MONDAY EVENING SEPT. 6,1!W9.
Tue brewers themselves acknowledge tbat a pot' ot cause of tbe progress cf prohibition is io tbe abase of the saloon ajetem, to which certain of them lend their support. These brewers frequently aid in the opening of saloons and In the payment ol licenses (ur the sale of beer without regard to the lawless practices in tbe back rooms. The Brewers' National Convention bas passed resolu? tions forbidding its members td enter? tain business relations witb the keepera of .aloons and drinking places io wbicb lawlessness and vice are tolerated io any form. Io their (Sorts in tbis direc? tion tbey have tbe encouragement ol tbat portico of tbe religious community that regards tbe liquor question witb moderation. Io that portion it has long been evident tbat prohibition promotes tbe secret consumption of fiery spirits at tbe expense of malt beverage*, which cannot be easily toocfaled aod smug? gled. It should require no argument to demonstrate that this is anything but promotive of the cause of temperance Yet in tbe prohibition States compara? tively harmless beer is put under the same legislative ban with tbe most in toj'ca'icg distillations. In tbis want o' dlfcrirr iuhtion is a sufficient reason why aqo ran legislation is so difficult of en io-cement in runniDg counter to cus? tom aid rational public opinion. As stated on Sa.urday au advance of 2* to 8 certs a pound io tbe price ot tbe best grades of beef, ribs aod loin* has beeo announced by tbe Ghicag< packer*. The cost of tbe next bes grades was increased ? and 1 cent a pound, while lower grades remain un? changed in price, except rounds, which have been reduced Mo 1 cent a pound. The sharp advance io the price of prime ribs and loins is a departure from tbe nsual practice of raising the figures by fractiona of a cent so that tbe increase would be less noticeable. Increased consumption is the reason given; but it is doubtful whether there has beeo any sudden increase io tbe demaod compar able witb this jacking-up of prices. The packers are proceeding exactly as they did before their combination was de? clared illegal, and before tbey wete sub? jected to an injunction from the courts. Governor Frown, of Georgi*-, as? serting (Lat lhere is but one law ia thai state for rich and poer alike, refused tr grant tbe petition of the state prison commission for leniency toward W. H. Mitchell, the wealihy Thomasville white man, who hud been convicted of kidnap? ping a while girl lor immoral purposes while he was disguised as an egro. Pow erful influences had been brought to bear to ss ve Mitchell furn serving the ?enteDce to the chRin gang, and the commi-sioD had asked tbat tbe convicted man be allowed to serve the sentence in prison. If there were more such gov? ernors as G-vernor Brown there would be fewer iran-n-rfsuors of the law. The horrors ii lynch law are vividly , protrayed iu a dispatch from Clarks, ville, Miss. Hiram McDaniel, of that place, was awung to a tree early today because a mob of aeveral hundrei en? raged citizens could not get his brother, Utah Nathan McDaniel, slayer of Po licecraa vVal er Marshall. Nathan wat caught in a swamp by a loree cf deputy aberifh and hurried t? Jackson, eluding tbe mob, in waiting lor the prisoner. "It's all the same, anyway," chorused the mob, when Hiram wa* discovered, and he pud wish bis life for bis brother's crime, Bct fen ihira are who sympathize with the \V<-s* ivint cadets who are im t ploring thc s-cretary of war to intervene to save them, if possible, from tbe ap? propriate cr-n*. queoces of their wanton mlsd-eds. They knew when they "baa.d" a comrade that they were breaking the law, and they knew what the con?eq'*ences would be if tbey were detected. Th-lr appral now for rein atateme it is not merely an appeal for pardi d, ?.gys the New York Tribune; it U a iequt?t that the law be nullified aod msde a mockery. Ac -rt urdav of having given hl8 f IM ?n tt years, Simon Fogarts, 52 years old, at Hoboken, N J , re*.!led tl at tho had never asked him lor rr ore. He had beeo arraigned be? fore R corder McGovern on charges of Intoxication acd disorderly conduct. It was te-'ified that be bad refused to sup? port l.is wife, who works for a living Fogarty said be did not see any nason to givt his wife m re money, as long as abe did not ask him for it. This is an? other exemplification of the troth tbat a gA'..d deal is lr s>. by not asking for it.
