Excerpt from Proceedings of the National Temperance Congress: Held in the Broadway Tabernacle, New York, June 11th and 12th, 1890 The National Temperance Congress grew out of a be lief ln many minds that there was a vast amount of Temperance sentiment in the country which failed of power because it failed of unity. It was believed that there was a great host of Temperance people, differing on many points, indeed, but so conscientious that they must respect one another, and so candid that they might learn from one another. Since it would require the union of all these to overthrow the intrenched Liquor Traffic of the nation, it seemed worth an earnest-endeavor to see whether 'any common ground could be found on which to fight the common enemy. No one hoped to strike out a scheme of union at a blow. Hence, it was provided that the Congress should passno resolutions. But it was believed that if the leading workers on different lines could hear each other's reasons and each other's objections and difficulties at first hand, all might find something to revise and some thing to add. It seemed that even looking in each other's faces and hearing each other's voices would create a better mutual understanding and kindlier feeling, from which future concerted action might spring.
