IIThe Democratic State Convention will meet at
Indiana polls v ednesday. August 9.
"We find the above in the Uaviess County
Democrat The statement is incorrect The
Convention meets on the 2J. The Repub
licans meet cn the 9th.
We trust our friends will bear in mind
that the "American Knights of Ilonor' is
a new Know Nothing organization, officer
ed by Republicans. As the Sentinel pub
lished the full dispatch from Dallas, Tel.,
the other day we will only repeat a portion
of it It concluded as follows:
William Jesse (I rant, formerly a Methodist mln
ister In Kost 8 1. Louis, 111., lately editor of the
Dallas Gazette, and a cousin to General Grant, is
said to have organized the society here, under
the authority of the parent society la wasnington.
and ttiat another Republican leader, well known
in the s-tate. is now out organizing lodges. The
purposes of the society is said tc be tbe defeat of
Catholic Demoe ratic candidates for office. The
exposure Is made on the authority of one of tbe
members of the society, who gave the secrets
Has the Journal no shame that it dares to
speak of the use of money in elections,
thus recalling the infamous use of money
by the Republicans in this State in 1SS0,
when Star Route Dorsey was Secretary of
one Republican Committee and the pro
prietor of the Journal was the Chairman of
another? These worthies still retain their
official positions in the Republican party,
and one of them holds high office under
this Stalwart Administration, and controls,
to a great extent the political patronage
in Indiana. The same pious set probably
contemplate a repetition of the Corruption
of 1SS0, and the talk of the Journal may be
intended to divert attention from their de
signs. We are glad to see the Indianapolis Sentinel
favoring the submission of the prohibitory amend
ment to the people at the November election, and
also opposing prohibition. Rushville Jacksonlan.
That is just what the Sentinel is in favor
of. It demands for the people the privilege
of saying in November what their will is in
regard to prohibition. The issue has been
made by a Republican Legislature, and
forced upon the attention of the people, and
the Sentinel is anxious that the people shall
decide it to suit themselves. The Demo
cratic party of Indiana does not shrink
from the contest nor dodge the issue. Re
pcblicans do both. A Republican Legisla
ture has made an issue which tbe Repub
lican party dare not meet, and the display
of Republican cowardice attracts attention
everywhere throughout the State.
An "Independent" candidate for the next
Legislature is announced by the Booneville
Enquirer on the sole issue of the submis
sion of the prohibitory amendment to a
rote of the people. Does our "Independent"
friend not know that the State Constitution
has already decided the question of "sub
mission?" If thelneit Legislature passes
favorably upon the amendment, the Con
stitution says it mutt be tubmitted to popular
vote. If on the contrary the Legislature
does not pass favorably upon it, the Consti
tution confers no power on that body to
submit it It dies then and there. The
Journal and other Republican papers are
endeavoring to obscure the point, but no
Intelligent man of either party should allow
himself to bo bamboozled by them.
The Democratic State Central Committee met
yesterday and fixed the date for the State Con
vention on Wednesday, August 2, just one week
befüre the Republican Convention meets. There
was a large attendance of representative men of
the Democratic party, and the expression was
general and emphatic in favor of a strong plank
against the submit-too- to the people of the
prohibition amendment. Journal.
What is the use of such foolish lying?
Either you are very ignorant or you must
have a poor opinion of the intelligence of
your readers. The question of "submission'
can not by any sort of a possibility get into
the canvass. The Constitution has removed
it clear out The Legislature "can only vote
on the amendments. It can have no vote
on the question of submission. Tae Con
stitution has decided it, and expressly says
that amendments must be summitled when a
second Legislature has passed favorably
upon them. If the members of the coming
Legislature are opposed to the amendments,
they may feel ever bo willing to submit
them to tbe people; yet the Constitution
stops them right there, and the amendments
fail. Thus the Journal's charge that repre
sentative men of the Democratic party are
in favor of a strong plank against submission
is simply nonsense.
The Republican organs are giving the im
pression that the Democratic party is not in
favor of submitting the amendments to a
vote of the people. This is a very cheap
sort of a lie. The iext Legislature can not
decide to submit or refuse to submit the
amendments. The Republican party and
the Democratic party may "whereas" and
"resolute" until doomsday to submit them
or to not do so, and they are powerless to
influence a question already decided by the
Constitution. The next Legislature must
vote upon the amendments. The Stale Con
stitution has made it obligatory upon that
body, and there is no evading or dodging
the issue. If a majority of that Legislature
pass favorably upon the amend
Taints then the Constitution says
that they mw( be passed upon
by the people. If the majority of the Legis
lature ae opposed to the amendments, then
no matter ,how members may feel about sub-
mining them to popular vote, they are
powerless to do so. The matter is decided.
The Democratic party invite the fullest and
most exhaustive discussion upon the amend
ments during th coming canvass, so that
members of the Legislature may be fully
instructed by their constituents as to their
duty in regard to them. The party is most
emphatically in favor of ascertaining the
will of the people in the manner contem
plated by the Constitution, and in carrying
that will into execution.
ROBERT DALE OWEN ON CONSTITU
The fact is not likely to be generally denied
that Robert Dale Owen was recognized as a
leadingspiritin the Convention which framed
the present Constitution of Indiana. On
pace l,2jy pf the second volume of Consti
tutional Debates, on the provision in refer
ence to amending the Constitution, as to
what it meant, Mr. Owen is reported as fol
"Now I think if It be made Imperative that an
amendment proposed to be made to the Constitu
tion fchall be voted for by two successive Legisla
tures. be drclid with reference to thai purtkulnr
nthjrit, the question will be debated before the
people, and they will send Senators and Represen
tatives with a tp(ciH nrreiwc to Unit qunifutn.
This will be a sufticieat guard against improper
and ill advised amendments."
This is the whole question in a nut shell.
The question of amending the Constitution
will be voted on by the next Legislature,
and it is desirable that the Legislature shall
be advised of the will of the people upon
the subject of prohibition. One Legislature,
without instruction, has voted upon it
Therefore, it is all the more important that
the next Legislature shall be instructed, and
we have Mr. Owen's explicit declaration
that the framers of the fundamental law of
the State intended it should not be amended
unless the Legislature had been elected with
special reference to such proposed amend
ment The logic is convincing, and its force
will be at once admitted by men of all
parties who are willing to be governed by
fact rather than fiction.
In the year 1881 the farmers'of the United
States were unable to produce a full supply
of potatoes, cabbages and beans for the home
market The want of rain during the months
of August September and October is as
signed as the reason for the short crop. As
a consequence, the United States had to im
port potatoes, beans and cabbages. The
books of the New York Custom House fur
nish the following statistics of importations
during the months of January, February
and March, 182, from Great Uritain, France

