All the Year Round
To Voters at the August
Election, on the Question of
License in the Constitution.
Xlie Constitutional Conreutiou wliich
recently adjourned in Cincinnati, in
corporated no positive provision or tie
elded policy in that instrument relative
to the traffic in intoxicating liquors;
but in their discretion, leferred the
subject to the people, as embraced in
the following propositions :
"License to traffic in spirituous, vin
ous or malt liquors, under such reguln
tions and limitations as shall be pre
scribed by law, may be granted ; but
this section shall not prevent the gen
eral assembly from passing laws to re
strict sncli tralllc, and to compensate in
juries mulling therefrom."
Xo license to traffic in intoxicating
liquors shall be granted; but the gen
eral assembly may, by law, restrain or
prohibit such traffic, or provide against
evils resulting therefrom."
Should the New Constitution be
adopted, one or the other of these will
form a section of it. If the first, then
will the organic law of the State au
thorize the granting of
to traffic In spiritous, vinwos r malt
liquors. Those who shall vote for this
proposition, argue that "the use of in
toxicating beverages cannot be prohi
bited, but by license, may be regulated."
Their sale will bo restricted, conse
quently a less number of consumers,"
"Opportunity anil, .freedom. Jo .drink
will obviate excessive indulgence,"
Only responsible and respectable men,
will procure license, thus the business
will be taken from the lower and dis
reputable class of venders," "The
State' and county revenue will be in
creased, and taxes correspondingly
lessoned." Let us briefly examine
and sec whether these things arc so. If,
in the present advancement of socictyl
tho use of intoxicating beverages can-
ot be prohibited by law, how, by per
mitting their sale, can the consumption
be dlminUhed-or regulated! Will those
inclined to their cups be more readily
refused drinks in a licensed, than an
unlicensed saloon? Will not, rather,
the proprietor who pays for the privil
ege of vending,be the more anxious to
sell, that thereby he may get his money
back ? A ill only a limited quautlty be
sold a customer, after which, to him,
the bar will be closed ? or rather, to
pay for the license giving authority to
sell, will liquors not ie dealt out,'so
ong as money will come in ? How will
or can you regulate the thirst for strong
drink, or the inclination to satisfy a
perverted appetite by a license? II you
cannot, to attempt to regulate an evil
or a vice by legalizing it, is a danger
ous, experiment, and if applicable to
drunkenness, why not to profanity? to
lotteries? to prize-fighting? to polyg
amy and prostitution ?
LICENSE WILL NOT DECREASE DRUNKENNESS.
Throw the guard of law around' the
rumseller's business, and you recognize
it as legitimate. More respectable men
will patronize it; they will influence
others, and soon a class of citizens, not
before addicted to drinking, will be
come drunkards. The large army of
conflrined inebriates will be recruited
and the demand lor intoxicating liquors
correspondingly increased. Statistics
invariably show a larger number of
dramshops compared to population
in those States where license, to fell In
toxicating liquors arc granted. Like
evidence establishes a rapid increase of
drinking houses iu the same State, com
pared with its condition and morals,
than when under the "No License"
ystcm. New York and -Massachusetts
are fair examples. In the former, with
but a brief trial of six mouths under
the anti-license law, intemperance and
committals for crime decreased to an
extent which astonished every one. In
the cities of Albany, Utica, Syracuse,
Auburn and Rochester nlonc,t!ic records
show two thousand less police arrest
tli an for the corresponding previous
and following six months. Such was
the experience all over the State, ftign
as license was restored, saloons, Intem
perance, violation of law, :j.d punish
ments therefor increased fiom twenty-
four to two hundred per cent. The
same is true of Massachusetts, and the
figures substantiating the fact may be
seen at any time. Including the laws
f Plymouth Colony, In 183G, over two
hundred stringent license enactments
live been in ioree in that State, and
every one proved a failure in regula
ting, restricting, or diminishing the
traffic In alcoholic drinks. The result
in Massachusetts Is that experienced by
every other Liccnso State iu the Union,
erllled by ttie history of all European
nations. The uuifoim and certain ef
fect everywhere has been that with li
censed tippling houses, drunkenness,
drunkards, crime, povt i t. i.tl uUuess,
have steadily increased, bearing plen
tlfully their bitter Dead Sea Fruits, As

and what then? Will any person drink
the less? 'EstablisTf !ecr houses, and
those who now ouly'spend iheir money
for the beverage and drink it when
done their day's labor, will then spend
money and time both. Ale shops, plen.

