WHAT IS THE ISSUE t
A vigorous clT.M't is being niado to force the
41 Liquor Law Reform Association" of this city
to carry the Maine Liquor Law, with nil its
leaden weight of prejudices, through the coming
local contest. One question at a time is enough,
when only one question can be uilectcd by vot
ing. Many who belong to the Association have
Hot mado up their minds upon the subject of
the Maiuu Liquor Law, and some ore in doubt
ubout the propriety of t.ny State prohibitory law
ttt all ; but no member doubts the right of the
city to prohibit the sale of intoxicating liquors
within the city limits. The power is expressly
granted in our charter. To substitute a ficti-
tious question for the real one ; to Mtbstitule fog
for sunshine, doubt fur certainty, constitutes the
dodging system of luetics resorted to for the
purpose uf deflating the objects of the Asso
ciation. Dr. Morton, the President of tho Associa
tion, has exactly laid down and marked out the
position occupied bylho Association. No for
eign question will be permitted to jostle the true
issue off the track.
"Vox Poi'CLi." Wo find an interesting
corrtmunical ion over this signature in yester
day's Tri-Weekly Messenger, accompanied by
an excellent article from the Louisiana Record.
We would publish both in this mnifber of our
weekly, but have not now room

what we said about the lloonville Mayor and
the Printer's Association was not intended to!
"encourage any unpleasantness among neigh
bors." Can't you take a joke, you crab-apple?
J3 The Uoonvillo Observer informs us that
n Mr. James P. Tate, a cabin passenger on the
Polar Star, committed suicide by cutting his
throat while the boat was rounding to at the
lloonville wharf last Wednesday. He died in
about fifteen minutes. He was from lennessee.

probably be elected in Texas.
Last night was very fully attended. After
prayer by Rev. Mr. McCoy, Mr. Lennon fa
vored the audience with n sensible, practical
speech, after which Dr. .Morton delivered the
address published in to-day's paper. Rev. Mr.
Dines, by request, mide some appropriate re
marks, in which he very distinctly gave the
public to understand that he was heart and hand
with tho " Hannibal City Liquor Law Reform
Association." He was followed in some re
marks by Rev. (J. S. Weaver, of St. Louis, ond
Rev. Mr. Phillips, of this city, the latter ol
whom very properly stated emphatically that
tho " Maine Liquor Law" was a question not
now before the people of this city, but a per
fectly distinct issue viz: Whether the citizens
et Hannibal will use the power conferred on
them by the Legislature, enabling them, when
they see proper, to prohibit entirely the sale of
intoxicating liquors within the city limits. This
' question has nothing at all to do w ilh any kind
ol' Klatn nruhibilorv law uucslioll. This is the
- - j t
distinct position assumed by the Association.
The Association then adjourned, to meet next
Tuesday night in the Christian Church, to hear
addresses from jufsons to be uppointei by the

