We have heard iis case put in its strongest possible light, ,nd are now ready to judge for ourselves whether the "foundations" of the right- ous "have been destroyed." No one will deny that Governor Boies showed limself a skilful lawyer, nnd a strong leader for a bad cause in his speech in ur city last week. With his appearance >f candor, with the prestige of the high )fflce he holds in the state, and with the money of the immense organized liquor ligarchy at his back, the governor is the nost dangerous man in the state at this ritical hour. The governor set out with the position hat the republican party promised some fears ago that if prohibition was given a air trial, and proved a failure, the party vould seek another method of dealing with the question. Then lie asked blandly, "has it been a success?" Did he upposc that any man in the city, or state 'or that matter, could forget that the vhole democratic party, and the whole iquor combination of capital,and latterly he whole pardoning power of the governor of the state, has been actively employed to nullify the law? What other aw on the statute books could be more successfully enforced if similarly opposed? The law has not had a fair trial, and everybody knows that, yet the governor's speech assumed from the first to the last, this false premise. Every position taken in the whole speech is vitiated by this fallacy. No one will doubt that the governor was shrewd enough to know that he was arguing from a false premise. The only other alternative is that notwithstanding the saintly look of his face, ne was insincere, and cannot be trusted. After describing the case of Dubuque, and a number of other cities of Iowa, stating the number of saloons to be found in each, like a man that knew what he was talking about, lie made one of his usual breaks by saying that these cities are iu open rebellion against the law of the state. "Open rebellion" were his words. How will the cities that he pro fesses to befriend enjoy this fresh slander? How should a governor deal with open rebellion anyway? Should he go about and defend it? He expressed the opinion that ex-Governor Larrabee was as innocent as a bnbe for the state of things at Dubuque. Such an opinion is of some value coming from the ex-governor's enemies. But in view of the pardons that have nullified the law so effectually under the present administration, and in view of the unsuccessful efforts the present incumbent is making over the whole state to defend the "rebellion" be is decidedly off in claiming the same child-like iunoceucy. "But why is there such a state of things in Dubuque," asks the governor. Hear his answer. Digest it. "Why do they not obey the law at Dubuque? It is because a large part of the population of Dubuque were educated in foreign lands. M<;i>YAUI>. (i. say don't you hear them bells'.' Gus Krreiigrcn went down to Algona Tui. sdny. ,1. F.

Hurrah for Wheeler. Mrs. Jackson while out driving last Tuesday the horse became frightened, ran away and threw her out, bruising her up quite bad, but no serious damage was done. MO HE DEMOCRATIC LIE:-). l*'rwti tilt' State Jie^i.stei- of Oct. ";i. DujiU(;uK, Oct. :. ) -3.—Special to the State. Register.—The Chicago Herald published today a lying statement to the effect that Senator Allison has given up the light in this state and had withdrawn from the contest. As Senator Allison in not at home, his friends here laugh at the statement. The senator speaks at Algona tonight, at Eldora tomorrow, aud he will speak somewhere nearly every night up to election. He is coniidcnt of the election of the republican ticket by a big majority. Mil. SWENEY ALSO JJKXIKS IT. WEST LIIJEHTV, Oct. 22.—Special to the State Register.—Ex-Cougressmau J. II. Sweney had his attention called to the alleged interview at Cedar Rapids given in his morning's Chicago Herald. He denies in toto the statements as credited to him aud strongly asserts his firm con victions that the republican ticket >vill he victorious. They have, been taught- to use beer and wine at iheir table, in their parlors, and in their gardens. They use it in the social saloon, and they use it, innocently, too." Let every moral man in the county mark that. Governor Boies gives it as his opinion that the use of liquors z'» the social saloon is INNOCENT. Ho goes on to say, "you cannot convince them they are guilty of a moral wrong, any more than you can be convinced that you are .doing wrong in drinking coffee or tea or milk," Now note a few points: The people of Dubuque are in rebellion because n large part of the population was educated in foreign lands. They are in rebellion then under the impulse of an education, in foreign, that is to say u*-American, cus toms. Tiie rebellion in Dubuque is a rebellion of un-Americani/ed foreign ideas against American law and custom, according to the governor's showing. If the people of Dubuque do not want their city slandered they would do well not to let the governor get so far away. He has blundered again in an attempt to win the support of the naturali/.ed citizen. The naturalized cili/.en will not feel flattered by being called a rebel. They will resent the insult at the ballot box. Governor Boies studiously forgets that the law does not attempt to interfere with a man's private