Tlio IIdqistuk telegraph columns have ulroady rcportodbriolly thojpas sago of tho now army bill and noted that it contained u islauso absolutely prohibiting tho salo of intoxicants of any kind at tho army canteen. Tho special correspondent of tho Olobo Democrat at Washington adds somo interesting details, shown tho prom inent part taken in this notable vic tory for temperanco by the Congress man for tho Second Kansas district. Tho dispatch to thu Globo Democrat reads :ii follows: Washington, D. (;., (Dec. 0 Uy it voto of ,1 to 1 tho "lloworsook nntl canteen bill," us it was commonly called (luring tho last session, went into the army reorganisation measure, which subsequently passed the House. V session lasting until after dark and. two roll calls wore iieeessary to settlo tho question, which vas something of an issue during tho last campaign. News of the result was recoiled by the National convention of tho W. C. T. U., in session here, with strong manifestations of satisfaction. Mr. Howorsock of Kansas, intiodueed tho canteen bill early last sossion and nursed it until adjournment for tho icocss. Petitions praying for the passage of tho bill camofrom all paits of tho Union in such numbers us to iittost4ho widespread interest in the proposition. Tim provisions wore drafted to satisfy sentiment opposed totho salo of alcholiolie drinks on mili tary leservations. Mr. liowcrsock endeavored to secure action at tho last session, but his bill was one of many svhich woro shoved oer to tho shott session. Tills afternoon Mr. Llttlcllcld, of Malno, who bus shaied with Mr. Bowersock interest in tho legislation, offered tho bill nearly in tho original form as a part of the army reorgani zation measure. There was some thing of a sensation. When tho roll was demanded it icsulted in fewer than sl.sty Representatives going on record against tho amendment. The Fifty-fifth Congresh passed u pro vision, which, it was supposed, would prevent tho dispensation of liquor at -army canteens; but It was so constiued by tho War Department and by tho Attorney General as to be totally in tellective. .Mr. Bowersock put In plain words svliut tlio temperance people wanted to accomplish, and Mr. Littlelleld adJed a Jittlo legal phraseology calculated to TnuVr tho piohlbitlou fu!l. piohihlt. In Oils form tho amendment went through, and by such a oto as indi cates that it will stay in the bill. The legislation is of popular intetest. A controversy cm tlio merits of the uimy canteen has been going on for yen. An interesting incident of the d.ij vas the appearance of l!epiesontntio liowcrsock befoic tlioW. I .T. I'. con vention u slioit tiuiepioviomtothovoto in the House. Mr lioweisooKwas intio luoed to tho ladies and was received with enthusiasm, flu spoke of his bill und tho ofloits iniidu to obtain action on it. Ho bpoko at some length of the work of tho W. C. T. U. and congrat ulated tho ladles upon the lino appear ance of tho conveutlon. Tho Kansas Congressman was applauded vigor ously. l'llOIIIIUTIOX IN TOI'BKA. It is probablj safe to suy thai To peka is the onlj largo city now to inaiulug in tho Stale where anj etlort is being made to enforce the prohibi tory law. In all the other big towns, mid in man) that aio not so big, tlune is no longer any pietense of enforce ment, and what were once "joints,'' bidden away and operated b. stealth, have become to all Intents and pur poses licensed saloons, doing business openly and with no one to molest them and make them nfiatd.

