over woman suffrage but each side will try to show itself right on the suffrage question by trying to beat the other side in devotion to Prohibition A third great stimulus to Pro hibitionists is the interest manifested by different cities to ha the Prohibition party to hold coming Presidential convention with them The cities that wanted our convention were St Louis Lincoln Harriman Cleveland Indianapolis Cincinnati Atlanta Chicago New York and Baltimore The people who represented these various cities were not by S any means simply the Prohibitionists or temperance workers of those cities but their Boards of of Trade Chambers of Commer and Mayors Harriman a town built by Prohibitionists and run by Prohibi tionists with not a saloon in it claimed the convention on that ground and said it would put a building to hold 5000 peop for the benefit of the cc vention but Harriman was con pletely snowedunder Atlantas repersqntative inafine but funny speech offered t e excellence of its beer as an inducement for the convention St Louis got it and will furnish a hall that will hold 7000 pe ple and give 5000 pay the incidental expenses oft convention such as an increase the telegraph service for t n reportersThere be less than 10000 Prohibition visitors there from allover the United states I intend to be there and to take my wife and thousands of us will go not only to witness the

Ky How Whisky put a Kentucky Governors son in the Poor- House The last part of this story I have never heard until about hour before I sit down to write i I was 54 years old the other daywhen I was 4 years old my sister the eldest child ofmy pa rents married the son of a Gov ernor of Kentucky Soon after they were married they went on a visit to the Island of Cul hichinthoseday wasn lo way off While there my sist wrote 190 the first letter I ever got and I suppose my mother read it to me at the time and ex it as far as I was able to comprehend it She read it to me after I got to be older and I remember that she cried when she read it for my sister died there only a few months after shed was married Her body waa embalmedand put into a leaden coffin inside of another one and perhaps tho most remote memory of my life is the great number of men took to carry her coffin to our family burying ground at o country home where pine trees have grown to be very tall that I saw plantednear the stone on which was inscribed a beautiful epith which tells of the romantic but sad circumstances of her death That letter to me is written on the peculiar lace edged paper that was used to write valentines on fifty years ago Itwas written on Christmas day I am writing on Christmas week a half century after The letter said she was sitting in a hotel with the window open and without any fire andi told me about whot they call they eatinsIiThey were then almost unknown in Kentucky and were what we call pine apples now OrThat letter was kept by aIlYIn mother in a trunk that s covered all over with raw hi d that had the hair ou it There were in that trunk elegant bridal dresses of my dead sister and some handsome clothes ofmy onldir brothers who died when they were little fellow and they were all burned up when our large old country home was destroyed fire during the war My sisters husband was a layer and has for years been a prominent judge in California have not seen him for

her There were some witn me who had known er before she was married She was still beautiful and sweat but there was just a little touch ofsndI ness in her appearance We asked her to sing She sat down o a piano and sang I can not sing the oldsongs I sang long years ago For heart and voice would fail me nowSAnd foolish tears would flow We knew shp meant just what the words saidcJust befQre I began

