MASSACHUSETTS HIOU LICENSE
Massachusetts , whoso people a foi
months ago defeated constitutional pro
titbtUon by nn overwhelming majority
adds its testimony to tlio good result
of the operation of high license. Th
Massachusetts local option , restrictive
ilgh license law wont into effect Ma
1 , and in its general .provisions it i
ono of the most rigid acts of the kini
n the United States. It has boo
strictly enforced , nnd the result
n sixteen license cities are in
.oresting and instructive. It i
shown by official figures thn
ilio aggregate number of saloons i
these cities has decreased nearly slxt
[ ) or cent , while the revenue obtalne
lias very materially incrcnsod. Las
year the sixteen cities contained a ( e <
moro than three thousand saloons
about one-half of which were in Bostor
and they paid into the public troosuric
a little over ono million dollars. A
present these cities have but a few mot
than twelve hundred saloons , whic
have contributed to the public rovonut
a million nnd a half dollars.
The significance of Boston's oxpoi
ionco with the new law is cspcciall
striking. It is stated that since th
law wont into operation whole streets i
Boston have changed their charactc
for the bettor , and places which wet
formerly the refuge of the worst oh
monts of the city's ' population no longc
exist. In this and the other cities th
licensed liquor sellers very general !
carefully conform to the requirement
of the law as to selling to intoxicate
persons and minors , closing at the spot
Ifiod hour , nnd on Sunday , nnd other in
portnnt provisions , and the olTcct :
that there is far loss drunket
ness soon than formerly. Excor ,
in two or thrco of those citie
whore the temperance sentiment is r
its lowest point , in tlio state , the poUc
concur in slating that it has never be
fore been so easy a matter to keep o
fcctlvo watch of the saloons. The la
is evaded by some of the least roputabl
hotel keepers , but the better class hnv
for two or throe months refused to son
liquors or wines except to actual guest
and thentonly in their rooms. The soi
rotary of' the Boston law and ordt
league states that it is now' ' impossibl
to llnd a saloon open in that city o
Sunday , and the sarao is true of all bt
two or three of the other cities.
The Boston Advertiser says the law
proving the most successful oxporimoi
over entered upon by the people <
Massachusetts in their endeavors I
cope with the liquor trallle. Statistic
relative to tlio increase or doorcase i
drunkenness it is impossible to obtai
at present , but it has boon cloarl
demonstrated that the law has groatl
restricted the sale of liquor and worke
a most important reform in the condui
of licensed saloons. A noteworthy fa <
is that no actual opposition to the la
is developed anywhere , even the 02
tromo temperance leaders showing
disposition to give the law a fair trii
in this respect , setting a commendabl
oxamnlo to such loaders in other state
having high liconso. In all respoc
the testimony supplied by the thrc
months' experience of Massachusot
with its local option , high license la
will bo in the highest degree satisftv
tory to the friends everywhere of tin
policy , and is a very striking and sul
stantial argument in its support.
CARLISLE IN MEXICO.
The distinguished attention which i
being shown ox-Speakor Carlisle I
Mexico will bo gratifying to the ontir
American people. It is a roassurin ;
evidence of the friendly regard of th
authorities and people of Mexico fo
the people 'of the tjnitod States , and i
ia alike our interest and theirs that thi
spirit should be encouraged and cult
vatod. Mr. Carlisle is worthy of th
consideration that is being extended i
him. Ho is u reprcsentativo America
citizen , who as speaker of th
house of representatives , three time
chosen , illlod honorably a positio
of dignity and power second in irapor
anco and responsibility only to that (
the presidency. Regardless of politic
differences , all fair-minded men wi
concede to Mr. Carlisle a high order <
ability , candor and fairness in the di
cussion of political issues , a just and n <
equate appreciation of the duties ar
obligations of olfcial position , and ut
questionable patriotism. The attont'o
shown him in the neighboring ropubli
is more than a personal compl
merit. The courtesy extends to a
his countrymen , and the splr
that prompts it will bo reciprocated 1
ail of them.
The intercourse of Mr. Carlisle wit :
the statesmen and people of Mexlc
ought to bo productive of good result
It ought to do much to give the Mox

the United States has not for yea
done anything to promote bott <
commercial relations between the tv
countries. There Is an nltogothi
groundless fochng in Mexico , also , th
this country covets a portion of her to
ritory , and that thoro. is a largo uumbi
of people here who seriously hope fi
the conquest of Mexico at some pork
in the not remote future. Ono of h
most prominent statesmen diacussi
this matter some months ago in i
American magazine , with a view
showing the American people that th
should allow Mexico to remain a sist
republic. What Mr. Carlisle has t
ready said to the Mexican po
pie waa designed to die
buao their minds of su >
erroneous impressions and to assu
them of the friendly fooling and doslr
of the American people. In this ho re
fleeted the nearly universal sontimon
of his countrymen.
The extension of the trade of th
United States with nil American cour
trios is a growing necessity , and Mos
ice offcrod a field hardly loss valuabl

lost $103,000 at .faro during the summer. "
This was the big topic yesterday among

Thompson made $120,000 last season at the
Academyof Music. When the season closed
ho had a round hundred thousand in the Bank
of tbo Metropolis. Instead of going to
his place at Swansea ho remained in town.nna
to matio up for the excitement , of the theater
took to that of the green cloth. Ho got lu
with a syndicate of gamblers who run an es
tablislimont nt 818 Broadway , and at various
times since the llrst of Mav , parted with all
his money. Thompson's manager , Gilmore ,
denies the report , saying that Ttiompson has
no money In his own name. His earnings
were pivon to his wife regularly every week
and she kept nn account at the Bank of the
Metropolis. She drew out the mouey to pay
the company nnd meet the regular expenses
of business , nnd it would be Impossible for
bor husband to lose n large amount of money
without her consent and connivance.

If your carpet looks dingy and you wish to restore its
colors to their original freshness , use Ivory Soap and tepid
water ; apply with a scrubbing brush ; use very little water
so as not to saturate the carpet. After scrubbing lightly ,
rub the carpet with a cloth ; wet frequently with clear
water so as to lake up the dirt and soap ; wring out the
cloth thoroughly before wetting it again ,
A WORD OF WARNING.
There are many white soaps , each represented to be "just as good as the1 Ivory' ) "
they ARE NOT , but like all counterfeits ! lack the peculiar and remarkable qualities of
the genuine , Ask for " Ivory" Soap and Insist upon getting it.
