unite in the following declaratioa of
rnnciples :
. That while we acknowledge the
pure patriotism and profound statee
mansbin of those rat riots who laid
I'road and deep the foundations of this
fvremment, ectmng at once the
right of the States severally and their
inseparable union by the Federal Con
stitution, we would not merely garnish
the spulchers of our republican lath
era, but we dr hereby renew our sol
emn pledge of fealty to the imperish
able principle of civil and religious
liberty embodied in the Declaration of
American Independence and our Fed
eral Constipation.
2. That the traffic in intoxicating
beerag9 is a dishonor to i'hristian
rivilizalAm. inimical to the best inter
ests of soriety, a political wrong of uti
equaled enormity, subversive of the
ordinary objects of government, not
r ipeble of being regulated or restrain
ed by any system of license whatrer,
Vut imperatively demanding for its
suppression effective legal prohibition
both by State and National Lefiela
fon. 2. That in view of this, and inasmuch
a the existing political parties either
ppsse or ignore this great and para
mount question, and absolutely refuse
tr do anything toward the suppression
ef the rum traffic, which is robbing the
station of its brightest intellects, des
r.tyfngrU material prosperity, and ra
pidly ndUrmining its very founda
tions', we are dViven hr an imperative
sense of duty to sever oar connection
with these political parties, and to or I
ganiae ourselves into a National Prohi
bition Party, having for its primary
object the entire suppression of the
traffic in intoxicating drinks.
4. That while we adopt the name of
the Nation tl Prohibition Tarty, as ex-
r"ive of our primary object, and
while we denounce all repudiation of
te public d-bt. and pledge fidelity to
the principlVs of the Declaration of In
dependenn and" tKe FedVTPCwtit
t 'on, we deem it inexpedient to give
prominence to other political issues.
5. That a Central Executive Commit

appointed by the Chair, whose duty it
r'iaIT be to take such action as in their

that, in the pest, be has ""changed

rins and see if they anstaia him
in his claims. We will notable the
reader, and we assoM - the .Pudge
w hre pome, to take anything
irt the Judge's own story into cob
ridentwn. ..
Tb d way with the-effect of our
etnemenrof last week, .which he
rdmit to be true, tfiwl he has only
sentenced four out of fourteen tic-l-.tors
of the liquor lawrttT jail in
Muskingum county, ho assert that
I e did not establish, the . rule to
make imprisonment a part of the
sentence in such cases nnlil the
January Term, 187IR In the next
to the last paraj-raplrof his article,
he admits that he never, before or
since the establishment of the tile,
sentenced a man in Afaskingttrn
entity to more than ten days in-
urisonment. nor to par a fine- of
more then fifty dollars. Now, not
withstanding- tbat there has not
been anvotie tried before him fer
violating the liquor lair in Morgan-
ronnty sine he claims to hare es
tablished the rule, yet be confesses
le sentencing one of our eilizent to
twenty days imprifeonrnefit. another
Po-fifteeni and to assessing lines M
hi'eH ara hundred dollars, and to
iiavinj sentenced -wit Ifoble county
man to jtil for thirty days and to
j a j a fine of one hundred dollars.
Here, then, we have lira confessing
to imposing double and- tVetfte the
penalties in il organ and!lfob!e un
der a lenient roJe that he. imposes

that some el those he sentenced in
U askingutu were not only 'old of
fenders, but Wera amongst the
worst characters ever in Idnakin;
im county, but the Judge don't
think this neet Mary to be mention
ed. Everybody will admit that
Muskingum county has been cursed
by the Liquor Traffic to fourfold
the extent that Morgan or Noble
kas, and it occurs to us that a Judge
not influeLced by the pupo'artty
or unpopularity of the measure,
wo4d make bis greatest ezamplea
where they are most needed. We
think this settle the qnestion as to
the "changing of horses," and art
willing to submit it to the people
with one more nuggestionf te-w;t:
It is exceedingly strange that the
Judge is regarded in askings m as
favoring a License law, and in No
ble and Morgaa as being almost a
Prohibitionist. These positions are
irreconcilable, and we ounnot ac
tottnt for the Judge occupying both
oftbeta on any other hypothesis
than that somebody has been de
ceiving the people most shamefully
in one locality or the other. If the
Judge's "friend are resp'ohSl'trl
for this elate of affairs, we advise
him to revise hit list. The people
judge of s man at Le is put before
them by bit "friends."
Wt would olost here were it not
tbat the Judge porsistt in claiming
that wt asserted he was guilty of
neglecting bis duty to an extent
teas would render him liable tt re

