Vile Saloons that Threaten Society
to be Wiped Out—The Poor Man to
Be Given a Better Chance.
The "joint" must go!
The vile, disreputable saloon, with
its allurements to youth, its poison-
ous concoctions, its infamous dance
be establshed in our great cities. Let
us be clear-sighted Idealists, for only
to that extent shall our ideals and de-
votion to them prevail.
"Of primary importance to the re-
former," said Bishop Spalding, "are
the evils of the dance hall when main-
tained in connection with the saloon
and the enforcement of the ordinance
regarding the closing hour. It is the
late closing that strikes at the heart
of the family life."

The purpose of the promoters of the
enterprise is to serve pure liquors and
food at low prices under the best pos-
sible moral conditions. In his address
Bishop Potter said the keynote of true
reform had been struck by the estab-
lishment of a social gathering place I

and women could secure refreshment

"The effort to bar the saloon," said
Bishop Potter, "Is one of the most
comic and tragic failures of history.
The inauguration of a resort like this
is in many respects the greatest social
movement that New York has ever
known. The Republic is not to be
saved by theories, or by electing this
man or that man, but by recognition
of great ideals.

male, bond or free. To the thorough
and efficient work of Hon. Chas. M.
Thacker there is possibly more cred-
it due for the splendid conditions now
prevailing in our official family than
to any other person. His services
and opinions are continually sought
by the rest of the official s, all the
time his own work being as much as
two ordinary persons could be ex-
expected to accomplish. His record
as a prosecutor could not have been
excelled, and as proof of this we
point you to the hecords of the dis-
trict court and to the subterranean
coal fields of the State of Kansas.
He has steadfastly refused to have
thtr*county furnish him an assistant,
although possibly every other coun-
ty in this territory is furnishing one,
solely because he maintains that in
the face of the fact that the law does
not provide for an assistant, therefore
the commlssdoners have no power to
employ one. No brighter tribute
of his efficiency as an upholder of the
law can be found than in the fact
that the juries of this county 'ia\.
uniformly returned verdicts alonss the;
lines of Ms efforts and contentions.

In the person of the democratic
nominee for County Clerk the people
of Greer County have one of the
cleanest and at the same time one
of the best and most competent men
in the county to vote for this year.
Floyd McNeil is a man, every inch.
His clerical ability is known and ap-
preciated. He has held positions
with many firms in each of which he
gave the utmost satisfaction. His
two years of experience in the clerk's
office eminently qualifies him for the
duties which he will assume on the
first of next January.and no one can
doubt for a moment but that In giv-
ing Floyd their support in the com-
ing election that they will be doing

thoroughly energetic, and a gentle-
man withal. Vote for him.
Prof. J. E. Taylor.
The gentleman who captured the
democratic standard for County Su-
perintendent of Public Schools at
the late contest Is a man whose long
residence In the county has given
him a wide acquaintance with the epo-
ple, and through that acquaintance,
their endearment. It Is safe to say
that no teacher In the county has
ad the work of the school-room nearer
to heart than Prof. Taylor and none
have shown a greater degree of com-
petency In the fulfillment of those du-
ties. He Is a careful anti pains-
taking worker, thoroughly up-to-date,
and It is safe to say that no one in
the county could do more for the ad-
vancement of our public school sys-
tem than Prof. Taylor.

Everyone who knows him has the
judgment. Mr. Cole's official duties
are at all times subjected to the
strictest scrutiny and he has most
■bly stood the test. No treasurer
has worked harder to transact the
arduous duties of an office than he,
and it Is' safe to say that none has
given more general satisfaction. It
is a well-known fact that where a
treasurer does his duty he Is bound
to make enemies, but In this line Mr.
Cole has been exceedingly fortunate;
he has shirked no responsibility and
treated eyeryone as the duties of his
office would require. The people

"We propose to enlist the sympathy
of sane and practical men to remedy
the evils of the low saloon. We are
prepared to endure the utmost cyni-
cism and skepticism, but approach
our task In the utmost seriousness."
Bishop Potter concluded by wishing
every success to the movement. The
formal opening ended by tho singing
of the doxology.
In commenting on BlBhop Potter's
unusual course In speaking as above,
Bishop Spalding, the great prelate of
the Roman Catholic church, located
at Peoria, Ills., said In part:
"As this new saloon tends to mltl-
Kate the old evils, It may be accepted
•a a fortunate compromise measure.
