Washington politicians have expressed
the opinion tht additional reconstruction
measures will have to be resorted to before
the difficulties in Louiiian.tc.in b settled.
Louisiana, in common with other southern
states, has had an overdose of reconstruc
tion, which is what ails it now. Lest
reconstruction, less radical carpet-bag
government, would work n change in the
condition of Louisiana. The stale is feeble
from too much radical doctoring.
Ait o.vo the late afflictions visited upo
poor Chicago are mad dogs. One of thes
bit a ion of Alderman Stone, who, anxious
for the safety of the boy, took him sixty
miles into the country in order to try
the virtue of a madstone. Tho stone was
applied to the wound to which it adhered
for two days. A young German of Chica
go, bitten by the same one which bit young
Stone, also tried the virtue of a madstono
which, after adhering two days, fell off,
apparently having extracted all tho poi
son frcm the wonna.
Is a racent temneranco lecture in Hon
ton, Senator "Wilson declared that there
waro fewer drinking men in Congress now
than in former years. About ono quarter
of the senators are pledged temperance
men, and there is not among tuem one
who may be termed a drunkard, and the
same is truo of tho houto of representa
tives. This it a very gratifying statement
certainly, but not quito so gratifying as it
would be if tho people did not kno-v that
their radical senators and congressmen
are not quite so careful to obey tho com
mandment "thou shalt not steal" m the
are to heed Solomon's injunction to look
not upon tho wine when it is red.
TUU TKUPEllASCE LA W.
The act of the legislature of this state
to provide against tho evils resulting from
the sale of intoxicating liquors, liuving
received tho signaturo of Gov. I'almor, is
cow a law, to which all within its reach
must render duo obedience. It is removed
beyond the sphero of legislation and Is
placed upon Its triil beforo tho people nnd
tne courts. As one of tho jury, who by
ngnt ana prescription Is called on to
pass upon this new addition to tho body
ofonr laws, we propose to examine its pro-
visions. o approach tho subject, us
every juryman should rnoet questions sub.
rallied to his arbitrament, without propo
session for or sgainrtit. In making thU
acknowledgment, it will not be nmlis to
qualify it lo u certain extent by saying,
that while wo are opposed to laws in their
nature or effects prohibitory, wo never
theless favor soma enactment which will
control tho sale of intoxicating liquors us
at present allowed.
Rut Anile wo dtsiro mich rt.truint wo
willnorerylold our sanction to tho theory
that the state is the guurdlan of public or
privaio morals, or hasanv right to take

millenlum, such control may succeed, but

ThU law Is entitled "An net to pro
vide ngalnst tho evils rouiltlng from tho
saloof Intoxicating liquors in trie unto 01
Illinois," and contains ten sections.
The Urst section provides for licensing
groceries to sell In any quantity or to give
away liquors, under a bond, in the penal
sum of three thousand dollar, with the
conditions, that all damages which may
bo intlicted in person, property or means of
support, by the selling or giving nw:iy
Intoxicating liquors, may be recovered lor
the uso of any person or persons who may
be Injured by means of the selling of In
toxicating liquors by the person or
agent so obtaining tho license. To this
section wo seo no particular objection, as
It only confirms, by statute, n principle
which has ever obtained under the com
mon law, that every man Is responsible for
the consiquences of his nets.
Section second prohibits tho sale to min
ors or to persons in the habit of getting
intoxicated. Perhaps theio may arise
some difficulty In interpreting tho latter
clatuo of this section, ns tho legislnturo
make no cJMIncllon between n habit
which is confirmed nnd one which is Inter
mittentat least it is open to legal inter
pretation. Section third provides that all places
where liquor is sold without a license arc
common nuisances and shall be shut up,
but not until nfter the conviction of tho
Section four makes every person who
sells enough liquor to produce intoxication
liable to pay any one who takes caro of
such intoxicated party two dollars a day
for every day ho is drunk,besides a reason
able compensation. Our objection to this
section is that it is uncertain and indefinite
and for this very caus? will bo produc
tive of endless litigation nnd expense.
Section five providos that cvory husband
and wife, child, paront, guardian, employ
er or other person who shall bo Injured
in person, property or means of support
by any intoxicated person, or in conse
quence of intoxication, shall have n right
of action against tho party selling as well
ns the party owning or renting the build
ing where the liquor is sold, giving a mar
ried woman tho tamo right to sue as a
feme sole, nnd to control the amount recov
ered ; making such sales or gifts of liquor
to wcrk a forfeittiro of all the rights of
lessee or tenant under any contract
of lease for rent upon such
premises. Under this section it will be
observed, rights aro conferred In dorogn
tlon of n decision of our supreme court,
which has declared, that, under what U
iisuullv termed the "woman's act,'' tho
husband of n feme covert must join in ttio

the violation of tho firt, second and third
sections, which nro lino nnd imprison

and ono hundred tho maximum ol the
lines, and ten to tlfty days tho limit of Im
prisonment, with an Abatement of tho
placo where tho liquor was sold, ns u nui
sance, until a bond in ono thousand dol
lars is givun to keep n house under tho
law. Section eight makes tho real and
personal property of kecpors of groceries,
etc., as well ns owners thereof, ll-iblo for
all fines and penalties imposed under the
fifth section, nnd especially tho property
in which tho liquor is sold ; but, if tho
property should belong to n minor, idiot

Without waiting many words on this
section, It will only bo neces'ary toobservo
that it at onc brings up n very grave con
Hltutlonul quctlon and upon which, in our
opinion, thuwnulo act rests. It is, whether
thorn Itu limit to the Ifglslatlvo functions
ol ii state, and where that limit U. If the
legislature can. by such a law, make ono
party liablu fur tho act of another, who Is
neither partner nor iit-unt, or In nnr wuv
implicated or concerned, tho courts o'"
last resort must decide.

HISTORY MY '.THE SALINE
A RATHER LARGE FUSS ABOUT
A VJJKY SMALL MATTER.
Tho following history of the "Mcrritt
Resolution," wo copy from the Saline
County Ilegisler, tho editor of which, Mr.
Pickett, has long advocated "a plank" of
similar import, nnd went 'o the late dem
ocratic stale convention with such n plank
In his pocket :
The history of the "Mcrritt resolution"
is about as follows : Going to tho last
tUte convention, tho delegates from the
13th congressional district talked up the
matter of a free trade find direct tnxatlon
resolution, nnd when they appointed a
member for tho committno on resolutions
tho writer hereof wrote out one and it was
taken to the committee. "When tho tem
porary organization of tho convention was
effected, however. Mr. Mcrritt endeavor
ed to offer ii resolution of similar import.
It was not received, but in consideration of
his occupying a lending position in tho
party, our 'delegates decided to let him lead
the light if the committee on resolutions
ignored tho subject in their report. They
did ignoro It, Mr. Mcrritt offered his re
solution, it was amended on motion of Mr.
Ohcrly of Alexander county, nnd finally
adopted. The writer of this nrticlo endue
vored to induce Mr. Mcrritt to nccept an
amendment favorinc tho amending of the
constitution of the United States so that
direct tuxes shall bo apportioned accord
ing to wealth instead ol according to po
pulation as now, (without which taxation
with a view to relieving the people of the
west from paying more than their duo
proportion of "national taxes would bo a
farce) but he refused, nnd the resolution
was adopted bv n vote of a lnrce majority
of tho convention.
The resolution was n very bungling itf
fulr, as passed, anyhow, nnd was adopted
in the shape it was'by the convention, only
because its discu'-ion had consumed "a
great length of time, and the delegutcs
thoucht the people would bo wUo enough
to seo thut tho diitiocraiio party hud riot
declared in favor of illrcct lnxo, i l.o

Out of thogluronnd heat and we.-irinc.-s

to tho Uuko Alexis, I brought u picturo

what they say of tho envy anil jf-ulousy of

beautiful girl in n ball-room, gladder bo
