Merrill's Argument from A Bishop S. M. Merrill's Argument from A Moral and Religious Standpoint-Extract from a Letter Written by Him on the 27th of August, 1885, and In the Chicago Inter-Ocean on August 29th. riiriL' nrt' two mwthoils of pioct'iluro open to the fticnd.s of pt-ohiliitinii. The one it) with nml the other is without separate political oi(;nnizntion. AVliich is preferable ? Undoubtedly tlmt wliieh promises the permanent Huceess of the cause, in the sliorteHt time, and with the least friction ami animosity. It may be that sonic cherish the con jecture that both methods, substantially, enn be employed ; but this is a delusion. If we adopt the party method we must adhere to it, and make it successful by party methods, or we must fail. There is no such thine; us securing the sympa thy and co-operation of the Rood men in the other parties without inducing them to abandon their party alliliations and join the new party which we propose for them. It needs no argument to show that this is an undertaking of such mag nitude that generations will be required to accomplish it. The usual argument in favor of this method is that the separate-party organi zation was successful in the old contest with slavery. This is unsupported as sumption. The separate-party vote only strengthened the hold of the pro slavery power, and gave it such assured control of the government as to intensify the contempt it entertained for the op position. The separate patty did not succeed. Providence interposed, cir cumstances changed, old party lines were disrupted and the slave power was broken by lnlluences which no man can trace to any separate political organiza tion. Tho analogy is not complete. The precedent docs not apply. The fallacy is manifest. It remains that no great reform, involving moral elements, has ever been successfully carried out in this country through the agency of sepa rate political organization. This does not prove that such an ach ievement will forever remain impossible, but it suggests the necessity of serious iniuiry before assuming the practica bility of a movement incumbered with so many grave dillieulties, and fraught with such questionable elements. One of the serious objections to this plan is that it can not eoncentrato the temperance sentiment of the country. In spite of fate anil good intentions it will alienate men by hundreds anil thousands whose moral instincts are right and whoso influence might be secured for prohibition on any plan that simply appeals to their consciences as men, as citizens and as Christians. This battle is too great to be fought by factions. It requires union, wisdom, prudence, as well as courage and persist ence. The old Liberty party, of which so many fine things have been said, never enrolled more than a small frac tion of the onti-slavery sentiment of the country and therefore never became formidable. The Prohibition party in its party organization includes only about three per cent, of the prohibition sentiment. The votes it casts will not amount to that much. In the State of Ohio, for instance, under very unfavora ble circumstances, the direct vote for constitutional prohibition was Hl'IOOU, while tho vote for party candidates was about 11,000. This is less than three per cent., and the proportion is not but ter in other places. In such leading Prohibition States as Kansas and Iowa the ratio is much smaller. It isa mere faction. It leaders are earnest and zealous, but they do not command the following needed for suc cess. Modesty isa virtue which in iUelf is not less beautiful because the leaders of this faction fail to cultivate it. It is not to be assumed that wisdom is always with majorities, but it is scarcely to bo believed that this very small majority in the ranks of prohibitionists have ac quired a monopoly of this grace. In the multitudes of the non-partisan friends of the cause there are some whoso judg ments ought to entitle them to respect ; yet, in the clamor of the politicians, ull voices are drowned which do not shout the praises of "the management." Pru dence is pronounced cowardice. Con ciliatory methods are derided as com promises with Bin. Kvery practical measure w hich seeks the co-operation of those who abide in their old political associations is set at naught as lacking in principle Tho result is that much the larger number of prohibitionists aro ignored and the small minority stand out before the public as the representa tives and strength of the cause, while tho chief supporters of tho public senti ment which must ultimately achieve the victory, deplore the unwisdom of this state of things, and patiently and sadly wait tho coining ot tho day when the battle for prohibition will bo pitched upon ground broad enough for all its real