Whenever Gov. Buckner refuses to par
don the pistol-packer his crown of glory
will be complete. Stringent laws against
carrying concealed weapons have been on
our statute books for years, but we have yet
to see the first man, with any claims to decency,
who has paid the penalty for his
lawlessness in jail. There have been hundreds
of shooting affrays in tbe State, there
have been murders and killings innumerable,
yet the hand of the law has never fallen
on the pistol carrier. The pistol-packer
should be punished to tbe law's fullest ex
tent, and especially should the imprison
ment clause of the penalty be enforced. The
pistol is not a necessity of every day life,
and the man who habitually carries it has
either the heart of the murderer or he is a
coward. The concealed deadly weapon law
should either be enforced or repealed. Gov.
Buckner can immortalize himself by resolutely
declining to interfere with its enforcement.

Many eminent lawyers have held that
aa prohibition destroyed or seriously injured
distilleries and breweries erected under
sanction of the law, therefore the State
which wa responsible for prohibition, was
bound to make compensation. If this view
was sustained, it would render prohibition
practically impossible in any Slate. The
decision of tbe Supreme Court gives prohibitionists
full swing and is a serious setback
for the Kansas and Iowa brewers and
distillers, who have continued to manufacture
despite prohibitory enactments and
amendments. Chicago Tribune.
