Observer Closes His Argument. qu
Jennings, July 15, '02.
Mr. Editor: up
Please give me space once ge
Imore in your valuable paper. Bu
G Lest the license men think "Ob- nil
server" is vanquished, I willgive be
- them one more shot, and then re- At
tire from the field, as it seems ni
almost too dirty for respectable 'e
people to talk about. In thetirst Jul
place what is freedom that the Ob
aaloonists talk so much about. pe
"Observer" is not the one to de- yo
prive any one of freedom or lib- Ju,
erty, but in granting freedom to gil
others, I dislike to make a trap dii
for myself to call into asa drunk- no
en man is always tramping on OU
some ones toes. Besides you sh
say it is easy to get drinks, sa- the
loon or no saloon. If that is so Wa
let them take it home, and de- th'
vide with his family. Be as mi
good to them as he wants others ha
to be to him. If it is good for Al
him, it is good for his family. As th
far as keeping habitual drunk- dr
ards from buying drink at the th
saloon, I will just give you a lit- it
tle incident that came under my Si(
own observation a short time ago mi
(without looking for it either). Yt
A womuan was keeping a board- et:
ing house, to keep and educate th
her family, (a drunken husband yo
among the rest). She told sa- fu
loons not to sell liquor to Iher O0
husband, but he got drunk just sa
the same, and when she asked in
him where he got drinks. He Di
said, "Oh, it's easy to get." qt
Which saloon did you get it in? fa
I did not get it in any saloon, and se
have not been to any saloon. How vil
did you get it? Old woman, I've ou
got more friends than you have. th
Now look here, Will, if you don't d(
tell me I will have to call the po- yr
- lice. Welt then I got it in the be
I barn. But who gave it to you? th
SWell, you better ask the man that N
, runs the saloon." hi
Don't sell to drunkards? But of
they get drunk, and the saloon if
gets the money. Now a word as N
to its moral effects. I will give
you a conversation I had with a .":
man who had seen all the inside l
working of the so ctalled open sa
loon. I said t, hi nt. "s'ay Joinn,
Swhat do you think of this saloon
business? What do you want t.i1
know for Oharlhy?- Well John, I t
have seen a little, and heard so a
n many sides to it. I know you I
have seen the elephant, and you p
r are raising four tine boys. Now I
a I am persuaded that you would
as soon see the business stopped tl
so I would like t9) ask you a few g
"How do you manage to stay i
up in a saloon all night without o
e gambling? Ah, we have fun. a
But, Jack is it fun to sit there all tl
night drunk? You don't dare to v
e e noisy, the cops are too handy., h
Ah, but we don't stay there all w
s night, only till about ten o'clock.
e Tell me where do you go, I am p
t just dying to know? Well, Mr, a;
e Observer, seeing you have re- h
pented of your sius,I don't think
you will give me away, so I wiil
. just tell you. "vVe go to see the
o girls dance." But, Jack the or
p dinance says that lewd girls are! ti
r notallowed in town. Sute thing,
n Observer, but it don't say they t
u shall not be just out of town, and
i. there are always plenty of cabs y
U waiting near to take men where
they want to go. Say, Jack a I
s man told me that these girls were a
· handsome but they get drunk.
,r Ah, they are mostly pretty, but
s the matron does not like theem to
c- drink much. Now tell me. how t
ie they manage to get drunk when c
t- it is against the law to sell it out
y side of a licensed salootnY Oldi
"man you are very ignorant today.
You don't suppose that all pock
. ets are empty when they leave
;e thesaloon do you? Then Jack do
d you mean to say that the saloon
. furnishes drinks for those places? t
mr Oh, I see Observer, you arc anti
,t saloon, but I must say i; is true t
d in the main. One morequestion, z
le Does minors, young boys, fre
quent those places (houses of ill
i? fame)? I am sorry to say I have
id seen too many there. Do men o
w visit these places as a rule with.
re out taking a drink or two to tix
e. their conscience? May be so, I
't do not know. Now Jack, since
o- you go to such places would you
ie be willing to furnish material for
i? them ont of your own family?
at Now, old man you are hitting me
hard--but I say no, nor any part
at of it. Could those houses exist
)n if there were no saloons ordrink?
is No, I think not."
r'e As to the preachers, the,
a "kicker" spoke of, I am glad tol
e say they had to leave. Now, Las
L- !o blind tigers, my experience i:;
I, that we always got our drugs a:.
ii the open saloon, but that did nor
l eep us from taikng iLs many bot
1 ties as we choose with us. aZnd
u where we pleased to take them.
SI have seen two, men go to the
u polls drunk and vote for proti
I "Observer" believes that any
I thing that is good for the man is
gocod for his wifº and dr.nli.h6t-r".
So) I would like t,) aiLk sat~iLa.
YV whi.;h is the best way, "lTaki'
t our families and go to the saloon
1 and do like those who do .
: there, or shall we stay at hoire
0 with them as we have been in the
habit of doing?" Please answer
which is the best.
Moral: "Don't say do as you
I please." This settles it, as far
as "Observer" is concerned,oaly
he will hit you one on election.
