Platform of the National Prohibition
Adopted at the Chicago Convention, Sept'r.
2, 1869.
Whereas, Protection and allegiance are
' reciprocal duties, and every citizen
who yields obedience to the just com
mands of his government is entitled
: to the full, complete and perfect pro
tection of that government in the en
joyment of personal security, person
al liberty, and private property, and
Whkreas, The traffic in intoxicating
drinks greatly impairs the personal
security and personal liberty of large
masses of citizens, and renders pri
vate property insecure, and
Wberras, The existing parties are
hopelessly unwilling to adopt an ad
. equate policy on this question, there
fore we, in national convention as
sembled, as citizens of this free re
public, sharing in the duties and re
sponsibilities of its government, in
the discbarge of a solemn drty we
owe to our country and oar race,
unite in the following declaration of
?rinciples :
. That while we acknowledge the
jmre patriotism and profound states
manship of those patriots who laid
broad and deep the foundations of this
government, securing at once the
rights of the States severally and their
inseparable union by the Federal Con
stitution, we would not merely garnish
the sepulchers of our republican fath
era, but we do hereby renew our sol- J
fin pledge of fealty to the imperish
able principles of civil and religious
liberty embodied in the Declaration of
American Independence and our Fed
era! Constitution.
2. That the traffic in intoxicating
beerages is a dishonor to tJhrietian
civilization, inimical to the best inter
ests of society, a political wrong of un-,
equaled enormity, subversive of the
ordinary objects of government, not
capable of being regulated or restrain
ed by any system of license whatever,
but imperatively demanding for its
suppression effective legal prohibition
both by State and National Legisla
tion. 3. That in view of this, and inasmuch
as the existing political parties either
oppose Or ignore this great and para
mount question, and absolutely refuse
to do anything toward the suppression
of the rum traffic, which is robbing the
nation of its brightest intellects, des
troying its material prosperity, and ra
pidly undermining its very founda
tions, we are driven by an' imperative
sense of duty to sever our connection
with these political parties, and to or
ganize ourselves into a National Prohi
bition Party,' having for its primary
object the entire suppression of the
traffic in intoxicating drinks.
4. That while we adopt the name of
the National Prohibition Party, as ex
pressive of our primary object, and
while we denonnce all repudiation of
the public dbt, and pledge fidelity to
the principles of the Declaration of In
dependence and the Federal Constitu
tion, we deem it inexpedient to give
prominence to other political issues.
5. That a Central Executive Commit
tee of one from each State and Terri
tory and the District of Columbia, be
appointed by the. Chair, whose duty it
shall be to take such action as in their
judgment will best promote the in
terests of the party.
Washington County.
Thn following is clipped from the
llarietban, of the22nd:
"We are reliably inronned, tht the tem
perance element ef the county is keeping
'watch and ward on the banks of the
Chine," quietly waiting, to see what manner
of men are presented as candidates by tne
respective party conventions about to be
bold. They bare determined that only
men of decided temperance convictions tnd
habits shall be chosenr(to office Whether
or not such a course, nnder present circum
stances, is wise their intention to pursue
it is none tne less nxea ana aeiermtnea. ;,
this view interested as we are in the pre
rrvauon Ol pun mvnii, cuvoi dhi co
incide. The practice of the political par
ties to base their nominations open tem
porary expediency and availability, al we
have seen evidenced by notable exsnples
in our midst, has awakened the hitherto
sluggish friend's of good order te a deter
mination to make active and energetic ef
forts to repair the evils resulting from their
former eupineness. If our politicians are
wise, they will be more cautious than they
have hitherto been in their nominations.
Only by such a course can they prevent a
third ticket, whicn will sweep the deck.
Should they not do so, and neglect the
warn i tie voice which fills the air, bv mak
ing some contemplated nominations and
renominatioas. they will loss their power
in. this county and senatorial honor and
legislative whisky will vanish like the mist
