Pretty Good Dog If They Put n Hog on Me and Keep Mo hi n Tight Pen GEORGETOWN KY Feb 10g1 C 0 Moore Esq Dear SirIn your article in the last weeks issuo touching the Outlook for a State Organ you ask for free and unbiased expres sions from your readers on the subject irrespective of their po litical affiliation- I may be permitted to say that 1 am highly pleased with your suggestion of a daily paper if it can bo furnished at fifty cents a month and a weekly at one dol lar per annum As to its location Iwould deem it of less importance as the facil ities for rapid transmission are such that whether Lexington or Louisvillo were selected the readers would receive it about as soon from one city as frorrrtho other But I must say the selection of a prudent well informedreliable editor is of the greatest import ance and requires most thoughtfuland mature consider ation possible Some things which an independent editor might be excusa ble in giving utterance to would be wholly inadmissible in a par tizan organ and would under- mind and destroy the prospect of success of t110most important moral or political organization and he who aspires to becomes its editorial leader should be held to the most rigid accountability and required to confine himselt with in the tenets of the party whose principles he assumes to advocate and defend Ho should not in dulge in the support ot doubtful and dangerous outside issues in no way connected with Proluui tion or the defense of its princi pIes To bo a little more definite aa I understand from your article you desire a free and unbiased expression on the subject irre spective of party affiliation On religious views I take it that the resurrection of Jesus Christ is at this day a well settled fact and is a subject ot too grave importance to be handled in political issues however grave and you will find that many of the best Prohibitionists in this broad land like the sensible and kind writer of your city do not wish a paper in their family that indulges in light cavils on so important a question Nor do they wish under the guise of Prohibition to give currency to letters of com mendation of your book and Emma Abbott and Inger oll or any kindred gtlestiousnudinn the selection of an editor of a organ representing so important a as all merely personal consideration should be lost sight of and a man selected who would devote him self exclusively to the one important question to the exclusion of all issues In this I wish it dis tinctly understood that in the advocacy of Prohibition and kin dred questions or its defense its editor is of course left free and untrammeled in its lino of attack and defense provided he confine himself to the truth and couch his language in courteous and spectiu of the subject and the assailants thereof Now in conclusion Mr Edi tor me to say that tine foregoing remarks are intended to bo personal onlyso fur as they are applicable to tho case ands far as I am personally concerned would as soon Bto 0 C Moore installed as editor of the contem plated paper as any nun living provided ho will conform to tho principles suggested and will cease to goad tio people with matters entirely foreign to tho requisitions of morality and Prohibition As ever 3 ours for the truth MILTON STEVENSON Liquor Champions Heard From throughIa dear old fellow and lovo him yet but he does go for mo mighty rough on tho liquor question- I can say of Col iJrecklnridgo that there is and always will be a warm place in my heart for origiInal package billwas enough to make Robt J Brockinridgu turn in his grave and his son the greatest orator in America owes it to his father the kind neighbor of my boyhood to make amends for that vote by helping the Pro hibition cause Col Breckinridgo is a born gentleman Ho knows the whisky traffic is infamous and the world knows what it has done for the Breckinridge name Col Breckinridge is a knightly man and he knows that when ho voted to force liquor back upon those States from which the prayers and tears of women and children had driven it that he rode his war horse panoplied in the armor of hell over the broken and bleeding hearts of women andchildren I cannot understand why God wouldmake a man who would fight for Dixie through a princi ple of chivalry and then help a a lot of whisky guzzling people and Dutch beer jerkers that he never associated with in his life to crush women and children a thousand times worso than the Government soldiers lately butch ered and murdered tho innocent Indian women and children Mr James Elbert a liquor drummer told mo a few days sine that he heard John Ather ton tho President of tho Ameri can Liquor Association say Tine more Charlie Moore says against mo tho more whisky I sell Strange that a man of the wealth and generous views of Col Athorton has not in recog ofthiawrYicathaLlhovdono Blade or a jug of whisky on the slyWhattlie Liquor Editors Think of the Situation I take as exchanges the principal two papers published in the interest of the