Whiskey advocates and drink

out other means than those em
ployed to do away with the whis

left to the pulpit it would take
them less than a month to ' dis
continue (if they ever go) church
going. They would be the first
to cry that the church is no place
to talk temperance. It seems to
us that the great majority given
for prohibition in this State there
could hardly be found a decent
newspaper or true pastor arguing
other than for the absolute obe-

jority. How any paper believing
I in majority rule can do less is
more than Patriotism should be
expected to tolerate. To leave
the matter-to the preachers would
not prove much more effective

any other clats. They are not a
unit on this subject. We have
both "booze fighters" and , tem
perance advocates in the pulpit,
some by choice and some because
the whiskey advocates have said
"keep silent or your salary will
fail.' A preacher who can thus
be controlled is a hindrance to
religion, temperance and morali
ty. He is a negative force and
as reprehensible as Peter when
he denied his Master. We be
lieve a majority of the preachers
are high-class men, and are
favorable to temperance when not
influenced by the pDssibility of
giving up a good salary, but if he
