To-day wo moot in Convention ac
cording to a provision in our Conntitn-

brato tho anniversary of our organi
zation. Tho ileanini duty ot extend
ing to you tho uand ol wolcomo has de
volved upon mo; and in oxtondinir to
you that welcome, I feel that I am but
receiving you in tho homo of your
choit o; A year has passod nineo upon
this spot lh firnt mcoting of this Tem
perance Union was hold. A few of
tho progressive Temperance norkora
of our Society saw that the good of tho
Murphy movement would bo lout, un
it's" wo had Homo rules to guido and di
rect our workings and wo had true
Temperance workers its our helpers;
and to day this privilege is duo in a
great degree to their ell'orts. In tho
name of tho members of tho (irampian
Tamporanco I'nion, 1 thank you for
your coming amongst us, and assure
you, that they will make your visit one
of pleasure to you, and wo trust it will
be one of profit to us. By your delib
erations wo expect to bo bcneflttod.
We look for an awakening of a still
greater interest among our people.
Wo hopo that a stimulus may bogivon
producing further aud more cxtniled
efforts in behalf of our youth that they
may bceotno intelligent and sober citt
icns. Wo trust that from your efforts
the people of this neighborhood will bo
led to feel tbat it is not only thou duty,
but their privilege, to givo their influ
ence as well as their means to extend
tho Temperance work ; and thus will
they realise that their money and timo
v ill bo converted into intelligence and
virtue in tho minds of thoso in whoso
society thoy and their children must
expect tolivo. I wolcomo you because,
as an Intelligent pcoplo, wo must wol
como overy movement which looks to
tho elevation ot individuals of what
ever class, aud which tends to increase
tho welfare of tho community.
Wo wclcomo you as a convention
in which wo claim a special interest
an organisation comprising thoso who
sustain a near and important relation
to tho public welfnro ; pontons whoso
intelligence and mental culture have a
professional as well as a personal con
nection with tho advancement of soci
ety. May yourshadow never grow less;
may the great and good work still pros
per in your hands, ami its influence'
extend from tho A llantio to tlx 1'acitio,
from the Arctic to the Antarctic. The
stars and stripes ore long will float over
tho whole continent.
(!od speed the day, and wilh it may
tho I'ennsylvaniaTcmporance wtjrkorH
carry prohibition to tho heights of
Cbimborazo and Cotopaxi tho valley
of tho .ms-.on, the pampas of tho Ar

