THINK WELL, THEN ACT.
The more we study political
conditions the more are we con
vinced of the importance of vot
ers thinking well before casting
their votes for Representatives.
It often happens that a candidate
appeals for votes when he has
nothing but a lip service to offer,
and his principal motive in being
a candidate is to soothe tl- ,it
ical scabs brought on from dis
appointment. Such a candidate
will make any promise his tongue
can deliver, in order to deceive
the voter into placing him in a
position where he might get his
revenge upon those whom he
holds responsible for the dis
turbed condition of his mind.
The most effective work done
in the General Assembly is done
by men who are not endowed
with speech-making: in fact, the
speech-makers accomplish little
work and cause a great deal of
valuable time to be lost: they are
very expensive luxuries. The
kind of a man needed in legislat
ive work is one who in com
mittee has the confidence of
his fellow-committeemen: such a
one may not be able to open his
mouth in behalf of a measure be
fore the legislative body, yet the
fact that he favors or is opposed
has more weight than a dozen
We therefore urge upon the
vo'ters to not allow themselves
misled by oily-tongued politi
cians into the belief that it is
necessary to send men to the
Legislature who can tell moss
covered jokes, or pump out a
lot of hot wind. We are not so
liciting votes for any particular
man or set of men, we are only
urging against the selecting of
men who have grudges to grat
ify, and, to accomplish their pur
pose they will block and hinder
those who have an ambition to
be of help to the people.
When the present. Senator was
sworn into office Ja~nuary, 1899,
the board of equalization had al
ready fixed the property assess
ment, which stands for four
years, and we found the county
burdened with a debt of nearly
$3,000, and a threat being made
of a suit, unless some provision
was made to pay the outstanding
claims: had the holders of claims
obtained jaidgments, the taxpay
ers would have been further bur
dened with interest at tne rate of
8 per cent. It was decided by
the delegation as a plain busi
ness propcsition, that it would be
to the people's interests to in
crease the levy three-fourths of
a mill which made the levy 13
mills. This experiment was
tried, and as a result, the debts
of the county were all paid, and
at the session of 1900 the levy
on tile same valuation of prop
er-ty was brought down one mill,
thus making it one-fourth of a
mill less than when we went into
office, and a large debt removed,
and one mill less than last year.
If the delegation elected this
year will work in harmony with
the Senator, our word for it, an
other mill and. may be two mills
will come off at the coming ses
sion. All that we ask is a dele
g-ation to work harmoniously as
far as county allairs are conc-ern
ed, and unless such a delegation
is sent, we repeat that which we
have heretofore said, "Clar-endon
would be better off with no rep
resentation at all." The p~eople
of Clarendon know the men who
have already announced their
candidacy. and they also know
thle mien who will announce later,
for we take it that no man in this
countyv would have the face to
bc-ome a candidate for so im
portant a place unless he was
known to tihe people. We would
not presume to say to the voter
that he shall cote for this or that
man, but as a citizen engaged in
a public wor-k, we have a right
kimd of men the voter shall vote
for: when we have given our
views on the subject, then it is
for the voter to judge whether
or not we are right, and if we
are right, then it is his duty, to
himself and to his county, to vote
against any man, even a personal
friend, if that man does not rep
resent his views on a sp1ecial is
sue, or if that man,1. in his opin
ion, will block or linder the
work of other mIIemb1I)ers of the
d iegation wiln it comes to mat
te .s of county interest.
'I here is another matter which
mligih be of concern at this time,
time pmatter of combinations, the
desire to ,ontrol all branches of
business: as yet this condition is
in its infancy, but if the people
sit idly by, and by their indiffer
ance permit the leeches who are
now by conbined power sucking
the life blood out of business in
terests, the day is not far from
us, when they will lay hold on
the body politic and bleed it to
death. What if the combines
were to secure the election of
their satalites to the legislature,
and they in turn,were to appoint
the tools of the combines on the
board of county commissioners,
cannot anybody see where the
county in a short while, could be
mulct in debt, and instead of its
paper being worth 100 cents on
the dollar it would be selling for
50 cents, and an increase in the
tax levy would be necessary to
pay the claims in the hands of
the discounters? The taxpayers
are interested in this matter and
it behooves them to watch and
guard against the county falling
a prey into the hands of men who
are gradually trying to control
everything, and where they can't
control, they put their combined
wits and money together to crush.
This is no dream, nor is it a play
upon the imagination, but it is a
plain and an unvarnished truth,
and we unhesitatingly say that
unless the people beware of the
oily promises of the tempter,
they will, when too late, realize
themselves in the coils of greed
and their piteous cries will be
scoffed at, and mocked at, just as
the imps of hell scoff and mock
with derisive sneers, the down
fall of innocence.
We caution our friends to be on
the lookout, andi look well into
the candidacy of men who will
stand for the legislature. Vote
for no man who you believe,
"totes" a political knife up his
sleeve to plunge into the career
of the man he holds responsible
for his political downfall. Some
men who are determined upon
the destruction of an adversary
will make the fairest of promises
in order to accomplish their pur
poses, and once in, they will re
sort to the vilest methods, if
necessary, to gratify their hel
lish spleen. We have already
frustrated one plan of the enemy
to do us injury, and it has had
the effect of making us the more
vigilent, it has caused us tc
watch and guard our interests,
as if from the midnight thief,
and more so: for if the thief robs
us of our little, a few dollars will
replenish us, but if robbed of
our character that has taken a
lifetime to build, we will be left
We have been in public life
many years, and while our views
have not always met the ap~pro
val of some, no man, not even
those whom we fought fiercely
when things political were warm,
ever charged us with deception.
We have always endeavored tc
be open and candid, and when
we espouse a cause we do sc
open and above board, single
handed and alone, without the
aid and counsel of men who are
supposed to be engaged in a
higher calling. We will, at the
proper time, cull from the jour
nals of the Senate a true account
of our stewar-dship and leave it
with the honest voter to say
whether or not we have made a
"good and faithful servant," and
if we can succeed in obtaining
his approval, the vituperation,
and deception of our enemies will
have as much effect as the bark
ing of curs at a bright moon.

