MAKING WAE ON THE DRINK DEMON
Some Extracts from the Addrru of the
president. Miss Willard A Sad State of
Affairs Among the Women of England
Comments on the Presidential Candi
dates Her I'lea for Franchise for the
Fair Sex A Monster Petition Features
of the Meeting.
Denver, Oct. " 29. The temperance
women of the country were the "attrac
tion" at Denver yesterday. There were
hundreds of them, either as delegates or
visitors, assembled in national convention
of the W. C. T. U. and the "greatest of
these" was Miss Frances "Willard. This
lady presided and delivered an address
which would make over twenty columns of
matter for printers and which covered the
subject she had set oat to discuss. In this
document the enterprises of the W. C. T.
U. are treated at some length, especially
the Woman's Temperance Publishing as
sociation, the National Temperance hospi
tal and the Woman's Temple in Chicago.
A great deal of space in the address is de
voted to her Investigations respecting the
liquor question in England.
Hard Drinking Among English Women.
She finds that Kngland with her thirty
seven millions of population, has a much
larger drink bill this year than America
with her 63,000,000. "It is an astounding
fact," she says, "that S,373 women have
been arrest! in the streets of London
within the last year for being what the po
lice call 'drunk and disorderly.' The worst
of it is that this number docs not at all re
veal the actual enormity of the situation,
for it is almost wholly the lower classes
that these figures represent. There are
regular sets of drinking women who club
together and treat each other and do not
allow themselves to fall into the hands of
the police, while the secret drinking of the
most aristocratic classes swells still further
the pitiable army, wholly from the mother
sex, who are giving themselves to the devil
through the voluntary insanity of alcohol."
ltig Petition for the World's Fair.
Considerable spare is devoted to the
world's W. C. T. U. which will convene in
Chicago in June, which is expected to be
the greatest gathering of temperance wom
en ever brought together. The national
convention is alo expTtel to meet at the
same time. Under the head of new depart
ments the local union is discussed at great
length, and the need of recruits to go out
ami organize societies is pointed out. The
polyglot pet itien, which is a protest, nciinst
the liquor traffic from all nations, is said
to have received 1,112,73." si:ii:t urcs dur
ing the year. This monster protest. Miss
Willard says, will be on view at the
World's fair as an offset to the displays of
the brewer and the distiller. She says that
America is far behind in the number of
signers and urges that tetujwrance women
everywhere go to work in order that Amer
ica may not be last in this good work.
Could Me Tolerably Happy with Either.
Prohibition, Miss Willard say?, is the
movement to which they pin their faith,
and the saloon is pictured as the most por
tentous factor in American politics, con
trolling the votes of the people and decid
ing the destinies of states. Turning to
politics, she says: "While my honest fcmlty
is given to General Birjwell and Rev. J. B.
Cranfield, our own ticket, by which I mean
the ticket to which the white ribboners
'lend their influence' (having neither money
nor ballots to lend), I can stiil rejoice in the
strong help given to the catioe of civil ser
vice reform by the Democratic candidate,
while I grieve to learn, since my arrival, of
bis subservience to the tigers of Tammany
Hall; and I remember proudly as a patriot
the clean personal record of the present
president, while I bemoan bis use of wine
and the fact that he can by no means re
turn to power without the liquor vote.
Plea For Woman Suffrage.
Speaking of woman's claim to the ballot
she says: "If we are ever to save the state,
we must enfranchise the sex which at this
moment has to hear the most painful bur
dens imposed by nature upon humanity,
and which is much more acclimatised to
self sacrifice for others than the sex which
at present monoplizes the franchise. Give
us the vote, that we may be recognised as
if we were capable citizens. Give us the
vote, in order that we may help in purify
ing politics, which at present can hardly be
said to be so ideally pure that you ean
afford to refuse a helping hand. Give us
the vote, in order that we may use it, and
in using it exercise ourselves in the dis
charge of responsible duties, in the admin
istration of affairs which form so. large a
part of the realms of most men."
Scientific Care of Drunkenness.
The establishment of an institution for
the scientific cure of drunkenness is favored
and the president takes occasion to reiterate
that the white-ribboners are among the most
earnest helpers of such scientific cores aa
commend themselves by their results. We
are held from the specific indorsement of
any bocauae there are several so similar
and among them there is such vigorous
rivalry that we do not deem it wise to take

She met a furious storm Tuesday and
also a fog, thereby losing her reckoning.
Supposing herself well out from the coast
she steamed ahead at half speed when sud

not live a minute, their occupants all being

nine survivors the gale abated and they got

Code of Cruelty Lavs
Philadelphia, Oct. 29. The concluding
session of the sixteenth annual convention
of the American Humane association was
held at the Continental hotel yesterday.
The first business was the presentation of
a report providing for the formulation of a
code of 1ft ws relat ing to cruelty to children
and animals. The society will make an
aggressive endeavor to have laws enacted
for the prevention of cruelty in every state
and territory. Negotiations were passed to
the effect t hat all societies investigate the
many schemes of child insurance now in
One for His Highness "Nob."
In st rong language the society condemned
the "animal race," given at Bar Harbor last
summer. In the race were said to have
been included a goat, cat, calf, pig, mouse,
cock, bee, hen, rat. alligator and porcupine.
This race was said to have been introduced
by the Tnrkish minister and a copy of the
resolution will be sent to him. The famons
ride of the Austrian and German cavalry
officers next came in for the society's atten
tion aud was vigorously handled. A reso
lution condemning the cruelties of the per
formance was passed. Copies of the resolu
tion will be furnished to the American
ministers in Austria and Germany.
The Question nf Vivisection.
The next resolution related to the method
of caring for cattle on the western plains.
This system was characterized as a dis
grace to civilization. The reading of a
paper by Mrs. Mary G. Lovell on "Scientific
Research in Relation to Unman Educa
tion" Started a heated discussion on vivi
section which finally ended in the adoption
of a substitute resolution to the effect that
the American Humane association respect
fully urges the enactment of laws which
shall prohibit painful experiments upon
animals for the purpose of teaching or
demonstrating well known and accepted
facts. John G. Shortall. of Chicago, was
elected president, and Martin V. Davis.
