A CHANGE OF TONE.
Until now tlte Advertiser, as chief
apologist of the (Soveninicnt. has
hail nothing but abuse anil tleliancc
for the people opposed to the pre
sent Government. It lias suddenly
dropped its tone to plaintive whining
that the opponents of the Govern
ment have prevented its conducting
national affairs as they should have
been conducted. This morning's
issue has an article on "The Labor
Question," which announces that
the liberal provision made for immi
gration will be abortive if money bo
not forthcoming. The fact that the
Government is in desperate straits
for money it altiibutes entirely to
the obstructive efforts of the Gov
ernment's enemies. It blames the
planters for upsetting the arrange
ments made for the sale of bonds,
first, by pressing technical objec
tions, and, then, by a clamor against
Mr. Sprccklcs " the only indivi
dual who, having the means at com
mand, has shown a warm disposition
to befriend the country and assist its
progress." Lastly, the obstructing
business men of the Kingdom would
not allow its benevolent friend " to
establish a bank here which would
have assisted the finances of the
Kingdom in the same way that dur
ing the first century of its existence
the Hank of England assisted the
British Treasury." This is a re
markable ground of attack from that
quarter, in view of an article in the
same 'paper two or three days ago,
combating the claims of the Oppo
sition to have defeated the Hank
Bill, the Lottery Bill and the Mili
tary and Naval Bill, which contained
this sentence: "These claims of
success seem utterly absurd, and
are ridiculed by sensible people in
the community, when it is well
known that the original wicked Bank
Bill was brought forward by an
active foreign member of the Oppo
sition, and he and a native member
were the only ones to vote for it
when it was indefinitely postponed."
We never knew what easy jottm
'alism was until we entered tho lists
of controversy with the Advertiser,
that frequently, ns in the above in
stance, furnishes the refutation to
its utterances in its own columns.
Its latest deliverance upon the bank
charter refers to that measure in
these words:" If there were in his
original project .some objectionable
features, these could have been
eliminated without difllciiltyliy
negotiation and by conciliatory rea
soning, and without any of the in
temperate clnmor and scandalous
iieruonulftics which disgraced this
city for sonic weeks during the lalo
session of the Assembly." Then,
what words can sulllcicntly charac
terize the cowardice uud imbecility
of the Government and its supporters
in having foisakeu the bill and lied,
instead of making any attempt to
"eliminate" the " object ionable
features," which could have been
done " without dilllculty by nego
tiation and by conciliatory reason
ing r" The whole m tide is a humi
liating admission that the Govern
ment has never had the confidence
of those representing the substan
tial interests of the Kingdom, and,
if the Advertiser speaks for them,
that its members know it. Its abuse
of the planting and business combi
nation, for opposing the mortgaging
of the whole realm to Air. Sprcckcls
and for successfully resisting such a
consummation upon the strength of
technical Haws in the .scheme, will
crvc to show the nation that it owes
much to the sagacity, patriotism and
self-preserving instinct of that im
portant class. The Advertiser be
wails the determination of Air.
Sprcckcls to do nothing further for
the salvation of the country, and
advises the Government to shut down
upon even the most vitally necessary
public .services. " unless assured be
forehand of the necessary funds."
And then the aiticlc closes with a
virtual admission of the Govern
ment's impotence in rescuing the
nation from the slough of debt and
discredit into which it has plunged
it, by calling upon the planters and
their agents "to consider nays and
means whereby the Government may
be placed in a position to carry out
that immigration policy which they
have so energetically labored to es
tablish, and which the Legislature
has so emphatically endorsed." To
recapitulate, the Government apolo
gist has virtually made confession
for it that it has never held a grasp
of affairs, its oppcronls having con
trolled the Legislature and tiie ad
ministration upon most vital issues,
and that the Government is paralyzed
for want of money. An omission in
this death-bed confession is that the
lack of means of administration is
due to the Government's utter in
capacity in financial administration
beyond eminent ability to waste and
misapply the nation's resources.
Such an exhibit a6 is made, however,
and that by those of the Alinistry's
own household, is incompatible with
the Ministers' holding the reins of
power a day longer.
In to-day's issue we give an ac
count, bearing the stamp of impar
tiality on its face, of a gentleman's
personal observation of tho working
of the new prohibitory liquor law in
Iowa. A few days ago we gave
news of serious riotiug'tm the part
of tcsistant liquor dealers in that
State. The growth of prohibition
sentiment throughout the United
States within the past few years has
been enormous, and the indications
arc that persons now living will sec
the traffic outlawed throughout the
nation. As an evidence of the
sticnglh of prohibition in national
politics, we see the statement con
firmed that a large amount of money
has been offeied to Governor St.
