The other officers are the same

Nothing special has trans

some weeks except a protract

wore commenced with our
quarterly meeting Jan. 3, con

Last, week, wochrtnicled the
beginning of the women's, tem
perance reform in our town ;
after strengthening themselves
by prayer they had gone forth
in tears to entreat and persuade
the liquor' dealers of bur vll
lage to desist from their busi
ness. It gives us pleasure to
record this week the progress
ihey have'made lu the good
The union prayer meetings
nt the AJ. E. and the Presbyte
rian churches have been con
tinued each ' day and evening,
and the visits and prayer at the
saloons have been coulinaed.
0i Thursday morning, as star
ted last week, Mr. Horace Redd
signed the pledce. This was a
victorv accomplished so much
quicker than they expected
that the ladies were greatly
encouraged. . On the morning
of theaame jhy iu addition, to
visiting the liquor saloons they
visited the gambling rooms ol
Alfred Oilman, in T. 13. Davis'
building. Alfred is a contri
bution which the city of Buf
falo has lately made to our
population, i lie was popular
ly known as '-The Spider' and
it is said he has enticed many
of the little flies hereabouts
into bis web. The "Spider"
was sale within his little neat
when the ladies called, but the
door was looked, and they, not
being sure of their game, were
content to leave him after of
fering up a few prayers in the
ball and stairway. They were
not satisfied with this, how
ever, and in the evening they
so stationed their pickets that
it was not five minutes after he
entered his room until they
were aware of the fact The
prayer meeting at the Presby
terian church came, to an ab
rupt conclusion, and the ladies
of that congregation wended
their way Jo the Methodist
church, where after , a short
time spent in prayer they
formed in column aud moved
on Mr. Oilman's works. This
time theyDfound the door un
locked and the Spider at the
table in a game with one of
the young men of our village
They quickly filled the room,
a part of the force occupmg
Wm. Sry'B oyster saloon, where
"a quiet little game , for the
oysters-' was in progress. The
players disposed of their cards
as best they could, and the la
dies opened their meeting, and
continued it for about two
hours, the Spider meanwhile
sitting by his little pile of
"chips" like a martyr at the
stake. He had made sundry
threats of violence and insult
should the ladies call on him,
but he had the good sense not
to attempt to put his threats
in execution. They could get
no promise from him, but on
Friday he was busy selling his
traps, and on Monday morn
ing he shook the dust of oar
village from his feet and de
parted, let as hope forever, or
until he adopts some more con
genial mode of procuring a
livelihood. '.Mr. Sry readily
agreed to allow no more card
playing in his establishment,
said that be knew it was wrong,
and permitted it against his
convictions of right and duty ;
was glad they had come, as he
could now etop it. On their
departure he burned up the
cards and notified those present
that the last game had been
played in his establishment.
' On Saturday Mrs. ' Weisen
berger yielded to the entreat
ies of the committee, and
signed ' the pledge to sell no
more liquors, Patrick O'Eeefe
yielded so much of their re
quest as was contained in the
druggists pledge, and the other
saloons coated telling by the
dram. Saturday -was a dry
time for the old tipplers who
visited Mc Arthur that day, and
some of them who have not
been known to go home aobez
beloreviu twenty years no
doubt astonished their families
by appearing as straight as a
Oa Monday morning Mr.
Jones closed his doors for busi
ness and ouly opened to admit
lhe ladies iuJiheir customary
round of prayer, and proposed
a conditional surrender that
he would sign a pledga to ab
stain from selling for one year,
but ', the ladies, while noting
with pleasure the effect ol
their labors, hold out lor on un
conditional pledge. This leaveu
at the time of writing but one
saloou in McArthur that has
not given some solid , evidence
of their inteution to yield.
This is Shockey's, and even
there we understand dram sel
ling has ceased. The ladies
may well fee! elated at their
success thus far, and encour,
aged to persevere to the end.
The union prayer meetings
at the M. E. and Presbyterian
churches in furtherance of this
cause have grown in numbers
and deal from the beg'innipg,
and the ladies Who visit the sa
loons, though they commenced
with many misgivings, cay that
they never in all 'their lives
enjoyed meetings so well, or
