l>ovcr. June 7 - The afternoon ses
sion of the anti-railroad meeting, which
was held here yesterday, was devoted
chiefly to a consideration of the tern- ;
perance question. It was decided to |
call upon the législature, at the extra |
session. In make good the local option
hill passed at the regular session, and in
the event of failure on the part ot the
législature to do so to put an inde- i
pendent ticket in the field this year and |
ask for the support of all voters who are ,
in favor of local option.
After the matter had been discussed '
at length and the législature denounced
for its failure to carry out pledges alleged
to have been made by some of the Hc
puhlican members before the election,
Whereas, We are in convention as
sembled to consider and confront the
criminal of the twentieth century—a
monster of fabulous powers ■ a demon
possessed of neither intelligence nor
conscience, but animated hy an infinite
preamble and resolutions
instinct for death and destruction a
monster and demon petted, pampered
and protected by the paid guardians of
its unhappy victims; and
Whereas, The |iconic constitute the
State and in their collection capacity are
the government, and thereby possess in
herently and inalienably the right of self
protection, this right being specifically
conceded and provided for in our Dela
ware Constitution, in eonneetion with
the evils and infamies of the liquor traffic
under the title of "local option,"thus
giving the people within legal linea the
constitutional light to vote on the ques
tion of "license" or "no license"; and
Whereas, A majority of the members
of our present législature were elected
by voters pledged to vote for no one who
was not favorable to local option, and
who Ihemselvee, in advance of their
election, pledged their support for such
a measure; and
Whereas, The representative« of the
dominant political party in the State, in
both branches of the législature, were
additionally and thoroughly pledged to
support an enactment of such a law, by
the insertion of a local option plank
the platform adopted by tneir State con
Whereas, The members of the Legisla
ture thus elected, frankly acknowledged
their obligations to the temperance
the State, and apparently
most formal and deliberate
proceeded in a
manner to redeem their pledges and
promises hy preparing and passing a so
called local option bill, which however,
died before it was born, and, while every
effort was made, to galvanize it into a
seeming reality, remained destitute of
all the essential qualities and ingredients
of legal vitality; and.
Whereas, 'lhe presumption, dictated
by that charity that "thinketh no evil,"
is favorable to the honesty and sincerity
of these legislators who thus planed them
selves under pledge and promise to the
temperance people of the Slate, and who
in Inn subséquent regular session of the
Legislature publicly displayed what was
supposed to lie a genuine attachment to
ami support of the principles of local
Whereas, It would bo unjust to at
tribute the wide-open
tinnality of (he so-called
bill, to the bel rayai of the people hy
these pledged legislators, under the
sinister influence of corrupt party bosses,
or of the powerful lobjiy in the paid
service of the liquor interests, without
giving the said legislators an opportunity
prove their sincerity and honesty;
therefore be it
unconst it u
Resolved, That this convention calls
upon the executive committee of the
T tel* ware Stale Temperance Alliance
to present this utterance, in the most
effective manner available, to the mem
bers of both branches of the Legislature
now sitting in extra session and demand
that they immediately make good their
preelection promises and their subse
quent professions of good faith and thus,
perfect and consummate the work which
they so imperfectly performed during
their regular session
Resolved, That it is the sense of this
convention that in caae these pledged
legislators refuse to make an honest and
earnest effort to deliver to the people of
Delaware the local option legislation
which they promised and professed to
give, then the self respecting x-oiers of
(his Stale will be justified in believing
that they are the victims of a deliberate