Thero havo been men just as anxious to vlolato it thoro aselsowhcro, and tlioy havo been defeated only by constatil'vlgtlanco on tlio part of tho good citizens who, whatever their individual sentiments on tlio question of prohibition) havo yet stood by tho simple and unanswer able proposition that so long as a law remains on tho, statute books it should bo enforced. Tho contest has been a long ono, and it is not over yet. Ulghl now tho forces of law and order aro confronted with a situation as grave as any with which tlioy havo yet had to contend, and tlioy havo need of all tho wisdom and courago tlioy can command. They have need too of tho encouragement that may come from tho knowledge) that tholr efforts aro boj Ing noted with Intcrost ami sympathy by many friends of temperanco outside of Topeka. As a mattei of fact, It is not only with interest and sympathy that their ullorts mo being noted, but one might almost say with appiohensloii also. For if the struggle Is given up in To peka, the question may well bo asked, What ttso to continue it elsewhere? If the law cannot bo enforced In the capi tal of the State, whoro public sentiment is known to sttongly favor it, where thatsentimcntlliidsconstantexptcssiou through thocoltiumsof tho leadlngduily paper of the State, where the counsel and the power of the executive olllcers of the State may bo always available and wheio tlio State Temperance Union has its headquarters, then It will certainly avail little to attempt its cnfoi cement elsewhete. This Is tho situation as every candid friend of tho law outside of Topeka lows it. And it is becnuse tills is the situation, be cause tho light they aro making is not onlj to keep thelrownelty clean and decent, but also to save prohibition to tlio State, that tho bravo men who aro leading the contest at Topeka should luuo and do have the heartfelt sympa thy of every man and woman who be lieves that the law is just and righteous and should bo obeyed. surrosK we swkak okf. After all it ought not to be forgot ten that tliere would bo no troublo aboul enforcing the prohibitory law if tliete were nobody to patronize tho joints. The Rwsistkk knows a mon who would really llko a glass of beer once in awhile, and when lie Is in Mis souri ho boiietlines takes one. Hut lie has never bought a drop lu Kan sas since tho prohibitory law-went Into ellect, for tho simple leasou that ho did not think it was the part of a loyal and law-abiding cltlen to tempt nn other man, or connlvo with another man to bieak tho law. And that is the III! :sti:u'.s idea of good citizen ship. Nobody who pretend-, at all to he a good citizen would think for a moment til helping a thief to break tho law prohibiting larcen.v lv con cealing the things stolen until thoj could lio safely disposed of: then why should a good citizen help a man to break the law prohibiting the sale of beer' If tbeie was nobody to buy liquor the jointlst would 'o out of business mighty quick; and then there would be no "temperance crank" to worry' the people, and no big taxes to pay for a giand jury, and the coun ty attorney could bo elected two terms in succession, und thero would be no wounds without cause, and no ragged children and no unhappy women to speak of. To bo sine tho police judge would have pietty thin picking, but he would woiry along somehow. Is only u littlo while now until the Xew Year and tho New Century. Supposo we all swear oil and get rid of this everlasting joint question! OP course wo uovi r let on among strangers that it is anything else than tlio predestined and foreordained ar rangcnieut of things; but right heio among ourselves wo can't help an ex pression of Mirpiino once in awhile at the legtilurlty and persistency with which tlio man from Kansas bobs up.

For Shooting Into a Train. Tho preliminary hearing of Mal colm Bliss, tho young man who con fessed in order to clear tho two boys, Arthur Olllver and Ed Smith from all complicity in tho blumo, was held bo fmo justice Gard Saturday Hliss llred a load of shot into tho io ceding north bound passenger train Thanksgiving day. The shot did littlo damage but tho company feels that such practices should bo suppressed. Afterwards tho samo boy emptied u band into a south-bound freight, out of puro boyish wantonness. Quickly captured tho boys wore ex amined at tho timo and Hliss honor ably and honestly cleared his com panions. Several Santa Fe trainmen were here to attend tho trial and In vlow of miss's confession and tho fact that tho cuso must go to tho district court, tho uso of the prelimi nary is questionable. The charge In cludes tresspass, wounding passengers and several other vaguo things. The law provides a penitentiary sentence, but owing to the'youthfulness of Hliss, about 17 years, tho reform school would bo substituted. While nobody wishes to condone the oHense theio Is a goneral sentiment In town that a se vere reprimand would bo siitllcicnt to couect young Hliss and at the same time passenger trains lie secured against being used ns targets by Al len county boys.

One lino night Lewi, in a spirit of gentle in qiiisltiveness for which ho is famous, tied a cianberry Jon ono of his corns before retiring. Next day tho corn disappeared and hasn't been back since.
