GOVERNOR GLNN ON PROHIBITION
Address of North Carolina's Chief Ex
ecutive Before Temperance Conven
tion at Raleigh.
Whatever may have been my
acts and course in the past, and
I have tried ever to be consistent,
I say here and now that the last
bridge is burned behind me and
I stand squarely with the great
temperance forces to drive out
this hideous monster from our

for misery, for justice or for
oppression. As for me, I am
heart and soul against the liquor
There is nothing advanced,
either in the industrial or moral
sphere, by strong drink except
the liquor traffic itself. Can you
point to me any benefit resulting
from the sale of liquor except to
the pocketbook of the man who
engages in the traffic? I can see
none. The great corporations
and the business men have set
their condemnation upon those
who indulge in strong drink.
I say to yon deliberately, that
after thirty years' experience as
an attorney and as a prosecuting
officer in the courts, that I am
firmly of the opinion that 60 per
cent of crime is directly the
result of strong drink and 95 per
cent is indirectly caused by in
dulgence in strong drink. Can
we then, in the face of such an
appalling array, hesitate to say
where we stand?
Not long since, I was making a
speech, I shall not say where, and
I tried to picture the future of
this great commonweatlth. I
told those people that I trusted
the day would come when books
instead of bottles would be in
your young men's hands and
schools and churches instead of
saloons and gambling places would
be scattered the length and
breadth of the state. When I
finished my speech a man came
up to me and said: "Look here,
you attacked my business to-day.
I voted for you, but I want to
say that I am sorry and I will
never vote for you again." I told
him: "Well, my friend, I don't
know that 1 shall ever ask for
votes again, I don't know that I
I shall be a candidate for another
office, but I'll tell you that if I
must secure votes by stifling my
conscience then, so hell) me God,
I shall remain a private citizen
for the rest of my life." The
man seemed indignant. "Dont't
you know that Christianity and
my business can't stand together?"
he said. "Won't yur write that
down over your own signature,"
I told him. "I wish I had that
statement to show the people
from one end of the state to the
other, that they might see your
own indictment of the traffic."

the ho~me of Prohibition, and I
teli you that from my observation
Lnd ir quiry Prohibition is a suc
cess. I traveled thousands of
miles, visited the fairs in those
states, and in all tha.t journey I
never saw but three intoxicated
men. On the other hand, abstin
en ce from drink is the rule among
those people. I saw them tested.
I saw fourteen young men, strong
and prosperous, offered on one
occasion champagne by a South
er man, be it said to his shame,
but I was glad that he was not
a member of our party and every
on of the fourteen declined, say
ing that they used no intoxicants.
Some one will ask, "How about
Termnt? That state had Prp
hibition for fifty years, and two
vears ago the people voted it out
Iand substituted local option."
Yes, that is true, but have you
'heard the result? I talked to
the governor of Vermont, an ex~
ceert Chrisian gentleman, about
th condition there, and here is
what he told me: Two years ago.
because of abuses of the law it
soepae the people of Ver
mont threw off Prohibition. As
a result seven cities in that state
voted to great license to sell
liquor. So disastrous in every
way, so the governor of Vermont
told me, has been the affect on
those cities that five of the seven
have now voted out the saloons
and returned to Prohibition, and
it is only a question of a short
time bef or the other two cities do
+he same thing and Vermont, will
again be a Prohibition state.
"I thank God that af ter two years
experience Vermont will go back
to Prohibition," said the governor
of that state.
I thank God that North Caro
lina can not be called a whiskey
rtate. Already Greensboro, Char
lotte, Durham, Goldsboro, New
berne, Elizabeth City, and sceres
of other places where liquor was
sold have voted for Prohibition.
The people are aroused. During
the session of the legislature
some people came to me and
said: "But, Governor. you do not
seem to be for the Ward bill.',
I told them: "No, I am uot for
the Ward bill; it means nothing;
it is a mere makeshift. If I was
a whiskey man in a big town,
then I would favor it because it
would help my business. "Why
don't you let the people of North
Carolina vote on Prohibition?"
I said. The reply was that the
people were not ready for it.
I tell you, now that the people
are ready for it. The time is
ripe. Submit the question of
Prohibition to the voters of
North Carolina and I believe it
will sweep the state* by from
75,000 to 100,000 majority. I
pledge you my earnest aid in
that great fight. I will canvass
North Carolina, speak in every
county, and use the strength God
has given me to win this battle
It was, to all her friends, an
astonishing incident, that Mrs.
I. B. Hunt, of Lime Ridge, Wis.,
was cured of her dreadful sick
ness. "Doctors," she writes,
"had given me up; friends were
ready to bid me the lirsifarewell;
clouds of despair darkened my
horizon, and I was a wreck on
the shores of despondency, when
I began to take Electric Bitters,
for my frightful stomach and liver
complaint. To the astonishment
of all, I was benefited at once and
am now- completely and mira
culously restored to health." At

The Origin of This Name for the
Beautiful Days of Autumn.
In response to an inquiry from
our Longtown correspondent Inst
week, the following paragraph is
reproduced from the New In
ternational Encyclopedia as to
the origin of the name, Indian
Summer, as applied to the beauti
ful days of autumn.
As to the origin of this expres
sion, Mr. Albert Matthews has
shown that it does not occur
anywhere either iu printed books
or in manuscripts until the year
l794; but at that time it was in
use throughout the Atlantic
States. The popular belief that
Indian Summer weather was
predictedc by the native Indians
in conversation with the first
European settlers finds no do cu
mentary corroboration, and the
idea that the term Indian summer
was employed by the early set
tlers seems to be a myth. In
general, neither this term nor.
anything corresponding to it is to
be found in any Indian language.
The term Indian summer in its
present usage. was introduced
into England from America. In
1778 Horace Walpole used the
same expression but he evidently
had in mind the intense heats of
the midsummer weather in India
and the West Indies.
