THE CAROLINA WATCHMAN.
WM. H. STEWART, Ed. and Pub. Published Every Wednesday at 120 West Innlss Street Subscription Price $1 per year strictly cash in advance Entered as second-class matter Jan. 19th, 1905, at the post office at Salis bury, N. C., under the act of Congress of March 3rd, 1897. Salisbury, N. C., June 28th, 1905 Beginning ot the Reign of Law. It is no secret that for many years the internal revenue laws of the Uuited States have been flag rantly violated in the western dis trict of North Carolina and that in a great many cases the viola tors have compromised with the goverment by the payment of fines which were often much less 1 in amount than the profits that I had been realized from the illicit traffic in liquor. The reference is, of ceurse, to the larger offend ers, for the smaller ones, unable to pay fines in considerable amounts, have made atonement by undergoing sentences to coun ty jail§ or Federal prisons. This proceeding gradually grew into a system, and under it the blockad ing of liquor has not, of course, decreased. It is no reflection upon Judge Boyd to say that he was, without doubt, aware of the custom, and it is altogether a credit to his conception of his duties as a judicial officer and to his humanity that he determined to break it up, butte give ample notice of the the method he should employ. He has therefore uttered full warning of his purpose to re sort to imprisonment for viola tions of the law, seeing that fines inflicted no punishment at all, the offenders making, easily, out of the very offences for which they were fined, the money with which to pay up and resume the busi ness. After announcing publicly and often that these violations had to stop, he began to sentence to penitentiaries and jails the rich and the “respectable” dis tillers and dealers who would not be warned, and if he persists in the policy, as he undoubtedly will, the offences will stop. The payment of fine and costs are nothing; the discomfort and humiliation of a prison is another matter. Judge iJoyd needs no commen dation for the vigorous policy upon which he has entered. It is right: he knows it is; and it is the only policy which prove effec tive. It has been too long felt that to defraud the government by defeating it of the tax to which it is entitled on liquor is no moral wrong. It is as wrong as it can be and it leads to all kinds of de moralization. Permit the people to become convinced that offence against one law is venial, and they soon learn to believe that there is no wrong in the violation of another, and another. It is difficult to say whether the influ ence of the illicit traffic in liquor reaches up and down—whether from the little blockade still in mountains up to the wholesale dealer or down from him to the little still. But both are faithful fountains of demoralization and both deserve to be dealt with with a mailed hand. All honor to Judge Boyd!—Charlotte Obsererv Mrs. Sailis Brown Gets $4,000. Mrs. Sallie Brown, who sued the Southern Railway some time ago for $80,000 because of the killing of her son, Charles R. Brown, while in the employ of said company here about two years ago.

In his remarks on the Arey case, an account of which appears in \ t he supplement to this paper, he ' pointed out that because a man is ! considered a gen 11 em an, bee au se j he has a good reputation and is | possessed of wealth, is no reason i why he should be allowed to con tinue violating the law and be permitted to go on the mere pay ment r>f money, while the less fortunate criminal must go to prison. This is unjust and Judge Boyd shows a proper conception of his duties when he insists that this shall no longer be permitted in his court. Of course we all feel sorry for a “good fellow’" who laces a term in prison, but no matter how much can be said in the man’s favor, the fact re mains that he has willingly and knowingly violated the law and continues to violate it for the purpose of gain, purely with the expectation that he can pay his way out If all men who violate the law knew that the violation meant a term on the roads or in the penitentiary, or even in j a i1, there would be a wonderful de crease in the number of crim inal cases on the court dock ets. The Landmark stands for law enforcement, and for the effort he is making to enforce the law, and especially for his effort to show that there is yet some j equality before the law. Judge j Boyd deserves all commendation. —Statesville Landmark. SALISBURY MARKETS. Corrected weekly by 1). M. Miller.
