the Cincinnati inquirer for $1.00.
That the Blade has made more
Prohibition voters you know be
cause I have printed their names
in the Blade to that effect.
Leziugton is the citadel of the
whisky influence of the world to
day. I do not say it as any boast,
but I say it because the business
interest of the Prohibition party
make it advisable that I should
do, and I come as near thanking
God for it as I ever do for any
thing:, but the Spartan handful of
Prohibitionists who have stood by
the Blade, have the liquor traffic
in Lexington on the nip now,
and are simply bound to down it,
if the Prohibition party from all
over the United States but princi
pally trom Kentucky, help me
through the Blade, to say what
these Lexington Prohibitionists
want me to say.
It's a mighty good sign that we
are getting in our work when you
see these old whisky voting poll
ticians wanting to kill me, and
the Lexington Press and the Lex
ington Transcript trying their
level best to instigate thein to do
so. Killing me would not set
Prohibition back any, but men
would rise np to champion my
cause, just as the fact that the
saloon-keepers killed Haddock
and Gambrell inspires me to talk
as I do.
So far as the racket about my
religion is concerned, I have on
my side such men as McGarvey
and Graham and Loos all of the
theological department of Ken
tucky University, and Rev. Dr.
Felix of the Baptist church of this
city. That's glory enough for me

Gentlemen, I doubt if the Lord has
appointed the editor of the "Voice"
as the judge of the church, which
position be has assumed. You may
think you can stand it to allow your
name to continue to be associated
with such a sheet. I consider "The
Voice" so wicked, immoral and in
decent that no financial or any other
consideration would induce me
to allow it to come in
