Tbc Rlchland grand jury stacks up
its knowledge of health against that
of the State Board of Health and de
clares that rbe Board was wrong when
t? recommended some other kind of
employment for the state's? convicts
than thai provided in the hosiery mill.
That grand jury must have a very
high opinion of its own knowledge of
auch matters. Who ever heard of a
- grand jury with any knowledge of
the onuses and remedies for disease?
If one, just one. death occurs in that
hosiery mill as a result of the unsan
itary conditions there the blood of thai
poor nnd helpless convict will be on
each and every hand of those who
composed that grand jury. It was left
in their power to decide whether the
State's convicts were to he forced to
?work in an unhealthy atmosphere and
the decision was that they should. The
grand jury has imw shouldered all the
? ? ?
Nearly every day we read In the pa
pern whore somewhere a home, a barn
or n hoiffeo of some kind is destroyed
by lire. And then down further in the
same story wo see where it is staled
4hnl no Insurance or only partial in
surance is carried. And then per
haps we BOO It suggested that a list
be carried around to aid the unfor
tunate loser. Every time we see such
things noted in the newspapers, we
?wonder when will the time come that
people will think a little ahead of the
present nnd have their belongings pro
tected by insurance. We are not adver
tising insurance companies here, but
?we ?lo believe that the opportunities
which they offer for protection should
be taken advantage of by every own
er of property. The poorer a man is
the more Is the reason why ho should
have his property insured for if he has
a loss he would not then be obliged to
call on his neighbors to help him out.
A man who wilfully refuses to take
ont insurance and then suffers a loss
by fire does not deserve any sympathy
from his neighbors nor has ho any
right to call on them for belt).

I DOES PROHIBITION INHIBIT? "
I CALIFORNIA- -KANSAS
Some Facts About Both
There are a hulf million young men
and women in Kansas over 21 years
of nge who have never seen a snloon
in that state.
There Is not a Kansas newspaper
whloh publishes a liquor advertise
One-third of the eountics of Kansas
have not a prisoner in their jails nor
n pauper in their poorhouses.
One-half of the counties of Kansas
did not send a convict to the peniten
tiary last year.
Kansas stands llrst in the per capita
valuation of assessed property.
in a recont speech Judge McUaniel
gave the following tlgures: live hun
dred criminals In Kansas state pris
ons-, 3,500 in California state prisons;
GOU insane persons in the asylums of
Kansas, G000 In thb asylums of Cal
ifornia. About the same population
and about the same wealth In the two
states?one dry, the other wet. Seven
times as many criminals and 10 times
as many lunatics in the wet state as
in the dry. And this does not Include
the lunatics in California who believe
the abolishment of saloons will ruin
A resident of California, who recent
ly traversed the state of Kansas, says
thai this story is not overdrawn, that
in addition to the Inmates in the asy
lums that there are 4,000 lunatics In
private snnltorlums In California.
Taking the City of Bakersfteld, Cal
ifornia, with 25,000 people, OH saloons,
with lots of restaurants serving drinks
with about an average of -<>0 in jail.
The jail bill for dieting was $I1C.">.00
for one month this year. A year or
more ago Bakersfteld elected a mayor
who had enough civic virtue to under
take to reform this city. His efforts
brought into the llghst nn element with
certain facts atid truths that ought
to be known to all men and women,
that are struggling to rid the earth of
the curse of liquor, (Although these
conditions exist In every community,
more or less), to wit: Northern capi
talists hnve Immense holdings at this
place, as they do all over the Pacific
('oast. And wheroevor they have gone
thoy have carried their develish so
cial influences, Wherever the hench
men of these moneyed nabobs light
down, as they have done in the great
oil tields around Bakersfield, working
with great salaries, they k<> to work
to surround themselves with all the
concomitants and phuraphcrnnlia of
vice dissolution, reverly and debauch
ery. The saloon must always bo In
reach, wine, women, music, vaudeville,
gambling, divorce suits. Some of these
men and women have been married
till they can no longer marry under
the law. /
These milllonarles/ with the liquor
powor direct (It Is always on hand to
fight prohibition or restriction) went
Into it and defeated the mayor, using
corruptlve funds and importing voters.
Now vice and immorality have full
swing. This is wickedness In high
The enemies of temperance in the
South have labored in vain to make the
people believe that the fight for bet
ter things?for closing the saloon?is
Of Northern origin, they have called
it a "Yankee hoax" "or heresy", then
remembering that the liquor Is manu
factured North, and in order to extri
cate themselves, they proclaim that
the liquor men can sell more where
prohibition prevails than where It
doesn't. Then again they find them
selves confronted with the undeniable
truth that In every fight against the
sale of liquor, this same greedy, un
godly and conscienceless liquor power
Is found with its ill-gotten money.
