afe'w intelHt;nnt prnhibltiontsts deploro
the attemnt now boing mada in sevpral
dtatPH to inonrporato prohibitory legisla
tion into tho constituMon.
Afoit jnrists nprpe that the constitution
of the state shnuld be siinoly a bill of
rightfl and a body of general rules in no
cordance with wbioh the logisMion of
the state muat be framcd. Specific leis
lation in the organic law thoy rpfjard as a
rrreat mintake. ThiH ourrht to be left to
the lpeislatnre. The attpmpt to hamper
tho pxprpraion of the popnlar will by con
otitutional provision, and to tiiko away
from suceeedinr; eenerationn the ritjht to
dpoide ai to how they snall ordfir thPir
livep, they considfir both unwio and
nucatorv. a matlor of faot, the thing
oannot be dono. No matter what is in
the constitntion, the ppople will decide
or thpmfplves, vpar by vr ar, what the
mannpr of thpir lifo shall bp. Epeoially
is it true of all qneations relating to mor
als, that one genpration cannot pettle thera
for 8nother. The opinions of mon re
Rpecting mattpra of cnndnct are con
tinnally ohancring, and thpse ohanges of
opinion should bo freo tn fmd expression
in tbe statutes. The pnblio sentiroent of
thia timo reprnbates some aots that were
tolorntpd in former tiraes, and recent laws
forbidding thpse acts rpgiiter the im
provpd mnralitv. The publio ppntiment
of thia time toleratea ponoe acts that were
reprobatpd in formpr times ; and the laws
forbiddtng these aots are, or oiiRht to be,
reppalpd. The laws undpr whioh we live
sbonld fairly rppreaent the moral convio
tions of the people whn live undpr thpm ;
if tbe laws embody a hieher rnnrality than
that whioh the poople reoognizs as bind
ing, they becomeimperative, and the fail
nre to enforoe them induces a disrpgard
for all laws ; if they embody a moral rule
lower than that by which the people live,
they must have a deraoralizinp; influence.
In a government of the people, the people
mnat be left free to Rovern themBPlveH ;
and the attempt to tie thera up, or hedge
them abont, by conatitntional provisions,
so that they cannot order the common
affairs of their livea in accordance with
their present ideas of right and wrong, is
Besides, theae coustitutional ampnd
ments are of no effect whateveruntil laws
are made by the lecialaturo embodyinpr
their provisions. Aftertho constitutional
amendment prohibitine the manufacture
and sale of alcoholic liqnor is adopted by
the people, no man can be punished or
proseouted for the manufacture or sale of
alcoholic liquor until the legialature has
paaaed a prohibitory law to corresnond
with the constitutional amendment. Rum
will be just as free after the paasage
of the amendment as it was before, unlcss
the legislaturn pleases to enact a prohibi
tory law. This is a point concerning
which there seoms to be not a little mis
apprehension. Those who have had op
portunities of getting at the popular ideas
report that there are multitudes of zealous
prohibitionista of those reputed to be
intelligent whoimagine that thepassafre
of an amendment will settle the whole
matter forever, taking it wholly out of the
bands of the legialature, and who express
great aatonishment, and even incredulity,
when informed that this is not the case.
Certainly they oupht to act intelligently
in this matter. If they propose to vote
for an amendment with auch expectations,
it is time that their ininds were disabused.
Conatitntional amendments have no force
whatever until laws are enacted enforcing
them. Men are never prosecuted in the
pollce courts for violating tho constitu'
tion. Unless there is some Btatute of the
state or some ordinance of the city under
which they can be arraigned, thoy cannot
If, therefore, the lecrislaturo should en
act a prohibitory amendment, then prohi-
Dition wouiu De m lorce, not otuerwiso.
It is probable that a legialature chosen at
the same election at which the amend
ment was paased would agreo to enact a
prohibitory law. But the next legiala
ture would have power to repeal this law,
or, leaving the law on tho statute books,
frame auch methoda of procedure under
it that )t ahould be practically inopera
tivo. 'And the next legialature, or some
future legislature, would be very likoly to
do some such thing as this unless the
publio eentitnent of the state were con
stantly edncated to demand prohibition,
and unleas the voters of the stato were
careful every year to return men to the
legialature who thoroughly believed in
prohibition. Whatever the constitution
may say, therefore, all the power re
