The nation was aroufed from its
slumbers; so that, hy 1882, over 4,-
000 tempornuco societiou had tmii

1,500,000 h«d taken the total absti-

been closed up; 4,000 morchants had
abandoned the traffic, and 10,000
drunkards had been reclaimed. This
temperance revival was hailed as the
grandest triumph of virtue over vice

were "rash, over-sealous, and fanati-

"It is established beyond argu

experience of courts, and by tho ob-
servation of enlightened philantbro
pist, that tho prevalence of intern
perance in every country is tbe
standard by whioii its crime may
bo measured. Whatever man or
woman can do tbat cheeks mtom

vice and misery, and promotes vir-
tue and happiness. Whatever man

"Statistics show tbat from 1880 to

Bev. Mr. Burnett having extend-

ple to participate with them in a
mass temperance meeting, on Wed-
nesday ovoaiQg, the 80th, at tho
camp mfeeting grounds, a groat out-
cry was raised by tho license party
about social equality. It turns out
thr.t it was for this oflcnce tbat some
of thorn wanted Mr. Burnett hung,
t was every where given out that if
any colored people dared to put in
tfieir appearance at this meeting,
they would bo mobbed, and some

Tho original time put the two Con-

simply giving tho voters of eaoh

it not truly democratic in tho

Why, then, are tho friends of local

If the majority say, by a fhir ballot,
