Resolution On Tobacco

J. M. Shelburne offered the following amendment and it was adopted:

RESOLVED, That we respectfully suggest to the ministers of our churches and to the teachers in the schools of our land, and to the fathers and mothers of our boys and girls, that they consider the probable ultimate effect of the growing and excessive use of tobacco by our boys and girls, with a view to arriving at some kind of cooperative measures by which at least some of our young people may hope to escape the experience of an habitual slavery to tobacco.