before tne aau, at toe uprising oi the men
or reform.
We are reliably inforrued that
the prospect for a Prohibition coun
ty ticket in Washington County is
good, whatever may be the charac
ter of the men nominated by the old
parties. Temperance men in Wash
ington County as well as elsewhere,
are beginning to feel that temper
ate men elected to office by the old
parties, and of course elected in
part through the influence ot the
dram-shops, will be governed to a
great extent by the dram-shop el
ement. This renders even- temper
ate officers but the tools eft be dram
ebopt, and makes them give tem
perance measures the cold shoul
der. It is probable, however, that
the old parties iri Washington
County, will truckle to the liquor
element in their nominations,, as
they have done elsewhere-,
Tad" Li.ncoln, youngest eon of
the lata President .Lincoln, died in
Citistigo od the 5.5th.
Athens County.
As soon as Dr. Solomon Howard,
Pi evident of Ohio University, was
nominated for State School Com
missioner by the Prohibition Slate
Convention, the .Republicans of
Athens County began to take steps
to prevent the organization ol a
Prohibition ptrtv in that county
Temperance meetings were held.
speeches were made, and gresi in
terest was manifested in the tem
perance cause; but care was always
taken, by those who manipulated
the meetings, to denounce the exist
ing Prohibition parly as premature.
Atone of these meetings the reso
Intion, adopted by the ilcConnela-
villo Herald as its platform, was
passed, and it was thought by the
enemies of Prohibition that that
resolution would settle the question
in Athens County. The pro
gramme was, of course, plainly
marked out. They would pass the
resolution pledging themselves not
to vote for any one in the habit of
using intoxicating liquors as a bev
erage, the .Republican Stato Con
vention would nominate none bin
strictly sober men, and then they
would get up a ulrictly temperate
set of men as candidates for Athens
County officers. ' They could then
say to the Prohibitionists of Athens
County, "We are as good temper
ance men as you are, wo support
none but temperance men tor office";
and by such means tiiey inloi.dtd
to crush the effort to establish u
party in Athens county that is
pledged to tho extirpation ot the
liquor traffic. But the best laid
plans sometimes fail ben the lime
comes to execute them, and such
has proved to be the case in this
instance. The resolution was pass
ed, but the Republican State Con
vention thought the lager beer ana
whisky vote of more account than
the temperance vote, and, con
sequcntly nominated Muoiler, a
German hberalist, ana believer in
free lager and free Sabbaths, for
Lieutenant Governor, James Wil
liams and S R. Hosmer, men in the
habu of using intoxicating liquors
as a beverage, one for Auditor of
State, and the other for Member of
the Board of Public Works. But
the change m the programme did
ootend with the action ot the He
publican State Convention. On the
15th instant, the Athens (Jounty
Republican Convention met and
nominated a tounty ticket, and put
on that ticket one Parker Carpen
ter for Sheriff. This Carpenter is
notoriously known to be a drink-
ng man, and was nominated over
one A. J. Reynolds, who bears the
reputation of bing a thoroughly
temperate man. For some weeks
previous to th convening of the
County Convention, there was con.
siderable excitement on the ques
tion as to who should be the nomi
nees of the Convention, and the
county was thoroughly canvassed
by the candidates. On the 4th ot
July this Carpenter was at Ames-
ville electioneering, and be told nis
friends there, as we are credibly
informed, that be bad "no money
to distribute among them, but that
he bad plenty of whisky in bis car
riage that they cool 4 one as might
seem to them best." We wonder,
now, if the men that passed the res
olution above spoken of, will sup
port Mueller, illiams and Hosmer,
on the Slate ticket, and Carpenter,
on their County ticket. It strikes
ns that the rrobibitionisu oi
Athens County should not allow the
political tricksters of that County
to deceive the people further. Or
ganize a party at once, call a Coun
ty Convention, and nominate a
ticket that tou can consistently
vote for.
The German Cry of "Down
with the Observance of the
The representatives of twenty
bree German Societies, of Cincin
nati, who are incensed at the at
tempted enforcement ot the Sun
day laws in Cincinnati, which close
np the dram shops and beer gar
dens of tbe city on Sundays, met
