Di Campbell during the Locul Option campaign in Atchison County. Read it carefully : "The Local Option law has been handed down, to us by the representa tives of a great state which in politics is Democratic, with the endorsement as a law worthy a great and free peoplo.and with Ihe approval of a Governor, al-o a Democrat, and yet some gentlemen would have us believe l hat the law is undemocratic, that tho representatives of this Democratic state were treacher ous to the people whom they represent ed and the Governor recreant to the trust reposed in him because thev pass ed and be approved a law which is so stringent, so obnoxous and so hateful that the people could not vote for it and adopt it at Ihe polls. This is- far- f eichcd, and this attempt to slander the Democratic government of Missouri is unworthy the gtntlemen who utter such. sentiments, and so, I trust, will bo your verdict at the pulls on the 6th ef Sep tember next. I hold that this law, ema nating lroni the source it has, aud with Ihe endorsement it has received at the hands of the Democrats before it came to us, that I, as a Democrat, as well as a citizen, may not only consistently, but enthusiastically suppott its evety feature to the end, that by so doing some of the evils of intemperance may be restricted and our grand old county 6tarted upon u higher plane of prosper ity and greatness; not become the liar boring place ol all the hoodlums, thugs ana criminals that ever hover around the open saloon and the open whiskey guzzling rum holes of every com mini iiy. Let us not make Atchison county the asylum of all the refuse population oi the counties und states around us. that by votes have closed up tho saloons and whiskey selliiiir places of vice. I his is our bounden dtitv. In order hat all may vote advisedly, permit me to say, in the language of the Supreme Court of Ibis ktate. Tlir sale of intoxicating liquors is by law il legal antl Is not a lirivilrge oi a citizen of this or any other state. Tlie right to sell can only no acnuired by complying with tuo law. (1837.) loth iliwiun report, page sal. From this decision it will be noticed that our liberties, about which we bsar so much, have been tampered with by this great stale since 18:1", and yet some gentlemen are bowling llietn celvrs hoarse because the "powsrs that be" have submillcd the Local Option proposition, which they say takes our liberties away from us. This they kuow is untrue, for ihey can still gulp down all the liquid damnation which sceinem goou to inera. out tnuy never had the right to sell it to their neigh bors except under the hampering pro ceedure of the ltw, law which has ever treated tie saloon keeper as a danger ous individual, surronuding him with all manner of restriction unknown to other trades or callings. Therefore, let us hear no more of "personal liber ty." Again I quote from our own Supreme Coutt: iaciurcr ana u exempts him from any license, it is a special act applying to him, and is not repealed and will not be under Loeal Option. But here is another law about liquors, relating to druggists, also a special act : No druggist or pliarmackt shall directly or itutlrcclly sell or otherwise dispose of anv kiud of intoxicating liquors in any quantity less than one gallon for any purpose except on written prescription, etc., except wine for sacramental purposes, &c, sc. Session acts 18S3, pags, s). This is the special law which relates to druggists and which allows them to sell under proper restrictions. There is still another law which reads as fol lows: of Section MfiO, Kctlsed Statutes of 1879.

