(Conducted by the National Woman’s Christian Temperance Jnlon.) CRIME INVESTIGATION. Mr. Fletcher Dobyns of Chicago ■aye in a published statement that his investigations as attorney for the city council crime commission have influenced him to go out and fight the saloon as the greatest source of crime in Chicago. He asserts that almost all crimes are committed by abnormal persons, and that in tracing the source of these abnormalities he has found it to be, in a large majority of cases, the liquor evil. “Before I started my investigations in regard to crime,” says Mr. Dobyns, "I was not a total abstainer or an advocate of closing the saloons. But now I believe that alcoholic drinks do more than anything else toward creat ing the abnormal person. We must face the liquor problem. I say it not as a prohibitionist, but as a student' of crime." PRACTICAL BALOON SUBSTITUTE. The Illinois Steel company started a campaign against drinking among their employees in their South Chi cago mills a short time ago. The sa loonkeepers, by the .way of retaliation, established elaborate free lunches and advertised the fact. They posted signs which told of the bad effects cold lunches have on digestive organs. Over the doorways of saloons pictures of large steaming bowls of soup were painted. One sign read: “Don’t come in to drink; come in to eat.” The steel company came back with the establishment of a restaurant in the plant with the following menu: Bowl of Soup 2c Roast Beef and Potatoes 5c Ham Sandwich 2c Tomato lc Beans 2c Pie lc Coffee 2c Ice Cream 2c ALBERTA DRY. Alberta, Canada, is the first domin ion province to abolish the saloon by direct vote of the people. It voted dry July 21 by 20,000 majority, the law to go into effect July 1, 1916. This great newly white territory comprises 260,- 000 square miles, an area larger than the cdmbined states of Oregon, Wash ington and Idaho. A factor of great influence in the victory was the indorsement of the prohibition measure by the medical men of Calgary who thus placed them selves in the front rank of efficient and up-to-date physicians who are everywhere declaring the evil effects of alcoholic beverages. HAD SIGNED THE PLEDGE. The artist was painting—sunset, red, with blue streaks and green dots. The old rustic, at a respectful dis tance, was watching. “Ah,* said the artist, looking up suddenly, "perhaps to you, too, na ture has opened her sky-pictures page by page? Have you seen the lambent Same of dawn leaping across the livid east; the red-stained, sulfurous islets floating in the lake of fire in the west; the ragged clouds at midnight, black as a raven’s wing, blotting out the shuddering moon?” "No,” replied the rustic, shortly; "not since I signed the pledge.” WILL STAY IN JAIL. With tears in his eyeß Charles Boyer, sixty-three years old and a prisoner in the Multnomah county Jail, Oregon, pleaded with county officials that he might be kept in the Jail until the state goes dry on January 1, 1916. "Every time I get near booze,” explained Mr. Boyer, "I get drunk. Every time I get drunk I hire a rig and go for a ride. Every time I go for a ride I forget to bring the horse hack to the stable.” "We will keep you in Jail until Janu ary 10,” the Judge assured the prisoner when he heard the plea. "The state ought to be good and dry by that time.” GOVERNMENT FIGURES. According to statistics made public by the treasury department, Internal revenue collections on spirits are de creasing about $1,250,000 a month, and this despite the emergency "war tax” levied on wines by the last con gress. That there has been marked de crease in the amount of distilled spir its consumed in the United States the past year is shown by the following figures: From July 1, 1913, to May 1, 1914, the taxeß were $135,518,495. From July, 1914, to May 1, 1915, they were $121,804,705 —a decrease during the ten months of $13,713,790. CONDITIONS IN VERMONT. When Vermont first went back to license, in 1903, 90 cities and towns voted that way. This year there were but 17, and two of these (Burlington and Rutland), the only ones of any im portance which remained wet, stayed sg by but from 25 down to 12 majority. Its return to prohibition by popular rote on March 7, 1916, scorns assured. BEST WAYS TO COOK BACON Meat le Too Frequently Wasted Be cause Insufficient Thought Is Bestowed Upon It. Bacon Is an extravagant article In the list o( cooking materials because of its increased price and the fafct that often twice as much as is needed is used for garnishing other foods. This delectable meat will probably never be low-priced again, yet it will always be a great addition to the menu, so that to know the best ways of using it without waste is a neces sity if one is to cook well. Tbs drippings from bacon are the best sort of shortening for cookies and everyday pastry; therefore, every bit of the fat that renders out in cooking should be strained and saved for such uses. This reduces the Urst cost of the meat very much, for the shortening bill has soared with the price of pork. All left-over bacon makeß excellent seasoning for meat loaves and may be nicely browned for garnishing by being dipped into egg batter and then into fine crumbs and placed in a hot oven, on a bacon rack, until golden brown. If you have never broiled bacon on a rack you have a culinary treat in store, for even inferior bacon becomes fine tasting Ti en broiled so and best bacon delicious. Any wire broiler or oven rack -nay be used; the slices are spread out, just touching, not cover ing, one another, on it and placed over a dripping pan in a hot oven. Sometimes bacon is as salty as salt can make it an' requires soaking in hot water after it is cut; after such treatment the salt is not too apparent. The best of sausage can be made at home with the following ingredi ents; One pound of veal, one pound of fresh pork, one cupful of bacon chopped and one cupful of cracker crumbs. Grind the veal and pork fine, add crumbs and bacon, seasoning of pepber and sage with little salt, as the bacon supplies this. Grind the mixture again and shape into cakes and fry. Cold meat cf any sort may be used in place of the veal. GOOD LUNCHEON FOR CHILD Delicacies the Youngster Will Appre ciate and That Will Keep Him In Best of Health.