"ItjWill be seen," says the New York Daily
Commercial Bulletin, "that we imported of
these three articles, potatoes, cabbages end
beans emphatically the food of the poor
to the amount of $l,lH.lS.'t, to which a pa
ternal government kindly added duties of
$311001.20, thus swelling the amount to
$1,428,184.20. What we object t is, not so
much the fifteen cents per bush 1 on potatoes
as to raising of the price of every bushel of
potatoes consumed by the poor over 35 per
cent, for it is manifest that were potatoes
admitted duty-free every bushel would be
fifteen cents cheaper. Another thing strikes
US in this matter. Can some of our legisla
tive Solons er j lain to us why cabbage
should pay a duty of 10 pel- cent, while
sauerkraut, manufactured from cabbage?,
should be imported free of duty? A few of
these anomalies in our present tariff might
be changed; or rather, all food products
should be placed on the free list especially
those articles which are absolutely demand
ed by the poor, whom it is the first and chief
duty of the Government to protect." It is
quite possible that the Tariff Commission
will wrestle with the subject, though tlie
probabilities are not large, since dealers in
potatoes, cabbages and beans, arc not likly to
give the Commissioners banquets or slip $.'0
gold pieces into their pockets "unbeknowns"
The sermon of Rev. A. II. Carrier, of the Fourth
Presbyterian Church, delivered yesterday, is
Vorth reading aud study. The reverend ten tie-
man does not seem to be befouled uoon the issue

era! Assembly, and that is the ch jiee of members
who will agree to the proposed amendment to the
Constitution, in order that the people may have a
distinct and direct vote upon tbem. Tnat is tbe
Some of the boys around the Journal of
fice went to Church on Sunday and found
out what would be "the issue" in the ap
proaching campaign. A larnentablo degree
of ignorance seems to have banked around
the concern. Linen was to be torn and the
ground plowed up unless the amendments
were submitted to the people. We pointed
out in our usual urbane, neighborly manner,
in a stage underwhisper, out of regard for
our contemporary's feelings, that the Con
stitution had already decided the matter
that there was no call 'for excitement and
bluster that an amendment which had been
formerly considered and voted upon
by ' two successive Legislatures viut
be submitted to the people
But no! Nothing would satisfy it The
amendment must be submitted, Constitution
or no Constitution. We winked at our es
teemed Contemporary and made the usual
sign of the craft which freely translated
means "Quit! you are making a donkey of
yourself." The hallucination continued
until Sunday, when Rev. Mr. Carrier's
sermon seems to have opened its eyes just a
little, and it now takes the position that in
order to submit the prohibitory amendment
tothepeople.membersof the next legislature
tnust be cltctrd wha are in furor, of prviibitiun.
The Rep ublican tactics heretofore have been
to say nothing about the prohibitory amend
ment in tbe canvass, and then 'smuggle
it through the next Legislature as they did
through the Lvt one. The Democrats de
mand that a fu?J discussion may be had
during the approaching campaign that
members elected to the Legislature may be
fully posted regarding the debires of their
constituents.' If the la'ier desire that the
prohibitory amendment should become a
part of the Constitution of the State, 'let
them Bend members up to the next Legisla
ture who will vote for them. The time for
discussion has come. Let there be no
dodging the question by the Journal under
the fog bank of " submission." " Submis
sion" aud the rights of the people lie very
snugly ensconced in the breast of the Constitution.
Ma, English Is running for Congrefji upon the
anti prohibition platform. What thst question

