of the people together with the fact that
they nave turnaa a > deaf ear 10 I remon
strait and petition for the correction of this
abate of civil forernment Is l conclusive that the Repub
lican tiny Is Insenilble In rO Impotent for the 1 redress
of those wrongs and should no longer be Intrusted with
the powers and responsibilities of government That
although this partylu Its lata National Convention waa
silent on tha liquor question not so were Its candidates
MulTi Stain and Logan Within the year past Mr
BlaIn has publicly recommended that tha revenue de
rlitd tam the liquor traffic shall ba distributed among
the states and senator Logan has by bill proposed
devote revenues to this support of schools Thus
both virtually I recoimnsnd the perpetuation of the traffic
and that the Slits and Its cftlseiis shall become part
ners In the liquor crime
1 The fact that the Democratic party has In Its national
elellverance of party policy arrayed Itself on the side
of the drink makers and sellers by declaring I against the
policy of prohibition of such traffic nnder tha false
name of sumptuary laws and when In power In some of
the mates lu refusing remedial legislation and In Con
gress of refusing In permit the creation of a Board of
Inquiry 1 investigate and report upon tha effects of
this traffic prove that the Democratic party should
not be Intrusted with power and place J that there
can ba nngreater peril to thenatlon than tha exlfllng
competition of the Republican and Democratic parties
for toe liquor vote Kspenence shows that any party
not J opposed oo the traffic will 1 engage YI In this
competition will court tha favor of tha criminal classes I
will barter away public morals nurltv of tha ballot and
every trust and object of good government for party
succusl and patriots and good citizens should and la
this practice sufflcltnt cause for Immediate withdrawal
from all connection with their party
