HUSINESS MEN'S ANTI LOCAL-OPTION LKAOUE.I
As to Local Option.
The advocates of Local Option are
keeping before the people, certain state
ments, intended not only to strengthen
their cause but to mislead the public re
garding the matter. A few facts may be
not only interesting but would serve to
throw some light upon the question
which has been heretofore given.
Fiust : It is a well known fact that
both Prohibition and Local Option,
wherever enacted into law, utterly failed
to produce the results intended y their
advocates, and we know of no State
which has tried either but is now advo
cating a repeal of these laws.
Sf.cond : Revenue produced by the
license for the sale of liquor is one of the
greatest in the State, and takes the bur
den of taxation from the citizens to a
greater extent than anv other means of
securing funds for defraying the ex
penses of the state, county and town
shin. Should this revenue be cut off bv
either Local Option or Prohibition, this
immense tax will fall upon the farmers
and property owners of the county. The
State will have no money to pay to
schools, hospitals or charitable institu
tions, only such as they receive from a
Tiiiitn : It is a notorious fact that
Local Option and Prohibition, instead of
cutting off the supply of intoxicants,
rather increase its use and sale illegally,
anu tnc injury clone to society is vastly
greater by an illegal sale of intoxicants
than by the same sale conducted under
the restrictions of the license granted by
the Court and sold in accordance with the
law. The cider product of Wayne coun
ty is one of tho greatest sources of in
come to many farmers ; apples that are
unfit for sale can be utilized in this way,
and much profit derived from tho sale of
such cider. Under either Prohibition or
Local option this source of profit would
be cut off entirely from the farmers, and
all apples unlit for market would remain
upon their hands, as a dead loss.
Assuming that so long as thero is a de
mand for intoxicants there will be a sup
ply, according to law, if permitted, but
illegally, if necessity requires it, we
sec no advantage to be gamed by even
the most ardent Prohibitionist or" Local
Optionist by enacting prohibition laws
against the sale of intoxicants.

Oct. '20th. The course of the new
management of Tun Citizkn must com
mend the paper to all Republicans in
Wayne county, having the welfare of the
party at heart. There is nothing uncer
tain or wavering in its support of the
candidates ami the parly principles, and
Democratic candidate are gixoit fair no-
lice that there is not the slightest possi
bility of compromise or quarter in polit
ical campaigns. And no one need to re
gard anything said in this connection as
relleuting in the least upon the letiring
editors, who have done splendid service
for the parly, but we are all looking for
better results from a 11101 e aggic-sho
and vigorous paity organ, with some
new blood, more capital, a better equip
ment and an earnest ile.-ireon thepaitof
all connected with the enterprise to place
Wayne county permanently in the lie
publican column, it may take a few
years, but it is worth working for.
As usual, the Democracy had us beaten
ill summer and until some time early in
October, but since the bout between the
President and .Mr. Bryan, things look
different. With Llovds offering odds of
0 to 1 on Taft, the result seems beyond
auv doubt. And vet the light will uol
be won until the polls close on Nov. !ld.
I'p to that time, every Republican voter
and worker should use every effort ti
have the full ole of the party polled.
Take nothing for gianted. Sympathy
and sentiment are good, money is a great
help, but votes coitiil. So far as the
National ticket i eonccnied, Pennsyl
vania will letaiu her proud portion li
the banner Slate for Republican 111:1-
joiities, bill Taft is not expected loieach
the half million innjoiiiy giwu fm Rno,-t
veil. Then the Democracy knew it was
beaten u hen Parker :b iioniimiled, and
the immense vole cast for Teddv was a
great tribute to his popularity.
No complex Stale ticket requites auv
attention this year, and that gives the
Committee more time to devote to tin
Congressional, Senatorial ami l.'epiescti
lative lights. Our district presents out
of the best possible candidates litis year,
and the Republicans should make
united effort to reverse the uiilorluuatc
lesnlt of two vents ago. Col. Pratt hi-
every qualification for mi ideal Congre.-s
man. His enemies are making desper
ate effoils to find something with which
to stem the tide setting his way, but lit
is gaining in strength every day. The old
Wilmot and Grow district must needs
have a Republican to represent it this
term, and Pratt looks good to us. Mr.
ivipp is said to devote a large poition of
his tune and inllueiice to securing pen
sions, and that is good so far as it goes,
but we need a Republican 111 t die'iess to
look after other interests as well, to as
sist in revising the tariff, in parsing cut
rency legislation, to control mid togulntc
corporations and in general to assist
President Taft in making tins country
greater and more prosperous. It would
be a big mistake not to send Col. Pratt
It is a source of gratification to note
that the local Republican ticket is giving
such general satisfaction in Wayne; it i
not olten we have a better one. And
this is true from the Legislative candi
date down to the County Auditor. Mr
Perhani has a strong platform. lie be
licves in Home Rule, which is a enrdi
mil principle 111 America. He ought ti
receive the vote of everv farmer in the
county, for there are verv few that arc
doing more for that class of people. .Mr.
Perhani is an active farmer, a man 0
experience 111 business matters, win
serveu me county wen anil laithlully as
Commissioner, and has made a clean
and honorable tight for the ofiice for
which he is asking support. He may not
erect any monuments todead people, but
he will look carefully to the interests o
the living, and that is quite as important
to us who are above the earth. It is
safe prophecy that his influence and vote
in the next Legislature will be woith
more to Wayne county than would those
of any Democrat that might be chosen
He should receive every Republican vote
in the county.

A Vote for A. 0. BLAKE foi
Register and Recorder will be a

Both Mr. Blake and his opponent
are men of Bethany, and stand
high in tho estimation of that
community. If the voters of
Bethany were to decido this con
test there would bo a tie, and a

to place a well-deserving man in
