A tcnlllc scorlnc wits given the
Lackawanna county court Judges by
ltev. Dr. Joseph K. Dixon yesterday
In nn nddrcss than preceded his tegular
morning sermon at the Penn Avenue
Tin. burden if his charge was Ihat tlu
Judges had on Saturduy discriminated
UFA-. DP. JOSF.PU K. DIXOX.
He Addressed to Ills Congregation all
Open Charge Against the County
in fnVor of the saloon and against the
cli'iucb in rtnewlng the license for
Welchel's wliolesah llauor cstablisb
lnont In the Inlltdlng adjoining the
church structure. Hemonstrances and
exceptions against Welchel's place and
Anifsbry'H saloon in the same building
had been filed by the church ollleers.
Only Ainsbry's application was refused.
Dr. Ulxun said:
SADDFXED AND CHAGIUNED.
1 come hcloro you this morning, my
people, saddened and chagrined, Hy
ununlmous voice of our advisory com
mittee, consisting of the trustees of the
church, the deacons of the church and
live men of high worth elected from tliu
church, a formal protest was entered be
fore the license coin, against the con
tinuance of the two saloons adjoining the
walls of the sanctuary. This was fol
lowed by exceptions duly Hied and sub
stantiated by evidence before the-courl.
On last Sabbath morning by unanimous
rising vote you endorsed the action .of
the advisory committee hy the adoption
of the following resolutions. Dr.
Dixon then read the resolutions which
have twice appeared In The Tribune.
They strongly endorsed tho ollleers' ac
tion. We carried the case into court witn
ample evidence for the revocation of
these two licenses, only to gain the vic
tory In one. The judges on the , bench
are billllunt jurists, but they have a
conscience license-hardened. Like Loid
Nelson, when he wished to disobey the
orders of u superior oilier and would In
variably put the glass to the blind eye,
and then proceed with his own dear wish.
Public sentiment Is rolling a mighty bil
low or contempt against this outrage
upon decency, good morals, law- and or
der and the church of Cod.
Tho tidings traveled fast yesterday,
thnt the license of this place next door
to us had bee.n continued; a place, where
It was proven by uncontested evidence,
that virtue Is dethroned, where vice holds
high carnival, a place where the fumes
of un Intolerable whisky stench steals its
way up through the open windows while
we aie seated here for the worship of Al
mighty Cod and the condemnation ot the
best citizenship of tills city was lieico'
und without reserve, a condemnation
that will be felt when the suffrages of
the people are asked for, even though
that be long years hence. The granting
of this license Is a crime against society;
It Is a ci line against good morals. It Is a
eilinc against the upbuilding of law and
order, It Is n crime against the churuli
of Ji sus Christ.
'HOW IS IT TO BE DONE.
llow Is this church lo wugo war against
the vice and corruption so ruiuimut In
this city, how are we to stem the mighty
llde of Immorality, when the Judges 111
the face of a mighty protest of one of
the greatest lellglous bodies In the city.
Insist against that protest, and 'against
ample and overwhelming evidence, that
we shall have a hell-hole right under our
Very windows. Insist that we slull pull
over ninety-live thousand chlldieii every
year hy this living exuuiplo of liulecenov
tdianie and death. Immorality and corrup
tion? Shame on sliuine! 11 thousand times
sluinie On lids wicked and criminal mls
icurriago of justice,
These Judges know that the largest
part of the ciime with which they have
to deal on the bench comes from the
drink curse, and when 11 great congregj
tlon of nearly a thousand p.-oplc, tvp-leM-ntlng
many thousands more, ask thut
the Infernal cuise In- removed, they lauyh
us In the face und then add Insult 10 In
jury by the puerile ui'inunent and 'ue
sugar coated sophistry, even this, .111 ut
terance of the bench to the man 10 whom
had been grunted the license, "You irni'e
u narrow ettcupe. If there had been nn
thlng moie dellnlte against the pl.e--I
lie license would not have been granted. '
In heaven's name what testluiuny iiwii
dellrllte do we need, than the manifold
evidence thnt whisky burrels are piled
nearly a score in number on the very
walks am1 fence in front of the chinch,
that our worship lifts been disturbed bv
libuld songs, that a house, the ehuraeffrr
of which shall be nameless here, a stand
ing menace to the virtue of the young
womanhood attending our Sunday school
and church service a puuo Hint bus
been tolerated for the last two years both
to the knowledge of the muyor and Ins
police; that this place has been curried
on for two years to the Knowledge and
under the direction of the men who ate
now the executors of the estute, the man
lately deceased having for that period
having ulven lliein virtual control; that
the license law has been violated In nu
merous particulars, this was proven bv
uncontroverted ev'dence that our play
ers must go up to heaven when tin hot
weather comes with the scent of whisky
hell's worst curse to this fulr earth.
