Socialists and Citizens
On Boot Legging.
Tuesday evening a large body of
citizens gathered in the Atkins furni
ture room in response to a request of
the local organization of the Socialist
party. This meeting was called in
order to learn the sentiment of the
people as to whether they desired the
law enforced in regard to boot legging.
After a few remarks a permanent or
ganization was formed called the Red
Cloud Civic Association and a com
mittee was sent to wait on the council
which was then in session. The fol
lowing resolution was adopted:
Whereas, There is apparent
need of more stringent enforce
ment of the laws of our common
wealth and city in respect to the
sale and use of intoxicants and
gambling, as well as other Infract
ions of our Statutes and Ordi
nances, and we believe all of our
laws capable of enforcement;
Resolved: That the Civlo As
sociation of the City of Red Clond
and vicinity do pledge to the May
or afid Common Council of our
City our hearty cooperation and
most cordial and earnest support
in every effort for the suppression
of vice end the proper and ade
quate maintenance of all laws on
our Statute books both state and
city and Invoke the prompt and
faithful action of the city author
ities in this matter.

The meeting adjourned to the more
commodious commercial club rooms
and after a little delay the mayor and
oity council appeared before the as
sembly. Thereupon the Socialist local
through its spokesman Wm. Lippln
oott explained to the officials and the
citizens that according to their princi
ples no officer could remain in office
who refuses to obey and enforce the
laws; that they had taken the matter
were held by the elty authorities
That, oflleiul then re ported that there
had been no appropriation made for
such purposes and that there were no
funds available but such ctses proper
ly belong' (1 to the state which hsd
; the machinery und the money to prose
cute such eases. The county attorney
I I !. .. !.. 1 .. I .. I 1. -1 J

eiit stitted that, the county had no
funds for the detection of crime but
that upon Information of private citi
zen and hii nllldavlt sworn to by him
and then placed in the hands of the
officers prosecution could be commenc
ed and the county commissioners
would good-naturedly font the Mils.
The question was allowed to rest
here and a book was passed around
for the signature of those who desired
the law to lie enforced and about two
hundred and fifty dollars was sub
scribed for the purpose suppressing
the unlawful sale of liquor.
Judging from the number of men in
attendance at this meeting public
sentiment is strongly in favor of the
strict enforcement of all laws anil the
various otllchils are In duty hound to
respiet the wishes of publiosentiiuent.
