Form of Crime. , The Commercial is not one of those who pius much faith in crusades or mar tyrdom for the sake of a single reforma tion to the exclusion of every other great moral or political principle, but how sensible men and newspapers can hold on to the defense of the saloon in the face of the fact that it is losing its best support every day is more than we can tell. Henry Watterson, the greatest champion of the saloon, who has written volumes on the subject, would never ad mit that the issue was something more than sumptuary legislation, and on that ground he held that Prohibition was un democratic and contrary to the princi ples of American liberty. The fact is that the saloon license is a recognition of the worst element of crime. The sa loon is' not only the accomplice of every other form of vice, but it harbors the criminal. This, of course, will find a ready retort from the saloon advocates, but one thing they cannot derif , and that is that whisky is adulterated until it becomos one of the vilest of beverages. Much of the stuff is prepared in the sa loon basement, and to say that a very email percentage is distilled can be borne out by the facts. The brand of whisky that comes to the dry territory especially is a foul mixture, and the man who drinks it has very little regard either for his stomach or conduct. The man who iakes it should be held guilty of a rcrirainal act. Why the Government ,will continue to license the sale of such .-stuff is incomprehensible; why the pure drugs law is not made to compass it is. tbeyriid our understanding. To say that legislation on the subject is merely sumptuary is a travesty on human in telligence. The Woman Criminal. There Is scheduled for next March in "Connecticut the first execution of a wo man criminal since 179G. The Woman's Political Equality Club of New Haven Vis circulating a petition for the commu tation of the sentence. The murder seems to have been peculiarly indefen sible. , The woman, with the aid of a man, killed her husband. The man in the case turned State's evidence. For a anurdor based upon similar motives a young man in Richmond was executed a short time ago. The verdict of the jury and the firmness of the Governor ot Virginia were universally commend ed. The woman's rigbtcrg are complaiu ing about the Firmnww of the Governor of Connecticut, who declines to inter fere. Men have always been averse to ex acting the extreme penalty where the criminal is a woman. The only ground upon which unwillingness to hang a wo man criminal for murder can be basea, by persons who are not in favor of the abolition of capital punishment, that ihnm is a difference between the sexes in the matter of moral responsibility, just a thpre is a difference between a man rl a child. It them is equality be tween the sexes thera i 6o reason, why there should be any difference between the degree ot punishment meted out to a man who ki'ls another than that in flicted upon a woman equally guilty. Some of the Connecticut women are quoted as saying that if women bad their political rights capital punishment would be abandoned, but their protest in this case seems to be against the in fliction of the death penalty upon a wo man, rather than against the death pen alty itself. No similar agitation has followed the conviction of a man.- Louisville Courier-Journal. CONFEBEKCE APPOINTMENTS Many unexpected changes were made in tqe appointments.