in that city en Saturday evening
last, and passed the following reso
lutions: i?ccrf. Tbst the Question whether the
individual citiaen shall observe a day of
rest trom labor, and what day he shall sel
ect for such observance, or whether be shall
do business or labor or abstain from it on
any day, is not a public question to be reg
ulated by legislative enactments no more
than the question what hats or elithea be
shall wear, but a strictly private matter,
tbe determination of which should be left
to his own conscience, views of propriety,
interests or desires.
Resolved. That the so-called Sunday laws
and ordinances requiring men to rafrsin
from common labor, and making it a penal
offense te do act on Sunday which are law
ful on any other day of the week, and which
do cot interfere with the public peace or
tbe rights and liberties of anybody, must
be considered an encroachment upon indi
vidual rights, incompatible witb the spirit
ol our stste constitution.
Resolved, That these laws cannot be uni
formly and impartially enforced, and that
a partial or arbitrary enforcement of any
law conferring privilegee and immunities
on some branches of business or industry,
or on some particular avocation, and also
on certain elasses or tne people, which im
munities are denied to other branches and
avocations, most be considered a violat'on
of the principles of republican equality and
of "equal and exact justice to all."
Betolved. That the question whether or
how to observe a day of rest might and will
in its general features be regulated by cus
tom, like the observance of the 4th oi July,
and Christmas and New Tear's holidays,
without lej islative interference with pri
vate affairs or infringement of personal lib
erty. jlesclved. That, for these reasons, we, the
undersigned citizens of Cincinnati, respect
fully petition the common council ot the
said: city to repeal the Sunday ordinances
now ic force, tbe same being ent .rely su
perfluous, even from the staodpoiot of their
advocates, as the ground has been fully
covered by acts passed by the state legis
lature regarding this subject.
Resolved, That we shall use all lawful
means to secure tbe repeal of the Sunday
and temperance laws, now on the statute
books, by applying to candidates el all par
ties and organizations for the legislature
for aa expression of their views on the sub
ject, and endeavoring to elect only such
men aacoiucide with as in opinion, and
that for this purpose th organisation effect
ed by the different societies- and associa
tions of Cincinnati will be permanent until
eur object shall be accomplished.
The above resolutionssbow plain
ly what German liberalism is, and
also what tbe old polKi'sad parties
are track ling to. The reason Gen
eral Noyce. Republican candidate
for Governor, and Samuel V. Hunt,
Democratic candidate for Lieaten
ant Governor, and Judge Geddes,
Democratic candidate for Supreme
Judge, would aot address a tem
perance meeting t Springfield, as
spoken of elsewhere in this paper,
was because they were afratd of of
fending such men as passed the
above resolutions. The reason why
the Republican tarty nominated
Mueller, of Cleveland, who is also a
German Hberalist, and wbu believes
in the free sale of lager on Sunday,
for Lieutenant Governor, was be
cause that party wanted to please
just such men as passed the above
resolutions, and, thereby, get their
votes. V hat can temperance men
expect of parties that are thus con
trolled in their actions bv men who
are opposed to the legal observance
of tbe Sabbath?
Here We Have It.
Among the telegrams to the Cin
cinnati Enquirer, of lhe22d, wwfind
the following:
Springfield, Ohio, July 21, 1871.
Arrangements have been made for the
holding of a grand mass temperance meet
ing at the fair grounds on the 27th of the
present month. A large number of invita
tions have been issued, and large delega
tions are expected to be present from Xe
nia, Dayten, Greenville and other places.
The list 'of speakers includes, among ethers,
Chaplain B vers, Rev. Charles Ferguson and
ColonelJames, of Urbsna. Hon. J. K.
Mower. General Noyss, Samuel F. Hunt
and Judge Geddes wre invited, but have
declined to speak. Fifteen thousand peo
ple are expected te be present.
The position of the old party
leaders and candidates on the tem
perance question, was never better
shown np than in the brief pispaK-h
i.bove- qaiied. General Koyes,
S 'Tiiud i Hunt and Judge Geddes
vere incited, but declined to speak."
Who art thecc ijt"!itlin-ii ? Gener
al Noyet is the Republican candi

