It seems that the kicks which were
put up by the country press against

The editor of the Albion Argus
thinks we are joking when we say that

SOME MORE FACTS.
In order that the people who ves-
tiou the veracity of the editor of this
paper regarding the success of Lincoln
being dry may make up their minds
that we know what we are talking
about, we publish the following inter
view with a member of the firm of
larpham Bros., wholesale harness
We employ fifty-eight men
in the factory just the same as
we did last year. Of these four
teen drank to excess and fourteen
others were regulur drinkers.
Very often some of our men were
arrested for carousing and often
the hard drinkers were unable to
put in full time or were incapac
itated for heavy work. Their
money was used up and their
families were often in distress.
Now the same men are first class
workmen. Only one of the whole
number has been off on sprees
since the saloons closed. The
others are regular in their work
and we never smell liquor on them.
They have quit the practice of
coming to the office for small ad
vances during the week. Several
of them are buying homes for the
first time in their lives. Some of
them were bitter when the town
voted dry. The same ones fre
quently told us since that they are
glad the saloon has gone.
We are in a position to furnish
plenty more such evidence.a great deal
of it coming from men who predicted
before the dry spell that it would not
be a success. Do you want it?
The Journal was asked to print
a long eulogy of Senator Burkett,
taken from the Blair Pilot. No
room could be found for it at this
time for the reason that the arti
cle suggests that Burkett is an
"insurgent." If this is true then
th? editor of this paper can have
no use for Senator Burkett nor
any other off colored politician.
We take our politics straight.
We will either support a republi
can or a democrat. Mavericks
and mugwumps are not to our
liking. Fdl ditij Journal.
CJood for the Journal! However,
we can hardly agree with the editor
on thelpoint which he makes that
Senator Burkett is an "insurgent."
As we look upon Senator Burkett,
he is a "progressive" but not an "in
surgent." Our idea of the matter is
that a man can be a "progressive'
and still be a "regular." But be can
not be an "insurgent" and also a
regular. A man can be a progres
sive" and use his brains in a way
which will bring results, but when he
gets so "progressive" that he hasn't
sense enough to distinguish between
republican "do something" and dem
ocratic "do nothing," then he becomes
an "insurgent." When he thinks
that the only help that can come to
the country must be had by a coalition
with the democratic minority in con
gress, then he leaves the ranks of the
"progressives" and steps over the
line into the ranks of the "insurgents."
A "progressive" is a progressive as
the word signifies. An "insurgent"
is an insurgent just the same way.
We feel a great deal like the Journal
does as between an "insurgent" and
a democrat, we would support a dem
ocrat, but we would have to be awful
drunk to do either one.
