and. with the assistance of his seconds,

Bntiah policy holders. They are

GUTTS DISMISSES CASE
AGAINST SALOON MAN
Judge Curts this morning dismissed
the case against A. S. Hole, charged
with keeping his saloon, the California
wine room, open on Sunday. The
complaint was filed Tuesday by Rev.
L. R. Kufus and charged Holt with
violating ordinance 124, which was
supposed to make it a misdemeanor to
keep a saloon open on the Sabbath.
A demurer was filed to the complaint
oy the attorney for the defense, Ira
Thomas, which contended that the
orr'inance was it)valid and of no effeot
as far as the criminal portion of it was
concerned, which made Suunay cpen
iug unlawful. It jwai further con
tended that even were this not true
the complaint itself was lacking in
tacts and did not state the cause of
action or ciime. The demurer was
slustained by Judge Cutts who did
net announcs which theory he sustain
ed it.
As toe matter now stands it rmy
bo assumed that there is no valid or
dinanoe of this city against keeping
saloons or any other placa of business
open on Sunday.
Rev. Kufus states that the case will
by no means be dropped and if it is
found, after a thorough investigation
of the city laws, to be impossible to
secure a conviction, the matter will be
taken up under the state laws which
are very plain on the subject.
It is probable that complaints will be
sworn out against the other five
saloons which Mr. Kufus found open
on Sunday, December 17.

"AS ONE DIETH, SO
DIETH THE OTHER"
Dr Osier Declares That Man has no
Preeminence Over the Beasts
and Dies as he Lived. With no
Thought of a Future Life.
BALTIMORE, Md., Dec. 20.—Dr.
William Ofler, the mau who wants the
aped hustled to the grave? ard, is out
with a leally important and interest
ing declaration. In his latest book
published today (lie says: "Death
bed visions believed in oy thousands
and of which there are scores of sup
nosed authentic records, are plain non
sense."
Morover he supports this declara
tion by hundreds of deathed observa
tions which he believes, pr;>ve that
such reported visions are absolutely un
true. In all cases there was
suffering, fear and other emotions,
but no thought of the future.
"As a rule a man dies os he
lived, uninfluenced pracically by the
thought of future lite. I have care
ful records of f>oi> ieaths studed part
icularly to view the modes of death
and sensations of dying. Ninety I
suffered bodily pain, distress of some
sort or other; eleven showed mental
apprehension; two positive terror;
one expressed spiritual exhaltation;
one bitter remorse. The great ma
jority cave noisign one way nor the
other. Like births their deaths were
sleep and forgetting. In this matter
man has no preeminence over beast.
"As one dieth, so dieth the other.' "
