WHAT CODY FOLK DID 25 YEARS AGO Shoshone Valley Rews First Newspaper Here Publishes Happenings April 8,1897 Mrs. Julia Goodman has a copy of the first newspaper published in Cody. It is called the Shoshone Valley News and is about the size of a program. The date is April e, 1897. The editors were Mrs. Goodman’s son, E. Good man, and a man named Gilette. Uncle George Russell is one of its advertisers, and Uncle George tells the world that he is a contractor and builder., whom it would be well to see immediately. H.’P. Arnold through its columns,; urges the sheep men to come and buy their twine, wool sacks, shears and sheep hooks at his emporium. The Shoshone Mine on Sage Creek at Otto Crossing will exchange coal for oats or sell it at the mine for >1.50 a ton. Mrs. Chas. Trego declares in large type that the accommodations at HO TEL DE TREGO are the best in the city. W. P. Webster announces that he deals in clocks, watches and jewelry and does all kinds of repair work. The News says ambiguously of its job work that it is “Out of Sight.” Joseph Vogel publishes the fact that he is a shoemaker and will repair boots neatly and promptly and guar antee satisfaction. According to the Shoshone Valley News, twenty-five years ago . this month C. E. Hayden returned from Parkman and expected Mrs. Hayden to join him in about three weeks. Miss Daisy Sorenson, type-writer for the Shoshone Land and Irrigation Co., returned to Cody after an absence of three months and all her friends were pleased to see her back again. Hon. George T. Beck, general man ager for the Shoshone and Irri gation Co., came <n from the East on Monday and reported extremely “Close times. He stated that he was glad to j return and once more be at home in i Cody. Messrs. Hank and John Chapman I of Clark, Wyo., were in town on Sat | urday night on business connected ; with the building of a telephone line from Cody to Red Lodge. The gentle men spoke highly of Cody and were confident that its future was to be a bright one. o Col. Cody was chosen a member of the General Marshal’s staff for the j Grant Memorial Dedication Day exer cises tn New York City, April 27, and 1 the day had been inade a legal holiday in the state of New York. The return of Hon. Geo. T. Beck was the signal to start work upon the Cody canal. Many settlers had con tracted for land under the ditch and the promoters were confident that more than 10,000 acres would be dis posed of to prosperous and enterpris ing settlers before the year closed. Cody was soon to have a large mer cantile store and also a hardware and implement house. The city was bound to flourish and make the best town in northwest Wyoming. The News also informed its readers that Spain was withdrawing her troops from Cuba. CHANGE OF SENTIMENT TOWARD DRY LAW (Continued from Page 1) Some of the high lights in the rep resentative answers received were an | follows: From Fountain City, Tenn.: “I have | taken the time to ask ten officers of the law in this county their opinions, and every one of them believes that vastly more liquor is being made and consumed than before 'Prohibition.* We have had a wave of crime such as has never before been known. It will take a force of 2,000 paid officers of j the law to keep liquor out of Knox j ville.” A college student who has worked 1 both as a drug clerk and as a teacher in three Wisconsin cities writes: “It has been the cry of the Volsteadites that the younger generation is being saved. The man who says that has his head in the sand. Boys of four teen or fifteen are getting ‘moon’ over the bar In soft drink parlors, former saloons, lunch counters and a dezen other joints. Young girls come to the soda-fountain cabarets, drink ‘white mule,’ dance and go home at 1 to 3 a. m. with obscene-minded young sports. We are doing what we can to stop this thing in our scho6ls, but | instead of public support we find ap athy or amused tolerance.” From Colorado: “The manufacture of beer, wine and liquors is now done in innumerable instances in the home directly under the eyes of the young- Dters, in such away that it not only brings it closer, to them In substance, but It breeds In their young hearts a positive disregard for laws in gen eral.” From California: "People are rap idly losing all respect for law and crime is Increasing. Everyone is" learn ing new methods of making liquor, and at the rale we are traveling, it is only a question of a few years until we will be a nation of booze-making outlaw®.” _ 1 . I Mr. Adams sums up his digest of the nation’s opinion in words which may be at once startling and enlight ening to those who regard their own ultra-pious opinions as final and con clusive. He says: “It is impossible for any candid mind, analyzing the letters, to escape the conviction that, ’broadly speaking, there has been a significant change in the last year; that, whatever the com parison between pre-Prohibition and nost-Prohibition bulk drinking, liquor in the second year of the experiment has been more plentiful, cheaper, and less risky to handle romme.clally or to take internally, than in the first year. One intelligent observer makes an interesting point in stating that people within his ken may be drinking less in total than they did in the ‘wet’ days, but they arq certainly drinking more at a time. "There is more booze In the land and it is cheaper and more varied In tvpe. Home brewing and distilling has vastly increased.” “From the whole purport of the va ried correspondence, it is obvious that the end Is not yet; that ni solution li definitely in sight.
