THE DEMOCRACY OF OHIO
ON THE LIQUOR TRAFFIC.
The SlcConnelsvillc Herald, the organ
of both the Whisky Rings of Morgan
County, throws out an insinuation that
our course in placing the Prohibition
Coiraty Ticket at the head of the local
page of the Conservative, while we keep
the-Democratic State Ticket standing
at the head of the second page, is in
consistent. For the benefit of the
ITera?J, and all that are in deep trou
.ble relative to this matter, we shall
call their attention to the record of
the Ohio Democracy on the Liquor
Traffic, and 6how thai our course is en
tirely consistent with that record.
The record of the Democracy of Ohio,
as shown by the official acts of the par
ty in drafting the present Constitution
of Ohio and submitting it to the peo
ple, and also shown by its legislation
when it had control of the State Legis
lature, is that of the Temperance party
of the i-tate. It has enacted all the
prohibitory and regulating laws that
are existing in the State ; and its ac
tion, whenever it has considered the
Liquor Traffic question, has always ten
ded toward Prohibition.
The Convention that framed the
present Constitution of Ohio, and sub
mitted the clause that : "No license
to traffic intoxicating liquors shall
hereafter be granted in this State, but
the General Assembly may, by law,
provide against evils resulting there
from," was largely Democratic, and was
presided over by William Medill, who
was afterward elected Governor of
O. by the Democracy. Col. Wk. Haw
kink, now deceased, but always one of
the etauncheit Democrats in this part
of Ohio, was Morgan County's repre
eentative in this Convention.
The present existing State Liquor
Laws, which prohibits the selling of
intoxicating liquors to be drank in,
upon or about the premises where sold;
which prohibits the selling to minors,
to persons intoxicated, and those in
the Labit of getting intoxicated, &c,
was enacted, in 1854, by a Democratic
Legisla ture, that elected George E.
Tugh Uniied States Senator.
The present existing Municipal Code,
thft was eaacted one year ago last
Spring, and which confers the power
on Incorporated Villages to regulate
apd prohibit the sale of Ale, .Beer, &c,
was enacted by the Democratic Legis
lature that elected Allen G. Thurman
United States Senator.
The action of the Constitutional
'Convention and these two Democratic
Legislatures comprises almost the
whoJa of the existing State laws, which
regulate and prohibit the sale of intoxi
cating liquors in Ohio. We ask, now,
if the Conservative, as a Democratic or
gan, show3 any inconsistency in advo
cating the election of a County Ticket
that has pledged itself to use its influ
ence toward the execution, in the let
ter and spirit, of the State and Aiunic
pal Liquor Laws? These laws were
made by Democrats, and it certainly
cannot be An ti-Democratic to have
For the Conservative.
A Labor-Saving Machine.
A few days ago we saw m opera
tion, at the barn of Wm. II. Cool, in
Bristol township, one of tho labor
saving machines of the present age.
It is known as tho Farmers Fork
and Haycarrier, and we think it
weIl-n.imod. This fork lilted from
the wagon and deposited in the
mow, in a fraction over six minutes,
a load of hay weighing at least fif
teen hundred pounds, and that with
little labor or effort of those work
ing it. It is simple in construction
not liable to get out of repair, can
easily bo managed by men or boys,
and will deposit thb hay in the ex
treme parts of the mow. We would
advise our farmer friends to call
and examine the workings of this
machine, and they will bo convinc
ed of its utility and valao to them.
One of these machines would soon
pay its cost in the saving of tice,
besidos saving much hard labor.
It can easily bo arranged to lift the
hay out of the mow and load it up
on a wjion. ' A.
As per announcement, Hev. Ca
thek, of the McConnelsvilIe Baptist
Church, delivcrod a Sermon, on last(
Sabbath morning, on the Temper
anco question. lie, also, continued
the subject cn the evening of the
same day ; and promised to coutin-
uc, at intervals, ur til the people are
awakened to a proper appreciation
of the question. lie gave, in his
morning discourse, the following
statistics, which we deem important
to bo known to every cit!zen :
THE MANUFACTURE AND SALE OF INTOXICATING
DRINKS IN THE UNITED
The whis"ky distillers of the conn
try have invested in their business,
according to recent statement made
by themselves, in a public conven
tion, "the working capital of $100,
000,000." This is greater than the
capital invested in manufactures in
Philadelphia, the second manufac
turing city in the worlJ.
Whisky distilled in the
United States in
1867, 100,000,000 gals.
Ale, Beer, Porter, man-
ufactnred in the U.
States, 186,000,000 gals.
Wines and Brandies
manufactured in the
TJ. States, 90,000,000 gals.
Imported Wines and
Liquors from 23 to 50,000,000 "
A total of over 400,000,000 "
. Supposing 4,000,000 drinkers, 100
galons each yearly, at a total whole
sale cost of S609.27S.050. This is
sold to the consumer for 51.4S3.
