reasonably have been expected from the beginning the split1heronow that onehalt of it will go to the Prohibitionists and the other will simply be an annex to Democracy or a subdivision of speciallelfislution dorse the resolutions lately passed at Ocala Florida form one sec tion and those who combined with the Prohibitionists to elect Kern and Helvorson to Congress from the West lately form the other party The cause of the rupture was the decision of the Ocala party that no negro could be a member of the Alliance The call of the other party for a meeting at Chi cago on the other hand invited the Colored Farmers Alliance to meet with them Of course the discrimination against the negro as a raco was unjust To discriminate against the uneducated regardless of 3 race is right anda charity to the negro to induce him to edu cato himself platformcation for female votes It should have demanded it for both sexes Prohibitionists could not sym pathizo with any organization that would refuse fellowship to sucha man as our Black HectorJGeorge Clark a fentidays since the e liars Su1fJ Mr re nIsf jitPltmwl a man wHo told the story r cle Tom to Mrs Stowe Ho is a good Prohibitionist I talked a few days since withI a mulatto reputed to be of one of the most prominent Presbyterian clergymen of this State lie was a Prohibitionist and his tongue indicated the probable correctness of his distinguished clerical descent 1 could not consent to endorse anyorganization that would do bar such men because they are not white The Western body of the Na tional Farmers Alliance has en dorsed Prohibition and the indi cations are that theywill fuse with thiQ Prohibitionists Such labor leaders as Powder ly Beaumont and Travelliek are pronounced for Prohibition and are in sympathy with the Western body of tine Alliance men It seems to me tint a fusion of thisIVUstern division amTPow derlys people and the Prohibi is almost u foregone con clusion The fusion will not re quire the Prohibitionists to modIcrate in the least their on the liquor traffic but may de mand of them some sympathy with some of the more conserva tivo principles of the Alliance peopleIwe never any of these our National plat form will allow this I have always doubted the ex of but two planks in our platform one is prohibition of the liquor traflic and the other is woman suffrage I object to nay class legislation for farmers or else I am opposed to dictating rates to railroads because it is unjust The railroads are the private propertyof those who own them they have the right Yorktoto Chicago from 13 to 1 as New York Voice complains that they have done and on the same principle they have the right to 100 for that faro or to take people for nothing Over the turnpikes of our country the law should watch with a jealous eye and dictate the terms noon they shall conduct their business because the turn piko companies take the roads that originally belonged to the nblic crud the people to ray for traveling over them in their improved condition while the right of locomotion was ono of the inalienable rights of freemen Railroads are the original creation of those who build them No reasonable man would deny the right of a railroad company to tear up its road or to cease to operate it all if it thought best t do so without any apology to anybody for its course It it would have the right to do this it would of course have a right to adopt any policy in its own management that would be dole terious to itself or to anybody else just as a man would have a right to charge an inordinate rent for his house or to destroy it en tirely if he preferred Sonic such minor objection sonic of us may have tc swallow in a coalition with the Alliance men but if they accept our view of Prohibition without any com promise wo may afford to make some concession upon extraneous issues on the broad principle that we will secure the greatest good to the greatest number by securing Prohibition The question naturally arises with which side in the division will the Kentucky Alliance peo ple go Kace prejudice does not exist in while the interests of our people are equally divided between the North and the South and the prejudices of our people are for the South probublbepeople of Kentucky anda part ot them will coalesce with the Prohibitionists upon tho same terms that the Western Alliance people do In the coalition the Prohibition party will take precedence upon the ground of its superior age and of its thorough organization The rock which there is the greatest danger that we willi brtaK will bo the naming of the coalesced party The New York Voice in alluding to this says ofI changedIimportance that weeding to the tmrl e iij PIinciVle11itS name In all the utterances of the New York Voice that is the first sen timent in it to which I had to dissent Wo must hold to the name Prohibition until the thing that we want to prohibit has been most effectually prohibited and then it will sweetly fall into innocuous desuetude for want of oil to feed the flame just as the name Abo lition wont out when the thing it opposed was abolished For myself even after that II must admit a sort of sentimental preference for tho old name butI after that andnot before I am willing to hear argument on the advisability of changing the name Two hundred thousand of the finest women in1 America are pledged to the support of Prohibition and they are tho power behind thxrthronoMn cultured Prohibition cause has ready existed twice as longas any other third PllltJex cept Abolition ever did and it has done this with no more ap proach to schism or rupture than the difference of opinion about Woman Suffrage and that has simply been the occasion of put ting a pleasant seasoning of Attic salt with our discussions With the press of both the old parties it and with no political machineryof its own and without a single act inconsistent with the character of the highest stylo of Christian gentlemen it has grown from 9678 1880 toI 249945 that were counted in for ovenIlicans all over tho United States as we know it to have been here in Lexington Wo have simply to stand firm on our position und tho Northern wing of the Alliance will cone to us und tho Southern wing will go back to its allegiance to Dem ocracy The Northern wing coming to us will weaken Republicanism while the Southern wing going to Democracy will strengthen Democracy then reinforced Dent ocracy will crush decimated Re ublicauism and then crushed Republicanism will come to Pro hibition then the combine of Republicanism Western Alliance Powdorly people and Prohibi tionists with Prohibition in th oj lead will crush Democracy und then the angels will string up their harps and learn sonic now songs for tho Millennium Political Heresy Jit TlicjYcw oYork Voice In time Now York Voice of January 22 is an editorial under the heading Shall wo have a Union of Forces that has in it the first inkling of political heresy that I have ever seen in that paper thoughtinis most likely to get stranded I think tho Voice is without exception the grandest neVspii per in tho worldand I thinjk that this is the sentiment t every Prohibitionist Itsafter incca have been so universally trustworthy that too that having gotten in a habit o accepting its views withoijt crit examination we are to swallow any error that it almost certainly must make sometime just like a trout takes down a piece of red flannel because ho does not stop to examine The Northern Alliance people arc makingsumoQ temptinfbaits for us at an anxious to get in with them and so am I They have gotten just as close up to us as they can get without coming into the true faith and they have drawn a lino on the ground and said Now we like you mid we want j to help you and we want you to help us timid if you will just step across togetherThats said to Jesus in the temptation scripture alike and the Devil quoted it just as accurately as Jesus alai and then said we are so nearly together in our understanding ot these things thatin asmuch as I am on th P side and you are under a loudI and you dont seem to have

