And the diamonds were brought from the

Delivered before the State Prohibit ion Convention
in CduiiHia.
Forty years ago one of the wisest
men of that day said there were titr?e
groat questions waiting their solution
by the American people?War, Sla
very, Intemperance. Since that dale
several of the strangest and bloodies!
wars that deface the page of history
have occurred. Just now, standing
near a fresh grave adorned with
trophies from the noble Queen of
England, and with several Courts of
the Old World in mourning for our
President, we might almost suppose
that a war between any two leading
nations of the world is impossible
The brilliant and daring writer. John
l??s?dt?, has said that the women of
Christendom can stop war whenever
they carncst?y resolve to do so. We
do not propose to speak to women
tc-night. But whatever of truth there
may be in Ruskirrs remark can be
applied to the subject before us.
They are the chief sufferers from both
of those great evils, War and Intem
p?rance, and they should use all
rightful interference to lessen them.
Slavery h;:s been effectually removed
from the long list of current issues.
Intemperance remains the question
of the hour; rather perhaps of the
age. Every social, political, religfous
circle has its problems and questions,
but perhaps no one subject within
the past few years has moved the
sympathies and efforts, the hopes and
fears of so many men and women as
?his great interest. At the Saratoga
meeting of the Seien tiQc Association,
a few weeks ago, three papers were
read, all emphasizing the evil, yet no
two agreeing on a remedy. One
writer advocated the License laws
substantially as found on our statute
books at present. Another proposed
to move forward to total Prohibition,
as license laws, after a trial of three
ceutuiics in England and of two cen
turies in this couuliy, have proved
insufficient. The third suggested the
repeal of existing laws and a resort to
heavier penalties on those drinking
to excess. These papcis well repre
sent the different opinions held by
those who agree in their estimate of
the evil.
Can anything more be done to keep
our people from liquor'/ This is a
plain way of putting a question now
revolved anxiously by many. Our
churches have done much to restrain j
and purify society in this, as in alt
other kindred respects. Lei the great
truth be never forgotten, that 'Kc
Iigk i is the only remedy for diseased
Stu*. s." In so far as the chu relics
train their members to practice that
temperance of the New Testament
which has respect to the life that is ;:
to come they most effoctu diy leach
the veiy narrow but very important
virtue of Temperance which relates
to the life lhat now is. A name on
the church roll does not necessarily
teach either the heavenly or the
earthly virtue. The regular attend
ant in his pew may be a punctual
customer at the bar. Yet the re
straining, educating influences of j
churches are felt far beyond the Hues !
of membership. On that influence j
we greatly rely. We claim as a j
friend every man and every woman j
whose life is a consistent rebuke to ;
Intemperance, whatever the individu j
liai opinion may be about this pledge
or that, this form of organization or
that: We fight against none who
fi^\\l against Intemperance. In this
case he that is not against us is on
our part. The enormity of the evil j
has led to enormous efforts to check
it. Perhaps as unwise things have
been said and done for the Temper
ance cause a* have been said and
done against ??. That is sure?? a :
wide and ample confession This i
cause is not straitened in its merits |
or its range of appeal : let it not be '
straitened in its advocates. It must '
be placed above stich tests as pass- j
words and regalia. Let those who j
can use these helps wisely and .
efficiently do so by a:i means Tlicy
ma}' in so doing nobly apply that,
favorite maxim of one of the wisest
philanthropist f on the page of his- ;
tory : "1 am made all things to all I
men, thai i might by all means save ;
sonic.-7 Let those who so pit!*.1" j
show that without these helps their
inihience eau be rightly given to the j
moral and social elevation ol the .
];?!!< :. and the exposed.
Much, very much may be dene by
the training of home. That young
man is to be Congratulated who enters '
lifo having no agreeable recollections
connected with social drinking. lie
is foi Innate who cannot enter even
the outer circles of dissipation with- :
out making a critical, an eventful |
departure from all his home teachings
and associations. That fallier is not
to be envied who, when he sees a y.>n
on the road to ruin from this vice, is ;
forced to say :
,:The thon;? which tear liie
Are from tin- seed 1 phuin d."
Next to these strong influences oT
the Church and Home we may expect '
much from the Press We are fcrtu- : 1
nate here in this respect. Tins
question is discussed gravely, earn- ;
estly by the papers of this State, ;
perhaps without an exception, per-j
tainly without a conspicuous excep- :
tiom Wo do not claim that all the j1
editors are in favor of any one form 1 <
of remedy. That is not to bo cx- i
pected. Jle must be a very foolish !
maw or an exceptionally wise one :
who is sure that he can drive this ;
