Too Big- For Navy.
John Carey Brown, of llillsboro, O.,
is too big a man for the United States
navy. That is tho ruling made on his
application Tuesday by the naval au
thorities in Washington. Drown, who
stands 0 feet 0 inches in his stocking
feet, saw one of the Illustrated posters
of the navy In llillsboro, and came to
Cincinnati to enlist as an apprenticed
seaman. After he was measured and
weighed the recruiting otllcer in
charge thought so well of the appli
cant that he wired the Washington
authorities to waive the dimensions
of the man, but Washington refused
to do so. Drown weighs 102 pounds
and his chest measurement is .'13 in
ches. On the application blank lie is
described as over height and under
weight, "lie couldn't tit in the ham

ACJA1NST Ol'KN SALOON.
EtHTuit ok Nbws-Hhkali) In your
last weeks' issuo appeared a letter by
"One Who Voted Dry" in regard to
"The Bootlegging Evil" and stated ho
had been told that there wcro a large
number of irresponsible former saloon
bums and porters now selling a vilo
grade of whisky at an exorbitant
This man also writes that if no con
certed effort is to bo mado to stop this
kind os liquor selling and that if llills
boro must have the unrestricted boot
legger or tho restricted saloon he is in
favor of the latter.
I think the wrltor Is warranted in
stating Micro is bootlegging going on.
For tho good name of llillsboro I wish
it wasn't. 1 would bo proud to bo able
to truthfully deny it. 1 would llko to
hurl this back as a base slander on our
town proud of its many splendid fami
lies, living ana ueau. nut it is my
belief that only the truth has been
told and probably not all of that. Can
it bo that all physicians ars very
particular In their writing prescrip
tions for liquor ? I do not know.
Have you overlooked over the record
or liquor purchase book open to the
public on every druggist counter? I
am candid In saying tho list don't look
I havo been on the same car with as
many as twenty men on their way to
Fayettsvlllo in times gone by to pur
chase Ixxue. Now they havo to go on
to Norwood. Tho second car down to
Norwood last Sunday lwro six colored
Individuals w ith suit cases. The Post
Olllce and Express Company's money
order departments could talcs unfold
that would harrow up many of our
souls. Several days ago I saw almost
a wagon load of beer kegs and cases In
an express wagon going down High
street. Yes, yes, and e almost had a
drunken race riot the night of last
election. One can smell boozo every
day on some men's breath. One night
last week three drinking men and a
woman were locked up In same room
the calaboose. But, my friends, all
this lxjo.e Is not Imotlegged. It can
bo obtained in many ways.
Wo all know what a "bootleggar" Is
is. "One-Who-Voted-Dry" has woll
described him. Over thirty years ago
In Indian Nation 1 II rst heard hlsnanio.
Uncle Sam tries among the Indians to
keep down bootlegging and boozo
selling, but in a civilized community
lie will issuo license to soil boozo oven
If that community has voted dry.
lie has done that in llillsboro.
The penitentiary and deatli stares tho
bootlegger in the face among tho
Indians. Still ho takes the chances
and usually delivers the goods on
horseback at night.
Do not linaglrio wo will havo no
drunks becauso wo have no open dog
geries. Some will get drunk, peoplo
will talk about it, others lament It,
wives weep about It and holl will go to
pay Just tho same.
And all this debauchery, viclousness
and outlawry seems to bo regarded as
an argument against local option. I
can not see how it can bo so regarded.
This is not a now condition for llills
boro, I am sorry to say.
Wliat agencies are ceaselessly at
work to make local option a failure ?
First, last and always are the browries
It's tho brewery's business and pur
pose to make local option a failure if
possible. It is bending and will con
tinue to bend every energy In that
direction. That's what tho breweries
aro doing all over the state. It mat
tors not to them how many drunkon
debauches, how many freo for all
lights, how many broken heads, how
much distress, how much sorrow and
how much want for food and clothing
follow. They aro lighting for tho
perpetuation, tho very llfo of tholr
business. Arrayed with them In tho
effort aro a plenty of men who havo
been mad ever since local option car
Thoy will go tho length of drinking
more and acting uglier than ever
before to make local option appear
ridiculous. They want tholr boozo
and thoy want it handy. What mat
ters it to them about tho moral, social
and political atmosphere of tho com
munity ? What matters it to them
whether thoro is anything to buy
clothes and food for tho wife and
children ? Whiskey and beer are tho
