Banquet Notes.
It was a gllttarlng success from
start to finish, and best of all every
body entered Into the spirit of the
occasion. The railroad men especial
ly were pleased with their reception
and were not slow to say bo. They

was lucid, and he presented some

presentation of the caie of the rail

greeted his declaration that the O. R.

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

called on his Fr.nch friend "Mike"

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.