EffectlT Temperance Address by New York Newsboy I made a great mistake the first day I met Sam the newsboy Ho is a sawedoff chunky chap twelve years old but doesnt look over nine He is a very dignified and solemnlooking boy and I never yet saw anything approaching a smile on his face The mistake made was in winking at Sam and playfully poking him in the ribs as any man has a right to do by any boy lie stepped back a pace looked me up and down in tho most coldblooded manner and quietly served Sir If you have any business with me pleose tate your easel I went among the boys and asked about Sam and I learned that he treated everybody that way lie had no chums spent no money and no one knew anything about him excapt that he had to be carefully handled Then I went back and made up with him that is I excused my hilarious conduct stood treat to a milkshake and so thawed him out that we now and then had a talk abut the weather the crops and the outlook of matters in general I just happened to blunder on to his living place in Baxter street the other yIipg IA I wa ProwH wound I aI saw mm aown IDa casement when I had called to him he invited me a tworoom habitation and a most wretched woebegone home Sams father was lying drunk on the floor and his mother reclined on an old mattress In a corner and muttered and mumbled and tried to sing now and thenHome Sweet Homel quietly observed Sam Take off your overcoat and have a chair Glad to see you down this this is whore you live Yes Elegant start on the road to success isnt it Lots of things to en courage a boy to make a man of himself Is that your father and mother Of course- Shaml Sham Whoze that Sham called the mother Now you hush he replied as he pointed at her I want you to keep quiet and go to sleep All rize Sham all rizel she replied as she fell back on the bed Drunk of course said the boy as I looked from father to mother Its this way about four nights in the week I was figuring just before you came in and heres how came out Father has been a drinking man for thirty years lie has paid out an average of cents per day during that time Thats 3650 per year or about SI without interest Mother has been drinking for about ten years Well call that Heres about 1600 gone from our income Am I rightYes Owing to drink father has lost at least one day out of a week Ive known him to lose a job and not work for three moflths Well call it only fifty days in a year Thats 1500 days in thirty years and being a mechanic he has never had less than SJ per day Theres 3000 more lost from our in come Am I correct You are The father now turned over groantd stretched and rose up on his elbow and thickly inquired Sham whaz time is it Never you mind answered the boy You have gone to bed for the nigh and I want you to stay right there The man muttered and complained but fell back and was soon snoring again and Sam continued- A man who gets drunk gcnerallj gets into trouble with the law Fathef has been arrested at least a hundref times in the thirty years He has beef fined at least 300 and mother nt Iea4 8100 While drunk father broke his left once and his arm once and mothel once broke her arm Mother also broke a lamp and we lost 8400 worth oi furniture Loss of furniture dootol bills etc about 9600 Is that tot highI dont think so Well then lets add up Here we have a total of about 89500 in cash to say nothing of interest lost from one mechanics Income up to the present date Its just as much lost as if flung into the fire and burned to ashes It hasnt done us one iota of good On the contrary it has disgraced degraded and brutalized us I see Sham Sham I want to siring called tho mother at this juncture- I want you to keep quiet he sternly Sham all rize Now lets see what we could do if we had this money which has done na good continued the boy Five thou sand dollars would buy us a snug farm It would take us out west bfcy a house and lot and establish father m a shop of his own it would educate ldwyer or doctor twice over Jtwould keep father and mother the last ten years of their lives without work of worry See Isnt it appalling when yon come to figure it out in black and whiteIt certainly is A Sunday or two ago said Sam after an interval of silence you pressed wonder In your sketch that rich people did not do more to help the poor It would have been wiser in you to wonder why poor folks didnt do more to help themselves By abstaining from drink Exactly I know there are plenty of cases where industrious sober men are brought down to hard times but eight times out of ten drink Is the cause of it We cant say to a labor lag man that he cant have a gloss of beer when he wants it but what does his want of it result in Have you a remedy No there Is none Every man runs his own affairs according to his own ideas If he prefers to get drunk you must not meddle He knows what the result will be therefore let him aloneSham Sham called the father What about my own case queried Sam as if suspecting that I might put the question It would be labor thrown awaito try to do anything The end in a year or two more The city will bury them and Ill only have myself to look after Thats a tough thing to look forward Well what can you do There is only one end to a drunkards life He himself knows that Sham Sham I wanter shing a shong called the mother Whoozer calllu Sham asked the falher

