action wiU be seen and felt in the election next fall, in the shape of an in

A 5ew raying Occupation for Ladies

Lamp being introduced to the public this
Kison, is the most meritorious article ever
ofiered AeenU to make money with. It is
safer, and more convenient than the stu

reputation of being the Safest Lamp made.
It has a clamp to firmly attacli it to a
Sewing Machine, Piano, Organ, Desk, etc
The fear of the ordinary lamp being acci
dentally upset or thrown from the table,
is entirely relieved by this contrivance.
It can be adjusted to throw the light just
where it is wanted to suit the eyes, and
can be converted into a handsome wall
lamp. It has the best argand burner, a
filling indicator, a convenient match box,
and its price is within reach of everyone.
It has been fully tested and editorially en
dorsed by the "Western Christian Advo

'Herald and Presbyter," "Journal and
Messenger," and "Chrutian Standard," the
leading religious papers of Cincinnati, and
is endorued by the Mayor and Postmaster

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
Option law, tne retail liquor tramc in
Ohio might be greatly- diminished, if not
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

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

their provisions, fail to accomplish the
I obiect. because public sentiment is not s
ficientlv strong to demand and enforce their

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
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. ,
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
Fa.n.effrt ?f the frien.d.9 l Temperance
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.
