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
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. The following

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
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

solutely nothing about the amendment

case shall there be any wild and ex

way reflect upon the reputation of
Phoenix for good order.
It is suggested by The Republican
that either side, desiring to avail it

committee through which all matter
relating to the issue shall be trans

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

booze joint under a respectable name
he has much to fear, for this amend
ment would make his store r,..

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

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

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

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.
