There were 249 murders in New York last year. Only sixty-five arrests fol lowed the commission of those crimes and only two of the criminals went to the electric chair. Using the argument of the liquor dealers, we might say that the law against murder does .not I'prohibit. Murder will be committed anyway and we might as well regulate it. Look at the revenue we would get from it and then we might provide that no murder be committed between mid night and 5 in the morning or on the Sabbath and there would be no "speak easy" murderers as there are now. Then there is another crime' that is very, very prevalent wherever the sa lcons exist, that of wife beating. We might issue licenses to v.ife beaters and gain considerable revenue. If we can license one evil, why not license all? Would it not be Just as sane to license wife beaters and murderers as to license the factories that produce wife beaters and murderers " -are at present, tn licensing the sa- : loon? ! ine so-called necessary evils are ; necessary only eo Ions' as the people wish to tolerate them. The saloon as it exists to-day is a positive nuisance. It is a menace to public health, public peace and public morality and it exists because of the mistaken Idea that it helps pay taxes. The fact of the mat ter is that for every dollar that we re ceive in the yay of license fcs we are paying $20 to care for the product of the saloon. But if it were true that we benefited by the whole amount paid by the liquor dealers of the state !t would amount to only SO cents per cap ita per year for the population of the state of Connecticut. So that the citi zens of this state are selling their peace and happiness for 30 cents per capita per year. Judas got thirty pieces of silver, but we citizens of the Nutmeg state get but 30 cents. It is a pretty small bribe, is it not? They tell us that we can not make men moral by law. We are not trying to, but we most seriously protest against the state piakin itself and its fPr r n w One Blended Squirrel Set, animal effect, that was 75.00.

Wo 'are told that we can not inter fere with the personal liberty of m,en to eat and drink what they wish. When congress passed a pure food law pro hibiting the sale of impure food and tainted beef, where were these cham pions of personal liberty? Has not a man the right to eat tainted beet if lie wishes? Just as much as ho has to drlng intoxicating liquors? I suppose the primitive man thought it was an interference with his personal liberty to tay that he should not roam about this earth without clothes. ' He proba bly protested against the wearms of a breach cloth, but in some way lie was made to see that his liberty was cir cumscribed by the duty he owed to po ciety and from that breach cloth has been developed the dude of to-day. Had the argument against the inter ference with personal liberty as made by primitive man succeeded clothes would not now be worn. It has been so through all has", our liberties have been encroached up on in the interest of public health, pub c peace and public safety and morality from time to time Rnd th. only one that to-day claims Ms rights are greater than the rights of socle y aVa whole Is the man engaged in tne 'TtttoW of the regeneration of Bridgeport and the remarkable change that has occurred in that citv. once dominated by the llor jnci i to law enforcing citv and ft id that during the past week as a lesnlt of law enforcement and the closing of the nnns that raneu iu lived those saloons have left the stale two crnro (it women who ps Change from coffee to l'ou'll know "There's a Reason." j j PUS I fill (-onnrctieut. lie said waaji I sta ll with this work in Bridgeport I jU that the odds were too greut to 'iH'cuir.e and tluit it would Lie impps- .lide to c.'juu up Bridgeport, it nus kb detnonstrat-cJ even to the saii-.s-.a.-rjion of the most chronic violators of .lie law that with a man behind the law . t c:an be t-nt'orced.' He further said "if the Christians of .hi:; state wish it and use their suf- r.-igu intelligently we can liavo a pro hibition law enacted by the next sos .ion of the general assembly in Con necticut.

They forget that even n ha cities that it is possible to elect enators favorable to prohibition.

MONEY NEEDED FOR WORK Bishop Van Buren Asks That Two Thousand Dollars he Sub scribed Locally. Bishop Van Buren of Porto Rico, made a stirring appeal at Trinity church, yesterday morning in behalf of tne islanders who have but lately come under the stars and stripes ana who are as well his special charge. A driz zling, sloppy morning did much to keep many a--'ay from the church andv f rom hearing the bishop, who is an occasion al visitor at. the church, yet the church was well tilled in spite of the incle ment conditions. Perhaps the most -interesting portion of the bishop's account of his work on the island of Porto Rico was that which dealed with the leper colony which is situated on a small island, called Goat Island, directly off tha harbor of San Juan. In an uncom promising way the bishop described the awful features of the dread disease of lepiosy; how the hands, tho feet and the, different parts of the body dropped off one by one. But all this, ho said, wa3 by no means to be counted as the worst that these 'ioor unfortunates had to endure. Ther was the loncsofneriess of it all. the dread cry of "Unclean, unclean," of vvhU'h'we read in Ben Hur, which must always separate them nut only from all men a? well as from their kith and kin. 'Bishop Van Buren told of one poor woman, a leper, who was only al lowed to see her husband once a month and that only at a speaking distance for fear lie would take the disease him self. Bishop Van Buren said he had him self been to tha Island to preach sever al times. Then, he said, he had had to wear antiseptic rubes and to wash his hands afterwards in antiseptic wa ter. He told ot the awful life that the lepers had been compelled to live on Goat Island until the Episcopal church had begun its efforts there under tho bishop's direction. Even fruits, whicn ordinarily could be had for tho asking in Porto Rico they had not had, sim ply because everybody had forgotten them. When the biohap's assistant, '"v. Mr. Mitchell, went to tho island as the first missionary, one of his first deeds o thcuffhtfulncss, said the bish op, was to take the lepors huge bas kets fuw. of fruit. Another thing which he did was to take them a phonograph and their joy and laughter was . unbounded when they Ifcard anew from the machine the iear, old sontrs that they had sung in the days of their youth bel'jro the dread disease had come to them. 'The bishop said these lepers are anionp: the most enthusiastic cel;bra toTi of the Fourth of July arnpnj the new subjects oi the United State'') In Porto Rico. On the Fourth of July they always elect a president, for they have a1 sort of little government of 'heir own. "Last Fourth," said the bls hopfl In a taeitious vein, "they elected the sanv man president for the third time. Evidently they do not think there is a hoodoo about tho Idea of a third term." Bishop Van Buren described the oth er a-cnucs of work in his diocese, a hospital, but recently erected1, had cost aKout $34,000. Some $4,000 was still, needed to. "ay for It, ha said, but ha had every reason to believe the requir ed amount would be forthcoming irom another source. . The bishop made a straight appeal to the people of Trinity parish, old and young, in behalf cf A. little church, i.tarted a year and a half ago near San Juan, where go both EnglisK-speaklng blacks and Spanish-speaking whites. In connection with tho church the rector has been conducting a school in tho basement of his bouse where fifty chil dren could comfortably, be, accommo dated, but where 100 have been crowd ed in. Ho told a nathetic little story about the little frirls and boys who had come to school every day, begging for an ed ucation. ' Tie- said the need was urgent for a new church building, where a school ml Tlit be located, and he appeal ed to thtTpeople of Trinity church for fundi.' The new building, ns planned, will cost $15,000. Seven thousand dollars has already been raised. S500 have been I promised by the American Episcopal charm ps a whole and lie wished Trin- i t v to do as much aa It could to meet' the fund of $2,000 still required'.
