TilE "NEWS" AGAIN. .
The case- of murder, and other ,
evil anm painful results of' whiskey p
drinking in the city of Greenville, m
.qhould be made the subjects of the 01
profoundest consideration for all'a
the inhabitants of our neighboring I,
city. When life itself is jeopard- v
ized by the ill use of intoxicating sl
drinks, then all thoughtful and sen- i8
sible people should at once hasten a
to adopt such measures as will p
prohibit murdcr, as well as the n
perpetration of such acts as are ti
well calculated to horrify the sen- el
sitive minds of sober people. e
Thice weeks ago, just after lte tI
recent murder in GrI'Ceuiville, the 'i
foireman of the MEvssian wrote N
an article supposing whiskey to be d
the cause of the murder. The I
"Daily News" took issue with the a
MESSNGFRnald claimed that vhis- .
key was not the cause of it, al leg- ed
ing that the parties vere sober. A
As yet. however, the 'News' has
not claimed that the row originla
