The Governor on Prohibition.
Governor Tinman plainly inti mates that he will not vhto an] prohibition measure which the Legislature may see fit to enact. Tbisy notwithstanding in his judgment such a law would' not only prove futile, but in a measure disastrous financially, inasmuch as it would deprive the State of considerable revenue and entail additiona^expenditure in employ ';- ing the "many eyes and far-reach ing hands" necessary "to carry it into effect." The Governor, in the course of ^hia able paper on the subject, make? it clear that the Legislature is not to be considered as pledged to pass such a law in consequence of the issue as presented in the recent election ; he makes manifest his conviction not only that the \|aw "will not enfor.ce itself," but that "prohibition will not prohib it it;" he calls attention to the in ability of the courte to deal effec ; tively with the prosecution of such cases in localities where public sentiment is divided on the sub-, joct; (in connection with which we may note the failure in, our j courts of the test cases recently j made in this city under the Sun day law ; ) he says, "with a major ity of the people in i he towns in favor of selling whiskey the Prohi bitionists in the country will find themselves handicapped and their efforts rendered nugatory in at tempting to control the nuisance," and that "the people in this S?tate are already sadly divided along . this very line of town against country, and the wisdom of further division is questionable." He still thinks the adoption of his former recommendation giving the city or town the right tb license the sale, but directing all revenne ^ therefrom into the county treasury, would be the most satisfactory and effective disposition of the matter: And "Another danger," he says, "which we cannot be blind to, will be the probability of a desperate political struggle between the Pro hibitionists and che Anti-Prohibi tionists two years hence, with an appeal to the negro as the balance of power ; for in every town and country where this question has been fought out at the polls, that has been the effect, and when ap plied to the State we may look for a like result." While giving the weight of his argument and opinion against the proposed experiment, however, he says they are given "rather as a . matter of information than as showing any antagonistic views on my pi rt," and that he "will cheer fully approve of any law" the Leg islature "may enact" on the sub ject. The fate of Prohibition, there fore, is entirely in the hands of the General Assembly and time will soon determine the purpose of the people's representatives with re gard to it.-Charleston Sun. * *- Lay Still, Sonny. The following story is told ol Dr.John Finley, of Kentucky: The doctor is rather a small man, and was traveling in company with Col. Crocket Sayers, late U. S. Assessor for thejsixth district o? Kentucky. Crocket, as everybody calls him, is one of those whole souled, jolly fellows, always ready to play a joke upon anyone, and can draw the scales too over three hundred pounds. They had neg lected to secure sleeping berthe before starting ; so when they ar rived at th? depot but one berth remainedjunsold. With all due politeness, each offered to surren der bis claims to the other; both Rei ning, but agreed to occupy ii together. It was a "tight squeeze,' but they both "turned in." Ar hour or two passed, in which neither of them could go to sleep ; so Crocket determined to get up and-take a smoke. This was a happy relief to the doctor. Hi turned his face over to the wali and was soon fast asleep. Thc train in the meantime had stopped at a small station, 'and an elderly female got aboard. Her figure wac almost on. a par with that of t h : colonel's. She was in no waj backward in denouncing railroads their employees, and everybody who would travel on them. Wher she learned that all the berths hac been taken, she "must lay down . for she was nighjdead 1 " This wat a glorious moment for Crocket Winking at the conductor, he po - . litely offered to surrender to he] his berth, provided she had no ob jections to sleep with his "litth boy." Of course she had none. She had "raised seven, and wac fht . grandmother of as many more.' She thanked him kindly, pullec off her shoes and other f?xTns', anc Spiled in." The doctor was sleep ing soundly, but before day h( became quite restless. The ole lady very motherly patted him or the heai?, saying, "Lay still, sonnj your papa will soon be here ; go tc sleep?, you precious," and othei >B??riilar epithets, which the doctor he became fully awake. iew did not emanate from- his I friend, the colonel. Realizing ids j position, he hounded over the old lady and made tracks for. the rear end of the car. She screamed, and in a moment everybody was up, thinking, perhaps, that something had happened. ' The joke was ex plained, the passengers laughed, Crocket was forced to beat a hasty retreat, in order to keep clear of the clutches bf the old woman, I while Dr. Finley sheepishly stole I into the forward car, and did not show himself again until the train reached Cincinnati.
