A bill, called the "Wilkins School Bill," has passed the State Senate and is cow pending in the House which there is good reason to believe, was gotten up in the interest of the powerful and wealthy school book monopoly, which has its headquar ters in Cincinnati. The "nub" of the bill is in the following section : Each Board of Education shall deter mine, at a regular meeting, by an affirma tive vote of three-fourths of all its mem bers, the btudies to be pursued and the text. books to be used in the schools under its control ; and no text-book ahall be changed within 'three years from the time of its adoption without the consent of three- fourths of all the membej-s elected to the Board, given at a regular meeting ; and no change of text-booka Bhall be made, except at the commencement or the school Bessiou or term in which such text-book is to be used ; and ail the branches shall be taught in the English language-, and no ouperin tenaent of Schools, teacher, examiner, member of, or clerk of a Board of Educa tion, or other school officer, shall act as agent for the sale or introduction of any school books or apparatus, or receive com pensation iu any manner whatsoever for the sale or introduction of any kind of school apparatus : and no superintendent of schools or teacher shall introduce, or cause to be changed, any text-book, with out the lei?al authority of the B jard of Ed ucation ; aad any violation of the provis ions of this section shall be deemed a mis demeanor, and Bhall be punishable by a fine not less than ten dollars nor more than fifty dollars : and if any teacher or super intendent shall violate any of the provis ions of this section, then, in addition to hne, his certificate as such teacher shall be levoked. This appears very fair on its face, and would be taken -at first eight, as a measure intended merely to pre vent the too frequent changes of school books, which is so much com plained of by parents ; but in reality there is a very large cat hidden un der the meal, and the real object of the law is to prevent competition of other school book publishers with the monopoly referred to, of which Yan Antwerp, Bragg & Co., of Cin cinnati, are the head. It is stated by persons who are well posted, that this monopoly has already made sev eral princely fortunes out of the sale of school books in Ohio, and it is well known that a powerful lobby have been working at Columbus for some time past, to secure the passage of the Wilkins bill, who are believed to be in the pty of the aforesaid mo nopoly. If they can secure tho ex clusive eale of their school books even for three years, under this bill, it would swell their profits enormous ly, and they can well afford to expend a few thousand dollars in paying a set of lobbyists to work for its passage. We hope the House will carefully in vestigate the matter before acting on the bill, and if it is found that it is in the interest of the monopoly re ferred to, as has been charged, it should be promptly consigned to the fate it deserves, at the hands of the people's representatives. LOCAL OPTION. AN ELOQUENT APPEAL TO THE LEGISLATURE. Oar "stalwart" brother Fairman, of the Clermont Courier, adds his voice to that of the scores of thou sands of citizens of Ohio, who are demanding of the Legislature th passage of a law to enable the peo pie to protect themselves from the evils of the liquor traffic. Hear his eloquent appeal : If the Ohio Legislature have any dispo sitiou to stand highly in the estimation of the people who have sent them to Colum is to do their business, they will take some certain ground on the question of the liquor tratiic, and that turther temporizing wun an evii no gigantic is 10 jeave me en emy in possession ol the held, the lie- ublican party lias possession of the Legis lature. Ihey have the power to crush on vils. and should not withold it. The Re publican is a partv of law and order, of justice and right, it was the Kepublican party that loosed the shackles ot lour mil lion slaves, and to-day there are others slaves to appetite, who are looking to the Ohio Legislature for a proclamation of emancipation that will bs received with loud acclaim throughout the broad land. Of course entire freedom is impossible, but there is a way to bind the enemy to con fine him to territory outside of which lie cannot move a means of making him less dangerous, and of providing safety for the weak. It is a law that will effect this hap result that the people require at the hands of their servants. It is Local Op tion. Men who tor years have been chain to their degradation will vote for it wives and mothers will esteem it a heaven sent boon : the eood, the true, the grav haired eire. and the bright-eyeit school bnv. the maiden who prays for the safety her lover, the crowing babe that wafts noon its rosy fingers a kiss to the tather, he poes to his daily pursuits the mass mankind and humanity, will be the bet ter for it, and vet the Legislature in its ponderous wisdom uesuaies. Aiie case is plain one. Make a law that will enable communities to decide whether or not their people shall be the ones from whose ranks alms houses, penitentiaries and hos- nitals are to be recruited, or whether their villages shall resound with music of labor the work-davs ol the week, and with hvmns of praise on the Sabbath whether streets shall be scenes of rowdyism, the promenades of prostitutes and thieves, and abiding place of crime or whether men shall meet togetner in peace anu quiet, in the bonds of a brotherhood that temperance and virtue more strongly knit together day by day whether the eyes that watch for the coming husband shall be dimmed with tears or beam with smiles whether children hall find a safe and hap pv refuge in the s rong arms of the father, be thrust rudely aside, and sent supper less to bed in a word whether industry, its blessings of thrift and prosperity, hold the sceptre or whether intem perance, with its hundred curses of shame, degradation, and death shall wield the rod. the Legislature pass the law, and let people say "Amen." a :or n pic not She to all and ALL AROUND.
