The Liquor Flurry.
Monday was the day fixed for the hear
ing of the rale on the hotel keepers of
Butler to show cause why their licences
should not be revoked on account of their
gelling liquor to Daniel Moore, a stranger
who work-jd on the Water Co'a pipe line
here, and who got drunk some days ago,
:»nd raised a row in Brandon's office; and
almost every seat in the court room was
crowded that morning to hear the case.
Judge Greer opened his case by reading
a lot of license law, and lecturing the con
stables. Tuen he called W. I>. Brandon,
A. M. Cornelius, Policeman Skillman and
Constable Knittle an.l heard their stories
of the fuss Moore came next and his
atery was listened to attentively. He
came to town that morning and got his
uiou.y, then he took two drinksof whisky
ai i he Lowrj -House; tiieu he met a couple
of men who h»'l a cjnart bottle of alcohol
and went with them in:o au altey where

After di'iaer the druggists of the town,
who had bttn jubp: euaed at the instance
« f the hotel keeper-. and required to bring
their liquor prescriptions since April Ist.
last, with them were placed on the stand,
Charley Harvey, clerk at Dan Wuiler's,
presented 179 liquor prescriptions, filled
since Sept. 15th, last, the day on which
he took charge of the store, and of these
134 were signed by Dr. Bricker and identi
fied by him. Some of these prescriptions
were to William Mortimer, said to be a
man of intemperate habits; though as there
are two men of that name living in Butler
we do not know which one was referred to.
After hearing this evidence Judge Greer
ordered the arrest and prosecution of Dr.
Bricker, and ordered the County Detective
to make information against him, which
was worded by the District Attorney as
follows; Com. vs McCurdy Bricker, etc,
"unlawfully did prescribe intoxicating li

The Crystal Pharmacy had filled 244
prescriptions lor alcoholic preparations
since April Ist, last, a former clerk and a
travelling salesman gave some damaging
evidence against the store, and Judge
Greor ordered Dr. Johnston to be prosecut
ed. The information as worded by the
District Attorney and sworn to by the
County Detective, charges him with selling
spiritious, vinous, malt and brewed liquors
and adminixtures thereof, without first
haviug obtained a license so to do, and
did during the last rear past, furnish by
sale, gift and otherwise, spintous, vinous,

> ."*- s is one of the few
really great plays contributed to this stage
by any Modern dramatist. It is high class
melodrama of the intensely emotional sort,
abounding in striking characters, strong
situations and pungant dialogue, and ad
mitting of il&borate embellishments in
scenery and costumes. Its scheme is a
daring one but it is handled with such
delicacy that it may bo salely and proper
ly witnessed by any child. To the older
mind, however, it affords many sugges
tions that may be oonsidered of the moral
profit. The author has brought out in
vivid colors the dangers that beset young
womanhood and the excuses by which sin
ful man seeks to justify his couduct to
ward the opposite sex. Some of the scenes
between "the woman in the case" and
'•the mau in the case" are as fine exam
ples of passionate declamation ac the stajje
has produced since the days of tiie clasic
Rosamond, born into this world without
parentage, struggling to rescuo her own
name from dishonor, taunted with tho
my story of her birth by her lover's adopt
ed father himself the author of her un
happy being, surely no more pathetic
figure was ever conceived in a dramatist's
brain or portrayed by a play&r's art.
The conflict wbioh this suggests is
worked out with consumate skill to its
linal issue and tho climax is as impressive
