Hot Shot for the Liquor Dealers'
A Vlrorotin Reply at Harper's Thea

Adopted In Retaliation for HI Firm
1 tteranr in on the Naloon Traffic.
The announcement that Rev. G.W. Oue
would reply to the resolutions recently
adopted b the Rock Island Liquor Deal
ers' association in reply to the rather
sensational sermoD previously preached
by Mr. Gu i with reference to the saloons
of the cili, drew an immense audience
last t venii g at Harper's theatre, which
Mr. Guehed especially engaged for the
purpose. The text for the discourse was
Kzekiel '3:5 "But In- ttiat tnk.-tli warning shall
Mr. One said:
I am not here this evening to vindicate
myself or I lake an apology regarding the
sermon 1 p reached MiiDdty evening, Jan
Mtih, on t le "Saloon Scourge of Rock
lalaM. That sermon explains itself.
Regarding the liquor dealers' resolu.
Hons I desire to sav that thev have not
disturhed KM in the least. I am never
surprised at anything I see regarding
myself In toe newspapers. For years I
nave heen accustomed to their compli
ments (.nr criticisms; 1 feel myself in
debled to bem for a Rood share of my
success ir church work here and else
where. .9 a general thing I have found
them willing to deal justly with all sides,
and they rieserve grent credit for the way
in which they help to regulate public
sentiment. Once in a while you will
tind a newspaper exceedingly uoprinci
pled, low, untruthful, a cowardly, slan
derous ard most despicable sheet, but
they are tl e exception, and it never pays
to notice taem in anyway as the public
is prepand to set in judgment upon
them, and fully vindicate and most
liiehly res ect those whom they attack
I have lardly understood what motive
the liiiuo! dealers had in passing their
resolution- . I simply preached a gospel
sermon denouncing the saloon business
aa every cUristian minister is expected to
do, anil from the resolutions of the li
quor men I h ive concluded that the ser
mon bit the mark, or else the feathers
would not have down. I am not aorry
that they massed and published their res
olutions, is they have done more to stir
the teuipe-anre sentiment of this country
than anything they have done since the
K tl.I.EIi RKV . HADDOCK
it Sioux L'ily. Iowa. They have gone
all over lie nation, and I h-tve received
letters ot congratulation from every di
rection. Prominent temperance speakers
have, offered tln-ir services to come here
and hegin a prohibition campaign. Some
friends h ive sugi;ested to me that the
resolution! were intended for a scare, and
nr. -fully reading them it looks a little
that way. If that was their o ject they
certainly made a mistake, for I assure
them that this is no, by any means the
first time have been antagonized by the
rum truth '. 1 am well acquainted with
A to tl e effect of such resolutions up
on the M.'thodist church in this city. I
have seen and heard nothing that indi
cates that they are disturbed by them in
any way 1 am sure the Meiholist
chirch ci.n get along without the rum
truffle a veil as the liquor dealt rs its
supporter i and defenders can get along
without t ie Methodist rhnrch Of couise
it would he strange if in so large a church
there wer-not pome cowardly good Lord,
good-dev I sort of persons, who, fearing
the hr.-ad and butter question, or of marr
ing th ir iolitical prospects, or from some
other self sh motive, would cringe to hear
the truth spoken. But as yet I tave
found no such one in my church. I take
it for l1 r n l ell that 1 have their full ens
III! MM at and that they think I am ca
pahle of managing mv own aff-ilrs. I
would no have noticed these resolutions
if it whs not that thev afforded me anoth
it l' od opportunity to lift my voice
tainst the rum traffic. Regarding the
futter ill nunciation of the Methodist
church in Rock Island by the liquor men ,
I wish to say there will be one here and
flourishing when every rum seller is in
his Brave and his soul is standing before
God in judgment Did those gentlemen
think tha the minister of the gospel is to
first find nit where public sentiment is
before hi preaches his sermon? I read
once of a preacher of that kind in Iowa
in an ear y day, when the people bad no
money, b it had raised a tine crop of rye.
He engai ed to preach for a certain con-
grcgHtior and take his pay in rye He
preached several weeks, and no one said
anything to him as to whether his preach
ing pleas Ml them or not. One day he
asked on - of the leading members if his
preachini: was the kind they wanted; if
it was nr t he wanted them to say so, and
he would trv to give them the kind that
would pl'asethem, as the rye he must

THE PEOPLE INTO HEM.