soon the amount of liquors retailed and
drank, will' double that purchased by
BESPONSBLE AND.BESPECTABLE MEN,
only it is claimed, under the licen
law, ean purchie the privilege to sell
liquors. Are sure assumptions verified
by facts? Will truly respectable men
keep whisky saloons? AV1I1 not the li
quor interests reqnire persons in such
business to be In sympathy with their
customcrs,aud under the'daily demands
of the traffic, license would soon be sold
so cheaply, that irresponsible and "mer
cenary 'melt- could .purchase them' at
will. Ton cannot estaClish an 'arostoc
racy of. dram shops' among a people
who deprecate and detest monopolies,
If the rich man alone can buy a license
to sell to his patrician customers, the
poor man in defiance of law supply the
plebeian consumers. Pennsylvania
grants license, and, among the twelve
hundred saloon keepers in the city of
Pittsburgh, the pressure of the whisky
interest compelled the licensing of many
men who rank very low even among
the "baser sort." In the cities of New
York and Brooklyn, among the twelve
thousand liquor sellers there, are reck
oned hundreds who arc far from beinj
either responsible or respectable. From
a high priced licens at first.the whole
sale and retail liquor dealers, suppor
ted by the moderate and habitual drink
er, forced a reduction until men, with
but little money and no reputation can
secure the authority aud sanctioned of
the State to sell the vilest of adultera
ted poisons under the guise and label
of common spirituous beverages. It
would be the same jn Ohio. A business
which produces the natural results of
disease, crinie, poverty, wretchedness
aud death cannot be made respectable
LICENSE WILL NEITHER INCREASE REVENUE,
OR DIMINISH TAXES.
The financial history of the world
long ago established this fact beyond
dispute. Official documents, prepared
by the General Government, directly
show that the traffic intoxicating liquors
cost the several States of the Union in
round numbers, $700,000,000. It bur
dens the Republic with 800,000 paupers,
at an annual cost of $100,000,000. The
price of crime from intemperance is
f40,000,000. The waste of grain and
fruit, at an average cost per bushel,
$50,000,000. The loss of productive in
dustry is estimated at $225,000,000. The
ggregate expense of the rum traffic,
In all its bearings, is put down in fig
ures amounting to $187,000,000 per
annum. But a comparatively small
portion of this immense sum finds its
way into State" or county treasuries in
payment for license. Beside the ex
penditures in money, 100,000 persons,
from the effects of intoxicating drinks,
are sent to prisons and almshouses;
S0,000 to drunkard's graves aud more
than 200,000 children reduced to want
and beggary. The license State of
Pennsylvania, spent during the year
1870, for liquors of all kiuds, $152,003,-
945, and for schools and school purposes
$5,800,420. She had engaged iu the liq
uor business 78,000 persons, and but 17,-
870 school teachers. Her statistics show
24,000 criminals, four-fifths of whom
were made so by drink. But if revenue
be the-object, why Hot authorize all to
sell who may apply? Give the poor
rumseller an equal chance with the rich,
and if every tenth man wishes to buy a
license, sell it to him aud fill the treas

of a traffic voters are culled upou to
say, whether or not, it shall be licensed
in Ohio. Let them consider well before
they, by any act of their own, throw
around it the sanction aud protection
of law. The proposition should not be
regarded as partizan in its character,
but rather as involving great questions
of Constitutional Authority, Political
Economy aud Christian Morality, to be
decided by the judgment and will of all
parties and people. The very Proposi
tion in question virtually admits traffic
in intoxicating liquors as a beverage to
be a wrong inflicted upou society, and
provides that the General Assembly
may pass laW3 "to compensate injuries
resulting therefrom." Will any person
admit the State would be justified in
selling the privilege to one man to
PERPETRATE AN INJURY
upon another, aud then punish him by
fine and imprisonment for that which
it gave him license to do? On the other
hand, would it not be unwise, unjust
and impolitic for the State to sanction or
protect ajraflie whicli entails an annual
loss of millions of dollars upon the in
dustry of the country? fills our prisons
with paupers? our asylums with insane
and imbecile? fosters disease and idle

human race? a destroyer of society?

