Mr. Windham spoke first, fairly and
candidly viewing the record ef the
two old parties, showing tho absurdi
ty of the States Rights doctrine as
taught and practiced by the democrat
ic party, fie showed by the record
that in tho late war the soldiers in the
field voted almost unanimously for the
republican ticket. Just here we might
ask if this same democratic party that
is calling se leudly fer soldiers' votes,
did net by their representatives in
cengress, fail-to pay the private sol
dier in the field two cr three years aijo.
Senator Tefft next spoke, showing
tiiat the republican paity could ba
safely trusted with affairs of State, as
the loss was very small in ali collect
ing and disbursing of public money

LOUUVILLK, NKB., Oct. 9, 1-SJ.
Ed. Ufiiald: 1 notice in your iast
issue an extract from a Mate paper,
to the ell'ecL that l epuoiicans ouht
not let personal feeling ami small, t-r
local matters influence their action on
general party principles, with your ap- '
plication of same to Cas county, and '
as this is in line viih soma rt-dections j
of my own in regard to commingling
local and general puliiics, it may not j
be inappropriate for me to ciil the !
subject uji again.
It often happens that men who agree
on general principles differ in the
method, or means of putting those,
principles in to practice. This may
be from honest convictions wf expedi
ency, or from st llish motives and am
bitions. So far as it is the former it is
commeiidable.for its tendency to bring
out ideas, and develop principlws, but
so far r.s it is the latter it is very much
to be remei-ied, as the great bane of
American politico, whh
and I believe is il i s
uiiia wiimni oy
il as much t:s I
every true patuot. it
cal nnales are lo be
nevertheless exist in ail pttitus. They
are not only found in the n pu'd'-caii
party, but all parties alike ar-,- eontin-
ua.i j utiiwi cu nun iiivciiiiii ivuicu-
tions; especially so where the party is
in the ascendency, making its favor
an object to tha ambitious.
I am a believer iu tha theory that
the right will eventually prevail. All
it asks is a fair hearing; truth crush
ed to earth will rise again. Let local
differences bo fought where only local
issues art at stake; but where the
principles of national parties are at
stake local feeling should be laid aside,
the nation is greater than the individ
ual, the county, or State. In tlie com
ing eleclien ther i are national princi
ples at stake. Wo net only elact Elec
tors, who ie to help elect a president
for the neat teur years, but we also
elect a State Legislature which is to
elect a Uniied States Senator; and the
republicans of Nebraska need to send
their voice up to tho national halls in
no uncertain sounds; for the grett
principles cf the atienai republican
parky, and ayaiusi the disorganizing
dectriues ef states Rights. V7euid
any republican defeat the great princi
ples for which the party has labored
twenty years, let him. use his influence
to defeat republican candidates for the
Legislature. Would he sustain those
principles let him help aend a solid re
publican delegatien to the Stale Leg
islature, to help elect a stalwart Uni
ted States Senator.

aro m re than usually iiiUiibted :
in this question just now. A propo-i
sition is before the people of that state
for an amendment to their organic
law, prohibiting the manufacture and
sale of intoxicating liquors within its
borders. Beside this question all
others of a merely political character
sink into utter insignificence. Prohib
ition involves more of financial wis
dom, true i olitical economy and social
and ethical science than all the par
tisan platforms that were ever written
or promulgated. This is not mere as
sertion ; but is capable of being sub
stantiated by abundant testimony de
rived from official sources.
Take a brief financial view. Maine
last year, under prohibition, saved
twenty-Jict millions of dollars in its
drink bill, according to Gov. Perbam,
as compared with an equal number of
people in any other state where a li
cense system prevails. Should Con
gress, in its wisdom, devise a measure
or measures which would save to the
pewple f the whole country this
amount, there would be general re
joicing, and the memUers would lie
greeted with tiio plaudit. "Well done
good and faithful servants." But pro
hibition lias done this and propor
tionately in all communities where it
has been tried and it will do it again,
only giva it a chance. Think of it;
the liquor-traftic abolished, and one
tltousaiul millions of dollars saved to
the people of this country in a single
year for all the Iojs, and wastage,
and expenses caused by this traftic
reach this vast sum, cr nearly so, ac
cording to official reports, and tho
most reliable estimates.
We are informed by all who have
had anything considerable to do vsitk
the criminal jurisprudence of this
country or of England, and in the ad
miuistration of charitable institutions,
bc.th public and private, that at least
sevriily-five per cent, of tho poverty
and crime in any community is tlie
produce of the sa.'o and use ef intoxi
cating liquors. Wo might give abund
ant evidence to prove this, a single
case in point in this state, which we
have had occasion to use before.
Ti'crn ia a count v which has not had
wldtl.in its ix-iders a place where
ii jurr poll for about thirty-live
year , the lifetime of a generation.
During t!m: time it bar1, sent but ono
prisoiKM t the ppnifentiary, his crime
being committed after becoming in
toxicated ;:t a saloon in an adjoining
county. As a general rule lbs calen
der d' its Criminal Court is a blank,
and civil li'igalicn isextensively light.
The people are inieliigptit and moral;
their taxes are lighter than in any oth
er county, and more promptly paid.
We cite this to show what prohibition
can do and will do for any community
w here it is enlorcad. Crime is prac
tically extinct in this county. There
lias not been as much of it, and of
iniquity in thirty years as there is in
Chicago, with its three thousand sa
loons, in twenty-four hours. It also
disproves the assertion that "you can
not legislate morality into a people."
God thought he could do it when he
enacted the prohibitory laws contain
ed in the decalogue, and experience
has proved that human Iavis will
likewise do it.
Again, we are told that a prohibitory
law cannot be enforced. The con
dition precedent to the enacMnent of
such a law is that a tnajoritv of the
voting population of a state, or a Irss- j
er political division, should be in fa-i
vor of it. When it is the case there!
is no reason why it should not ba en
forced equally with any other law.
The fact is, that it is generally better
enforced wherever it exists, than are i
license laws where they exist.
The passage of Ihe constitutional
amendment upon which the people of
Kansas are soon to vote, would be of
incalculable value through all time.
It would be worth millions every year
in a financial point of view, for in
states where license prevails the tax
payers aro compelled to put their
hands down deep into their pockefs In
meet the expense caused by the ironic,
with the results of thr-ir own b-.'.-T
and business. Socially, morally, a; d
religiously, at this stage in the hi!:.iy
of this young stale, constitutional pro
hibition would bo of the greatest val
U3. By securing peace, order, and pro
tection it would attract the best kind
of population, and drive from tho
midst of the people a business which
has not a single i Adeeming feature to
commend it to favor or tolerance of
any com m unit v. standard.