John, of Kansas, in the vain attempt
to secure his withdrawal from the
Presidential contest. It is hardly
likely that the Prohibitionists can
overcome the powerful partisan tra
ditions that keep many of their sym
pathizers "aloof from their ticket.
Yet if they prove that they hold the
balance of power in this contest, the
probability is that in the next one
their cause may be recognized as one
of the planks necessary to success in
the Republican platform. AVc say
Republican, because that is the party
that will suffer most from defection
to the Prohibition ranks ; because it
lias been brought to the attention of
the Prohibitionists that there was no
necessity for their isolated action, as
the Republicans, in a Convention
some years ago, virtually pledged
themselves to prohibition when the
country was do?iucd ready for it,
and because the Democratic plat
form distinctly opposes sumptuary
legislation as an infringement upon
liberty. It would bo an agreeable
surprise to us if Governor St. John
gained this election, for tho reasons
that we regard him as the best man
of all the candidates, that we believe
in the ultimate triumph of prohibi
tion and that the example would c
the best one ever sot to this King
dom by its powerful neighbor.
The following apology is printed
in prominent type at the head of the
editorial columns in this morning's
Advertize)'. It absolves us from the
duty of passing severe criticism upon
the article in question, which was
grossly unjust, untimely and arro
gant in the lone adopted not only to
members of the civil service, past
and present, but to the whole com
munity: "An article was inserted
in yesterday's J'adjic Commercial
Advertiser without the knowledge of
the responsible editor of the paper,
which reflects in a most unjustifiable
manner upon the way in which the
members of the Civil Service fulfill
their duties, and by implication
especially upon two gentlemen named
therein. Wc have to cxpicss our
great regret that such an article
should have appeared in our columns,
and desire to apologize for it to
those whose feelings it is calculated
('(.r.i'xpoudcncu is .solicited on the tor

PROHIBITION IN IOWA.
Eimtoii Bui.Lr.Tix : Perhaps your
readers will be interested in an ac
count of what a prohibitionist saw
of piohibiljon in Iowa during a short
visit to that State.
The first I saw of the State was
anything but encouraging to an ad
vocate of 8umptuaiy legislation, so
called. Crossing the river at Council
Bluffs, I saw the saloons and bars
running just as they ran before the
new law came into force. This, I
was told, was because the olllcors
did not consider the law right and
would not enforce it. How such a
principle would work if applied to all
laws, let these olliccrs say.
Leaving Council Bluffs after u
very brief visit. I went on to Sidney,
the county seat of Fremont County.
Here I remained longer, and, being
more acquainted with the place
learned more of the effects of prohi
bition. The views of the custodians
of the law at this place do not agree
with those at Council Bluffs. No
saloons arc to be found. The usual
conflict with druggists exists. Four
years ago 1 was at the same place, and
saw drunken men almost every time
1 went on the streets. This year 1
spent a longer time there than form
erly, and never saw a man under the
influence of liquor in any degree.
But this result is not to be attributed
entirely to the new law, which came
in force on the fourth day of last
July. Under the late local option
law the work of prohibition began.
Bed Oak, a town about the size of
Honolulu, is, perhaps, a better illus
tration of what has been done under
the present law. The brevity of my
visit, there, however, precludes my
giving any full account of it. A
prohibitionist-told me Hint the police
had not arrested a drunken man
since the fourth of July, though such
arrests were of daily occurrence
previous to that date. But I was
told that there had been a drunken
man on the streets the week before,
and that the Temperance League
would attempt to find out who sold
the liquor and prosecute him. Some
such cases arc to come up at Red
Oak at the next term of court. I
believe I saw a man there who seemed
to be somewhat under the influence
of liquor, but he had just returned
by rail from Council Bluffs, so I did
not discredit what I had been told
on that account.
At Dcs Aloiucs the result seems to
be a little less satisfactory. Saloons
and bars all offer butter-milk nnd
other temperance drinks. Under
this cover the law seems to be vio
lated to a considerable extent. A
week abopt Des Aroines did not
sulllcc to find one drunken man, but
there was no scarcity of evidence
that men got and drank liquors there.
There is littlo room to doubt that
the initiated can get liquor in any
of the places mentioned j and there
is less room to doubt that the state
of tilings is worse in the towns ; but,
during u stay of three weeks in Iowa,
I never saw a drunken man within
That there is to be a fight against
the law is evident from the fact that
tho District Attorney at Iowa City
was given a coat of tar and feathers
for no other offence than Hint of
prosecuting a. liquor case, and that
the president of a Temperance
League was given n shower bath of
unsavory eggs for a similar offence.
That men's consciences arc fearfully
warped by drink is evident from the
testimony given in court by several
men at a Into trial that they did not
know whether whnt they drank at a
certain bar was beer or butter-milk.
