[Copyright, 1900, by C. B. Lewis.]
My Dear Fellow Citizens?It is my
custom before proceeding to the busi
ness of the evening to take up a collec
tion among the audience for the benefit
pf some charity. On this occasion the
subject is the individual -who stands
before you. I have managed to get
along for the Inst three days on 97
cents, but I can go no further. While
there Is no doubt that I am worthy of
all you can do for me, yet no one need
feci under obligations to give. I will
now pass around the hat. and as I
move among you I am glad to observe
that the audience assembled here to
night is one of the most cultivated I
have seen for months. 1 will not be
base enough to think that free admis
sion had nnything to do with It You
came to hear one of the great ques
tions of the day discussed by one of
the great Orators of the century, and
had the price of tickets been 10 cents
each I believe that one and all would
have cheerfully coughed up. I do not
use that expression In a slang sense,
but as a Latin phrase. I find that the
collection amounts to 70 cents, and.
thanking you from the bottom of my
heart and trusting that you may go
out of here better men and women, I
will now begin:
My friends. I have in my pocket the
figures showing just how many distil
leries and breweries there are In the
United States and Just how much whis
ky and beer are made every 24 hours
CnnlSTOPHKB.
during the year. But why give them?
Why tell you that 1,000.000 of our pop
ulation go to bed drunk every night In
the year and that the money spent for
drink every day would provide all the
widows with sealskin sacks and Trench
heeled shoos? We nil know those
things. Let us begin with Christopher
Columbus, who had rather more to do
with America than any man who has
come after him. I give you his picture
on the canvas. You look puzzled and
surprised. You can't make it out. You
behold Christopher lying drunk on the
highway, with a jug on one side and a
hog on the other. It Is a fanciful pic
ture. I want you to look at it closely
and keep It in your minds, and every
day for years to come I want you to
ask yourself what would have happen
ed If Columbus had been that sort of
man. When Ferdinand and Isabella had
fitted him out for his voyage, suppose
be had gone and got a three days' Jag
on and bad rolled around In the mud
and had had three or four scraps with
other old bums. Can you for nn instant
believe that he would have been left In
command of the expedition or that this
country would have been discovered
for the next DO years? But there was
no boozing. Ue may have taken a
farewell drink of root beer or leinou
nde, as was eminently proper, but It
ended right there, and he became world
famous ns a result. A whole hem
isphere and millions of people owe him
a debt of gratitude and will remember
his name forever because of his ab
stinence. The lesson taught by the pic
ture is plain to all. Get drunk, and you
will be sent to the island for 30 days;
remain sober. &ud you will become fa
mous.
My friends, let me give you the pic
ture of George Washington as lie was
about to cross the Delaware nnd gain a
ereat victory over the British. You
observe tliat George Is lying drank
with his feet on a chair while the pa
triot army waits for him to take the
lead. You murmur and are aghast,
j You never heard that the Father of
Ilis Country got a jng on. No more
did he. 1 Rive you this picture as
an object lesson, and 1 ask you where
this country would have been today
had George gone off on a hoopla at a
critical moment? In those old colonial
