but the boys paid no attention other than
to toll him not io move a finger , ai they

but ho hold up bravely , fearing a mlao l-

tied mo and a pissongor back to back and
sot us over a Boat , and then commenced
betting among themselves which would
pull the other over. The atakes were
put up , and then two of thorn got prongi
and began touching us up with thorn.
Ihe follow I had pitted against ma was a
Swede , and neither of us had any show
to pull the other over ; then I resorted to
stratagem , and when they gave the
Swede a prong and ho jumped about a
toot , I pulled hard and ho came fllng
Dvor the seat , and went so far over that
be nearly broke my back , Wo were
loosened then , and they took the Swede's

Prohibitionists often object to all at
tempts at regulating the liquor traflia by
the Imposition of a tax upon the seller or
by the reqoirement of a heavy foe for the
privilege , upon the ground that the vend
ing of splrltoui ducks la a crime , which
the state has no right to localize , The
supreme court of Illinois has laid down
the law on the subject in a way which
will probably surprise such people. The
court declires that selling liquor
Is a common law right of
the vendor , but that it U subject to
such rules and regulations as the lawmaking -
making power of the state may ECO fit to
impose. This is obviously the common-
aonso vlow of the matter. The trouble
with the prohibitionists Is that they en
tirely mistake the character of the act of
drinking liquor , for that Is whit it all
comes back to. They say that the state
w uld have no rifiht to license men to
receive stolen goods , and that It wni no
nnra right to license mm to sell Intoxi
cating drlnkr , But for a man to steal is
absolutely and necessarily a crime , while
for him to take a dtiak of liquor or
half a dozen for that matter ii au
entirely innocent act , with which society
bai no concern , unless the eflecta of the
effects of the liquor make him A disorder
ly person or achargo upon the commnni
ty. Experience shows that It does pro
dnco this effect In a largo majority o
cases , and the stale has , therefore , the
right to place restriction upon the sale o
liquors. Outside of rural communities
public sentiment will not sustain at
tjmpts to enforce absolute prohibition
and the only practicable way to restric
intemperance In cities and largo towns I
to impose heavy taxes or to exact high
AlcMsoD , Kansas , the Scene of a Fen
an FeirulTra2 [ ( y ,
Miss Mary Baldwin , an Estimable
Young Jjnay Found Dead on
Her Bed Grout Excitement.
The town of Atchlson , Kansas , Is just
now terribly shaken up ever a most fou
case of murder that was discovered there
about C o'clock Wcdncsdsy oven'ng.
Miss Mary Baldwin , an estimable , handsome -
some , bright , and very popular young
lady , Is the victim. Of Mr. Roborl
Hunter , who citno up from that place
yesterday , a BKE reporter learned the
particular ! , which arc lhat Miss Baldwin's
dead body was found by two young men ,
In her own room , laying across
the bed , There were no evidences of a
struggle to bo seen , but tbo girl's ' neck
ind back showed signs of having been
bidly bruised , and nnder her body was
Found a small empty rial , on which was a
torn label marked poison. The scene of
the tragedy is a two-story fratno dwelling
on West Commercial street , and consid
erably isolated Jrorn any other buildings.
Mis ! Baldwin was virtually staying alone ,
her father being dead and her mother
away , visiting friends In Ohio. Michael
Fitzgerald and another young man ,
whoso name could not bo learned ,
roomed In an "L" addition to the house ,
but were separated from Miss Baldwin's
apartments by a double wall and two
door * . She was the betrothed of a young
man named A. H. Inwis , and ho was
with her until 10 o'clok the night
Fitzgerald was at a dance the night
seforo and returned home about 12
o'clock. Ho entered the house from an
jutsldo stairway which leads directly to
ills room , noticed nothing nnusuil about
the promises and during the night hoard
nothing. Ho left the house Wednesday
morning at G o'clock by the sums way
and returned at 7 o'clock that evening
with Charles Spauldlng.
On entering the house the two men
Found evidence of a forcible ont'anco and
noticed that Miss Baldwin's room door
was opan , looked in and saw her lying
across the bead dead and the room In
; reat disorder.t
They at Immediately gave an alarm to
iho police and coroner who commenced
it once to make an investigation.
A panel of the back door in the lower
lall had boeu cut out , and through It the
burglar evidently entered. The west
room down stairs was first ransacked ,
and then the robber must have pone up
stairs to Miss Baldwin's room. She was
jnown to have elegant jewelry , and in
ooklng for that and other valuables , it
is likely he awakened the poor girl , who
was then attacked by him and murdered.
Up to yesterday morning the dead girl's
jewelry hod not boon found , , nor was
there any clue aa to the whereabouts of
of the fiendish murderer.
When her father died ho left a large
estate and It was reported that consider- :
iblo money had been secured about the
promises. Several attempts had pre
viously been made to rob the house.