What is tho object and duty ol tho
Stifle, is a question which wo of to-day
may well ask. Js it hot to secure the
best interests ot its citi.eni and to
guarantee to them the inostimablo
privileges of lllo, liberty, and tho pur
suit of happiness, and all that will elo.
vate and ennoble, and to free from all
that will dobase and degrade? Is it
not to raise tht lowly and strengthen
tho weak, which it manifestly a publio
duty.hcnco of tho State? , Is it not the
protection ol society from foos within
as well aa enemies without, ol which
the pnnlsnmcnt of the criminal la but
a moans? Are not these a part, and
not the least part of its duties ? But
whon it a traffic which is an
acknowledged injury to the peoplo,
private and publio, docs it not step be
yond ita objoct and take a stand direct
ly opposite to its duty ? Does it not
becomo in this particular, instead of
tho guardian ol our nguls ana liberties,
tuo tool ol tne unnguteouB me screen
and protection ot iniquitios giving its
sanction and tho appearanco of right
to that which no earthly law can make
right because opposed to tho moral and
llivino 1 1
It is undoubtedly the duty of the
Stato to protect the weak from the
oppressions ol tho strong ; out it a
armed one portion of its citizens, that
they may proy upon tlio unwary ana
futtun from tho weakness and follies of
the race. Not that this was the origi
nal inUnt of tho license law, but such
it is to-day. Framed to restrict the
sale and use of intoxicants, it has be
como tho lion in tho path of reiorm
tho shield and perpetuation, instead of
the opponent ot tho train c.
The .State has liconscd thesalo of in
toxicating liquors. Is this all? What
has it done f at lias opened the flood
gates of destruction upon tho land. It
has torn away tho young and tho fair
into a bondago worso than death. Jt
has armed brother against brother for
bis destruction. 1 1 has protected dons
ot iniquity and given promiumstor vice.
It has snatched tho son from tho arms
of his father, and the husband from the
bosom ot his family, and whirled them
on to quick destruction, despite the
cries of tho suffering and hearkened not
to their prayers. It liasnorvod tboarm
of tho murderer and erected a thou
sand gallows. It has filled our Courts
and jails with criminals and our land
willi paupers, and taxed us for their
support. It has tapped the veins of
our prosperity and drawn Iborclrom
its own lifeblood. It has called down
the wrath of jtistico upon tho peoplo
and the whirlwind of destruction tho-
tret to fall upon thcin. And what
for all this has it received ? Tho gold
of them who havodono evil ; tho sup
port of tho moro than futherlct-s, antl
tho Bustenanco of tho starving and na
ked, l-'or all this shall thero be no
retribution? Kvoiy drop ol blood
drawn by tho driver's lash was requit
ed by a thousand poured out upon
tho fluid ol battle ; and shall wo go tree?
But does it not- bear within itself its
own great punishment. Its agent in
all this has been tho wine cup. How
much of good, ol virtue, must it tuko to
offset so much of evil f How much ex
penditure, treasure for education and
lor charity, is mado necessary by this
so great destruction f How much is
for no avuil ? and still it is all a dead,
dead loss a loss not only of treasuro,
and effort, and power, but of lilo, and
uopo and ileavun r A loss not to be cal
culated in this world, not in dollars
and cents, but in prayers and tears ; id
manhood destroyed, and the promises
of childhood unfilled ; in tho cries and
struggles of the orphaned and qf thorn
who are more than widows; in the
lives it has blastod, and thosouhi it has
lost to Heaven ; and not only in tho
mitory it baa brought, but in the peace,
joy, and happiness which should have
been tho portion ot thoso who brought
bitterness with pleasure and met de
struction in tho way of life.
I bavo said the stato has done all
this; but what is tho slute? la it the
land wo tread? Is it, as in tho days
ol Cu par of old, who said, "I am tho
state 1 II e are tho state, and u e havo
dono these' things. If wo are not,
another Ciraar has arisen whoso namo
ib rum. Shall Cicsar rule and wo bo
willina slaves t Shall wo obov his now-
or and murmur," ll' ar free ! " Heav
en forbid I Our Bafuty, and tho frco-
Uom ot our lathers lorbid that Una
should be. Shall wo turn traitors to
the cause of right and cast a stain up
on tho namo of freedom that namo,
tho watchword pf our land 1 It shall
not bo. Wo must bo froe not to do
wron; but to livo aright. Shall
there be no premium on virtue ? I lovo
the frcodom of our laws, but 1 would
seo virtuo placed beyond tho reach of
avarice ana passion, and wbercevcr
thoy would respect it. It is in our
hands. 1 The peoplo aro tho Stato, and
virtue still survives. In vnion there
Ladies and Centlemen : It is a
prineiplo generally conceded that law
makers should not bo law breakers ;
yot in the history of our Slato wo find
that a certain Legislature committed
murder. Yes, it actually killed tho
Local Uption Law, and on its cornso
gave birth to tho I. Ichiro law as it now
exists, which to say tho least is a dis
graco to legislation, a terror to tho
community and a libel against tho
rights ol num. Iiy a cureory exami
nation of tho law wo find it something
hkothis: liiccnso for selling intoxica
ting drink may bo granted by tho
Court of Quarter Sessions for one yonr.
Tho amount to bo paid to procuro
liccnso varies from $5(1 to $700, $700,
where tho yearly sulos amount to moro
than !0,000, and ."0 whero they
amount to less than $1,000. In the
liccnso for a bond of $2,000, and a peti
tion signed by twelvo respectable men
is required before the demon alcohol
can be legally unveiled for public viow.
Can thoso conditions bo complied with?
Tho bond may bo given, tho liccnso
fee paid, but can respcotablo men bo
lound to sign a liconso paper f I leave
this point to your consideration. Bon
der it well.
Liconso having been secured, the law
then lays restrictions on the holder of
it. And this part of tho law is sub
timely ridiculous. Those restrictions
roquiro that liquor shall not be aold on
Sunday, or on election days, and why?
It Bold on Sunday twill most likely
be drank on Sunday, and if drank it
becomes a disturbing elcmont that
causus a gloom ovor tbe sanctity of the
day ; and to soil it on election days is
simply tODifdnnger tho purity and froe
aio of tho ballot. W hat Solomon's
our Legislature must have boon com
posed ot lo make such wlso (?) restric
tions. Only think I days in a
year and I olootion days aud, 52 Sun
days deducted thorcfrom leaves 3111
days lor liquor to bo sold to inca
paliato man loi a propor observance ot
Sunday and an intelligent uso of tho
ballot. Vt hat wisdom! what wisdom ! 1
Now I ask if It Is detrimental to tho
publio interest to sell liquor on Run
day and olootion days (and the lawn
inlbr that it is) ia it not equally to to
scl It tho other 311) days?
Again, none is to Do sold lo drunk
ard. If this restriction was complied
wilh none would bo sold, lor tbo man
who takes a drink and walks upright
is a drunkard, the same io kind but
not in degree, as tho ono who takes
four drinks and wallows In tho ditch.
Tbo logical sequence then is that tho
holder of license must violnto the law
or ho will havo paid a feo to the State
for tbe privilogo of carrying on a busi
ness sbo torbidB mm to do. nut none
is to be sold to minors. This is the
only good feature of tho wbolo law,
and it pierces as a two odgod sword to
tho heart ot a motner whose busband
has reached the apex of inebrioty and
is roturncd to her worso than worth
less by the left fiaud of tho law, while
tho nebt band tears from her bosom
her son, who bus just becomo of ago to
fill his father's wako. (Jontlcinen, is it
any wonder that women aro scoking
tbe right of still rago when the law
robs them ot all that ib dear on earth
while thoy aro palo and motionless as
a marblo statue, ana are unable to pro-
vent it for tho want of a righteous
law. f or Uod s sau and humanity s
suko let us givo the women a vote, and
the traftio in intoxicating drink will
lorevcr cease. k
1 bavo ono little bright oved boy
and I had rut her follow him to tho
grave than to seo him become an ine
briate ; but 1 speak the honest Bonn,
monls of my heart when X say the
chances are favorablo for him to be
come one. Under existing law the
breach in that direction .s widening
every day and aa soon as he reaches
manhood the law loaves bim a proy
tor unprincipled landlords to do witb

