the honor of an extend ed and intimate acquaintance with James Lane Allen the Kentucky magazine writer and lecturer In purity of diction and style he stands peerless among South ern prose writers and there is u special demand for his distinctive literary traits to counterbalance the immensely preponderating Southern trend to the jocular and dialectic and light styles of lit erature Writers in this last department have shown great excellence and have contributed to the health happiness and good morals of theI people by making them laugh atI genuine humor 1 regard some of these as being as truly public benefactors as are our greatest discoverers and scientists or asj the writers of some of our finest ethics and philosophy but it wouldnut do to have of ourI Southern literature of that kind There should always be some of that moralizing and refining fluence that springs from uuuh high refinement of words andI ideas as we lied in Macaulay orI Goldsmith and that tender pa Ifthos and sentiment that hang like an autumnal halo around thtlI books and lite of Washington Ir ving There is something about Mr Allen that reminds mo of Irving- I have not heard Mr Allen lee ture but from current comment 1 gain the general impression thatI the defect in his lectures is the + lack of advocacy of any ot the practical and tangible subjects that are engaging the popular mind nlsrtsritingshave Bart and sentiment probably because the commercial value ol these was more readily realized he is a man of much debt of scholarship and breadth of fat li tive capacity and appreciation as would most eminently fit him for didactic ethics and philosophy While such a question as tl e literature of the South may en gage the interest of a few savants for the large majorityeven among highly cultivated people it lacks that defliniteuess and pointedness and special adapta tion to a particular end that is in demand now Henry Grady more than anyI that I know had put himself iuI touch with the competent con sensus ot the age and his mem ory is today enshrined in the hearts of pure women and good men as I cannot conceive to be possible of any orator now livingI His death leaves an aching void in the great American heartIOf course it would be my preference to have Mr Allen to take up Gradys mantle and like him self become the champion of the Prohibition cause in the possibil ties of which there seems to me to be wrappedup more of good to humanity than anythingnow before the people But if he does not specially fancy this department there are congenital fields of thought of which it can hardly so truly be said that they need cultivation as that their harvest is ready for the reaper and sickle Let Mr Allen become the champion ot an international peace congress for instance Let him espouse the causo of the Indians or devise some solu tion of the negro problem or ad vocate compulsory or educational qualification fur the elective franchise or woman suffrage or dress reform or some thing like General Booths plan for the amelioration of the coudi tion of the poor Tho whole tendency of any in fluence that Mr Allen would be liable to exert would be refining but the demand of the ago is for expedition and directness in pur pose and there is an opening for laborers in some of these departments where there is a specific end that many people want to see accomplished Woman Nullrage There are upon which Willipot =T vention in session at Omaha adopted a resolution favoring woman suffrage This action wil not meet with approbation in the- South The women of the South do not want to vote George town Times- I believe the most intelligent women of Georgetown would say that they are willing for other educated women to vote The Prohibition party simply wants intelligent women who want to vote to have the right do apd no man or woman car offer any reason why they should not have that right Withholding suffrage from educated women is the domination of brute force over the broadest enlightenment of the ago A Call by Chairman Harris for Amount Pledged IFoquiis STATE PROHIBITION Executive Committee of Ky To the Prohibitionists of

except one have a record of hor rible crimes The is Danville rHnrrodsbl1rgHarrodsburg simply appalling A sample ofthe way they do things there occurred at their last court daywhen a sixteen cur old boy in a drunken debauch shot dead a young man in the his wife that he marriedon last Christmas for no reason in the worldexcept that the boywas drunkWhen I was a Baltimore coffee drummer I used to stop over at Danville every time that I could when I could not get home and 1 avoided Harrodsburg and many drummers did the same I never knew until years after that at that time and for years be fore Danville did not allow liquor sold within its limits It is the only one of these towns of which this is true If I had may business interest to take me to Danville I wouldnot hesitate to take my family there but my boys and 1 will dig in the dirt to make our living for along time yet before I would take them to any other ot those towns The Presbyterians drove the li quor traffic out of Danville because they wanted to help their college there There are a plenty of them in this city to drive it out of Lexington if they wanted to do so for they are wealthy intelligent and influential But as soon us I say in print that the Presbyterians have no college here and that their business interests make it safer for them not to oppose the liquor traffic then good people here say I am introducing my peculiar religious views and am ridiculing and persecuting a particular re ligious denomination One of the best Christians and Prohibitionists in this city a few days ago said to me that one ol tho most prominent Presbyterian ministers in this county had said to him of anothor ot the most prominent Presbyterian ministers of county that he was the most worldly wise man he ever know 1 do not think I can bo mistaken in saying that there is a re cognized difference hero on the question of opposing the liquor traffic between the Uhristiau and Baptist and Methodist Churches on the one hand and tho Presbyterian and Episcopal Churches on the other About Frfril lleury Clarion A genttoinun from Versailles who has t called to his spects nnIfissubscriptioti for lUE- BLADE is o lcofa number of fine

