Let us decide according to evidence,
and the testimony. "Without claiming
for the prohibition law of Kansas perfec
tion in detail and letter, we maintain that
its puipose and intent are fully in har
mony with the spirit of our free institu
tions. In its practical operation the law
promotes the welfare and prosperity
of our citizens of all classes and condi
tions, especially of laboring men who are
struggling by honest work to maintain
their families and educate their children."
Topeka, Kansas, April 16th, 1890.
"We have examined the above state
ment prepared by the president and sec
retary and the ex-president and ex-secretary,
of the Kansas State Temperance
Urion, upon the subject of prohibition
and its results in our state. "We find it a
fair honest and true statement of our con
dition, and we heartily indorse it as such.
Governor Lyman U. Humphrey, "William
Higgine, Seecretary of State; Timothy
McCarthy, Auditor of State; J. W. Ham
ilton, Treasurer of State; G. W. "Winans,
Supt. Public Instruction; L. B. Kellogg,
Attorney General; Albert H. Horton,
Chief Justce; D. M. Valentine and "W. A.
Johnston, Associate Justices.
I have cited the testimony of nine of
the state offices of Kansas; will you ac
cept their testimony? Have not they a
better opportunity to know? Are their
testimonies not more reliable than a re
porter paid by the saloon men? The
temperance people offered to pay a re
porter for the Bee to travel throngh
Kansas and Iowa and report his investi
gations; but the Bee does not want in
formation on that side of the question.
My brother, you who say: - "j would
vote for the amendment if I thought it
woud do any good," read the testimony
of the officers of Kansas and write to
them for furtherfparticulars. Don't list
en to a newspaper which offered to sell
its editorial for money; or some one
prejudiced against prohibition.
Is there a man in Plattsmouth or in
Nebraska, who claims that it would ruin
the city and the state financially, who
desires to prosper the city and the state
at the sacrifice of purity snd sobriety. Is
there one who wants to contrive a busi
ness for the sake of wealth, when he
knows it will make some man a drunkard
and home a wretched hovel. Let us val
ue more highly manhood, sobriety, purity
and the good of others; let us not sell
those for gold or silver.
I have written the above for the con
sideration of that man who thinks the
saloon ia a source of prosperity.
I belive with the officers of Kansas,
that a state will prosper more without
saloons. That sobiiety is a potent factor
in wealth . .

Club of Newark Men Who Us
AVlieel Not for Pleusare Alone.
There U probably no city of its size in
tho United States whefu tlie bicycle is
twod as much around town for practical
business purposes as in Newark. The
city is not so big and crowded as Brook
lyn or New York, and it is qui to con
venient for merchant drummers, law
clerks, brokers and other folks who have
to cover a deal of pavements in the
course of a day's business to stride their
steel and rubler hors and roll swiftly
from office to office or from end to end
of town at no exp'nHo of cab or car fare,
and with much saving of time and effort.
On any of tho business streets there doz
ens of business men can bo seen any day
ppeeding by on low safety wheels. The
highways leading to Roseville and the
Oranges are much frequented by bi
cyclers, many of whom do not wear the
flr-nnel sliirts and knickerlxxikers of the
riuer for pleasure, and carry small sam
ple easels strapped to their machines or
fslunic from their shoulders.
Newark's city ordinances governing
tho use of bicycles in the streets were
until lately quite us liberal as those of
other larjre New Jersey towns. The met
ropolitan c-liara-ctcr of Newark naturally
made the use of the bicycle proportion
ately greater than elsewhere under the
same laws, and the same reasons inoue
the bicycle more of a nuisance in the
streets. That is why the police of New
ark liave been very active recently in
keeping bicycles strictly within the let
ter of the law, and from this has arisen
a novel as-Tociation of bicyclers in that
town, the first of the kind in the coun
try. It isn't a club, it has no club house
aud its members wear no badge or uni
form. It ia purely a business organiza
tion, cluefly of business men, and its
chief objtjct is to look out for the interest
of all bicyclers in Newark, to keep the
city authorities 6tirred up in tho matter
cf maintaining tho streets and roads in
good repair and to influence city legisla
tion in the interest of bicyclers.
The' association calls itself the Busi
ness ilea's Cycle club and accepts any
reputable bicycler or trieycler as a mem
ber, but is particularly anxious to enroll
business men. Tho idea is to collect a
great lot of mimes of men of business,
prominence and influence, so that when
the club asks the city lawmakers to
grant some new privilege to wheelers, or
abolish some ordinance restricting bicy
clers, or to mend some bad piece of
pavement, or to open a new street, or to
grade a road, the request will have the
backing of a lot of men whose names
will carry weight with the city govern
ment. Business men who use bicjrcles
there are joining the movement in con
siderable numbers, and the members
have already begun a campaign upon
all the business me; of their acquaint
ance, dilating . . on the health and
pleasure to be had in bicycling, and urg
ing them to buy wheels and learn to
ride, and then to join the association.
The club proposes to wage a heavy war
upon had roads for a radius of ten miles
around Newark. New York Sun,

the supremo court of Victoria has de
cided that it is not libel i ros. A colonial
newspaper charged a shire councillor
with having "tidily winked the shire
funds." Litigation ensued, and the mat
ter was carried on appeal to the highest
tribunal in the colony, with the afore
said results. Some fifty English dic
tionaries were brought into court to en
able the judges to ascertain what was
the real meaning of the word, but "tid
dly winking" was not discoverable in
any of them. So they accepted the defi
nition of the witness that the phrase
conveyed to his mind the idea of "using
little lo3ges to obtain one's own ends."
An imputation of that sort the court de
cided was not necessarily libelous.