11 rst and highest consideration to
them and thoy are ready to insult any
one for daring to make a manly and
determined effort to got rid of a tralllc
that has not a slnglo logical reason for
Oh yes, wo know that every dovlco
and deception that human ingenuity
can Invent is resorted to in an at
tempt to show that local option is a
falluro; that more liquor is being
drank now than before, and a whole
lot of other rot that is always used to
bloster up a vice.
, Revenue reports do not show that
more liquor is being consumed now
NEWS-HERALD, HILLSBOfcO, OHIO, THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 2$, iW.
than before local option laws were be
ing enforced. Thoy show exactly tho
reverse And thoy show such a de
I crease that tho liquor associations,
j stato and national, aro bending every
energy to stop tho tremendous inroads
into their business.
Will any one daro say that tho
moral atmosphere has not been won
derfully Improved since tho saloons
wore voted out of business? Hardly.
Who wants tho saloon back ? Novor
has llillsboro had such prosperity.
Lotsof new residences, business blocks
miles of cement walks and gutters,
tsrred streets, street sweeper, road
roller, two nlcklo theaters and accord
ing to tho Gazotte a lowor tax rate
than wo have had for many years
and fourteen less humbug grogshops.
Yes, there is drinking and plonty of
other vices rampant. Hut go ask tho
merchants if there is any difference
than there was live years ago.
They can toll you more about alio
changed conditions than any other
people, becauso thoy seo more. Thoy
can toll you that husbands aro taking
home roasts and clothing for tho fami
ly who before took only beer and
whiskey. Ask tho ladles who used to
bo bumped into by drunken sots If
they notice any change. Ask any man
of unbiased senso and he'll toll you
there has been a most pronounced
change for the better. That's tho
argument that counts above all others
That's the argument that has to do
with tho best there Is on earth, real
manhood and womanhood.
Ah long as tho brewery can evade
tho law under the very nose of our
peoplo to turn a community into a
perfect bedlam of nisordor, just so
long will our peoplo havo to endure It.
Wo need a small organization with
a few men In It who have back bones
not like llshlug worms but llko stcol
Grant that all our "One Who Voted
Dry" friend has claimed, it Is only
another argument against the Illegal
business, it only emphasizes its woe
ful waste and want, its law-breaking
and defiant tendencies.
Noxttlmo we havo a riot or drunken
mob it may not bo broken heads but
-a murder! Then same poor mis
guided boy, husband or father u HI bo
hanged. It will not bo tho man who
sold tho beor and whiskey. He es
capes. It will be one of his deluded
victims who may leave a widowed
mother or a helpless wife and child
ren. Then llillsboro may suffer
genuine sorrow and hang its head in
real shame for a w eek or two. This,
all this and much more, unless we, as
a community, awaken and become
more vigilant. Rational.
AN UNKOKTUNATK CONDITION.
Editou Nkws-IIkuald I llko tho
Idea you have adopted of furnishing a
medium through which freo discus
sion of matter and things may bo had
that are of very vital Importanco to
tho public at large.
Tho public without the encourage
ment and time you havo given would
not take tho trouble to bring to
gouoral notice much Injustice, Imposi
tion and rank malfeasance, misfeas
ance and dishonesty that seem to
havo pervaded the body politic ever
since the old days when men wore
elected to office because of special ill
ness to 1111 the position with fidelity
and ability, have been substituted by
the now methods of selecting any kind
of an individual, who will pay for ills

ance with the dictates of the boss
who will guarantee loose government
to those who wish to violate law and
decency, in order to keep the following

condition upon which he remains

Tho writer can only agree with
"One Who Voted Dry" in hlsjbollof
that it would bo hotter to havo woll
regulated, high llcened (saloons than
to havo the liquor traffic running in
full blast conducted by a lot of con
temptuous, Insolent and lawleas
negroes and poor white trash who aro
apparently protected in return for
services rendered to tho small class of
leeches that have constituted them
selves tho arch dictators of all politi
cal movements and without whoso
consent no movement will bo allowed
These insolent blacks and whites
seem to bo permitted to go on and
soil liquor and disturb tho peacoof
tho village in other ways with im
punity and then whon winter comes
they aro victimized, coaled and clothed
at the expense of the law abiding tax
payer. Work ? Not lie I
It docs seem a shame that wo pan
