THE VlPflOii RtCORQ.
TIIUIiSDAY, FfcD. 20, 1874
A Good Move.
Hon. Milt McCoy, Represen
(ative from Ross county, on
petition of Ins constituents, bus
introduced a bill to authorize
tbe Slate to appoint a coram u
lion to compile a set of school
bonks for use in ll.e schools of
the State, the State to own the
copyiijiht, and leavo the print
ing open to all the publishers
of the State. It is believed
this will open the matter of
furnishing school books to a
competition which will enable
the people to get them at a
fair price. We have frequently
called attention to the burdens
forced upon the people by the
school book monopoly. Firms
engaged in this business bare
their books, which are mer6
compilations, copyrighted, and
thus enjoy the exclusive man
ufacture and tale of that work,
which, if they are eo lucky as
to once get them adopted by
School Boards, they sell at
euch a piice as drives many
children from the schools and
thus cripples tlieir usefulness.
They do not compote with
each other, but like the express
companies, divide the country
off into districts and agree not
to interfero with each other in
plundering in their respective
As a sample of the profit these
men make, we sent an accurate de
scription of one of the books used
in our public schools to one of
the largest publishing houses of
Cincinnati and asked their price
to print 10,000 copies. Their
price was fractiou less tlum 9
cents each for that number, Now,
it is well known that a greater
camber could be printed for a
less average price per copy. Over
100,000 copies of the book re
ferred to bad been printed and
told for which tbe purchasers
paid seventy-five cents per
copijt or over e'.ght times tbe or
iginal cost, on an estimate for
10,000 copies. When we con
sider the. greater number actually
printed we are safe in saying
that the retail price is at least ten
times the first cost of the book.
This is upon its very face the
meanest monopoly in the world,
shuts thousands of children out
of our free schools, is a heavy tax
on all classes of people, and we
hope Mr. McCoy's bill may pass
and stop the swindle.
It is proper to add that it is
tbe publisher of tbe book that is
doing the stealing, and he is so
grasping in his demands that
we are satisfied from frequent in
quiry that the retailer jdoes not
get even a fair profit tor hand-
ling the books. The publisher
,sksBO much for them -that the
retailer is actually ashamed Co
add a fair percentage for hand
ling them. . -1 I
From the Marietta Register.]
Tub Mariettta' Register in
commenting upon an article in
the Record expressing the wish
that each county in the State
ryere blessed with a Uojie for
DebMtute Children, like that of
' WashiiTg'on county, expmses
the belief that counties of. tbe
class of Tjnton have- not
enongh. wealth to afford such an
institution.' The Roister un

Btalked through our streets
with giant-like terror to the ar

midst of his midnight revelry
judgment overtakes him, a
mysterious ' handwriting ap

songs, the olive" branch of
peace, the monster smitten
heaves a sigh, falls a victim,
his 'head a trophy to be'gi'b-

gaze as a fearlul and terrible

Sckidnkr's for March is out,
and full of good 'things as it
always is. Under the manage
ment of Dr. Holland (Timothy
Titeomli), Scribner's has be
come our favorite of all Amer
ican magazines. On the first
page this week we publish an
able, thoughtful article on
"The Delusionsof pnnk,Bfrom
the pen of tbe editor, which is
worthy of being read and re
read by all, whether the mod
erate drinker, or the person la
boring uuder the "delusion"
that ho is a moderate drinker.
The article is e titled to more
consideration from the fad
that Dr Holland has always
been a zealous, practical work
er in the cause of temperance,
and one of the main advocates
of the theory ot displacing in
temperance by the . use of
wine, until he made atrip to
tbe wine countries of Europe,
hnd by observation was con
vinced, against his will, that
his theory was false. Such
were the impressions left upon
'o.i8 mind by his observations,
that he boldly acknowledged
that he had been advocating
an error; and that of the whis
ky drunkenness of America
and tbe wine drunkenness of
Europe, the latter did infinite
ly the most harm. We give
Dr. Holland's article entire be
cause it contains truths which
are acknowledged by all, until
the "delusion" is personally
applied, on the one hand; while
on the other hand it is opposed
to the commonly accepted the
ory on moderate indulgence.
Here is what Dio Lewis says
of prohibitory legislation. Its
truth is attested by the history
ol our own and thousands of
towns in Ohio. When this
community will content to sit
down and wait for the laws to
enforce themselves there will
be an instant revival of the
whisky business. There must
be an active public sentiment
to sustain and enforce tbe laws
or they are worje than useless
The women are the greatest
sufferers by reason of intern
perance, and they have shown
themselves the greatest power
in creating a public sentiment
to crush the evil. Their final
permanent success depends on
their persistence. But here is
what Dr. Lewis says of the
'Prohibitory laws, were the
greatest obstacle that the tem
perance reform had to over
come, lie eulogized the old
Washingtonian movement, but
said that -when people went
into making laws on the ques
tion, it fpjled.. Everybody
stuck his hands into bis pock
ets and inquired, "Why don't
thy enforce the laws? (The
