lluptist ministers, In their weekly
conference, today, urged the posting In
all churches of a warning issued by
the Judicial section of the American
liar Association against disregard of
laws. The warning asserts that dragon
teeth nre being sewed by disregard of
the prohibition law by influential busi
ness men utul that the inevitable result
will be ii collapse, of all laws.
The recommendation was made by the
llev. Samuel Zane Itatten in ti report of
the Civic ItlffhtceuH Committee.
"Kducntlen nsd morals arc ljMially

said, "but nt present the opposite seems
te held trun: that legislation is nhead.
Wc nre facing n serious crisis In tbe
temperance movement nnd one which
gees deeper and strikes at the very
foundntlen of our civilization, iininely,
the disregard of ail law that comes from
open violation of temperance laws.
"The committee feels that every
church should place iu n conspicuous
place the warning nleng this line re
cently gotten out by the judicial section
of the American Itur Association, where
nil may see It."
The speaker also urged it catnpnlgn
in the churches te create sentiment
which will compel stricter enforcement

In Philadelphia by ittitomebllw every
