Waterville Sentinel: Natu
rally comes the question : What
is the cause of this tremendous
overturn in the po 1 ical complex
ions of so large a number of ou
municipalities? There is but ont
answer to the question. In the
elections of last week the cause
lav in the dissatisfaction of the
people on account of their an-
tipathy to the Sturgis law. lh.
people of Maine are sensitive on
ihe matter of their usurpation ot
their prerogatives by the cor-
rupt ring that has so long held
sway over them; they are jealous
of their right to manage their
home affairs in their own way
and they now resolve to take «.t-,
(airs into their own hands let
.come what will.
The New Age: In a paper on
"Criminal Laws and Penalties
read at a meeting of the frater-
nity club; the Hon. George M.
Selders of Portland, former attor-
ney general of Maine, spoke
against the Sturgis State enforce-
merit comnms on law. He said
in part: .
"ihe friends of a law frequent-
ly insist on making things worse
by calling for a more stringent
law, assuming that the original
law, which cannot be enforced by
reason of great hostility among
the people, may be enforced by
making it more stringent.
"This kind of legislation is per-
nicious to sav the least. VV hen
any public official fails to perform
his duty under the law, shall we
appoint commissioners to require
him to do it? When the com .
mission fails shall we appoint an-
other commission to supervise
the former one? It looks very
much so in the instance cited.
"Vet this is the tendency of all
such legislation. Ihe final result
cannot be otherwise than harm-
ful. Officials should be required
to perform their proper duties, or
else step down and out. But the
officials are not to bear all the
-blame, by any means. The half-
moral standard behind the law is
frequently the primary cause of
official laxness. Rather than ap-
point commissioners to oversee
the acts of regularly appointed or
elected officers, were it not bet-
ter to go deeper* To amend the
law to meet the general moral
standard? To get at the root ol
not be handled in the most bene-
cial way except through Iscal op-
tion. He cited the experience of
Vermont in changing from prohi-
bition to local option and said
that the cities and towns where
local option is in vogue, the con-
ditions are much better than they
art.' in the prohibitory towns from
tlj(3 fort that where license pre-
vails there (« i(Ns '-Iraokennss "(l
disorder than in thp plage? where
< !L til • . -.1.....
there is proinuuion, for
people can get all the liquor they
want, they do not make as much
of art effort to obtain it as the
people do where it is prohibited.

Portland Press, Republican:
"Congressman David J, 1'oster,
of the First Vermont congression-
al district, a Republican repre-
sentative from the Green Moun-
tain State to the 1 S. House of
Representatives, was in the eity
Thursday evening for the pui
pose of delivering a lecture to the
Portland school teachers. I.iter
in the evening in discussing \a-
rious matters with a reporter, he
spoke of the merits of local op-
tion versus prohibition and gave
it as his opinion that the people
of Vermont were rapidly coming
over to the local option ide i of
regulating the drink traffic
Congressman Foster is a resi-
dent of Burlington. li< was born
in Barnet, Vt„ in 1857, a graduate
of Dartmouth college in the class
of 1880, admitted to the bar in
188;,. lie has held several im-
portant state offices and has been
a member of the ^7th, 58th and
was re-elected to the 5'^th Con-
gress receiving 23,008 votes to'8,-
864 votes for his nearest oppo-
rnr Com 1 ssnvr F->*t r is of
the opinion that the traffic can-
1 CS?3Si0Bal!y when
the uue^;* n is voted on, some
city or town that may have been
working under license will vote
to return to the prohibitory sys-
tem and that the conditions above
referred to prevail and before
long they return to license.
Congressman Foster spoke of
club that existed in Burlington
under the prohibitory system ( 'rie
said that the mem^f| usf;j to
have smok<- lunches find
'I'.cr find that actually fmore liq-
out' Was drank by the members
when the prohibitory law was in
force in that city than under Ii-
c„nse. There was also more|
drunkenness to,be scet) about tno
streets than at any time under |
the license system. j
Congressman Foster said per-1
sonallv he was under the opinion ,
that legislation will not driv c
intemperance from the land bu
that education will doit. He i-
of the opinion that the child
should be taught of the harmful ■
influences of intemperance and
by so doing more would be ac-
complished for the rising genera-
tion than all the legislation in
the world against the drink evil.
One of the greatest temperance
educators thatjtlie world has to-
dav, said Congressman Foster, 1 =
the demands made upon men |
and women for strict integrity
and right living, to the end that
every employe shall at all times
be able to render the most efh-
Icient service. Th;s of couise,
said he, takes into consineration
the fact that business coroora-
1 tions and firms are todav demand-
ing of their employes their best
service, and to render this they
must be sober when on dutv.
Few indeed are the firms that will
tolerate a man with the drink
habit to the extent that he al-
lows his appetite for drink to in-
terfere wit'i the faithful p-rfotm
ance of his duties. This is not
only true with reference to drink-
but it applies to inveterate smok-
ing and excesses that impair
man's health and physical make
up to the extent that he cannot
give his best service to his em-
In speaking of the conditions
in the south where the peo| e
had ralways used liquor freeelv,
Mr Foster says that it is now a
noticeable fact that they a e
more temperate than ever before.
In the states of Kentucky and
Texas there is more real temper-
ance than in some of what have
been prohibitory states and this
has largely been biought about
through the demand of the busi-
ness world for temperate em-
Here is an object lesson of fifty
years standing to modify the en-
thusiasm of some who think their
ideas on the question are the first
ever expressed, are iuvincible,
and if put into practice would
produce a veritable milenium,
when the fact is that others have
traveled the road and found it by
actual experience, misleading,
full of misery and human hatred.

LIKE FINDING MONEY. X
Finiling health is like finding money j |
so think those who are sick. When J ^
you have a cough, cold, sore throat, or N
chest irritation, bttter act promptly jf
like W. C. Barber, of Sandy Level, \ a J .
He says: "I had a terrible chest trouble,
caused by smoke and coal dust en my
lungs; but, after finding no relief in
other remedies, I was cured by Dr.
King's New Discovery for Consump-
tion, Coughs and Colds." Greatest
s-ilc of any cougli or lung medicine in
the world. At all druggists; 50c and
$1.00; guaranteed. Trial bo'.tle free.
Another Itig Reduction in Rates
to California and North-
The railroads leading to the Pacific
coast will place in effect low colonist
| rates again this year. These reduced
i-ate ticket;; will be 011 sale daily from
February 15th to April ith inclu ive.
This gives prospective travelers a
longer period than usual in which to
take advantage of the reduced rates,
baton account of the increasing amount
of travel to the Pacific coast the rail-
roads decided to extend the dates of
sale. Not only are rates in effect to
California and Pacific northwest as last
year, but Old Mexico is also added to
the territory covercd by the red i-tion.
