TEMPERANCE ORATORY.

TO THE EDITOR

Sir,—A greater than " Total Abstainer " or Max O'Rell, whom your correspondent quotes, has laid down this theory that it is the duty of the State to make it " easy for people to do right, and difficult for them to do nrrong." And the Hon. W. E. Gladstone's wise counsel is echoed by thoughtful, sympathetic people throughout the civilised world. The answer to" Total Absainer's" questions is contained in a paragraph appearing in the Guardian on Wednesday night, as follows:—

" There are now 52 prohibition orders in force in Mnsterton, including eight issued last month."

The amount of misery, shame and degradation which that sentence suggests is simply deplorable. And when we think of the families who indirectly have to share the misery and shame, only the callous and wilfully blind are incapable of appreciating the work of Mra Harrison Lee in the noble work which she and others are engaged in. Let Ashburton's No-license record for the last two years be compared with Masterton under License for the same period, and methinks the revelation will be an eye opener to your correspondent.—l am, etc., Grenadier. Ashburfcon, July 6th, 1905.