r eali red by parontsevcry day through
out the leuglh and breidlh of our

Let us now dwell lor a moment on

union of people withia certain pre
scribed limits of longitude undlaliludo,
and with us is comprised of three do-
yai-tmcnls, Legislative, Kxec.utivo and
udiciary. Tho duty of tho first is to
mako such laws as will secure men in
life and property, and aid them in
their development of their intellectual
and moral faculties. Tho duly ot the
second is to cxecuto tho law. lS'ow, if I
either of theso departments would
perform its duty as delegated to and
required ol H no liquor could oe sold.
Tho Legislature could not have passed
a license law while under tho law as it
now is, it could not be sold if tbe Execu
tive did not belray its trust, and if tho
Judiciary would do its duty the law
would bo declared senseless jargon
and stricken from our staluto books.
Tho duties of tho Stale thou is not to
givo license to men to cngago in a

of mon thus engaged. Ono more
thought and 1 conclude, the conflict

has boon long and fierce. Our victories
won have been local and not general,
temporary but not lasting ; still it is en
couraging to look along our ranks and
sco them slowly recruitodandsco hero

Our causo is just and right, and right

Tho importanco ot literature as a
factor in Temperance work or; in
other words, of Tomporanco literature
cannot, in my opinion, do more torci
bly illustrated than by reference to
tbo influence which is exercised upon
tho world of mankind by tho vnrious,
X might say multifarious, forms of litora
turo which have boon and aro now be
ing spread broadcast throughout tho
land upon every subject, whether ro
ligioUB or irreligious, moral or immoral,
chnsto or obsceno whother sciontillc,
political, sacred, or general.
ihrougn tno aid ol mo printing

provements, tho facilities for communi
cating and circulating thought have
been increased ten thousand fold. The
almost innumerable und gigantic powor
presses which aro kept constantly run
ning to supply tho want that is croated
rh the minds of an intelligent people
by popular oducation aro destined to
exorl a mighty inlluonco for good or
lor evil, lo seo that the good may
prodrimihato is tho business of all good
poonlo. Tomporanco workers, then,
should avail themselves unsparingly
of this engine of power, not only in
disseminating tho seeds ot Temperance,
but in counteracting and thwarting
tho efforts of tho arch enemy, Intem
perance. it might dc argucu by eomo that tbo
Inebriate seldom rends, and hence can
not bo reached ly this method. Ad
mitting this to bo tho fact, which is
not, howovor, conclusive, wo havo still
a host who havo never, or seldom at
least, indulged in tho intoxicating
bowl to such an extent as to stultify
tho roasoning faculties and destroy
their desire lo read ; who aro standing