No prohibition is in reality a South
ern product. Wickedness in high plac
es amongst olllcials, low saloon poli
tics, aggregated corruption, assisted
by a few good but mistaken men in
Birmingham, Montgomery and Mobile
and the wicked cities on the gulf may
hinder or defeat state-wide prohibition
In these states, the pejiicious and
farreaching iniluence of Atlanta? Sa
vannah. Mobile and Augusta may bring
some seeming reaction In Georgia, but
thank the Lord there Is enough civic
virtue remaining In the boundless
areas of the rural districts and smal
ler towns in these, and South Carolina,
Tennessee, North Carolina, Mississippi
Oklahoma and others to forever put a
hau upon the trarc. The gentleman
who gave us facts about California
and Kansas drew a vivid contrast In
conditions in the twin cities of Kan
sas City, Missouri and Kansas City,
Kansas, now under one municipal gov
ernment. Kansas City. Kansas under
prohibition: Kansas City, Missouri,
with the open saloon with only the riv
er between. In the first the saloons?
200?were put out in forty-eight hours,
three years ago. This by reason of
having got men in the law' depart
ment of the State that had the nerve
and virtue to enforce the law. Here
order reigns. In the last the saloons
and dives have been forced on one
street. Here on any night may be wit
nessed the wild orgies of pandomonian
Not a night without a murder or some
These things exist to meet the de
mands of saloon politics, depraved ap
petites, low vices and sordid wretched
ness, encouraged and permitted by
wickedness in high places.
OUR IMPORTS OF COTTON. *
It seems strange to see the greatest
cotton producing country of tne world
bringing raw cotton half way around
the gloho and importing it for use in
h?>r own manufacturing Industries. It
is nevertheless a fact thai the I'nited
States. which produces pVactieally
two-thirds of the world's cotton,
brought front China during the last
fiscal year (Hill) mori than 9 million
pounds of raw cotton, at a cost In that
country of more than 1 million dol
lars and from India in 1910 about 5 1-2
million pounds, at a valuation of more
than a half million dollars. Other
distant sections of the world were al
so drawn upon?Peru, 4 3-4 million
pounds in 1911; Dutch East Indies, In
1909, nearly a half million pounds;
Haiti in 1911, nearly a half million
pounds, while other contributors in
clude Venezuela, Ecuador, British
West Indies, Snnto Domingo, Mexico,
Panama, Nlcaraugua and Costa Rica,
while from Egypt, the chief source of
supply of long stnpled, high grade
cotton, tho Imports In 1911 were lnrg
er than In any earlier year, amount
ing to 88 million pounds. In addition
to this there was Imported from Eng
land about 7 1-2 million pounds, pre
sumably chiefly East Indian, Egyptian
and West African, since England, of
course, produces no cotton. Raw cot
ton Importations in 1911 were larger
than In any earlier year, amounting
to 113,763,313 pounds, valued at |24,
High prices of domestic cotton are
the canst! of the large Increase in im
portation of cotton, especially that
from China and India. The quantity
of cotton Imported from China never
reached a quarter of a million pounds
prior to 1008, and in 1909 was prac
tically i 1-2 million pounds, In 1910
4 1-2 million and In 1911, 9 million
pounds. From India eht quantity Im
ported seldom reached a half million
pounds prior to 1908, in which year
the total was over three-quarters of a
million pounds; In 1910, 5 1-2 millions
and in 1911, 2 1-3 millions. The Chi
nose and Indian cottons are as a rule
of shorter staple than that of the
I'nlted States, and as a consequence
are rated at a somewhat lower price
In tho world's markets, a fact which
accounts for the large growth in the
importation of these cottons in the
recent years in which American cot
ton has commanded exceptionally high
prices. On the other hand, Egyptian
cotton which is of longer staple, high
er quality, and therefore higher in
price than that of the United States,
still forms a large proportion of the
imports, the quantity Imported direct
from Egypt in 1911 being ?S million
pounds out of a total 114 million
pounds imported in that year, and its
value 20 1-2 milllan dollars, out of the
24 3-4 million dollars worth of cotton
Cotton Importation has shown a
steady if not rapid growth, especially
during the last 10 years. Prior to the
Civil War the quantity imported sel
dom reached more than 1 million
pounds per annum. During the war
the quantity Imported was quite large,
ranging as high as 3G million pounds
in 1865. but dropping to G million
pounds in 18G6 and less than 1 mil
lion In 1867. By 1870 the total impor
tation of cotton was 1 2-3 million
pounds; in 1880, 3 1-2 millions; in 1890
812 millions; in 1900, 07 millions; In
1910, 86 millions and In 1911, 113 3-4
