The two wmrH LKH'OIl INTER-ESTS,
form a sentence coined and
promulgated by Vankce fukirs and
'.'rafters of tho
stripe." Thi used as
it s in America, forms a slogan for
the use ol rascality when urging fools
to vote for "prohibition." And not
.satisfied with one audacious crime,
they commit another by forging the
name of Christ to their counterfeit.
Christ turned water into wine, it is
so rccordod in scripture.
Christ partook of a banauot, gi7cn
to Him by a "publican" (saloonkeeper),
it i.i so recorded in jcripturc.
There is the evidence!
Arc not tliee infamous prohibition
liars and hypocrites "blaspheming"
the name of Christ? The
"sentence" "LIQUOR INTERESTS,"
at. used by prohi fnk'rs and
grafters, is a misnomer; or, in other
words, a ialsifieation. We never
hear these contemptible falsifiers
talk about the "Bread Interest," or
the "Meat Interest," or the "Vegetable
Interest," and yet these three
interests are essential allies, used at
tho dining table in conjunction with
each other in all "Christian countries."
It is uot a "moral wave" that is
sweeping the country in tho namo of
"prohibition": it is the "wave of
hypocrisy prostituting the banner
of Christ. Would to God there was
a "moral wave"; wo need it bad
enough in order to check the
hypocrisy of "piohibition,"
There are many Christian preachers,
thank God, who arc standing trno to
he "Christian doctrine," which is
"tomporanco, not "prohibition."

This man, it is plain to see is advocating
or championing the whisky
interests for the money that is in it
and nof for the good of the laboring
people he claims to represent. Even
the laboring people do not bolicvo as
he claims too or chore would not be
a dry county where strong labor
organizations exist. He has been
raised up to use the word "scab"
untill he knows nothing else and very
little of that. If he was a gentleman
or had ever been, ho would have
never reprinted such rot. If tho
people who advocate tho extermination
of the liquor tariff arc hypoerits,
they are in a large majority and will
never burn in tho everlasting hell,
that is as surely prepared for his
type as his filthy tongue is not fit to
be heard even by 'ho ass or the ox.
A Knur all rnn find " k nn' ie
that he is trying to teach the proud
people of Kentucky the dcfhition of
"scab" and how to drink liquor.
One thing for sure, is, that the laboring
people do not agree with him
and tho sooner they get rid of all
such grafters the better for them.
The following is another of his
PROHIBITION AS A BREEDER OF RANK
The following story is told by an
Episcopal Clergyman, in the Baltimore
Labor - Trades August 21st,
1!K)!I. which shows the effect of prohibition
as a breeder of rank hypocrisy:
About four years ago, shortly
after a certain towu on Long Island
went "dry", a hotel keeper in this
town received a letter from a wholesale
whisky concern in Kentucky,
reading something like this: "Will
you kindly send us the namci of any
persons in your town who, you think,
might be likely to purchase wet
goods, Wc have a very fino brand
of whisky (naming the brand) that
we should like to introduce in your
town. We shall be glad to extend
to you the usual courtesy of 10 per
cent, commission on all sales that wc
mav make through the list you send
us." Well, tho hotel man thought
he would have a little fun, and so ho
made a list of about H5 of the most
rabid prohibitionists in tho place nnd
sent the list to the whisky firm. He
thought it would be a fine joke on
the prohibitionists to havo thorn deluged
with whisky circulars. And it
turned out to be a better joko than
ho thought. For, at the ond of three
months ho received a letter from the
whisky peoplo thanking him for
what ho had done and inelosing a
check for $27.00 commission. This
story throws light on the curious
circumstances already referred to,
that as tho prohibition movement
spreads, the consumption of liquor
Now if there be one word of truth
in tho above why do those scoundrels
object to prohibition? Every timo
you hear a man argue this you know
just how much of it to believe It

nearly opposite Shawnoctown, 111,
where he was wounded l n tho
haol and troops routed, swimming y
the lake and throwing their guns
away, some of them being fished
from the Jake cvon to the present
