"SEE IT" ac U 9e U GreatTrials Hisfory- TRIAL OF SIR JOHN FENWICK Sir John Fenwick was the prince of social highwaymen during the reign of William III, and for being implicated in a plot to assassinate his king he lost his head. In fact, Sir John could not have had very much head to lose, for he was continuously "losing his head" throughout the better part of his life. He was a baronet and a man of consid erable ability, but he was also of a profligate and restless disposition. Although Sir John commanded a regiment in the service of William III when that monarch was the Prince of Orange, as soon as William became king, John became one of the most per sistent of plotters against his throne. He was always fomenting disturbances and was several times placed in the Tower until his ardor somewhat cooled. He was most rude to Queen Mary and, according to one version, ventured to cock his hat in her face, while other versions add details of even more marked impertinence. Two years before he was finally brought to trial he had concocted an elaborate scheme for the assassination of the king, but it miscarried in that William unexpectedly left for Flanders before it could be carried out. The plot was discovered and Fenwick kept in hiding. When the trial of his confed erates, who had been captured, was held, he found there were only two witnesses he had to fear, so he decided that he wonld be able to bribe them. Sir John thought he had succeeded and could make his escape, but he was apprehended in Kent when of his way to France. The king did not act hast ily in his case because he believed he could secure from him a confession which would implicate others. Fenwick only rrvealed as much as would impli cate his political enemies. When this confession was read, In which he implicated Marlborough, Go dolphin, Russell and Shrewsbury, the king directed the confession to be sent to the lords justices expressing, at the same time, his astonishment and In crudelity and gave orders that Fen wick should be sent immediately before a jury. It was deemed advisable, how ever not to hurry matters too much, for the prisoner might be induced to make more revelations. When brought before the bar of the house of commons, Fenwick was still obstinate, and it was moved and carried without a division that his confession was false and scandalous. While the guilt of Fenwick was morally certain, and was aggravated by his subsequent disingenuous conduct, it can scarcely be affirmed that the procedure against him was justifiable, as regards either the tribunal by which he was tried, or the manner In which the trial was con ducted. In fact, Fenwick's attainer was de cided on to render escape impossible and for the same reason the law re quiring two witnesses in cases or trea son was dispensed with, and there were other Irregularities. A writer commenting on the trial at the time said: "I do not find many con cerned for his person. The course of his life has been such, and the man agement of the part he had now to act so bad, that he had few friends: but the method of punishing him being out of the common road, and such as has not been often used, and when it has been condemned by those who have judged coolly, is what some are startled at." Fenwick's wife. Lady Mary, used every effort to save her husband's life by petitioning both the king and the house of lords, but Fenwick's adroit ness in putting forward the plea that he had been privy to an assassination plot in 1695, and had frustrated it, only served to prove how deeply he was in the confidence of the conspirators against William's throne. The bill of conviction against Fen wick was passed by the house of lords, by the small majority of seven. Seeing no hope was left, he desired the ser vices of one of the deprived bishops, a GEO.

He was beheaded on Tower-hill on Jan uary 23, 1697. Owing to Fenwick's connection with so many noble families, and possibly also to the fact that he had been pro ceeded against by attainder, the for malities employed at his execution were similar to those used In the case of a peer of the realm. Burnet states that he "died very composed, in a much better temper than was to be ex pected, for his life had been very ir regular." His remains were placed, by his friends, in a rich coffin and buried on the evening of his execution by torchlight under the pavement of the Church of St. Martin-in-the-Flelds, where they lie near the altar.

