stealing a caddy of tobacco was commenced
In Justice Field's court yesterday afternoon.
Ho was not caught squarely In the act of
stealing , but was captured as ho and James
Harris were removing the Sox containing the
tobacco from beneath a pile of lumber. Lim
erick's defense is a good deal like these of
other men who have been plunged Into the

Nlpps , whom he docs not know , offered him
$1 to take the box to sonic- place , ho did not

ho , "do It. I would Blgn nny paper that

Its object. I have como to see that a law

Social Purity society gave notice that If the
houses of prostitution In the city were not
closed by May 1 an ofilcer would raid them
and arrest every person found In the places.
A constable and two special officers have
commenced the cnmilc and so far forty
women have been arrested and held to the
grand Jury. A number of prominent young
men were arrested In the places and carted
In an open vehicle to Jho court. All gave
bonds. Indications are that the movement
will result In the closing of all of the
twenty-one places In the city. Business men
are greatly Incensed at this course and are
making strenuous efforts to head the society
off by enjoining the county from paying the
court fees In the cases.

to The Bee. ) At a special meting of the city
council this imjnilng the ordinance to license
saloons was amended to make the aggre
gate $1,200 , the special partial ! to be paid
quarterly In advance. It was read n second
end time , then laid over till the next meet
ing , to give opponents of the measure an
opportunity to be heard. The attempt to fix
the license at $1,000was generally criticised ,
that being the lowest sum fixed so far by
nny city In the state. Mayor Hlllls Satur
day night went on a pllgrlmaga of investi
gation ainoni ) the gambling houses nnd
liquor Julnts under the elinperoniige of Chief
Johnson. The purpose of the mayor was not
at the tlmo to raid the games and joints ,
but merely to post himself on the condition
of the liquor and gambling business In the
city. His nppenrnnco In the places caused
general consternation , and. as a result , the
gambling dens all closed , and If the mnyor
can enforce the law they will remain closed
permanently. The proprietors of Illegal
liquor joints were notified to quit business ,

His reasons are :
Tea and Coffee create nervousness with
a people too nervous already ;
Bitter Chocolates are not fit to make a cup
of chocolate ; cheap ( sweet ) chocolates are
impure , hence injurious ;
COCOA is no more like CHOCOLATE
thin Skimmed Milk is like Cream.
Chocolat-Menier is an ejquisile Vanilla
Chocolate , as nourishing as meat , as low
priced as other beverages , and far superior.
