It is gratifying to find that the trade
newspapers exprers cheering expecta
tions o( "an active and heo'tby autumn
trade." The aubsldence of labor
troubles and the failure of tbe work
men to establish the tight hour sys
tem are regarded as favoiabls indica
tions. Generally row stocks on hind,
and the Increased purchasing power
of tbe laboring people, owing to tbe
general resumption of work and more
Mileiautoiy pay, are sure to inciosas
tha demand for merchandise, and such
a demand can so 'rely fall to give an
Impulse to business. That impulse
will Inspire confidence, and with con
fidence better times can hardly fail to
come. Weobeerve that in this con
nection tbe New York Bulletin tUtes
that "there is a growing conviction
with many employers (which may or
msy not be well founded) that labor
in many important Industries will be
mach cheaper next tall and winter
than It is at present." Cheaper labor
means, of coarse, a reduction
in tbe wages of tbe working people.
There Is something paradoxical in an
opinion tbat, with a better demand
for goods in the fall, and a more active
general trale, wages will to down.
Tha exptc'a'ion of cheaper labor muBt
be an expectation without a basis, or
tbe tendency c f wanes under a more
active business "ill be toward an ad
vanoe rather than a decline. Under
these circnniBtances it looks as if low
wtgfs were rtVif for rather than ex
p.cted. Piu:h a wish Is as absurd on
tbe part ol empliyers as would boa
desire that protl s as well as wages
might be lower. A desire for lower
wages Involves, what is not meant, a
wish that tbe parchaaiog power of the
mass ol ths community msy be re
stricted. Money from satisfactory
wages clrcula'es and keeps up active
trade movemoiit. Take the money
from the wotkers and add it to the
surplus possessions ol capital,
and the bulk of it gops
into stocks and bonds and other
investments aud accumulations that
have not the power of .promoting gen
eral monetary circulation, such as tha
working people live to it. It iWt
tbe amount of money posecssethat
makes the community prosperous,
but the amount of it Uiatis in circu
lation. Money that lie la tbo bank,
however it may accnuanla'o, il ies not
quicken trade, but money in tbe
hands of tbe mass of the people pastes
from ona tonother,circta'ntje briskly;
foodkfothing and com lor ts art in
fTml demand aud trade is active.
Vith the pooplo underpaid for their
labor, buying pior food, wearing rags
and obtaining no com forte, trade will
languish, fur the ricb bavetbe money,
and being few tbey circulate but a
email portion of the wealth existing,
while money in the hands of tbe mnl
litude circulates and flushes trade
with the v gorof Ufa and the anima
tion that a?comi ai.ies prosperity.

