John L. Sullivan, the ex-pugilist,
says that more people die from Over
eating than from drink. One of the

says that is also the case over there.

U.S. TO ENFORCE THE
NEW BONEDRY LAW
Several Arrests Made Where
Omahans Have Brought
Liquor Into State from
Federal officers here are preparing
to prosecute to the limit violators of
the Reed amendment, the new "bone
dry" booze law which is now in ef
fect. The law makes it illegal to
bring or ship alcoholic liquor into the
state. It cannot be brought in for
one's own use or for some other per
son's use. It can't be shipped in as
baggage or by freight or by express.
It can't be given away or sold or dis
posed of in any other fashion.
Mr. and Mrs. Dan Gard, Forty-second
and Grand avenue, are in the
hands of the federal authorities
charged with bringing liquor here
from St. Joseph. Warrants are out
for three other Omahans, whose

have not yet been apprehended by the
United .states deputy marshals.
"We shall prosecute all such viola
tions, whether the persons are prose
cuted by the state or not," said As
sistant United States Attorney Sax

stitute a violation of the state law
which forbids having liquor in pos
session and a violation of the Reed
amendment which forbids bringing or
shipping it into the state."
Several heavy suit cases full of
whisky, brandy, etc., are in the hands
of the federal prosecutors to be used