liquor truffle of which I know They are the Champion of Chi cago and tho South West of Cincinnati They are full of Bible quota tions and constantly call upon God to protect and defend their business They report the sermons of anyman who preaches against Prohibition- It is a remarkable fact that while Prohibition1 ia supposed not to prohibit these two pa pers are tail of abuse of Prohibitionists and of praise of Demoj racy but do not sayauything against Republicans or cense people or mere temperance lectures In fact they urge high license and praise temperance lecturers who are not Prohibi tionistsIt be a little surprising to Prohibitionists to know that these papers are continually abusing tine liquor dealers because they do not support liquor papers and telling them how tho Prohibi tionists are keeping up their pa persOne of theso papers said lately in an editorial that if tine liquor dealers did not snake some more earnest effort to oppose tho cru sade against liquor that in five years more a Prohibition amend ment would bo in tho Constitu tion of tho United States 1 give a sample of how they talk in tho last issue of tho South- West New Prohibition papers are beingstarted almost weekly in all parts of the country and they nearly all are well supported and prosperous Tine Now York Voice is ono of the boat profit bearing publications iu the United States as tho Now Era ot Spring field with a largo circulation is ono of tho very beat paying news papers in Ohio The circulation of these papers is largely main tained by liberal Prohibitionists many individuals like Kurd Schu umciior of Akron for instance subscribing fur several hundred copies the snare being sent to armors and wagoworkera in tho rural districts In this way u powerful antiliquor antiwine undboorsentimoiit is boing created to eventually force tine en actrnuut of btriiijiout and fauutical I temperance laws as stepping 8 ones to absolute Nationalro hibition This is emphatically a newspaper age and no business party creed or profession tact make prosperous progress unless it gives succor by circulating its own press The Republican pa pers are 95 per centum at least indirectly against the brewery rho Democratic press about 80 per centum indifferent and non committal there are fully 1000 radical tempnranee high license restrictive and practically Prohi bition papers of the Toledo Blade ExpressCincinnati Republicanmatters dominant in that party the religious papers are almost a unit demanding oppressive sump tuary legislation by the Republican party to which organization the pulpit is almost entirely sub servient between three and four hundred live aggressive ably edited weeklies are published as uncompromising absolute Prohi bition journals All of these pub lications are prosperous and their numbers increasing In contrast it may be men tioned that there are less than a dozen generally known weekly and no daily publications in the United States championing the rights and defending the interests ot the brewing and vending traf fic and they are struggling for on this state ofaflairs is unnecessary and the inevitable results will supply the post mor tem moral Think I Ought to bo Kept Chained LOUISVILLE Ky Feb 701- C 0 Moore Esq Dear Sir and Friend I have just read your article with refer ence to a State organ This is a question I have given some thought though I have said or done little about it because I did not believe the plans that were rboingpursued to establish one were practical I had no faith that so much money as was being asked for would be raised when it could not be known that it would bo properly handled A successful paper is a growth and not a thing to bo made by reso lutions etc I believe in starting at the bottom and buildingup instead of starting up aud coming duwn I could take 5301 and buy material enough to get out such a paper as tho Blue Grass Blade or tho Nashville Issue by having the press work done in the Western Recorder office by contract and we need have no fears of any trouble about the press work us had Bro Sawyer Now should wo decide to raise enough to buy a job outfit the material that Sawyer has would be what we would want Iaided ifff in the purchase and know liat it is Such an office propely managed here would pay al though the expense for rent etc would bo pretty heavy In regard to a daily hero I would say that I believo one would pay properly managed but Sawyers press would not do to get out a paper to compete with our other dailies It would take a fast press with stereotyp ing outfit which would cost a great deal I think wo should bo content with a weekly until sonic time before the Presidential campaign at least A daily takes a great deal of money and would have to bo skillfully managed to payNow to your being made editor I will say that 1 think you have in you the timber to mako a perfect success if you wouldonly agree to run an organ under the supervision of the State Committee which would see that you leavo out such arti