SALOON IN POLITICS Upheld by the Clam Known as Respects be Citizen We often hear remarks about the vote of the liquor element or the sa loon vote as it is familiarly called In many cases it seems to be no inconsiderable fraction of the entire voting population 0 what class or classes of over 6200 for The gratuitous Iroulation of that paper in this county through the political campaign and similar contributions were made throughout the country Tho effort failed in New York and the effect of the free circulation here was but transient Why was this failure It was simply because the main support of every daily press is in its advertising patronage All mercantile trades and commerce are in their nature cowardly and dependent on supplicating popular fror The liquor power absolutely rules the masses in the great cities Hence merchants there will not adver tile in purely prohibition papers When national party finds after twenty three years of most earnest organized effort and vast personal sacrifices by Its adherents that it can not support one daily paper in any of the great cities or political centers of the nation it is time to mark new lines of action and to call in new forces The manufacturing and commercial interests of New York city depend mainly on the direct and indi rect patronage of the farmers and planters of the country Combine these st materiel interests with those of fer6lbUlon in its columns backed by political uulc cf their supporters and the New York Daily Voice wiii cc1 be an established fact and a migniy faotor in state and national elections- It is this union of prohibition elements that the liquor politicians mqst fear and have been most active to vent The state of Ohio is a radical prohibition state Thrice in the last fortyone years when the Issue of pro hibition or license of the liquor traffic was submitted to tho direct vote of our people they declared for prohi bition Fortunately at this time most of tho heads of the farmer and labor organ izations are pronounced prohibitionists and in favor of all the reforms now manded by the people with united voice but with divided vote The farmers and workingmen should carry into their public assemblies their organic pledges of hostility to the minions of the rum oligarchy When the redcoat delegates rom Boston approached the farmers convention on Bunker Hill they were welcomed only with bloody hand to hospitable graves for the farmers well knew them as deadly enemies So tho farm ore of this day should recognize as their mortal foes the redhanded city dele gate who comes to represent the blood traffic and claim scats in their open convention The signs ot the times indicate that tho people are eager to unite for radical reforms of the government Away then with the blunders of the past and let them serve only as warning teachers for the future Brothers of the farm the workshop the currency the civil service and the prohibition reforms let us cease the mad policy of mutual suicide and of fighting our best friends in aid of our worst foes The presidential year of Is approaching with a great op acceptItand scattered conflicting forces from all political battlefields and

Anything to Character Dr T L Wright in considering the influence of alcohol ou the moral con stitution of man remarks The influence of alcohol on morals is immediate It is perceptible to observation quickly after alcohol is taken into the system but it varies greatly both in kind und intensity with the stage of drinking In general terms it may bo said that no instance has been recorded where the influence of alcohol upon a good man when carried to its full tent has failed to taint his moral ture Nor has any instance ever been known of a character so base so bestial and inhuman that alcohol could not sink it still lower It seems in fact true as far as the worlds ex perience extends that the depth of depravity into which alcohol may plunge the human soul has never yet been sounded In its position as a wrecker of good morals alcohol stands proud ly eminent Few things are so bad as to have no good in them hut aside from certain properties available in therapeutics alcohol seems in its pressions on the human organism to be singularly bad In all its long and dreary history it has never been known to add anything whatever to a mans real character for piety or sympathy or love to his family or kindness to his fellowman Alcohol deadens the conscience of anyone who partakes of It let his mo tives in drinking be what they may The casual drinker often partakes of alcohol without any clearly defined purpose certainly without tho slightest intent of committing au unlawful act Yet the poison affects him as it does others it paralyzes his conscience the acuteness of his sensibilities is blunted and he is peculiarly liable to be led into improper and unlawful conduct The drinker is deprived of Intellectual soundness as well as or moral capacity and yet the law says Drunkenness Is noexcuse for crime Shakespeare knew the deadly spell that alcohol casts on morality It I can fasten but one cup upon him With that which he has drunk tonight ready Hell as full of quarrel and my young mistress saith honest lago It appears to be a potential quality of drunkenness to depress the moral capacities and thus foster the assaults of temptation whether it comes in the guise of folly or of criminality The maybeenness as well as in the surprising turpitude of its conspicuous outrages The crimes of drunkenness are not monly the outcome of premeditation and brooding malevolence The nat ural defense against their exhibition andactivity the nervous basis of the moral constitution is disabled While this nerve defect in drunkenness may to some extent be inconsistent with premeditation and malice in the mission of crime yet the very defect is the more dangerous to society from the fact that it is withdrawn from the su pervision of the rational mind A person intoxicated will commit offenses in thought in speech and in conduct which in his sober moods ho wofiliir view with abhorrence The ten dency of drunkenness is inevitably towards crimeDemorests Magazine EFFECTS OF ALCOHOL