Feb 991- C 0 Moore Esq Ed Blade t Lexington Ky DEAR SIR Your last e lition of the Blade is just before me have read the first two articles on first page and have to say Thems my sentiments The centrifugal force of the old parties is throwing off the reformatory elements in them and what we want to do is to keep up a correspending centripetal force and take them all in remember ing all the time that if we begin to compromise in any way the principles of our party this con tripetal force will be weakened and we will fail to crystalizo the flying fragments of the disinte grated old parties Sterling principle and eternal fidelity to that principle in a party will tell in time just as manly principle and true moral courage in a man will conduce to his strength and favor with time peopleAs the talk that a few very lew I am glad to say of our people have about changing the name of our party I think it weakness and folly Christ when on Earth said if wo were ashamed to confess His name before men He would be ashamed to confess us before Hid angelsSo rage to stand for our name because it is a definition of its principles and because the Devil hates it we will find ourselves oa the in cline plane ot degeneracy before long for one compromise leads to another and alwaYdI little compromise we most insidious I believe if we should change our name the angels of Heaven would blush because further would the Do inevitableIwe lrohibiItionistcable when the liquor business isI destroyed The main provincd ot govern ment is the Prohibition of evil otherwise it would be superfluous for without restriction people u edno party to say they may do so and so I hold that a ohan o of name would be the harbinger of at least comparative failure If we preserve the dignity of our principles by holding to their appro name whop is their true index we will be the greatest party that this country ever saw and only such a party will have the courage to take up new moral rightlyForto object to the name I take it is a good omen for it shows theyI are thinking about us and that their consciences are of adjustment und contenmplatei see the tenacity of und the more they our rinciples the more admire and hayo our party againsti I thinkthat with the we have stood so long unprecedented opposition while gonedownprestige and influence we should have added faith and courage and less floundering If we are constant in fidelity to our name and principles they will carry us through in Gods own good time and we can afford to labor and to wait What we must guard against now is impatience We must expect the flying meteors to spend their force some what before the power of our attraction shall be brought to boar degreeThetion party arc so humanitarian jo universally applicable so free rom

pay me for it or say they intend to pay me for it at some reasonable date or that they do not intend to pay me for it And this is what I ask of every body to whom this paper goes who has not paid for it Any of those three answers will be satisfactory to me and will be thankfully received Nearly all the communications that come to me are kindly expressed but yesterday I got two BLADES wrapped

this occasion to add to my trouble If there is a good world that all people will get to hereafter that only try to do good even though they fail I am glad of that chapter in the New Testament on the subject of stars differing from one another iu glory and that goes to show that there will be different ranks in the other world- I hope these gentlemen and I willall get there just the same but

Under this decision it is evident that neither prohibitory nor nny restrictive or license laws can prevent tho opening of original package saloons The Pennsylvania and Nebraska high license laws anti tho local option laws of Georgia and Massachusetts and tho threo mile nnd four milo laws of other states nil are powerless to prevent n raid of scienceless liquor sellers Original package saloons can