cles as do not pertain to the is sues You know all well regu lated papers have a managing editor A great deal of tho mat- tel that is set for tho Courier Journal is killed Two or three heads is bettor than ono I think tho Blade is doing a good work in its way but would not favor making it a State organ as it is now run for the reason that you publish articles and bold views that the Committee could not endorse I think you uso bad judgment in publishing such articles as Whisky Playing Hell in a Lreachors Family and tho Doctors view of tho crucifixion etc because they must offend tho views ot many good people and CUll do no good that I can see However Ifor ono would bo glad to have you hero in Louis land think arrangement could be made to get out stirring paper I believe you ar- the man for tho lace and woul readily consent to have the re strictions placed upon you tha tho committee might deem wise gointonot know that Ican do so now on account of other investment I have made but could give you much material ajd that I would charge for I under stand the business from A to Z but profer tf work for wages on my own hook until Ican strengthen my financial fences negbctedbut have some sreetime that I can give gratis I have other views on the subject that Is think worth but can not give them iHoping havo not tired you with these ideas on the and that time right and best thingwillYQt be I main yours fraternally Moss Four From a Good Old

writ ten to me to know if I get the paper I get the paper regularly and when I tell you I like it it very feebly expresses my mean ing If you were a poor man and a preacher in Virginia you would be the bluest man in Virginia if you dared to utter your senti ments as write them I think you would be ostracised bv the goodygood weakkneed sycophantic halfwaytellingthe truth To belong to an

stock company but this is not a thing about which I can speak with assurance expressionWhen halfway tolls it for fear of oil nd ing some persons feelings I re personinnsman than he has for that God whom he professes to love and obey It reminds mo very much of poor old Abraham Gen 20 where ho says of Sarah his wife She is mysister and Stimuli said is my Abra hams excuse was I thought surely the fear of God is not in this place and they will slay mo for my wifes sake I think Abraham feared man more than he feared his Godand while it made Abimelech think less of him it doesnt seem that it raised him in the estimation of God So in Acts 5 they Ananias and Sapphira thought they had a good thing and lied for a little theyhadand knew their hearts But their respect for themselves was morn than their respect for their God and God slew them Is it not the same God now who reigns as then All th sympathies of all the people in th world will not make n right I would rather bo approved by my God by doing than to havo tho praiso of world by doing wrong But it proprietya expressdPreachers too are guilty of this very thing T J Shelton says that the greatest enemy to the cause of Christ today is the church of Christ I believe it There Is more policy propriety the love of money lust of tho flesh lust of the eye and the pride of life in the socalled church of Christ today than ever Now sir if I were a policy man I wouldnot write this No Mr Moore I am just fool enough to tell tho truth in the pulpit about members of the church as Iam to toll sinners out of tho church of their sins For this I am unpopular with same of the brethren Well so bo it I can say nothing against the truth but for the truth Truth is what I want and truth will tell in the end But I am getting too prosy for you who seem to delight in time swift descent of a keen Blade to hew to the line I liko it I en joy it Iread tine papers for others to hear then I send it to othersI to tell you that Iam not able to pay

A few hours before I write this I have had a long and delightful talk with Bro Felix of t1 Baptist church in this city religionHe a Prohibitionist and stockholder in the Blade What he saidsuited mo to a dotHe believes that religion is no worth shucks unless it leads men to do some good for their fellow men I dont know whether ho believes that Jonahsswallowed the ark or not and I dont care I must however say to Bro Cozine that the Christians have not been specially hard on me I had a position in a bank once and put me out because I was an infidel They put a man in my place who afterward com mitted a forgery was put in the penitentiaryand was killed by a guard while trying to escape over I was in that bank I was the Sunday school teacher of a boy who is now Rev Robert B Neal editor of a Prohibition pa per in this State and who frequently gives a goodsend off in his paper and said not long ago that the Christian brethren ought a good financial backingand that when they read my paper they ought to do they do when they oat fish ay the bones aside bv t Then a bank employed me the manager of which was an infidel He fired me out after a while be cause I talked against