mains in the legislature. The legisla
ture may neglect or refuse to pass a law
enforcing the amendment ; or, if such a
law be paaaed, any future legislature may
lepeal it, and refuse to pass another, or
may tabe all the life out of it by crip
pling amendments. Anxious pollticians
and sanguine reformers talk of taking
the question out of politics by means of
a constitutional amendment. It cannot
be taken out of politics. It rernains and
must remain, in the hands of the people
and of their representatives in the legis
lature. "But the amendment itsolf provides,"
it is sometimes said, "that the legislature
ihall make a law enforoing it." And there
are those who aotuallv put their tnist in
this word " shall " I But who will cowpel
the legialators to obey this coramand, or
punish them for dlsobeying it? How
caay it would be for them to disagree ns
to the fonn of tho law, and then to f ail of
onacting any lawl Tho legialaturo may
bo reetrained by a prohibition of the con
st.ltutioii from making a law in conflict
with that prohibition ; but no nfiirmatlvo
proviaion of tho constitution will ever
coerco any legialature into tho enaotmcnt
of a law which tho majority of its mem
bors diaapprove. The powor that moves
tho legislature to enact laws is not the
mandates of tho couBtitution, but tho will
of tho people.
It is true, then, that a prohibitory
amendment tnight make it difiioult or im
possiblo for the logialaturo to paas any
other kind of law except a prohibitory
law. Very likely a tax law, or a high
Hcense law, or a local orHion law would bo
pronounced unconatitutlonal by thecourts
after auch an amendment was passed. We
should bo Bhut up to prohibition or noth
ing. There is reason to foar that, in
niany cases, we should aoon have nothing.
If the publio aentiment proved to bo too
weak to enforce prohibition, the only
alternate would bo free rum. When the
present con8litution of Ohio was adopted,
more than thirty years apo, a clauso for
bldding tho legislature to license tho sale
of intoxicating liquors was inserted. This
was inteuded as a temperance measure ;
the result has been that tbe eale of liquor
in the state of Ohio has been practically
unrestratned for thirty years. Everybody
sells liquor who chooses, without let
or hindranco; aud there are more saloons
in proportion to the population in the
chief cities of Ohio than in any other
citifs of the United State".
The only state in the Union ln which
prohibition has been at all snccessful is
the state of Maine; and in Maine there
has been no constitutional provision re
apeoting tho sale of liquor until within
the present year. Where the publio sen
timent of thn state is strong enough to en
force prohibition, prohibition can be se
cured by means of a law without any
constitutional provision ; and where the
public aentiment of the stato is not strong
enough Bteadijy and perststpntly to en
force prohihition a prohibitory amend
ment will result in free rum. Chrutian
Efrects of Aleohol on tho Skln.
" Seeing is believing," is a common
proverb, and without doubt we are all of
us moreeasily lnllupncpd by what we can
aee ior ourseives tnau oy wnat we are
obliged to accept on authorify. That al
eohol produces great alterations in many
parts ot the body is beyoud question.
Many of these are palpable enough to the
medical man in the post-mortem roora
but many others leave no permaneut al
teration which cau be olearly rncoenized
after death. Even the coarse alterations
ot the tissues are never sepn by the gen
eral public. The cirrhotic liver, the eran
ular kidnev, the tatty heart, the degener-
ated artenes, are to them simply namps
without the defimte meanmg which sielit
confers. tiut, whue tne mterior of the
body is, as it were, a foreign and un
visited land, ita exterior resembles rather
one s native country. I he changes which
aleohol raav produce in the skin are plain
and palpable. An intelligent guide may
be required to explain that which is seen,
but everyone can see for bitnaelf who is
willing to look. Aleohol haa a great ef
fect on the skin, as all know who have ob
served tho flushing and swelling of the
surface ot the body which it produces
Ihis temporary Hushincr, Irenoently re-
peated, leads to more or le-8 dilation and
congestion ot a more permanent nature,
espeoially in the expoapd parts of the
body, such as the face and those parts in
which the blood-vessels endure the great-
est 8train, namely, the lega, m which the
veins are stretohed and rendered vancose,

