Advantages over Other Loans and Loan
Our loans being made for ten years, 110 new agent's
commission has to be paid at the end of three or five years
if any portion of the debt remains unpaid- Principal and
interest are payable in ordinary money, not gold coin.
The coupons are sent to local bunks for collection .and
all risk of sending money away is eliminated
Having unlimited funds at our command, we are not
dependent 011 the money market; but are always prepared
to make all the desirable loans offered.
Papers are drawn and titles examined in our office and
money paid as soon as loan is approved and title found
No unnecessary delays.
And there are other advantages in dealing with us of
which we shall be glad to inform intending borrowers up-
A few weeks a«o Cyclone Ross
publicly endorsed Carrie Nation and
her hatchet brigade of saloon smash-
ers. Now Gee-Ilog-wash Worthen,
who is starring this territory, ad-
vocates a more lawless method of
enforcing the gambling laws and of
reforming the saloons. •■An irre-
pressible conflict is on." say these
sacred parrots, "and whether by
means regular or irregular, the saloon
is bound to go."
lint it is interesting to note through
what instrumentality these brave he-
temperance workers propose to ac-
complish this work. They are too
cowardly themselves to assault
men and destroy their pro-
perty who sell liquor, but are willing
to gather about them a lot of hy-
sterical old hens whom they counsel
to commit acts of violence that iu
many instances would disgrace a
coterie of drunken harlots. They
pretend to be the friends of tem-
perance, yet they are counseling
intemperance. They are posing as
apostles of peace, yet they are
using what talents they possess to
excite mobs of violence. They have
never been known to lead in any
crusade, but eau always be found in
the rear behind a cordon of petticoats.
They are clamoring for the purifica-
tion of the world,,yet degrading its
womanhood by trying to make of her
a kind of moral scavenger.
If we could banish every form of
intoxicant from the world in a mom-
ent, or after a lifetime of labor, we j
woijd do it without leaving enough
strong drink to till a Campbellite
communion cup. But liquor is here j
with all its attending evils. It is
probably responsible for more crime, ,
more pauperism, more insanity, and ^
more misery than all other evils com-1
bined ; yet it has been here since the ^
day old Noah planted a vinyard and j
made a spectacle of himself. Its,
sale has never been, and in our judg- j
ment, never will be suppressed by
sumptuary law. It cannot be driven
out by bands of religious zealots,
armed with hatchets and goaded on
by cowardly he-fanatics. There is
something radically wrong in the man
who encourages and endorses such
methods. There is something intel-
lectually lacking in women who
shriek and howl for such pastime.
But of the two types of fanatics, the
female is infinitely more to be re-
spected than the he-reformer who
goes about over the country howling
reform at so much a howl and with
not enough moral courage to take a
hatchet and demolish a chicken coop.
