15 P10HIBITI0X AND THS PSO?LS1 PUTT. To the Editor of T Advosatx. I feci th!i morninjasif It would de me some good to run a regular spanking machine for a little while, but as the characters who have caused this commo tion in my "capacious buzzuca" are at a distance, I shall have to be content with a demonstration on paper. Last evening I read In the Voice of February 4, published In New York, an article under the heading "Striving for a Union," giving an account of a confer ence called by Miss Wlllard, and held In the Sherman house in Chicago, to dis cuss the possibilities of a union of forces In the coming national campaign. Well so far, good enough. Discussions are good, sometimes as amusement for idlers, sometimes informing the Ignorant and sometimes Inciting the Indifferent to earnest work. But 1 would like to know what we are to understand by two indi viduals whom the labor reform parties have considered as a possible Moses and r Joshua in the contest of 92, attaching their signatures to resolutions drafted and adopted by a committtee appointed by this conference; of course there Is noth thing to bind anyone by the action here taken, but 8ometimea trifles indicate more to follow. Have those Individuals lost faith in the cause they have been ad vocatlng? Are they trying to carry water on both shoulders, or were they merely dazed and awed into submission by the presence of a few "wlmmen sisters," who seem to carry more grit than grace. I think great honor is due the two gen tlemen who had firmness of principle enough to express themselves as dissatis fied with the conference, saving that the People's party cannot afford to adopt prohibition at present. I can't for the life of me see why the leaders in the Pro hibition party are so persistent In their determination to dictate for the People's party; they have no interests in common, but ever since the People's party conven tlon at Cincinnati they have shown their ticket, rule or ruin. I belonged to the Prohibition party in Kansas until the organization went under In my neighbor hood, and I think that as a political party it is a failure. I have been for forty years connected with temperance soci eties and I believe In temperance In all things, but I think If the People's party surrender to this hobby it will cause a division and defeat. This of course would bring rejoicing to the enemy. . I think there Is an opening just now for a big slap at the Voice They con sider It a terrible disgrace to Influence votes with a glass of whiskey or a cheap cigar. I agree with them In that, but elec tion whiskey don't cost much when bought in quantity. The Voice claims that every column of their paper costs the publishers one dollar and yet they propose to send a great number of Voices to Alliance farmers every week for six months free of cost if their victims will promise to vote the Prohlb ticket In No vember next See, like the killing of men in western Kansas, lately, it didn't matter who was killed, but it did make an all-fired difference what party did the killing.
