The Postville Weekly Review JPOaXVIlLB, SArDAY) DBO. 28. W. N .BTJ*DIOK,tlditor. BnUr*d at the I'oiloffltflPotttitUai THE CLOSE OP 1801. The la«t dayr of tlio old year nro drawing rapidly to a clone, nuil beforo WB groetour roadora again tho old year will have gono »nd tli« ntw year will hnvo been ushered in. A* wo look back over llio days tlint havo 10 swiftly sped we Mud niucli to bo thankful for, and on the wholo wo believe tho people bare been reasonably prosperous. Very seldom has the lnbor of the husbandmen brought forth better ret-.iras, mid labor of nil kinds has been profitably employed. Tho general health has been (rood except the visitation ol la grippe last winter. In the cominoruial world the volume of business has been very good although tho conditions of trade during the fall mouths have net boon altogether propitious on account of mild weather and bad roads, •till tho merchant* do not complain, although their business has tiot been quite up to their reasonable expectations, nnd nothing liko what it would havo been with more favorable weather and roads. The town lias made a substantial growth in the way of building. More money ha* been thus expended than in any one year for a long time. Tlio new brick block is a credit and ornament to the town, and the now residences of Walter Chriss, Messrs. Hoy and McNeil Harvey Hawkins and Wm. Mcljulllon will compare favorably with tho best that have been erected in any surround' ing towns of more pretentious. Various other improvements have been made in all parts of town of lesser magnitude, nnd on tho whole a healthy growth is apparent. The great uood for the coming year is more houses to accommodato those who want to coaio and dwoll with us but cannot for want of a place to lay their bonds. ITe never can be what wo should be until tho now comers can find lodgement. A dozen small but comfortablo homes should be orectod next season. Wo don't bolieve one of them would bj vacant a montk aftor completion. Many kinds of new business have beon established hore dtiling llio year, prominent among which avo the new bank, now printing offlco nnd new stoek firm and « uew lumber yard, all of which start in with groat oncourago- inent. Tho business changes that hare taken place during the year are mainly confined to tho hotels, livory stables and barber shops; Skelton & Tangnman. we bolieve, being tho only mercantile uhango in the dry goods line and thnl was arranged for before the opening of tho year. Thoro was a slight change in tho Crosby firm, tlio elder Crosby retiring, Jou Gray succeeded Kobort* & (Jrayjin tlio elothlng sioro, W. J. Hanks & Co. arccocdeil Gray & Co. in tho jewelry businoss and Anjr J. Klttss also retired from tho lira of Kluss Bros, in the harness business. Busiiicas now seems to be pretty well settled, and all tho ayenuos are pretty well filled. All that is neoded now is "a lung pull and » strong pull and a pull altogether," and Poslvillo will tnko n still further advauco in the competitive race of prosperity and rtuown. it is now the beat town of Us size in this part of the •tat* and its business domain is still widening. Whon tho roads are good you will find peoplo hero from ten to fifteen miles doing their trading because no surrounding town can touch us on assortments and prioos of goods Our lioliools are first-class nod the aim is to constantly improve them, our churches stand at the "head of the class" in this soctlon, society in the main i* goetl, and il is proverbial that whoover loaves l'oatrlllo is almost sure to regret tho stop And now, as wo stand upon tho threshold of a new year lot us rosolve to do ovon more for our town, Wore for our families and more lor the world in tho future than in tho past. These fleeting year* admonish' us that whatever we do wo must do quiokly "for the night comqlh wherein no man oan work." And when we lay the burden down it will be batter for our memory, if not better (or us, if wo have sown the seed* of kindness nnd good deeds all aloug the pathway wo have trod, making bright the waste plaoos aad glad the heart* of those whose Uvos we have touched nnd lifted up to a> higher and nobler plane There It no satisfaction In any ether life. There is a joy that paste* under standing in doing unto, other* as we would that tbey should do uuto us. In this spirit we exteucl the compliments Sotlt good friend we presumo sent ft copy of the REVIEW eontainiug our arliclo on a license law to thai great and" good prohibition editor, John Mahui, of tho Muscatine Journal, a «d in his issue of Doc. 1 lib he gives his entiro editorial page to the demolishment of the Postville REVIEW, sending us a marked copy of the paper containing the article. Had wo lime and seaco wo should lie pleased to give the argument of this great daily, that our readers might revol in tho erudition and legal lore of llio editor who had the honsr (?) of being beaten for railroad commissioner when the state was republican because lie was more of a prohibition!