Platform of the National Prohibition
Party.
Adopted at the Chicago Convention, Sept'r.
2, 1869.
'Wbrrcas, 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
Tf B pre as, The traffic in intoxicating
drinks greatly impairs the personal
security aud personal liberty of large
tnasnes of citizens, and renders pri
vate property insecure, and
ITbicbkas, 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, xharing 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 iu the following declaration of
rrinciples :
. That while we acknowledge the
pore patriotism and profound states
manship of those patriots who laid
broad aud deep the foundations of this
government, securing at once the
righto 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 berebv 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
beverages is a dishonor to hristian
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 system of license whatever,
tut imperatively demanding for its
suppression effective legal prohibition
both by State and National Legisla
tion. 3. That in view of this, and inasmuch
at 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
ense of duty to sever our connection
with these political parties, and to or-
tanize ourselves into a National Prohi
ition Party, having for its primary
object the entire suppression of the
traffic in intoxicating drinks.
4. That while we adopt the name of
the National Prohibition I 'arty, as ex
pressive of our primary object, and
while we denounce all repudiation of
the public debt, 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.

STEWART ON THE STUMP.
His Meetings at Athens, Middleport, Marietta,
Plymouth and Chesterfield.
G. 'I. Stewart's meetings in this
section ot the fetato, last wet-a. were
succesfclul beyond all ex pedal mm.
On the 30ih, be spoke in Aliens in
the afternoon and evening to very
respectable audiences, both in point
ot numbers and in character. Ilia
efforts in Athens culminated in the
nomination of a County ticket, to
be found ele where in this paper,
and in the recommendation ot E. S
Collins, of Logan, as the Pioltib
tion Candidate tor the State Senate
in that District. A Prohibition
Central Commilluo for the County,
It the ensuing year, was t-hoHen.
Consisting a follow : 11 J. I'upky,
V. A. Thomas, 'Rev. E N. Nichols.
Charles Doan. mid J. M. Parker.
Thus it will bo seen that a Ihoiough
organization of the Pruiiibitionini
ol Athens CouiUy has been effected,
notwithstanding ihe great oppoxi
tis thero has been to such a move
ment. At Middleport, on the 3 1ft, Mr.
Stewart addressed immense audi,
eneel both in iifiernoon and eve
ning. Both Republican and Demo
cralio candidates tur Governor bad
held meetings at Middleport, and
all conceded that Mr. Stewart's
meetings were better attended and
more enthusiastic than either ol
the others bad been. This speaks
well for the growth ot Prohibition
sentiment in Meigs County, and
will Boon bring about a complete
County organization there.
On the evening of the next day,
the 1st of this month. Mr. Stewaht
spoke in the Court House, al Mar
ietta, to au audience ol about two
hundred, tto most ot whom were
vottrs. During the day, the Pro
hibition County and Senatorial
Convention had been held in the
Court House, and had been well at
tended and had nominated good
tf-ktu, contrary to the predictions

and inducing others to do like-wise.
Bui thry failed. The meeting W;.s
welt attended, as above indicated,
and it adjourned, lifter a rpeech
more thau two hours in length by
Mr. .Stewart, lull of enthusiasm
and of a determination to do bntlle

polls hereafter.
The next day, the 2nd, Mr. Stew
art spokoat Pit mouth iu the after
noon to an audience of aboul one
hundred an J titty, the mod of whom
were voters. The meeting at Ply
mouth was not announced in that
vicinity uulil 9 o'clock, A M., of
Uie day, and no one expected any
thing l.ko such un audience aB was
present. But they came in, one
alter another, riihl from the woik
tield, until the School hoiiBe was
well filled, with many standing
rour.d the doors.
At Chestei treld, on the evening
of the 2nd, a large and enthusiastic
meeting was held at the School
House in that place, fuliy six hun
dred in nuaaoer. Mr. Stewart
spoke a little over two hours, ami
wus listened to with cIob.i jlieiuion
by all. Those who are circulating
that Prohibition is dead in and
about Chestei field wou.d have done
well to have been there on the eve
ning of the 2nd. They would have
been that there as elsewhere, it on
the increase, aud that the n.en who
have token their position as Pro
bibitionirls are not ot that class
that sacrifice their principles to
keep an- political party, or any set
of politicians, in power.
J T. Hart, of Uarmar, and C. F.

