GOOD In bidding good-bye to the credit system of doinpbnsiness, we do so with a consciousness that the principle underlying the system, could it be safely guarded, is a good one, ss it is gratifying to a business man to re ciprocate favors with his customers to give favors from whence favors are received but at this dsy, when financial honor is esteemed so lightly, the credit system has, in our opinion, from its abuse, become an unsafe and unjust one, forcing the merchant to add an extra profit to cover losses that are inevitable; losses, as everybody knows, are borne not by the mer chant, but by those who pay their bills promptly, and the poor, who, from necessity, must pay cttsh as they go ; hence we propose to give the CASH SYSTEM a fair trial, and to assure all that deal .with us that they shall pay only for their oiw goods, and where no losses are to be sustained by reason of bad debts we can afford to and icill work upon a very small margin. About the 15th of February we shall open in our'iNi ROOU, di rectly opposite the Court House door, an entirely new and fresh stock of medium and finest Family (Groceries. We want to keep a First-Class Grocery ir. fi3ry sense of the word ; one where families may depend upon getting ever 'tiing they may need in the grocery line of the best quality and at lowest p.ices.

BEFORE THE JOINT JUDICIARY AND TEMPERANCE COMMITTERS OF THE HOUSE REPRESENTATIVES OF THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF THE STATE OF OHIO, ON THE 10TH DAY OF MARCH, A. D. 1880. ON CONSTITUTIONALITY OF THE LOCAL OPTION ANTI-LIQUOR BILLS, PRESENTED FOR ENACTMENT BY THE TEMPERANCE CONVENTION OF TEMPERANCE CONVENTION OF JANUARY 1ST, 1880. A Convention, composed of male and female delegates from all parties, societies and orders of Temperance advocates and workers in onr State, having' assembled at Colambns on the 1st day of January, A. D. 18S0, to consult, agree upon, and frame such a Local Option Anti-Liquor Law as might be thought best, to be presented to this General Assembly for enactment, concluded to present two Bills for the consideration of this body, differing somewhat in de tail, but agreeing in the essential provisions for which the Convention was called. As it has been argued and claimed by some very respectable authority, that such Bills are unconstitutional, and doubts have been suggested by some members of your Committees as to the constitutionality of the en actment of any Local Option Anti Liquor Law by the General Assem bly of the State, and particularly rs to the constitutionality of the claase in both of the Convention Bills, al lowing the voice of woman, by peti tion or ballot, to be equal to that of man on the enforcement of such law, I appear this evening by invitation, as one of the authors of these Bills, to claim and maintain, by plain ar gument, that in the light of reason and authority, the General Assembly of the State has the power, under the provisions of the present existing Constitution, to enact a Local Option Anti-Liquor Law, in either one of the forms as prayed for by the Tem perance Convention. I. The Delegates of the Constitution al Convention of 1S51, who present ed the present Constitution of the State, for the adoption of the people, in its existing form, following the ex ample and precedents of the Fathers, in the structure of all our American Constitutions, specifically, in the in strument, divided the grant of powers from the people to their Government, and the security of their rights under the same, into a Bill of Eights, Arti cle XVI., and a Schedule ; and then, for greater certainty, subdivided all the subject-matter of reciprocal pow ers and rights, between the people and their Government, which were contained in the above three general classifications, into independent sec tions, in each of which, as a general rule, the protection of some particu lar right of the citizen is independ ently guaranteed, or the grant of power by him or her is specially de fined, limited or denied. In accordance with such plan, in Article IL the powers, duties, rights, limitations and privileges, of the life giving department of all Republican Governments, the Legislative, are enumerated, fully set forth and de fined, in thirty-two Sections, each of which is couched in the most accu rate words of the English language, and the Convention having thus, in like manner, defined and specified in the remaining Articles of the Consti tution, by sections, all other recipro cal rights of the citizen and duties of the State, in other departments of the Government, over the various subject-matters of which the instru ment assumes to take jurisdiction and cognizance, then adds to all the Articles of the Constitution "A Schedule," containing provisions for carryinsr into operation, effect and adoption, such previous Articles of the instrument : and also, among other things, the new, original and independent subject-matter of Sec tion XVIIL of such Schedule, as fol lows : "Section 18. At the time when the votes of the electors shall be ta ken, for the adoption or rejection