young men often minors who club in together and order by the gallon whisky by express or beer by the keg which Is taken to a place ap pointed a quiet grove perhaps where they hold high carnival and

NOTES FROM LIKENS My work this week has been a vet remarkable SUCCCHB owing to the hot weather and the very AH I wrote last week I was in Hal ren county endeavoring to put out candidate for the legislature So o Monday Juno 17 the Prohibitionists c that thriving little community met 1 thu court house In the form of a con vention But before the convention I talked for one hour to a good crow that had gathered to hoar me ha been previously announced Mr C T Morrison was put In and he was named Ho very modestly accepted the pro offered honor and said cmphaticalt that he would chase his opponent the county and was going in t electedBro is one of the leading citizens of lifts county and is loved who know him He will make i thorough canvass and if not elected will be a good second to the man wit electedTuesday at 1 p m I landed a franklin the capital city of Simpson iounty one of the best counties so is her morals tire concerned in Ken ucky and was at once taken into tit custody of Bro Chns Brovard an Jane Prohibitionist and one of tit eading citizens in Franklin Ilia home vas my home for a full week It in in to say right here that Bro tire rard is blessed with a lovely intelll ent wife and two as sweet little as over lived Margaret nUll He iwca tho one six years old and the ether one Ho does not only train hip hildren up In tho way they should go rut his dogs horses and chickens also There Is but one town In this whine ounty and that in Franklin a city of bout 2000 people HO till our appoint tents save onn were at country hurchen from three to eight miles rum town 0 to VIA extremely bURY farmers a met its nomination unanimously allover Iii tar old l order children ball lire Brcvard myself and Old Daisy made all tho holding five meeting out of town Owing to the hot weather wheat harvests and some other local all our appointments In the country were not very largely attended except one at Sulphur Springs on Sun day Here we were met by about 260 very intelligent people It IB certainly a model neighborhood and they their appreciation for our labors with a collection of eight dollars and twenty cents from passing around the lint At all my appointments I was as sisted by Bro Brovard who Is a speaker One of the things we arc dreaming of is to see Bro Brcvard going tip and down this broad Held preaching Prohi bition There is where he ought to be and there Is where he will be if a few of our wealthy Prohibitionists will only increase their contributions to our state fund We have received in cash for this and last week about 45 while our have been very small The state fund is gradually growing bor dering on 1000 since last January we have raised This week we tire to be in Logan county next week in Warren county and the next week in Hard in county Then we make a trip to eBech Grove and Calhoon when wo will pull off for about ten days taking in the big fair and National Conference of the Prohibition party At all my appointments in Simpson county Bro Brovard made a talk as well as myself Ho and Mrs Brevard go out to tho country churches and speak and sing to the people What do you say to It Lot tis In roase our state fund so as to enable state committee to employ such talent as our Simpson county WM UK13NS State Organizer Chas Brovard Simpson countys in lomitahlo Prohibition worker has oc opted an invitation

LOCAL OPTION It IB often urged that third party Prohibitionists are opened to local op tion and work against it Wo are not opened to local option and In all our history and extensive acquaintance with Prohibition party voters we have over yet seen or heard of one when a local fight was up that voted against local option or said aught tue proposed measure However look on local option aa being one form of license and contend that tho saloon cannot b i killed by local op tion alone Whatever we say in this article must not be construed to mean that we are opposed to local option So that much must be dismissed There is an organization In this state which everybody Is acquainted with known as the InterDenominational Temperance League whose alms and intentions are to secure local option in every county possible Its aim is goon that Is local option Is better than nigh license But Its method of securing oven local option Is what we object to and right here Is the vital power of our subject and it we are a little tedious please forgive us of this one IntrusionThat Leagues intentions are good and its ultimate aim is whole some we do not deny but we do in sist and want to make it plain that its plans and mode of warfare are wholly impracticable and cannot bear up a test case In the first place it appeals to its enemies tor what it wants that is to tho old parties The two old parties have enacted every