Support Your Local Paper.
The local paper occupies a peculiar niche.
It has a singular mission to perform. It
fills, in other words, a characteristic posi
tion. It may be the mouth-piece of some
party, or sect, or independent in all things,
and while those, whose views it presumes
to uphold, are expected to_ support it, yet
over and above this, it has an important
mission to fill that is not conceded to any
profession or other branch of business. In
short it is expected that it advance every
interest which will have a tendency to build
up the community in which it is published.
It advocates, advises, agitates and exhorts
people to do whatever the editor believes
to be to the best advantage of his readers,
and though he may be mistaken in his
views, yet his efforts set men to thinking
and to acting, and while they may not feel
like doing exactly what he suggests, yet
they are stirred into action and something
is done, and good comes out of the agita
Do people ever think what a few lines
in a newspaper may be worth to them ? Do
you ever think, reader, when you refuse to
subscribe for a local paper, or pay a reason
able rate for a little advertisement, for
which you would receive three times more
value than for the same amount of money
invested in any thing else, that two or three
lines in that paper may be worth hundreds
of dollars to you ? If you do, and still re
fuse, you are a bad citizen, and the com
munity would be well rid of you, and don't
go West, because you are not the kind of
men the people want there. They want
live and liberal men. But, perhaps you
are incredulous and flatly deny that any
such advantages are ever realized. Then,
listen: A few years ago a gentleman wrote
a paragraph or two and inserted them in a
newspaper. The paper met the eye of a
gentleman who acted upon the information
imparted, and to-day one of the finest im
provements in the State is the result. Land
was scarcely worth a song in that neigh=
borhood three years ago, to-day it is worth
hundreds of dollars. Who receives the
advantage of the enhanced value of the
land ? The parties who live in the imme
diate neighborhood, and, yet, if those very
men were asked this hour to subscribe for
the newspaper that has made them thou
sands of dollars, they would do, in all pro
bability, what you do, refuse to subscribe.
People very frequently complain and
say : " Well, these editors don't do any
thing for the community. They ought to
agitate the matter. We could have furna
ces, rolling-mills, and all kinds of manufac
tories if they would only tell men of capital
our resources and our advantages. If I
were an editor I would do," thus and so.
Yes, you would, indeed ! Editors are only
men, and sometimes not the best specimens.
Being only human they feel like other por
tions of the "earth earthy," and allow them
selves to be influenced by some very little
things. They are generally "poor devils,"
without any money invested in lands, or
any to invest - in manufactories, and they
feel that they have nothing to make by
such a course as you suggest ; they feel
that you who grumble at them, own all the
lands and have the capital, and that you
would realize everything, and yet when
you are asked to subscribe for a paper, or
to insert and pay for a little advertisement,
you offer to pay half-price or say that you
can get somebody else to do it for so much
less. Ain't this your fit, exactly ? In
stead of not only subscribing and adverti
sing every thing you have, and paying lib
erally therefor, you should encourage every
body to do so, and then you could expect
to have some claim upon the editor and
have hint to act in conjunction with you.
It is the duty of every good citizen to sup
port his local paper in return for the ad
vantages he is sure to receive.
Good papers are only to be maintained
by proper support; and one good paper,
gotten up respectably, making a creditable
appearance, has more influence than a
half-dozen such papers as were printed by
our misguided Southren friends during the
rebellion. It is said justly that "commu
nities are judged by their newspapers," but
unless the community in which they are
located stands by them they cannot be
maintained. Good papers cost more money
than bad ones, and they are worth more to
their patrons. If you desire newspapers
to make money for you, yon must expect
to pay them a fair equivalent in return for
what you ask them to do for you. No
charges are made for what they say in fa
vor of the best interests of the community,
but you have a right to sustain the bridge
that carries you over. A great many per
sons are very anxious to have their town
written up, but the moment it becomes ne
cessary to contribute any money toward
supporting the paper that does so, that its
proprietors may make a decent livelihood,
they are off. This is our experience.
The following is the text of the
Joint Resolution relating to an increase of
compensation to Assistant Marshals, intro,
duced into the House of Representatives
at Washington, the 31st of January, 1871
and referred to the Committee on the Re:
vision of the Laws of the United States :
"That in all cases where the average per di
em compensation of assistant marshals for
field-work in enumerating inhabitants at the
ninth census of the United States, under the
rates of payment fixed by the law of eighteen
hundred and fifty, and the act or acts supple
mentary hereto, shall not amount to five dol
lars a day, the Superintendent of the Census
is hereby authorized to add to such pay an
amount sufficient to give to each of said assis
tant marshals the total sum of five dollars per
day for such field-work: Provided, That the
number of days for which such additional al
lowance shall be paid shall in no case exceed
the number of days fixed by the act of May six,
eighteen hundred and seventy, for completing
the enumeration upon schedule one."
A bill providing that Assistant Mar
shals, who did the field work for the cen
sus, and whose pay did not amount to $5
per day, receive pay to that amount passed
the House a few days since.

The Local Option Bill.
Below will be found the text of the Local
Option Bill now pending before the Legislature
of this State, and of which we spoke lasi
week :
To permit the voters of every Ward, Borough and
Township in this Commonwealth to vote every
three years on the question of granting Licen
ses to sell intoxicating liquors.
