I The Turn in the Long Lane
It was "back when the world wan younsr," a few
yearn ao, when a few politicians gathered together.
They were wine men in their generation. The
prohibition inue wan being agitated then, somewhat,
and it had found strong opposition which was known
us the "wet" group of voters. ,
These wine men had no views or convictions one
way or the other, but the "wet" group of voters looked
good to them. It was a strong, solid group. It could
be counted on to "vote its convictions."
And so Senator Hitchcock and his group of poli
ticians, tied their kite to the "wet" voter.
It was "good polities'' to do so.
The "wet" w.v.'i; put the Minator and his per
sonal group of politicians into power. And then came
the other wave, the "dry" wave.
For a time, the senator continued to make good
with the "wet" supporters who had placed him in
power. It was safe to do that in the first three or four
years of the senatorial term, fiut as the six years grew
to an end and no relief to the "draught" in Nebraska
w'as in sight, the situation became grave, exceedingly
The lack of convictions of his own, which had been
his chief asset and qualification in securing the "wet"
vote, and in securing the position into which they had
placet! him, had become a liability.
The long lane was beginning to have its turning.
Another meeting of the wise men was called and
out of the minds of the wise men came the decision
that there was nothing else to do but turn "dry," be
The hour was late. It was the eleventh hour, in
fact. Hut still the vote had not been cast and some
thing might be done.
And then the Association Against Prohibition in
Washington, wanting to show their appreciation of
what the senator had done, sent out the endorsement
of his candidacy.
It was a damn fool thing to do.
I5ut the Association was sincere in its apprecia
tion, even if untimely.
And then the long lane really turned.
The senator was compelled to wire the Associa
tion that he couldn't do anything for them any more.
"Heeause he had promised the voters in Nebraska he
would not," and particularly the women voters.
This gave the "wet" voters the opportunity they
had long needed to see the manner of man they had
made in these years.
When the senator was revealed to them by his
last telegram, their idol, too, was broken.
The "wet" voter likes to vote for a man. They
prefer a "wet" man, but he must be a real man.
The "wet" voter doesn't like a "trimmer" any more
than any other real man or woman.
And now who is it that wants this man Hitchcock
The "wet" voter won't have him because he double-crossed
him the first real chance he had to show
The "dry" voter won't have him, because "his con
version came too late" and too soon before election and
in too "dry" a state.
Who is it that wants this man Hitchcock for
