BOTTLED BOOK BEER. Mr. Again Dlelil Sticks to His Detor-mtiiatiuit to Serve the Public nt Any Cost. "In these limes. of injunctions," said Mi. - Adam .Diehl to an American reporter, yesterday,- "1 think it my dnty to inform the public -that the firm'oE Diehl & Lord are the sole bottlers of the celebrated Phcenix and Lion Bock Beer in the South, and the only, bottlers of bock beer in Nashville. It is easy to see that for this reason fcve may bo looked upon as monopolists and may have an injunction served on ua any day to prevent us from continuing the business so as to give some failing rival, who has commenced the manufacture and bottling of an inferior article of beer, an opportunity to force it upon the public. If I should be locked up. in jail for disobeying such an injunction order ns I Jiave. referred to, all I would ask for would be plenty to eat - and three docn bottles of Diehl & Lord's best bottled bock beer every day, and d block of ice to keep, it cool." "But how would you manage to get out again?" asked tho reporter. f'Wby," answered Mr. Diehl, "the court would see I was happier in jail thau out of it, and finding it impossible to make me the. least uncomfortable, would order my TeleaEe. The night I .got out I should invite my friends to our warehouse on Church street, jut below Market, and give them all the bottled bock beer they' could drink. I would ask even the Judge who sent me to jail, and before the. night was over I'll warrant you he would see that as long as a man can get good bottled bock beer to driuk, injunction orders against monopolists have no terrors for him." . The reporter expressed to Mr. Diehl his admiration of his spunk, and bade him good-night,