One reason for this suddeu change
in their rllegiance to party, was
because the so-called Democratic

We give a good deal of space this
week to the Sunday Law question, cop
ying an article written by a celebrated
clerryman of Cincinnati, and also the
resolutions passed by the recent M. E
Conference in Cincinnati 'I his Sun
day Law question is one that is of the
utmost importance to the people, and
one that is chief among the political
issues of the present campaign. The
Liberal German element has taken
possession of both the old political par
ties, and is endeavoring to destroy ah
our Sabbath laws through them. Wil:
the people continue to support these
parties? Can Christian and moral
men consistently continue such sup
port T These are inquiries that all
may well put to themselves. W hen
we hsve more space, we will refer to
this matter again.

Plymouth and Chesterfield. [From the N. Y. Evangelist of August 31.] THE SUNDAY LAW QUESTION.
BY REV. R. L. STANTON, D.
CINCINNATI, Aug. 21st, 1871.
Mr. Editor: The question of the
observance of the Sabbath, in seme
form or other, is always a standing,
question. Just now. in many por
tions of the country, it assumes the
form of maintaining or repealing
the laws which protect the Sab.
bath.
The preser.t aptation of the
question, which seems, very recent
ly to have extended to many cities
in the We', began in Cincinnati
The ordinances of the city, and the
laws of the Slate of Ohio, bearing
upon this general question, ure sim
ilar lo ihosoon the statute books
of every city and State in the Un
ion. Th'-y regnrd the fir-t d:iy of
I lie week a a '-day of rest.' pro
hibit common labor on this day.
protect religious assemblage irom
annoyance, and especially denounce
all rioting and revelry. The ordi
nances of the city are particularly
Ktringent in regard to dram-sbops.
They require them to be. closed en
tirely on Sunday; and do not allow
any liquor to be sold, or given away
anywhere, except for medicinal
purposes. The most decided law
on this subject bus been on the
statute lxok of the city council for
many year, uncomplained of until
within a few mon'.hs. But it lias
recently awakened opposition, and
the proclamation now is, "War to
the knifu'-airtinet ull Sunday Laws.
City and Si ate !"
The explanation of this furor is
simple. Former munieip! officers
have not enforced these laws. They
have been a dead letter for twenty
years. The officials of the city
have consulted their popularity
mure than they have regarded
their oaths of office and the true
interests of thf peop'e. As a con
sequence, vice has greatly increased,
and liquor selling and beer gardens
hsve had it all their own way. In
l!i! advance of immorality. Sunday
has been n marked day. The rec
ord of crime in the Monday dai
lies, resulting almost uniforn.ly
from liquor, began to awaken
alarm. Ministerial associations pe
titioned successive Mayors to en
force the law, but in vain. Crime
increased, vice in every form be
came more bold, and certain Sun
day caroumnts, whi;h were more
and more common, seiionn'y dis
turbed religious worship. At
length the preccht Mayor of Cincin
nati, Hon. S. S. Davis, who was
eh-cled in April last allhojgh
the matter of enforcing the Sunday
laws was not made a (-fecial point
in the election resolved to pit
these laws in force. He began
gradually, fueling his way, possibly
wishing to see whether he was to
be supported by the better portion
of his constituents. Ministerial as
sociations and other bodien came
promptly lo his aid, applauded bis
course, and p.edsred themselves to
stand by him. He went on, step
by f'tep, closing er? shops, beer
gardens, prohibiting certain Sun
day conceru, slopping beer wagonp,
and arresting and fining persistent
offenders,nntil, under these whole..
fOme measures, the city begun to
pill on, in 'Hit ward appearance at
h'i-8', tb- garb of respect for the
Lord's day. All this lias been the
work ol a few weeks.
As was natural, this aronscd the
liquor sellers, and they enlisted in
their interest the frequenters of
beer gardens and Sunday concert,
and all who wish to have a "tree
and easy lime" on Sunday, and rev.
el and caroime at pleasuro. The
discussion began in the daily pa
pers. Those who took the lead in
opposition to the Mayor's course
were mostly Germans, though they
are joined by all who keep nnd
freely patronize dram-shoi s, and by
the infidel and immoral classes, and
the opposition has final'y taken the
form of demanding the repeal of
every legal restriction upon Sun
da), relating to labor or revelry,
whether found in ihe ordinances of
