The New Liquor Law.
A New Liquor Bill has just passed the Leg
, islature of Pennsylvania, and become a law by
receiving the signature of the Governor. It
is not more than a year since an enactment
almost prohibitory in its charneter i reeeived the
sanction of both the legislature and the excels- I
tine branches of our State government, and
nothing can more strikingly exemplify the
changes of popular will, than the fact that both
these incase!, may fairly be regarded as the
infereece to be drawn from the State elections.
The last October settled the lltte of the meas
ure known as the restraining law, and its re
pent was therefore fully expected. To be sure,
when the Senate and House differed so radi
cally as they J4l ou the details of ilia measure
to ho substituted for it, there seemed for a
time a chance that the repeal might fail. But
the result has proved otherwise. A compro.
mien bill the been framed and passed. It is
so elaborate in its nature so to assume the char
actor of a system. Its main features may be
epitomized thus: In Philadelphia and Pitts.