Thoso should bo enlightened ; these,

sympathetic natures, who would scorn
lo commit an oven act ol cruolty or

would shudder at tho thought of a bo

demon of intomporanco, of running the

all tbat pertains to this groat quostion
has prevented them Irora attending
meoliiigs whore tho subject is discussed,
or taking any part in the work, might
bo reached by tho circulation of Tom
poranco literature
Ijot us aupposo a case, and, In doing
so, It noed not bo wholly drawn from
the imagination. When, during a
long Winter ovoning, gathered around
a oheorful tire, wife and children eager
lo bear tho nows which the day's mail
has brought tho father, in looking over
tho papers, finds one which does not
belong to his regular hndi'ot, h picks
it up and commonooa roading it. Il is
a paper published in the interest of tho
Tomporance cauae. " Somo ono bus
been kind enough lo sond it lo mo,"
ho soliloquizes ; " X am not particularly
iotorcstod in the subject, but X will not
be so unkind as lo throw it aside with
out reading it." Xlo finds an article
headed "A Sad Affair." Ho roads it
aloud. It is an account of a circum
stunco which had recently occurred
in a neighboring county. A young
man, while intoxicated, had committed
suicide. Tho namo is familiar; ho
knows him well. His family connec
tions wero highly rospoctahle; his
father was a thrifty merchant, whoso
timo had boon chiefly given to businoss,
and, though not ignorant of tho habits
into which his son was drifting, be
always lucked the lime or tho disposi
tion to take any part in Temperance
work. Tbo scono at the funeral was
vividly portrayed the mother and
sister crazed with griet ovor tbe un
timely and unnatural ending of tbe
lilo ol a loved son and brother who, had
it not been lor strong diink, might
havo lived to bo the pride of tho house
hold and an ornamont to society.
Tho picture calls lo the mind ol tbe
reader the fact that he loo has a son
on whom ho dotes, and who is liable
to thosame temptation. He remembers,
also, that he too has cvor regarded
the Tompcranco movomont as ono in
which he had littlo or no interest in
fact, ho has sometimes spoken light of
it ; but now bo takes a dillercnt viow
of tho case' "What if such a lalo
should befall my boy!" Ho pauses,
as if for reflection, and then with firm
resolve declares, " From this hour, X
-shall do my duty ; it shall never rqoro
bo said that my innuenco has boon
thrown on tho sido ot Intemperance."
His resolution is faithfully kept, and
tho Tcmporunce causo has gained a
useful member.
And this single instance ol tho effect
of Temperance literature, circulated as
it should be Into ovcry household, may
be ono among thousands ot a some
what similar character. Who, then,
will for a moment question the inllu
onco of literaturo as a factor in tho
causo of Temperance.
In short, through tho agency ot
printing, thosuhject might bo discussed
in all its bearings. And not among
the least are its financial features.
Statistical tables might bo made from
official and other reliablo sources which
would no doubt astonish tho impartial
thinker. Let tho books bo opened and
fairly kept Dr. and Cr. Givo the
dovil his duo; placo to bis credit all
the blood bought earnings of bis dark

chargo up a large share of the costs ot
our criminal Courts, our prisons and
our alms houses, tho reckless wasto
and destruction caused by tho ovil in
a pocuniary point of viow, tben add to

mitted through tho agency of whisky,
wilh nil tho dark and damning evils
growing out of tho same. Strike the

As my timo is limited, 1 bavo givon
in this ossay but a tew of the points

may be done by spreading Temperance
literature. Much moro might bo said

A remark able career of social impos

in the great world of New York "so
oiety" ho was Uaron do Moiney, or, us
he was morefumiliurly known, "Baron

introduced into what are called tho
best circles of Now York. Silly fash

noticod by this tonsorlal artistenfflurri,
and ho was generally a lavorito with
the females who woro honored wilh

