Attsek Rev. W. . avowry Preaches
t tk OmrraL.
The "Saloon Scourge" was the subject
of Rev. G. W. Gue's sermon at Harper's
theatre last evening. The pastor took
bis text from Habakkuk. 2:15:
. Woe I eto him that cW.th hli neighbor drink
tbat Dutteth the botJe to him and maketb hi in
"I a n here this evening to confront the
great e oemy of our times." said Mr.Gue
"to ha idle the greatest living question of
the ago. The saloon issue has the world
for a home, the flesh for a mother and the
devil for a father. It stands erect a mon
ster of fabulous proportions. It his no
head snd cannot think; it has no heart
and cannot feel; it has no eyes and can
not see; it has no ears and cannot hear
It has an instinct by which to plan, a
passion by which to allure, a coil by
wnicu to bind, a rang with which to
ting, and an infinite man in which it
consumes its viotim." Mr. Gue contended
he had a right to arraign this class of
traffic befon the bsr of public judg
meotatd to demand its condemnation,
Ue tbec went into a scathing and bitter
arraignment of the liquor traffic, and in
language of the most sensational nature
accused 200.000 saloons of the United
States f being responsible for seventy
flve per cent of the misery, shame and
woe that comes to the American people;
be tented the saloons a greater curse
than American slavory and the evil re-
suits of our late war combined. He
claimed that poverty, profanity, la ceny,
lying and murder were all the legiti.
mate offering of the American saloons;
that th;y send to our prisons 100,-
000 every year, reducing 200,000 chil
dren to worse than orphanage; add 600,
000 to tl e long list of drunkards, and you
send mo -e than 60,000 citizens to a pre
mature crave, and consume $900,000,000
of money annually, while be argued that
less than 140.000.000 are expended for
the support of the clergy.
The preacher said that the city of
Rock Inland supports tea ministers of
the goepiri who seek to bless and save,
and fifty-one saloons, which he declared,
could no. point to one good feature con
nected with their business. Fie credited
the liquor men ot Rock Island with send
ing flOO to the relief of the Johnstown
flood suflerers, but he thought it should
have bee $1,000 distributed among the
sufferers at home made so by the sa
loons. He accused the saloon of being
responsible for seventy-five per cent of
the sixty pauper families existing in
Rock Island. He stated that of the 479
arrests Bide in Rock Island in 1S39, 127
were for itclual drunkenness, and at least
that many more were caused by the use
If liqucr is essential for medicinal pur-.
poses, suiely we muat.he said, be a sickly

than the "grip' to require the number of

gled with tobacco smoke and filthy to

front of every saloon half way across
the street, and that anything else produc
ing such a stench would be pronounced a
nuisance t.nd moved out of the city and
asslgeed place along with the abattoir
and fertil zing establishment."
Mr. Gu j further declared that for two
hundred years this government has tried
to regulate the liquor traffic by law, but
it has always defied the law. Majorities
can elect a governor or president, but the
liquor traf 1c ignores majorities, and cares
nothing for the will of the people. The
law in Ion a Bays liquor shall not be sold
in that sUte, but every wholesale liquor
establishment In tha nation boasts that
they have evaded and defied that law;
and every t ody in that business rejoices
In the fact that the law is broken. The
law in Illinois is positive regarding the
selling of beer or any kind of liquors to
minors, ye hardly a day passes that you
cannot see children on our streets carry
ing buckets or pitchers of beer. He fur
ther said tiat there was not a saloon in
Rook Islar d but what violated the Sun
day closing law of the Hate.
The eakons he aocused of being the
rendezvous of criminals, and he held that
the crime of the anarchists and of
the Cronic murderers were concocted
in saloons, he made the assertion that
"It is estimated by those who have the
opportunity of knowing, that more than
one-half of the young men of our city
frequent the saloons."
The discaurse throughout was a most
emphatic aid extremely bitter denounce
ment of thf saloons, which were termed
cesspools i'f iniquity, pest bouses and
fountains of desolation. II held that the
only way to check the saloon was to cre

He accused the business men of sus
taining the saloons and said "there are
few business men who are opposed to the
saloons and would vote to annihilate
them." This, he said, was the fault in
Davenport, too. He thought the prohi

distant future and contemplating the time
when the nation baa a prohibition presi

facts about divorce. During the past
twenty years 25,371 couples sought di

Attorney S turgeon entered a nolle prosse
in the case of John McDarrah, charged
with assault to murder. This disposes of
the case in a manner that while wholly
vindicating Mr. McDarrah, it does not do
him entire justice when it is considered
that his character has thus been so
shamefully reflected upon, and that the
injustice which the state's attorney might
have prevented before it came into court,
has cost Mr. McDarrah his position on
the C, B. & Q. road.
