Platform of the National Prohibition
Party.
Adopted at the Chicago Convention, Sept'r.
2, 1869.
Whereas, Protection and allegiance are
reciprocal duties, and every citizen
who yields obedience to the just com
mands of his government is entitled
to the full, complete and perfect pro
tection of that government in the en
joyment of personal security, person
al liberty, and private property, and
Whrreas, The traffic in intoxicating
drinks greatly impairs the personal
security and personal liberty of large
masses ot citizens, and- renders pri
vate property insecure, and
HF.BK49, me existing parties are
hopelessly unwilling to adopt an ad
equate policy on this question, there-
lore we, in national convention as
sembled, as citizens of this free re
public, sharing in the duties and re
sponsibilities of its government, in
the discharge of a solemn drty we
owe to our country and our race,
unite in the following declaration of
principles :
I. That while we acknowledge the
pure patriotism and profound states
manship of those patriots who laid
broad and deep the foundations of this
government, securing at once the
rights of the States severally and their
inseparable union by the Federal Con -ptitution,
we would not merely garnish
the sepulchers of our republican fath
ers, but we do hereby renew our sol
emn pledge of fealty to the imperish
able principles of civil and religious
liberty embodied in the Declaration of
American Independence and our Fed
eral Constitution.
2. That the traffic in intoxicating
leverages is a dishonor to hristian
rivilization, inimical to the best inter
ests of society, a political wrong of un
equaled enormity, subversive of the
ordinary objects of government, not
capable of being regulated or restrain
ed by any system or
icense whatever, !
Vnt imperatively demanding for its
suppression effective legal prohibition
)otn by State and National Legisla
tion. 3. That in view of this, and inasmuch
as the existing political parties either
oppose or ignore this great- and para
mount question, and absolutely refuse
to do anything toward the suppression
of the rum traffic, which is robbing the
nation of ifs brightest- intellects, des
troying its material prosperity, and ra
pidly undermining its verv found
tions. we are driven bv an imperative i
sense of duty to sever our connection
these political parties, and to or-1
ganize ourselves into a National Prohi-j
bition Party, having for its primary j
object the entire suppression of the!cee
traffic in intoxicating drinks. J
4. i hat while we adopt- the nameofi
the National Prohibition I'artv. asex-!
pressive of our primary object, and
while we denounce all repudiation of
the public dbt, and pledge fidelity to
the principles of the Declaration of In
dependence and the Federal Constitu
tion, we deem it inexpedient to give
prominence to other political issues.
5. That a Central Executive Commit
tee of one from each State and Terri
tory and the District of Columbia, be
appointed by the Chair, whose duty it
shall be to take such action as in their
judgment will best promote the in
terests of the party.

Senator Sherman Again.
It will be remembered that we
withdrew our charge against Sena
tor Sherman, wherein he was ac
cused of dispensing intoxicating
liquors to his friends at a Columbus
Hotel durin? the session of the lata
Republican State Convention, be-r
cause we could not subsUntiate it
by one who had seen lura do bo. as
we had supposed we could when we
made it. Although Mr. Pyle, of the
Zanesville City Titties, asserts that
be was told so by one who claimed
to know, yet we would not continue
a charge against any man unless
we Knew who had seen the deed
done. But scarcely had our with
drawal of our charge been publish
ed, before the following appeared in
the Yolksfreund. of lust Silurday, a
German paper published in Cincin
nati :
"When on Wednesday last the United
States Senator of Ohio, who, for good rea-
om, bas misgivings about hi re election,
made bis anpearauce, in company witn a
couple of well-known political wire-pullers,
at the Orpheus Picnic, aud drank beer,
eertain sagacious American observers im
mediately remarked: 'Here's something
going on similar to tbat when .Mayor Da
vis drank beer, before bis election.'"
So, it seems that Senator Sher
man, during his late visit to Cincin
nati, paid court to the German ele
ment ol that city by drinking beer
at one of their picnics Mayor Da
vis, of Cincinniiti, when he was elec
tioneering lor his present position,
drank copiously of beer, it is said.
tor the purpose of influencing the
German vote; and then when he
was fleeted bv means ol this vote,
he endeavored to ei.-iorce the Sun
day laws against this beer drinking.
The lolksfreund evidently thinks
that Sherman, in drinking beer, wat
following out Mayor Djvis lac'.ics.
We do not believe that Sherman in
an intemperate man and never
heard of h:s being drunk, but we
do believe that he is one ot thooe
that would not hesitate to use in
toxicating liquors in order to pave
his way to political prtterniunt