A campaign In favor of a constitutional amendment will be shortly instituted. This, like all other important ques tions has two sides, on each of which are founr honest and Intelligent per sons. The Republican has decided to pro vide for a reasonable discussion of this issue In its pages, allowing to each side at least a half column daily for signed articles, for which there will be no charge. No anonymous article will be published. It is only stipulated lhat the com munications for and against prohibi OUR RESPONSIBILITY When Michael Kilroy reeled to his tenement home in the early hours of the holy Sabbath, in the Christian city of Boston, his pockets emptied of the money promised to his wife (she a floor scrubber and woman of general work, drunkard's . wife and mother of drunkard's children) to buy clothing for lack of which his children were freezing: when he an swered her appeal for a fulfilment of his promise with a blow that knocked her to the floor; when with his fingers upon her throat he choked her prayer for mercy; when with his heavy boots he kicked that wife, about to become the mother of an other of his "drunkard's children;" when he sat for hours listening to her moans and watching her suffer ings utterly unmoved by them; when he brutally maltreated the children who would have brought help: when he struck away the water that her little daughter was lifting to her bloody, thirsting lips; throughout all this, I say, drink alone actuated him. Neither earth nor, hell has offered any other agency, in the history of the whole human race, that has im pelled men to deeds of such atrocity! In other words the saloon killed Bridget Kilroy; and the saloon not only made Michael Kilroy do that Insanely devilish deed, but it has transformed uncounted thousands of other men into fiends of the some low type, driven to deeds of equal brutality. Drink, friends, is today preparing more men for just such deeds: and you know, and we know and the world knows, that it will take boys from your churches, boys from your schools, aye, God pity you! perhaps even boys from your homes, and will transform them into such brutes to work, later, similar atrocities on women who today are lovable and loving girls. In my Sunday school, I personally know some who have al ready been carried to their homes drunk! It was only twelve days before the butchery in that Boston tenement, that Vincent Vincelsk came home drunk in Pittsburg and chopped his wife and children to death with a rail-cutter. It was only thirteen days before that John Blissctt of Detroit, drunk, emptied his revolver into his wife's body and poured kerosene over her, and was standing with lighted match to make her a burnt offering to Drink when the police broke in upon him: and just one month and a day before, that father in Indiana came home drunk, sought to kill his wife with a hatchet, and insteadtwas shot dead by . his son. With what hideous glee must the devil have laughed when ' he saw these "jokes" of the saloon! And such rases are innumerable. Indeed, before Michael Kilroy came home to kill Bridget, you and I aad every body in the whole land kne that because of the drink traffic some man would come home and kill his wife; knew that the hideous proces sion of such crimes would keep right on from the same accursed cause. There follows another procession. In a column as long as thecars they continue marching on through out the future, radiant with love and beauty, crowned with wifely devotion and motherly affection; some of them grey-haired; some of them carrying infants in arms; some, like Bridget Kilroy, having little ones just ready for birth, and others but just wear ing bridal veils; while beyond these are maidens and little girls, flcwer crowned or with skipping ropes and dolls, advancing to take their places, in the distance, for, if "history re peats itself," there is born every five minutes one innocent qhild who is destined to die a drunkard; and the saloon-made brutes, the man who be cause of a law-sanctioned temptation, will have forgotten love and honor and plighted troth, will shoot and stab and stamp the lives out of them also, before the gaze of the Amerl- j can people, should it still tolerate the saloon. ' tion be just and fair and that in no case shall there be any wild and ex- travaeant statement that will in any way reflect upon the reputation of Phoenix for good order. It is suggested by The Republican that either side, desiring to avail it self of this offer of space, name a committee through which all matter relating to the issue shall be trans mitted. In such case, all communica tions received at this office from other sources will be rejected. We believe that this arrangement is ne cessary to keep the discussion within reasonable lines. No paid advertisements from either side will be accepted. DRUGGIST'S OPPOSE AMENDMENT Before members of the Arizona Phar maceutical Association, assembled here yesterday afternoon from every section of Arizona, a letter from former Pres ident Harry Brisley, of Prescott, was read. This letter was in line with the object of the meeting, discussing the proposed liquor amendment to the state constitution. There were also letters from President J. H. Barnett of Mesa. On the presumption that the proposed amendment would prohibit druggists from shipping in alcohol for use in medicinal preparations, the association voted that a committee be named to give statewide publicity to that section of the amendment and to endeavor to secure the defeat of so much of it as would so effect the business of the re tail and the manufacturing druggists. This committee consists of W. H. Tim erhoff, Prescott. chairman; Ed Litt, Tucson: J. M. Ball, Bisbee: Thomas E. Thorpe, Phoenix; Will Marlar, Flag staff. The Brisley letter is as follows: Prescott, Ariz., July 20, 1914. Gentlemen of the Pharmaceutical Association of Arizona: Finding it impracticable to be with you at the meeting called in the city of Phoenix to sound in our ranks the toc sin of alarm, I yet wish you to know that as your first president, (though president no longer). I am still with you to the last ditch, particularly in the matter now before us and affect