Is hard to apprehend persons actually
drinking or selling drinks Illegally. It Is
necess.iry to show an actual sale to make
a case. There are only a few policemen
to cover tile city. There Is nothing to
conceal. It takes public Influence and
public sentiment to properly enforce thesai
laws. Many make complaints, but will
not come to the front with their evidence

Commissioner J. J. Ryder, who waa
