"DRY" NATION
Mass Meetings Approve Plan
for March of Women
to Capitol.
W.C.T.U. HEADS PRESIDE
Mrs. Armor, "Georgia Cyclone' Stirs
Her Many Hearers Children
Gire Songs.
Loudlv voicing their approval of the
plan to hold a mass meeting Wednesday,
vhen about one thousand women will
march to the Capitol and demand a
constitutional amendment stamping: out
the tale of liquor all over the country,
audiences which crowded the Columbia
Theater, rirst Congregational Church,
and St Paul's Lutheran Church, jester
day afternoon provided a fitting climax
to (he greatest anti-liquor manifestation
ever seen in Washington.
The mass meetings were carefully
planned, and worked out by Mrs. Emma
'Sanfonl Shellon, president of the Wash-
ington W. C. T. U., and were attendee
bv women temperance workers of na-,
tlonal and world-wide fame, national
officers of the organzatlon presiding
over the three meetings. Mrs. Lillian
J! N. Stevens, president of the national
.organization, presided at the Columbia
Theater meeting' I
Mrs Mary Harris Armor, of Georgia,
tailed the "Georgia oclone." whose
ords literally took her audience off their
Jett was the prlncapal speaker at the
.meetings. Tears, laughter, and applause,
marked the rapid course of her words,
her orator, magnetism, and stage prcs
Liice holding her hearts.
March to Sleetlns; I'lncrs.
Mutt of those present at the meetings
!iad assembled at Fourteenth Street and
Jew York avenue, and marched to the
meeting places, preceded- by a squad of
mounted police and a section of the
Marine Band. The speakers and others
on the program divided their time be
tween the three places of meeting
Selections by the Marine Band and the
singing of hymns opened the meetings
Miss Anna A. Gordon, national vice
President of the organization, who was to
have presided at the meeting in First
-Congregational Church, informed the au
dience that fhe would be needed no the
Columbia Theater, and presented Mrs
Frarces P. Parks, national corresponding
Becretarj who officiated
Miss Gladvs D. Emig, of this clt. re
cited at both meetings the Prohibition
.Proclamation," written two vears ago
bv Mrs- Lillian M X Met ens, when
Maine voted to uphold its "dry" law.
Representative Hobson's resolution intro
duced in the House last summer, provid
ing for a constitutional amendment mak
ing prohibition nation-wide, was read by
L btanton Henri at both meeting.
Mrs. Armor chose for the subject of
her forceful remarks "Nation-Wide Pro
hibition in 1K0, and Why " She said that
while God alwavs had been opposed to the
liquor traffic. It was not until late years
that the church had united against it
Ibshm a Chnllenge.
Mrs. Armor declares that common sense
-was opposed (o continuation of the. traffic
in alcohol, and she openly challenged
any one in the cltj, particular a repre
sentative of the liquor interests, to meet
her in open debate any time this week,
and she would prove that what she said
was true in theory and fact.
"The liquor people hae only three ar
guments," Mrs. Armor declared "They
twist them around, and advance varia
tions of them, but they have only three,
and they are pitiably weak. They say
-that the liquor traffic pajs It pas no
one but those engaged in selling it. '
Mrs Armor sa.d another argument ad
vanced bv the intere-ts is that "prohibi
tion doesn't prohibit "
"If that is so why do they spend mil
lions of dollars fighting prohibition? It
seems slllv. '
The onlv other argument they have.
Mrs Armor went on. is the "Dersonal
rights" argument, the declaration that a '
man has a right to drink if he wants to
Uo It
"He hasn t " she declared. "Has
man a right to kill himself If there Is
a man here with some deadly poison in
his pocket and he tries to take it, he
ran be arrested for breaking the law
He hasn't the right to poison himself,
and people are beginning to realize that
liquor Is a poison."
Support of Mr. Hobson's resolution for
prohibition was accorded a unanimous
standing vote, on the motion of Mrs.
1 lorence Richards, president of the Ohio
organization.

