Mil. liOWEUSOCK'S FIGHT AGAINST
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
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. Hut in Tope-

remembor tho city has novor mado tho
tralllo a sourco of regular monthly
revenue after tho manner of tho other
cities of tho State
Tho law lias not boon enforced In
Topoka, any nioro than in any other
places, without a light. 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
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
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!

For Shooting Into a Train.
Tho preliminary hearing of Mal

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. It Is a peculiar

Well-Lewis Collide! has discovered
something. During the arduous dutio
of soldiering In the Philippines he
contracted what Is known to the medi

has over tried corns has liked them
and many are tho humbug tonicities
irdverCised for- their cute. 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. Lewis has very logically con
cluded that cranberry Is fatal to tho
coin microbe and will take out a pat-
Vnt oir tho cure. It is rcmarkublothat
in tho lengthy past some barefooted
epicurean has not by accident spilled
cranberry sauce on his be-oorned feet
and thus forestalled the discovery,
but fato has been good to Iola and
