The action of Judge John R.
Bond in sending G. W. Essary,
deputy United States revenue col
lector, to jail for refusing to testi
fy as to whether or not W. A.
Weatherford had government li
cense to sell liquor, has led the
federal authorities to investigate
the matter and caused the promul
gation of . an important ruling
which will perhaps prove a satis
factory solution of the question.
While the time of It is collector or
his deputy must not be taken up
by attendance on criminal courts
the department points out the
remedy by stating that any State
representative or any citizen may
examine the books aud records of
the internal revenue agent's office
where the fact sought to be proved
can be obtained.
This makes it an easy matter to
find out who have government li
cense, the possession of which, un
der the laws of Tennessee, is pri
ma facia evidence of a violation of
the provisions of the Adams law.
Commenting on this ruling the
Memphis Scimitar says:
"Recently at Paris, Tenn., this
very problem was raised. Judge
Bond jailed a United States reve
nue officer for refusing to answer
a question which sought to prove
a certain defendant in State pro
ceedings had violated the Adams
law. The State's attorney wished
to show the guilt of the defendant
by proving he had bought and
paid for a federal license. The
revenue man held his tongue, be
lieving he was right in so doing.
The court ruled otherwise and the
witness was remanded to the lock
up. Later his honor, after an ar
gument over the long distance tel
ephone (the only one on record,
by the way) made by District At
torney Randolph, released the jail
"The department of justice sub
sequently saw the advisability of
a strict ruling, hence the orre made
as explained above.
"The publication of the above
order of things in this particular
should and doubtless will prove of
paramount interest throughout
Tennessee and bordering States
where there are may so called dry
counties in which the blind tiger
appears to be an evil."

FINEST and BEST SPECTACLES on hand. It does not matter
how weak, near-sighted, or far-sighted your eyes are, he surely can
and will suit you so as to enable you to see good and bright, and give
satisfaction and delight, and at a very reasonable price for first-class
work. Remember the eyesight is priceless, and the fitting of Lenses
depends upon the skill of the Eye Specialist, the quality of the Len
ses and the adjustment of the frames to the face. Eye strain pro
duces more Headache than all other causes combined, but when the
eyes are properly fitted it is a sure cure for such headaches. There
is no other permanent remedy for it. School children are often ren
dered dull and backward, not from lack of natural intelligence, but
because they have bad eyes, which make a close application to study
so painful as to be intolerable. Parents and school teachers should
not neglect this important matter, as it might make a bright, intelli
gent child of an otherwise stupid ono. Remember this Great Eye
Remedy has cured thousands of people in this State, after paying out
hundreds of dollars to doctors for other eye remedies, without gain
ing any benefit whatever. A free sample will convince you that you
can be cured. Consultation and Examination Free to All. He can
