It has been conceded by eaiineat scientists
that outward applications, such as rubbing

are the result of the poisoning of the blood

of this relentless tyranny. Hitherto
our city goverumeul has granted a
license to the saloon keeper to carry
on his infamous work for the paltry
sum of $52 per year. A large number
of the saloon-keepers take out a li

Recently the citizens undertook to se
cure the requirement of $500 as the
price ot license. Petitions were cir

the signatures of 6,000 prominent bus
iness men. It was stated by Judge
Grant that .00,000 signatures could
have been secured if- a little more
time could have been given to the
work. Some of our city papers, es
pecially the Inter Ocean, urged the
importance of advauing the license
f ee to $ oOO.
La-t Saturday a large delegation of
citizens met the committee from the
council having the matter in charge.
Judge Grant and several business
men ably urged the importance of a
higher license, which might be re-,

I he Jury Systems.
Evidences of diss-atisfaction with
the petit and grand jury systems are
cropping oul in various parts of the
country. Governor Ireland, of Texas,
in his last message to the legislature
recommended important limitations
in the clans of cases submitted to the
.inner, and a bill has been introduced
in the Illinois legislature for the total
abolition of the latter. The Constitu
tion of the United States provides
that the trial of all crimes shall be by
ju:y, except in c.ises of impeachment
so th;it nothing less than a constitu
tional amendment could effect the ab
olition uf juries in criminal cases, and
certainly very few people would wish
to see a radical change in this deeply
grounded principle of Anglo-Saxon
law; but there is a very general senti
ment in favor of making a clearer
distinction than there is between the
power of the jury with reference to
the law and its powere with reference
Governor Ireland favors dispensing
with juries in civil cases, for the rea
son iiiat own e to their errors the ap
pelate courts are overburdened with
work, and the duty of seivingon ju
ries is ouerous to citizens. Many will
recognize the force of this latter prop-
sition. The men who make the best
jurors, as a rule, are seriously incom
moded by being taken away from their
business, while those who hang around
the courts anxious to serve are the
very ones who should not be permitted
to do so. It is certain that in many
instances the ends of justice are not
well subserved by juries as they would
bo by judges, for the reason that the
former are more liable to be swayed
by their sympathies and prejudices.
Misdirected eloquence is lost on a
practiced judge, whereas it is frequent-
all powerful with a jury. Governor
Iteland's plan is to substitute for the
present arrangement twe trial judges,
who can be appealed from when they
differ. He says: "So far as making the
judgment of the trial court final, I
think it will be readily conceded that
two good lawyeis holding the trial
court would be much more competent.
with the witnesses and facts before
them, to determine a casG correctly
than three or more judges holding the
appellate court, could do on a trans
cript sent up. This change, he claims.
would have the merit of effecting
more just results, being speedier, more
economical, less troublesome to the
community and less burdensome on
the higher courts.
Changes of this nature are to be
made cautiously. There is a good deal
of vested v is lom in established usa
ges frequently which does not appear
on the surface. Still the taking of law
questions utterly out of the hands of
juries has beon revolved in the minds
of many thoughtful jurists, the gener
al imdression being that it would be a
wise move. As to the wisdom of abol
ishing the Grand Jury, as contempla
ted by Illinois statesman who has in
troduced a b:li to that effect in his
state, not so much can be said. There
are certain kinds of indictments
which can be found much better in
the secret sessions of the Grand Jury
roim than anywhere else. Informa
tion can thus be obtained which could
be procured in no other way. Perhaps
such cases are rare, but still they ex
ist. The subject is one which it will
do no harm to discuss, however. It is
a peculiarity of law procedure that it
is liable to grow more musty than any
thing else, because it depends so much
on the gospel of precedents. A shak
ing of it up may prove profitable.
The Arkansas legislature has finally
rejected, by a vote of 5:1 to S3 in the
bouse, the proposal to consolidate the
state with the Federal (Congressional
and Presidential) elections. The union
was advocated ou the score of. econo
my ; there is no attempt to conceal the
fact that it was opposed on the ground
that the river counties ought not tube
deprived, through presence of Federal
officersjat.the polls, of the opportunity
of bulldozing colored voters, or mak
ing fraudulent returns at state and
county elections. A. Chicot "General"
appealed tV democrats in the
House theS jTday to "look at this
fill iu the light that we of the river
counties view It. It meant ruiu to
us," he said ; "it means that our couu
ties shall be governed by : negroes."
Now, If this talk means anything, it is
an admission that the negroes in the
rivor counties are in the majority;
that they will not vote the democratic
ticket; that they now are iu. permit
ted te vote at all, and that if they
were allowed to. vote, republican can
didates would be elected. The facts
thus admitted are true, so fur as two
or three counties are concerned Globe
Shall There be Bang.
F roui the Wlr-hiU. (Kail.) Tlmsv
Bangs on a girl give her n unruly
look, like a cow with a board over her
face. You take the gentlest cow in
the world and put a board ever her
face, and turn her out in the pasture
aud she gets the reputation of being
unruly, and you would swear she
would jump fences and raise merry
Hades, and you wouldn't give srt much
for her by $10 only for beef. It is so
with a girl. If she wears her hair
high on her forehead, or brushed back,
or even has frizzes, ana nas a goon
look, you will g your bottom dollar
on her, and you feel that sha is nsgoml
as gold, and that when she tells her
young man that she loves him, there is
no discount, and no gigging back; but
take the same girl, with her front hair
banged, and when she looks at you,
you feel just as though she would
hook, and you can't trust i he r. She
has a fence-jumping look that makes
a young man feel as though he would
not feel safe unless she was lied hand
and foot so she couldn't get out of the
pasture. A girl with. bangs 'may try
to be good and true, Uni it lis awful
hard work. When she looks at her
self in the glass and sees the quarter
of an inch of forehead, she says to
herself: "I am dangsrons; they want
to look out for me." She thinks she
is all right, but she is constantly do
ing that which a girl who wears her
hair brushed back would not think of
doing. The bang girl may belong to
the church, and may try to put ou a
pious look when the hymn is being
read; but she will look out from be
hind those bangs, sidewise, at some
meek and lowly young Christian who
is trying to get his mind on the hymn,
and he will get his mind on her, and
it will break him all up, and he won't
know whether he is singing "A Charge
to Keep I Have" or "She's a Daisy."
The bang girl may place her bangs on
the back of the pew ahead of her dur
ing the morning prayer, and try to be
good, but her corset will be too light,
and as she hitches arouud to ease the
pain, one eye wilt rise like tho morn
ing sun over the back of the pew, and
that eye will catch the eye of a young
man two seats to the right, who is
trying to cover Lis face with one hand
while he tries to keep the flies eff the
pomade on his hair with the other,
and his interest iu the prayer is
knocked into a cocked hat. The hang
ing of gill's hair changes the u hole
nature of the little wretch, aud she be
comes as a gun that is not loaded.
You take a picture of "Eyangeline''
aud bang her hair, aud she would
look as though she would like to
"run at" people. How would Mrs.
Van Colt, the alleged female preacher,
look with her hair banged? It is just
the same with boys. Yoa take a nice,
pious Sunday-school boy who can re
peat 300 verses of the New Testament
and cut his hair with a clipper, unci he
looks like Tug Wilson.
