In unswer to the above ques f tion we publish the following clipplng, re taken from tie Missouri Issue, a pa ie- per published in a state that has not t een noted for either its love for Kansas or the prohibition cause, inl which the effects of prtohibition and of its workings in Kansas are set forth ohe as seen from several view points: How prohibition works in Kansas. Wid- hat about Kansas? Rev. Chas. M. Sheldon, D. D., -the A- distinguished author ,and preacher, led of Topeka, Kansas, gives the follow ing facts: "Prohibition Kansas has out the led liquor business into the catalogue of er- other crimes where it belongs. It has wo put the people into a position of po sitive antagonism to the saloon." Governo. Hoch' says: "A quarter of of a million people have been born in o the state who have never seen a sa no loon or a "joint" and have grown up to believe as a part of their creed that it is an unmixed evil. Of the 105 counties in the state, only le twenty-one have any paupers. Only Itwenty-five have any poor houses. a- Thirty-five have their jails absolutely re- empty. Thirty-seven have no crimin o- al cases on their dockets. Kansas has the smallest number of paupers a of any state in proportion to its pop ill ulation. It spends more for educa be tion than any other state. K- Eight hundred and "five newspapers 1t- are printed in the state, only twenty n- of which ever print any liquor adver be tisements, and four of those are print ed in the German language. le After a short struggle in May and ti r- June, 1907, the joint property owned h ?d by ten outside breweries, worth more oi s, than J.50,000, was conhiscated by the state supreme court and the brewers te k. implicated surrendered and left the P ir state. It was conclusively provyd re i- mat the breweries were the backers id and owners of practically every no- d to torious joint of the state. of SIn his annual message to thle legis. o In lature for 1907, Governor Hoch said: d "The absurd contention that more Ci d laquor is sold in probibition Kansas Si e than in licensed states, should deceive - no one. It is made chietl by those s who would be entirely content with d thle prohibition policy if their state m.uints were true, but eticient figuros r abundauntlty refute the red iculous satate . ment. Uncle Sam is a pretty good t; bookkeeper and a pretty good collect . or. Lum~pare prohibitio, Kansas with our neighbor, license Neii'aaKaO , e for instance. Nebraska has about s one-tbird less population than has a Kansas, but Uncle Sam has collected s about $2,00,000 a year liqtzor tax C from'the people of Nebraska, ,while . he has been able to get only about - 1 *100,000 from Kansas. The amount of fermented liquor sold in Kansas is from 6,000 to 10,000 barrels a veer; in SNebraska from 200,000 to 300O,00( oar - rels, and in Missouri from 2,000,000o to I 3,000,000 barrels.
