The marriage of Miss Marga
ret Minor of Terrebonne parish
and Mr. Charles Krumbhaar was
celebrated Wednesday evening
in New Orleans at the home of
Miss Minor's aunt, Miss Kate
Minor, in Napoleon avenue. The
wedding although very quiet was
of much social interest, uniting
as it did two of the most promi
nent families in the state. Only
the relatives of the bride and
bridegroom and the most inti
mate friends of both were among
the wedding guests. The cere
mony was performed by the Rev.
Gardner L. Tucker of Houma,
La., at 6 o'clock in the evening.
Mr. Penn Krumbhaar was his
brother's best man and Miss
Mary Minor, the bride's sister,
was her maid of honor. The
young couple left immediately
after the informal reception
which followed the ceremony for
San Francisco, whence they will
sail for Hawaii. They will reside
for the next two years in Hama

EDITED BY WOMAN'S ANTI-SALOON LEAGUE
Business Joining Religion.
The Fifth Avenue National
Bank, New York City, has issued
the following rules for its clerks:
You must not drink any intoxi
cants with meals in public res
You must not enter any saloon.
You must not enter any gamb
You must not enter any pool
You must not visit any race
You must not enter any buck
You must not speculate.
You must not attend prize
You must not have vicious
You must not frequent Broad
way resorts or become conspicu
ous where the great white lights
This question comes, however:
If a young man should not enter
any saloon, gambling house, pool
room, race track, bucket shop,
etc., why should there be such
institutions at all? If they are
good things, why should not
young men enter them? If they
are bad things, why should they
be allowed to exist? Will any
body answer? It is significant,
however, that business is joining
hands with religion in opposing
all such institutions.
"Drunk and Disorderly." This
is the charge. But why drunk?
Well, drunk simply because for a
consideration the city licenses
men to run places to make peo
ple drunk. But we confess it
seems to us exceedingly incon
sistent that the city should l1
dirunk ana thienu.arrest the man
for getting drunk. Either the
city has no right to license insti
tutions to make men drunk or it
is not right to arrest the patrons
of that institution as a result of
the natural and well-known con
sequences of running the insti
tution. We enter a plea for
these "drunk and disorderly"
men. Either let them go free or
let the city cease to be a partner
to their becoming "drunk and
The Experience of Avoyelles.
Our secretary is in receipt of
a letter from J. W. Joffrion of
Marksville, La., district attorney
of Avoyelles parish, giving his
opinion of prohibition in that
parish. The letter reads:
Yours of the 5th inst. duly
received. I note that you are in
the midst of a fight for prohibi
tion. Avoyelles Parish voted
prohibition in the year 1900, and
Ito this date I don't think that it
has cause to regret its step. Af
ter experiencing both license and
prohibition, the last vote taken
by the parish on the question
evidenced the popularity of pro
hibition in Avoyelles. This vote
was taken in 1906, after six years
trial of prohibition, and the re
sult of the election was approxi
mately nine votes for prohibition
to one for license.
In my capacity as District At
torney I have had the opportuni- 1
ty to see the full effects of liquor 1
and the good results of prohibi- I
tion. Under the prohibition re
gime I have found a decided de
crease in the commission of
crime. I went into office just as
prohibition began. I remember (
'the first five felony cases which I i
had. It was just on the heels of i
the sale of liquor in the parish.
Four of the five I traced directly
There is a great deal which I
could say in favor of the estab
lishment of prohibition, but I do
not desire to take up your time
with lengthy arguments or sta
tistics in its favor. I am satis
fied that if your people vote pro
hibition, like the people of the
parish of Avoyelles, they will be
so well pleased with it that they
will not vote it out and qote liquor
in any more.
Very truly yours,
J. W. JOFFRION.
