The western border is solid for Constitu
tional amendment, wi'h the exception of
Irie county. Our special commissioner
continued his researches through Crawford,
Mercer, Lawrence, Butler and Beaver
counties. They will each give majorities
of from 1,000 to 2,500 for prohibition. The
effect of the fall of the municipal classifica
tion act on the temperance agitation is
pointed out in one of the interviews.
FEOII OCE ErXCIAL COMMISSIONER.
Meadvilix, February 2L Pennsylva
nia's western border is fenced in by at least
six solid prohibition counties. The only
spot where the rails have been knocked
down is in Erie county, as explained in my
letter yesterday. But, as also stated then,
tome people hope to find temperance timber
plenty enough to rebuild the Erie section
of the fence in June. It may be a hard
task, however. At the other end, Greene
and Washington counties use a sort of
barbed-wire fencing, and appended is the
result of an examination of the post-holes
and pickets located in Crawford, Mercer,
Lawrence, Butler and Beaver counties.
In all that large extent of country from
Conneaut Lake down to the Ohio river, and
from Neshannock creek across to the sources
of the ConnbqueneEsing, the liquor interests
have not the ghost of a chance for winning
the June campaign. The aggregate of votes
for Constitutional amendment that will go
down lrom this region to the threshold of
Allegheny county will have much to do
.with toning down the opposite influence of
Pittsburg and Allegheny in the sum total
of "Western Pennsylvania's work. Yet
there is one danger for the temperance lead
ers in the territory described, viz:
A BIG TABU VOTE.
The bulk of the votes Prohibitionists are
relying upon are from the farmers, and as
they, with their farms practically adjoin
ing those of Ohio, are ambitious in their
harvesting, June 18 will find them almost
too busy to take half a day off to go to the
polls. I found this fear in every border
county not that it might lose the fight for
prohioition, but that unless organization
was thoroughly advanced so as to arouse
the farmers and get a full vote, the aggre
gate of majorities would not count for so
much as anticipated in swelling the total
vote of the State at large. However, move
ments are now on foot to that end in every
one of tbe counties.
"The amendment may find all over the
State a new source of friendship, according
to the opinion of ex-State Senator Homer J.
Humes, of Mead ville. The Senator is one
of the best-known Democrats in Pennsyl
vania. He said to me:
Many votes will be given the amendment, not
only here but all over the State, by liquor men
themselves as a result of the recentSuprenie
Court decision declaring the municipal act un
constitutional. Based upon legislation of that
class the Brooks law graded liquor licenses for
seven classes of cities. Now that the munici
pal act is no eood, the Wallace act, dividing
cities simply into three classes, remains in
force. Therefore, liquor dealers in all the
small cities, such as Meadville, Titusville and
Johnstown, will have to pay S50U for a license
instead of S1J0. The result is the poorer dealers
will have to go out of the business, leaving it
in the hands of capitalists. Those driven out
will deliberately vote for the abolition of all
licenses to get even for the good fortune of
CKATvroED ron rEoniBirios-.
In reply to a question about Crawford
county's intentions, Mr. Hume, said:
I believe Crawford county will give a majority
of 1.000. and possibly L500. for the amendment.
Meadville will be close, with chances in favor
o a temperance victory, Titusville will proba
bly vote against it, but the townships and
boroughs are strongly in favor of it The cam
paign for the amendment is being managed by
the Republicans, although a few Democrats are
put on the committees.
But it cannot be denied that the Demo
cratic voters here, as elsewhere, feel
that Matt Quay put this question through
the Legislature to get temperance votes
for the Republican party; that he
also got moner from the State Liquor League
to help elect Harrison, and led them to rest
contented that the Democratic party would
kill tbe amendment at the popular olection.
Now, many Demociats propose, not only to
fool Mr. Quay, bat to retaliate upon the liquor
ring which has continually played into the
hands of the Republicans when we added
planks to our platforms, jcar after jear,
against sumptuary legislation as a part of our
fundamental principles, and thus offered them
Joseph L. Shippcn, Esq., a- leading Re
publican attorney, and one of the leaders of
the amendment "movement here, explained
to me that a purely non-partisan organiza
tion had been formed, which held a county
convention, 6cnt delegates to Harrisburg,
and will canvass every nook and corner of
the county. He expects 1,500 majority for
the amendment in tne county, although pre
dicting that both Titusville and Meadville
will vote for license, and Meadville is the
seat of Allegheny College.
Meadville has about 12,000 population
and Titusville about 11,000. The county
adopted local option by 560 majority in
1873, when Meadville voted for it and Titus
ville against. The county has only 64 li
3IERCEB COUNTY SURE.
The recent experience of a prominent
Pittsburg druggist in shipping liquor to
Mercer is a fair example of the strong tem
perance sentiment prevailing in that county.
The number of licenses there have not ex
ceeded a dozen for two or three years now,
the late rulings of the courts having been
given in the telegraphic news of The Dis
patch. The largest towns in the county
are Mercer, Sharon, Greenville, Sharpsvillc
and West Middlesex.
