TtaPosttllle Weekly Rwiew frOBTVILLE, BATVAY, 31. •W. N.BTJBDIClK.Bditor. Mnttrtd atthc Poitoffit* at PottvilhSft WE.VTANT TO KNOW, =4 Thoro nro a grout many tilings in this world that w« don't kuow nnd novel' ilinll know whiio in this valo of tsars. Ono of thoso thingi is litis: Why should Anybody in Iowa now oppose a locnl option license laiv* Do you answer boeauso you still favor prohibition P But why do you favor prohibition ? Do you not know that only wliero it can he onforcod l.« it possibla to hayo prohibition anjvray? Wo have prohibition now in I'ostville as much as anywhere in Ilia slato and our supposed ton open saloons ire n constant reminder that thero is no prohibition hero, nnd is not likely to be. If iu Fayette, Osage n few othor towns nnd cities of the state thoro »ro no saloons, there would bo none there, under local option; mid so none of those toirns would bo injured, nnd nil would bet law abiding citizens. We nro ono of Ibo last men in tho world who would favor (ho forcing of a saloon into a •onimiin- ity where Uio majority of tho people do not want it, nud hence wo have always favoiud locnl option, lilting oaeli com- inun'uy deeido that matter for itaolf. ttut porhnps some ono urges that lluro would ho a warfiiro every two years in tho hope of voting the saloon into towns from which it had liton excluded. Supposing theio is. Don't we have a warfare every two yours to decide who shall bo governor nnd who shall go to tho legislature? Is not this lifo made up of a warfare in polities, religion and even for 'the bread that perishes?" If a question thai w»s settled once waa seitWd for all time there wouhl bo no possibles use for tho multiplicity of oleelious that wo havo in a republic, and a monarchy would bo just tho thing. TIIIB is not tho theory of an onliglitonod republic, either iu tlio world of thought or of business. The farmer don't use the harvester thai ho usoil ten years ago. lie may not us« tho plow that lie used a year ago. liy the breaking up of church creeds within tho past year lis mav not hold tho sumo religious viows thai ho bold a year ago. Certainly it i» evid.'iit thai many thousands of voters in this state did not voto this year as they did a fosv years ago. A year ago tho republicans had a majority in tho United States house of representatives. Now there is an ovonvholmiug majority of that body democratic. But in every ono of these instances tlio individual voted or acted his preference, and who shall "say him nay?" If prohibition don't work satisfactorily ill a town it will try license for two yoara. and if that is more of a failure it will go back to prohibition as soon as it IUH a chance. In tho mean time force being lakon out of the qucsi'u-'.i morals will como in with a ten fold power. You nevor roado a man real good morally by standing over him with a club or a drawn sword. Bu*. when you go to him kindly and plead with him, for tho lake of his family, socloty and himself you have a lever that will move the world. But another "good christian friend says tkat it will not do to license an evil. That depends upon tho conditions and circumstances.O if an oyil exists, so wldosprond that the law aud tho church are Impotent to oradicato it, nnd so popular that not a man in tho • community daro do a thing to suppress it, is it not tho part of good sense to control it in mini manner? If by liconso one-half of tho evils can bo got rid of, by{ closing half of„lho places whoro it is sold, and by making restrictions thai will cut oft'the drunkard and tho uiluor, has not] something boon gained for reformP The man who disputes this would maintain that half a ]onf of bread is no better than no bread at all to a hungry man. Tho world cannot bo transformed from pandemonium to tho mlllonium in n day, a century or a thousand years: The man who scouts anything but prohibition in dealing wilh this question stiillliios tho history of tho ages and of all reforms that havo over biossod the world. Thoro is nothing worth having bnt takos A long time to attain. God did not soo .fit to uanlsU evil from tho garden, and Christ had no hope of doing it only through tho slow prooesV inherent in roan. Nearly nineteen hundred years havo elapsed slneo lie onme, and still man'* heart is ft* prone tb'ovll as tho sparks aro to fly upward. Legislation cannot spread tho gospel or forward any moral reform. Tho inquisition could torture and kill tno body but it novor made a slnoero convert. About the only thing prohibition lias nopom pllshed in Iowa has been to dethrone and almost fatally slab tho republican party. Tho party has but one more ohftiioo for Its life, and that le to this 1 winter frame and pase, by tho assistance of tho democrats, a judicious and stringent license lavr. If it don't, do this now tho epitaph of tho party in this statu might just as woll be .written, for it will pass out of tho history of tho. state except as a memory. There nro fifty straight republicans in Post township, who volwd tho tiokot this your without a sarulch, who villi nevsv again vote a state tiokot on a prohibition platform. Tlioy are not, and peynv, h»yo v been prohibitionists, hut simply republicans. On national issnoi Uioy will ,: ,i -Tote with their, party.- but tboy ..will no ; longer give «ld and oymforl to tho ^:#(5ratiki whoi/liav* rulneol limit party c9'd';-.MMompllih«d no good. It I* too ' l*He now to talk about resubmission m . asking I lie ropubligan. house to stand ir • Arm" for , prohibition, Wat U»ue Js Let all understand that from henceforth Iowa is not a prohibition state, and ho is no friond to tho rcpuVlicnn party who would longor advlso carrying tlio dond issue. IT will bo but a few weeks until tb(? legislature moots and then wc shall see what tho democrats propose to do about it. They aro in a position now where they must show thoir hand In an unconcealed manner on nil legislation. It will not do for them to spring legislation that they do not nt honrt favor, knowing that thu republicans will defeat it. They must mako mi honest showing, not only on tho "conspicuous iisun" but on transportation and all other questions that arise. It is vory evident that by sonio understanding tho railroadR went to the support of thu democrats, nnd they don't do this eithor for fun or for principle, because with theso corporations thoro is no such word ns principle disassociated from selfishness. If tho domncrats have pledged legislation favoring them there will be fun at Des Moines beforo spring. The people are anxiously waiting the . denouements of tho next few mouths. IT beats all how many advertising dodges thoro aro in the country. Wc oxpect tho fakirs to try to work thoir schemes when they can. but wa do not look for the newspapers to holp them In the nefarious work. But hero wo linye I lit* Burlington Hawkoyu requesting us to give about n half column write up of a now institution for the cure of drunkenness, witli the explanation that "it is not an advertisement." Tho fact is it is the very best kind of an advertisement. Tho further' fact is that there is no business in the world that can so wull afford to advertise in every paper in tho statu and country as thin. So far as the REVIEW is con corned its columns aro open for legiti- matu advertising at regular rates. If wo havo any fnyors to bestow gratuitously wo propose to give them to the ImsineM meu of our own town. Tho llawkeyo can do the same^if it chooses. ADDITIONAL LOCAL. •—'the theory that fietica doaling exclusively witli refined nud poetical love ia best written by women will bo proved true if other women can write such ardvnt and tropical rapbsodius as Mrs. Amelia K. Bnrr's latest work '•Love for an Hour is Loye Forever.' it may, however, bo justly doubt whether any other woman can produce so CMpiisitively tender, so warm and so charming a love story ns this, Mis Barr's favorite nnd masterpiece. Till much of the theory is eorlainly true that no male author can compete with Mrs. Ban- in tlio portrayal of idyllic love. "Lovo for an Hour is Love For over" will begin in tho Now Yor!

