Ledger, The (Newspaper) - May 24, 1889, Warren, Pennsylvania VOLUME 40. WARREN MAY 24, 1889. NUMBER 41. VOICE OF THE Some Objections to the Amendment Objections to the license Able Conservative Statement of tne TTT HE question for Pennsylvania on I the 18th is the license or JL of the liquor To the constitutional amendment as it is are raised some some and some that it is supported by some One is The simple answer that there are extremists and unreasonable people in every public even in the opposition to the The ment may be used with equal force against the tie the If tne support of cranks is a sufficient ob- jection to any undertaking or measure a man will approve or join In any public enterprise they cannot be barred Another is that the amendment was originated and is engineered by the third party The answer that it should be con- upon its own merits regardless of its origin or What comes from a doubtful source at be but if tested and proved beneficial should be neither ignored nor Another is that the as are transcending their sphere in its Even admitting what is the odium should rest upon the churches and not upon what they They are human and fallible and if they err they It would be unreasonable if the churches should array themselves upon the side of high tariff or civil service that the tariff or reform should be blamed for their Another is that prohibition will diminish the revenue of the No doubt the receipts will be but so will the and if the state say five in license and in consequence of license pays say ten in vice and her available revenue will not be much diminished by cutting off the license Another is that prohibition does not hibit or prevent the liquor No sane man expects that any law will be observed To conclude that law cannot be enforced implies that the government is While the rumors the effects of prohibition are conflicting it has evidently lessened the sale of It is unreasonable that it should be opposed by liquor men as it that they should be banded together and contributing millions lor its if their profits are not diminished by it. Another is that it creates law There are it is who will buy and sell liquors and if prohibited they will tuy and sell them by prohibiting you make But the argument may be used with equal force against all Because tariff makes smuggling possible it would follow that there should or because some men will break any law that may be it is better there should be no Another is that it will prevent the ers from making But cider as it comes from the press is and therefore not plated in the When ments its sale is but not more under the amendment than WITHOUT and then not for but be used as a is its sale Another is that it will destroy the perty of those engaged in the But the same argument may be used against high The property of those whose license is revoked is thereby lessened in value as is seen in and if in THEIR case it is it is equally right in ALL The position is taken that moral reform should be carried on not by force or but by moral The sufficient answer is that it is not merely a moral reform that is aimed at in this but a civil The question is one in which the interests of the state are That it is a MORAL the and as such as affecting the state they are and of right should be in- and punished by Were everything that is moral left wholly to moral suasion the whole criminal code of the state would be dispensed You cannot make men sober by it may be you cannot wholly prevent the sale of liquor by but neither you make men honest by nor wholly pre- vent crimes against But law is not intended altogether to prevent crime DIRECTLY it is intended to prevent it in- directly and m punishing in stamping it with public in making criminal what injures the com- in removing the temptations to it and in absolving the state from all com- in it. The state that does not tect her throw a shield and guard SHERIFFS Property to be Sold to the Highest COMMENTS Hands of the I around is responsible for any injury to them in consequence of that The prohibition of the liquor traffic is advocated NOW not from a merely ian standpoint or one of mere philanthropy or but because it injures and will destroy the or in other words in de- fence of our civil Another objection is that prohibition away the will and makes men It is doubtful if this objection is made in a spirit of mystic philosophy or in mere It is the very essence of pure unadulterated It strikes down all all re- all it allows every man to do as he un- checked even by them who in his wild career he may injure and trample Any such theory would dispense with all restrictive license or When a man CAN do as he pleases and not infringe necessarily upon the rights of then might this principle be but not as long as he must infringe upon or so long as he WILL upon whether he CAN avoid it or The highest human liberty is to do what is Even the liberty of God does not transcend that When a man pleases to do right he CAN do as he While A Condensed 1.1st and Description of tiie Property in tne HERIFF Fuellhart has advertised the following property to be sold to the highest bidder at the court house on Monday June 3 1889, at 2 o'clock p. m.
