Logansport Weekly Journal (Newspaper) - February 10, 1883, Logansport, Indiana Weekly journal. Vol. 35.logan8port, Indiana saturday february 10, 1883.-10 pages. No. 6. Washington specials accuse or Blaine of having a hand in the defeat of senator Windom. V the proposed severe penalty for the crime of rape is abandoned by the a Sis lature on account of fears that it May be in conflict with the Constitution. Jeff Davis must be Potung for the democratic presidential nomination in 1884. He has written a letter in which he Deniest height of the majority to Rule. The committee on coinage of the House of Congress opposes the discontinuance of the coinage of Silver dollars and recommends that additional vault room f9r the coins be provided. The senatorial contest in Minnesota has been settled by the election of Hon. . 6abin,a leading business Man and manufacturer of that state. The Windom men went to Sabin and Bis election in probably As Good a Compromise As could have been made. Several Bills have been introduced in the legislature proposing a heavy License tax and wholesome restrictions on the liquor traffic. It is Safe to say however that the democratic majority under the control of the liquor Bosses will not permit such legis tion. The House of the legislature la tuesday by a vote of 52 to 35 declared the constitutional amendments to be legally pending in the general Assembly. The effect of this vote will be to keep the amendments As a huge Corpse in the Way of the introduction of any other amendments. Judge Jeremiah Black the great democratic lawyer and Leader made an argument before the House judiciary committee the other Day against the Bill to prevent bigamy in the territories introduced in tue House by or. Mulits. Judge Black argued that the Bill or any such Bill is unconstitutional. Judge Black also said he believed the territories have the right to make whatever Laws they please concerning the marrying of wives. A weighty and unanswerable argument against the liquor traffic is presented in the statement of the Chicago news that Quot one of the Saddest and most significant circumstances connected with the failure of the Union Iron and steel company of this cite is that it is now charged there Are in the neighbourhood of the works some Twenty saloons that thrive almost exclusively f n the lavish Louapre of the workmen that these workmen have monthly liquor Bills Ruu lung All the Way from $15 to $1 k that a number of the workmen admit that the Saloon rec Eivid the larger part of the Money paid out As wages and that nearly All the 8ajoon-koi�peis in the Vicinity Are raps Day . And Are now owners of re u Ati Ite. Of the Joii tical situation in be i sly Vania the Philadelphia times says Quot Taro weeks a go tie Republic Atis has a Power i us and ably led minority of independents in their ranks waging War against tiie re Publ Chin boys sys system and the of pub Jie office to the ment of personal obligations. Of it Day the lie publican independents have been driven to make common Caute with the Republican regulars to wage War against the democratic bobs system organized on a lower Grade of political rewards for personal services and the democracy formerly uni Teil against the Cameron spoils men has now a powerful minority if not a positive majority ready to hoist the Independent Flag Gamst the Cassidy Tae Republican independents find themselves Quot out of the frying into the the democrats in the House of Congress have been compel Letl to unmask by the Republican majority and boldly avow their d termination to defeat the Tariff Bills pending in the House and Senate thus preventing any Tariff revision at the present Sersion. Nothing will suit them of that subject and if they were Given the privilege of framing a measure they could agree upon it. They can Only play the part of obstructionists and dogs in the manager but Munfor Izoar by they have it in their Power to bad Lii and defeat the majority. Home of their number realize the probable consequences of this reckless course and or. Sumuel Randall Tays it will overwhelm the democratic party in defeat in 1884. The Quot rope Quot Given in the v elections last fail is tightening Aro uus the necks of that party in the process it of its rapid self destruction i a mass meeting in savor of the Protection of american Indus tried was Hele in new York recently at which Peter Cooper presided assisted by a number of distinguished men from All parts of the to anti. Or. Cooper and others made speeches and resolutions were adopted in favor of a Tariff Bill based on the recommendations of the Tariff commission. Or. Cooper if known and recognized by the people of this country As a self made honorable and successful business Inan and also As one of the greatest humanitarians and friends of labor in the country. His words Are therefore entitled to great weight on such a subject As Baric Protection. On this occasion he said substantially that he was glad to seethe attention of the american people fixed on the question of free Trade and Protection. The free traders of other countries have tried to persuade us to adopt their teachings. Should they be adopted our mechanics would be for Ceil to work for starvation wages or abandon their trades and become competitors of the agricultural labourers of the country. Our country would if those theories were adopted be reduced to the condition of Ireland Spain and Mexico. We would produce the raw materials and others would do the manufacturing. Such a policy would bring ruin upon hundreds of thousands of american workmen who have nothing to sell but their labor. Should the Tariff be reduced 25 per cent it would Cost us at least f1,000,000,000. Free Trade in England produced a Condi Ion of wretchedness among the working people and ave them barely sufficient to sustain life. The effect in America would be Simi Lar. They Are killed. The prohibitory amendment is dead. Doubts of its Ever living