Madis-x, Wis.. April 4. The leading
Democrats of Madison generally have
strong'y defined views against making the
Bennett law an issue in the next state cam
paign, and yet if it is ma le an issue they
will almost to a man vote against the Re
publicans, who are responsible for its enact
ment Mayor M. R. Doyon is a notable ex
ception, and declares emphatically in favor
of tbe law. He was a Republican till a few
years ag- au I was elected by the Demo
crats to the mayoralty two years. He said:
"I am uot in favor of dragging the Bennett
law iuto tbe state campaign, but if it is in
truJed I shall vote for the Republican nomi

Other Milwaukee Opintor.
Ex-Puetiiiaster J. C. Gregory dowsnt want
to see the law made a state issue, but says
the law is a suuoe'ess oue Gsorge Rayiuer,
editor-in-chief of The Ma lison Democrat,
expressed fear that the victory in Milwaukee
would cause thi Democratic state conven
tion to take up the Bennett law as a state
issue. Whiie his pjp-r has editnriaily de
nounced the law & useie-w, Mr. Raymr be
lieves hi its n inciple. Ex-Mayor Bresej J.
Stevens said: "The Bennett law should not
be made a stAte issus though I cannot see
that it was either demanded or necessary."
C. K. Tcnev, lawyer and justice of the
peace, said: "It should cut no figure in state
politics. It is a mere side issue, and it is
nonsense to surest that if it figures in the
next campaign it will be a contest between
church and state.
ltemoeratft for the Law.
The Democrats of Manitowoc are prac
tically unanimous in favor of tbe Ben-n--tt
law. A di:Ti-rent result in Milwaukee
would cava been piewsiug to them, becau
in such an e.er.t, they argue, the party could
go into the tall campaign without the claim
of supproe.1 antagonism to the public
schooU. They feel that the issue apparently
imposed uyou the party by the Milwaukee
election misrepresents the puty of the state.
At Janesviilo the Democrats are opposed
to the law and tbe German Lutherans are
the leaders in the movement. Peck for gov
ernor and a pl&lforiu demanding repeal
will j-it suit the Democrats there.
At La Crosse tre opinions are as varied
as the persons asked for th -m. The R?pub"

Tbe Luth-.rans of Milwaukee are happy
over tbe result of their efforts in the niunic

afternon that of tbe S.W) voters among
tbe tier men Lurber&nsof the Hate at least
one-half are lu-publiean.s, and every one of
these will vote as did the Milwaukee Luther
ans on Tuesday. "We are going to be as
thoroughly organized," he continued,
throughout the state as we were this week
in Milwaukee. And, what is more, tbefiht
is to be taken up similarly in Illinois,
against tbe law of that state, and tbe issue

address -d a large meeting yesterday after
noon, his subject being "The Farmers' Col

evening a still larger pat her ing listened to
an address by tbe governor on "The Bennett
Law." Fie upheld the law in its entirety,
and promised to stand or fall with his I arty
upon tbe principle of the law. He took tbe
ground that the Bennett law was a safe con
servator of the interests of both the parent
and tbe child, and was of the utmost im
portance to the interests of the state. He
claimed that there were 40,0uu children
growing up who attended no school, and
said that tbey were purpos. lv kept in this
Scoring the townships in the state in

Bennett party, w ho, he said, were iutTested
in fostering ignorance to further their own
personal ends of money-making and wield

liberty in tbe country, while the other de
nominations saw no danger to religious free

Farxixgtox, Ma, April A The petti
coat crusadrs, led by Mrs. Williams, Mrs.
Foster, Mrs. James, and others, continued
their raid against the demon beer yesterday,
and not only destroyed a wagon load of that
wicked Quid, but struck terror to tbe hearts
of saloonkeepers and bartenders all over
town. Flushed with their victory of
Wednesday, the women arose yesterday
with a determination to sack every saloon in
sight Proceedings began with a prayer
meeting. Fully a scorn of women were in
attendance and as the meet ing progressed
their enthusiasm was wrought up to the
fighting pitch. Mrs. Jennie Foster was easi
ly the leading spirit, but Mrs 6. W. Will
lams. Mrs. William Odgers, Mrs. Finley,
and Mrs. Howard Jerrold were by no means
backward, and when tbe meeting closed the
women were ready for war, and with axes
and hatchets concealed under loo; cloaks
and shawls tbey sallied forth to clean out
The Saloons Harricailed.
Information of the contemplated raid had
reached the saloon Weers, however, and
they prepared to defend their places of busi
ness. Doors were promptly closed and
barred, barrels were rolled out and piled up
behind them, and in some cases even count
ers were pushed to tbe front to make the en
trances more secure. The women had not
counted on such thorough preparations, and
when their scouts brought back the news
that not a saloon was open, and that the
rumseilers had fortified themselves against
attacks, there was great disappointment in
the camp of the crusaders, and smie of tbem
shed tears of rage at being so easily out
witted. The Civ Was "On to Delassas."
But another consignment of beer was due
at Delassus, and they could and would de
stroy that Hiring three wagons the excited
women loaded themselves in without cere
mony, and as the procession marched out of
town amid the jeers and boots of small boys
and thirsty men and tbe cheers of the pro
hibitionists, tbe crusaders answered back
with temperance songs and moved forward
to their work of destruction.
"Tome Dowa Off Your Perch."
At 2 o'clock Do lass us was reached, and
there at the station, in plain sight of every
body, and as if defying the crusaders to do
their worst, stood a wagon-load of beer, the
property of the Klausman Brewing com
pany, of St Louis. "Come down off that
wagon!" shouted Mrs. Foster. "And be
quick about It, too." chorused her followers.
Henry Heineman, tbe driver, was inclined to
demur, but sober second thought convinced
him that the women were out for business,
and be clambered off the load and with a
heartfelt sigh witnessed the destruction of
the foamy beverage. Tbe women were bet
ter fixed than on Wednesday's raid and
went about their work more skilfully, so
that but few were drenched by tbe aiiiber
Prayer aad Praise aad Home.
When tbe women had finished their work
tbey assembled at the Methodist parsonage;
the church doors were opened, and the live
liest praise meeting ever held in Delassus be
gan. Prohibitionists were there to sing and
pray, and people who had not attended
church in years strolled in to see what would
be done next Then began the homeward
journey, and it was a triumphal progress.
Gray-haired and no-haired reform
ers cheered themselves hoarse, women
yelled like a house afire. Arrived
at Farmington, the women received the
welcome usually accorded to military he
roes on their return from successful wars
The saloonkeepers say they will kaep their
p'aces closed until tbe present frenzy is over.
The fever is now spreading and the women
of Fredericktown are holding meetings an I
making arrangements to w.pj out tbe :a
toons in that victnitv.
