Judge Hughes wrung himself In on
the temperanoe meeting, on Friday
night last, his name not being on the
program, to make a speech abusing the
Dkmourat, characterising it as "a
dirty sheet," and using other abusive
and ungentlemanly language. We
only notice this matter now to say
that the friends of local option cannot
draw attention from the Issue by a
personal fight on the editor of the
Uemoohat as we do not propose to
further notice these personal attacks
at present. It Is sufficient to say that
we can bide our time and in due sea
son will no doubt have an opportunity
to retaliate. If this time should come
and the Judge should feel a little sheol
under his shirt, he can recolleot that
"he sowed to the winds, but reaped
from the whirlwinds."

Th editor of the Democrat has
asked the opinion of a competent legal
adviser a to the legality of the mer
chant license nnder which two gal
lon bouses are now running In the city.
II learned that these men took out
merchant license, at the proper time
In 18811, as required by law, and that
this give them anthorlty to sell liquors
in quantities of not less than one gal
lon for one year from Its date, and
that the license referred to baa not
yet expired. He said that any law of
the legislature passed subsequent to
the date of the Issue of this license.
would not affeot the authority given
In th license to tell as therein pro
vided until the license expired. In
proof of this he referred to a decision
in the toth Missouri Reports, In the
case of the State vs. Andrews, from
Polk county. In 1661 the law allowed
a merchant to sell liquor by the quart
nnder bis license. In 1655 the law was
amended so as to make the lowest
amount a merchant could sell under
his license one gallon. Andrews had a
license to sell by the quart, Issued be
fore the law was amended, and con
tinued to aell In that quantity after the
new law came In force. He was In
dicted for the same, and the case In
this way reached the supreme court
That body decided that he had a right
to sell as bia license provided, until It
expired. The two houses in Richmond
are analogous cases, but if those who
are throwing mnd in this matter, think
differently ail they have to dots to
make the proper affidavit and have the
proprietors arrested. The matter can
be easily settled in that way.

We hear every man woman and
child say that Richmond Is the town
where to buy Goods cheap. It cannot
be beat by auy other town, but the
most attractive place in Richmond is
TUB OKIKKTAL BAZAAR,
or the 6 aud 10 cents store, where No
tions, Tinware, Glassware, and Queens-
ware are bought at from 80 to 70 per
cent less than in any other store in
auy other store In northwest Missouri.
Think how much money you saved last
year by patronizing this store and go
and do likewise this year. 19.
