F1UDAY, DEC. 18, 1885.
STILL FURTHER REASONING.
IXTTKU FllOM "NOTA BENE."
Tlic times arc out ol joint!
Oh I cursed spite.
That "D. M. U." essayed to set them
I have neither the time nor tho
ink to spare in following friend
Crowley in his bcc-liko flight over
the face of the globe in search of
drops of prohibition honey material,
but will content myself by extend
ing to him a little of that generous
feeling which the liquor meu of Ohio
extended to the prohibition fanatics,
when they voted with them for the
passage of a local option law. He
tells us of a certain gentleman,
living somewhere in Australia, who
will not allow the sale of intoxicat
ing drinks within the confines of his
domain or garden 1 Now, I will
generously and fearlessly strengthen
the hand which my literary anta
gonist has raised against me, by
imparting to him tho fact that no
spirituous, liquors were allowed to
bo sold in tho Garden of Eden, in
Solomon's Temple or the Pyramids
of Egypt 1 Mr. C. asserts in the
flattest terms that the liquor traffic
is not in the slightest degree repro
ductive. In the kindest manner
possible, I request him to carefully
read tho following extract from a
New Yoik paper: "Ncal Dow has
been for years notorious as the
champion of the cold water fanatics
in this country, and more especially
in the small State of Maine, his
native earth. To-day this leader
cannot find much comfort in the
fact that this great liquor trade, on
which he has wasted his life's ener
gies, is the most important industry
in the Union, and the one that gives
more support to the general govern
ment and more circulation to the
dollar than any other. It is clear
to the liberal mind that liquor, with
all its faults, has many virtues.
With Prohibition, high license, blue
nose, cold water, narrow-mmcicu,
unjust and really unconstitutional
measures which Dow and his fol
lowers arc advocating would soon
result in sinking us to a fourth or
fifth rate position among nations.
We cannot consent to be ruled by
fanatics suffering from bad livers
and contracted craniums. Prohibi
tion acts like the cold hand of death
wherever it strikes. It kills trade
and gives the place a grave yard
After indulging in a lengthy and
jumbled up mass of cullings and
gleanings from printed to order
sources, which I openly stamped as
being totally unreliable, and from
which his uninteresting three-chapter
discourse appears to me to have
been mainly made up, he cooly in
forms us that "total abstinence is
the motto of every athletic club to
day," and that "the champion oars
man and champion shot of to-day
are water drinkers!'" If fiiend
Crowley attaches any importance to
his being regarded as a sane person,
or ono whose word is worth the
breath required to utter it, he will
at onco take back such unfounded
utterances. From boyhood I have
taken a lively interest in athletic
sports and exercises of every des
cription, and in my prime I had but
few equals as a long distance runner.
For thirteen years I was an active
member of ono of the leading
athletic associations of America,
taking part in nearly all of our
private and public exhibitions, and
my name may still be found among
the list of retired and honorary
members of that body; therefore,
when friend Crowley wishes to throw
total abstinence or prohibition dust
into the eyes or cars of tho public,
as to the mottos or hygienic customs
adopted or followed by athletes, he
should make sure that the old man
is away from homo. "The cham
pion oarsman and champion shot arc
water drinkers," are they? Why,
the same might truthfully be &aid of
every living creature. If thoso
statistics (V) that ho bo complacently
proffers for my perusal contained
no more valuable information than
ho seems to have been able to glean
from them, the farther off he keeps
them from me, tho better it will be
for the cause he has so lovingly
espoused. However, as one kindly
meant offer deserves another, I will
again, with my usual magnanimity,
strengthen the hand of my antago
nist by impaiting to him tho as
tounding intelligence that all oars
men and all swimmers, champion or
othorwise, invariably decide their
contests and wngcrs on and in water !
