CO. Open Sat. Fve. BRANFORD UNDER NO-LICENSE LAW ( C.in 1 1 n u oil from First Page.) I tnkd pnlns to have tho packages dis guised. ; Thn remaining way In which liquor Ib brought Into the town, by thn cnn I sinners thriniHolvcs, opens a much i linger question anil Is tho source of ! mui'li of tbo dissatisfaction which Is I expressed wit h the working nf tbo law. j That men do go out of Branfnrd to a j greater or less extent, for alcohol Is ae- knowledgod -by nearly everyone, but there Is a large difference of opinion as to how niueh of thl.s Is done. Tho license district nearest to Tlran ford Is that part of the town known as Ptony Creek, and In tho other direc tion New Ha.ven Is the nearest place to obtain liquor, both within easy riding distance by trolley. At this point ap pears a great difference of opinion, one party claiming (lint there Is no morn than tho usual traflle In either direc tion while the other claims that the lain cars into thn town are filled with men in all stages of Intoxication and carrying various amounts of Intoxi cants In bags and suit cnse.s. Both of these statements are exaggerations. It Is undoubtedly true that thero Is more travel to Ptony Creek than usual nt thl.s time of the year and that the late cars from that place and New Haven do bring back numbers of men who have been to those two places for 11- nii'ir. Thero aro hound to be men who are. willing to go to quite a bit of Iron hie to get their usual beverages and It ! is nretty certain that many of the packages carried on those cars contain liquor of one sort or another. In sup j port of this, it Is known that the sn i loons of Stony Creek are doing an un ! usually large business and that Uran- i ford men are drinking there and buy ! ing Intoxicants for homo consumption. Thl.s lends up to the statement of the saloon men that tho bottle In the pock et Is having o most demoralizing Influ ence in the town. They base their statements somewhat logically n thU manner; that where a man would or dlnarlly take a drink of beer, that li quid Is too bulky to be easily transport ed and fo they now drink whlrkey and other more harmful liquors in its place They further say that where a man used to behave himself and drink a small quantity In a saloon, he now gathers with a few kindred spirits and has a reirnlar debauch. Likewise that a youth who Is Just beginning to drink will now learn to drink the morn harm ful beverages, cine man went so far in expounding the evil effects of the closed saloons as to say that If Fritz Strohei had been nbln to secure his li quor In 1 Iran ford be would not have gonet. to Stony Creek nnd been killed by the cars on his return. The answer of the temperance peo ple to these arguments Is that where it. Is dilllctilt to obtain liquor there will he much lejes of it used and conse quently less temptation, especially to young boys. While It. may be true that some formerly light drinkers now use morn harmful Intoxicants. It Is also true that several formerly hard drink er have lately entirely cease, l drink ing. It is very hard (o say whether there Is really less drhtiUenneis hero than formerly, but. it can safely bo aald that thero j !,-. open drunkenness nnd rowdyism. Them Is certainly none In the raloons, which was largely the original cause of complaint, and so what there Is on the streets Is proba bly the largest part of what there Is In the town, fif course, It is Impossi ble to a-certain the extent of diink i'U,' which is done privately, but the no-license party would seem to be to a certain extent backed by the facts In their statement (hat the moral tone of the town has Improved At the same j lime the statements of some of thn I leaders of the temperance movement 4, tliai me town nas acquire, i nn iiiiiune ? ly hlpher moral tone and that drunk J ennei.n and rowdyism have been rednc- T . . i 1.,. 0,1. .11.. ,1, P, 1! H IDllOllllllll, I T' loeoiuoieui nir j result of tht-ir wishes rather than llm I fruit of their calm, Impartial Judgment, 'particularly ns no town can be reform ed and made over In a month. An Impartial summary of the situa tion, jewed from tho point of order and morality, would have to grant much to the arguments of both sides. While It Is true that somn men have stopped drinking, it Is also trim that other drink morn viciously than be fore the saloons wero closed. Hut on the whole, Impartial spectators nren that the tone of the town is better than It was. The point In which the situation affects the people of Uranford most vltnlly, except the radicals on tho two sides, Is whether no-lleense Is hurting the town In a business way. Again on this point the extremes of opinion inimt he discounted. In the first place it may be snld here that tho extra tax which lnifl re cently been levied was not made necessary by the loss of the lleenso fees, but Ih for the purpose of build ing a new schoolhouse at Short. J'teneh. The. advocates of license claim that the men who find that they