A Story of John A. Logan.
.It used to be told of Gen. Logan,
who was a member of congress at the

the case. They have been found
guilty and should pay the penalty.

The Unsettled Liquor Question. 1]
If the News and Courier and the bi
lawyers who agree with it are right au
in their view of the law, there is not

be legal loop-holes, it is well known
what the result will be. Of one
