D. J. Leary and J. Lückert had
a lively exferience while return
ing home from Sisseton Saturday
evening. They were driven to
Sisseton by a local liveryman, in
an automobile, On the way
back, when a few miles out, the
car went "bump," and after
walking a mile they were able to
reach Frank Becker in this city
by telephone, who was asked to
go out with his car and bring
them in. Frank went out, but
did not bring them in—not right
away, for he no sooner started to
do so than he had a breakdown,
and Frank walked another mile
and asked Will Strasburg to go
out and haul them in William is
accommodating, and willingly
went out to assist the party, but
when he arrived there it is said
that he had four flat tires. The
party finally landed in the Valley

Let us glance at the progress
of the work in which we are en
gaged. Somewhat more than a
hundred years ago, the first
temperance society in this coun
try was organized. Since that
time the fight between the
"wets" and the"drys" has never
ceased. The latter have been
steadily gaining at the expense
of the former, until the saloon is
but a tale that is told in a terri
tory covering about two-thirds
of the area of the United States.
Prohibition is also cutting deeply
into the rest of the territory.
The area of the United States
comprises nearly three million
square miles and of this nearly
nine hundred thousand may be
marked off as wet. The popula
tion is more evenly divided,
about half being on each side.
The greater part of the country
ruled by the prohibitionists has
been won during the course of
the last ten or fifteen years un
der the banner of the Anti Sa
loon League, which seems to be
the most effective fighting orga
nization which has ever tried to
fight the use and abuse of al
The first American temperance
society was organized in 1808 by
Dr. William J. Clark in Sarato
ga county, N. Y., but it fell far
short of present standards of
sobriety. The members signed
the first pledge ever given in
this country. This society still
exists and, at its centennial cele
bration six years ago, there met
prominent repreaentative men
and women from all parts of the
country. About 1814, similar
societies were formed in Massa
chusetts and Connecticut.
The first temperance agitator
in America was a celebrated
clergyman from Ixmir Island,
Dr. Lyman Beecher. A result
of his propaganda was the orga
nization of the "'American Tem
perance Union" which already in
1828 had 228 branches, and in
the following year there were
1000 with no less than 100,000
members. At this time many
public men .joined the movement.
Since then it has been a con
tinual fight until in 1914. The fol
lowing states are under absolute
prohibition: Georgia, Kansas,
Maine, Mississippi, North Caro
lina, North Dakota. Oklahoma,
Tennessee and West Virginia.
The same might also perhaps be
said of Arkansas. In the follow
ing states, fifty per cent of the
people are under "no license:"
Alabama, Colorado, Florida, Ida
ho, Indiana^ Iewa, Kentucky,
Louisiana* Minnesota, Nebraska,
New Hampshire, South Carolina,
South Dakota,1 Texas, Vermont
and Virginia. In the following
states this number is estimated
to be between 25 and 50 per cent:
California, Dele ware, Illinois,
Maryland, Massachusetts, Mich
igan, Missouri. Ohio, Oregon,
Utah, Washington and Wyoming.
A strong temperance wave is
also passing over Europe, es
pecially. in France, Germany,
Russia and Italy.
Miss Fern Hobbs, the secre
tary of Governor West of Ore
gon, who, on the refusal of Mayor
Stewart to close the saloons of

Copperfield, Oregon, was sent
by the governor to take charge
of the situation. Accompanied
by Col. Lawson of the Coast
Artillery, who is superintendent
of the state penitentiary, and a
detachment of militia men and
guards, she ousted the mayor
and council and arrested the
officials, closing up the saloons
in the town.
