Yes, it's a sweet combination to
be a euperinteiKieut of a Sunday
school and the superintendent of a
distillery at the same time.
Col. I'epj r has lately published
how his own brother got him into
trouble by drinking the whisky

There is only one other class of
business houses in the world, that
is eo damnable as a Lexington
distillery, and that is a shebang
like that r in t Presbyterian church
that puts a distiller's hireling at
the head of a Sunday-school to let
them absorb his liquor traffic ideas

aside from bis busi-
neas, is a nice man, and so is Col.
Pepper; and, for that matter, 60
was Jesse James. But I would,
forty to one, rather see Col. Pep
per in the pulpit of the First Pres
byterian church, aud a man at the
head of the Sunday-school, who,
by precept aud example, would
teach the boys of Lexington the
danger of whisky than to have it
as it is now. If Col. Pepjxr were
in the pulp:t there would not be
any hypocrisy in 'him, and the
people he would talk to would be
old enough to look out for them
selves. But Bro Pew has the boys
just at the time of life to make an
impression on them.
The literary genius that has
made me a bloated bond holder
as editor of the Blade, came very
uear being diverted in my early
life into the making of cutting
My first Sunday-school teacher

That First Presbyterian church,
with a distillery superintendent at
the head of its Sunday-school, is
a worse institution than Col. Pep
The distillery does its business
open and above board. It deals
-Tith fu'I grown men, and nobody
is fooled by it. Col. Pepper, in
his late published letter about his
brother, has been candid enough
to intimate 10 us pretty plainly
that he is too smart to drink his
Bro. Pew however xs an honest
man can not dare to teach the
boys in his Sunday -school that
they ought no, to drink whisky.
He has no right to take Col.
Pepper's money for c inducting
his distillery and then try to break
down the Colonel's business, un
derhaiidcdly by teaching the boys
that they ought not to drink the
Colonel's whisky. And I will bet
he would not dare to teach those
loys that they oughi not to drink
anybody's whisky. It would take
a cheek ljke a government mule
for him to do so, and Col. Peper
ought to fire him as high as a
rocket it Bro. Pew says a word
against whisky drinking.
If Bro. Pew is a consistent man,
and a loud prayer, he ought, in hi
closet and publicly, to ask God to
help him to make good whisky
and a heap of it, and help Bro.
Pepper to sell it. No Christian
man ought to g. t his living at the
hands of another man un'ess he is
willing to ask God to bless that
mail in his business.
It is sad to think how the
youths of our land are being sys
tematically educated in whisky
drinking, but so far as the
churches arc concerned I do not
care a snap for them.

