VV. 0. T. U. Convention.
On Saturday afternoon, the 3rd
inst., the delegates to the provincial
W. 0. T. TT. convention arrived by
steamer at Chilliwhack «landing
from New Westminster and Viotoria. After Hieetiug* and salutations-had heen exchanged, and the
ladies had received .their billets, tho
exeoutive committee proceeded to
the Methodist church to arrange the
order' ol Wines* for the aeasion* of
the convtfpilj*on. On Sabbath even*
ing a lmton gospel twnpemioe mass
meeting wu held in Hendemon
Hall, and wa* very largely attended.
After excellent singing, led by tho
choir, Bey. O. M. Tate conducted
devotional exercise*, which were
followed by two stirring total abstinence addresie* by Rev. T. W.
Hall and Rev. 0. Patterson. On
Monday, at 10 a. m., the convention
assembled in the Oddfellows' Hall,
devotional exercise* having been
conducted by Mr*. 0. O. Major, the
president, Mr*. James Cunningham,
took tho chair and proceeded with
the order of business, a* follows:
Roll call of officers; appointmont of
reporters, Mrs, C. M. Tate and Mis*
Bowes being that committee; com
mittoon credentials and courtesy,
composed by Mrs. Hendry, Mrs.
Tate and Miss Williams; rules of
order, read by the president; com*
mittee on nominations, conaisted of
Mrs. Spaffard, Mrs. Jenkins, and
Mrs. French, who were chosen by
the president; committee on resolution*, consisting of Mr*. Wells, Mrs.
Surgisoii, Mrs. French, Mrs. 6.
Chadsey, and Mrs. Jenkins; roll
coll of delegates; committee to open
public meetings, consising of Mrs.
Major, and Mrs. Evans, a committee to frame a constitution for local
unions, consisting ot the provincial
president and the presidents of local unions, Report on new unions was
presented by W»»S»«e*.wto has
organized two union* during the
year, at Hope and Oheam. A report of the executive meeting held
on Saturday waa read by the recording seoretary. After silent prayer
a motion to adjourn for luncheon
prevailed The luncheon was prepared in the large vestibule upstair*, and twenty-live ladies and
one gontleman did ample justice to
the generous feast The afternoon
session waa opened by devotional exercise*, led by Mr*. French. Thi*
seasion of waiting on Ood in the
attitude of prayer and praise was
one of spiritual refreshing. The
president took the chair, and after
reading and confirming the minutes,
corresponding secretary's report waa
read by the recording secretary. It
showd that itP'the aggregate the
work, as reported by the various
local union*, indicated progress.
The treasurer's report, audited by
Mrs. Rae, waa then read and dis
cussed. A report from the sunt, of
literature was also read and discussed. A committee to prepare blank
forms for next year was appointed,
consisting of Mrs. Street, Mrs, Sar-
gison and Mrs. Jenkins. According
to suggestion a motion was carried
that greetings be sent by better to
the following bodies which are shortly to assemble: Ontario Alliance,
Ontario W. 0. T. TJ. and Quebec
W. 0. T. JJ. Tha meeting then
adjourned until 7:30, when the
Band of Hope entertainment was
to be given. Before the hoar arrived the large platform was found
insufficient to seat all the bright-
eyed boys and girls assembled to
entertain the audience. Tbe programme opened by singing "Hold
the Fort," with piano accompaniment, each juvenile waving a little
Union Jack. After prayer, led by
Rev. T. W. Hall, and address of
welcome (a very hearty address)
was read by Mrs. J. Henderson ana
most appropriately responded to by
Mrs. Spaffard, of Victoria. Dialogues, recitations and music, in the
aggregate will rendered, wero the
order of the evening. Space and
time forbid particular*, but jt may be
marked that the four Bands of Hope
ao ably respresented are strong allies
of the W. O. T. U.; and one hope
predominates' in the mind of the
ladies—that if the men of the present will not arise in their might and
put away the curse of alcohol ;the men
of tho future will soon sit at the
helm of the nation and possess the
power and the will to stay the monster and make laws that will honor
Ood and bless Home and Native
Land. The singing of the National
Anthem brought these pleasing exercises to a close.—Com.
H. Gladden, West Shefford, P. Q.,
writes: For a number of year* I have
been afflicted with rheumatism. Two
years ago I was attacked very severely.
I suffered a gnat deal of (tin, Irom
which I wa* not free tor a day, until lut
spring, when I began to use Dr. Thomas'
Kclectric Oil, and I rejoice to aay lt haa
oared me, (or which I am thankful.

