Only 'cur more days remain be fore the people will bp called up on to decide a question which is ot the Utmost importance, not only to the present inhabitants of the citv, but to future generations as well. A question that is so grave that ev ery man in Columbus owes it to himself, to his family and to his neighbors to seriously consi 'er and vote on intelligently. Ou next Mon day the question of the new water works and sewerage system is to be voted upon, and on the result of the election depends whether Columbus is ta remain a country town fore-er and aye, to' follow the pace set by her sister cities throughout the south, and join in their onward march of progress and prosperity. The advantages of the new system have been so of en set forth in the columus of The Commercial that it is useless to again enumerate them. They are manifold and mul tiudinous, tending to benefit every merchant, every manufaoturer.every property holder and every individual in the city of Columbus. Theieare scarcely a score of the voters of the city who are directly opposed to the proposed improve ment, but the great trouhle is that they are luke warm on the subject. Most of thera ds not seem to care a rap whether the election is carried or not; and unless tnis indifference on the part of the voters i over come, little hope of -carrying the election can be entertained, there fore it behooves those public-spirited and far-sighted men, who see the many advantages that the new sys tem will bring, to get out and work for it just as he would were he run ning for office. This is the one thing and the only thing that will carry the election. Remember that there are only a few more days left in which to hustle, l'ull off your coat and go to work. A TCXS WONDER.

Thanks be to the God of nations for putting it into the heart of the most powerful monarch on earth to give the key n te to national prohibition of the manufacture of intoxicants. THE MIGHTY CZAR. Under the young Czar, Nicholas II, Russia is shaking he vigorous loins and forging forward on the living issues of the day. She even has a "liquor question" like other folks, and' has gottor: around to about the same conclusions a3 the most progressive. Khe has tried the dispensary system under gov ernment officials, with profits turned over, to the government, and de clares it a failure so far as decreas ing drunkeness. One of her lead ing journals swings gracefully around into prohibition water, and glides out upon it in this wise : "Cut it is clear at all events that no sort of effort to promote temper ance will do away with drunken ness. It may be possible to mi.i gate the grosser and more flagarant external evils of disgraceful con sumption of liquor; but drunken ness will exists just so long as li quor will bo sold. To abolish drunkenness is possible in but one way by abolishing, through abso lute prohibition, the manufacture and sale of liquor. We have spoken of this repeatedly before and no one should imagine 'that the total abolition of the sale of liquor is an unrealizable dream. Liquor 's far from heing a necessary article of consumption or a condition of hu man existence, and confquently it can be stricken from the list with out the slightest hesitation or Bp prehension regarding the future welfare of the masses and the gov ernment." How is that from the stppes of Central Asia? ' America v.rrl.l bet ter neglect her oratory and ji!ijroifiin fur a time and devote herself to this pr.T.'iie.i! quorum, before the k nes of A f ! i -i iirel !l he czars of K i---n 't-iid'tv'ssiuh.tViijs to our shores. William Stead, of London, s;iid, after an interview wiih the "Czar, recent: "I thaok God for bun. Nf he is spared to Russia that young man will go far." Whiskey is 6aid to be at the bot tom of most of the assaults that have induced the resort to lynch law as a penalty, and whiskey is also noticed as a prime factor in tuning up the spirits of a mgb to 'iction. This alone will account for the infrequency of this species of crime before the war, when whiskey was not within the reach of the ne groes a5 it is today. Mobile Reg ister. The drink traffic is the bane of civilization, and the disgrace of Christian nations. An exchange says that alcohol will remove grass st.iins from sum mer clothes. It will also remove the summer clothes, and also the spring, autumn and winter clothes, not only from one who drinks it, but also from his wife and family. It will remove the household furni ture from the house, the eatables from the pantry, the smiles ffom the face of his wife and the happiness from the home. As a remover of things alcohol has few equals, no superiors. The man who preaches the doc trine of moderate drinking as a so lution of the liquor question, whether he be preacher or layman, is the greatest enemy of the tem perance reform. He is generally one whose opinions are bound in the chains of habit. Like that Scotch parson who, reproving a drunkard, said : "You should quit drinking to excess, Sandy. Think of the effects, the , pain, the aching brow, the parched throat, the trem bling nerve " Sandy interrupted, "Hech, Dominie, gie's yer han.' Ye ken the sensation sae weel I'm thinking it's no' tue first time ye've been fou yersel." Tallie Morgan puts the liquor problem thus : Twenty-Eve snakes running through the streets, that's free whisky. Twenty-five snakes gathered into a bos in which twenty-five holes are made by authority of court, that's low license. Ten of the holes are closed and the snakes all get out through the fifteen, that is high license. Drive all the snake9 over to the next village, ihat's local option. Kill all the snakes, that's Pro hibition. Large assortment of Toilet Soaps just received. Highly perfumed. Mayo & Weaver. AXIMALS THAT ACT- Lotktiart's Elephant Come Jians YVi'.n Pinjllr.f Bros." Circus- j And now comes the f a m us Pin-- : ling Pros., with the most a lound ; ing trained animal Hiv rti-erre tit t ; I e ( t n1 ury-a ceir.paey of piiiinc ei rnejy elephants-presenting vau i evilie gpei ia!:its and ven complete, ! laughable 'playtt wi!h an absolute fidelity to truth und nature, mid wifhnn intelligence never befurej exhibited in the brute creation. In securing the wonderful Lock hart comedy elephants, Rmgling Bros, have indeed made a master stroke. Until the Lcckhart t lephauU ap peared, it was generally believed that the limit of what could be taught the elephant had b;en reach ed. These comedy ele.phants have not only shattered all previously conceived iaeas of the possibilities of animal training, but the- are, and will undoubtedly continue to be for many years, the most mar velous instance of the powar of man over the brute eation that history has any record of. These wonder ful elephants do not go through their performance with the perfunct ory submissiveness bo apparent in many trained animals, but they ap ply themselves to the task of enter taining the vaist audiences that daily gather under Ringling Bros.' mammoth pavillions with anintelli gense, a sense of the proprieties and a keen evidence of humor that ia at once marvelous and delightful. They work absolutely without urg ing, seem to appreciate the impor tance of their part of the entertain ment and unmistakably evidence iheir delight when the audience breaks out int long continued ap plause. The reportoire of the Lock hart elephants embraces sevfral laughable comedies, among which is a convulsing drama in several in tensely funny scenes. There is the cafe with two elephants wr;uln g over the payment of their seorj; the arrest of Ihe nvra belitrerent tot diunkei n ss ; In trial b fore the magistral e and Ins final topiai.i ment to prison. AH the actors m this amusing comedy are elephant. They are all dressed for the chara -te's hey assume, and, although not a word is spoken, the pantom imic actions are so comprehensive that the story of the play is appar ent to all. In addition tc this and other comedies, the Lockhart ele phants d.ince jigs, go through the measures of the stately minu-.t, play upon musical instruments, and perform nnmberless other astound ing and almost incredible feats. These marvelous elephant a?tor can be seen OLly with Ringling Bros.' famous show, which will exhibit in Columbus, Wednesday, November, 30th.