Prosecuting Attorney of Masking

with set using hit fall official pow

of liquors in Unsklngtm eonnty,
which it was necessary for him to
do to be consistent with bis advo
cating temperance, aad wt admit
ted at the same time that be fulfill
ed the lettsr of the law. The Judge
charges the Prosecuting Attorney
of Muskingum county with not d
:ng hut duty, At the safflf time ad
mitting that the Prosecutor fills tlie
letter of the law; yea, be even goes
far in his cbargt agaiset tbe
Proeecvter in hie letter of last Week,
to call on the people not to re
elect him if they desire the liquor
law to be enforced, this, too, before
u known whether or nt there
will be an opposing candidate that
will aww himself reaJy and willing
do bit-duty. Certainly, now, if
our charge against the Judge was
the character that fie represents
the Judge's charge against the
Prosecutor mast be subject tt the
same objection; and if w are cen
surable in tbt ent instance, the
Judge must be censurable in the
other. To fact is, however, that
there is a vast difference between
tficer's barely Hbvg the letter

full powers of bis official position.
Wbils it is tbt duty of every eit-

Another Letter from Judge

to the Ptople of Morgan Omntyi
Pecans 1 tried to be brief in my
letter of April 1st, ths Editor tf the
tnitpenient, (late Consertatibe,) bss
misunderstood the intent ot that
letter, and as I fsar soma of you
may ao ins use, i aeem it necessa

On March 31st the Conservative
charged that I did my duty as Judge
in Morgan and Noble Where tern-
Seraoee waa popular, and did not

Was net popular. XI guilty, I de
served impeachment tinder the law,
add coBtettpt among all honorable
men. To this charge only was my
reply directed, although incidental
ly tbe Caldwell lecture was referred
to. My only object in writing was
to show that my conduct was tbe
same in Muskingum as In the other
counties, and 1 related my action
as rrosscaung Aiiernev wna ro
thought of frurpose of showing that
l Was a temperance man, but salely
for the purpose of showing tbat
when it km my duty to prosecute
those who violate tbe liquor law in
Muskingum county, I did it openly
and earnestly and without regard
to popularity. I nave never Claim

I bate never sought opportunities

occasion tttcto it proper to talk on
that subject, 1 have spoken my
thoughts just as I do on any sub
ject of interest. In Morgan, I have
deprecated tbt political action cf
tht rrobiDiwonieu astreely in con
versation with aembsra of that

ingum 1 bave expressed ttyfegfet
tbat violators of the liquor law were
net so prosecuted as to force obedi