race horses When I was in the bank it had the biggest individual deposit in the city After they tired me the bank busted all to smash I have been a kind of a double backaction Muscott to banks and yet if I over stole any money out of one nobody has ever teens it out that I know of anylI do not know I never heard of it I have lately heard of four instances in which ministers have indorsed me in their pulpits Some newspapers have alluded kindly to my religious notions I never heard of but one that- tried to injure mo on account of my religious notions That is the Daily Press of this city Its edi tor is a councilman of this city has voted for saloons enough to damn the whole United States He has occasionally alluded to me as a defamer a liar a crazy man an infidel and some tender epithets of that kind but some how or other it doesnt seem ton have taken anything oil the bay window of my Queen Anne front elevation I think it may be healthful fort ministers to read this totter Its good to have somebody to help usIto see oursel as ithera see us They are the sick that nee the physician and it seems Bro Mathews hasnt been giving Bro Cozino the right kind of medicine I went to church once down

Which Rev J W McGarvey of the Clirlsthm Church of Lexington Will Soon Contribute a Thcolog teal Paper Several persons have lately asked me why I did not read the IfAre na telling me that it maintained my theologicalviews Last week some friend sent me anonymously leaf cut from tins magazine asking me to put it in tho Blade and adding thats the way you talk You saw the of it grcatellmltthat I published issue and just as Iwas closng up my paper for the press Mr B FWiI lams a member of the Christian church in this city andwhose frlhcr vcs a prominent member in that clircli called at my office and gave me the first copy of the magazine that I have ever seen It is the February numbe- never saw such a book before If I had had the ordering of the number there is not a sentence in it that I would have omitted- I have read Tolstoi and Robert Elsmcre and Light of Asia and have Darkest Englandand I have told that something like a millennium was naming nnd that I was daily looking for the modern John the Baptist the Elias that is to come as the harbinger of regimeIn of this magazine I find the very ideal of the man I am looking for His name is B O Flower and the temptation to say he is a daisy is simply irre sistable It is the only book I ever read in which the most highly culti vated men and women dispassion honestlydiscussed day and in the interest of good morals called things by names that enable us to understand what they mean without any fear of public censure and without once shrink ing from the fear of the charge of indelicacy when they come to talk about the evils of society over which a false modesty has thought proper to throw a veil when the fact is that they arc the that the good of society demands shall be unveiled and laid open to the noonday glare of the sun or the most intense electric light at midnight religionIts editor is the only editor except him of the Blade after whom I have ever read who editorially writes ll instead of the ordinary editorial We The magazine is published monthly in Boston It is the kind of book that Kentucky wants Judge Stevenson whoso letter to me appears in this issue is a good Christian Prohibitionist and citizen but he is mistaken in the policy to advance the Prohibition party If any proposition is true elfflilstitappear Judge Stevenson says Imust not talk about Col Ingersoll and DunningOlark she has read my book twice and wants me to write another one and Iam willing that anybody shall lay her letter in the Blade udgcStevenson shows the more love for Prohibi tion and for moral purity and whichshows tho more genius and experienceJudge that a Prohibition paper ought to talkabout Emma Abbott and cant see any connection between her and Prohibition You never saw a theater advertisement in the Blade and aro not likely to see one I want to feel free to discuss tho drama to commend that of it which I think is moralizing and goodand to recommendearnest Christians to go and see and hear it while I also want to be free to OperaCompany beIput on the streets here prosecuted for displaying such pictures I am not certain about tillS and I have read with great interest in the Arena an article on that subject an ex tract from which I will give and which alone will make a buzz in our society But there is one thing I do know and that is if Judge Stevenson never saw Emma Abbott on the stage or off of it he would not be so competent a critic of her career to which the attention of the whole civilizedworld has been called by her sudden death as Mrs Clark would be who personally knew her in the poverty of her girl hood and then heard her in Faust when the musicalworld was at her feet Some time since I loaned to a devotedchurchman my copies of the North American Review that had in them the discussion between Gladstone and