The position of the Herald and
News on the dispensary question
seems not to be understood and vet
it has been stated a number of times,
and before the agitation for an elec
tion in this county. We favor the
abolition of the state dispensary and
necessarily the state constabulary
and leave it to each county to say
which system for dealing with this
question it prefers. within the re
strictions ,of the constitution of
course. There are only three ways
prohibition, dispensary and license
under the rules and regulations of the
dispensary law, rh.at is of local self
If that were done we would favor
the dispensary under thec ontrol of
the county. Let each county pur
chase its whiskey and take the profits
and be responsible for the enforce
ment of the law. Under such a svs
tem, we believe the evils of intemper
ance could be materially minimized
and we would have the profit ensuing
from the sale. But have the dispen
sary so run that the use of whiskey
might be minimized and that the
business be controlled and regulated.
In the election which is to take
place next Tuesday we have little
concern. Prohibition in our judg
ment will prove a failure even though
it should prevail and no law can be
enforced that is opposed by a large
minority of the community and
many who will vote against the dis
pensary are not in favor of prohibi
tion but are willing to do almost
anything to encompass the overthrow
of the dispensary.
Then there are those who say they
do not getr the revenue from the
sale of whiskey but when trhey come
-: to pay taxes they are going to raise
a kick. If by voting out the dispen
sary we should wipe out the evils of
intemperance we would mo..t heartily
support it. But if we are to have

miles, covered in twenty-three days
there was no accident and no delay
of consequence and no missing of

the perfect system which all the
large railway companies have fc
handling their busir.ess. The young
