representatives, and that our own great
Republic is destined to be the guiding
star to all others. Under onr Republic
we support an army less than that of any

In the'first verse above quoted Solo
mon speaks of wine as a blessing ; in the
TUlier verses he speaks of wine as a curse.
Does he contradict himself J Why does
he speak so differently of wine ? It is
not because wine is used temperately in
the one case, and intomperately in the
other ; but the reason lies in the kind of
wine spoken of. In Keel. 9 : 7, and in
all other parts of the Bible where wine
is spoken of as a blessing, sweet, unfer
mented and unintoxicating wine, so com
j mon at that early day, is intended. On
, the other hand, iu Prov. 20 : 1, and in all

That kind of wine which iutoxicates the

Christ made To be candid, would
Christ be the Savior of the woild, if he
had made and sanctioned that which is
everywhere in the Bible denominated as
a curse and a symbol of God's wrath ?
Would he not rather be the world's de
stoyer ? It is beyond all question that
Christ made sweet unintoxicating, inno
cent, and most delicious wiiie The good
wine which Horace, Plutarch and Pliny
and others of that early period, say was
common at that time among the Jews
aud Romans, aud which is fully admitted
by learned students of history and the
Bible. Why then slander the Lord
Jesus Christ 7 Why then brand Lira
and Jblackeu his character with -such in
famy J Why pronounce the " woe "
against Lim for giving drink to his neigh
bor, and for pnttiug his bottle unto him,
and to make him drunken also. Mortals,
who shall yet stand before Christ's judg
ment bar, would do well to tremble at
such profanity and blasphemy.
2ud. Local Option does not take away
our liberties, but confirms to us their full
enjoyment. Statistics show that there
are at least 100,000 drunkards in our
State. Not less than one-half this nnm
ber arc bound hand and foot, and are to
day the meanest slaves to dram, while
the other 50,000 are now having their
clanking chains strengthened and tight
ened every day. License is rivoting
these chains on those already bound and
on those now being bound. License is
doing its utmost to bring forward fresh
victories. The young, the unsuspecting,
and the most noble of our citizens are
entrapped and enslaved. Once enslaved,
the license system seldom gives up its
victim until "Mania a potu," or drunken
fits, lays Lim down in the grave. Do we
deserve to be called a free people, with
one hundred thousand slaves in onr
midst f Are we not one of the very
worst of slave States I Does our boasted
American freedom mean no more than the
liberty to make slaves of our fellow
citizens and of ourselves too, by a license
law 1 Will the men in any county or
city be so supremely selfish as to be un
willing to deny themselves the trifling
pleasure of dram drinking in order to
perpetuate their own liberty, or to res
tore liberty to enslave drunkards within
our borders ? The great Paul said, ' If

drunkard and his wretched family, to re
move his temptations, to make him a man
again, and his miserable family happy
once more. The writer knows of a doz
en or more such tyrant ridden men, who
wish to reform, and Vho will vote "against
license" to break, if possible, the spell
that binds them to a living death. Shall we
then have true liberty, full aud pure as
God designed V Just as well cry out
against our fornication, adultery, theft
and murder laws, as against Local Op
tion, as far as liberty is concerned. True
liberty is a practical surreuder of person
al liberty for the general good. All else
is licentiousness ud unworthy of a good
3rd. Local Option is not demoralizing
in its tendencies, but is promotive of good
order and morality. .That the license
system has been demoralizing scarcely
needs proof. Abraham Lincoln, Gov.
Uartranft aud many others may have been
in bar-rootoj and remained eober and be
came great and good, but this was bo in
spite of tlio bad influence of bar-rooms
That some have remained sober when
tempted does not prove that thousands
aud tens of thousands have not become
drunkards and utterly worthless when
similarly tempted.. Who does not know
that oftcu the dram seller becomes his
own best customer! Who does not
know that often the dram seller mukes
drunkards of his own sons, sons-in-law
and even his grandsons ? Who ever
knew a bar-room tend to make a man a
christian, or even moral T The fabled
Upas tree could not send forth a deadlier
poison. On tho other hand, there have
been (or twenty years Local Option towns
and counties iu Great Britain and Amer
ica, and also prohibition States. Gov.
Pelliam and Speaker Blaiu, and many
other eyewitnesses testify that great moral
good and order have resulted from strict
temperance laws. Local Option will ut
terly disgrace the liquor business. Then
truly respectable people will just as little
thiuk of violating the prohibitory liquor
j, , , -i, f - i ,: ,v t
1-s as o be gudty of violating the laws
i against Uisuonestv. or nncieanness. ixo
doubt there are hypocrites enough among
tipples and topers, who will get dram by
evading the law, but they have been
made what they are by the license sys
tem, and not by Local Option. Perhaps
a little rigid enforcement of law would
straighten out their crooked consciences
and amend their drunken ways What
we wish is a chance under Local Option
to try to reform them by law and kind
ness. 4th. Local Option will not injure the
country's prosperity, but promote it. It
has been said that Local Option will in
jure the larmer. r.ven granting tuat nis
corn might bring a few cents less per
bushel, he would still make money by
having less tax to pay. Law-euits thrust
upon the farmer by liquor, penitentiaries,
insane asylums, poor houses, which arc
filled in great part by liquor, eat np the
earnings of the farmer, as well as the
earnings of all classes. Breweries, dis
tilleries, liquor sellers, and owners of
rented hotel's and taverns would be bene
fited even if Local Option would make
their money has, it would niaka their
real happiness morr. Even if such would
be compelled to go into other business,
they would be delivered from the ever
prescut, ever gazing fact, that they are
siving off tho vices of their fellowmen.
If Local Option injures any of our citi
zens in their busiucss it will be the phy
sician and lawyer, Even here, while it
may lessen the amount of busiuess, yet
it will render their professions more- plea
sant, surer payment of foes, and less
temptations, to some at least, to extrav
agant expenditures. Local prohibition
will eventually improve the actual enter
tainments in our hotels. . Under the li
ccuse system often very little attention
has been paid to auythiug in our hotels
apart from the bar-room Often as every
traveler knows to bis sorrow, the beds
tables aud stables arc in a state of utter
neglect Why is this ? Because liquor
selling: is tht great business, and not the
keeping of a house of public entertain
ment. The bar is run so as to make it
pay, and the rest of the establishment is
a mere sham, a very unimportaint ap-
peudix. a nuisance tolerated by the dram
seller only to keep up the appearance of
giving entertainment. Local Option
will in all such cases change mere liquor
shops into real hotels. In our towns and
cities there will of course be fewer hotels.
but these will be better equipped, better
beds, better tables, better stables, better
attenra ice and at no greater price, as
Potter county and the State of Maine
clearly proves-. Thus every occupation
will be advanced and every real interest
promoted by liquor prohibition, f ami
lii's, schools, churches, courts of justice
and onr legislature will be purer aud mjre
efficient. The 693.000 000 we yearly
worse than waste to support the liquor
traffic in our State will in the future go
to enrich, to beautify and make truly
grand our great old Keystone.
We say then, down with the unmitiga
ted curse, the liquor traffic. Thrust it to
the wall on next Friday.

