PURPOSE OF THE LEAGUE
It Is Fully Set Forth In a Statement Issu?
ed by the Executive Committee.
Not For Total Ab?
Dr. Gordon B. Moore, of Furman Uni?
versity, has accepted the position of su?
perintendent of the Anti-Saloon League,
to which ho was elected on Wednesday
THE POLICY' OF THE ANTI-SALOON
In introducing to the people of Vir?
ginia, Dr. Gordon B. Aloore as spokes?
man for tho Anti-Saloon League, tho
Executive Committee tako this opportu?
nity to stato again tho scope of tho
league's purposes and the methods by
which it Is proposed to carry them otic,
NOT A. CAMPAIGN OF DENUNCIA?
First, let It be said that the leaguo
Is not set for tho abuse of tho men who
aro engaged In the liquor trafile. Alany
of these mon we know and are glad to
call them friends. ' S?me of them began
the liquor business years ago, when the
odium now attaching to It did not exist
This being so,'wholesale denuncletlon of
such mon for not having anticipated tho
moral advance of the public mind us to
the liquor traillo would bo manifestly
unfair. We wish to reason with them,
rather than to denounce them. Such a
course, as many Instances testify, lias
brought tho liquor dealers themselvos
either to remain neutral In a local op?
tion election or to withdraw voluntarily
from the business. Where this occurs,'
it means/ moro than a victory; ?t is dis?
covering a friend In a supposed foo. They
happen to have put their money arid
energy Into a business which an ad?
vancing public conscience now con?
LEAGUE IS NONJPOLITICAL.
The Anti-Saloon Leaguo is neither a po?
litical party nor a total abstinence socie?
ty. While it identifies itself with no
?lo'.itlcal party, it does seek to induco
eaJi person to do what ho can to pro?
mote the cause of temperance In his
own party. Tho League Is lnter-party and
inter-church. It believes that patriotic
mon In all the partios exerting them
seHcs ?n. concert on this Issue can do
what perhaps Is Impossible tu. a sopa
rato party to accomplish. Tho Antl-_i?
loon Leaguo is entirely distinct from the
p-oh'.lvtlon party, however, much we as
""individuali may respect the convictions
of members of that political party. It Is ,
nc-t part es, but men, that the Leiiguo j
seeks to Influence. Our objective is
public opinion, which llos behind par?
ties. The Issue within tho purview of tho
League Is a moral one, It strikes at tho
.saloon ns an Institution. A loading edi?
tor In this Stato recently remarked that
fitj saloon Is nine-tenths of the evil of
tho liquor traffic. That remark singles
out aptly the work of tho Anti-Saloon
As tho League Is non-political, so It Is
not primarily legislativo. It does not wish
tii frame nor force bills in tho General
Assembly. If members of that body do
of their own accord bring forward ?meas?
ures .-elating to temperance, the League
ccns'dois It within its provinco to voico
,.?', sentiment of the people of Virginia
as to that particular bill. In these In
.-inn.-i-j the pressure, If such there oe
is that of tho people rather than tho
League. It i.? In this regard only a ve?
hicle ior the expression of public opinion
upon te'i.?trance matters. Rightly would
tho Legislature resent dictation by any
organisation, no matter how patriotic It
is. bov/ever, bellovod that no legisla
tur Is everse to knowing what the poo?
pio think about every measure upo?
which ho is called to vote.- The vested
Interests of tho liquor trafilo have long'
contrived to gag public opinion as to tem?
perance matters. Hence the need ha?
arisen for an organization to givo full
force to tho popular will in regard to tho
NOT TOTAL ABSTINENCE.
Tho Anti-Saloon League does not doal
with tho subject of total abstinence, be?
lieving that such phases of tho tempor?
aneo question can bo best handled by tho
various churches. Wttillo disclaiming any
attempt to Interfere with tho personal
liberty of any man, Uio league insists
that tho saloon as a legalized institu?
tion Is a social menace; that It breeds
crime; that it is a source of political cor?
ruption; that It tonds to undermlno tho
home, tho school and all Industries, and
that no citizen's liberty is restricted when
such a flagrant form of temptation Is
removed from tho thorougihfaro. The
saloon has taken refuge under tho sover?
eignty of tho Stato of Virginia. From
this shelter tho league souks to dislodge
CONSERVATIVE TO THE CORE.
Tho Anti-Saloon League is defined by
two words?unity and sanity. It seeks to
unite all peoplo who favor temporaneo
reform upon a conservativo, safe and
feasible plan of action, It abhors fanat?
icism, Tho longue Is tho clearing house
of all temporanea agenclos, boiu olvlo nnd
Christian. It deslros to eliminato their
differences und unito their Identities Into
a cablo of enduring strength. The league
does not undertake to onforca laws, but
It strives to creato a sentiment that will
back up offlcors In enforcing tho lawe.
EDUCATION RATHER THAN AGITA
The league has no crotchets, no cure-all,
no short cut to reform. It recognizes that
tho saloon Is dooply Imbedded In the eco?
nomic, soclul and political habit of our
people, and that it can be rooted out only
by slowly working a change In that hab?
it. The hope of dual success In . this,
na In ull proper movements, Is based upon
an appeal to the publia conscience, Wihlle
l?gislation can do much, It cannot do all.
As Woodrow Wilson says: "Law grows
with tho growth of tho community. It
cannot outrun tho conscience of tho com?
munity and ha real; It cannot outlast Its
Judgments and retain Its force. It mir?
rors social advance. If It anticipate tho
development of the public thought, It
must wait until tho common Judgment
nnd conscience grow up to Us standards
before it can have Ufo; If It lag behind
the common Judgment and conscience, It
