for Drnnkenness Compared With 1D14 Prof Stuart Chapin of Smith college writes as follows: no license has been in opertaion less than four months in Northampton it has already saved the taxpayers hundreds of dollars by causing a large reduction in the num ber of arrests for drunkenness The Northampton police records show that the number of arrests for drunkenness during the months of May June and July HG5 tinder no licenso was less than half the number of arrests for drunkenness under license for the corresponding months of 1915 Crime as indicated by the num ber of arrests for all causes has also been diminished by over 3 pei cent The aggregate number of months and days of sentences to the house of correction for drunkenness in' May June and July 1914 tinder license was five years eight months and five days as compared with aggregate sentences for drunkenness of only five months under no license in 1915 The official report of the Hampshire county jail (where drunkards are sentenced to the house of correction) states that it coSts 825472 a year to maintain the average prisoner At this rate of expense the tax payers were charged $1445 to maintain the men sentenced to the house of correc tion on account of drunkenness in May June and July" 191 1 under license where as the taxpayers were charged only $105 to maintain the much smaller number of men sentenced for drunkenness in Maylune and' July 1915 under no license Thus no license has already saved the tax payers $1340 over the corresponding months of last year "Placing over against the respective 1914 and 1915 costs of maintaining drunk ards sentenced to the house of correction the amount of revenue obtained from drunkard's fines which was $230 in 1914 and $155 in 1915 the loss of $1215 to the 1914 taxpayers has been converted into a net gain of $50 for the 1915 taxpayers "The following figures obtained from the police records and based upon the cost of maintaining a prisoner in the Hampshire county jail's house of correction will be of interest to taxpayers: license 1914 months of May June and Number of arrests for drunkenness 101: total number of arrests all causes 163: aggregate sentences to the house of correction for drunkenness in 1914 five rears eight months and five days: cost of maintenance of drunkards sentenced to the house of correc tion in 1914 $1445: receipts from flues in 1914 $230: net loss to taxpayers un der license in 1914 $1215 No license 1915 months of May June and July Number of arrests for drunkenness 49: total number of arrests all causes ill: ag gregate sentences to the house of correction for drunkenness in 1915 five months: cost of maintenance of drunkards sentenced to house of correction in 1915 $105 receipts from drunkard's fines in 1915

minor equipments industrials and motors gained two to eight points few of which were re tained at the close There were signs in the course of the day that conservative Wall street is taking less interest in the movement of the issues especially those whose continued advance is made possible mainly from the small amounts of stock available for speculative purposes It is noteworthy also that financial institutions are exercis ing greater caution in their acceptance of these stocks as loan collateral oreign selling was again a factor London's lower level for the American list being