"CHRIST AT THE POLLS" vs. CHRIST AT
THE MARRIAGE FEAST.
A few weeks ago there ap
peared in the Christian Advocate
an article on prohibition which
was replied to by Dr. L. W. Net
ties of Fcreston. The Advo
cates article has become mis
placed, but we herewith give our
readers Doctor Nettles' article
from The Advocate:
Mu. EDITOR: In The Advocate
of the 7th inst., an appeal is
made to Christians to vote for
"prohibition" as against "anti
prohibition." under the headline,
"Christ at the Polls." After
several imaginative and senti
mental utterances, the writer de
cides unequivocally that Christ
would vote for prohibition, and
on his assumed conclusion ex
horts all CL ristians to go and do
I take occasion to say just here
that I am a reader of The Advo
cate, and that it is my desire
and "highest aspiration" to do
right as well as vote right: that
I am for temperance first, last
and all the time: but as for "pro
hibition," as voiced by the arti
cle referred to, is concerned, I
am left to be guided as to my ac
tion in the matter either by my
surmises, or allow my judgment
to be controlled by an inflamed
sentiment, wrought up, not by
the results of legitimate use, but
by the effects of the abuse of al
Imagination is a fine field for
sentiment and spiritual revelry;
but when we are dealing with
stubborn, disagreeable and un
compromising realities, it is far
better to confine ourselves to the
realm of sense.
If we really wish to act Christ
like, we can unquestionably for
mulate better rules for our guid
ance by considering what he ac
tually did while living in Pales
tine than by trying to imagine
what he would do "at the polls."
The article referred to makes
"Prohibition" and "Anti-Prohi
bition" the "real issues at the
I take it that "prohibition"
means (if it means anything more
than the dispensary), the prohi
bition of the manufacture, sale
and use of wine and alcoholic
liquors in toto, and "anti-prohi
bition," so-called, means the re
striction of the same. That is to
say, the "real issues" at the next
election, where Christians are
called on to vote like Christ, will
be "prohibition" on the one side,
and "restriction" on the other.
The question then is, and I ask
it reverently, would Christ vote
for "prohibition" or- "restric
Let his record in Palestine an
swer the question.
Christ changes not as to his
moral, social or political opin
ions. What he considered right
when he lived in Palestine is
right today, and what lhe adjudg
ed wrong then is wrong now. If
lie did right then to render unto
Cesar the things that were Cos
ar's, and pay his poll tax, he
would do the same today. If his
decision, that the Sabbath was
made for man and not man for
the Sabbath was correct then, it
is correct still. If he did right
and violated no law when lie
miade wine for the marriage
feast, it is not wrong now; and
who would dare to say that
Christ would not do now what he
did then, thereby admitting that
what he did then was wrong.
St. Luke, chapter 22, verse 17,
records this fact: "And he took
the cup and gave thanks, and
said, Take this and divide it
among yourselves." Now, I ask
in all sincerity, if Christ was so
profoundly impressed with the
great importance of "prohibi
tion," as Christians are called
upon to imagine, why did he al
low it to be on the table where
he partook of his last, sad sup
per? If he considered the use
of wine so detrimental to the
success "of his redeeming and
saving work," could he not-yea,
would he not - have selected
some other liquid (the abuse of
which was not so easy) with
which Christians should conm
memorate his meritorious suffer
ings and death until lie com~es
If Christ was such a great pro
hibitionist, why was the first
great public exhibition of his
miraculous power shown in mak
ing wine, and almost with his
expiring breath, recommending
its use to future generations.
" 'Tis passing strange" that in
this wild and furious age, the
followers of Christ have made
such advances in the divine life
that they are able to criticise
him for making and recognizing
the use of wine-as well as cen
suring Paul for sanctioning its
use, by recommending a little for
the stomach's sake and other in
Christ is God, and whatsoever
God does is right. Christ's life
was to be an example for all gen
erations-a rule and guide of
their lives. He was no law vio
lator. He obeyed and taught
obedience to law. Christ recog
nized right and right alone. He
scorned those who strained at
gnats anid swallowed camels. He
knew, as only God could know,