"GOD ASKS TOO MUCH"
CALLED POOR EXCUSE
Rer. Dr. C. Everest Granger Deli?en
the Last in His Series
of Sermons.
The last in a series of sermons on "Pop
ular Excuses' was delivered last night
by Rv. Dr C Everest Granger, pastor of
Gunton-Temple Memorial Presbyterian
Church, Fourteenth and It streets north
west The sermon was entitled. "The
Shulamite s Complaint God Asks Too
Much " Kev Dr. Granger said. In part:
"This excuse may ccme from one who
is at ease in the world. We hear much
of those who are 'at ease In Zion,' that
is in the ihurch and sad it is there are
man of them. There are many who are
at ease in the world Thev are satisfied
how they are and what they are and
where they are
"This excuse mi) come from one who
sees difficulties in the way of duty which
now exist or who greatly exaggerates
those difficulties which do exist So many
consider and magnify the difficulties and
dangers of the religious life and forget
the distress, difficulties and dangers of
the Irreligious life.
"But the excuse comes more frequently
from the selfish than the silly; more
often from the tired than the timid.
There is a popular idea that God, re
ligion and the church are too exacting.
that too much time and attention are de
manded, that too many sacrifices are re
quired, that too much in the way ol
pleasure, ambition, and even money,
must be given up 'God asks too much '
Man) men are not willing to make
sacrifices.
"Well, we will not deny it. we must
not den) it God does make demands.
He uemands repentance, faith, profes
sion, and devotion Hi demands the
surrender of some pleasures, -ome ambi
tions, some time, strength brains,
mone) But how little does he demand
compared with what He gives' No sac
rifice has ever been made for God but
what has been infinitely more than com

RAILROAD INTERESTS
Charges Conspiracy to Force Oowa
Values and Price of
Labor.
A widespread conspiracy on the part
of the "money -trust" and the "railroad
trust" to force down the value of rail
roads and the price of labor was charged
by Gen. Jacob S Coxey. of Ohio, one
time leader of ' Coxeys army," in a
speech last night In Pythian Temple.
It was the contention of Gen. Coxer
that the general public has been made
"sheep" for the shears of the interests
through unjustified Inflation of railroad
stocks, which now are being depreciated
in value In order that they may be bought
back by the financiers at greatly reduced
figures.
He said that one of the aims of the in
terests has been to force Congress to give
them a currency bill to their liking,
which the caucus of the Democratic
party has ngreed to do."
The price of labor and of railroad equip
ment has been forced down by the ln
terest"", according to Gen. Coxey, by cut
ting down their orders for equipment
thus compelling the manufacturers to run
smaller forces and to accept lower prices
for their products.

TOPRESENJPLAY
Say Mrs. Hemmick's Drama
Would Inflame Patriotic
American Audiences.
HANDLING IS VIVID
Clarence W. Ds Knight Co-Anthor.
"Power" Deal with the Reyo-
'Intion in Panama.
Author of a drama of ueh virility
that Its production, it is said, might
Inflame the patriotio American audience
such 1 the latest role essayed by a
Washington society leader, Mrs. Chris
tian Dominique Hemmick.
Tower" is the title of the play that
New York theatrical men declare Is of
such a character that they would not
dare arouse a gathering; ot patriotic
Americans by presenting- It.
"It is timely, exceedingly interesting
and vividly handled." say the pro
ducers who have refused the play, "but
It would grip and sway the feelings of
an audience to such a point that it
might be unprofitable, at least to the
producers."
Whether this means mat Mrs. Hem
mick's "Power" It Is not Mrs. Hem
mick's entirely, for Clarence Woods
De Knight a young man who has
spent much of his time In recent years
about the Capitol, is (he co-author-
would cause an assemblage of Ameri
cans to throw chairs or ruin the scen
ery or theater is not explained.
ln Written for Amateurs,
This Is the first time Mrs. Hemmick
has essayed to write a play for pro
fessional production, although on num
erous previous occasions she has writ
ten playlets, skits, and musical com
edies for the amateur stage, the pro
ceeds from their presentation going
for the most part toward the mainte
nance of Neighborhood House.
"Power" deals with the Panama revo
lution, the acquirement of the canal strip
by the United States, and the activities
of politicians and financiers leading
thereto. One act of the play Is laid In
the marble room of the Capitol, while
the Senate Is voting In the historical
contest of Panama versus Nicaragua.
A survey of the lines shows that the
co-authors have followed Intimately cer
tain spt.ee hes made in the House at the
time of the Panama agitation by Repre
sentative Henry T Rainey. of Illinois, as
well a some vivid editorials in certain
New York newspapers on the same
them. Throughout the text are repeat
ed veiled references to the late President
McKlnle) and Col. Roosevelt, while the
Senator Howard of the play cleverly
conceals the personality of the late Mar
cus A. Hanna. Senator from Ohio
The financier in the play. Bertrand,
assuredly Is none other than tne well
known financier, William Nelson Crom
well.
Have Vard Plain English.
The writers have not been sparing In
their terms when a pick ax seemed to
them a rick ax and a spado a spade.
The writing can be taken as nothing
but a definite determination lor serious
work by both authors. Mrs. Hemmick
and Mr. De Knight arc collaborating on
a second work.- which tentatively has
been christened "Passion," and deals
with much the samo subject-matter as Is
handled in "Damaged Ooods.
