JOHN’S ANSWER Prohibition a National Issue Whloh the Old Parties Ignore—A Sharp Dig at Blaine's Dodging the Ques tion In Maine, Etc. [TELEGRAPHED TO TUB ASSOCIATED PRESS ] New Youk. October 12.—The following letter has been addressed by Mr. 8t John, the Prohibition candidate for President, to Hon. Theodore D.Woolsey, of New Haven Hod. Thomas Talbot, of North Bellows, Mass.; Hon. John B. Farwell, of Chicsgi ^Hon. Noah Davis, of New York; Grant Goodrich, of Chicago; Rev. D. M. HatQelJ, of Chicago; Creighton Lunt and William Derring, of Evanston, 111.; John Evans, of Denver, Colorado; Ira Buckman end John L Mitchell, of Brooklyn: iiLADELPHiA, October 11.—Gentlemen : In t i New dra^ronMh^anYas^^^rcsldtntia^oml inee, together with an ela»»orate statement of the reasons why, In your judgment, 1 should take this course. Permit me to reply that I have given the riatement and request the carvfm and candid consideration,as,com ing from men of your high charactci j—° - merit and that I can neither agre» w* HV one or com; ly with the other. In luttico to myself and courtesy to you, I must refer spociilcally to som* of the leading ressous which you argue. Bear with me while Ido this in i feat possible way: 1. You doirta the cues Ion of prohibition ■Uteri to the people separate from other Is- hundreds of thousands of other . and our very modest wish was thero denied. B. liovlng prohibition a national Issue to blow out a national curse, wo could not ask aud the Ucpoblican rarty could not with fairness grant any loss. Refusing that, the party can* not have the Slightest possible claim upon my vote. & The policy of nutlo"al prohibition 1ms already been clearly defin'd and approved by the “great body of the friends of t'n cause la the United t'tates”—more clearly do fined and more generally approved by these than w s the oaticual po Icy con ernlug slav ery, when that had commonrecogultl u as u nwonal • issue and arrayed the parties !u open contest. This national issue may be s mined up In toe phra-o national Rover- e gat. over.the liquor traffic—to suppress it Instead of to legalise, prfttcet aud perpetu- 3 Out of Hie widespread approval which this policy had attained, and beoausn of It, came the HtUbur.r c< uvention, with its more than COO delegates, representing thirty one Bta ts. and, as t believe, more repr.-s. ntli tivo of the great body of Prohibitionists brought before the country than any other bod> assembled It was a conve tion regular 1 v called. An unusual interim was given for temperance people to consider it and pian for it. Its delegates, as I have said, were citizens representative character, many of whom hud recently been active workers in thizers with one or the other of the ties. 1 hey went there upon a plain call to nominate n presidential ticket, and for no other purpose, and your fuwertlon that a large part of that convention opposed plac ing a ticket iu the field has never beforo hoi u made to my' knowledge, is not jus tified by the reports of the pro ceedings print, d In the leading journal at the time, and is emphatically cro. tradlctcd by reliable witnesses, delegates and specta tors, who sot nthecon onllousndare familiar with all that was th re done aud said. Oa yvoY third point, therefore, you surely have wen misinior eo as to facts. 4.1 see nothing more confusing In the Prohi bition mo ement haul any other, unless yon mean that It is confusing fhc politicians. Had prohibition alone been refer cd to lu the platfo m, you might hay* objected to lt*s“a one l i» a’’ party.