the city, or in the laws or const. tu
lion of the Slate. We have ihns
presented the broadest issue It
s: i ikes at the very root of our pres
ent civilization, and proposes noth
ing less than to change that ele
ment, which more than any other,
has sjiven character lo the Ameri
can na me and people.
a be principles involved in this
discussion have been announced
with commendable oistii.einess and
candor. Public meetings have been
held on both sides in the largest
f alls in the city. Able men have
enlisted, embracing some of the
most distiiicuishtd ol the legal pro
tection, and the whole ground has
been pretty thoroughly canvusoed.
It. is uot beyond the truth, to say.
that lor numbers and high social
position, the meeting held in fav-r
oi maintaining the lows tar exceed
ed the several meetings held in op
position , and it is very gratifying
lo oiim rve the must diflingui-he i
gentlemen of the Cincinnati bat,
d all thades ol political and relig
ious opinion (who hold to the
Scriptures), boldly committing
thviiiseives in favor of sustaining
and eiitoreing the Sunday laws,
botn city and State.
Of the daily papers, so good a
record cannot be made. Cincinnati
has very large German pojiula
liou; they sustatu several daily
pajH TS printed in their own lan
guage, and all these are for repeal.
The whole German population,
however, are not lor repeal. There
are several evargebcal German
cliurchts; they sustain a weekly
paper; they are against rejieal and
I b is element was represented on
the platlorm at the public meeting
But among all the other dailies,
whether morning or evening, there
is but one which takes open, bold
and consistent ground against re
pea!. The Gazette claims this en
viable notoriety.
As already slated this movement
in Cincinnati has opened the Same
question in the cities and to ns all
over the West. We see this in the
action ofthe officers from our east
ern State border to Sioux City on
the borders of Nebraska. The Ger
mans are the chief movers in every
instance, and tbe issue is the same
the rep1 of every law which
stands in the way of their introduc
ing the Sabbath of Continental
Europe in place of that which is
distinctively American. This has
aroused tbe friends ofthe Sabbath
on all sides- and the issue is sharp
ly defined.
It may be wall to give a brief
quotation, to show tbe animus of
those who oppose the American
Sabbath, It is from a German pas
tor's discourse, and is a fair expon
ent of the views id the mass of those
who are for the repeal of the Sun
day laws. It wi'I be seen that op
position to evangelical religion
bald infidelity is at the bottom.
Speaking of tho Ten Command
ments be says : -
They are the commandments- of
Moses, which he gave, it is trite, in
the ratne of God, but which ate
only divine in to far .na they are
written io reason and conscience.
When Moses caused a man to br
stoned because he gathered some
fire wood on the Sabbath, he cer
tainly did not act by the command
jf God." He then puts the Sunday
and temperance laws together, say
;ng : "They are own cousins, and
Puritanism is their common fount
ain. Every Puritanic Sunday saint
is also a water Apostle and vice
versa." He asks : "Are these laws
founded in the rohgious and moral
wants in general, or in Christianity
in particular?" and he says: Wo
answer, without hesitation, No,
they are not."
All these men are fond of throw
ing mud at the Puritans, and to
hear them talk one would 'think
that New Fngland is the hot-bed of
all that is evil. The Rev. gentle
man quoted above contends th-it the
Puritans have changed our ''Christ
ian 'Sunday to a Jewish Sabbath
with all it oark stringency ;" and
then to give point to this, adds :
"The notorious blue laws went even
further in their requ:remer.ts than
ihe most stringent traditions ofthe
Pharisees." It is said that "com
parisons are odious," but this gen
tleman draws a comparison between
the German and the American Sah
oatb, to the disadvantage ot tbe
latter, always connecting the Tern
peranco and Sabbath question :
'On tho whole continent of Europe,
and especia'ly in Germany, nothing
is known of Temperance or Sunday
laws. Those who choose to do an
go to chuicli in the morning, and
then with bis wife and child spend
a pleasant Sunday afternoon in
drinking a glass of beer or wine.
And are the Germans less mora!
than the strict water Puritans?
Moral corruption is greater here
than there, io spite of all our Sun
day laws." And then these laws
be says: "Away with them, not
merely in the interest of individual
and civil liberty, but also out ot
