ritOBAllILlTV OK A DKAD1AXK AT THE EI.Kt.
SrKiM'.KiELD. January 13. Both houses
of the assembly, with quorum, present, met
this evening and adjourned without tran
factinir anv business. In the senatorial
agony M-nijjht, lbrtlie first time, the much
talked of bolt assumed positive and very
damaging shape to the Iigan interest. It
isapp.ireiit that this has finally become the
tactics of Oglesbyaud Farwell, they hav
ing concluded that their chances are gone
nnd that this is the only way to dispose of
Logan; and that to-night this meth
od positively seeinft to have the
elements of success iu it. While
this movement has been much
talked about of late, it has been held in
reserve by the leaders of the opposition as
a last desperate resort and is now their bat
tle cry. It is said that from ten to fifteen
Republicans will totally ignore the caucus
of to-morrow evening, but who they are is
the question. If this does uot prevent
Logan's nomination by the caucus, it is
further claimed bv the opposition that he
will never get the necessary 104 votes for
an election in joint session. The Repub
lican strength on joint ballot is 10(5. 01
these the opposition claim that from four
to six votes will cither be cast against
Loiran, or absent themselves, thus produc
ing the desired dead-lock, which of course,
THE DKAD-l.iK K
once effected, Mr. Logan's chances for sena
tor are a: an end. This result will not ve-
illy cau-e Gov. Cullom any unhappiness,
because it is then ho expects to get his re
ward as Logan's friend. There is much
talk to-night in legislative circles about
Logan's vote going to Cullom, as second
Jioiee. which indicates that Logan' peo
ple are beginning to get demoralized, or
Cullom and his friends have actually begun
the canvass, Cullom hits n very good idea
of how to obtain success for himself, and
lie was never known to permit friend or
foe to stand in his way or an opportunity to
escape him. The Logan folks claim two of
the Socialists, so that it will require more
than four to defeat him, but the opposition
assert that they already have these andthat
the dead-lock is an accomplished fact.

in that section, most interest is felt in the

Orleans to consider the cause, proper treat

made at this session of Congress. There is
here a man not a physician, but endorsed
by them who believes he can prevent tin
introduction ot the disease into any place,
and when its ravages are stopped, can pre
vent its recurrence. He is a London man,
Prof. Oamgec, and his plan, so far as made

The most significant of late newspaper
articles is probably one which appeared on
the 7th iu the New York Sun. This most
savage of anti subsidy journals goes so far
as to sanction aid to the Texas and Pacific
railroad on the following terms: "1. If
there is to be anv loan of government credit
it must be rigorously restricted to the trunk
line from Fort Worth to the Pacific. No
branch whatever can be included. 1 1. One
fourth of the cost of construction and
equipment must be paid by the company
out of its own actual capital. III. The
real cost of the work must lc ascertained
by officers of the United States Engineer
corps, appointed for that purpose, and the
government aid must be confined to three
quarters of that cost. IV. The government
must hold a first mortgage on the road and
plant. V. All the public lands granted
must revert to government control, so as to
be sold to actual settlers. VI. All earnings
for government transportation must be re
tained in the treasury." Except the 2d and 3d
these poiuts are embraced in the bill before
congress. Iu that resjiect the road is more
modest in its request than the Sun iu its
offer. It asks only that the government
shall garantee the interest on a limited
amount of its bonds.
Justice Hunt of the Supreme Court is no
better. His retirement from the l.encli