that which was legiti mate business ono day n crime the next not under any law of congress but against tho law of the state Thorn it nothing in tho wording of the net imply big that congress asserted such n power or intended to give such effect to title onnctimmt Tho Wilson bill left it to the free and untrammeled ncton of thoseveral states to determine whether they would not in cludo within their police laws this particular article ef commerce Every state in the union probably has in its statutes some legulidionn of tbotmnio in inloxi eating liquors These statutes ns n rule exempt from their operation imporled liquors and their sale ill original park ages thus indicating the general conmm sus that hithertr twas not recognized at among tho police powers of the state tc regulate or interdict among the status the traffic in imported liquors The prohibi tory law of tho state of Kansas whero it touched upon interstate commerce no law at nil nt the time of this enact went nor since Judge Cooley says The termlunconstitutiono11tw1 employed in American jurisprudence is a misnomer null implies a contradiction that enactment which is opposed to the onstitution being in fact not law at all Again Judge Cooley says When a statute is adjudged to be unconstitutional it is as if it had never been How then can tho act of con gress in question have the effect and operation claimed for it by tho attorneys for the state For it must be kept in mind that a legislative act in conflict with the constitutions not only illegal or voidable but it absolutely void Continuing the that the Wilson law under ever rule of con struction must be projpechvo in the eration It must conceded says tho decision that inasmuch as tho right of tha state in this new exercise of its police power comes for the first time and alone from the enactment of the Wilson bill the state canuot the law until it posses anew law forbidding the liquor tafflc The opinion concludes The operation of criminal laws should not bo enlarged by implication but they should be strictly construed And where there is well founded doubt as to any act being a public fense especially not mal m so it should not Le declared such but should rather be construed in favor of the lib of the citizen It follows that the petitioner is entitled to be discharged and it is accordingly so ordered The Farmer for Prohibition At tho