of this Constitution, the additional sec tion, the following words, to-wit: 'No license to traffic in intoxicating liquors shall hereafter be granted in this State ; but the General Assem bly may, by law, provide against the evils resulting therefrom,' shall be separately submitted to the electors for adoption or rejection, in form fol lowing, to-wit : A separata ballot may be given by every elector, and deposited in a separate box. Upon the ballot given for said separate amendment, shall be written or printed, or partly written and partly printed, the words, 'License to sell intoxicating liquors, Yes,' and upon the ballot given against said amend ment, in like manner, the words, 'Li cense to sell intoxicating liquors, No.' If, at said election, a majority of all the votes given for and against said amendment, shall contain the words, 'License to sell intoxicating liquors, No,' then said amendment shall be a separate section of Arti cle Fifteen of the Constitution. This election resulted : License to sell intoxicating liquors, To -113,237 License to sell intoxicating liquors, Yes.., ,..104,2o5 Majority against License 8,982 At the election held for the adop tion of the Constitution, on the third Tuesday of June, 1851, the foregoing Section 18 of the Schedule adopted by the above majority electors. And, consequently, as pro vided by the terms of submission to the people for adoption or rejection, said additional Section 13 of the Schedule became an amendment, separate section, of Article Fifteen of the Constitution, which, in its caption in the Constitution, reads UA rticle XV. JlisceUaieo us. " This exact analysis, consecutively, of the provisions of the Constitution, as to the powers of the General As sembly, brings the mind of a logical jurist to the inquiry, as to the extent of the special power of the General Assembly over the subject of the sale of intoxicating liquors. 1. The first part of the clause the ISth Section of the Schedule pos itively forbids the granting of a li cense for the sale. 2. The second part provides that the General Assembly may, by liw, provide against the evils resulting from the sale thereof. Now, what is to be the kind, na ture, extent or provisions of such law, and who is to be the judge of the nature and qualities of such law T I answer, the General Assem bly, by the clause, is clothed with power, measured only by the bound aries of its wisdom, to enact Rny law, general or special, to take effect in any manner, at any time or place, and to be enforced by the infliction of any reasonable fines and penalties, as may seem most effective, in the opinion of the General Assembly, for the accomplishment of the object of the ISth Section, to-wit : "the sup pression of the evils arising from the sale of intoxicating liquors." This apparently novel and bold declaration, is not only founded upon the modern, liberal and true con struction, that the Constitution is made for the citizen, and not the cit izen for the Constitution, es another great institution wa3 by Divine au thority declared to be, but such claim of power for the General Assembly upon the subject-matter of the ISth Section of the Schedule, i3 also founded upon the clear and manifest intention of the framers of the Con stitution. In the collocation and adaptation cf the various parts of the Constitution, each to the other, so as to form a perfect structure, according to tust, unity and design would have attach ed the 18th Section cf the Scheduto to the sections of Article IL, the Legislative department, because the subject-matter of each referred to, and comprehend and define, the powers of the General Assembly. But the builders of the terzpli d?d not so design, plan, or do, and for a perfectly plain purpose, they ordain ed that all the other par's be adopted by the people, as aperfectinstrument, without thelSih Section of the Sched ule ; but if snch section were adopte .1, then the builders, in as Apt language as could be uped, declared that such 18th Section of the Schedule should be added to and make the 9th Sec tion of "Article XV. Miscellaneous," and should bo, by intendment, like all the other sections of said Article, wholly independent, eaca of the oth er, and all of which were construct-ed as pillars, around the main ediiice, for its protection, and among such pillars the 18th Section of the Sched ule, separately built and constructed by the separate voluntary voice and labor of a majority of the electors, should be placed apart to itself, in dependent, and outside of the apart ment in which was placed the Legis tive powers a shining column with words encircling the same, as piin as the "cloud by day and the pillar of fire by night," inscribed by the large majority voice cf the electors, that "No License to traffic in intoxi cating liquors shall hereafter be granted in this State, but the Gen eral Assembly, may, by law, provide against the evils resu'ting there from" not by law sul'jsct to the supposed inhibition and limitation of Section 26 of Article II., Legisla tive Department, that "All laws of general nature