AFTER THE CHILDEEN.
How the W. C. T. U. Will Get the
Yotes of Allegheny Fathers for
THE CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT
They "Will Carry the Campaign Into the
Public School Rooms.
TSAIEKS TESTEEDAr FOE PE0HIBITI0X
TheJ Woman's Christian Temperance
TJnion is about to make a new departure to
reach voters, and place before them the mat
ter of prohibitory Constitutional amendment
The women propose to carry the work into
the public schools, and through the children
reach the fathers.
Yesterday afternoon an "amendment prayer
meeting" of the Union was held at their
headquarters, Ko. 534 Smithfield street.
Owing to insufficient notice the attendance
was net as large as it would otherwise hare
been. Among those who were pres
ent were Mrs. Dr. Swift and
Mrs. J. S. Collins, two of the original band
of "crusaders," who were arrested and
locked up in the Central station for carry
ing on the temperance work in front of
saloons in 1872.
The meeting was opened by Mrs. Dr.
Swift, who stated flie object of the gathcr
ini Her remarks were to the effect that
prayers would be needed to guide the people
so they would see the necessity of voting for
TEMPEKANCE IX THE SCHOOLS.
After the reading of the Scriptures and a
prayer bv Mrs. Swift, Mrs. J. Ellen Foster
offered a" prayer. She spoke in a pathetie
manner of yesterday's disaster, and ex
pressed pity for the families of the men who
Mrs. Monroe, a State Prohibition lecturer,
whoquictlv came into the room, surprised
the ladies, who did not know she was in the
city. Mrs. Monroe spoke of the work she
was doing among the schools and particu
larly amongthe teachers' institutes through
out the State, She calls her method ''scien
tific teaching," and illustrated a number of
cases where it had met with good results.
At the conclusion of her remarks, Mrs.
Swift spoke of the necessity of baring Mrs.
Monroe lecture before the Teachers' Institute
of Allegheny County. Mrs. Foster told
how the teachers in Iowa presented the
liquor question to the children, who in turn
talked about the matter to their parents.
In this way the Toters in the family were
made to see the issue, and when the time
came they Toted the Prohibition ticket
She advised the women to be courageous,
and even if they were counted out at the
polls, they would achieve a victory.
When asked what she meant by "being
counted out," she said: "If they did not get
enough votes." She stated they had hun
dreds of men who would promise to vote for
the amendment, but when the time came
they would stay at home and let somebody
else do the voting.
Mrs. Monroe wanted to put a copy of
Julia Coleman's catechism on alcoholic ex
periments in the hands of every teacher in
the public schools of Allegheny county, and
let them teach the catechism to the children.
It would be necessary for the union to bring
their social influence to bear upon the
teachers to get them interested in the work.
Mrs. Collins spoke of how the crusaders
were dragged through the streets and put
into cells alongside drunken men in 1872.
Among other ladies present was Mrs.
Ella Watson, State Secretary of the union.
