FRIDAY, JUNE 30, 1905
Some weeks ago The Herald and
News stated is would have something
to say further on the dispensary
question. Discussion at this time we
do not believe will result in any
good or any harm, for the people 'have
made up their minds what they are
going to do whether or not by so do
ing they will get just what they want.
That just now seems to be a sec
ondary consideration, the thing upon
which tihey seem determined just at
this time is that they are going to
vote the dispensary out of the county.
It is in the minds of the people that
there is something wrong with the
management that there is graft and
that the longer the institution existed
the more covrruption there would be. I
They have it also in their minds that
the dispensary is charging too much
for the class of liquor that is sold
and that it is selling and inferior grade
Then there are those who believe that
the institution is being run, not to
regulate and control. the traffic in
whiskey and thus to make it in reality
a step towards prohibition, or at least
to reduce the consumption of whiskey
as a beverage; but rather to encou,r
age the use of whiskey for the pur
pose of making revenue for the state.
Nor. of these things may be true or
they all may be true. but still the peo
vle believe them and are opposing the
dispensary and so far as results area
concerned in the coming election
they had as we? be true. .
Then there are those who con
scientiously believe that it is wrong
to sell whiskey as a beverage and will
vote for anything to secure prohibi
tion. Then there are t+hose who think
the principle is wrong and the state
should not be in the business. These
forces have combined and they will
poll a very large vote in this county
and the dispensary will be vote
when the election .comer^-T other
words a great' many people believe
-that the dispensary managdment has
r committed suicide.
The Herald&News has neve.r advo
cated proibition -by statute. It does
nct believ e' such a measure
would 'be practicable for a people
wvho 'consume three 'and a half million
dollars worth of dispensary whiskey a
year besides what is ordered f'or per
sonal use and for -blind tigers. It has
never believed the principle of the
dispetisary> was rigat However, in~
its practical operation. if it were car
ried out as' the law directs for the
purpose o'f regulating and controlling
the 'sale of whiskey and not for the
revenue, it would be a good solution.
But the people believe that is not
being done and the combination -now
formed against it will vote it out in
this county by a very large majority.
We would abolish the state institu
tion and the state constabulary and
let each county regulate the matter
under t'he options given in the consti
tution as it pleases, and whatever
plan was aQopted in a county would
h'ave sufficient public sentiment be
hind it to enforce the law.
If the present anti-dispensary sen
timent votes the dispensary out we
will have prohibition because there~
will be no legal mode of handling the
sale of whiskey. If this sentiment
was all prolhibition we might expect
to see the law enforced but being pro
hibition and high license sentiment
another fight will be on between
However, let there be a full and free
expression of the popular will and
we can all be guided and governed by
The revenue from the dispensary
should r:ut control, if you believe
you can reduce the consumption of
vdhiskey by voting the dispensary out
and better the morals and improve
the citizenship of the county. A few
more mills tax cannot be weighed
in the balance.
