TUUK8DAY. MAIM 2. 1874
The Franking Privilege and
the County Newspapers.
Ohio State. Journal,
wl063 editor is a Post Master
ha ancient and honorable oc
cupation, by the wa; asks for
one good reason, 'why newspa
pers should 50 free in the mails
in the cotrufies in which they
are published. We have had
tut very little to say about the
bill repealing the franking
privilege and shotting the peo
ple out ot the free delivery of
their county papers, but we
will endeavor to answers the
First, the people of the
United States own the post of
fice department, have enjoyed
the free delivery ot papers in
the counties in which they
were published for nearly a
century, and have never ashed
their servants to take that priv
ilege away from them, or even
hinted that thoy were dissatia
lied with, the arrangement thev
had established. True it mat
ters nothing to those who live
in cities and towns and have
their papers delivered by car
riers, and they say and care
nothing about the matter, but
those who live In the country
do eay and do care,
There are thousands of small
post offices in the country
where the salary of the Post
Master; (if he receives any)
and the wages ot the mail car
rier are paid by subscription
of. the people who reside in
the : vicinity of the offices.
When these people pay this
mail carrier out of their own
private pockets,- for carrying
their county papers from' the
county seat 10 their little post
office, ia lit right or jubt for the
government to interpose and
demand (that the papers shall'
not be delivered to them until
they pay it for a service it has
not in- reality performed!
Again, the people of the
country are taxed equally with
the people of the cities for the
support of the post office de
partment, but do not enjoy
equal mail facilities. While
the people-of the cities have
their mail delivered from twice
to a dozen times per day at
their dwellings, workshops or
places of business by the paid
carriers ot the department, the
country will not average three
deliveries per week to an office
maybe four or five miles trom
their residence, many paying
their own carriers lor the poor
We know it will be said in
reply that ' this is one of the
benefits which accrue .to per;
eo'nB who Jive in thickly epttled
localities, but it is the persons
Who reside in the sparely set
tied localities who are sending
lhe millions of letters which
cen tre at and make the great
mails" of the cities, aud they
pay' equal tax "Ho "make up the
general deficit.' And then the
deficit is hot' made in carrying
the1 mails, but' in the expendi
ture of millions to' build mag
nificent post offices, whose only
use is to ornament the greaj
cities. It appears to us that bo
sniall.a thing as the ree de
livery of papers in ' the 1 coun
try is a very small return 'for
these two iteiiPS of expense
which the country .u called up
on to'.: foot, especiaJly when
such delivery does not u"dd one
cent to the expenses o.16
department. -t t ; , , ,, :
Another.,, reason why v the
present lav ehoul i be repealed
is because it was passed to
punish the country papers be
cause they generally advocated
A repeal or modification ot the
franking lav, believing no
doubt correctly, that its abU6e
called lor reform. ;' -,
Still another reason is that
the postal .charge 19 extortion
ate, and does, aud was intend
ed to put an unjust and dis
proportionate burden upon the
subscribers of a particular
els ss'of" papers. .
Now, we have without
mentioning the tact that news
papers are in a sense public
servants'and carry a knowledge
of the laws and acts of pub
lie officers to citizens who.
ought to bo informed given
partial answer to the Journal's
question,' and we want to add
one thing more. The city pa
pers are trying to create the
impression that country pub
Ushers are financially interest
ed in this matter, and therefore
what we say about it is not en
tilled to consideration. Ibis
assumption is false. We do
not believe the law has made
one particle ot difference in our
receipts from subscription, the
hopes of cheap metropolitan
journals to the contrary nof.
withstanding; we believe thiB
will be the universal experi
ence of publishers, and it is
not us, but the people, who pay
the postage. It is an unjust
tax ipon them, and we have a
right to demand justice tor
them without having il insinu
ated that we are bought up by
a consideration of "five cents
a quarter postage," when every
body knows we don't pay the
postage. We were in hopes
Congress would see through
this howl get up by the city
but the vote on
the amendment to the pos
al law does not indicate that
such is the case. The cities
now have it all .their own way
one, five and tec million dol
lar post offices and free letter
deliveries, while the people ot
the country pay the bills in
fiveceut quarterly levies, and
can not enjoy the poor privil
ege ot free delivery ot their pa
pers by their own paid carriers.
