As the word dram shop is not to be

keepers any more than to any other
class of liquor dealers, th above asser
tion 1 based on no foundation, and
was simply intended to deceive, Tbat
is all we can make of it.

county, there will be no restraint on
tbe sale ot "pure alcohol," by licensed
druggists, as tbe law provide that it
can be sold by this class of business.

The opinion of tbe attorney general
of the btateof Missouri, on th local
option law has been secured, aod it
bears out to a dot, the position taken
by tho IlKMtH i;at, last week, on tlie
question ol the sale of liquors by drug
gist. He says that in counties which
adupt local option, that section 8, of
tbe law will exclusively govern tbe
matter, and this aectiou say plainly
that druggists can sell no intoxicating
liquors but alcohol, even for medicine.

we should Infer that he was talking in
the Interest of tbe saloon, and not In

more serious answer.
Recollect the above Is taken from a
local option paper, edited bv lr. Hol
land, who is doubtless the ablest ai d
best posted temperance advocate iu
the state. He take exactly the same
view of the law as that expressed by
the Democrat last week. i. e. that the
local option law. if adopted, will pre
vent the sale of Intoxicating liquor in
any quantity by tbe drug stores, no
matter it a physician does prescribe It
Only pure aitohol can be sold, and ex
actly how a druggist 1 to nod oat that
It Is "pure" is not explained.
Evidence from such high authority
bould be sufficient to stop the silly
twaddle of men who favor the lo-l
option law, yet in the face of its plain
reading bave the hardihood to aay that
it will not prevent druggist fr m sel
ling whisky on a physician j prescrip
tion. THE silliest piece of nonsense the
f Herds of local option have been guilty
of uttering is the statement they make
that local option will not prevent the
sale of intoxicating liquors by drug
store, on the prescription of physi
clan, f f this was true then it wtml.
not prevent the sale of liquors by a
dealer under the five gallon law, in
fact It would not prevent the issuicg
of a dram stop license, by the county
court on a proper petition under the
Downing law. In order to support this
absurd position they go on and quot
our present statues, which provide how
a druggist shall sell intoxieatiLg
liquor. If they were honest in this
view of tbe case they could go on aud
quote, from our statute bow a man
could procure a dramsbow license, or a
merchant license to sell In quantities
of five gallons or more. The local op
tion law does not contain tbe word
dramshop, and there is no evidence to
tbe bill that this class is referred to
any more than any other class of deal
ers in intoxicating liquor and any
statement that tbe law was a strike
solely at dramshops Is without f ounda
tion in fact. In another place in this
paper will be found the portions of tbe
law that will be operative in case it is
adopted. These section are clear and
easily understood. Section six says no
pebson, mark tbe word, hall stll or
give away. etc. It dont say tbat no
dram ahop keeper, shall do this, but tbe
wording takes In all mankind by say
ing "no person shall sell or give away
any intoxicating liquor or beverage
containing alcohol. That is a plain
as word can make it and when jou
bear a man aay tbat this section refers
only to dram ahop keeper and not
druggist you can form ou;own opin