The fire originated from a defective chim

at from $20,000 to S-50,000, which is
partially insured. Four persons were
slightly injured by a falling chimney.
The activity of the firemen and citizens

A Candid Tiew by Careful Observer.
It was not an explosion of the Dem
ocrat and Register that made so much
noise last week ; it was just the cork
that flew out, which all knew it must
sooner or later do, with its pressure of
Benziue. The safety valve Lad been
tied down, but it blew out with all that,
with such a considerable force that it
struck the Republican office such a blow
that it left its black, poisonous indellible
marks on its fair columns. Shame I oh,
shame 1
They say Local Option is a d lusion
and a snare. Ab, we fear that intem
perance is a far greater delusion, and
many, very many, are caught in its fatal
snares When t!i? monster strong drink
has coiled its 'poisonous folds around the
doomed soul and dragged it down to end
less ruin. Duty calls, stop that soul !
Make Local Option one of the means to
stop it.
They say in the first division of their
article, It will not reduce crime. Now,
reader, their article is so weak and frail,
that we must handle it carefully, or it
will fall to pieces. It does not require a
very careful observer to see that the
writer of the article was in very shallow
water, with the appearance that he dived
deep in wliisky. Now, does not intem
perance open the floodgates to all crimes,
from petty theft to murder. Liquor is
the ereat destroyer. Its victims are of
all ages and classes ; it poisons the child
in the nursery, while it strikes down the
man of herculean strength and sends him
to rot in a druukard's grave. Crime,
murder, fraud, adultery, and a thousand
other shameless practices are the terrible
fruits of intemperance.
In the eccond division of their article
they say It will reform no drunkards.
It is certain that it will make no new
ones. Are younj; men in danger from

their money for drink etrong drink.

In the third division of their article
they say It will make hypocrites of the
people. Our object is to remove the very
thing that makes hypocrites or men. H e
have enough backdoorway drinkers or
sneak tipplers uow. This being such a
disgraceful, hypocritical way of getiing
rum that those who have not already
fallen to the low disgrace will bo saved,
when the temptation and tempter are re
moved. They say L'vpior is not demoralizing.
They quote part of the Cih chapter of
Proverbs. Intemperance destroys all
that is good and noble and intellectual in
man, and souus him, often rapidly, but if
uot rapidly, surely down to beggary aud
eternal infamy. Go to the ruin seller,
ask him for good whisky. With a proud
look pleased to get you money and a
lying tongue, he will tell you his liquor
is pure, not adulterated, lie will take
mouey from the poor drunkard, which in
many cases deprives poor innocent chil
dren of the money they need for their
comfort, while the children must be cared
for by the township, the borough, or the
poorhouse, and sometimes before the
keepers of these get them they starve or
die by disease brought on them for wuiit
ot proper care or teed, ana me aousc i

drunkard is filled with wicked imagina

Many a landlord or rum seller Lave

to go astray in an evil way, he shall fall

Editor Sentinel : I hear it stated
in Mifflin and Patterson that all the
miners will vote for the continuance of
license. Let me tell you, Mr. Editor,
this is a lie, and ouly gotten np by a
bought party, in order to strengthen their
doubtful course in the breast of some
poor deluded weak narrow minded
men, who are afraid, like the Democrat
and Rfgiiter, that there will be no sale
for rye and wheat that it will go down
in price that the farmer will starve try
ing to raise it unless allowed to convert
it into still and swill for feed, I suppose.

Miners know too well the curse, of the

our misfortune
The majority of ns can neither read or
write for the simple reason that as soon
as the children are able to go to school
they are compelled to go to work in order
to help support themselves. Wheu these
boys grow up to manhood they can neith
er read nor write and to can derive no
pleasure from books or home, and as the
mind craves something to feed npon, no
place gives so much enticement as the
saloon, or the jolly bar of Tom or Dick,
and here their evenings and money are
spent, away from their families, their
wives and children many times lacking
the very necessaries of life On pay day
there is very little left after paying off
the score ; sc the butcher aud the store
keeper are kept out of their money uu
' e next pay day, and 1. tie lommy
aai Johan.cy are 8ent to work and kept
there to help pay for the di inking car
rousels of the father and make emU meet,
which with all that in roost cases it does
not do instead of going to school.
These boys grow up iu tho same old
trodden path.

one and all, do not be changed from the
right by the soft words they call freedom,
