dc.description.abstractAs over-indulgence in strong drink was seen as a serious moral and social issue, some churches and the local newspaper publicized the temperance cause. Visiting temperance crusaders made some impact, but most of the work to promote the cause was done by the Te Aroha and Waiorongomai Bands of Hope. Details are given of the meetings and the leaders, the latter being crucial, as the cause flourished with good leaders but floundered without them. Attempts are made to estimate the success of the movement, which undoubtedly was less than some enthusiasts claimed. The law could be used to control hotels and to limit their numbers. Some enthusiasts went further still, advocating total prohibition. To illustrate the types of people who were involved and to show how they worked for the cause, the lives of some leading temperance advocates are examined.en_NZ
