sending much food to the countries at
war but in so doing we have not been
economical, with our own food sup
ply at home. The average cropage of
the country in grain alone has fallen
20 millions below the average for pre-
ceeding years. One great leakage Is
in the production of liquor. Millions
of bushels go for the making of that
stuff which does no good to man but
destroys all who fall victims of the
rum habit. Every idler must be put
to worn and we must do our bit even
as other countries are doing theirs.
Rev. Mr. Ricketts' remarks were
greeted with applause.
Following Re Mr. Ricketts' talk the
chairman introduced George S. Pal
mer of New London.
Mr. Palmer spoke as follows:
The liquor traffic is the curse of
the nation. Scientists are against it,
medical organizations are against it,
charitable organizations have to fight
it and missions Work against it. It
is the cause of the greatest part of
the misery in the countrv tcday. vVe
must make up our minds to rid the
nation of the saloon. The question
arises, when and how? There was
a time when a man expected his help
to drink but that day is past and ev
ery employer realizes that the drink
ing man is inefficient. The time has
come when we must make our stand
to abolish rum from the nation. In
the city of New London there are 75
licensed saloons where, according to
law, there should be only about 4T?
Something is decidedly wrong. .i a
hearing in Hartford one Polish boy
made a plea for no license by sayme
that his people should be given a
chance to be sober American citizens
When a boy of foreign birth who can
hardly epeak English, makes a plea
like that it is time something was
Gustav T. Bochman. field secretary
of the Connecticut Temperance Union,
was the next speaker. He spoke in
place of H. H Spooner of New Brit
ain wsa was unable to be present ow
ing to illness. Mr. Bochman told of
the state prison and the jails through
out the state, saying that 80 or 00 p r
cent of the inhabitants of these in
stitutions are there because of rum
either directly or indirectly. The li
quor dealers put up the plea tnat li
cense reduces taxes but it does n-t.
For every dollar that was taken ii
last year for license $3 was put ou
either for jails or to relieve the suf
fering of those that have been af
flicted by the results of drink. Tho
saloon gives nothing to the nation, it
takes away from it. England has just
as many bums now as It did before
the war for those drunkards can nei
ther fight nor work at home so they
are a drag on the nation. The Fame
condition is true of the United States.
Now is the time to atop it. et us
start now.
Walter E. Lanphear of Hartford ad
dressed a few remarks, summing up
the liquor question in a few wrrds.
Let us make a stand now and put li
quor forever from the nation. Mr.
Lanphear proposed that the meeting
adopt resolutions to further the cause
of prohibition in Norwich.
Rev. J. H. Newlands addressed the
chairman of the meeting and proposed
the following resolutions which were
Resolved, That we, the members cf
the Brotherhoods of the Norwich
churches, desire to express our inter
est in and our approvaf of the efftrt
now being made to give power to the
governor to close the saloons in the
state of Connecticut during the period
of the war, and that we desire oir
representatives at Hartford to favor
this measure.
Resolved, Second, that we hear with
delight of the efforts being made ai
Washington to conserve the food sup
plies for a hungry world by pruh. bit
ing the use of foodstuffs for the man
ufacturing of drink. Wo believe It
will both conserve the ood and pre
serve the morals of our people.
Resolved, That we think it desir
able to have an educational campaign
in our city in which there shall be set
forth the moirTT, economic and social
evils of the drink traffic, nnd in which
we shall seek to secure a vote on the
question of license or no-license in
the city and town of Norwich.
Resolved, That we appoint a com
mittee of six, in addition to the chair
man of this meeting, whose duty it
shall be to organize and plan for this
campaign. The committee shall have
power to add to its number as it shall
see fit.
It was voted to appoint a committee
to go ahead and formulate plans for
the carrying out of the resolutions.
The committee appointed was as fol
lows: Herbert Johnson. chairman,
Frank A. Arnold, Amos A. Brown n?,
Rev. J. H. Newlands, Myron B. Pren

that ate off more of the toe than they
