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 num. 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 ness. 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 cleaner homes if you vote "No" than if you vote "Yes ' He aws loudly ap plauded. A hymn written especially for the campaign by Mrs. M. S. Kaufman to the music of Marcnmg Tnrougn Geor gia was sung ty thc t'lrtien.-.e, led by th ehorus.- iMr. Ryther made the fol lowing announcements of evening ral lies lor the week: Rallle of the Week.

Thev had wanked to hold It in the tow, hall. but they couldn't hav it there. "Don't you own th town hall?" inquired Sec retary Spooner of. the Connecticut Temperance union. 'No. It seem not," replied Mr. Ryther, "on man -does, and he aye W Can't hav the meeting there." Mr. Ryther then ask ed anyone present who had any ob jections to their using the town hall to say so, fthd when no one responded he requested that those in the theater say so on Monday to the powers that be. . A collection was taken, Mr. Ryther explaining th need of money in the campaign, as he said it was reported thst every saloon in the city had been assessed $100, giving- them $8,200 for thi fight 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 ica. Spok at First Baptist. At th First Baptist church Sunday morninr a temperance service was held With O. E. Ryther and Rev. W. S. Maclntire as speakers. fn the absence of Mr. Clarence Hulburt, leader of the choir, Mrs. Charle Pierce was heard with tnuch pleasure.
