THE TEMPERANCE ALLIANCE.
The Linn County Temperance Alli
ance which convened at Kclo on Tues
day Inst was composed of earnest and
.enthusiastic men and women who have
ai heart the great work of reform. The
expression of the delegates which rej
resented a large portion of the county
bad no uncertain sound. Tbe work la
going gloriously cn, and the sentiment
in favor of prohibition Is growing
stronger and stronger in the minds of
tbe people. The masterly and un
answerable arguirent3 ot such men as
Dr. S. U. Irvine whoaddressed the Alli
ance on Tuesday evening last and the
influence of good men and women all
over this county and state, Is having a
meet agreeaMe effect, and will undoubt
edly result in a grand victory against
the rum power In November next. In
hort, the meeting at Scio was a good
one, and the generosity with which the
good people of that beautiful old town
"in the Forks," threw open their doors
to the entertainment of all who attend
ed in the iuterest of the work which
tailed thorn there, will make the occa
sion one to lw remembered with pleas
ure, as well as ono fraught with the
COV. MARTIN IN IS37.
I stated In my message a year aev,
that, while the law cf 1SS3 embodied
tsome defects, its general results hud
been very favorable.
A great reform has certainly been ac
complished In Kansas. Intemperance
Is steadily and surely decreasing. In
thousands of bonus where want and
wretchedness and Buffering were once
familiar guests, plenty, happiness and
contentment now abide. Thousands
of wives and children are better clothed
and fed than they were when the sa
loon absorbed all the earnings of hus
bands and fathers. The marvelous ma
terial growth of the state during the
past six years, has been accompanied
by an equally marvelous moral progress
and it can be fairly and faithfully as
serted that in no portion of the civilized
world can a million and a half of peo
ple be found who are more temperate
than the people of Kansas.
There's not a town, city or neighbor
hood in the (state in which an illegal
traffic in liquors can be carried on for
a single week if the loeal otlicen dis
charge the duties plainly enjoined upon
them by law with seal ami fidelity.
Provide" the necessary laws to compel
local officers to discharire their sworn
duties, and remove them when they
they refuse or neglect to do so, ami
there will be no need to make any ot her
changes iu our statutes. On the other
band, no matter what amendments
are made not what provisions are added
to the present laws, but they will be
Ineffectual so Ions as the municipal
authorities of cities or counties can
nullify or disregard them without fear
of removal or punishment.
The public sentiment of Kansas is
overwhelmingly against the liquor traf
fic. Thousands of men. who a few
years agoepposed prohibition, or doubt
ed whether it was the best method of
dealing with the liquor traffic, have
tK-en and frankly aekmSwledtre itsbene-fieient-results
and its practical nuccess.
The temptations with whie-h the open
saloons lured the youth of the land to
dissrrace and destruction; the appetite
for liquor bred within its walls by the
treating custom; the vice, crime. jkv
erty, suffering and sorrow of which it
is always the fruitful source: all these
evil results of the open saloon hat
been abolished in nearly every city and
town in Kansas.
Untetected Sections to be Restored to the
Washington, May 20. The secre
tary of the interior to-d ay addressed a
communication to the president, set
ting forth that a large number of land
grant railroad companies have made
Indemnity selections to the full extent i
of their rights under tbe respective
grants, and tnat a number of others,
while thev have not selected the full
quantity, nave selected ail' the land
within "the indemnity limits of such
grants which aresubje-t to such select
Ions; that under the rulings of this de
partment no settler cun acquire any
rights under any of the general laud
laws to any part of the public domain,
so longas the same remains withdrawn
by order of the president, or by his au
thority, and that there seems now to
be no "valid reason why these orders of
withdrawal should not be revoked.
The communication continues: "Re
strictions to the bona tide settlement of
the public domain should be removed
as speed Uy as possible after the reasons
which created them have ceased to ex
ist. Believing that these railroad om
panies have had ample time to assert
any rights they may nave in regard to
indemnity to wnicn tney may no en
titled, and that no unnecessary hard
ships can now result to them by restor
ing these lands to the public domain
for the benefit of settlers, it is my pur
pose, if it meets your approval, to take
all necessary steps looking to the ac
complishment of t his object. I suprgest
in order to prevent action being taken
which may result in hardships in any
case, that "thirty day's notice bo given,
by publication "in some leading news
paper in the locality of these respective
roads, notifying their managers of the
purpose of this department, in order
that they may show eause, if they can,
by a certain day to be fixed in such
notice, why the proposition therein
submitted should not be carried into
The president endorsed his approval
upon the communication, and the sec
retary will immediately take steps to
carry into effect the policy indicated.
Among the railroads named are the
Illinois t)entral, in the state of Illinois;
Cedar Rapids fe Missouri River, and
