Penny MUST PAY STATE LIQUOR LICENSE IS ATTORNEY GENERAL'S OPIN ION ON SELLERS OF MALT MEAD DRINKS ETC As a result of an opinion handed down by Attorney General Breathitt at Frankfort last week, the vendors nt Malt Mead, Cream of Hops, Near Beer and other such drinks in Kentucky will hnve to pay the state liquor li cense of 1250, for It Is held that sucn beverages do not cotno under the head of "soft" drinks Inasmuch as they contain a certain per cent of al cohol. A number of dealers In Stan ford nnd Lincoln county will bo hard bit by this ruling, which It Is said, the Auditor Intends to Instruct Uie county clerks to rigidly enforce. Attorney General Breathitt holds that In local option territory alcoholic drinks can not be sold under the soft drink license. The opinion says: "This department has Just received n communication from A. A. Hazel rlgg. clerk of .Montgomery County Court, stating that he has an applica tion for license to sell 'Malt Mead' or 'Near Beer,' He states that it Is claim ed this drink can be sold under soft drink license by reason ot tho alleged fact there Is such a small or unap prcclable amount ot alcohol In same that It should come under this head In?. This department has passed up ou this matter Anally to tho effect that drinks may not be sold under the soft drink license that could produce intoxication. As local option terri tory Increases In extent In this state, It is reasonable to anticipate that en deavor will be made to place such drinks as are described before the public, and In such n way as to sub ject those who may indulge In them to no sort ot social condemnation; and Its alleged innocence will actual ly prove more pernicious to the young If allowed, than the open saloon, into which the same reople might never think of going. Until either the law or the highest court makes a distinc tion authorizing the sale ot malt bev erages' containing alcohol, It will be the ruling tot this department that they areJaiR"allowable under a soft drink license, having that appreciable quantity, at all events, In them as would create even in large quantities any degree of Intoxication."

Jnck Johnson the colored champion, clinched his title to the world's cham pionship of tho pugilistic arena when he decisively defeated the great re tired champion James J. Jeffries In 15 rounds at Reno, Nevada on tho Fourth of July. While Jeffries was not actually counted out ho wn3 saved only from this crowning humiliation by his friends pleading with Johnson not to hit the fallen man again, and the tow el was brought Into tho ring from bis corner. At the end ot tho fifteenth round Referee lex RIckard raised the black arm and the great crowd filed out glum and silent. Jeffries was dragged to his corner, bleeding' from nose and mouth and a dozen cuts on his face. He had n black clo3ed eye and swollen features and he held his head In his hands dazed and Incoherent. Johnson walked out of the ring without n mark on his body, except a slight cut on his lip, which was the opening of a wound received In train ing. Ring experts agree that it was not even a championship fight. Jeffries hud a chance In the second round perhaps, but after the sixth it was plain that he was weakened and out classed in every point, and, after the eleventh round, it was hopeless. It was the greatest demonstration the ring has ever seen ot the failure ot a "fighter to come back" after years of retirement. The youth nnd science of the black man made Jeffries look like a green man. The great Jeffries was like a leg. The reviled Johnson was like a black panther, beautifu" in his .alertness and defensive tactics. The fifteenth round started with a clinch after Jeffries had failed to land on the body. Jqhnson then tore loose and before the spectators were pre pared for the finish he had sent Jet fries down with lightning-like left and right blows to the Jaw. Jeffries reel ed and fell half way through the ropes on the West side of the ring. Those near him saw that he had lost sense of his surroundings and that the faces at the ringside were a blur to him His time had come. He was feeling what he had caused others to feel n the days of his youth and power. Johnson camo over to the spot nnd stood poised over his ndversary, his body ready for a left hook If Jeffries regained his teet. Jim Corbett, who twice had gone down before Jetfries' blows, and who had stood In Jetfries' corner all dur ing the fight, telling Johnson what a fool he was and how he was In for the greatest beating of his life now ran for ward with outstretched arms, crying "Oh go back don't hit him." Jeffries painfully raised himself to his feeL His Jaws had dropped, his eyes were nearly shut nnd his tace was covered with blood. With tremb ling legs and yielding arms he tried to put up a defense. But, he could not stop a terrirflc right sraa3h In the Jaw, followed by two left hooks. He went down again. Jeffries physician and other friends Jumped into the ring. "Stop it." they cried. "Don't put thp old fellow out." Sam Rerger. Jeffries, manager ran along the ring calling to Bob Armstrong- "Bring that towel you know what I mean don't let him get b'V From Johnson's corner his seconds were calling to him to qulL Then the referee stopped the time-keeper, and it was all over.
