. Address 8unday Evening at tho
Methodist Church.
There was a good attendance at the
Methodist church Sunday evening. The
pastor. Rev. W. O. Nuium, spoke on
The Saloons of Willimantflo. Mr.
Nuzum has made a personal study of
the saloons of this city, visiting them,
and has Been conditions as they really
are. He said In part:
Man is the only animal in the world
who is real ten etory fool, the only
animal who willfully and constantly
will go to his destruction. No other
animal will do it. Yet generation after
generation of men follow the same
course in the same way under the
same circumstances to the same de
struction. Alexander the Great was
only 32 years old when he was con
queror of the world, but he became a
victim of drink and died prematurely.
Robert Burns died poor and forsake
because of drink. Byron wandered an
exile all over the world because of
We are living In a land that Is the
I most enlightened, the most temperate.
most wonderful land, the greatest na
tion, the last 50 years living In the
greatest age the world has ever known.
They used to test a nation by Ma
armies; better wring their necks than
have that kind of a test. The best
way to . test a nation is not by its
corn or ' cotton. A nation's greatness
is its mechanical genius. America is
the greatest industrial nation on earth.
Mechanical genius will harness nature,
will raise more crops, bring more lux
uries and larger education. These are
the tests of greatness. We produce
more of the world's needs than any
other nation. In the last 50 years
two-thirds of the great discoveries
have been made in the United States.
What's the matter with England to

The Methodist church is the enemy
of the saloon. In the state of all
states that for 40 years has held fast
to temperance Kansas every fifth
man is a Methodist. Kansas has more
wealth per capita, more children in
the colleges, in schools, because they
haven't had any booze there in 40
What's the matter with our city
here? The greatest evil In America is
the American saloon. It is the worst
institution on earth. You have not
got in the city of Willimantic an ideal
American saloon. I have looked them
over and you haven't a gilded saloon
in the city. Every last one of them
are dirty, contemptible places. They
haven't enough mirrors for some of
you women to fix your hats with. The
only good looking feature of the sa
loons are the men behind the bar. You
haven't got an American saloon here
because most of them are foreign sa
loons. Out of the average attendance of
these saloons on Saturday night be
twepn 9 and 11, of about 20 men, not
a business man was to be found. By
their language about 60 per cent, of
the men in these saloons were foreign
ers. You don't have in Willimantic an
average. American saloon. You know
why? Because your business men are
too particular to drink in these dirty
places. The danger and viciousness
of this community are in your clubs.
In the fire rooms, in these so-called
select places, that's where your busi
ness men and boys are getting their
liquor, and not in these saloons.
I give you warning that if I stay in
this city I ehajl find every one of these
places and we shall fight them earnest
ly. I don't want to mention any of
your societies, but I will mention them
after I have made an investigation of
There are something like 23 saloons
in this city. The proprietors are near-
y all foreigners. Most of the bartend
ers were American young men. They
are men who will not drink themselves.
They confess that they are In a dirty
business and would to God they were
wout of it. There wasn't a man either
proprietor or bartender who defended
his business but one.
What are you going to do about it?
The easiest thing in the world would
be to kick those saloons out. It is the
so-called upper class, social societies,
clubrooms, firehouse3 that your boys
are tempted night after night. Shame
on the community that permits sucn
a thing as that. I honor the brave fire
laddies, men who risk their lives to
save my property and yours. You have
no business to allow them to have this
thing that goes to ruin their lives.
That is the thing that is going to be
hard to get out of this community.
If we had ten men of real genuine
God -like, temperance sentiment who
would stand shoulder to shoulder we
could drive this iniquity out and keep
it out.
Save these men from themselves.
Save these bartenders for an honorable
business. Save the proprietors from
the damnation of the American sa
loon. Save these boys from the
temptations of clubs. Save the com
munity and you will save the boy and
the girl and save society. God grant
It for His name's cake.
Last of Union Services.
The last of the union services was
held at the Gem theatre Sunday even

Raymond Knapp of North Windham
attempted to board the Boston express
as it was pulling out of the local sta
tion Saturday noon and had a narrow
escape from serious injury. He was
on Railroad street when the train
started and ran down the street to get
on. He grabbed at the railing of the
platform of the rear car and was
swung into the air and he landed on
his face In the slush and ashes. He
was rendered unconscious for awhile
and was taken in the railroad station
and a physician sent for. By the
time the doctor had arrived Knapp had
recovered and showed no signs of in
Jury other than a lacerated face. The
express does not stop at North Wind
ham but he evidently forgot about that
when he attempted to board the train
while It was in motion.

Members of C. A. C. Would Be Ready
to Respond Promptly if Call to Ser
vice Came.
There was something suggestive of
the days of 'OS when the members of
the Thirteenth company got to talk
ing about the Mexican situation Satur
day, after reading in the morning pa
pera of the advance of United States
regulars into Mexican territory. The
paragraphs in the despatches dealing
with the possibility or the militia be
ing called out for active service were
of special interest to the local coast
artillerymen, many of whom wouldn't
mind a call to don their uniforms for
a tour of active service.
"While the local command is official
ly rated as a coast artillery company,
it is equipped and prepared for ser
vice as infantry and could respond to
a call for service within a very few
hours. The company is fully equipped
for duty, needing only the attention of
the commissary department and ample
ammunition to make it an effective
field force for war duty.
There isn't any Inclination among
the men to get real excited over the
chance of being ordered out for ser
vice, however, half a dozen previous
false alarms on the Mexican question
having produced a state of mind that
does not flurry over rumors and pos
sibilities any more.
Tho company at present numbers 64
members. Many of them are men who
have served long terms in the state
organization and are close to the
equals of regular troops. Then there
are some Spanish war veterans in the
list. These particularly would like
chance at Mexican service-
Should the company be ordered out
it is not thought likely that it would
be required to do more than replace
regular troops ordered from their home
station to the front. Purely as a spec
ulative proposition, it is considered
here that this company, in case of a
call, might be sent to some of the
sound fortifications below New Lon
don. to relieve regulars. The Thlr
teenth company has had its annual
encampment for several years past at
Fort Wright, Fishers Island, and pre
vious to that at Fort Mansfield, Napa'
tree Point, near Watch Hill.
It is believed very likely that the
membership of the local company
would be promptly swelled to war
strength in case there is a chance for
the company to go out. There are
numerous brave spirits here who
would like nothing better than
chance at active service, and while
there has been no word said officially
there may be a chance for them to go
before long.
