STARTED fN QUOTING some tune ago from an address by Judge Joseph David of Chicago the GlobeGazette precipi tated an interesting little debate in which Judge David and tile Minute wet publication contestants The judge was quoted as calling theVolstead great piece of Instead ot being enacted to inforce the eighteenth amendment it was enacted to destroy he charged All that was needed he main talncd was a little bill to make it a penitentiary often to buy liquor The editor of tho Minute Man in a little notation scribbled on the GlobeGazettes editorial which appar ently was acquired thru a clipping bureau stated This judge does not know the An extended editorial in support ot tho editors con tention that buying Is already a crime was directed to the GlobeGazette too Both the editorial and the editors terse estimate of the Judge were forwardedto the Chicago judge who In a letter to the GlobeGazette defended his conteption that up to this time there has been no de cision of the federal court which Justifies the statement in the Minute Manthat the purchaser of liquor under the Volstead act is subject to On the con says the judges letter the just inference is that he is immune from The judge quotes extensively from the Volstead act itself and from legal authorities on the subject Two or three test cases are cited each bearing out his stand The argument is so lengthy that none excepting lawyers not even wade thru it all Suf fice to say the judge is tremendously clever at conceal the fact if ho is as Ignorant of the law as the Mln Man insists ho is tin no aufflbrlty where any one under and by virtue ot the Volstead act has ever been convicted which conviction was sustained by any reviewing court that the purchaser of Intoxicating li quor for beverage purposes has committed any This Is quoted further In conclusion I wisii to call your attention to the of tlio Supreme Court of the United States Samuels vs McCurdy 267 Unltcii States Su preme Court page 188 which if followed by congress ami proper IcKisiai ion were passed could make liquor held lor beverage purposes absolutely contraband ami cauld lie confiscated even though such liquor was held before prohibition look effect It is very evident by reason of tlio little Joker Section 4G of the Volstead vlai Tho penalties provided in this chapter against lie manufacture of liquor without a permit shall not apply to a person for manufacturing nonin toxicating cider anil fruit juices for use in his was passed to placate the farmer vote and Is in di rect violation of fie Eighteenth Amendment which gives tlio opportunity to make that which was not intoxicating nt the time made to become subse quently intoxicating and therefore really permits the manufacture of intoxicating liquor in violation of the Eighteenth Amendment If proper legislation under the Eighteenth Amendment were passed by congress no person would have a right to have liquor for bev erage purposes which was intoxicating in his posses sion ami any one who purchased file same could be punished as a criminal Bo those who fuvor prohibition really want prohi bitionm fact If so the remedy lies with file con yrcss of the United States First To make the purchaser of lifliior the real criminal nnd to provide for severe penalties Second To not permit any one for any purpose to manufacture for beverage purposes intoxicating liquor of any kind Third To order confiscated nnd destroyed in the United States ail liquor held by any one for beverage purposer and to provide severe penalties for to surrender such liquor for destruction or confisca tion as tho case may be Whether the purchaser of liquor Is in fact punishable Tinder the present Is neither here nor there as the GlobeGazette views the matter It will let Judge David the Minute Man argue out this point with an In clination to be on the side of the judge whose business It to view both etdes of a question rather than the editor who Is commissioned to find that prohibition Is all wrong What is Indisputably true is that buyers of liquor are not being punished No attempt Is being made along this line as a ot fact Whether Its the in forcers courts or law to blame we do not presume to state But we reiterate what has been stated before That prohibition nforcement is never going to be entirely successful until buying Is a punishable offense So long as there Is a buying demand there will be a selling sup ply This is true ot liquor and Its true of other things Its an economic law LIKING CRIMINALS A LL o us are sometimes amazed amused or disgusted when we discover wide popular sympathy for a crim inal No matter what tha crime guilty men or women are usually showered with pleasant attentions by some body Have you ever thot about the reason for this It la probably becauso the criminal represents to many people the kind of person they would really like to be If they dared if they were not held back by social re straint

Curtis Watsan Goff and other assorted propftets Xarent in complete accord with Co Hoover Lowden and with one another ButV take too long to repeat all Its a trifle confusing anywaj THE only thing the

differences oC opinion among them selves too but lihe the republican prophets they all do agree on one G O prospects in November are shot all to thunder The farmers have been largely re publicans hitherto but way the democratic prophets figure theyre going to flop over to the demo cratic side lo get tha MeNaryHaugen bill passed AT this point wo run Into a queer enough state ot affairs to knock all logical prophecy galley west and crooked The McNaryHaiigcn plans a teetlvo tariff proposition Yet Calvin Coolidge the high priest oC the loftiest kind of a protective iff not only vetoes the gen bill but roasts it to a brown turn as Whereas the democrats who always have said the republican tariff ratea were robbery are offering the farm ers all they want of theyll flop over and vote tha democratic ticket SOME prophets dont believe democratic party really can turn Itself inside out liko this when li comes actually to doing it They think the thing will resolve Itself into a fight not to pass the NaryHaugen bill but to cut the touj ore tho tariff rates that we have equalize down Instead o equalizing up The truth is the prophets are all mixed up You cant trust any ot OTHER EDITORS A
