A Physician's Opinion That It
U Not If
the Lady la Pretty.
From tlie Chicago Tribune
Several Chicago physicians whoso
names are familiar to the readers of
the Tribune were shown a dispatch
from Detroit printed In these columns
containing the news that an antl-klsa.
ing club had been organized In the City
iOf the Straits based upon opinions of
medical men of that town to the effect
that kissing Is an unsanitary pleasure
and should stop. One of the doctors
quoted said, "The sooner people are ed
ucated against kissing1 the better for
the community at large. Frequently In
my practice I have been called to at
tend patients suffering from the most
revolting skin and blood diseases re
sulting from kissing. Eczema and oth
er chronic skin troubles, cold sores as
, they are commonly called, diphtheria,
thrush, diseases of the tonsils, and even
tuberculosis, have frequently produced
corresponding diseases in some one the
elck person has kissed."
It is a matter of regret that no Chica
go physician seen by the Tribune was
willing to have his name appear on the
question at Issue. One of the oldest
and highest esteemed of those asked
read the dispatch carefully, and with
the reservation referred to said: "All
depends upon the person to be kissed,
Old as I am. If a beautiful woman
Bhould court my attention In that di
rection I must say I would yield to the
temptation and never stop to think of
the consequences. I think kissing can
be carried to excess. I would say to
those who ask me about It professional
ly. 'Choose your subject.' "
A young, and what women would call
handsome, doctor In one of the sky
scrapers on Washington Street said It
depended upon the location of the oscu-
ilation and the duration. "Unless," he
continued, "the person kissed has some
contagious disease a kiss upon the fore
head, or cheek, or hahd would have no
evil con sequences', i It is the long, lin
gering: kiss between lips and Hps that Is
unsanitary. And yet those who indulge
In such could not be Induced to give It
up no matter what might follow."
A middle-aged doctor on Wabash av
enue, not far from Jackson street, said:
"I have never yet known a man who
stopped to consider whether kissing
was unhealthy. As for women, It de
pends upon who the man Is, But what
is the use of going into the subject?
You cannot organize a society that will
stop It, and as for legislating against it
you might as well try to freeze the lake
from shore to shore."
An old bachelor doctor in the Chicago
Onera-House building said rather
bluntly: "No harm In kissing that I
know of. It's the huggln'. That's
what causes the trouble."
Inquiry was run in another channel
with various results. A South siae wo
man who is the mother of a bevy of
marriageable daughters confessed that
when she remembered the days of her
ene-ac-ement with her husband she
didn't have the heart to enforce an em
bargo on her daughters. It was an
equally clever woman who said to her
daughter as the latter was going to the
parlor to meet her affianced, "No kiss
ing," and as the girl went away the
mother added: "Don't let me hear of
it." To which the wicked daughter re-
n-Mfid: "You won't hear, mamma, I
cromlse you."
The kissing Of babies by most adults
is a habit, to a great extent. Neigh
borhood feuds have been created by
over-particular persons who refused to
kiss little ones.
A New Violet And a Big One.
I From the Ban Francisco Examiner.
The little flower which has evoked the
poetic tributes of so many fine minds,
and a chorus of admiration from pass
ers-toy, has never attained such beauty
as it now possesses in its latest and
most perfect development, the new Bin
g-le violet which has been named the
The purity of the color, the delicacy
of the fragrance, the grace of form,
and the unusual size of the "Califor
nia" place it easily in the lead of all
other flowers of its species, and with
many it will rank as the most beauti
ful of all flowers.
This new violet, for such it really is,
must rank with the botanical achieve
ments of the century, even though, like
many other floral successes, its history
is a little vague, and its existence seems
to some extent to be due to chance ex
periment. Professor Emory E. Smith has the
credit of introducing the California vio
let, and with him Joseph Carbone, as
the cultivator of the new flower, must
share the honors. The former gentle
man, in speaking of the flower, says:
"It has been in course of propaga
tion for three years, and has now at
tained its most perfect form, color, fra-
granoe and size. It is a vigorous plant,
absolutely free from disease of any
kind, and so unlike many other violets.