In this way of mutual interchange

There is something of a moral in
this littlo story of llaase alias "Baron
Carlos." It is this: tbat American
parents would do well to scrutinize
tho credentials of at least throe-fourths
of tho alleged scions of nobility who
present themselves as acquaintances of
their daughters. Old residents ot
aslnngton may romombor how
somo half century ago a cortnin tailor
in tbat city assumed after dark to
be a Count, aud assucb bad the entree
to what was, at that timo, by contrast
with tho preBcnt, tolerably "good

time, and in the evenings, undor tbe

ijiorno of tho Venetians, ho caporud
and posed as Count Sorncthing-or-othor.
A gcntloman who had met the
jester socially had occasion to call at
the tailorsbop to bo measured tor a
suit of clothes. In tho backroom ho
stumbled on tho "Count." The murder
was out, it is true, but how confused
was "socioty" at the discovory I Per
haps this person assumed to bo a
"Count D'Albora" perhaps it was
something else. At all ovents, had his
imposture and its exposure taught
"society" a lesson, he had not lived in
vain. But, as we all know, the exact
rovorso is the case, for Amorican "so
ciety" is as servile in its adulation ot a
Count, real or alleged, to day, as it
was filly or seventy-five years ago.
Tho Millars' International Exposi
tion recontly hold at Cincinnati is well
worthy the notice ot oven thoso who
may not bo especially intorestod in tho
milling industry. Tho Enquirer nows
papoieof that city vory properly rec
ognizes tbo gloat prominonco of Iho
milling and grain interest ot our
country, and notos tbo rapid advances
made in this business, within tho past
lew years, as revealed by the deliber
ations of this largo assembly of millers.
A few years ago tbe United Stales
manufactured only ita own flour, and
a comparatively small quantity ot our
ordinary quality for export; whereas
il now produces the very best flour
mado in the world, and more of it than
any other country. Our flour which
formerly ranked as a second or third
grado article in the markets of tho
world has, through rccont improve
ments, been made to equal the most
celebrated Kntopcan flour, and we
now furnish it in large quantities to
Kuropo, lo India, to Africa, to China
and Japnn, to tho Kust Indios, and to
tho various countries of South Amer
ica. Tbo npnng wheats oi tne unitca
States, which, until tho recont discov
eries of propor means of handling
them, havo been thought inferior, are
now recognized as tho best grown, and
Knglish millers say that they now

Tho greatnesa of our grain and mill
ing Interests may be estimated from
tho fact tbat thero aro about twonty
live thousand mill in tho United
States which employ not loss than ono
hundred and fifty thousand people,
and represent an invested capital of
$50,00U,UUU. Xb0B0 mills, il run stoad
ily one-hall the year, could grind every
bnshol of wheat growfl in our country
hence the importanco of manufac
turing all our wheal into flour for ship
ment to foreign countrica in order that
our mills bo kept employed. The
wheat export of tho I'liited States in
1H7!) was 12:',.l53,ii.l0 bushels, valued
at $130,701,079; tbo flour export,
during tho samo year, was 5,f2!,714
barrels, valuod at $2,57,730. These
figures indicate what a field the mill
era of our country have before them
a field which they ought not fail soon
to occupy.
Tho Enquirer rightly concludes that
the United State is to provide in tho
future tbe bread of tbo world. Send
ing abroad in 1800 but 4,000,000 bush
els of wheat, and in 1870 but 3li,000,.
(100, it sent In 1870 about 125,000,000.
In Kurnpe only Itussia, Hungary and
Turkey produce more wheat than
thoy can consume, but the surplus
which thoy furnish does not begin to
supply tho European demand. The
general Kuropoan deficit still leaves
Europe wanting annually 200,000,000
bushels, and of this vast amount of
wheat tho United Stales must furnish
the greater share. It is tHeretoro
ovidont that Kit rone must look lor it
main supply of wheal to tho United
States, and it ia also plain that the
growing ol wheal and its manufacture
into good flour are industries of the
utmost importance to our peoplo.