Local option was adopted in Mercer
county by 943 majority, but since then the
prohibition sentiment throughout the county
has grown surprisingly, manifesting itself
in various ways. Only once, however, did
it waver, ana that was six or seven years
ago when two Legislative candidates
pledged to supi ort a prohibitory amend
ment were defeated. But that is no criterion,
for one of Mercer's present members in As
sembly, Hon. Henry Hall, was chairman of
the Republican caucus which decided to
fcubnvt the question to a popular vote this
summer. He and his colleagues are sup
porters of the measure. The estimates of
Mercer county people of their majority for
' the amendment range from 2,000 to 3,000.
LAWKEKCE COCSTV'S MITE.
Lawrence county Los enly about 8
licensed bars, and in 1873 voted for local
option by 1,577 majority. Probably basing
their guesses on this last fact2 and comput
ing a probable heavv gain in temperance
sentiment in 15 years, W. H. Falls, Esq.,
J. U. Emerv. F. J. Alford and others in
recentlv published interviews predicted the
adoption of the amendment in Lawrence
county iy from 2,500 to 3,000 majority.
C. H. Akens, Esq., Chairman of the
Democratic County Committee, however,
differs from this high estimate. "When I
met him in New Castle he said to me:
This county will vote for prohibition, but
with onlyl.000majority, or possibly 1,500, butno
more than that. In a total voto of about. 6500
it is asking too much to expect 3,000 majority
for the issue. Tbo sentiment in the county tor
prohibition is stronfr. especially in the northern
section, around felippcry Rock and jNortn.
Heaver townships. New Castle will probably
be close. There are many Swedes and Italians
w orking in the ore and lime quarries throughout
the county, but very few of them have a vote.
There is quite a large settlement of German
farmers in the neighborhood of Wurtemburg,
on the Connoquenessing, but while many of
them probably like their beer.it is a note
worthy lact that tho proprietor of the hotel
there stopped, of his own accoriseven or eight
years ago applving for license. It will all de
pend on how well the fanners votes are can
vassed in this campaign.
BUTLER'S PEOHIBITIOS' VOTE.
Bntler county will vote for the amend
ment without doubt, if politics are kept far
in the background, 'ihira party proniDi
tionists must lay low, Republican must
walk arm in arm with Democrat,and Green
backers should embrace all three at the
same time, in order to iaake the issue a suc
cess up among the soap mines. -
In other words, if license or no license is
voted on purely on the merits of theques
tion, no license will come off victori
ous. Ex-Sheriff Kelley, Alonzo Shiras
and Thomas Mechling told news
paper correspondents lately that they be
lieved the majority for prohibition in But
ler county -would run from 700 to 1,500. W.
C. Findley, Chairman of the Kepublican
CountyComm:ttee, fixed it as high as 2,500.
All admitted that as many Democrats as
Republicans are in favor of the issue, and
that it should be allowed to remain on non
partisan grounds in Butler.
The countv adopted local option in 1873
by 1,141 majority. The refusal of all liquor
licenses by the President Judge of the But
ler County Court a few years before the
enactmentof the Brooks law created consid
erable sensation at the time, but since then
public sentiment has always indorsed that
judicial rnling. A portion of Gucken
heimer & Co.'s big distillery at Freeport, or
rather one of their bonded warehouses,
stands on the Butler county side of Buffalo
TEOSrECTS IK BEAVEE.
The county in which National Chairman
Matt Quay, ex-Chief Justice" Daniel Agnew
and President Jacob Henrici. of the Econo
mies' Society, cast their votes, will be ar
rayed on the side of the Constitutional
amendment. "Whether all three of the dis
tinguished gentlemen named will aid in
making the array, is not known by the pub
lic. The ex-Chief Justice will vote for it
sure. He was one of the first Presidents of
the Constitutional Amendment Association
of Pennsylvania, and is now enthusiastic in
his work for the success of the campaign.
Much curiosity is shown in regard to which
side of the tally sheet the other two
votes will be marked upon. I am told that
Senator Quay signed a"W. C. T. U. petition
here a few months ago asking, the Legisla
lature to adopt the submission resolution,
but he has told no one yet how he will vote
in June. As to the votes of the Economv
Society, they are equally uncertain. Their
wines, ciders and beers are better known
than their ballots. The old men usually do
not take much interest in politics, only
casting a full vote at Presidcntal elections.
This campaign, however, may be regarded
by them as more important than political
Beaver county adopted local option in
1873 with 1,230 majority. The number of
her licensed bars in recent years has been
very limited, and with a strong prohibition
feeling in townships, boroughs and the town
of Beaver, which is a college town, the
county's majority for the amendment is
variously estimated at from l,000to 4,800.
Beaver Falls, being a manufacturing town,
will be closer than any other part of the
county. L. E. SlOFIEL.
