WM STATE HE PROHIBITION GreatTrials History. TRIAL OF DUKE OF ORLEANS The present Duke of Orleans, Louis Philippe Robert, the pretender to the throne of France, has had a stormy career through the most part of hi3 life. With his father, the Comte de Paris, the duke was exiled from France in 1886. For several years thereafter he served with the English army in Indian and upon his return, he having obtained his majority, he entered Paris on February 7, 1890, expressing his desire, as a French man, to perform his military service. This act on the part of the duke caused great excitement, and he was arrested in conformity with the law of 1886, which forbade the soil of France to the direct heirs of the families which had reigned there. When the duke reached Paris on February 7, he was driven to the home of the Duke de Luynes where he was arrested and taken to the prefecture of police. On the after noon of the same day he was ar raigned before the military authori ties, following which the minister of interior, M. Constans, ordered that he be held in custody. He was placed in the Conciergerie Prison. On the first day of his trial, when the charges were '."ead to him, his only reply was that he had come to France to perform his military duties and drafted a letter to Presi dent Carnot stating his desire to serve his country. The trial was continued until the following Wednesday, February 12. - On that last day the crowd of spec tators was sc large and so demon strative in favor of young Orleans that the gendarmes were compelled to clear the room. During the hear ing the duke asked his counsel not to defend him. He said that he had learned in exile to honor the magis tracy and respect its decision. If condemned by the court he was sure of acquittal at the hands of 200,000 conscripts of his class who were more fortunate than he had been and who were able to serve their country. The counsel for the defendant de clared that the duke's act was the result of a generous impulse and would be an honor to him through out his life. The counsel further contended that the law imposing military service upon all Frenchmen nullified the law relating to the exile of princes. The duke addressed the court In his own behalf. He said: "I came to France to serve tas a common sol dier. I have nothing to do with politics, which only concerns my father, whose obedient son and faith ful servant I am. I knew that by entering France I rendered myself liable to the law, but that know ledge did not stop me. 1 love my country and wish to serve her. I am guilty of no crime." In spite of these expressions of loyalty, they foil upon the deaf ears of his judges, and he was found guil ty of violating the law and was sen tenced to two years' imprisonment. The demonstration that followed the sentence was so violent that twenty five arrests were necessary. Upon being taken back to his cell the duke drew back the curtain which covered the window and saluted the crowd. The Count of Paris, who arrived at Porto Rico on the day that sentence was pronounced, then first learned of the arrest of his son. He im mediately sent a cable despatch to M. Baucher, an Orleanist member of the chamber of deputies, saying: "My heart is with' my dear prisoner." Orleans continued in jail until June 3, 1890, nearly four months, when he was pardoned by President Carnot and exiled. On the same night he was conducted to the Swiss frontier by the Duke de Luynes, arriving in Brussels on the 5th, where he was met at the railway station by one of the royal carriages and conveyed to the palace where he took breakfast with King Leopold.

"SEE IT" The very important issue of state wide prorihibition has been raised. 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 found 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 that the com munications for and against prohibi NEEDLESS CRY OF ALARM Long before the Arizona Pharmaceu tical Association met at the Adams hotel the Temperance Federation of Arizona was aware or Its plans and purposes. We knew that the call was inspired by the Royal Arch, an organ ization of saloon keepers, on the plea "Boys we must hang together on this deal or we will hang separately." We knew Just the motive and just what the Association would do. We knew that they would not call upon anyone connected with the proposed dry amendment to explain its provis ions, for it was not Information they wanted. They were not there for that purpose and they did not propose to be diverted from the set intent with which the association had convened. Dr. Harvey W. Wiley, for twenty nine years government chemist and the greatest pure food authority living, is president of the late pharmacopoeia convention called to revise the national pharmacopoeia upon which the drug gists are supposed to depend. This Arizona body did not consult him. though he knew more in a minute about the matter than they will ever know. He says: "I am firmly con vinced that the evils produced by al cohol so far outweigh any of its sup posed advantages as to lead logically to but one conclusion, namely, the absolute prohibition of the use of alco hol for any but industrial purposes. To show the difference between those who honestly seek information and those who rush blindly where an gels fear to tread, the state convention that formulated the proposed amend ment considered fully all of its details and sought light from every authority. Particularly did it consult Dr. Wiley, head of the national organization in charge of the revision of the pharma copoeia. We were under no obligation to do so, but a sense of truth-seeking impelled us to that course. The body that met at the Adams hotel did noth ing of the kind. Information was just what they did not want. They came there to avoid seeking after truth. They were there at the beck and call of the Royal Arch under the impres sion that they were all in the same line of business, not at all complimen tary to any druggist with self-respect Dr. Wiley further states: "Brandy and whiskey are no longer used in medicines in sufficient quantities to warrant their retention in the phar macopoeia. This fact has been ascer tained by consulting large numbers of acting practitioners who have re sponded in such a manner as to show that brandy and whiskey are rarely found at the present time in the prescription of the most progressive physicians." And the fact is that Dr. Wiley is right. Now, If this body of Arizona drug gists had been seeking the truth and had really wanted information, they would have met at the hotel and at once sent to the Royal Arch for what light their office could furnish and they would have sent to the Temper ance Federation headquarters for what light that office could furnish. Then they would have candidly con sidered both and after due discussion they would have agreed upon a plan ol action. But they listened to the whis pers of the Royal Arch that knew ab solutely nothing about the amendment and ignored the Temperance Federa- day he arrived at Dover, England, where he was met by his father and a large number of friends, and where he was given a most cordial reception. Since his banishment the Duke of Orleans has lived at various points in Europe, in England, in Belgium and in Spain. Less and less is France inclined again to take up a monarchy, and more and more is the duke giving up the idea of ever be coming the sovereign of that country, but instead has been devoting his life to explorations, and. to writing on this subject. 