I do not wonder that those who have
bravely borne forced marches In thK bit

temperaiue and Impurity so hand In,

are living it life of which we dare not
speak: thev are slaves, held In bondage
by Ihe criminal selfishness of men nnd the
criminal Indifference of women; and the 1

ber of these gtrla are ruined berore they church i-outir- m

There the women Hock and the ! mented v . 1 u
bova swing hncli the doors that lead to hence 11 1- n-.!ii 1
tuin. I heard a mimic hall manager say
In the witness box that unless a certain ,
theater of varieties could obtain a drlnls-
inp license It could not nit raid to its cor-
tiilnra and foyer the company It would re-1
quire to make It pay. I
The two go hand In hand, nnd, as you
.intiot separate these view, the.
oiilY strength Is to attack them together.
Moreover.we maintain that tin- liquor traf
tle Is directly answerable for tho evil that
stalk;, our streets; thtit It fmnlshes ammu
nition Tor the great army of Impurity, that
drink Invariably plays a part In the drama
of a soul's fall; and that, therefore. If we
are true to our professions and true to
our pledge, we must deal a deadly blow
at the hydra headed evil regardless of tne
consequences such action limy entail. The
wretched argument advanced that tell uk
that this usurper of the kingdom or home
inilUt ulvvavs reign need to be torn to
shreds by the women who stand ror pure
homes and redeemed humanity.
We reeogntre no diffeience In the moral
stundard for man from that ordained for
woman; we believe that the man should
bring (o tho woman whom he would make
his wife as clean 11 past as that he de
mands or her! That to lcBiilixe vice by
providing for Its existence Is to recognixa
evil as a necessity and that such recogni
tion Is a. prostitution or Christianity.

the damnge rrom the hoodlum element,

Then petlllnu were circulated asking the.
