J)enr Sir nutl Friend
I read with profound Interest this
volttum neeount In the Interior Jour
tiul (his week ot the "Enthusiastic
Meeting o Temperunec Workers'' in
your city Inst Sabbath evening.
J'nssing by thu many excellent things
ret forth therein to bold the fort in

uy that after all is said ami done,
jt remain for the totem to "sec to
it that olllcials are eleeted who are
jdedged to enforce the laws" us one

might also say ,tliat since blind tig
ers exist nil over the county, us lie
is ipiolcd ns Haying, i( pretty good
tray of diminishing their number and
jiflitity would be for voters to pledge
themselves not to vote nniii for tlie
present ollicerx, If these violatunt
jire not made to ccnc their tralllc.
What do ton think of that aller
liutivnf I Iwhcte that if the male
portion of your big muss meeting on
Sunday night last or at u future
ii.eeling would sign such a pledge and
publish it in the paper, addressed to
nil ulllcers concerned, it would hate
ji salutary effect. In ndililion, it
would lw exceedingly wise and high
ly essentml for all good citizens to
Titte to ilo jury srrticc without

Mild nfticcr endeavorcil to bring vio
