. Thes have been turned over
to the legal department for consideration,
and will thortly be referred to Prosecuting
In a few days the league proposes to send
a letter to the business men of St. Louis
asking their aid and support. After th.s Is
done namnhlets and dodcers will be sent
j broadcast throughout the city, and in the
J rear future wil! be handed out at all
the churches in the city, setting forth the
purpose of the league.
Later on. if it Decomes necessary, all
the churches, in the city will be asked to
lend support and devote an entire Sunday
to the cause.
It is claimed by the officers of the league
that they have all the money required for
the wcrk and they propose to wage a re
lentless battle until they accomplish the
purposes for which tho league was organized.

BALLOT-BOXES AT PRIMARIES.
. . Cxamlssloner Aloe Tells How the
I .'Boxes Were GiTen to the Judges.
' To tb Editor of The Republlo.
8U Louis, June ZL I notice In your
Moo ef to-day, referring; to the pros-
pectiva contests before the Republican
State Convention, the following state
ment: "It is claimed by the opponents
of the Kerens faction that tho ballot boxes
were all delivered to the Judges and clerks
of tha Kerens faction. Tne name of Louis
I'. Aloe will figure in the contests, as it was
claimed he was responsible for this favorit
ism." The law upon the subject Is as follows:
"Section IS. Opening of polls, and voting
at official primary elections: Subdivision 1
Tho Election Commissioners in cities to
which this act is applicable shall within
twenty-four hours prior to the tlmo fixed
for opening the polls at an official primary
election deliver to one of tho judges ap
pointed and qualified as required in this act
In each primary district two of the ballot
boxes used at general State elections, to
gether with the keys to said boxes. Such
ballot boxes shall be securely locked, and
one ot them shall contain the official bal
lots for such primary district, as required
j In section 11 of this act, and said ballot
boxes shall not be opened until, the hour of
t 1 o'clock p. m. on the day of such official
I Therefore you wil see that if the action
I which 1 am charged with taking was ac
tually truo it would yet have been entlrely
-lawful and proper for me to have deliv
ered the said boxes, keys, etc, to any ono
duly appointed qualified judge of election.
But, as a matter of fact, the action which
was taken In the distribution of these ballot-boxes
is Just tho contrary to what you
state. Anticipating that there would be
charges of this kind in the event the boxes
were delivered at the homes of the judges
tho day previous to the primary (as was
done in all wards In which no contests oc
curred). I therefore directed that all boxes,
keys, books, eta, for such wards In which
contests did occur should be delivered
on the "day of the primary" at the "poll
ing riices," between the hours of 1130 a.
m. er.d 1 p. m.". and this course was fol
lowed strictly, without exception. In the
following wards: The Fourth. Seventh.
Tenth. Twelfth. Fifteenth. Tenty-second
and Twenty-fifth. In all other wards they
had been delivered the day previous, direct
ly to the homes of the Judges.
You will, therefore, see how absurd Is
this charge of favoritism In this respect. In
the discharge of my official duties as mem
ber of the Board of Election Commissioner
I Bhall not, and will not. stultify myself for
any person, regardless of how good a friend
he may be. Neither will I jeopardize my
reputation as a fair and honest man. I
wear no roan's collar other than my own.
and whenever the time comes that 1 am
any man's man. I shall make my perma
nent exit from the political field. Yours
mostrespectfully, LOUIS P. ALOE.,

HERALD AND THE ST. LOfIS REPUBLIC
Purls. June 21. (Copyright. I2.) The af
fectation of society women not to wear
smart dresses at tho Grand Prix was not
persisted In this year. There were a great
number ot costumes In light cloth. Chalk
color was very much In favor. Many were
trimmed with passementerie de sole. Even
ing dresses aro In coarse cloth. Including
the new "islande" cloth.
I noticed some short skirts, but also no
ticed soma handsome mantles In poplin with
open-work embroidery. These mantles In
many instances havs a long pelerine. A
very pretty one of this kind was in pink
cloth, embroidered in white, with an echarte
in pompadour taffetas falling in front
There were also many mantles and dress's
pleated In "Soleil" fashion. This style,
which was very fashionable some years
ago, is again in vogue.
I further noticed a number of women
wearing large Louis XVI capelln hats,
their hair belnc arranged very low, with
tv.o curls falling on the neck.
Another original hat was a large eapellne
d'ltallc. rowned with white feathers, which
after going round the crown, encircle the
neck and then fall to the waiet.
Many more wore large hats, with long
veils In tulle moussellne or lace, falltng be
hind half way lo the waist.
Miles. Sorel and Jeanne Granlcr were In
terviewed on the subject of the present
fashion. Mile. Sorcl complains that women
dress too little. She thinks cycling and
automobiles have Riven a taste for utility
rather than elegance. She delights in tho
Eighteenth Century style, and detests tho
skin-tight costumes of U-day. Paquln is
her one dressmaker.
Mile. Granier revels hi the modern fash
Ion. She thinks It surpasses all other
periods. She also employs Paquln. because
his dreams ult her roles as well as the
wejrer. She has a perfect craze for pear.s. i
American women who used to be received i
with open arms by Paris dressmakers now !
ses their orders coolly turned down. This I?
owing to orders for the English coronation
celebrations. Paris houses nave no less than
forty dresses to make bv June 26. Lon
don modistes are so busy that many orders
have been placed here Members ot the
French aristocracy wanting a dress for the
immediate future can get nothing.
Anv one paying a visit to the dress
makers in the Rue de la Palx to obtuin
information regarding dresses for the cor
onation is likely, to put it mildly, to be
coldly received. A representative of a lead
ing London illustrated journal, who visited
one of the foremost couturieres. was almost
expelled by force.
Dressmakers are mounting guard night
and day over their creations. Innumerable
fashion journals have offered money for
