This is a lesson which they will in All p of ability remember we do not in the least favor the whisky traffic but As Iong As whisky is manufactured it will be sold and to permit the manufacture and then attend kit to prohibit the Sale is ridiculous As to License a Man to peddle the itch and then attempt to enforce a Law to prohibit scratching.

Not having seen Quot a Yaing irom this place in your paper Abr some time and Fiat posing your correspondent Here had ceased his correspondence for some reason i thought i would the task of writing you and giving your readers the state of affairs in our Little City in reference to the Temperance or rather prohibition question. For some time past there has been but i jew prosecutions for violate is of the liquor ordinance or what Are commonly called Quot whisky prosecutions but i am informed upon Good authority that the Faai Apical ele ment Are notifying themselves and making preparations for a vigorous War on the rum traffic and of course those supposed to be engaged in the Trade from now until the City Section next Spring. A Soroe of the most sensible of them frankly admit to a Friend with the injunction that it shall of course be Rosa Quot thai prohibition in Lincoln for the last eight months has been an in a Nodi Mioux failure and admit further a that the result has been just what the License element predicted last Spring and a Noe they May unless Twy male a record in their Favory i. or at least a quasi prohibition record Between now and the met election that instead of the popular majority being 22 against Quot License As was the ease last Spring the majority will be 200 for License and that with such a defeat a that their cause in Lincoln would be a hopeless one. They will use every Means at their command arid make every Effort in their Power from now lib til next Spring to procure the conviction of All persons supposed to be in the business and in that Way make a favourable record for themselves or such a record As they can go before the people on and ask the support of their friends and neighbors in their efforts to super s8 the if the voters of the City should vote to Day on the question Quot for Quot or Quot against Quot License there would be a majority of at least 200 but should the fanatics be successful in their prosecutions and procure 75 or 100 convictions for violations of the liquor ordinance Between now and Tolje next City election no one could easily estimate the effect it would have upon the result of that election now How Many More votes would be cast Quot against Quot License now How much More easily it would be to induce voters to vote against License i fear the effect would be Mireh greater than the License element Are aware of or care to admit but the prohibitionists understand this and will spare no pains to bring about just that very thing. What has created such a change in Public sentiment upon that question since last Spring when the popular majority was "22&Quot against License ? one of the Soj longest in is fences in bringing about that change has been the almost Universal failures of the fanatics in their prosecutions under the liquor Lav. Now if they should be successful and procure a Large number of convictions Between Tiow and the election would not that have a Strowig tendency to restore Confidence in the movement and thereby secures to them a much larger vote than they could now Hope for. Why most As tiredly it would. Then what should be done ? the License element and All persons who Are in favor of Liberty and Freedom in reference to what they eat or drink should at once perfect an organization for self Protection and should in All honorable ways counter Quot it the influences brought to Bear by the fanatics and should by All Means not suffer a conviction upon the testimony of the hired Scall wags of the fanatics. I have heard quite a number who voted and worked against License last Spring say that unless there was More favourable work done by the prohibitionists in the future than in the past they should act with them no longer but on the contrary should act with the License element. While the fanatics keep no their organizations and continue their work throughout the county the License element is doing nothing. The Case of the City is. H. E. Goldsmith and l. F. Grover has been on trial during the Forenoon and will probably last the rest of the Day. The defendants Are charged with Selling liquor contrary to an ordinance. It is said this is the first of a series of cases under the new programme to be followed by the fanatics. Qui Vive from phone cop. Lebanon ind., nov. 25, 1879. Mewton a one w. H.

Unfortunately for him he had been in the City some Days and the attendance was Small. But for col. Schuster there would not have been fifteen in attendance. The col. Being on the stage a few waited to hear him. Many left by the time Lamaster got fairly started. Those who remained and paid particular attention to the address of Lamaster were unable to ascertain the Drift of his remarks. He had a Good subject to it Only As he repeated it. .1 would advise him to quit lecturing As it is certainly not his fort. The bearers can not Tell what he Means by what he says.

