who All these dishonored graves.
He inquired how this supply was
kept up, and assumed that a projMir
tlon of moderate drinkers go over to
the hummer ranks, and a contingent
of aiistai tiers fall into the habit of
genteel tippling. This is not well
thought out. A slaughter of 75
000 innocents annually by the
demon alcohol is a trille over one
tenth of one jier cent of our popula
tion. This comparatively small
waste can be sloughed oil" from our
jMipulatlon and the loss lepaired by
growth and natural Increase.
The lecturer said the habit or
drinking was increasing in the
country, and to sustain this quoted
was precipitated into the abyss, ami
j a hundred of the inmates sufleied
By this plesant apologue the lect
urer showed the nature of the license
He used the oldsterotypeargument
that alcohol is a public enemy and
should be destroyed. Said he, sup
is)se some poor friendless boy should
be picked up on the streets of Salem
by a foreign power, and carried oil'.
Is there ii man within sound of my
voice who would not turn out di
rectly he heard of the outrage, and
make that poor, helples boy's wise
his own? Yet a whole army of our
fellow countrymen, many of them
from sonic brewers' Journal showing I the brightest in the land, are seized

about the decline In the Use of dis
tilled spirit. The leport of the
commissioner of internal revenue,
made Nov. 1st last, showsa decrease
lu the tax receipts for the fiscal year
ending June JlOth, 18S", from dis
tilled spirits, of 6.'l,lL.i,8S, while the
Increase in the tax receipts from
fermented liquors, during the same
time Is tL,is),7US. Mr. St. John did
not tell the whole truth; he was
guilty of siippresslo veri. It would
ho dicouragiug to the moral senti
ment of tcniiH-'iiince reformers to lie
met Willi the fact that their ctl'orts
towards restraining theuseof strong
drinks, by a perverse law lu human
nature, led to its increased con
sumption. But the stand oil' above
given is reassuring. It slums that
beer IsK'lng substituted as a bever
age for that subtle spirit of evil
whisky; and of two evils this is sure
ly the lesser one.
Mr. St. John indulges in the same
pervere argument in regard to high
license in Nebraska that the little
giant did. He Insists it has increas
ed the number of drinking places,
It lia added to the consumption of
liquor in me state, and crime and
disorder have been intensltled. Tills

Regulating an evil moved the lec

has taken snufl'. You cannot regu

not regulate a mad dog when no is

at every wayfarer lie meets. But
our moderate minded reformer our
high Hcon mail would catch hint
andcutoiran inch of his tail. If
this did not quiet him lie would
dock another inch. This on the
principle, most probably, that the
