SCHERMERHORN & WEST, Corner Grand and Jackson Sts, TO CONOUER THE EVIL, tb Dr. Arthur I. Groves Tells How to Cope With a Terrible Scourge. m An Address on Intemperance Y Before the Salt Lake Minis- w terial Association. Heretofore the Various Evangelical Asso ciations Have Been Powerless to Deal With the Question. " -s p At a meeting of the ministerial associa- d tion of Salt Lake city, hold at the First Presbyterian church, Dr. Arthur I. Groves, a physician in charge of the Keeley institute d in that city, delivered the following ad- v dress: b Perhaps the one greatest cause of suffer- b ins and evil in the world is intemperance. t Hitherto the vast majority of those who t have fallen under its deadly spell were on- I able to free themselves from the slavery of Y this disease. The lovers of stimulants will have stimulants if they are to be had by force, money or fraud. The disease re- a mains. The craving burns, and drink they a will have if drink is to be procured. There t is no cessation of the craving with such; their only refuge heretofore has been the inebriate asylum or the grave, but amid the darkness the glorious "Star of Hope" has shone forth, help has comns and is at hand. Discovery is generally gradual, little by little a new principle, or a new application of an old one, unfolds itself, and many in dividuals, independently and apart, come astonishingly near to the evolution of a new law or mode withount exactly reaching it. When one by some inspiration or patient study supplies the missing link and perfects the chain, he is entitled to great honer. To Dr. Keeley belongs the honor of supplying the missing link in the chain of medical discovery for the cure of dis eases known as alchoholism and morphia mania. Through his instrumentality, and as many believe, by the aid of Divine help, men who have l,st all traces of manhood, through acquiring these diseases, are saved from a fearful bondage, are lifted up and made new men. It is ',pon this subjectthat I wish to speak to you this afternoon. I assure you that I doubly appreciate the opportunity you have afforded me to present to your noble body for favorable consideration the Keeley cure and the work we are doing. First, for the apparent interest you manifest in it, and second, for the possible results that may accrue, recognizing as I do your sacred calling of "spiritual" and to a certain ex tent "temporal" advisers of many. Ever since my arrival in the beautiful city of Salt Lake it has been a source of no little anxiety on my part as to how I could best invite the co-operation of the minis ters of the different churches and the re ligious societies, not with mercenary views, but through a heartfelt desire tobeneit my fellowmen and brothers and bring happi ness and sunshine into desolate homes. It is impossible to be associated with the Keeley institute either as physician or patient and see the results of their treat ment without recognizing their great mis sion and speoalating upon the possibilities they present of reclaiming the masses. It is a deplorable but accepted fact, I believe, that more than half of our laborers and a great many of our doctors of law and medi cine are addicted to one or more of the dif ferent habits of diseases at which our in stitutes are et:iking such telling blows. To intelligently handle the subject of dipsomania, chronic alcoholism and mor phiamania and their possible cure, it would t be necessary for you to accet the theory of h the recognized medical authorities as to c these being diseases. The causes of these b diseases vary in different temperaments, I but their terrible results are similar. It p would unnecessarily task your patience to I relate some of the excuses and apparent t causes presented for daily intemperance, no 1 two alike, as you no doubt are familiar with t many, the victims invariably hesitating to accept the theory that alcoholism and mor- I phiamania are diseases, but all admitting t their inability to control their appetites. You all no doubt are famuiliar with the t fearful havoc they work. I will give you, with your permission, a slight idea of how t this alcohol disease fastens to the victim t with a vice-like grasp. Before doing so, 1 however, I will state that from close obser vation morphiamania is more seductive in its first stages and more terrible in its re suilts. The whisky habit, as it is called, is a dis ease, and, as I believe, acquired, and must be therefore medically treated to insure permanent relief. Its effects are upon the moral, mental and physical being in its different stages. When a youth of moral training begins to indulge in drink of any kind he is actu ated by motives purely social. Hie little dreams he is caressing a torpid viper, which when thoroughly warmed by