THE PITTSBTJJRQ- DISPATCH, !E!RIDAY, PEBRUART 22, 1889.
if TO FOOL MATT QUAY And to Get Even With the Liquor Men, Crawford County Democrats Propose to VOTE FOR THE AMENDMENT Beaver, Butler, Crawford, Lawrence and Mercer Counties Are All IX USE TO FIGHT FOR PROHIBITION. The Western Border Nearly Solid Tor tbe Amendment Brinetng Out tbo Farm Vole Effect of the Supreme Court De cision on the Municipal Act Making Votes for Prohibition Bnller County Soap Miners Unite lor Temperance Kegardlcs of Tarty Politics Guessing at tbe Votes of Three Distinguished Men. The western border is solid for Constitu tional amendment, wi'h the exception of Irie county. Our special commissioner continued his researches through Crawford, Mercer, Lawrence, Butler and Beaver counties. They will each give majorities of from 1,000 to 2,500 for prohibition. The effect of the fall of the municipal classifica tion act on the temperance agitation is pointed out in one of the interviews. FEOII OCE ErXCIAL COMMISSIONER. Meadvilix, February 2L Pennsylva nia's western border is fenced in by at least six solid prohibition counties. The only spot where the rails have been knocked down is in Erie county, as explained in my letter yesterday. But, as also stated then, tome people hope to find temperance timber plenty enough to rebuild the Erie section of the fence in June. It may be a hard task, however. At the other end, Greene and Washington counties use a sort of barbed-wire fencing, and appended is the result of an examination of the post-holes and pickets located in Crawford, Mercer, Lawrence, Butler and Beaver counties. In all that large extent of country from Conneaut Lake down to the Ohio river, and from Neshannock creek across to the sources of the ConnbqueneEsing, the liquor interests have not the ghost of a chance for winning the June campaign. The aggregate of votes for Constitutional amendment that will go down lrom this region to the threshold of Allegheny county will have much to do .with toning down the opposite influence of Pittsburg and Allegheny in the sum total of "Western Pennsylvania's work. Yet there is one danger for the temperance lead ers in the territory described, viz: A BIG TABU VOTE. The bulk of the votes Prohibitionists are relying upon are from the farmers, and as they, with their farms practically adjoin ing those of Ohio, are ambitious in their harvesting, June 18 will find them almost too busy to take half a day off to go to the polls. I found this fear in every border county not that it might lose the fight for prohioition, but that unless organization was thoroughly advanced so as to arouse the farmers and get a full vote, the aggre gate of majorities would not count for so much as anticipated in swelling the total vote of the State at large. However, move ments are now on foot to that end in every one of tbe counties. "The amendment may find all over the State a new source of friendship, according to the opinion of ex-State Senator Homer J. Humes, of Mead ville. The Senator is one of the best-known Democrats in Pennsyl vania. He said to me: Many votes will be given the amendment, not only here but all over the State, by liquor men themselves as a result of the recentSuprenie Court decision declaring the municipal act un constitutional. Based upon legislation of that class the Brooks law graded liquor licenses for seven classes of cities. Now that the munici pal act is no eood, the Wallace act, dividing cities simply into three classes, remains in force. Therefore, liquor dealers in all the small cities, such as Meadville, Titusville and Johnstown, will have to pay S50U for a license instead of S1J0. The result is the poorer dealers will have to go out of the business, leaving it in the hands of capitalists. Those driven out will deliberately vote for the abolition of all licenses to get even for the good fortune of richer saloonists. CKATvroED ron rEoniBirios-. In reply to a question about Crawford county's intentions, Mr. Hume, said: I believe Crawford county will give a majority of 1.000. and possibly L500. for the amendment. Meadville will be close, with chances in favor o a temperance victory, Titusville will proba bly vote against it, but the townships and boroughs are strongly in favor of it The cam paign for the amendment is being managed by the Republicans, although a few Democrats are put on the committees. But it cannot be denied that the Demo cratic voters here, as elsewhere, feel that Matt Quay put this question through the Legislature to get temperance votes for the Republican party; that he also got moner from the State Liquor League to help elect Harrison, and led them to rest contented that the Democratic party would kill tbe amendment at the popular olection. Now, many Demociats propose, not only to fool Mr. Quay, bat to retaliate upon the liquor ring which has continually played into the hands of the Republicans when we added planks to our platforms, jcar after jear, against sumptuary legislation as a part of our fundamental principles, and thus offered them protection. Joseph L. Shippcn, Esq., a- leading Re publican attorney, and one of the leaders of the amendment "movement here, explained to me that a purely non-partisan organiza tion had been formed, which held a county convention, 6cnt delegates to Harrisburg, and will canvass every nook and corner of the county. He expects 1,500 majority for the amendment in tne county, although pre dicting that both Titusville and Meadville will vote for license, and Meadville is the seat of Allegheny College. Meadville has about 12,000 population and Titusville about 11,000. The county adopted local option by 560 majority in 1873, when Meadville voted for it and Titus ville against. The county has only 64 li censed bars. 3IERCEB COUNTY SURE. The recent experience of a prominent Pittsburg druggist in shipping liquor to Mercer is a fair example of the strong tem perance sentiment prevailing in that county. The number of licenses there have not ex ceeded a