religious and mora' considerations ''
Passing by '.be error that there
are no laws in Germany regulating
Sabbath observance, these extracts
give the spirit of those who are en
listed in the movement for repeal.
Like all such questions, this runs
into politics. Both because it is to be
made an issun at the polls, and be
cause it strikes at principles which
lie at the basis of America civiliza
tion, has the discussion of this
question here awakened an unueual
interest til over the country. As
it is to be met here at the ballotbox,
so it is to be met everywhere and
huicht out upon tho satuo irena.
The Sute election comes on in
Obio in October. TIiosg who are
(or the repeal ofthe Sunday lawe
have declared that they will ques
tion every candidate for office,
whether for the Legislature or for
any other post, ou the subject of
repeal. They are determined, tney
nffirmi, to work nntil the ordinances
of the city are purged of ever thing
which in -any manner recognizes
the Sabbath, and makes any dis
tinction between Sunday and any
other day oftho week. They also
intend to have the statutes of tbe
Slate purgeJ io like manner, and
even to have the Constitution of
Ohio amended to the same effect.
Tbe object in amendine th Constitution
is to relieve it of every reeogtition nf re
ligion. It says notaing inouune oaouain
directly, but't ipetktof religion and
morality .. as essential to aood eover-
mcnt," and even this is too much for our
opponents, and betrays the whols move
ment essentially infidel if not truly atheis
tic. The present Constitution f tbe Stats
provides for its own amendment once ic
twenty years. The yesr of anisndment is
172. and the last Legislature provided for
a vote on calling a Convention lor th is pur-
pote at tbe election to be beta in vciooer.
Hence the importance of questioning can -didstes-
The Legislature to ba then elect
ed meets in Jsnuary next, and will be
competent to repeal the Sunday laws.
Hence the issue at the polls. No Mayor or
council for Cincinnati will be elected before
A pril next, but tbe present Boards are com
petent to change tbe city ordinances,
though it i. maintained that it would be
unfair to bring that hiu upon them, as
they were not elected with the Sunday
subject in view. ,
I have thus given yon the issnes involv
ed. Kow, in -loing, it msybe well to in
What likaljr tu be the mult of
the appeal to the ballot box T How will
it be in the city, and how in the Stale T
If the present Boards are to decide upon
the city ordinances, their repeat may be
accomplished, though many believe the.i
will be allowed to remtiu. Of the two
Boards, the larger and popular branch has
al-eady voted, tweniy-six to sixteen, for
repeal. But tbe board ol Aldermen are yet
lo act, and it is confidently asserted that
they will not concur. We shall soon know.
But even if they should concur, the ques
tion will le nude an issue in the election
in April next. In such a city as Cincinnati,
it is doubllul wbst the result would be. It
would surprise me much if the popalar
vote should sustain the laws as they sre,
if it is understood chat tber are to be faith
fully eaforced. Tbey have remained un
disturbed simply because they hsve been a
dead letur. But even if the friends of the
Ssbbsth should be delested in the contest
over tbe city ordinances, tbe State laws sre
ample for the city, both as regards the
liquor traffic ou Snudsy. snd all other vio
la lions ofthe sanctity of the dsy. But ars
not the State laws aud the Constitution in
dsnger, too? On this there is, smong the
best informed, but one opinion. It is not
believed that tbe people of Ohio, either in
Legislature or Constitut onsl Convention
assembled, are yet read lo ignore the
principles on srhiebonr American civiliza
tion is founded, and blot from tbe statute
bonks of the State ail recognition of Christ -ianity.
Waataver else msy be said, it is
believed that they are not ready topnt
this stigma npou her fair escutcheon, ia
the preaence ot her sister States. As these
isnes are undecided, tbe subject msy bs
resumed at a future time.
P. 8. The Board of Aldermen hsve
finally voted against repeal by one major
ity. The erdinances, therefore, stand, and
tbe question goes to the polls.

not alcoholio in any sense of the leria.-
Tbey are composed wholly of tbe pare isine

of th ablest German chemists. Unlike e

wholly free horn spirrluoss ingredients.
The objections which bold witheossnsh
force against preparations ol Ikitela.
namely that a desiie for intoxicating
drinks is stimulated by their use. are set
valid in the case ol th berrna Bitters..