publishedtown should have had in full the Senators famous Indian whisky storyUnder the most favorable cir cumstances when the story was freshand new it was bad enough but since the poor Indians have inIcomand from the whisky that Government has allowed to bo taken among them this story seems to be peculiarly inappro priateThe story is not merely lackin in any moral peculiarity but as a joke could never elicit applause from anybody higher than saloon people and ward politicians An end man at a negro minstrels that would get oft such a gag would be hissed by the peanut galleryI laugh at Col Stoddard Johnstons Texas badger story or Proctor Knotts story of the Htog that learned to talk as Col Swope used to tell it Though neither of them were exactly the right thing for print I would rather print them than Senator Blackburns story be cause they are funny to any man who has any fun in him I do not fancy Senator Jos style but I have nothing peraona againt him and I hate to see th man continually persecuted by storyItgotten into newspaper stereotype and from present ape pearances is liable to be stuck into the newspapers of the future a long time after people have for gotten who Jo Blackburn was If the story had been told by Blackburn about somebody else it might have had an element o fun that was adapted to some low comprehensions But for a United States Senator to mak- hinselfthe hero of a story the only point of which is that he and an untutoredsavage were equally ardent in their devotion to whis as a style of wit I think i KentuckyOfnally printed to advertise the Senator among the whisky peo ple slit I ilea t think the Senator needs any advertisement in that department and I think th Democratic party could do some thing for the reputation of the State by paying the stereotypors to suppress that story It is possible though that both the Republicans and the Prohibi tionists would take up the publi cation of the Senators story if they saw the Democrats were neglecting it A Grand Success The entertainment given b the Loyal Temperance Legio- last n Friday night was a gran success They had a delightful program and it was fully carried out and every one

built theylaidwatermelon Erwin was the editor of the State Union the party organ ol this State They bounced him and he rim oil and carried tho paper with him and now the journalistic representation of the party in this State has simmered down to a corner in the Farmers Home Journal in Louisville about as big as the nigger column in John paperThe Journal used to be run here The editors name maid the name of Cassidy paper are time only two things in journalism that I cant recollect The Journal is ono of these papers that tell about eggs with two yellows in them und three legged chickens and when to sOw wheat und corn and puukins and low to lied water with a peach tree switch and whether red cubs or white ones are the best to smoke meat Ever since that Nebraskabusi nets it does me good to see time Farmers Alliance fellows conic to griefThey went in with time Prohi bitionists and elected Koiu and llflvorson both Prohibitionists to Congress and then they were full of themselves that they shook the Prohibs Thou they theJIIIein less than three months since they came out as world beaters They quarrelled about the most effective way to get more tobacco into the world while the balance of Christianized civilization is trying to get the nasty dirty stinking stuff out of the world Coming up from Louisville on the Louisville Southern the other day theywere smoking in all the cars but the ladies car I sat in the ladies car and a dirty fftllawcjune in with a whis ky bottlo sticking out of his pocket and a cigar in his mouth I got the conductor to put him out A tobacco drummer sat behind

