I nave seen during the last year men and women too make splendid breaks for liberty, and eren while I watched their frantic flight and cheer them on their way, I have seen the majestic lion of the law leap from his marble lair In the capitol and fell them by a blow, and every bill and vale re-echoing his savage roar, that told the leaser beast of prey that king would hunt that day. 1 have heard the saloon jackals come yelp ing along all the way to shred the fallen bodies aye, souls, too, and gagged by. the quivering hearts of women, fly back in awful stealth to their screened coves to mouth them there in cat like lust of death and blood, and today walling through all these aisles and arches. I can hear cries of minor treble calling, "Save my father! save my husband! save my child!" Hear It, oh friend; is It not the will of your father that one of those little ones should perish. Oh, hear It and help, for the love of numand kind, to grasp the reason why the slaughter of the weak and . Innocent goes on unchecked and why ; God's men stand by holding the gov emments of the murderers; drunken Bess la sin not only one of the worst I would as soon stagger to the gate of heaven drunk and In rags as a so ber, clean, dainty hypocrite. I would as wOIlngly roll Into judgment limp . with alcohol as a calm, clean accom plice of the saloon. I would go as re ally maudlin and gibbering to my sentence as with the sham of gold, of license. In may hand, or in my pocket a price of a tenement let to shame all these are sins and sinneis seed at the last diagnosis, not alve, but salvation. Current legislation shows the same determination, to the small view, and so we have the sa loons and very slightlv. too.

Of course one supposes it was on account of the oil well, but we have been told by good authority that the saloons were all wide open all day. Why la this. VTas It by permission from the officer or did the salon men asiume the reaponslBlllty of running wide open floors on the Sabbath when the law says they must close.

That inventories are finally over, books closed and 1900 a thing of the past, Is apparent in the resumption of buying, and especially in the char acter of demand. Orders cover the va rious grades dealt In by respective parties and the quantities show a f ur oishing up of stocks. There is a dia unut spirit of conservatism, which, nowever, works no harm, as with ev ery one buying In greater or lesser degree, the total assumes proportions uoth sustaining and stimulating. The very fact of the demand of the day Deing limited is the warrant for en couragement and expectation that per force additional Installments must be called for . on the morrow. Under the neavy drafts of the past two weeks, stocks of domestic at this point are depleted and the question of re-supply the next thing in order. Prices have recently been pegged up 1-3 toj 1-4, but are still below their relative parity to the south, so that further fractional hardening must occur when new business is undertaken. Foreign styles share in the patronage to a considerable extent and- all ar riving parcels are promptly placed. Advices from the south note great ly quickened demand along the At lantic coast; the sales of the week the largest of the season. The stand off between buyers and sellers was brought to a sudden terminationu mid week a heavy influx of distributive orders to. the former constraining im mediate operations on the best possi ble terms. Fortunately cleaned offer ings had accumulated somewhat and factors like Barkis, willin' to part with same at advanced recent figures; some few scattering lots of ordinary to-fair grades by reason of scarcity commanded higher prices and more relative worth. In New Orleans and throughout the southwest generally. the movement was spasmodic; alter nations delighting and depressing; one day. brisk and the next succeed ing dull to the extreme. The total in Louisiana and Texas for the week was sizable and under what Is thought to be significant indications of a coming demand of . wholesome proportions, prices are firmly main tained. The visable supply, count of stock, January 1st, reduced to cleaned, in the Carolinas and Georgia, 39,500 bar rels, 320 each; in Louisiana and Texas 956,500 pockets, 100 pounds each. The invisible supply is known to be much in excess of any former year as there is an increasing disposition among planters to keep crops in their own possession until marketing is de cided upon, and this year it has been made possible because of their being as a class financially independent. Be the forward supply what it may, it can under no circumstances prove equal to requirements and will un doubtedly be closed out long before the vanguard of the new crop 1b in sight. Cables and correspondence from abroad note light movement both for spot and forward shipment, although considerable interest is shown in ad vices regarding the crops soon to be entered upon. The reports from Ben gal indicate a short crop of Patna which has hardened holders' views. Opera House, lon OC I Sa.nrrfou J all.
