was a sincere and consistent prohibition

Irrepirably damage the cause In Knna,

"Mr. Vresidpnt1 I totiRrtlulale jou Upon
the larg-p number thnt have gathered here
mi our national nnnlvernry to take coun

nnd I thank vml, .Mr President, for jour
kind Invitation lo appear before this body
nnd express my views, which I will very
"There Is one fffllure of the question up
on which we nil nrep, and that Is the ter
rible evils growing out of the Use of In
toxloatlng liquors Thev nro too familiar
to us to need nnv description, or to re
quire thnt nnv Mine should be consumed In
their discussion No towtuo can exnKger
nte, no pen can portray the misery nnd tho
suffering which follow from Intemperance.
Every village has its heartbroken wives
and lis worse than oiphati children. We
nre all familiar with the sad sight or ruined
homes an I broken hearts. The iiblet In
tellects linvv been dimmed: the brightest
hopes have bepii blastp.1; the happiest
homes hive been rendered desolate by
this terrlbln evil, and the question that
confronts us to-day Js ns to the best menus
to be employed to duco thee evils and,
If possible, entirely nblllente them. There
can be no nobler, grander work to be cn
Riged In than the work of stalng the
ravnges of Intemperance, of bringing again
sunshine nnd Jov lo the darkened home,
of soothing tho widow's woe nnd drvlng the
orphan's tear It l.s in undertaking of
great moment. The dlllleultles surround
ing It are not cnslly overcome. The one
end we nil desire Is to restrict the ue of
Intoxicating liquors to the lowest possible
limit, and as far ns possible binlsh them
forever from our Rt ite.
All Aetll l I'lillillttnii.
"The question confronting us to-day Is
not a thvorv : It Is nn aetuil condition. If
I hid the power I would binlsh from the
world nil Intoxicating liquors, but I have
not thu power and the question for me to
decide Is hon call I best direct mi efforts
to diminish their ue It we could control
the appetites of men. It would be a very
easy matter to leform them Whntever
tends to elevate and rellne men, whatever
leads theni to higher and purer assocl i
tlons, helps to draw them away from the
evil inlluences of appetite, and strengthens
nd ennobles them Our churches, our
schools, our public libraries, are all grind
helps In lifting men above the temptations
that assail them And the foundation must
be laid, the grand work comnii need. In
our churches and our school" Whit we
should aim to do to-day Is to consider the
best way to advance the ciuse of tem
perance, and I trust that by a calm and
dlspisslonato dlscuMon of the question we
may at least come nearer together upon
some common bisls.
Total Abstinent., (lie Olill afe Plan.
"Uellevlnp, .us I do, th it the only safety
for tho individual Is In total abstinence
from the Use of Intoxicating liquor. I feel
that he who exerts the most influence in
lifting others up. in Inducing them to Join
the- ranks of totil alutlndiee, Is doing
most In advancing the temperance cause
'The great question which Is aglt.ttlug
the civilized world to-day Is whit legist i
Hon Is best adapted to promote this end.
While I do not believe that any pirtlcular
fonn of legislation Is adapted to all condi
tions, and would be advisable In nil places,
I am llrmly convinced that for this state,
undei Its present conditions, with Its pres
ent .idvanccd Ideas upon the temperanco
question, thnt prohibitory laws are the
wksest and best.