The parallel which we propose to
draw in tbis article will show the
striking similarity of tbe history of Ire
land and tie Southern States. Tbe
war between the States ended tn
April, 18G5. One tf t'ne issues decided
by tbis wsr was tbat tbe States vtro
indiwolnble; tbat toe Southern States
were tiever rat of tbe Union. Accept
ing this as n accomplished fact the
Southern people renewed their alle
giatcs to th4 Union and raodartook to
restortttbali former relaiins to the
government As tbe State were
never out of the Union, the Southern
people ctsiaed tbat the autonomy of
tha Soathe n States was unimpaired
and that there wai no power to pie
vent the peple from 'exercising the
rights guaranteed bylhe CoDBtitution
to every State in tbe Union. President
Johnson concurred in this opinion,
and tha Southern people elected
Governors for their respective
States, Setatorj and Representa
tives to tbe Corgreis of the
United S atrs as an earnest of their
determination to renew in good faith
their allegiince to the Constitution
and laws of tLe Union. But the Re
publican party In Cong rets, drunk
with power, blind to a 1 sense of jos
tles and Inflamed by the mid passions
bom in war, scornfully repelled all
these patriotic overtures for peace and
a res'ored national brathorhood, and
with eatanio malign ty, carefully de
vised, deliberately pa-sod and ligldly
enforcsd tin rcconstract'on measures
known to be unconstitutional and so
declared by the Republican Supreme
Cjurt of tho United States. These
measures were infamous in their oru
eityand despotism. Tbey were in
tended to humble the pi ido, crush the
hopes, break the spirits, pnraljn the
energies and destroy ths man
hood of the Southern people.
Wblto men were disfranchised,
propcribid, iosulUd, peisecuted,
robbed and plundered. Negro govern
ments were established over theSjuth-
ern States and patriot io and intell'gent
white men disfranchised, and those
who paid tbe taxes were imprisoned
and insulted by negroes and carpet
baggers. Tbe people of every Siuthern
State remembers with vivid distinct
ness the frightful sceoej ensctei dur
ing these fearful days. Isnoran lt
groes, just liberated from slavtry, and
white carpetbag thieves filled all tha
oflloes. There was a saturnalia of
plunder, corruption and rascality
The horrors of war were nothing com
pared with tbe agonies of this fright
ful period. Impressed with the be
lief that the whites wers crushed, hu
miliated and domoraliad, and that the
negro governments wore firmly estab
lished, military support was withdrawn,
Tuo'i tbis miserable puty began to rot
with tho rapliitr uf a decaying carcass
under a midsummer sun. At each
succeeding election tbe honest taxpay
Ing white people arose in their msjes
ty, and one by one of these corrupt
State governments were burlod in the
stilling stench of their own filth.
Home rule was granted tbo Southern
States snd they bounded into new life
as if by magic. Wonderful and
marvelous was the change. The
Southern people are peaceful, prosper
ous and happy, and with stiady tread
are s'.iil marching onward and upward.
With horns ru'e the South has
bounded into proeperity. With mill
tary rule thoro would still bjcorrap
tion, barbarism, ignorance and pov
erty. In 16U6the King of England
concocted precisely tbe eame sort of
' reeons'ructlon measures" for ruling
and destroying Ireland tbat tbe Re
publicans adopted in 180,) to rnle and
destroy the Southern States. He
sent a standing army into Ira-
land, with Instructions to check the
growth of the country in trade
and wealth. This army wai as fatal
to Ireland as was tbe rule ot the car
petbaggers and tho cogrocs to the
South. This English carpetbag army
took a malicious delight in persecut
ing, breaking ths spirit'', pualyrng
the energies and destroying ths man
hood of a people whose only crime
consisted in auk ing for theblets'ngs of
horns ule. Ths wonderful resnirces
of Ireland laydoimant. Any effort to
develop them was suppressed by the
carpetbag army. Ireland is rapab'e
of illimitable possibilities. But she is
poverty striken and unhappy be
cause "the despot's hod is on her
neck." But at last tho day dawn is
breaking; the lonit night of thraldom
is surely passing away. Ireland will
soon ba given tbo blessings of home
rule, and then her people, like thoie
of the South who passed through ths
rams terrible ordeal, will em-rga it to
a peace and prosperity unknown and
uj- uioir iruiuui.on, minesoi DnuntllPSS

To tha Editors of lb Appeal :

sult of religions, intellectual, political,
industrial and social lorcee, ana is
progressive In i'l nature. It is the
doty of every atan s ndy tbis great

