report reads. "During i?>Is period it

think that the transportnt ion of spirit-*

extent the importation of liquor by

"Hegular steamship lines pljinjf be
tween Virginia ports and P.oston. New
York, Philadelphia and Hallimore bring
vast qtii'.nr??t ies of contraband whisky
into Hampton Heads for sale in the
harbor cities." It is report states. - Hun
dreds of men. from the master of the
?ship down, have been arrested. Thou
sands o.f gallons of whisky have been
seized and confiscated. Hut the coutts
have been lenient, the juries more so.
responsibility has been dillictiH to lix.
and few of these men have been
punished. ... In these gr<rat ships
whisky is found in almost every com
partment, in cabins, In staterooms, in
the lifeboats and life-belts, in the
smokestack and t,lie ventilartors. in the
forecastle, in tin anchor chain-", 'n the
engine and boiler-rooms, in the dlniiijJ
rooms. in the saloons or parlors, ill the
coal, in the boiler?everywhere. Fre
quently, more t h:\ti """ bo: lies ot
whisky are found by the olllcers. 1?>
sponsibility for a pint or quart or
liquor on a great ship is diiticiilt to
llx. but no jury should experience any
grout ditlioulty in tixing criminal re
sponsibility for '.'.eon bottle.- of whisky.
Tills trallic, though ceaselessly pur
sued. does not abate. "\Yh< n a conscien
tious jury sends one of the chief ex
ecutive olllcers of these boa's to work
on a county road, the trallic will abate.
There is slight decrease in the num
ber of illicit distilleries in the moun
tain regions of Virgina, according to
the commssioi;er. The section in Un
report covering this phase of prohibi
tion work reads:
S.MAI.I, i?istii,i.khu-:s
CONT1M !?: Tt> OPKIIATK.
"tn several sections <.>t" the State. tli<
mountains of Amherst and Nelson, 111
Mecklenburg and Halifax, in Pittsyl
vania and Carroll. but principally in
Franklin. Floyd and l'atrick Counties,
are families and neighborhoods in
which for generations illicit whisky and
brandy lias been distilled and (notwith
standing the vigilance of the Hailed
States Internal Kev.-nuc Department
and the inspectors of the Slate Prohi
bition Department) continue to oper
ate on a small scale. These operators
arc almost as numerous as two years
ago. but they no\\ operate intermit -
t< inly: foretime, constantly. Now they
use niily crude portable stills and
which, if seized by ol!ic< i s. do not rep
resent much value. ... In spite of
these dilliculties and traditions, this
trallic is slow.ly but surely dying out.
and the day is not far hence when
there will be no more of this in Frank
lin County than in Fairfax."
Regarding criticism of olllcers em
ployed by the Prohibition Department.
Commissioner Peters says:
"These ollioors are vililied, slandered,
assaulted, persecuted in some of tin
courts and murdered by the slaves of
appetite from one direction and prof
iteers from appetite from another,
lint the 'unklmiesi cut of all' Is from
Mr. (Silly) Oo?d Citizen, neither im
biber or a seller "f liquor, who from
sheer thoughtlessness joins in and
abuses the oflicers with the rest. I
aio glnil to report to you that I in
vestigate all of the serious criticisms
of these officers in this department,
and I have yet to find a just complaint
against them."
i,or A i. i.iri-'.Nsion dim iitii.vr
HAS t.OOl) Mucoid)
Speaking of the licensed druggist in
nichniond. the commissioner stated
that he had reluctantly approved the
application, but that the applicant was
highly indorsdd.
"i have never found liiin indifferent
to any suggestion I have iniule liini,"
states the c 'inuilssioner. "I lis business
has been closely checked and observed
by tli's department, and lie has fully
complied with the law. Hut I am sat
isfied from this experiment that the
law is abused by some physicians who
will almost invariably prescribe a
quart of whisky when only t gill or
less is required for the purpose, and
many physicians, I fear, from mistaken
kindness, yield to the importunities
fit* their patients for whisky when It
is really not necessary."
Two widespread criticisms have been
made of dru-.r stores licensed to till
liquor prescript ion..-, according to the
commissioner. The lir.-t is that the
druggists obtain their liquor from the
confiscated stocks held by the State
at price which is to> low. These
druggists have paid the State exactly
what thev would iia.e miid whole
salers, declares the commissioner.
INSXFF. TO SHU' SI'I It ITS
KOI I K.VIOX I.KI.AI. SVI.I-J
"They buy from the State only be
cause the safe .shipment of ardent
spirits b\ express or freight h*is be
come Well-nigh impossible." the com
missioner claim-.
The second criticism, stales Dr.
Peters, is that druggi.sts charge too
much for tilling these prescriptions.
Hi? i-xpla nai i'<n follows:
"Some druggists charge as much as
?* I per quart, others per quart, but
none of tin m charge more than TiO
cents . gill, ami nine out of tea pre
scriptions - li mid be fur one gill, but
more than nine out of ten are for one
quart. liven at _ this rate per quart
the percentage profit is lower than
druggists charge for other prescrip
tion.-. for the overhead expense of a
druggist is, perhaps, greater than the
expense ?>' Ids material: but bo thnr
s it may. all prescriptions cost about
."hi cents each fur any drugs, and an
ordinary prescription for one gill of
whisky costs .".0 cents.
"Now, why should a prcs-riptIon for
wliiskv (which every druggist abhors)
be sold foi less than a prescript ion
for other medicines'.' Personally, I do
not think whisky is necessary as a
medicine, but 1 do not feel "that 1
may intrude my personal views upon
the ilenera 1 Assembly, which has re
cognized it. and. therefore, in execu
tion of their laws I must discriminate
lotwecn personal opinions and oMicinl
action, but neither personally or offi
cially do 1 have any sympathy with
the hue and cry for cheap whisky,
much of which obviously outers into
uses that are not necessary.
iticmiovD iim'hk.ss okki(t:
CONSTANT SOIHCK OK TllOt 111,1-:
"Certainly not so long as bona tide
proscriptions for a gill may be pro
cured for 50 cents."
i.lttle trouble has been experienced
with express ollices, except in Kieti
tnond. according: to the commissioner.
He slates that the Hichniond ofllco is

"It is strange to tno," iio continued,
"why men who welcome an opportunity

they ate obliged to ride in a street

seems impossible to convince the pub

wherever crowds come together there
will certainly he s^me increase." he

Are You Open-Minded?
The average American is open
minded.
American business is conducted by
true Americans of vision, open-minded
men who believe in their country and
strive to meet their country's needs. The
men in the packing industry are no
exception to the rule.
The business of Swift & Company has
grown as the nation has progressed. Its
affairs have been conducted honorably,
efficiently, and economically, reducing the
margin between the cost of live stock and
the selling price of dressed meat, until
today the profit is only a fraction of a cent
a pound?too small to have any noticeable
effect on prices.
The packing industry is a big, vital
industry?one of the most important in
the country. Do you understand it?
Swift & Company presents facts in
the advertisements that appear in this
paper. They are addressed to eve/y open
minded person in the country.
The booklet of preceding chapters in
this story, of the packing industry,
will be mailed on request to
