A story is told of Arthur Ualt'our's

which illustrates both his unpopular

prohibition were some of the notable
leaders of the republican party.
"This result shows that the proh
bition fad is passing never again to
become prominent in state polities.
Vermonters found, as . -ople il
everywhere, that prohibition so-called
does not prohibit that it merely
drives the liquor tratlic into hiding.
where it cannot be restrained and
breeds far worse evils than those
which over zealous, but worthy ami
sincere people, would eliminate from
the bodv politic. Tin- lesson of the
defeat of prohibition in Vermont
like that of its defeat in Jowa. should
impress the fact upon the public
mind that the cure of the evils which
row out of the Honor tratlic is not
in prohibition but in consei'vnt ivel v
dealing with them.
"lotva. tried prohibition and in tin
right spirit modified it. The Mulct
law may not be Ihe best that could
be devised, but its passage demon

with prohibition. Vermont has
show n a like spirit i n .snbst it lit inn
local option for prohibition. The
country is tmt yet ripe for sumptuary
leirislat ion. It is a fact that there is
more drunkenness in the states where
there hae been prohibitory laws en
acted than where local option laws
permit the people to decide whether
Ihe traffic shall be shut out or per
milted.. The passing of prohibition
invites the best ability of legislator?
of the several states in the enact
ment of wise and proper laws to re
strain the evil that is inseparable
from the saloon and to minimize it
without abolishing; the sale ot lnpior.
Of course actual prohibition will
never be had.
"Laws should be made with this
end in view without being oppressive.
The - student of sociology will find
here a wide field of endeavor. The
iiiblie must be educated rather than
forced into a recognition of the evil
both morally and physically, of the
excessive use of alcoholic beverages.

Ihe other evening the auctioneer put

Washington and held that up with the

Silence followed the conclusion of his

The Decline of Prohibition.
From the state of Iowa, which pre
sents as convincing an example a
could be conceived of the utter folly
and failure of prohibitory enactment
as a means of control of the liquor
trahie. comes through the columns of
the DuhiHiiie Tcleeraph the follow
"For many years Vermont Jiad pro
hibition, but as in all other states
where the tratlic in alcoholic liquors
was prohibited, the prohibitory law
5n the (ireen Mountain state was a
failure. Kealizing- that a prohibition
law that did not prohibit was only a
shelter for the sale of vile and dan
gerous concoctions which were con
sumed by many who sought alcoholic
beverage, the issue was squarely
made. The anti-prohibition republi
cans nominated a candidate for gov
ernor who ran as an independent. The
regular republican candidate ran tin a
prohibition platform. He was beaten
by a plurality larger than was ever
given against the regular republican
candidate. In the 'crusade against
miners, miners widows and children
have been a revelation to the People
f this prosperous republic. Tin
stones of poverty and oppression

inthr:wite fields, as the Springlield
Keiristcr sas. are eotial to those

tioiis should exist in I-ranee or in
I'ussia is not so ilitlicult to explain.
but. that such conditions should -
t right in the very birthplace al
most, of 1 lie iiinsl protrrt : ive. most
liisi. and mot powcrlul republic the
world has ever known, is almost be
yond explanation. Such conditions
are alone attributed to the existence
of a coal tru.it which is character
istic' of the other trusts now menac
ing this nation.
It seems only plausible that with
the prices of coal as high as they al
ways are there should pot be siif-
iicient profit to all concerned in mm
ing coal to enrich employer and em
ploye. There is no doubt that there
is siithcieiit profit. That those prolits
are not more justly and equally dis
tributed is only explained by the fact
that the coal barons have gobbled all
the profits and made industrial
slaves of the employes. The
profits have been large enough
to go around. but they were
not honestly distributed, the barons
have taken all to themselves and not
even given a reasonable pittance to
the suffering', half-starved miners.
The strike hearing has "gone suf
ficiently far to show what's what,
and who's who. The coal barons by
combining their interests have be
come tyrants ami stave drivers prac
tically, and there has been no law or
at least no enforcement of any law
to prevent this crime against labor.

Near the border which divides Sibe

vich, a country gentleman. His daugh
ter. Marya Alexandrovna, an attractive
girl of eighteen, was sought in mar
riage by uiany of the sons of the neigh

to prefer Ivan Mlkahailof, a lusty but
lazy young fellow who had never been
known to take an interest in but one

A battalion of troops came to the
town commanded by Major Nikolai Le
vin, a middle aged man whose private
fortune was large. From childhood he
had been accustomed to having his own
way. He had studied and practiced
the use of every known weapon, and
when any man stood in his way he
would insult him. challenge him and, if
necessary, kill him. All kinds of weap
ons had been tried against Levin, from
a Turkish scimiter to a mountain how

accepted his attentions, could not be

that with Ivan in the way he could
never win the girl, so he made up his
mind to kill him. He soon found a pre
text for considering himself insulted by
the young man and sent him a chal

and asked him to help her.
"Well, 1 will offer him my services.
and if he accepts them 1 will see what
I can do for him." said Sanin.
A few hours later Major Levin re
ceived a visit from Samn. "I am to
arrange this affair between you and
my friend Mikahailof." he said, "and.
since he is the challenged party, choose
for him the weapons, the time and the
place of meeting."
"That is your right. It is immaterial

and took his departure.
The ma lor submitted the case to the
otticcrs of his battalion, who. after long
deliberation, decided that he must ac
cept the terms. At the appointed time
he and his antagonist stood stark
naked in a large room, each armed
with a half inch nozzle. At a given
signal the water was turned on by the
seconds, and the contest begun. Ivan
had always lived in that northern re
gion, while the major had been born
in the south. Ivan was hardy, while
the ma ior was delicate and sensitive
from having led a luxurious life. At
the first stroke of the icy water he was
shaken by a terrific chill, while the
stur lv Ivan, who had bathed in water
ns cold that very morning, braced
himself against the chock and stood
upritrht and firm as a rock. One of the
seconds stood with a watch in his
hand, while the other kept a band on
the water cock. At the end of two
minutes time was called and the water
turned off. The principals were per
mitted to niove'about for two minutes
to recoup and break the ice forming
on their bodies, when they were re
quired to take their jiositions, and the
water was turned on. At the end of
the next round Levin was shivering
terribly, his skin was livid, and his
lips were blue, while his opponent had
readily restored circulation. At the
end of the next round the major was
Informed by those of his officers who
were present that he might give up the
unequal contest without sacrificing his
honor, and be declared that he was
satisfied. He was taken into a warm
room, dosed with hot liquor, rubbed
and put between blankets. Neverthe
less be was (stricken with pneuiuouia,
from which he nearly died. Ivan pol
ished himself with a crash towel, put
on his clothes and took a brisk walk.
Kostia Sanin went to Marya and
gave her nn account of what had oc
curred. "You are now free to marry
either of those men you choose. I pre
sume from your interest in Ivan that
your choice will fall on him."
"No; it will not fall on Ivan."
"Then it is the major."
"No, nor the major."
"Well, then, I should like to know
what all this trouble has been about."
