Prohibition has now boon on tri

fact that as much liquor has boon so

Kansas towns and villages , but in i

shown itself , the prohibitionists ha
boon so outspoken , so aggrosssiv
and so supremely positive in their dc

sas and outside of the state has bei
that public opinion was largely

authorities were willing to ignore
and permit its violation.
The result of the local elections i
Kansas last week afford proof positr
that prohibition in Kansas is a pracl
cal failure. R From all sections of tl :
state the intelligences cpmcs that tl
prohibition candidates were beaten i
three cases out of every four. Tl :
prohibition issue entered into tl
campaign in every town in the stal
and every other local question was ij
nored. The prohibitionists were nj
groasivo and confident. They raise
the black flag , giving no quarter an
asking for no concessions. And th
election returns show that Governc
St. John had overshot the mark , Eve
Topeka , the political capital and fout

elected an anti-prohibition council b
a largo majority. ( At Olatho , thohom

: ho liquor traftto never was moro at

Kansas by indictment has failed , an
ho revenues formerly' derived by th
people of Kansas from the liquor tral

While Kansas 'has boon mak

mock the evils of interaporanCb b ;
ogulation and restriction.
The high license law passedby tin
ast legislature was in the lino'of rog
ilation and not prohibitory , as wai
laimed by some at the time of iti
lassago. It does not make liquoi
oiling a crime or purchasers of liquoi
rimiuuls. It's intent was to drive
ut of the traflio all decora who wore
ot financially responsible for any
orsonal damage which might re-
tilt from their connection with the
usinoss , and to provide suihiblo rum.

rominont evils , which all admitted
as the result of unbridled lico.iao.

'hile the Slpcumb law is in many ro-
ects defective , and has boon violated
this city and elsuwhoro , it affords
j fur preator protection from the

tion law of Kansas.
As between Kansas prohibition that

or the local authorities are disposed

In his annual tncggago to the ci
otincil Mayor Boyd recommoni

Another very important rccoi
mcndation is the reorganization
the paid lire department on a me
economic basis. Wo can safely IK
lay off ono 01 two fire engines , but'
ought to invest moro money in he

Living Express Freight.
The Adams Express company r
ccivtd a telegram yesterday mornii
from their ngonton the Pittaburg at
Fort Wayne train which left hero i
0 o'clock fho previous evening for tl
east , that a man had been found coi
coaled in n box in the express car an
hnd been handed over to the cilice
at Van Wert , Ind. lie gave his nan
as John McAuloy , of 171 West Moi
roe street. The box , which was pn
vidou V ith wire at the top and bo
torn to give ventilation , was labcllc
"Tho Last Rose of Summer , " at
the expressmen supposed it con taint
flowers , but when Mr. McAuley wi
( und snugly ensconced in it thi
fancied ( they had captured a robbc
Ho had with him a supply of prot
siena sufi'icicnt to last six days , or
fr , m the information gleaned , it w
concluded that the man had ndopti
this novel way of traveling to sa1
the difference between the pasaong
ami freight rates of faro , the latt
having been prepaid to Plnladolphii
It is understood that Mr. McAuloy
about sixty-five years of ago and
comfortable circumstances , but givi
to eccentricities which have often s
his family on their wits' ends. It
said that if ho hid succeeded in reac
ing the City of Brotherly Love in h
box lip intended to undertake a sim :
ar trip to Denver. It was lucky f
Mr. McAuloy that this attempt
reach the Atlantic seaboard as an c
press package was discovered in tl
day time , for if ho had been found
night the express messenger wou
have boon likely to have peppered hi
with a revolver. It is to bo rogrotti
that the agent , after satisfying hir
self that the man in < the -box u ;
harmless , did not allow himtoprocet
in his novel conveyance merely fortl
purpose of testing a man's powera <
endurance for two days and a nigl
for the purpose of evading the e :
ponso of a few paltry dollars , and i
order to give the sleepy Philadelph
papers a sensation. But the gentl
man's scheme was nipped in the bui
and the company may require him I
provo his object was not robbery.
Why Chandler Broke with Blalnn.
Concord letter to The Now Yor
Herald : Chandler has undergone
3hango of heart since the inauguratlo
of President Garfield. Though na
urally of stalwart composition , t
much so that ho always despised M
Hayes , and never , during the latter
occupancy of the White House , pe :
mitted an opportunity to pass withoi
uxprensing hid contempt for the mat
his milk and water policy and the h ]
pocrisy of his administration. H
early allied himself with the interest
} f Mr. Elaine , and was ono of h :
foremost advocates for a nominatio
to the presidency , having in conjum
; ion with Mr. Halo , the manaEomer.
) f the Maine statesman's interests the
: ho Joafc national republican convet
lion , and being a vigorous and out
ipokon opponent of the third ten
xmbitiona of Gen. Grant. The olectio
jf GarBeld and the onthronging c
Blaine as Secretary of State , place
[ /handler once moro in good ordc
, vith the administration and in friend
y relations with the departments , an
in opportunity was presented t
Blaine to reward his faithful sorvan
aid ally. Blaine proved true to hi
lature , deserted his .henchman at ,
iritical time , and this is the true Be
irot of the conversion of William E
Chandler from half-breedism to stal
vartiam. It was radical , prompt am
horough , and dates from the day u
lis rejection by the senate for the so
icitor generalship , to which ho hai
> eon nominated by Garfield at Blaino'
lolicitation ; but for which neitho
ronturod to support him when Me
Veagh and his friends opposed him
Chandler's course was taken in an in
it ant ; ho immediately , it is claimed
joined hands with Mr. Conkling , witl
rhom ho had long maintained inti
nato friendly relations , and was pre
> ared to make war on the adminlstra
ion , and especially to assist in pun
shing Elaine. Had Garfield hvol hi
idministration would have como ii
or the same share of ridicule and de
lunciation from Chandler that hi
lestowod upon that of the forme :
) hio president.
Ho very naturally takes to the pros
nt administration and will generally
ocoivo , the support of all Mr. Conk
ing's influence. It is generally un
orstood by his friends hero that hi
as irrevocably broken with Blaine
'ho is savagely denounced by then
3r his base ingratitude in deserting
'handler ' when ho needed help ant
'hen a word from Blaine and Garfield
tust Buraly have prevented the dis <
onor of a rejection for the office foi
hich they had named him. Chnnd-
r is a zetfloua stalwart now , and
lus places himself in line with the
rovailing sentiment of his party
are , at the same time rendering it
orally certain that Mr. Blaine will
it receive thu votes of Now Hamp-
tire in the next National Republican
Coughs and Colds are often ovor-

A Difference in Cranks ,
Gen. O'Brien ( whoso name belies
i politics ) opposed a joint ticket
members of the School Board in
naha , and made an electrifying
; ech saying "The Republican party
i boon baptized in blood , and
> uld not now surrender its princi-
s to the Democrats. " The GonoisJ
ist have been readirfg some of Gui-
u's campaign speeches of last year ,
ere isn't much difference | in the
ko up of cranks , anyhow.