shall have a uniform operation, nor shall any act, except such as relates to public schools, be passed, to take effect upon tlier ap proval of any other authority th;in the General Assembly, except as oth erwise provided in this Constitution." For, the framers of the Constitution, and the majority of the people, by their vote. Lave expressiy decided and ordained, that such independent shining column should not be shaded or dimmed by aDy of the suppos ed limited powers of Article II, Leg islative Department, but on the con trary, as otherwise provided in the Constitution, by the work of the delegates and the vote of the people, around that column was engraved the words, that the General Assem bly, under the power granted in the clause, by law, any kind of law known to American jurisprudence, and con sistent with the reserved rights and privileges of the citizens, a lav lim ited alone by the wisdom of the Leg islature, might "provide against the evils resulting from the sale of in toxicating liquors." Such is modestly claimed with confidence, to be thi true construc tion of these provisions of the Consti tution, and if so, the General Assem bly may enact a Local Option Law, or any other Anti-Liquor law, for the suppression of the evils arising from the sale of intoxicating liquors, which it may think expedient, and wise, to accomplish that purpese. lbe pow er is boundiess, the remedy suouid be commensurate. II. But if the foregoing construction, which excepts Sec. IS of the Sched ule from the express inhibition and limitation of legislative powers in Sec. 2G of Article II. Legislative Department, should be candidly dis puted, then the question arises whether, in reason or law, there be any inhibition or limitition in Sec. 2G, Article II. Legislative Depart ment, which forbids the General As-1 sembly to enact a Local Option Anti-Ccm'chded on Fourth I'aye. LOCAL OPTION. PLAIN TALK TO THE LEGISLATURE. a : a a ' The Sabina News Wilmington cor respondent says: Over o,0o0 naiues on local ojition peti tions have gone froru tLis county to the Oaio Legislature, and still it ' seems as though our Legislators fear the liquor in fluence more Uiaa ail the moral, religions and temperance combined, or in other Words they only seem to hear and fear the threatacitias of the rum power. JadiT9 King, oar Represent ,tive in the Ohio Legislature, was iu town on Mund.-iir ! Those that talked with him in regard, to mo piur-j.oda jocui option during the present term fee! as the Judge does, that the Legislature is trying to shove it cl un til a more convenient season. -Thi3 may satisfy that boilr, but it won't the temper ance people of the State of Ohio.. They have pa.d year after year the heavy taxes caused by this heliUii trafSa of intoxicating liquors. They have suffered in thousands of ways until, as our forefathers bv British oppression, they have determined to bear . it no longer. The I'iqua Ilelmei also talks plain ly and to the point, in the following pungent paragraphs : Do the people have to beg and im plore forever ? Don't the Legislature of Oaio know what is wanted ? Of course they do. If 100,0'K) names should go" in on a petition a niila long to-morrow, our law-givers would not iaoT a thing more than they know now. They know well enough, to-:-.?, that the great uia3 of the people liave been bound down aud abused fur years by this terrible traSo, aud they want to be free to put it away wuen a miijority so wills, Tuey want the rigut to protect their owa homes and property. Ihey want to be abla to keep temptation -away iroiu their sous. Theydotr't want to be dragged down and spit upon by a fe-v liquor-seuers, wno are not even g.Hd citizens. In a word, they dou't want jug-rule any longer.- Now we don't know what our Leislatcre will do. Bat we do know that uie cred.t and character of that body depends more upon their action ia this one thing than npon any other. Tdky wees elected to do this. The -Republicans could not have elected Charles Foster Governor, nor could they have had a majority in the Leg islature, but for the promise virtually mada actually made by a majority of the pa pers of the State that if they elected their ticket, they could be trusted on this great subject. Tiie Legislature is a plegd ed body. Xne Governor is a pledged man. Dure they violate these pledges that were solemnly made to the people t Senator Eatrekin got a bill through the Senate on Uarcli iih, giving 100 bountyjto all re-enli-ted veteran Union soldiers in Ohio, who are enti tled to it, but havs never received it. After the bill passed, it was discover ed that certain Indianapolis lawyers have by soma means procured copies of the records of enlisted and re enlisted soldiers in Ohio, and that they Lave for months past had their atat9 busy ovr tho State, buvm'g up their bounty claims at from 2-j to 50 per cent, discount The pass age of this bill would be merely aa apr.-cpriatiou for the beneSt of these lawyers. The bill has since b3en reconsidered and laid on the table. The local elections in Maine on llonday went Be publican. Chirga it to Garcelon.