an evil, to vote, oil the 18th of August

fined chiefly to the merchants and man
ufacturers of Cinnlnnati.it ranked first
among the displays in the country of
the arts and sciences. Year after year
its sphere has continued to broaden,
Each successive autumn exhibitors have
been attracted from a wider territory,
until it stands to-day, pre-eminently
the representative American Expos!
tion. Its fame is known from one end
of the country to the other, and when
last year, the Fine Art Committee
sought to increase the attractions of the
gallery of paintings by borrowing from
some of the famous collections
Europe, its members found no difficui
ty in securing what they wanted. Ex
hibitions of a similar nature, under
taken in other cities, have been organ
ized on the plan furnished by our own
a delicate compliment to the sagacity
and judgment of the Cincinnati Com
missioners that has probably not been
unappreciated, snd which well shows
the reputation the Exposition has
throughout the land.
The success that has attended the
Commissioners is due, first, to the in
defatigable energy and sound common
sense that have marked their work;
and, second, to the experience whicli
each succeeding year .makes richer and
more valuable. The chiel executive
officers of tho Exposition have been
educated in the business of conducting
great exhibitions; and as the officers of
one year have retired to make room for
new men, the new men come thorough-
familiar with all the details, and are
new, therefore, only to the dignities of
office, and not to the knowledge of the
necessities of the duties. They have
gone through all the grades of this great
practical school, and worked their way
up by their ability and perseverance,
The splendid success they have won has
been fairly earned and is richly de
There is no reason to doubt that the
Exposition of 1874 will excel those that
have preceded it. Wendell Phillips
said, in the old abolitionist times: "Re
member, you can not be the equal of
your ancestors,- unless you excel them
as they excelled theirs." It is in the
full spirit of this remark that the men
who are at the head of the Commission
ers for this year are pushing things. We
suppose there are many who fancy that
it will be impossible this year to repeat
the glories of the Exposition of 1873.
We only say just wait and see. The
officers arc doing an immense amount
of labor, and the results they have al
ready secured are astonishing. Widely
ns the Exposition last year was adver
tised, the coming one has been adver-
sed mere widely still. Many as were
the lines of railroad over which reduced
rates of fare were obtained a year ago,
more extensive arrangements have been
made for this year. Large as was the
space devoted to display in '73, there Is
more in '74. Last year the catalogue
showed seventy-eight classes in whicli
premiums were to be given. This year
there are nearly Dinety. Last year the
umber of premiums given was eight
hundred . This year over eleven hun
dred arc offered. A million printed
forms, advertisements of the Exposi
tion, have been sent out, and arrange
ments are perfected to make the Expo
sition known throughout all parts of
the country. More applications for
pace have been received up to the pres
ent. tlm&. Jhaisliad bei--Te?;iYeHnst:
year, and the applications already at
hand make it certain that every State
east of the Mississippi will be repre
sented, and many of those west of it.
In Special departments also this year's
Exposition will be peculiarly rich. The
horticultural display will be by all odds
ahead of that of any previous year, and
the fine art department will have some
of the finest paintings in New York,
and a collection of engravings from Phi
ladelphia that is famous the country
over. MoreeYcr, arrangements are In
progress which, it is hoped, will secure
-some of the famous paintings of this
city that have not yet been exhibited.
No citizen of Cincinnati need fear
that the Exposition is not going to main
tain its pre-eminence as the most con-
plcuous and- comprehensive display of
the industries and arts of the country
now before the American people. By
September, business, that already feels
new life, will be fairly on Its legs
again; energies repressed for a year
will be working, and it is safe to count
upon an attendance unprecedented in
the history of the Exposition. Cincin

Origin of the "Fighting Editor."
The John Bull newspaper edited by
Theodore Hook, frequently indulged In
offensive personalities in remarking on
the character and conduct of public
men. A military hero, who would per
sist in placing himself consplcuosly be

