Edgar Howard Gives an Interesting
llewrlptlon of His Personal
Observations of Prohibi
A letter from Edgar Howard, who is vis
iting In Oklahoma, and published in ins
Columbus TelegTam, throw some Interest
ing light on the prohibition ltutlon In that
atate. By way of Introduction, Judge How
ard declare he has always been opposed to
state prohibition, and yet believes his pic
ture of prohibition In Oklahoma I quite
free) from prejudice. His story Is as fol
lows: - .
'I propounded to thirty persons met at
random the following question: 'Do you
believe prohibition has come to stay In this
state?" -1 was surprised by the unanimity
of the replies to that question. The men
to whom the question wa propounded rep
resented every calling and clasa In cltlien-
shlp bankers, preachers, merchants, rail
road men, hackdrlvera, hotel men, farmers
and ex-saloon keepers. Twenty-four of the
thirty men declared their belief that Ok
lahoma waa a prohibition atate, and would
always' remain so. Six out of the thirty
expressed the belief that within a few
years public sentiment would turn against
prohibition. These six were members of a
Strong and growing society known a the
Sons of Washington.' Thl society Is about
on the lines of the Personal Liberty
leagues In Nebraska, and .Its members are
banded together for one single purpose, and
that the overthrow, of All sumptusry laws.
In discussing the. Tuture of prohibition
In Oklahoma one must not forget the fact
that the enabling act which brought Okla
homa Into the elsterhood of states con-
telred a clause for a prohibition period
of twenty-one year? after the state should
be admitted. Some lawyers lnlt that
under that enabling act there Is no possi
ble way of killing prohibition during the
tw nty-one-year pcrlcd. Other good law
yers believe the sovereign power of the
state can be exerted to change the condi
tions at the pleasure of a majority of the
people. I shall leave that problem to the
lawyers and turn my efforts to a study
of the effects of prohibition as I find thm
"Does prohibition prohibit in Oklahoma?
Yes, and no. The situation is such aa to
make Impossible the procuring of a drink
of liquor by a stranger unless he procure
it through the ministrations of some
friend who lives here. In such cases it is
caty. I visited several drug stores and
tried to get a drink of whisky. I pleaded
thirst, and even sickness, but every drug
gist was pitiless, seemingly with no heart
of sympathy for a sick man. Then I tried
It In company with a gentleman who live
nere ana wno knows the rope, it was
easy. And yet I warn every Nebraska
frtond against sampling prohibition whisky
In Oklahoma. I do not believe It is whisky
at all. It tastes not. nor smells like tha
real thing. It smells like drugs, and tastes
1'ke llmberger smells. The druggist served
It to us in a glass with phosphates.
tasted the stuff and balked. My lawyer
mend pleaded with the druggist to give
us something straight. At first, the man
said that would be Impossible as long a
there were any customer In the store,
Finally all the other 'customers went cut
and then the man brought us the straight
goods. I was sorry he brought It. It wa
worse than the mixture. I am sure that
If the druggist had been arrested and
had been called to testify against him lie
could not have been convicted by my evi
dence. It was not possible for mo to swear
that I had drank whisky. In fact, I do
not believe It was whisky, but only a vile
mixture of drugs with which to deceive
the fools who, sneak into a drug store for
something which a gentleman ought to take
only in a licensed saloon or In his own
I visited the sheriffs office and
talked with that official regarding the
enforcement of tlue prohibitory law. The
herlff was an honest man, and he be
lleves It Is his duty to arrest every man
who defies any of the laws. He pursues
bootleggers with splendid seal. And he
finds plenty of opportunity to display
hi seal. I wa told that there were no
lea than fifty professional bootleggers
In Enid. I wa talking with Fred Me
In, a merchant tailor. While we wero
talking ha pointed me to three men who
passed his door and said that each of tha
three wa a bootlegger. They were
bootleggers In the sense literal. Each
carried his bottle of liquor In hid hip
pocket. When they met a regular cu
tomer they conducted him to a secluded
pot, gave him a snort out of the bottle
and collected II cents. If the customer
took two anort It cost him 25 cents.
I examined the court record in an
effort to discover the difference between
the number of criminal cases filed during
given period under license and a like
period under prohibition. There waa not
much difference In the record under the
dry and the wet regimes. I asked the
sheriff about Jail conditions before and
alnce the adoption of prohibition. He
aald there waa not much change. Thla
county la about the siie of our own
Piatt county, but the Jail la three tlmea
aa large aa our Jail, and the sheriff cares
for ten prisoner where our Sheriff Car-
rig caret for on. I aaked the sheriff
If prohibition had Increased or dimin
ished hi guest Hat, and he aald it waa
about a atand-off. Then I aaked htm the
political complexion of tha county. He
told ma It was brutally republican, and
largely by aid of the nigger vote, and
than I understood tha altuatlon bettar.
"The only profit derived from atate
prohibition Is that which accrues to the
bootleggers, tha druggists, the Kanaaa
City wholesalers and the express corn-
pan tea. I wa told by thoce In position
to know that not leas than on carload
of expreaa packagea la received flere
every week from the Kanaas City whole
sale houaea, and proportional ahlpments
go from that city to other Oklahoma
towna. . I heard an agent for a wholesale
house say that the whisky trad of two
prohibition states Kansaa and Okla
homa wai worth thla year to the' whole
aal dealera of Kansaa City a profit of
11.000.000. If we of Nebraska ahould
adopt prohibition the interior towns of
Nebraska would be pouring a proportion
ate golden stream Into tha wholesale
houses of Council Bluffs and Sioux City.
