A meaning Hint common usage has
in these days given to the word
"temperance" is the doctrine of
total abstinence from, and the aboli
tion of the tralllc in, intoxicating
drink. This meaning, although es
tablished in one way that new mean
ings of other words an- established,
is persistently assailed by the oppo
nents of the doctrine named. Yet
the legitimacy of the new meaning
can be vindicated philosophically as
well as on the strength of current
usage. The antithesis of temper
ance is excess in any sort of conduct
or action. Temperance people, so
called, simply hold that any indul
gence in that which is injurious is
excess and therefore intemperance.
As, according to thoin, the habitual
use of strong drink is injurious to a
greater or less extent to everybody,
then it is intemperance. This is the
' position of the advanced temperance
party the world over, who are dis
tinct from those professedly temper
ance people holding that the use of
intoxicating drink in moderation in
not injurious, and therefore its im
moderate use alone intemperance.
This latter class largely recruits the
ranks of the total abstinence party,
on the principle of abstaining for the
,snkc of others from what many can-
. not use in moderation. They thereby
acknowledge that, however harmless

''r the eating of meat is adopted by
these ho would cat no meat while
the world lasted if thereby his
brother was offended or made weak.
If meat was necessary to his existence
Paul had no right to lay down such

involve the violation of the higher
Jaw holding human life sacred. In
toxicating drink is therefore- properly
nl:iiiil mi it nin- with llm uriinelimeti
fj- contraband meat of apostolic times,
fc, only upon the ground that it is not
1 'necessary to human existence, health
or happiness. Again, the temper
ance people have a right to be so
denominated by virtue of one of
the primary meanings of the word,
provided they can justify the princi
ple upon which they read it. Thus,
" temperance " is defined as, "Habi
tual moderation in regard to the in
dulgence of the natural appetites
and passions," and temperance peo
ple, denying that the appetite for
strong drink is a natural one, have
only to demonstrate that it is not, If)
prove thai any person possessed of
such an appetite is not temperate if
he indulge it in any degree. Ac
cording to this .statement of the
case, which we think cannot be
shown wrong or unfair, those who
attack the position of the temperance
people on the ground of their usurp
ing a name not belonging to them,
arc not facing the real issue. The
temperance people challenge their
opponents upon the proposition that
intoxicating dtink in any quantity,
or at any interval, is not only not
necessary hut not beneficial. It is
the part of wise men who may differ
with them to show that they are
wrong, cither in whole or in part,
and not to keep crying out against
their alleged intemperate advocacy
of their cause. Giving their oppo
nents the benefit of the term, the
"excessive" use of strong drink
produces such an abundance and an
intensity of evil, that denunciation
of the evil and its causes is nn easy
matter for any that may under
take it. Therefore, from the in
ception of the model u temperance
movement there have been doubtless,
at all stages and in all places, many
who went beyond the limits of pro
priety and exhibited iiijudiciousticss
in its advocacy in the pulpit, press
and platform. However much the
movement may have suffered from
this cause, it docs not detract from
the merits of the main question.
Gradually the movement has grown
' in numbers and iullucncc, until now
J its opponents hae infiuitcly more to
i meet than the utterances of the
I typical temperance lecturer, who is
I usually represented as a consummate
I ranter. The propagandUm of total
abstinence and prohibition lias been
reinforced by the calm evidence of
science that alcohol is not necessary
but harmful to the human constitu
tion. It has been proved a dctorrcnt
instead of a help in the art of heal
ing, by ample experiment in hospi
tals and in the most eminent private
practice on both .sides of the Atlan
tic. A large array of the physicians
of Kngland have put themselves on
record to the same effect. Medical
professors in leading schools, even
some who use it themselves, demon
strate to their students that the in
variable result of the use of strong
drink is to produce organic derange
ment proportioned to the amount of
indulgence and the constitution of
the user. Insurance companies have
come by investigation and experience
to discriminate between not the
intemperate in the ordinary accepta
tion : they will have nothing to do
with him the habitual user of strong
drink and the abstainer, in favor of
the latter. Actuaries have demon
strated that human life is inevitably
shoitencd to habitual users of alco
holic beverages. These are some of
the things that the advocates of so
called moderation are challenged to
controvert, and a discussion of which
would be more profitable than carp
ing at the methods and words of
individual advocates of temperance.
It is not a question .of self-control,
or " weak " and " strong " brothers
at all, but one as to whether alcohol
is or is not poison in any form or
quantity which the race would be