F. Hunt is the Democratic candi
date for Lieutenant Governor of
Ohio; Judge Geddes is the Demo
cratic candidate for Judge of the
Sapreme Conrt ot Ohio. Why did
they decline to speak to a gather
ing of fifteen thousand of their fel
low-citizens 7 .Because they Were
as ifed to speak en the question o!
temperance, which thev ore afraid i

through fear of the power and in

box. We a6k temperance men if it
is not time for them to organise as
a third party, when they see such
evidences as this of the power and
influence of the dram-shop over
the old parties and their candidates?
One year ago, Judge Geddes, the
Democratic candidate for bupreme
Judge, was aot afraid to address a
temperance meeting; he was almost,
it not quite, a Prohibitionist, and
declared himself so to be in public
addresses. Now, however, we see
him the candidate for a party that
depends for success ou securing a
portion of the dram shop vote, and
we also find him truckling to that
Tote in tbe basest manner. There
are men in our mid6t, too, thai
would have you believe that Gen
eral Noyes, the Republican candi
date tor Governor, is as good a tem
perance man as anybody; but yet
wo find bis mouth sealed on the
great question, and afraid to speak
upon it through fear of hurting his
prospects and those of his party.

Visions of the Soul.
Under tbe above heading, the
following article appeared in the
Pittsburgh Clunsttan Advocate, of ihe
22nd. As it bears upon a matter
which occasioned considerable dis
cuepion through our columns last
Spring, we publish it :
Rev. Dr. Oliver S. Munsell, Pres
ident ot Illinois Wesleyan Univer
sity, was, years ago, driving in a
carriage alone across an ai:iettled
prairie. It was a ullry July day.
He tell into a light slumber. He

