With regard to the liquor license: on the 22d page, and chapter 4. section 6, of the city ordinance, it reads as follows: “ Every person having such license who shall vend, sell or give a why any spirituous, ardent or intoxicating liquors on any Sunday or any general, annual or special election day, shall be liable to prosecution under this act of the ordinance of the city, or may be indicted in the circuit court of lowa County, under the laws of the state, and upon conv ion thereof any such offender shah forfeit and pay a sum of not exceed!'.g two hundred dollars nor less than fifty dollars, to be imprisoned in the jail of lowa county or in the jail of said city not more than thirty days, at the discretion of the court: and the license held by such persons shall be forfeited and void.” Some time ago the ladies of this city asked, prayed and petitioned the city authority for the enforcement of such law, but it has been openly violated every Sunday, eve . 1. drunk en men were n •' 'oiough our streets.

If all the liquor manufactured in 1 Peoria. 111., in one year could be pack-1 cd into freight cars as liquor is ordi- j narily packed, the train would reach from Peoria to New York City and 15 j miles out to sea. A Prohibition Denial. Editor Democrat: As you are aware, republicans and republican or gans still accuse democrats and pro hibitionists with the crime of conspir acy against the “grand old party.” Very recently a republican journal in j its editorial complained of the manner 1 in which democrats patted prohibition- j ists on the back, simply because the j latter were helping the former to de- j stroy said g. o. p. Now Mr. Dem-1 ocrat, if it were true that such com- ' plicity actually existed, it could scarce-1 ly be pronounced praiseworthy unless, j indeed, it were proved that under pres ent management the g. o. p. is a bad j party. Such proof may be produced < more easily than some appear to think.: But such complicity does not exist be tween the parties named, and every intelligent man knows it. Who would dare to be so unjust, to be such a falsi fier, as to accuse such men as John B. Gough, Joseph (’ouk, the great Bos ton lecturer. President Bascom, John Dougall, hue editor of the N. Y. Weekly Witness, John B. Finch, J. H. Garrison, Sr. editor of Ohristain Evan gelist, together with a large majority of our best educators and noble min isters of the gospel—accuse such men simply and solely of aiming at the destruction of some great party. No, these grand men never recognized it to be the principal end or aim in view for the people to either build up or tear down some gigantic party. Party is only a means to an end. it is organized for the purpose of per forming some important work, and if it is to be broken up, it is merely for the purpose of removing a barrier to our national progress; and anew party is to be organized to carry on the work which it refuses to do. The independ ent thinker, the patriotic citizen, will, as nearly as may be, at the polls, reg ister his real convictions on great political questions, whether he be in accord with the great mass of voters or with a very small minority. He investigates without prejudice, if it i be possible, and then acts upon his j convictions of duty without reference to what some other man or organiza tion may do. He does not hang to I party whether right or wrong, as re-1 publicans accuse democrats of doing. ] He does not slavishly fellow some other man's lead. The need of the ! hour is a large addition to the mini-! her of such genuine patriots, the re- : suit of which will be a healthy growth i of the prohibition party. ’Tis extreme parly zeal will the seoiet reveal, Why republicans oppose prohibition; And the democrats too with the same narrow view Allow Satan to hold his position. Yet they all surely know that the grog-shop ' must go. For the sake of our homes and our nation: Then will drunkenness cease and the country have peace, And all anarchy receive condemnation. Then let democrats fall in and help fight’gainst the sin Of the ruinous traffic in liquor; And republicans fight on the side of the right, j To obtain abolition the quicker. Abolition from fears, from heartaches and tears, Abolition from much that’s unsavory— From the cause of deep sighs, and the hungry child's cries. Yea. from worse than was African slavery.