It speaks well for Ireland that healthy
views on the tpmperance quastion are
provainng. it Komaninm and mteraper
ance were not masters of Ireland, neace,
pienty and prospe'-itv would reiin m the
" gem of the sea." Rocently five towns
were exempted from the law reqnirinrj
Deer ahops to be closed on Sunday. It
wss said that the Deonlo would not suS'
tain so severe a law, and in order to get
at tne sense of the mhabitants, a volun
tary census was taken with the results
showing a vast preponderance of opinion
in lavor ot makincr tbe measure perma'
nent and extending itB operation to the
country at large. The following ques'
tion was put to the housebolders and
heads of f arailies : " Ara vou in favor of
the entire closing of Dnblio houses, beer
shops. taverns, and spmt grocers on sun
days?" and the answprowere: In Dub-
lin Yes, 31 000; no, 8,117; majority in
tavor nt Sumtav eloaing, 'IbU. In IJel
fast Yes, 23.958; no, 2.012; majority,

Lottlo's Charity Ball.
" My sister Ethel's golncr to the charity
ball, and oh I she's got just thn beauti-
fulst drps vou ever saw," said Tilho
Clark to Lottie Elder, as they played to
getbpr ono afternoon.
" What s a ohanty ball (" sskedLittie.
"Why, don't you knowl" answerpd
Tillie, with the contempt of puperior wis-
dom whioh one Fmall girl often aasumes
over another. " Avhy, lt's a something to
help poor people, and lota of folks are go
ing, and they'll dance and have splendid
music. TurnerN hall is all fixed up with
evergreons, and Ethel says looks so pretty."
" And will the poor people be there to
see the pretty things and hpljr the muaic ?"
nqutred Lottie, with intprest.
" Why, no, said l lllie. " I hey don't
want poor folks there; they wouldn't
have anv nico clothes to come in, you
know. It is to get monoy somehow to
help I don't know how. Etbel and

" Well, if I w.is poor folks," said Lottie,
deoidedly. " I'd like to go and see the hall
and hear the mnsio."
" But then tho money would do you more
good," said Tillie, who wbs evidently
much iurtner anvanced in worldly wiS'
dom than little Lottie.
" Yes," said Lottie, slowly, and then
the two children went on with their play.

very bright ldea began to form itself in
her busy little brain.

spot on her cheeks; " if raothpr '11 let me,

aiao camo to help. Whether it was

happy one that gathered in Mrs. Elder'a
nretty parlors on the appointed afternoon
There were gay eames out of doors, but
Jamie, tho lame boy. oould not run about,
so Mrs. Elder anpplied him with pioture
booka, and Lottie brought her chonshed
stereosoope with its fine viewB, and after
pwhile they had more quiet plays m which
jamie joined heartily.
Ihen there were simplp. hut abundant
refreshm"nts for all, and Eflie Neal whia'
pered to Mattie Wilson tn know what thn
lemonade was " 'Causo I've never 'asted
anythmg so nice before." Aunt Bettie
played and aang in her very beat stvle
and Miss Sarah closed her evs and lav
back in tho easy ohair Mrs. Elder hsd
espeoially chosen for her, and felt
rested. And the shy little Wilson glrls
stood by the piano, and ventured to tell
MisB Bottio they "hadn't heard any
mnsio Bince mothnr died." Nellio Weaver
sat down on the floor by tho flower-stand
and feasted her eyes, aud nose too, on tbe
lovely, fragrant plants. and she and her
brother were overjoyed at the jjiffc of
flowerto take home. And Lottie? Sho
flitted here and there, and everywhere,
trymg to make every one of her guesta
havo a happy time, her own dimpled faco
agiow with hanpiness.
" It was such a nice party," said Tillie,
a day or two af terwards ; " ever so much
better tban the big charity ball, I know ;
for Ethel's been so cross ever since. She
spnilt her dress, and cousin Mollie is
siok wlth tho cold eho oaught."
I liked it," said Lottie simply, " but
