of resubmitting the prohibition amendment
anil tliat 1L provi-d thai a majority of
thim are 111 favor or resubmission.
The Democrats and IIlK'ral Republicans
are opposed to resubmission, because it
is feu nil that it weiild result in the adop
tion of constitutional prohibition, and
brins that issue back into the Slate's
politics as a p mi. merit isflie.
The legislature of two earn azo paused
the present reltcense law, and in order
tocit voles wiui which ,o carry it, passed
a resubmission resolution.
Sued a lesolutlon must go through two
Micci.ie legislature before the question

tion askiiur for the protection of mediums,
and uudeau Impassioned plea for us aduu-
Uon. In her remarks she said that thcsplr
tiiiillsts of this country repudiate turtuiu
tellins. At the conveniue of the convention at 2
o'clock, the president. Mr. Barrett, sub
mitted bis annual reimrt.
The report shows that there is an In
creased interest.in spiritualism tlirouchout
ilu- country. Hesaid that iiioeineiitshave
brt-n made to crusti it. Recardluj; Hie pro
gress of spiritualism, he said:
"Spiritualism, us a reform moement. is
now in the third stace and is rapidly an
proaehlnc the fourth. Our people have
organized none too soon lo n-el lt.uud
the result will be when the fifth act opens
that priests, prelates and bishoiwot all de
nominations will rush forward crvinc out.
We are spirituansls. anil liuu'crtrn spirit
ualism U the world'.' "
The reiiort shows that the membership of
the national association tias increased 05
per cent durins the past year. Mr. Bar
rett referred in strone laucuace to the Per
secution of mediums.
He recommends that committees on lit 1
AUtlon and legislation lie appointed in
every Stale with sufficient means at their
isuosal to niake an aucn-ssive Xijrjit on
the prosecution of medium, lie recom
mends that earnest miss'onary work be
doue t increase the membership oX the
Itecardiue politics. Mr. Barrett says:
"Many of us are citizens of the Umlsd
States, and as such have the richt of
inrrracc. cscentlnc. of course, all in
telligent women outside of Wvominir and
Colorado, who are classed with 'idiots,
paupers, and Indians, not taxed.' These
votes count and ouaht to be cast by us
in a way to make them i-ounl.
"Many have become so discusted with
politics that we do not even o near the
polls. A strikinc example of what the
spiritualists can do ir Iher try, is found
in the defeat of Gov. Foraker, in 1S8.I. in
Ohio. 1 recommend that this convention
consider the matter anil sneak with no
uncertain sound thereon."
The niornliiK sessions of the conven
tion will be free, but at the evenimr
