The Governor on Prohibition.
Governor Tinman plainly inti
mates that he will not vhto an]
prohibition measure which the
Legislature may see fit to enact.
Tbisy notwithstanding in his
judgment such a law would' not
only prove futile, but in a measure
disastrous financially, inasmuch
as it would deprive the State of
considerable revenue and entail
additiona^expenditure in employ
';- ing the "many eyes and far-reach
ing hands" necessary "to carry it
The Governor, in the course of
^hia able paper on the subject,
make? it clear that the Legislature
is not to be considered as pledged
to pass such a law in consequence
of the issue as presented in the
recent election ; he makes manifest
his conviction not only that the
\|aw "will not enfor.ce itself," but
that "prohibition will not prohib
it it;" he calls attention to the in
ability of the courte to deal effec
; tively with the prosecution of such
cases in localities where public
sentiment is divided on the sub-,
joct; (in connection with which
we may note the failure in, our j
courts of the test cases recently j
made in this city under the Sun
day law ; ) he says, "with a major
ity of the people in i he towns in
favor of selling whiskey the Prohi
bitionists in the country will find
themselves handicapped and their
efforts rendered nugatory in at
tempting to control the nuisance,"
and that "the people in this S?tate
are already sadly divided along
. this very line of town against
country, and the wisdom of further
division is questionable."
He still thinks the adoption of
his former recommendation giving
the city or town the right tb license
the sale, but directing all revenne
^ therefrom into the county treasury,
would be the most satisfactory and
effective disposition of the matter:
And "Another danger," he says,
"which we cannot be blind to, will
be the probability of a desperate
political struggle between the Pro
hibitionists and che Anti-Prohibi
tionists two years hence, with an
appeal to the negro as the balance
of power ; for in every town and
country where this question has
been fought out at the polls, that
has been the effect, and when ap
plied to the State we may look for
a like result."
While giving the weight of his
argument and opinion against the
proposed experiment, however, he
says they are given "rather as a
. matter of information than as
showing any antagonistic views on
my pi rt," and that he "will cheer
fully approve of any law" the Leg
islature "may enact" on the sub
The fate of Prohibition, there
fore, is entirely in the hands of the
General Assembly and time will
soon determine the purpose of the
people's representatives with re
gard to it.-Charleston Sun. *
*- Lay Still, Sonny.
The following story is told ol
Dr.John Finley, of Kentucky:
The doctor is rather a small man,
and was traveling in company with
Col. Crocket Sayers, late U. S.
Assessor for thejsixth district o?
Kentucky. Crocket, as everybody
calls him, is one of those whole
souled, jolly fellows, always ready
to play a joke upon anyone, and
can draw the scales too over three
hundred pounds. They had neg
lected to secure sleeping berthe
before starting ; so when they ar
rived at th? depot but one berth
remainedjunsold. With all due
politeness, each offered to surren
der bis claims to the other; both
Rei ning, but agreed to occupy ii
together. It was a "tight squeeze,'
but they both "turned in." Ar
hour or two passed, in which
neither of them could go to sleep ;
so Crocket determined to get up
and-take a smoke. This was a
happy relief to the doctor. Hi
turned his face over to the wali
and was soon fast asleep. Thc
train in the meantime had stopped
at a small station, 'and an elderly
female got aboard. Her figure wac
almost on. a par with that of t h :
colonel's. She was in no waj
backward in denouncing railroads
their employees, and everybody
who would travel on them. Wher
she learned that all the berths hac
been taken, she "must lay down
. for she was nighjdead 1 " This wat
a glorious moment for Crocket
Winking at the conductor, he po
- . litely offered to surrender to he]
his berth, provided she had no ob
jections to sleep with his "litth
boy." Of course she had none. She
had "raised seven, and wac fht
. grandmother of as many more.'
She thanked him kindly, pullec
off her shoes and other f?xTns', anc
Spiled in." The doctor was sleep
ing soundly, but before day h(
became quite restless. The ole
lady very motherly patted him or
the heai?, saying, "Lay still, sonnj
your papa will soon be here ; go tc
sleep?, you precious," and othei
>B??riilar epithets, which the doctor
he became fully awake.
iew did not emanate from- his
I friend, the colonel. Realizing ids
j position, he hounded over the old
lady and made tracks for. the rear
end of the car. She screamed, and
in a moment everybody was up,
thinking, perhaps, that something
had happened. ' The joke was ex
plained, the passengers laughed,
Crocket was forced to beat a hasty
retreat, in order to keep clear of
the clutches bf the old woman,
I while Dr. Finley sheepishly stole
I into the forward car, and did not
show himself again until the train
and induces sleep.
