PROHIBITION NOT A FAILURE.
TlK-KiloH Jlnst Hc Wny to I'nets.
KlHTOlt Bllt.U'.TIN !
I havo rend with attention the
communication in your paper under
the heading, "Prohibition in Kan
sas," by S. S. 1 have no desire to
criticise Mr. Shepherd's statement,
of the situation in Kansas when Hie
cyclone of prohibition struck It over
ten years ago. Our imagination is
ample to truthfully picture the scene
likely to occur when the check was
first given to the rum trnlllc by the'
Kansas Prohibition law.
It is well attested that the alco
holic drink tralllc struggles persist
ently against its enemies die hard.
It is not to be wondered at that its
friends got. drunk at its funeral,
howled, gnashed their teeth, fought
the law, evaded the law, hampered
thu olllccrs of the law, cursed all
upholders of the law, sold liquor by
stealth contrary to law, 'and danced
in fiendish revelry around" their
success in evading the law, mourned
over its downfall and refused to be
comforted, and kicked up that par
ticular hell that. Mr. Shepherd has
described, by having to be forced to
comply Willi the la.
Perhaps it is not too much to say
that breaking the law or causing
others to break it, by committing
violence and trau.ping upon all de
cency, is a part of the natural fruits
of the saloon, whether Iho saloon be
in countiies of high or low license,
or 'free liquors. The police usually
haunt the. saloons hunting for law
breakers. If the saloon keeper does
not break the law, some of his dupes
do, as being crazed by the liquor he
sells them, they quarrel ana light,
perhaps kill each other ; starve, abuse
and perhaps kill their wives and
children. Some of the most desper
ate criminals have to brace them
selves with strong drink to enable
them to commit sonic of their worst
crimes, like the murderer who had
accepted the task of murdering u
whole family, he confessed upon the
gallows that he got along all right
until he came to the babe. lie bad
no heart to kill it, as it looked up
into his face and smiled, but he
nerved himself with liquor, then he
finished his task, with no more com
punction of conscience. How strange
it is that men should hanker after
such hellish drinks that lead to so
much miser' and crime? However,
I do not propose to preach a seiinon,
but to combat testimony with testi
mony to prove that prohibition is not
a failure in Kansas.
In .June, 1S88, ex-Governor John
A. Martin, who had then been gov
ernor three and a half years with t lie
most ample facilities for knowing
whether prohibition was a failure or
not, declared in a public speech in
Topeka that he was originally op
posed to prohibition, and voted
against, the prohibitory amendment
in 18S0. Rut he said the complete
success of prohibition during the
previous seven years, and the benelit
of it to the State, had converted him
from an opponent to a champion of
prohibition. In this speech (if we
are correctly informed), he made the
following statements: "Lurst 1 as
sert in the most positive language,
that the temperance laws of Kansas
are enforced as earnestly, as fully
and as effectively as any other laws
on our statute books, or as are the
criminal laws of any other Slate in
"Secondly I do not believe that
there is to-day an open saloon within
the limits of the Slate of Kansas.
I do not mean to say that in
toxicating liquois are noi sold in
Kansas. Rut I asserl, with emphasis
and earnestness, that the open sa
loon has been banished
from Kansas utterly.
"Thirdly I asserl thai whenever
and wherever liquors aie sold in Kan
sas at all they are sold just as other
crimes are committed, namely, in
secret; just as houses :ue robbed or
horses are stolen, and by men who
live in daily and hourly terror of the
"Fourthly I atlirin that, as a rule,
arrests of those who violate our tem
perance laws arc as swifi and cer
tain, and their punishment, when ar
rested, as sure and full us are arrests
and punishments of any other class
of law-breukeis or criminals.
"Filthly 1 believe and declare
that, as a result of our prohibiting
laws and the punishment of the open
saloon, fully nine-tenths of the drink
ing and drunkenness prevalent in
Kansas eight years ago have been
Governor Humphrey, the present
Governor of Kansas, comlirnis this
testimony of his predecessor by the
following oflicial statements in his
message to the Legislatuie:
"The growth of public sentiment
in support of constitulioiial prohibi
tion in Kansas is steady, heallhltil
and unmistakable. In the last poli
tical campaign no political parly had
the temerity to deinuud a resubmis
sion of the question lo the people in
the faco of a popular verdict that has
bet'ii repeated and emphasized every
time the popular verdict has been
taken, As an issue of Kansas poli
tics resubmission is as dead us
slavery. The law gener
ally is being respected and enforced,
because, by a sort of cducitional
process, it is becoming identified in
the public mind with other ciiiuiiial
The Governor then goes on to
speuk about the remarkable diminu
tion in crime :u the result ol prohi
bition, shown in the great falling off
of Die jail and prison population,
I submit, taking the three testi
monies, Unit of Mr. Shepherd re
ferred to by S. S., and that of the
two Governors named above, the
weight of evidence proves thai pro
hibition is not a failure in Kansas,
Mr, Hhepheid makes positive as
sertion in shuip language that the
Kansas piohibition law caused a hell
of time in Konsas ten or .more
years ago. No ono denies it. And
the two Governors have made strong
and earnest statements of the effect
of prohibition law eight and ten
years after. As each has written of
diffeient periods of time there is lit
tle or no coilllict in their testimony.
The Governor states, "The open sa
loons have been banished utterly."
If a prohibitory law should shut up
all Mie saloons in Honolulu, would
we pronounce il a failure, even if the
old lepers did get something to drink
in dark cellars with the trap door
behind them? Wo feel quite sure
the saloon keepers would not say it
was a failure. According to the
testimony, breweries, distilleries and
open silicons "have been banished
utterly" from Kansas by the prohi
bition law. So we mtist say, prohibit
lion is not a failure in Kansas."
There are other mil nls in S. S.'s
letter we nmv refer lo another time. I
"1 have just iccovered lrom a 'sec
ond attack of the grip thi3 year,"
says .Mr. Jas. O. Jones, publisher of
the Leader, Mexiu, Texas. "In the
latter case 1 used Chamberlain's
Couj-h Remedy, and I think with
considerable success, only being in
bed a little over two days, against
ten days for Iho first attack. The
second' attack Iain satisfied would
have been equally as bad as the first
but for the use of this remedy, as I
had lo go lo bed in about six hours
after being 'struck' with it, while in
the first case I was able lo attend to
business about two days before get
ting 'down.' " SO cent bottles tor
