THE PROHIBITORY LAW
Ably Championed by Gov. St
Ia Mot a Failure. . -
r roro the Daily Nbws of July 98
After the Amateur baud bad played
some very choice music in front of the
ball last evening a very large but tardy
audience gathered at Jay's hall to listen
to Gov. SL John's address, under the ana-
pices or tbe VV omen's Christian Temper
ance Union, on the prohibitory law of
Kansas. The stage of the ball bad been
very tastefully decorated, and seats were
provided thereon for tbe Governor and
various members of the W. C. T. U.
Tbe first thing on the programme as an
nounced by the president of the onion
was reading of the scriptures by Mrs.
Mary Rogers, after which this well
known evangelist offered a fervent pray
er In behalf of temperance everywhere.
A quartette of Welsh ci tizens, led by T.
II. Lewis, then sang a temperance para
phrase on the Marseilles hymn in Welsh
and in English. .There waa considera
ble confusion -during tbe early part of
the evening, and it waa not until the
Governor bad been announced and bis
address begun that the carelessly noisy
crowd quieted down sufficiently to make
bearing possible in the rear of tbe halL
ST. JOHN'S ADDBK9S.
Gov. St, John commenced his address
by saying be bad not come there to dis
cuss the wisdom of the prohibitory law.
Prohibition bad been adopted in Kansas
according to Ibe manner provided in our
State constitution, and the law to carry
out the prohibitory amendment was in
dorsed by the temperance and law abid
ing people of the State. Then comes
the question of whether this law shall
be enforced. Leavenworth, who in
times past was a political despot in the
State, who ruled tbe destinies of politi-
clans, now declared, though being only
one-thirtieth of the population of tbe
State of Kansas, that this law was fanat
ical and tyranical, that saloons
were necessary to the prosperity of
a city, and they would not enforce
prohibition. Now, there was a time
when Leavenworth was the first city in
the Missouri valley, and she had enough
saloons to have become a city of 100,000
inhabitants, if saloons make a place.
But they do not, for the glory of this old
metropolis has departed and she is now
a comparatively unimportant town of
10,000 people. But even in Leavenworth
there are not more than half so many
grog shops as before the law passed, and
if tbe testimony of witnesses was to be
relied on we would believe there is no
place in the city where Intoxicating liq
uors are sold. There bad been trials but
no convictions under the prohibitory
law at Leavenworth. The Governor had
been asked about calling out tbe militia
to enforce the law. When the sheriff re
ported to him that be and bis posse
were unable, from opposition by the cit
izens, to carry out the law, then he would
not hesitate to call out the whole state
In Topeka there is a county attorney
who does his duty. Though the first
trials failed of convicting, tbe opposition
made a blunder which ruined their fight.
They got Sam Wood and Gov. Robinson
to address a meeting, and that did it
Robinson said a juryman's duty was to
bring in a verdict according to his con
science, unmindful of the law, and Sam
Wood well, life is too short to tell
what bam said, but there nave been no
more failures of conviction since then
and Topeka must be stricken from the
list of cities which do not enforce the
A mighty interest was at work to defy
this law. There were only two morning
daily newspapers in the State which did
not countenance the open violation and
disregard of tbe prohibitory law. Mil
waukee beer men sent money to fight
the law, ana tbe brewers' congress, re
cently held, appropriated an unlimited
sum. It also denounced the law and re
solved that it "viewed with alarm the
spread of Puritanical ideas in this
All the cities of the State can enforce
the law, just as Emporia has enforced it,
The duty of the mayor is to enforce all
laws aud ordinances. The Marshal has
power to enforce tho law; policemen
have power to enforce it; it is the duty
of sheriffs to enforce it, - and the county
attorney is required to see it enforced
The oath of office of all these officers
make It perjury to fail to enforce this
It is claimed that the law will keep
away immigration. The German em mi
gration bugbear was always brought up,
But German immigrants said they were
not huntiDg for beer or beer gardens
biit homes, and still come to Kansas,
and a party of Mennonites had within a
few days located even in Sam,
Wood's neighborhood in Chase county,
Kansas is to-day in a more prosperous
condition than ever. The value of her
personal property had increased $10,260,
000 during the last year, and the earn
ings of the Santa Fe road for tbe year
ending June 30, 1881, showed a net in
crease of $433,000 over any previous
year. And there would be raised in Kan
sas this year 20,000,000 bushels of wheat
and 100,000,000 bushels of corn. Al
though the law had been in force but
few months, yet with an increase of SO,
000 in population in the state, the num.
Der or convicts in its pen
itentlary had decreased from 714
649. Tbe law will never be repealed,
and a prediction was made that in a few
years the number of our convicts would
fall to 300. Maine, with a population
about the same as California, had 196
convicts in ber penitentiary, while Cali
fornia, with free liquor, had 1,600.
Although Leavenworth and Atchison
and Dodge City now defy the law, it had
otherwise been a grand success in Kan
sas, and would the people of the State
allow one or two cities to trample on
the law which tbey obey f It had been
called the law of a few fanatical women
What leaders in any grett movement
were not counted fanatical ? If the men
had to stay at home and nurse the baby
and do kitchen drudgery while
their wives laid around the sa
loons there would be some
fanatical men advocating the law also.
Comparisons had been made between
this law and the fugitive slave law, and
it bad been said it was an honorable
thing to defy this law aa the fugitive
slave law had been defied. But opposi
tion to the slave law was honorably made,
not by sneaking back-door methods, and
on the ground that it was an iniquitous,
unholy law. Prohibition was in the in
terest of everything to elevate man.
And the fugitive slave law had been en
forced, odious though it was, as the
memorable case of Anthony Burns bore
It bad been asserted by the whisky
press that the Governor was about the
country in quest of official favors. But this
question Is not a political question, and
it was championed by blm because he had
an interest in the welfare of hia fellow
men. It is simply a question of whether
the whisky men shall rule thla state.
He wished that , women could vote.
There would be no question of how pol
iticians stood on the prohibitory law
then. He counseled the men to vote and
labor manfully for this righteous meas
ure, and referred his audience to I Tim
othy U 8 and 9 : "But we know that the
law is good, if a man use it lawfully.
Knowing this, that the law is not made
for a righteous man, but for the ungodly
and for sinners,'' etc.
The address, of which the above is
merely an outline, lasted about an hour
and a half, and was frequently applaud
ed. It waa a clear and logical -argument
in favor of law and right, and can
not fail of good effects in our city. The
Governor, although hoarse with a cold
aad not at hia beat, made a very favora
ble Impression by his earnestaess and
evident sincerity, and his effort was
warmly commended by every law-abiding