491.865, leaving a profit to the re
tailers of 874.213,815. The num
ber of licensed places lor selhrsr li
quor in the United States, is ISO,'.
000 ; wholesale, 9,821 ; retail, 120-,
000. These retail establishments,
allowing 25 feet front to each,
would make a contmnons lino from
Boston, by way of New York, Phil
adelphia, "Washington, to Richmond,
Virginia over four hundred miles
or, allowing for tho usual inter
vals of streets, they would reach
well nigh to Charleston, South Car
olina. The average profit of each
retail establishment, 7,300.
This cost to tho consumer, 1,
4S3,491,865, is $43 for every man,
woman and child in the country ;
and supposing one-ten Ih of tho pop
ulation to be - drinkers, it is 430 to
each. It is equal to tho construct
ing and eqmping of all the Bail
roads in the United States, exclud
ing ihose of the single Stale of
Pennsylvania. It would more than
pay the whole of the National debt
in two years ; more than ten times
the value of all the church proper
ly in tho United States, according
to the census of I860 ; about sixty
twe times as much as that npent for
both educational and religious pur
poses during the same period.
This fifteen hundred millions paid
for liqnor would endow, annually, a
University in ejich of the two thou
sand five hundred counties of the
States and Territories with S600,
The retail liquor sales of Oh'o is
above the average. ' It is 151,734,
875, at 3,000,000 population, which
is too large it would be over fifty
dollars a piec; the total value of
her Railroads and equipments,
149,540,95 0. Average of nearly
two millions to each of the eighty
eight counties ; Pennsvlvania near
ly two and a half millions to each
of her sixty-five counties, and New
York over 4,110,000 to each of her
sixty counties. Cincinnati, as a ci
ty, is prominent its annual liquor
bill is 44,720,437, which would give
more than half a .million to each
There are more than 500,000 pern
sons engaged in the sale and man
ufacture of this liquorfour times
as many as all the ministers and
school teachers of the United States.
There is a liquor establishment for
every two hundred and 6ixty of the
population, and ono for every 53
There is an enormous amount of
intoxicating drinks, 400,000,000,
or one hundred gallons a piece for
4,000,000 drinkers ; and this in
cludes " only that reported to the
Government Collectors. A great
deal of domestic wino would not bo
This is an enormous cost, nearly
1,500.000,000 or nearly 400 a
pieco to the 4,000,00 J of drinkers.
This is tho amount deduced from
the receipts of the Internal Reven
ue. Whether all manufactured was
given in, and all retailed reported
or not, I leave to each one to de
termine in his own mind.
But the cost of this liquor bill is
not yet made up. The 500,000 per
sons employed in manufacturing
and selling this liquor, if engaged
in some useful employment, at a
dollar a day, for throo hundred
days of tho year, would give 150,
000,000. The time lost from work,
by tlit 4,000,000 drinkers, we may
suppose to be one eighth of their
lime, equal to 500,000 per day, or
for three hundred days, or one
year. 150,000,000 more. Thus tho
trme lost from useful labor in mak
ing, selling, and drinking liquor, is
a 1.000,000 of the population, at a
dollar a day, gives an additional
loss of ?300,000,000. Nor is this yet
the whole cost of liquor to the coun
try. It is the use of these intoxica
ting drinks that fills the jails, pris
ons, work-houses, poor houses or
infirmaries, and asylums of the
land. From -one-half to three
fourths of all tha crimes, seven
eighths of all the commitments,
nearly all the pauperism, and a
large portion of the" insanity of the
country is tracible directly and in
directly to tho influence of liquor.
Thus a large portion of the costs
of all courts of justice, nearly the
whole C03t of tho police force, and
of pauperism, and a large pare of
the coat of all prisons and asylums,
is in consequeuce of this prevalence
of strong drinks.
Statistics show that sixty thons
and lives are annually destroyed by
intemperanco iu the United States:
one hundred thousand men and wo
men sent to prison in consequence
of strong drink ; two hundred thou
sand children are sent to the poor
house ; 'three hundred murders arc
committed ; four hundred suicides ;
two hundred thousand orphans are
bequeathed to public and private
Tho whole number of paupers ac
tually assisted, and arrested on sus
picion of crime, is much larger.. In
18G3, the whole number "of paupers
actually relieved in the State of N.
York was 261,252. In an examina
tion mado into tli3 history of thcao
paupers, by a competent commit
tee, seven-eighths were reduced to
this low condition through intemp
erance. Of 65.000 commitments
made, the jail officers reported seventh-eighths
to bo due to strong
drinks. In the samo year there
were, in New York and Brooklyn,
68,783 arrests by tho police , and in
ThMadelphia, 44,163. The records
of the Courts and Aldermen show
that these arrests, three-fourths of
them, were cases of disorder, aris-l
mg solely from the use of intoxica
ting liquors. .
