The Blind Tiger Liquor Uw,
We learn from the Wavhaw Ku-
terprise (hat there is some discus
sioii about the liquor law iu this
county. The Walts bill distinctly
says that no previous temH-rame
legislation shall l repealed by it.
As for the special uet for this
county, it was made to catch blind
tigers and will molest no man who
dis'S not want to break the law by
selling blind tiger whiskey. To
eat eh these impudent violators of
the law this act was made strong
on purpose, and it will catch 'em,
too. The law abiding in'opleof the
county will now see to it thai the
festive blind tiger will qui! Ins
mean work or go on the chain
gang for a rest. This business is
coming to lis row's end in I'nion
county, us Judge Allen says. It
has had a long and tlourishing
reign, but the people of Monroe are
going to end it, ami the oilier com
munitiesof the county ran do the
If a man swears out a warrant
against a sus-iccted thief for lar
ecny, the latter's premises can Is
searched for the stolen goods. This
law gives the same right after u
warrant has Im-cii sworn out by
some responsible iicrson, who shall
swear he has reason to believe that
certain person is selling liquor
unlawfully, which reason shall be
stated in the uftiduvit, ami if il is
deemed suflieienl a search warrant
is given, and If thsnsieclcd patty
is found to have more than a quart
of liquor in his possession, il shall
he evidence that he is keeping il
for sale. Now, manifestly, mi man
who is not giving evidence that he
is running a blind tiger can tie
searched, and those who are giving
such evidence ought to lie. We
lake It thai nny good citizen may
keep more than a quart of liquor

I hope that all of Mr. Houston's custom

shall be accorded the same fair, faithful
and generous treatment heretofore receiv
ed. All who have not heretofore patron