constant em braces, will sting him to death. Tihe mod erate use of alcohol to the beginner makes his eyes dance with envied light and his tongue utter gay and witty speeches. For r the time being the world seems filled with light, love, gaiety and promise. Foolish youth. He has tasted the delights of for bidden fruit, and in so doing he has allowed deceortion to creeop into his life. He real izes he has done wrong, but there is time enough, he thinks, to settle down. He will stop before he is found out. lie reasons thus, why should not he have a good time now with all the vyears of his life stretching out before him? so lie yields, becoming more acquainted with sin and growing less smindful of the warnings of conscience. a The possibility of becoming a drunkard never occurred to him. The tottering foot steps, the thick speech and trembling I hands, hold out no warnings to him, they a only excite his pity or ridicule. T'theoi, is no set limit to the first stage of a his drinking experience. It merges into tihe second stage when his outraged consti a tution demands stimulants. IHe has g reached the first serious crisis in his drink r ing career and th real battle begins. if d lihe does not turn from the cup now his Schances are small. Hle hia arrived at a point in the downward road where reforma r tion is possible, but not at all probable: n He must choose one of these routes, viz: T 'Iotal abstinence, habitual drinkinll or spree drinking. His decision will be gov eorned largely by circumstances, surround ings, honme influences, training and tein P perament. If he is a matn slow of mind 1, and speech, carnless of others' opinions, he d will throw aside restraint and start out on d the habitual drunkard's road, su mnodarart. drinker. lie will daily encourase the k craving, regulating the quantity to his con I stitutional demiands. If, on the other re hand, he is of an imaginative tempt amenit, ly with hieh aspirations, or if, by virtue of re his earlier training, he is keenly alive to is the disgraceful associations of whisky, he wd will be too weak, because of his already irn sy pil:ed control, to turn from the allure ad ments forever. He will travel the road of t- the spree drunkard, or dipsomnaniac. lie suffers in the initial stage a thousand al tortures for every drunk. His better nature no is in p:-rpetual revolt against this excessive Id Indulgeuce; lie soon becomes, however, a is- master in the art of deception. lie begins re- with debauches confined to the night, but vs, there conies a time when abused nature isr sy poses a penalty of heavy daylight bracing pi- up. It is not long before ho hraies ulr too much and dare riot go home. lHeartsick, he nervous, remorseful, he goes on his lirst or open spree. Concealment is no longer it at- temated. He grows desperate, lie is un is- able to face the family circle. lie drinks ies now to drown remorse and conscience. It Generallv strong of constitution he forguoe ve, rest and nourishment and lives for days on Ia stimulants alone. liHe does not stop until di- his stomach refuses to retain a drop more it- then the awful home going. I sonietimest in- wish I had the power to picture his feelinsg: now. Pon will never be able to portray hit of conscience at this tite. tor- The agony, the horror is beyond descrip. tion. The stimulant no sooner dies within it him, than he realizes every disgraceful in- n cident in this debauch. The picture drives o him frantic with grief, remorse and shame. His physical suffering is nothing in eom- V parison to the unutterable mental anguish. tl From this time he firmlv intends to redeem o the past, and fancies in his own heart that a he will never drink to excess again. Try as tr hard as he will, he cannot say in his heart, s "I will never touch another drop as long as a I live." He cannot get rid of the idea that d under such circumstan.ces in the future he b will drink again for the pleasuret there is in drinking moderately. Every a drinking man, who has passed this f stage, will endorse this statement, the disease beginning to fasten on a ahe victim, and is the entrance to the third d stage. His very buoyancy and resolve beget c overconfidence, and he grows less careful. a He begins to feel proud of his record, and a determination to conquer every tempta- a tion. Soon there springs into life an unac countable desire for change and excite ment; for something, he knows not what. 1 He crows restless, nervous and depressed at 1 times. In a moment of high mental or 5 physical excitement, or abnormal depres- I sion, as the case may be, he takes one drink and again falls. Ile fights a hard fight for days or weeks, according to his strength, 1 but be cannot get away from that one 1 drink, which has broken down the barriers 1 of his resolve