nomination havo takeu opposllo sides
on this question Wllllnin T. Haines of
Watervllle declaring for resiltimlsslon.
while his opopnent. Pert M. Femald.
Is opposed to such action. Frederick

compromise. Mr. Porunld has been
given the support of nil the churches
and Sunday schools of tho state and
appearances today Indicate his nomi-
nation. Tax reform also enters Into
the question but resubmission Is tho
great and overwhelming Issue.
For fifty years Malno has been try

The democrats are almost a unit In
demanding resubmission of the pro-
hibition question nnd thnt fact may

declared himself In favor of resubmis-
sion. Mr. Fernald has declared him-
self opposed to resubmission. Upon

The churches and conferences and

Hon. likewise tho temperance clubs
and most of tho professional promi-
nent women prohibitionists has de-
clared In favor of Mr. Haines.
Tho arguments for and against re-
submission can be Jirietly mated.
Those who favor resubmission say
thnt In tho first place It Is twouty-
1 five years since tho people have had
an opportunity of expressing them-
selves upon tho subject and that In
tint time conditions have changed
nnd views may bo also changed.
Many or most of the supporters of
the proposition including Mr. Ilalnos
himself say that they believe In pro-
hibition and that they are rouflduiit
that the people would realllrm their
adherence to tho principles thus es-
tablishing; the law moro firmly than