World We arc confident that an immense gain would be made to the temperance cause in the near future if the subject of total abstinence were pushed to the front once more and presented in its most effective light The cause will male true and real progress Justin proportion as the number of total abstain ers arc increased No degree of per manent success can be expected from any temperance movement that does not move on u total abstinence basis It will not do now if at any time to countenance any form or phase of the traffic in intoxicating drink The erance front the liquor traffic must be distinct and complete There must be no recognition of it anywhere not even at the communion table In no other way can this warfare against the drink curse be prosecuted withvigor md success While this implies the abandonment of some habit anti toms which may appear harmless in themselves to some Christian men should bo borne in mind that the present is a critical time in the strug gle with the liquor power and Christian men cannot afford to occupy a position where their influence and example tend in any slight de grccto weaken and embarrasi the temperance forces It will hardlj be maintained by any reasonable per son that any positive and tangible ben efits other Ulan financial accrue to in dividuals or to communities from the presence of the liquor traffic consid eyed m its best itdoes nothing more than minister to the appetites and sensual pleasures of men No reason able person will ail to acknowledge that a vast and unmcasurable amount of positive and tangible evil does come directly from the iquor traffic For t person to deny ths would be to deny the evidence of his own senses This being the case why should not nfl men who have anyinterest in the well being of their

crime More especially should thej consider the need and importance cl selfdenial in a day hide this when ample and influence counts for so much in the desperate and critical struggle with the liquor power The great multitude of professing Christian men who indulge in drink in a mod orate degree are the hope and the strength of the liquor traffic today Their influence and example taken to gcther

nfSUoos the Abolition of Government by Ituin nrs State prohibition is local option on a large scale It is an effort to cure the nation in spots and can never be a complete success But the experiment in Kansas has had such a measure of success as to utterly destroy the arguments that prohibition is a failure It furnishes conclusive proof that prohibi tion when it becomes national will as effectually do away with the saloon as abolition did away with slavery And the strongest part of this proof is the fact that prohibition in Kansas has stroyed the political power of the sa loon which is its main reliance A lawyer who has practiced law for sometime in the courts of Kansas and has made a study of prohibition in that state closes a strong argument in support of its advantages with the follow ingLast greatest and most undeniable prohibition has exterminated in that state government by rumsellcrs The saloon as a political power is not There is no recruiting place for the vendable slum vote The growing threatening power of the saloon is a phrase unintelligible to the fledgling in Kansas politics The tentacles of the dramshop octopus have there no clutch on municipal affairs The resident of any eastern city of thirty thousand 01 unwards knows what this means THE SWISS RUM TRAFFIC Efforts of the QoTernm nt to Mitigate tkl Drink KrU It is always interesting to note the progress of experiments in mitigation of the drink eviL The lamentable re suits following the unrestricted traffic acknowledgedbyin the civilized world which has not attempted by somo means to remedy IntemperanceIntnde of a national evil and the govern ment had created a monopoly of the liquor business with a view to its miti results of this action are now foi the first time given publicity in an official report to the British government by her majestys consul at Switzerland Three things were aimed at by the Swiss federal legislation The first to provide additional revenue for the Swiss government see ond to diminish the consumption o alcoholic liquors and third to insun that whatever liquors were sold within the country should be absolutely free from any adulteration All three of these objects have been uBtheThe success of the alcohol monopoly may now be said to be fairly estab lished It has done its best to Insure the purity of the spirit consumed throughout the country it has diminished the consumption in a remarkable degree and it distributes yearly among the cantons a sum which is ready very considerable and which will is a temperance feature in the Swiss law which must not be over looked It provides that onetenth oi the money which accrues to the cantons must bo expended in combating drunkennessleaving lative bodies as tothe manner in which this may best be done While one oi the objects of the legislation was tc produce additional revenue the most satisfactory result to the friends pi temperance has been the decrease in trio consumption of liquors In he year the average consumption oi spirits in Switzerland per capita of population was 1026 liters while in 1890 under a little over two years of the new law it had been reduced to 621 liters The liter is about Itf quarts of our measure gratifyingcause The creation of a government monopoly has put a stop entirely to the contraband trade iu intoxicants which was carried on before to a very great extent and the rigid governmental in spection has insured the purity of all liquors sold These results are ocr tainly important especially when we remember the condition of Switzerland a few years ago when the increase oi drunkenness was so alarming as to spur the government in the face oi strong opposition to take hold of the problem Toledo Blade FROM VARIOUS SOURCES TIlE deeds of property in Odessa Tex provided against the sale of liquor but in one deed the clause wai omitted and the purchaser of the lot is selling liquor IT is estimated that the intoxicating liquor used annually in the United States would fill a channel four feet deep fourteen feet wide and one hundred and twenty miles long Au but nine states out of the forty four in the United States now make scientific temperance education compul sory in their common schools There are between twelve and thirteen million children in America of whom the law says that they shall be taught the truth against strong drink and kindred narcotics In the majority of these states no teacher who has not passed a satisfactory examination in the subject is granted a certificate or authorized to teach THE beerdrinking capacity of some men seems almost beyond comprehen sion The New York World has been investigating the subject and says Men who work in breweries are credited with being the largest daily consumers of beer At Everards from fifteen to eighteen quarters are drank every day by the employes but Joe who stands behind the free bar said that thirty or forty glasses was a good individual average One man said he

