THE COLUMBIAN AND DEMOCRAT. BLOOMSBURG, COLUMBIA COUfrTY, PA.
0. B. Elwell, Ituu...
FRIDAY, MARCH 8, 1880.
Benjamin Harrison, of Indiana, be
came the twenty-third President of
the United Stab's nt a quarter heforo
one Monday, March 4th, nmid sur
roundings the most Inspiring and at
tho samo titno thu most dinonnragintj
that ever ended tho installation of a
saooessor of Washington. So many
Amerioan oitizena never before asem
bled in Washington to celobrato the
acoension of a Chief Magistrate. Thero
never before were preparations raado
for bo long and imposing a procession
to escort tho now President from tho
Capitol to the White Houss or for so
splendid a parade.
But tho rain, cold and continuous,
fell all day, and tho new President took
his oath of office under an umbn-lla
surrounded by officials of State who
could not sit down heoause thero was
not a dry thing to sit upon, and in tho
presence of a crowd of people abso
President-fleet Harrison and Vice-President-elect
Morton, together with
Senators lloor, Cockrell and Callom
wero driven to tho Whito House a
little beforo eleven o'clock, where they
were joined by President Cloveland
and his members of tho Cabinet, and
all started for the Capitol. Soon after
their arrival at the senate chamber nt
the Capitol, Vice-President Morton was
sworn in as president of the Senato by
Mr. Ingalls, president pro tem. Im
mediately after tho closo of Vico
President Morion's speech in the Sen
ate, and when the Senators had been
sworn in, General Harrison, President
Cleveland and about two hundred
others made their way to tho phtform
on tho east portico of tho Capitol,
where it was decided to administer
tho oath of office to the Prcsident-eleot.
General Harrison stepped upon
the small elevated platform with
the Chief Justice and tho Congression
al committees. On his head was a
shining beaver, which was rapidly
saturated with rain, despite the un
brella held over him bv Colonel
Can ad ay. As he stood before the
multitude, surrounded by only a fw
hardy statesmen, cheer after cheer arose.
Umbrellas were lowered and tho multi
tude excitedly waved their hats and
General Harrison touched his lips to
the Bible in the hands of Chief Justice
Poller as he pronounced tho words of
obligation, and the crowd roared and
roared with apnlanse.
Everybody on tho stand stood dur
ing the long inaugural addrtss not so
much out of respect as because every
cha'r was soiking wet. Mr. Cleveland
and the Chief Justice stood by the sidn
of the new President as he read hi
address, holding the manuscript in his
left hand and gesticulating freely with
bis right, his head protected by his hat
pulled down over his forehead and the
umbrella Sergeant-at-Arms Canaday
held over it, his neek sheltered by his
coat collar and his eyesight assisted by
a pair of steel-rimmed spectacles.
Half a million people were soaked
to the skin and chilled to the marrow
watching the parade. Fifty thousand
men who formed the procession were
saturated, too, by the stubborn drizzb
that trickled from the skies all day.
The raw wind from the northwest
made everybody shiver. Pennsylvania
avenue, which was a sheet of muddy
water yesterday, was a river to-day.
Thero has never been such a scene in
The unbappiest man in Washington
was General Greelv, the head of tho
Weather Bureau, who had predicted
fair weather. Everv man's trousers
were smeared with mud to tho knees.
Every woman's skirts were bordered
w'th mud, too. Celebrated beauties,
diplomats, statesman ot high degree,
wallowed through the mud without a
murmur of complaint. Everybody
was bent on seeing the parade and
Harrison. Everybody saw both. Iho
parade, of course, was tho feature of
the day. The rain helped to spoil it.
President Harrison has selected the
following as members of his Cabinet:
James G. Blaine, of Maine, Secre
tary of State; William Windom, of
Minnesota, Secretary of Treasiryj
RedSeld Proctor, of Vermont, Seore.
tary of War; Benj. F. Tracy, of New
York, Secretary of Navy; John Waua
maker, Pcnna. Postmaster General;
John W. Noble, Misouri, Secretary of
Interior: W. II. H. Miller, Indiana,
Attorney General; Jeremiah McLane

Prohibitory Amendment vs. Personal Liberty.
Absolute liborty is that, which is ex
ercised by Pirates and Nihilists, unre
strained by any laws human or divine,
in selfish disregard of tho rights and
lives oi otbere.
Civil liberty, is natural liberty re
strained, so far and no farther than is
necessary for tho welfare of the com
munity. Tho term is nscd to denote
tho amount of absolute liberty which is
actually enjoyed by the various citzens
under the government and laws of the
state as administered.
The real issue, resolves itself into
Does the prohibition of the dram
shop industry, restrain individual
liberty more than is necessary for the
The prohibitory amendment adopted
in Iowa, by a majority of 29,759, on
the 27th of Juno, 1882, was in these
"Section 20. No person shall manu
facture for sale, or sell, or keep for
sale, as a beverage, any intoxicating
liquors whatever, iucludinc ale, wine
mid beer. The creneral Asaembiv shall
by Jaw prescribe regulations for the
enforcement of the prohibition herein
contained, And shall thereby provide
suitable penalties for tho violation of
the provisions hereof,''
The meaning of our proposed
amendment Is precisely the same; at
thoucrh owinc to botohcrv iu tbo word
ing of it, persons not learned in the
law. aro ant to misunderstand it. It is
The manufacture, sale, or keeping
for sab, of intoxicating liquor to be
used as a beverage is nereuy prouiuit
piI and anv violation of this prohibi
tion shall be a misdemeanor punishable
as shall bo provided by law,'
In a technical sense, tho word
'manufacture?' as used, wonld include
the case of a single individual, waking
wine from crapes, or any other alco
holic liquor for his own use, but not
lor sale, lint tho words ot n ioglsla
live enactment! if of common tuo, are