' , A physician who administers intoxicating liquors in good faith as a medicine Is not within the statute of I81, on page 6t., which reads: "Xo person shall directly or indirectly sell in toxicating liquoro without biking out a license nsagioccrordratu.shiip. keeper." 19 Mo. re port, page 11. Now notice that that statute rends "n person," yet the Supreme Court held that it did not app'y lo a physician who dministered it as a medicine in good faith. hy? I answer, because the law was never intended to mean Mm And the time never was in this state, (and will not be under Local Option,) when a phjsician could not prescribe or sell liquor as a medicine forhtsown patients at pleasure and take pay for such liquors for the good reason given by the Supreme Court in the case cited tbat a phyeician admin istering liquors as a medicine was not within the statute nnd if uot within that statute, pray tell me how a physician could be within the Local Option statute? Nonsense; it does not. Tbat physician violated no law and your family physician vio lates no law in honestly giving it as a medicine, although the law can be sa sweeping as lo say "no person," for such a law wh meant to cover lever age or dram-shop selling, not me dicinal use selling. So it will be tinder Local Option liquor may be bad from your family physki.in in ca3e l "snake biles," the language of the demagogue to the contrary not withstanding. Now I reler you to our Revised Stat utes ol li79: No pers-n sh.tll dlreetly or indirectly soil In toxicating liquors in any quantity less than one gallon without taking out a dram-shop license. Section No. 5ttl. Now this refers wholly to beverage selling by all persons and so says, it is sweeping In its nature, makes no ex ceptions, but still it does not prohibit the family physiciau any more than the statute of 1815. Bat here is anoth er Statute of 1879: Intoxicating liquors may be sold in any quan tity, not less than one gallon, at the place where made, but the maker or seller shall not permit er suffer the same to be drank at tlie place of sale, nor at any place under the cen tral of either or both. Section No. and Session acts of 1883. page 16 . Now, that law is for the ina.nn- Ueticc, it will be seen that we have one general law, as we will hvc under Local Option, but also tbat there is a statute lor the luauufaciurcr, a special statute for the merchant and wine grower and one lor the druggist or pharmacist. It is under these special statutes that the manufacturer, the wine-grower aud the druggist have been selling iu the past, although the general law reads that "no person, &c." should sell ithout taking oat a license, and these parties can still se.l according to the same special statute when Local Option law is adopted, which wid take the place of the general law that licens ed dram-shops. In other words, in the past the genuial law piohibited all persons from selling without a 11 cense, jet tucse parties could sell un der their special statutes, aud the courts held that ihe general law did not apply to tuctu and was nut meant fur them. Reasoning from the same analogy, Lo cal Option U nut intended for I hem, al though it, Iiku the general tiw, reaus iu general tcruis of "no pers n." The Local Option law is a general law which takes the place of Section No. 5l:Ju't ll-j vised Statutes, but it docs not even purport to repeal auy other law or statute whatever, and in the absence of any reptaliug clause how is it possible that either the wine law, the druggibt law or the law authorizing the manu facture of liquois of all kinds can be re pealed by Local Option And the answer is, they are not repealed, because there is but one way in which a law may be repealed other than an express repeal ing clause in a subsequent statute, and that is by implication. And to prove that neither of these special statutes are repealed by implication if Local Option is adopted; I refer to ihe able opinion of Judge Edwards, published in tho Agitator of recent date, as that opin ion applies with equal force to each ot Ihe special statutes as to tbat which protects druggists and pharmacists. I might add that the Supreme Court of this state has frequently held that the adoption of a general law docs no', by impncalion, repeal a special or particu lar law then in forco. That all may vote intelligently we ask the voters to examine ihe language of ihe Supreme Court, bearing in mind that the Local Option law is general and that these other statutes are special and applicable to a particular class and to those particular persons only. I quote !:oni tho Stiprrinu Court and give the authorities tbat all may examine for themselves: The general law must yield to the particular provision. 3S Mo. reports, page.:?;.

