HOW WILL YOU VOTE?
The town council has submit
ted to the qualified voters, for
their decision tomorrow the ques
tion: "Shall Manning Surrender
Its Present Charter, And Be
Governed In Future By the Gen
eral Incorporation Act?" We
would publish the entire act but
we have not the requisite space to
spare, but in order to give the
voters an idea of what the gen- 1
eral incorporation act means we
reproduce those sections which
enlarge the powers

poration shall not be liable unless saidt
defect was occasioned by its neglect or
mismanagement: Provided, ~furtherC
Such person has not in any way br.ought1
about such injury or damage by hiorr
her own negligent act or negligenty
It will be seen from the sec- a
tions quoted that if the voters C
tomorrow decide in favor of sur
rendering the charter, council .
will have power to put in various
improvements. We regret that j
council did not have the incor
poration act published so the vot-t
ers would have had time to give1
due consideration to a matter of
grave importance to them, as it
is, very few understand the mean- Ii
ing of the act.1
Under .our present charter ft
there is no power to increase' i
taxes on property. nor has coun-t
cil the right to Iimpose a license Jl
upon trades, professions, or oth- i
er vocations, neither has it the '
power to grant any special priv- e
ilege-exclusive permits to oper- e
ate a business; council has no I
power to sell, lease or convey 1
any property belonging to the t
town, and its revenueis confined I
to a tax not exceeding two mil ls,
a commutation tax, fines, and
the proceeds from the dispensary,
wblih in all we estimate gives 1
the town an annual income of t
$7,500, thus it will be seen thet
lowers of council are confined to 1
t narrow limit. The matter of
waterworks is being agitated,
but with the present income we
-annot get a system of water
works that will give fire protec
tion to all of those who are called
upon to consent to this additional
power, it might give tire protec
tion for the business around the
square, but that would not be sat
isfactory nor just.
It is up to the voters to say to
aiorrow whether or not they are
willing to subject themselves to
Higher taxation, even as high as
ten mills, should council regard
.t necessary. It is also for the
roters to say whether or not
:hey are willing to empower
ouncil with the right to sell,
.ease, or convey the town's prop
rty and grant sole privileges to
tm individual, firm or corporation,
mnd thus protect those having
;uch privileges from competition.
the voters must also consider
hether or not they are willing
or a power to require, under
>enalty of punishment, a license
o conduct a store, ply a trade or
ractice a profession.
It is argued that without these
)owers progress is throttled,and
ndustries are kept away because
ouncil has no powers to grant
;pecial privileges, but that
hould not be regarded,the ques
ion resolves itself down to one
>f expediency, and appeals
traight to the judgement and
he purse; the owners of tenant
)roperty may feel that with in
reased taxation rents will ad
-ance, but the tenant class may
eel that higher property valua
ions mean higher rents without a
ommeasurable increase of wag
s, all these things are to be
onsidered, and every voter
hould turn out and record his
udgement. We have a popula
ion of about 1,600, and would
ncrease rapidly were it not for
he fact that there is very little
vailable property, the few own
ng same want fancy prices with
,old trimmings, and this pre
ents the town from filling up
nore than any other cause, in
>ur opinion. The question sub
aitted to us is different from one
>f preference between men, this
.ppeals to what we regard the
own's needs and welfare, and
his being so there ought not to
e any attempt made to influence
single vote, and let the ques
ion be decided upon its merits.
Congress is confronted with
ills looking towards giving aid
o the prohibitionists in their ef
orts to put put a stop to the
ale of intoxicating liquors.
hese bills are known as the
epburn-Dolliver bills, one in
he Senate, the other in the
ouse. The provisior.s of the
ills are to give the States right
o enact laws looking to the sup
>ression of ligour drinking and,
o seize all liquor in transit
thether the same be for private
se or not. The Interstate com
ierce law forbids interference
ith liquor while in transit from
ne State to another, and under
at law the States-have no right
o seize until after it has been de
tvered to the consignee. The
Iepburn-Doliver bills seek to
emove this obstacle for effective
rohibition, and in every comn
inity ladiet are securing signi
ares to petitions urging Con
ress to enact the bills into law.
~he activity and persistency of
be prohibitionists has aroused
pposition and strongly worded
etitions are being sent to Wash
2gton urging Congress not to
ive heed to those who wish to
ick the mote out of their broth
r's eye, or the self-constituted
egulators of other peoples mor
s when possibly they should do
s the ancient Jerusalemites
weep before their own doors.
One of the strongest worded
etitions for the -opposition to
be bills emanates fronm Edna
Fe~rn, a St. Louis authoress and
oetess, and we reproduce it be
ause there is much sound reas
ning in it that those who are ac
uainted with cosmopolitan life
ust recognize. This is what
he so forcibly says:
The undersigned beg leave to submit
petition against the passage of the
[epburn and Dolliver bills. The pas
ige of these bills would not only ena
le the State wherein we live to pre
ent uis from enjoying a glass of beer or
ine at our tables, but it would also
and to enstrange our husbands and
>ns from the'ir homes, and entice them
places hidden from the eyes of the
ublic and of the law, where we could
ot accompany them. We deem it our
ight to visit places of amusement and
ecreaton with our husbands and chil
ren, and we believe that no man has
e -right to go anywhere where he
annot take his wife'and children with
im. We deem it our right to select
efreshments that we consider whole
me for ourselves and those we love.
Ve believe we are better able to lead
ur children into the paths of virtue
nd true temperence by the precepts of
ur mothers than all the so-called tem
erance books in the country could do.
>rohibition tends to destroy family life
d happiness, deprives women as well
s men of their individual right to eat
ud drink what they like. leads to se
ret vices, allures husbands from their
ives and homes. We, therefore, pray
hat our national legislators will not
'ass the Hepburn and Dolliver bills,nor
ny other prohibition measure.
The population of cities is
ade up of people from every
ation. they bring with them
heir native customs, and when
t is sought to restrict them from
he enjoyment of the pleasures
red into their being,it is resented
e i t h righteous indignation.
Therefore it is easy to under
tand why prohibition has such
hard road to travel for success.

