TO REINSTATE CANTEEN.
Since Its Abolishment Saloons Have
Flourished at Every Post and Drunk
enness Has Increased.
The war department in Washing
ton is in constant receipt of data
concerning the canteen question and
the effect of its abolition upon the
army. Apropos of this a statement
is made at the war department that
only such information as has been
contained in the reports of army of
fiers upon the subject has been
given to the public, and it is
denied that any effort has been
made to influence public opinion on
It is said at the department that
the recommendations of the adju
tant general in his annual report
were based upon the information
contained in these reports. It iF
pointed out that the existence of
something like 1,400 saloons in the
vicinity of the army posts is shown
by the reports received at the de
partment; 250 to 300 of which are
said to have opened since the closing
of the canteen. This further state
menL is made at the department:
"The majority of posts have report
ed that drunkenness and court-mar
tials for drunkenness have increased;
that desertion and absence without
leave has increased; that the effect
of the closing of the canteen upon
the morality, discipline and healtb
of the troops has been bad, and,
while many post commanders are,
in consequence of frequent changes
of garrison and from the absence of
correct data upon which to base
comparisons, unable to report as tc
the degree of detriment created by
the closing of the canteed, it can be
stated as an absolute fact that in nc
single case has a post commande'
expressed au opinion that the effect
of the abolition of the sale of Dee'
in the army has resulted in improved
With pference to the reports from
the Philippines a statement has beer
made epitomizing the annual report
of.Brig. G*en. Sanger, inspector gen
oral of the division of the -Philip
pines; After narrating the evil of
feats upon the human system of the
native liquors the statement con.
"To remedy these conditions the
post exchange, at which light bee,
was- sold, was ezisroising a wholesome4
infinence, and Gen. Sanger believeE
that the emhange should be again
made a possibility by removing all
restrictions on the sale of beer and
"To the fear, so often expressed
by the opponents of the canteen sys.
tom, that the sale of beer would
initiate, or induce habits of intem
perance,' Gen. Sanger shows, from~
a careful census of the 342 com
panies of troops in the Philip'
pine hIands, that in 60 companies
every enlisted man used vinous,
malt or spiritous liquors at date of
enlistment; in 130 companies, be
tween 90 and 100Oper cent; in 58
companies, between 80 and 90 per
cent; in 26 companies, between 70
ane 50 per cent and 20 companies
between 60 and 70 per- cent. Un
* fortunately quite a number of met
habitually drmk to excess, -and s
this number will probably increase
if the men are obliged, as now, tc
resort to native liquors in order tc
satisfy- what to many of them is t
perfectly natural craving, the resul'
will be most deplorable. Gerr San
ger concludes with the remark that
'it is hardly probable, in view of thiu
information, that congress ,shal]
continue the prohibition againas
the canteen. when it is evident that
the sale of beer would be a precan
tion against the pernicious habiti
above stated and their fatal and dis
astrous results.' "

MATRON AND HER MONUMENTS.
In 20 Years Mrs. Burns Raised 12 Chil- ThE
dren, Fed Cotton Gin, Drove Wagon
and Sewed for a County.
[Special to The State.]
Laurens, Nov. 20.-For individual ke
and diversified enterprise, pluck and r
frugality Mrs Ellen Burns, wife of th
Mr. Albert Barns, who resides seven of
miles north of this city, presents a
notable illustration of what a woman
thus endowed can do. She was Miss
McAteer of this county and married ga
Mr. Burns 20 odd years ago. They by
started out with practically nothing, ci
save energy and economy. The close
application of which has brought its Rs
sure rewards. Today Mrs. Burns is ve
the froud mother of 12 children, yet 1 ke
she doesn't hesitate to go to the gin at
house and feed the gin all day or ed
hook up a team and come to town. Cc
They own a splendid farm, run a ri
public saw mill and ginnery, the de
tails of which she is perfectly fami- ru
liar with every day in the year. Be
sides this she employs no servants cif
in the house, does all the sewing for of
the family and when work runs low th
she not infrequently goes out to the of
neighbors for sewing. She does
more; she even invades this town, so
liciting mantna making. Of course
the work is secured, which she de
livers on time, usually making a un
couple of trips a week to this vicinity. nil
The writer has heard her express the of
opinion that she could make a dollar we
go as far as anybody. She knows in
the value of time and money. She thi
can purchase a bill of groceries as co
easily as that of a bonnet or pair of we
gloves. She is indeed a helpmeet sc
and a betterbalf. They don't owe a tic
dollar, set the children off to house -
keeping as they get married, are
preparing to build a new residence
and have some cash which will prob
ably be invested in cotton mill stock
as Mrs. Burns thinks the mill busi
ness the leading inaustry now.
TRAFJIC IN GIRLS.
A Scheme to Purchase Foreigners and
Ship Them to the Interior. Id
New York, Nov. 21.-Detectives p
in this city are today trying to find
the New York branch of the syndi- the
cate which, according to Philadel
phia disclosures is operating for the
purpose of procuring girls abroad
to* send to the chief cities of this It
cowitry for immoral purposes. The
German ambassador at Washington, y
through the German consul at Wash
ington, furnished the Philadelphia yo
police with the information which
led to the investigation, and last sae
night a score of houses were
raided and positive evidence ob
tained. As a rule small price~
re paid for the girls. TheL
agents come to New York, meet the
victims when they land; then send
them over the country. The New -
York detectives said today that the
Philadelphia raids recalled the fa
mous red light dist rict investigation Su
in this city. The rAported condi
tions of Baltimore are as bad as
New York and Philadelphia.