Editors News: The pleasures of
watering place are not continuous or un

take place to mar the happiness of the
pleasure seeker. Only yesterday
thrilling scene took place in the dining
room of our hotel. A lady boarder ac
cused the waiter girl of palming off
oleomargarine for "cow butter" (as she
called it.) The landlord was sent for,
war of words ensued, a committee of
ladies was selected as a compromise to
investigate the butter, and after a care
ful inspection the committee reported
that they had found about three hairs to
the pound, and consequently they pro
nounced it genuine butter. The Colora

the severe drying process of last winter.

Married ladies are more subject to

limited confidence in the great Dispenser
of rain and other needful things, yet we
do think that He ought not to let Garfield
and Conkling occupy his attention to
the neglect of this part of Kansas.. ...
Mr. Pelford has just finished a nice ad
dition to his house and is now. having a
well drilled. Water was-never so hard
to find before in this part of the country.
Dr. Conaway had one dug and two drill
ed, one 55 feet and the other 110 feet, be
fore he succeeded in obtaining sufficient
water for stock.. Lietw linckell has
one of the finest smoke bouses ia the
state.... Several of our teachers are at
tending the institute and report it a
complete success despite the "healed
term.'. . . . Aaron Jones still Iingcreth in
Arkansas, bnt will return in a few weeks.
Peaches are drying and shriveling
np on the trees for want of rain. . . .Toma
toes and. the festive cucumber have
made their appearance in the market.
Hay hands are in great demand and can
obtain pood wae-es. Tbe rattle of the

