THE LAW BREAKERS
Another brewery was seized in New Orleans a few days ago for vio
lating the law, which fact reminds us that law-breaking has always been
looked upon by the brewers and distillers as their particular privilege in
this country. Bootlegging is not an invention of prohibition days. It is an
When national prohibition seemed remote or improbable, the booze
people bitterly opposed county option. If a county went dry, they saw
to it that the law was violated and the bootlegger booted the booze in.
When states began to go dry, the booze people then said they favored 81
county option, but not state action. Still they saw to it that booze was

people say they are for state prohibition but not national. They are always D
somewhere behind the procession.
The liquor people have always broken the law.
Now they have found that the government itself has broken its own fr
law. That delights them. I
Always tireless in their efforts to sustain their nefarious business, the
liquor people herald the fact that they have the government itself in a
hopelessly illogical situation because barrooms are being conducted and at
booze sold on United States ships at sea, after they are out of the juris- n
diction of the United States. $
They are right about this. The government has broken its own law.
But the announcement of this fact is not going to bring the booze busi- P

The American Shipping Board has attempted to Justify its toleration
of infringement of the Federal law on American ships at sea by declaring
that we cannot compete with European ships itf we do not have barroom In
accommodations while the foreign ships do. ka
That brings the suggestion that disturbs the liquor people. The United kr
States shall not admit to any of its ports any vessel under any flag that It
is equipped with a barroom or that retails spirituous liquors and beers. re
Could that be done? There is not a nation in all the world today that can
atfford to suspend commerce with America. European and Asiatic coun- th
tries alike are economically dependent upon comnmerce with America. an
Already many European countries are observing the better banking Fl

It is by no means improbable that this will be the next telling step

Wall Street, the money mart of the world, has doffed its hat to Henry e
Ford and admits that he is now the richest man in the world. In
RICHEST MAN IN WORLD sk
The farmer boy of Dearbon, Mich., but now the world's greatest auto- h
mobile builder, is credited with $180,000,000 cash on hand and an estimated ir
annual income, which for 1922 will total $125,000,000 before taxes are de- est
ducted or $110,000,000 clear. pa
With earnings which average about $100 a car, Henry Ford's company mu
could be capitalised at $2,000,000,000 and pay 5% on the money. In
Perhaps the most interesting thing about the Ford tortune, to the th
owners of his now famous car, is the importance of the replacement part
sales. Wall Street says a profit of $15,000,000 is made from this source
to keep the millions of cars now on the roads in running condition.
Ford's taxes in 192t1 were $50,000,000. This year, with the excess profit o
tax abolished, he will pay only $15,000,000 of his $125,000,000 Income. mu
Wall 8treet shakes a sad head when such news is passed out for con- ad
samption and admits that the former Michigan farm boy has won his own do
game and is a Wall Street unto himself. wi
Wail Street itself pays Ford $7,200,000 annually in interest at 4% on
his milllons which flow through there on loaans.
These figures were furnished Wall Street in a ticker statement this th

n't Indians of British Columbia and Alas.
en ka Have a Never-Failing Supply
of the Delicacy.
ng It Is tnot generally known that the

at It is from six to eight inches long and
an Every summer this fish comes from
n- the ocean up the rivers to spawn, like
salmon. Millions are taken to nets.
First they are thrown into rough bins
e made of cedar logs, where they lie for
_ a few days to soften In the sun.
re Then they are placed in great cedar
vats of boiling water, the latter being
heated by hot stones which are dropped
into them. This primitive method of
heating has been found to produce bet
r ter butter than when the fish are boiled
in the more orthodox fashion.
As the oil rises to the top it is
skimmed off. It hardens quickly and
has the appearance of lard. Beauti
