Platform of the National Prohibition
Adopted at the Chicago Convention, Sept'r.
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
Whereas, The traffic in intoxicating
- drinks greatly impairs the personal
- security and personal liberty of large
masses of citizens, and renders pri
vate property insecure, and
Whereas, The existing parties are
hopelessly unwilling to adopt an ad-
equate policy on this question, there
fore 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 6f a solemn drty we
owe to our country and our race.
- unite in the following declaration of
. 1." 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
stitution, 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'
2. 1 hat the traffic in intoxicating
beverages is a dishonor ta christian
civilization, 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 syHt-wiu of license whatever,
but imperatively demanding for its
suppression effective legal prohibition
bothby Stte"au(I 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 its brightest intellects, des
troying its material prosperity, and ra
pidly undermining its very founda
tions, we are driven by an imperative
sense of duty to sever our connection
with these political parties, and to or
ganize ourselves into a National Prohi
bition Party, having for its primary
object the entire suppression of the
traffic in intoxicating drinks.
4. That while we adopt the name of
the .Nation ml Prohibition rarty, as ex
pressive of our primary object, and
while we denounce all repudiation of
the public d-bt, 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 poutical 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 t he party.

The above ii a rather expressive heading,
ain't it? But while yon are taking in its
force, we want you to note. also, tbat it it
quoted. It is a quotation from onr old
friend, James M. Gaylord, the "wheel
horse" of the "new departure" Democracy
of Morgan. Gaylord it presumed to be tbe
chief editor of the Democrat, and be jumped
on ut the -other day on tbe ttreet because
ofourdefente of Rev. C. W. Courtright,
whom the Democrat to falsely assailed. In
the course of hit tirade be taid to ut: ' Ton
need not expect to act an v of tkeat freahyter-
ian wkisky-tueiert to rule your ticket F' We
give publicity to thit to tbow the opinion
such men at Gaylord hive of the Presby
terians ol Morgan tamnty. lit puonciy
proclaims them to be "whiakyrfuckeri."
and thinkt. evidently, tbat a bottle of
whisky would nave more influence over
their vstes than the teaching of Christian
ity; at least we judge to from the editorials
he weekly putt forth in the Democrat. Gay

Fall, be will "go for" tbe clergy generally
Presbyterian, Method ist, and all.
Thx Democrat of last week is full
of slang and false statement and
charges against us, but we do not
propose to occupy space in replying
to them at any great length. In
truth,' wo do not leel that ur read
ers are greatly interested in such
matters. When tha Democrat so
nnnecessarily and falsely attacked
Rev. C. W. Courtnght, relative to
his business matters, wo thought it
well enough to tell the people the
business the editor ot lha Democrat
had been recently engaged in, and
this iHthe cause ot the onslaught on
us. If tbe Democrat expects to cov
er np its mean and cowardly at
tack on Mr. Coortright by publish
ing column after column of false
hoods and slang against ns, we think
it will be woefully disappointed,
and here we let tbe matter rest.
We would say, however, : that
the Democrat would oblidge greatly
by quoting as correctly, when it
sees proper to quote us m an, ana
to then adhere to the truth, even if
it finds it impossible 13 tf o so at any
other time. It gives bat that we
staled that Richard Stanton, in of
fering at one time a hundred dol
lars toward starting a Prohibition
paper, and James IS. McGrew, in
saying at one time that be would
take twenty copies of a Prohibition
paper, placed themselves under oh
ligations to fulfill their promises to
as. We never made any such state
ment, and the Democrat is entirety
unwarranted in saying so. Onr pa
per was turned into a Prohibition
organ long after those promi'-es
were made, and long after they had
ceased to be binding on Messrs.
Stanton and McGrew.
The cry in the Democrat, charg
ing us with "selling out" and being
'bought back," etc., is made with
tbe same view that was in the mind
of the editor of that paper when his
attack was made on Be v. C. W.
Courtright. Tbe object of the at
tack on Mr. Courtright was to de
stroy bin influence amongst the
people; tbe charge against as is
made to destroy, the influence of
our paper. lne Democrat eauor
knows he falsities whenever be as
serts eucb a thing. If we had sold
oat for half price one-half the num
ber of times we have, been charged
with selling out by the whisky
portion ot the Democrats of Mor
gan, we would be rich.

