Montgomery, Ala., July 12.—Driven
to starvation by a sudden rise in the
price of charcoal, the negro washwomen
of lhe city appealed to the Mayor to
day, asking that he do something to
help them.
Because of the loss of revenue from
lhe prohibition law which threatened
to become serious, the city put a tax
upon nearly every business. A license
to sell charcoal new costs $10. The
charcoal dealers promptly doubled the
price of the commodity. The wash
women in turn tried to raise their
prices, but the indignant housewives
would have none of it.
So the old women and the young
ones, picturesquely clad, went to the
Mayor and told him their troubles, j
The old spokeswoman told him they

prayers were all they could give him.

INHIBITION FAILS.
OKLAHOMA,
igee, t). X., July 15.—1t is a
of a short time only before the
" this State will demand a vote
■ reiieal of the present consti
prohibition provision. The
)ry law has been a signal fail
le State. There is a general
lat there ought to be a change
:ind, a? the violations of the
aw are a roproach to the State,
ices are that the first vote that
litated to amend the constitu
te upon this question, and
ill seek to change the prohibi
local option law, by counties.
y town and hamlet the prohi
v is being violated, more or
is a wide-open, defiant viola
the larger towns. Even at
Is stores and ixistoHices where
.ry people assemble it is easy
[■ intoxicants in various forms,
;in the open country in har
s joints where liquor is sold
ing up. A notable instance of
rred near Fort Gibson, where
ged bar was set up in a potato
le shade of a tree and beer
c workers. There was also a
: den in connection.
I.VII'AXTS SOLI) OPENLY,
larger cities like Oklahoma
Muskogee bars are run as
if there were no prohibition,
clubs where anything can be
om champagne to beer. There
it 20 bars running in Musko
now, where beer is sold over
t 20 cents a bottle. These
popularly known as "joints."
■ate under the guise of "soft
ids" and take out a city li
uch. They pretend to sell a
and to persons unknown or
suspected of looking for in
, the barkeeper will hand out
' near-beer. If he knows .his
he will hand out a bottle of
real beer.
The "jointist" openly defies the law.
He opens up, is raided and arrested,
gives bond, goes back and opens up
again before the officers are around the
corner. He keeps on getting arrested,
sometimes fined, >iow and then sent to
jail, bnt the joint keeps going. The
court dockets have become so crowded
in the larger towns with cases of this
kind that the "jointist" figures that he
can sell enough beer before he is finally
tried to be comfortably well off any
way and he is willing to take the risk
of a jail sentence in the end. The dif
ficulty of enforcing the prohibition law
(at the sentiment seems to be
st it. I d the big towns men may
g to good government leagues and
reforms, but these hot days a ma
of them feel like liberty is being
ined if they cannot buy a cold
when they want it.
Hunting Blind Tigers.
Ast there is prospect of real pro
m as the result of a peculiar con
. In South Carolina Ben Till
ixteen years ago established the
Slate dispensary, giving the Staje the
lopoly of the liquor business* with
er own borders. The institution be-
B the sou rce and center and cause
dless corruption and villiany It
loped conditions practically as bad
iosc ofthe reconstruction era, made
es of good men, ruined reputations [
:h had been spotless, brought about I
?ry and grafting from one end of i
■State to the other. After several
lights the legislature abolished
Hate dispensary and ordered its
rs wound up, but left to each coun-1
ie right to decide by vote of its peo
ihether it should have its own
dispensary or prohibition. Six
counties of the forty voted in re
the dispensary. The last legisla
provided for a general local option
ion to be held this summer at
h each of the dispensary counties
vote to decide whether it shall re
or abolish the dispensary. The
1 tiger interest has lined up with
irohibitionists and indications are
all the counties will go dry. There
fore, the anti-prohibitionists and dis
lary advocates are swearing venge
against the blind tiger. They are
ng public notice through the
spapers that they will organize to
hat counties which vote prohibi
with the help of the blind tigers
ibe absolutely dry, that the blind
s who are working and voting to
■ the dispensary shall be bounded
hunted into thejails or out of the
ie one obstacle to the success of
lute prohibition is the tendency of
ties already dry to leave things as
are. Ui most of these, as we un
and, the blind tigers are doing a
ortable business, the drinking peo
lave made regular arrangements
lieir supplies and everybody is con
with the situation, ft may be,
;ver, that wh«n the indignant anti
ibilionists of the dispensary coun-
I'es get to work smiting and pursuing
the blind tigers their example will
spread. When those who use liquor
and openly advocate its use become the
j active and vigilant foes of the blind
tigers we may look to see blind tiger
ing become really dangerous and un
fashionable.—Richmond News-Leader.