D-tUg f ritt0h Columbian
Friday Evening. Sept. 9, 13SI.
Replying to tho Vancouvor Herald yestenlay, we stated thnt tho
people of Manitoba had been deceived with respect to the question
of disallowance, and had voted for
government candidates in the belief
that the obnoxious policy would be
discontinued. This is one of the
declarations that our Vancouver co-
toinporary denied. The Mail, Bince
come to hand, says: "The peeople of
Manitoba, as a result of the pledges
given by the Conservative enndi
dates during the general election
and of the speech of Mr. White in
March last, understood that there
was to lie no more disallowance."
This is an explicit confirmation of
what the Columbian has said, and
we think our readers will accept the
testimony of the Mail in preferenco
to that of the Herald.
The press of the province is almost unanimously blaming the man
agers of the provincial exhibition
because the event has not been
properly advertised. Even the latest copy of the Times received do-
clares that neither posters nor prize-
lists have been distributed in Victoria, and that people do not even
know when the exhibition is to be
held. If the declaration of the
Times is correct, there has been
great negligence somewhere. The
prize-list* were printed about two
weeks ago, and a copy sent to this
office, and the posters have been
posted up in this city at least two
weeks. These advertisements ought
to have been distributed long ago,
and if they are not now distributed
the matter ought to be made the
subject of immediate enquiry. We
think the directors made a mistake
in delaying too long the issuo of the
printed matter, and that the number of posters ordered was altogether
insufficient for a provincial exhibi
tion. A gathering of this sort is
almost fruitless unless attended by
many visitors, and a large attendance cannot lie looked for without
liberal and judicious advertising.
[
For a long time numerous complaints have been coining from tho
Northwest respecting the management of the mounted police force-
These complaints come chiefly from
persons who have left the service,
but they are of such a nature, and
have been so frequent, that it seems
to us an official enquiry should be
made. Among other things the
men complain that there is great
favoritism shown by offioers of the
force. A good many of the officers
are persons who have been connected
with British regiments in one capacity or another, and it is said that
they have received promotion in the
police force over the heads of Canadians whose claims are better and
whose qualifications are certainly
not less. Not only do the offices
foil into the hands of ex-soldiers,
but Canadians say they are compelled tu do the drudgery of the
service, while theso people enjoy
the honorable positions and the
chief emoluments. The result of
thi* is great dissatisfaction among
the men, and numerous desertions.
As a rule Canadians are better
qualified to deal successfully with
the Indians than Englishmen, because their education and experience
make them better able to adapt
themselves to pioneer life. The police force is costing Oanada a large
sum of money every year. Its usefulness depend* upon its efficiency,
and if the grievance* complained of
really exist to any extent its efficiency must be greatly endangered.
There are in Oanada a number of
newspapers so awfully conservative
that nothing could induce them to
believe that any change in our present commercial relations with the
United States is desirable or possible. These journals are deadly
opposed to commercial union as a
matter of course. Their pet theories would all collapse before it.
They have nevor ceased to assert
that protection is one of the prime
necessaries of success in Oanada,
and commercial union is directly
opposed to the principle of protection. Journals of thin sort seek to
mould publio opinion, but they
never oome far enough out of their
own shell to know really what are
the true oircumstances and wants
of the country. When the agitation about commercial union first
•track Oanada it was ridiculed by
these people, But the agitation
vent on, and then we were told that
it would absolutely destroy the
profit* of farming and manufacture.
Then' the farmers met, and after
much disoussion they declared for
commercial union. The millers have
jut followed suit, and doubtless we
shall hear from more of the people
: who are ready to show themselves
above party prejudices by discussing
commercial questions purely on their
merit*. We are by no mean* certain that commercial union is the
best thing (or Oanada, but we have
no »ympathy at all for those who
hurl anathema* at overy new commercial doctrine because it conflict*
witii their preconceived notion* and
threatens the soundness of their
theories. Let commercial union be
diwniwd on iti own merits.

