democratic states. And after very
careful enquiry over the stato gen

wo aro getting as many democrats
as from tho republicans, with any
doubt on the subject being in favor
of tho former. My conviction is
that more democrats than republi

It "But do not' prohibitionists
desire to draw mostly from tho re

ject is to build up an entirely now
national party, by drawing oil" tho
most conscientious temperance men
of both, and not simply to specially
hurt or kill either."
It "But if you should help to
kill tho republican party, might you
not gain from It more rapidly, and
the sooner be able to defeat the dem
ocrats?" D. "Such talk as that would bo a
poor way to gain the democrats who
by education and long sympathy
are hostile to tho republican party,
and who would not want to assist
the prohibition party, if it was main

name, to defeat tho democrats."
It "It is supposed that your
party is going to spend its strength
mostly in doubtful states."
D. "Gonoral Fisko was hoson as
ourstanrtiirdbenrer,not because of his
state, but because of his high char
acter and ability, and because he is
esteemed in both North and South,
by both white and colored, soldiers,
and civilians. Rev. Dr. John A.
Brooks was selected because of his
sterling integrity and great ability,
being an ex-democrat, a Southern
man, and very popular iu Missouri,
his own state, and tho South gen
erally. His candidacy will antag
onize some northern men, and re
publicans who aro favorable to tho
prohibition party, but ho will break
heavily Into the democratic ranks.
Tho new party is tho only one that
can break tho wild South and the
color line. Our national committee
havo sent us a speaker, and will
probably send other. They aro
doing big work iu the South, the
stronghold of democracy. Wo have
organisations and aro holding con
ventions and doing hard work In
tho territories, where there Is no

swell tho aggregate vote and demon