share of what he considered malignant
and libelous abuse in the columns ef

Besides this array an incredible number

Mr. Myers thus "figures" tke problem
of sheep farming in Nebraska, with a
flock 1,000 head: 100 tons ofbaycost-
500 bushels of sheaf oats, $100 ; shepherd
ing for S months, $150; wages for 1 man
man for 4 months, $100; do. one month
$30; washing, shearing, and packing
wool $200; salt, $35; shedding for win
ter, $50;lssesat two per cent, $70;
total, $1,035. By 4,5001b. of wool, at
40c per S., $1,800; 400 lambs, at, $2.50,
$1,000; total $2,800.
Mr. Myers considers his allowance
for expenses very liberal. He charges
hay at too high a figure and the 'per
centage of loss is not generally so large
as stated, as sheep are subject to no
disease whatever, on the Nebraska
prairie. One man also could take
hargeofaflock of a thousand during
the summer months ; and, in winter one
boy can feed them, as it is best to let
the sheep run to the hay all the time,
and the oats are to be fed In the sheaf.
Mr. Myers further claims that if a farm
er will do most of his work himself, lur
ing help only when it Is necessary for
harvesting, hay, shearing, c tne
sheep will pay him $3.00 per head, as
against $2.00 when help Is hired liberal
ly. Mr. Myers estimates his sheep to
be worth $3.50 each. On 1,000 sheep,
the investment would be $3,500; and,
as the net profit shown above amounts
te $1,705, the return on the investment
Is over 50 per cent.

The Insect Plague.
Colorado has sent us the potato-bug
and we owe it a bitter grudge for the
infliction. It is some consolation to
know that, while the villainous insect
has spread itself all over the Eastern
States, it still remains to plague the Ter
ritory from which it came; but the
people to be affected by it, there, are so
few that this consolation really amounts
to little. The whole country, lrom the
Rocky Mountains to the Atlantic ectan,
now the pray of this insect pest; and
the name of Colorado smells as vilely in
the public nostrils as the malodorous.
Insects to which it first gave birth.
Next to this pest comes the grasshop
per. It is far more destructive tnan
the potato-bug, for the latter attacks
only esculents, while the grasshoppers
take anything that comes before them.
They go through a cornfield likethe blast
of a whirlwind, leaving nothing but
the bare stalks behind; wheat fields,
oat fields and grass arc shorn off by
them, close to the ground; and if the
grain has been gathered into shocks
they attack, and demolish the garnered
sheaves with equal thoroughness. But,
while so utterly destructive, the gt ass-
hoppers have not yet found their way
east of the Mississippi in any great force.
Colorado ha3 been overwhelmed with
them; and Nebraska and Minnesota;
the plains east of Denver swarm with
them and the extreme western counties
of Kansas, which border the plains,
were last week fairly alive with them.
The wheat and oats crops in these coun
ties had fortunately been gathered be-
fore.they appeared ;"but every cornfield
in Western Kansas is to-day desolate
and bare. The devastating army was
slowly working eastward, at last ac
counts, the farmers ahead of their line
of march were gathering the green ears
of corn from the fields to save them from
the insect marauders. The season Is
probably too far advanced to look for
them, in this region this year, but bow
long will it be, in the natural course of
things) before the grasshopper becomes
as great a burden in Pennsylvania as
the potato beetle?
A third insect plague of the West,
but wliich has not yet reached us, is
the chinchbag. It may be heard of all
through Illinois, Misouri and Kansas,
where It has been terribly destructive.
The chinch-bug is a bed-bug mounted
on wings-at least it has been so describ
ed to us and it goes for a corn-field
with the same vigor that dfstinguishes
its congener. Jt doa not, however.
alight in the flocks all over a field, as
the grasshopper dees, but attacks a
corn-field systematically, be ginning at
the outside row, always, and advancing
to the second only when the first has
been destroyed. Any traveler through
the State we have named will notice the
singular look of every corn-field he
comes to, caused by the ravages of this
insect. On one side of the field he will
seo from ten to fifty rows of corn com
pletely destroyed, and the rest of the
field green and flourishing, their ravag
es having been arrested before total de
struction took place.
A correspondent or tne x. Jimea
mentions a fourth plague the crickets.
In Idaho the crickets have made one
of their occasional toursbelng, in sev
eral places, as dense as ever was the
Egyptian storm of locusts. The dis
gusting creatures form themselves into
hillocks under, apparently, every blade
of grass, and move in myriads over
fields planted with cereals and escu
lents. A field is preserved from the
ravages of these pests by digging a
bench around it, the base being narrow
then widening as it slopes upwaru.-
When the insects fall Into this ditch they
cannot crawl up its sides owing to Its
aogle, and it is too deep for them to
jump out, so that thousands or them

tention of floating to fresh pastures.
They follow the course of the. current,
and on reaching tranquil water swim
toward the shore and recommence their
devastating work on the first edible
vegetation they encounter.
The home of all these pests is in toe
Rocky Mountains, and in the plains east
of that range, where they deposit their
eggs to be hatched by the hot sun. From
there they spread eastward; and mo
potato-bug may be only the advance
courier or the legions of destructives
that are to follow in his wake. So far,
however, this part of the world has es
