clearly the- attitude of Theodore
Roosevelt toward statutory prohibi

reading and Is as follows:
"The grand jury of Cook county,
Illinois, in session at Chicago, has
found an indictment for criminal libel
against William P. P. Ferguson, edi
tor and publisher of the National Pro
hibitionist, published in Chicago. The
complainant Is Holman Day of Maine

published in Harper's Weekly, elicited
the libel for which Ferguson has been
Indicted. The Harper articles atr

utterance, stated that the conditions
as pictured In the articles existed In
Maine, since Mr. Day was in a posi
tion to know whereof he spoke; and
then the editor of the National Pro
hibitionist proceeded to make a wan
ton attack upon the moral character
of Mr. Day, imputing to him offenses
so ridiculously and 'shamefully false
that the state of Maine, of which Mr.
Day has been a widely "known and
honorable resident all his life is In

friends of Mr. Day who wrote.vfrom
all parts of the country to urge him
to take steps to punish such reckless
vfllfiers was Colonel Henry Watter
son of Kentucky, whose name ap
peered in the libelous editorial as
one who felt that Mr. Day needed
the endorsement that Colonel Watter
son had given him in the Courier
Journal. At the suggestion of Colonel
Watterson Mr. Day engaged H. H
Huffaker, Esq., of Louisville, an -able
attorney and a personal friend of
Colonel Watterson's, and ' with him
proceeded to Chicago armed' with
complete refutation of the charges
contained In the organ of the prohl

"The indictment followed promptly
and the case has been marked foi

statement:
The Anti-Saloon League county op

because it is county "option," but be

which, if successful, will wipe county
"option" out ot existence.

But with county prohibition they are
confident it will be impossible to de

Dry Only In Name.
(Portland Daily Argus.)
That an increase in "dry" territory,
so-called, does not Indicate a corre
sponding advance In temperance, has
been demonstrated again and again.
Missouri furnishes the latest illustra
tion of this fact In that state this
year more than half the counties are
without licensed saloons, but accord
ing to a report just filed with Gover
nor Hadley by the state beer in
spector, the collections under the beer
stamp law are nearly $19,000 greater
this year than last when the area
of "wet" territory was much larger.
This report covers a period of ten
months, including October and the in
creased sales indicated by it, as the
Boston Transcript points out, must
have been of beer consumed in the
state, because that made for sale out
side of it is not subject to the tax.
understanding that all laws
governing the sale of liquor shall be
enforced to the letter.
We favor obedience to the law for
iwo reasons:
1. Because It Is right.
2. Because only by strict enforce
ment of the present Nebraska liquor
laws can Nebraska escape prohibition
We are -glad to be able now to

Bishop Scanneli's Admonition.
Rt. Rev. Richard Scannell, bishop
of the Catholic diocese of Omaha, de
livered a notable sermon at St
Cecelia church in Omaha Sunday, No
vember 14. The bishop adaionlahed
the women to eschew politics.. He
criticised the activities of the woman
temperance crusaders. On thi nnint
ue saia:
"Instead of these women striving
tor louu aosunence they should be
working In the cause of temperance,"
said Bishop Scannell. "Men have a
practical judgment In this matter and
do not look for the. ideally perfect
Therefore, I see no advantage to be
derived from the women being ad
mitted into the political arena."

Effects of No-License Booze
(Worcester Post)
"It is easy enough for me to see
the effects of no-license," said a drug
gist to Saunterer this morning. "Ev
ery morning there is a line of men
at my soda fountain waiting for their
bromo, a drink that Is supposed tc
take down the head of the morning
after, and they come In here in an
awful condition. Their hands some
times shake so that they can't lift the
bromo to their mouth without using
both hands. This no-license booze is
certainly the stuff that kills. And
the most pitiful thing about it is the

Right of Trial by Jury.
(Louisville Courier-Journal.)
The state of Alabama, which has
'been in a condition of aberration for
some time, now proposes to with
draw right of trial by jury in an ef
fort to enforce the Fuller law pro
viding for the abolition or liberty in
the interest of an anti-liquor crusade.
While the right of trial by jury is
customarily spoken of as inalienable,
it is so only when a state of sanity
in the body politic is presumed. The
federal constitution protects the right
against violation by congress and the
federal judiciary, but except as they
are restrained by their own constitu
tions, states may abolish the jury sys
tem. The extremism expressed in the
Fuller law made it plain when the
bill was passed that the forces behind
it were slated for ultimate defeat
The next exploit ot the fanatics was
to inaugurate a movement to amend
the Alabama constitution in the in
terest of the Fuller law. Now comes
as a logical development an effort to
gain the desired end by denying the
accused liquor sellers the right to be
.tried under a system that has stood
for some seven centuries in the most
highly civilized countries, despite its
timUted defects. Anti-prohlbitlonlsts
j Alabama should ball this latest de-
lir.-r-eut Joyously. It will hasten
1 .!-rJiruw of the opposing forces.
(Portlenu Oregonisn, Oct. 20. l09.)
The Oregorlan stands for strict
regulation of the liquor trade, and for
strict enforcement of the regulations.
It opposes prohibition because it does
aot consider prohibition reasonable or
just; because it authorizes and pro
vides unnecessary restrictions upon
personal conduct and private right;
because it forces a secret trade that
is more injurious than the open trade
under regulation; because it strikes
a blow at many useful and important
industries; because its enactment by
any state is a sign of narrow provin
cialism, and Oregon ought to be kept
out of this class of states. To enter
It would be hurtful in many ways to
.her reputation for sanity, and in
.many ways hurtful to her business
'and industry. A prohibition state is
a small, wrangling community. Wash
ington and California will not be pro
hibition states. Should we adopt pro
hibition it would be one of many other
proofs that we were falling behind
in the race of progress; that the
"dry rot" had not only struck us, but
had sunk deep. No pun intended in
the phrase about "dry rot."
On this subject, now a year in ad
vance of the time when the vote on
state prohibition is to-be taken, The
Oregonian uses the opportunity to de
clare its position. It knows it must
declare its position frankly on the
subject; and it cannot shirk the duty
It knows, moreover, that its readers
who consider this subject from a
reasonable point of view will agree
with It; that others, who simply con
sider the subject from the standpoint
of their opposition to a trade that
in irresponsible hands becomes an in
strument of abuse and must be sub
jected to correction of law, statutory
and moral, will npt agree with it

when the customs of the people, their
social conditions and wants, the va

and industry, do not call for the legal

are not only vain empty, that is to
say but in many ways may be posi
tively hurtful. Morality is not based
on law, but law on morality. They
who desire to prohibit In their own

The opportunity has been abused as
The Oregonian foretold it would be,
by enabling the rural districts tc
force prohibition on the county towns
that didn't want it. This forcing pro
cess is now to be attempted on all
Oregou on all protesting towns and
cities and communities in the stat6
of Oregon. It is the opinion of The
Oregonian that it will not succeed;
but should it succeed the consequence
will bo injurious to the state in many
ways in u multitude of ways ma
terially, industrially and morally by
giving the state an undesirable repu
tatioo. iu company with the narrow
ness of Maine and Kansas; by keep
ing people out of our borders who
have breadth of view and want rea
sonable freedom of action; by gener
ating a secret traffic and setting the
meanest among us to spy upon their
neighbors; by weakening personal
and moral responsibility among those
whom the' state would undertake to
coddle and to protect (or kill) with
kindness. Character, neither for in
dividuals nor for states, is made in
this way. Personal responsibility Is
basis of all. There are other features
of the argument which, perhaps, may
be developed later particularly as to
tliu offensive intrusion of clericals and

an instrument for holding the ascend