felt that they were doing so
much good and so perfectly
carrying out the will of their
Master Many who never be
fore prayed in public now pray
in the saloons and oiler up
such petitions as have brought
tears to the eyes of their audi
tors. iVe attended the meet
ing at Oilman's gambling sa
loon last Thursday evening,
and have not witnessed so en
thusiastic a religious meeting
in twenty years, or seen a re
ligious congregation where all
seemed to enter into the spirit
of the meeting so earnestly.
The most perfect accord and
good feeling seems to exist be
tween the members' of the dif
ferent congregations, and there
is a large accession to the
ranks of churchgoers. Those
outside of the churches, those
who seldom attend church, in
cl'tffling several of lhe Baloon
keeper?, are becoming regular
attendants. Oa invitation" of
the ministers, the merchants
and business men close their
business houses, and attend
the first hour of the morning
One fact worthy of attention,
and the ladies never lire of re
peating it, the saloon keepers
have treated them most court
eously in every instance and
on every visit. The effect of
this has been to beget confi
dence and respect on both
sides. Said one of fhe ladies
the other day, "We have lound
out these men are worth saving
and we are bound to save
them." While they speak thus
of the saloon keepers, they are
not slow to say that the only
person who has offered them
an insult or treated them with
contempt is one who aspires to
be a leading citizen, and who
wishes to rank himself high
above saloon keepers. They
are disposed though to take it
in becoming meekness, and
pity rather than condemn.
Since the above was in type
we learn that Shockey closed
his bar on Tuesday morning,
bat while refusing to sell yet
refused to give any pledge.
THE END-SO FAS AS THK SALOON
. KEEPERS ARB CONCERNED.
On Tuecday evening a com
mittee representing the Ladies'
Temperance League called on
the three saloon keepers who
had not signed the pledge in
lull, arid obtained from them
their full consent to the follow
ing: We, the undersigned, citi
zens of McArthur, O., aeree to
dispose of our total stock of
liquors at a loss of ten per
cent, upon the wholesale rates,
if such disposition can be made
without any further loss to us,
and upon such disposition be
ing made we will sign the IP
dies pledge not to sell intoxi
cating liquors agaiu.'
We reg.rtJ this as a proposi
tion which ought to and will be
accepted, and the ladies propose
to 6eo what they can do about il.
We believe it will be the judg
ment of our citizens to accept the
proposition, and make good any
, , , . ,. , '
loss pver ana above tnat irDicn
... , !
ine saioon Keepers agree to laxe
upon themselves. If this matter
is to be adjusted amicably und
fairly, and in the spirit in which
the. ladies have conducted the
movement from the first, the pub
lic 'will now strp forward and
share the loss with the saloon
keeper?; for we must acknowl
edge that we have all encouraged
these men to invest 'their money
in this business negatively at
least by permitting it to be car
ried oo peaceably when it could
have been so summarily stopped
by law. An effort will be male
to dispose of the stock to whole
sale druggists at such discount as
can be effected, cifisens will be
called upon to make up 'the bal
ance, and as believe from the free
expression of opinion we have
heard on the subject that there is
no man in; this community who
has taken so little interest in this
movement that he will not -con-tribute
something to see it so hap
pily consummated. .

Wkhn woman of wealth, cul
ture and the most delicate sen ¬
sibilities turn out by scores
to go aud personally implore
the keepers of drinking plaoes
to cease their traffic, when they
are willing to hold religious
meetings at such places, and
that for hour after hour in the
raw open air if necessary, and
when they are willing and de
termined to repeat this day af

their efforts, it means that
something has broke loose,
and that there is to be a shak

The human being probably
doss not exist so hardened as
to bo utterly indifferent to her
good opinion, or unmoved by
her gentle, earnest, persistent

sensiiSve to wnat the pure

daughters of community think
of them. To be totally uncon

within the compass ot human
nature, and this, probablyis the
key to the remarkable success
that crowns the woman's tem
And now, if personal inter
cession and influence may do

men, may it not be equally po

wrestle with intemperance,
may it not have like power to
overcome and banish from so
