Platform of the National Prohibition
Party Adopted at the Chicago Convention, Sept'r.
v7bcbb a, Protection and allegiance are
reciprocal -duties, and every eitisen
who rieids obedience to the just com
mands of his government is entitled
to the fall, complete and perfect pro
tection of that government in the en
joyment of personal security, person
el liberty, and private property, and
Vf bebcas, The traffic in intoxicating
drinks greatly impair the personal
oeo&rity and personal liberty of Largs
masses of citizens, and renders pri
vate property insecure, and
berk as. The -existing parties are
hopelessly unwilling to adopt an ad
equate policy on this question, there
fere 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 or eoentry and enr race,
cite in the following declaratioa of
. 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 State? severally and their
inseparable union by the Federal Con
stitution, we woald not merely garnish
the sepnlchers of our republican fkth'
. era, but we do hereby renew our sol
eon pledge of fealty to the imperish
able principles of civil and religious
liberty embodied in the Declaration of
American Independence and our Fed
eral Constitution. ... --
2. Tht the traffic in intoxicating
beverages is a dishonor to Christian
civilization, inimical to the best inter
ests of society, a political wrong of un
qualed enormity, subversive of the
ordinary objects of government, not
eapable 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 Legist-,
toon. -M-.- .
. Tkat ia view of this, and lBasmnch
as the existing political parties either
ppoee or ignore this great and para
mount question, and absolutely refuse
so do anything toward the suppression
of the rum traffic, -which is robbing the
station of its brightest intellects, des
troying its material prosperity, and ra
pidly undermining its very founda
tions, we are driven by an imperative
sense of duty to sever our connection
with these political parties, and to or
gnnise ourselves into a National Prohi
bition Party, having for its primary
ebjeet the entire suppression of the
trafSc in intoxicating drinks.
4. That while we adopt the name of
the national .Prohibition rertv, as ex
pressive of- our. primary object, and
while we denounce all repudiation of
wt pubho debt, and pledge fidelity to
the principles of the Declaration of In
dependence and the Federal Constita-
toon, we deem it inexpedient to give
prominence to other political issues.
S. 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
tereste of the party. - . .-

of Noble county, over which he pre

tare in Caldwell, and theN-bleCo.
Republican is greatly elated there
at. I r
While we are always well pleas
ed to learn of temperance lectures
being delivered, even if they only
be of the moral suasion character,
yet we object to the Republican's
showering such lavish praise on
Judge Grangor as being a model
temperance man,' s.nI onr objec
tions are founded on the fact that he
is not entitled to it. . ' '
While it may be true that the
Judge is a. total abstinence man ;
while it is true that in Counties
like Noble and llorgan, where it is
a popular thing to enforce the Li
quor Laws, that ho will mete out to
violators of said laws -the punish
ment prescribed ; while it is true
that be is over ready in temperance
localities to talk temperance ; yet,
notwithstanding all this, we see him
armed with the power, to close op
every open bar in Zaoesville, and
never making ona effort to do so. -
We ventare to assert that there
are at least one hundred places in
the city of Zanosville whore the
State Liquor Laws are violated on
an average of at least once in every
fifteen minutes in the day, where
Atcoholio Liquors are retailed over
the coaater by the drink as openly
as dry goods are sold in the stores,
and we venture that Judge Grang
er knowa this as well as we do if
not better; and, yet, pretending to
be a temperance roan, having Grand
Jury after G raid Jury at bis com
mand, having a Prosecuting Attor
ney at hand that is bound to do bit
bidding, having a witness of these
violations of the laws in almost ev
ery man he meets, wo might say ev
ery officer of bis Court even ; hav
ing all these means at band, yet we
never hear a word of his tempor
ance proclivities proclaimed . in
Zanosville, we never bear of a Li
quor Vendor being prosecuted in
bis Zanesvills Court for violating
the State Liquor Laws.
But, we bear some Republican
say : "It is not tbo Judge's busi
ness to see that prosecutions are in
stituted against, tows that violate
the Slate Liquor Law ! That is
the business of the Prosecuting At
torney !" Snppese tht a band of
horse thieves infested Muskingum
county, and soppose that they bad
grown so nnmeroua as to be able to
carry the election. Then suppaae
that they elected a man Prosecuting
Attorney that pledged himself not,
to proeeeuta horse thieves. Under
such circumstances, whsn the Pros-:
seating Attorney woald be carrying
out his' pledges to his constituents
by not having witnesses tabpoeened
before tbe Grand Jury to testify a
gainst horse thieves, what wcnld te
the duty of Jadge Granger? Would
it bo to go down into Noble county
and lecture on the . evils of horse
stealing, and to neglect to force tbe
Prosecuting Attorney of his own
County to enforce the laws against
horse stealing f Snch would seem
to be bis duty, nnder such circum
stances, judging from bis course re
lative to the Liquor Traffic.
If Judge Granger wishes to prove
himself a thorough-goine temper
ance man, be has an ample field be
fore kiai in Muskingum county, and
fortunately bis position, as Judge
of the Conrt of Common Pleas,
gives him ample 'means to prove
himself to be in earnest in bis pre
tensions. It is tree that by doing
his duty in seein; that tbe Lawk of
Ohio are enforced in Uoskingumi
county, be wight find pnblie senti
ment arrayed against h:m, might
find himself losing a great deal of
his popularity, but then, certainly,
as good a temperance man as oar
Republican friends would fain make
out Judge Granger to be, would not
hesitate to count, the coat of bis
carrying ont bis - principles. Cer
tainly, principle ' with the Jndge
should never succumb to wishes for
popularity. '4 , . ... . ' , " ..