Ik-lanae-ax. THE CHINESE OATH.
lln Fui'iri Hob Pofliilttoil in u Kerv Yurie
Court.
Tom Ah Jo, Chinaman, was on trial in
I lie Tombs Police Court, New York, the
oilier day, charged with swindling Moy
i'nrk Sue, another Chinaman. When tho
earre wan called tho crowing of a cock
canned the uninitiated to look about and
wonder what brought the fowl to court.
.Instico lteilly Binilod and ordered tlio
easo to proceed. Tho defendant then
got upon the stand, and asking his counsel, Peter Mitchell, for a knife, cut tho
threads that bound a parcel which ho
carried,- When ho opened tho parcel lie
first disclosed a small cleaver, a long paper easo containing a dozen incense
sticks, and two sticks smeared at tho end
with a substance which was,sJid to be
wax. Oilicer Holrcrt Walsh brought forward the barnynril cocks and remained
awaiting tho orders of tiro court. All this
meant that the Chinese oath was about
to be administered. The formula is as
follows: Tho oath, written on yellow
paper in largo characters, is as follows:
".Supremo Heaven, if I tell a lio may tho
thunderbolt striko mo dead." This tho
witness ropcats with his right hand
raised, tbo first linger being extended,
tlie other fingers being clenched. Then
tlio cock is decapitated, tho wax candles
nro lighted and tlie incense burned, the
Chinaman Btill keeping his position. But
this ceremony wub not performed, as the
complainant, Moy Park Sue, acknowledged ho respected a Christian oath.
Justice Keiliy also distinctly refused,to
allow any such practice to be mado a
precedent in his court, and not only said
that, but declared that he refused to bo-
come a defendant ogainst Mr. JJcrgh's
Society for Cruelty to Fowl. So tho
Christian Biblo was placed in Moy Park
Sue's hands, despite tho argument that
Orthodox Jews aro sworn.in their own
fashion, and that in San Francisco tho
Chinese form of killing a cook, etc., is tiro
regular mode of administering the oath
to the Chinese
History of the Alphabet.
Tiio most ancient of books, a papyrus
found at Thebes, now preserved in the
French National Library, supplies the
earliest foi-ms of letters used in tiro Scm-
ctir: alphabet Tlie stone tablets of tire
law could have been possible to tlie .Tews
only because of their possession of an alphabet, and thus the Biblo and modern
philological science unite in ascribing
a common origin to the alphabet which
is in daily uso throughout the world. Tire
nineteenth century before Christ is held
by Taylor to bo the approximate dale of
ll'ro alphabetic writing, and from that
time it grew by degrees, whilo from
I'gypt,.the home of the Jews during tlieir
lung captivity, tlie knowledge of file lii-
' iriinbet was carried in all directions where
alphabets aro now found.
The Aryans are thought to havo been
tlio first to bring tho primitivo alphabet
lo perfection, and encli latter ami encli
souusl may bo traced by Taylor's careful
analysis through ail tho changes that
have marked tiro growth, progress, lind,
in some instances, the decay ot dillerent
h'ttors of various alphabets. It is an interesting fact that the oldest known "A,
11, C" in existenco is a* child's alphabet
scratched on an ink-boltlo of black ware,
found in one of the oldest.Creek settlements iu Italy, attributed to tlie fifth
century before Christ. Tho earliest letters, and later ones, are known only by
inscriptions; nnd it is the rapid increase,
by recent discovery, of theso precious
fragments that has inspired moro diligent
researeli and quickened the zeal of
learned students in mastering tlio elements of knowledge of their origin and
history throughout the world.
J'rich epoch has its fragments, and the
industry of English explorers, tho perseverance of German students, and the genius of French scholars, have all contrib*
uted to group them in.their chronological
order. Coins, engraved' gems, 'inscribed
statues, and, last of all, the Siloam inscription, found in 1880 at Jerusalem, on.
tho wall of an old tunnel, hare supplied
new materials for the history. From tho
common mother of many alphabets—the
, Phoenician—aro descended tne Greek and
other European systems on the one side,
including that which we uso and havo
tlio greatest' interest in; nnd, on tho.
other, tho Alphabets of Asia, from which
have sprang the alphabets of the East—
Syriac, Arabic and Hebrew.
Persian Tea nouses.
The tea houso is the Persian substitute
