Were Here ?nd Made Great Impression Upon Those Who Attended. Those who did not a'tend the moot ing hold 5,i the interest of prohibition lost evening In the court house miss ed ono of tho rarest treats that hos ever come within reach of the most favored of Anderson's people, both In music and the oratory and sound ar guments of the speakers. Much to the regret of all, only about 150 men and about IG women attended. Tho speakers, Oliver Wayne Stew art of Chicago, former member of the house of representatives from the state of illinois, and J. Frank Manly, formerly governor of the state of In di? na, and tlie soloist, Miss Vera K. M..illili of Indiana, the famous singer of the 'Flying Squadron of America, wore Introduced by Senator J. L. Sherard, who stated the purpose of the meeting and the necessity of the voter? going to tho polls on Septem ber 14, to cast their votes. Tho first number on the program was tho song. "America." led by Miss Muilin. Till?; was followed by pray er offered by Dr. J. M. Harrison, pastor of tho Associate Reformed Presbyterian church of this city. Miss Mu Hin then sang a solo. "The Nation IB Oolng Dry," which met with such hearty approval that as an en chore she rendered, "That Homo That Used to Tie." Miss Muilin is a won derful singer and has a clear, brilliant soprano voice. The decided accent of the words of thc songs and the pleas ing and effective expression of her countenance added much to the Im pression of the singing as did also the fact that she had a sympathetic ac companist in the person of Miss Iris E. Robinson of Indiana, the pianist who lins been traveling with Miss Muilin In ber tour with members of the Flying Squadron. The singing of this young lady cannot be praised too highly, and those who did mot hoar her. lost an opportunity of hav ing heard one of tho greatest artist? that has ever come to this city. Mr. Stewart's Address. After the Bongs Mr. Oliver Wayne Stewart was Introduced and for nearly an hour he held his audience with sound, forceful arguments against tho liquor trame and its dealy influence from a business standpoint. His address was by far one of tho most convincing proofs that whiskey 1? evil from the view of a business man and his way of thinking that was ever heard In this section of the state. In the beginning Mr. Stewart said that he was going to discuss the bus iness side of the liquor trafile and he asked the question. "Is it really a benefit to a city, state or nation?" tn answer to this Mr. Stewart state I that business grows out of tho strug gle in Ufe to get the necessities of existences food and clothing, and that these necessities brought abc-at the production, distribution- and irnnsprv tation of these necessary products, which is the foundation of tho busi ness world. Mr. Stewart then discussed market - which weare brought about by the nec essities of Ufo. stating that the nec essities brought about one-tenth of the demand for food, clothing, fur niture, etc.. the other ulne-tenths be ing brought about by the desire- of man. In-explaining this thc apeador stated that, whiskey by producing the. drunkard'destroyed all of the finer qualities which causo him to want those things that are not actual nec essities hut which aro greatly des'r ed, thereby destroying that which created nine-tenths of the demand for marketa and therefore business. Another point brought out by Mr. Stewart was that no mannufacturing concern was ashamed of lia finished product it it meant to continue in business, but the whiskey dealers ?Te ashamed of their's and never adver able to be dependent primarily bn the stated that the drunkard was their finished product and that he had the first time to see one of these placed ctn exhibition in a wire cage at a coun ty or state fair or at a national ex position . Mr. Stewart then discussed th? question which is pat up by those la favor ot laws allowing the liquor traf fic, namely, that it Is a source of re venue. He ?tated that it is not a source of revenue because it ls not a source of wealth and that revenue must come from wealth. All wealth can be expressed in labor and proper ty and TWhtskey destroys both of these. Mr. Stewart closed his speech by stating that in April the city of Chica go would vote on the question of pro hibition and the reason he waa here was because of the fact that if South Carolina veted down liquor it would greatly assist the people of Chicago In waging their fight. Thia address was followed by anoth er solo by Miss Mullins, which was temperance words sung to the tuna of "Annie Laurie." Kx-Uorernor Heal];. Mr. J. Frank Hanly's Speech was an attack oa the liquor trafile from a moral standpoint and it waa one of the most profound aod deepest ar guments that has ever hean brought before tho people of Anderson. Mr. Henty baa a deep base voice und speak? his words with a ejear-cut Coree, which added grtAtly to his ar gument. He stated tba? South Carolina vs? rguments Prohibition now living la a dynamic hour when John Barleycorn wau on the defen sive and waa begging for mercy. He ?aid that from a moral standpoint he wo? being driven back and from an economical standpo.irt alsn. Ye?, ??lui Ha'leycorn wis asking mercy at the hand", of the otrple-mercy 1er nim who tor the past 1.000 yearn ha>> had none on the human race, and tor one who nai- wrecked and d v/xo/rd million? ol lives ano billions of dol lar:- wot th of property, ile asked the people il ?ney were now going f. kraut ino.ty to John Barleyco/q o> wer*- ihoy going to K-ll him outright. Ile (dated that some put up th3 ar gunvmt tliat the Uv : ted Stutts. ww a free country and waen the peep'? vot fd down licuor they ;<.ok a man's own pr. sonni i'rbts away Mr. Iliu'y very explicitly explained that a niar.'s own nersonal rights were not his when he i.ld a thin<? that injuree or places lils fellowman in a dangerous position. This point was clearly il lustrated. ??nd the effect of the argu ment could be seen by the expressen on the facet of those In the sullener. Mr. Manly closed his speech bv st?tt iiiR thu: bc had traveled all over thf United .-tates as a member o'. tho Flying ?a.npi'ron and that he v::s ."i thc fight to the finish. He ntaied tuat lb flati s liad already vot?-d state wide |.rohib!tlon and that on l-?o lita of this month he wished to see South t'aroli'ia take her stand In the column as thc ifltli. The meeting was then closed by s solo by Miss 'Miullln, "I IJO\B the V. S A.." willoh was written ?or her by William Hardy, a composer in boston. This song was so well liked that a number of copies were sold at the close of tho meeting.
