Air. vt uuoii a nurd contention was that
the .Excise lioaru, as created by Con
gress, Is a quasl-juuiclal body; its de
cisions ate nuai and conclusive, and
may not be uttackeu In criminal pros
ecution. "Court Without Power."
"I find In this law," Judge Pugh Inter
rupted, "that certain restrictions are
placed on the board. For example, not
more than 300 licenses may bo
Issued, and they may not bo granted to
places within a mue of the aolaiera
Home. XV ow do you hold tnat If the
board grants licenses unquestionably
violating tuese limitations tnat sucn
cases can not' be brought Into court?"
"Wo contend." replied Mr. Wilson,
"that the holders of such licenses can
not be made to appear In this court
under any circumstances. I am glad
your honor asked tnat question, for 1
wish to explain why this Is so. Your
court, has , no power of review. There
la no' way for your court, especially In
a collateral proceeding, to get at any
facts, for all hearings concerning the
validity of applications are mado before
the Excise Board."
Mr. Wilson's fourth contention was
that the provision In the Jones-Works
law prohibiting the Issuance of licenses
to places on streets where less than
60 per cent of the frontage repre
sented business property applies only to
barrooms and saloons and not to clubs.

Mormon Father Must
Acknowledge All Heirs
OGDEN, l Utah, July io. mat chil
dren born of plural wives cannot be
legally recognized as heirs unless they
have been acknowledged by the father,
is the construction placed by Judge
James A. Howell on the Utah statutes
affecting polygamy. ,
The opinion was brought out In 'his
Instructions .to the Jury considering
the case of Albert .Geddees, of Eccles,
against the David Eccles estate to
which the sixteen-year-old son of Mrs.
Margaret Geddes Is' endeavoring to es
tablish heirship, by claims that David
Kccjes was his father by a plural mar
rJage in 1889.
Thla is the first construction of the
utatus of children of plural marriages
since Utah became a State. The court
holds that, the acknowledgement, need'
not i be made public, but is binding,
even If made secretly and confidentially.

U. S. TRIES TO MAKE
Bona Fide White Product, Not
Gray, Is Object of Tests
With Various Woods.
Uncle Sam is trying to make news
papers. That statement Is literally true, for
ho really Is trying not to print them,
mind you mut to make them. To be
more explicit, he Is trying to devise
a way to make the paper for them. A
bulletin Is to be Issued within a tew
months stating the results of exten
sive tests, extending over three years,
and including forty different kinds of
wood, looking to the manufacture from
a new source of paper that will do on
which to print newspapers.
Now Uncle Sam's chief ambition is to
Issue not a "red paper," a "blue
paper," or any other colored "scrap of
paper'" but bona fide white paper. The
rub with all the paper made so far Is
that It Is no.t white, but gray.
Troubled With Color.
Now, this gray paper, made"from the
western hemlocks, lodgepole pine, red
fir, and other substitutes for the, spruce

NEW PIT PAPER
a. deficit of approximately tf.OOO. and th
University of Michigan has & nurpltrs
of only $200. The low net profit at
Michigan Is due to the fact, however,
that 'most of the profits wcr expended
on a new atadlum that Is now being
constructed at Ann Arbor, the first unit
of, which' will acrompiotlate 13,000 per
sons, r.nd the ultimate capacity of
which will bo from 62.000 to 65,000.
Football shows the greatest profit at
both Princeton and Michigan, but at
Williams there was a deficit In this
sport The football revenue at Princeton
was $38,884 and at Michigan about, $30,
000. Baseball at Princeton returned a
profit of $9,381, but at Michigan show
ed a loss or J3.7ZZ. Track caused a
net loss of $600 at Princeton and $4,012
Minor sports resulted In a loss to all
threo colleges, and the small profits
made in football were used in paying
their deficits. At Williams each stu
dent Is taxed $17 as his contribution for
athletics, and by levying such a sum
on the undergraduates it Is possible to
make up all the losses sustained In
U.S. TROOPS AT CANAL
Many Natives of Panama Ar
rested for Selling Cocaine to
PANAMA, July IB. Following an In
vestigation ordered by -Brig. Gen. Clar
ence R. Edwards. U. S. A., commanding
the Panama canal troops, many arrests
have been made and several convictions
have been obtained of natives of Pana
ma for selling cocaine and other drugs
to United States soldiers stationed on
Several soldiers have been arrested
and will be tried for using the drugs,
and probably will receive svere sen
tences for the deterrent Influence such
punishment may have on the many re
cruits that are constantly sent to the
The Investigation was begun a short
time ago. when the United States troops,
following riots, undertook a separate
patrol of the districts of both Panama
and Colon frequented by the soldiers
when on leave from the camps on the
Canal Zone. It was then learned where
soldiers were obtaining cocaine and be
coming addicted to Its use. It Is not
possible to obtain drugs on the Canal
; Zone because of the severe penalty at
tached to their sale ana use witnin
United States territory. .
.Agent For Drug Stores..
Capt. F. W.' Coleman, U. 8. A., com
manding the patrol .company, early In
his Investigation found 'that many of
the habitues of the tenderloin district
of Panama not onh; were -addicted to
the cocaine habit but also were acting
as agents -for several of the largest
dr.ug stores In the city. In the sale- of
the drur. He obtained conclusive evi
dence showing the connection between
the small peddlers and the large vend
ers. He ascertained also that In many
Instances the soldiers and others can
easily obtain the drug direct from lead
ing drug stores.
It has been learned that between 100
and 150 soldiers already have formed
the habit, and that its use has been
growing rapidly, especially among the
recruits who have recently come to tha
Isthmus. Most of these young soldiers
are from the Interior of the United
States. Iftj cases have been found
among the soldiers of the Twenty-ninth
Infantry, which formerly was stationed
near New Tork city, and thus probably
have come In contact with the results
of the drug habit.
One of the distressing features, say
the military authorities, is the, lack of
adequate co-operation on the part of
the. national polloe authorities of Pan
ama. They seem to be willing to arrest
and fine the small peddlers.' who are
mostly negroes, bUt unwilling to make
an example of the druggists, all of
whom are Influential men In the com
munity. Captain Coleman obtained con
clusive evidence that one of the leading
druggists of Panama was making a
specialty of the cocaine traffic, .but
owing to tho apathy and unwillingness
of -the Panama authorities was unable
to obtain adequate punishment.
The laws 'of Panama do not nrovlde
for more than a nominal punishment on
conviction? They specify a sentence of
twenty-nine davs In Jail, which mav tm
tripled If, In the discretion of the mayor
of Panama, such additional punishment
Is warranted. Heretofore the drug store
owners and large venders of hablt
formlng drugs have escaped with light
fines. The Canal Zone laws provide a
severe penalty for vending and use of
drugs, and few cases have arisen among
the white canal workers.
A detailed report of the Investigation
has been prepared by Major H. A.
White, U. S. A., of the Judge advocate
general's department, and sent to the
