Contests were the amusement for those not playing cards. By Harky y. Boss Well up toward the top of the list among the thriving growing cities of the ninth District is Frankfort the county seat of Clinton county. As is the Case with Lebanon whose experience was told in the Ledger press last week it has been without saloons for the past years and in that time it has made More growth and Progress in practically every line than during any other ten years of its history. I spent saturday in Era Niort interviewing business men leading Citi or is and no cog th.-. 2,&Quot. Or More with whom 1 talk a ind they were chosen at random i but one Man did not Asser that the City is now Many Tine s better than it Hail b in when i had saloons. I Learie a afterwards that head been one of tie leders m the wet movement had contributed heavily to it and had taken in defeat to heart of badly that he would not accept the evidence that Surrey ruled him on every hand. In Ittu Frankfort had saloons tit of 27 in the county but by Jan. 1, All had been eliminated from the county by remonstrance except four All inside the City. Clinton county held a local option election that year and voted dry by a majority of 2,094. In the City the vote was 1212 dry and 985 wet. Two years later the City voted again under the Proctor Law and the majority was Fly i. Since that time sentiment against saloons has grown steadily and so Many j of those at first feared the effect i upon business have been convinced that a dry town thrives Best that there Haa been no other election. One businessman with whom i talk and he had been last As wet at one time told me he believed that new after six years without of tons fully i l percent of the Busi i Ness Rorn about the Sci Are would open i it a their return. J Over where in for flt it they regard the Saloon i thing of the . So far As they concerned it is settled j it a infect Lyas the Lue to ii of slavery is of r the nation that to the menial Altitude they have it toward that ome of Rie Are for Attica s Prosperity after the i saloons Are voted out could have heard the comments of the business men with whom i talk saturday could have i visited them in their stores and seen them Busy and prosperous a so Busy in fact were some of them that they could hardly find time to talk about it. There Are probably 2.&Quot Quot business rooms in the City and there Are now but four vacant a smaller percent than usually prevailed in Saloon Days. Of these one is a Large new store room occupied until Jan. 1st by a dry goods store. The owner last fall came into control of Large financial interests in another City and retired from the retail business. Other dry goods men of the City took Over his lease and Are paying rent on the building to prevent another dry goods store from act mag in an another sort of business no a negotiating for it two of the other re Nis ire Side streets in undo arable Loc Ion in addition to Thi in any Husi Ziess rooms have l i i Lungi.