SECTION 1. Be it enacted, 4.c., That at the
next annual municipal election in every ward,
borough and township in the Commonwealth,
and at the annual municipal election every
third year thereafter, in every such ward,
borough and township, it shall be the duty of
the inspectors and judges of election in said
wards, boroughs and townships, to receive
tickets, either written or printed, from the
legal voters of said ward, borough and town
ship, labelled on the outside "license," and on
the inside, "for license," or "against license,"
and to deposit said tickets in a box provided
for that purpose by said inspectors and judges,
as is required by law in case of other tickets
received at said election, and the tickets so
received shall be counted and a return of the
same made to the clerk of the Court of Quar
ter Sessions of the county in which such
wards, boroughs and townships are situated,
duly certified as is required by law, which
certificates shall be laid before the judges of
the said court at the first meeting of said Court
after such election shall beheld, and shall be filed
with other records of said court; and it shall
be the duty of the mayors of cities, and of
the constables of boroughs and townships, or
of any other odlcer whose duty it shall be to
perfom such service, to give due public notice
of such special election above provided for,
three weeks previous to the time of holding
the next annual municipal election in every
such ward, borough or township, and also
three weeks before the annual municipal elec
tion every third year thereafter.
SEC. 2. That in reviewing and counting,
and in making returns of the votes cast, the
icapectors, judges and clerks of said election
shall be governed by the laws of this Common
wealth regulating general elections, and all
the penalties of said election laws are hereby
extended to and , shall apply to the voters,
inspectors, judges and clerks voting at and
attending upon the election held under the
provisions of this act.
SEC. 3. Wherever, by the returns of election
in any ward, borough or township aforesaid,
it shall not be lawful for any license to issue
for the sale of spiritous, vinous, malt or other
intoxicating liquors in said ward, borough or
township at any time thereafter, until at an
election as above provided a majority shall
vote in favor of license.
Sec. 4. Any person who shall hereafter be
convicted of selling or offering for sale in this
Commonwealth any intoxicating liquors, spir
ituous, vinous or malt, without a license,
shall be sentenced to pay a fine of fifty dollars,
and confinement in the work-house or county
jail for six months for the first offence; for the
second and each subsequent offence a fine of
one hundred dollars, and confinement in the
work house or county jail one year Provided,
that it shall not be unlawful for the miners of
vineyards to• sell, on their own premises, wine
of their own manufacture, in quantities not
less than one gallon, to be removed and not
drank on the premises.
We have not had any time to examine the
abo - Ve bill critically, but presume it will cover
the existing evils so universally felt under the
present miserable system. There is not a par
ticle of doubt in our minds, that the majority
of the voters in any ward, borough or town
ship should say whether there should be li
censed hotels or not. It is a question for the
tam-payers because they have to foot the bills
in the end either in the Courts, Jails or Alms-
Houses. Intemperance costs every county in
the State of Pennsylvania at least one-third,
and we believe one-half, its annual expenses.
This looks like exaggeration but it is never
theless true. And under such circumstances,
it being a fundamental principle of our gov
ernment thatthe majority shall rule, why should
not the majority of the voters say whether they
will have license or not? If they desire to pay
for trying men, who get into difficulty through
the excessive use of ardent spirits, board them
in our jails and alms-houses, let them do so.
We are disposed to pay our own way, and do
not feel like "paying the piper" for anybody
else if we can avoid it, and, therefore, will
vote against license. We have often thought
that some system should be devised, to levy a
tax upon men who deal in ardent spirits, to
pay all public expenses which can be traced
directly to the excessive use of intoxicating
drinks. It would materially interfere with
the business we have no doubt.
We want it distinctly understood that we
make no war upon the creatures of a vicious
and abomuiable system, but upon the system
itself. Men who engage in a legal business
are entitled to the respect which courtesy ex
tends to any man endeavoring to make an
honest living. So we respect the man while
we deplore his business, and we intend, to the
beat of our ability, to make his business, now
legal, disreputable, and if possible, vote it out
of existence. This it is our duty to do as a
good citizen and as a well-wisher of the com
munity in which we live.
But since we are upon the subject of tem
perance, there is another feature of the tem
perance question that we desire to look at for
moment or two, and then to refer the subject
to our readers. We are frequently asked why
so little is accomplished in behalf of temper
ance and that a constant agitation is kept up
to so little purpose. We are told that temper
ance organization after temperance organiza
tion has arisen and gone down until the most
sanguine dispair of ever being able to accom
plish anything. This we admit, and we con
fess that we have tried hard to cypher out the
immediate cause, but have uniformly failed,
and unless it is to be atributed to the fact that
the most impracticable men in the world get
into, and thrust themselves to the lead, of the
majority of the temperance organizations of
our period—men who have but one idea, and
that a very small one—we are unable to an
swer the question. Some cynic has said that
the temperance organizations consist of strong
minded women and weak minded men, and
there has been considerable ground for the
snarling clasification. These people will be
at Harrisburg to doctor or oppose this bill.
They were at Harrisburg last winter and yet
they consider themselves the best of temper
ance folks, but they are as impracticable as
the merest noodle, and as illiberal as they are
impracticable, and by their illeberality they
drive all liberal and seuelble peurle away rrom -
them. We hope if the bill does not please
them, they will at least have sense enough to
stay at home and keep their peculiar ideas
and notions to themselves. If we cannot get
total prohibition, let us get at something that
may be an improvement upon the present sys
tem, certainly it cannot be made worse. We
have little fears of Parker vs. The Common
The questions raised in that case
have been overruled and ignored in anY
number of instances.