The "fellows'' who have no principles, or
who are afraid to express them, like the
"fellows" who nominated Peelle, may not
be able to "tindout" but intelligent fearless
people, who have correct opinions and tne
manliness to express them, understand the
matter thoroughly. The latter class will
only support for office at the next election

Opposition to the fanatical ides, of prohibi
tionwhether in the State or Nation, and
they are entirely satisfied with both Mr.
English's record and the platform on which
he is making the race. He is no hypocrite,
neither is his party hypocritical. They say
what they mean and mean what they say,
and will receive the support of those
who are sincerely opposed to prohibition
Resides it is well known that prohibition
can, in various ways, have a bearing on Con
gressional legislation and that matters con
nected with the subject have already been
proposed there. Congress provides for a
revenue to support the Government, and
doea not the Herald know that a large por
tion of it is derived from a tax levied by an
act of Congress upon spirituous and malt
liquors which .would be materially lessened
if not destroyed by prohibition? And doea
not the Herald know that it has recently
been proclaimed by a leading Republican
Governor that it is the intention of the Re
publican i arty to make prohibition Na
tional? Governor Ct John, of Kansas, said
in a speech at Leavenworth recently:

And does not the Herald know that Mr,

mechanical, chemical and scientific pur

the United States and Territories, and their
importation and exportation thall be pro

posed amendments are:

far as the question of submitting is con

it muri he tubmitted if the coming Legisla
ture adopts it; and when a Democratic or a

Senator Miller, of Mew York, on the Chi
fWtsalngton Letter to Albany Journal.
The best argument I have heard on the
suojeciot cninese immigration, better than
any oi tue Fpeecncs in congress, because it
is the whole truth in a nutshell, was a very
lniormai one by your senior Senator in his
own parior ana in a private conversation.
Senator Miller said: "The matter is simply
this: The Chinese are a race who

4,000 years without ever having

They do not comprehend nor afliliate with
tne American system. Tbe impression that
j-.astern manufacturers (1 speak as one of
them) want cheap labor is entirely errone-
ous. natmey want is intelligent labor

siock iu fchoola and Churches, and. if thev
were actuated only by selfish motives, even
on tnat ground they would want a class of
laborers that are larrre consumers as well as

there control more acres than anv lord

possible, but it would not he with Cauca
sian labor. The overwhelming sentiment
in norma on tins question means a pro
test by the ereat body of her citizenship
apasnsc tuts ictiiiai despotism. Caucasian
laborers Jin our broad country will not be
contented to work in gangs on a great
owners iana. ah American citizen's first
ambition is to own a little land himself.
As fast as he gets the money he puts it into
sixty or 120 acres, and makes a honieof his
own, and represents in the commonwealth
a wife and children by his
vote. The Chinef-e has no such sanctity
in his life here. He represents a
cheaper civilization. He fills the place of a
man with better anchorage. The race is
dririog out and keeping out white laborers
from the Pacific Coast, which would in
course of time become an integral part of
our responsible American citizenship the
noblest manhood of the world. Their jres
enca is. doing for California what African
imjKirration did for the South establishing
an aristocratic and a very servile class.
While the teligious denominations of the
East are denouncing the Chines:e bill as
preventing by its operation the oppor
tunity for Christianizing the Chicere,
taey forget that it was the same old argu
ment tbat was used by the apologists for
slavery ihat it was a mercy to take the
poor African out of his own jungles and
bring him here to enjoy the opportunity of
religious instruction, and th'visrh a s!av to
be a converted man. with his eternal sal
vation secured to him through his transfer.

oration of that portion of our people coining
in contact with a race who may be oppressed
without redress a race politically inferior
is a greater e vil, by the development of the
worst traits in cur fallen human nature,
than is compensated for by the alleged good
received by the other party. It was. inj
theb juth; it is to-day in California. The
same ciass rf sentimentalists, by their false
alarm about freedom of conscience in relig
ious belief, prevented the stamping out
of Mornionism thirty yearj a.o, when it
was numerically, weak. Had we done this
duty then a great trouble and danger now
confronting us might have been averted. If
Congress had waited before taking any ac
tion till a million or two of Chinamen were
here on 0115 shores, the question probably
could only have been solved by a war of
races. This is our own country, for which
our fathers have fought, and for which we in
this gencation have fought I want to see
it reserved as a field for tbe fullest envelop