for our great American saloon. Curiously enough, although nothing but tea and
sherbet is over called for ill these places
in the way of liquids, they are termed
railway kuano (coffee house) in Persian.
Every large town in Persia has hundreds
of such places. In Teheran thore are between four hundred and five hundred of
them, somo of thorn quite elegant and
high toned, but they are cheap, all of
them. There is generally a large, higli
room, through the middlo of which a
streum is rushing in summor, with a
species of summer garden behind, where
Ilia nightingales are performing nnd tho
roses are blushing in their native pink.
Dozens of Persians of high and low degree are seated on their haunches by the
bubbling water, smoking incessant ghnlz-
iins, nnd drinking tea sweet as honey and
steaming hot, while a story-teller unfolds
before the half-closed eyes alt tlio splendors of Iiustum and the Persia of old. To
sit there a couple of hours enjoying himself hugely, while a son or nephew is left
in charge of the shop in the neighboring
bazar, will cost no more than flvo to
fifteen shahi (three end a half to ten
cents.) '. ,-
Of late, however, tho ten house business had become so much in vogue all
ovor Persia, and the artisans, mechanics
and small merchants had becomo so addicted to the habit of resorting there,
that tho Shah issued a firman to close up
or pull down all tho tea houses in Persia.
Of course, like all his firmans, it was
not carried out, although thousands of
the smaller ones were razed to the ground.
Tho Lil-es-Sultan and Ispahan, ior instance, had nbout two hundred destroyed.
But that loft several hundred yet, and
the remaining ones, of course, did a more
flourishing business than ever.
Poor Ctirhitln.
Thore has been a Blight Improvement
In tho condition of tho Empress Cnrlolla
of late. She had a momontary recovery
of her intelligence and memory otic 4ny
lost wook. A young Austrian lady who
has boon acting as her dame de compagnii
for some timo past, and who happens to
benn accomplished musician, sntdoihi
to the piano a few ovenings ago, after tlio
Empress had retired to her apartments
for tho night, and played, among other
things, the Mexican National hymn.
Just as she was finishing tho last bars the
Empress appeared at tlio door of tlie
room. Sho gavo a piercing cry, uttered
her husband's name, and fell senseless
on tho floor. This is tlio first indication
which she has given for several years of
any romitiiscenco of the torriblo catastrophe which cost her the loss pf reason,'
nnd her physicians base favorable anticipations on the Incident.
.China is the country of long tresses
and short feet; a country where tea is
drank without milk or sugar, and two
little ivory sticks, carefully handled be-
'twoen finger and thumb, roplnce the fork
and spoon; a country where yon call the
first man you meet your elder brother;
where to ask a bootmaker his address it
is necessary to ask what "noble palace"
lie inhabits; a country where the creditor has the right to make an insolvent
debtor pay his bill with a piece of his
flesh, and where the debtor, by way of
revenge, hangs himself at the creditor's
door; a country where the son ruins
himself to buyji collin for his dead father.
and covered with a hempen garment
walks .backwards as he follows his
sumptuous funeral; n country where
peoplo work for thoir rice Instead of
Working for their bread, but which is of
earth and not of lacquer-work and porce-
lain; and where, as in other countries,
the husband loves bis wife and the
oriiiige-colorcd mother loves her slant-
eyed children..
It is n country, moreover, in which tho
bride attaches more importance to the
personal appcaranco of the bridegroom,
and tho bridegroom equal importance to
tire moral qualities of tho bride; and the
basis of many Chinese dramas, as of
dramas in other parts of the world, is the
passion of love. Women have been forbidden to nppcar on tho stage since the
rlay when a celebrated actress inspired
tiro emperor with a fatal caprice. The
men, who ■ undertake female as well as
male parts, play with good expression,
aiid use a superabundance of gestures,
some of which, though derived from the
ossorvnllon of reality, have at last
acquired a purely conventional value.
An actor who, pivoting on his left foot,
makes a circular movement with his
right, is understood to be getting on
horseback. To cut the air with a riding-
whip is to indicate, through the connection of cause with effect, a galloping pace,