to be familiar to everv man, and to be
kept steadily tn mind as rules of roub-
lic conduct We learn these principles
irom Dis'ory, wnicn is cut a lecora oi
the atroggle mankind have ma'eto
disengage tbemselv s from a lower
condition and bring themselves into
a higher and bettor I'ne. May I ssy
at this juncture tbat these sacred fun
damental truth, which have been de
veloped by the history ol unman
proKreer.ongbt to be the earnest study
of every man who apirrs to win the
connuenee and irauctilses ol CIS
fellow-citizens, either as a maker
or executor of the lawsT May
I go further, and commend
these political axioms to the thought-
-Jul consideration ot tbe party lead rg.
who sssnme to indicate to tne people
the men who are to fill tbe various
otlices. These principles are not theo
retical, but practical ; and sorielv suf
fers in the extent to wbich they are
disregarded. For clearness, I number
them and state them in my own lan
guage, though they can be found in tbe
pages of a'l writers on political science.
1. The Sta'e is oran'zed upon the
tao t agreement that individual liberty
is limited. No Individual lies any
rignt to ao wnat injures any otner in
dividual of ths community.
2 It is the primary obiect and su
firems function of law to define the
units of Indi vidml liberty, and to pro
tect society against its abuse.
8. Tbe SU e being clothed with the
discretionary right to determine what
ia and what ia not dangerous to the
peace and welfare of its citizens, is
also clothed with tbe necessary police
authority to execute its will.
4. Thu Stats has decided that trade.
being a public act. atlectinz others be
sides tbe individual engaged in it, ia
properly subordinate to tne public
will, and can only exist by its consent
No man can sell what he pleaies.
6. It is inconsistent with the funda
mental principles npon which ths
State is organized, and destructive of
tne objects for wbion it exists, to ner.
mit any trade to be carried on nnder
the sanction and protection of law
tbat is injurious to the people.
6. Morality is tbe batis of the State.
Politics ought to be the ccience of the
aif 'ration of morals to public aflaiis.
Mr. Herbert Spencer has pointed out
ths danger to American institu'ions
from tbe suppression of ths moral ele
ment n our public life.
7. There is an educative force in
law. It is, therefore, manifestly dan
gerous to tbe true interests of society
to afloid legal prottc ion to vice. All
forms of vice ought to ba outlawed,
and made publicly odiou.
8. Revenues raised at ths expense
of the virtues of a people are a curse
instead of a blessiog. History baa
laugbt this over and over strain, with
sncn clearness and such emphasis that
msfurpriBing any intelligent person
will for a moment qurst'on it.
0. No law absolutely prohibits tho
evils against wbich it is aimed. In
the present imperfect state of human
society the beet ws can bope to do is
to reduce the evil to a minimum. I
invite all thonghtful men to apply
these principles io the traffic in intoxi
cants. We have in Memphis perhaps,
500 places where tbe sale of liqior is
authorized by law. Tho men engaged
in this trade claim tbat they ara nn
der tho shield of public opinion, and
ao far ss tbey can shift responsibility
I his is true. We give them iwrmt'pion
to carry on this traffic Bat let ns
eliminate all ptrjooal feeling, and for
the nones drop the nse o! partisan
epithet', and calmly ak ourselves, is
it the tight thing, in tbe light of the
principles eoumeia'ed above, for us to
permit this iraflio to continue? Are
not these things true:
1. That the trade in intoxicants is
the source of a vast amount of harm
to Bociety. It is needless to cite proof.
I suppose no one will deny that the
liquor doaler Is the only party bene
fited by this buiine s. It hurts
everybody else.
2. Ttiar the absolute prohibition of
this traffic is the only nstural and
proper way of dealing with it. By
natural and proper, I mean in har
mony with the general policy of the
State in dealing with other evils. We
do not liceoBe, bnt prohibit murder.
We do not license, tout prohibit tbe
spread of contpgiom disea-es. We do
not license, but prohibit the adultera
tion of articles o! f o J. We do all of
this on thu ground that tbe public
sale y demands not tbat we snould
regu ato but that we stould prohibit
Mich evils. Here is an evil of sncn
magnitude that the mind shudders to
dwell u non it. Should wa license or
prohibit il?
3. Tbat experience has demonstrated
that probibiurn is the most effective
meaos of linrting the drink evil. This
will not bo as readily granted ss other
posi'ions I have etUed ; but I am sure
a little investigation would remove all
donbt. It is difficult to explain tbe
intense opposition of tbeliuuortUaltrj
to prohibit on, if it is the failuio they
allege. Ic is equally difficult to ex
plain why thore commuuitis which
have given prohibit on tbefaire t trul
thould continue the policy if it is a
failure. S ill more difficult is it to ex
plain the rapid development of senti
ment in its favor throughout tho
country In the fe tf the p rs's'ent
as-ertion that it Is a failure.
It is customary to refer to those who
sdvortte this tneasur-s as "cranks."
"entbuiaets," "fanatic," etc. ; but in
view of the fact, which can now
scarcely be denied, that .this
hnn bectome a great ethico politi
cal qneftion of American civilization,
ia it not t int t o abandon ths billing
sato of the ward politician and discus'
it from tbe stamlpo'nt of Hue and
neiious s a'eamcn'lvp? A question
like this cannot be ignored or snr

all quietly done with the view tbat a
settlement might ba made before Mia

rather queer, be said, that a priest oo

Catholic pksturj, i: appesais, gay tmt

The su t is based on the fact that
