Ewtou Gazette history of local option in our state is Brief but it ii significant. In the legislature of 1872 a Law was enacted giving the counties the right to vote every three years on the question of granting License to sell intoxicating liquors. In March 1873, the first election was held which resulted in 41 counties by an aggregate vote of 213, representing a population in said counties of deciding against License and 24 counties which contained the chief cities for License. Before this Law which had Cost a vast Deal or labor and Money on the part of its friends bad time to demonstrate its practicability and usefulness its enemies began to labor for its re peal Ani so successful were they that on the 12lli of april 1815, the same legislature with the Sanction of tie governor annulled tally saying to the 41 counties you shall continue to groan under the intolerable Burden of taxation and wretchedness which the License system of the state entails Noiin you.

The plat Folio. Trio Republican party of Pennsylvania adhering to its historical record and to its Princi Ples heretofore often affirmed declares it. Is uncompromisingly opposed to free Trade in whatever disguise presented unchanging by devoted to Home Industry and hereby avows it special and direct hostility to the Tariff Bill now pending in Congress the same being in Llie interest of importers and foreign and in opposition to american labor. Labor being the great source of National wealth the Prosperity of the a Ion roust depend upon the extent to which i is protected and employed and that our government being a government of the peo ple should Endeavor to promote by All proper Means the com Nircia and Industrial interests of the nation that labor and capital May both be profitably employed. American Commerce should be fostered and Home Enterprise developed by the National Gove unsent to the end that our manufacturing mining agricultural and Industrial interest May flourish our people find employ rent and the country be restored to permanent Prosperity. The Public lands belong to the people and should be reserved exclusively for actual settlers so that the industrious poor May be encouraged and aided to enter upon and occupy. We Are now As Ever opposed to the payment of claims from the National treas Ury to those lately engaged in or sympathizing with the rebellion. No conqueror should be forced to indemnity to the conquered and the presentation of Bills demanding Over at the present session of a democratic House is a warning to the country of the Cost and danger of retaining in Power a Paity Whoso chief is to make reprisals on the taxpayers for losses which the crime of treason brought upon the Southern people. We View with alarm the growing depression of Many of the leading Trade inter ests of the state and country resulting largely it is believed from unfair advantages and discriminating rates of freight and transportation companies of the state and country to a favored few to the prejudice of our general producing interests and this convention earnestly recommends the enactment of such Laws by tie state and National Legislatures As trill Correct this growing evil. The Southern republicans White and coloured have our Earnest sympathy in the unequal contest to which they Are sub of acted fur civil Liberty and the maintenance of their constitutional privileges and that in the of their guaranteed rights we demand from Tho general government for them an equal and fair ballot and that Equality before the Law which should be the boast of every government. That the administration of government Hartranft meets the Hearty endorsement and unqualified approval of Tho party that elected him and continues to Honor him.

Hero tearful lament of the Brewers association which met about this time 187c very severe is tie injury which our association received in this so called Temperance state. The local option Law of Pennsylva Nia Ledu cd. The number of Brewers in 1s73 from Oto to 340 in 187-1, thus destroying 104 in one their Craft being in Dang i associations were immediately formed to create a fund to Aid in def mice of their business and now that fund is Teady whenever local option is up before the legislature. Any politicians favourable to local option who offer themselves for Olike Are immediately opposed everywhere by the members of these associations. But let not the friends of Temperance relax their i forts. Local option is our chief Hope for the removal of the greatest curse of our state the License system and have we not sufficient encouragement to Peis Evore a Bill for restoring local option was reported last year i the House and lost by a majority of 109 to 69. This year a similar Bill was acted upon after Able speeches for it and was lost by Only two majority while forty five members had not the courage to vote against it. A great gain certainly for local option. Nothing need now be said As the benefits which would result from its establishment Lirou Oliou the state. The Hon. Or. Mann in an Able speech on the subject when referring to local option in Potter county said their it stands a shield to All the youth of the county against the temptation to form drinking habits. Under its benign influence the number of tippers is steadily decreasing and fewer Young men be Gin to drink than when licensed houses gave respectability to the habit.

This seemed an easy turn for the Jay which at once prepared to have a feast of the eggs. Lint no sooner had i perched on Ibe Lim of the nest than the Thrush a Atli a Savage Squall plunged Down from its hiding place and struck it a heavy blow in the Back. The Jay Ietreatc-1 in disorder but warily returned again when All seemed still. With infinite Cantou in every movement it hopped from Twig to Twig turning its crested head this Way and that till it cached tic nest. Again witha Brill scream the to miss pounced from its hiding place using its Long Sharp beak for a stoic to Stab the Jay s exposed and defenceless Back again and again the would be jobber tied and returned each time to net rougher usage and finally As if utterly outdone with rapidly repeated Crills of de Jay de Jay it flitted away the Depths of the Woods to come no journal. Some feelings Are no Lan Cage has yet been found for them. They gleam upon us Beaini fully through the dim Twilight of fancy Ami Yel we bring them close to us Ami hold them up to the Light of reason lose their Beauty All at once As glow wot is which gleam with such a spiritual Imit in the shadows of evening when brought where the candles Are lighted Are found to be worns like so Many agitation must be very torpid indeed if you cannot hear and All that scattered around . I have seen one fairly dance in ecstacy of anger when nothing but a poor Little Brown Lizard came near it. A pair of Catbird had their nest and Young in a cur rant hedge of the Garden belonging to a farm House where i was lodging one Spring and i used to amuse myself by exciting the anger of the Mother Bird. To do this i had Only to hang a bit of red cloth near the nest in her absence and await the result. No sooner would she return than such a twittering and squeak ing and scolding would begin As Only a Catbird could generate and when she found out that there was no flight in the rag she would Eye sitting window and Mew Triumph autly As if she Well knew who it was had thus troubled her equanimity. A War of rather a War of a thing of frequent occurrence Between the Catbird and the common Brown Brush. Early in the morning through the month of May they May be heard scream ing their respective medleys at the extreme pitch of their voices from neighbouring Trees each songster maliciously Bent on drowning the others voice. The common barn Yard cock is Given to a like ambition in the matter of crowing Down All competitors. Speaking of the Brown Thrush reminds that i ought to record Light Here a very combat witnessed by myself and brother Between one of these Gay singers and a Blue Jay what Bird is not compelled the fight the latter f and in which the Jay was finally discomfited and beaten. Ife were lying in Tho Yliada of a wide spread ing wild Plum tree of the Edge of a Little Glade.