dozen for two or three years now, the late rulings of the courts having been given in the telegraphic news of The Dis patch. The largest towns in the county are Mercer, Sharon, Greenville, Sharpsvillc and West Middlesex. Local option was adopted in Mercer county by 943 majority, but since then the prohibition sentiment throughout the county has grown surprisingly, manifesting itself in various ways. Only once, however, did it waver, ana that was six or seven years ago when two Legislative candidates pledged to supi ort a prohibitory amend ment were defeated. But that is no criterion, for one of Mercer's present members in As sembly, Hon. Henry Hall, was chairman of the Republican caucus which decided to fcubnvt the question to a popular vote this summer. He and his colleagues are sup porters of the measure. The estimates of Mercer county people of their majority for ' the amendment range from 2,000 to 3,000. LAWKEKCE COCSTV'S MITE. Lawrence county Los enly about 8 licensed bars, and in 1873 voted for local option by 1,577 majority. Probably basing their guesses on this last fact2 and comput ing a probable heavv gain in temperance sentiment in 15 years, W. H. Falls, Esq., J. U. Emerv. F. J. Alford and others in recentlv published interviews predicted the adoption of the amendment in Lawrence county iy from 2,500 to 3,000 majority. C. H. Akens, Esq., Chairman of the Democratic County Committee, however, differs from this high estimate. "When I met him in New Castle he said to me: This county will vote for prohibition, but with onlyl.000majority, or possibly 1,500, butno more than that. In a total voto of about. 6500 it is asking too much to expect 3,000 majority for the issue. Tbo sentiment in the county tor prohibition is stronfr. especially in the northern section, around felippcry Rock and jNortn. Heaver townships. New Castle will probably be close. There are many Swedes and Italians w orking in the ore and lime quarries throughout the county, but very few of them have a vote. There is quite a large settlement of German farmers in the neighborhood of Wurtemburg, on the Connoquenessing, but while many of them probably like their beer.it is a note worthy lact that tho proprietor of the hotel there stopped, of his own accoriseven or eight years ago applving for license. It will all de pend on how well the fanners votes are can vassed in this campaign. BUTLER'S PEOHIBITIOS' VOTE. Bntler county will vote for the amend ment without doubt, if politics are kept far in the background, 'ihira party proniDi tionists must lay low, Republican must walk arm in arm with Democrat,and Green backers should embrace all three at the same time, in order to iaake the issue a suc cess up among the soap mines. - In other words, if license or no license is voted on purely on the merits of theques tion, no license will come off victori ous. Ex-Sheriff Kelley, Alonzo Shiras and Thomas Mechling told news paper correspondents lately that they be lieved the majority for prohibition in But ler county -would run from 700 to 1,500. W. C. Findley, Chairman of the Kepublican CountyComm:ttee, fixed it as high as 2,500. All admitted that as many Democrats as Republicans are in favor of the issue, and that it should be allowed to remain on non partisan grounds in Butler. The countv adopted local option in 1873 by 1,141 majority. The refusal of all liquor licenses by the President Judge of the But ler County Court a few years before the enactmentof the Brooks law created consid erable sensation at the time, but since then public sentiment has always indorsed that judicial rnling. A portion of Gucken heimer & Co.'s big distillery at Freeport, or rather one of their bonded warehouses, stands on the Butler county side of Buffalo creek. TEOSrECTS IK BEAVEE. The county in which National Chairman Matt Quay, ex-Chief Justice" Daniel Agnew and President Jacob Henrici. of the Econo mies' Society, cast their votes, will be ar rayed on the side of the Constitutional amendment. "Whether all three of the dis tinguished gentlemen named will aid in making the array, is not known by the pub lic. The ex-Chief Justice will vote for it sure. He was one of the first Presidents of the Constitutional Amendment Association of Pennsylvania, and is now enthusiastic in his work for the success of the campaign. Much curiosity is shown in regard to which side of the tally sheet the other two votes will be marked upon. I am told that Senator Quay signed a"W. C. T. U. petition here a few months ago asking, the Legisla lature to adopt the submission resolution, but he has told no one yet how he will vote in June. As to the votes of the Economv Society, they are equally uncertain. Their wines, ciders and beers are better known than their ballots. The old men usually do not take much interest in politics, only casting a full vote at Presidcntal elections. This campaign, however, may be regarded by them as more important than political elections. Beaver county adopted local option in 1873 with 1,230 majority. The number of her licensed bars in recent years has been very limited, and with a strong prohibition feeling in townships, boroughs and the town of Beaver, which is a college town, the county's majority for the amendment is variously estimated at from l,000to 4,800. Beaver Falls, being a manufacturing town, will be closer than any other part of the county. L. E. SlOFIEL. A KISS AND A WAERAST Await Thomas Hnrdvrick When Ho Lands on His Return Prom Europe. tSrECIAI. TELEGRAM TO TM DISPATCH. New Tore, February 21. Thomas Hard wick, one of the second cabin passengers by the steamer Devonia, from Glasgow, found his sweetheart on the pier waiting for a kiss to-day, and a Custom House officer waiting to arrest him for having come to America to work under contract for Everall Brothers, tailors. He was taken to Castle Garden, where he proved to the satisfaction of the commission ers that he had lived in New York three years, and had no contract. Hardwick was released. 6N0W IN THE SOUTH.
