Mow Road Money Will Be Spent.
The action of all the candidates for county commissioner in
signing the agreement to spend in each township at least as much
money as that township paid should remove all doubt as to the
carrying of the special one mill levy for good roads.
It will mean that each township will get its money. The money
paid by each township will be spent on the roads of that township
and will be entirely under the control and supervision of the county
The sole question before the people of Highland county now is,
"Are you willing to pay an increased levy of one mill in taxes, the
money you pay to be spent on the roads near your home ?"
This one mill will require you to pay each year for five years
one dollar more taxes on each $1000 worth of property you have
subject to taxation. This is a very small sum and the benefit you
will derive from better roads is certain to repay you a hundred fold.
Remember that the money you pay in will be spent in your own
township and will be entirely under the control and direction of the
Why Willis Does Not Advocate Prohibition.
Recently we had a talk with one of the most influential and
able Republicans in Highland county on the stand taken by Mr.
Willis on the temperance question. This man gave what to us has
been the only reasonable explanation of the position taken by Mr.
We asked him, "What reason can Mr. Willis have for not giving
the weight of his influence and his open support upon the stump to
btate wide prohibition if he believes in it ?"
The answer was. "Aside from the sordid reason of his desire
to be elected governor which I do not believe influences him, he
can have but one reason and that is that he believes the question
of state wide prohibition is a minor issue in Ohio ; that the other
things for which the Republican party stand in Ohio are of much
greater importance than prohibition and that he should not endan
ger their success by advocating temperance."
We asked him, "What are the great things for which the Re
publican party stands in Ohio ?" His answer was. "It would
take too long to tell you." And he then walked away.
If Mr. Willis considers the carrying of state wide prohibition
a minor matter will he not also consider its enforcement and the
passage of laws to make it effective if it should carry of minor im
portance, if he thought its enforcement would endanger the suc
of the Republican party ?
Should An Evil Be Destroyed ? '
If a thing is evil, if it breeds evil, if its environment is evil,
what should be done with it ? Destroy it should be the unanimous
answer. .And such a thing is the saloon.
No man who has ever visited a saloon can deny the truth of
these statements. The talk in such places is profane, vulgar and
indecent. They are often connected with gambling dens. They
are producers of prostitution and providers of inmates and patrons
forjhouses of prostitution. They are violators of law and order.
They are destroyers of character and of morality. They are creators
of base passions. They are incitors of foul thoughts. They kill
the best and cause the worst in man to grow and flourish. They
weaken the body, mind and soul. Homes are wrecked and careers
ruined through them. Into their capacious and greedy maw is
continually poured the hard earned dollars which should go to fur
nish necessities to wife, to children, to mother, to sister. Poverty,
disgrace, want and crime are children of the saloon.
To some the above statements may seem overdrawn, may seem
extreme, but they are absolute truths as anyone who has frequented
saloons must testify and this is not all of the truth. The half has
never been told.
It is true that many have visited saloons, that many have drunk
intoxicants and had the strength of character and will to prevent
their lives being ruined, but even these would have been better if
they had never visited a saloon or tasted liquor. No one can walk
through filth and not be contaminated.
Did you ever discuss the saloon or drinking with men who
drink, men who think prohibition is wrong ? If you have we are
certain that sometime during the discussion the remark has been
made, "There is no argument in favor of the saloon, but" and then
they will go ahead and bring up the old, time worn claims about
prohibition not prohibiting, personal liberty, need of revenue from
saloonsjto conduct public business, increase of taxation, .etc. No
man who is in favor of having saloons, will defend the saloons. He
always begs the question.
You men who drink and who want the opportunity to drink,
even if you have been able to control the habit, do you want your
sons and daughters to drink 1 If you see a woman in a saloon what
do you think of her ? What sort of a business recommendation is
,it to smell liquor on a man's breath ? If you were anxious to secure
a position would you take a drink just before you went to apply
for it ?
We all know that the wife and children of a man who sells
liquor are handicapped ; that there is a certain stigma which at
taches to everyone who is connected with the business. Those who
know them well may learn to respect, admire and love them, but
society generally views them askance. They may be refined, cul
tured and educated, but it is hard for them to convince people that
these things are true. -
Such a business should be destroyed and the people of Ohio
have the opportunity to destroy it in this state next Tuesday. Vote
for state wide prohibition and destroy this institution of evil.
Mean remarks are luxuries in which only those who won't cry
when they have to pay for them should indulge.

