To the Editor of the Ohio State Journal: I operation of a wise and In the State Jotirnel of last Friday, in an editorial reply to an article in the Chi cago Tribune, I find the following: . "The Tribune in mistaken as to 'local option' in Ohio. It has never been tried here. Tne law of the State prohibits the sale of spirituous liquors, to be drank on the premisea where sold, throughout the Stale. How a vote of the people, under a local option act, can strengthen that stat ute, is inconceivable to every one except the local optionists themselves. And then suppose that the question be submitted in any given towuship, ward or municipality. and a majority votes down prohibition, what is that but licensing the sale within the limits of such township, ward or mu nicipality? In tact, liquor dealers in ci ties and villages would care very little about the passage of a Local Option law, except for the expenses of conducting elec tion campaigns and in litigation to test the validity of such a law. Every statute ever passed for the alleged repression and discouragement of the traffic in intoxicat ing liquors in Ohio has in the end inured to the benefit of the dealers." As an advocate of Local Option, I re spectfully ask the attention of the editor of the State Journal and its readers for a few moments, while I give some reasons for "the faith that is in me," that under the stringent Local Option law, tne retail liquor tramc in Ohio might be greatly- diminished, if not entirely suppressed. Let us stippose, by war of illustration, that a Local Option law has been enacted, and then see how It would work in prac tice, lake the town of Hillsboro, lor ex ample. We will suppose that an election has been held under the law, and that the voters at such election (among whom would include women over twenty-one, for this community, at least, whatever others may do, is ready to take the advanced step of giving woman, the greatest sufferer by the liquor tramc. the right of self-pro tection against its evils, by the ballot) have decided by a large majority, as there is no doubt they would, that no intoxicat ing liquors should be sold in the town, ex that all "saloons" and other drinking shops should be declared public nuisances and closed up, under se vere penalties. jNow, aoes tne editor 01 the State Journal stippose that, in the face of Buch a strong, decided and unmis takable expression of the will of the pen pie of the town, the unlawful traffic could continue to be carried on? On the contra ry, would not every officer charged with I cept for medicinal, mechanical or sacra- mental uses, ana tue execution of the law, feel the pressure of public sentiment so strongly urging him forward to the performance of his duty, that he would hasten to obey the popular wi ? We ,hink there caQ no . ;ong about tne re8Uitl in any community I in the State where the majority against the liquor tramc should be clear and decweu i Ana n ine women over iwemy-une were ni- Iln-orf tn vnto tWe nrf fow towns villapos , ,i,; : ni.in wKi.t, nM w gerty ava;i themselves of the opportunity I afforded by the law, to rid themselves of He terrible curse, which has brought pov , prtff shame and sorrow into so manv homes, and filled the land with the wail ntrs of drunkards wives and eliililren The editor of the State J ournnl no doubt remembers how ancient Jerusalem is said to have been kept so clean. It was done simply by every one keeping his own premixe clean. In like manner, the ettect ol a LiO cal Option law would be to lay the respon sibility for the existence of the liquor traf- fic in every community where a clear ma I . J ...... . jority are against it, right at the door of eacli individual citizen, oy giving mm me nnu-pr tn iret rid of the evil, if disDOsed to do so. 1 thinK, uiereiore, H may De iainy ciaim ed, that in its practical working, a judi cious Local Option law woutd be a rrea advance on our present laws against the liquor' traffic, which, however stringent their provisions, fail to accomplish the I obiect. because public sentiment is not s ficientlv strong to demand and enforce their I execution in the majority of our towns and ,in It ia in order t0 create and strengthen public sentiment, until it is brought up to the point necessary to en force the ia, mat we advocate jyjcai up f. tion. The othe gule Journa, seem8 J a the the nd woman in Ohio fully understand that lo- vpuu.i .s nov ..i.uc, I Peal any iCAisiiUii laws auuiusi. ine think that the failure of any community tote down the liquor traffic under a Local Option law would virtually amount to i: i- :. i. . : .!. uceuse w yvcuxil luts crauiL-, nui u uic law were properly guarded on that point. Any Local Option law should most dis tinctly provide that its operation should not affect the existing laws of the State against the liquor tramc, so that those laws would still remain in force, whatever the result of any election under the Local Op tion law. I think everr temperance man de be low: zero De low. closa im from parte- cor to re traffic, but only to secure additional legislation, which will be more effective. Again, the editor of the State Journal greatly misinformed if he supposes that the liquor dealers ot Ohio caro but uttu whether a Local Option law is passed not. They dread it more than any other Temperance movement that has ever been started in our State, as they have shown the resolutions of their Liquor Alliance, bitterly denouncing Local Option and who support it. They well know that such a law, wisely framed and faithfully executed, would close nine-tenths of the "saloons" and drinking shops in the State inside of twelve months. Again, I must beg leave to differ from my brother editor of the State Journal, whose generally able management of the central Republican organ of Ohio I have the highest respect and admiration, when he says that every statute that has ever been passed in Ohio against the liquor traffic has inured to its benefit. The Adair law, for instance, has done great good, and would have done more had not the liquor influence succeeded In getting it so amend re- . , - -f , i., . -t ... r. , ex the been hun quay of tha citi to a themselves of its benefits, because of public notice they are required to give liq uor sellers before they can posecute damages under the law. And, poorly and inefficiently as our other anti-liquor laws have been executed, they are still some re straint upon the traffic so long as they on the the statute books. In conclusion, I trust the editor of Slate Journal will give the influence his able pen and wide circulation in favor of the Local Option movement the last State of from Fa.n.effrt ?f the frien.d.9 l Temperance of was at in Ohio to place our noble State more near ly abreast with the foremost of her sister States in wise and efficient legislation against the greatest social evil of the day, as now -admitted bv our leading statesmen and philanthropists intemperance and the liquor traffic- "twiu relics of barbar ism," mutually feeding and supporting each other the most prolific sources crime and poverty and degradation, and therefore the deadliest foes to human hap piness and the peace and order of society.

The telephone, in so far as the transmission of sounds is concerned, is said to be the invention of Professor Elisha Gray, of Chicago, but the patents covering the essentials of the transmittuiR 'apparatus are claimed by Professor Bell. The matter is similar to that withregard to the invention of the electric tele graph, the invention being cininiod as the real work of Professor llemy, while Professor Morse reduced it to practice and reaped the material reward.
