Liquor Doalers Send a Circular
- Letter to the Statesmen at
TZEY ARGUE AGAINST THE MOVE
Prohibitionist Stewart Gets One of the
Letters Convict Labor To Be
Considered Also (Civil
Springfield. Ills., March 2. The
local option bill of the Illinois Anti
Saloon League is to be taken up in
the senate committee on license this
week.- The -ommittee is to hold a
meeting Wednesday, and friends of
the measure are to be heard during
the afternoon. A week later the op
ponents of the bill will be given a
hearing. The bill is before the elec
tions committee In the house, and it
will also come up in that body this
week. If it is possible to do so a
joint meeting of the committees will
be held for the purpose of consider
ing the bill. -
Opponents of the Bill Get Busy,
The members of the Anti-Saloon
League, churches and civic organiza
tion of various sorts have been lom
barding the members of the assembly
for several weeks with petitions in be
half of the bill, but up to the pres
ent time the opponents of the meas
ure have shown but little activity In
this direction. Recently, however, the
meinebrs have received the following
communication from Henry V. Mal
wauerm. secretary of the Liquor
Dealers Protective association:
Keeping Watch on the Solon. .
"Dear Sir The .liquor dealers' asso
ciations, numbering nearly 4,(HX) mem-
bers, are closly watching the action of
the present legislature in regard to
the legal option bill, recently intro
duced by th. Anti-Saloon League. At

district. ;Tt which a liirge number of
your constituents were present. It was
the general opinion thst yon would
oppose the passage of 'this' bill, and
we have every reason to feel confi
dent of your supiKjrt in this direction.
Givea at "Horrible Example."
"The passage of the local option bill
means the closing of many saloons
In your district and consequently the
loss of n large revenue derived there
form to the city ef Chicago, without
any corresponding benefit. The ex
perience in rll parts of the country
is that the closing of the legitimate
licensed saloon does not stop the use
of liquor, but causes the opening of
'blind pigs. 'holes in the wall.' and
other secret places where liquor Is
sold, and the turning of the drug
stores into sn.'oous. without any finan
cial benefit to the city or town, as for
instance, Hyde Park."

And Sends It to the Prohibition Solon

The letter then goes on to say that
as a rule the condition of the city or
town without a saloon Is inlluately
worse than the one that licenses and
regulates the place where liquor Is
sold. And adds: "Local option means
prohibiting, and it is only in the last
few days that after fifty years of pro
hibition the state sof Vermont has
voted to license saloons: and as one of
ner leaning statesman aptlv said: 'Pro
hibition to Vermont meant fifty years
of bribery, fifty years of - corruption,
fifty years of blackmail, fifty vears of
plunder, fifty years of extortion, fifty
years of . drunkenness,' iifty years of

on Illinois a curse. This is what prohi

QUESTION OF CONVICT LABOR
Committee Which Hm It In Charge Going
to Work Thereon.
Springfield, Ills., March 2. The suu-
committee of the Joint committee on
penal institutions and labor and in
dustrial affairs which has in charge the
matter of preparing a convict lalor
hill will meet tomorrow to enter upon
its work. The legislative committee
of the Federation of Labor of Chicago
will go present, but there will lo no
formal hearing, as the committee has
already expressed itself in relation to
its wishes. The members expect to
put in the greater part of their time
in the Interest of the bill to remove
or raise the limit of death damages and
the fellow servant bill.
The railroad committee of the house
will hold a meeting this week and it
is understood that it has praetially
agreetl to report witn lavoraine recom
mendation the bill placing electric rail
ways under the control of the railroad
and warehouse commission. Under this
act the electric roads will be required
to go before the board to secure cross
ings over steam roads.
Representatives of electric lines are
protesting against this on the ground
that recent decisions of the board re-
quiringrailroads to elevate their tracks
when crossing another road would pre
vent th construction of many Interur
ban Hues if applied generally.
During this week twenty sub-corn
mittees which were appointed by the
appropriations committee to look into
the needs of the various state institu
tlons will report to the main commit
tee. This body is pushing its work as
rapidly as possible and it expects to
begin the compilation of the omnibus
appropriation bills within a short time.