Its flowers are of immense size, sum
clently large to more than cover a sil
ver dollar. Its color is a clear violet
purple and does not fade. The fra
grance is intense, and the stems vary
in -length from ten to fourteen inches.
Known as the "Boston Bamboo," and
Has Certain Welcome Tonle Effects.
Anything In the shape of a before
dinner appetizer that will ameliorate
the deleterious effects of the Insidious
cocktail must certainly be welcomed as
a most desirable new-comer. The
drink known as the Boston bamboo can
perhaps claim all these advantagea
It is a certain stomachic, unquestion
able in its tonic effects, and, so far as
can be discovered, harmless as a bever
age. The Boston bamboo is an equal
mixture of sherry and Italian ver
mouth. The vermouth detracts from
the softness of the wine, while the sher
ry counteracts the acridness of the bit
ters. It ' might be claimed that ver
mouth itself Is but a partially dis
guised form of absinthe, but this is not
the case. AM the poisonous qualities- of
absinthe are absent in well-decocted
vermouth; although they are both man
ufactured from the same mother worm
wood. There is almost the same pro
portion of alcohol in vermouth as there
is in absinthe, but any drinker of the
latter will tell you that he fails to get
the old familiar sought after effect
Irom the yellow wine of Turin that he
never falls to obtain from the green d
mon of the Gaul.
Cocktail drinkers should welcome the
Boslton bamboo, for the reason that, al
though they cannot get from it th
same suspension of thought attributa
ble to a distillation of rye, there is n
doubt as to its efficacy as a stomachic
tonic and appetizer.
In the Interest of Justice.
Robert Barr in English Illustrated Magnzlno,
Public opinion had been triumphantly
vindicated. The Insanity plea had brok
en down, aid 'Albert Prior was sentenc
ed to be hanged by the neck until he
was dead, and might the Lord have
mercy on his soul. Everybody1 agreed
that it was a righteous verdict, but now
that he was sentenced they added
"Poor fellow!"
Al'bert Prior was a young man wh
had had more of his own way than was
good for him. His own family father
mother, brother and sisters had given
way to him so much that he appeared
to think the world at large should do
the same. The world differed with him
Unfortunately, the first to oppose hi
violent will was a woman a girl al
most.' She would have nothing to do
with him. and told him so. -He storm
ed, of course, but did not look upon her
opposition as serious. No girl in her
senses could continue to refuse a young
man of his prospects In life. But when
he heard that she had become engaged
to Young Bowen.the telegraph operator,
Prior's rage passed all bounds. He de
termined to frighten Bowen out of his
place, and called at the telegraph office
for that laudable purpose; but Bowen
was the night operator, and was absent.
The day man, with a smile, not Know
Ing what he did, said Bowen would like
ly be found at the Parker place, where
Miss Johnson lived with her aunt, her
parents being dead. ,
Prior ground his teeth and departed
He found Miss Johnson at home, but
alone. There was a stormy scene, end
insr with the tragedy. He fired four
times at her, keeping the other two bul
lets for himself. But he was a,cc
and a our at heart, and when It came to
the point of putting two bullets Into
himself he quailed, and thought it best
to escape. Then electricity did him its
first disservice. It sent nls, description
far and wide, capturing him twenty-five
miles from his home. He was taken
back to the county town where he lived
and lodged In jail.
Puiblio opinion, now asserted itself.
The outward and visible sign of its
action was an omnious gathering of
dark-browed citizens outside the jail
There were determined mutterings
among the crowd rather than out
spoken anger, but the mob was
the more dangerous on that ac
count. One man In its midst thrust
his closed hand toward the sky and
from his fist dangled a rope. A cry like
the growling of a pack df wolves went
up as the mob saw the rope, and they
clamored at the gates of the jail
'Lynch him! Jailer, give up the keys
was the cry. ' V1. . ','."
ard the sky and from his fist dangled a
rope, and they clamored at the gates of
the Jail. "Lynch him! Jailer, give up
the keys!" was the cry.
