We, your Committee on Temperance, submit the following
report: Whereas, the subject of intemperance has been so nar-
rowly treated by its advocates, and believing as we do, that
greater results for good would be accomplished if the subject was
treated in a broader sense; and whereas, the growing evil of in-

lower circles; and whereas, the cause of temperance is a high

this Association preach a sermon semi-annually on this subject,
and urge upon their congregations to put a stop to this evil.
