Moved by aft intense desire on my
art to do wiat little I can to prevent
friends ofl® w and order loss of their
utomObOesJ I beg to call attention
to what I understand to be a very re
c<Sßt decision of the United States su
preme court In construing the federal
ict, to the effect that, wherever in
-toxicating liquor is found in an auto
mobile, both the liquor and the car
lost to the federal government,
or subject to be confiscated, and no
claimant of title thereto in any re-;
*pect, nor any person having a mort
j gage thereon, can object to the car
being confiscated, provided, I appre
hend the title claimant or mortgagee
consented to said car being used by
some other person; in other words,
i the title holder or mortgagee assumes
1 the risk of the car being put to an un
lawful use and confiscation by the
* federal government - . ,
i Now, our state statute perhaps does
*ot go so far as the federal act ac
cording to the above interpretation,
but the result will probably be the
same, inasmuch as.there need be no
surprise expressed by “liquor run
ners” and. thfeir friends, or by anyone
else, if in case there is an eftoi t in
the statue courts on the part of som j
person to claim title or mortgage to j
an automobile there sought to be con
fiscate 1 ?! that the federal government
is permitted to step in and take
charge of the car and bring about its
confiscation in a court which will re
fuse to recognize retainer titles, leas
es, mortgages, or any adverse claim
now in suet common use to prevent
law enforcement.
With few exceptions . the courts'
seem to be determined t? do what
they can to enforce these prohibition
statutes, andi the ; are re-
scant consideration for,
their various schemas avoid the
teeth of the lajy. u>j .0 *

The Banner has never had the
pleasure of perusing the columns of
Major Lew Brown’s popular daily—
the St. Petersburg Independent—but
from the many good words said in its
praise in so many directions we know
that it has been potential in the daily
life of St Petersburg, and is worthy
of all the honors’ that the Art Club
has in store it.
If a newspaper is true to -what is
expected of it and does its duty to
the public faithfully andt courageously
it is entitled to the' encomium, “Well
done.” j
This paper congratulates the St. Pe
tersburg Art Club, and hopes its “ed
itorial evening” will be an auspicious
®nd delightful occasion. .) }
SARASOtA’S TRAGEDY
■* ' I
Nothing that has happened since
the murder of the Eliots, mother and
daughter, has ad stirred the people of
this part of Florida as the murder of
Harry L. Higel, three times mayor
and prominent business man of Sara
sota. b'i l, If n
The fact that this awful .deed is
charged to Rube Allyn, long known
and loved for his gentle eccentrici
ties; and admired for his intellect and
wit newspaper man, entertainer and
publisher adds to the 1 horror of the
thing. Mr. Allyn has refused to talk,
ap to this time, and has kept quiet
while circumstances have woven a
seeming web of unpleasing texture
closely about him.
The facts are yet to be learned.
Doubtless they will come out at rhe
proper time. Until they do, wisdom
and charitableness would say do not
allow appearances to prejudice your
mind either Tribune.

TALKED WITH MONKEY “KING”
Buddhist Disciple Was Positive That
the Animal Understood Speech
He Addressed to Him.
A third degree disciple of Buddha
who halls from the famous Yellow
mountains (Huang Shan) says they
are the home of tigers, wildcats; wild
horses, goats, boars and an animal re
sembling a panther, with bristly hair
and impervious skin —and monkeys.
The monkeys he divided into two
classes, one the ordinary brown
monkey with sf tail, the other white
breasted and white faced, with a gray
hack and but little smaller than a
man. He intimated that this type
manifested a degree of Intelligence
when spoken to, very much resembled
man, and was tailless.
To this second class belongs Vhat
he called “the Great White Monkey
King,” ruler of all the beasts of the
mountains, and described as being
more than twenty feet tall, with arms
ten feet long, four tusks each at hast
a foot long, a face and ffyes propor
tionately large, and a voice that made
the earth tremble whenever it spoke.
He said he had seen this great mon
key king twice —once at a distance of
half a 11, and once when he dropped
down from a high cliff and stood with
in fifteen feet of it. On this occa
sion the\qonke.v king, was attended by
five smaller monkeys.
.He attempted to address them,
whereupon they all sat down and gave
respectful hearing, punctuating his re
marks with assenting grunts which in
dicated that the was being
understood. When he had finished his
speech the monkey king arose mutter
ing something and started away. ,
GREED WORSE THAN POVERTY
Former Always Fruitful of Evil, While
the Latter Is Often Incentive
to Thrift
The fear of poverty is not in Itself
a bad thing, writes Dr. Charles Au
brey Eaton In Leslie’s. It may become
the mother of thrift. It acts as a spur
to endeavor, and some men. like some
horses, do their best under the spur.
Poverty is not always an unmixed
evil. In fact, it is and has been looked
upon as one of the distinctly Christian
virtues, although there seems to he
rather a feeble desire to practice this
particular grace.
Greed, on the other hand, is always
bad. It is plainly the outcropping of
the hog In human nature. It *ls the
fear of poverty run amuck. It is Il
lustrated by the drunkard who often
had too npich but never got enough.
Greed Is at the bottom of most of our
troubles today and has been equally
fruitful of evil in every age and among
every class. We can never come to
permanent social peace while the fear
of poverty embitters one-half the peo
ple and greed drives the other half to
self-destruction. • Nor will It get ne
anywhere-to Infect the whole popula
tion with the greed germ and turn so
ciety into a glorified trough.

Japanese Marriage Customs.
Marriages in Japan are generally
brought about by older married cou
ples who act as go-betweens. There
is a popular saying that everyone
should act Is a go-between at least
three times. The go-between, know
ing a young man and woman whom
he regards as suitable to each other,
proposes the match confidentially to
the parents of both. If preliminary
reports are mutually satisfactory to
the two families, a meeting of the
young couple and their parents and
relatives fb arranged on neutral
ground. Any intimation of the real
purpose of this meeting is tactfully
avoided at the time, though the p\u±~
pose of It is, of course, fully under
stood by all concerned. Under this
arrangement either family may,!
without giving offense, drop the
matter after the first meeting, but if
the results of the preliminary in
spection are satisfactory to both
sides, the parents meet again and
definitely arrange |he match, "'which
is made binding by an exchange of
presents.
