T. ” 76 Prohibitionists expressed particular satisfaction with political developments in Fayette County. At its convention in Lexington on May 28, the Whig Party tapped Major M. C. Johnson and F. K. Hunt as its standardbearers. Although they had hoped to avoid making public assurances on any matter, the two lawyers felt compelled several days later to issue a joint statement on temperance. Believing that the will of the people must rule, they agreed to work for submission in the General Assembly.

They asserted that legislative prohibition would be entirely compatible with considerations of liberty, justice, and commerce. ” 94 After a short period of deliberation, Williams informed temperance leaders he felt compelled to decline the gubernatorial nomination. He believed that an aroused public sentiment would soon allow drys to accomplish their goals without the formation of a new political party. In April 1855 a subsequent temperance convention at Lexington once again endorsed Hardy for lieutenant governor.

They may have a few coadjutors or tools calling themselves Whigs or neutrals, but the stratagem is of Locofoco origin, and is intended to subserve Locofoco purposes. ” 69 In his Kentucky New Era Eginton responded to the criticisms leveled by Whig and Democratic leaders. He emphasized that the temperance movement in Kentucky was bipartisan and not designed to injure either party. The editor noted that he himself had long been associated with the Whig Party and indeed had served twice as a delegate to its national convention.