ing so vitally our calling and the honor of our profession. The danger menacing us while at present appearing intangible because our indictment is not yet read or the prison bars about us, is no less real in fact. The foe we fear is at the gate demanding entrance, and only determ ined resistence with every agent at our disposal and every brother shoulder to shoulder using his weapons of defense can assure us our freeJim from ser vitude. Antipathy to alcohol is running riot; the people with a little knowledge are proving dangerous; those having one good thotieht are losing every other by abnormally enlarging this regarding the ba'duiiness of alcohol; the very people who pride themselves upon ther moral lives rnd good influence on bo ciety, church, r.nd stat;- are now f uivi en masse before the palace of justice demanding the death of one w horn they for years have been trained to believe has nothing of good in him, yet if whose clamour be so appeased will be forced to'admit they have foolishly an! cruelly slaughtered a friend in dis guise, one of the most useful and pow erful agents for good as well a-? evil that God ever gave to the mind of man to perceive. We as pharmacists know only too well that "they know not what they do," and if sucessful would rue fully regret the carnage done in their heated moments. Admitting, as we most, that alcohcl Is an agent of great harm to mankind if foolishly or Immoderately used, yet the same may be said of nearly if not all material things so long as we are upon this earth to which we are born, and if it is got d sense to demand and yote for the to'al destruction and use of alcohol in Arizona, It must be equal ly wise or equally foolish to call for abolishment of all sex relationship; to prohibit the importation, sale or use in any way of any knife or other cutting tool capable of inflicting injury upon another and so to deprive other crafts than ours of the tools of employment, relegating all of us to the good old days when our forefathers gnawed bones and tore flesh while squatting upon their rush covered hearths of home. This would seem a menace impos sible in this year of our Lord, nineteen hundred and fourteen, but that you may realize the danger is a very real one you have only to carefully peruse the written opinions before the voters In Arizona and, to credit the written opinions of leading attorneys whose letters are now before you. I charge that the framers of this proposed law exhibit their unfitness as legislators by the crudity of its pro visions; their blindness in not per ceiving that it carries the elements for its own rapid death, and that hatred has lead them to mistake fanaticism approaching that of the East Indian as the religious duty of a Western supporter of the church and her in fluences. In order that faddists be allowed full sway shall we as druggists be branded as criminals and felons subject to im prisonment, and confiscation of all fruits of our years of industry because we import into the state alcohol for which the federal government has is sued us a license? And which is neces sary to us in fulfilling our obligations as pharmacists to the people of this state and for which duty the state has issued us permits? This law if it carries, as at present is most likely, makes us felons if wo honor almost any prescription of a phy sician, or refill those already in the possession of the patient; while exist ing laws would rightfully penalize us if we refused. The housewife, the nurse, or the mother anxiously brooding over her sick child, must be refused those rem edies on which so much depend and which she has been taught to use, as spirit! of nitre, paregoric, spirits of camphor, tincture of iodine, witch ha zel, or any recipe into which the smal lest amount of alcohol necessarily enters. The barber using bay rum, the clean ly person in the daily use of listerine, the child early taught the value of ru bifoam upon its teeth, the responsible citizen calling for the usual tonic for his near-bald pate each must be re fused his seemingly innocent demand: and respectfully bow to the wishes of others who will have forged their ideas into a concrete force at the voting sta tions. If this is wise legislation, proceed next to rob the carpenter of his ham mer and the farmer of his horse, pro hibit automobiles and railway engines, especially imprison and heavily fine every person found in possession of firearms; and, to cap the climax of this exhibition of ignorance, prohibit the manufacture, use, purchase, or car riage of anything capable of making a fire! It is for us who are most conversant with the necessity and the uses of al cohol, aided by the physicians of tho state, to proceed at once in the edu cation of the voter, that he may real ize that the spirit of wine is not an unmixed evil, but, like fire, is a neces sary agent and good friend to man kind. And who, in a campaign of this sort, has so many opportunities as the druggists and his clerks? We must uso the opportunity the public gives us by informing our customers and friends by word of mouth, by placards in tho store and out. or by public pronounce ment, of what alcohol means to us and to them. Request the voter to register his or her no to the constitutional amendment as proposed, until oppor tunity is given to amend it by an in sertion exempting alcohol when it is shown to be for medicinal, scientific, mehanical. sacramental, or toilet use. Publish our appeal in our trade mag azines, request every newspaper in tin; state to voice our fears and our opin ions oi this most important matter, for the good of their readers. And it would appear that, owing to this hasty and ill-considered amend ment as proposed by the opponents of the saloon, and those who oppose the use of wine or beer in any form, willy niily we shall find ourselves lined up with those of the other fide, thus ex posing ourselves to the probable charge that we as druggists favor the use and sale of whiskey for "business greed" reasons. But we. may safely, I believe, leave this false charge iO rankle in those sma'll brains who give it breath. Mean while, I advise you individually and as an association, get busy. Yours very truly.
