Lucky and Happy Jim Quot Rice a entered upon the discharge of the duties of the office of auditor of Bute. It is believed that a prohibition amendment to the Constitution will pass both houses of the West Virginia legislature. The Indiana Bureau of statistics has won a National reputation and it is yet in the infancy of its develop ment and usefulness. The Deino biotic party by the action of its representatives in the legislature is b3und hand and foot to the interests of the liquor traffic. The fiends of governor Foster of Ohio Are confident that he will succeed Pendleton in the Senate in Case the next legislature is lie publican. Are the authorities of this City always to be the allies or helpless spectators of the insolent Law defying of gambling Dens and the sunday liquor Traine the democratic majority in the lature appears to the determined make the state benevolent institutions the prey of the democratic Poilu seeker. Pegis Koma Logansport is disgraced by the refusal or inability of her authorities to do anything in enforcing the Laws against gambling and the sunday liquor traffic. The Money worse than wasted in gambling and sunday liquor drinking in this City every six months would establish a Public Library whose Bene fits could never he fully estimated. To claim of tue Indian Chie it bed Cloud that the $5,000 received by general Crook in 1876, from the Sale of ponies seized irom the indians was never applied to the of the in if Sab st Dtta Ted by the records a Fatmi Biardi the lature voted steadily for the Devil for United states senator. The member was a Democrat and is not the Only one of that political complexion who realizes that his party is going to the Devil. A strongly supported Bill in the in Luois legislature for the regulation and Reform or the liquor traffic fixes the minimum License fee at $500 a year and has stringent provisions for the punishment and prevention of existing abuses. There is a rising tide of Public sentiment All Over the country in favor of the Strong restriction and taxation of the liquor Traffis As the Best and most available Means of Ciu Tail ing the evils of the Traffis and bring ing its operations under the control of Law and authority. The Republic if party of this state As a party of Reform in Hearty sympathy with every demand of the people for Quot the greatest Good of the greatest number Quot should take notice of this rising tide and govern itself accordingly. The w4uaii8 suffrage convention in Washington adopted resolutions declaring that woman suffrage Means stable institutions Happy Homes equal wages and equal purity for men and women pronouncing pending reforms in the civil service a dishonest pretence unless women Are graded in the service the same As men denouncing the proposition to disfranchised the women of Utah for no crime whatsoever As Quot a cruel display of Power which lies in might alone Quot and asserting that won in should be Given the ballot to preserve the integrity of society and the permanence of Ameris can institutions in View of the fact that the immigration to this country now averages 500,000 persons per annul. Leadville and Duver cok have a big sensation concerning the famous Robinson mine l. B. Parker the superintendent being accused of stealing the Ore. It seems that Parker leased the wheel of Fortune mine a parallel claim to the Robinson. The stockholders in Denver state that Parker made a Tunnel from the Robinson to the wheel of Fortune and sold the r Tinson Ore As wheel of Fortune Ore that by these manipulations he has made a personal Bank account of $75,000 in three months that the dividends have been declared. Parker has been discharged but further developments Are expected. If these charges Are True it is another indication that for ways that Are dark and tricks that Are vain Quot the mining superintendent like the Heathen Chinee is the numerous Ball baked statesmen who Are now advocating free Trade or Tariff for Revenue Only depend chiefly upon false statements mid fallacious season int. They Are in Wye teachers rho would the facts of experience in favor of part jul diced and chimerical the Ries. The Emigrant commissioner hat new York assert that o the million or so imn Granis arriving in America la it year not one Wae brought Over by an american vessel and it is also stated to be a fact that not a Bushel of Grain exported from new York last year was shipped in an american Bottom. The cause and the occasion of general Weaver s leaving the re pub ican cola of it Jou Twa. In the Sute convention of 1875 Weaver was a candidate for governor and he or Olebly had a majority of the delegates pledged to support him. But his opponents were determined upon his defeat. The orgy Way open was to cause a Stampede for some popular candidate by springing his name unexpectedly upon the convention. When the proper time arrived sex governor Kirkwood a name was presented and his nomination rushed through amid great excitement. It is admitted now that general Weaver was not fairly treated and had he remained in the Republican party the wrong would doubtless have been righted. But he sought Consolation for his wounded feelings among the Greenback ers and they sent him to Congress and ran him for president. Another revenge has come to him lately. The Man who engineered the movement against his Noa nation in 1875 has been robbed of a Large sum of mopey. _ the grand jury of the criminal court of st. Louis after investigating the dram it Shors of that City reports that to per cent of the crime and pauperism emanates from them and therefore recommends a maximum License of $1,000 Lor liquor saloons and of $500 for places which sell Only wine and Beer. Kays the i Utica morning Herald Quot or. Wimdom s Fri ans in the Minnesota i legislature complain that the super serviceable efforts of Federal office holders in bin behalf have greatly prejudiced his Case. The time is past when a Federal officer is valuable As an agent to carry conventions and nominate candidates. Still Many gentlemen who Are otherwise very intelligent fail to realize that this is the a Marsh t. I Olk the Tennessee defaulter paid $80,000 for his