Hank Itacket SOIteBramitick maid V B Ciano whose father was a General in the Confederate army and would therefore have a protty good right to be a Dem ocrat is one of the brightest and best posted Prohibitionists that I ever heard talk and stumped the State to offset tho ovil ctlect of that unfortunate letter against Prohibition that Bro Jolt Davis wrote to Texas and made tho ugliest blotch upon the heroic retirement of his old days Gen Gano went through this and raised money for time stockof an immense bank in DallasA was raised as to wheth er Gano or a man named Ilansl should manage the bank or some part or parts of it Ilansl 1 suppose from his nine was a lager beer Dutch manEach party tried to get to vote tho stock of sonic parties living in Winchester amounting to Dutchman beat Gano and got tlfero first and glade his state ment about tho rumpus mull tho Winchester Sun dynamited the whole Gano family higher than kitoGildoroys It looked to me that he had got the whole manly down I knew the stuck mull thought it wasnt like them to got in that fix Now Gun Gano replies to the Sun man and ho doesnt leave enough of him to grease a wheel barrow It was a regular John L Sullivan knock out Gano makes six counts and the Sun undertakes to answer then and concludes by saying Vith these two exceptions we do not see that the purport of our article is materially impaired by Gen Ganos letter In plain English thats what I mean by somewhat damaged but still in tho ring The facts are all against you my blooming Aurora and you ought to have given it up like n little man and tackled sonic easier job Thats the way I do Time contest was between Gen Gano and Ilansl and tho General closes his argument by saying Time election is over and Mr Ilansl is out of the bank and harmony prevails 3110 votes were cast against Mr Hansland only 376 cast for him Out of 120000 of the stock held hero in Dallas only 15000 voted for Ilansl and that in time hands of partiesThat it and theres no possible show for tho Sun man except to prove that Gen Ganos statement is not true Give it up for a bad job Brother Self Explanatory The suhjoincdcommunication appeared in the Transcript of

mo to corect through your columns a mistake I made in lasc Saturdays issue of my paper regarding the Green and Long mutter account that I got was ITho Middlesborough Demo crat which had been taken from the Lexington Loader I take tho Leader in the list of my ex changes but had never seen the article as originally published in the Leader and never saw or heard of tho Leaders subsequent explanation of its mistake nor did I know from any source that there was any doubt about the statement that Isaw in printI until after it appeared in my pa per I regret to be the occasion of pain to anybody even under circumstances where it is evident that I have been thus most natu rally Ill stake nxurdt Write thfe correction which will also appear in my paper in a short time after having heard for the first time that the account that I saw was inaccurate Time editor of the Leader has also kindly promised to publish it Almost daily horrible things occurring as the result of the traffic in our State They lure dreadful timings to publish I think is no justifica in publishing them except the purpose to arouse all proper thinkiug people against the enor mity It seems to me that abstract reasoning and glittering general ities are having no effect upon our people and that I am justified in showing the horror of the in dividual instances that occur in countryI tho responsibility of time legalized liquor crime lies upon the highest class of society and in many instances upon the most popular ircuuiiuru ant such is the testimony of Prohibition workers everywhere As a political bodywe have reasoned with ministers and appealed to their religion to influ ence them Our appeals are often received with great indittercnco and in some instances with bitter opposition to that when a case of this kind occurs I confess an inclina tion to show to the people that tho things against which we are warning them are of actual oc currence in real life more dread ful than we would paint thom in theoryI there are instances in which limyzeal gets the better of my judgment and this may be a case of that kind but no man has over yet aroused his fellowmen to oppose so stupendous an error as the liquor traffic and in fluence in this State bymoderate means or conservative utterances Though tho remedy may have seemed severe there was no fool big of personal unkindness lay heart and my purpose