The cost cf all this is estimated
to be 200,000,000 annually. This
item, in the liquor bill, is not paid
by tho liquor men, but by tho whole
tax-paying population. This item'
of itself would pay tho whole of the
Government debt in thirteen years.
It cost, on an average, six dollars a
p:cce for every man, woman and
child in the whole country. It adds
from thirty to fifty per cent, to your
State and County taxes every year.
This direct tax upon the peoplo, to
punish crime, take care of pauper
ism, and other burdens caused by
pauperism, was ascertained iy ac
tual investigation in 1861, in Uls
ter county, New York, to bo sixty
por cent. Bear this in mind, when
the Collectors comes around, that
from thirty to fifty per cent, of tho
State and County lax ia your por
tion of the liquor bill of the coun
try. You may complain about your
other taxes. But don't complain
about your portion of liquor taxes
till you havo at least tried to sup
press this whole liquor business.
Now let us see what this liquor
bill amounts to. The first, or retail
cost to consumer, is near 1,500,
000,000. The loss of time from use
ful employment, 300,000,000. The
results of intemperance for which
tho community have to pay about
200,000,000. This makes the actu
al cost of intemperanco to the coun
try, nearly 2.000.000,000, enough
to keep 2,000,000 of men in the field
at a cost of a thousand dollars each.
No wonder at tho Nation's of Eu
rope keeping their large standing
armies, in time of peace, at a great
expense. But we keep a great, reel
ing, staggering, drinking army, at
the most enormous expense.
This enormous expense and waste
of property I charge upon the law
makers and voters of the country.
You suffer and tolerate it from year
to year. . '
to congratulate you, and humanity,
through your prospective influence,
that through the inspiration of thie"
progressive age. you have been cn
bled lo take a long stride in ad
vance, as evinced by the appearance
of our County Prohibition Ticket
at tho head of your columns.
Humanity's guardian angel shall
twine an additional sprig of laurel,
another branch of immortalis, in the
chaplet for the brave of all those
noble workers m the great army of

ness that his works entitle him to
Although having been myself
identified with tho Republican Par
ty from its organization, and rejoin
cing with its most zealous cham
pions, over the glorious achieve
ments which, through its influence,
have been wrought for the eleva
tion of humanity, felt, not only over
the whole American Continent, but
which has sent a thrill of joy thro'
every humanitarian heart in all
the civilized wtirld, by the enfran
chiseraent of four millions of bond
men in the United States, and the
demonstration of tho faith of a
great Nation in the immutable
principles of eternal justice. Yet,
while i see and rejoice over these
glorious achievements, it is also ap
parent that tho great object and an
imating principle in the organiza
tion of t!at party has been accom
plished, and its leaders seem inca
pable of comprehending, or averse
to grappling with the great and
comprehensivo interests and de
mands of this happily progressive
age. And hence the necessity of the
organization of a new party, whoso
very foundations are laid in the re
cognition of. the world's greatest
necessity a sober, iudustrious, and
moral people. And this happyfy
ing condition is always reversed by
by the manufacture and sale of in
toxicating beverages, which invari
ably engender drukenntss, indo
lence, and depravity.
The world's history furnishes ve
ry fewevidcuccs of the achievement
of great reforms by engrafting new
objects and ism's upon old parties ;
but only by formation of new ones,
with a new rallying-cry for their
Talisman, and new objects and in
terests for their inspiration.. And
it does seem to me that Republic
ans are the last men who ought to
ignore the philosophy of the form
ation of new- parties, which they
are so loudly boastful over the
achievements of their own compar
atively youthful one.
And if such glorious results have
been attained in so 6hort a time, by
a party organized for the accom
plishment of a local purpose, what
ineffable glory may nota party hope
to achieve whoso object is the en
f ranchisement of universal humani
ty from tho greatest curse and most
degrading influence of the age, and
whose field of operation is the entire
habitable globe ? No one, surely,
with any faith in the ultimate pro
gression of the race, can doubt the
inevitable success of so laudable an
enterprise ; and all that is necessa
ry to secure the triumph of the
Prohibition Party, and tho. univer
sal adoption of its principles, is Mm
ply to present its objects and aims
so as to secure their consideration
by tho masses of the people. But
there are so many who depend up
on others to do. their thinking that
it is bard to bring a new truth to
their torpid consideration, unless it
be presented by their old party lea
ders, and that is extremely difficult
to accomplish, on account of the
personal) interest jsaid leaders have
in keeping their dupes in ignor
ance so that they may be the more
But keep those glorious Prohibi
tion principles at tho mast-head ;
throw your Temperance bani.er to
the stirring breeze and disenthrall
ed humanity shall yet crowd be
neath its ample and protecting
folds, and hail with peans of tri
umph and shouts of praiso those
who have nobly toiled for tho en
franchisement of the race.
