[Edited by the Press Superintendent of the W.CT.U.of Willmar/) We have known men that have been uiodels in sobriety, industry, and good citizenship, yet their sons have grown up to be shiftless, drunken, law less wretches and a constant menace to good government, directly through the influence of the saloon. And yet you sober, law-abiding fathers are in one sense of the word guilty of your own son's ruin, no matter what your teaching, your advice, and pleading has been to those boys, as long as you are casting your ballot for the license system. Your own as well as other law-abiding father's sons will go down to ruin and disgrace. Vote out the hell holes and be a man in the true sense of the word. FINANCIAL ABSURDITY OF LICENSE. The system ot licensing the saloon is financially absurd because it costs the people fifteen dollars for every dollar and sixty cents received from it in license fees. As Rev. W. T. La raon said not long since in an address in Pittsburg: The net government revenues from the liquor traffic are now considerably above $137,000,000. Fully one-half of this is immediately paid out by the government upon the single items of poverty and crime caused by the traf fic the other half the people pay out privately for the same items of poverty and crime. These bills alone balance the entire income from licenses, so that the direct cost of the liquor, some $800,000,000, the loss of work by 3,750, 000 hard drinkers, estimated at $132, 750,000, the premature death of drunk ards, loss estimated at $116,289,000, and some other little items, footing up a total of above $1,200,000,000, is dead loss to our nation and our peo ple. Such governmental financiering is precisely on a par with that of Mr. Beecher and his pig. He bought the pig for five dollars he fed it forty bushels of corn at fifty cents per bushel, making twenty dollars. He sold the pig for fifteen dollars, and re ported that he made money like dirt on the pig, but that he lost on the corn.—American Issue. Jt J* The liquor trade of this country con templates raising funds to build a war ship to be presented to our govern ment, thus to show their patriotism? Wouldn't it be far better and truer patriotism for them to cease furnish ing the drink which destroys annual ly an army of men? jt jc Dr. Wmilliam Hargreaves, the well known statistician and author of sev eral workB on the economic waste of OFFER THE FOLLOWIN GOOD S AT WINTER CLOTHING Such as ULSTERS OVERCOATS REEFERS SUITS OVERSHOES GERMAN SOX.

I can buy one now at RODLUN & JOHNSON'S for $2.10, and it's a good warm reefer. the saloon, estimates our nation's cfriuhrbill at $1,200,000,000. The pub lic debt of the United States Dec. 1, 1897, was $1,800,000,000, so that our drink bill would have paid our debt within $600,000,000. It was equal to the entire circulating medium of oar country on June 1, 1897, lacking 8400, 000,000. This nation drinks every year the value of the annual product of wheat, corn, rye, buckwheat, potatoes, gold, silver, iron and petroleum, and this is done largely by people in limited cir cumstances. Is it any wonder we hear the cry of poverty.—Backbone. There is a demand for the necessar ies of life, such as groceries, dry goods, shoes, flour, vegetables, furni ture, hardware, meats, in every com munity. This demand must be met. The individuals of a community have a certain purchasing power. If the community sustains no institution that will take the money of the people for the unnecessaries, then the dealer in staple lines will get his full share of the trade. This is why the saloon cur tails the amount of business done by the dealer in the necessaries of life. No business man that votes for the saloon can consistently complain of dull times when his share of the healthy demand thus curtailed is caused by the purchasing power of the community going into the saloon keepers' till. Estimating that each one of the five saloons in one village transacts a business of $50,000 annually and al lowing each saloonUt a gross profit of $25,000, one hundred and twenty five thousand dollars of the profit goes to five individuals, while if we had no saloons this sum would be distributed to all the business men of our town. The question is, does it pay? The business men of Willmar must soon answer.
