LAW VIOLATORS PROFIT
MUNICH, Jan. 12 (Correspondence of the Associated Press. I In the midst of its bitter fight with war profiteers and those who sell food through forbidden channels the Bavarian government has found itself seriously hampered by imperial amnesties, particularly by one issued in Berlin on December 3. This amnesty was so far-reaching and comprehensive that it freed virtually everyone • who had bren locktnl up for anything short of a capital crime. It was -fin amnesty for all crimes against military law, the punishment for which did not exceed a certain number of years of incarceration.
The Ministry of Justice is now making every effort to have enacted a new set of laws, particularly aimed at profiteering and the unjust division and distribution of foodstuffs, which shall not be affected by any amnesties that may be issued in the future.
As the situation now stands it will take little short of the death penalty that was proposed for profiteers recently to put a stop to the practice, as long as the Berlin politicians, regularly and systematically annul with their amnesties the most conscientious work of the courts.
At this time every one is interested in making new garments for Spring. We meet you now with a large stock of the latest Merchandise in piece goods and trimmings and with some extra specials.
