Representative Fuller of dontgomery moved that the house ad ourn until 3 o’clock this afternoon. I'he motion was voted down. Argument on the passage of the bill vas begun by Representation John iton of Madison, local option leader. "Not a majority of you was sent here vlth Ihc express'd desire that you ihould pass this law." said Mr. lohn iton. "If you wished to be loyal to he people of Alabama and true to the ledges of the party platform, why did ou not make provision for taking •are of the deficit in the treasury Mused by the lopping off of revenue or liquor bfore attempting to force :hls bill?. "The violation of a moral ooliga ion never settled an issue of this im portance. I tell you, you have not the uoral right tp pass this bill and while f do not wish to charge i^ you are not rue to the party pledges by uttsmpt ng otapss this state-wide bill.” Fuller Speaks Representative Fuller of Montgom ery followed Representative Johnston tnd spoke briefly in opposition to the bill. He declared that the prohibi tion issue was made in only a few counties of the state in the primary elections and that since the people of the state had on several occasions voted Sown state-wide prohibition it was Evident that it was not wanted by them. Steam Roller Representative Chamberlain of Mo bile declared that he knew it was use less to oppose the bill, since the mem bers had made up their minds, but that he wanted to go on record as protesting against the measure. “This question was voted on four nonths ago,” he said, amid laughter. ‘I know It is useless to talk for your nlnds are already made up.

Opposition Talks Representative Davis of Walker was the first to speak in favor of the bill. ”1 cannot allow some of the things that have been said here to go unchal lenged,” he Baid. Calling Representative John of Dallas to the chair, Speaker Carmichael took the floor. "The only argument used against the bill by the opposition is that the sov ereign people of Alabama cannot con trol this measure and that, therefore the people must tolerate this evil. I deny that the people of this great state cannot control this evil. “I am reminded of the spies who were sent into the promised land, who reported upon returning that It was a country of giants. "The question of submitting this bill to the people first appealed to me, for I favor allowing the people to vots on questions. "And If we could get an honest elec tion I would say refer it to the people. But we cannot get an honest election, for we haven’t the money. "I tell you, my friends, that the great ?st evil In Alabama today Is that we oannot get an honest election. "They say the question lias been voted Jown four times. I read in a book when I was a schoolboy that if at first 1'ou don’t succeed, try, try again." He concluded amid great applause. Representative Merritt then intro luced a resolution that the house re main in session until the bill is disposed if. Rules were suspended and the reso ution was adopted.

He declared hat in his campaign he made prohibit ion an issue in every speech he made. He read figures from the attorney " 1 WHY NOT READ A “YEAR BOOK” NOW AND THEN? ■r bout auanpu ii i were president oi a womans club,” observed a clever feminist a few days ago, “I would have the members to subscribe to a 'Year Book' and at each meeting have a few selected pages read in relation to the programme for the day.” “These arc blue books and social regis ters at all the clubs for men or women,” , protested a good listener, but the iirst speaker laughed and explained that she had no reference whatever to the indis pensable books that enable forgetful peo ple to follow' the migrations of their fashionable friends from one neighbor hood to another.

They want to know equally with men what big things are going on at home and abroad, but they do not appreciate as men do real sources of information. They do not know that a year book must cover every thing of Interest from the maneuvers of warships to the present conditions in Mexico, and the progress of the suffrage cause, as well as everything political." "Take the matter of the drama," she continued. "A year book for 19H will show that while there have been no re markabls changes in the theatrical situa tion within the past year, the ‘movies’ have gained tremendous ground and are almost monopolizing the Intellect of the public and the largest theatrical pro ducers are more affiliated with ’moving pictures.' either intimately or remotely; that such men as the Frohmans are Inter ested In the film drama; also Mr. Belas so, and the rest; that science has recorded the undying story of Captain Scott, and animal life In the Antarctic in 'moving pictures,' and ‘The Prisoners of Zenda’ thrills the romantic heart through the same medium. Through a 'year book the reader may learn that because of the moving picture fad, perhaps, or perad veuture because of the high cost of liv ing, or the diffuseness of theatrical ac tivities, some of the best plays recently sent upon the road have come to an un timely end. Also that police interference has distinguished the last year In the matter of the censorship of plays, a judge and jury having been called in on some occasions to pass judgment upon some plays offered, while violations of the law in giving Sunday night peflormancea has been called to accounting. They would also know that a medal has ra cently been bestowed upon Mr. Augustus Thomas for distinguished life service in the drama, and that Mr. William Winter, the venerable theatrical critic, has made, a 'contribution to literary circles in his The Wallet of Time,' comprising per sonal reminiscences and intimate criti cism of the stage for over a half cen tury." "A year book may contain delightful summaries." the speaker informed, “of the distinctive plays of a year, studies of types, revivals of old favorites, successes, failures, after the reading of which club women would feel a greater interest in the fact that Mr. Wlnthrop Ames of fered a prise of *10,000 for an American play and that the Princess theatre has offered prises to undergraduates of col leges for one-act dramas, thus stimulat ing the talent and ambition throughout the country. They would hearken to the rumors concerning a French theatre, a woman’s theatre’—whatever that may be, and of the Idea fostered by Mr. Ben Greet of a traveling theatre to go from school to school, for the presenttaion of the classic drama. They would learn many details of modern warfare, of social conditions, of slum work, and many other activities of the past year, which only ag ip-to-the-mlnute year bools' could fiossi* t>ly give.” ■■•MMMMHmMHHIMmHIHHBHHIaMIMHa general's report showing the number of convictions for liquor violations In Montgomery and Mobile in Comer's time.
