A missionary from the South writes: “In speaking on prohibition I call attention to the fact that wherever there is a missionary school a majority of the colored people are Prohibitionists, and in alluding to places where local option has failed to banish the saloons because, as is alleged, ‘the negroes voted the wet ticket,’ I add, ’To the white citizens who make this complaint I would say, Oh, that ye had been wise! Oh, that during all the years that have elapsed since the war, instead of keeping out you had provided Christian teachers for these armed but untrained citizens, these dwellers within the gates, with whose fate your own is bound! Now would you have had able allies in this conflict with the powers of darkness, this struggle between the home and the saloon.’”