The agitated sheriff knew his duty
but he hesitated to perform it. But the
keys were not given up. The clamor
had ceased. A ynung man with pale
face and red eyes stood on the top of
the stone wall that surrounded the
goal. He held up his hand and there
was instant silence. They all recogniz
ed him as Bowen, the night operator, to
whom she had been engaged.
"Gentlemen," he cried, and his clear
voice reached the outskirts of the
crowd, "don't do it. Don't put an ever
lasting stain on the fair name of our
town. No one has ever been lynched
in this county, and none in this state
so far as I know.. Don't let us begin it.
If I thought the miserable scoundrel In
side would escape If I thought his mon
ey vould buy him off I'd be the man to
lead you to batter down those doors
and heng him on the nearest tree and
you kr.ow It." There were cheers at
this. . ")3ut he won't escape. His mon
ey can't buy him off. He will be hang
ed ifcy the law. Don't think its mercy
I'm preaching; Its vengeance!" Bowen
shook his clenched fist at the gaol.
That wretch has been in hell ever
since he heard your shouts. He'll
be in hell, for he's a dastard, until
the time his trembling legs carry him
to the scaffold. I want hini to stay in
this hell until he drops through into
the other, If there is one. . X want him
to suffer some of the misery he has
caused. Lynching is over in a moment.
I want that murdered to die by the
slow, merciless cruelty of the law."
Even the worst in the crowd shudder
ed as they heard these words and real
ized as they looked at Bowen's face that
his thirst of revenge made their own
seem almost innocent. The speech
broke up the crowd. The man with the
rope threw it over Into the gaol yard,
shouting to the sheriff: "Take care of
it, old man, you'll need it."
And so it came about just as Bowen
knew It would, that all the money and
influence In the Prior family could not
help the murdered.and he was sentenced
to be hanged on September 21 at 6 a.
m. And thus public opinion was satis
But the moment the sentence was an
nounced and the fate of the young man
settled a curious change began to be
noticed in public opinion. It seemed to
have veered around. There was much
sympathy for the family, of course.
Then there came to be much sympathy
for the criminal himself. People quoted
the phrase about the worst use a man
could be put to. Ladies sent flowers to
the condemned man's cell. After all,
hanging him, poor fellow, would not
bring Miss Johnson back to life. How
ever, few spoke of Miss Johnson, she
was forgotten by all but one man, who
ground his teeth when he realized the
instability of public opinion.
Petitions were got up, headed by the
local clergy. Women begged for signa
tures and got them. All except one,
and even he was urged to sign by a
tearful lady, who asked him' to remem
ber that vengeance was the Lord's.
"But the Lord has His instruments,"
said Bowen, grimly, "and I swear to
you, madam, that if you succeed In get
ting that murderer reprieved I will be
the instrument of the Lord's ven
geance." Oh, don't say that," pleaded the
lady. "Your signature would have such
an effect. You' were noble once and
saved him from lynching; be noble
again and save him from the gallows."
"I shall certainly not sign. It Is, It
you will pardon me, an Insult to ask
me. If you reprieve him you will make
a murderer of me, for I will kill him
when he comes out, if it is twenty years
from now. You talk of lynching; It Is
such work as you are doing that makes
lynching possible. The people seem all
with you now, more shame to them, but
the next murder that is committed will
be followed by a lynching, Just because
you are successful to-day."
The lady left Bowen with a sigh, de
pressed because of the depravity of hu
man nature, as Indeed she had every
right to be. '
The Prior family was a rich and in
fluential one. The person who is alive
has many to help; the one in the grave
has few to cry for justice. Petitions
calling for mercy poured in on the gov
ernor from all parts, of the state. .The
good man, whose eye was entirely on
his own re-election, did not know what
to do. If any one could have shown
him mathematically that this action or
the other would gain or lose him so
many votes, his course would have been
clear, but his own advisers were uncer
tain about the matter. ,A mistake in a
little thing like this might easily lose
him the election. Sometimes It was
rumored that the governor was going
to commute the sentence to lmprison-
People claimed, apparently with Jus
tice, that surely Imprisonment for life
was a sufficient punishment for a young
man, but every one knew In his own
heart that commutation was only the
beginning of the fight, ana that a fu
ture governor would have sufficient
pressure brought to bear upon him to
let the young man go.
