is a body composed of Christian women of
all churches and Women not connected with
any church who are in sympathy with the
movement. Jt is National in its aims and
ends and has a membership of over 50,000 in
the United States. There are branch socie-
every state in the Union. The first
W. (’. I. U. in this state was organized over
two years ago, and there are now unions at
Portland, East Portland. Dalles. Salem, Al
bany, Corvallis, Eugene City. Boseburg, In
dependence, McMinnville, Lafayette" and
Dayton. Many of the most earnest Chris
tian women of the state are identified with
the work. Many of the niinistery of all de
nominations are helping in our work : the
churches are open for our meetings and the
better class of people everywhere lend their
aid and inlluence as soon as they come to
understand our work.
And now. what is our work ? “ To educate
public sentiment up to total abstinence, train
the young, save the inebriate and secure le
gal prohibition and complete banishment of
the liquor traffic.”
The traffic is an enemy to the home, an en
emy to the church, to the Sabbath school, to
the public school, and an enemy to all true
progress in the community. God established,
the home; the saloon tears down and de
stroys the home. The church and Sabbath
school seek to uplift and save : the saloon
withers and blights all good and pure and
holy impulses and affections. The public
school seeks to educate the minds, morals
and manners of the youth ; the saloon fos
ters ignorance, vice and crime. In the home
the best and truest feelings of heart are
planted and cultivated : in the saloon men
lose their self respect, their virtue and their
souls. The W. C. T. U. comes as a friend to
strengthen the weak, to lift up the fallen and
help them to regain their lost honor. The
W. C. T. U. asks your aid. your sympathy
and your prayers. The editor has kindly
given space and we shall from time to time
present facts and thoughts for your consid
eration. The W. 0. T. U. is a fixed fact and
has come to stay until the whole land is free
from the curse of liquor.

E d . R eporter :—I am pleased to notice the
the different views expressed by your corres
pondents concerning the great evil of intem-
p rance. Discussion is what is n^edi d If any
man honestly thinks, (no woman ever can,!
that intemperance is a blessing to humanity,
for one, I am anxious to hear his reasons
for so thinkin". I feed sure that a dozen
columns in favor of temperance would not
accomplish half as much good as one col
umn which advocated drunkenness. Hence
1 say, hear all sides, for the sophistry of an
opponent will often arouse more enthusiasm
in behalf of truth than the most logical and
eloquent discourse in its favor. To illus

from that date until June id the same
year—six months—there had been Imt
eases hi two months under whisky
rule, one case in six montlis iinilei pro
hibition. The law is enforced in three-
fourths of tin- state. Tile law permits
a town to rid itself of dramshops when
a majority of the citizens, men and
women, so petition. And they persist
in enforcing the law ill spite of the
fact (according to "Junius") that pro
hibition causes " depression in trade.”
Well, it does cause a depression in the
whisky trade, but all other trades pros
per under prohibitory laws.
Another ease : " Millville, N. J., is a
thriving manufacturing town; it used
to be noted for rum ami drunkenness,
but since the authorities refused to
grant licenses ;i great change Inis taken
place.” lion. J. W. Newlin, editor of
the Millville /ii'pii/i/uioi. says: “ The
liquor traffic has decreased bit per cent,
and what illicit trattiic there is, is driv
en into the darkest corners, for a hid
ing place. (If prohibitory laws cannot
be enforced, why hide ”) This proves
that illicit traders fear the law will be
Mr. N. says, “There is
a great falling off of drunkenness and
crime." Of course.
A writer says:
We visited the fac
tories and talked with the working
men ; they said. ' we never want to see
liquor sold in Millville again.' ” (Why
not, if liroliibition depresses trade .’
But it does depress the liquor trade,
for says the same writer, “ We visited
some rumsellers whose business had
been suppressed, ol rather depressed,
and they said ‘You temperame men
will ruin the city II’”
Again; Mr. Lilly, of Cornell, 111.,
writing to the Lever, of Nm. 29th,
1882, says, "Cornell is a village of
about 500 inhabitants. Prior to the
year 1878, the village had four tine-
looking saloons and one dilapidated
church, but the ttood Templars got a
foot-hold here and elected a prohibi
tion Board by a majority of five. Since
that time our majorities have increased
with each succeeding election and now