that men, oft' times women, too,
drank to excess, not only in his
own day, but long years before
his advent; he also knew that,
through future ages, perhaps
until time should be no more,
some would continue to make
brutes of themselves by getting
drunk-yet, notwithstanding all
this knowledge of past, present
and future, he deliberately made
wine for a festive occasion and
ordered it to be handed to the
governor of the feast.
Did Christ do wrong? Was he
ignorant of the fact that future
generations would read the sa
cred record! Had he never read
of Noah and his vineyard? Had
he never heard of Solomon's ad
monition, "Look not upon the
wine when it is red?" Had Ha
bakkuk's terrible exclamation
never sounded in his ear, -Woe
unto him that giveth his neigh
bor drink'" Did he, by making
wine unconsciously and igno
rantly encourage, instead of
"saving the people from the
drink appetite?" "Down forever
with the impious thought."
The great trouble, I imagine,
with Christians is that they are
not sufficiently Christlike to rec
ognize the use of a thing and at
the same time condemn its abuse.
The Christian motto as to all
things useful to man should be,
"Use, but not abuse."
My contention is that neither
Christ, Paul nor the Bible pro
hibit the manufacture or use of
wine or strong drink; but they
all, with one accord, in unmis
takable language, condemn in
temperance; that is to say: drink
ing to excess or getting drunk.
Christ could not make men do
right and keep them from ex
cesses. not only in wine, but in
all sensuality-Christians need
not expect to do more. They
cannot make men quit drinking,
but if they are honest and tem
perate themselves, they may
persuade others to be like-mind
ed. Christ always persuaded,

Christians may be able to re
strict the manufacture, use and
traffic of wine and strong drink

temperate lives, but let them
beware lest they lose what they

nor the Bible enjoins-prohibit

PROHIBITION IN MAINE.
The Democrats Call for Enforcement and Re
submission of the Law.
The platform adopted by the
Maine Democratic State Conven
tion at its session in Lewiston on
Wednesday, July 11, contains the
following respecting the State
prohibitory liquor law and its
"For nearly half a century we have
had a statutory law. prohibiting the
manufacture, sale and use of intoxicat
ing liquors. For nearly half that time
it has been embodied in the State con
stitution. Since it was first enacted
scores of amendments. each more strin
gent and the penalties more severe than
those preceding it, have been passed.
-For nearly twenty years the alleged
enforcement of the prohibitory law has
been growing more and more lax, until
today in nearly every city in the State
and many of the larger towns, there are
regularly established hars a-l saloons
where liquors are sold in open. flagrant
violation of the constitution and statu
tory law. Nearly every hotel. many
restaurants. hundreds of so-called drug
stores and unnumbered secret saloons
and bar-rooms in the cities sell without
restriction. save an occasional seizure
and fine for political purposes.
"For the present shameful. disgust
ing condition of affairs in relation to
the prohibitory law, the Republican
leaders and their supporters are solely
responsible. Today in many parts of
the State we are having all the evils of
'free rum,' and none of the redeeming
features of a license law.
"For years the prohibitory law has
been a political foot ball. Its hypocrit
ical enforcement has been used to con
trol the liquor vote, to increase the in
come of perjured officials and to swell
the corruption fund for campaign pur
poses. Through its instrumentality, the
party in power has influenced juries,
corrupted officials sworn to enforce the
law: debauched voters, deceived the
advocates of temperance, betrayed the
cause which it professed to support,
creating contempt and a disregard for
all laws, and has made the good name of
the State a byword and reproach wher
ever it is known.
"We maintain that the Republican
party in Maine is under the practical
control of a ring which has finally be