Up to the 20th of September the gov
ernor made no sign. When Bowen ent
to his duties on the night of the 20th he
met the sheriff.
'Has any reprieve arrived yet?" ask
ed Bowen. The sheriff shook his head
sadly. He had never yet hanged a man
and did not wish to begin.
No, said the sheriff. "And from
what I heard this afternoon none Is
likely to arrive. The governor has made
up his mind at last that the law must
take Its course."
"I'm glad of that," said Bowen.
"Well, I'm not."
After 9 o'clock messages almost ceas
ed coming In, and Bowen sat reading
the evening paper. Suddenly there
came a call for the office, and the oper
ator answered. As the message came
over the wire Bowen wrote It down
mechanically from the clicking instru
ment, not understanding its purport
but when he read it he Jumped to his
feet with an oath. He looked wildly
around the room, then realized with a
sigh of relief that he was alone, except
for the messenger boy who sat dozing
in the corner, with his cap over his
eyes. He took up the paper again, and
read it with set teeth.
Sheriff of Brenting county, Brenting-
vllle: Do not proceed further with the"
execution of Prior. Sentence commut
ed. Documents sent off ty to-night
mail registered. Anstver that you un
derstand this message.
JOHN DAY, Governor."
Bowen walked up and down the room
with knitted brow. He was In no
donbt as to what he would do, but he
wanted to think over it. The telegraph
instrument called to him and he re
turned to it, giving the answeritig click,
The message waB to himself from th
operator at the capital, and. It told him
he was to forward the sheriff's telegram
without delay, and report to the office
at the capital a man's life depended on
it, the message concluded. Bowen an
swered that the telegram to the sheriff
would Immedlately.be gent.
Taking another telegraph blank, he
wrote; , ', .'. .'
"Sheriff of Brenting county, Brenting-
ille: Proceed with execution of pflor,
No reprieve will be sent. Reply if you
understand this message.
JOHN DAY, Governor.'
It Is a pity that it cannot be written
that Bowen felt some compunction at
what he was doing. We like to think
that, when a man deliberately commits
a crime, he should hesitate and pay
enough deference to the proprieties- as
to feel at least a temporary regret, even
if he goes on with his crime afterward
Bowen's thoughts were upon the dead
girl, not on the living man. He roused
the dozing telegraph messenger.
'Here," fie said, "take this to the gaol
and find the sheriff. If he is not there
go to his residence. If he Is asleep
wake him up. Tell him this wants an
nswer. Give him a blank and when he
as filled It up bring it to me, give the
message to no one else, mind."
The boy" said "Yes, sir," and departed
into the night. He returned so quickly
that Bowen knew he had found the
sleepless sheriff at the gaol. The mes
sage to the governor, written In a trem
bllng hand by tne snerlrr, was; "I un-
erstand that the execution is to take
place. If you should change your mind,
for God's sake telegraph as soon as
possible. I shall delay execution Until
last moment allowed by law."
Bowen did not send that message,
but another. He-laughed and then
checked himself in alarm, for his laugh
sounded strange. "I wonder If I am
quite sane," he said to himself. "I
doubt it."
The night slowly wore on. A man
representing a press association came
in after 12 and sent a long dispatch.
Bowen telegraphed It, taking the chanc
es that the receiver would not commun
icate with the sender of the reprieve at
the capltol. He knew how mechanical
ly news of the greatest importance was
taken off the wire by men who have
automatically been doing that for years.
Anyhow all the copper and zinc in the
world could not get) a message into
Brentlngvllle, except through him, un
til the day operator came on and then
It would be too late.
The newspaper man, lingering, asked
If there would only one telegrapher on
hand after the execution.
"I shall have a lot of stuff to send
over and I want It rushed. Some of the
papers may get out specials. I would
have brought an operator with me, but
we thought there was going to tie a re
prieve although the sheriff didn't seem
to think so," he added.
"The day operator will be here at 6,
I will return as soon as I've had a cup
of coffee, and we'll handle all you can
write," answered Bowen without look
ing up from the Instrument.
