Platform of the National Prohibition
Adopted at the Chicago Convention Sept'r
YTbbbbab, Protection and allegianee are
reciprocal duties, and every eitixen
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
W hire as, The traffic in intoxicating
drinks greatly impairs the personal
security and personal liberty of large
masses of citizens, ana renders pri
ate property insecure, and
AVherkas, The existing parties are
hopelessly unwilling to adopt an ad
equate policy on mis que won, nitre
fore we, in . national convention as
sembled, as citizens of this free re
public, Bharing in the duties and re
sponsibilities or its government, in
the discharge of a solemn duty we
owe to our country and our race,
unite in the following declaration of
I. That while we acknowledge the
pure patriotism and profound states
manahip 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 t ederu Con
stitution, we would not merely garnish
the sepulchers of onr 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 red
2. 1 hat the traffic in intoxicating
beverages is a dishonor to Christian
civilisation, inimical te the best inter
ests of society, a politioal wrong of un
qualed enormity, subversive of the
ordinary objects of government, not
capable of being regulated or restrain
ed by any system of license whatever,
but - imperatively demanding for its
suppression effective legal prohibition
both bx State and National Legisla
3. That in view of this, and inasmuch
as the existing political parties either
oppose or ignore this greet 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 il Prohibition Party, 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.

show that want of opportunity, rather
than lack of disposition, will prevent a

Th Abuxotok Estatb. The Cincin
nati Gazetlt has the following on this
subject : The American nation is not
so poor that iteannot buy ground for
a burial plaee fur its soldiers, nor so
reckless that it will leave the title to
the gTound where thousands of its
brave defenders lie disputable; nor so
mean that it will trust to the ghosts of
the soldiers te keep possession of their
graves by scaring away the rightful
owners of the land; nor so petty in its
ideas of justice that, out of all the
South, it will select one estate and lay
its strong hand upon it as punishment
for the war : nor so undignified that it
will attempt to hold a cemetery for its
dead defenders by a tax title, acquir
ed while it held possession of the prop
erty by force of arms. If we are to
have confiscation, let it be done with
dignity and some show of justice ; but
let us not go by crooked ways to com
pass a single estate, and plead the des
erts of all to cover it. It is evident, by
the appeals to feelings, that the Gov
ernment has no valid title to the Ar
lington property. The title can be had
by the direct process of purchase.
They who neglect the proper means to
secure the title to graves of the sold
iers are they who expose them te vio
lation. Let us have this burial place
made seeure by means suitable to its
use and to the national dignity and

EVENING SESSION. COMING OUT.
Tbe following is translated from
the Wochenllatt, of Scrantoiy Pa.,
of Jan. 26 :
'Salooh Kmpirs. A meeting of
the German saloon keepers was
held on Monday afternoon in Kief
er's Hall, which was quite numer
ously attended. Mr. II. G. DilUn
called the meeting to order, and the
following officers wero elected :
President, H. G. Dillen ; Secretary,
C. il. Steele ; Treasurer, Cbarles
Tischer. It was resolved Hint the
Secretary should give $300 and tbe
Treasurer $1,000 bonds. The Pres
ident then announced the objct of
the moeting, which was this : To
oppose ngaiiat tbo alarming in
crease of priestcraft and religious
liberty in America, a strong and
binding organization, and especial
ly to oppose temperance in every
form, and tbe so-called Young
Men's Christian Association, which
make it its chief object to ruin the
buMiness of the honest dealers in
beer and liquor. Mr. Steele also
made a speech and gave some stri
king examples of the nature, char
acter and behavior of said organi
zation. It was then road tbe du-.
ty of each member to report to the
Liquor Organization the name of
every temperance business man,
and each one was exhorted not to
support in any manner, either di
rectly or indirectly, such business
men. In the same manner all these

publisbina rmonft, lectures, Ac,
work in favor of teraporance and

against tbe wcIKbeing of society.
After the appointment of several
committees, the meetmg adjourned
till Friday, Jan. 27th, at 2 o'clock
P. M., and all saloon keepers are
invited to attend."
(Comments by the editor of the

