Evening Services of Churches Given up for Big Gather
ing at Broadway Thf ater Rev. W. S, Maclntire and
H. H. Spooner of State Temperance Union Speak Be
sides Clergymen. '
An enthusiastic tio-license tally wa
held Sunday evening in Broadway the
ater, in which the churches of the city
united and the audience present filled
all, the seats on the main floor and In
the balcony, the tipper gallery not be
ink opened. On the stage, where the
rpeakers and the male chorus of twen
ty voice were seated, floral decora
tions had' been attractively arranged
by t.e CCiitial i Baptist Young Peo
ple's Union ,and In the rear was a big
poster with tha pictures of a boy and
a girl, around which Wore the words:
"The Saloon or the Boys and Girls.
The Real Issue." No-license literature
wa handed to all entering.
Df, Kaufman Speaks.
O. B. ftyther opened the service by
announcing a hymn for which- the
chorus led the Singing, conducted by
Frederic W. Lester. Dr. M. S. Kauf
man, D. D.,of - Trinity Methodist
church was the first speaker in a vig
orous address, at the end of which he
Introduced Rv. W.S.MacIntireof Hart
ford, en of the secretaries of the Con
nectlcut Temperance Union. We have
come to a critical hour, in the history
our rum -ridden, saloon cursed city
This very night our own city is ex
isting under a bondage to the liquor
traffic, more debasing than African
slavery, and Suffering under a despot
ism more galling than that Inflated
upon the Cubans by Spain. I call up
on ?ou--men of Norwich to witness
the fact that many of our best citizens
are wearing' shackles on their hands,
riveted thero by the accursed liquor
traffic and padlocks upon their lips,
placed thefe By the same despotic
power. They d;tre not speak and act
in keeping with the clear dictates of
their consciences ahd the noble Im
pulses of their hearts. This tyran
nical traffic has them in its vice-like
grip. Do not blame too severely, but
give your Sympathetic support to those
public officials who really want to do
their duty, bul are dominated by the
frightful pressure brought to bear up
on thorn by the .strong- drink tyrant
Do you say turn them out and put in
fearness men? I will answer: First
Where will you find th more fearless
men? and, second. It often happens,
lrt the n tempt to elect such, the liquor
tralHC beats yoU and and puts in worse
Not then, rSmCmber, the Maine, but
remember the crimes, curses and cru
elties which for thirty years have been
inflicted upon this town by the legal
ized saloon; remember the homes and
hearts it has wrecked and ruined;
remember Franklin square with its
disgraceful array of rum shops; re
member the Globe saloon, running
Wide 6pn Without A license; remem
ber the underhanded and brutal .meth
ods of the liquor traffic in the present
struggle remember the blackmail,
black hand policy by which it seeks
to intimidate Voters; remember that
on one side Of this battle are the sa
loon, the gambling den, the brothel,
and on the other side are the home,
the school, tha church. Which Side
are you on? Remember when you vote
fof license you vote for ail the natural,
inevitable consequences of the legal
ized saloon. Remember the chains
and padlocks of your fellow citizens.
Remember that citizenship is a great
responsibility and for its use or abuse
you will be called to give an account
to your own sense ef manhood to
your conscience and to God. Vote
your honest convictions and be a i-an.
not a slave.
Rev. W. E. Maclntire Speaks.
Following the" applause which- greet
ed Dr. Kaufman's words, Rev. Mr.
Maclntire took up the argument
against tha saloon, saying that we are
forced to deal with this business as
with no other, and in our treatment
of It by state law we are trying- to
eliminate all the danger we can from
a recognized dangerous business. From
previous acquaintance with the tactics
of the opposition, he said, he might
forecast something- that they would
do. Along about the last hour before
election they might be expected to is
sue Some startling statements, but take
these with a large dose of salt for the
no-license people have discovered that
such statements coming: from the liq
uor men are absolute falsehoods. They
lie like Beelzebub, said the speaker,
when they try to support tneir busi
It Is also an argument of the opposl
tion that you will have to raise your
tax rate and you can't get along- with
out the revenue from the fees from li
censes. According to the cOunty com
missioners report, tne revenue in Nor
wich from license fees last year was
$35,280. What have you got and what
have they grot in return? What have
you lost? Allowing that each saloon
Started1 One man on the road to ruin
In the year, you ve sold your men for
$400 per head, less than the price of a
slave boy before the War. Norwich
men are worth more than $400 apiece.
