THE WAR IK KANSAS
Mrs Nhtlon and hor saloon smashing
brlgado is no longer a local proposition
Sho has become a national incident
ntul her samo threatens to spread even
beyond the seas Tho Kansas lady and
the strenuous crusado of tho cohorts
under her leadshlp hare been treated
as a rare good joke by newspapers aud
others riot in tho saloon business in
Kansas But intho Sunflower state
tho lady Is no joke She is just about
as netlouB a proposition as ovor swoop
ed down upon the bleeding common
wealh And that there is a serious pur
pose In what Mrs Nation Is doing hor
Btlckutlvcness leaves no room for ques
tion Sho declares she hasstarted out
to discover whether or1 not tho joint
keeper has any status under tho Kan
sas law and she is going to make it
warm for them until they test the mat
tor in the courts So far the saloon
men havo nottaken up the ladys dell
and she is proceeding along her original
theory that any one has a right to
smash a saloon which has no legal ex
istence and which is entitled to no pro
tection under the law Sooner or later
the courts will no doubt decide tills
question In the meantime tho re
doubtable parrle is not inclined to let
tho saloonmenforget that she js abroad
in the land Hor joint smashing vol
catjq is in a state of active eruptionand
there isno telling in what rum selling
Kansas town the next bloody eruction
will occur Vorily tho Kansas saloon
man has fallen upon troublous times