liquor law there is on the stat ute books of every state In the Union and on the statute books of the United States That much the old parties have doneAgain when tho people rose in their might and In spite of the two old parties demanded a constitutional amendment and voted on the question as they did in Kansas and Maine the two old parties an i in this case it was the Republican Jarty rendered the law of but little effect because of Its with the liquor element In a Democratic state tho people de manded a vote upon this question and it carried but as soon as Prohibition carried all over the state the Demo party led by Gov Tilman at once to nullity the law and in its stead Instituted and inaugurated tho disgraceful Dispensary system which Is a governmental saloon It Is to those corrupt party organiza tions that tho Temperance League is appealing for help Tho Prohibitionists come up and tell the people tho old parties are whisky parties are allies of the saloon and to go Into a combination or an agree ment with them Is to Insure defeat but that the only way to do Is for all who are In sentiment agreed against tho liquor traffic to form them a party of their own and be willing to wait until this party gets strong enough to take Into Its hands tho reins of the whole I I K I eratic Prohibitionists tinder tit LlI truckling Georgia v proceeded government That IH the third party plan Another important feature about leagues method and the third paityn method IB the way each raises cam paign funds The Prohibitionists go to their own people in their own meet ings and appeal for funds for the use of the party with the understanding It IN for party work The league aiso taken up collections In KB own and makes appeals for its use through own paper Thus far wo are equal and are willing to grant tho league the same privilege ac corded our party But the league Is not content in up collections in its own meetings and making appeals for funds through lt own papers but go right Into our religious bodies and make public for funds and subscriptions to Its work It makes it on the supposi tion that the league is nonpartisan when in fact it Is oinnipurtltmn and every dollar given to the league will perpetuate the two old parties in pow er It is true that BO far as we are aware the league has never supported any party In Kentucky except the Re publican party but It reserves the right to support the Democratic party at any time it sees fit to do so Now it Is plain that when a person makes a subscription to this league he makes a subscription to one or the other of the two old parties We dont sue any reason why all Democrats and Republicans who want to see their party perpetuated In power should not rally to the leagues financial support unless the Individual giver has reasons to believe his party will not get its pro rataBut for the league whose aim is to support one of the old parties to conic before a religious body that has no politics and through a of the whole affair commit that body to its work of perpetuation we must acknowledge we are a little hu miliated and chagrined and believe the people should understand the sit uationWhy is it that any religious body should commit Itself to any organiza tion whose intention is to keep alive one or both of the two whisky parties and at the same time allow collections to be taken for its support If the In terDenominational union IB allowed that privilege we insist tliit the same privilege should be accorded the Pro hibition party and which wo have never naked for and will not ask for Why Is it the league should be recog nized in the gatherings and the Pro hibition party bo ignored It la tho time of year now for asso ciations and assemblies of till kinds to 1m hold and wo suggest to our party Prohibitionists that when the matter spoken of above cornea up for settle ment that they inquire into the affair and ascertain of possible why the par ty whoso aim la tho national destruct ion of tho saloon system is ignored Tot tile Prohibitionists of Kentucky demand of our religious bodies the strafe fair treatment that la accorded tho league and till will be well the its Its unto misrepresentation meet- Ings taK- ing appeals To vote for the bent man simply means that you will vote for your par tyM nominee- If you see the need of our people kept Informed on the Prohibition question peak to your friends and get them to take the Vindicator It only 25 cents per year and no one will hardly refuse you If you want to do still a greater work for our cause get them to take both the Vindicator and the Now Voice The two papers cost but ono dollar A big scramble will soon he on In this state OA to what party will go to the next legislature So far as we are concerned wo do not care for which ever way It tho saloon will not be molested The saloon runs the two old parties in Kentucky and everybody knows It They may succeed In fool ing a few temperance men but they Ladies Kid
