This stand of the government
has particular reference to vio-
lations of the interna levenue
laws in ">lry" country, where lo-
cal enactments pvuhtbit dialing
in liquor. Loud complaints had
come to Pr sident Taft from va-
rious "dry" districts, notably in
the south ?nd west, that the pro-
hibition laws were negatived
through the operations of the
"blind tigers" and the bootleg-
gers" and in response to de- j
mands for remedial measures he,
directed that steps be taken to
stop the practice so far as lay •
within the federal power.
New regulations were drawn
under thesupervision of Mr. Ga
bell, commissioner of internal
revenue, and approved by Secre
Ury £ acVeagh today. They
set out that as the peddling of
liquors is not contemplated by
the internal revenue laws and no
provision is made for the issu-
ance of any stamp legalizing such
practice, peddlers of liquors, or
"bootleggers" are not to be re-
garded as coming within the
class of unintentional'violaio i.s
and should b arrested and re-
named ecclesiastical organiza-
tions. It may be al I right for
the Doctor to shovel out such rot
in his little-parish in Ohio, nut
the people of this country don't
w.i I 10 hear it, even from the
, n of Washington.

The Doctor says, with a con

egotism: "The Koman Catholic,
Episcopal and Jewish churches

majority, both of laity and cler-

This observation will have little

Frank Moore who lives on Tur-
key Creek took unto himself a
wife last Sunday According to
an old heathen custom the uoys

proceeded to make the ight hid-

bridi groom seriously objected
to having nis peaceful siurnbers
disturbed in any such manner,
and made his objections more
impressive with a shot gun.
uan Earl happened to be within
danger zone and received the
benefit of the whole charge. AH
