TELLS HOW KANSAS HAS FLOURISHED Collier’s Nails Cam paign Lies About Dry State CITES CASE OF WICHITA Bank Gearings Al . most Quadrupled Since 1907 The crop of Booze lie* about Kan san la In full bloom again, whicn pioinpts Collier's, In its current edi tion, to take up the cudgels on be half of that much-maligned western ttate. The ‘'Montana Commercial and Labor League," under which name the liquor organization dis gulaee Itself In Montana, where there Is to be a rote on state-wide prohibi tion this fall, Is the particular ob ject of Collier’s attack. Collier's, it seems, sent a man to Kansas to write up the facts in 1911 He found that prohibition nail been a paying investment, but not wish ing to rely too much on ancient his tory, the magazine has doue it all over again, the information being gathered In 1915. Instead of a com parison, It found a contrast. first, quoting its 1911 editorial, It aays: Wichita, a few years a so. wan the ?tlbraltar of the saloon In Kansas ta saloons were running year* after the Kansas law’ went into effect. Deal* were made at state conven tions and nominations secured through promisee of open saloons for Wichita. The protest was long com ing, but It arrived, and. like many other reform movements of the day s arrived with momentum. A "dry mayor waa elected. Heavy penalties for violation of the law were exact ed. The saloons died hard, but final ly passed. Note the result. Bsfore the saloons closed, the bank clear ings of Wichita were »1.100.000 weekly. In three years they had In creased to something over $1,000,000. The city, Instead of golar backward as freely predicted, has stead! ty grown. A few years ago there were barely 10 per cent of the population of Wichita opposed to the saloon. Probably there are not now a very large minority of the population who would favor it. One newspaper changed from pro-saloon to antl aaloon. In six weeas Its circulation had Increased 1,019 copies. Mer chants declared that their collections Increased. Workmen were paying weekly for insurance. Before the saloons closed 40 per cent of these .Insured workmen were In arrears. Within a short time after the en forcement of the law these arrear ages had disappeared and many were paying in advance. Even than, Kansan we a a pretty good argument for prohibition, but .gee what Collier's has to say of the year recently closed: If we were writing our 1911 Wich ita editorial today we should have to pat the case more forcefully. The last year of Wichita’s saloons was 1907. when bank clearings were SSS.- #OO,OOO. For im they were 1156.134.- 000. Wichita’s tank deposits in 1907 were 17.4J0.921. In 1916 they were (In the same month) $17.04 8.009. Wichita’s property valuation In IsOA -—the year before the saloons closed —waa $21,998,290. In 1916 the prop erty valuation upon the asms beets was $74,462,849. Now, these figures go not prove that the property in a town Is bound to tie tripled (and the population nearly doubled) after nino dry years; but they do prove the stupidity of the argument that boose brings prosperity and that s dry community dries up. If the whisky people want to ar.que i.gainst prohibition, they <an hunt up some flaustble arguments for their ca*e; ut they'd better leave Kansas out These facta are printed. Collier’s aays, to call the atteutlon of the vot ors to the lies emanating from liquor campaign headquarters. This is what It has to say of dishonest ad yertlsing In this connection: Montana votes on the liquor ques tion next November, and Its newspa pers have been printing quarter-page advertisements of doleful prophecy financed by boos«. One such in the Missoula ’‘Mlssoulan.” paid for by tha “Montana Commercial and Leh<>r League." alleges, among other “start llag facta” that Kansas, a prohibi tion stata, is not among the eight States cited by the "World Almanac'' as “having tne largest mileage of Improved roads.” If Montana should go “dry." will Montana roads go "wet” and boeome Kansas “mud holes r MANY WESTERN ONTARIO MEN ARE WAR VETERANS OTTAWA, Ont., Jane 23. —The names of the following western On tario men appear tn casualty lists Issued by tbs militia department last night: Rilled In action—Private H.