obvious and ordinary eiumiicatton
and Import) and aro not to bo taken in
a technical sense utile's it clearly 'p
pears that tho words wero intended to
be applied differently from thcr ordi
nary acceptation. Tho real intention
of tho leuislaturc, when ascertalnul
by tho courts, will always provail over
the literal senso ot terms. And the
intention is to bo collected from the
context and tho ovil to be remedied.
1 Kent, 510 in its common acceptation
thu word signifies, tnanufacturu for
use and sale; rennirinz tho hands of
skilled mechanics following that occu
pation, at au establishment erected lor
tho purpose. Tho fnot that thoro if
no mWotiief to be rem 'died iu the
inc. of individuals milking wine oi
other alcoh ilio liquors for use hut not
for sale, takon in connection with the
contoxt of tho proposed amendment,
and tho other fact that it is extremely
doubtful whether tho legislature has a
right to restrain the personal liberty of
a citizen in this respeot when ho in
jures no ono but himself, tho propocd
amendment would not be construed t
apply to tho easo of making wine or
other alcoholic liquor for private use,
hut not for sale. Tho amendment
therefore if adopted, will n it unntci-s
sarily intcrfero with tho individual
liborty of the citizen in respect of
making, buying, importing, keeping
and using as a bevernce alonholto or
any other sort of liquor. It strikes
directly only at the sale: in other words
nt tho liquor stores and dram shops.
Tbo object is to do away with tho
dram-shop as an unbecoming business;
a vocation unliko other industries, in
that tho loss dilliirently it is plied the
better for tho community: and whioh
business possibly is plied more in
dustriously than it other wise would be,
in order to get tho money back that it
posts to make it legal by license
Henco. tbo higher the license, the
stronger the motive to increase the
sales. It is right hero that those in
terested in the liquor traffic dodge thf
ipsue by presenting a false ono. They
charge that prohibition proceeds on
the false ground that alcobnlio liquor
is a poison, and that any habitual use
of it is an evil. Too prohibitory
amendment proceeds on no such
ground. It proceeds on tho theory
that the licens-j laws, by giving a
monopoly of tho liquor market to a
comparatively few persons, thereby
builds up, and establishes an artificial
industry; an industry that could not
erow spontaneously, like agriculture,
trades of mohanics and other nefnl
railings; except for tho monopolist in
advantages of the license laws. Under
the practical operation of these laws
as administered by th( respective
courts, tho counties aro divided up in
to liquor districts, corresponding some
what in size to the common school
districts; with ono or more 1ecaliz"d
dram shop in each district. In Phila
delphia, the Judges have lately en
larged tho liqior districts; thereby
rendering the monopoly of the market
in such districts moro valuable. Tho
immediate effect of this is to discom
mode the tipplers aud drunkards until
the saloon owners shall have ttmp to
adjust their accomodations to suit their
The only substantial and practical
lifference between the amendment if
adopted, and tho license laws, is this:
The amendment will simply do away
with the uniqual and monopolistic
features of the licenso laws and place
all on an equality. Our lionse laws
are very comprehensive prohibitory
laws; for all persons except the com
parative few to whom tho courts giant
the monopoly, undr tho namoofli-
cense: A monopoly so va'uable that it
builds up millionmrsin tbo itquortratttc,
ho are thus enabled to put hundreds
f thousands of dollars into every
amendment campaign; in order to save
and ki ep to themselves uni qnal advan
tages in the licen o laws. To make,
it plainer that the monopolistic features
of the licenFO laws builds up and estab-
bsbrs the saloon industry, let us divide
the people into two class' s, viz; tipplt rs,
whioh includes drunkards also, aud
non tipplers. Now nothing can bo
plainer than that, if tbo tippling class
were not recruited irora tune to time
from tho non tippliniz clai-s, most of the
tipplers who would not reform would
graduate as drunkards, and rapidly
die out. Now how are recruits to the
tippling class usually obtained? It is
a common saying among saloon keep
ers, that "I do not do business for
the fun of it 1 do business to make
money.'' He displays his variety of
liquors in the most inviting mannei,
and reasons thus:
"I havo paid for my high license
and now it is lawful for me to sell all
I can short of making drunk. Most of
ray old costomcrs aro no longer de
sirable. In many instances their
creditors have acted on the old adage,
"when a man begins to tipple let his
creditors secure their debts:" and ba e
closed in npon them. With others
their money has run out, and their
ragged wives and children aro begtn
ing to beg, and to unreasonably blame
, 1 . J-!. I -1
me; wnen l am out laiunuiiy uyrying
tho license laws whioh tho people have
voted for. I need new customers ot a
more respectable character, the more
so on account of my increased expendi
tures; and where aro they to corao
from! They must necessarily come
from tho non-tippling class.'' Then ho
begi'ns to spot tho young men whom
he thinks would make the most prout
able customers; and tho most agreeable
clerki era set to work to ropo them In.
Politicians, lawyers, clerks and agents
who have tho handling of money, and
rich men's sons are especially looked
after, Hence, parents are often slrick
en with grief and astonishment, to
learn that their sons have hecomo tip
plers. Bat this is juBt retribution for
voting lor the license laws. Tho oauso
for wonder is, what they do resist tho
In this connection, tho following
question is asked of Ministers:

"Woe unto him that giveth his neighbor
drink, that putttst thy bottle to him,
and makest him drunken also,"
(Habakkuk 2nd Chapter, 15 verse;)

If it applies, It follows tint our II.
