WAflRBtnw IETT WILLIAMS informed The Star Wednesday night, that *' his brother Eddie has hud no connection with the Williams packajjre-liquor .store since the first of the year. That's what Tho Star wanted to know. It means that Eddie Williams is operating "on his own"—without benefit of a state license. The newspaper is reporting' to Earl R. Wiseman, State Commissioner of Revenues, that Eddie is soliciting uptown public places for liquor when not available at the regularly licensed Stores. That's n fncU Proving it to the sat___ . _„....... rti.sfnctlon of a jury is something else— but sooner or later it will be done. Thr Star guarantees Mr, Eddie Williams it will be done. There are a few hard-boiled gentle, men of the old El Dorado oil field dt»ys who will testify that it can— and will be—done. The El Dorado Dally News iix 1923-24 cleaned up Union county, and it was Stanley Andrews and this writer who hired the stool-pigeons, copied their affidavits, and wrote the news-stories and editorials based on them. Stool-pigeonft—thcy are the backbone of law-enforcement. We Rot away from that sort of thinking during federal prohibition—and law-enforcement collapsed. Police methods, newspaper crusade methods, are the same the world over. You have to get information in order to prosecute, and any honorable citizen will hi'Ip enforce a just and fair law. The true hypocrisy of federal prohibition was thnt it taught the people the false doctrine Unit there was something dishonorable in reporting law violators. Thus, a too-clrustic law cuts its 6wn throat. But we have drafted a more liberal law today, and it Has got lo be obeyed to the last letter. The Star is demanding that Commissioner Wiseman spend some money lor stool-pigeons in Hope, and on the sido we'll hire a couple of our own. Mr. Eddie will only have to make one sule to the wrong party.

Since the very day of his birth,' the Prince of Wales naturally became the favorite object of speculation on the part of matchmakers, official and amateur. There is a story that, his great-grandmother, Queen Victoria, began it when he was a fair-haired toddler of 2, remarking, perhaps playfully, that "he and the Cziir's baby daughter Olga would make a sweet alliance." The game of mating the prince thus begun by the austere Victoria has been played ever since by practically everyone but the prince himself.