Are yield. It was born in the brain of fanaticism and brought Forth in the minds of scheming Policianos. It Wafi killed too after having been born in the brain of fanaticism by these Verajr scheming politicians who pretended to give it i e. The party in Indiana which placed Loose swaddling clothes upon the Prohic i tion infant did not and dare not openly Champion tiie change in the Tate Constitution proposed by this amendment. Tie demo i Atic party is opposed to prot i by t Ion from principle. Opposition to prohibition and like Laws that invade the personal rights of the citizen is a Corner Stone in to lib Structure of let Emo race. Take that principle away and tiie whole fabric is weakened. That grandest of Lisman documents penned by the immortal Jefferson declares Quot that All Luen Are endowed with certain in alienable rights among which Are Lile Liberty and the Pursuit of upon this democracy is builder. In the last canvass in tills state tie i democracy made a Square fair open Light against prolix Bitton and won a signal Victory. It was a fight in Ali Iii was joined with Kepp Bli a in deceit. It was a Victory Over fanaticism and Republican cowardice. The democrats were right in voting the measure Down in the Senate. First because a he record of the last legislature is defective. Second because a majority of the people Haven right to say what the minority Shalley to drink and Wear. Every Man is Bel ter off by being Tempe ate in All things and the right is accorded Triem of being so. Laws that Force people to be temperate live always been Lail urts and always will be. The above remarkable production appeared in the pharos of wednesday Jan. 81st 1883, and is reproduced in the journal More for pure sea of future reference than pres ent comment. Iti it statement of facts is exceedingly Loose and inaccurate. The amendment tip were born of the Radical Temperance sentiment of the state represented by voting petitioners of All parties. They were killed by an Alliance Between tie Lii for trafic and democratic . The Quisti m of prohibition has not fat pen before the people of Indiana except in tie minds of a few Sperger viewable democratic servants of the lieu Ltd a Pratlie. The liquor and their do Moc Ratie allies were afraid to meet the question before the people hence Thev killed it on a pretext of a Legal defect. The Point of interest in the above production however is it emphatic a formation of the democratic doctrine that Quot a majority of the people Bave no Light to say what the minority shall eat drink and in other words that a majority of the Pei ple have no right to med tue with the liquor traffic which Furni Hei. Liquid damnation As meat drink and clothing for a Consi Lerable minority. This doctrine is the main slay of the of the Lii for True he. If it is the Truf doctrine the traffic should Kie As free and Urier ameled As any other less of t using and Selling. If it by false there is no limit to the Power a majority Over this monster evil us the a is. For the pro sent the journal is Content to assert its doctrine in of it position that in this country the people Rule and there i a no limit to the Power of a majority exercised within its sphere of action. For All govern Ovental purposes Quot the voice of the people is the voice of god ? Henry r. Winklebleck Supply agent for the handle has a very Siek Man at Royal Center. The person is Cue do Vid Bell a Man of about thirty. He has the Braiu fever and no Hopes of his recovery Are entertained. He came to Logansport from Frankfort about a year ago and entered the employ of or. Winklebleck. At no time during the year has he Ever referred to any relatives or friends whom be might have and now that he is sick nigh in to death no clue to his history can be obtained. He was a Man that had Little to say and made few friends. Everything that can is being done to relieve his sufferings and his friends or relatives if living Are trying to be found. _ from the daily of it Bruaw a 8 or. Samuel f. Wilbarger departed this life yesterday Forenoon at his rooms aver Tanguy amp Psi Theisel s store. He has been very sick for the past five weeks having been troubled with Throat disease and other ailments contracted during his service in the late War. He was in his sixt fifth year and leaves a wife and eight children. He moved with his family to this place about a year ago from Auburn Indiana but was formerly of Elkhart at which place his family resided during his absence while on duty in the army. He served three year in the War and was a member of the third Indiana Battery. His children Are expected Here this morning after which the time of the funeral will t e announced. Another View of it. Or. 8. P. Sheerin writes to the journal taking it severely to task for its few words unfriendly to the project of procuring the location of an Asylum for the insane on the Smithson College grounds of this City. He says that the Smithson College build my and grounds Are admirably adopted to the proposed purpose and the journal s talk about Quot howling maniacs Quot is Quot the merest Balderdash Quot As there is nothing about insane asylums Quot to make them objectionable to the very nearest he says further that i Gator Magee representative Thomas and himself Are prepared to work hard to secure this Benefit for Logansport and have Good Hopes of Success if they Quot receive proper encouragement from the journal has no objection whatever to the giving of such encouragement by persons who regard the establishment of an Asylum for the incurable or other insane in this City As a Benefit neither will it it a Straw in tie Way of those who May choose to work for such supposed Heue fit. Our people would one and All be glad to see the 8mithson Cohage building and grounds put to some use that would Benefit the City and if an insane Asylum is the Best Trtat can be done and the people want that kind of an institution the journal will not Toni Plain.