must go Into New Haven for their lluuor, also make their purchases there, thus tak ing much of the trade away from the Bra ii ford merchants. Some of the merchants, notably those who deal In these commodities not generally class ed as the necessaries of life, state that this Is true and that tliera has been an appreciable fulling off in their trade, dining the Inst month. This seems very probable, as a certain number of men do go out. of town, es pecially on pay day. for liquor, and would naturally make their other pur chases at thn sumo time. Then, too, It Is claimed that some families have begun to patronize New Haven gro cers who will deliver liquors. One of the local grocers confessed that he had recently lost a few customers, Delightful l,,'yo'"1 (,,mi",r" Post we st Crisp, llinoiy, delicious, golden brown corn llaUex. "Tha Taste Lingers." t'ostuin Cereal Company, Limited, Hal Me Crock, Mich. ttmmmmmmtmmmwmmmm'mmi but would not assign this ns the rea son. ' 9 to whether any of the more stapla tvado has been lout to the town, some of the largest merchants slate that their trade Is as large or larger lima while there were saloons here. Two or three of tins storekeepers say thai, women whose accounts have long been unpaid, have recently come In to tlielr places of business and made payments on their m mils, saying that they had more money for the household now that their husbands or sons cannot so easily secure liquor, l uu merchant emphatically denied that any trade was being lost, to New Haven, and tmld that on the contrary certain families now have more tnuiiey to spend. Another said that his busi ness Is ns good as ever, and that his customers now come In aober, It is only fair to the license parly to state that both of these, men are workers for uo-llceui-.e and further that. a. store keeper would be loth to confess Hint be Is losing any trade, whatever tho cause, From a. business point of view, then, It can be said t hat no-llecnse has had little effect one way or the oilier; and that what Influence It has enert ed on the situation about, balances for both sides. While Uranford has undoubtedly lost some bunlnens, as has been stated, and quite a bit of money Is being spent outside which formerly went. Into the local saloons, them Is an almost equal amount averted from liquor to household purchases and certain old accounts are being paid up. Hoth the license and no-llcensn parties, then, seem (o have morn or less ground for their opinions of thn working of tho new law. There Is little doubt but that, ns In most other similar rases, It works botli harm nnd good, fiomo of thn hltterest oppon ents of no-license say they woudl bo willing to havn such a law In effect did It cover a greater territory, but that since It covers only one town, near a larger license town, they ore strongly opposed to It. lloth parties also claim that they will carry thn town In their way next year, and that they will rae) have many of the votes which were this year cast for the other side, fio firm Is this conviction among the saloon men (hat they are keeping (heir places open, eking out a scant profit, from clears and soft drinks, rin the other hand, Itev. jir. Devltt, (he chief ex ponent nf no-license, says that bis party had thn votes of a number of drinking men this year, and when thn good effects nf the law are seen, they will havn morn next time. Mut the general opinion, even among thn no license men, seems to bn that Uran ford will go for license next year, but that the number of saloons which will lie licensed will bn tnueh less than heretofore and that the objectionable places will be cut out a proceeding which will have the support of thn better element among the saloon men. ftevernl of the most prominent men of both parties snld that the rial need Is not no-llcense, hut a uniformed po lice force, paid by thn day to keep order In the town. The average rowdy or drunk, say they, respects a uniform and th" police could keep disorder off the streets nnd force tho sulnnns to obey the letter and spirit of the law. IN PROBATE COURT Compromise In Mothtlm Fstnte A P- proved by Court. In the probate court yesterday af ternoon the compromise proposed by the widow of thn into Joseph P. Mc (lultd on the claim made by tho con servator for the son of tho dead man was approved. Thn widow offered to compromise the claim which was for over $4,000 for $ 1 . S u 0 nnd the case was taken to thn court for approval of tills settlement. The son Is Albert Wesley Medulro and thn claim for 111 m was made by bis conservator, lternard Lynch. The will of Michael OVarroll, which was tiled in the probate court yester day afternoon cuts off the two sons of I the deceased by express provision and leaves the estate with the exception of $1,01(0 to the two daughters, ICH.abetb ti'Cnrroll nnd Mamie Travis. The $1,000 exception Is made In favor of the widow. PLEASANT SURPRISE PARTY Mln Marguerite Connolly Fnterlalueil by Host of Friends.
