Neither can 1 agree with Dr. May; i
would look for a Democratic Leglalatare to
naaa a nrohlbltion law as soon as a Republl
caa one would: for the truth Is, whisky b
drunk by all po luel parties aad by all relig
ious denominations, aad by all claasea aud all
professions by all raeee and colore ot the hu
maa family. Bo there Is no use In saying
tbatdrunkenacse belongs to the Democratic
party alone; or that It is more la favor of pro
hlMtlag the whisky traffic by legislative enact
ment than the Republican party. Toa may
take every ItfBocrei out Of the Mlaaoarl Leg
Mature aad replace them with Republleaaa (a
chan ice I would like to sec) and yet the whisky
trade would still go oa the same as ever.
i Dr. May may be strictly temperate, but his
petty fa ao mora temperate thaa the Demo
cratic party. I keow some Democrats that
profess to he etrktly temperate, while 1 know
some Republicans that caa out-drink all crea
tion ; so the drinking of Intoxicants la sot coo
eA ta an nartv or sect or nationality.