Tbey must contribute their
mite to the support of city
But . we will add a lew re
marks: about tha.1 feature of the
law which repeals the franking
privilege. .We were opposed
to the abuse of the franking
privilege.' We didn't think. .it
was either decent or honorable
in Ben. Wood to frank his
millions of lottery advertise
ments all over the country, or
another member whose name
we do not now remember to
Irank his quack medicine ad
vertisements, or another to
frank the business circulars of
wholesale dealers in "Wash
ington correspondence." Such
acts were opposed to the spirit
of the law, and we believed the
letter of the law should be so
amended; but We were not fool
ish enough to want the Treas
ury, or any other department of
the government, to pay the
postal department for carrying
letters on governmet business.
That is too thin a thing to palm
off under the name ot reform
No person is benefitted by it
except the printer of official
stamps- and tin express com
panies', which no n get pay lor
carrying the heavy package of
the other departments, which
were formerly sent-wiihout ex
pense in the government maile,
the ' depprlments. finding that
they can make an apparent re
duction of expense in their re
ports, whileat Is an actual and
unnecessary increase of ex
pense to . the 'pockets of the
people. r ' t ; s f 1
f' Tfiere 'Has been' a great deal
of 'cheap talk too by the city
papers ' about the mails being
cumbered by Official reports,
seeds, etc., which Congressmen
franked to the people, thereby
increasing the cost ot trans
porting mails!' Now this 'talk
is silly. There are four postal
cars go over the M. cV C, and
almost" all other roads, each
Jayi- The government pays
thO same sum whether the ears
are ull or empty. " This diatri
bution iTf seeds and documents
by ihegorfirnment mHy or may
not be bei eiScial to the people,
but their transportation in the
mails costs absolutely nothing.
But this article is already too
lon. ,The old, postal ,'aw wa
oljecCionable in tume respects;
the freeeiit law is a pretence
and a Iraud in almost every re
spect. The late votes on the
subject show's that Congress is
aware 01 mis met, uuv uu t

the moral courage to do right.
No man who Is engaged in
an honext, respectable busi
ness will have it injured by
the prayers of women. If wo
men should congregate in front
of one of our dry goods stores,
the mill, the butcher's the
shoemaker's or the- harness
maker's, and pray from day
light till dark, men would
come and go and transact their
business the same as though
they were not there, and the
dealer or manufacturer, as the
case might be, would not be
averse to their prayers, and
would not be injured in per
son or property. If the pray
ers. affect the dealers in liquor
differently it is because men
know they commit an . offense
atcainst puhlio morals and
against the welfare of them
selvea and tamilies when they
indulge in intoxicating drink,
and they do not want the good
women of their acquaintance
to witness their crime. For in
stance, if the ladles would only
pray with Bo wen tbey could
no doubt break down his . gin
mill, while, we presume, it
would not interfere with the
flow of subscribers to the
strictly religious department of
his highly diversified business,
conducted under the name of
The Morrow Injunction.
JudgeSmith, of Warren coun
ty, has dissolved an order re
straining the ladies ot the town
ot Morrow from praying in
front of saloons, and refused
the injunction on the gtound
that the law would not author
ize an injunction upon the plea
set forth in the plaintiff's pe
tition, even if the petition
were true. Second, that the
petition was false, that the pe
titioner was engaged in busi
ness in violation of law, and
could have no protection .of
law in: its violation; that his
business was a nuisance, so de.
scribed by the statute; and the
people had the right to abate
it in any manner tbey should
chooBe, except by a breach of
the peace. The case was dis
missed at the costs of the
plaintiff, a saloon keeper nam

cision was pronounced, had