mexi Jan mines to which so Many unexplained references have been made. These Ines. Two in number Are a number 1 Miles South of the Quot Boss Shepherd Minei Quot in Chihuahua. One of them Khasan Antonio yielded $600.000 Between 1859 Ana 1871,and the other the san Pedro has yielded $5,000,000 a Inee 1871. Polk a pent $20,000 in new Mac Linery. On the first Day of this year the relations of Husk and to wife in England underwent a Complete change. The married woman s property act of 1882 is the la it in a series of Regis action entirely superseding the old common Law Rule that the rights of a wife Are merged in her husband. The result is that there Are four classes of married woman in England Havins distinct rights and Riahi limit a. First those married a fore August 1s70, Are entitled to their wages and earnings and to any property the title to which a Crues As from to Day. But their bus. Dand i Are liable for their debts before and after marriage. Those married Between 1870 and 1874 Are entitled in addition to the above to All sums coming to them As next of Kin under intestacy to sums coming by will or deed up to $1.00 it and to rents of free holds descending to Triem As heiresses. Husbands of these women Are not liable for debts contracted before marriage. Women married Between 1874 and 1883 can make their Hus ads liable for debts Only to the extent of t 3e assets which the latter have received from their wives. Women my a Riel after january 1, of this year May acquire hold and i pose of real estate and personal property in the same manner As if unmarried without the intervention of trustees. A Wile May now sue her husband prosecute him criminally and even make him a bankrupt. It remains to of seen whether or not this change in the Law will increase the business of the divorce court. The Bill on the Subj it it of highways that seems most Likely to pass the legislature continues the present system substantially but provides that the township trustee shall fill the place of superintendent and that he shall select supervisors for Esch Road District instead of the present Road master. Road tax May be worked out under his direction at Cash rates. The German Telegraph of Indianapolis the paper that in the last Campaign sneered at the Quot ignorant fanatics of the Rural districts Quot reds the Law Laid Down by the liquor traffic Bosses As follows a let none of the democratic members of the Legi Latare forget under whatever circumstances and under what promises his election waa obtained that on Hia action the Fate of the democratic party depends. He has either to follow the Quot Munkers Quot or the libera element. He can do the republicans no greater favor than when he declares himself for submit slow. That would be the surest Way to estrange the Liberal element irom the democratic party. That party May say to itself that it Don t care al ont the vote of the Oatta but it will do so at the Cost of its neck. To wording to the Ohio experience should the gentlemen shape themselves. If Uliey do not then they will feel the the Bio of inter Ocean in a Throe of its suffering experience strikes out vigorously As follows those who Are howling about the honesty and integrity of democratic government would do Well to look at new York with its stolen and squandered millions Cincinnati bankrupt in its Treasury and not a Dollar to reclaim its almost impassible streets st. Louis with barely enough life to kick and Chicago the Bonis of the Gambler thug and sandbagged. If any Beauty can be discovered or virtue unearthed in these examples let it be pointed out and democracy vindicated. The facts As they stand leave democracy the lamest and sick st organization which Ever held up its head among men to ask favor Ana it is Well understood that the liquor traffic is opposing the election of we a Dom in Minnesota and ferry in Michigan in revenge for Theof Ait look of those a ten agora to leialatia4i by Congress favourable to the liquor interest. This interest has political Power which it proposes to use to the uttermost in self Protection and while this is the Case the question of Temperance cannot be kept out of politics unless everybody surrenders to the liquor traffic and concedes its demands. The Republican party cannot ally itself to this interest and would not if it Oum. Hence it May count the liquor traffic As its sworn enemy. That being the Case it is manifestly the policy and duty of the party to choose its ground and give Battle to this enemy and the Choice of a Battlefield is now free and open to the Paity in this state at least. The journal has for years past to it Een pointing out the advantages of the High tax and efficient restriction position on this question. The people Are ready to rally around the party in that position and the liquor traffic and its allies cannot prevail against it. The objection to a High licence tax on the liquor traffic that Quot Temperance men Dou t want their children educated at the expense of the drunkard s family Quot is a fallacious sentiment ism. The fines imposed in All cases of Misdemeanour go into the school fund and Quot Temperance men a Quot children Are to some Exter t at least educated at the expense of Drunken men fighting men gamblers Etc. It will not be argued that these fines shall cease or Tuat their proc Els shall i in applied in Home Les it useful m inner lest the children Elt in rated in the Public schools necome contaminated with the touch of the purpose and effect of a High License tax Are the restraint of the liquor Traelic and a con Seiju ent Diminu Tiou of lae evils lowing from it to reduce the number of saloons in towns and cities and wine them out entirely in villages and country places. The result of such High tax cannot fail to be largely prohibitory More so perhaps than prohibition itself could a in the present condition of Public sentiment. To say that this great Good shall not be attained because some persons choose to believe that taxing an existing and almost us controllable evil is a License f or the continuance of that evil which involves the Community receiving the tax in the guilt of the evil is impractical fanaticism.