Tho exhibition: of pieces of gold cloth
villi wheels painted on them has almost
an arbitrary meaning, and signifies that
tlie emporor is coming.
Etiquette is rigidly observed. A young
girl walking iu the street must not turn
her head round; nor at home iB she to
glance Blyly at visitors. She is to remember, moreover, that girls who are always
laughing and talking aro not esteemed,
and that virtuous women have been
hpuored- from tho earliest times. The
philosopher Membra grieved when he
saw his mother break her shuttle; the
woman Tsoun throw' herself on a sword
in order to snvo her husband's life; the
mother of Ao, being so poor that she
could not buy writing materials, taught
her son to road by tracing characters in
tiro sand. Women should be able to
read, write and use the counting machine,
so as to bo in position to direct a household. They should rend books of piety
and stones of morality in action, whllo
avoiding love poetry, songs, and anecdotes. Women should bo reserved; and
they aro cruelly enjoined nover to occupy
thbmselvcs with other people's affaire,
Men ought never to talk of domestic
matters, while women should never talk
of anything else. When a visitor is in
the dniwing-rooin, the lady of the houso
should not be heard raising her voice in
the kitchen. Womon are uot to paint
their faces and wear striking colors, for
the insufficient reason that if they do men
will look at them. Young women, as
well as young men, nro to bo dutiful to
their parents, and always in a good
humor, even whon thoir fathor and
mother aro not.
It iliril .. unil Dei*., hi Australia.
'I'll? p!(l£US of rabbits in our Australasian colonics is one of which much has
he h heard, and it appears tlmt another
European animal, the dog, is about to
follow the example of tho rabbit, and
mako himself a pest instead of a pet.
It adpears that tho number of wild or
somi-wilrl dogs hiis recently iucreasfcd
largely in Victoria and Now South Wales,
anil the conscqneiico is a great slaughter
of sheep by these nomads. The government has already offered rewards for
tlieir destruction. In New Zealand somo
enterprising peoplo have hit on the idea
oi importing weasels and stoats from England to keep down the rabbits; but if
tho former increitso in their new habitat
as rapidly as the latter have done, the
last state of Now Zealand will be worse
than tlie first, for a plague of rabbits
must bo as nothing compared to a plague
of weasels, and a great increase of the
latter, from thoir predatory and destructive habits, must bo followed by a considerable alteration in the distribution of
the fauna of New Zealand. Iu Jamaica,
according to tho last report of tho -Director of Public Gardens in that colony, the
planters suffered groatly from the depredations nf rats among tbo sugar-canes.
The I'rit-ciitcii caucs were good for nothing
except ruin, and accordingly large sums
were spent in poison nnd dogs to keep
down llio rats, but apparently without
much success. At lust an enterprising
planter determined to import the mongoose from India to destroy tho rats on
his sugar estate. Tho sugar planters, Mr.
Morris says, havo unquestionably benefitted greatly by its introduction, und rat-
eaten canes are now hardly known where
formerly they were found in larpi quantities. But tlio now importation continues to multiply nnd spread, not only
ori sugar estates, but on the highest
mountains, as well as along shore, even
amidst swamps nnd lagoons; and when
tlie sugar-cane rat is wholly exterminated, tlie mongoose will still go on increasing, and what then ? Must tho colonists find something else to exterminate
tho mongoose, und save their poultry, and
ho on ii./ infinitum t As it is, negro settlers and persons not connected with sugar
estates complain of its ravages among
their poultry, and even accuse it of destroying fruit and vegetables; and. although Mr. Morris doubts whether these
complaints are all well founded, he
acknowledges that the mongoose is the
cruise of great disturbance in tho animal
life of .Iauniciri. Harmless yellow and
other snakes, lizards, ground-hatching
birds, rabbits, and many members of the
indigenous fauna of the Island are likely
to become extinct at no distant date. It
will be interesting to watch the effect of
the intnduction of the mongoose, and we
hope Mr. Morris will enlighten us from
yenr to year on the subjoct.—Nature.

