MIKE BROWN, S

CONTINENT, having made exhaustive
study regarding the rate of insanity in
ariom States concludes that the reason
the rate is apparently higher in Kan
sas than in Nebraska and some other
States is because Kansas has made
iroro "philanthropic mid scientific ad
ance in its duty toward citizens ol
disordered minds." Hecause of the liu
mau( and siiieutific care given the in
sane in their State institutions, people
of Kansas are inure willing than in the
other States to commit their insane to
the enro of the State. The State bj
law requires all insane sent to Statu
hospitals. None arc permitted to re
main in county or priato chnrge.
Mich means that in advanced Kan
sas all cray people are lin the humane
find scientific care of the Stato Asy
him, while in other States many are in
their homes or in the county alms
Theije is nothing in a prohibition
policy to increase insanity and nothing
ii. tlio license policy to decrease h On
the contrary the national convention of
neurologists in Chicago this summer de-cl-ued:
"Alcohol when taken into the
yUm acts as a definite poison to the
lir:uin and other tissues and the, effects
of this poison nro directly and indirect
ly responsible for a large portion of
the insane, epileptic", feeble-minded and
other forms of mental, moral and phy
They further adopted this resolution:
"WU LfNOTAUriKDLY CONDEMN
THE USE OP ALCOHOLIC 1JEV

Tl'KES TAKE STEPS TO ELIMI
NATE SUCH USE."
Let KANSAS SPEAK for herself in
A well-known member of a well
known Masillt family, now living in
Chanute, Kansas, during n recent visit
to h s old home, bore eloquent and en
lliiiti.istic testimony to the good effects
of piohibitiou in Kansas and said
there was among the rising generation
born and reared where saloons are un
known, a wholesome, disapproval of the
whole liquor trallic. He added that
hiuing known the advantages of a pro
hihition town and State, he would not
want to rear his family in a "WET"
town or State.
Testimony of the same character was
.tneii by a phsician, member of a dis
liuguishfil Washington family, recently
here on a visit.

PROHIBITION DOES NOT PROHIBIT
AND HURTS BUSINESS MATERIALLY
Prof. Homy Lloyd .secretary of
the Fayette County Local Option
League, a native of this County,
a member of the well-known Llovd
family of CJermantown, wrote a
letter to the Hon. Kdward O.
Leigh of Howling Green, Ky-, ask
ing his opinion and observation
concerning the operation of prohi
bition laws in Kentucky, and. be
low we print Mr. Leigh's answer.
1 1 is full of things of interest to
the people of Maysville and Mas
on county, and every voter and
taxpayer should read it.
Mr. Henry Lloyd, Secretary Fay

League, Lexington, Ky.
1 have the honor to acknowl
edge receipt of your letter of the
20th inst., asking my opinion or
observation concerning the opera
tion of prohibition laws in Ken
tucky. Answering your ques
tions numerically, 1 believe 1 can
1. That enmity, strife and bit
terness AKliJ engendered under
attempted enforcement of prohi
2. That prohibition does not
prohibit, but places the unlicensed
sale of liquors in the hands of the
irresponsible men. negroes low
whites, and law-breakers who
have little thought of the punish
ment, even when they are caught,
which is infrequent.
.'! In the case of Howling Clreen.
to take a concrete example, the
voting out of licensed saloons has
materially hurt business and ev
ery man not a fanatic or a police
man or a politician, who is de
sirous of working on the credulity
of the unthinking, will tell you

ution in crime, pauperism or in
sanity, since the county of War
ten voted the saloons out of
Howling (Jreen. the records of th
court do not show it. There are
about the same number of drunks
brought before the court as dur
ing the period of license, and our
County .Judge, himself an ardent
prohibitionist, has his officials out
with a dragnet raking in the al
leged vagrants. I think I notice
in the court columns of my paper
today where half a dozen "vags"
were arraigned in court, and in
the same .court two persons were
adjourned insane and ordered to
Mind you, T do not attribute
these things to prohibition or to
the lack of it. Such conditions
may be brought about from other
sources. It is also probably true
that the same hard times could
have been brought about with or
without saloons. Certain it is that
since the saloons closed here six
months ago, there has been no im
provement in the morals, the reli
gion nor the health of this com-
