Continued from I'ngp One
spenklng to tho men, Bunday shouted,
with nil tho power of his plerelng volco:
"I tell you, gentlemen of Philadelphia,
Pennsylvania's a blot on the map when
It comes to the whisky proposition."
And nfter he hud yelled this sentence
there went up n long, loud cheer that
made tho rough pillars and rafters of
tho tabernacle tremble. Tho ovangellst
wuved for silence, but for almost half
n mlnulo his nudlonce kept on cheering
nnd applauding. When thero was aulet,
bo continued:
"1 tell you Pennsylvania Is the worst
whlsky-dcimlnnted Statu In tho Union."
Then crime another burst of applnusc,
at the close of which "Hilly" said: "Tho
reason you hnven't got Inws to piohlblt
tho llipior traltlc In Pennsylvania like
you've got to prohibit murder, stealing
and seduction Is because jou'vo. got n
lot of politicians who uro Just pnwnu on
tho chessboard of that filthy liquor gang."
And annln there wna n cheer.
The preacher made a strong nppcnl to
the clci(,ymen and church members to
practice whnt thoy preach and to help
bring Pennsylvania Into tho "dry"
columns "no that her nninfl may be
clenr.'il of the stain that has come upon
It through tho llriuor-made laws." Stand
on the pulpit, "Hilly" waved hla arms
and dccl.ired:
"When I'm through with Philadelphia
you can tnko me to the Brhuylklll or the
Dtluwaro and, nftur tyltiK a millstone to
my neck, drop mo ovtrbonrd. When tho
water covers me you can eny 'there goes
a mnn who wnsn't afraid to tell tho
truth.' And I Intend to keep on telling
tho truth so long n Ood gives me breath
to preach Ills word."
Onco In tho evening sermon Bunday
nguln swayed tho great throng of men
when he Jumped to the top of the pulpit
and fired thl challengo Into the faces
of the audlenco:
"No man alive can say that I preach
from the pulpit anything I don't practice
In my life. I dofy the whole gang!"
And then followed more cheering. Ho
had the audience with him both during
the afternoon and evening, ror he was
keyed up to his highest pitch, and his
acting aroused great enthusiasm. Once,
In order to Illustrate n point In his ser
mon, he plunged to the sawdust nlslo In
tho front of tho platform, taking the
Hoveu feet at n slnglo leap.
This Incident occurred when "Hilly" was
explaining the need of men becoming
active In tho Interests of all that Is good.
Some of tho kind he has designated a
helng "better dead than alive."
"What thnt Ind of men should do,"
ho yelled, "la to go down to the river and
got aboard n ferryboat nnd rldo out to
the inlauie or me river, men may uuhih
to dlvo Into the middle of the river,
shouting an they go over the rail, 'Here
goes nothlnBl' " A he snlil these word
the uvengellst took the leap, landed In
the sawdust on bis feet nnd then trotted
up tho steps and continued to throw hi
hot-shot Into the devil.
His talk on "The Devil' TloomernnB:
or, Hot Cake Off the Griddle," wa a
plaltl man-to-mon talk, He talked Just
it plainly aa though ho were discussing
the subject with a little circle In the back
room of a poolroom-a place where It I
not considered bad form to apeak plain
ly In defense of his unvarnished lan
guage, "Hilly" said!
"There are too many Jackasses who
can't find It possible to talk to men nlong
plaln lines, nnd that' why I have aked
you to come to tho tabernacle." Ha de
fied hi critic to Rive a single reason