Uneasy lies the head of the candidate.
It may be hard to believe after hearing a political speech, but
no matter how the election goes next Tuesday, it will make very
jjttle difference jn the manner and mode of living of any one but
You temperance leaders and temperance workers, you men
and women who are giving your time and money to the cause, how
much chance dp you think there would be for carrying Ohio for
state wide prohibition if all believers in the cause had taken the
position of Mr. Willis ?
Throughout this campaign Republican leaders and the Repub
lican press have been harping on the theory that Mr. Garfield and
Mr. Garford, the Progressive candidates for governor and United
States senator, have no chance to be elected. If this is true, it is
true because the people who believe in the things for which the
Progrersive candidates stand do not vote for them. It will be be
cause the temperance people and the believers in woman's suffrage
vote with the old parties, which are either opposed to these princi
ples or have not the courage to advocate them. If the men who
believe in the things for which Mr. Garfield and Mr. Garford stand
vote for them they have an excellent chance to be elected. The
result depends on whether the people are true to the men who have
the courage to openly espouse the cause in which they believe.

We'll fight the pow'rs of rum,
Until the battle's won,
And peace to us shall come
From heav'n above.

Oh, may thy colors grand,
Float on secure :
Our homes from drink, we'll save, '
And thy bright folds shall wave,
Forever o'er the brave,
Stainless and pure.
Let Christians all unite,
And help our League to fight,
As ne'er before :
Soon will the fatal blow,
Be dealt to drink, our foe,
And all saloons will go,
Great God of liberty,
Our battle cry shall be,

Help us to save our race,
From sorrow and disgrace,
And ne'er let sin deface,
Nor cloud our sky.

The Cleveland Leader gives the first
column of the first page of lat Sun
day's dally to an txten'deu -uuntof
the suffrage parade givnn in tin- pity
on Saturday, Oct. 3 From this atcuunt
we give few excerpts :
Seven thousand suffragl.-ts marching
through solid llncsof spectators offered
the biggest argument for Woman's
Suffrage ever made in Ohio
The police estimated the crowd that
viewed the monster paradu In Cleve
land on Ust Saturday at UOO.OOO.
In the arge yellow and white pagant
that wouhd Its wa djwn Euclid Ave.,
from E. 22nd street, were women of all
ages, all nationalities and all types.
Hundreds of children and scores of
men helped to swell the tide. The
women marched bare headed dressed
white, each wore a sush of yellow and
plnnt-d to each waist wasayellow rose,
the emblem of suffrage.
Instead of the usu il escort of mount
ed police the sjffragists placed at the
head of their procession five young
women In riding costume mounted
astride of Uvespirited horses. Sixteen
bands were scattered through the pa
rade. Ten large automobiles carried
the pioneers of the movement, some of
whom worked fifty years ago for votes
Sixteen speakers carrying soap boxes
dropped off at given points and began
suffrage speeches. As soon as the pa
rade had passed other workers distrib
uted suffrage literature.
Women representing the ten suffrage
states of the United States marched
behind the pioneers carrying banners
of yellow with the name of their state
painted in black letters. Other coun
tries where women are now voting were
also represented. A peace float bear
ing costumed figures symbolical of its
title closed the parade. Mayor luker
reviewed the parade in which VI rs.
Baker and their two children marched.
He declared it was one of the grandest
demonstrations he had even seen.
Federal Judge John H. Clark was in
the reviewing stand with the mayor of
Cleveland. He declared he had never
seen a spectacle which surpassed the
parade. It was perfect In every respect
and without doubt won the women
many votes. N. M. R.