Ia It better to live under high license
and keep the booxe money at home, or
to adopt atate prohibition and give the
money to the expreaa companies and to
wholesale dealers In aoma other atate?
You can get all kind of answers to
that queatlon here In Oklahoma, but one
problem appear to b definitely settled
here, according to tha view of Iba vaat
majority, and that Is that prohibition,
ba It good or bad, baa com to Oklahoma
to atay. Tha general argument In sup
port of prohibition la that It lessens
crime, lessens the coat of criminal courts
and Jail and that It Improves tha moral
atmosphere, and Oklahoma will have to
overthrow that argument before Okla
homa ran overthrow prohibition."

FR. WILLIAMS STAYS IN OMAHA
Rector of St. Phllp Itbe Deacon
Rejects Offer of Chnrrh In
Rev. John Albert Williams, rector of the
colored Episcopal church. St. Philip the
Deacon, In Omaha, has been offered the
pastorate of a large Boston church, but
has refused it, believing his work lies in
the west. Father Williams Is now in
Boston conducting a mission, but he writes
home that he has no thought of accepting
the proffered pastorate of the eastern con
gregation. He is expected home the latter
part of this week. The mission which he
has been conducting In Boston wa the
first Episcopal conclave of the kind ever
held among the colored people of that city.
Of the Omaha clergyman and his work
and the offer of the eastern church the
Boston Globe says:
Father Wlll'ams is ra'-d as one of the
best educated, loga y".-d eloquent of
colored priests In tliu American Episcopal
church. He was born in London, Canada,
forty-two years ago. He was graduated
from the Beabury divinity school at Fari
bault, Minn., and waa-ordained into the
r.rleMhood at Omaha.. For a number of
years he was stationed at Detroit, and so
successful was he id-his work there that
he was sent to Omaha to the church of
St. Philip the Deacon. He is now assistant
secretary of the diocese of Nebraska.
Father Charles N. FieVl, superior of the
Society of St. John the Evangelist, which
has charge of the Church of SB. Augustine
and Martin, heard quite a while ago about
Hie work of the young priest and sought
at the earliest moment to have him come
to Boston to preside over the new church.
The way fortunately opened for his coming
as a mlssioner at the dedication of the new
church, and while Father Williams has not
consented to take charge of the church
at the conclusion cf his mission work
Father Field Is strongly in hopes that he
will make up his mind to stay. Father
Williams, by his modest bearing, eloquence
and logic, haa made friends of a large num
ber of the 400 cc romuntoants of the church.

COLE SEES INDIANS PLAY
Coach Thinks Nebraska Has Oood
Chance to Defeat Carlisle.
PRACTICE FOR WABASH GAME
Showing Cravrfordsvllle Team nut
In Game yrlth DePssw
Friday C'anaea Some
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN. Nov. S2.-(Speclal.)-Coach
"King" Cole if turned from Minneapolis
this morning, whero lie witnessed the Carlisle-Minnesota
game on Northrup field
yecterday. He believes Nebraska will stand
a good chance of beating tho Indians when
they come to Lincoln next week.
'Minnesota played a brilliant game, ex
plained the Nebraska coach at the training
table this afternoon. "For the first tlma
since the new rules were adopted three
years ago the Gophers used the open stjl!
of game wtih good effect. UTero rwara
pass wa worked often by the Gophers and
always for good gains. The bock field or
the Gophers was In fine form and hit the
Indian line hard. hTe Carlisle ends were
kept busy stopping the fast Minnesota half
'The Indians, of couise, were badly
handicapped on account of having several
crippled players. Baltnti and Captain
Warteka were not in the game and several
of the other playera were not able to enter
the contest. The Indians played gamely,
but the new men who went into the game
were not able to do the work that the
veterans ccu'.d have done.
"By the time the Indi. is get hero next
week they will probably be In good condl.
tlon for a hard game. At St. Louts, Thanks
giving day, they will have no trouble In
winning, and I think that a bunch of sub
stitutes will be able to take care of the
Mound City warrior for them. Thl will
give them a good chance to get their cap
tain and other regular Into condition for
"Balenti, who has done such wonderful
place kicking for them this season, will
be In shape, and Nebraska will have to
play great ball in order to keep him from
making one or two field goals."
Practice for Wabash Game.
Coach Cole announced that practice for
the Wabash game would start tomorrow at
2:30 o'clock. There are only three day In
which to prcpre for the Little Glanta and
"King" Cole intend to work his men every
minute that he possibly can. So the prac
tice will start at 2:30 In the afternoon and
continue until darkness acta In.
Since the showing Wabash made against
De Pauw Friday, Nebraska has lost a
great deal of the confidence it had about
winning th game Thanksgiving. The Lit
tle Glanta defeated De Pauw 13 to. 0 In a
hard fought game. De Pauw outweighed
Wabash Just about as Nebraska will, and.
according to dope, ought to have won. The
Wabash player, however, used the for
ward pass and other open style play with
uch good effect that they won easily.
They played a wonderfuj game on the de
fense and several tlmea when their goal
w threatened held back the heavy De
Pauw players. .
Coach Cola fears that unless hi
"peek-a-boo" and other open work play
work successful that the Crawfordvllle
men will ba able to repeat the trl?k per
formed against Depauw. So thla week
practically all of hi practice time will
be confined to coaching his pupil to
use th open plays with success.
He says he has two new formi of the
forward pass wlijch will be given to the
Cornhuskers this week. He believes that
with Beltzer passing th ball theje new
play can be worked. Beltzer Is In good
form now and ought to ba able to do
some brilliant work against a light team
