A Rpjoinder. Eilitor of Watrhman : In view of an arttele publisbed in your last week's issue, entitled " Misstateinenta Corrected," will you kindly allow space for tbe following from tbe lips and pen of tbe president of tbe National Woman's Cbristian Teiuper anoe Union, Miss Frances K. Willard? Tbe first appeal to tbe soeiety to beeome parti .san was made by tbe president, in ber annual address at tbe national eonvention in Washington, in tbe autumn of ishi . in ber autoblograpby "Oltmpsea of Plfty i'ears " page i"7, abe writes: "Wben I prepared uiy annual address tbis tbougbt came to me: ' For you to favor tbe probibi tion partv as an tndivldoal is one tbing, aml to ask tbe Woman's Cbristian Temperanee Union, in your otiieial address, to iudorse tbat party, is qulte anotber. Are yoi goinp to do it? Buob actlon will coat you muon Cood-will and many votes.' But a voioe from loftier regions said : ' You injhi t dtelart for Ihe party tffieUMy at well at iiuliritlmillu.' " From tbe presi dent's annual address at Pbiladelphia, in 188.ri, we take tbe following : " Tbe two parties are nationallv tbe two swom allies of tbe saloon. Tbe Wbite Itib bon Army is tbe opan tntmy 0 both, wbile t'.ns new movement (prohibltion party), wbieb, from tbe dislntegratlng foroea of tbe old gatbers out tbe best material for a new party, is tht OM tlmt han nr pntytn. our hopet, our loyalty, !, as we bave repeatedly deciared by resolutions, state and national, BUOb a movement (tbe probi bition party movement) ougbt to be, is it not our duty to htlpit to be .' ltcan not liring itself aDOUt, and we know tbat we ean lend it no small aid." At tbe Nasbville annual meetiug, in 1HH7, tbe propused non-partisan oonatltutlonal atnendmenl offered tbe year previous by Mrs. Foster was voted down. Tbe amendtnent read: "Tbis aSBOOiation shall be known as tbe National Woman's Cbristian Temperanee I nion, anil sball be non-sectarian in religioua aml non-partisan In politii al work." In rominenlinir on tbis aouonf Prealdanl WUIardsayt: "Tbe eon vention beld tbat our nou-sei tarian ebarai' terhad been tborougbly eatabllabed from tbe begltinlng, and as to belng non-partisan, it leatar jfrotn our intent, In St. Louii we had passeil tbe Rublcon forever, aml witb us it was a oaae ol sink or BWlrn, live or die, survive or perisb. I gtve my beari and band in lliisvote." Of tbe partisan attitude of tbe soeiety at tbe New Vork eonvention, in 1NSK, President Willard says, "Qlimpaea of Fifty V'ears," page 4H1 : "Tbe bonest, OUtapoken position of tbe soeiety in aaylng just wbat it uieaus, and being really a eoadjutor of tbe problbition party, oompelsreapeut, and we iimvi' forward to a Victory slow, but Hiire," ete., etc. " But tbat any eonsider- able advanoe in legialation will be aobiaved by tht' Jnirttt H'lt' rwst trr lnn'i- riousvtt, wbile it retainl its preaeQt name, I, for one, do not expect," Praaident Willard'a ad dress at tbis eonvention eontaius tbese words: " To-day our National Wonian's Cbristian Temperanee Jnlon, wblla reoog nlling tbe liberty of eacb state to be par tisan or not, as it eleets, is praetieally partisan, witb exeeptions so small tbat tbry luit prove tbe beunty of tbe rule. At Wasbingiou, in IHtil, I tirst urged tbe ad vautage tO our eommou rause of an alliauee between tbe Womau's ('bristian Tempi'r- anee I'nion and ti- probibttlon party, wblob had tben pollad but teu tbouaand votes as its maximum after a itroggla of ten years' duration. Steadily we bave moved forward in tbese years, until, as Cbief-justiee Waite said of probibition, so we ean say of our oneness in purpose witb tbe probibition party: ' Tbat is uo lonjjer an open quattioo in tbis eoiirt.'
