Model License League Considers Sa loons the Lesser Evil. "Local option is brought into dis- f repute by the fact that prohibition drives the law-abiding man out of the liquor business and then offers large profits to law breakers." This is the opinion expressed by the National Model License league, in a letter to the University Missourian, answering a recent interview with Judge J. A. Stewart. Judge Stewart said there was an organized movement among the liquor men to bring local option into disrepute by making as many men drunk as possible. According to the National Model Li cense league, more than twenty gal lons per capita of wine, beer, whisky and liquors are consumed in the United States annually. This, it main tains, shows there is no tendency on the part of the people to gie up their legal right to use liquor. The solution of the liquor question offered by the license league is to put the saloons under the control of a non-political licensing board which would hae the power of annulling a license immediately upon the letailer's breaking the law. This board would also have the power of suspending the license of a saloon for thirty days upon the first violation of the law, and ot cancelling the license entirely upon a second conviction. The league be- lices one saloon for each 500 inhabi tants should be allowed.

Blind For 22 Years He ls One of America's Greatest Journalists. Stricken blind at the threshold ot his career, Joseph Pulitzer has comv down through the past 22 years, chal lenging his darkness, snatching suc cess and riches where men with eyes saw them not, and creating and direct ing newspaper institutions of national influence. Whatever he has decided he would do, his has been the domi nant mind in the doing. He conceived the building of the World's home in Park Row as something to overreacn eery structure in the world "the building with the gilded dome" which he was doomed never to see. "I want the tallest building on earth," said he, and so it was reared, his delicate fingers following the con struction with blocks as a child sets up a toy house. As he directed the structure of that pioneer of skyscrap ers, which remained until a few years ago "the tallest building on earth," so he has projected out of his darkness his family home in New York and the yacht on which he roams the world. Joseph Pulitzer's whole life has been ordered in lines of the most tremend ous dramatic effects. Even the ter rible affliction of blindness must needs have a setting in keeping with the ruling scheme. He enslaved himself to the World's success, burning the candle at both ends, until shattered, raw nerves and a persistent mist be fore his pale blue-gray eyes drove him to seek rest in a yachting cruise. One evening just before sunset, as his vessel was standing out of the Bos phorus, and the Black Sea loomed full ahead, the blow fell. He was at the rail reading when he was plunged into darkness. "Has the sun set so soon?" he asked, o.uerulously. "Not jet," answered a companion. "It has," was his astound ing rejoinder. "Please take me below and tell the captain to put about." Mr. Puliszer's blindness has compelled him to withdraw behind the scenes ot public life. He has hidden himselt and sunk his identity m his papers, and particularly in the World. There are few today who read his signed editorial broadsides, gadtlying a pres ident or whaling a state or municipal administration, who can visualize the producing force.