Climate of the Northwest.
Harper's Weekly, ia a reeent in
teresting article descriptive of the
country traversed by the route of
the Northern Pacific Railroad, gives
the following reasonable explana
tion of the remarkable mildness of
climate and fertility of coil which
characterises tbe vast region which
has come to be known as the New
Northwest. That journal says :
The fact of the mildness of the cli
mate which prevails along the belt
of country tributary to the line of
the Northern Pacific Railroad, is
abundantly established. Nowhere
between Lake Superior and Puget
Sound is the climate colder than in
Minnesota ; and this great Stato is
aot surpassed as a wheat-produc
ing region, or in hcalthlulnewj of
atmosphere. Dakota ia very simi
lar to Minnesota; and from Dako
ta westward tbe climate steadily
modifies, until, in Oregon and Wash
icgtrn Territory, there is almost no
winter at all aride from a rmy
season, as in California. Through
out Dakota, Montana, and North
ern Idaho cattle and horses range
eut all winter, acd in the spring are
fat and strong. Records kept by
government officers at the various
military stations on the upper wat
ers of Missouri nbow that the aver
age annual temperature for a series
of years bas been warmer in Cent
ral Montana than at Chicago or Al
bany. Tbis remarkable modifica
tion of Climate, the existence of
which. AO well inforared person wow
questions, is due to several natural
causes, chief among wbi'rh are
these : First, the country lying be
tween the 44th and 50th parallels is
lower by some 3,000 feet than the
belt lying immediately south. Tbe
highest point on the line of (he
Northern Pacific Road is 3 500 ft el
lower than tbe correAponding snm
mit of tbe Union and Central line.
Both the Rocky and Cascade rang
es, where they are crossed by the
Northern Pacific route, are broken
down to low elevations compared to
their boight 400 miles southward.
This difference in altitude would
aecount for much of the difference
in climate, as four degrees of temp
erature are usually allowed for each
1000 feet of elevation. But, second,
the warm winds from tbe South Pa
cific, which prevail in winter, and
faided by the warm ocean currents
-corresponding to omr Anlantic Gulf
stream), produce the genial climate
of oar Pacific coast, pass over the
low monaUin ridges to the norlh
of latitude 44, and carry their sof
tening effect far inland, giving to
Eastern Washington tbe climate of
Virginia, and to Montana the Cli
mate of Ohio, without its dampness
and chuu ;
Tbe same cause the depression
of the mountain ranges toward the
north accounts for tbe abundant
rain-fall in nearly all parts of this
vast era.' lhe southwest winds, sat
urated by tbe evaporation of the
tropics, carry tbe ram-clouds east
ward over the continental divide,
and distribute their moisture over
the ' fertile belt" stretching from
the mountains to the lakts. Purth
er south the mountains, with their
greater aliunde actas a wall against
the warm, moist, west winds ; hence
the colder winters and the aridity
of the portions of the regions south
of Montana and east of tbe moun
tains. That the climate of that new
Northwest which is now to be op
ened to settlement, travel, and to
trade, is such as to make it a con
genial borne for the migrating mill
10ns of Central and Northern Eu
rope, and the crowded portions of
our own land, there is no doubt.
Phi Pittsburgh Couimercii, the
leading Radical organ of Western
Pennsylvania, considers tbe worst
feature of the deposition of Sumner
the aelection of Simon Cameron as
ni2 successor. It says that the Pros
idenliai wish was potent enough to
effect the removal of aananer, and
then adds that we public will reach
tbe conclusion that Cameron mast
be accepted as the representative of
the Administration: It thus puts
tbe case : Sumner ' was removed
because the President desired it.
Mr., Cameron could not . have been
choeen by tbe same Seaalors with
out General Grant's approbation.
This is the logical ded action, and
the Administration must lake the
responsibility of Sumner's deposi
tion and the appointment of Camer
on. . We say this ia so unfriendly
spirit, b simply record a most un
fortunate political fact."

