[Mrs. Jennie ( arr Pittman. CiMtor.l BUSY. A “State Constitutional Feder ation” has been organized in Mis souri with Dr. Palmore, of St. Louis, as President. It was de cided to ask the Governor to call an extra session of the legisla ture to submit Constitutional Prohibition to a vote of the peo ple in the election this fall, and in the event of failure, to work for the election of a Prohibition Legislature and governor for submission in 1910. Thus we see that Missouri, with her Anheu ser Busch domination is seeking to throw off the bondage of drink. Allready 76 counties of her 114, are on the “ dry ” side. If the states which are burdened with I the great money and property | value of the liquor interests can arise in their majesty and repu diate the whole liquor system, it seems to us that Arkansas with only sixteen counties in the west j column, and practically no beer I or distilling interests to consider, 1 that it would be mere child’s ! play in comparison, to get pro hibition. We sometimes feel that the fact that ours would be an easy battle, renders us just a lit tle indifferent, therefore very inactive. Let us get to work with a mighty will before we get so fiinaneiallv entrenched in the meshes of liquordom. DR. BELL. Office In the McRae Building* OFFICE PHONE. 187. RESIDENCE PHONE. 2fe0.
