T!:ere '.vas no discrimination eser- g come by states; k can come in no other way. unless by an armed resistance to law in the .states it should become ncc sary for the General Government, as ci.-e-i in framing the document whatever, prohibition cannot be carried iu a state till a coiiMderable number of voters in the state are themselves prohibitionists, so .latior.al prohibition cannot be a practical ssue, until a considerable number of states are prohibition states. When three- quarters of the states agree, the consti tution of the United States may be amend ed and national prohibition be the rule of the land. It is sometimes argued that the thirteenth amendment aoolishing slavery in the states was submitted by Congress before the states had taken similar state action, but we remember that at this time there was so large a majority of free states that they controlled the Govern- ment, and carried on a great and terribl< war. The question of slavery on its po- litical side was a controversy between states, concerning which the General Gov- ernment and a National legislation was the only Court of Appeal. The prohibi- tion of the liquor traffic is not a question between states, but between the people of a state, and National political action is not at this time the proper court in which to try this cause. I have taught this doctrine from ocean to ocean. Could I now fail to stand for the application of the truths I have taught This is why I could not, if I were a voter, enter the political field for the nominees oi the Pittsburgh Convention. I honor Joh P. St. John. He has my high esteem, my formation from all sides and sources be- profound respect, and so has Mr. Daniel, fore reporting their conclusions to Con-j gress. which, by the way, that body adopted almost entirely. Which side exhibited the more abihfcfi and statesmanship, the more sagacity, practical good sense and patriotism, the keenest desire to benefit the country's bread-winners? Is there an intelligent workingman who carefully looks into this matter fairly -who will not admit frankly th$t the Eepublican party is the one to handle this all-important ques- tion in the future as it has in the past? We agree with Mr. Weed, the two parties' professions are now practically alike, but their practices in the past, in this re- spect, are vastly different. The bill did nut propose to iuihteu the burdens ol tholaioring man by relieving the m-eo>saries of life, sugar, nee, or- anges, ieir.ou?. &c.. of 'their enormous taxation, rather than take off the duties on luxuries. >uch as liquors, wines, kid gloves, dice, billiards, &c. It did not take into account that some ol onr industries are yoUDg, weak, struggling for existence and require the fostering care of protec- tion for awhile yet. while others need no further aid to sustain them, but are al- ready capable of being put upon the free list. It simply essayed to reduce the ex- ternal revenue without considering what the consequences would be by such a re- duction. Yet this wretched and harmful measure was supported by every Demo- crat in the House of Representatives ex- cept thirty-nine. Now compare this with the painstaking and intelligent efforts of the tariff commission, appointed by a Re- publican President, that spent the entire summer of 1882 in carefully examiuing this intricate and perplexing subject in all its phases, gathering testimony and in In tbe course of his lecture the other night, Joseph Cook toofc pains to condemn the theatre in extenso, notwithstanding the fact that he has not been inside of one in twenty-five years. We wonder what Mr. Cook would think of a man that would at- tempt to criticise Ticonderoga of to-day, after he stated that he had not eeen it in a quarter of a century ? Joseph Cook has perfect confidence in the election of the Republican ticket this fall. He thinks the second batch of Mulligan let- ters have greatly helped rather tian injured Mr. Blaine, since they have explained many things in the first lot that \were somewhat involved and suspicious. There is yet no ground for even guessing who will be appointed to the vacant Secre- taryship of the Treasury. Substantially all of the Treasury employees ^want Assistant Secretary Coon elevated to the place. Out- side parties think that some prominent New Yorker will be appointed. Keely, of motor fame, claims to have dis- covered a great natural law, which, we sup- pftse, is that the credulity and gullibility of the average stockholder is absolutely bonnd- Democratic Mass Meeting.

Vermont News. —The new Billings library in Burlington will be entirely completed before the close of next June. The fall term of Middlebury colleg< opened Thursday with a freshman class o: eleven, while the university at Burlingtoi had over half a hundred new students. It evident that there should be a eorubinatio] of the two institutions. The number of oxen in Vermont in 185i was 49,000, there are now ouly 19,000. How can a watch—no matter how cost- ly—be expected to go when the main spring won't operate? How can anyone be well when his stomach, liver or kid- neys are out of order?
