MORE PROOF OF THE FAILURE OF PROHIBITION. governor Brewer of Mieeleelppl Sayet Can't Enforce the Law. (From the Mobile Regleter, Auguet 17, 1912 ) And now comee additional evidence of the failure of prohibition from far away Mi-sisslppt. Mrs. Harriet B. Wells, president of the Mississippi W. C. T. U. has written to the gover nor of her state Informing him that NEVER BEFORE has there been such wide open sale of liquors as is now be ing experienced in the cities of "DRY" Mississippi. Vicksburg Is said to be a veritable pool of liquor and the con ditions are steadily becoming worse. In reply to the complaint of the W. C. T. U. leader the governor of the state Is reported to have written the follow ing: (By Governor Brewer) “My attention has just been called to an article which appeared In a last Sunday’s paper that purported to be an open letter from you to me. In which It Is stated that you are In formed that never before has there been such a wide open sale of illicit liquors In that city, referring to Vicks burg. This condition of affairs, I am Informed, has existed for the last two years of the administration of my pre decessor, and I understand that you frequently conferred with him on the subject, and that you were advised by him and by the late C H. Alexan der that the governor was without power to enforce the statute. "Such steps as are within the power given or could be taken within the lim its prescribed by the constitution and laws, I have already taken. In fact, I think I have gone the limit, and If you have any suggestlona to offer that will aid or assist me in an honest ef fort to enforce this -tatute I would be glad to receive then.. ’ WILL MR. LAUGHBAUM OF THE ANTI-SALOON LEAGUE EXPLAINT Superintendent Laughbaum of the Anti-Saloon League Is speaking In the various communities of Colorado and he tells hts auditors that state-wide prohibition is a success In Oklahoma. Read what the Dally Oklahoman has to say on this subject. (From the Dally Oklahoman, Au gust 22, 1912): "Nearly two hundred persons In Oklahoma City have A old a tax to the federal government so that the federal officers will not disturb these two hun dred persons for selling liquor. Now then, why haven't the enforcement of ficers found out who these persons are and why haven’t they taken ac tion that they swore they would take? How long will present conditions con tinue? This Is a campaign year. Pos sibly candidates for public office don’t want to antagonize the boot leggers, but are the people satisfied to have public officials enforce a few laws and neglect others. Ask your self if you are proud of the officials who have sworn to enforce the law, yet permit three times as many sa loons in Oklahoma City as we had before we had the prohibitory law.’’ Oklahoma’s prohibitory law is be ing openly and notoriously violated, and Mr. Laughbaum knows this to be true. Why would hs force such con dli.vus upon the state of Colorado? Can the fact that he Is being paid for his activity have any beailng on hU attitude? COLORADO BUSINESS MEN S HOME RULE LEAGUE. Just one report horn Fort Smith of seizures made of contraband liquor en route to Oklahoma tells of the confis cation of a shipment of coffins loaded with five-gallon Jugs of whiskey con cealed In a load of wood, In a box of merchandise billed to a woman's name, and supposed to contain dry goods, and In a box of books, which last would have gone through unsus pected, but that the "literature" sprang a leak. And so the farce goes on of at tempting to enforce state-wide prohi bition laws which never have been on forced, never will be and never can be in communities where public sen timent opposes them. Meantime, enough stuff gets through undetected to make It worth while for 1,658 re tailers and thirty wholesalers to pay the government special liquor tax In t*.e state-wide prohibition state of Gk.ahoma FIRST VIEW NEWS.

Brother Winds father, who was also a Luthean minister had the distinction of founding churches at Cheyenne, Wyo., Greeley, Colo, and other places. They went to Chi cago and established a church in south Chicago which has since grow it to a large and influential congregation, If you want to place a capable, efficent and trustworthy man in the sheriff’s office you can do it by voting for Frank Williams. Cheyenne county would have been without a sheriff for the past ten years had it not been for the fact that Frank Williams was here and could be called on at any time to carry out the duties of the sheriff’s office as his deptuy, which office he has been holding for some years past. Whenever there has been any thing to do in the sheriff’s office that required the exercise of good judgement and a little nerve and especially if an important arrest was to be made Frank Williams was always the man to do it. Now vote him into the sheriff office and let him be sheriff No. 1 and we will guarantee there will be no other sheriff.
