Expectant Crowd Awaits Arrest
The arrest of Mrs. Evans and Mr.

; in the annals of Norwich police cir-
A surging crowd estimated at a

down Ferry street to the automobile
from which Mrs. Evans started to make
her address on "Freedom of Speech.
The fact that the Socialist Party intend
ed to hold the meeting in defiance of
Mayor Lerou's order had gained wide
publicity anl long before 8 o'clock
the hour set for the meeting, the crowd
began to gather. Ferry street and part
of Main street was a mass of expectant
humanity that had gathered to see the
fireworks. Sidewalk traffic was block
ed.. Men. women and children
eagerly awaited the arrival of the woman
speaker. Half a dozen times there were
cries of "here she is '." "There's Boardman."
and then the crowd would clamor, and
push and strain their necks to get' a
glimpse of the woman who intended open
ly to defy the mayor.
A minute or two after 8 oclock Mrs.
Evans made her appearance escorted by
Mr. Boardman. The crowd broke into
cries of "She is here," "Make way there,"
"Let her through."
After considerable difficulty-Mrs. Ev
ans and Mr. Boardman succeeded in
reaching . Mr. Boardman's automobile
which had been parked on Ferry street.
Mrs. Evans took a seat in the machine
and a few minutes later arose to speak.
"I am one of the old fashioned Amer
ican women." said Mrs. Evans. "I be
lieve in the Declaration of Independence
and I believe the Constitution of ' the
United States guarantees free speech."
Police Give Orders
At this point. Police Serg nt John H.
Kane who was standing near the ma
chine with Officer Daniel O'Neil, said to
Mrs. Evans. "You will have to stop."
"Very well," said Mrs. Evans to the
officer and to the crowd, "this meeting it

Mrs. Evans then referred to her own
exexperience at Lawrence during the last

had assaulted and clubbed strikers who
did not resist arrest, and when these
open breaches of the law by officers were
condoned by the courts and by public
opinion of those classed as the "best peo

experiences in connection with the trials
of radicals in Boston.

Statement by J. I., Spirak
After the meeting J. L. Spivak, repre
senting the American Civil Liberties
Union,, under whose, auspices . the free
speech test meeting was held in con
junction with the socialist party, issued
me following statement:
The arreste of Mrs. Glendower Evans
for attempting to exercise her richts as
an American citizen, guaranteed to her by
the Constitution ot the United States,
only proves how far autocracy can go if
it is not checked in time. The autocratic
atlempt of Mayor Lerou to run Norwich
in a high-handed manner, contrary to the
established laws of the State of Connec
ticut and the United States of America,
will be tested out in the courts by Mrs.
Evans' case. The excuse offered by May
or Lerou that the city officials have a
perfect right to govern the streets is ae
ceeded. But the city officials seem to for
get that they do not ave the slightest
right to turn the Constitution into a
scrap of paper.
"The sympathy with whicji the citizens
of Norwich viewed the free speech test
is eloquently testified to by the record
breaking crowd which gathered to hear
Mrs. Evans speak and later went to
Steiner's hall, to hear what the mavor
arbitrarily decreed they shall not hear.
The gauntlet has been thrown down by
ine mayor in refusing to permit the c?n
stitutlonal rights of free spech and
peaceableassemlilage. It has been taken
up by true Amer'cans and lovers of lib
erty that we believe are in the vast ma
jority in Norwich and it will be tested

TWO LEGHORN FENS. GO
i PAST HIGH WATER MARK
In the forty-ninth week of the egg
laying contest at Storrs two more pens,
both Leghorns, have passed the high
water mark. This makes a total of five
pens that have laid 2,000 eggs or more
to date. In the 1914 contest only two
pens had passed the high-water mark
at the end of the forty-ninth week.
Their respective production was 2,038
and 2,011 eggs. In 1915 none of the
100 pens had reached the 2.000 mark at
the end of the forty-ninth week. In the
1917 contest only two pons had been
able to reach an average of 200 eggs per
hen. These pens laid 2035 and 2075 re
spectively. In the 1918 contest two more
pens were able to repeat the perform
ance by laying 2,071 and 2,230 eggs. In
the 1919 contest no pens had reached
the high-water mark. In the present
contest Jules F. Francais' pen of Barred

