The Good of the Tuppfcr Law.
One thing wc desire to commend
Judge Cooke for. He has addjresed
himself to the task of promoting temper
ancc and good behavior among the peo

circuit of what is known as the 'Tupper
law, This law requires that the vendor
of ardent spirit shall havo a tavern li
c use and keep rooms and beds for trav
elers, and stabling and provender for
horses, ind, if on for cod, would brak, up
ninetynino out of a hundred of these
shops and bar rooms, wlico men aquan

support of their wives and children, and

drinks, health', intelligence and honor
are wrecked, and th? seo 1 planted which
1 bear the fruit of murders violence and
every foul crime kuuwn to our criminal
Now, the Topper law imposes a con.
! ditton upon the vending of what Charles
Lamb calls liquid damnation, for which
iu the absence of something better, we
ought to bo thankful. It amounts to
prohibition in many cases and localities,
and, of course, to the improvement of
the condition ol society where it is put
info force" Some months ago, the bar
rooms iu And r-on wore all closed under
this law. and what was better, the citi
zens followed it up with electing to the
municipal offices ui?n who were opposed
to granting licenses to sell ardent spirits

sobriety, industry and peace are the con
sequence in that town, and a drunken
man is rarely if seen in it. We per
