Some time ago the question arose in this county as to whether a teller of whiskey on prescription in a local option district would he held amenable to the law for making a sale ori auy kind of a prescription. County Attorney Bowd Farrar wan asked for an opinion in the matter and he held that the prescription must be given by a regular practic ing physician, dated and signed by him, and stating on his honor that he had personally examined the applicant In order to satisfy him self he was correct In his under standing of the law as construed by the court of court of criminal ap peals, in the Stephens case, Mr.. Farrar addressed an inquiry to the attorney general in regard to the matter. A few days atro Mr. Farrar rejeired the fallowing letter from the attorney general's office, which is giren in full Austin, Texas., Hept. 4, liMti.— Bowd Karrar, County Attorney, Waxahachie, Tex,—Dear 8ir This department is in receipt of yours of the 2nd inst As I under stand the opinion of the Court of ICriminal Appeals in the Stephens c»|f, it simply holds that the legis lature has no constitutional authori ty to pass a law punishing physi cians for the act of riving a pre scription in a local option district to any person to obtain intoxicating liquor except upon personal exami nation and to a person actually sick. In other words, the decision applies entirely to article 4U"> of the penal (.'ode. which ha* been amended by chapter 40, act* of the UMth legis lature, pa*re 57. This does "not, 1 think, affect at all the provisions of article ."·<».ί, which deals entirely with persons selling the intoxicants. The decision hold» that a physi cian who gives such a prescription without personal examination, or to a person who is nM a-ttially sick for the purpose of enabling him to procure Intoxicating liquor, wl,lie he cannot be proceeded against crlmi· η all y for the act of giving the près· rip lion he cau be prosecuted and con ν ic ted as a principal to the uni »w ful sale of such intoxicant Article 40't, I think, is not affected by this decis ion, and it is, notwithstanding this decision, a vi dation of the 1 »w for any person in a local option district to st-ll intoxicating liquors except upon tiie prescription of a regular practicing ph> sician, dated and sign ed by him. and certified on hi· honor that he the pl ysician has personal ly examined the applicant, naming him, and that he fiuds him actually tick and in need of the stimulant prescribed as a medicine. NVhiie the physician cannot be punished for the act of giving a pre scription without personal examina tion, or to a person not actually sick and needinir the intoxicant a- a medicine, the seller can be punish ed for making the sale, unleKs up in such prescription as is prescribed in article JUi. A prescription not hav ! ing these requisites would not, 1 ! think, protect the seller. Very respectfully, T. 8. Rk* , Office As*t. Attv. Uen'l. Death of an Aged Lady.

Ther* are quite a number of ne groes loafing about the city that should be given orders to move on or «et to work. This morning thir ty-eight idle negroes were counted on the west side of the ctfurt house lawn, and the walk on that side was so crowded with them that a person passing that way must needs violate the injunction "keep ofT the grass" or ifet into the street. We have calleci attention to this once before, but seemingly to no effect. Several citizens have reported to this office] offers of work to these idlers have been refused. A few days ago two white boys were taken into custody for beiiiçinii a meal, and at the same time there were numbers of idle, shiftless negroes in the city doing nothing, living doubtless off the la bors of their women. The cotton fields are Retting white, labor is be ιηκ sought and these idlers should be male to understand that they must either tro to work or move. • _.. _ .. . ea Salt NINt YfcARS Ago we sold but little Sea Salt: now we sell lots of it.

In no other country in the sojith is railroad construction being pusl.ed with the vigor that is sh >wn m Ok lahoma ami the Indian Territory. This is evinced by the fact tl.at con struction work being pushed everywhere in that country and nothing is bfing omitted that will hasten the completion of new Iin»-s now under construction. Rush orders have been given on the Muskogee Union railroad, build- ; ing north out of Muskogee. The! grade is nearly completed from Mutkogee to tlx· Verdigris river crotting, and a temporary bridge is being put in this week across the Arkansas riv»*r and trains will s<>on b»· running from h alls City to the Missouri Pacific tο Mutkogee. The new road is to connect Mutkogee with the Mittouri Pacific railroad. It is said the Missoun Pacific con templates putting on a flyer from Kansas Citv to Memphis and St. Louie, hv the way of Fort Smith and Little Hock. It is understood that the flyer ι» to he called "The Waggoner Limited." The service on the Mutkoge·» I'nion railroad will give a tervice on this fast trai: as well as the regular patseng··! trains now running aud will be a competitor to some extent to the Κ at y flyer.