STATE CAPITAL NEWS Western Newspaper Union News Service. GOVERNOR'S BTATEMENT. Cates Against Strikers * Not to Be Quashed. Denver.—Governor Carlson has is sued a statement to the public in which he announced that he would take no action to end the prosecu tions arising out of the recent coal strike that are now pending in the courts. The governor’s statement is as follows: “For a number of days certain citi zens have conferred with me with a view of having stopped the prosecution of all pending strike cases. “The unselfish motives of those who have urged this action upon me and the importance of the subject caused me to give the most serious considera tion to their requests and during the past two weeks those interested have been in almost continuous conference at this office. “Premature publication was given these conferences and hence I feel it fair to those directly Interested and to the people of the state to declare the policy of this office in regard to the matter and to set at rest any contro versy or speculation which may have been caused by this premature publica tion. “On my advent to office I found that Governor Ammons had issued an exec utive order to the attorney general or dering the investigation and prosecu tion of all violations of the law grow ing out of the coal strike then in progress. “Following that order the attorney general, the grand Juries of four dif ferent counties and several district at torneys piade investigations, heard complaints of all who had complaints to make ani\ would appear before thefn, and as a result the indictments in question w-ere presented. “I know of no reason for disregard ing or belittling the Judgment of these officials and grand Juries and contin ued the order made by Governor Am mons. “The thought of this vexatious after math of conditions, in no wise created by this administration, continuing to take the time and energies of myself and other state officials, was not a pleasant one and if continuing this or der could have been avoided honorably certainly it would have been done. “Events since th«* time have not changed my opinion and I do not feel that I can now order the annulment of these prosecutions. They were instituted in good faith and upon evidence suffi ciently convincing to the attorney gen eral, grand Juries and the different district attorneys to warrant bring ing these defendants to trial. ‘‘This is from a legal standpoint. However, these already re ferred to, have urged my interference upon what might be called extra-legal grounds.*- “Considerations of so-called peace, mercy and business have been urged as a Justification for the action which it was hoped I would take. To find answer to these arguments I do not desire to review the history of the 3trike and the terrible nature of the crimes committed for which the de fendants now stand under indictment and trial. “It will be sufficient to remind our sitizens that state sovereignty was lost and that federal troops were sent here to protect the state from organized lawlessness. “These indictments will be subject to the double check of Juries, troal and re view courts, and any innocent among those charged with guilt will receive vindication. “The only question for me w'as to decide whether or not those who were legally charged with crime should be turned loose without trial for those extra-legal reasons given. “It has been asserted that such a course would put an end to the agita tion that is going on in certain quar ters, and leave this state in a more peaceful condition. “Granting that such a result would follow, it is in effect to say that a group of persons can commit any crime and receive immunity if they raise suf ficient agitation to disturb our peace of mind. I do not believe that our citi zens are willing to purchase mental peace at such a price. “It has been said that it would be the merciful thing to do—and yet as justice should be tempered with mercy so should mercy be tempered with Jus tice, and what Justice has been done society if those charged with murder and arson are allowed to go free with out trial? “The wholesale character of these crimes does not deprive them of their criminality; instead, it increases the offense because it increases the danger to society. “I w'as elected upon a platform which, among other things, promised to restore the state sovereignty upon -& firm basis. “In my belief, the only way this can be done is to punish any person or per sons who attack that sovereignty. “I cannot see any deterrent of fu ture crimes of the same nature if those of the past are to be condoned and for gotten. "It has been urged that so long as these cases are pending business will be stagnant and that foreign capital will not come into the state. “In my opinion, capital never will in vest in this state until it is demon strated that attacks upon life and prop erty will not be tolerated and this can not be demonstrated by turning loose persons charged with such crimes.' Pail for John R. Lawton. Denver.—John R. Lawson, national board member for Colorado of the United Mine Workers, and leader o( the recent coal strike, who is in Jail at Trinidad, under sentence of life im prisonment, will be released upon bail bond of $35,000.

"Yes, sir,” instantly exclaimed a raw recruit; “the beef an’ bacon in this ere Irish 'ash ain't fit for the likes of us to eat, an’ I wish to report it." The doctor was sent for to inspect the food. "So you think this meat isn't fit for a man in your position to eat?” said he. “Allow me to tell you that greater men than ever you will be have eaten it. Even the commander in chief wasn’t above eating it in the Crimea, and made many a hearty meal of it." "Oh, did ’e?” said our over-nice re cruit.
