A HIGH MCIJNSIi TOWN.
The New York World wanted to
know all about that $30,000 liquor
license down at Waycross, Georgia,
and nccordimrlv wired to the Wiiy-
cross Journal as follows: "File two
hundred words explaining why
Waycross has raised its liquor
license to thirty thousand dollars.
Are there any applications at new
rater The journal teiegrapneo
to the World the following intcrcf t
inir renlv: "For sixteen years the
city license for selling has been
$30,000. Iiach succeeding council
fixes it, no change has ever been
made, and no one has applied for
the privilege within that time.
This tax was levied as prohibitive,
and has been effective. Not only
is the legal sale prohibited, but
illegal .selling is kept to the minimum ,
fltid four policemen kept order iu
thjs town of nine thousand. Ninety
per cent of white people own their
uomes. 1 uere arc no paupers, no
poor-house, no loafers, and ninety
three per cent of the children
attend school. The town supports
twenty churches, and all are well
attended. Swearing is rarely heard
on the streets, and one docs not see
a diunkeii man in three months.
Two large railroad shops and one
j . . e a
car lactory are oeraici nere be
cause the men are found to be more
reliable that iu liquor towns.
These are some reasons why Way
cross keeps the license at $30,000."
The W. C. T. U. will meet in
the Adveutist church during the
month of February. Next Monday
at the regular meeting there will be
a short nroirranime rendered. The
society will be glad to have all
women who arc interested iu the
betterment of mankind attend nil
