Saloon and Crime
At Watonga, last Wednesday
seventeen cases were tried in
police court—eleven were up for
gambling, three for being drunk
and tfitree for disorderly conduct.
The week before a bunch of
gamblers were in court. These
cases illustrate a truth that is
incontrovertible: that fully nintj-
five per cent of all crime can be
traced directly or indirectly to
the saloon. Whenever the- sa-
loon is driven out the gambling
den and the brothel go with It.
Neither of these last named in-
stitutions can exist without the
saloon. Out of 42 indictments
returned by a Blaine county
grand jury samething over a
year ago, 35 of them came direct
ly from the saloons of the
county. Search the criminal
records of Blaine county and
this awful truth will be revealed:
ninty per cent of all the money
paid by the taxpayers for crimi-
nal prosecutions — and the
amount will be far up in the
thousands—has been paid be-
cause of the saloons of the
county. No good can be said of
the saloon. It's whole history
is one of crime, misery and woe.
bottle of beer whenever he want
ed it. Still we hear the old cry
that prohibition will not prohibit.
The fact is there never was a
law that soloonkeeper3 would
not violate. If a legitimate busi-
ness institution violated the law
as flagrantly as the saloon does,
that business couldn't stay in
the community a fortnight. The
liquor business cannot be regu-
lated, for it has no respect
either for the laws of God or of
"We can never create a public
sentiment strong enough to sup
press the dram-shops until God's
people take hold 'of the temper
ance reform as a part of their
religion."—Theodore L. Cuyler.
"No one supposes that law
can make men temperate, but
law can shut up these dram
shops which facilitate and feed
intemperance, which double our
taxes, treble the peril to proper-
ty and life, and make the mas
ses tools in the hands of design-
ing men to undermine and crip-
ple law."—Wendell Phillips.
The hand writing on
the wall is becoming more legi-
ble every week. The people of
the county are not inclined to
rally to the wishes of designing
bankers when they exercise the
right of suffrage.
The Woman's National Trade
Union League recently held sim-
ultaneous meetisgs in New York,
Boston and Chicago. All meet-
ings were largely attended. The
coming of the industrial women
into the suffrage ranks will
greatly strengthen those ranks,
because the self supporting
woman is determined and be
cause she is self respecting.
What women sadly need today is
self respect. They sit quietly
by and hear themselves declared
intellectually inferior. They
allow their own sons to speak of
them as dependents.—Contrib.

Citizens of Geary were drag-
ged through three terms of
the district court because of
an assault case finally determin-
ed last fall. This case cost
Blaine county several hundred
dollars. As is usually the case,
considerable interest was mani-
fested. and a great deal was
said as to the merits of the
cause. Yet, the whole thing can
be traced directly to a saloon in
Geary where the defendant
bought liquor and became in-
toxicated. The man who com-
mitted the offense is in the peni-
tentiary where he ought to be.
The man who sold him the stuff
that made him commit the crime
is still in Geary, doing all he can
to make more criminals and ruin
more homes. Voters, can you
afford to give this man or any
other man a license to make
your county a hot bed of crime?
