to Sell Any Alcohol
Druggists of I he city nre taking
under advisement a proposition to re
fuso to sell alcohol under any condi
tions whatever after tho first of the
year when the new prohibition law
goes into effect. The now law, accord
ing to the interpretation of Attorney
Genernl Brown Is very stringent, and
the druggist will seli alcohol at his
neril. In other words, all responsibility
Is placed on the druggist, not only as
to whether tho doctor has a right to
prescribe, but as to whether tho party
presenting the prescription, has a right
to receive the alcohol. The situation
seems to be that if a party presents
an affldnvlt and a prescription proper
ly signed by a physician, and if the
druggist fills the prescription, and the
snid party gets drunk and does a lot
of damage, the druggist is liable tinder
the new law, With a condition like
this, the druggists nre seriously con
sidering to refuse to sell alcohol un
der any circumstances whatever. As
the attorney general says, the druggist
does not have to sell alcohol, and if
he does, he is liable for any subsequent

Fire Breaks Out On a
British Sugar-Laden Ship
New York, Dec. 11. Discovery of a
mysterious fire in her after hold drove
the 3,740 ton sugar laden British
freighter Tyinghame back into port to
day with her crew fighting the flames
and a heavy smoke blanketing her.
The fire was found when the vessel
wag only a few miles out of port on
her way to Quecnstown. A harbor
fireboat rushed to her aid and poured
great streams upon her.
While the origin of the firf is a mys
tery, it is believed to be incendiary,
probably the work of anti-ally ageuts.
Twenty minutes after she passed the
Narrows and headed out to sea, of
ficers found the blaze. Her wireless
operator cracked out tho news that she
was heading back, giving to shore sta
tions the sign "N II " meaning that
she was either afire or leaking. As soon

The silonce of Vienna in the fnee of

seemed nminous. On every side was
the question, "does Austria intend to
disregard America's firm request and
force a break!" The outlook in most
quarters seemed none too optimistic.

that the usual examinations were dis

Young men, single and married, and
middle uged men were in the cnlistinc

crowd, including several men in silk
hats, a dozen bank clerks, and soma
professional men, had becu lined up for
over an hour.
In South London, tho crowds wero
even heavier. Provincial citioB reported
they had recruited men all night and
weary officers faced additional thou

From Liverpool came a plea for mora
