An Ai't introduced yesterday in
Hit' A'-ifinlily by the Minister of
Piuatiee, and which wits ordered to
bo minted foi it'i second rending,
makes provision for tltf "Kempt,
custody and oxpendHuie of the pub
lic moneys, :tml lltu appointment, of
an Auditor Heneial." Such a system
its is sought to bo established in the
somewhat olaboiate nut now present
ed, is common enough in every con
stitutional go eminent of the world,
with tcihni3 the single exception of
the Hawaiian. vu incorporated body
of any financial consequence is with
out its Auditor of accounts. To this
olllccr, (as appears hy a cursory In
upeotion of the bill in question) is to
be submitted, monthly or qunttcrry,
the exhibits and vouchers of all cus
todians of the public funds, for the
purpose of ascertaining and certify
ing their correctness or otherwise ;
and no item is to be charged or
credited at the Ticasnry in the ac
counts of government debits and
credits, until it has duly passed the
Auditor General ; and no check, or
der or draft to ho cashed at the
Treasury unless allowed by the Min
ister of Finance after audit. Theie
is, of couise, a good deal of machin
ery and detail about the bill; but it
it is caiefully and thoroughly drawn,
and its operation cannot be other
whe than salutaiy in the interests of
the public service.

A hospital is sadly needed here.
In fact each island ought to have
one, to which a competent medical
olllcer should bo ftttachejl, and ade

he may live and appear as a gentle
man and at the same time save
something for his family which,
owing to the price of provisions, etc.
here, together with horse-feed, I am
sure Dr. Hammond cannot do. For
the work is much heavier on a skil

be on another.

Will you allow mo to correct an
error' or two in your article of Fri
day, under the title of Prohibi
tion," so far as lelates to Temper
ance 'hi Ohio?' It is not correct to
say that since 1871, tho law in re-,
gard to the sale of liquors was
strictly prohibitory." The 'Adair
Law," so called, prohibited the" sale
of intoxicants to drunkards, and to
minors ; but it afforded no restraint
upon making drunkards of moderate
di inkers, or any over 21 years of
age. It provided penalties for speci
fic damages resulting from the sale.
Wives might recover damages for
sale to their husluuids, after having
notified sellers not to sell to thein,
for a disiegard of their wishes.
Further than that, there was no pro
hibition of the sale. A good many
recoveries have been made under
the law; but it cannot be said t,hat it
has ever been generally enforced.
The "Smith bill"' of the last
legislature, to which you refer, only
has reference to the desecration of
the Sabbath. Tho "Pond bill," so
called, provided for taxing- saloons
and retailers, from 200 to 1500 dollars
annually, according to the grade of
the city or town where they existed,
and fixed a penally for selling with
out having paid the tax. A large
number, especially in the principal
cities, promptly paid the tax, and
went on with their destructive work.
But the Supreme Court -of the State
has declared the Pond law unconsti
tutional. The State, Constitution pro
hibits the licensing of liquor sellers ;
and the. Court decided that tho tax
ing was a virtual licensing, iuu
therefore unconstitutional. Of course
the taxes already paid must be
The last Legislature also passed a
law allowing "local option" in
cities or towns where colleges arc
located. That is, a majority of the
voters of such towns may direct
councils to pas ordinances entirely
suppressing the sale, of intoxicants
within their boundaries. That is
the extent of prohibition hy law in
You arc right in surmising that the
prohibition-question is to be promi
nent in the politics of Ohio here
after. And the same is true ns to
many other States. An Ojiioan.
Our thanks are due to " An