The China steamers seem to be unfortunate. The Abyssinia, in consequence of heavy fog in the gulf on
Wednesday morning, did not reach
Victoria until 5 p.m. The Times of
yesterday says that on the morning of
leaving Vancouver, the chief engineer
reported two of his aasistanta incapacitated from work: An unsuccessful effort was mado'to replace these.
Inatructiona were wired Victoria to secure a couple, but only one had been
obtained up to a late hour in the evening. On reaching Victoria a delay occurred in consequence of the non-arrival of the atr. Maude, with tho freight
and passengers she waa lightering to
the ship's side. On the second trip to
the Abyssinia the Maude struck her
with auch force that it was feared some
of the dead lights of the cabin-.port
holes had been broken. Capt. Marshall at a late hour stated ho would lay
at anchor until the morning in order
to allow him an opportunity to make
a thorough inspection of the lights, and
have the damaged ones replaced. The
cargo ia a valuable one, ..composed
largely of eotton goods, which are very
susceptible to damage from contact
with salt water. Shortly after daybreak yesterday the Abyssinia steamed
down the straits and out to aea for
Yokohama.

savage. Now in the high position it
has pleased His Holiness the Pope and
sovereign pontiff to place you, we trust
and pray your graco may bo spared for

which your zeal and noted ability has
so eminently qualified you.

Arohbisbop Taoho, in replying, said
the hospitality of the British Columbians was proverbial, but he did not
expect such li welcome us had been
accorded him to-day. It was his first
visit to tho province, yet ho had heard
of it many times, nnd always with
favor. Tlio visit to him was anal
pleasure, and as tho address contained
a reference to his weak state of health,
he thought that if kindness and a
glorious climate could effect a cure ho
would soon bo woll again and able at
some "fututo"«lat0'to.puy Westminster
another visit.
At tho conclusion of his grace'B remarks Mr. Kcary again stepped to the
front and read the following address:
To His Grace the. Most Beverend Edward Charles Fdbre, Arcldrisltop of
Montreal.
We the undersigned Roman Catholics of the oity of New Westminster
approach you with feelings of sincere
respect to receive your blessing to-day.
You aro heartily welcome, and we hope
you may enjoy your visit nnd return

We have the honor to be your affectionate and faithful servants.

