The American Anti-Saloon League- is
now holding its tenth annual Convention
in the capital city of Indiana. It was
cordially welcomed to Indianapolis by
Governor J. Frank Hanley at its opening
meeting-. Tuesday evening, November 21.
The response to the address of welcome
was made by Dr. Howard H. Russell,
founder of the League, for many years
its National Superintendent, and at pre
sent State Superintendent of New York.
The sessions are presided over by Bishop
Luther B. Wilson, of Chattanooga, Tenn.,
who delivers the annual address on Wed
nesday evening, November 23.
The growth of the Anti-Saloon League
has abundant illustration in this Conven
tion. A little over ten years ago, it had
its headquarters in the vaiise of Howard
H. Russell, then an unknown Congrega
tional minister; but in a single decade,
beginning with its first State organization
in Ohio, it has expanded into an effective
organization in forty-three States and
territories of the public' Its superin
tendents bordering on either ocean, as
well as the States about the Great Lakes
and along the Mississippi. Its State and
d'strict headquarters are now to be
found in all the great cities of the nation,
and hundreds of men, many of them dis
tinguished as leaders of public thought,
are giving their entire time to urge for
ward this determined war against the
WEAKENS THE SYSTEM

Every port of the IkhIv is dependent on the blood for nourishment and

led and unable to resist the diseases and disorders that are constantly assail

nly thorough, but gentle in its action. S. S. S., a purely vegetable remedy,
lade of roots, herbs and barks, is just what is needed. It not only cleanses

gently builds up the entire system by its fine

The secret of the phenomenal growth
of the Anti-Saloon League is to be found
in two facts: First, it furnishes the only
platform upon which it has beeh possible
to get a Catholic and a Protestant to
fight together in harmonious fellowship
against the common enemy. On this
perfectly non-sectarian platform ;. such
noted leaders as Archbishop Ireland of
Minnesota, . Father J. M. Cleary, and
many others, are earnestly co-operating
with their Protestant brethren in the
war against' the drink traffic Indeed
one of the most hopeful features in the
temperance outlook to-day is increasing
number of Catholic priests and laymen
who, every increasing number of Catholic
priests and laymen who, every year, are
seeing with clearer eyes the injury their
people sustain through the drink traffic,
and who are'eager, on this non-sectarian
platform of the Anti-Saloon League, to
work in harmony with their Protestant
fellow-citizens for the overthrow of the
worst foe modern civiltzation has to face
The second fact, which explains the
marvelous power of the Anti-Saloon
League, is its absolute non-partisanship.
It furnishes the first platform upon which
it has been possible to get temperance
men In all the political parties together,
without having a fight among themselves,
In every State where .the Anti-Saloon
League has an , organization, there are
now thousands of genuine Republicans,
Democrats and Prohibitionists who are
working in harmonions fellowship against
the liquor traffic on ' the non-partisan
platform of the AntieSaloon League.
An illustration of the working power of
the League in federating Christian con
viction, and making it effective in politics
is witnessed in the election the other day
'n Ohio. Two years ago. Governor Myron
T. Herrick, the present governor, was
elected on the Republican ticket by one
hundred and thirteen thousand majority.
The Anti-Saloon League, representing the
churches of Ohio, brought before the leg
islature a bill for Local Option for cities.
and giving the residence section of cities
a chance to vote out the saloon. So great
was the influence of the League that the
bill passed both Houses of the Legislature
by large majorities. Then it was that
the governor called the leaders of the two
Houses of Legislature before him. and
bluntly told them that unless they amend
ed the bill so as to make it more accept
able to the saloon people he would veto
it Thus the measure, which, which had
been in ideal form, was sadly marred at
the dictates of the liquor-sellers. The
Christian people of Ohio were outraged
by this conduct. Every religious paper in
the state condemned the governor's act.
The pulpits, conferences, conventions and
synods of all Christian denominations
thundered . against his conduct They
sought in every honorable, way to keep
him from being re-nominated, but the
political bosses, believing that the saloons
were a greater political power than the
churches, took the bits between their
teeth and forced the re-nomination. Then,
the representatives of the Anti-Saloon
League went to the opposition and said
"dive us a Christian, temperance man,
of honorable character and standing, as
your candidate, and we will make him
Governor of Ohio." Hon. John M. Patti-
son, of Cincinnati, a life-long Christian,
temperance man, was nominated, and the
battle was on in earnest. : ' v . '-
The brewers and distillers sent letters
to all the trade, demanding that every
man in the liqucr business should vote and
work for their candidate. - On the other
side, the Anti-Saloon League, led by
National ' Superintendent P. A. Baker.
and State Superintendent .Wheeler, mar
shalled the churches.- Prayer meetings
were vocal with petitions to God; pulpits
thundered and lightened; religious news
papers loyally stood by the cause, and the
result on election day . was, that the
saloon keepers' candidate went down to
defeat and the friend of temperance was
elected by a handsome majority.
' The Anti-Saloon League is expecting a
great fight at the next Congress. It is
understood that -a determined and per
sistent effort will be made to re-establish
the government dram-shops at the army
posts. The League has been getting
ready for the fight Some months since,
it sent Congressman Littlefield. of Maine,
and Dr. Edwin C. Dinwiddie, of Washing
ton, to Europe, where they have been Bl
aming into the conditions of European
armies, and getting ready to defend the
private soldiers of the nation from liquor
selling canteens, which a distinguished
officer of the Spanish-American war de
clares was the cause of more deaths than
the number of those lost in battle.
The dew of youth is on ' the American
Anti-Saloon League. Its heart is full of
courage, and all victories seem possible
to the men who are leading it on to battle.
