A LOCAL OPTION PETITION IN
CIRCULATION.
HEALD 4 CO.'S OOMING SALES.
A Petition Fop Signatures Wlileh Asks
the Coming Legislature For a Local
||Opt]oii Enactment—The Photographers'
Troubles.
The following petition is being widely
circulated for siguers, and will be presented
at the next session of the Legislature, there
being blanks ut the bottom for "voters" and
for "other person 1 :"
PETITION FOR LOCAL OPTION.
To the Honorable , the member* of the
Senate and the Home of Representatives of
the State of Delaware: The undersigned—
voters, and other persons residing in
county of the State of Delawure, respect
fully submit for your consideration, that, in
our judgment, both the authorized and the
unauthorized sale of intoxicating liquors,
are productive of evil, only evil, and that
continually. Briefly we thus sum up the
evil results :
The inevitable immorality, poverty.degra
dstion and suffering, which intemperance
entails on thousands of families, are the
legitimate fruit of the liquor traffic.
The puace ami good order of society .....
continually disturbed, and the record of
crime 1 r fearfully augmented by the exten
sion and continuance of the liquor traffic.
Taxation is increased beyond the ordinary
need of good government, because of the
expenses Incurred for the punishment of
criminals and the support of paupers, In our
State. This outlay, probably, exceeds the
entire revenue from the liquor sellers and
distillers, not les6 than three fold—or three
times as much more. And whatever the
excess of that expenditure may be, over this
revenue, is the exact amount of the addi
tional tax imposed annually, upon the vir
tuous poor, the sober, the honest, the indus
trious, the thrifty citizens of Delaware—to
uphold the agents and instruments of In
temperance. Aud this cannot be much
less than 950,000 yearly, in our State.
For these sufficient reasons we earnestly
pray your honorable bodies, during the
present session of the Legislature, lo enact
a Local Optiou law, to bo submitted to the
voters of-county which shall author
ize a majority of those voting in favor of
the law, to prevent the sale of intoxicating
liquors us a beverage, within its limits.