6 REELS ALL GOOD A Suspended Ordeal ONE REEL A screamingly funny Key stone comedy in which that laughable loving Fat Boy, Fatty Arhuckle plays the prominent part. It is a fit ting ending to an all feature program that will please and satisfy. "SEE IT" tion be just and fair and that in no case shall there be any wild and ex travagant 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. tion that knew all about it. As a re sult they got off on the wrong foot Harry Brisley, of Prescott, wrote a letter to the boys (also inspired by the Royal Arch, which always fears to come out into the open so long as they can find someone willing to rake their chestnuts out of the fire), in which he works himself into a fury over a false assumption. This could have been avoided if he had really tried to learn anything about his subject. He pic tures a frightful condition of affairs, in which the dear public will be unable to get its camphor and cosmetics be cause of this amendment. The facts are that the amendment has nothing whatever to do with preparations in which alcohol appears. The dear peo ple can still buy Peruna and vanilla extract and Hostetter's Bitters, and all of the usual drug store prepara tions without let or hindrance, and the pharmacists who met at the Hotel Adams knew this when they took their action, for they had the opinion of the attorney general before them at the time. Why did they not publish this opinion instead of the letter of Harry Brisley? Was it because the attorney general knew what he was talking about and Harry Brisley did not? All the amendment does Is to pre vent the use of alcoholic beverages as medicines in and of themselves. The doctor cannot prescribe whiskey for his patient and the druggist cannot sell whiskey. The doctor can prescribe drugs containing whiskey and the druggists can sell drugs containing whiskey. The only difference made by the amendment is that the druggist cannot compound his preparations himself. He can get them from his wholesale druggist, made by responsi ble companies who manufacture under the provisions of the pure food and drugs law, and the people get exactly what they ask for instead of cheap substitutes put up bv Tom, Dick and Harry even Harry Brisley. Mr. Brisley also regrets that we will have to go back to the old days when "our forefathers gnawed bones and tore flesh while squatting upon their rush covered hearths of home." All of this will happen because of this amendment, because forbidding the druggist to sell booze will necessitate the prohibition of knives and forks for the reason that some people are in jured with knives and forks. If you fail to get the connection, that is your fault, for this is the style of argument that has been advanced by the wets for fifty years and you will" hear it all through this campaign. We take pleasure in informing Mr. Brisley that whenever knives ani forks make people drunk and raise the devil generally we will be out after them, and not before. In the mean time Mr. Brisley may possess his soul m peace. We are not after anything in the legitimate drug business, we nre after the illegitimate. If Mr. Brisley conducts a clean store as he should, he "ds nwng to fear. If he conducts a booze joint under a respectable name he has much to fear, for this amend ment would make his store r,.. able again. Mr. Brisley holds a United States government license to sell alcoholic liquors at retail. He evidently prefers this to selling soda fountain drinks for the amendment would more than double his soda fountain trade and that is supposed to be the best-paving department of a drug store. The" one debases, debauches and damns the race, the other refreshes and gratifies No man ought to hesitate in his choice but there are some men who would not surrender a government license to sell that which causes men to murder wives, and both to smother babes. Here i.( the annual criminal record of alcoholic liquor, the sale of which Mr. Brisley defends with such energy 3.000 wives murdered by husbands. 5.000 suicides. 2,500 children killed by fathers 10.000 murders of all kinds. 15.000 children deserted 60,000 girls ruined. 100,000 orphans made 1.000,000 confirmed drunkards. 4.000.000 regular drinkers. 20.000,000 moderate drinkers parents. babieS 8mothcre(1 by drunken 25,000 insane. 10,000 divorces. 100,000 convicts. 120,000 paupers. Are we to believe that Mr. Brisley prefers to contribute his annual share to this frightful slaughter rather than give up his license to sell booze? That is all the amendment could possiblv mean to him. Any other solution is mere pretext. Not a single sale he could make now will be forbidden under the amendment except booze in bottle or bulk. No man is to be blamed if he comes to the conclusion that Mr Brisley weigh these sales against human blood and tears. But maybe, as Mr. Brisley says we can safely "leave this false charge to rankle in those small brains who give it breath." Aside from the impossible metaphor of brain giving breath we acknowledge receipt of Mr. Brisley's opinion of the temperance forces of Arizona, and place it on file for future reference, we are glad of this open ing gun. We are glad that it. was fired from Prescott, the most beer-dominat- OUR SERVICE MEANS Quality-Accuracy-Promptness DR. E. MUNS0N Arizona's Leading Optician and Optometrist 118 W.

It is peculiarly appropriate that this should be so. Here is exactly where the skirmish should begin and we do not know of any better gunner under the circumstances than the Royal Arch which worked up the Adams hotel meeting. However, let not Mr. Brisley and the Royal Arch in his rear imagine for a moment that the pharmacists of the state can be fooled by them. There are too many of them who are with us for the amendment. They wish to make their business respectable and above suspicion, and incidentally they will reap the profit from the temperance drinks they will dispense from their soda fountains. A great many of them do not desire to confess that they think more of their booze business than they do of their respectable busi ness. An open alliance with the Royal Arch is an open confession that the drug store is a booze joint and does not care who knows it. G. F.