the threat to withdraw their sup

If these persecuted saloon keep

some able i.drocatos to take up
their case and publicly defend them
against tbe charges which tbe
friends of temperance bring against

that they have a right tc make

greater service to the causo of truth

been willing to show their hands in

drinking saloons and those who
keep thcin as an abused and injur

The Delaware Gazette of week be

' Sarah Wilson, having become
disgusted with the continued ina
bility of her husband to let whisky
alone, determined to seek redress
from those who furnished him with
the means of intoxication, and she

her husband liquor from time to

If all work successfully, as did that
of Wilson v. Ott A Krack, we may
look for others to follow.
A Spanish physician who bashad
much experience in San Domingo,
writes to a New York paper : ''In
less than one year Spain sent about
forty thousand soldiers to San Do
mingo. Of these scarcely twelve
thousand left the Island, when, in
1865, they abandoned the war in
consequence of a vote ot the Cortes
repealing the act of annexation ;
the others, twenty-eight thousand,
met their graves in this gloriously
beautiful tropical climate through the
effects of tbe malarial fever there,
febris paludica. This fever is dead
ly not only to foreigners, but to na
tives also ; and it prevails there all
the year round." The writer re
fers those "who desire any further
information abort tbe gloriously
beautiful tropical climate of San
Domingo, to consult the records of
tbe French Sanitary Board in that
island during tbe war ot Franco a
gainst tbe Republic of Hayti.
From these records they will learn
that out of fifty thousand men
whom France lost in this inglor
ious sti uggle, over forty thousand
perished from the saire disease
that is. from the above fever."

—A letter from
We present onr readers with the
the following letter, recently res
ceived her by Rev. It. McGuire:
Blaiksvillk, PaNNA ,
Feb. 21, 1S71.
Dear Bro. McGciri : Yours of
the 17th inst., is at hand, and 1 has
ten a note of reply. I am not at
all surprised to learn that our Uni
versalis friends are stirred over
the circumstance at Kelly's Sta
tion. The Mr. Getty who appears
ic tne conservative, in a Universal
is Minister at Sattsburg. He is an
honorable and truthful man, 1 trust,
and yet, after a full conversation
with Miss Tsylor, Mr. Bjyle, Mr.
and Mrs. Gibton, the people in
whose house this event eccurred, 1
am enabled to stand by every im
portant assertion of my article.
That the Universalis did op
pose and ridicule the meetings held
there is just as true as anything can
be. Its not much to their credit.
Expressions wero so animated as to
cause people to think that perhaps
Methodists might not be as for
tunate in their allotments hereaf
ter as other people. As to tbe re
ligious predilections ot the father,
the daaghter affirms him to have
been in full sympathy with Uni
versalist doctrines. She may have
a sister a Methodist ; if so, I have
not been informed ot the fact She
says she joined the ehurcb about
two years since, under strong con
viction ot duty, bhe has been a con
sistent member, as conceded by the
Pastor, although greatly opposed
for the step she had taken. She
bad never experienced conversion
until the time in question. She had
not fallen fi om grace. As to the
matter of nourishment, my state
ment is true. She took no food.
Of this I hare been assured by the
gentleman and lady of tbe house
where she remained duricg her un
consciousness. Tbe conversation
held with her was taken down by
Bro. J. N. Pershing, in full, and the
statements of Mr. Getty, on this
point, are entirely unreliable.
As to Mr. White, the Presbyter
ian Minister, his name was men
tioned as distinctly as any other,
sad she avers that she had never
heard of the event of his death.
As to his relation to the Saltebnrg
Church, that was simply a want of
recollection on my part. That is en
tirely a non-essential.
That opposition ceased at the
lima mentioned, and that the mem
bership was doubled is true. That
Methodists are ashamed of it and
withhold the paper from the public,
is utterly wide of the mark. Bro.
Pershing knows of thia affair from
first to last P'ese write to him.
His reputation for veracity is, at
leat, as high as that of Mr. G.
The case is a perplexing one,
both to the Medical and Theologic
al public. I do not know what to
think of it myself. But tbe young
lady has been, and still !, ridiculed
by members ot her own family so
as to make it very unpleasant for
ber. She has been urgently solici
ted by her friends to deny the
whole affair and join the Utrversa
list Churi h. Thia she resists con
stantly. Lrt me refr you to Bro.
Pershing for additional light
Yours, very trulv.
I Do not ier one grojr shop or
rum seller. The sight of one drun
kard doos no alarm, although il
may pain nie. not when I fix my
ryes upon a rum seller, and think
that he is only one of a vast army,
banJed together for mutual protec
tion, and made by the very instincts
of thwir trade enemies to virtue and
religion ; when I think of him as
one member of a vast organisation,
knit together by an evil freemason
ry of opinion and interest, whoso
temple can only rise on tbe initis
of legitimate trade , when I think
of him as only one among thous
ands who. Ilk j leeches, fasten them
selves upon tho loins of the nation
until these loins are black with the
horrid circle, who feeJ and fill
themselves upon the blood of her
incuslry. dropping oil or torn a
way only to be quickly replaced by
others, I confess that the future
glooms dark willt disaster. Whore,
I ask myseif, as I remember the
law of cause and effect, is all this to
end 1 Is it creditable that a gov
ernment resting solely on the bal
lot can long endure when intelli
gence is perverted, self-restraint
banished, aad morality gone?

