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
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

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

and some other little items, footing
up a total of above $1,200,000,000, is
dead loss to our nation and our peo
Such governmental financiering is
precisely on a par with that of Mr.

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
