No one, not even as ardent a dry *w you, Mr. drandon, will Ri-gtre thu present, conditions are perfect. Tha they are, however, an Improvemen o%'er the good old days so longingly desired by the writer of the anonymous screed end his fellow dtec!- ples of Al Smith any unbiased observer must, and will, admit. Failing to prove h!,i point the writer turns to the time-worn subterfuge of trying to work np sympathy for his cause by baiting and abusing the editor of The Gazette. Bunk! The politicians have been working that trick ever since Martha Washington was a school girl. It's so sold that we of the O.OP. have long since abandoned it for mom lucrative methods. Admitting that The Gazette Is not always right politically for the simple reason that Its editor Is human, it Is generally right because the public Is seldom fooled en masse and It Is the job of The Gazette to cater to the public. "Observer" his argument and gloatingly holds up to the public the shivering skeleton of The Gazette by sagely hotriine that you, Mr. Grandon, are operating your paper for iroflt. Betrayed) What a wonder- 'ul brain Observer must possess to make such a statement Heretofore everybody was of the opinion that you were printing your paper lor pleasure. Oh cruel, cruel world! •Observer" states generalities. Surely there must be some facts, jet's dig some of them up and sec f "Observer" and his fellow Jeffer- sonlans have the nerve to answer them. If I am not mistaken, J. w. McDonald wa mayor of Sterling root about ISM to 1913. John Hague* was his chief of police and Judge C. E. Sheldon was Us city ittorney. Several of our democrat- c brethren were membera of tha city council. There were seventeen -arhrn Mayor McDonald want t,h*> I also ho'<d that.

Total, twenty persons of which at least fourteen were women who lived by paid prostitution. Can "Observer" Bhow such a record at present without the saloons? If so. let's have the name, locations and number of Inmates. Why keep everything to yourself? I hold that Lottie Houston operated one of the aforementioned placet!. Prior to that she had operated in the old Charter house on the site of the Wyne-I>avcr store She was arrested and tried before Judge Mitchell, I believe. During the trial "Papa" Houston became indignant because one of the witnesses cast reflections on the morality of his Rlfe;4w> took R swing at the witnesses and was fined fifty dollars for contempt of court. You nee. "Mama" Houston was supposed to be virtuous in Fpit.e of the life she led. A5 T r'cmc'hiber If, "Mayor McDonald had one of the cleanest administrations Sterling 1ms ever had He refused to tolerate vice and fur- .hermorc he made the saloons trot the straight and narrow path. I hold that there was more want ind suffering among women and children in any one winter during ,hc days of the saloons than there las been in all of the past ten win- era put together; I further hold hat in nearly every case it was ound that drink on the part of the lusband and father was the cause. The good women or'the Sterling Voman's Club through their philanthropic committee relieved a arge number of these cases; I am ertaln that the then chairman of the philanthropic committee will icar me out In my statements.
