persons guilty of illegal practices. The
letters were, on their face, in violation of
the law. and the detective was charged
with the offense and tried. The
district attorney pleaded that while tech

did not excuse the offense, and the detect

was made light. The ruling of the court
was as follows:
"I know that it is the practice of omcors
to obtain evidence by means of deception.
"Whether it is lawful" I am not called upon
to decide, but I will say I do not think it
is in accord with good morals. That the

i STATEMENT— LAMBS WHO BELIEVE IS A
« SOS-PARTISAN WOMEN'S CHRISTIAN TKM
The following which explains itself was
1 read in place in the convention of the
Woman's Christian Temperance I niou on
Friday afternoon: . „
1 When the time for the election o( officers
„ arrived Mrs. Dr. Stiowalter announced in
r a pleasant distinct manner, that she war
not a candidate for re-election, and that as
she was now practically withdrawing from
the Woman's Christian Temperance I mon
she did so as a matter of principle and
v.iUi tjte Uiost kindjjr %lu>S f,,r - all
. nomination of nrtie«»r». Mr*, tvrrr !TtTn ]
asked that she might read a paper, consent
j being given the following was read:
We desire. Madam President, to present
to you and this convention a statement
concerning the views of the non-partisan
members of this convention. The original
and pronounced central idea upon which
the W. C. T. U. was organized, was that of
[ a neutral field outside of the pale of church
or party, where the Christian woman ol the
I world conld join their forces to do battle
against woman's greatest enemy, alcohol.
On thi.-vbroad basis the order grew and
prospered, women of even* shade of Chris
tian and political faith united in earnest
thought and council against the common
enemy. Broad and deep foundations were
laid for uniform national system of labor iu
fields educational, correctional,reformatory
and legislative, and the world, looking on,
thought that the days of the rule of misery
and death from intemperance were num
bered, and that the generation of youths
now growing up under this educational in
tlucnco would see, uot as their lathers saw.
but as their mother.) had taught, and by
their acts in their various fields of pulpit,
press and legislative hall, would wipe out
the remnant of the liquor traffic. But at
the present time and lor some years past,
it has seemed to manv loyal members .>l'
the W. C. T. V. that the order was depart
ing from its original platform and weaken
ing aud ruining its influence by allying it
self with a political party. By thi-> action
thousands are prevented from joining in
the work and thousands already and always
true aud loyal members are obliged to sit
iu silence undei the rulings of party ma
chinery, or hear themselves branded as dis
loyal in attempts to raise their voices in
minority protests. We believe that the
great and holy work of the W. C. T. U.
lies beyond and above the lines ol party
politics. We believe that this is also the
feeling of vast numbers of the members of
the W. C. T. U. who find that through the
manipulations of its machinery, no oppor
tunity is give:-, them to express their views,
save in ineffectual "resolutions' in local
unions and disregarded protests in state
and national conventions. We believe all
power ascendsfrom the local unions to the
national. Time is too precious to be
wasted in contention. Many of us have
been drawu into this work.
by an irresistible current which we believe
to be of God. Some of lis have years of
toil already given to its various fields, and
have pledged the remaining years of our
lives to the promotion of its end. We have
pleaded first with our county that if we
were non-partisan, that we adopt such a
resolution, or amendment to our constitu
tion as would set ns right before the world
on this subject. We have gone from coun
ty to state and from state to national con
ventions with like results.
Deeply grieved at tho condition of affairs
in state and nation we cannot yet forswear
our vows aud leave others for their pleas
ure the fruits of our labors and the duties
delegated to us by a power higher than
they. To Him who has called us let us
answer. Therefore actuated by the dic
tates conscience, and loyal to the tern
perance cause gjiall withdraw Lorn the
W. C. T. U. and cordially welcome to our
ranks all who are of like minds and beliefs
with ourselves, and extend the hand of
auxiljaryship to all local unions which may
iu the futijre organize oil the basis of non
sectarian '-non political W. C. T. U. work.