Fliincll on the Liquor Trnfllc in Georgetown Bro G 0 Moore DEAR Sm1hc argument has been for the saloon that it contributes to the general prosperity This is an argument worthy of tention lor the question of the general prosperity or at least of individual prosperity is very close to the heart of the average man What is all tho noise about the tariff for except that it involves the question of money The n terest in the tariff shows conclusively how much the masses are concerned about matters involving their financial interests When theadvocateof the saloon therefore contends that the traffic benefits the country financially we may know that he will secure the attention of many who care but little for its morul effects on the question should therefore be frequently presented from an economic standpoint It needs dis cussion front that standpoint for many are induced to believe that the abolition of the saloon would bringuntold disasters upon the masses I have no way ofascertaining the value of intoxicating liquors consumed annually by the Amen can people but it is estimated that about one billion of dollars are pended in this way If this esti mate is correct and an allowance ofone mTiofthi8 sum Is made for the use of intoxicants for scientific and medicinal purposes and this would be probably a large allow ance then it follows that nine hun dred million dollars are annually expended for intoxicants to be used as a beverage This is certainlya very consid erable siim Supposo the use to this extent is continued for twenty years It will follow that eighteen billion of dollars will have been consumed that is that sum will have been expended for intoxi interest on this sum for ten years onehalf tho period we are making the calculation for count ing money at five per cent per annum straight interest amounts to nine billion of dollars This makes a grand totalof twenty seven billions expended in twenty years by the people of the United States for intoxicating drinks What does this expenditure mean Taking the figures shown by the census of 1880 it means this viz- That the people of these States will expeudin twenty years for in toxicating liquors the Value of all the real estate Of the United States andof all the personal property in the United States audoiull the farm products of the year 1879 in the United States of all the manufactured products of that year and the cost of all the railroads in the United States in the year 18V9 and of all the earnings ofall the railroads in that year and value ofall the telegraph lines in these same States andof all the steam cralt belonging to the citizens of the United States in the year 1879 and of all life insurance in force in that year and allof the gold and silver mined in the year 187g mho value of tho real estate in that year was in round numbers 13036766000 farm products 2213404000 personal property productsroads in the whole Union 5536 419000 the earnings of the railroads 580450000 sUamcraft 78848000 life insurance in force in the year 1879 1560756000 gold and silver mined 152381000 making a grand total of 27169 424000 So that it follows that time people of these States will expend in twenty years tho value ot almost everything in the States for intox icantsWhat will they get in return When you are inquiring into the question as to whether or not this expenditure contributes to the gen eral prosperity the question as to what they get for their money be importantWill hones I mean will the people who expend this money for intoxicating drinks get homes Remember that these vast sums are parted with by the people who drink the intoxicants What will they get for their money I ask again Will they get homes or bread or shoes or clothing or- an enlarged bank account or horses first or slow or oxen or sheep Remember Iam asking all the time about the men who furnish this money and Iwant to know what they get in return that con tributes to their financial prosper ity Will they get lands or or bonds or better schools or churches or health or muscle or powerIf what do they get Remember all tho time that it is the men who spend this money and whose prosperity is in question that Iam inquiring about The next question is how many are there of these men Compare their number with those who sell or manufacture tho liquors and who may in fact prosper in conse quence and see how the figures stand os to numbers Let us bring this inquiry a little closer home We will take Georgetown as an illustration There about eighteen places in this town where liquors are re tailed In order to pay house rent and support his family each proprietor must sell as much as three thousand dollars worth of his goods yearly So that there are expend ed by the people of Georgetown and Scott county about 54000 annually for strong drink This sum in twenty years expended an nually will amount to 1080000 Count the interest on this sum for fen years at five per cent and we have 1620000 Who will say that the people of Georgetown and Scott county will have their financial prosperity en hanced in the next twenty years by the saloons of this town to the extent of this vast sum No man will say it who has any regard for the truth AVell if this is not the effect it will follow that the financial pros perity of this people will not be advanced by the saloon I mean as to the general effect This sum is twice as much as all the property of Georgetown is assessed at so that the people will twice swallow their town over its barrooms in the next twenty years Nosy let me ask is the legislation wise that perpetuates a business that induces such expenditures of money A business the natural effect of which tho natural ten dency of which is to stimulate waste and givo back nothing in returnIts no answer to say that money is parted with voluntarily So do men who part with their money at the gaming table part with it vol untarily So do men part with their money of their own sweet will in lottery ventures On what ground do our lawmakers put their opposition to lotteries question is as to the effects of gambling andof tho lotter upon society It does not matter if the victims of theso vices ar willingvictims Society is inter ested in the preservation of these willing souls from vices This is all right as to gaming or literaItunnary is all right for society to iuteretere to prevent men from becoming thcI willing victims of these sources of immorality and waste of money Why not apply the rule to the saloon that is applies to these But I have written more than I intended to write Yours truly JAMES JJ FINNELL Georgetown Ky Jun 27 111 Whisky Cruelly to Animals Nut long since I published th statement of a gentleman who came to our Bluegrass Region as to th difference bttween our distilleries as he saw them here and as he saw them in the pictures A few days since a gentleman of this city cane to me und asked me to correct the statement ofn news paper reporter who was traveling through our city and c we were inhuman in the trcatnwntI of our cattle ChicugoChampiollII aver to an article in the National Temperance Advocate was to prove that the distilleries did good by putting grain into the form ofstill slop to feed cattle My father was one of most prominent and successful feeders of beef cattle that ever lived in this county and it is the thing about which more than anything else in farming I know most Ho never fed them anything but grass and corn in the fodder In view of all these facts I sa that the treatment that very large herds of cattle are receiving at a distillery in the suburbs of thi city between the TJalld L S railroads is a matter that ought to be investigated bycity and county authorities I do not know either to whom the distillery or cattle belong and hav no most remote personal interest in the matter They are being fed on still slot and hay the two being so arranged as that it would appear that the slopconstitutes much the large- part of the feed In my judgment the manner in which these cattle are kept is lia blc to induce disease in them that would bo liable to be transmitted to people who cat their flesh Ot course if the natural food and drinkof cattle is to cat grass and grain it can not be natural and healthful for them to have as their food and drink a slop which is no more their natural drink to say nothing of their food than to say whisky is the natural drinkof a human being and if they appear to be fatted at all the probability is that the fat is about as much lilt the healthy fist of a properly fed bullock as the bloat of a drunkard is like the fat of a healthy man There ought to be a man of some competency to judge such matters whose business it is to decide whether such meat should be al lowed to be sold in our market another markets In the lots in which the cattle are fastened during the rain weather lately there was not one square yard that was not a mud hole and around time troughs where the cattle stand to eat tin there are filthy pools of the overflowed slop in which tho cat tie stand It is not the nature of cattle to lie down in mud if the can avoid it but these cattle whets they can no longer stand have to lio down in such mud a a hog would not lie in except in hot weather Persons who are familiar with tho handling of cattle soon learn when they are feeling comfortable and happy Those cattlo in those still lot are the most miserable aggrega tion of animals I ever saw Refined and cultivaed sensibil ity as wo see in Burns poem- makes a man sympathize with suffering animals and in bit d weather oven under the most fa vorable circumstances tho sym of the right kind ot man Ligoesourio cattle are expose t tho Weather Tho horsemen of this country ill many instances provide better beds and rooms for their horses than thousands of poor people have and they claim that human ity as well as interest prompts them to do so Can such men consistently ignore the suffering of these hun dreds of poor miserable cattle right hero in tho suburbs ot our city Not only is the sight repugnant andrepulsive to our own eye and gives a bad impression t strangers who come hero but an atmosphere is created just at the most lavorable point ot tho com pass to be wafted over tho city pregnacy t theshadow of this distillery throws across tho highway where as freemen wo have an inalienable right to travel unmolested a poison not only as deadly as the U pas tree but as deadly to souls of men as time fumes andI vapors that arose from tho