and he cannot build them up again, try as hard as he will. He grows de- i pressed, discouraged, and finally, in de spair, plunges recklessly into another de bauch. His life from this time is a series of stumbles, falls, ups and downs. a state of drunkenness, relieved by sober and lucid intervals, which grow shorter as the sprees grow longe". It is in this stage of the disease that some few have, by the exercise of their own will, reformed, through religious or moral in fluences, but for every one who does reform there are thousands who are lost. Suicides, maniacs, criminals and tramps leave the Smain body along the road in this third period. The remainder reach the fourth and last stage, as it may be, years before the victim completely destroys the confi dance and hope of all interested in him, but finally he does arrive at that point. It is during this third stage, as 1 have called it, that whisky begins to change his nature. Alcoholism fails to relieve or excite as it did formerly. It loses its exhilarating power. instead of transforming him from the remorseful, consciencS-strioken man into the jolly fellow of old, it deadens his brain, subjugates his muscle. le crows morose, ill-mannered and quarrelsome. Instead of the old wakefulness, nervous activity and mental aberration, we now find him, after a few days of hard drinking, r ill the back room of a saloon, <n a table or - a chair or oni the floor inl a drunken stupor. He has entered the fourth stage of his disease. Alcoholism has conquered mind I and body. The manc is a slave, hie can only e be relieved from his bondagre y medical ' skill: without it he is utterly hopeless and doomed. u I believe that it is an accepted fact that every desire of the hbart to do right and ,r good is an unuttered plaver. While I may I, not agree with Leslie E. Keiley regarding f theology. I myself recognize the hand of o the Master in the undertaking of this bootn a to humanit'. I- noticed, some time ago, an item in the - Nw York dispatches to the effect that Jay if Gould had evidently experienced ia change of heart, and as an evidence of such had d contributed $10,0)l to charity work. A ror re sreend doctor, a fatuous divine, had curi re ouriy asked where he had received the a money front, intending, no doubrit, that it is was next to sncrilege to arccet of mIoney At o<btained through speculationtl or usury. If m- ray moemory serves irle right, lie was an tA swezed by a brother divine, ''"The source of tu ia gift was not of such groat nliliaiont as the It. use made of it." st I lhav noticed tih downfall and record of t- the tv. I. S. I. Kalloch, a most Uifted pulpit n- orator, it man of comrandling prUsence ks and powerful lignirloti,lsco, who no doubt to. preached tihe word with effective power, err and Ins bhen inst rumetrllalin bringing souol an to Christ. and yet ha himself was corrupt. ti It only goes t to lIwthaI lt (oll bleses ris - word to some soal by whormsoiver preached, l5s but does not nicessarily Ilesa the preacher. [s I draw attention only to these hinstances to ims ilpress upon your minds that we should not always inquire toio closely as to the p- source of good gifts, provided they bear thI imprint of Divine sanction through their a ultimate results. "God works in mysteri- q onus ways his wonders to perform." It is also a sad fact that the churches, the a Women's Christian Temperance union, and t the Young Men's Christian association and r other evangelical associations have been, 1 and are to-day, powerless to cope with this terrible scourge. It is a source of great sorrow to see the backsliding of a convert and to see the man resuming his former t dissipated habits; the cause is' looked for. 1 but always in the wrong direction. He has the fatal disease, and it would be as rea sonable to expect a child delirious with t fever not to partake of a cooling potion placed within its reach as the dipsomaniac and morphian'aniac to abstain from their 1 drugs. God, I believe, in his wise provi dence has opened up an avenue of escape, and we will be held accountable for negli gence if we do not point out the road to our I erring and sick brother or sister. Our responsibility seems all the greater when we read St. Paul's epistle to the Ga latians. "Drunkenness, reveling and such I like * . they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom cf God." I I look forward to the day when the common drunkard will be sentenced to a term in the Keeley institute, and instead of being a public beneficiary, compelled to be a pub lie benefactor, by contributing to the ad vancement of society and the upbuilding of commercial enterprises. I believe the day is not far distant when all religions denominations will unite in invoking Di vine blessing upon all institutions for the uplifting of fallen humanity. 