may attack me upon that branch of
the anestion as often asthev nlease.
and 1 Will not reply except at my
daily life may make reply. Nei
ther do I proposs to discusst tht
wisdom or legality of my Judicial
ads. I only wish to snow that I
have not "changed bertet as I
changed counties"; that my action
In Muskingum hat bttn tht sams
as it was is Morgan and Noble.
rbe reader, if 1 have any, will
please bear in mind that I write
for thrt single purpose, and for
frothing else.
As it might bt etaimecf ttat the
failure oj the Prosectttfng: Attorney
and Grand Juries of Mmkingnm to
indict 2airsv?lre Vrolatore of tht
liquor law called for seme further
action by me in that county, to
show that I discharged my duty as
zealously there aa elsewhere, 1 sta
ted what 1 conceived to be tbe du
ties and powsrs vt Judge. To
show that I spots from the bench
ae plainly there astltewbere, I sta
ted that I bad announced in Mus
kingum with more emphssrs than
in tire other eovatres that as a gen
eral rule I would make imprison
ment a part of the sentence. I did
not name the date of that declara
tion because I supposed tho Editor,
is a fkwyer, knew wten 1 made it
m Morgan. But for his paper of
(bis day. be tfeats it sf made at tbe
beginning of my term, and says 1
only sentenced four out of fourteen
tojaiL The declaration of that
rule, as a rule, was not made nctil
tbe January term, 1870, sltbough I
bad previouely announced tbat 1
contemplated its adoption, and
aince that term in that eeunty, my
sentences to jail hate been two out
of three, and the one not ssnt to the
jail was a widow woman. I will
procure from the clerks of the three
eounties lists of my sentences du
ring rnj entire term aad wilt eend
then to tht .Editor, accompanied
by aw abstract of tbe same, and de
sire that either the complete fist or
tUo abstract be published at toe
end of tbit letter, so that jou can
judge whether 1 bave been more
tender in fif nskingum than in Mor
gan or Nobles
Here I inrshf close, but the BJi-
tor asks two questions to
hicn I
will make very brief answers.
First, ht arks, cannot tbt Judge
tend Grand Juries back to- their
rooms and refuse to discharge tbera
unless tbsy do their duty? He
can; bnt before he does so the Jndge
must bave legal evidence of their
neglect,- Tbe Grand Jury are lo
gaily bound to examine such wit
nesses as are ealleJ by the Pirosecu
ting Attorney- or named in a Jus
tice's transcript; or suggested to
them by tome person making com
plaint; or suegestetXU them by fc
Giand Jnror through hit own
knowledge or information, (not
mere suspicion)! or suggested in
tbt evidence of tome Other Witness.
The Judge can only knew what tht
Grand Jury does or fails to do in
discbarge of this duty or examin
ing by being informed By tbe Pros
ecuting Attorney, or by tht Fore
man ox oUeraember of the Grana
Jury, or by aome person making
complaint; and no member of tbe
Grand Jury can-inform tbt Judge
or any lact except at may state that
the business- bar not been comple
ted and protest against a discharge,
be may cay tbat such arid' such
witnesses have not boon examined,
or that tvidenee bar been heard
tbat catlrfor air indictment which
hat ntt been fonnd. No complaint
of any kind hat ever been made to
me, or in my court, against any
Grand Jury or Grand Juror, and I
bavt ner yet bad a legal right to
refuse tt discharge any Grand Ju
ry. Second, ho ask; Can ntt the
Judge appoint? Prosecuting Att'y
without removing tht one elected
bt tbe people? Tht lew says an
appointment can bt made of an As-J
siatant rrosecuting Attorney when
tho Court "iWnks it necessary to
assist the Prosecuting Attorney in the
trial1 of any ease pending before said
Comrt". Swan A Baylor, p. 524.J.
mis power is it appoint aa assis
tant to assist tn a trial of a ease al
ready ponding. Of course tbis assis
tant bat nothing to do with tbt
Grand Jurv. On page 1153, Swan
A Critchfield, tbe Court It empow
ered to, "whenever in the opinion
of any Judge tbt public interests
require it," appoint "an Assistant
Prosecuting Attorney to aid in tht
prosecution of such offense aa to tht
Court Shall seem proper." As I un
derstand mis section, it relates to
tome specific case, not to all eases
under any specified law; and before
tbe Judge can so appoint be must
be informed of tbe existence of a
charge of crime which cannot or
will not be properly attended to bv
tbe regular Prosecutor. No such
case has ever been brought to my
notice uuder tbe liquor law. but in
two cases of manslaughter I was so
informed, and in each cast I ap-
poiuiea aa assistant.
i i - ...
ao cuEciuBion i win anggest as
matter for thought merely, (for I
win uuir ocreaner aiscuss it or re
ply to anything that may be urged
against it,) the following :
The law provides Judzet. Prose
cuting Attorneys and Grand Juries,
not as different members tf a Po
lice to act upon suspicion of crimi
nality, but to act toon com
plaint made by some body. How
ever strongly a Justice- Of the
Peace mar suspect a man Of enme.
be Can issue no warrant for bis ar
rest unices some tArr person first
makes the affidavit required by law.
Tbe Prosecuting Attorney must
conduct all suits in which the State
a pri-ty, but it is not made hie
duty fcj say trAen a suit shall be be
gun. II complaint be made be
must move. Tbe Grand Jury must
"diligently inquire," but that does
not mean tbat they are to go around
asking for witnesses. When thev
know, or bave reasonable ground to
believe that A. knows A Taw bas
been violated, they must tend for
A. and examine bim. There ta a
dnty restiug upon tbe peoplo: Tbe
man who bas tbe means of inform
ing the PVoseeuung Attorney, the
Grand Jury or the Magistrate,
ought tt do it. Wbtn tamest tem
perance men make complaint at
cording to law, and a Prosecuting
Attorney or Grand Jury fails to
attend to such complain then" the
misconduct must be mndt known
the Judge in tbe manner provis
ded by the law. If the Judge then
neglects or refuses to !o what the
law givee bim power to do by Way
punishment for the neglect, then
win Detne time to accuse the Judge,
before the veonle. of misconduct 10

Although I Write to MeConnels

my sentences' in liquor cases, and
asked that they be aent me by
Monday's mail, nono have come to
hand yet, and it is now noen of
Tuesday.- I wrtl, therefore, state
from my recollection: Total num'
ber of sentences in Muskingum,
fourteen. There were more in No
ble than in Muskingum, and more
Morgan than in Noble, in iltrs-kmgum-,
fonr persons Weft Senten
ced to jail for ten days each; in .No
ble three persons were sent to jail,
(two for ten days each, and en, an
old- and incorrigible offender, for
thirty daysj; fn if organ four or five
were seftteuced te jail, one for twen
days, (keeping a room.) one lor
fifteen days, and others tor ten dtys
each, Tbe two for twenty and1 fif
teen days were men, who beeidto
having bad casus, aggravated them
by the kind of defi asts presented
eoert. 1 am unable lo remera
bo? the fines, but they ranged in
Muskingum from 110 to 50;- rn No
ble from SIO to 8o0, and in one case,
that of the old offender, 100- in
Morgsrr from 15 to ?50. except in
one case, or perhaps two, when the
fine for keeping a room was $100.
Aa to Noble and Morgan, I write
from recollection merely. As to
MnekingeTt, my statement is made
up from the record.
Having ftrlly expressed my Viows

which I feel Any concern, I do not
