(Continued from page one)
the comment on the news feature,
that “speakeasies” will no longer
have to worry about interference on
the part of the law, enforcement of-
ficers, the Journal essay# to show
that this is but another recognition
of the fallacy, and that arbitrary leg-
islation is apparent.
These so-called “speakeasies” have
flourished for years; the fact that
they have flourished carries with it
the significance that people, in all
walks of life, feel inclined to patron-
ize such places; further, the fact that
entrance is gained only upon the
recommendation from one who is
known to be a good sport—in the
general term—is also very outstand-
ing in its significance. Raids have
frequently occurred and some embar-
rassing situations have developed.
Hush money seems to have always
been plentiful and fictitious names
have been hurriedly concocted so that
the desk sergeant’s blotter—at the
station home—could not be inspected
with good results by the inquisitive
reporter who is ever looking for
something to please the readers of
hi? daily paper.
With the assurance that raids shall
and will cease, it is not unsound rea-
soning to state that these quiet
places, • where men were standing,
keeping a lookout, and the iron door
with its small opening through which
the applicant for admission was scru-
tinized to determine his “eligibility”
will change, albeit they will assume a
more bold form, and will instead of
quietly, now openly violate the law
over which there has been so much
discussion. Taking that for granted
as stated, the charge is stronger than
ever, that the law adopts the class
feature. This was to be expected.
Cities where these “speakeasies”
have done a good business, will have
an added attraction; whether this
bears well with the author of that
little sarcasm the Journal has given
in the second paragraph, is prob-
lematical; it appears, however, that
the enforcement of a law, in con-
formity of like matters that aggra-
vate, becomes more difficult because
of the adverse feeling created in the
mind of the general public. If it is
wrong to permit the transportation
of liquor, and the distillers, it is
wrong to operate a “speakeasy.”
Perhaps, and this is merely a sur-
mise, the chief exponent of the law
is adopting the old axiom, that it is
better to strike at the cause of the
disease, than the disease itself.
Which may mean something, at that.

Call Them Acts of Providence
Which Isn’t Had.
Japan was visited during the past
week by an earthquake; press dis-
patches placed the number of dead
and homeless at a high guage, nu-
merically; last Thursday, fire of an
unknown origin caused bank robbers
busy at Leonard, Texas, to abandon
their nefarious practice, drop their
acetylene torch at the safe they were
seeking to enter, and leave the bank
Whatever the casual man of gentle
remarks may decide on this, is imma-
terial. There is an old saying that
“it is an ill wind that blows nobody
good” and it may be applied in these
Opposition to the agressive man-
ner in which the wiley Jap is carry-
ing on his friendly (?) incursions
into the Chinese territory, by the
League of Nations, hns had no ma-
terial effect on the Japanese army*,
if the Chinese are not able to check
the aggressiveenss mentioned, great-
er powers have to make a play. The
memory of the Jap will have to be
revived. The world was good to the
little brown men when a previous
earthquake rendered thousands home-
less; Japan is now showing her ap-
preciation by sacrificing the lives of
thousands of the Chinese.
That old vacant building at Leon-
ard may not need to have been partly
destroyed by fire; think, however, of
the damage to that bank, by the
torch, explosion and robbery. Skit-
tish robbers have their day of “lost
Yes, these two may have been an
act of Providence; and if so, how
NEW AGENT AT S. P.
A. Pierce, coming from Fort Stock-
ton, arrived here last Saturday and
“bumped” E. E. Carle.e, until then in
charge of the S. P. railway station.
Mr. Carlee had been here for about
one year, and in that period of time,
made many friends, and managed to
get a good amount of business for his
company. He has not decided as to
his new location. Mr. Pierce is wel-
comed to LaGrange, but the Journal
hesitates not to state that the depar-
ture of Mr. Carlee will be regretted.

player, and a good one at that), did
not say a word to his friends last
Saturday, but drove his car to Fay-
etteville where he visited briefly at
the home of Mr. and Mrs. J. R. Ku-
bena, and then, with their daughter,
Miss Anita, left without telling of
their mission. These young folks are
Straight through LaGrange and on
to Smithville where Rev. H. H. Bain,
pastor of the Methodist church per-

friends here, and are popular with
our young people. Edgar is a son of
Mr. and Mrs. Geo. Rosenberg.