His graco on receiving tho address
expressed his pleasure and gratification
in meeting so many friends in Westminster. He eamo from Montreal,
the chief oity iu Canada, and being
suoh it had many relations, so that
wherever he went he wu always among
friends. His grace concluded a very
appropriate addresa by thanking the
people assembled in tho namo of the
diocese of Montreal for the kind reception given him.
Most of tbe gentlemen present were
then presented by Mr., Justice Mc.
Creight to their grace's, after which a
procession wu formed and with the
band loading took its way to gt. Ann')

with great pleasure to your coming

Indeed we can do no better than reecho the worda somo of our number

meeting those who wear the whito

friendship, and which is to us more
than ■ name, as we know we msy give
it. wearers loving greeting which will
always meet with an appreciative response. Our assembling together to

"In a multitude of councillors there is
wisdom." It is wisdom and strength

While anticipating a much higher attainment toward the standard of perfection in the future, we desire lo

for the inspiration we have in believing
"Our call is God's call," that a woman's sphere is ss boundless as a

We earnestly pray that, as a convention, we may fee) resting upon us the

skply:
Mrs, O. Sprfford of Viotoria, replied
aa follows:
To tho W. C. T. U., Chilliwliaek.
Dear Sisters: On behalf of the officers and
delegates of this convention, it affords me
groat pleasure to tender to you some expression of our thanks for your kind invitation to meet with you, and for the
hearty welcome with which you have received ua to your hearts, aud in your
happy homes. As we come to this our
fourth annual gathering with the purpose of reviewing another year's work,
and also to receive' fresh courage and impetus for tbat to coine, we feel sure
that, surrounded as we are by so much of
the handiwork of our Heavenly Father,
we cannot but derive fresh inspiration for
the work unto which wo believe God haB
called us. Your-broad fields ef rich
waiving grain, by which wo are surrounded and into which oven now you
are thrusting your sickles, remind us that
the harvest fields of the world are all
white to harvest, and that wc are bidden
to throat lu our sickles and garner in
souls for the kingdom of God. The trees
which seem to whisper His praises teach
ua that He will make ns as trees planted
by riven of waten, whose leaves shall
not wither, and whose fruit shall not fail.
The perfume of the flowers, as it is
wafted to us, speaks of the fragrance and
beauty of the spirit of the lowly God-
man, our preolouB Saviour and dearest
friend, who la to usu the "Rose of Sharon," the "Lily of the Valley." While
nature's carpet of. green on which we
tread, reminds us continually that '' onr'
days are as the grass, tbe wind paBseth
over it and it is gone;" ao we also shall
quickly pass away, and our time and opportunities for lifting up fallen humanity
and winning souls for Christ will soon be
gone to be recalled no more. And shall
we not, dear sisters, surrounded by so
much that reminds us of tlie purpose for
which God bu created ua, and of His
will concerning us, enter into the work
of this year with redoubled oncrgy and
purpose of heart, never to givo up the
struggle till victory shall be ours! It is
also with great pleasuro we havo accepted your invitation to meet with yon, because for the first time since our organization we meet in a community within
whose bounds no unholy license permits
man to deal out to hla fellow man that
by whioh lives aro wrecked, hearts
broken, and precious souls sent down to
perdition. Here for the first time as a
convention we meet on a spot of God's
earth which la unstained by this legalized
curse, aud from, our hearts wo say, all
honor to the White Ribbon Army ond to
the people of this municipality who have
so persistently said, "We will not have
evil in our midst." God bless you in
your work, that you may be successful
in keeping it nut; aud in your homes,
that ita evil influence may never cast a
shadow across your firesides. We feel
assured, dear sistera, that we shall bo
much benefited by meeting with you and
sojourning in your happy homes; and we
trust that by our coming you also may be
helped in your work, and so may we as-
sist eaeh other by prayer and council to*
gether; for without council purposes are
disappointed, but in tbe multitude of
councillors they are established; and in
all our deliberations may the Holy Spirit
lead aud guide us to success and victory.
