TUEsDAY, December *b. : : I 166a.

KE'NTUCKY has 44,937,000 gallons of
whiskey on hand.
The last session of the Legislature
of 1882-83 has ended and the acts
and doitig of the individual
membere . - of that body will
receive comment favorable or unfavor
able at the ballot box in November
next. It is a matter of no little inter
cst and concern, to know just what has
been done and what will be the offbets
upon the business and industries of the
State. With the acknowledgment to
start with that improvement can yet be
miade in the ability and personiel of
both Houses, yet it would be safe to
say that the make-up of tile Present
General Assembly is inflinitely superior
to any legislative body that has assem
bled in the State House since the war.
This perhaps after all is not saying
luch, but it is certainly one of the
cncouraging signs of the times that
the voters are gradually becoming
- more careid in the selection of their
representatives, and that more regard
is now paid to the ability and fitness
of men for tie position than at tile
party's first advent into power in 1876.
There is much to be praised and
some little to be criticised ill tile action
of tile session of the Legislature now
closed. Th1e greater bulk of the bills
passed were of no public interest or
concrli, and ats such11 are undeserVinifg
of public notice or public comment.
Upon the other hand, someIO half dozen
measures of lasting and far-reachiig
conscquence to tile people and to tile
State at large, caine lp, were discussed
and finally disposed of, and it yet rc
-mains.9 to be determined whether the
ntion10 upon tilell was wise or unwise.
The defeat of the divorce law, we
believe, should be a source of regret,
and we do not hesitate to say that in
our opinion our law-makers in their
fiual disposition of this measure let
piass by a splendid o)portunity to
remedy some of the wrongs aid evils
of our social system and by so doing
promote the peace and domestic hap
piness o'f tile marriage union. A prau
deitly restricted divorce law is one of
tile necessitics of our civilization, and
it may he defeated upon the very
tllreslold of tile agitation, but it will
be sprung and agitated agaiin and
againl, an~d mark it now, it wvill inl
somel shapej) or formn fin~ally pass the
Not onlly tile General Assembly but
tile enltir'e State shlouldi be congratulat
ed1 111)0n theO final paIssage of tile rail
road bill. The esr iiniin l onl-, (.akc
from thle com~miRsionl the powver to fix
tariff rates, leaving . thienm thecir

inlcalculable diinage wals being done
thle in~dustries of thle State is about as
well for'tified as observation, ox pe ri
01nCC anid reason could1( make it. Sona
tor Gaillard inl his admirable speech11 inl
tile Senalto last weok upon03 the bill1
said: "The true policy should be to
leave the railr'oads to manuage theoir
. own aff'airs and fix thirl ownl rates,
smibject oly to correctionl in case of'
-.abuse or' violationl of law or' thec rights
of tile citizenl. Thlis is a righlt thlat

railroads. Tile r'ight to inlvadle private
property is p~reserved, anld as8 long as

To the end of his life Disraeli always ate
very sparingly when alone; this enabled him
to keep a good appetite for public oosions,
themeby rbutting the presumption which his
face suggested--that he was honsump.
UmIn this connection some remarks of his
about wine way be mentioned. Hard drink
ing was In fashion during his youth, and at
public dinners men who lot the bottle pass
were hardly regarded as gentlemen. Disraeli,
who could never stand much wine, suffered a
good deal from this social usage, and he set
himself to study the demeanor of men who
ould drink deep without being any the worse
for it. Lord Melbourne was one of these, and
he gave Disraeli a wrinkle by saying: "You
can drink if you don't talk; If you talk much
you needn't drink, for people will think
you're drum)k and lot you alone."
It is obvious that the excitement of conver
sation must co-oporate powerfully with the
fumes of wine in naking the brain reel.
Disraeli having noted this fact, went further
into the subject by observing that a man's
convivial propensities are always taken for
granted if ho talks in praise of wine and ap.
poars to be very critical about it. Some of
his remarks savoring of the most refined
epicureanism may therefore boascribed solely
to his temperate desire to find excuses for not
drinking. He was not a judge of wines,
though he pretended to be, and once allowed
himself to lay down the lavy about Burgundy
against tho late Lord Softon.
Barely in Time.
"By the way, I was speaking to a very
intelligent station-master the other day
about the crop of holiday railway accidents.
'Do you think,' I said, 'it has much to do
with the long hours' He at once replied,
with the utmost warnith and eagerness: 'Sir,
you can take your stand upon that. If you
are over in company where that question is
started yon will be right in denouncing the
hours. No one will be able to reply to you
then. Undoubtedly, the men are worn out,
oppressed and fatigued beyond all powers of
"'Look at that poor follow in yonder signal
box,' and he pointed to one hard by; 'ho has
been there for twelve hours at a stretch
every day it is the samo thing. That man
has not even thno to snatch a quiet meal, no
rest, dare not relax for a minuto. Well,
what's the consequeneol Some break down
and die off, others go off their heads, and
you never can tell when the break down is
uominng. The men won't give in-it's their
bread; the station-mnaster daren't complain,
and the directori know it. They don't care
for the public safety; they can afford the
dhamages. Human life is nothing to thor ,
nor human hearts and brains either. The
thing,' he added, 'is scandalous, shaneful,
"At that moment an express was sighted;
his quick eye caught the pointsman flagging.
'John, look sharp!' and he hurried off. 'Johi'
was in timo, and only just. The train flew
back like a hurricane, and 'Jobn' lounged
away languidly with his hands in his pockets,
looking fit for the hospital."
