Some people of good judgement ex.
pnasnfear that tlwebuiilshoion', of br.rs

else that Is Impossible." There was a
day when this was true, but that day
lias gone by. No line of business lias
saciillced so great a per cent, of Its Intel
lect and genius to the demon ol intoxi

men have been giving tip drink until now
tho number who never drew a sober
breath except from compulsion is get
ting exceedingly small. Sitico the In
troduction ot the ribbon movement they
are falling into lino rapidly upon a total

come when liquor of all kinds will bo
banished lrom all steamers, and further
on, (he tirao will como when men who
drink on shore or elsewhere, cannot hold
a license as engineer, pilotor captain.
Long before that, however, the tinio
will come when people will not travel
upon a steamer that keeps a bar on
board. Tbe action ot tbo oflicers of

imitated by all steamboat owners.
