PROHIBITION THAT PROHIBITS. |
A jury at Okmulgee rendered j
a verdict of $3,000 against a citi-
zen whose building was used for
the sale of liquor in violation < f
4,ho law. If such a policy of pros
ccution is followed elsewhere
prohibition that prohibits may
vbe closely approximated. The
Saw is nor. defective anywhere in
the state; it's merely a matter
of local sentiment and inclination
of officials to do their duty-
The Oklahoman is correct.
And what is said of the prohibi
t«on law in the above can be said
every other law on ihe statute
/books. It was once a difficult
matter to enforce the law against
,horso stealing in certain conn-
ives in Texas. And trouble was
all in the juries and officials and
in the doctrine of future punish-
ment—not, however, in a literal
lake of material burnings, but
what is far worse,—a condition
of mental agony such as Dives
experienced, or the weary search
of the rich young ruler for his
lost opportuity, in the Inferno.
—Almost as bad, in fact, as we
would have if socialism were in
power. Now we've "dared."
Visitors to Hollis say that more

in any other town in th^so parts.

gave interesting if not valuable
testimony "before a conference
on public morals and means of

so ungallant as to say that
women write the greater num-
ber of books that are objection-
able a-s far as morality is con-
cerned, and that women are
more eager than men to hu.v

tioo. but one in fact; we believe Mr. John Murry, the
representative of a publishing
house long famous, insisted that
"noxious literature" included
other works than those of an
immoral or impure tendency.
He characterised as noxious
books that "express false and
perverted views en religloui
social questions and politics."
And he gave books that "ex pre
false perverted views on religion
social questions and politics."
And he gave t-hU as his reason:
Because people can bo seen
reading them without being put
to shame and ba muse reading of
them can talk about them open-1

Karl Marx and Nietzsche and
the doctrines they express ace

British empire, and they are
extremely n >xious. What a fine
old crusted Tory! Would we
have these bootts and others of a
politically liberal nature burnt
in a public square by the hang-
man? What a censor Mr. Mur-
ry would make! In comparison
with his views, those of Mr.
Anthony Comstock would be as
loose as ashes The world is
not informed as to whether Mr
Murray's remarks excited
laughter, or whether any one
reminded him that his house
was once censured for publish
