Wkono. Our correspondent, "Truth,"
Is mistaken when sho isys that thero has
not been a mayor of Cairo In riinu years
who has had grit enough to roipiiro saloons
to be cloiod on Sunday. Wo remember
distinctly that in iflC'J a man who wishud
to get a drink bad to go into tbo saloon ho
patronized by tho back door ; but tho
temperance folks were not satisfied then.
We have noticed this: that temperanco
folks aro swift to blamo and slow to com
mend. They oUervu what is not doint
and rail to see what Is dono. Another fuel
atust bo patent that moit lomporaiico
people that is to say, prohibitionists uru
republicans, aud generally tho most radi
cal kind. They will blat about tbo evils
of drunkenness, denouncu liijuor-sollors
and liquor-dealers, and then will voto for
Her. ao advocate of liquor-sell.
log or a ltquor-drirvker, who It a ropubli
can er a bolting democrat, in preference
to a domocrat who don't drink und don't
boliovo In drinking. In our opinion most
of the very loud temporanco republicans
aro frauds. "Truth" should open her
batteries, at short range, upon thorn.
"TnUTH." This correspondent Is tho
florcoit wo havn ovor Indulged In. Sho
writes furiously; aud in tomo particulars,
not very sensibly. For Instanco "Truth"
declars that sho bo) loves tbo liquor lloonio
in Cairo ought ti ba $1,000. Sho Is as
unreasonable on hor side as tho saloon
koeport aro on thoir sldo. Sho would
hftvo a llcaiiio Irapotod no parson could
pay, whilo somo of the saloon-keopors bo
llevo tboy should pay no liconso nt nil.
A liquor llconto of 31,000 would bo tin
rcatonabiy high ; a liquor license of $100
would bo unreasonably low.
Tbo harsh languago "Truth" sees prop
er to 11 10 In rctorence to saloon-keepers
wo deprecate. It may shock somo church
members, but wo aro compelled to say wo
know ealoon-koopors who aro kind
hearted, liberal, good mun bettor men
than many who do not tasto liquor und
sit closo to tbo pulpit In orthodox churches.
It li trim ww know saloon-keepers who
aro as moan as tho dirt under our foot,
and who would hosltnto at nothing bad;
but we also know roily Ions peoplo who aro
narrow-minded raiculj. "Truth" has not
cught tho spirit of tho cruiado. Sho
would make men sober or kill limn ; sho
would mako thorn Christians or send thorn
from tho stake into ctornity. While sho
prays to Uod to convert, sho curses thoio
the would save. Tho cruindo has
thus far had upon its banner
as n JcgonJ, tho words: "Kindnois,
porsuaslon j love." It has not flung at
any class as Truth has harsh nnathemns.
Sho should learn that lovo can accomplish
wondors; but that thoso who err cannot
bo reformed by thorn who call thorn ras-
ctls and murderers.
"Lager beer nnd whisky," says tho cor
respondent, "aro at tho root of ovary known
ovll." This Is not tbo truth, good "Truth."
Thero aro lands in which liquor U not
drunk whoro rolig'.on and temporanco go
hand in hand ; but In thoso lands thoro aro
known ovils. Would "Truth" bavo us
glvo up our Christian civilization und bo-
como Turks; bocuuso whorevor tho cm-
blom of tho cross is t'.ioro drununets pre
vails, nnd wherovor tho crcscont is tbo 0111
blom of thoroligion of tho country, thoro
tomparanco ia practiced ? floor and
whisky nro tbo rcots of many evils, but If
mors boer was drank und less whisky
thorn would bo less crimo becauso there
would bo loss drunkenness.
"Truth" wroto, wo foar, In inconsldor
ato hasto; and will, when sho has had
tlmo to wo'gb her words, regret much that
sho has said.
