THE TIEMERIMAME NVEIEIT. SI couteon ed by tih Lde of the teo eonsidlerbls prsomiasee in this sad -mu other paete of the State, that it Is free fi that ephemsesl charsetsr which has be a distintgashlng characteristic of refor of this kind. We believe it to be true that the orgye satlla s now constituted bas eszised wit out material chasse for yeas, ezept in slow and steady increase of membershi and that much good has been done in qul work. The number of United'Friends Temperanee is rather larger tbha thbse o side are aware of; yet they are compos we may say e hiey of church members, a ready we believe vowed to temperance I reason of their religious obligations. V observe no perceptible dlminution in tl habits of communities generally, so far the support of liquorselllog establishmen are concerned. But many parties promi int as reformers feel that the time bas con for more active work, and are beginning agitate, by means of petitions to to. councils and police Juries. the question. sale or no sale of intoxicating liquors-ti local option law which prevails in tb State furnishing the means of testing by vote of th peopl their inclinations as 1 the licensing of houses to retail liquor I incorporated towns and in wards. Thee of course can be but one opiulon amnon the best clam of people as to the mai question lovolvecd-that in, the regulatlio of the mausalcture, use, and traffme i it tolicating beverages in uch a Insntier a to prevent the disastrous effects of inteu perauce. But as to the how, thIers na reasonably be mluch honest differeiees c opinion. One man is of opinion that a ver, large license should be inposed and ith matter regulated in this manner. Anothe thinks that dratkeuneese shonld eo made rime. Still another that thu drinking mnt hbould prreure a license, and yet anothel thinks that the seller should be held rrsun ible in damnages for the loss, the peverti old destitlution which attach to the drunk rl' fa tily by reason of his habits.
