Frances H. Ensign, state president -of
Ohio the original crussde state, cave the
opening prayer referring to the origin of
the Woman's Christian Temperance union,
and the part Ohio had had In giving to the
world this great organisation.
Hull call found a noticeable absence of
national speakers and organisers, but this
was explained by the fact that campaign
work in so many of the states this fall has
necessitated their presence In the field.

Mrs. Steveas Praises Taft.
Mrs. Stevens In her annual report praised
President Taft tor his stand on the tem
perance question. In reviewing the action
of corporations and organisations In dif
ferent parta of the country which have
placed a ban on the employment of per
sons addicted to the liquor habit, Mrs.
"There have been many similar determi
nations during the year by organizations
and prominent individuals, the latest and
most notable being that of Mr. Taft, who,
soon after his election as president of the
United States, at a banquet turned his
wine glass down and said it would ever
remain so. and In harmony with this ac
tion and through his request, no liquors
were served at the Inaugural ball at Wash
ington." The report opens with a compliment to
Nebraska, saying that the state Is to be
congratulated on the action of the last
legislature, which passed a daylight saloon
bill, but adds that It was la Nebraska
that the high license idea waa born, and
that It was In this state that the fallacy
of the idea was demonstrated.
The report then states that the national
convention waa brought to Omaha with a
view to securing In this state a state-wide
prohibition law, adding: "W have come
to help you In your holy warfare, which
warfare la our own. We come, not as
those who are Interested primarily In

commercial prosperity, but we come as

Considerable stress is laid on the work
In Alabama, where, the, report states, was
furnished a wonderful chapter .la . prohlbK
tion agitation and conquest. Governor
Corner of that state is congratulated on his
action In calling an extra session. of ths
leglslsture to adopt more stringent laws
against ths liquor traffic.' ' ; '
A general review on total ' abstinence
says: "There is In the public . mind a
clearer understanding than ' ever - before
concerning the relation of total abstinence
to prohibition. All well meaning. Intelligent
people know . that liquor drinking; is de
moralixlng; that It Is destructive to health
and happiness, to commercial - and In
"It Is conservatively estimated, there
fore," the report states. "that . M
per cent of ' the railways, .71 1 per
cent of the manufacturers. sO per cent of
the trades and 7 per cent of agriculturists
dlsetimlnate against workmen who drink.''
Appeals to Ck err bee.
An appeal is also ; made to the various
church denominations to. increase their
seal for the cause of prohibition and those
which have taken decided" stands against
encouragement In any manner of the liquor
traffic by their members .ar commended. '
The work of securing a federal law which
will prevent Interstate shipments of liquor
into "dry", territory. U commended and
sctlon along that line already taken Is re-,
viewed at length. ' PDeaker Cannon Is
oharged with having prevented . the pas
sage through the list congress of : a bill
designed for that purpose, the report stat
ing that "the feeling prevailed that the
Llttlefleld bill would have passed had It
been given a fair chance by Speaker Can
non." The report strongly favors a federal com
mission of inquiry on the alcoholic liquor
traffic, but admits that It Is nut so greatly
needed now es It waa twenty year ' ago.
rTLe report closes with an urgent appeal
for renewed seal In the temperance work.
List ef Reeeiaaaeeadatleaa.
In closing President Stevens made the
following recommendations un - which she
wished the convention to act: .
I recommend that we coiitihufe our efforts
to secure total aosiineitoer tor me Individual
and complete pioulbitKin tor the District
of Columbia, iur au states aud tor tne
V e beltev the Knox bill to be a- step
In the right direction, but Jt is evident mat
it la not far-reacUing or strong enough to
fumisB full and nsuUul prelection to pro
hibition territory irom in nuiuiicatiou oi
Its laws through lutei state, siupiueni of
liquors: and 1 recommend mat we continue
to appeal to Uie Lulled btates con rctss
for tne enactment of a law that wul pro
vide Just and adequate pruleotlou from aucil
Invasions by the liquor trade. ,
That we ak for legislation to prevent
the use of the United e'.atea mails for tbe
purpose of advertising alcoholic beverages;
lost we work toaid tne abolition of
the revenue liquor lax;
That we eoutlnue lo oppose eTforts for
the restoration of the aae oi liquor in ths
army canteen or in any place Ijvtn whtca
it has been banished:
That we co-operate with Mr. William E.
Johnson, chief special officer of ths Untied
Mates Indian service, ui the effort to en
force laws for ilie prevention of the sale
of Mron drink to, Indians; . .
That we use our utmost Influence to se
cure laws fur the suppiessiun of tbe so
called white slave tratlic. and
'that we continue our efforts to secure
an amendment to if. Lulled htatea conail
lutlon forever prohibiting pul)gamy.
1 earnestly recommend mat w give all
possible aid to the movemeul proposed by
the American Seamen s r i l-iid society to
procure an adequate staff of cnaplains for
tbe naval servtce. Which is composed ef
'ihat we endeavor to secure the abolition
thus guarding our. flag from such; Igno
1 recommend the pledge parole system
Inaugurated by Judge William Jefferson
Pollard of fiu Louts. Judge Pollard was
one of the American delegatea to the Antl
Aleohel -eons,' in jUondon. Hi plan ef
reforming ineirrlatea' was- endorsed by-o
wards of etNr persons from many lands.
I recommend the continued and Increased
use of posters and charts as an Impressive
way of giving to the publlo striking tem
perance facts and that special efforts be
made for the placing of these In the public
schools. " ' '
That we seek to enlist nurses a allies in
temperance teaching. While the position
of the nurse ta oftentimes difficult, we are
assured that prominent women in the pro
fession are Interested In the temperance
I recommend that we again accept the
Invitation from the managers of the Sum
mer School of the South, Knoxvtlle, Tenn.,
to furnish an Instructor for methods of
temperance teaching In the public schools;
That we also endeavor to secure in all
states tbe circulation amotif the teachers'
institutes of desirable temperance books
and leaflets. In West Virginia a large
number of copies of Sir Victor Horsleys
"Alcohol and the Human Body" have been
distributed with gratifying results.. This
Is one of the most valuable temperance
publications of the day and should be In
every public library and in the hands of
I urgently recommend that more ' atten
tion be given by the Woman's Christian
Temperance union to the aupply of tem
perance books in the publlo libraries. The
opponents of temperance see to It that
books favorable to license and moderation
are furnished to students of the temper
ance movement; let ua not be remiss In
our duty. . '
I again call attention to the action of the
National Educational association In Its
resolution "hoping for such a change of
public sentiment aa will permit and en
courage the reading and study of the Bible
In the publlo schools." I earnestly rec
ommend that we do all within our power to
bring this to pas. drover Cleveland-well
deecribee the value ef the Bible in these
days when there seems to be an unhappy
falling- off In the appreciation of the irV
portance of Ita study. Mr. Cleveland said
shortly before hla death, "I do not be
lieve that, aa a people, we can afford to
now our Interest In and veneration for tne
Bible to abate. I look upon It as the source
from whlrh those who study It in spirit and
truth will deriv strength of character, a
realisation of the duty of citixenehip and a
true apprehension f the power and wisdom
and mercy of God."
