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
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
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
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
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
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.
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.