friends to stand upon, and wlieio they can light tinder a leadership strong onough to concentrate all available forces. Constitutional provisions should never be made tho basis of party organiza tion. Tho organic law of the State and the nation ought to have the support of th iiatrint.ii' citizens of all narties. Tho only way to secure this end is to avoid thrusting platforms into tho constitution. Prohibition of the liguor trallic can not be permanent till it is in the constitu tion, and it cannot go into the constitu tion as a party measure. It is too broad for a party. hike the fundamental nriucipals of tho government, it must be the common ground of the better classes in ull parties : like the common school system, it touches interests too vital to tho common weal to be made tho foot ball of politicians. Parties divide on in terpretations of tho constitution, not on the constitution itself. Intrepertations from politics, and party issues relate to policies. This is tho legitimate battle grounds of politics. But, there it) a realm of principle beyond the conflicts of parties, where tho mortal characters of the government rests upon the founda tion of right where the enduring ele ments of Christian civilization chrysta lize in organic law ami to Hint broader realm of essential right this question of prohibition must come. Another serious objection to the party features is that it renders it inexpedient and improper for the churches to take the active part in the advocacy of the causo that is desirable. When the party is organized, with candidates in the field, the conferences, svnoils, associa tions and conventions of the churches can not and will not give indorsement to the measures proposed. There are excluded by the nature of the constitu tion, ami must stand aloof, as ecclesias tical bodies, whatever individuals in their communions may think or desire. It also silences the pulpit to a very great extent. Ministers who regard the sacreduess of their calling will not turn their pulpits into electioneering ros trums. They can not do it in good con science, nor ought they to be expected to tlo it. While prohibition stands upon its merits as n question of essential right, aU'ecting individuals, families, society, and the public welfare, with no party machinery attached, it is open for free discussion in pulpits, churches, con ferences and synods, where the whole power of the moral sentiments of these agencies may Jie brought to its support ; but the act of narrowing it down to a political party contest cuts oil" all these, or requires them to go out of their sphere, ami risk division and strife and the loss of much ot their influence in the endeavor to do in an undersiable way what they would tlo heartily in the absence of tho party entanglements. It is also in accordance with preced ent to expect that as soon as the party gains a little standing, so as to promise to hold the "balance of power," it w ill be overrun by a class of men w hose in fluence will not add to its reputation or moral standing. Disgruntled politicans of every grade will drop into it. Ambi tious ollice-scokers will rush for the leadership. Modest men of moral worth will find themselves overborne by the clamorous zeal of political bank rupts, who have nothing to lose and everything to gain in whatever fortune comes to the party. In a word, then, the writer, alter forty years of active work in the temperance cause, and as an advocate of every meas ure that promises restriction to the liquor trallic. and looking with grateful appreciation upon the growth of that moral sentiment w hich promises consti tutional prohibition, deeply regrets the cll'orts to remove this ereat question from its proper place in the churches. the homes, the schools, and the unparti san gatherings of the people, ami identification with a political partv where his own, and hundreds of thousand of other voices must be hush ed or uninlluential for good. He pro tests in the interests of the cause itself is a cause w hich has been sacred to him from childhood a cause which is higher and holier than any party, and broader than any political platform. Ho would never ask any existing party to adopt it as a party measure, and would never encumber it with a partv organization. Hundreds of thousands in both the old parties will vote for prohibition, but will not go out of their parties to do it. Wise management will hold it where appeal can be made to men to support it, re gardless of party, on tho broad ground of morality, humanity nnd public utility, remembering that two-thirds of tho real legislation of the country is non-partisan in its character, and that it is a mistake to suppose that this great measure must have a political party behind it to make it successful.

