Vineyard then Turner would have been

parties, he is released from liability.
He admits giving cartridges to Keady

The resolution calls for a commission

"The btate is making liberal appro

he was in the habit of drinking to

known this fact, and where he ob

there are other guilty parties besides
the boy, who has paid the full penal

complaint against these vendors of

and put a stop to the practice.
Yes, whiskey is the cause of many,
perhaps most, such tragedies, but
this is a case that ought to prompt
sincere, thorough efforts in every
city in the state to suppress this
form of violation of the law. It is
common, no doubt, in all our cities.
