Thefollowingarethe resolutions adopted
We congratulate the people of the state
of Kansas upon the progress made toward
a complete enforcement of the prohibitory
liquor law in the state. After nearly five
years of trial, we find the following results
of the operation of the law:
The wholesale liquor trade wilhin the
Btate has almost ceased.
The sale of liquor as a beverage has been
The open dramshjp is almost entirely
The secret places in which liquor is sold
in violation of the law have been greatly re
duced in number, and the general sobriety
and wonderful prosperity of our people are
matters of universal comment by strangers
who come within our gates.
Bealizing, therefore, the great benefits of
constitutional prohibition in Kansas, we
demand of all political parties that it shall
be retained as the settled policy of the gov-
uriuueub m uiib siais.
There is but one way to enforce constitu
tional prohibition, and that is to make a
vigorous application of the law for its en
forcement. We do not demand extraordi
nary remedies, but we have a right to ex
pect that the officers of the law shall apply
the remedies provided by law for the sup
pression of the illegal liquor traffic. Yet
these remedies will not be applied unless
ha people require of their officers that this
uty be performed, and we call upen th

should be vigorously executed by all court
f and officers should have the prompt and
active co-operation of all law abiding citi
zens independently of personal opinion or
Besolved, That the issue in this state is
simply law as against lawlessness, the sov
ereignty of the people as against the sover
eignty of the liquor power, and that we
cheerfully accept the issue thus made, con
fident that tbe intelligence, courage and
virtue of our citizens are able to mantain
the interests and to defend the rights of a
million and a quarter of people insolently
assailed by the liquor sellers and their con
federates. Besolved, That in our opinion, after
e perienee of six months, the prese
h nor law is in many important partica
larsan improvement npon the original
law, but as it is still imperfect on some
points, the executive committee is hereby
instructed to see that the needed amend
ments are carefully prepared and presented
to the legislatuae for consideration at the
Basolved, That, whereas, that portion ot
the liquor law granting to druggists the
privilege of the sale of liquor for allowed
purpose was framed at the express request
of druggists thonselvea, and was designed
to protect honorable men in the legal pros
ecution of their business; and
Whereas, It is notorious that unde .
coyor of the law some druggists are selling
liquor as a beverage, and some dishonest
persons have opened so called drug stores
for thepurposeof selling liquor as a bever
age. We call upon all law abiding and
honorable druggists to aidiu lelieying their
business from the stigma placed upon it by
unprincipled men, and to assist the officers
in the detection and punishment of viola
tions of the law by real or pretended deal
ers in drugs, and we brand the men who
inflict untold damage on the community,
andtrample upon its laws,by sailing liquor
as a beverage in diug stores, as outlaws, no
more worthy of the respect and patronage
of the community than other outlaws and
we hereby hold them up to the contempt
and scorn of all honest people.
Besolved, That the existing law points
out the mode and provides the means for
the suppression of the sale of liquor as a
beverage by druggists, as well as in saloons,
and that, since the remedies are in the
hands of the people, we urge upon all citi
zens the necessity of the most vigilant and
fearless prosecution of violators of the law,
and specially of those who are using a legi
timate bu&inees as a cloak to conceal their
pursuit of a traffic always wicked and infa
mous, and now made criminal a traffic
equally condemned by the conscience of all
good men, by the decree of the law of the
land, and by the jast udgment of almighty
Besolved, Thata city government which
directly or indirectly licenses the sale of liq
uors within its limits, and derives reve
nues therefrom, is in wilful, defiant rebel
lion against the will of the people and the
laws of the state. The cities of Leaven
worth, Atchison and Dodge notably occupy
this position, and thar we demand special
action with reference to the attitude of
thes9 cities toward the constitution and
laws of the state, so as to put a speedy end
to this demoralizing situation, and that
while we note with gratification that the
law officer of the state is applying the rem
edies to the saloon keepers in these rebel
lious cities, we respectfully ask that the
remedies ot the law be applied to the cltv
governments, and that the illeeal snnrr nf
revenue be cut off.
Besolved, That we demand of all politi
cal parties that they support the constitu
tion and laws of the state upon the subject
of prohibition as well as on all other sub
jects , and we afflirm that we will not vote
nor act either directly or indirectly, with
any party which by its party machinery
does not favor the vigorous enforcement of
the prohibitory liquor law.
Besolved, The republican party in Kan
sas has rendered invaluable service to the
cause of prohibition, and is entitled to the
confidence and support of the prohibition
ists of the state, so long as it maintains its
present announced position nn thmt nnM.
Hon. ' "
Besolved, That in the name of the tern
perance people of Kansas, this union heart
ily thanks all offidale of every grade and
party, who have honestly tried to enforce
the prohibitory law.
Besolved, That officials of every grade'
and party who have failed to discharge
their duty to the best of their ability, de
serve severe censure, and should be given
to understand by their constituents that
persistence in that course will cause them
to be treated as unfaithful ssrvants.
Besolved, In the 'udgment of this con
vention, that in proportion to tbe popula
tion of the state now and then, there is not
more than one-tenth of the amount of in
toxicating liquor used as a beverage, that
was used for that purpose before the adop
tion of the prohibition Dolirv.
Besolved, That werequeetthe legislature,
