    Excerpt from Demoralization of Native Races by the Liquor Traffic: A Paper Read at the International Temperance Congress, Held at Zurich, September 8th, 9th, and 10th, 1887 Ladies and Gentlemen. - It was with feelings of heartfelt pleasure and satisfaction that the English United Committee for the Prevention of the Demoralization of Native Races by the Liquor Traffic heard of the second meeting of the International Temperance Congress in this year 1887 (the year of the Committee's birth), for whilst the subject on which I address you to-day deeply affects England and those races which are subject to her rule, yet it is distinctly an international question, affecting more or less all those countries which are represented at this important Congress. It is therefore our earnest hope that some practical result, which I shall venture to suggest at the end of this paper, may follow our deliberations to-day. The Committee which I represent is the outcome, and the gathering together into one, of several independent efforts towards the attainment of the same object. From the unity of effort which now characterises the movement in England we anticipate great things, and should this Congress also give its adhesion to the work, may we not venture to hope that the increased strength which this additional union will give, will create a force of public opinion in Europe which will be irresistible, and which will enable us to wipe away this foul blot from our national escutcheon? Mr. Joseph Thomson, Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society, the well-known African traveller, strongly urges this international union. In a lecture delivered by him in Manchester, on May 18th of this year, he says: - "There is something more required than to bring a British public to a proper sense of its duty in this matter. To be of any use, the entire conscience of Europe must be roused. Britain does not hold one-tenth of the African coastline, and her settlements are broken into by those of France, Germany and Portugal. Hence merely to stop the trade, or heavily handicap it in our colonies, will only be to invite it to enter by the back-door from French, German, or Portuguese sources. It is one thing to arouse a trade or an appetite, and another thing to stop either. If you do not supply the natives with gin, they will find a thousand ways of getting it from other people. Therefore to be effectual, you must get all the countries of Europe to work in concert with you. How difficult this task will be is shown by the Berlin Conference, which would not prohibit the introduction of gin into the Congo, nor permit the suppression of the existing trade in the Niger, though it was curiously enough the company itself which worked the Niger trade that wanted the suppression." Mr. Hornaday, too, in a letter to the New York Tribune relating to the appalling exhibit of the devil's work being done on the Congo through the conscienceless greed of the traders shows that, unless the moral forces of England, America, Germany and Holland are organised and applied to put an end to the outrageous and abominable state of things on the Congo, a few years will suffice to rot the heart out of the Africans.