him: "Did you get our letters, and

sciolists, and under tbe names of
clairvoyance, animal magnetism,

bave deterred thoughtful men alto
gether too much from an investi
gation intosuch phenomena. This
is wrong. This unread page of our
history is entitled to an investiga
tion. Each new case may have its
light to shed on facts as yet un
known. It is in this spirit of a
learner that we call attention anew
to the case of Emaline Taylor, whose
experiences when in a trance-state,
eight months ago, were given by
the llev. H. Sinsabaogh in these
columns, and who is reported now
as in a tranco state lor the thira
time. Her own account of what
shosawand beard in the first in
stance we bave long bad in the of
fice; and we propose now to make
some extracts from it. Sne thus
begins her narrative:
On Sabbath evening, November 20,
ima I went to church at Kelley's sta
tion, to hear Rev. J. N. FerBhiBg:
preach. Ater preaching there was an
invitatioa given for those who desired
to forsake their sins and flee the wrath
to come, to present themselves at the
altar for prayer and instruction. On
ly one man went at first. After the
singing of the invitation hymn the
pastor gave an earnest exhortation
and plead with sinners to come to
Christ. Hiswerds teaehed my heart
and the Spirit of Ood strove powerful
ly with me. I arose and went for
ward to the altar; and while pleading
with God for mercy my prayer was an
swered, my burden of guilt removed,
and in a moment all was light and glo
rious around me.
J I immediately became unconscious to
I the outer world. A bright and shin-
ing being, whom I knew at once to be
my Savior, came and took me by the
nana, and we walked together on a
bright and narrow path for some time,
when we came to a river. Here I saw
what appeared to be a ship. The Sa
vior then helped me on it, and the
ship moved without oars, across to the
other side. While crossing, the Savior
stocd by my side, and held me by tbe
hand. When we reached the other
side we stepped off the ship together,
and the Savior then said to me, 'Now
tou are on the evergreen shore." We
then continued our journey on a nar
row path until we came to the gates of
heaven, inesewe passed and went
down a dark, dark path for a long way,
and at tne end we came to a place
where it was written in large, large
letters "Bottomless Pit!" The door
was shut and all around was dark as a
dungeon. Although I cou'd not see
the inhabitants of theplace yet I could
hear them distinctly, and distinguish
what they said. They were smiting
upon their breasts; cursing and swear
ing; cursing tne day oi their birth, and
all in sne voice together. They were
wrestling, wrangling, and making tne
most norrioie and hideous sounds ev
er heard. It was beyond description.
I then asked the Savior if I might tell
brother Henry about that place of tor
ment He told me I might MX him
once and exhort him to leave the Uni
versalis! Church, for those who added
to or took rom the Bible would have
their names taken out ot the Lamb's
Book of Life,
The Savior then took me by the hand
and led me back to the gates ot hea
ven, lie opened tne eates and we
went in and on to the door. (There
was a short distance from the gate to
the door.) The door appeared teopen
both ways like folding doors. When
we came to them the Savior threw
them wide open; but wou'd not let me
go in. 1 then stood at the door where
had a full view of all the inhabit
ants of the place. I could see all they
1 '
doing and hear all they said,
wero all sincing together. I
could distinguish their words as thev
ton a Ihuin "Rl,, Ul 11,. I .nt r
tiixl. "Holy, holy, holy is the Lord.
"I'raise Jesus." They all had instru
ments on which they played the sweet
est music They were all clothed in
white and shining raiment and had
names in their foreheads which I
could not read. . I wanted to go in and
join them, but the Savior said, "Not
now; but if yon be faithful, keep my
commandments and never backslide,
you may come in in a few years." I
recognized readily all those that I had
ever seen en earth who had died Chris
tians. And all the children were there
that had died in our neighborhood
without an exception.
Her narrative here mentions the
names of many children, and also
the names of many she had known
as Christians on the earth. Among
the name) mentioned aro those of
Rot. A. H. Thomas, late of the
Pittsburgh Conference, and of a
Rev. Bro. White, of tho old Prcsby-1
terian Church. A Philip Dean was
also seen, not while on earth a mom
be r of any church, nor professor of
religion; but he had given his heart
to the Savior, so bcr conductor in
formed her, three weeks before he
died. Having compressed several
pages of the narrative in these few
sentences, we return onco more to
the words of the nsrrutor:
I then began to view tbe place. Its
gates were of gold. Above the door
were letters written that I could net
read. But it would be useless to try
to describe -it; for no tongue can ex
press tbe glory of the place. I asked
the Savior when it would benight; and
he said, "There is no night here. I
am the light ef this place;" and added,
"there is no sickness, sorrow, pain,
nor death here." I asked him what
the tree of life meant, and he laid his
hand on his breast and said, "I am the
tree of life." The Savior stood at the
door and as the inhabitants entered he
put palms in their hands and placed
crowns on their heads, and said to each,
"Well done of thy Lord," and pointed
in at the door and said, "In there is a
mansion waiting for you." While
standing at the door, I saw three men
and two small children enter; and the
."avior put palms of victory in their
hands and placed crowns of glory on
their heads. One man bad seven stars
in his crown; another, five; and the
other was starless. Then I asked the
Savior how it came that the men did
not have an equal number of stats in
their crowns. To which he shook his
head and made no reply. Tbe chil
dren he took in his arms and blessed
them, put palms in their hands and
placed crowns on their beads carried
them in, gave them instruments of
mnfiiiv Anrl IkMo nratsl him kIka

bane ot lituMiWii; he waa spit upon
and mked fc cr;wn of ,; n,
U(K big hwMi bllt now h(1 ig the Kng
f kings and l.ord of lords." The Sa
vior then returned to tbe door and I
asked him what that meant, and he
said, "Because it was the Sabbath day."
And then be said, "At nine o'clock
this evening you must return to earth."
I then asked him what be wanted me
to tell my class leader to do. He said,
"to love Him," I asked him what he
desired me to tell my pastor. He said,
"to eo into the world and preach my
gospel, and to cry aloud and spare, not