for Fremont 1343000 and in 18b0 for Lincoln it counted 1866000 The record of time Prohibition party thus far is as follows the first Presidential conven tion was held in Columbus Ohio February 221872 This conven tion nominated James Black of Pennsylvania for President and John Russell of Michigan for Vice President These candidates received 5508 votes In 1876 the second national convention of tho Prohibition party was held in Cleveland Ohio and tho following nominees were made For President IIon Greets Clay Smith of Kentucky for Vice President lIon G T Stewart of Ohio They received 9522 votes The third national convention was held in Cleveland 1880 and nominated for President Gen Neal Dow of Maine for Vice President Rev II A Thompson of Ohio They ro ceived 10305 votes The fourth convention

the North only know of tho legalized crime of slavery by report the Prohibitionists everywhere are almost daily the personal eye witnesses ot the effects of tho le galized crime of the liquor traffic But there is another great fon taro of tho Prohibition ideal that tends to its ultimate accomplish IInotThat is the business feature of the question It seemed to bo the business interest of the Abolitionists ofI the North to perpetuate slavery iu order to supply tho cotton for Northern manufactories and to afford a market for Northern products of nil kinds But tho business interests of

late Louisville conference I am inclined to think that the opposition to woman suffrage in our party that exists principally in the western and southwestern of the State is growing smaller by degrees and beautifully hi opposition never has been of the religious which is the worst type of it but has been the result of a conviction that proper spear as Artemus 1Var called it was only in the domestic circle This is the remnant of a senti ment which was once universal and whichuntil within a few years obtained all over Kentucky which assumed the intellectual superiority of men over women It gradually displaced and cat be and will be most effectually dispelled by sending some of ou women orators through the west ern part of our State Mrs Niellis influence agains- woman suffrage has been very grea She stands very high among Pro hibition workers and it is generally understood among them the sho sent the Prohibitionist to th Legislature from Mercer I dont know whether her op position to woman suffrage is froi principle or from policy but I am to think it is the latter For myself I must insist th our principle must be our polic- and that we must support that which is intrinsically rightthough at the time it may seem to be bad policy For the Slate Organization Fund AUGUSTA KY Jan 20 91 0111 Brooks Lexington ICy Dear SirVe have circulated n subscription paper here and got 7