The subject which now cngnges the attention
ol our association, is the effort to abolish the
sale, and use as a beverage, of all intoxicating
liquors, in the city of Hannibal.
We think it has been fully demonstrated,
thill the use of intoxicating liquors, as a bever
age, benefits no man, but that it is the source
of incalculable mischief and misery to our citi
zens a national calamity, and i- curse to the
We, therefore, ftel it our duty to strive by
every lawful und proper means, to free our city
from the destructive practice.
Our own city the present ubodc of ourselves,
and the future home of our children, constitutes
the peculiar theater of our action.
Already, by refusing to license dram shops
and groceries, where liquor is sold by the glass,
our city authorities have done much to militate
Still, we find the practice of dram-drinking
and intoxication exists to an alarming extent
kept up mainly, as we sincerely believe, by the
facilities afforded by thn Rectifying and Liquor-
Selling Establishments of our city.
We therefore desire to see those establish
ments closed not in tin illegal and disorderly
manner ; but in a lawful and proper manner
not from any hatred we bear to our fellow-citi
zens who conduct t'.iem ; but for the love and
Inty we owe, to our unfortunate friends who
cannot, or will not, resist the temptation thus
spread out before them by authority of the Law, I
and for the regard we have for public order ami
peace, as well ai piivale virtue, prosperity and
I am not advocating the enactment of "the
Maine Liquor Law," or any general statutory
law upon the subject.
My remarks are intended to apply especially
to the city of Hannibal, and to this time.
Our charier the existing Law of the State
of Missouri, declares that the City Council shall
have power, not only " to suppress tippling
houses and dram-shops," but "to prohibit the
sale of spirituous liquors within the city," when
ever that, measure "shall be deemed proper."'
See "Charters of the Town and fity of Hau
tiib.d, Sec. 7 and art. Glh of an act to amend
and reduce into one act, the several acts incor
porating the City of Hannibal."
We deem it proper now, und we think a ma
jority of the citizens of Hannibal so feci, and
we confidently hope they will express that feel
ing at the next election.
In proof that our people arc in favor of this
measure, see petitions presented to our Lily
Council, and to our ('nunty faurt, praying the
prohibition of the Liquor Trafiic signed by an
overwhelming majority of our citizens.
We w ish the matter fully understood, und
fairly tested ; and if we find that a majority ol
our fellow-citizen differ from us, we say let
their wishes govern, tifl in fairness, friendship
and love, we can convince them of their error,
and carry our measure by a majority of Patriots
You who have known me for years, are awai t
They will11'"'1 I bave not participated in the exciting po
litical contests tnat have agitated our country;
nor is it my intention to do so now.
We wish it distinctly understood that this is not
a party measure ; but a question of local inter
est having nothing to do with party politics.
Our citizens voted, some time since, whether
the city should subscribe stock to the Hannibal
and St. Joseph Railroad, or not. We united,
without regard to party, and both Democrats
and Whigs voted for the measure.
And why did they do this ? I answer, bc-
cause they thought it would be for the interest
0 Hannibal to have the Road.
Did any one dub that enterprise as a Demo,
cratic or Whig measure? No. And why?
Because we all knew it was a measure common
to the citizens of Hannibal, both Whigs and
Democrats and peculiar lo neither party
Again, many of yon will remember that some
years since, the voters of Hannibal (largely
hnr:l buried their tiarty politics for a time
united upon, and cllecled ('ol. It. F. Richmond,
a staunch Democrat, to the Legislature not be
cause they approbated his political principles,
but a local question whs pending, which the
interests of Hannibal demanded should pass.
So far as the great parties of Democratic and
WhiLfuro concerned, from my youth, I hae
been a Democrat, and I expect lo die a Demo
crat. Still, I do not understand that the princi
ples of Democracy require that every town und
neighborhood election shall be determined by
the complexion or national politics, which hap
pens lo predominate in that particular location.
Particular circumstances may exist, or local
questions arise, which may not only justify, but
absolutely require, all good ciiiens to disre-
.ard the ordinary political combinations, for a
time, and U r i'Iv, as a band ol brothers, around
a common measure, for the common go4.
Such circumstance, in our opinion, now
exist such a question has arisen, snd eucli a
concert or action, we believe, will be witnessed;

I Who it not mortiAed almost daily; at the die

neglected and destitute families and from

And w hat, let me ask, is 'the cause of this
diterdcr, cruelty, poverty and misery ? Nine
eases out of every ten of them, I daro say, arc
brought about by the use of intoxicating drinks.
Ten years ago I was acquainted, perhrps,
with every man in tho then own of Hannibal.
Among them were many noble spirits, with
whom I enjoyed a friendly and pleasant inter
course. 1 look around mo to-night, and see but
few of that cherished band. Where are they '
Somo that wcro driving a lucrative business'
surrounded by happy and lovely families, are
now bankrupts, and others, stung by the same
accursed " worm of the still," now sleep in the
drunkard's grave ! I knew somo of them well.
They were noble and generous men, ond when,
by the ruthless spirit of alcohol, they were torn
from their sorrow-stricken families and friends,
a sad, a chilling vacuum was created, which
pains tho soul or the philanthropist to behold,
and which can never-never again be filled.
We say that a large proportion of this dis-r.-der
and vice, poverty and aflliction this in
dividual, social und political loss and suffering
is attributable to the use of spirituous liquors.
" Oh," says one, " these establishments are
a disadvantage to Hannibal, but I am not to
blame lor it ; I can't'help it."
Not so fast, my good friend ; it is your fault,
j be0J,,sc caH ,,e'l' iL . Do '0" n,k me how ?
I unswer, by co-operating with us, and usintr
your influence to procure the passage of an or
dinance which shall prohibit the sale of spirit
uous liquors in the city of Hannibal, and voting
for such men as will faithfully and rigidly en
force such an ordinance, if elected.
It has been said that we have a secret docu
ment, which we require the candidates to sub
scribe; but this is not true. We arc ready to
submit our most secret regulation lo oil the
