Agt THE MOONSHINER Positively Not On the Decline and HE CANNOT BE STUPED OUT Each Year Brings Up About the Same Old Number Of Cases. IS A IMCTL'KESQl'B CHAKACTHU It has been said that tho Ken tucky Colonel is the only picturesque figure In Dixie that does not vanish with the years, owing to the fact that when a dignified gentleman of the Blue Grass State comes boom ing up Into his forties, the title of "Colonel" falls upon hint naturally. The Federal Court of tho North ern District of Georgia, which Is In session In Atlanta now, has a record for '"moonshine" cases which indi cates that at least one more charac ter of extremely picturesque quali ties is perennial Whether or not it Is to the credit of Northern Georgia, that mountain section Is probably more prolific of Illicit distillers of whiskey than any other section of the country. Furthermore, Judge William T. Newman 3 hearing at the present term of Court just as many cases as he has heard at any term of Court in the last 10 years. This is quite as true of the Fed eral Courts of the mountain districts of other Southern States. Each year the number may grow or fall off, but tho average remains about the same. Here are tho comparative figures upon the number of convictions, asl contained in uie report oi me uiu trict Attorneys in 1911 and 1014, the convictions being for the year preceding the date of the report: District. 1910. 1913. Georgia, Northern 244 3C9 Tennessee, Eastern ....110 10 North Carolina, Western 70 3 Kentucky, Eastern ....282 30.", Alabama, Northern .... C4 70 Thus it is that, every month or so, year In and year out, these rug ged mountaineers from the Alleghe-. ny hills come trooping down to the Atlanta Federal Prison to pay tho penalty for their violation of the law. The "moonshiner" Is probably the moet conscienceless lawbreaker up on the -face of the earth. Tho mat ter of making "corn llkker" to him Is business purely. He makes "moonshine" in a mountain ravine six days in the week and on Sunday takes his family to church with his conscience as free as the blue sky above him. And his point of view Is not so far wrong, perhaps. The rules of society are no broader than a day's communication. To make illicit whiskey lays no stain upon the re spectability of the "moonshiner" among his own people. His con viction Is not for making whiskey, but for refusing to pay a tax for so doing. Becauso whiskey is not con sidered a necessity of life, tho Gov ernment has chosen a barrel of whiskey rather than a barrel of flour upon whicli to placo a tax. The "moonshiner" feels that ho Is no more guilty of a violation of law than the city property owner who returns his property at less than its value. He feels that the dlfferenco Is that the property own er pretends that he has complied with tho law, while tho "moonshin er" says "catch me If you can." It would not be surprising If the solution of the "moonshiner" prob-l lem should He iu better means of , transportation and a thorough un derstanding of advanced methods of agriculture. Tho mountain lands are not fertile. Tho "moonsh'nor" ratios a crop of corn of Inferior quality which will bring a poor nrlco on the market after he has "HiInd it by wagon ovor many miles of bad road to a railroad station. If liu condenses a sack of corn to a Jug! I l of whiskey he solves his transporta tion problem and doubles the i"-1 come from his, product. These seem to be the main rear sons wjyr the "moonshiner" Is al ways with us. There aro, however, occasional whispers about the corridors of th,e. NQ GALLING Federal Courts which attract oiio'h attention (or a moment. A "moon shiner" with scarce clothes enough to cover his back Is convicted and his still Is destroyed. Ho serves hla term and goes back to tho hills. Shortly ho Is"-captured again with a brand-new still. A distilling outfit, oven of tho "moonshiner's" crude sort, costs money. Where does that money como from? And hero Is nnothor whisper ever, ever so faint: When tho "moonshiner" Is eradi cated, what will tho poor revenue offlcer do for a living? Whatever may bo tho reason, tho "moonshiner" is not on tho decline, and he Is a picturesque character, that ono cannot altogether hate and cannot altogether stamp with tho blackness of the common criminal.

FHEE INFORMATION IS GIVEN' From 10,000 to 15,000- consump- tlves go West In search of i health every year. Such Is an 'estimate made by the National Association for the Study and Prevention of Tu berculosls In a statement issued last week based on recent investigations of the United States Public Health Service Tho Association concludes that there are at present between 100,000 and 200,000 consumptives in tho States of California, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas ana Colorado. Investigations were mndo -during the past year by Surgeons of tho United States Public Health "Service, P. M. Carlngton In California, E. A. Sweet In Texas and Now Mexico, and A. D. Foster In North and South Carolina. Tho National Association draws the following conclusions from these studies: 1. Thousands of consumptives attracted by tho climate migrate ev ery ynr. to.thp West and Southwest. While no definite, figures can be pro cured, the facts ascertained would indicate an annual migration of at least 10,000 and possibly 15,000 into the States of California, Arizo na, Colorado, New Mexico and Texas. 2. From 30 to 50 per. cent of these consumptives are hopeless cases and die within six months af ter their arrival, the percentage of those dying within 30 days running as high as 15. 3. A large but unknown per centage die in almshouses ' or are the recipients of charity, and the great majority of these could have been made comfortable in their last days If they had stayed at homo anion? friends and relatives. 4. From 40 to 90 per cent of all deaths from tuberculosis In the West and Southwest are of natives of other States, nearly 50 per cent coming from Illinois, Missouri, Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee and New' York. 5. People who can afford it and wflio are not In too 'far advanced stages of tuberculosis will find tho climate of the West and Southwest an aid in the treatment of tubercu losis. "G. No one should think of going West or Southwest for his health unless he has at least $1,000 above his railroad fare, and can leave his family In comfortable circumstan ces; and no one should go wl)o Is In an advanced stage of tuberculosis or who has not taken careful medical advice. 7. Tuberculosis can be cured In any part of the United States, and it ,is far better for a consumptive of moderato means, such as the av erage worklngman, to go to a san atorium near at homo, than to go West and live in a more favorable climate without proper food or med ical care. 8. Finally, there may be plenty of Jobs In the West and Southwest for able-bodied men, but the con sumptive will find the greatest dif ficulty in getting work, and no one Your Attention, Please I have brought tlo celebrated Stallion Walnut Gixivo Chief No. 1031, back to Cciitertov.ii, Ky for tho remainder of the season, which is only n bliort time.

The au thor of tho article Is J. Herbert Duckworth, an Englishman, who, for about ten years, has lived iu Now York City where he has been engaged In Journalism. When the war broke out last summer he went to England where he remained through the fall and winter. Whllo there ho came confidentially into possession- of the-facte- which he now publishes.
