Besides the question of closer rela
tions with the southern republics,
with especial to the early completion
of the Panama canal and the conse
quent stimulating commercial devel
opment in the trans-Mlsslppi states,
the following questions will come un
National defense, with especial
reference to the needs of the Pa
cific coast and Hawaii; an adequate
merchant marine and the need of
government aid in its upbuilding and
maintenance; conservation of natural
resources, irrigation and reclamation
of semi-arid lands, scientific dry
farming, parcels post, postal savings
banks, department of mines, immi
gration, good roads, sugar beet and
cane industry, national finance, re
form of the consular service, the
Barataria and La Forcge canals,
drainage of submerged lands, and
separate statehood for Arizona and
Evening illustrated lectures by
government experts will be a feature
at the Auditorium during the con
gress. Tbe object of the government
is to explain to the people of the
trans-Mississippi states, in the most
effective way, the progress that has
been made upon the public work
upon which it is engaged. For this
occasion especially new views have
been taken upon the Panama canal,
also views showing the progress of
reclamation upon the various pro
jects under way.
A very keen rivalry has sprung up
among the various cities for the
honor of entertaining the congress
next year. San Antonio, with the of
fer of a guaranty fund of $10,000
for the entertainment of the con
gress, appears to lead the race at the
present time, though St. Paul, New
Orleans, Los Angeles. St. Louis and
Omaha are actively at work. Colonel
Ike T. Pryor, a prominent Texas live
stove man who is now chairman of
the executive committee of the con
gress, will probably be elected presi
dent to succeed Thomas P. Walsh.
Commercial Club Meeting Monday.
Dr. King, president of the Wenat
fchee Commercial club, calls attention
!to the meeMng which will be held
in the club rooms Monday night. This
j is the regular monthly meeting which
j was postponed from last Monday
| night and it is desired that as large
!an attendance as possible be present.
The Waterville papers state that
the Fanning company, which has
been playing in that city this week,
has had poor houses. This is due to
so many people being out of the city
and on account of the warm weather.

Prohibition and the Home
One of the most telling points in the "Arguments" of the Anti-Saloon
League hypnotists is that the licensed saloon WRECKS THE HOME and
VIOLATES the MARRIAGE TIE. We are told that the saloon is the principal
feeder for the divorce court. Terrible—lf True. But is it true? The census
reports will give the answer. Let us compare the divorce figures in the two
banner prohibition states with those of two high license states. And Now
Listen, Mr. Voter.
Divorces to 100,000 population 117
Divorces to 100.000 population 109
HIGH LICENSE STATES:
Divorces to 100.000 population 23
Divorces to 100.000 population 23
Five times as many divorces annually in Prohibition states as in High
Licenses states. '«23 FOR YOl I in NEW YORK. '' ANTI.''
BUT THAT IS NOT ALL.
In dear old Prohibition Maine SIXTY-TWO per cent of the Divorces arc
granted on the ground of intemperance. In precious Kansas FIFTY per
cent of the disrupted marriage ties are due to drink. (No wonder, either, when
you remember what vile stuff is soki in the "blind pigs" and "bootleg joints"
that thrive in Maine and Kansas.) And now, how about the high license states?
Taking New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania as a basis. ONLY TWENTY
ONE per cent of the divorces are the result of intemperance.
EVEN SOUTH DAKOTA, the Paradise of Easy Divorces, where hundreds
migrate just to get a divorce, ONLY 95 divorces to the 100,000 population are
reported AGAINST 117 in Maine and 109 in Kansas. These fismres certainly
speak for themselves.
