Temperance, to pioet people means
total abstinence from intoxicating
drinks as a here rag* and prohibition
of the manufacture, sale, and use of
the same by the government.' But
there Is another large class of people
who declare, with the dictionary, that
temperance means the moderate use
of .anything, and that 'neither the
Bible, meoical science or human
tory support the total abstinence
rlew. Both parties do agree that
th^ abuse of Intoxicants Is a curse, al

the use and sale should be restricted
to the lowest possible point. There

'I Radicals and Conservatives.

radicals and the conservatives. The

bottle, and destroy every form of in
toxicant. used as a beverage, by every
human being on this planet The
other class, would not make men vir
tuous by removing the temptation,
but would educate. Instruct and de
velop a race of men who would move
as undisturbed and unharmed amid
spirituous temptations *6 ? Daniel ? in

the same end. How cap It be reached?
Certainly not by' maintaining
I Much of modern so-called temper
ance work is verbal abuse of the oth

common enemy, the temperance agi
tators train their guns upon those
who do not wear their uniform. The