Wednesday, July 27.
A convention of the Disciples church
was held in that church here last Fri-
day and Saturday. Workers and minis
ters were present from Greenwood,
Coffey and Woodson counties, which
form the eighth Kansas district. El
der , ltandall, stale evangelist, . was
pYfescnt and preached most acceptably,
as well as giving good counsel to his co
laborers. The convention was an in
teresting and successful one.... Judge
E. W. Cunningham came -down last
evening to attend the Sunday school as
sociation to-day.... Rev. Hassinger,
Lutheran minister from- Ohio, is stop,
ping with Rev. Groseclose. He
preached in the Presbyterian church
last Sunday even ing.... County Super
intendent G. II. Martz has re
turned from bis visit to St Louis. ,
One James Brodle, an innocent keeper
of a "meat shop" where "breakfast ba
con" was on sale, was arrested a week
ago last Monday for selling intoxicating
drinks unlawfully. His case came up
for trial before Justice Onlcy last Thurs
day. County Attorney Harlan, who had
filed the complaint, appeared for the
prosecution and Gen. G. C. Rogers and
Hon. T. L. Davis tor the defense.' Con
siderable delay was bad in securing
jury. When the evidence was in the
case was so plain that, though the de
fendant's attorneys made heroic efforts
to save him, it was unavailing. The
jury brought in a verdict of guilty, and
Brodle was let off with a fine, of $100
and costs and agreeing to close his
"meat market." . This was the first case
under the new law, and we hope there
will be no occasion for a second. Will
the editor please telegraph the news of
this conviction, to Gov. Robinson, Col,
Holliday and Sam Wood T Rev. J. C.
Hull, of Madison, and Rev. I. N. Locke,
of Severy, are in the city attending the
Sunday School Convention. . . .Rev. Mr.
Jack, ex pastor of the Presbyterian
ehurch, is visiting friends in tbe city.
The annual meeting of tbe Greenwood
County Sunday School Association
met in the Presbyterian church yester
day at 2 p. m. Rev. Groseclosre con
ducted the devotional exercises. The
President, J. L. Baker, then took the
chair. In the absence of the permanent
secretary, Dr. J. F. Troxell was elected
temporary secretary. Tbe names of
delegates present were enrolled and
Miss Fisher read tbe minutes of the
previous session. Rev. C. W. Guile tt,
then read an opening address. Subject,
"Tbe Influence of Sunday Schools from
a Secular Standpoint" On motion the
association requested the writer to fur
nish copies of the address to the county
papers and they be asked to print It,
Rev. C. J. McKlnney discussed the sub
ject of "Devotions in the Sunday
School," when after some miscellaneous
business and talking, the association ad
iourned. This morning at 8:30 asso
ciation was called to order by the presi
dent. Rev. Scotford conducted the de
votions. The following was the pro
pranime: "Tbe Sunday School Su
perintendent," by Rev. Scotford
"The Blackboard in the Sun
day School," by Rev. Locke.
"God's Call to the Sunday School Work
er," by Rev. Groseclose "The Teach
er's Work and now to Do It," by Judge
Cunningham and Revs. Hull and Cook
Judge Cunningham gave the most com-
piete analysis or the teacher's work we
have ever heard. He covered the whole
ground and left but little for others to
say, and they manifested their apprecia
tion - of the fact by making only a few
commendatory remarks. This after
noon was given to miscellaneous busi
ness. Reports from different schools
were read .showing a healthy growth
the schools of the county. . The con
stitution of the association was amended
so that instead of meeting'the last week
in July the association will meet at the
call of the executive committee. Dr.
Troxell was elected president for tbe en
suing year and Miss Laura Gordon was
re-elected secretary. The interest man
tested was not what it should have been.
but was better than it had been in other
years. The association closed to-night
by a children's meeting. Several very
interesting exercises were given by the
children, and J udge Cunningham made
speech to them in his usual happy style.