prohibit worth a cent discouragingDr You have certainly done the Doctor a very great injustice You may also have killed the hope aroused in some sad mothers heart that her son would yet lead a sober life Ilniow whereof I speak when I ydoesThe clipping you gave from the CourierJournal is so far as I am able to learn correct Your argument and conclusion drawn therefrom is fallacious Your reasoning is exactly the same as that given by those who do not favor Prohibition when they say that because a drunken man can occasionally befound in our Pro hibition states therefore Prohibition dont prohibit and I suppose it is from that Argument you take your quotation your linesA good Prohibitionist like you should know better than to attempt to put up a lame argument used bya saloonkeeper They are certain to be caught sooner or laterIf youhad followed the Voice instead of the CourierJournal you would have doubtless avoide d falling into error for in com menting editorially on the case substantiallythat we are not to conclude that the Keeley treatment is a failure Six months ago the Voice openly opposed the treatment and de youhavebetter I hope you will be con vinced also Nor are you correct in saying that the treatment is a scheme o f the saloonkeepers You are aware that I am not engaged i any such business But very few o your readers know that there is any such person as myself in existence For their benefit allow me to stat that Iam a ProhibitionisttU exchairman of the Sixth Con gressional Districthaving resigned only a few weeks ago on accoun of my removal to this city which is out of said district and am now a member of the State Executivee committee of the Prohibition party so I think no one will ac cuse me commending the treat ment for benefit of the saloon- keepers I have no interest in the ij tsofthetrcatment My onl- T P reason far advocating it is tha men may be made of the unfortu nates and that mothers hearts may be made glad My knowledge is based principally upon facts not on news paper talk- Last January accompanied a patient to Dr Keeleys head quarters at Dwight Ills and remained there several days I saw the working of the treatmen- and am ready to pronounce it a great if not a greater success than any medicine in the world Dr Keeley does not claim to cure every ill that flesh is heir to He does claim to cure the liquor morphine and opium habits and he does it His is not a medicine that will cure every case nor does he offer 1000 reward for a case which can not be cured When our ordinary physicians cure acase of pneumonia they do not guarantee that the patient never be able to contract th disease again if he violates the laws of health and exposes him self Dr Keeley treats drunkenness as a disease He eradicates it from the system so that there is no craving or desire for liquor but he warns his patients that if they take one drink this craving will probably come back In other words he places them in the same position toward it that you and I are Although neith yifand get drunk just as quick anybodyIn to me of the efficacy of his treatment the said I can not say that I cure every case but I could safely guarantee ninety per cent it is next to certaintyHowever business in connection with his treatment and does not actually guarantee a cure in any caser Myexperience in regard to the liquor treatment bears out his statement and I hear that he is even more successful with the patientsknow es I and office addresses will be- furmshed to any one interested who have used the liquor treatment All of them bad been ad dicted to the habit for at least fifteen years and some of them thirty three of them were treated at Dwight and the other seven took the home treatment Of these only one at the end of ten months has fallen and strange say it was one of those too the treatment at Dwight from the Doctors own hands He did not make the statement 4tci5r to me in person but I understand he said it was not throughany craving or desire for liquor that too the first drink The following instance will serve to show how efficiently the treatment is in some instances One of the patients while on the train returning from Dwight be came engaged in conversation with a man who was drinking and just from smelling the mans breath he was made so sick that he was compelled to raise the car window and deposit his last meal on the roadside The home treatment seems to be as efficacious when taken strictly according to directions as that given by the Doctor in personIn to another charge in our article allow me to say that eeley lias not kept the treatment entirelyto himself it will not die with It is true he has not made it public but he has taken no patent onitIt is a remedy which he has discoverednot accidentally but after a research of twenty years Anyone else is at perfect liberty to hunt for it for the same length of time A man is certainly en titled to the result of his own charges are certainly reasonable enough A patient who goes to Dwight is required to re port at the Doctors office four times a day which makes twenty eight times per week and for all these visits he charges you only 2500 That is as cheap as our common doctors work treatment on an average requires only three weeks There are thousands oi men who would give ten times that much to be from the appetite Furthermore the home treatment can be taken for 90 He has disclosed the secret to two trustedmen Lastly as to the effect of the Iredmalaria can be cured in most cases by proper treatment do you think the law should allow a man to keep a stagnant pond on his premises which breeds malaria befd a Simply because a remedy is four for curing a drunkard is that any liquoer ness should be allowed to exist diecovtSecrets can not be kept forever and this one will be no exception I predict that it will leak out just about the time National Prohibition is carried and to such sanguine mortals as you and me that time dues not seem far distant thetn go a drink but may have their takingKeeleysThe strong arm ot the law will say to the gentlemen of the liquor traffic you shall not tempt me to create sucH an unhuman will the woes wails am misery caused by the liquor ends truly G B VViNSLow I print this letter of Brother Winslow not because he is right in his views of the Keeley cure but because he is absolutely and wholly wrong and the position he occupies makes his error all the more dangerous Neither Keeley nor any other man that ever lived ever cured a kqttaer y that any man ever will Any lie does harm I have had men to say to me that if they believed the Christian religion to he false they would never tell anybody because thsy are certain it isdoiug so much good Such men have neither

