Indianapolis Patriot Phalanx (Newspaper) - November 04, 1897, Indianapolis, IndianaIs. Last week m a a Etc Bonsib s record for addition to successful canvassing for Phalanx. I there i come again with my bother if elision. As Long As you keep on Reading 1 i will keep on scribbling. I am not writing Init piffle in time or space but honestly to you How the ground lays in the missionary yield. On this trip 1 put All my time in mar. To Daviess counties mostly the latter. The highest vote Martin Ever had was i think 45 for bid Well but lost nearly All of that last Campaign. In Daviess the Bidwell vote reached 55, of. Which the most was lost in 96, because v of everything going wild on the Money question and no one to look after our cause. Unfortunately in neither of these. Counties have we aggressive Forward it puher8. They Are conscience voters the ticket be 1. Manse it is right and leave it at that. But friends that and that alone will a not do. Work and self sacrifice Are persistently bring these great principles of the prohibition party to the attention of others. Reader we need our helping hand. It is not party we want As much As principle. Although gome Temperance people May say they do not agree with our methods they must admit 1st, that there is great need and education on these in 2nd, that old party politicians 5 of hot encourage but rather discourage this work. 3d, that those who vote Ahti ruin sentiments Are the Only ones who Are persistently and consistently agitating them. Philanthropists where Are you will5 you not open your hearts your hands and your pocket books to Aid this much needed work in my Rotindo a St week i did not find a Sile Teiper be organization. If the principles of sobriety Are not incl Ca Ted in Timi is of the Young what wiil the Harvest be of ring to Eek came into the House of some of seventh by adventists. On acc Jat of sunday they practically los a week yet they i Church work. A wond Al missionary spirit they have. A whatever their peculiarities May be we y must give them credit for being indefatigable Cealus propagandists of their ready to talk dirt it or give you one or More of their tracts or papers. After Reading their a papers they do not destroy them but a pass them on to others. Our friends at least should a i them in patience _ Zelii ver give a Quot and everlastingly at it spirit. There Are less than 2,000 of these people in Indiana and yet they Are 3oing magnify Nutly on financial contribution a and literature distribution. How much further prohibition might be advanced if Quot our people would do like a. Wise _ another praiseworthy thing about them is they keep a tabulated account of their workers where they Are at and what they Are doing and also stand by thei in Church press. In their Indiana i conference resolutions they say Quot whereas the introduction of the signs of the times into the Homes of the people is productive of great Good both in interesting our own people in missionary work and Awakening in and leading Many to embrace the truth therefore Quot we recommend that All our churches make a vigorous Effort to place this paper into the Homes of their neighbors and friends by a Thoro House to House can ass the elder and other Church officers to Lead out in this work and further Quot we recommend that conference labourers when entering new Fields first make a House to House canvass for the signs of the times Quot i say Reader what say you Are you willing to do this same kind of work for our cause and press whatever Good qualities the seventh Day adventists May have they Are of no. Use to our cause As they will not vote. Our ticket for fear we might use our a Quot it influence against their Sabbath Satur Day whereas our platforms of the. Past plainly say Quot that All should be a i i. Protected in one Day of rest in Lite we do this As philanthropists and not i v As a Creed or religion. .1 had two Good meetings on sufi Day Ca. Quot oct. 24, at Shiloh Church of god. Also a Good one monday at Raglesville. Had in school Riouse could not get of Hurcil politics you know. But of How inconsistent 1 both Church Bells Lam i Jav but a Jollif cation at the news of Mckinley s election who would not Raj Quot have been elected had he not received a Large share of the support of the liquor element Quot great is Diana Quot had a audience tuesday / r night at Elnora first prohibition speech a a yer made there Fei a by re a. I spoke in the m. E had sent an appointment to sea pc in he mud a Church 3 Miles out Quot Einor arbut the party Quot i sent word aues to attend to it. On my Way i and trustee of the thu Rob and so is the school teacher it is. Just a few minutes to 4 o clock so we must hurry to the school House. The school teacher was pleased with the idea so word was sent out with the scholars. Then or. Moore said Quot you will spend the night with us. »1 will hitch up and we will Fly to such houses As there were no school children at dark we pulled Back to his House and ate a Good Mush and i k supper. Or. Moore is a Pennsylvania dutchman and was quite