health becomes fully re-established. Thi

WHO IS RESPONSIBLE: THE DRAM
DRINKER OR THE DREAM
Mu. Editor: There seems to be a variety
of opinion among temperance workjrs as
to the direction in which their energies
should be employed. Some favor a raid
upon the Legislature to prohibit the manu
facture and sale of liquors. Others favor
an onslaught upon saloon keepers, and an
effort t ) make the business so reprehensi
ble in public estimation that nobody will
follow it; while the larger number favor
labor anrmg the drinkers an exercise of
moral suasion to win them away from their
cups. As for myself I entertain views in
common with none of these people, but fa
vor the holding of tho th inker of the poison
to u rigid personal penal responsibility.
My creed in this matter is well set forth in
the following communication, which I
adopt as my own :
"Now as I am deeply in sympathy with
a movement that has a tendency to stop the
abuse of intoxicating liquors, and improve
the morals of our people, I take this oppor
tunity to express my humble opinion upon
the subject, with an apprcheusion, however,
that it will not meet with a very flattering
It has always seemed to mo that tho ex
ponents of the temperance cause entertain
certain vagaries which, to a grout extent,
retard tho progress of their work. To
(Miint out a few of these is tho object of this
communication. We all know that tho ox
cessivo ii80 of strong drink is a terriblo tivil;
that it fosters vice and crime, and if un
checked, would ultimately load to tho ruin
of a uation und degeneracy of its people.
To stem its course, then, should bo the duty
of every man and woman in tho land, who
have their own interest or welfare of society
Ht heart. Thus far I agree perfectly with
my toinperanco friends. Wo now come to
apply thu counteraction, and hero I want
to take exception from tho recognized
methods. First of all tho opinion prevails
pretty generally, that saloon-keepers ate
directly responsible for the vice and licen
tiousness that issue from intemperance. It
is in accord with tin popu'ar sentiment to
slander and defame them. They arc looked
upon as outlaws who deserve the gallows,
or, if more convenient, a lamp-post. The
drunkard, who is the real criminal, is
pitied and the tears of compassion fall fat
and thick upon them; whilst the saloon
keeper who is an honorable man is consigned
to the lowest depths of infamy. In my
judgment, this is entirely wrong. I do not
like vicarious atonement. Every man
should suffer for his own misacts. If he ctm
not take a drink ot w ine, liquor or bcr
without becoming its passionate serf, he
should never touch it. No man is forced
to dnnk.and in my observation, I never huw
a saloon-keeper urge a customer to drink
ftgainut fife will. Whilo we ate talking
aljout the character of saloon-keepers, let
mo say, that as men they will compare fa
vorably with the best classes of our people.
With little exception they are honest, intel
ligent and licnevolent. The withered hand
of charity n sver knocks at a saloon door
in vain. Besides they do a leginiatc busi
ness, and paving as they do, a:i enormous
sum for the privilege, they should b"
entitled to a limited share- of
respect that is lavished upon
other businessmen. Then let us cease to
Insult and harrass them, and turn ourntten
tion to the besotted miscreant who justly
merits our contempt. Instead of making
him irresponsible, according to present cus
tom, we should bring him to a full account
for his misdeeds. Here is where reforma
tion ought to begin. We stiflcr him to go
on, however, revellirg in his licentiousness
and neglecting his familv. From time to
time be appears before the. Mayor, makes
his little promises, and off he goes to repeat
theoffeuse. This kind of punishment will
not do. It will not correct the offender,
neither will it abate debauchery. It is but
little In'tter than a farce, Would you
know my remedy? Inaugurate the whip
ping-post! But I fancy I hear the howl ot
the opposition arising from the temperance
camp. I will be told that I am a barba
rian, and that my doctrine is not in har
mony with thu enlightened of the .nine
teenth century. Are drunkenness and
crime in harmony with the present advanced
state of civilization? In my opinion twenty
five lashes, judiciously applied, would re
form more inebriates than all the prayers
made since the days of Father Abraham.
A few more words, Mr. Editor, and I will
close. Who are the men that sneak into
the rear door of the saloon, nervously pour
down their liquor and disappear without
wanting to he seen? They are blatant in
their denunciation of saloon keepers, mid
will not sign a petition to grant them li
cense. Did you ever see one of them mani
festing his enthusiasm nt a temperance
meeting, and going in heavy for the "good
of the cause';'' If you ever did, you are tic
one of ten thousand who did not.
In conclusion I desire to say that 1 am
not a saloon keeper. I never have been.
On the contrary I am a temperance man
and a teetotaler from principle, and no
from impulse or necessity. Where men r.ie
so far gone that appetite has complete in;
tery over will, they should be confined : t
public expeuse and subject to medical treat
ment. Cases of this kind arc few; but
those who destress their families and bru
talize themselves through a spirit of pur:
cussedness, or any other motive, save tl .
exception mode are fit subjects fir the
whipping post, and shohl be made to fe; 1