Or. Editor a our court is progressing finely. The application of Walls to be reinstated to the bar is set for next monday. Major j. -w.-Gordon, the con8�s ent ? and a personally responsible Quot of your City will present the motion. The major prosecuted Walls Here for perjury a Short time ago. He made in that prosecution one of the Quot greatest efforts of his he was so sanguine of Success in convicting Walls that he openly and loudly boasted of it while the jury were out the jury however a turned time major s cakes a and found Walls Quot not Vilty Quot a whereupon the major s ire arose and he waxed exceedingly warm and loudly proclaimed that Quot Boone county is. The place to try bad criminals when i get another bad Case i will bring it to Boone i will now sign a petition for Walls reinstatement to the bar. The people deserve to have just such rogues and scoundrels As Walls at the bar and in office they had a Chance to show themselves in favor of morality and decency they have acquitted the worst and Gui Tiest Man i Ever prosecuted he said much More of the same Tenor. This All goes to show the people of Boone that the honest and fair minded Gordon has or once stooped to use his profession in a spirit of revenge because Forso thae failed to make out a Case before a jury of intelligent men. There have been a Many remarks made Here in reference to the major s action in this matter yet Quot they Are All honorable ? men. The advertising clock has been to Down from the court room. It was a Little too much Quot pressure Quot and it became necessary to Quot lift the col. Schuster was among us and stayed with us Over sunday. All who met the col liked him and it is the wish of the people Here that he return some time in the near future and give his views to them when he will not be hampered in fact when he can have the whole evening to himself. The better class of citizens in Lebanon Are be ginning to think occasionally or themselves the journal of Freedom and bight will yet do a Good work among us. The people Are beginning to see that a l this fuss and fanaticism is of More or less political significance. The loudest beaters and most rampant Quot meddlesome matties Quot Are already Candi dates for office a or waiting their chances it is easy to see through the cloak. At least it is True in Lebanon for what matters it if they Loose All Liberty and violently of press their neighbors so they gain office. There Are men in Lebanon who have been in places and positions to knew whereof they speak when they deliver their temper Ance lectures who have become Over anxious and the eyes of the people Are on them. Be honest and patriotic gentlemen and Reading thinking people will Reward you if not with office at least with their Good wishes. Look after the Good of your country ask for and support wholesome Laws and be not selfish in seeking office. A a. Danville Shelby Lille Tebis. Ion Orri zonal the Hody were elevated Adove a Ine.

You have probably heard of a so Inland City called Decatur in this state. Well this enterprising Burg has been taken by the Temperance fanatics and there re no Legal places for the Sale of liquors there. All the Quot hardware Quot vended in that Dull and dreary town is put out by druggists and clubs neither of which pay any Revenue for the privilege of Selling the poorest adulterated goods. Not Long since one of our citizens a a German editor was in. Decatur one Day and on his return reported that the town was apparently dead and that no teams were to be seen on the streets and that numerous houses w. Re play carded Quot for he also reported that if one was Quot posted Quot he could find plenty to drink in cellars and other out of the Way places where Quot clubs Quot had their abiding or drinking places. The report by the Danville German editor did not set Well with the hypocritical Temperance people of Decatur their papers there went for the German scribe and called him a liar and perhaps thought him a Quot dirty a methodist preach his one of the sort with More below the Waist than brains in the head who was formerly Quot Bible Banger Quot in Danville wrote a Large letter to one of the papers Here and called the editor of the German paper All kind of pet names and to make the article Sharp As he thought copied Dan s last letter from this place. So you see that even the holy ministers of the gospel Are taking sides with the journal of Freedom and bight and helping to diffuse its Liberal views. I hear it from Good authority that although Decatur has no licensed saloons there is As much drunkenness there As there Ever was when it had plenty of saloons and plenty of business of All kinds. As was the Case Here a few years ago when we had no License. Men came to town and to show that they could get the ardent got too much and was drunk As soon As the effect could be produced. Another thing when there was no License the purchaser had to take what he could get and ask no questions and nine times out of ten he got the vilest compound that Ever went under the name of whisky. And thus you will find it in Decatur. We have seven drug stores Here some of which sell As much Quot tangle foot As any of the saloons. Yet they do not Pav the $400,00 per year for the privilege. The Micawber club a fashionable sunday resort for the shy drinkers also has a big run Especial about noon and jus Belore supper each Dav but on the Sabbath it is better attended than any of the churches by gentlemen who Quot do not go into saloons for some of the member Are also Church members. Alderman p. Carey who i told you had closed up his House on main Street has opened it again and has things in Fine order keeping up his Well earned re Puta Tion for Selling the Best of goods that Kentucky can produce. A the new wholesale House of b Eichberg amp co., of which i spoke Are doing a Fine business for the length of time they have been Here and their prospects for a per Manet footing and paying Trade Here Good. They have put on the Road As trav Eling Salesman or. P. Fitzsimons an old and experienced drummer in the grocery and liquor Trade. As an evidence of Prosperity among Saloon men i will mention that or. Adolph Budolph who keeps near the St. James hotel has purchased a Fine two Story Brick building on the Corner of main and Hazel streets and will soon occupy it for his Busi Ness. It is one of the Best locations in the City. On thanksgiving Day Uncle Quot Charlie Hesse of the he be House set out the finest free lunch Ever spread in this City and was hard to Bent in cities of three times the size of this. He was repaid for his expense and trouble by a throng of patrons All Day and until late in the evening. It is a settled fact that Quot Uncle Quot knows How to keep hotel. The thirsty people of the East part of the City hav it a favorite resort at the Comer of College and South streets. This place is kept by an sex Railroad boy by the name of John Kerneen who treats the boys in the Best manner and gives them the choicest Medicine to be had anywhere. Tom Gerity on the other fide of South Street near the Wabash b. W., has a pleas ant place and does a Large Trade in Beer besides keeping a Firat class Stock of All the hard stiffs known to the Trade. His place is very popular wih the Railroad boys and Coal miners. In fact All the saloons and other branches of business Are Lively and it is almost impossible to get a business room or a dwell no in the City., no Quot for Bent Quot cards needed in Danville.