And he said, "Ion mast love me; keep
my commandments, and never back
slide, and then added, "Satan will
often tempt yon, but you must resist
him." I then asked bim if I would
tell Henry again about the Bottomless
Pit. He shook his head and said, "No;
you told bim once and he promised to
go with yon, but tbe promise was only
from the lir and not from the heart,
and if he will not believe for one tell
ing he would not believe if you wero
te tell him again;" and added, "My
Spirit will not always strive with man."
Tbe return and tbe way of return
are then described. The "same
ship" brought ber back to earthly
shores. Her divine Guide, in part-
ins from ber, enjoined upon ber to
be faithful and good. Her trance
state continued for a week. In clo
sing ber narrative she says: "Dur
ing this time which seemed 6bort,
I was fed with milk and honey, so
that I was neither tired nor hun
gry." Thus ends a statement of
ber experiences as taken from her
own lips. We have given some
what extended extracts from it, not
to gratify an rdle curiosity, but to
furnish philosophic thinkers an ad
ditional chapter on whioh to con
struct theories respecting this de
partment of our wonder world, and
so wrest it from the perversions tnd
bad uses to which it has been put
by clairvoyant! and spirit rapper.

merely that so many persons are the victims

lo say that any one regards dyspepsia with
favor, or feels disposed to rank it amontr
the luxuries ol life. Far from it. Those
who bave experienced its torments would
scoot atich an idea. Mark Tspley, who was

A Confirmed Dyspeptic I
Bat it is not nnr intention to descant on
he horrors of D;pepsia. We have said
that dispepsia is perhaps the most univer
sal ol human disease. This is emphatic

character of tbe food, tbe method of its
preparation, or tbe basty manner in which
it is usually swallowed, is not oar province
te explain. Tbe great fact with which we
are called to deal is this :

almost universally. Nearly every other per-,
son yoa meet is a victim, and apparently
a willing one ; for were not Ibis the case,
why so many sufferers, when a certain spe

reach of all who desire to avail themselves
of it T But the majority will not. Blind,
ed by pnjudice, or deterred by some other
unexplained influence, they refose to ac
cept the relief proffered them. They itra
a deaf ear to the testimony of the thorn
anda whose sufferings have been alleviated.
and with strange infatuation, appear Id
cling with desperate determination to their
ruthless tormentor. Bnt says a dyspeptic:

this wonderful medicine than can be learn

yourself, and when it bas failed to fu'SlJ
the measure of its efficacy given hy Ibe

Let it Be Remembered,
firt of H, that JIOOFLAKD'S German
Bitters is not a rum beverage. They are
not alcoholic in any sense of the term.
They are composed wholly of the pure juice
or vital principle of roots. This is not a
mere assertion. The extracts from which
they are compounded are prepared by one
of 1h ablest German cheevste. Unlike a
ny other Bitters in the marker, they are
wholly free from spirituous ingredients.
The objections which hold with so much
force against preparations of thisrlss.
namely that a deans for intoxicating
drinks is stimulated by their one. are not
valid in the case of the German Bitters.
So far from eocouragisg or inculcating a
taste or desire for inebriating beverages,
it may he confidently asserted that their
tendency is in a diametrically opposite di
rection. Their effects can be

qua I, noting promptly and vigorously upon
the Liver ; they remove its torpidity and

supplying tbe stomach with the most indis
pensable elements ot sound digestion in
proper proportions. They give tone to the
stomach stimulating its fond ions, and)
enabling it to perform its duties as nature

nrities and snpplasrting tbem with the ele
ments of genuine healthfnlness. But in
that most generally prevalent, distressing,
and dreaded disease, Dyspepsia,
They Stand Unrivaled.
Now, t hers ars certain classes of persons
to whom extreme Bitters are not only an
palatable, but who find it impossible to
take them withont positive discomfort.
For such Dr. Hoqflanttt German Tonic baa
been specially prepared. This preparation
is not or.ly palatable, trot combines, in mo
dified form, all the virtues of the German
Bitter, la rases of languor or excessive
debility, where the system appears to bave
become exhausted of its energies. Hoo
flaad's Toole sets with almost marv
elous effect. It gives strength to weakness
and thro despondency te tbe winds.
But Dr. Unc.ffcBd's benefactions t tbshn-.

German Bitters, or hi invaluable

which is rapidly winaing way to pe polar
