The liquor ideation will not be
an issue in the coming campaign so
far as the democratic party is con
cerned. It will certainly not be
issue in this county, for there is not
a foot of land in the countv where
liqnor can be made or sold. And
so far as we are informed there is
no desire anywhere to disturb the
recent Liquor Legislature. But on
the other hand there seems to be an
inclination on the part of
a 1 1 fair-mind ed persons
to give the proper time to as
certain true conditions and see how
the present liquor laws suit. Time
and experience may make it neces
sary to make changes, and the
changes mav be made when ex
perience shows the necessity therefor.
