Excerpt from Shot and Shell for the Temperance Conflict

I would urge all readers of these pages, first of all to give the full influence Of their example on the right side. Let no false ideas Of fashion or gentility induce you to deem the wine-cup a harmless thing. In the next place, use every means in your power, social, moral, and legal, to lessen Or destroy the evils Of tippling and intemperance.

The motives that prompt to vigorous and united action have not been weakened by the lapse Of time. The baneful results Of a legalized liquor traffic are still unspeakably deplorable. What ever temporary inaction may characterize our temperance agencies in their work, there is no cessation Of the poverty, crime, and ruin produced by intoxicating liquors. Personal Christian effort, to reform the fallen and shield the young, should go hand in hand with earnest and united endeavours to enforce the law against the traffic. Unless we are content to stand idly watching the progress of intemperance, and thus becoming in some degree responsible for the terrible consequences, we must vigorously use the legal means which the Parliament Of our country has furnished for preventing the evils Of the liquor traflic. After we have succeeded in securing what we believe to be a greatly improved local Option law, it would be unwise, unpatriotic, and recreant to duty, to neglect to take the necessary steps to bring this law into force, merely because selfish and interested parties are anxious to disparage and misrepresent it. Every available agency by which the work may be forwarded should be vigorously brought into play. Among the most effective Of these are the diffusion Of sound literature, and the training of the young in our Sunday-schools and homes in right principles and habits, so that they may be a numerous, valiant, and intelligent army, to battle for the destruction Of this great enemy to the progress and happiness Of our country.