Ijigersoll Some time after I asked him if he had read them He said ho hadread all of Gladstones articles but would not read Ingersolls Somme time after that an elder of another church who is a Prohibi tionist told me that he hadseen that man on one occasion pickup all the Prohibition ballots that wero lyingon the table at the polls and tear them up and throw them the supposition being that it was intended to show his contempt for the Prohibition party that was so sparselyrepresented That Christian Prohibitionist read my book and tried to get an other officer in his church to do so The other man declined to do it withan emphasis It is commonly known that whisky was freely used by his connivance among the negroes to elect him to the office which he now holds So that it will not do to con clude that only those are good Christians and Prohibitionists who are willing to hear only one side of a religious discussion The first article in the Arena is by Alfred Russell Wallace D C L LLJD He is a member of the Society for Psychical Research The writer believes in telepathy or thought transference clairvoy ance hypnotism planchctte and all of the alleged phenomena that como Wrornon head of spiritualism His effort to prove are what thei advocates believe of them is a stronga demonstration that they are untrue as if he had written against them He only gives in stances of persons who say they have seen and heard these spiritual manifestations and gives samples of the things that spirits had told those who communicated with themNone of the information received is of any importance or value and is only such as people ordinarily know without any supernatural guidanceA valuable citizen in Lex ington recently said to me You cannot convince me that there is such thing as a materialized spirit when 1 know I have taken one by the hand In the same waya man whom I recently saw on the grand jury once told me tbat he knew water could be found bya waterwitch with a peach tree switch because he had seen it done and I know one of the wealthiest men in the county who has been a leader in politics that claims to be a water witchAnother article is by Hon John Welch late Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Ohio It is against the authenticity and genuineness of the cosmogory of Genesis and argues that the story of the creation as found in the Bible is utterly without foundation and that the first eleven chapters of Genesis were gotten by the Jews from the Babylonians in the first Babylonishcaptivity Persons who wunt to be informed on this subject should read this article in anticipation of the article of Rev J W McGarvey of this city soon to appear in the Arena in defense of the inspiration of the Bible An editorial bays as followsrA taper prepared by Prof J W McGarvey of the Kentucky Uni versity treating on tho inspiration of the Bible from a strictly ortho dx point of view will shortly ap ear in The Arena Professor McGarvey is tho author of one of the ablest works on Palestine that has ever been written It is published by Lippincott of Philadelphia For many years he has a foremost position as a Biblical scholar in the Disci plea or Christian church It is our principle to give all sides a fair hearing when the thoughts are properly presented by representa perhapshave spoken of as occupying the fore most position of his church He has had the opportunies to travel in Palestine and for years has been a prosessor of theology in the Uni versity here He is the author of a book The Canon and the Text which bears directly upon the point of Biblical the book nor any utter ance that I have heardor heard of as coming from Prof McUar vey betrays any departure from the most rigidly orthodox theories of inspirationshall await his article with great interest If Prof McGarveys article is preIHon Welch has taken regarding the first eleven chapters of Genesis If it should result in a corre spondence upon that subject simi lar to that between Gladstone and Ingersollor that between Inger soll and Rev Field both of which were conducted in the North American Review I think it would im mensely attract attention to The Arena in Kentucky and Ohio and also in Missouri where Prof Mc Garvey is widely and favorably article upon Womans Dress by Frances E Russell has so im pressedme that I make the question the subject of special consider paperUnder and Fig Leaves Mrs Helen London writes an article about dancing theater going decollete in dress the nude in art tho ballet and all thoughts germain thereto Her position is that youngmen and young women ought to be told plainly about many matters which are ordinarily thought improper for domestic journalism- A sample of her round unvar nished way of talking is as fol lows Right here lies a most certain truth that we ourselves educate our children in evil It is plain that if we taught them that a womans bosom is a part of her bodyentitled to the highest honor anti respect without evil in itself andwithout reason for