HARSHA & SON.
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

THURSDAY, - - MARCH 18, 1880
JAS. H. THOMPSON, OF HILISBORO,
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
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
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
"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,
License to sell intoxicating liquors,
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
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
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.
PLAIN TALK TO THE LEGISLATURE.
The Sabina News Wilmington cor
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

traSo, aud they want to be free to put it

Tuey want the rigut to protect their owa

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

Union soldiers in Ohio, who are enti

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
