Party. Adopted at the Chicago Convention, Sept'r.
2, 1869.
Vdirear, Protection and allegiance are
reciprocal duties, and every citisen
who yields obedience to the just com
mands of his Government is entitled
to the full, complete and perfect pro
tection of that government in the en
joyment of personal security, person
f liberty, and private property, and
Whereas, The traffic in intoxicating
drinks creatly impairs the personal
security and personal liberty of large
masses of citizens, and renders pri
vate property insecure, and
Whereas, The existing parties are
hopelessly unwilling to adopt an ad
equate policy on this question, there
fore we, in national convention as
sembled, as citizens of this free re
public, sharing in the duties and re
sponsibilities of its government, in
the discharge of a solemn duty we
owe to our country and oar race.
unite in the following declaratioa of
rrinciples :
. That while we acknowledge the
pure patriotism and profound states
manship of those patriots who laid
broad and deep the foundations of this
government, securing at once the
rights of the States severally and their
inseparable anion by the Federal Con
stitution, we would not merely garnish
the aepulchers of our republican fath
era, but we do hereby renew our sol
emn pledge of fealty to the imperish
able principles of civil and religions
liberty embodied in the Declaration of
American Independence and our Fed
ral Constitution.
2. 1 bat the traffic in intoxicating
beverages is a dishonor to Christian
civilization, inimical to the best inter
est of society, a political wrong of un
equaled enormdy. subversive ofthe
ordinary objects or government, not
capable of being regulated or restrain
ed by any system of license whatever,
but imperatively demanding for its
suppression effective legal prohibition
both by State and National Legibla
tion. 3. That in view r.f this, and inasmuch
as the existing political parties either
oppase or ignore this great and para
mount question, and absolutely refuse
to do anything toward the suppression
of the rum traffic, which is robbing the
nation of its brightest intellects, des
troying its material prosperity, and ra
pidly undermining its very founda
tions, we are driven by an imperative
seme of duty to sever our connection
with these political parties, and to or
panize ourselves into a National Prohi
bition Party, having for its primary
object the entire suppression of the
traffic in intoxicating drinks.
4. That while we adopt the came of
the National Prohibition Party, as ex
pressive of our primary object, and
while we denounce all repudiation of
the public d-bt, and pledge fidelity to
the principles of the Declaration of In
dependence and the Federal Constitu
tion, we deem it inexpedient to give
prominence to other political issues.
5. That a Central Executive Commit
tee of one from each State and Terri
tory and the District of Columbia, be
appointed by the Chair, whose duty it
shall be to take such action as in their
judgment will best promote the in
terests of the party.
of
Zansstille is being wakened up
on the Temperance question much
ly, and what friend of humanity is
there that is not glad of it ? We
venture that tho hearts of many,
who do not have much to say on
the question, rejoice because of it.
Some of the ladies of the City, who
have been Buffering for years thro
the Liquor Traffic, have entered
Bait against the retailers and the
owners of premises on which Liq
nor has been sold, and now there
are suits pending there wherein
thirty thousand dollars in damages
is asked for. Theflo suits, we are
told, have caused ZanesviIIe Drug
gists to give out to the world that
they will not sell alcoholic liquors
of any kind hereafter in any other
way than on the prescription of a
respectable physician, and they
have also caused many saloons to
be closed, and made landlords ex
ceedingly cautious as to who and
for what purpose they rent their
buildings. The ZanesviIIe City
Times, too, is endorsing these suits
as rieht and just, and is exerting
an influence in the cause of Temp
erance that will finally pave the
way to the organization of a Fro
hibition Party in Muskingum coun
ty. Muskingum county, as we
have often said, has within it the
elements of a strong Prohibition
organization, and all that is necess
ary, in order to make it felt, is for
some one to pursue a courso that
will draw these elements together.
Tho agitation that is new going on
: there, because of these suits, will
be the means of drawing these ele
ments together, and of finally star
ting them to work in the right di
rection. For years back, a few
hundred raeu, liquor vendors and
their friends, have ruled Musking
um county. The Democratic and
Republican parties there have been
pretty equally divided, and all the
liquor vendors have hud to do in
order to carry an election has been
to throw their votes and their in
fluence with the party that would
best subserve thmr interests. The
Democratic and Republican politi
cians have understood this, and,
consequently, both the old parties
have been trying to oui-vie eacn
other in their truckling to the
Whisky and Lager JJeer interests.
In this war temperance men and
temperance principles hare been
cmoihered, and Liquor Venders
have been allowed, in open viola
tion et all law, to degrade, beggar,
and slay the'r hundreds, yea, thou
sands. But, we opine that this
in
of
kind of work is to be short-lived,
now, in Muskingum county. Tem
perance men and Temperance prin
ciples will be brought to the front.