evil no one would find shame in it Ifwe taught that a womans leg is as honorable a portion of her as a mans is of him and withno more evil in it none would be found We teach that they arc full of evil and should bo hidden from viewis it any wonder then that men should want to see them Is it strange that our young men spectaculardrama lustful pleasure in beholding the most beautiful outlines earth can showthe outlines ofa womans form It is evident from this that Mrs subjectisof Elizabeth Stewart Phelps which I sometime ago recommended to young ladies to read PhelpsColwhich he opposed her and took the same ground that Mrs London docs here I must acknowledge that as to tho merits of the discussion the opposing views of which are so antipodal I am as yet at sea and developmentA intelligencebegets vice and I can not see why this rule will not as well to time subject under discussion as to to a Prohibitionist the crowning article of them all is the editors personal tribute to Prohi bition The greater part of his editorial mylastHis utterances have a force that comingfromcommitted himself to opposing the liquor traffic He knows of no remedy for the curse except to crush it and kill it just as wo do snakes Ho speaks of it useta traffic which has proven itself the most unmitigated curse that ever has visited the earth He says tho rnmaoller is a greater curse to the community than a professional thief that a saloon is a more positive evil than a shanty filled with smallpox pa tients While this editor publishes an article that is fearfully damaging to the stories about Eden and Noahs Ark he speaks in all love and kindness Christians min isters who have the courage to denounce from their pulpits the liquor traffic and scathes as hireling regenades from the teachings of time apostles that greater part of the Christian clergy who with an eye to their salaries are too prti dent to jostle those from whom their salaries come by denouncing tho liquor infamy Nothing has over occurred in American history has so emphasized aud intensified the moral code of the Christian religion as has Prohibition and tho moralists of every political aud religious r L shade are coming to its support and Catholic and Protestant for the first time in American history walk together as confiding brethren in Christ when they go to the polls to vote against this common enemy of the whole human race This sentiment that began when Mother Stewart and her band of women kneeled u the streets of an Ohio town before the doors of saloons and prayed has spread from ocean to ocean of the United States has gouo Canada has in vaded England with an army un der Gen Booth and like a new gospel has swept to where Africs sunny fountain rolls down the golden sand and Congo is re sisting the rum of Christian America Time Blades Business Outlook In Pretty Encouraging A great many friends ask me about the business outlook of the Blade and I have generally said thaUJ thought is was pretty fair but I really have not definitely known until I have just struck a balance of its business up to date If no man pays me a cent from now until the 20th of next March at which time the first six months of its business will expire Iwill be abundantly able to pay a semi annual dividend bf five per cent as the balance shows and will so pay to each stockholder who will let me know that ho wants it and this same notice will be officially given in the Blade at its issue next before March 20th When I started to raise the stock Isaid I ought to have 2500 but that I believed I could get along with 1500- I got subscribed in stock 1540 Of this stock 1220 has been paid 170 I regard as easily col lectible 60 are

one of the stock subscriber that I thought doubtful hasjpaidme for his subscription for his- paper expressed high appreciation of the paper and wished the Blade and me long life and success and

preachers who are r 7x conductiug this great in Cincinnati probably less than 50 will vote for the next Presiden tial candidate of the Prohibition party toA significant and discouraging statement the Cincinnati revival is that its influence is es pecial against the Sunday sa loon Whisky drunk on Monday makes a man just as drunk and as dangerous a citizen as if he t it on About the out difference that any Sunday clos ing of saloons can amount to the dillereuce between buyiu one gallon late Saturday night and buying eight pints on Sun day This emphasizing the closing on Sunday looks like the preachers only want to keep up the IIshow of and force the people topatroutzetlieir churches because they cant go anywhere else and thus increase their pa tronage andrevenues It is temporising and compromising andas a means of puttln down the saloon probably does more harm than good sa loon keepers of Lexington were interviewed not long since by a Leader reporter and the very biggest and the most damaging ones among them said that they prelerred to close u on Sunday but did not do it because others kept open A religious revival in Cincinnati that is tr ing to do with the saloons the very things that the worst saloons in Lexington want done can not propose u very radicalreform in It may be a very good pretext to get into the church people who are willing to pray against sin and vote for it but there is nothing in the Cincinnati revival to make Prohibitionists and moralists ape dally jubilant until we hear of those preachers mixing up with the words of New Testament the to vote

