One of the arteunHinE renscfiuenccs of Fntty Ar huckle's trial for manslaughter may be the prohibition for bevernge purposes in Hollywood, of nil splriteus nnd vin ous liquors, distillations nnd brews from malt nnd hepp. gins, imported nnd do mestic Swedish punch, cordials nnd ether eoncectiona which mny-oentnin an alcoholic content greater than the one ene lmlf of 1 per cent prescribed In the writings of Mr. Velstead. About nil thnt the people in the feverish fringes of the. film colony knew nbeut this grent nnther is that he is n Nerwcglnn. Vague rumors bruited generally nbeut Imve caused them te view him with suspicion and Instinctive dislike.

Advancft Guard from Hollywood Indeed the great McNab had an ad vance guard et Hollywood folk nl ready in the corridors outside. Strict ly speaking, these were net movie peo ple. They were people who have wit nessed movie people's festivals of the sort of festivals that have been hinted at first in the case of Mre. Obenchain and again after Arbuckle's first arrest. McNnb hopes te show the jury that Virginia Rappe was a guest at ether functions such ns Fntty presided ever, at the Hetel St. Francis, en .Laber Day. nnd that the scenes which pre ceded her death had been enacted often before He said as much this morning. Be was prepared, he continued, te call many witnesses te substantiate this as as nertiem The people from Hollywood fringes are seemingly te show the dead Vir ginia up if they can. But it happens that theie sits in Judge Louderback's court n grim-looking little man who does nothing but write notes in a little book and wait until the jury renders a lerdlet in order thnt he may trundle Fallv off te the Federal courts te nnsu'rr a iinrgc of violation of the drj laws.

Because Freddy Fishback hap pened te have a wide acquaintance among girls, It will probably be neces sary for the charitably minded people hereabouts te organize a society for the feeding of indigent wine agents in the 'euthern revenue district of California.
