Entered at the Postoffice at New

TUESDAY, JUNE 13. 1905.
The mas, meeting 1n .' ay
was well attended and evervth:ii, wa
done decently and in rd. and it
was composed of g,,od and represent
tative men frm vario us seCtions of
the county. ihere is no d.iubt that
the requisi:e number of names will be
secured t, the petiti ons just as soon
as they can be presented and we pre
sume the election will be ordered some
time in August. The opponents to
the dispensary claim that this county
will vote it out by two or three to
one. We do not know how about
that but if the vote were taken now
it would in our judgment be voted
out. Many of those who now oppose
the dispensary were at one time its
most ardent supporters. Many of
them still think the system alright but
are dissatisfied with the management
and the way it is run. Just in what
this dissatisfacton consists one can
not exactly tell but there is in the
minds of the people an idea that there
is something wrong and whether
there is or not it will be a very diffi
cult task to remove that impression.
And many of them have come to the
conclusion that the remedy is to re
move the dispensary. So far as this
county is concerned we believe the a
dispensary has been well managed
and there are no blind tigers.
There can be no objection to hav
ing a test of the wishes of the people
and if there is to be discussion let it
be on the issue. We are crowded for
space and will have more to say on .
this subject in our next issue. We
give a kill report of the meeting on