Oneck Farm's Barred Rocks from

with a yield of 46 eggs. Pinechest Or

place with a lay of 39 eggs. A pen of
White Rocks owned by Chickatawbut
Farm, Canton, Mass.. and a pen of
White Leghorns owned by A. P. Robin
son, Calverton, N. Y., both tied for
fourth place with 38 eggs each. The
total for all pens was 2.0S3 eggs or a
yield of 29.4 per cent.
One of the outstanding features of the
present contest is that a Barred Ply
mouth Rock owned by Rock Rose Farm,
Katonah, N. T.. laid 77 eggs in 77 days.
If this hen had laid one more day she
would have laid 104 eggs in 104 davs.

in 64 days.

Invites Mayor's Stenographer to Seat
Mr. Boardman called the meeting to
gether and before introducing Mrs. Ev
ans said he understood that Mayor Le

Mrs. Evans' address and he extended the

Mrs. Evans Speaks
Mrs. Evans then made her address,
speaking on the topic "Free Sneech "
I cam down to Norwich to speak at the
invitation of a local committee," said
Mrs. Evans. ""I am one of the old fash
ioned Americans who believe in the fun
damentals of our institutions as laid
down by our fathers.' I believe In the
Declaration of. Independence and in the
constitutional guarantees of free speech,
free press and free assemblage. I have
come down here to make a protest and
to issue a challenge.
We are living in abnormal conditions
I raise the question whether disturbing
events are allayed or- whether they are
stimulated by denial of free speech. I
believe that suppression of sneech em
phasizes and stimulates the signs of the
times' that fill people with anxiety. Free
speech itself is the thing that will give
us the cure.
After a brief discussion on "rights"
Mrs. Evans went on to say, I don't want
to change the government or overthrow
the government. Where are your rights
if a court or legislature is going to de
cide whether your opinions are good or
wnetner tney are harmful.
vvhat I claim is the rieht of the neoDle
to voice thetr opinions. If the majority of
the people fool that the government is
all right, then it stays that way. But
the minority should have the right to ar
gue their opinions. v "
I claim.that in this unrest that it is the
government itself that has brought the in
stitutions of the government into dis
credit. I say that in many instances the
government itself has led the way In law
breaking and lawlessness.
'This may seem a rash statement. As
my authority I refer you to a report
signed by twelve reputable lawyers,
among them Rocoe Pound, Dean of the
Harvard Law school, relating to what
are entitled the Illegal Practices of the
United States Department of Justice.
"From this document It Is proved be
yond . a preadventure that the United
States Department of Jutice in Its deal in
with aliens under suspicion of being com
munists, committed the grossest affronts
to every principle of American constitu
tional liberties. Persons were arreted
and Imprisoned and tried without due
process of law. To auote. the words of
band played a number of patriotic selec
tions. Joseph W. Carlevale. director of the
Americanization Institute was the speaker
of the evening. His address, though brief,
was interesting. In part he said:
Today is indeed a great dav for it Is
Columbus Day. Today millions of neoDle
have been thinking about Columbus and
tne Italians should be more than glad
oecause it was- Italy that produced hi
America has now rrown to be the
greatest country of the world.
Columbus day is becoming a national
holiday and I am glad that the Italians
of Norwich have gotten up this parade
as a gratitude to the great discovers.
For it was he who sailed on. day after
day, across the trackless ocean ; his
men begged him to turn back, but he
would not and through faith and cour
age he arrived at the promised land. Had
he no ambition, no faith, no aim, had he
remained with his father in the trade ci
wool carder, surely he would have never
discovered this continent. But he was
not conservative but progressive, and be
cause of those sterling qualities of his
he accomplished what no other man
dared. Let us. my countrymen, profit by
those wonderful examples of faith ann
courae--- which Columbus endured, fon-rht
and die odfr.
A vote of thanks was given to the
Italian band which responded by playing
other selections and to the Italian Labor
Union and to the following who made
contributions for the occasion:
