which densely cover tho stutes of Illinois,

that tho country contiguous raises, in great

The editor of the I)u Quoin 'Tribune' speak
ing of tho application of Alexander county
for hor own state taxes for the period of ten
years, to reliovo tho immense pauper burden
that is now weighing down our people, says :
"It maybe all right nnd seemingly necessary
for Cairo to ask such relief In the midst of
her financial embarrassment, and yut tho pre
cedent would bo dangerous in the extreme."
Tho editor of tho 'Tribune,' in his eager
no to stab Cairo has made an as of himself.
Cairo is asking no rulief needs none.
Alexander county is paying out more mon
ey for thu caro of pauper than nny five coun
ties in Southern Illinois, and as the paupers
neccjiiutlng that outlay corno from all partt
of the state, the legislature Is asked in the
name of tho county, to place a share of that
burden on the broad thoulders of tho state.

undue expense, wherein is tho danger of u bad
As to Cairo's financial embarrassments we
have to lay wo should be greatly pleased If
we could become similarly embarrassed. If
e, like tho city of Cairo, owed only 175,000,
and had $5,000,000 out of which to pay it,
our oinbarreMtnenU would not trouble us a
particle. Wo quotiou It much, if in thc
whole norihwest there is a city on u better
footing, financially, than Cairo. An assess
ment of three and a half per cent, (which Is
less than thu average state and county levy
Impend in Illinois), would wlpo out the debt
of Cairo In a single year. Talk about the
financial embarrassment of n city that owe
one dollar and ha thirty dollars wherewith
to pay it I An enmity begotten of Idiocy
could scarcely go that far.

PROJIIRITOlir LIQUOR LA If.
Tho petitions pouring In upon tho legisla
ture from localities in thc northern part of
the state, praying for tho enactment of a
stringent prohibitory liquor law, calls for n
general expression of sentiment on that sub
o havo on former occasions entered our
protest against prohibitory liquor laws, be
cause of thejr repugnanco to tho spirit of our
government, because they savor of tyranny,
nnd becauto they fail in thu attainment of
tho ends nt which they aim. Further than
thl, we hold that legislation of thatchnrnctcr
enters a forbidden domain a circle where
man rules himself, nnd where the only Inw is
tho lnw of conscience. At this1 point compul
sory measures excito resentment, and, though
over so stringent, full short of effectiveness.
Kxcesdro drinking Is fruitful of evil, but a
prohibitory law will not apply the remedy.
Kvcry man is thearchitectof his own life; and
th law that denies to him n gratification of
his appetite, denies what ho conceives to bo a
natural right, and, therefore, partakes of an
unendurable tyranny. It seeks to take away
from the citizen that "freo agency ' thatmakejs
him an accountable being, and throws around
his inclinations a restriction that seems at
once oppressive and tyrannical. For thooo
reasons and others, we tako It, that the evils
of intempcrnnco can never bo cured by com
pulsory measures. Katlonal men will always
insist ujwn thu right to control themselves in
that regard, nnd will, therefore, evade nil
measures that seek to deny them that self
government. Tho right to drink, to cat, to
gratify the longings of appetite, although
subject to abue, is regarded as a natural, in
herent porsonal rights, and will nevr be
shaped by legislation. Moral suasion is the
only earthly power that will ever banish
drunkenness, and the experiment of tho past
twenty years the enactment nnd attempted
enforcement of prohibitory liquor law. have
demonstrated this fact too clearly too admit of
Wo confess to a tardiness in acknowledg
