Pr. V. W. hci ber whs assfwlated with
mo In the drug trade nearly three
years, for four years that I was alone in
the bnsini ss Mr. Lewis T. Hell had ex
ciuuve control of the store. If the
friaries Rgainsl me are true these gen.
tinmen ate equally guilty, but not one
word is said against them. Xhey stand
high in social, business and religious
circles, and the former Is, I believe, one
of the managers of the prohibition par
ty. The managers or the Fharisaiacal
bigots who edit or write for the above
named papeis, would no doubt have
hee'n extended equally to me had they
not imiigined I was antagonizing their
interests, hence 1 am selected and at
tacked with all the malignancy that i
politico-religious crusade can engen
aer. Vt lien 1 left iligginsvlllo I had
a p.itron;ige both In business and In
my profession, composed of as good
people as the community afforded.
Will the authors of the articles alluded
to deny this or account foritif thechar-
acterthey ascribe to me Is correct? If
I wanted to take a part in the local on-
tion tight it was my privilege to do so.
(ientiemoa from Virginia, Kentucky
and Iowa are lending their assistance
to the prohibition iide, and uo one
question their right. Hut 1 bad no
such desire, my connection with the
Lafayette county movement was acci
dental, and altogether unsought, as the
following cards will prove :
I look the prescription of W. P. Sims
to Itichuiond and was refused the
whisky. When I returned the pre
scription I did not know that whisky
could be obtained lu any quantity In
the county. 1 voted for local option at
the late eiectto!- II. W. Hkavenkk.
Morton, Hay county. Mo., September
li a. si us.
When Dr. Stapp's proscription was
returned from Richmond without the
whiBkyl was not aware that 1 could
get it in the counly. 1 went to Dr.
stapp's house and asked him to send to
Lexington to procure It for me. Ills
letter was written in my presence, and
taken to tuDiiat.fllni.-
election. W. P. bins.
Sept. 0, loD7.
The above cards weie both written
by gcutieuieu who voted the local op
tion ticket, and are well-known and
reputable citizen. The fact that I sent
lu Capt. Lesueur has stirred up the
wrath of the wi iters to such an extent
that 1 will brielly notice this cause of
complaint: There is but one man In
Lexington with whom I am as well ac
quainted as Capt, Lesueur, viz :, Judge
J. W. ilairisou, and 1 would as soon
ask a favor of one as the other, but 1
have lieen reminded of the former fifty-two
times a year ever Biuce 1 came
to this county, while Judge Harrison
and myself exchange compliments but
once yearly, iu the toim of checka and
tux receipts, hence 1 did not think of
him at the time. Another cause ot
complaint is, that I did not send to a
druggist. 1 sent to the wholesale
liquor dealer from the simple reason
that 1 thought he would sell cheaper,
but I was unknown to him, and so or
dered through another, lint still the
question is asked, why I did not send
to a gallon house. The cards ol
MeBsrs. lieaveuer and Sims answer
that question. 1 will say however,
that the Wood law had only been lu
foice a few days.aud it was not known
in the country that dealers claimed the
right to sell by the gallon until 'ov
ember 1, under their merchants' licen
ses. As botn iLysuu ana patient uvea
a dozen miles from Hichuiuud and half
as far from Uuidiu, we were a little
slow "catching on to the gallon
racket." The Post man says 1 live
w ittiiu seven miles of Lexiuglon, when
in truth, 1 live double the dtstance.but
when one wants to write a slanderous
article this is us near the truth as It is
necesssary to come. ow, as the pro
hibition organs of Hay and Lafayette
counties have charged me with false
hood, 1 will reiterate my statement.

Well, the greenback dollars are uncon

So long is there were but two
strong political parties in the slate,
neither ot which was willing to risk
lt future on a platform committing it
to prohibition, thero was no channel
through which the now evidently pow
erful sentiment for prohibition could
manifest itself. The Wood local op
tion law opened a channel, and the
whole state, even the original and pro
nounced prohibitionists, are astonished
at discovering that there has so long
lain dormant a sentiment so uncom
promising and so widespread, waiting
only a fitting opportunity to manifest
Itself in favor of the measure.

The prohibitionists are trying to
prove that to purchase a vote with a
free luuch is not half as bad as to pur
chase it with a drink of whiskey. Per
haps there is no way ot determining
precisely the compapative euoimity ot
the two offenses ; but for people who
uuged into politics with such lofty
pretensions to a high moral tone, it
must be rather humiliating to be com
