The W. C. T. U. organlzation is a yery large and powerful one, doing work in forty different Jlelds. As long as it keeps out of politics it enlists the syrapathy and co-operation of all. Theie are tnany of the best Christian women who sce that f they lend thelr name to any pirty they will nt once lose ground by dividing and alienatinr some of the best workers. They also hurt their Influence witli outsiders from wliom they mlglit wisn to liave help. A case in point is at hand. The Union had been worklng among the railroad men by leaving their literature In depots and stations. But of late '.hel'rohibitionists had commenced to use this to disseminate third party tracts and copies of the Centre. Conseqiiently thls branch ot work has been so orippled that it had to be discontinued at their last conventfon held in tliis city. So the Union itself will go the way óf the old Red Ribbon Clubs f it is not kept trom meddling in politics. Ik-tti-r stick to true temperance work. Ladies of the V. C. T. U. asked Capt Al en to vote for the Blair Kducatlonal blll. He did so, and at their last eonvention the third party wonnen would not let a niotion come before the meeting to tlmiik hini for it, although such a resolution was introduced. Htiw is that for blgotry, small mindedness and pxrtllanliip? We predict that before lonsr the true frlends of temperance anionj the ladies will rise up and rebuke those )cbemn who are eadeavortng to prostilute a noble order to purtlsan oud.