for feat they will not get the rye. I
wonder if the liquor dealers thought that
1 was hi re to cry peace, peace when
there is lio peace. "Oh no, tbey mistake
the callii g of God's minister; it is his bus
iness in the language of the prophet
Isaiah " o cry aloud and spare not, lift
up thy voice like a trumpet and show to
my tiecple their transgressions." If I
am not lo cry out against the evils of the
saloons in I liquor traffic in this city, then
in in Hi s name tell me what evils I am to
denounce, for tbey are doing more dam
age to the people than all other evils put
I am iot here tonight to say that good
substant ial men have not gone into the
liquor b lsiness, hut I do mean to say
that a M spectable citizen can't get under
a disrep liable business and because of
his standing make the business reputable
I; will t ike something more than resolu
tions by the rum sellers to make the peo
ple belii ve that the saloon keeper In his
businest- is on a par with the minister of
the gospel, and his trade as worthy of
respect as the work of the Christian
church. Nobody knows better than the
saloon keeper of the falsity of such reso-
utions. They know too well the shame,
the povrty. the misery and crime result
ing frori their traffic. When I preached
that ser non on the saloon scourge mat
tbey tri -d to condemn. I did it because of
what I had seen In this city as a result
directly or indirectly from the saloon bus
iness. Tbey resolved that I made the at
tack wi .bout any provocation, but what 1
had see i with my own eyes and beard
with or own ears was my provocation.
The ov'-rseer of the poor in tbis city will
tell you that the majority of the paupers
he ha" o help are made such directly or
indin-ctly by the use of strong drink.
A j ml t- of the court told me that a
large nr ajonty or the criminals tirougnt
before dm attributed their mi-fortunes
directly or indirectly to the use of liquor.
A gent eman in tbis city in his place of
businet s pointed ont to me three saloons
all witl.in a stones throw or eacn other.
and eit ler in or in front of each, to bis
knowli dge a man bad been killed. The
things that can be seen every day as the
result of tbis criminal business were the
cause i nd my provocation for preaching
that se mon
The liquor business is a detriment to
society in almost every way financially,
morally and socially, and there Is no good
motive that can be assigned for engaging
in it. We can hardly pick up a daily
paper and not read of some outrage
caused by the use of rim. The liquor
traffic is sending a hundred thousand of
American citizens annually to their
graves. Its ravages are equal and even
worse than our great civil war, slaying as
many every year, besides sending seventy
per cent of the convicts to the pemten
tiary and victims to the insane asylum
and making thousands of pauper homes
Tet in the light of these facts the liquor
dealers in this city resolved that their
business is as respectable as that of the
church of God. Where is the church
whose teachings and influence sends men
to the penitentiary and husbands and
fathers have to abuse tbeir families and
murder peaceful citizens? The church
does not light tbe heavens every five
minutes of the night with the torch of
TTtE DRUNKEN INCKNDIAUY,
but the liquor business in our nation
does. The church does not stain the
earth every fiye minutes of tbe day with
blood shed by the hands of the drunken
assassin, but the rum traffic in this coun
try does. Statistics have been carefully
gathered, so the people are not ignorant
of these facts. The whole traffic is
wrong and the men engaged in it know
it is wrong.
But I want to call your attention to
another resolution of the Liquor Dealers'
association, in which they assert that
they are law abiding citizens. To be law
abiding is to obey without tquiyocation
the laws of the land. Now is it
a fact that the liquor dealers do
that? Do thev not as a business evade
the law and jointly plan to do it? One of
tbe liquor dealers in this city told me
boastingly that be sold more liquor in
Iowa now tbau he did before the pro
hibitory law went into effect. As far as
I have ever come in contact with them,
they all boast that prohibition is a fail
ure and the law is ignored. Everybody
acquainted in Davenport knows that tbe
liquor men unblushingly ride over every
law touching the regulation of their busi
ness that they dare to ignore. Did the
liquor dealers have tbe conceit to think
that thev could make tbe christian peo
ple of Rock It-land and all law-abiding
citizens believe that the saloons here are
law-abiding when drinking men boast
that they can enter them any Sabbath re
gardless of the law? Don't tell me that
they are law-abiding when I have seen
little children carrying buckets and
pitchers of beer from these saloons, when
tbe law emphatically forbids the selling
The trouble with the liquor business in
Rock Island is, that it had its own way
so long, it had come to think it had pad
locked eyery pulpi., every newspaper
and every politician; it had come to be
lieve that the city council and police
force were under its thumb. Is it not a
shhme that men seeking office and poli
ticians in general, will fall down before
it. court its favor and make it promises
even when tbey know they are of some
other political complexion I will not
vote for hny man if I kuow that he caters
to the saloons, anil niv in
fluence will be sgainst t ! em. as far as it
goes, even if they are of my political
creed. Is it not high time in our city
election to cease drawing the political
lines and organize for something better
and higher than party spoils? All around
in our neighboring towns temperance
men are anxious to know the position
he merchants and business men of this
city are taking regarding the liquor traf
fic. The Imps between the rum traftV
are beiug continually more closely drawn
The fact is the fight is on ami the liquor
dealers know it and are sensitive over it
