MAY 16, 1908. ■«Ml NO. 4H ELECTION DAY JLAW ACT CLOSING SALOONS ONÎTEAT DAY WORTHLESS. SAYS DISTRICT ATTORNEY WAX Measure Fashioned in Haste. Judge Bruno t Says That Conclusion Reached By Official Seems to Have Substantial Basis. 1 Baton Rouge.—The Act of the legis lature requiring the saloons to be closed on general election day is worth less, and no indictments of the sa loon men of Baton Rouge will be brought in under it. as asked for by the 4*$es of the Home** Pretrct+re League of Baton Rouge. This is the opinion by District Attorney Wax, which opiuion he gave the grand jury at its sitting a few days ago. On April 21. general election day. not a saloon in Baton Rouge was closed, and publi cation was made of the fact. The La die?' Home Protective League took up the matter and addressed com munications to Judge Brunot, Dis trict Attorney Wax and the foreman of the grand jury, calling their at tention to this violation. District At torney Wax went carefully into the law. and he says that Act 152 of 1808. requiring the saloons to be clos ed on general election day, is in effective because the provision re quiring the enforcement says: "The Commissioners of Election are here by authorized to enforce this provis ion." This does not require the com missioners to enforce the provisions— does not that they' shaTl—but it eavs that the'v are "authorized." ! Saw Mill Plant Destroyed.

TED SAYS HE'S BOSS DECLARES SE '8 RUNNING ARMY 4 AND NAVY. f DENIES RIGHT OF CONGRESS To Interfere With Him, Claiming He Has Foil Power as Commander in-Chief—Write» Three Let ters to Three Senators. Washington.—Three members of the United States senate have letters from President Roosev JInn> £» m ilaj' • • tf c etanifl j supremacy •as Commander-in-Chief in all matters referring to the control of the Army and Navy. The letters have created intense feeling in the senate, and it is not unlikely that they will pre cipitate a conference of Republican members. The letters in every case «re in defense of his course in dis charging without honor the negro sol diers he believed to be guilty of shoot ing up the town of Brownsville, Tex., and his action in banishing Colonel William E. Stewart to an abandoned military post in a desert section of Arizona. The third letter came to Senator Stewart, of Vermont. A few days ago. during the debate on the Brownsville case. Senator Stewart asked a question indicating that he -had doubt as to the wisdom of ex tending to the president the power of -passing on the innocence or guilt of ex-soldiers applying for reinstatement in view of the fact that it appeared the president still believes all of the negroes to have been guilty of com plicity in the affray. The senator re ceived from the president a letter bearing on both the Colonel Stewart and the Brownsville cases. to the communication were letters to Senators Raynor and William Alden Smith, the one to Mr. Raynor assert ing chiefly the president's right as commander-in-chief to deal with an officer in such manner as he pleased, while the one to Mr. Smith was con fined to the Brownsville affair and reifcerated the president's belief that he. had dealt with the case as condi tions demanded.
