Entered as second-class matter October

egon, under the Act cf Congress of March
THURSDAY MAY 3, 1906.
The communication from C. M.
Van Peet, Attorney, for the Anti
Saloon League, as published in last
week's issue of the Wheatfield, mis
qoutes The Wheatfield's issue of
Mirch 29th. We did not say that we
beleived that an error was being made
in attempting to regulate the business
0f closing the saloons, but did say that
twe believed an error was "being made
Hn.-a,ttempun?to regulate the business
.by closing the &uloons."
Mr. Van Pest says that "the saloon
..business .cannot be regulated by
licensing it" and refers to the saloons'
-of Portland which lie claims violate
the laws seven days .in the week. If
ihis is so and Mr. Van Peet knows it
-as' he claims .to., why doRsa't he
..prosecute in the .name af She Antl
.saloon .League .and compel ihem to
respect the laws regulating their busi
ness. According to his own statement
this violation should not be considered
in jhe question as it does not argue for
prohibition ; but he says the main
question is the proposed amendment.
We do not possess a copy of the Local
Option law but believe the present la
says that In case a precinct or county
goes "wet" another election on the
question can be held in two years, but
if it goes "dry" an election on the
question cannot be held for four years.
This seems to us a rather one sided
law and should be amended.
Here In Lexington, we have two
saloons, both complying with the
present laws of the state, county and
municipalety regulating the liquor
business. In fact every saloon in the
county and every other business is
being closed on Sunday in conformity
with the Sunday closing law.
We still believe that it Is an error
to attempt to regulate the liquor busi
ness by closing the saloon. We have
lived in a prohibition state and know
where of we speak.
More liquor was consumed publicly
than before prohibition went into effect.
It was. shipped in kegs and jugs and
passed around to all, until it was gone.
The consequences was that a "gang"
was on a drunk almost continually.
The law said they must not have
liquor, but they did hay? it,

j For more than twenty years Mr'; J,
B. Massey, of 3322 Clinton St!,
j Minneapolis, Minn., was tortured by
j Sciatica. The pain and suffering
j which he endured during this time is
I beyond comprehesion. Nothing gave
him any permanent relief nutil he used
Chamberlain's Pain Balm. One ap
plication of that liniment relieved the.
pain and made sleep and rest possible,
and less than one bottle has effected a"
permanent cure. If ' troubled with
sciatica or rheumatism why not try a
25-cent bottle of Pain Palm and see
for yourself how quickly it relieves the
pain. For sale by W. P, McMillan.

Not If ai Rich ai Rockefeller.
If you had all the wealth of Rocke
feller, the Standard Oil magnate, you
could not buy a better medicine for
bowel complaints than Chamberlain's
Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Kemeay.
The most eminent physician can not
prescribe a better preparation for colic
. . ... i . i
and diarrhoea, both for cnuaren anu
sdults. The uniform success of this
remedy has shown it to be superior to
all others. It never falls, and wnen
reduced with water and sweetened, is
pleasant to take. Every family should
be supplied with it. Sold by w. r
