The engineer replied that he would take whatever the government would pay him. He then admitted that he had sought employment from Mr. tree man about two years ago and had been refused. . . A copy of his report was submltted to him by Mr. Froctor for identiticatlon. After a lengthy quibble Mr. Mandy aa.d the report was probably his, but refused to vouch for it without m.nute ??*n?na tlon Mr. ProctOT did not ofter the paper ln evidence. but shovved pajMrwh-g it to the wltaaaa, aaktos him lt thoae slatem.nts were not true.

NEW COCAINE LAW, II r ontiaaed from a?t psge. most on the same line with treatment of the inaane. They need medlcal at tentlon and care that la polnted toward training them to withstand the craving for he drug, instead of lmprlsonment that makes no effort to take away their unnatural desire. "For that reaaon alone I will favor the amendment as propoaed by Aaaem blvman Smith, an?l I feel sure we can add lt to the law at thia coming aesaion Of tho Legislature." The plan to commit cocaine habltuea and those who pose aa habltuea, with a vlew to evading the strlngent lawa against tho sale of the drug. to the farm colony aoon to he opened by the Board of inebriety in Orange County haa yet to meet with a dlssentlng volce. Not only ia it characterlzed aa a ehar ity to the alavos of the hablt, but lt la also looked upon aa an efflcient meana of folling tho dealers in cocaine, whom the courts are in the hablt of pttnish ing with llght sentences or dlacharging altogether when they aro crafty cnough to malntain that the druga found on their persons are for thelr own tise. Praaent Law Too Looaa. Tho unwillinRness of the courta to (aMVtet persons found with the drug in thelr posseHSlon when they awear that they are addlcted to its use, even though tho law now rates possession without ? physlclan's preacrlptlon as proof presumptive of the intcnt to sell, haa already beon pulntcd out by The Trlbune. Numbera of rogular pedlers of the drug are said to have escaped the conserjuenceB of their crime by tak lng advantage of this condltlon. Tho passago of a law rommitting habltuea to the' inebriety farm, how? ever. will effectually put a stop to this praetlet, lt is held. If examination by a medical board fails to disclose any tr.'i'os of the ravages of the drug, the person found with it illegally in his possession will be promptly convhted under the present law. If, on the other hand, he ia actually found to be a drug user, he wlll be commlttod to the farm. The law will have him coming and golng." as the saying ls. The lmperatlve neceasity of having some n.eans of dealing, not only with sellers of the drug, but also with Its vlctims. was explalned yesterday by Dr. C B Campbell. chief medical ex aminer of the State Hoapital Commis? sion, whlch has charge of the insane asvlums of the state. ? Th- cocaine habit." said Dr. Camp? bell. "has caused n.any a man who might otherwise ha\e led a compara tlvely moral llfe to become a thief or evtn a murderer. It ls far more dan geious than aleoliollsm. not only to the vlctim, but to society as well. It de prive* its slaves of all moral sense, so that under its iufluence there is no crin.e to whlch they will not stoop. "Men have been known to commit lnurder merely for the sake of obtaln lng a llttle of the 'white stuff.' An nlooholic will never descend that far. The hablt is far more insidlous than alcohollatn and a hundred timea harder to bjaat The effects of the drug on the nerxous aystem of the user are a great deal more harmful and rapld than alcohol. Secrecy Makes It Worse. "The public does not fully reahze tho extent of the hablt at the preaent time. The alvoliolio habitue is more open with his habit. He takes his enjoyment in public places and is more ilable to be taken Into tustody. The drug user, however, snuffs his poison ln secret. and it is only at odd tntervals that some poor orazed vlctim daahea naked into the street, perhaps, and haa to ba plcked up by the polloe." Dr. Campbell went on to say that the man found under the Influence of any atrong drug, or having it on his per aon, ahould be brought before tha Board of Medical Examlners, and, if tho examination warranted, be commit ted to aome lnatitutlon, in exactly tha aame manner as is now done with chronic drunkarda. It was lmpoaslble, he polnted out, for the atate Insane asvlums to take care of such cases, for, whlle some developed protracted de luslons, the greater number recovered their normal mentality ln a faw lays. The habit, however, Dr. Campbell sald, waa a straight road to Insanity, and the percentage of lunatics sent to the state hospttals who owed thelr de generacy to an excesslve use of drugs was increasing. "Coke," partlcularly, ho explalned, produced pleasant delu slons in the mlnds of its users. whlch, as the habit hecame flxed, tended to become permanent. If the vlctim was treated early enough. however, he could he cured of the hablt, Just as the farm colony hoped to put habltual drunk ard8 on their feet again. Inebriety Board to Act. Thomaa J. Colton. preaident of tha Board of Inebriety, sald last nlght that tho final arrangements for the purehasa pf Durland farm, in Orange County, would bo comploted ln two or three days if all goes well. He spent all day yesterday amoothing out the flnal klnks in the negotiationa, and wlll have the matter ready for the Corporatlon Counsel before the end of the week. The people committed to the inebriety farm wlll be treated as sick men. not as erlmlnals, and every method of mod ern sclence wlll be exerted to make them aelf-aupporting, aelf-reapecting members of aoclety again. If the amendment to the cocaine law whlch ABsemblyman Smith told The Trlbune yeaterday he would introduce into the next Leglalature paeaea. drug uaera wlll be udded to the category and wlll have the samo opportunlty to ahake off their dcadenlng vlce. The new bill wlll have the backing of Judge Swann, of the Court of Gen? eral Sesalona, and Father Curry, of St. Jarnea'a Catholio Church, ln Jamea street, with hoth of whom Assembly nttn Smith has oonferred on lt.

QPJy three cocaine eases came up ln General Besalona. The defendanta were Arthur Donoghue, James Ixjrenzo and CbartM Savareae.

Up to January the four datectlvea ap pear to have had a rovlng commtsaton to capture cocaine vendera. On the afflda? vits whlch they signed ln the magiatrates' courts they described themselves aa Cen? tral Offlce detectlves. Of the three de? fendanta who came to trlal last Januarv one of them was arrested on Kaat 16th street and the other two on West 3*th Street. That clrcumstance would seem to show that the detectlves were not aa elgned to any particular pre^ ln<t or dis? trict, but that they went to various pana of the city to piek up cocaine sellera. It la the opinion at tha District Attor ney'a offlce that men who have had expe rienee in deallng with any particular form of crime or vice are able to present thtaT evidence ln better shape when they make arrests than those who makea arreata tov the same cjb*>ie, but who have not had much prevloua experience with crimes o'. that nature. It waa sald that whlle men experienced in the ways of cocaine sellers mlght hava some trouhle ln avoldlns rei cgnltion, yet their knowiedge of their quarry and its hablta would hep them to offset that dlfflculty. As a matter of fact most of tlie caa*' whlch dete'tlves bring to General Sesslons against men charged with selling cocaine rest on the testimony of some user of th? drug who is actlng sb stool plgeon for ;he police. It was sald that a somewhat akautf atate of facta exlsted regardlng the work of the Health Department in apprelv-nd lng cocaine vendera That work. it ?*' aald, waa formeriy in the handa of one in epector. The Inspector left the depart? ment a year or more ago and since that time arresta had been raad'e more or hM at random. __ Chafing Dish Cooking.