facts Col Craddock has just told mo that there was some intimation that my article had been prompt SweeneyItiulIn answer to this I have simply to say that I never sent him a paper in my life and that he never owed me a cent for anything on earth On the other hand certainly am on record as talked very plainly agaimtstsource people who had paid among whom there was recently a minister who had not only paid me for my pa but for stock in While we are on itI = 1 would like to suggest that there are two other newspapers and an respousiblofor comes I am the only man in the whol lot who hits ever

the first of March at which time the books must be closedup From that time I will run a strictly cash business D II BEATTV Hon Eugene Viulcrwooil the Probable Caiulidatcofthe Prohibition Party for Governor Time recent Conference of the Prohibition party at Louisville contained the finest representative men from all parts of the State It was decided to have a State Convention about first of May to make nominations for Govcr nor and Lieutenant Governor For the latter place I heard no name suggested nor was there any official suggestion for Governor but an official expression seemed to point to lion Eugene Underwood of Bowling Green as the man Mr Underwoods father was a Judge of the Kentucky Court ol Appeals cud the brother of the possible nominee was once Lieutenant Governor of this State It is claimed bv lIIun of those who known all three that Eugene Underwood is the flower of the is an intensely enthusiastic party Prohibitionist and has a port that is invulnerable lie is worth seventyfive thou sand dollars and is willing to use his niency in all proper demands of a campaign that would consist with the principles of the Prohibition party He is seventy years old but his moderate and philisophic life has preserved his great physicial and itltellectvalvigor On tie Woman Suffrage ques tion he is all right in his private preferences but thinks it is policy not to emphasize that feature positionIOU that subject but claim we do Ion make it any test of party and I hope that our earnest support of Mr Underwood in the event of his nomination willshow the sincerity of our claims- I believe tluit any dispassionate judgment will rank him higher than any other nomination that the other parties have made for GovernorI the women of Equal Rights Association should under the circumstances use their influence for Mr Underwood should he be the nominee and believe they will do it III Presbyterlmism Coming Around All Right DALE KY Feb 2 91 IHOCK my knocking once more to your esteemed paper but I have been reading some of late und thinking too I was rending an article in the Western Recorder on Qualifications For the Ministry by VrGardner D D which by the way is a most excellent article and ought to be read by every minister of the Gospel When Icame across the following language Lay hands suddenly on no man neither be partaker ot other mens sins Tim 522 That is if we hastily induct unsuitable men into the ministry we thereby become partakers of all the evil that may result to the cause of Christ ant the souls of Wren and this ap plies alike to churches and Presby do not intend by any means to try and twist this to mean but what the good thatIto any thing outside of the question spoken of above But permit me to draw front it another idea That is docs not the placing of ones vote in the bal lot box for a person Known to be directly or indirectly connected with the liquor traffic make said one partaker of the evil following the legalization of said traffic Is it not so fa as the vote goes countenancing it Ought not churches und Presbyteries as citi zeus watch over themselvesat nil times that they make not them selves partakers of all the evil fol lowing the licensing of the liquor traffic 4 IOllght they not to keep them pure and in no wise Im accessary to the most gigantic o f evils Give your vote no roan known to be a friend of the liquor traffic neither speak in its favoi or you may be mado to fed like good Bro Minister of Quern County who had marla speech against National Prohibition and stepping down afterward into the congregation was met by a half drunken man who tapped him on the shoulder said That is my doctrine exactly That brother was stumped to think that the very men he was instrumental in saving were agreeing with him on the supposed fallacy of Prohi bition is totlava- ound National Prohibitionist So Brothcrn let us not lay tIlt hand of unction on the liquor traffic neither use rash judgment but let our voting be such as becnmcth Christiunsapainst not for the coun tenancing of an evil and then we may expect God to approve of it Otherwise Hn will not as he can not look upon sin with the least degree of allowanao RevM F BOYLE Death of UnlUiUIIU King Kalikaua is dead If you think time announcement is a little tardy for news you may regard it as history I am trot a kicker on a small matter of that kind SharkeyWithers the Sandwich Islands to look at our Bluegrass horses that we called him Calico tor short He was the cleverest King I niggerhutas the Lexington niggers are 1 believe he has gone to heaven that is time kitchen part of it so to speak The reason he didnt put on airs was because he wasnt a niggerI old country King once who lived where Africas sunny fountain rolls down the sandand IIthat11Hegetting their hash at the Tuil leries and that nigger wouldnt any more speak to a white man that didnt take off his hat to him than anything Old Pole was pretty stiff then himself for it was before he found out that he wits not longI enough to knock the persimmon at Sedan but that dm key got awaywith him on style- I dont recollect exactly where he came from but I think maybe it was up about Kartoum somewhere where Gordon got knockedout But he had too much style for me and I didnt like usI well as I did poor old Calico If Napoleon was not dead I would write to him and get him to send me that African Kings address if he isnt dead too timid I would send him the Blade Congo is solid for Prohibition and against Harrison and the Blade might make a nucleus for the party up the Nile- I never could get along very wellwith royalty but the Duke of Sutherland and I wore old chumswell that is not exactly the Duke himself but his head steward It was about the same or better for the Duke was not at home and the steward was a jolly fellow and was just dead gone on me und we had a whole palace to ourselves with three thousandacres in the yard and deer and lakes and boats und fruits and flowers and books and paintings null statuary until you couldnt rest I wasnt much struck on tho Prince of Wales The first time I ever met him as an American citizen I looked down on him Ho was in a 50 opera box and I was in a 50 cent one seven stories above him on the opposite sideIt was at Convent Garden und pretty little Adalina Patti was on the stage just a going itin Ita lian of course But she could not get there like our poor dead Emma Abbott used to dound is doingnow if thut is true about singingIf known then that his sister was going to marry my cousin tho Marquis of Lome I reckon he might have looked up at me and I would have shown my proud American hauteur by shooting a peanut at him But neither of us know any thing about what was coming and his habits at that time were rather too loose for my Prohi- bitIon ideas and that very night larkthoughGladstQne him and he had loft Alexandra at home nursing her first baby and making catnip teat always liked Victoria very well until her daughter married my cousin Lome and she cut up- about it and would not go to the wedding because she said Jr u Cousin Marcus didnt have roya blood in him Then ray family cut u and said the Argyles were better blood than any Dutch Guelphs over dared to be and from that day to this theres been a coolness between the two families und none of us like any of the Victoria family except Alexandra Wales wife I hate family quarrels but my folks say they mire not going to let their kin folks be snubbed by Queen Victoria nor any body goesBut Kalikaua is dead I dont know of any King that did more to advance his race He came up here to Lexington to see our people and when our people went down there like a Christian he took them to his bosom three generations ago his old cannibal grated daddy would have taken them to his stomach Iogged if I Know What to Do While the whole of Paris and the half of Lexington and a big slice of llarrodsburg are going for me without gloves about that Sweeney bad breaka gentle man from Augusta Ky who I think is a minister writes me February 2nd how he is working for the Blade and winds up 1 think the Blade is calculated to make Prohibition votes where the Voice would not be Ever yours for the reaclrbitter end II B And then a gentleman whose religion I do not know came in and talked about the Sweeney and on Bro Mat preachinbnProlmibition me 8 just to help the BladeIThen there comes the letter from Mrs Clark which I publish und then heros a letter trom a lady in South Elkhorn that gives me taffy until I blush to read it but shes for Prohibition until the last gun tires and a whole lot of other things from other people but my durned little old paper is l not big enough to hold theta and time world is losing one of the most delightful rackets you ever did go a fishing It somebody will just furnish me time money to print everything that everybody writes me from allover this State with the women that aro backing me I can make it so hot that a Salamander couldnt live in this town unless he voted for Prohibition Great Gathering of Young Men The Tenth Annual Convention- of the Young Mens Christian Association will be held in Lex ID and 22 This will without question be the largest by far of such gatherings ever held in the State and its influ ence upon the future work for young men will be great Time attendance last veur at Paris was 150 and we oxpect it will reach twice that number this year The coming Convention is looked forward to with great interest by Christian young men and Chris tian

