From u moral standpoint the li ceiiHi'U snloon, as wo now It Is un indefensible proposition. Very few, If any, will nrjriii' that it promotes the morality of society in jteneral, on the contrary, everything Km's to prove that as the local option senti ment prevails there is a c orresponil Inc increase in morality as well as in the improvement of business and financial conditions. A very few considerations conclusively estuli lisu this general statement. Ill The law Imposes upon the saloon regulations and taxes such as nre imposed upon no other liusl ness. The uriruiiieiit for hiifh li cense is thut the number of saloons can he diminished, more closely broui;ht to conformity with these ((.'illations in the eyes of the law. The saloon does not stand for mor ality. It Is tolerated rather than a legitimate business. ('Ji On the days of elections tin saloons are all closed by law, be cause of their pernicious Influence. Cli In times of public excitement communities invariably order the saloons to be closed. They are n rcpirdcd ns eimaueil in a businc., which excites the passions of men, cause riots at such times und pre vent the enforcement of law. (4) The saloons ale frequently and generally closed in times of public calamity, instanced by the days following the eai'thipinke and (Ire at San Francisco. Here atraiii the closing was to prevent the saloons becoming a center of vice, to prevent the inllumluK of passions and to enable the ofllcers to enforce the law. In "passing, this closing of saloons in Kan Francisco was most beneficial in its etfocts. () Where the snloon and saloon Interests are most influential crime abounds, (frantinn, for the sake of argument, all that is said against the enforcement of prohibition meas ures, with very few exceptions lo calities under prohibition show a decrease in crime. (Ii In closly nettled commuul tiea, large cities, the saloons are most numerous where the criminal and law breaking classes abound. This is especially true of those parts of the city wherein it is attempted to segregate vice. ("I The story of broken homes of blood shed, of (loverly, of want Is a long one. W hile the stun total of these evils cannot be charged against the saloon, it Is a fair statement that nu exceedingly large part of the story has its orgln in llipior and in the huIoous that sell liquor. (Si The saloons are a constant source of evil ver exerted over the youth of a community. A vote against the saloon moans that the father is removing from the devel oping life of bis hoy one source of evil which, if he conies under its power, will wreck him physically, mentally and morally and in its path will lead him to vices other than drink. There may ho tempta. tiuii to drink without the saloon, there will be temptations to vice when it Is gone, but these tempta tions will be decreased with its abolishment. Effects of Prohibition Beneficial. It has been charged elsewhere and will be charged III St. Francois county within the next few weeks that prohibition is a failure; that it bankrupts cities and counties; that It does not accomplish Its purpose of decreasing the use of liquor and the evil effects of that use. It Is probable that somn paid agent of the liquor Interests will stump the county as they have done else where, making such charged, es pecially at the close of the cam paign when they think It will he difficult to gather inforniotlon to refuse charges that are made. It is probable that here, ns elsewhere, some person who does not use liquor In any form will b sent to investi gate conditions in local option com munities, interviewing certain ones and bring back some report that is erroneous, if not garbled. Theso are the methods that have been em ployed in other counties during the campaign. There la sufficient evident of the working of local option to show that werever tried It Is beneficial. The state of Kansas, and especially Kansas City, Kansas, will be pointed to us a glaring example of the failuro of prohibition. Mr. Vernon Rose, an ex-chief of police of Kansas City, Kansas, in a speech made at Columbia during the cam paign in Boone County, stated that conditions la Kansas City have been much worse since the abolishment of the Joints; that the city has run into debt because of lost revenue; that more murders have taken place during the closing period than at any former time of like length. Mr. Rose was ousted from office for nullification. In two elections men have been elected to office fav orable to law edforcemeut. Over against the statement made by Mr Hose are the following: This letter is from the cashier of the ('oiimier clal Hank, the largest bank in Kan sas City, Kansas. "Replying briefly to your letter of the 12th with reference to various statements made by Mr. Vernon J. Hose in his speech for the anti-local optioulsts In Columbia, Mo., 1 would state unequivocally and posi tively, upon my reputation and honor as a business man and citi zen, that I believe this city Is infini tely better olf in every way as a result of the shutting lip of the Joints; that I believe that HI per cent of the reputable business men of this city would make the same statement and that I believe Mr. Hose knows better than to make any such statements as he has made. His arguments can he answered in detail very satisfactorily if it Is necessary. Hes t fully, ('. L. HKOKAW, Cashier. Mr. C. W. Trickett writes: "Re flylng to your letter of February Hth will say that the period during which Mr. Vernon Hose acted as chief of police of this city was the most corrupt and expensive that the city lias ever known; the great est deficit for the same length of time was during his administration. In other words, the city ran deeper in debt during the time that be was chief of police and permitting saloons to run open ond deriving revenue from them, than at any other period before or since of the same duration. His statement as to tne increase of crime is un absolute fabrication and not borne out by facts." With regard to the conditions in the Stutc of Kansas, the following is un extract