WHY I AM A PROHIBITIONIST Editor News: I am a prohibitionist because: I can not be a christian man and be for sa loons to run anywhere in Tennessee or in any other state. This state bat been making laws to allow men to make liquor, sell liquor, ship liquor, get drunk on it, and at the same time put license gohigh.onthe manufacture and sale of it, until no man can handle it in any way without violating the law, but our laws and our state offic ials are corrupt in allowing it made or sold, and the people want it so. A man that gets drunk is not fit or com petent to fill an office in Tennessee or in the United States from the least county office to the presidency. I vot eed in the convention for Mr. Car inack because he set forth the principle of state-wide prohibition. I was for it then andj am for it now. Some peo ple are for prohibition until the day of the election and then they are not near the ballot box. A man that gets drunk will lie, will curse, will steal, will vi olate toe law. Some of these men will get down on their knees and pray "Thy kingdom come; thy will be done on earth," and then walk right up and . votejust as quick to elect a drunken governor or infidel president, and then some of you will say it dsesn't matter what you believe nor bow you believe so we get a high tariff and two or three towns in Tennessee have suprem acy over the entire state in the manu facture and, sale of liquor. The best men in Tennessee voted for Carinack. I am for prohibition because I want night riding to cease and murder de creased and drunkenness and lying, stealing and lawsuits decreased, and officers decreased and crime decreased and blood decreased and lawyers de creased and preachers decreased and ministers of the Lord Jesus Christ in creased. Be sober. Liquor and our votes for saloons at the ballot box is manufacturing drunk ards and filling hell full of unwashed souls of men and some women, for no drunkard can enter Heaven. "Woe be unto that man that giveth his neighbor drink and woe be unto that city that buildeth its nation with blood." The time has come for us to raise up against liquor and the saloon pow er will be defeated. Mr. Carmack's influence will live and prohibition will come. I believe that liquor was the cause of Mr. Carmack's death. I would take a rattlesnaice in my house to play with, as quick as I would take a newspaper that advocated the right to make or sell liquor in this state. It will only be a little while until some of the leaders of Joe Smith and Brig ham Young's liquor rottenness will be gin to scream out: "My fellow citi zens, I am now standing by the grand old party and solicit your vote and in fluence and am for anything, especial ly saloons." The awful influence that liquor has had over this nation iu shed blood would paint the earth with blood. The man votes and says it is not me, but the man makes it, and the man who sells it, and the man who gets drunk, each lays the blame on the other. This is our national sin and death to .all who vote for it anyhere and every where. ' K V. B. Beersheba Springs, Tenn. , GREAT MUSIC OFFER.