eudoiscment by me; except I can
not make claim that I have "gone

The attitude of the so-called

1 could not be reconciled in my
conscience while I remained iu
the church, after 1 saw how com
pletely subsi rvicnt it. was to the
liquor license party.
To remain iu that organization
and ive it my moral and material
support was an endorsement of its
attitude to the "gigantic crime of
crimes;'' besides I saw that I was
clearly, to that extent of my
ability ami councc' ion,erpetuaiiig
that curse which I was laboring to
I know I am often told by
some who are superficial in
thought ami investigat'on, that I
could have held my relation with
the church and yet be free from
the responsibility of what others
of the members did, aud that I
ought to 6tay in the church and
help purify it, etc.
Christ had such logic presented
to him, but he said he must build
anew from the foundation, aud
that to have gone into the Jewish
church would have involved him !
iu the tins of that church, and the.
perpetuations thereof. Did youj
evtr think of the result if every i
Prohibition man and womarrj
should on this great iss'ic, step
out of the church aud pour the,
vast volume of their money which i
they now give to that organiza-;
tion into Prohibition channels? "'
Alou the whole Hue I find '
many Prohibs who are about to
step out and up, from the liquor
Earty church. Such a step would
e followed by a progress to the
Prohibition party such as has not
been seen since its organization.
I believe we will make but little
progress in many years unless we
go forward from the church.
Did you ever think ot Moses
and the history of the Israelites?
The North wing and the South
wing of the M. E. church sep
arate -n the question of slavery.
TbiB a time iu the history
of organizations when decent peo
ple must separate from them; and
when corrupt people will. There
is no greater safeguard to any in
stitution against the approach of
criminals than to keep the moral
standard of that institution high
above this class.
ine cnurcn will never rise
above the controlling influence of
the dominant political parties, anfl
the former will adopt the same
corrupt methqds to live as do the
latter. See our churches practi
cally endorsing the license system
the same as does the liqnor license
Some will point me to the
strong anti-license resolutions
adopted by the different church
conferences, as some arguments
against my position, but to onset,
1 ask bow do vou vote: Unless
the resolution is an indication of
what you will, do or will not do at
the ballot-box, vou will make
yourselves the greatest frauds by
offering and adopting such reso
lutions Any way you can fix it
the church is the tail to the liquor
license party kite; and dear
brother work shoulder to shoulder
with me to educate the people fo
have no affiliation with the un
Ibe Prohibition partv and the
W. C. T. U. are a good enough
and safe enough home for me for
the present. I send you a few
copies of ray printed views which
entertain ot the so-called Chris
D. W. Granger.
Them's my sentiments, as the
old man said ot the Lord's prayer.
1 here s good religion, good
politics and good business in what
that New York brother says,
W e rrohibs have settled to our
satisfaction atleast, that Prohibi
tion is right, and therefore any
church that opposes it must be
wrong, and we should act accor
dingly. Tire icbolutioiis:pas&ed bv
the churches in favor of Prohibi
tion are exactly Jike the declara
tions of the Republican party on
They pass resolutions against
the liquor traffic and the very
people who draft the resolutions
intend at the time to vote for
It is a very easy matter to dem
onstrate that the church is the
enemy of Prohibition. There are
5,200,000 churche member voters
in the United States; aud only
250,000 all total who vote forj
Prohibition, and all the rest vote
In other words when one
church member votes against the
liquor traffic there are twenty
church members who vote for it.
When a man gives twenty-one
cents to the church, twenty cents
of it go to keeping up the liquor
traffic, and one cent goes toward
putting it down. A Prohibi
tionist who gives anything to the
support of the church furnishes a
stick to break h's own head.
If you do not think this is a
one sided transaction just try the
experiment of asking any church
to raise money to help the Prohi
bition party. They will raise
money to build fine churches and
pay big salaries to fancy preachers,
and buy them gold headed canes
and watches, or to send them to
the sea shore or Europe or Pal
estine or the devil; but you ask
any one of your churches to make
an aproppriation to assist the Pro
hibition party to save the women
and children from all the horrors
of the liquor traffic, and they will
laugh at you.
If the Prohibitionists iu every
state would give no more to any
church and give all to the Prohi
bition party that they have beeu
giving to the churches, we would
have a fund that would be ample
for all our wants for Prohibition
Eurpose8, and if anything would
ring the churcher to their senses
1 believe another "irrepressible
conflict" has begun, anil that it
will end iu, war just like the sla
very question did. Slavery was
no infamy at all compared with
the liquor traffic. It only en
slaved the bodies of men aud
women and children, but it had
many redeeming features.
But theroJsnotone single pali
ating feature in the liquor traffic.
While we are as weak numeri
cally as we now are we will have
to submit to the liquor powers, but
after a while when the Prohibi
tionists get stronger, in certain lo
calities they may resist by force
the locating of saloons in their
midst which have gotten their
licenses, and it will begia like the
war against slavery did in Kansas
and at Harpers Uerry.
W ives and mothers and sisters
will incite men to arms to save
their husbands and sons and
brothers. The country is full of
good woman who are outraged
aud indignant beyond expression
at the contemptible cowardice of
the men who encourage the liquor
Women lead the men in the
French Revolution, . and twice
lately in Missouri the women
have marched on saloons and bat
tered down their doors with axes,
and destroyed their contents and
fixtures, and the courts did not
They will do it again some
where sometime, and some big
bull headed saloon-keeper will
shoot some of them, and then we
will have it. The decent people
will be brought to their senses,
and the saloon-keepers will have
to get away. And when once the
break is made the people will go
for the breweries and distilleries
as'they did for the old Bastile.
I hope there will never be a
necessity for it and that the liquor
may be put down peaceably, but
another war would be better than
what we now have. The four
years of war that did away with
slavery were better than slavery,
and the people it killed and the
misery it created were nothing
compared to what the liquor traf
fic is doing.
All over America the Prohibi
tionists are indignant against the
churches and calling on all good
people to get out ot them, just as
the Abolitionists did before the
You will hear men laugh and
ridicule such an idea as I am sug
gesting, but I heard them laugh
that same way before the war,
and amuse themselves at the idea
that the slaves would ever be freed.
They killed Lovejoy in Illinois,
and hung John brown in Virginia,
but it did not stop the Abolition
ists. The liquor men have
already killed three Prohibitionists
and thrown eggs and stones into
crowds of ladies at the poUs.
The Prohibitionists will never
forget that, and .it will make
brave women want to vote.
The liquor traffic has to go;
peaceably if possible, but other
wise if necessary.
Ho got the Wrong Mary.

pure and irreverent way in which
you speak of Jesus Christ. In

wondered why Lew Wallace did

Christ with Mary Magdalene. In
still another issue you said you
did not believe that the birth of
Jesus was owing to a liaison of
God with a woman.
Now if you have no regard for
the Christian religion have some
respect for the feelings of those
who look upon Jesus Christ as the
Savior of mankind.