1 would say, in conclusion, that I believe the time has come for you gentlemen to in vestigate this thoroughly, and if you find it as I have stated, you ought to take hold of it. We all recognize what power there is in the pulpit for doing good. It is your part in this noble work to point out the course to be pursued by those suffering from these diseases. After the patients have gone through our institutions and received the cure, you should then throw around them the influence of church society; but until they are cured of these diseases, I believe your time will be wasted in the greater number of cases in trying to point out a way to a better life by any other means. The very first requirement in a patient is that he shall be.himsolf desirous of getting rid of the disease of alcoholism, dipso mania, or morphinmania, and without this desire it is almost impossible to effect a cure. 'The Keeley treatment does not paralyze the muscles of the patient's arm or of his throat. He can still lift liquor to his mouth and still swallow it, but the core does re move all the morbid craving for stimulants, and restores to the patient his full self con trol and places him where he was when he first began their use, so he can let them alone afterwards if he acooses to. Surely the implanting of the desire to be cured and the resolve to continue in well doing after the cure has been effected are pecu liarly your province. Now a few words as to the history of the Keeley cure and its physical side. The in ventor, Dr. Leslie JI. Keeley, is a regular practicing physician with over thirty years' experience. He was army surgeon during f the late war, and has been for many years, and still is, surgeon to the Chicago & Alton railway. l He has made a special study of alcohol ism and kindred diseases for over twenty years, and this method of treatment is not I a sudden discovery, but the result of long yeanr of patient inquiry and scentillo re search. tis cure came into prominonce esome eleven years ago, and has eoen stead t ily growing ever since. The details are very y simple. Tie patient is furnished with a Squantity of internal remedy which he takes every two hours while awake. The princi pal ingredient is the double chloride of u gold and sodium-a remedy which has been in use for many years. It is this medicine f which has given it the name of the "Gold i Cure." To sunpplement the internal medi e cine, the patient receives, four times a day, t a hypoderumc injection in the arm, which is given at regular intervals. The ingredients Is of this injection are Dr. Keeley's secret. No trestraint whatever is nut upon the patienet. le is never locked up. lie is not debarred from stimulants of any kind with the sole r' exception of cigarettes; but whisky, mor a phine, or whatever lie has been in the habit d of using, are furnished until he can drop xs them voluntarily. The rules for diet are W simply to eat anything which does not die. agree with him. He is required to take fre quent baths and to retire early. The treat ment given produces no pain or unpleasant sensations, but as the medicines are grad unted to suit individual cases the patient must be watched carefully by the attendant physician. d After the third day the patient is usually ready to give up stimulants, and his health and appetite improve from that time. 'The 1 time for the cure of the liquor or tobacco t habit is generally three weeks; for the t opium or morphine habit, four weeks. Co caine, chloral and ether habits are also treated. The after effects of the treatment are not at all injurious, as some persons would lead one to believe. The patients enjoy better health than formerly, and accordmin to all statistics, among all the patients who have taken treatment, the death rate is far a less than among the same number of per sons who never took the treatment. Out of 43,000 persons there is sure to be a death now and then, but when we consider the physical wrecks a large number of them are. and then know the death rat, is far less among them, as I have stated, than the same number of persons we meet on the street each day, it ought to show what a tonic the medicine really is, rather than its injurious effects. The results of the treat ment are that 95 per cent of all persons treated are permanently cured. And now, gentlemen, I would suggest that if you would like to investigate the cure practically, you select some man whom you know to be afflicted with one of these com plaints, and have him go through the treat ment. Let him give you his experience then, and after he has gone out, and if you do not think as highly of it as I do, or as 43,000 cured patients do, whose testimony is now filling the land, I shall be sadly dis appointed.
