Special Good Roads Levy.
The decision of the question whether or not a special levy of
ne mill for good roads will be made in Highland county is of the
greatest importance to the people of this county. The question will
be submitted to the voters on November 3.
If it carries it means that each taxpayer must pay each year
for five years $1.00 additional taxes on each $1,000 of property re
turned for taxation and that there will be spent on the roads in
Highland county each year for five years $32,000 more than if it
But one objection can be raised to the increased levy and that
is the doubt as to whether it will be wisely expended. But even if
a considerable portion of it is wasted in our opinion the levy should
Nothing is so essential to the progress and prosperity of a
community as good roads. They are necessary both from the stand
point of business and pleasure. To the man who is hauling loads
or traveling on business they mean much. How much longer will
a vehicle last, how much less is the strain on horses, how much
more work can you do over good roads than over bad roads ? How
much more is your property worth if it is on a good road than if it
is on a bad road ? Figure these things out and if you vote for things
which will save you money you will vote this fall for the additional
levy for good roads.
When it comes to pleasure there can be no pleasure in jolting
and bumping over bad roads.
Just think these things over and then vote for your own selfish
interests and you will vote for the special levy of one mill for good
State Wide Prohibition.
The open saloon is a cankerous sore on the face of society. Its
every influence is evil. It debases morals, it undermines charac
ter, it destroys health, it arouses and inflames base passions and
Ever since we have known that we must vote on the question
of state wide prohibition at the coming election we have given the
question serious thought and unprejudiced consideration. Our
conclusions are given above. These conclusions are not those of a
fanatic nor of one who knows concerning what he is writing only
from what others have told him. It may be proper to state here
that we are not of the class which thinks that every man who takes
a drink is on the road to perdition. We have known many bright,
cultured, able, honest and good men who enjoyed their drink and
some of them men who occasionally drank to excess. We have
also known some saloon keepers who were pleasant, affable and
kind hearted, good friends and agreeable companions. We also
know that a few drinks can make people livelier and more sociable
for the time being. But we have also seen and know the evils con
nected with saloons and the terrible effects of drinking.
We are not trying to paint any horrible picture. We are simply
trying to state plain facts which every man of experience who is
honest must admit. We simply ask every man to vote as he thinka
is right from what he knows of the saloon and of drinking. We
ask the man who drinks, "Did the saloon or drinking ever do you
any good ?" "Did it ever do you any harm ?" If it has never in
jured you, how about your friends and acquaintances ?
We will now give all of the arguments we have ever heard in
favor of the saloons.
Prohibition does not prohibit.
People can not be made good by legislstion.
Not to allow a man to take a drink is interferring with his
liberty and freedom.
We need the revenue from the liquor business to conduct our
It is the abuse and not the use of liquor which is injurious.
To drive out the saloon hurts the business of a town, commu
nity or state.
There is a great deal of sociability in drinking and people should
not be deprived of the pleasure which comes from drinking.
We believe that this is an outline of all of the so-called reasons
in favor of the saloon and drinking.
We will answer several of these alleged defenses together.
During the campaign before the first local option election in
Hillsboro we listened to these arguments and were convinced that
it would be a mistake to vote the saloons out of Hillsboro and we
v voted wet. We are convinced that the results of prohibition in
Hillsboro prove that it is a good thing. It has fairly effectively
prohibited. Taxes are not as high as when we had saloons. Busi
ness is better. The moral tone of the community is higher.
We admit the sociability part of drinking but is it not immate
rial when compared with the injuries which often result.
As to personal liberty and making people good by legislation.
We can not see any difference between prohibiting a man from
selling liquor or from drinking it than in prohibiting h jm from doing
any of the other things which we have determined are injurious to
society and have passed laws prohibiting. Every criminal law is a
restriction of personal liberty.
The arguments against state wide prohibition are the same as
the ones advanced against prohibition in Hillsboro and we believe
they are as fallacious in one case as in the other so we intend to
vote for state wide prohibition.
