By the provisions of this-bill, every fel
low can order as much whiskey as h<
wants for his own use, but he must no
"give, sell or barter" any of it away. A
fellow must drink it all himself. This
you see, will be a great savingof mone:
to the people. .This bill also make
provision for those of us who are to<
poor to order a keg and pay for it an<
the express, too, by proposing to es
tablish a dispensary in each county
This is a splendid idea. It will givi
employment to many poor, needy fel
lows, who now have no place in the
line. At this dispensary a fellov
can get a little *for "hbis stomach'
sake," and a little for "scientific pur
poses," &c., provided the dispensar;
man doesn't charge more than 10 pe

these courts presided over by old, .grey

now being made all alon;g the lines i

ers, in their combined and unlimited
wisdom, will call a constitutional con
vention of all the people, to frame a
new constitution and do away with
this old cockle shell under which we
are living, and which is so at variance
with our modern progress. It is true
this convention will cost the State
probably $100,000 or more, yet this is a
small matter for a great State like ours,
when we consider the great benefits
and immunities each of us is to receive
under the new order of things. For in
stance, one of the changes will prob
ably be the abolition of the two mill
school tax, and inserting in lieu there
of a poll tax of $3 on each and every
constituent. It would be unwise for
the people's representatives, after fram
ing a constitution, to go to the trouble,
time and expense of submitting it back
to the people for ratification or rejec
tion; yea, it would be foolishness to
send it. back, because we would all vote
for it if our leaders said so. They know
exactly what we need, much better
than we do, and after framing a "noble"
constitution, it would be the height of
folly to ask us if it suited us or not.
There is no necessity for any such dila
tory nonsense as this. Such things

BALTIMoRE, December 2.-The first
marketable tea ever produced in the
United States was brought to Balti
more to-day by Charles U. Shepard, of
Summerfield, S. C., who grew and
cured the plant on his farm. The
American tea was tested by Mr. Gillet
Gill, who pronounced it equal to the
best high-grade English breakfast tea
and superior to many grades grown in
India and China. The samples brought
here by Mr. Shepard are all of one
quality and character-black, crisp,
and well scented. It makes a strong
beverage. This quality of the Ameri
can tea is said by Mr. Gill to be due
solely to its treatment in fermenta
tion and curing. Other methods of
curing the American product will pro
duce tea similar to the several brands
y that come from India and China.
Judging from Mr. Shepard's samples,
Mr. Gill says he believes the successful
growing of tea in the United States is
established and that the industry
should be encouraged and fostered.
Mr. Shepard raised only forty pounds
of tea this year, which was cured in
an ordinary fruit evaporator.
