CONVENTION Nations of the World Are Uniting Efforts in Great Temperance Movement—Growth of Order lias Been Wonderful. the TON ' Oct. 18. —Since Ihe first *9® * e ' of W omen in the field of ' pp|iran^ s0(?ial re form there has ' demonstration as from afar, with Hon. secretary of -litics ever been such , „hielt began in Boston today. » occasion is the seventh triennial vention of the World s Woman's risttan Temperance Union, which ushered in today with an all service of prayer in the vestry /park Sheet church.

In the absence ,. [j^jy h' iiry Somerset, the presi dent of the world's organization, the fessions will be presided over by Mrs. L M N. Stevens of Maine, president cf the National W. C. T. U.. The magnitude of the organizations which are participating in this con vention is hard to realize, and com pared with their modest beginnings their growth is little short of mir aculous. Thirty years ago or more such a thing as a woman's temper ance union was unknown. Through out the United States and in England there were a number of temperance societies, but they were distinct from each other and worked independently. Even in those days there were some who dreamed of having all the socie ties combined under one head, to found one grand nonsectarian union which would take in every prohibition so ciety in the world. Miss Frances E. ■Willard was the leading spirit in this movement, and her associates num bered women scarcely less qualified than herself for their chosen work. Among them were Mrs. Louise Rounds of Chicago, Mrs. Mary Clement Lea vitt of Boston, Mrs. Mary A. B. Wood bridge of Cleveland, Mrs. J. Ellen Fos ter of Washington, Mrs. Lillian M. N. Stevens of Maine and Miss Julia Coleman of New York. Tremont Coleman of New York. In 1874 Jheir dream came true and the cherished hope of a woman's tem perance union was a reality. Its suc cess was assured from the start. Lo cal unions sprang up all over America, and these were federated into state and provincial organization. After Canada and the United States and England was the next to fall into line, but, though she adopted the American system, she chose to be known by the name of the "British Woman's Temperance association,'' there being some objection to the word ''union." But the English prov ed themselves none the less ardent workers, and today there are chanches in every country in England, Scotland and Wales. The comprehensive program arran ged for the present convention tells a story of good work done and'doing.
