VOICE AS TO WHETHER IN

TAILED IN MAYSVILLE?
The principle of local self-government
is that any political unit
shall make and enforce its own
laws in all matters that affect its
own people exclusively, so long
as its laws do not contravene the
laws of any larger political unit of
which it is a part; that is the
municipal laws, regulations and
ordinances may not contravene
county laws, county laws may not
contravene State laws, and Statr
Jaws may not contravene National

enues, conducts her schools, man
ages any of my internal affairs, so
long as Oklalrctna does nothing
and permits poniihs that robs her
people of ny of tW rights am'
benefits guaranteed by the Fedenii
It is of no concern to ti City
of Ilopkinsvillo how the -City of
Slielbyville lights and paves her
streets, what franchises she
grants or how she conducts what
ever of her business concerns Shel
byvillc and her people alone. But
should an epidemic of small-pox
break out in. Shelbyville it is the
privilege of Ilopkinsville to call
upon the State to compel Shelby
ville to put a strict quarantine
around herself so that no germs of
small-pox may escape to endanger
the people of Ilopkinsville
Each county has the right with
in the limits prescribed by the
State Constitution to manage its
own schools keep up its own roads
and administer its own affairs, so
long as it does nothing prejudicial
to the life, safety, liberty, prop
erty and general well-being of its
So each precinct in each county,
whether sparsely settled or thickly
settled forming villages, towns or
cities, has the right to make and
enforce regulations THAT AF
FECT ONLY THOSE RESIDENT
WITHIN ITS BOUNDARIES.
How Doe3 This Apply To Mays

Now, the sale of the poisonous
drug, alcohol, as a coverage, is
just a case in point. Maysville and
every other municipality permit-,
ting the sale of alcoholic bever
ages provides against the danger
arising tnereirom y Keeping a
police force for the protection o
the life, safety and good orderof
her people. But the jurisdiction
of these officers of iho municipal
corporation of Maysville, ends
.vitli the geographic limits of the
corporation- Not so the dangers
created by the poisonous drug,
rhey extend to the extreme limit
of Mason county and far beyond.
Lives have been destroyed on
our highways by men under the
nfluence of Maysville intoxicants,
Women have been outraged and
murdered in farm houses by men
under the influence of Maysville
liquor ; other women have escaped

laily and hourly fearful because
of liquor bought in Maysvillo not
to speak of the revulsion in the
present state of domestic service
or having to servo meals to farm
hands in various stages of intoxi

a Saturday night but every road
leading from Maysvillo is made
dangerous by Maysvillo liquor.

The loss of time and the damage

Because the retailing of liquor
.in Maysville. an evil the effect
of which Maysville cannot keep
within her own corporate limits,
because the evils and the danger s
to the country are as great und
greater than they are to the city,
the rural part of tho county has
a right to a voice, in protecting
tho lives, safety, business and
morals of tho county as a whole
from tho liquor evil.
The Constitution of Kentucky
recognizes this principle in that
it provides that the county may
by act of the General Assembly
be made the unit in matters per
turning to the sale of intoxicants;
and the General Assembly recog
nizes the soundness of the princi
ple and the need for its application
when it passed the County Unit
Law, which has been declared by
tho Court of Appeals to embody
the purpose and intent of the Con
The only ujny for Maysville to
retail liquor without loss and
danger to the country is to pro
