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
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