audacious evil from a State or Nation 1
as easily as he can lay down laws for '
his individual life or for Iiis own 1
household. But it ia a great gain '
when all the newspapers read by our 1
people treat a great question seriously
and fairly, j ;
If we might select another pro- j
fession which lias great influence for ! '
good in educating our people on this
important question wo would name '
the physicians. The first attempt to <
arouse a public sentiment in this '
city a half century ago was well sup-- ;
ported by the medical gentlemen of '
that day?professional opinions from '
such men as Drs. Trezevant, Faust, ]
DcSaussurc, of Columbia, Dickson 1
I and Ivloultrie, of Charleston, were <
published. One sentence from Dr.
DeSausstire may be quoted : --In 1
cold climates if there be a reason or j 1
excuse for the use of ardent spirits, j 1
for which I am satisfied there is no j I
foundation, how much less is there in f i
our warm climate, where the system j i
is two-thirds ofthe year already under j ;
too great excitement ?7' j \
Through these agencies, aided by !
others; very much lias been done to j ;
educate the public sentnueut a:rl to ;
control the public practice. It may ! i
seem at times discouraging to sou l i
what remains to be done. But we ; !
may be impatient or short-sigh ted, i (
or we may have too little faith in !
Providence or in our race. There ; ;
are church os in thus State whose I ;
building lois were bought from the c
sales of lottery tickets. In the last <
generation a distinguished minister
in another State accepted the agency 1
of a vast lottery scheme, by which he 1
hoped to endow the well-known col- i
lege over which he presided. The 1
same minister once received as a t
New Years present, from the young 1
men of his charge, a cask of wine for '.
his personal use. Within the memory ]
of living men liquor was sold by good 1
Christian merchants as any 01 her 1
a' tide c> trade. A little earlier, 1
perhaps, it was the custom at funerals \
to distribute refreshments, spirits in- <
eluded. Tl 1-5 was done by servant ;
women dressed in white. The only :
relic of this usage is that still seen io i
our cities, at tiu>cs, when H;e proc?s- i
sion at a colored funeral is V-<\ by a i
few women dressed in white. These i
instances show that some-thing h::a \
been gained. Other, conquests re- \
main to encourage the labors of those j i
who may come after us. There is ! :
much encouragement in the maxim j c.
laid down by a great thinker : "The J 1
conscience of humanity sei lorn re- i i
stores any of its conquests " When j \
the conscience of humanity is stirred ! t
until it reaches a positive conclusion ' *.
it is not often that a mo!ion to recon- i
sider is entertained or offered; "The I
conscience ol tire American people"r ?:
is indeed a vague phrase, and shallow 1
and despairing men may try to sneer l
at it. But earnest men, thoughtful \
readers of past and'current history. \
know its power. The conscience of t
the American people is disturbed on I
the subject of Intemperance. There c
are too many earnest men and too f
many suffering women, too many "J
desolated homes interested in it to let i
that disturbed conscience go easily j ;
to sleep again. No temporary sue- : :
cesses here will satisfy it, no tempo- t
rary defeats there wiii qniet it. Our t
generation is moving steadily up to ]
moot this mighty evil. The people <:
are calculating its cost in money, v.
Tiny are appalled beforethc interests c
and results involved which money \
cannot measure. The terrible civil!::
war left the usual sediment all over ]: ]
our land. This rank soil has been ; c
favorable to the growth of many vices, ? (
especially Intemperance and Gam- 1
ing?twin vices from the same root? (
love of coarse and cheap excitement. ! t
Yet, within the forty years alluded I 1
to, some conquests have been gained I \
even in these troublous times. Very ; r
many cheerfully adopt as the rule of ! t
their life the se!fin:posed law of total ! c
abstinence. They know, that wisely 1
and fairly applied, it is hurtful to }
none, necessary to many and good for '
all. There is now an ample range of c
good society in which social drinking ,
is not practiced. There arc thou
sands of the happieS' In es in all 1 lie
laud where no guest .s led astray. .
A man may now puss years ]"n the
healthy walks of common lite without
being invited to drink. If there is
still a circle in which a polite refusal j \
to take the offered glass is moi. with ! a
a sneer or with ridicule, to that circle ] s
we are contented to be outsiders ftU'. j t
life, "i always didlike the taste of j ?
it, therefore 1 never touch it,*' said c
the heroic Jackson. If there i- any j 1
ilaw in that short specimen of inexo- t

men ol the country point it out. IfV\
there is not, let the groat and increas- j

A poor victim of intemperance was :
mice spoken to privately by a few :
friends. His answer was unexpected
and suggestive: "Xo man ever
drinks except for a reason." The j
tone and air of the speaker seemed \
to say, ''You seem actually to think j
that a grown man will strangely !
turn aside Lo drink without any cause, j
and that a few minutes' talk with j
you will st'>p him. You know nolii- j
in g about the matter. No mar