They should serve Prohibition plntfonn wero as carefully < slUcrcu aud or autUoritafively adopted as i that have thus far beeq presented to the Aw ican people, sud I am satisfied that they em body m a high degree and fur more compre hensively tho w ell-being and prosperity of our country than do those which have recog nition iu both the Democratic and Republican platforms. c “it Is true,” you say, “that tho Republican party declined to make prohibition an issue In its platform.” The party was not asked to make prohibition an issue of principle. It was not requested to declare. It was merely a** * to favor submitting the question to tno y.__ pie. if for it to have done this would, as you assert, * “havo been ywycal suicide,” then I seo no hope l‘'possibility of tho Republican party over granting ev n in slight u concession to the t«-in pc ranee people, and I am amaxed that you should nrgo my longer fealty to that party. 7 and 8. If that party which you call ' the party of fair play” aud of “majority rule” can not now nationally declare in favor of both without political suicide, what hope have \y that in any State it will long favor either, o. that us a national body It will ever support the national policy for which I stand and In behalf ot which the national Prohibition party is de clared. Uncompromising hostility to that po litical par y cannot surely delay its progress us can covert en ity cncloakcd in friendly dis guise. l', 10 and 11. You aro not Republicans, I may presume, simply because you expect to oleet your ticket we cannot forego being Prohibi tionists because we have no sure promise of ut once ••lcctlng ours, and while it may be unrea sonable, si ou Insist, tochsngc from bad to worse, simply for change, it is always host to fav.-r tho right and to stand by principles, re gardless of what change m .y be brought about as tho result. I havo loved my country well enough to carry a musket in its defense, and to ri>k my life In Its service. I hold its obliga tions to every brave defender, and to those now representing such, as * sacred. Tno national credit and resources of tho nation 1 would uot .... ____ pointed, and all that wa? gained for God and humanity by years of war I would see pi irved through years of peace, but 17o,t . galizen dram-nbops imperil our national Jit and impair ».ur national resources to cut more alarming than any other dang.. hi<T» now threat, ns us.

Just so long this Issue of the liquar traffic will remain a national Is sue, and just so long the Prohibition party will be a national necessity. In vlewol the fact that said party presents tho only Presidential nommeo standing on atcmpeiance plauorm, would it not be more consistent for steadfast tempetance men at once to demand the Imme diate withdrawal of your own candidate, and thus avoid all possible calamities to which you refer, including as you term it, “a thing of • - . .. .. .y tjr u to puf 10 White rcit assured! ■■■ _. far as I am concerned I shall neither withdraw from the canvass nor assume a neu tral poMtlou, but, with God’s help, I shall con tinue the warfare on the liquor traffic as long as I live and the flag of our coun nr waves its protecting folds over a legalized dram ►hop. 1 therefore appeal to all love s of God aud country and homo to burst asunder the party shackles that havo bouud them, aud, ris- tug abo vc mere partisan considerations, cast their ballots for principle, leavlug to God the result. .

October 15.—The Prohibi tionists cast 39S votes for E. J. Morris for secretary of state, 378 f r Rost trough for Supreme Court, judge, 397 for Kinderdell for member of the board of public works. The average Prohibition vote was less than 400. Columbus, October 15.—The interest in the election has not yet abated. The streets were crowded all night and are still in that condition. Business men a-e discussing tho. result in the most animated manner. Nothing has been received to change the ct-tiuiates made last night. Complete returns have been received from twenty counties. The report- were never- so prompt before. This indicates that there wero hi scratched tickets. A great deal of mystery surrounds the Prohibition vote, and upon Uti-jnml the withholding of the rep >rts from a few counties the Democrats base a hope of (rutting down the Republican majority below 15,000. The contest for Congress man in the Third district is very close, but as Morev, the Republican candidate, runs ahead of his ticket 132 votes in Clermont county, which makes a change of over 600 votes in favor of the Republicans, hi* friends clAim his election. The indications are that Johnson, the Republican candi date for Supreme Court judge, has n ma jority of 3,000 in Hamilton county, and that he has run ahead of the other candi dates, notwithstanding the opposition of the li nuor interest. If this is confirmed, it will show that temperance Democrats i-cratched their own candidate nnd voted for Johnson. Cincinnati October 15.—Total unofficial returns from Hamilton county show the following puralitics on State and Congres sional ticket: Robb son (Republican) for "ecretary of state, 2,258; Johnson (Republicsn), for judge of the Supreme Court, 2 557: F.ickinger (Republican), for board ot public works. 3,147; Butterworth (Republican), First district for Congress, 1524; Brown (Rcpub'ican), Second dis trict for Congress, 2.087.
