for last week. The" first set was bom

By Request, Special Show,
Old Time Democratic
, Political Thunder
The members of the Alliance Rotary
club, which assays about )!) per cent
pure nnd impure republican, were priv
ileged to hear nm impassioned and in-'
tensely partisan democratic speech at;
the Wednesday evening dinner at the
I'iilm JUtom of the Amance hotel. The i
orator was IJotr.rian Hairy E. Gantz, ;
and it was purely the fortunes of war'
that he was permitted to make that
kind of a speech in company which
was so badly in need of it. There were
five speakers at the dinner, all drawn
by lot and sentenced to speak on a'
topic that was handed them by the
Mr. Gantz made the most of his op
portunity. He gave a long list of dem-1
ocratic achievements during the eight
years the party was in power, played
up the successful outcome of the war
for all it was worth, and then spoke
harshly of the failure of the present
republican administration. Mr. Gantz'
took a tremendous risk in telling the
plain, unvarnished truth to the repub
lican members of the club, and got
away with it. He rose to heights of
oratory when he denounced the repub
licans for the 121 investigations that
had been made in a futile effort to show
up the democratic administration in
its conduct of the war. Mr. uantr I
subject was "My Political Tarty and
Why I Belong to It." i
Dr. H. A. Copsey drew "What the
Average Woman Considers Her
Pights," and he hadn't discussed the
subject for over two minutes before
the club realized that he was speaking
from experience. j
Charles Fuller discussed "The Ad
vantages of Being Forty-five Years of
Age." He gave some interesting
references to an article by Wallace
Irwin on the same subject, and then
added some observations of his own
that were equally pertinent.
A. V. Gavin spoke on "What thev
City Manager Plan of Government Has
Done for Alliance." It is too early, ne
explained, to say just what the plan
will accomplish, inasmuch as it has
been in effect in the city for little
more than half a year, but in that time
City Manager Kemmish has more than
saved his salary. There have been
ravings in practically every depart
ment cf the city's activities, the pay
roll in every department having been
cut down. A water ma;n extension,
for which bonds of $10,000 had been
votd, was put in for a little over ?G,
000 from other city funds when it was
discovered that there was a technical
ity that prevented the, issuance of
bonds. The city's biggest nuisance,
the septic tank, is being made efficient,
nnd this nt very small expense and
without hiring expensive outside labor.
The biggest problem for the future i.i
the storm sewer, as some plan must
be devised to care for the flood waters,
The present plan simply dumps this
water into the lowlands east of the
city. Mr. Gavin said that the council
is well satisfied with the working out
of the plan in Alliance, and with the
ability of the city manager.
W. R. Metz, past president of the
club, was assigned by lot the subject,
"What Are the Rights of the Average
Man." He quoted Blackstone at some
length and discussed the purely legal
aspects of the situation, and then, in
a lighter vein, offered some good ad
vice drawn from his personal exper
ience. The program was something of a
change from the regular run, and was
so successful that the' speakers for
next week were alro drawn by lot. M.
S. Margraves, W. R. Pate, H. P. Cour
sey and Harry F. Thiele were select
ed, and their subjects will be based on
the November issue of the Rotsrian.
The victims w:llnot know the theme
of their discourses, however, until 4
o'clock p. m. of the fatal day.