lines of discouragement in fact as I never did before itrthe city called to pay you e number of Blades he had received und gave you instructions to discontinue his paper And no wonder fOiyon look at this matter just as myselfand many others do that the only paper in the city that opposes the saloon ought by vir tue of the of right and decency be supported by that ifor sympathy from the liquor of Lexington and if we fail to receiver from the Christian people pray tell me where will go to get it1 So far as yourjbeing able to edit a paper that will please the masses is concerned with your ex perience as a newspaper man you knowAt this point the numbering o showedoaccidentely omittedEDTo would but be but to fail The Cincinnati Commer cial Gazette is not the kindof a text book that the Democrats pre LouisvillenCourier Journal the guiding star for the Republicans But it does seem strange that some temperance Democrats and Republicans would prefer a whisky paper in prefer ence to a paper published in the interest of temperance in which they are seemingly interested I you will not entertain any BladeYyou are mensely more good for humanity thangsynagogues on Sunday and vote for such mqn as make up the gov ernment of Lexington on Monday You have friends not only Lexington but in every quarter o the State will back you and with cleSrcu tracts such as you are able to present

street Christian church ispa in and llev Felix of the Short street Baptist church who is also a stockholder in the Blade are the only two ministers inthisoity who have done their whole Christian duty to Prohibition I asked the coaloffire Brother when I was getting up the stock for the Blade to subscribe to it and he refused to do so and not beinga stockholder in tho paper he had no right fo censure me as he did for the conduct of the paper He did not say to what he ob jected but simply wanted to show me in general terms that his Christian conscience was offended and urged me to be careful not to send 1 i another of my papers to his houses Bro Brooks saw This coalof fire Brother has been recently n member of the council if he is not now I have seen and heard him in the city council when I was a reI porter for a Democratic ncwspa per vote for month after month- to give saloon licenses in this city to men of the very lowest moral character and I never yet havc heard him say in the councilor on the street one word against the whis1 traffic in this city Not10nJ since this cot Brother me a story about my my grandfather Stone and old Father Raccoon John Siiiith that

took time ab uone holding while the other skinned me When the cu i brother Iva through Brooks said to me am ready to tale another share o stock in the Blade just as soon n you need it and then we left the qttice and startedout and took a walk together and he said things to me that at this very minute gives mcro courage to figh- this Christian whisky hypocric than I have ever felt before though at the time as Brooks said he saw in me the quicksilver in mercurial nature showed forty degrees Cicerot not right in me just as Mrs Clark says to be bull dozed by a man lacking in intelli gence and mora1 courage but sometimes like old Peter on the vatcr I eau see the bottom helot me so clear that I falter and go down just like poor McGinty Now suppose some day I should happen to get the light turned on these Noahs ark things like other people und should want to go back to the old faith again do you think I would want to go iii Main street and with thatc bl Wit NfrnmrtltmrlmiiIw- ould I would join the Methodists four times before I would do it I would rather go up and join Dr Keller church where they are religiouslyso fur in the dark that they have to burn candles in the day time than to have a man give me the right hand of fellowship who has given the right hand ot saloonfceeper It 1 have frequently asked the cof brother to try to do something against the liquor curse in this town even when I was as muchof a Lexington Democrat as any well raised man could be and vow when he saw a whole lot of people jumping on me like town dogs oil a country dog that has come to town he thinks its a good chance for him to show his eminent piety by piling on too God knows if there is any God that Dr Keller had just burnt i into me and that I had as I said taken my medicine like a little man and a spul as higas a mus tard seed that never heard of Christ ought to have had some sympathy for me Physically he is a great big handsome fellow hut morally sympathy with time liquor
