Reprntulltln Fuller Tells flow It Works lu Lewiston. Lewiston, Deoember 88 —Bennett B. Fuller, a member-elect of the Maine legislature from Anburn, publishes a letter this evening In regard to the ques | tlon ot the retnbmleelon of tbe prohlbl I tory amendment to the oonetltntton to ■ the people, In whloh he makes some statements which have caused consider able excitement in this city. Mr. Fuller says In part: “Next comes tbe liquor question, wblob Is a tough one and one wbloh many men will not pnb llcly disease for fear If they give tbelr honeet views their reputation may be somewhat at stake,', bnt I shall hazard my reputation. It need be, to give my honest opnlon. “From 1878 to 1888 1 was abient from the state, bat tor cne past 12 years I have resided In Auburn and had an ollioe on the corner of Fine and Lisbon streets, Lewiston, near thi police station, and as my business has kept me on the streets more than in my office, 1 have had a favorable opportunity to observe tbe workings ot tbe prohibitory law In Lew iston, and 1 wish It understood that what 1 say applies to Lewiston only, but I know of no reason why It should not ap ply to any city In the state, and I must honestly confess that ontside of some ot the frontier mining towns I hare never seen more drunkenness In any plaoi not withstanding many people maintain the oontrary Is tbe fact. “It Is now generally coneeded that there are at least 180 plaoes In Lewiston where Intoxicants are sold, anl I do not believe there has been a day for the east twelve yean but there have b eujat least ffity places where liquor oould be ob tained, end I think It is fair to presume If In a olty tbe slse of Lewiston liquor oan be obtained in fifty plaoes uot much more would he drank If It could be ob tained In ISO plaoes, and If tbe above le true all of the thousands of dollars wbloh our oooilly has paid for the entoroemmt of tbi law are worse than thrown away and the only thing the spilling has ac complished Is that Its has given the inan ufaotnmr so mnob more to make and tbe wholeealtn opportunity to sell Jio much more. “Uenoe, tbs final result ts the same as if this country had paid these thonfanda of dollars to have the same amount of | gacaiii uobwujpu tuau tv nuuiu kiao w | make tbls liquor. Some may cay the moral effect la good, but I thins tbe effect la very demoralizing, ae the entile transaction from beglnn'ng to end la thoroughly oorrupt. “Every few year* a move le made, and we are told that the law will be boneetly enforced and the rum ahoDe closed, and the good people of Maim have been waiting and wutohlng, Uod only knows bow anxiously, for the fultllmeht of that promise, but In vain. “1 presume I may be misunderstood, but 1 think no pereon oan doubt the sin cere desire of every man to have the pro hibitory law enforced If euoh a thing Is possible. “As to resnbmlsalon. I have never felt quite sure of the wisdom of adopting nro hlbltlon In the constitution, and I oan sae no objection to lta resubmittal. We are told tbat the people are overwhelm ingly In favor of retaining It, and If ao no harm oan come of It, aud It would put a quietus on those who are continually demanding It.’" LlgUOU SEIZURES. Yesterday Deputy Marshal Cbenery made a seizure of some ale at James A Conwell s placs at No. 4 Spring street. Ue also made a seizure on Saturday night at No. 11 Newbury street, the pro prietor’s name being unknown to tbe polloe. "About Uve years ago 1 was troubled wltb catarrh of the lower bowel,” says C. T. Chisholm, 481 Dearborn Ave., Chicago “and, although 1 oonsulted sev eral eminent physlolans who prescribed for me, 1 found their remedies failed to In any way relieve me, and tbe trouble almost became obronto. After suffering several months, 1 one day ooncluded to try Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy, and I beg to assure you tbat I was most agreeably surprised to llnd after taking two doses of the remedy that I was completely relieved of the disease that bad cost me so muoh trouble and annoyance, I am tbankrul to say I have not suffered from It sinoe.'
