Doubtless thcro is not a missionary
in this toiritory but who has keonly
felt tho indifterenco of tho peoplo in
regard to tho blighting influence of
tho saloon. This is caused mostly I
bcliuAO fioin tho fnut that tho saloon
man is among the first to begin business
in a now community. Ho is tecog
nized ns i useful pioneer o en by people
who do not pationize his bar. But he
has tho only place of public resort in
the community, so ho gets hold of tin
pioneer people as being ono of thoso
who have braved the dangers of pioneer
life, and they ery often elect him to
places of public honor and trust.
So when the zealous missionary
raises his oico against tho saloon man
and his business he finds that tho better
class of peoplo do net always sympa
thize with him. They sa-, "The
saloon man camo and helped us when
wo were few in number, and now wo
do not feel like turning agiinst him."
.The saloouist uses this against tho
missionary, and in fat or of himself and
his business. So, ery often wo fmd
oui selves standing nlono on tho subject
"Temperance Reform," and and our
plans a. id woik is thwaited by the
saloonist's hold upon tho people.
Hoofer, the battle beUcen tho
saloon and tho church is on, and the
people are beginning to seo that the
saloouist is their enemy instead of their
fuend I am glad to say that the
tempeianco peoplo hae made much
progress in this tenitory in tho last
Tho temperance people aro composed
almost entirely of the chiisti m people.
The W 0. T U and the I. 0 (J T
are auxilmies of the Christian climcli
Clnist is the ledeemei from ititempei
nncu as well as from eeiy oJursin,
and every attempt at temperance ie
foim, whether by total abstainence
pledges, or political measures, if not in
harmony with tho Christian faith and
tho Christian religion, it. is doomed to
ineitable failure. Therefore 1 beliete
it tho duty of every Christian to pray,
work, and ote for the overthrow of
tho American saloon.
The saloon men control the legisla
tion of this territory, and they see to
it, that theio aro no laws mado that
will interfero with their business.
From the stump in tho last campaign I
hrard a so called political leformer
draw a; cry daik word picture in ro
gaid to tho financial condition of this
territory. Ifo said that tho territory
was in debt three million dollars and
that each year the debt was increasing
and declared that it was only a question
of a few years when tho territory
would bo owned and contiollecl by its
creditors, that uuless the 'people
adopted his plan of reform their chil
dren would riso up and curso Ihemfor
putting this great debt on them without
their knowledge or consent, and all was
dai knees and despair and ho farther
stated that the only way he saw for
tho peoplo to pay this debt, was either
to vote his ticket or else just stop eating
and sao tho money they were spend
ing for food and appty it on this terii
I wanted to say to that audienco that
I belioed thcro was a bettor way than
cither plan he had proposed. Wo had
no assurance that liU party would give
any more relief than tho party that
hadjbeon in power. Had I been given
tho oppoitunity I would have said that
it was not necessary for oven one per
son to do without a single meal, but if
the peoplo of this territory would quit
drinking intoxicating liquors for one
year, they could pay the territorial
debt and have fifty-six thousand dollais
lelt, for tho pnoplo spend annually
thn e million, fifty six thousand dollars
for intoxicating drinks. '
Iho saloon can be put down by tho
peoplo of this tenitoiyif they will
unite in their efforts against it, and
when tho people are educated up to tho
place hero they will bo convinced
that tho saloon is a financial burden
to them and that it is always againsc
tho best interests of the people, thoy
will arise from their sleep of indifler
enco and vote tho saloon out. J bo
Itevotho work of educating 'tho peoplo
along these lines is very largely in the
hands of tho pastors of the Christian
churches of thU territory. Au old
Roman soldier who had fought, bled,
and almost died for his country stood
on tho corner of tho streets of Rome,
ono festal day, as tho.Romnn soldiers
camo marching home. He was too
lovod Romo just as much as ho overdid,
in faot his lovo for Ilia country had
grown with his ago so much that now
his entire thought was for tho welfare
of Rome. Tho procession was led by
men of his own ago who wcro not bo
feeble, their breasts wero adorned with
many medals, and their brows wero
marked with many scars mute wit
nesses of thoir courage on many a battle
field. As they marched by tho old man
thoy wero singing aud tho ehorus of
their song was, "Wo have been strong,
we have been strong. " The old man's
countcnanco fell as ho said: "Yes, I
know you havo been strong, but your
strength is gone, What, 0 what, will
bcoomo of Rome?" Just then tho
young men and middle-aged men camo
marching along The sight of these
stalwart men was an inspiration, they
wore in tho prime of their manhood
and strength, they wero singing and
their chorus was: "Wo oro strong. We
nre strong." The old man's countcn
anco fell again as ho said, "Yes I know
you are strong, but your strength will
soon fail. "Then, 0 Then, what will
become of Romel" Just thon tho bovj
camo marching by and thoy too weio
singing, and tho chorus of their song
was, "We will be strong, Wo will be
strong." The old man straightened up
on his staff and teara of joy ran down
his faco, as ho exclaimed. "Now let
mo dio in peace, I seo in those boys
Rome's strength for tho next fifty
years," Well may wo apply this to
our nation. Our fathers fouaht well
tho early battles, but their strength is
almost gone. Tho moral battles cf this
nation must bo fought by each genera
tion and tho great battle of this gener
ation is between tho saloon and tho
home. Tho saloon must be driven out
or the American home will bodostroyed.
If the home is destroyed tho nation
cannot stand. We, the young and
middle aged men, aro responsible for
the ictory or defeat of the home. I
believe wo can save tho homo fiom
overthrow and thue sae tho nation to
this geneintion. And if we train our
children right they v. ill carry the white
flag of prohibition on to victory in tho
life timoof the lining generation. 15ut
wo must strain eeiy lurve, wu should
organize Sunday schools into Bunds, of
Hope, h yal Logion, or Boys Brigades.
Our children will bo better prepared for
the fight than wo, better equipped in
education and discipline.