The effort now being mado at Car
lisle, thi Stato, lo educate Indian
children are worthy of encouragement.
Tho ultlmalo improvement of the In
dian can only be assured by trying to
teach bim, while a child, what is use
ful and necessary for him to know in
order lo properly appreciate and ap
propriate lor his own use and web
litre the industries und arts cf lhoo
races which have beuu iutluuiitod and
whose condition has beon advanced by
tho quickening power ol civilization.
Tho incalculable benefits ot oducation,
tho golden fruits ol modern soicntitio
investigations, which, through our
publio school system, are put within
tho reach of tho White and tho Negro,
havo hitherto been lost to tho Indian
child since tho last named baa beon
always Ibrcod to live wilh his savage
parents tar distant from all Influences
which tend to mako mankind wiser
and bolter.
We do not in the least doubt that il
is quite impoBsiblo to civilizo tbe older
wild Indians, but with their children
it is different, they can be taught and
mado, at least, to realize the advantage
of having a thorough common school
education. That this work, however,
may bo prpporly done Indian children
should be removed from the rough
Western frontier and put at a point
whoro they can be surrounded with
every influence likely to render them
amenable to law and order, and at the
sumo time provide them with the
knowledge essential lo their improve
inent. At Carlisle, in tho beautiful
Cumberland valley, tho young Indian
is furnished evory opportunity to wit
ness Iho many valuublu products
which tho earth when properly culti
vated can be niade to yield, and thus
tho youthful savago doubtless will
soon bo led to entertain a commcntla
blo desiro for the substantial comtorts
which he sees the pale lucos about him
so keenly relish.
It may be urged that this method
of disposing of tho much-mooted In
dian question is an extravagant
method. But it must bo remembered
that it is not proposed at once to edu
cate all tho children of the sixty-five
Independent tribes ol Indiana in tbe
United States but only a few children
year by year of each tribe trusting
that in duo timo these children as
thoy grow to ho mon and women may
bo activeagenuui teaching their rela
tions tho advantages of better ways ol
living. His Btulcd on reliablo authority
that since tho establishment of our
tlovcrnmeiit not less than $720,000,000
has been expended in the attempt to
control and civilizo tho Indians, ar.d
the result of this great expenditure,
as our readers aro well aware, is very
unsatisfactory. The Indiana remain
vicious and savage, and are in fact but
pan pore roaming over one hundred
and fifty millions of acres of land
which thoy do not to any appreciable
oxlont attempt to cultivate. Hence it
is thai tho Indian must bo taught the
lesson ol self relianco and obedience to
the laws. His real progress in knowl
edge and in the acquisition of wealth
must rest on tho solid foundation of his
own merit and industry. The Indian
and tbo Negro cannot be always bol
stered up by our Government; thoy
must learn tho lesson long ago acquir
ed by white men, namely, that with
out tho fuculty of paying for tbo mor
row, of providing for a roiny day, no
true civilization is possible. No amount
of silly Rcntimentalism crontcd nnd
fostered for political purpose by
scheming demagogues can prevent tho
inferior races from being subject to tbo
inoxorahlo laws which govern all man

The public examinations throughout
the county this year will be held dur
ing tbe latter part of August, a little
later than formerly. We desire to

W. II. Lingonfeltar, the efficient
Secretary of tho Morris Township

solves nobly.
Wo aro thankful, indeed, for the
promptness ot so many Boards ol Di
rectors in forwarding thoir annual re
ports and certificates. Up to tho 1st
day of July we received, approved and
forwarded to tho Department of Public
Instruction Ibe reports and certificates
of thirty four districts, leaving ouly
eight yet lo hear from, viz: Curwens
villo, Burnsido and Wallacolon bor
oughs, and Pike, Knox, Graham, Chest
and Woodward townships. W hope
those districts will report soon.
For some time previous to tbe an
nual examinations each year, teachers
get anxious for their certificates, in
order that they may apply for a school.
To all such we would say: Select tbe
district in which you cxpoct to apply
for a school, sond to the Secretary a
well written and scholarly application.
Then, when the lime of the examina
tion lor that district come around,
present yourself and, In th presence
of the Board, stand the examination.
Wo hope that no schools will be lot
until the time of tbo examination,
when we can consult togolher and bet
ter satisfaction will be given.

The Board has mado no change since
