Rov. Powlek Preaches a Tompor
anoo Sormon for tho Benefit of
tho Junior Templars of Honor
Last ovoning the Junior Templars of
Honor allendod tho Methodist Episcopal
churoh in a body to hoar a sermon on tho
groatost curso in tho world. "Woe unto
him that givoth his neighbor drink, that
puttest thy bottle to him and makest blm
drunken also," Hab. 11-15. The great
Gladstone is creditod with tho statonent
that "the ravagoa of strong drink havo
been greater than those of war postllonce
and famine comblnod." No ono will
doubt that it blights and blasts ovorything
ittouches without conferring a singlo com
pensating blessing. Its offocts aro 6oon

and broken moralfi and in tho povorty of
nls homo and tho sufforines and Inhoritod
taints of bis childron. We seo somo of its
effects upon Bociety in tho accidents, in
sanity and crime of which it is the fruitful
source. It has moro to do with the unrest
and poverty of the toiling masses and in
tho conflict between labor and capital, both
in thi3 country and in Europo, thanhas the
tyranny of capital. It lays its hands upon
tho Uongressos, Legislatures and Courts,
and often shapoa our governmental policy
and controls the administration of our
laws. And in spite of ourselves, it is onjtlie
increase. Tho production of beer last year
in our country was C0,C30,0DO barrels
about a half barrel for every man, woman
and child. The increase over tho previous
yoar was 3,000,003 barrels. Wo hear much
of tho raerita of high liconse, but its chief
merit is in reducing tho numborof saloons,
not tho amount of liquor that is consumod.
Pennsylvania, with its so-called high li
conso law, consumed moro beer last year
than evor before in any year of its history,
and nearly 00,CCO barrels moro than tbo
year before. A real temperance measure is
ono that roducea the amount consumed, not
merely tho number of saloons. So that
high llcenso is a demonstrated failuro and
an unmitigated humbug so far as tompor
anoo ia concerned. And no bettor proof of
this could bo had than tho fact that rum
sollcri are its best trionds. It is not sur
prising that men of tho world favor such
measures, but tho only consistent thing for
ono to do who believes in God and in tho
triumph of right ia to sot his face against
any law that rccognlzis its right to exi't,
and to dotnand the repeal of all our lleonso
laws in order to dlssolvotho partnership of
our government with tho traffic. Tako

Tho chlof reason for tho rcquost by the

aniWOr tho PUrnOSO. hut in nMOnmllnw
grades tho "T" rail is, by far, tho safost.

rail on a hoavy grado, bocauso whoola

fUngos of eufficijnt depth. But in tho caso
oi "i" rails tbo wboels of tho cars must
havo flangos that are largo enough to pre
vent such accidonts.
Tho argument that tho company wanta to
uso tho "T" rail because it is cheapor than
tho other lacks foundation. It dooa not re
quire the intolligonco of an oxport to see
that it costs moro to manufacture the "T"
rail and that, theroforo, it would cost tho
company more to uo men a rail.
Tho alarm tho A'cws is sounding is un-
provokod and wholly unnecessary. The peo
plo need not fear that tho railway company
will tako any advantago of them through
the councilmen. or that the rnmininr 14 An.

MR. COYLH'S CANDIDACY.
Ho is Spoken of In Glowing
John J. Coylo, our townsman, who was
nominated by tho Hopublicans oi this dit
trictas a dolegate to the Constitutional
Convention, If such is held, is in all ro
spocts fitted for the position. Ho Is intelli
gent, industrious and earnest, and whatia
still more to the point, he is in full
sympathy with tho interests of the pooplo.
liaised in tho coal region, educated as it
were in the coal breaker till ho becamo a
school teacher, hia disposition is to sustain
tho claims of tho laboring peoplo and sen
that Justico is dono them In tbo revision of
that most Important document from which
emanates decisions for tho good or detri
ment of our common interests. Knowing
tho intorost we tako in this mattor we havo
been asked our opinion of Mr. Coylo, and
wbother ho would support tho interests of
tho workingmen should ho bo oloctod.
Our answer has invariably been, "Yes.
John J. Coylo can bo rolled upon. Wo
have talked with him on tho subjoct and
wo aro tati-fied that, if olectod and called
upon to attend to tho duties involved In
thoposi.ion ho will not bo round want
ing when tho test comos." Wo
would riot say this much of Mr. Coylo
if wo did not beliovo it, Wo look upon
this matter ot holding n Constitutional
Convention aa ono of tho greatest import
ance Honest, independent voting, in tho
first placo lomands it, for not until tho
presont system is changed can tho work
ingmen as a clas, go to tho polls with tho
full knowledgo that they can cast a freer
and independent voto, uncontrolled by iiid
fear that such voto cast in opposition to
ttio wishes ot their employer, or somo of
hi3 moro unprincipled whippors-in, who
disgraco themselves by interfering with
tho most sacred right of an American
workman and control his right of citizen
ship to suit their own partisan desiros, and
failing to induco him to bo their sorvilo
tool, annoy or prosecute him in ways fa
miliar to themsolvos, which thoy pos ess by
virtue of tho petty authority with which
thoy aro clolho I as bosses of coal mines
or somo other publio works. Also,
it is needed to protect tho honest but un
wary voter from tbo tricks and machina
tions of tho unscrupulous politician, and
put an ond to his schemes and political
speculation. But, as wo havo said in pre
vious articles, thore aro othor things rcsido
the ballot that need to bo revised, and for
that purposo wo need to sond men who
understand the wants ot the pooplo, and
-pecially from tho coal regions wo need to
send men who undo stand our needs. Aa
it has always been, tbo lawyer o omont will
predominate and good lawyers of the right
class, if not too many, will be useful, but
othor kind of men are needed so that tho
people bo properly represented, and
pec' ally, do we urgo on tbe workingmen
that they vole fur the men only who can
be depended upon to look af.er their inter
ests. Such men as Powderly, Pomeroy
and Coyle. Whatever you do in tho way
of voting for men to fill the state and
county offices, do not forget to cat your
vote for the Constitutional Convention a: d
for good men to represent you when it
meets. 2Vi- l(Vt'y Hetord.
