TEMPERANCE CAUSE IS NOW ON TRIAL Campaign is Said to Excel a Presidential Contest in Point of Interest Both Sides Make Confident Claims. AUGUSTA, Me., Sept. 10. After sixty years of warfare on the liquor traffic and twenty-seven years of con stitutional prohibition, Maine, .he orig inal "dry" state, will tomorrow deter mine whether the people wish to re tain prohibition as a part of the or ganic law of the state or to cast it 'aside as a proven failure and an ob stacle in the pathway of reform. No presidential or state election lias ever equalled in interest the campaign which culminates in tomorrow's battle of ballots. Maine was the first state in the union to enforce temperance by law and if it should be discarded now the blow would be one from which the "dry" forces all over the country would bo slow to recover. Both sides realize this, and" while the voters of the Pine Tree state will decide the issue, the "wet" and "dry" interests of the nation have participated in the campaign. Wnile the prohibitionists are confi dently proclaiming a landslide 'they have plainly been worried as to the outcome, for the Women's Christian Temperance Union and other temper ance bodies are today demonstrating and putting forth the most earnest ef forts to induce the voters to bring about the retention of the famous fifth amendment, which was adopted by vote or the people in September, 1SS4. Unprejudiced observers admit that the issue is verv much in doubt and that the result will doubtless be close. Considering the fact that Maine ex perienced a political earthquake last autumn, e'ecting a democratic gover nor and legislature largely upon the liquor issue, it is pointed out that un less .public sentiment has changed there may be as strong an expression of anti-prohibition temper today. The republican leaders have general ly come to believe that it was the al legiance of their party to prohibition for half a century that gradually weak ened the party and finally, in 1910, lost them the state. The democrats could not possibly have won last year except for the assistance of'' republi can voters friendly to the resubmis sion platform of the democracy. During the campaign every sort of nppeal has been made by both sides to prejudice and passion, sentiment and self-interest, and many of the argu ments both for and against the re tention of prohibition were absurd and insincere. The prohibitionists have brought sneakers from all over Norfi America and even from Europe to plead for the continuance of their poller. It is asserted by opponents of the "dry" regime that just as much liquor has been sold in Maine during the last half-century as would have been con sumed under a license regime, the only t'ifference being that the liquors have been of a poorer quality and hav com manded higher prices. It is generally said that blind tigers and kitchen speak-easles have flourished all over the state and that there are hundreds of so-called drug stores which have i no other excuse for existence than the sale of liquors. o PLAY INTERRUPTED BY REAL DROWNING REDONDO.

MEETING SEEMED A HUMOROUS EVENT And the Ludicrous Features Were All Noted And Are Set Down in Entertaining Style for the Benefit of Public. A citizen of Phoenix who takes an intelligent interest In jMibllc affairs attended the Ashurst meeting Satur dav night, and submits his impressions as follows: Mr. Henry F. Ashurst in his speech Saturday night perpetrated a bit of humor, somewhat unaware, jossibly. of the real humor of it Mr. Ashurst is a gifted speaker so gifted that his salutation. "Good evening." Is elo quent; and h.s statement that It is "a pleasant day" is a burst of ora te ry. Platitudes attain a dignity by his declamation, and the triu-st tru isms acquire, by the genius of his ut terances, the fascination of novelty. Consistency is an affair Inconsistent with the puriMise of those who move multitudes by the magnetism of their presence and the fervor of their speech. Ashurst in alluding to someone who had Interrupted with a question, grew furiously indignant and "hurled back" denials. He said he would not use the word "liar," as "that was a word ubed by an ex-president." Getting back instantly however to the pre pared part of his speech, he alluded to the suggestion that he was fighting his way to the senate. lie said he was, and here he became dramatic Mr. Ashurst's art of oratory is really idmlrable; it is of that kind which can only be acquired by coniituit practice and rehearsal he said that a man in Yavapai county recently dis courteously suggested that the speak er's attitude In public matters was not n i ways that of the really honest man. Mr. Ashtfrst did not name the In cautious Individual who ventured a doubt of the Ashurst unbroken record for official rectitude, but he explained that the man was an individual "who by means of the patrimony of his family was being educated at Harvard while he (Ashurst) was carrying the hod in Arizona" He then with truly artistic premeditated sponstaneity burst forth into a whirlwind of right eous wrath and declaimed that every man, whatever his name whether Jones, Smith. Bigwig, Perweek pres ent, past or future, who intimated that he, Henry Ashurst, was or had ever been otherwise than absolutely honest in the discharge of every public duty delegated to him "was an Infamous liar." President Roosevelt sometimes used the word "liar," which by some sort of reasoning Ashurst declared himself precluded from using, and he was compelled to resort to the modified phrase, "Infamous liar" The distinc tion, even If somewhat refined. Is ar tistic, and reveals Mr. Ashurst, as I have already intimated, as an uncon scious humorist at least. And Ashurst would be nothing If not artistic. And it must be said again that he is most artistic. But the particular bit of humor to which I at first alluded was disclosed when- Mr. Ashurst referred to the at titude of the republican party of this state in the present political cam paign. He said the republicans were quite properly remaining quiet that they "were contributing nothing to the end In view." Repeating the phrase that they were "contributing nothing to the end In view," he said that re minded him of a story of Lincoln, and then he related the story somewhat thus: During theTprogress of the trial In court at which Lincoln and other attorneys were present. In Sangammon county, Illinois, It was made con spicuously apparent to those present that the seat of the trousers worn by the district attorney was badly worn and rent. In a spirit of fun one of the Iuwyers prepared the head of a subscription list reading somewhat after this fashion: "Whereas It Is made painfully to appear to this bar by the rents and tears In the seats of trousers of the district attorney that the said district attorney is greatly In need of a new pair, we, the sub scribers, therefore subscribe to the purpose severally the sum set oppo site our names below." A number of the lawyers signed the paper, sub scribing sums varying from ten to fifteen cents. The paper was finally passed to Lincoln, who read it over carefully, took the pen and wrote be low the names of the subscribers thus: "I do not feel myself able to contribute to the end in view." The humor of all this seems to be In "the end in view" which Ashurst has In this campaign. He was right when he said the republicans "will not contribute to the end in View." By the way, I did not hear Mr. Ashurst say anything about hfs vote on'Hhe Cowan bill. EXPRESS BOX WAS FOOND TO CONTAIN BODY OF A WOMAN SACRAMENTO, Sept. 10. A box sent to the city crematory by the Wells-Fargo office with Instructions to burn immediately In the crematory, when opened today was found to con tain the skeleton of a woman with silk clothing, worm-eaten shoes and bits of casket wood.
