Of all the pleasures which nature
has given man the power to enjoy
the keenest, is that derived from fair
contest, lo the winner in any fan
rivalry where wit is pitted against
wit, effort against effort, endurance
against endurance, there is a .satis
faction not to befound in any other
pleasure, The sense of superiority
thus acquired is the only sense ol
superiority that is laudable and
bears no resemblance to vanity
which is engendered by wealth ot
mere success of physical strength ot
charm. The loser in a fair contest
is yet winner by the mental develop
ment acquired through contesting
gallantly against keen opposition.
To the winners in this popularity
contest the pleasure of the strife
will be equal to the magnificence of
the prizes.

Prohibitionists Allege State and Mu
nicipal Officers Refused to
Enforce Law.
Memphis, Tenn. Aid of the Federal
courts was successfully invoked by
the Law and Order League to en
force the prohibition law which the
city, county and state authorities have
not enforced in Meinunis." United
States Judge McCall granted a tem
porary order against 114 saloons,
pending a hearing, restraining them
from serving intoxicating liquor.
lhe Federal court took jurisdiction
on the allegations of the petitioners
that were deprived of the equal pro
tection under the law guaranteed by
the fourteenth amendment to the con
stitution. They allege that the state
prohibition law is being enforced in
other parts of the state, but the gov
ernor. attorney general and county at
torney general, with other officials,
have refused to enforced the law here,
and, therefore, the United States court
can take jurisdiction.
On the grounds that irreparable in
jury might be done the complainants
if delay were permitted, Judge McCall
granted the temporary injunction.
The action, which was a total sur
prise to the saloons and the local op
tionists, was the culmination of a
long and bitter right to enforce pro
uibition in Memphis, the largest city
in which it has ever been tried.
The state-wide law passed in the
Fliring of 1909, and was supposed to
go into effect on July 1 of that year.
It was partially enforced for a time
in Knoxville, but in Memphis, situ
ated on the river and practically the
metropolis of three states Tennes
see, Arkansas and Mississippithere
lias never been any more serious ef
fort to enforce prohibition than the
presentation of evidence to the grand
The body regularly failed to indict,
and the city and county officials have
acknowledged the impossibility of
closing the saloons.
The Law and Order League has
been making a campaign for law en
forcement, and the present political
campaign, which is now on in Ten
see, has prohibition ngain as its prin
cipal issue.
Philadelphia American League Defeats
Chicago National Team.
Chicago. The baseball champion
ship of the world belongs to the
Philadelphia ciub of the American
League. They clinched the big prize.
Five games were played, and the
eastern youngsters took four of them
by outbatting, outflelding and outrush
ing the veteran Chnagoans. They "got
the jump'' at the start by wiuniug tht
first three games, and although Chi
cago punctuated their progress with
one defeat, it really didu t change the
situation a bit.
While the series was not the most
profitable ever played, it helps to
simplify the high cost of living prob
lem confronting even such heroes as
the Phlladelphians, to say nothing of
the Chlcagoans, with winter coming
on, The players' share of the money
amounts to $79,071.93. Of this 60 per
cent., or $47,443.13, goes to the win
ueis, and ?31,li2S.77 to the losers. As
there are twenty-three players on each
team eligible to participate, each of
the PhlladelphlaB is entitled in round
numbers to 2,0ti2. and each Chicago
an to $1,375.
The total receipts for the series
were $173,980. The two clubs share
$3s,755 apiece, while $17,399 goes to
the national commission.
The total paid attendance was 125,
219 persons.