from a letter sent di rectly to the Publicity Committee by (Jovernor E. W. Hock. "I am extremely busy and cannot take the time to refute this great array of fabrication in detail, but you may say for me in a general way that prohibition In Kansas is enforced In nearly all the ld.'i coun ties as well as any other penal statute, that we have the only state capital in the 1'niled Stale, a town of oO.IKW population, absolutely with out a saloon; that for a year and a half the largest town in the stale, Kansas City, Kns., has been abso lutely without a saloon, something that cannot be said of any other town of its size in the 1'niled States; that public sentiment in that town lias been revolutionized by the en forcement of the law there; thut the town Is more prosperous to-day than ever before In its history; that there are no 1 ,tlf M),4NM) people on earth, in my judgement, so free from the evils of the liquor trnfllc as are the people of Kansus; that no similar number of people anywlicre are relatively as prosperous. Pro hibition bus worked wonders for this state morally, intellectfually and financially, and any report to the contrary by anybody can be over whelmed with facts to prove Its falsity." (Signed) K. W. HOCH." Letters can be quoted from so many other business men of Kansas City, Kas. whose integrity is un questioned that there is no doubt of the entire correctness of the above statements. In Alabama. On January 1st prohibition went into effect over the whole of the coal and iron country in the State of Alabama. In Birmingham during the month of December under sa loons there were 1,114 arrest, or an average of .'ill a day. The total for January under local option was 'Mis or 14 a day. In December the street gang had an average of .'ill white men, in January the average fell to .'1. On one day in the latter part of January only one person was sent to the street gang and on another day the police Judge did not take in a cent. In Bessemer, Knsley, Gad sden, Jasper and Annlston, iron and steel working towns: "Where 12 to 15 persons were wont to face the po lice Judge every morning, each report days when there was no busi ness in the court. There was not a homicide case in any of those cities In January." An official of the l S. Steel cor poration at Knsley bus made this statement; "3(1 men were killed by one kind of kind of accident or an other during December in mines, furnaces und mills of this company; the record of accidents In January show a decrease of (10 per cent." In Georgia. On January Ltith In Atlanta, Ga. under local option for the first time In the history of the city a session of the police court was held without a cent of money realized In fines. "As a result of the small number of arrests under prohibition there Is not a white prisoner In the stockade to-day. January 29th. Under the rule of liquor such a situation as this was never known before." In Missouri. Judge H. 1), Oreenof West Plains, Missouri, writes as follows: My Dear Sir: Replying to yours of recent date would say: Local option went into effect in Howi II county ami city the first of last year. We have had the opportunity of seeing the effect of it and 1 can say, and believe the citizens gener ally would Join me in saying that the ciTcct of local option has been wonderfully good. Of course the old confirmed drink ing ship It in but the saloons being closed the temptations In that re spect are removed and therefore those not given uq to strong drink do not use it. Without the open saloon the young men are no becoming ad dicted to the use of strong drink. The annexes, gambling and bawdy houses, went out with the saloons. In truth, since the saloons went out of business here our town Is five hundred per cent better, mor ally, mentally and spiritually. We have found it easy to enforce local opt Ion; we have a Judge IW. N. K.viius) with a strong backbone and be sees that not only the local option law is enforced but thai all other laws are enforced. We have bad but one case where this law was violated; I be defendant was tried by a Jury and the sen tence was a line of ifTiKl.on und six months In the county jail. This trial accuiTcd just after local option went into effect end the result was "an eye opener." Our city has a population of about four thousand and it is a rare thing to see a drunken man. Our town is prosperous and our business men generally will bear me out in saying their trade is better now than it was before local option went into effect. Tim wage earner Is now buying something to cut, stockings, clothes Ac. for his family; formerly this money went to enrich the saloon keeper. As you know the open saloon bus been permitted solely and wholly because it was believed to be a source of revenue. In other words, It has been money on one aide, hu man lives and happy homes on the other and to day the quest ion is on the 1 1 11 est i 1 1 1 1 is on which side should stand. (Signed I 11. D.

Mrs. Sarah Piatt Decker was en tertained last week In Oinaba by the clubwomen of that city, the confer- eni f Charities and Corrections bciiiK held at the same time, to make her visit more Interesting. Mrs. Decker tells a story of n dilll- culty she had In her own citv of Denver. She had sinned her name to an appeal to council, but neg lected to name her occupation, a man was sent out to supply the de ficiency. "What is your business?" be asked. "Housekeeper," an swered Mrs. Decker. "Thai ain't no business," declared the man, more forcibly than raininatically. "Well, I collect nil my rents, pay all my own bills, am father and mother to my child und take care of all my business," ventured Mrs. Decker. lo you have 1111 olllce down town'.'" asked the man. "No, I transact all my business from this desk." "Well that don't ml," said the utn'onviiici'd man. Then Mrs. Di cker explained that she was president of the (ienetal Federation of Women's Clubs, composed of MMI.IXKI women, was on all sorts of national committees and was, in fact, the busiest woman in the 1'nited States, lo all of which the man turned a deaf ear.