That grent American periodical, the Century, Is going to outdo it« own unrivaled rocornVin its progrnnimu for 1892, and as many of its new features begin with tho Kovombnr number, now renders should commonoo witli that issue. In this number are the opening chapters of "The Naiilahka." a novel by ltiidynrd Kipling, tho famous author of Plain Tales From the Hills," written in collaboration with an American writer, Wolcott Bnloslier. It is the elory of a young man and a young woman from n "booming" Colorado town, who go to India, ho in search of a wonderful jeweled necklace, called '•the Nnu- lalika" (from which tlio story takes its name), nnd sho as a physician to women. The noyel doseribus their romark- ablo adventuros at the court of an Indian mnliarajah. Besides this, the Century will print threu othei IIOV«IR during tho year, and a great number of short slorios by the best Ainorienu story-writers. The woll-known humorist Edgnr W. Nye ("Bill Nyo") is to write a seiios of nmusing sketuhos which hu falls bis "nti'biogrnphior," the lirst onoof which, "The Autobiography of n Jnstioe of thu Peace,"^is iu November. This numiier also contains a valuable and suggestive nrticlo on "Tho Food-Supply of ihc Future," which evoly farmer should read, to bo followed by a number of others of great practical value to farm ers, Iroaliug especially of the relations of t'.io government to the farmer, whnt it is doing nnd what it should do. This series will include contributions from ollleera of tho department of agriculture, and other well-known men will discuss "Tho Farmer's UiscontODt," "Corporation," etc., etc. A uuldliraled Spanish writer is to furnish a "Life of Columbus," which will be brilliantly illustrated, and tlio publishers of tho Century have arranged with the raanngors of tho World's Fair to print irtielcs on the buildings, eto. Ono of the i ovols to nppoar in 1893 is "A Story of New York Life," by tho author of -'Tho Anglomaniacs." and tho magazine will ooutaln a great deal about tho metropolis during tho yoSr, --among other things a sories of'illns- Iratod articles on "Tho Jews in Now York."

A Olo*ti:il Vlow of IMncIn? unci Cuino of "Hkliirtlng Mutchm*." yuan Iltdug-fu, who recently recorded in Temple Bar his Impressions of Kugluml from a Colonial standpoint, wiV3 a good iV.'.ivl pwi/.iovl by what ho evidently as our frco- und-caay methods of courtship: "Beaido-i invitations to dinner," ho writes, ••there nro invitations to tea parties, such us aro occasionally glvon by wealthy moichants or distuingished otlle'als. When tho time como3 nn oquul nutnhor (if men nnd women a;i- somblo and tya. Htigivr, inilk, bread and the lileo nro set out an aids to conversation. Mora particularly nro thoro invitations to rkip find posture whon the host declOos \vhnt man is to bo tho partnor of what woman, aud whnt woman ot what m-.m. "Then, with both arms grasping each othor they leave tho tubUs In pivlvB, nnd leap, skip, posture and pranco for their mutual gratification. A man and a woman previously unknown to ono another may take part in it. They call this skipping lunxhtn (dancing)." Tho reason !o;' this curious proeooiling on the part of our countrymou was well explained by a recont wrilor in u Cbineso illustrated papor, the IIwu Puo. •'Wo3toru etlquolte requires," lio says, "tho man in toarch of a wifo to wrlto to tho girl's homo and agroo upon somo time un:l placo for o skipping match" (:-CI7IVW, ti dunco). "Tho day arrived, 'youth in red and maid iu greon,' they como in p.-.irs to the brilliant, spacious hull, whero, to tho emulous sound of fluto and drum, tho youth clasping tho maiden's waist and the maid resting upon her partner's shoulder, one pair will skip forward, nnothur pranco backward, round and round tho room until they aro forced to stop for want of breath. "Aftor thl.i they will bocomo acquainted"—only aftor this, observe— "and then, by occasional attentions over a bottle of wine or oxohanjjo of confidences at tho tea table, thoir intimacy will doopen, tho maldon'u honrt becomo filled with lovo and thoy will mate."
