CHEYENNE, Wyo., March 24. Gheyenna statiticians claim tha,t to. day this little clty'pf 12,000 persons imports' more! whisky th,an any. city pf equal size in the United S"tates. Cheyenne imports an average of one carload pf, liquor a, daj'. Recently promulgated shipping orders provide a car loaded wi(h liquor shall contain from 90 to 110 barrels. On the basis of but 75 barrels of wiskpy each car would coh(alh 3700 gallpns as a stan dard whiskey Vrrel contains forty eight galipns. or 29,00 pjLnls. Now 'the Cheyenne staticians figure there are eight average sized drinks In a pint, making the car contain 236.S0O drinks. A total of 236,800 drinks would gly.e every man, w6mau and child fh Chey enne twenty drinks apiecp daily, enough, say Uiese same statitiians to keep everj' man, woman and child per petually intoxicated if thoy were "the only ones to drink tho liquor which arrives here. But now it is said that but 10 per cent of Oheyenne's population or even less drink liquor. This would make 200 drinks daily for the 10. per pent. And each pcrspn included in this 10 per cent would havb to take a ' drink every seven minutes of the twenty four hours. Colorado officials charge that Chey enne is the chief hasp for bootleggers who operalo into Oxy Colorado". They point to these figures as conclusive evidence. It is figured that the 14,800 quarts imported daily represent a retail value of 14,400. on Shell Splinter Strikes Him in the Chest During the Ger man Bombardment.