TO AVOID ERRORS
New System of Checking Freight
at Local Burlington
EVERY TED OK LOAD KEC0ED1 D
Is Proving Effective In Reducing
Number of "Overs' and.
During the past few t!ays a new sys
tem of checking freight in 'the local
Ibirlinglon depot has irone into ef
fect, the aim of which corresponds
with other regulations that have been
placed ii operation recently to rem
edy the vast number of 'overs" and
"shorts" that have given so much
trouble in the past. The system in
troduced here is used at but two
places on the system, at Ibirlington
and (Jalesbnrg, and is used on the
Ibirlington road alone.
Instead of the. regular numbers of
the cars being; used in loading-, each
car is given a number according to
the town it goes to, the number of a
given place being the same here all
the time. In -each car is placed a
stamp, and each trucker as he takes
a load to it stamps his ticket and
turns it over to the check clerk. If n
mistake is made in the car the tick
et will show it and it can be remedied
Used in Receivlnr Also.
The same system is used in dis
tributing incoming freight, the
freight house being divided up into
parts and known by letter, and the
trucker deposits his load in a gien
section stamping his ticket with the
stamp of the department. The tick
ets turned over to the agent at night
furnish an easy method of tracing
mistakes should any still be made.
The new plan is in high favor here
and already an improvement in the
accuracy in receiving and dispatching
freight is noted.
A somewhat similar system will be
introduced in the local Rock Island
SIXTEEN YEARS OF CATARRH
Well Known Maaaachuaetta Woman Cured
How to cure catarrh has been a
problem in medicine for many years
that was not solved until the discov
ery of Hvomei. This remarkable treat
ment makes it possible for anyone to
breathe in an air at home which
almost identical with that of the Adi-
rondacks, the l.arolinas or otlier
health resorts where the air is im
pregnated with laling balsams from
health-giving trees ami plants.
Simply place a little, lfyotnei in the
inhaler which comes with every out
fit, breathe it occasionally during the
day and benefit will be seen from its
use for only two or three, times, while
perseverance for a few days or weeks
will effect a complete cure of even
the worst case of catarrh.
Mrs. Elvira E. i. (iibson, who holds
a responsible position in the great
dry goods stori of Jordan, Marsh &
Co., of lloston, wrote in April: "1 had
catarrh for "0 jears, and the last 10

Tortures, Cripples and Deforms.
Rheumatism does not treat all alike.
Some suffer torture from the very begin
ning, the attack being so sudden, sharp
and disastrous that they are made help
less cripples in a few days, while others,
feel only occasional twitches of pain in
the knees, ankles, elbows and wrists, or
the muscles of the legs, arms, back or
neck ; but this treacherous disease is only
traveling by slower stages. The acid
poisons are All the while accumulating in
the blood, and muscles and joints are
filling with corroding, acrid matter, and
when the disease tightens its grip and
strikes with full
force, no constitu
tion is strong enough
to withstand its fear
ful blows, and its vic
tims are crippled and
deformed, of literally
worn out by constant
pain. Rheumatism is
caused by Uric Acid
or some oilier irri
tating poison in the
blood, and this is the cause of every va
riety and form oif this dread disease. Ex
ternal remedies do not, reach the blood,
consequently do no lasting good.
S. S. S. goes directly into the circula
tion and attacks pit disrg itself. The
acid poisons that'ca'uselhc inflammation,
soreness aad swelling are neutralized arid
the blood purified and cleansed of all irri
tating matter, and nothing is left in the
circulation to pro
duce other attacks.
S. S. S. being a vege
table remedy does
not impair the diges
tion or general health
ike alkaliand potash remedies, but builds
up and invigorates the entire system, and
at the same time makes a thorough and
permanent cure of Rheumatism.
