r.tferrii by Mr. Db'koy, ""id thnt ho
lid not believe it was the cowardice
if the people that was responsible
for the violation of lnw, but the in
liuntiou on the part of the good
people to shift the responsibility to

nid that be believed the good peo
ple of Stanford wanted to assure th0
officii1 that they will coVoperato
with them, nnd is satisfied a better
lny for Stanford is coming.
Rex. P. L. Bruce, of the Presby

ns ngninst nil forms of lawlessness
un well as the violation of the liquor

in-oued in the temperance fight,
nnd should thus stand ready to op