Liquor Tendon, and the political
puppets that curry favor with them,
will go to the wall. The cries cf
the beggared and abused wives,
widows and orphans will be heard.
Go on with the good work, say we,
and sue them as long as there is a
man brutish enough to Bell, or a
landlord bog enough to rent his
buildings lor such purposes ; but
do not stop with sucing such par
ties, but organize and wrest the
power, by the ballot, from the mis
erable trucklers that curry favor
with such parties.

RAIL ROAD.
Mr. Editor: The time has now
arrived when tho books of the East
ern Ohio K. R. Co. may be lawfu'ly
opened for subscription to its capi
tal stock, and in answer to many
inquiries made, permit me briefly
to state something of the plans of
the Company, Under tbe laws of
Ohio, the charter of the South-west
ern R. R. Co. has become defunct.
No more work can be done under
that charter. There bus been ex
pended on the line of that road, be
tween Freeiiort, in Harrison Coun
ty, and McConnelsville, (fifty-eight
miles), about four Hundred Thou
sand Dollars, i'be grading i al
most wholly completed between
Cumberland and Washing tan, a dis
tance of twenty miles, and a large
amount of work has been done all
along the whole lino, in order to
make this large amount of work
available, and 10 carry forward the
enterprise, it was necessary to or
ganize a new company, which has
been done, and it is known as the
'EaBtern Ohio R. R. Co' The ob
ject of tho Company is to complete
the work undertaken by the south
western R. R. Co., (the toad-bed of
which Company lias been secured
by purchase at a Judicial sale,) to
wit: Build a Rail-road from Don-
niaon, on the Pan Handle R. R. to
intersect with the Atlantic & Lake
Erie R. R. in Perry County; The
building of this road will, on com
pletion ot the Atlantic & Lake Erie
R. R. and a line now contemplated
between Deoni6on and New Phila
delphia, (the last mentioned line
being only twelve miles long.)
give us a throagh connection Irom
Cleveland to Pomeroy, crossing tbe
Pittsburgh, Fort Wayne and Chi
cago, Pan Handle and Central Ohio
Rail Roads, and parsing through
the Perry County Coal and Iron
fields, which are believed to bo the
richest in the United Slatea. It
will be seen at a glance thai this
would be an important and valua
ble line of road, and it is well worth
tbe efforts of all the friends of pro
gress and enterprise along tbe pro
posed line. A meeting tf the friends
this enterprise has been held, at
which every locality alon; the line
was represented by substantial,
careful, intelligent gentlemen, and
after full and careful interchange of
opinions, a plan upon which books
should be opened was adopted, to-
wit: J but the stock should become
due and payable, ten per cent, every
thirty days, as tbe work progresses
between certain points to be select
ed by the subscribers. That is,
every subscriber shall say where
bis money is to be expended. A
portion of the delegates were of
opinion that tbe stoc k should not be
payable until after the work was
done, but the majority were of tbe
opinion that contracts could not be
made on sneh subscriptions without
great sacrifice, and we concluded
that the best thing for the Company
and for the stock-holders was to
build tbe road at the least possible
outlay of money. We all know
that work can be done much cheap
er with ready pay than on ored:t,
and this is especially true in Duild
ing railroads. Very few contract
ors are able to furnish their own
means to build a railroad and wait
until the road is completed before
receiving anything, and very few
would compete for such contracts.
The delegates were satisfied that
thirtytbree per cent, would be lost
unfavorable contracts by adopt
ing the plan of "no pay until tbe
road is completed. Hence we a
dopted that plan which seems best
because we know that it will save
us money. Now, you. will perhaps
ask, "Can we succeed in building
the road ?" I answer, most em
phatically, we can, if tbe people
will do half what they ought to do
and what is their interest in every
way to do. We must all take bold ;
many hands make ligbt worn,
and if a man is too small in soul to
aid in such an enterprise, I trust he
will stand aside and at least throw
no obstacles under the wheels.
