Trade In Deadly Drug.
After a long battle tbo pure food law
b on trial, and, whllo Its efTectlvcneix
la yet to la) proved, public opinion sus
tains It as a Jnst measure and one that
shonld bo n mended until It Is thorough
ly effective. Recent reports as to the
ve of opium and cocaine In this coun
try Indicate there Is also abnndant
missionary work to lx done In eradi
cating banefnl habits, which are of
comparatively recent modem develop
ment here, by regulating and restrict
ing the trade In drugs which foster
them. It U now declared that the Im
portation of smoking opium Into this
country has Increased over 250 per
cent tie last thirty years notwith
standing that our Chinese population
has decreased during that time. The
Importations were greater In the four
years from 1003 to 1007 by nearly a
million pounds than during the four
years immediately preceding. Statis
tics gatlicred in our great cities show
that there are ten white smokers of
opium to one Celestial given to thlt
habit Only 25 per cent of the products
derived from opium nro devoted to
legitimate Hes. rhyalclans report a
dangerous Increase In the use of the
drug by nerve wom men nnd women
who prefer It lo tnltsccn or alcohol.
Tho showing as to the Illegitimate
use of cocaine Is also startling. Re
cently the secretary of the New York
Medical society declared that unprinci
pled physicians foster the cocaine hale
It, knnulug that It lends to divers
physical Ills and hence lncrefl'ics their
calls from this !.ih of patients. This
Is a horrible charge, but there Is little
room to doubt that physicians nre
sometimes too ready to prescribe In
emergencies drugs that nro liable to
fusteti habits upon their users. The
ue of Apparently harmless drugi
makes the step easy to morphine and
cocaine. Stricter surveillance over the
retailers of drugs might check the re
sort to habit forming drugs by Uie
weak or the unwary. Some drugs nre
peculiarly tempting for those who sock
a present good nnd nre Indifferent to
future rvenlts. Sufferers nre often
unaware that some favorite remedy to
which they resort liecnuse It Is cheap
or agreeable contains a dangerous cle
incut All goes well until the habit !s
formed, nnd then warning conies too
late. The only safe wny to escape
wreckage of nerves and will throne'
ho drug habit Is to aold the step that
costs nnd not be misled by rellan, r
upon the so railed drug habit nntldnto
often only a swapping of evils.

Albany, N. Y., Aug. 23. Richard L.
Hand of Elltabethtown, who was np
Ktnted by Governor Hughes to take
testimony and report his findings upon
the charges filed against District At-
irncy William Travers Jerome of New
York county by a minority stockhold
ers' committee of the Metropolitan
Street Hallway company. In a report
submitted to tho governor decides that
not oue of the series of charges Is
proved and declares that all are dls
proved UHin tho evidence.
He recommends the dismissal of the
charges. A demand had been made
for Mr Jerotnu's removal.
Governor Hughes has not as yet act
ed uiion Commissioner Hand's report.
"My conviction upon the whole case.
says the report, "Is that the respondent
has been shown to have discharged the
onerous duties of his ofllce with zeal
and ability, having the public good as
bis motive, anil that no Incapacity, In
difference or neglect of duty has been
shown In auj' case."
Tho I'Oinmlsvloner sustains the con
ntlons of IHstrlrt Attornev Jerome
In evety charge, stating at tho conclu
sion of many of them that be could
find no neglect on the part of tho dis
trict attorney or any good reason
other or further action man that wuicit
was taken bj him. The charges in the
main accused the district nttorney of
alleged neglect of duty In not suffi
ciently prosecuting alleged fraudulent
acts of tho Metropolitan street and
other railway companies of New York
nnd also of the Insurance compaules
as developed by the legislative Insur
ance Investigation. Ono of tho charges
alleged misconduct on the part of the
llstrlct attorney In shaking dice in a
restaurant In Now York city On this
charge the commissioner says that, al
though the net Itself Is not criminal,
permitting It on the part of the ier-
sous lleoned-that Is, the proprietor ot
the roatuurant -la a crime. The com
missioner holds tlut there was no evi
dence Hint the proprietor know that act
was committed and that to hold bin
criminally liable would lie an absurd
perversion of the object of the law nnd
straining of Its language.
In his conclusions Mr. Hand
"What Information this commute,
may claim to hsvo had as lo the con
duct of t lie district al toritey. upon which
they have assumed to make these sorl
ons charges of Improper motive, abject
veneration of mere money and the pos.
sessors of money, neglect of duly, offi
cial misconduct, conspiring wlib crimi
nals, throttling prosecutions and de
feating Justice wo can only Infer from
the fact that Its chairman mid socio
tary encode their utter Ignorance and
seem to have signed such charges as
the counsel ssw lit to prepare without
real know ledge even of the content of
such charges mid In absolute Ignorance
ns to their truth or falsehood, and the
counsel himself Is forced to udmlt that
ho bad no greater knowledge or Infor

Reports of the doings of women

Every aggregation of women where
