Judge W. C. Webb, of Kau6as,
said, April 4, 1890: "I voted in
1880 against the prohibitory
amendment. For four or five yesrs
afterwards I thought ray opinion
as to probable results was likely
to be vindicated. But it is not so
now. Prohibition has accomplish
ed a vast deal of good, ;i thousand
fold more than any license law
ever did or ever could/'.
William Larabee, at first an op
poser, wrote Feb. 16, 1889: "I
think more thau half of the jails
in this State are empty at the
present time. The families of la
boring men now receive the bene
fits of the earnings that formerly
went to the saloons. There is no
question in my mind but that this
law is doing good for the people.
The law has more fripp.ds in the
State than it ever had before."
I have not space to multiply
such endorsements of prohibition
in Maine, Kansas, ami Iowa from
citizens of these states. They
ought to know. Their endorse
ment, let me say, refers to the
time preceding 1890. The com
mittee of fifty made its report
some two or three years ?go. I
regret that I cannot give the ex
act date. To me it sterns incredi

states during the fouryears that

I expect yet to obtain convincing j