We very much regret that efforts hive been made to mislead the voters ot the county by all sorts of misstate ments as to the intent and object of the law which is as it says in Its titles An act to pravide for the preventing of the evils of Intemperance. It is not an act to prevent the procur ing of liquor in the case ol "snake bite,' not an act to prevent the buying of a gallon of wine of the wine-grower, tot an act to prevent tha buying ot a gallon er less of any cider; not an act to pre vent the buying from the manufacturer of a gallon or more of any liquors, to drink wh.re and when at pleasure of the buyer, but it is an act to prevent the evils of intempcranco by closiu up the open saloon and as a result stop ping the card tables, the pool tables billiard tab.'es and gambling, and the fostering of crimes not necessary to mention, but known to all. It will s.op me peuaung oi tne vile stuff over the country during elections and other times; the giving of it to children inth back alleys, and in a word throws around the weak and the innocent that protection to which tbey are entitled It is a law which appeals to us all alike and should receive the endorsement of us ail, not only the man who is addicted to his cups, but the saber citizens, the fathers, mothers, and all of us. 1 might add that the law docs not change the relation of the druggist to the sale of intoxicating liquors, leaves him under the same rest notions as now,. only enlarges his t ight to sell lor art, mechanical, medicinal and scientific purposes, pure alcohol without a pie scription and wine for sacramental pur poses. Of tho right to make and tell cider, I may add mat it u too insignificant to talk about. Cider is not an intosica ting liquor under the statute and never was. It is nut a drink containing alco hot iu the rueauing of any law in chris- . i i . . teiuiom, aua no man ever heard ot an- otbar being arrested lor selling it, In reference to giving a drink ot wine to a guest in one's own tamity, I will say that a recent decision in s court in auother slate, has been made to the ef. feet that a man's guests are a part of his own lamily. and no law ever invades tha sanctity of the table, or Ihe family circle, and such nonsense is but a sub terfuge, talked to make votes against a law the intent of whicb, "To prevent the evils of intemperance," ninst chal lenge the support and endorsement of every moral and upright citizen. Id this I am sure we mut agtee." After Mr. Campbell con-luded bis address, tlie above of which is a irood report, Hon. John P. Lewis made an able addiess which was loudly applaud ed. In his address he endorsed the legal opinion of Mr. Campbell, saying tbat he bad carefully examined the law and it was able and lo the point con taining the law as. he understood it. Wo give this thus fully that all may understand and have the authonties for backing. The opposition are pjjhed for arguments as they have to make such foolish statements as tbey have in the past, which are nut backed in law ar fact. THE WINE GROWERS. Opinion of IIou. J. P.

Under this general law standing on the statute druggist, winegrowers, merchants and the manufacturers of in toxicating liquors have been selling lor years, according to their special laws, not taking out a dram shop license, and in doing eo they violated no law and were never prosecuted, nnless tbey sold contrary to their special acts and the restrictions governing them under those special acts. If Local Option is adopt ed these parties can continue to & as bcfoie under tbe same restrict tons. Understand that Local Option will give them no new powers, except to drug gists in the sale of pure alcohol, but it will take no power away from these parties. It sinp'y is a law which closes A few persons have been saying ibat if tbe Local Option law should be adop ted, it would preclude the giving away of ajg'ass of wine in families to guests, or even to members of tbe family. This is too absurd to consider seriously, but lor the sake of those who may honestly believe thi, we publish the following letter from Mr. Wood, tbe author of the br.l, whose opinisn on this point is cer tainly correct. It is not only the law, tut it is common seae. Dr. D. K. Morton read the following personal letter from Hon. J. P. Wood at a Local Option meeting held at Ex celsior Springs, Mo., Sept. 'JOz New LojtDON. Mo , Sept. 16, 1887. D. K. Morton, M. D., Mi-souri Citv.Mo. Deau Doctor.: Our cinmit court is in session and I haro only time to drop you just a word or two iu reply to your ol tbe 15th inst. Section 6 of the local option law ap plies to all sellers or dealers in intoxi cating liquors, the inhibitions contain ed in the section apply only to a dealer in intoxicating liquors, such i. e., as a dram shop keeper, ,i druggist, a mer chant or a distiller, hence the law h:s no application lo a private citizen in Ihe sacred precincts of bis own home, if he sees proper to opon a bottle of Champagne or whisky and give to each of his guests a drink ofs'ich liquor, there is nothing iu the local option law or any other law to punish him for so doing. Any citizen of Missouri within the confines of his own home, bas an inalienable right to give his guest a drink of wine or a drink of water, just as Ihe taste of the preference of tbe two may dictate, and I know of no law on earth or among men that forbids him the fair exercise of such risht, but the moment a citizen becomes a "dealer" in liquor then section C of the local op tion law will reach bim in hl capacity as such dealer, and forbids him indi rectly making a sale by "giving away."