who thus gather are not drunk
ards, they belong to our fore
most citizenship; the fact of
gathering i n places where
their families can be with them
is an argument strongly put and
deserves due consideration. We
regard the petition of the Ger
man-Americans as presented by
Mrs. Fern an argument far
stronger than anything we have
read from either side on the sub.

It begins to look squally for
Senator Smoot, and while we
regard t h e investigation a
religious persecution, the testi
mony of President Smith is
affording those who want Smoot
anseated ample material for the
building of such a public senti
ent, that reason and law will
be lost sight of, and cause the
Senate of the United States to
give the lie to the promises in
the fundamental law--the guar
freedom. So far nothing has
been shown that Serator Smoot
has been guilty of polygamy, but,
on the other hand all of the
evidence so far adduced proves
him to have only one wife, and
that he obeys the law of the
land, that being the case, his
religious belief cannot be con -
sidered legally; just so long as
he breaks no law, we cannot
see how the man can be
lawfully unseated. Utah
was admitted to Statehood,and a
law was enacted to prohibit plu
ral mari'iages, it does strike us
that before Senator Smoot can
be ousted from the senate on the
charges brought, he would have
to be convicted of the crime.
Smith frankly admits that he
believes in plural marriages be
cause it was so revealed to him
by an angel in black; and his
five wives he lawfully married
before the law prohibiting plural
marriages was enacted; Ithe law
came along, found him tied to
five wives, and rather than break
his marriage vows he will take
his chances with the courts and
and suffer the penalties for vio
lating the law, but he will not
desert his wives-this is certain
ly to be admired in hini. The
nerve of the man who can live
with five women must be great;
it is such a man needed around
Port Arthur to do some deed of
daring-spike the muzzle of a
Russian cannon with his head
for instance, but what he swore
to was the truth so far as his
own conduct is concerned; it
matters not if Smith had revela
tions from a dozen angels in
black, and if he was married to a
dozen, or as many wives as King
Solomon is reputed to have had,
Smoot cannot be convicted unless
it can be proven he had commit
ted the criine,not in thought, but
in act or deed.
