Fort Smith, Jan. 9.—Terrorism by moonshiners and bootleggers who threaten men's lives and property to insure silence, and a laxity of the citi zenship which is evidenced by a bom soon as men are convicted, are serious difficulties in the way of enforcement of the national prohibition laws. Judge Frank A. Youmans told tlie Federal Grand Jury in his charge delivered this morning. | "1 get reports from certain sections of the county," the judge said, "that men are afraid to tell what they know, for fear their fences will be burned, their stock shot, their barns destroyed and themselves murdered. Threats and intimidation, a sort of terrorism, are being used by the moonshiners and • bootleggers to protect themselves. | "The attitude of the public is pecu liar. As soon as a man is convicted, the governor or the president is bom barded with petitions for his pardon. Recently I saw a petition for a man's pardon, the first paragraph of which stated that ‘we have doubts ns to his guilt.’ That man had been convicted . , by a trial jury and his case had boon ] affirmed by the ajjellate court. Only one of the 60 or more signers of that j petition had heard the evidence in t lie ease. That sort of laxity is responsible for this situation, and this business of threatening the people needs atten tion.” Judge Youmans also read sections of the law covering intimidation of witnesses, which provides fines up to $6,000 and imprisonment up to live years or both. "I think,” tlie said, "you’ll have some instances of that kind to investigate." Sixty-four charges of violating the national prohibition act are scheduled for trial this week. Most of the de fendants are expected to plead guilty, it was said, as confessions have been obtained by John T. Tisdale, prohibi tion enforcement officer, arid assistants from many of them.