"Thanks. Grim business. Isn't It?"
"It is."
"I thought the governor would cave;
didn't you?"
"T didn't know."
"He's a shrewd old villain. He'd
have Inst next election if he'd reprieved
this man. People don't-want to see.
lynching introduced and a weak-kneed
governor is Judge Lynch's friend. Well,
good-night; see you in the morning."
"Good-night," said Bowen.
D'aylight gradually dimmed the lamps
In the telegraph room, and Bowen start
ed and caught his breath as the church
bell 'began to toll.
It was ten minutes after 6 when Bow
en's partner, the day man, came in.
"Well, they've hanged him," he said.
Bowen was fumbling among some pa
pers on his table. He folded two of
them and put them in his Inside pocket.
Then he spoke:
"There will be a newspaper man here
in a few moments with a good deal of
copy to telegraph. Rush it off as fast
as you can and I will be back to help
you before you are tired."
As Bowen walked toward the Jail he
met the scattered group of those who
had been privileged to see the execu
tion. They were discussing capital pun
ishment, and some were yawning, com
plaining about the unearthly early hour
chosen for the function they had just
beheld. Between the outside gate and
the Jail door Bowen- met the sheriff, who
was looking ghastly and sallow in the
fresh morning light.
, "I have come to give myself up,"
said Bowen, before the official could
greet him,
"To give yourself up? What for?"
"For murder, I suppose."
"This no time for joking, young man,"
said the sheriff, severely.
"Do I look like a humorist? Read
First Incredulity, then horror, over
spread the haggard face of the sheriff
as he read and reread the dispatch. He
staggered .back against wall, puttln
up hi3 arm to keep him from falling.
"Bowen," he gasped. "Do you do
you mean to to tell me that this mes
sage came for me last night?"
'I do."
'And you you suppressed It?"
'I did and Bent you a false one."
'And I have hanged a reprieved
man?" , '
"You have hanged a murderer yes.
"My God! My God!'5 Cried the sheriff.
He turned his face on his arm against
the wall and wept. His nerves were
gone. He had been up all night and
had never hanged a man before.
Bowen stood there until the spasm
was over. The sheriff turned indig.
nantly to him, trying to hide the feel
Ing of shame he felt at giving way, In
anger at the witness of It.
"And you come to me, you villain, be
cause I said I would help you if you
ever got into a tight place?"
"Damn your tight place!" cried the
young man, " I come' to give myself up
I stand by what I do. I don't squeal
There will be no petitions got up for
me. What are you going to do with
"I don't know, Bow.en. I don't know,"
faltered the official,', ori the point of
breaking down. He did not wish to have
to hang another maity and a friend at
that. "I'll have to.fsee the governor.
I'll leave by the first ttaln. I don't sup

I'll be here when you want me."
So Bowen went back to help the day

Rumors Entirely Governod the Stock Mar
ket Yesterday.
New York, Jan. 31. The stock market
was governed entirely to-day by the
rumors current about the conference be
tween the assistant secretary of the
treasury and the local and foreign
bankers. The conference lasted nearly
all day, and at Its conclusion it was
understood on the street that a call for
public subscriptions for $100,000,000 4
per cent, bonds will 'be issued shortly,
and that .the foreign (bankers will take
all of the bonds not subscribed for by
home investors. The reports had a weak
ening effect on the sterling exchanges,
and actual rates were reduced about
1-321-16. Government bonds were also
lower at the board. The withdrawals
of gold from the sub-treasury were
smaller than for some days past.
Taken altogether a more confident
feeling prevailed on the belfbf that the
ngotlatlons now going on between the
treasury officials and bankers will tend
to relieve the financial .tension. The
greatest, improvement was In Manhat

Louisville and Nashville moved up 1

large ibuyers of this stock, as well as
of St. Paul, which advanced 1 to 66.
Chicago Gas moved up to 74 on a
revival of the rumor that the inside
troubles had been adjusted and that
certain of the old directors will retire
shortly. Lead was also In demand and

the latter will then, be ready to take
