The Anti-Liquor Republicans
Meet in Convention in
Senator "Windom, of Minnesota,
Chosen Chairman by Unan
Formally Declnred by Speakers and
Resolutions that the Purpose
of ihc Movement is Not
To Organize a Third Party, but to
Demand of the Republican
Party that It Shall
Champion the Cause of Humanity in
in this Instance as It Did So
Successfully in 1801.
THE GREAT ISSUE.
The Anti-Liquor Republicans Hold
Their First National Con
vention. Chicago, Sept. 16. The first national
convention of anti-liquor Republi
cans began its session in this city
this morninsr. The convention
was held in Madison Street theatre. About
300 delegates were on the floor with only a
sprinkling of outsiders. The convention
was called to order by Albert Grillin, of
Kansas, who asked Itcv. Arthur Little, of
Chicago to open the proceedings with
prayer. Mr. Giiilin suggested the name of
U. S. Senator Henry W. 131air, of New
Hampshire,- for temporary chairmau; J.
Schai'er. of Illinois temporary secretary;
L. B. Elliott, of Kair-as, assistant secretary;
E. K. Hutchinson, of Des Moines, Iowa,
reading clerk. The gentlemen were elected
In addressing the convention Senator
Blair .said: "J feel highly honored in being
asked to preside over this great historic
convention, which I firmly believe will live
in the annals of all time. We arc here for
the destruction of the rum traffic through
out this country and throughout the world.
I think I speak the sentiment of the con
vention when I say that as between high li
cense and prohibition wc arc in favor of
prohibition. (Cheers, great.) Mr. Blair
went on to say that they also met as Repub
licans; they wen in that party and would
not be driven out, and he was one of those
who believed that it was only through the
RcDiiblican party that the suppression of
the Iimior traffic could be secured.
The call of the states was men proceoeieu
A oommittc on resolutions was appointed.
The committee on credentials reported
that 187 accredited delegates were present.

The committee on permanent organiza
tion reported the name of ex-Senator Wil
liam Windom of Minnesota for permanent
chairmau. lie was unanimously elected.
The secretary protein was elected per
Vice-presidents were named, one for each
Mr. Windom was loudly cheered as le
was escorted to the chair.
When the chairman appeared before the
convention, he said : I highly appreciate
the great honor you have conferee! upon
me. "There arc possibly other gentlemen
present who could state better than I can
precisely the purposes of this convention.
Wc arc here under the call of true and
loyal Republicans desiring through that
party to accomplish what wc believe will
be a'great good for the American people.
For "myself, I never had the slightest
thought of attempting to organize a new
political party. 1 think that such thought
does not enter the minds of any other dele
gate here present. The party that freed
the slaves, that dignified human labor, that
enacted homestead laws, that suppressed
the great rebellion, defended the nation's
honor in peace.and advanced it to the
front rank of the nations of the earth
is good enough for inc.
The speaker said the record of the party
for twenty years showed a willingness to
grapplo this new issue and carry it to vic
tory. The issue was as grave a any that
Republicans ever had to meet in the past.
It resolved itself into tl c question whether
the saloon was to dominate the politics of
the nalson We do not meet to dictate to
the Republican part-, said the speaker; we
arc here simply for consultation. We meet
to encourage' it and take hold of this ques
tion which it surely will have to do. We
should look at the question solely from a
political standpoint; not from "a moral
standpoint The saloon was in politics
with its assessments and money. It was
the open alley of anarchy. It, today, con
trolled the politics of eveiy large city. It
electa your mayors, said the speaker. In
Minnesota the 'Democratic party had nomi
nate J for governor the very incarnation of
H then spoke for thirty minutes on
general issues: touched on the prohibition
ists; said it was his view that they could
carry out other purposes in a better way b
followinp the lead of the Republican party;
would find that party had said that slavery
should extend no farther and on that plat
form slavery was absolutely abolished. If
the Republican party would declare for
high license or local "option and recognize
the right of the people to vote on the ques
tion directly when they wished to do so,
all lover of temperance should folio v.- that
On the conclusion of Mr. Windouis' ad
dress the convention adjourned to 2 o'clock.
When the convention reassembled in the
afternoon the committee on resolutions was
not prepared to report and did not appear
before the convention until 5 o'clock. In
mean time short speeches were made by a
number of delegates on the general temper
ance issue in several states of the union.
The report of the committee was as fol
lows: I The anti-saloon Republicans by their rep
, resenlativcs in national conentio:i assem
' bled declare as follows:
' First That the liquor traffic a it v-xisU
today in the United States i the
1 enemy of society, a fruitful
i source of corruption in politics,
the ally of anarchy, a school of crime, and
I with its avowed purpose of seeking to cor
ruptly control elections and legislation is a
menace to the public welfare and deserves
4 the condemnation of all good men.
second l iiat we ueciare war agamsi inc
saloon and hold it to be the supreme eluty
of the government to adopt such measures
as shall restrict it and control its influence,
and at the earliest possible moment extin
guish it altogether.
Third We believe the national govern
ment should absolutely prohibit the manu
facture and sale of intoxicating liquors in
the District of Columbia and in all the ter
ritories of the United States.
Fourth Wc believe that the best practi
cal method of dealing with the liquor traf
fic in the several states is to let the people t
decide whether it shall be prohibited by the
submission of constitutional amendments, j
and until such amendments arc adopted,
by the passage of local option laws.
Fifth That as the sal business creates a
special burden of taxation upon the people
to support courts, jails and alms houses,
therefore, a large annual tax should be lev
ed upon the saloons so long as the continue
to exist,, and they should be made respon
ble for all public and private injury result
ing from the traffic.
Sixth That the Republican party where
ever and whenever in power still faithfully
enforces whatsoever ordinance, statutes or
constitutional amendments that may be cn
actcel for the restriction or suppression of
the liquor traffic. ,
Seventh That we approve the action of
congress and of those states that have
done so, in providing for teaching the phy
siological effects of intoxicants in our pub
lic schools, and that we earnestly recom
mend to every state legislature the enact
ment of such laws as shall provide for the
thorough teaching of such effects to our
Eisrlit Wc demand that the Republican
party to which wc belong" anel whose wel
fare we cherish, snail take a nrm ana de
cided stand as the friend of the home and
the enemy of the saloon; in favor of this
policy and these measures. We pledge our
selves to do our best to cause the party to
take such a stand and wc call upon all
temperance men and all friends of human
ity of whatever party or name to join with
us in securing these objects, and in support
of the Republican party so far as it shall
The resolutions were adopted as a whole
with only three dissenting votes. Speeches
were made by liev. . .uitnrop, oi Minne
sota, Gen. Nettleton of the same state,
Judge S. Tyler, of Indiana, and others,
holding to the general view that the practi
cal hope of the temperance people rested
with the Republican party.