lishmentt ofa newspaper which should be the organ of this State The effort seemed to come to a theyJt was gOng to edit it and Chairman Harris said they could not tell who was I going to edit it until the money was raised and a board appointed wbo should determine who the editor should be In the Conference no mention was made of any man that would be a proper one to edit it Privately I was talked to about my undertaking its editorship never had thought there was enough probability of my being made itc editor to give the matte- much thought until since it was suggested to me and having care fully gone over the whole grouni in my mind I have concluded tha- I would be exceedingly glad to have the position if the party it this State wants me but shall mos cheerfully decline in favor of any other man that the party rattysc lect I was asked by Chairman liar ris if I would be willing to go to Louisville to live if it were deter mined to edit the paper there an I answered that I would Different persons have occasion ally expressed their preference that I should be the editor of the State organ I have taken no pains to remember them but as far as I can recall and to the best i my knowledge they arc Chairman Hon Josiah Harris of Paducah James T Barbee of Glasgow District Chairman Winslow ot HandyHarrodsburg Georgetown Moses Fort of isville possibly and G 1 1Brooks and A P Morton of Lex These expressions hay been made when as the party wi 1readilysee there has been little no r occasion to call them forth As far as I can learn it seems to be the preference of tho leaders ot the party that we should have a daily paper and this is my own opinionAs any influence that Itun personally exert it would make n difference whether I were statione- at Lexington or Louisville expresseddecided organbutwhere and without having hear anything from W W Goddard or Judge O S Poston of Harrods burg I can safely assume that they thingI lose anysupport from tho Bluegrass Region by moving to Louisville but think that the enlarged pr portions of the State organ and the still further evidence that I was o a substantal basis would at once increase my support not only the Bluegrass

