city" The following answers with others were received which will be
printed in this space.
Hon. J. F. Bailey, Mayor of Horton, Kansas, says :
"Don't let any one make you believe that prohibition is a
failure, for it is not. We don't have one drunk man in Horton
now to where we had 25 when we had saloons."
Hon. W. D. Nichols, Mayor of Abilene, Kansas, says:
"Does prohibition prohibit in your city? Yes, practically.
How many arrests for drunkenness last year? 4. What has
has been the financial effect? Good. Men that were no good,
pay their bills now. Men that always rented, now own their
own homes. You know damned well that a man who buys
whiskey every day don't have any money."
Hon. J. L. Morrison, Mayor of Chanute, Kansas says:
"We have two day police, one night policthreTirTall,

thing. Mr. F. W. Frye, City Clerk of Parsons, Kansas, on the question of
"There is no doubt of the good effects of prohibition
morally, financially or otherwise. And, with Commission form
of government, as has the city of Parsons, any city should run
as economically without saloon revenue as with it. Do not
think the people of Nebraska will regret voting for prohibition
of liquor." ' v

The new Carnegie library building
on Vine street is now almost ready
for occupancy, and by the first of
October the public library will be
able to be housed in their new home,
that is certainly a beauty. The deco

ing the woodwork has all been finished
in oak, with the dull varnishes, which
looks very pleasing to the eye. The
walls in this portion of the building
are finished in a delicate tint of light
buff while, the ceilings are in dull
ivory, making a pleasing combination
and one that makes the room bright
and attractive and easy on the eyes
cf the patrons of the reading room.
In the auditorium in the basement the
ceiling is to be finished in the ivory,
with the side walls in a light shade of
green, that will make this a most
dainty and pleasing appearing room.
The floors are finished in the natural
oak and varnished so as to add much
to the extremely pleasing appearance
of the interior of the building. The
book cases and tables are all finished
by Mr. Gobelman and his workmen in
the oak finish. It is really surprising
how handsome the new library is on
the exterior and interior, and it cer
tainly is one of the most needed and
valuable public improvements that has
been made in the city in recent years,
and the library board made no mistake
in selecting Mr. Gobelman to look
after the finishing touches on the
