Freight End of the Ine Lebanon Solid
Against Trohlbltlon Ferrr County on
the Other Side of the Fence.
It is not at all sore which way Dauphin
county trill vote in the June election.
That very fact is taken by Prohibitionists as
a sort of a victory, because Danphin has
heretofore been pronounced in her opposi
tion to anti-liquor laws. More informa
tion has been given our Special Commis
sioner abont the effect the adoption of the
amendment would have on railroad freight
business. Lebanon county will vote against
the amendment, and Perry county will give
a majority for it.
rrEOM ora srtciAi, comkisstoxxb.)
Haeeisbueg, February 26. "Law
makers shouldna be law-breakers." That
they are, though, is a popular belief, and
because this is the State capital many peo
ple imagine it to be a wicked city. Possi
bly for that reason does the impression pre
vail generally throughout the State that
Dauphin county will vote against Constitu
tional amendment in June. And in my
travels I have met those, better acquainted
with the county, who entertain the same
notion, because, as they told me, outside of
Harrisburg, the rural districts are princi
pally populated by Pennsylvania Dutch.
Beside all that, Dauphin's record was such
as to not encourage hope within the prohi
bition heart. The county voted against
prohibition legislation in 1854 by 972 ma
jority, and in 1873, under the local option
law, it gave 1,292 majority for license. That
showed a growth of sentiment against pro
hibition. rEOHiBiriojrs gain heed.
With this general opinion west of the
mountains, of Dauphin's position, people
will more readily catch the full force of a
remark I heard a gentleman make here. He
'Tor this county to be close on the issue
would be a gain for prohibition."
He meant that even though the liquor in
terests carry Dauphin county, any reduc
tion from their previous majorities is that
much gain to Prohibitionists in the grand
aggregate of votes in the State. He pre
dicted a big reduction in those previous ma
jorities, and even ventured the assertion
that Harrisburg city might give 1,000 ma
jority for the amendment. This gentleman
is perfectly competent to judge, having
been a life-long resident of the county, occu
pying a prominent position and having an
intimate acquaintance with people in all
parts of the county, yet he takes no active
part in the present campaitrn. On the other
hand, X met Francis Jordon, Esq., a highly
esteemed Xtepnblican lawyer, who is now
recognized as the leader of the Constitu
tional amendment adherents, and who is
deeply engaged in managing the county
canvass for them. He cautiously expressed
the opinion that the county of Dauphin
would adopt the amendment by a small ma
jority, although confessing his own surprise
at such a state of public feelrsg whichhesays
came to him as a revelation. Then I inter
viewed brewers, saloon keepers and repre
sentatives of the lochiel, Hershey and
United States hotels. They all have li
censes, and here where transient custom is
furnished by the Legislature's sessions, the
bar receipts of the hotels are very large.
They seemed to agree that Dauphin county
would defeat the amendment possibly by
from 500 to 700 majority. Politicians, too,
who know every acre ot the county, appear
to be divided in their forecasts' of the re
sult. THE SITUATION' ANALYZED.
It will be seen therefore that this is one
of the counties where prediction is impossi
ble. The best local judges are not sure of
their prophecies and the campaign is too
full of uncertainties. Yet it is significant
that liquor men themselves do not expect
more than one-half the majority they had 15
The total vote of Dauphin County is
somewhere in the neighborhood of 16,000 in
a Presidental election. Of those nearly
8,000 are cast by Harrisburg. It will thus
be seen that the rural districts are as im
portant in estimating the probable vote on
prohibition as the Capital city itself. The
same gentleman who made the observation
about the closeness of the struggle gave me
this information about both city and
The sentiment for prohibition is surprisingly
strongin Harrisburg. One great element or
the strength is the remarkable attendance our
churches have here. Notwithstanding the
idea In various parts of tno state .that this
being the Capital is a Godless city, statistics
trill prove that more people in Harrisburg at
tend churches and more children go to Snnday
schools than in any other city of Pennsylvania
In proportion to our size. For instance, one of
the Protestant Sunday schools has a member
ship of 1,600, and at another the attendance of
children every Sabbath reaches 1,600. At one
of these Sabbath schools the Bible class alone
has 400 adult members, who are taught by Mr.
James McCormick, the brother-in-law of Don
CITY AOT COUNTRY.
Now, the percentage of all these church-going
people who will vote against the amend
ment will be very .small. Besides that, local
option was only defeated in Harrisburg by 63
votes, and, however true or false mav be the
rumors that more than that number cl temper
ance votes were counted out by the election
officers, I feel certain that the 15 years' growth
temperance sentiment has had since then, and
the marvelous increase in the membership of
Harrisburg churches since then, will place the
city's majority so high up on the prohibition
side that there can be no question about it.
Bteelton, on account of foreigners in the mills,
will be close.
As to the country districts, it is true that the
descendants of the Pennsylvania Dutch control
a large share of the votes. But wherever yon
find the United Brethren Church there you
will also find a conscientious opposition to the
liquor traffice In all its forms. The United
Brethren denomination is verv strong in that
part of Dauphin county known as the Lebanon
Valley. Germans and their descendants gen
erally Delong to it, ana as mm denomination is
sot nearly so liberal m their views on the liquor
question at the German Lutheran and German
Keformed churches It is my opinion the Dutch
of Dauphin will be an exception to the rule
elsewhere and will vote for the amendtaent. If
they do it will even up the aggregate so much
in the county that I should not be surprised to
Be the amendment adopted.
a rEOHiBrnoinsT stjepbised.