What more dellnlto evidence than ibis Is
required. O ye guardians of law, purity
NOT TO 1JI3 HOODWINKED.
They tell us as though the commun
ity and the church with Its mighty con
stituency could be hoodwinked by such
nn old womanish urgumeiit. a renson lo
lllmsy Unit the clothes fell off before
they could get It out of the room even
this "If It were a new- place, or If It had
not been Mr the tuct that for years It
had been conducted without otfenae, they
would huvo opposed it." A new place!
Heaven protect us when the court begins
to drivel after this fashion. "A new
pluce." Why have courts at all? Sin Is
old why punish crime of any sort It is
old. It dates back there In tho early
morning of the race,
Why have prisons and courts where tho
rellned sensibilities of tho judges must
sll In Judgment, while men are being tor
tured with the tlieary und harassing
processes of a trial crime Is old. why not
let It alone "an old place." Noah's
shame is old, the ttuiuelt-j-s vices of Pom
.tiell are old the miasma of southern
swamps are old. The stench of Stygian
strides Is old. "tf It were a new place!"
Suppose that were a virtue then It comes
to light just now that the offense Is new'
and ever accumulating, then I plead that
the place should bo treated us though It
were "a new place." I pray (lot! these
men have no boys who may be over
thrown by this "old" monster.
O, heaven, pity us that for another
year this awful stench In the nostrils
of over ninety-live thousand children
und thousands Upon thousands of men
and women, must go on whom we bring
hero to learn how to be good men and
good women, good boys and good girls.
A mull of highest commercial, highest so
cial, highest Intellectual, highest Chris
tian standing In this community said to
me; "If wo had a place like that next to
our church doors one of our leading
members, in spite of himself, would go
oil' on an extended drunk, when once
these whisky fumes permeated the
Hl'IlL HACK WITH CONTEMPT.
I hurl back with contempt, the phrase
"If It had not been for the fact that
for years It had been conducted Vlthout
offense" It bus been a. continual offense,
tin Insufferable ami burning offense. It
Is at lids moment a blistering offense,
ltecalise ptotest has never before been
made the piutler has been accounted as
lacking in offensive qualities.
It was further stated by the bench
"that they Weie opposed to granting li
censes next to churches or opposite to
churches." Why, I ask, was nut this the
time to put that opposition Into fullest
operutlon. Is It possible that the com
munity can be beguiled by such a dark
lantern policy as that? Would the court
on tomorrow grant a license to a man
occupying a building, were there such a
building, on the lot In the rear of Elm
Park chinch? Would they grant one
next door to St. Luke's? Would they
grant one even In the vacant building the
second door away from the First Pres
byterlun church? Would they grant 0110
even across the street trom St. Peter's
cathedral? Nay. veilly. Never! Why
should they grant one next door to the
Penn Avenue church?
Sa'd an ardent ltoinnn Catholic to me
the other day: "These places could not
stav next our churches" all hull to our
Komnn Catholic friends!
Theic wtis ample admission that we hud
a case, a stiong case, even according to
the. technicalities of the law for the
court said In granting the license, "You
hud a very narrow escape." Why. In the
name of purity and Justice nnd good or
der, should he have any escape If the
case wus technically so close in the eyes
of cold, unpartlsan law, us to make a
"narrow escape" there was beside over
whelming and uncontroverted evidence,
as cleat-cut und convincing against the
place to which license was granted us
there was against the place to where li
cense was refused. In the name of jus
tlco If one was to go they both should go
If one was to stay they should both
stay. "A nanow escape."
"Why wus not the balance turned In
favor of the church?" an Institution that
Is as old In the city us the family ask
ing the license, and quite us Important
an institution that Is helping on tho cause
of humanty quite as much as the liquor
tialllc It would seem save In the inlnds
of the licence court. If our courts and
the purity of our laws and the Integrity
of manhood and the glory of our citizen
ship, if the upbuilding of home Is to de
rive greater stimulus from the saloon
than the church of Ood, then the judges
did a wise thing yesterday In granting a
license in a building ndjolnng our walls
und notorious for its moral putresence.