The Saloon men have cheated you and
you've accepted th money. A year
ago tne state president or tne Liquor
Dealers association saw in a conven
tion in Norwich that the average sa
loon In Connecticut costs its owner $4,-
000 a year, and this receipts were J6,
800. On these ahowines the saloon
too out of Norwich $598,000 and re
turned $36,280. Will the tax collector
like td Collect the tax on that basis?
The liquor interests have hired Mr.
Klein to go around the state, said
Rv. Mr. Maclntire, following the tem
perance speakers, and you'll hear from
Mr. Klein that there's more misery,
drunkenness and crime In tio-license
places than in license territory; more
in Maine under prohibition than in
Minnesota under license. As a matter
6 tact It IS Sobriety, Industry and com
fort tinder no-license, opposted to de
bauchery, misery and crime under li-
cens. The Jails are full -under license,
but rve lived under no-license where
the jails were empty. They said in
Kansas When rrohibitlon went Into ef
fect that the grass would be growing
in the streets. "Then we'll raise more
hoa and leas hell," said a Kansas
man, Tou'll have better Streets and

H. H. Spooner Spoke.
Rev. E. 8. Worcester of Broadway
Congregational church spoke briefly
In Introducing Hon. 11. 11. Spooner of
Hartford, who wa to be the next
speaker. He commended Hon. Mr.
Spooner as a man eminently fitted to
set tilings right.
The speakers' topld was The Com
mon Good, but before taking this tip
he explained by request two of the
provisions of the new license law.
One, he said, was especially fitted to
touch the case of saloons on Water
street within 200 feet of the Metho
dist church. It wa the provision about
the locating of. saloons near a church
or School house. No new licenses could
be granted but old ones could be
renewed. The second point was on
the limitation bill, through which he
showed if Norwich should vote for
no -license and then return to license,
It would come back Under the limita
tion law with a much smaller num
ber of saloons than how.
There were two teasons, he said,
why to Vote no-llcense: First, it is
always wrong to do wrong; Second,
you permanently limit the number of
plague spots in a town. He could
make a good argument On the finan
cial side, he said, but took up the
question of what does th saloon do
for the individual.
Is there a man who 1 a -better work
man because i he was carried home
drunk last night or an employer who
sees more possibilities In a boy be
cause he knows he spends, his even
ings in a saloon? Did you ever know
a man wanted fof any occupation be
cause he was drunk? So the saloon
business is a Curse, because unfitting
the man for any occupation in shop
and factory, and you know It There
is mors of a study too of heredity and
in nine cases out of ten the special
ists are studying and the scientists de
claring that If the boy - and girl of the
future is to bo of strong body and brain
the fathers and mother must be free
from Intoxicant. Physically the trail
or tms serpent of intemperance is seen
in mental and physical degenerates of
our institutions Morally, tod, seventy
per cent, of inmates of the state re
formatories can lay their downfall to
liquor, and 97 out of every lot In penai
Institutions can find the .cause in
liquor. H6 related an experience of a
man in his employ whose career had
been blasted bv Honor, from Which
Mr. Spooner had made the vow that
as long as he lived he would hit this
cursed thing. He closed with an elo
quent appeal for the Voters of Norwich
to put away this thing that IS sending
men Out into th dark in spite of
preacher, church and every good thing
tnat can tie done.
After a few word bv Mf. Ryther the
service closed by the singing of Amer
Spok at First Baptist.
At th First Baptist church Sunday
morninr a temperance service was
held With O. E. Ryther and Rev. W.
