Imports More Liquor- Than

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
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
It is figured that the 14,800 quarts
imported daily represent a retail value
of 14,400.