*', than n republican, as is tho case with a few other editors nearer liome. Ho starts out by wiso allusions to political economy and tho fallacy of local self government as applied to tho health and morals of tho stale, asserting that in this domain the stalo is supremo "whatever il decides to do in the exercise of this powor it can do without limitation by the general government or any other authority. What an illumination from the heights sublime! if tho peoplo had known this before election perhaps the state would not havo gono democratic'. And again: "Thus, then, we soe that in makiug a prohibitory law for ibo people of Poslvillo to oboy, the state does Dot consult (jrinnell or any other town, becauso il don't have to do so." Logic again worthy of n Chesterfield. Of course tho slate may make such a law as it chooses, but Ik* worst of it is tho people may rolir* the party making it to the shades of private life, just as thoy did our friend Mahin and tho rapubliean parly, on the prinelplo our friend continues was put in tho constitution, "all political powor is inhorentin tho people." Wo have only space for tho last paragraph: '•We havo only one thought more to elucidate, and tliat relates lo tho naive query of the REVIEW why Postville should not 'be allowed to try klgh license!' Just as though it had not beon 'tried' in overy civilized country on the giobo and found a failure everywhere and at all times as a temperanee measurel" Wo wish simply lo ask our o nidi to friend in what soctlon of what country on the face of the glob* prohibition ha* not proven at least as great a failuroP If it has net proven such a failure in Iowa why hns tho party which chain pioned il s*eadily doclincd unto its tinal fullP If it has not proven such a failure why is it a law in less than n half dozon of tho forty-four states of this union? In a recent interview J. S Clarkson, who ought lo bu pretty good authority, says there were more than 76,000 men who oven voted tho republican liokot in Iowa this year, who aro anti-prohibitionists. Our own opinion is that thoro wore many mote such men. Wo do not believe there aro 60,000 voters in the slate to-day who aro at heart prohibitionists. TRUE to its nature and to its gener- j ally acknowledged penchant for mi*- 1 representation and falsohood, the Wan- kon Standard attempts to mako it appear that tho REVIEW takes a position against the churches, because, in making an inventory of tho expenses that people have to bear in towns over and above those borno by the rural district*, w* included tho schools and churches as aggregating a considerable expense. Does tho Standard deny the proposition? Not at all. Did wo ever condemn churches ami school* becauso of the expense attached to their maintenance? The Standard well know* we ncvor hare. Can the Standard or anybody oUio point to a single instance whero tho editor of tho REVIEW was ever solicited for a contribution to any church that lie did not respond as liberally as his circumstances would admit? Havo not the column* of the REVIEW always been opon and free to all churchos for ail notices of whatsoever klndP While wo do not accopt the creeds wo have groat rospect for all churchos; and this respect is heightened by tho knowledge that they contain vory few members so hide bound, so phariMeicat nnd so beneath the respect of decent men as the editor of the Standard. Wo have never laid a straw ADDITIONAL LOCAL. tho way of Mr. May in our life, and avc nover pitched into him for any of boliefs, but it seems impossiblo for ra to let us alone. If it is any conso lalion to him to be etovnally misrepre renting and assailing us we hope he ill eontinuo to havo n good time. Uf course ho is mad because we don't placo prohibition abovo tho republican party, although be don't ralao linger to enforce tho law in hi* awn town, which, from all nceounts, is about tho worst cursed town in this respect, in this part of the state. It* marshal ha* just been tried in Uecurah for (hooting into a crowd of drunken rowdies on the streets of Waukon, and the jury acquittod him. If the editor of the Standard would do !CB* prohiWl Hon blowing in hi* paper and file moro informations, ho would be more consistent. But then consistency has beea expunged from his dictionary long ago. THE Independence Bulletin -Journal winds op it* editorial comments on our lalk upon a license law as follows: The REVIEW has always been stronuous opponent of the prohibitory law. Its prosenl plea fur low license and a liberal apportlonmon' of the saloons seciua to warrant the presump tion that its hostility lo prohieitios was based on something olsti than regard for true temperance. In this it doabt- •ess fairly represents a majority of tho auti-prohibition republicans." In tho first placo our ploa is not for low license. According to all obser valinu low licenso is anywhoro from $40 to 9300, even i* the largor cities, Dubuque thinks $150 about tho right sum, while we think in all cities it should be $1,000 and nothing leu than f 100 anywhere Now why do we favor as low ft license as $400 in small towns that vote licensor Simply fer two reasons. Firs on tho principlo of jnatiee and common seme. Business men cannot afford to pay the same rents and othor expenses in a small town that liioy could pay in Dubuque or any of the largo cities of the state. Such a proposition is pre posterous on the face of it. In the second place if thr liooai* i put up beyond reason in the small towns it will amount to prohibition and free whisky, the same as now. 11 town votes license under local option it is simply because iu that lowu prohibi tion ia not cuforood, and presumably oaunot be. Does anybody supposo that a liceua* of $1,000 could bo euforcoi ia Postville? We do not. We believe the dealers would all get together and agree not to take out license, but run rogaulloss of law, the same at now. If prohibition cannot be onforood here who woald there be to entorco suoh licenso law? Breu in the Interest of "true temperauoe" we believe it far bettor to have » law that oan bo enforced than one that oannot be. This has been the great failure of prohibition, it* non-enforcement. We want no substitute for it that would be open to the sane objection. Nobody supposes that any lioense —We received the program of the Hardin Christmas tree exorcises, with a request lo publish, on Friday afternoon, aftor the paper* were noariy all printed and the Hardin list made up.
