Intoxicating drinks are being sold in this town and have been for some time in violation of both the state and national laws. It is not done opeuly. bnt anyouo who keeps his eyes and ears open will not want trustworthy evidence aud such evideuce can be had without sneaking around and re- sorting to metnoas peculiar 10 me whiskey smuggler. It is getting to be no uncommon thing to see drunken Turlliinii on nnr streets, and it Is not long 6ince the writer assisted one of these Door unfortunates who had fall en from his horse a few miles from town, to re-mount. Then there are men here in towu victims of the drink habit, formed in past years, who upon finding that liquor could be had here without difficulty, have gone back to the curse of their lives and their fami lies. I kuow one man who makes enough to comfortably support his familv, but as it Is his children are scdtitflv and noorlv clad and his wife without the common conveniencics of home life. I kuow another man who, rvhnit snho.r. ia kind and nrorides well. but ho has been drinking so much of ... . i a e late that bli family can naruiy nve with Mm. Ha has a cun and nistol which he keeps loaded and threatens to use to tho consternation 01 ois poor wife. Two nights lately the neighbors have been called in to quiet him. It is a common observation, I will re mark in passiug, that as tho intoxicant diminishes a man's mental calibre ho usually socks to make up the deficien cy by carrying a pistol. What would any sano man want with a pistol or other deadly weapon in such times? The fellow who carries one acknowl edges by the very act that he is a cow ard of the first water. It is pretty definitely known where this liquor is sold aud if the guilty parties think their actions are unobserved they are WpIvIho-lhomselveg. Circumstantial evideuce is often of the most unerring kind. TUere.are certain drugstores that have their secret agents. Money is placed in the bands of these unprin cipled catpaws who procure the ttufl; reserving a big fee lor their services. Only a short time ago, after their meeting, quite a number of the mem bers of one of tho prominent lodges here were seen to file out from the back part of one of these drug 6tores. Late at night and under the circum stances, 6uchlooks glaringly suspi cious. Besides these there aro one or t ven nl aces which tro under the name of a confectionery stand (now a gro cery) or restaurant, against which there is a good ileal ot renauio evi dence. It is strongly suspected by some, too, that intoxicating liquor can be had at a certain grocery store on the west side of Military 6treet. TVe want such places to understand that they aro allotted. All who are engaged in such business are trans gressors against tlm known laws of the Plate and nation and as 6ucn should bo punished to the full require iirnta of i hose laws: and if the M on er officers had had the backbone such men would have bad their dues long hnfVirn fliia. Thft man who sells cer tain Eo-called bitters or prescriptions when he has reason to suspect that tbe ourchasinrr nartv intends to use tho same for intoxicatiou is as guilty as the rest. The fault is their own and nnt of the laws thev violate. Prohibi tion does prohibit or the liquor dealers would not fiitht it so. These excep tions onlv prove the rule. It is a great gain to have the ruinous, aotestauie stuff out of sight; and out of sight means out of mind to thousands of young men who are growing up. Bat to have such secret law breakers in a community is a constant menace to its progress iu business or anj thing that is worthy. They produce nothing ex cept wretchedness and crime. They make of themselves groveling parasites feeding not only upou the poorer classes largely, but upon the baser iu Btinrta and anoolitcs of men. Before I would engage in this business of unmanning men I would go dressed in rags and break stones upon the street for the barest sustenance. Since Christmas several young men and mere boys have been drinking and creating "disturbance at public meetings. Not only so, but they have endeavored to lorce boys who have been properly brought up to drink with them. It is sunnosed that' all Litis is encouraged by these secret d strovers of men. They are not oiny corrupters of the youth, but some of them bound conspirators against the virtues of home life. Tt ia time that the law abidinz citi zens and tbe officers whose business it is to ferret out such crimes bad their attention aroused to the fact that it is their duty to see that the laws are en fnrrnd. "I hava nothlncr Dersonnllv against any of those parties, but I do detc6t the nefarious business to which thev sfoon. I have more to say in an- another issue. Jas. T. Cooteb. Buckten's Arnica Salve.
