THE BESTJLT IK MASSACHUSETTS.
Iola, Kans, May 27, '89.
Mr. C. F. Scott.
In a recent number of the Register,
it was stated that the third party pro
hibitionists of New Jersey drew
from the republican party enough to
elect a working majority of democrats.
Now I would like to ask what drew
the republican votes in Massachusetts,
when the vote was cast for a prohibi
tion amendment? If the republican
party is a prohibition party, why wa3
prohibition defeated by 45,000 majority
in a State that zive a renubllcan ma
jority of 32,000 for president?
xoura for Information,
E. A. C. H.
Our correspondent will doubtless ac
cept Gen. Fisk as good authority on
such a question as the foregoing, and
he says, (in a letter published in the
Reoister last week) that prohibition
failed in Massachusetts "because the
masses are not yet ready for prohibi
tion." This statement leaves nothing farther
to be said in reply to tho question pro
posed. The Reoister is entirely will
ing, however, to respond to the implied
charge that, because prohibition failed
in Massachusetts,the Republican party
is therefor4 a whiskey party. -In the
first place this paper has never said
that the Republican party is a
prohibition party. It is too broad
party to be limited by so nar
row a definition. It has said, however
that the cause of temperance and ulti
mate prohibition must work through
that party: and we do not consider
that tiie result in Massachusetts in the
least, inva!ldaie.i,ihl claim , Itja gea
craliy conceded that the Repnblican
party favora a protective tariff; yefc
there are thousands of individual Re
publicans who favor a revenuo tariff.
So whilo tho dominating sentiment of
the Republican party the country over
is undeniably in favor of prohibition,
there are yet large numbers of individ
ual Republicans who are opposed to it.
It would be just as reasonable to call
the party a free trade party in the
former instance as it would to call it a
whiskey party in the latter case.
The Republican party has suffered
much unmerited and uufair'cqndemna
tiou because of the action of a very
small minority. It has happened, for
example, that in a Republican State a
proposition to submit a prohibitory
amendment to the people has been de
feated before tho Legislature, by only
three Republican members of that
body joining with all the Democratic
members. Yet nothing is said about
the Democratic party which voted
solidly against it, while tho unmeasur
ed reproaches' are heaped upon tho
Republican party although nine outof
ten of its members voted tor It. We
submit that this Is not fair. So in the
case now under consideration we pro
test against the Republican pirty be
ing held responsible for the failare of
prohibition so long as it ia generally
conceded that it got nine Republican,
votes for every one Democratic ote
The writer of U1I3 did not folio the
light in Massachusetts very closely,
and It not qualified to express a person
al opinion about it. We very well re
member, however, a long talk we had
about it with ex-Attorney-General
Bradford who had spent several weeks
in the campaign. It was the day be
fore the election and the General said:.
"I do not expect the amendment to
c-trry. The campaign has been wretch
edly managed. It has been ran by
third party cranks and women who.
are very good peoplo, but who do not
know a little, bit about politics. They
do not fenaw how to get out thtlr vote
or how to do hardly any of the things,
that are necessary to a successful polit
ical campai2n ."