right to drink what he ijleases. and where and when he pleases, 'jut objects to, and prohibits the business of making drunkards. If a man does not become offensively drunk, no law of Iowa will disturb him in drinking what he will. But Governor Boies argued against the lav/thai it interferes with n man's private right to drink. In the eye of the law the traffic in intoxicating liquors, not the drinking of them, is the crime. If the state has the right to be obeyed when it. prohibits the sale of any injurious commodity whatever, it has the right to be obeyed when it prohibits the sale of an article that confessedly destroys more men, and desolates more homes, than "war, famine and pestilence combined." Now the governor says you cannot edu cate these people of Dubuque. They hjive been educated iu "foreign lauds." You cannot convince them that they are guilty of a moral wrong. What a complimentary idea of their intelligence the governor must have! We are willing that he should have u monopoly of one thing at least, that is, his estimate of the intelligence of the naturalized citizens of Dubuque. We believe they have learned some things since they came to America that have done them, no harm, and that they are fully competent to grasp lb ( - advantages to be derl'ed from a paper treatment of the saloon. Distinctively American ideas on the place of the liquor traffic ate not beyond their intelligence, the governor to the contrary notwithstanding. The Governor next insists that "you cannot educate these people by criminal laws. Criminal laws are the worst possible way of educating people." The governor ought to have been at the foot of Mount Sinai when Moses came down with the tables in his hands. He would have said doubtless to Moses: "Moses what a fool you are, don't you know that you can't educate these people by criminal law? Your God made ft mistake in at least half of what he made you curry down the mountain. Any way don't you see that prohibition of idolatry is a failure? Don't you see Moses what a pile of gold Aaron has got in by licensing it? You can't educate these people, Moses- least of all by criminal law." The governor evidentlj r came into the world too late. Will the governor please to inform the men who were "educated in foreign lands" how they nre to know what is criminal in the mind of the majority of the people unless it is put into the criminal law of the state? The governor next became greatly exercised over the idea of a state constabulary, that some people seem to favor. He became warm over the idea that people who are in "open rebellion" should be punished, or even arrested, and brought before a properly constituted judicial tribunal, without n warrant drawn up after the present method. "We cannot consent," cried he at the climax of his defense of the saloon keeper, "to abandon our right to n trial by jury. We want no Czar here." Let the governor's fears bo banished. Extraordinary measures are necessary to quell "rebellion." But we have quelled one rebellion without enthroning a Czar, or losing our right to trial by jury, and, though we hope the same method will never have to be repeated, we are able to do it again. The governor then presented the plan he favors for dealing with the saloon. It was, in brief, a local option law similar to that proposed in the democratic platform two years ago. He openly advocated license for the cities that do not wish the state law of prohibition. He advocated nailing up the white flag of sur render on the part of the STATE, before the rebellious cities tho large part of whose population are in rebellion "because they have been educated in foreign lands." One of the strongest points the governor made for license was that by that method wo could control the personel of the traffic and "decide whether the best or the worst men should engage in the business of selling liquors." Who Imagines that the best men could be induced to become saloon keepers. The man who has the temerity to suggest it, is bold enough to try to give respectability to any absurdity whatever that may suit him. Not, one word did the governor offer to prove that local option, or license, have anywhere. 1 proved successful in controlling the rum business. The method he suggests has bee'n tried repeatedly. It has not had the opposition of the liquor combinations as prohibition has. It has not had the opposition of party and press that prohibition has. Its success in controlling the liquor business ought to be so great, as to make it the great argument against prohibition. But the facts are so stubborn that the success of the democratic plan in other places cannot be used as an argument. Even the brewers and distillers say over their own signature, that high license is the method of dealing with the traffic that suits the traffic best. Over the largest part of the state the present law is fairly well enforced, in spite of opposition that no other law on the statute books has to encounter. We are not ready to exchange it for a law that is less efiective even where it is '/net li/ ft car f.elj/ any opposition at all. It is said that this is u moral question. Almost eveery church in the state has spoken out decidedly upon it. Almost every pulpit in the state is praying for Burt Republican. B. Editor.
