Except Sonday By the Alexandria Gazette Corporation t 117 Kin? Street, Alexandria. Va. HOWARD W. SMITH, President and Treasurer WILLIAM A. SMOOT ... Yfce-Preafoent MICHAEL T. DWYER Editor Entered at the Postofflce at Alexan dria, Virginia, as second class matter. DANGEROUS POTIONS Statistics announced by police court officials in different sections of the country show a heavy in crease in drunkenness cases for the month of September. It is said that the vast majority of such cases re sult from wood alucohul concoctins, although cologne, Jamaica gingjr, bay rum, and horse liniment have figured in some cases. The arraignment 0/ a negro in the Police Court of this city last night to answer the charge of man ufacturing and selling intoxicants brought .many spectators to the court room. Thp paraphernalia of this "still" was especially interest ing. Bottles containing wood alco hol, soda water svrup. ctc., were ex hibited, and those present whes? wont it is to indulge in stimulants during this arid period had object lessons placed before them which they should not'forget. One man who had been taken in custody Monday for being drunk testified that he was one of the man's customers, and the dccoction he purchased had the kick in it necessary to make him -drunk?very drunk. ? On several occasions rccentlv it is has been noticed that parties brought to the station bouse in a drtmken condition have remained in -that state many hours beyond the time ordinarily required -to reoupe ! rate from a debauch. i It is known that, liquids manu factured by amateur distillers-and. sold as intoxicants are exceedingly j dangerous. Apart from the disturb-' an;es caused the stomach, such po-' tions tend to produce total blindness j and paralysis, while sudden deaths i have been attributed to the use of these dangerous potions^. JEFFERSON'S FAITH j It is a favorite device of th? op-; ponents of the peace treaty to ap :cal to the examples of the long-de parted statesmen c*f another day? to Washington, Jefferson, Jackson, Lincoln, etc., and to urge that there should be no departure from their lines of action, no matter how changed the circumstances. The Philadelphia Record says ''It i<3 a bit of pure claptrap, an:l should f'c:eive no one, for the slightest ac quaintance with American history |"?hculd show every intelligent person /that these great men were the very j first to make innovations when the j r.aticnal interests required them, i Jefferson's purchase of Louisiana ! ?rcm France, which was in direct > contradiction of theories long ad vanced by him, is a striking case in ? cint. Something over 100 years a-ro th . opinion of Jefferson was sought regarding a matter concerning which it was contended that there :>.culd he no deviation from the nirit of 177(5. In reply the Sage f Mcnticello wrote thess words of admirable common sense, which are rfcctly applicable to the situation r.t Washington today: "I knew that age well; I belonged ta-it and labored with-4t. de-=_ served well of its country. It was very like the present, but without the experienc of the present; and 40 years of experience in govern ment is worth a century in book rsading; and this they would say themselves, were they to rise from the dead?I know?that laws and Institutions must go hand in hand with the progress of the human mind. As that becomes moTe de 'v^cped, mcr0 enlightened, as new discoveries are made, new truths disclosed, and manners and opinions ' change with the change of circum st.ir.se, institutions must ad vr.iv also and keep pace with the times. We might as.well require a irirn to wear still the coat wnich fitted him when a boy, as civilized socicty to remain ever under the regiment of their?ancestors. 11 ia this preposterous idea which ha? recently deluged Europe with blood. J.et us fellow no such examples no - weakly believe that one genera tic:i is not as capable as another of taking earn of itself." These words, written in 1SJG. arc I respectfully commended to Senator Krr-v, Gecrg0 Wharton Pepper an:' '?'r.iitar timid souls who profess ti 5-ee dreadful terrors in the peace and the League of Nations. They lack the robust faith in America of the early fathers of the republic.