Thi Pittsburgh Commercial, referring to
the great quantity of bee: which the (1
breweries of that city manufacture, and the
consumption of some $1,0,000 worth of
the stuff during the past year, adds : "Ve
are among those who believe that ale and
beer are neither healthful nor invigorating
and that aoeioty would be Infinitely better
without them. 'Whatever may be said of
these liquors as a beverage, their nse is
largely on the increase;, and some persons
argue that as the consumption of malt liq
uors Increases, that of spirituous liquors
decreases. This does not seem to be the
case here, where doggeries flourish on every
hand, and where whisky is dragging its
victims down by thousands."
Ma. Littli, of Greene county, has in
troduced in the Ohio House a Bill
which provides that all drink-money
shall be recoverable off the seller in an
action by the wife, children or other
dependents of the drinker. That i.",

ving relatives depending on him for

year, bring suit against him and re
cover the price of every drink sold, in

NATURE'S OWN REMEDY,
19 beioe: readily accepted by those of every
msdital creed, as affording a happy substi
tute for too active or unreliable niedicatioc,
and offensive doses. .The introduction of
the only known Nerve Tonie aperient in
Dleasant and acceptable form, stands eon-
ppicuoasly as the greatest addition to mod'
era medicine. Tbey are at once tbe pre-
ventalies as well as cure for lor s class of
ailments, from which the great majority of
n arsons are at timet, made miserable, oo
happy, and physically and mentally I ne So
lent, impairment oi serve iorce reruns ue
nstly from inattention (sometimes from ne
cessity) to common sense health rules, and
is followed bv Lethtnry. Dyspepsia, Cons-
tination. Impure blood, Irregularities, Off
ensive breath aod sallowness of Complex
ion. Their action oo the Nervous system
can account for their mild and passive
efffcaev io a variety or ailments of such
apparent diversity of origin sod character.
Under their effect digestion and assimila
tion are promoted, the excretion of worn
out material in the blood is assisted, and the
brsia acta vigorously, as if ander the effect
of a stimulant.
The Calabar Grains are the appropriate
remedy for the Literary, studious and the
brain working classes, and those unable or
disinclined lor sufficient physical exercise,
and who are usually "billions." They are
tbe favorite medicine ol the ladies; tbey
are the preventive and cure of nausea
and neaaacne ot those voyaging; child
ren can take them ; they are now the
"ounce of preventative;' they aro safe,
mild and effectual ; they are apple-
seert like, tasteless and inodorous.
