When first asked to write a record of the work of the Crusade during the twenty-two years of its existence, it seemed almost an impossibility, as I had only been connected with the organization for a few years and felt myself utterly incompetent to attempt it; but throught the kindness of older members, especially the officers who had been connected with it from its first meeting, and the very excellent annual reports of former secretaries, I trust that I have been enabled to give to my readers a partial idea of the work accomplished by the temperance workers of our city and also of some of the obstacles encountered during that work. May the time speedily come when temperance will hold its proper place in the minds of all citizens having the good of the common wealth at heart, and when our fair city shall no longer be disgraced by over two hundred open rum shops, a stumbling block indeed to our fathers, husbands, and sons.
