The Springfield Vitwn naya: " lhe enforcemeut of the liquor law has developed a new and, it is presumod, paying branch of iudustry, at Boston. Itis serving as gubstitutes in working out sentences to jail, administered to liquor Bellers. "We have reliable infonnation tbat at least one hquor seller, against whoni a sentenee of twenty days to South Boston jail is duly recorded on the court register, has not been absent from bis usual haúnts for a day, while a man called by his name is actually serving out the sentence, and it is pretty certain that such cuses have been numerous, and of course have been made possible by the cormiyance of prosecuting oflicers. In China it is nossiblo even for a man senteuoed" to dcath to hire ft substituto to endure the infliction of the punishment ; but we did not know before it was possible for offenders againBt the law in Massaohusetts to expíate their crimef. thus vieariously. For this new proof of demoralization, aa for so many others, we hay to thank prohibition and prohibioniet."
