Excerpt from Some Thoughts on the International Temperance Meeting: Held at Antwerp in September, 1885

International meetings, for whatever purposes arranged, indicate in a given direction uniformity of wants, desires and aims in the countries directly interested as participants in such gatherings. Their primary object is invariably the interchange of experiences, harvested under widely different conditions; the comparison of efforts and results, and the ultimate adoption of those ideas and methods which are most strongly supported by the outcome of actual tests, and hence most likely to further the common cause. Considered from this point of view, it must appear somewhat strange that the American temperance advocates, who usually display great eagerness in giving the widest possible publicity to everything calculated to enlist public interest in their efforts, have so far failed to present through their very able publishing houses a complete review of the so-called International Temperance Congress, held at Antwerp in the month of September, 1885. This indifference to an event of such uncommon importance must appear all the more surprising when it is considered that America was represented at this international meeting by some of the most eminent champions of the cause of temperance. Now and then, it is true, an occasional allusion is made to individual utterances; but, aside from these, and a few garbled extracts of reports, very little seems to be known here of the proceedings, and absolutely nothing of the spirit that prevailed at this congress.