medicine I willsetyou up all hunky Bro Winslow and good Dr Keeley are saying to the world the time has come when there is not any specialnecessity for sad mothers hearts to beat with solicitude about their boys going to clu rooms and hanging about when the worst comes 900 will fix him up all right and almost anybody can raise 900 or get somebody to do it for them thingks gold It the bichloride of

my endorsement of himTo have been feeding 3000 people on bread and fish simply to appease their hunger for one day while he declined to tell what he knew about the bichloride of gold would not have been a farce as a miracle but a terrible reflection on him as a humanitarian Bro Winslows intimation that my position against Keeley is a reflection upon his loyalty to Pro hibition is entirely unwarranted No fair reading of what I then said or am now saying can reflect upon anybodys loyulty to Prohi bition It has no bearingupon the question ills position as a member of the State Executive Committee shows that the Prohi bition party of the state have just as much confidence in his loyalty theyhaveHe is a lawyer I thinkor his brother isand if I did not per sonally know his standing Iwould believe him a paid striker for Keeley The Doctor is a shrewd old devil with a good Yankee trick to rake in the shekels He saw Winslows position in the Prohibi tion party saw that he had brought up in the backwoods o Kentucky and was guileless and thought other people honest be cause he was honest himself and Keeley laid for him and got him A mans telling me that he has seen things with his own eyes doe 0not amount to a row of pins wit meThere is not a finer citizen in Lexington than S A Charles He holds the most responsible positions and has the confidence ofeverybody in town He lives
