Judging from the atories told In Washington by sUtesmion of the respectlijf states Jrtnr, there's good oi Mat, witn the exception r: Representative Ut tlefleld. yon couldn't get a senator or representative from the state to e.tpram Hla trewg for publication for tore nor money. Why? Moearfee the question la loaded. TTfen there' grand old Texas, at the other end of the country. Her statesmen tn congress avoid the question "Ihe mbjm as uir would n mad dbg, to the ittefmtches say. Of course, Il Is Just as bod among the ftouth Carolina reprtotntatlves The only man from that state who will talk at all Is ' Iltehfork" Beu Tillman. He gives voice to bin convic (tons regardless of how they harmon ise, with public opinion. in the recent spring elections in Maine according to toe atatewnits of polltlriamrof that state at Washing ton, a number of Republican cltio went Democratic because tb Demo crats openly opposed prohibition and denounced It as a fake and as pro duclng more hypocritical violations of law and evastooa of truth than any- tntosX evflf ktvwn. Coreraor Cobb himself has come out against prohi bition at operated In that state. The claim Is boldly made that under the present laws the state Is deluged with blind tiger whisky from Canada and elsewhere and that there baa not ben the slightest decrease in drunkenness. The people, it is aoaerted. pay out large sums of money for whlaky and strong drinks brought In by express and freight, while the light drinks are shut out. Down. In Texas the Democrats ai terribly split up over whether m. question of prohibition for the entire state Is to be made an laane In the coming campaign, or whether the ex isting local option, laws snail be al lowed to stand as they are. A fae lion of Democrats has organised to demand prohibition In the party plat form, while others say that this must not be allowed. The antl prohibition bus declare that the teetotalers and whisky Interests are working togeth er agnlnst brewers and wine pro ducers. "The whlaky pvople." said a Texas congressman a day or so ago "are selling about at much whlaky In the dry counties ot the statu ns they ever did by means ot express and freight, while the men who make beer and wine And their products shut out by reason of the fact that these- drinks are too bulky to bo linn died by the blind tigera. There Is a aenuine sentiment springing up In the state to change this and give the light drinks the advantage In law over the others, as It Is contended this would reduce drunkennoMi a great deal." The tirohlbltlunlats declare they have nothing to do with tho attitude of tho whisky people and that they are satisfied with the way things are going. The whole thing I such a dellcale one that otory Texas pel Itlclnti la holding off as long ns he can before gutting Ipto the fmy on one able or another. It Is sa.e to pro Hot. In South Caroline, as known. Sen ator Tillman Is seeking to retain the state dispensary as the bent solution of the whisky problem, mid charge that the liquor people and the prolil bltlonlsiH are working togethor to abolts.h it, the former with tho bellof they can bring about prohibition, and the latter believing they can bring about a return of the license system or local option. In his recent hot art dress to the senate. Senator Tillman emphasised the heavy foreign ship menta of whisky Into the dry counties and declared that drunkenness wax as widespread as ever. o-o ARDMCJnE CITIZEN VICC PRESI DENT.

UNOFFICIAL TITLES. Curtis Hancock offered a bill In the Texaa legislature prohibiting cttlatns from being addressed as "Colonel or Major' or other military titles, and providing further that lawyers not holding judicial position shell not bo called "Judge." The Dallas TlRie Herald does not understand why Mr. Hancock did not also include in his bill a proviso for n ban on "Prof." and "Hon." as ap plied to candidates for position of alderman and constable. The Intio- tluctlon of suoti a bill in eongro'i to be made applicable to the Indian Territory would create a widespread consternation amor)' many of our prominent men. oo John Svbastali of the Kock Island railway system says: "The Hock Isl and nnd 1 Tl seo syatem stand flat!) for the development of the southwest.