There are about 130 licenses in Dauphin
county. Sixty-eight of thes.e are in Harris
burg, including three large breweries and
several bottling establishment?.
Francis Gordon, referred to nliove, said:
Temperance organizations have always been
very weaic here: there is a large rumber of the
descendants of Pennsylvania Dutch in the
country sections, the city hotels hare powerful
friends and, on the whole, I did not hare much
hope a few monthsago of Dauphin doing much
for the amendment. Bnt I was surprised be
yond meunre at the tremendous crowa which
attended the first prohibition mass meeting
we held. It was last Friday night and the
Opera House a large edifice was Jammed
by all classes of people and the
enthusiasm was unbounded. We are
now pushing the organization formed at that
meeting into every part of the county. People
whom I little expected to take the side of the
amendment, tell me they will vote and use their
influence for it. These things have now altered
my opinion, and, based upon what I have told
you, 1 believe the county may possibly be won
for the reform.
Mr. Gordon was Chairman of the meeting
he describes. "Walter T. Hills, of the Fotce.
and Bev. H. T. Hector, the popular colored
orator, aroused the 1,500 people with their
TEAT BAILBOAD SCABE.
Harrisburg is a great railroad center, and
one of the railroad officials having read
what appeared in The Dispatch letter
from Altoona regarding the freight busi
ness railroads would lose if the amendment
were adopted, handed me these statistics,
which relate to the Twenty-third Internal
Bevenue district, or most of the territory in
the State lying west of the Allegheuies. He
said they were pretty nearly correct:
Abont 3.610 carloads of grain are shipped from
the West to this district, which, at $50 per car,
snows that the railroads receive in freight S1S2,
000. In addition, the railroads receive for car
rying whisky In barrels 20,000, making a total
of 202,000, which does not, however, include
freight charges on shipments of iron hoops and
staves to distilleries where tarrels are manu
factured. "Well, what will the railroad corpora
tions do in the June election, then ?" I
The official shrugged his shoulders, reply
ing that he was not in the confidences ot the
great magnates in Philadelphia.
"Why they will vote for the amendment,
of course," replied a bystander, bitterly,
"because they Enow that if there were no
more rum shops the workingman will have ,
more money to take his family on summer
excursions, and the increase in Alantis
City, lakeside and mountain fares every
summer would more than make up for the
loss in brewery freights, which, after all,
are not so great in tonnage. Hops are light,
two ATworirrNG counties.
Lebanon county, to the east of Dauphin,
is openly arrayed against the amendment.
Its great bulk of population is made up of
Dutch farmers, while their descendants are
largely sprinkled in the towns. The United
Brethren Church is strong throughout the
county, and it has a college at Annville,
too, bnt the larger number of Germans than
in Dauphin, and the presence of other re
ligious denominations, offset whatever in
fluence the Brethren would exert in favor of
prohibition. The feeling against sumptuary
laws is also strong there. In 1873 the county
defeated local option by 2,373, and with her
very small vote in 1854 also' gave 1,700 ma
jority against a prohibitory law.
But Perry connty, which bounds Dauphin
on the west, promises lrom 400 to 600 major
ity for the amendment. John C. McAllis
ter, Chairman of the Democratic County
Committeestimates it at 500. In 1873
Perry's majority for the local option method
was 578. The people are or Scotch-Irish
origin, and are principally farmers, al
though a few small iron furnaces stand
along the P. B. B. The Presbyterian
Church is very strong throughout .the
county, L. E. Stofiel.
AS A NERVE TONIC
Use Horaford's Acid Phosphate.
Dr. S. L. Williams, Clarence. Iowa, says: "I
have used it to grand effect in a case of neu
ralgic fever, and in uterine difficulties. Also,
in cases where a general tonic was needed.
For a nerve tonic I think it is the best I have
ever used, and can recommend It most confi
dently." Nothing Succeeds Like Success.

A SAD WOMAN.
The Secret Cause of Blost Ladles' Trou
bles Explained and some Sensible Ad.
It is safo to say that not ono woman in ten
thousand lives a single week in which she does
not either cry or feel like crying The cares of
life, disappointments, and, more than all else,
weaknesses and pains make all women more or
less miserable. This is all wrong. Women were
made for happiness, not for misery. When a
woman is weak she requires strength. Her
body, ber mind and all her faculties and func
tions must be put in a healthy condition, or
she cannot secure strength. Nature is always
ready to do this, bnt nature almost always re
quires assistance, and the question therefore
is, "How can we best assist nature!"
The finest physicians in the medical profes
sion have agreed that nothing so surely and
easily does this as pure whiskey taken in mod
eration, either before meals or between meals.
The effect is to gently and healthily stimulate
all the faculties to vigorous action, and thus
nature is assisted andf strength is given. There
are hundreds of thousands of ladies in America,
to-day, who are growing stronger, healthier
and more attractive in appearance by the judi
cious use of Duffy's Pure Malt Whiskey. Many
of these ladles are the wives of ministers and
professors, and hundreds of them are temper
ance women. They realize that Duffy's Pure
Malt Whiskey is a medicine, not a drink, and
that it furnishes the best and only positive help
to weakened bodies that has ever been discov
ered. Great care should be exercised, however,
to dficnrn onlv the genuine, which is absolutely
pure, for there are many so-called whiskies in
the market that are a positive injury to any
one who uses them, we venture to assert,
however, that not one woman in five hundred
who will carefully use this great aid to health
in moderation will continue to suffer from
weaknesses, but, on the contrary, will find a re
newal not only of youthful vieor, but of color,
brightness, and all those qualities which indi
cate the presence of perfect health.