correspondenceCHARLES C MOORE Chmn 7th Dis My Answer to Freethinker A gentleman whom I have never met writes me a long letter which he says was not written for ubl- cation but which he says I may publish if I prefer He to himself as aCt tree thinker regards me in the same light says he is a temperance man and has dispassionately read the 1arguments of the Blade and that they have influenced him to the extent of determining to vote for Prohibition at the next Presiden tial election I believe he is honest and that he will do it 4 1 I will not publish the letter for toy0 long for my space prinei pic reason is that it sounds so much like things that I myself have said in haste and repented at leisure that I do not think they would b good for him or the public or me prints trying to make my heart to mellow with my years but I have a hard time to do it The tone of this letter seems to indicate that the writer is younger than I a and I can presume to advise him I know it is true that the pio neers in many of the grandest thoughts had to suffer for the fact and in our eyes the man who dares to think must ever be a hero but while I am now a poor exemplar of own convictions I can with righgt in thus speaking to e them to use the greatest gentleness andmoderation and forbearance in the discussion of all questions but more and supernatural mattersj r J This is not only right because it a right but it is right because it is mayJustlyfrom which to reason about these matters are so limited andoccult that it ill becomes us to be dogmatic The gentleman thinks that he byhisthoughtMy evenJ the most orthodox schools of Christian people have been kind di9awhile a few years ago I was pretty aggressive myself There is one thing about the Christian religion regarding whichi I can speak with great and that is that whatever may be supersadaptation of its code of ethics to the daily happiness of the human- r taco is immensely greater than anyman that I know seems to ap preciate otsible tendency to make men better Just as long as men judge tree judgeetheyI11tain them If therefore the gentleman who writes to me feels a conviction that theyn positionbythan others for I believe that near ly all educated people will admi- that truth is elevating and error debasingLet gentleman be a Prohi bitionist as he says his convictions lead him to be not that is by any means the summum bo num of human virtues but that it is simply a plan to remove what is recognized as the greatest obstacle to public and private virtue Then let him make the purity of his daily life an epistle read of all men that testifies to the truth of his philosophy rThere are three gentlemen it this city who have once sold liquor and who have quit it wholly or partly as a matter of conscience Two of them are freethinkers and I think the third one is and they are all personal friends to me paperI their recognition of my sympathy for them in other matters to gain them to the Prohibition cause and while I hope that this statement will not offend any Christian friend of Prohibition ProhibitiotIt sam that it should do so thatram the defender of the Pro hatrthis hold upon the sympathies of this class of thinkers and I want apeciad ordsuetagree with them goodtfree and untrAmmeledabout th becomed t resist the argument just as this gentleman says he finds is true with him-

Speaks on th Liquor Question Several persons lately have asked me if I was a reader of The Are na adding that it advocatedmy religious views I do not remember ever to have seen a copy of it but I am just now in receipt of a leafof it sent me by mail by some unknown friend and written on the corner are the words Stick this in a corner of THE BLADE It is your kind of talk The leaf contains a part ofan editorialon The Rum Traffic which certainly sounds like my gotemy politics and my religion SuI mixedup that I cant tell one from the other I suppose it sounds like my religious views too pubicationpart of itIWhen it is remembered that this is a literary magazine and not the organ of any antiliquor organiza tion the extract gains additional force It is as follows In olden times when Christian = ity meant something the great apos tie ot the Gentiles thundered forth these words If the eating of meat willseat no flesh while the world stand eth At the present time in the presence of a Christian civilization that is disgraced and dishonored by t Ii1JA I curse which all will admit is the most frightful source of crime and misery the clergy of the Christian apostleters are indulging moderately in wine in brutal disregard of the weak brothers who are stumbling while with a few honorable ex ceptions the clergy are not thun dering against this curse If with the vast influence which it wields was filled with the conviction of common justice lit by divine love for humanity and fired by the spirit of truth it could in a few weeks enthuse the civilized world t couldcreate public sentiment that would sweep its curse from the face of civilization So how ever has the rum power embedded itself in manyof the churches so powerfully do its feelers grasp the woof and web of fashionable Christianity and so loudly does the cry Prophesy to us smooth things come from the richlycushioned pews on the cue hand while so meaningless have grown the grand ethical impulses of Christendom cxfas a unit Yet this direct appeal peopse energetic agitation must be inau gurated It is idle to make laws and leave the public impulse dormant Arouse the people and the evil will disappear Make men see and feel that the rnmseller is a greater curse to the community than a professional thief that a saloon is a more positive evil to a neighborhood than a shanty filled with small pox patients and a fire purgt and misery breeder whoso colossal shadow envelops Christendom nu carries a thrill of misery a pulsa degradetP SFive minutes after writing the above a friend handed me- a of The Arena containing the editorial alluded to It is splendid magazine printed in Boston The Liquor Display at the Col 1uwblan Exhibition The New York Advocate i suggesting that any display of quors

volve the question ol morals The province of law is to see that no man shall trespass upon the rights of another or unnuces ancIA man can observe Sunday as a Sabbath or fail to do so without at allopposing any other man in his rights and it is therefore not a subject for civil legislation But no man can make or use liquors without rendering himself more or less liable to damage others and therefore such an exposition should Iikmenue oa t hid product At a recent exposition at Cincinnati for the purpose of raising funds for the support ofa society for the prevention of cruelty to animals