The road can be built ; look at it
one moment I From Dennisen to
Freeport is up the valley of the
Stillwater sixteen miles, with very
light grading, and throe thousand
dollars per mile will grade it com
plete ; from Froeport to Washing
ton, eighteen miles, a good portion
the work is done, and fivo thou
sand dollars per mile will finish it ;
from Washington to Cumberland,
twenty miles almost wholly graded,
one thousand dollars per mile will
complete it ; lrom Cumberland to
MtConnelsviIle, twenty miles on
which much work has been done.
eight thousand dollars per mile will
finish it ; from JUcUoncelsvilie to
the intersection in Perry county,
fifteen miles, has not been survey,
ed, but ten thousand dollars per
mile will grade it. ben the gra
ding is complete, responsible part
ies offer to put up bridges, iron
and equip the road, and take a
mortgage to secure them. The
whole line is eighty-nino miles, and
the average coat ef completing the
grade will nut exceed five thous
and, two hundred and fifty dallars
per mile. There is about twenty
live miles of this line in Morgan
county. Now, has sue the ability
te pay her portion of tbe cost of
this line 7 Xhe real estate in the
County of Morgan was appraised
for taxation at something over elev
en million of dollars, and the per
sonal estate at four and a half mill
ion of dollars. It is safe to
say that the appraisement dors not
exceed two-tbiras ci ine actual
wealth of the County, and I- may
saloly add that twenty-five million
of dollars does not exceed the val
ue of the property of Morgan coun
ty. J. wo hundred thousand dol
lars, or less than one-bundredth
part of tho value of tbe property,
will insure the road, tbe building
of which will add to the total value
of property in the County, in the
first five years, more than ten tisaes
th cost expended. AH we give is
expended among us, and is not a
loss to the people as a whole. It is
a disgrace that a County with the
wealth and intelligence of Morgan,
should not have one mile of inr prov
ed road of any kind, which fact
keeps wealth from immigrating.
and in truth drives it from our very
imdat. Then let us, in this enter
prise, all lend a helping hand, and
our efforts will be crowned with
success, and we will leave an inher
itance to the succeeding genera
tion more valuable than broad a
cres and well-filled coffers.
Respectfullr,
AN INCORPORATOR.
McConnelsville, May 16, 1871.
For the Independent.
Mr. Editor : The McConnels
ville Herald, the degenerate son of
a Neble Sire, tbe "Morgan County
Herald," exposed its cloven foot
last Friday ; and, now that this
whisky - sympathizing, pretended
organ of the Republican party, has
given its patrons a heavy dose of
"whisky straight," without water,
tansy, or sugar, I propose to give
'cm a little advice. Sweeten the
whisky a little in your next issue,
Mr. Herald, for some folks can't
bear tho critter clear. It won't be
long, howsomever, afore they'll
take to it like old sailors if you
keep on at present rates. But don't
forget the best customers at a Bar
bave a groat dread at being called
whisky men, cause they make the
business kind a respectable by pa
tronizing the place. Quit that all
fired talk of your'n about "slnng
whanger preachers," or you'll not
have nary a preacher to preach
your funeral sarmon, causiwhy,
they've nearly all left you already.
Elders, Pastors, and Class Leaders,
and Superintendants of Sunday
Scnools, too, trigrowen beautifully
lesser, all the time, in your party,
and, now, it is my prognosticating
prophecy, Mr. Herald, in lesser nor
a year they'll be scarce in your
rarrks. It don't pay you a bit nei
ther, Mr. Herald, to say too much
about them old, defunct laws of
Cornecticut, cause Thomas Paine,
Esquiro, & Co., has worn such sub
jects kinder thread-bate. Poop I e
is kind a tired being frightened
from moral reforms by the digging
up ef iilue Laws. You d bettor try
a little blue blszus once, and see how
that suits for a change.
Look afore you leap and spit on
your bands b6foro you commence
to climb the rope, cause if you ever
start down the rope on a double
geared streak a lightning, your
bands will get so hot you 11 let go
and come down krrflnmix and be
consigned to the Bottomless Pit.
the Beer Kave. Don t say any
more nor yon cr.n help about them
"street brawlers" neither, for when
you try to that them up by calling
tbera "6treet brawlers they are
sure to recollect what you said a-
bout the preachers beug "slang
whangers," and it don't hurt ab;t
If you manage tbe thing
judieiously, Mr. Herald, you can
bave all your subscribers cursing
preachers and voting open whisky
shops in less than a year. Give the
drunkard fits next week, and tell
your subscribers you nave just
found a new way to abato tbe evil,
to-wit : " Punish the men vrht ha
bitually use intoxicating liquors as
a beverage." Tbii pleases some
temperance men, and drunkards
don't have many friends, nor do
they defend themselves, .aue they
lack the cegs. Therefore there ;s
no risk in pitching into them live-
Don't say any thing im-re
about Constables in Massachu
setts truckling to tho whisky sell
ers, cause some person mipl.i men
tion the Head man on tbe Republi
can ticket last Spring and the Head
man on tbe Democratic ticket, at
the samo election, as being one and
the same man. But, above all, Mr.
Herald, don't forget to put sugar
and tansy in the whisky next
week. PROHIBITION.

the Northern Pacific Company now
has 4l3 milts of completed road, and
by September next this will be increas
ed to at least 5C0.