Kh orig inal inline, no doubt was Murray. How or why it became changed, in Homo of lis branches, into Morrow, is shrouded in mys tery, nevertheless the family have their hypotheses. The truo theory no doubt is that tho change was brought about by u religious difference in tho family nt an early day while still in Ireland, when the Protec tant branch took the name of Morrow, while tho Catholic remained Murray. Then after the family emigrated to this country the bitterness between the factions died out nnd some of the Morrjws look the original name and still keep it. Whatever may huvo been tho cause, or means of the hiinge, that they are of the samo family, branches of tho samo parent stock, there can be no doubt, for they nro still in posses sion of an old family record in which the lianies Murray and Morrow aro both re corded, and that of two sisters, one born iu lsil, named Murray, nnd the other born iu lsll, uiinied Morrow. Now this change of lianio might bo made an interest ing study to this family, and it is hoped that they may bo enabled to solve tho mys tery of the name. But now to tho mnttor iu hand : Thin large and interesting family, held then third ro-uniou Aug. '20, lSK5, iu a beautiful grove ou the farm of Mr. John Morrow, About three miles southwest from l'iqiin. O.

Murray residing near Sidney, O., aged 75 years; Mrs. Eliza Barrero, of New Carlisle, O., aged li years, and Mr. James K. Morrow, of New Market, Highland comity, O., aged 118 years. By a special invitation of Mr. Geo. A. Murray, aud the kindly transportation fur nished by Mr. Mitchell Morrow, your re porter, Mr. Editor, was privileged to enjoy this grand festive occasion. Tho day was balmy, delightful, all that could have been desired. The native grovo of trees was beautifully sodded and tho shade delightful; a most charming place. Tho llnral decora tions wero artistic and lovely, aud the dinnor of meats, aud fowl, and fruits, nnd cakes, and pies, and jellies aud floats, aud coffee and ten, and lemonade, etc., etc. was rich, delicious and superabundant, defying description, and only needing to bo discussed to be enioyed. All things iu readiness, a fow taps of tho gong a tm pan Drought tno company old and young, ono and all, into tempting nearness to tho bountifully tilled tallies when Mr. Geo. A. Murray escorted ltev. J P. Shultz, Pastor of Graeo M. E. Church, Piquii, to tho head of the table, aul after making a few very appropriate remarks referring to their former reunions, the numbers present at each one, and those of them who had since died, and saying that whilo thero was no doubt a feeling of Bad ness occasioned by thoir absence, that yet there should be iu the hearts of all a sp..:' of thankfulness that so many were Bpared nnd permitted to bo present to enjoy this occasion, and of gratitude to the bountiful (river for such an abundant repast of which they wero then about to partake, he introduced Mr. Shultz to tho company, and callod upon him to oHer prayer. In response he returned thanks to God for his past favors and blessings upon all present, and espociully upon tho family whoso reuuiou thoy wero then holding, for the largo number, the industry, sobriety, iutolligouoo, good citizenship, Christiau character and life, and general prosperity of this family, and prayed that they should beconio none the less so iu any of these re spects but increase in all of them, so that at iast they may, without u missing link, bo gathered home and hold oue grand reunion iu tho sweet groves of the upper Eden. Dinner being ended, tho ltev. J. P. Shultz being called upon for somo remarks by way of introduction exhibited some family souvenirs.

Aud lastly, an old family Bible, printed in old English characters, supposed to bo about 150 years old. That tiiblo has a history. Although belonging to a staunch old Scotch-Irish Presbyterian family it was once immersed in the Scioto Hiver. Aud then the reverend gentleman, touch ing tenderly upon the saddening element iu such n gathering, the dear departed ones, referring to his former acquaintance with his dear friend of other years, Mr. Geo. A. Murray, proceeded to show how pleasant such occasions were, iu renewing old friendships, forming new ones, and cherish iug the hope of a more joyful reuuiou when time shall be over with us here. Now these family reunions are made pos sible, desirable, aud delightful, by nidus trv. economy, sobriety, and moral worth, ind bv these traits of character and lite they iuav be perpetuated to the end of timo The crowd was then eutertaiuea lor somo time by several choice selections of music by diilerent members of the family, utter which D.
