THE FEATDEE THAT IS OPPOSED. fie Does 'ot Object to Licensing on the Sasis of Population. A SLIGHT INCREASE WOULD DO KO HARM rrrxciAi. tklkgrax to Tin difatch. Philadelphia, April 11. No member of the .House or Senate is watching the va rious liquor bills with greater interest than Representative William H. Brooks, father of the now famous high license act. He keeps well informed on all legislative J affairs, and it is a matter of record that he has not been absent from his seat once this season. Mr. Brooks could hardly be called an eloquent man, yet he is a ready debater, and is generally heard on matters of general interest, or that particularly affect Philadel phia county. Coiily seated in a comfortable armchair and puffing industriously at a mild cigar, Mr. Brooks this morning chatted in an in teresting vein on the high license law and its general effect on the Commonwealth. "In my humble opinion," he remarked, "the act of 1887 has given pretty general satisfaction. Of course, it would be next to impossible to frame a bill that would satisfy everybody in every particular, but I think this measure comes as near to it as anything of the kind can." The Wholesale ActConld Be Chanced. "Do you think it should be amended?" "I think there are some particulars in which the wholesale law can be profitably amended, but I think it would be unwise to tack on anything that would in any way chance the spirit of the retail law." "In what particular, for instance, do you favor the amending of the wholesale act?" "Well, so far as it relates to the quantity told by wholesalers, I favor 3 change in that part ot the act. There is hardly any reason able doubt but what my 'wholesale bill,' as it is called, will pass. By this the whole salers, brewers, bottlers and distillers are to be brought under the same regulations as the retailers." "Is this necessary?" "It is,beyond the shadow of a doubt This has been made necessarv bv our experience with the present law." " "Will there be any opposition to this pro P06edch&nce in the wholesale law?" "Well, bo far, I have not seen anv open opposition or pressure against the bill. It may develop later, however. Of course tbis is a point upon which I cannot sav much." "Is the change demanded?" "My experience is that it is. I can say that there is a pronounced disposition on the part or the people of the State to make a belter wholesale act. This feeling is felt very largely by the retailers who have seri ously felt the encroachments of the whole salers upon their legitimate trade." Where tho Fight Conies In. "What particular feature is likely to cause the most interest?" "I apprehend that the feature of my bill which will meet with th mn.t ki,. Blstance will be tha: which classes the dis- To-morrow and Tuesday Men s Fine Business and Dress Suits Sio. $10. $10. $10. $10. -- -gag.-.

An eftort is likely to be made to secure a distinction for the brewers and the distillers taking their licenses away from the discretion of the Court, as I bare pro posed, and permitting it to remain as now." "What do yon know about what is called the Franklin bill?" "The Franklin bill passed the House and was defeated in the Senate. It provided tor a reduction of the tee in cities of the third class. There was a decided objection to the Franklin bill on the part of the Republican press of the State. There was and is an emphatic hostility to giving the cities of the third class the benefit of a $300 fee." "Did the bill eo through the House by a Iarpe majority?" "yes, by a verv large majority." "How was this?" A Combination That Won. "It was," responded the Representative, as he slowly crossed his egt, "clearly a combination. The members of the smaller cities were aoie to musier a iorce 01 mem selves to the number of 50. They wanted the $300 reduction, and, going to the Phila- delnhia and Allegheny delegations, who de sired an amendment to the present law to authorize trans. ers and the enlargement of the residences of the bondsmen, they were able to form an invincible combination, which even the party leaders were unable to break." "What about Senator Meek's bill?" "Senator Meek's bill is for the purpose of granting licenses on the basis of population. As I understand it, it is an amendment to the law of 1887, and provides that not more that one license is to be granted to every 700 inhabitants. Boroughs with a population of 500 are to be entitled to two licenses." "Do you approve of the bill?" "I see no objection to it. It is but another step iu the direction of the spirit of the orig inal bill." "What would be the effect of this bill." "Well, I have not studied it very care fully but I presume that it would increase the number of licensed houses in some places and decrease it in others. In other words it seeks a more equitable distribu tion." More licenses Mildy Favored. "What, for instance, would be the effect on Philadelphia if the licenses were giveu out on this basis?" "I think it would increase the number of licenses granted to about 300 more." "Do you think more should be given out there?" "Well, that is hardly a fair question to ask me. I think the Judges are fully com petent to direct what is needed, and I be lieve they have performed their very diffi cult duties in this respect in an admirable manner. A slight iucrease in the number of licenses granted in Philadelphia and Allegheny counties I am inclined to think would be a good thing, and would be benficial to the morals of the communities." "What, do you think of the law gener ally?" "That's another unfair question to ask me. However," remarked Mr. Brooks, as he arose from the chair and started to put on his overcoat, "I believe the sentiment of the people is overwhelmingly in favor of a restrictive license."

A sensational smt for $25,000 damages for false imprisonment was begun in the Superior Court to-day by Miss Annie D. Munson, a well-known South side society girl, against George W. Little, Jr., and Albert E. Little. Miss Munson is & daughter of Frank Munson, who is con nected with the Government printing office in Washington. In her bill she says she was engaged to be married to George W. Little, but that they became estranged. On the evening of March 3, she alleges, the Little brothers came to her place of residence in the ab sence of her brother, and forcibly removed her to the detention hospital, where they caused her to be incarcerated as insane, whereas, in fact, she was perfectly sane. The other side of the story is that the brothers believed her insane, and, finding her alone in the house, thought it best for her own safety that she be taken away and cared for. A MANIAC AMUCK. Be Was a Grip Victim, and Held the Fort Throush the Nlcht. Cedar Rapids, Iowa, April 11. News has just reached here of the terrible work of Hilco Jansen, a farmer living near Cleves. While temporarily insane from the effects of the grip Thursday, he attempted to kill bis wife, and almost succeeded, before Rev. Mr. Sehmidt and Dr. Symington, who were in an adjoining room, name to her assistance. He turned upon them and gave the Rev. Mr. Schmidt a terrible cut in the face and severely kicked the doctor. He then dashed up stairs, where he held the crowd off until the next morning. Reinhart Abbas at tempted at oue time to lead a party to his capture, but on reaching the top ot the stair way was struck on the head with a heavy piece of wood. His skull was fractured, and it is feared he will die. Jansen finally quieted down and has been taken to Grundy Center. A FALUHG WALL. It Destroys Two laves and Imperils 13 Others at Cincinnati. Cincisnati, April 11. By the fall of a wall along the west side of Race street at the corner of Fifth street at 4:30 o'clock this afternoon, where 15 stonemasons were laying the foundation of a great building, the lives were all endangered. By good fortune 13 of them extricated themselves without injury of a serious na ture; but Paul Glenn, the 18-year-old son of the contractor, was taken out a corpse, and William Gibson, a stonemason, aged 50, was entirely buried. He was dead when his body was found. The cellar is one of the deepest In the city, and the street wall was not properly supported. Onr Wall Papers Are new and comprise all the modern de signs.