COL. CONNEL'S LETTER
Lancaster, O., Aug. 2, 1871.
Hon. A. G. Thurmnn, Chairman
Democratic State Executive Com
mit t e :
I have received what appears to
be a circular letter, signed by yoa
as Chairman of the Democratic
State Executive Committee, invit
ing me to enter tbe pending State
canvass as a speaker to assist in the
full discussion of the questions at
issue between the two parties and
after mature and careful delibera
tion, am impelled to answer that I
can not give an honest consent to
do so, and 1 desire to express my
reasons for declining.
2s o one has a greater desire than I
for the overthrow of the dangerous
and powerful party now controlling
the Government, and l naa nopea
that Bach wise counsels would have
prevailed at oar State Convention,
as to have almost insured our suc
cess iu which event, I wouid ha-ve
given all of labor, influence and
strength I have to a coble cause for
which I bave heretofore labored.
Eat "in the houso of its friends,"
at that convention, were dealt the
deadliest blows to the Democracy it
has yet received.
The action there, the blunders,
or worse, in the nomination for Gov
ernor, the witchery which stole
away the reason ot delegates, ana
in some mysterious way caused
them to forswear their faith, and
by public recantation confess tbat
the mission ana tne creea oi tue
parly since tho war were false, her
etical and wrong, have sickened tbe
hearts of tbe honest, quiet, thinking
voters of our party to an extent not
yet fuily recognized by our leaders,
who then voluntarily walked np
and sat on the "cuttyMitool."
The voters of our party are not
uninformed of the false position the
party is placed in. They know wo
are going before the people this fall
with at Iea3t two untruths glaring
ly conspicuous on our front. First,
they know that Col. McCook was
not nominated for Governor, and
that hiB principal competitor led
him on the first ballot, wbec the
unaccountable mistake or fraud oc
curred in tho announcement of the
vote which scores of delegates knew
to be false; and they will soon learn
bow shocked were tbe lrionds of
oar de facto candidate for Govern
or, who believed him to be too high
toned and sensitive to stand in his
present disagreeable position, when
they discovered that he permitted
his immediate partisans to simply
say in regard to the fraud or mis
take in the nomination, that they
could only "hope that it would not
This, however, is a small matter
compared to the falsehoods express
ed in the party platform. Wben
'.he convention took upon itself to
declare that the Democracy of this
State recognized as accomplished
facts the two -latest (so-called;
amendments to tbe Constitution,
and regarded tbem as no longer po
litical issues before the country, it
stated an untruth. Nothing in pol
itics, then or now, has more effected
the hearts and minds of Democrst
ic voters than these,' their denomi
nated Jena issues. And when, in
the second resolution, tbe conven
tion undertook to say that "the
democratic party pledges itself to
the full, faithful and absolute exe
cution and enforcement of the Con
stitution, as it now is, so as to se
cure equal rights to all persons nn
der it, without distinction of race,
color or condition." it exceeded its
authority and simply asserted what
was known to be a falsehood.
Frank Hard represented on the
floor ot the eonvention the true
sentiments of the Democracy of
umo. ihey were expressed first
t.:- i -. - f ? .
in uis renuiution ox instructions
' That the Committee on Rcaolu.
tions be instructed to make no aN
IaBions in their report to the eo-
called Fourteenth and Fifteenth
Amendments to the Constitution of
the United States-" And afterwards
in his minority report, stating "that
it was inexpedient to make any ex
pression of opinion as to the Four
teenth and Fifteenth Amendments.
Yet if an expression be deemed nec
essary' that the following be adopt
ed as a substitute to tho first and
second resolutions proposed to this
'-Xetolved, That the Fourteenth
and Fifteenth Amendments have
been made parts of the Federal
Constitution by fraud and violence,
and are revolutionary and void."
It the Democratic party is mori
bund, then its political priests may
be allowed to dictate to it confes
sions of sins ot their own defining.
Hut they bave eertuinly made the
party to appear like the dying Af
rican, who, wben asked by his
pruuclier if he was leady to die, and
whether he had foririven bis ure
mics, and especially bis colored
neighbor botweeen whom and him
self there had been a feud, answer
ed : 'lf l'se gwine to die.l forirlve
him, bat if I gets well, dut darkie
had belter look out for hisself."
Worse than the misrepresenta
tion of tbe party m it views of tbe
right and validity of tbe Fourteenth
nod Fifteenth Amendments, is the
confessiou of previous errors and
false opinions, implied in the Ian.

In recognising the validity of
these amendments and in pledging
oar party to the execution and en
forcemeat of them, we acknowledge
Congressional reconstruction fully,
against which we have contonded
with brave and hopeful hearts, as a
party, for five years. We give up
the eld Constitution, the reserved
rights of the States, the dearest
right of tbe nativejwhite man his
suffrage and surrender absolute
power to Congress to aestroy Slates,
to take away their sovereignty, to
nullify their Constitutions, to deny
to them and their people tbe right
of self-government, to pat foreign
rulers over them, to control them
bv swarms ot newly made barbari
an voters, to kbolisb their courts
and annul their laws, substituting
therefor the arbitrary willoHon
cress and of its military satraps.
Besiitence to all of these laws du
ring their accomplishment, which
are now acknowledged to be tight
or remediless, in our party platform,
brought into the Democratic party,
or in full accord with it, by such
men as Groesbeck, Ewing, Camp
bell, Ward and a host of others, who
may well exclaim, "Where now
shall we go?" Why nee the cant,
senseless phrase, "dead political is
sues?" No convention of men ever
wtre able by words to bury a polit
ical question so long as it tone hod
tbe hearts of the people, or agita
ted the minds of men. An institu
tion like slavery might cease to ex
ist, but a principle of government
or political action never ceases to
be of interest to a free people-and
to-day, although slavery, tbe insti
tntion. is dead, one of its consequen
ces, rebellion, is as much the right
of an oppressed people as when Mo

Immediately after this vote, bal

McCook, 197; ISwing, 177; wara.8;
Groesbeck, 1: Allen, 1. Several
delegates kept tally, and before the
official announcement of the vote,
it was known that Ewing was fif
teen votes ahead of McCook, and
had received 204 vote. On the

pears, therefore, that the vote was

and in detail. '
The evidence is strong against
tho fact of McCook's nomination,
and nothing will tend to rebut it,
but the publication of the names of
counties whose delegates tne seero

yielded to the urgent" request of
General Ewing to suppress its
publication, for it now appears that4it
would have been better tor both Ew
ing and McCook to have had the truth
boldly told at once than to hide it,
until drawn from the bottom of the
well by political antagonists.
If the Chairman of the Democratic
State Central Committee will publish
the private tally sheet kept by him as
corrected by comparison with two oth
ers when be was at Lancaster, and by
telegrams from Boss and Highland
Counties, I am satasfied that 1 will

ond ballot. . .
Under a'l circumstances, I feel sorry
that I have been driven to write so
much about an unfortunate matter,

more important question of our duty

The Democratic party lives alone by
faith in an fidelity to certain dogmas,
the championship of which by a very
few brave and true leaders in corrupt
times has saved it from disintegration.
Political soldiers of fertune have come

had character and strength. Honest
and reallyfgreat men have been driven
