He told them that he had nothing very much at stake because his position was known to the people. They appreciated that he favored larill revision downward and besides his term did not expire until 191.!, but he was awfully sorry for all those poor Republican members of Congress who must stand for re-election in 1910, be cause then the indignation of the vot ers would be at white heat and they would visit it on the poor members o Congress.

It was not political victory, but it probaby aflbn ed them just as much gratification a if it had been. There have been som of the younger Republicans in th House who have been talking some what brashly of their prowess as ba players.

After several lights the legislature abolished Hate dispensary and ordered its rs wound up, but left to each coun-1 ie right to decide by vote of its peo ihether it should have its own dispensary or prohibition. Six counties of the forty voted in re the dispensary. The last legisla provided for a general local option ion to be held this summer at h each of the dispensary counties vote to decide whether it shall re or abolish the dispensary. The 1 tiger interest has lined up with irohibitionists and indications are all the counties will go dry.