enthusiastic about my meeting. If i could find such a Man in every locality to help make things go what a grand Success would result. He is a Man of Large influence. At All former meetings i was my own advertising agent introduced of the speaker Etc. Altho word had been sent him the Sexton failed to show up. So a Large crowd gathered but closed were the doors. I told them if the Sexton did not come soon i would speak from the Steps of the Church. Still others came and finally a Man arrived who had a key that fit the lock and in the people eagerly rushed. Soon the lamps were lighted the organist at her place with a band of Good singers around her. After preliminaries the speaker stood before them and said he would give a Bible political talk. They wondered what he would say. It was an inspiration to the speaker to receive Fuch close attention and to note the signs of approval on the part of his hearers. Suffice it to say he did his Best to give them most needful practical up to Date Bible politics. I was urged to speak there again so i will give them another meeting in the near future. The Outlook there is Bright. The following morning or. Moore said Quot i have been a populist but have come to the conclusion to vote the prohibition ticket and cast my lost with you he gave me a Dollar for the Phalanx and another for the Mission Ary work. He said further Quot this is Corn shucking time very Busy but i la Bitch up and take you around. We never bad a Feller like you around Here so we took in the school District and got nearly every family in sight to take the Phalanx. There will be 35 come to Elnora had not a single subscriber there before my coming. 1 have recorded 8 men who get their mail at Elnora who say they will vote our ticket and i believe them to be honest in their expressed intention. With sadness 1 record that on my rounds at Blainville i ran across some men who in a joking Way hallowed at a rough looking fellow saying Quot Here John is Bon it ebbing for you a Man with a probition to hell with such a paper 1 have no it use for bit Sti Iai talk Fryni a did not pain me nearly so much to Niet the m. E. Minister at Blainville who refused to have the Phalanx on the ground that it was not fit for christians to read that he did not want his children to have a paper which Speaks disparagingly about the ministry. I told him that we had profound respect for a True minister but when he was wrong we did not think him any better than any other wrong Man. Quot Well Quot said he Quot the prohibition party is As corrupt As any party. It is a demo rapid Aid society. You Seldom get a Democrat to vote that ticket they Are All As a Rule republicans. I Celieve in religion Temperance and prohibition but not the prohibition it tribes me that if what this minister says of the Prohl bit Ion party is True he ought to favor it so As to get All the bad and corrupt men out and Over to us then the Good Republican Temperance and Church peo pie can annihilate the rum Devil. What say Yon Brethren at Plainville i did not expect to Flod any prohibitionists but found several. Our two subscribers Here gave me a Royal Welcome to their Homes namely Woodson Murphy and William Littell. Both say Quot we Are Well acquainted with you by Reading your they insisted that i must give them a meeting so we had it the next night. A fair audience. The counter attractions that night were band practice m. E Church singing and a 10 cent show. Lack of interest of course kept others away who might have been there. Still i believe some Good was done. At Plainville Ever since the Nicholson Law passed the faithful few Bave pushed remonstrance after remonstrance and have succeeded in keeping saloons out. Of the Village. It is Ian unfair and in most places an impractical Law wears out the patience of the Temperance people. For if one applicant fails to get a License another can try and that would require All the remonstrance work to be done Over again. If the people said once they did not want a Saloon that ought to Settle it at least for a term of years. Our Friend Woodson Murphy is a wonderful Many a genuine prohibition propagandist. He keeps passing on his Phalanx from hand to hand till the paper is worn out with being read and when he find especially fitting articles in the paper he sees that the right no an gets to read it. A Good example for others. He is a Liberal Man but has no Money for a License preacher. Geo. A Littell the Flower of the Littell family a True Friend to our cause passed yet to fill in Daviess Tonni after Thiefa i will go to the 1st District. I wish the Postof lice address of our friends in Perry patois Trawford l and Spencer counties sent me to Vincenne one of my errands in these Southern counties is to get things in shape f r a visit later on by state chairman Crist and the holding of a county rally in each of them. Spent last sunday at Home. Had a Good gospel Temperance meeting with the prisoners in our county jail. They seemed to appreciate my Talic and said that liquor had been the cause of their downfall. H.