plans should materialize of course I would try to combine the patronage of the Blue grass Blade and the Southern Journal My desire would be to indulge as far as could be made consistent with the business interests of the new paper a sentiment in favor of Editor J W Sacr a pioneer in Kentucky Prohibition journalism that would purchase the whole or such part of Journal plant as would be available for the new paper Allsubscriptions andcontracts made with the Blade I would com paperAs paper I followinglie e grass Blade tho Southern Blade IetheAs to the place at which tho paper should be published as be tween Louisville and Lexington I should advise that that be decided by n stool vote of the stockholders I think that I could individually raise half the money that would be necessary to runt it and would be willing to undertake to raise it all ifmy actual traveling expenses were paid I think 1 could raise it inside of two months with a traveling expense of two or three hundred dollars Though 1 have been fairlysuc cessful in any business matters that I have undertaken I have never in advance been so sanguine of the success of any effort of my life as I now fuel that I would be were 1 entrusted with this enterprise- I believe that I could make it a and a financial success varrieties of political complexion and indtban the spirit in which essays in Prohibition mjournalismm have been received no adverse criticism ever having been suppressedand yet I would not admit byany moans that the Blade has been the measure ofm capability except as to means and its patronage has thcdr its columns been continually in creasing at n reasonably fur rate And yet the greater part 6f my time I have spent on my farm and the larger part of my time in th occupied with fbookkeeping and correspondence of the paper its advertising and mechanical getup My idea would be to have daily that we could sell f0 weekhf setIAs a paper that would be valua studentIIwe could get up anything that wouldequal the New York Voice because we probably would not have the means to send agents to get the very valuable information that it does But I could utilize the information that it

bras regardless of profession or station Truth must win Your Blade is none too sharp It must be sharp to cut the damnable liquor traffic loose from the Chris tian churches It must be pointed to reach the sleeping Disciples of ChristHaving nailed the black flag of no compromise with whisky and no compromise or fusion with whisky parties to the mast head continue to sound the alarm as loud as you can The Christian churches of this land are responsible for all the drunkenness and most of the crime for they support whisky parties and thus make it almost impossi ble to carry on a warfare against whisky by refusing to allow Pro hibition meetings to be held in the churches and failing to help make those meetings a success Icant see for my life how the Great Judge at the last daycan send the

its first issue and have in the main been pleased with your outspoken condemnation of wrong doing in public men and in public places but I have never read in your pa urnokind and uncalled for an article as that in your last issue headed Whisky Playing Hell in a Preach ers Family Wjiofffl read that article I won dervgirl evil sprit had taken possessionof you I had known you from early boyhood and had the conviction that gentleness and kindness with a strong sense of justice were predominating clements in your nature as result of inheritance from a most estimable father and mother and that you were one of the last men in the world from whom such utter ances would come Of all you have written and oth ers have written in regard to the misfortune which has occurred in the family of Rev J S

Christian gentleman es teemed and beloved by who have had the pleasure of his uaintance He is u popular man but his popularity does not depend as you very plainly intimate upon the toleration of the rich whisky men in his congregation His congrega tion is a very large one number ing a membership of probably one thousandA of this congregation and a ver large majority are in whiskybusinlsi are when measured under other than your Prohibition standard would be considered gentlemen and good citizens To show the appreciation in which he is held his people he has held the pas torate of his church without oppc sition for twenty yeas It will be a consolation for Mr Sweeney to know that he has the good will and sympathy of thousands of- friend in some measure compensate him in the time of his
