Traveling Men for Prohibition.
Special to Toe Tribune.
Lincoln. Neb. , July 2U. A traveling mi
who has made nearly two-thirds of the cou
ties south of the Flatte in Nebraska durii
the lost sixty days , reached Lincoln , Mondi
morning. He states that eeven-tenthi of i
commercial travelers he has met since t !
Amendment campaign started , are In favor
the Prohibitory Amendment. He states ittt
way : "Anybody but the commonest kind '
a chump must see that if Prohibition carric
collections will bo better. Laborers , mecba
ics and many farmers will pay more cash f <
necessaries and the saloons will send le
money out of the state for liquor. Lumb
men will sell to men who never before owni
the roofs over their heads , and the women ai
babies will wear clothes that will set the who
neighborhood to staring. Talkaboutinjurit
tradel It will give every decent business
boom. The butcher will sell good meat to tt
men who have been buying cheap liver ; tt
grocer will sell costly canned goods to me
whose families have lived without "sauce" c
the table half the time ; and the clothing me
chant but what's the use to take your va
uable time ? I have met scores of the moi
enthusiastic traveling men you ever beard <
who are doing more for th6 Amendment tha
twenty ordinary lecturers. It will be million
of money in the pockets of Nebraska me
chants if the trade-sapping saloons are drive
from the state. "
Smith and Huckins are into a great revivi
at Wymoro with their big tent. Over a thoui
and people came night after night to bear th
speeches and cheer the songs. These me
have never been a dead-weight on the con
mittee , but so satisfactory has their work bee
among the people , that tho matter ot finance
has given no trouble. Half a dozen such ten
teams would create a whirlwind of Amend
ment sentiment and insure the adoption of Pre
hibition. The Independent Peoples' Convei
tion of York county adopted a resolution i :
favor of the Prohibitory Amendment.
The Swedish Non-Partisan Prohibition Com
mittee will begin an extensive tent campaigi
at Holdredge , Aug. 5 , and go from ther
through Kearney , Hamilton , Fillmore , Polk
Saunders , Burt and Douglas counties. The ;

Major E. T. Scett and wife are doing splen
did Amendment service under the manage
ment of the Prohibition State Central Commit
Complaint reaches this office daily in regan
to tho neglect of the Amendment work in tin
country districts. This is a fatal mistake am
every committeeman , worker , or friend of the
cause should insist that the county canvasses
should be made iu systematic order. Tlious
anils of able home workers should take up this
battle. The agents of tho liquor dealers arc
already planning a gudgeon-catching cam
paigu among the farmers. It would bo ji
crime against humanity to allow them to sue
ceod in deceiving and tricking the people.
Let every worker make this a personal matter
iind invade the country. If the battle is press
ed steadily and aggressively for the next
ninety days prohibition will sweep the state
by a handsome mojority. But every man and
ivoman must work as though the eutire bur-
len rested on their shoulders.

The tolk who lived in Shakspere's day
And saw that gentle figure pass
By London Bridge , his frequent way ,
They little knew what man lie was !
The pointed beard , the courteous mein ,
The equal port to high and low ,
All this they saw or might have seen
But not the light behind the brow !
The doublet's modest gray or brown ,
The slender sword-hilt's plain device ,
What sign had these for prince or clown ?
Few turned , or none , to scan him twice.
Yet't was the king of England's kings !
The rest with all their pomps and trains
Are mouldered , half-remembered tilings
'T is he alone that lives and reigns !
