"A popular government without popular information, or the means of acquiring it, is but a Prologue to a Farce or a Tragedy; or, perhaps both. Knowledge will forever govern ignorance; and a people who mean to be their own governors must arm themselves with the power knowledge gives."

Porter mentioned as an example of exceptions to enforcement within the new ordinance would be "provoked" animals under the control of the owner. (photo by G. Morgan)
