THE BISHOP AND DRINK.

TO THE EDITOR OF THE PBESS.

Sir, —I would like to make a few remarks on Bishop Julius's speech in the Opera House last night. He says it eeems to him that thedriuk traffic stood in. the way of progress, religious, moral and civil. It is an acknowledged fact that the English race has made more progress during the laet fifty years than hundreds before, with all the drink, and while commerce and science have been making great strides, what nas Christianity done? Stagnated, rln fact, it's churchianity instead of Christianity, for how many .are sincere believers- of the ethical maxims of the Sermon on the Mount, but they find it profitable for social intercourse and governmental affairs to prate about thejr high principles of religion. Then he raves on about the thraldom of capital and preat moneyed interest, and that there was nothing like money to blind men's eyes to morali'y, truth and righteousness. Well, we have not arrived at the time when we can dispense with money or capitalist eitlier. Where would his Lordshin and his followers be if the abused capitalists took themselves and their, money out of New Zealand? Let every man and woman think before striking out the top line ot the record handed down for generations, that the people of New Zealand had become such drunkards that the Government had to dictate what we should drink; also vote for men that are thoroughly upright lovers of truth and justice, not mere clap-traps.—Yours, etc.. TEMPERATE.
