His trac ing of th genesis of "The Interests," was lucid, and he presented some new thoughts for hU hearers In hl3 presentation of the caie of the rail roads vs. commissions. Applause greeted his declaration that the O. R. & N. was not In politics and that it depended upon the people for fair play In the matter of regulation of rates. Mr. Cotton gave the "other side" In fair terms and won respect ful attention and hearty applause. This ended the program of an nounced toasts but Mr. Sheahan called on his Fr.nch friend "Mike" Buckley, who countered neatly and didn't have to make a speech at that.

Mr. O'Brien thai asked that the railroad men stand up and he led In Strict enforcement of tlio prohibi tion law was the keynote ot Judge Knowles1 charge to tho grand Jury, Monday. The law was adopted by a majority of the voters of this county and endorse! by a still larger major ity when re-subml ted last June, and should be enforced as Is any othoi law, says tho couit. Tha following grand Jury was swoni: J. M. casteel, Olof Anderson, B. F. Sargeunt, T. J. Dryden, G. W. Nell, Albert Wilson, D. D. Brock. Judge Knowles especially charged ihe Jury in regard to the local op tion law. He cited the fact of Its adoption by this county by a vote of j13 in favor to B32 ajalnst prohlbl Ion at the election in June, 190G, -nd Its resubmission- in June last, when the majority was 415. He then read Sections 15 and 17 of the local option law of 1905, which have here tofore been published In full by this paper. Concluding, the Court said: "As long as this law Is upon the statute book of tills state It should be enforced with the same rigor as any other law. If It Is a good law (and the people of this county seem '.o think it is by the Increased major ity they gave to prohibit ion at the last election) it should be enforced on account of the good Its enforce ment will do the community. Upon the other hand, if it Is a bad law, the best and quickest way to get rid of it Is to enforce it to tho letter." The grand Jury has boon in ses sion all week and has returned In dictments against Moxley and How ard and one or two others not made public. It Is expected to make final report today.