A New Dynasty.
The Chicago Tribune (Republi

upon the selection of Simon Camer
on as Chairman of the Committee
on Foreign Relations. It says : ,
"In the gooetai, we may say uni
versal, protect which bas been

will leave every one to bis own op

agraph from the U. S. Dispensato
ry, page 738, shewing bow Alcohol
may be roado uift for drink and
yet does not affect ita ntility as need
by Manufacturing Chemist., and in

" ''Tho British Parliament wishing
to encourage tlio use of Alcohol in
tbe Arts, but not as a beverage,
passed an Act, in 1855, allowing it
to be used duty free, it being at
that lime subject to heavy duty,
provided it be mixed with at least
one-m'nrt of its bulk of Pyroxylic
wood Spirit, which renders it un
til for drinking, bnt does uot spoil
it for use in the Arts. Tiie mixture
is called Methylated Spirit, and is
now em ploy od extensively in Great
Britain by hatters, brass founders,
and cabinet makers, for dissolving
Shellac and other resinous aubslan
ces, and by manufacturing chem
ists, lor making ether, chloroform,
and sweet spirits of nitr. These

Or the two hundred and twenty

per cent, farmers and plasters ; ful

Reason and Revelation.
: Editor Conservative:. Sir An
you let "bojs S2", men of "braina
and "no braina" write for your pa
per, 1 wish 10 say a lew words in
regard lo the above beading. There
are aJwaya lJ extremes, and 1 be
lieve there are in tins : there is one
that says all Reason, and no Revc
lalion, and the other says, all Rev-
l&lion iid no JieaeoB. .
We do not believe it neecssary to
abandon iiiior v r Jer to the ban
piness of mau. but rather combine
them, and yon bave roan in hin true
attributes. Revelation is to Reas
on what light is to the eye. or sound
to the ear. A man with the best
eye that pertain te tho human spe
cies cannot ave without light, and a
man Willi thr best rcsnmng faculty
Unit ptritaiiis to man. cannot Sccur
li is o n happ Di ss without revela
tion. . Thia is demonstrated in tbe
history ol the .Nations without the
revelation of God : truly delineated
by Paul, in the last hall of the first
chapter of Romans, "Even as they
did not like to retain God in their
knowledge, (here ia reason alone),
he gave them over to vile afflictions,
to dishonor their bodies between
themselves, who changed the truth
ot God into a lie, and worshipped
and served the creaturo more than
Creator," ttc, then gives some twen
ty in roe 01 the darkest crimes our
flesh is heir to, and seals tbe whole
by saying, "it is a shame even to
speak of those things that are done
of them m secret. Eph.
The wisest and best of the Gen
tile Philosophers felt tbe need of a
revelation. , in Plato a dialog
with Alcibiades, npon tbe duties of
religious worship, a passags occurs
which confirms tbistbongbt:
Socrates "To mo it appears best
to be patient : it is necessary to wait
till yon learn baw yoa ought to act
towards tbe . gods - and tewards
Alcibiades "When, () Socrates
shall that time be ? and who will
instruct met for most willingly
would I see to is person, who be is.
Socrates "Ho is one who cares
for you ; but it is necessary that he
should first take away tbe darkness
from your mind ; and then bring
near those things by which you
soaw Know gooa and tvu.
Alcibiades "Let him take away
tbe darkness, or any other thing, if
he will ; for whoever this man is, I
am prepared to refuse none ef the
things which he commands, if 1
ahull be made better." Platonics
Thus groped thoso best pbiloso
phers of Greece, aided by reason a-
lone, and we would be no better off
were it not that we have a revela
tion that plainly reveals our duty
to God anJ man.
Reason creates nothing, but with
a proper basis of action before it, it
may combine, define, and divide ad
infinitum. We look at tbe beautiful
star spangled heavens over our
bead, we admire and are lost in its
beauty and harmony reason says
there was a great author and fiu.
is her, but can no more tell the arch
itect than tbe reader can the auth
or of those lines. She may guess and
conjecture, bat, like Alcibiades, it
is all in tbe dark. It is the same
with the origin, duty, and destiny
of man we may philosophise, con
jecture, and dispute, but the ques
tion is never settled till a revela
tion kindly and reasonably tell us.
God made man in His own image,
and we should kvo, serve and obey
Him, and one another, and thereby
make etornity our lasting, abiding,
and bappy borne, liav we thus do.
