dally confronted by pathetic cases
that wring hia heart. A boy is arrest
ed and his mother goes to Mr. Crock-1
ctt and pleads with him to have her
f: i?on Telcased so that ho will not lose
IP his job. The lad has been sentenced
to thirty days in jail because he be
came inebriated by drinking fruit ex
tract licensed by the federal govem
cnt and virtually mado by the state.
The law punishes the victim severe
ly. The city judge cannot show
mercy. The law provides that the
-victim Bhall'bo sentenced, to pay a fino
of $50 or serve thirty days in jail.
The victim goes to jail, Toses his job,
disgraces his parents and becomes,
marked as a bum while the grocer or
soft drink purveyor who sold him the
deadly liquor, as well the the manu-'
facturer, is permitted to go unwhip
ped of justice, aye permitted and li
censed to grow rich.
The city prosecuting attorney tried!
to stop the traffic at its sources, but1
he found, to his amazement, that the
extracts were being made under gov-,
On April 3, J. S. Powell, n grocer,1
who had been selling orange and other
extracts containing alcohol was ar-i
rested nnd charged with violating the1
law. James W. Shields who was then,
on the police force, had the evidence
but whon the case came up for trial
on May G he was one of the federal
prohibition officers nnd as n result of
information gathered in that capacity
ho testified that .the maker of the ex
tract was licensed by the federal
authorities and manufactured the pro

In astonishment and disgust, Mr.
Crockett asked that the case against
the grocer be disniissod and no consci
entious mnn will find fault with him
for taking this action. Here was n
prosecuting attorney asking for the
conviction of a man who was selling
an alcoholic beverage in which the
federal administration, the state and
the maker had practically formed n
The extract was manufactured by
the Davidson-Cake Tea & Coffee Co.
of Salt Lake. It is marked "Capitol
Brand" and bears on its label n pic

labled "Substitute Orange Extract."
though why the word substitute is
used is not clear.
Th6 samples taken from the grocery
-were submitted to Herman Ilnrms the
state chemist, for analysis. He report
ed that the extract contained 48 per
cent alcohol, or practically as much
as 1iigh grade whiskey. In other
words it is just ns intoxicating ns
whiskey and many will prefer its
flavor to that of whiskey or gin. It
is not n distilled liquor, but simply a
mixture of alcohol and flavoring.

J. S. Powell, the grocer, testified
thnt lie sold extracts just as he did
any other articles of his trade, lie
said that sometimes little boys and
girls came into his store nnri pur-!
chased it for their elders. Since that'
time, we understand he has discontin

Cedar Man May Move to Delta
Mr. Isaac W. Pnrry left yesterday
on the Lund bus on his way to Delta,
where he has an attractive offer on n
farm that he expects to take in. Mr.
Parry has not decided to lenve Cedar
City, nnd still retains various intcrJ
ests here, but he thinks of trying out
! the fnnning opportunities of that sec
tion nnd, of course, should it appear
that ho can do better there than here,
it mny lend to n permnnent move later.
Isaac is n thrifty young man, nnd de-
spite a number of handicaps, has made
good here. He doubtless con make
money in the Delta country, but we
believe when he has weighed the sit
uation from nil angles he will decide
thnt tho Cedar Valley holds just as
good possibilities ns nny other section
of this or nny other stnte.
Ccdnr City nnd Iron county needs
more people, nnd we can ill afford to
i lose men of tho stamp of Issnc Parry,
From Dcltn Mr. Pnrry will go to
Salt Lnkc nnd join Mrs. Pnrry and
I children, who havo been visiting thero
with relatives for some little time.
