A prompt reply will bo appre ciated as the answer is intended for publication, Very Respectfully Miss M. L. Montgomery,Pres. Mrs. Paul Castles, Cor. Sec. Stark ville, M iss., J uly 3rd, 1911. Mrs, Paul Castles, Cor. Secy, W. C. T. U. Dear Mrs. Castles I Beg leave to acknowledge receipt of your favor of 20th prox. containing certain ques tions upon which the Union you represent wants expression from the various legislative canidates. For the sake of convenience, I will take these questions up in the order in which they are ask ed; and I state here, that I think that no man, aspiring to public office should hesitate to define his position with referance to matters of public and general in terest. Your first question reads;- • “How do you stand upon the sub ject of State Wide Prohibition?’* ,To this, I answer;- lam heart and soul in favor of this schem. If these laws, already in force, "can be re-inforced so as to be bet ter the prohibition of the sale of intoxicating liquors in this state, I am unalterably in favor of such be done, I am pledging to the •purpose of fighting any relaxa tion of our present laws upon this My position upon the enact ment of a Juvenile Reformatory Law 1 To this question I answer:-I have always believed that it was not consistent with the reforma •tory purposes of the law to per mit the erring youth to be incar cerated and associated with the *more mature criminals who find STARKVILLE, MISSISSIPPI, lodgement in our common jails. If it is dangerous to the mortal development of the youth to per mit them to associate with the vulgar and profane who are free to form apart of common society, I believe it to bo infinitely mere detrimental to permit the young, though they may have erred, to suffer an enforced and constant association with the grown up criminal. lam in favor of a dif ferent arrangement. My position on the proposition of raisin the age of consent from 12, to 18 years. I believe the pres ent age of consent is entirely too low and I shall do all I can to get materially raised. yours very truly, H. H. Sikes. Starkville, Miss.,June 20,1911. Miss Madge Montgomery, Pres. W. C. T. U., Dear Miss Madge:- lam much in favor of the enforcement of and state wide prohibition law and a law raising the age of consent. The home, the church and the function all belong to you and they should be protected. Respectfully Frank S. Puller. St ark ville. Miss., June 20, 1911. Miss Madge Montgomery, Pres. W. C. T. U. Dear Miss Madge:- Replying to your enquiry, I beg to say: That I did all that 1 could for the passage of our state-wide prohibition law, pro bably one of the best and most skillfully drafted of any in U. S. To educate, to live up to, the wise and wholesome provisions of this law, should be a labor of love for all good citizens. As to the age of consent: The last Legislature, raised it from ten to twelve years. I believe the next Legislature will raised it higher, which I am in favor of, and I am truly glad that the good women of the state are agitating this most important subject, 1 am in favor of a separate in stitution for boy crimnals.
