IN HOT DEBATE
(Continued From First Page)
lignai for cheering. A few minutes later
Mr. Muclcan announced that the debaters
would speak thirty minutes and twenty
minute« each, with ten minutes for cloe
ing argument by the affirmative. He pre
sented Mr. Everhart as the first speaker.
Mr. Everhart's Opening.
Mr. Everhart was greeted with great
Applause.Ther»' was » little hiesing. "Here
I am and I am sober." he said. "When I
left Portland. Maine, my wife was a re
spectable woman. You may think there
arc no sober men or respectable women
in Maine, yet ^ hope to demonstrate that
there are a few before I am over."
At the outset he declared that the pur
pose for the enactment of the prohibitory
low was to withdraw legal sanction from
the man selling intoxicating liquors to
his fellow men. and thus lessen drunken
ness and prevent attending crime, pauper
ism and insanity. To show the effective
ness of the prohibitory law in Maine, he
declared that whst liquor did roms there
from outside states, Ho asserted
came Hi
that the prohibitory law In Main» did nut
prevent the brewing of two per cent. beer.

easles that continued to evUt alone* de
of them. "In the whole »late of Maine."
he commented, "There ere half as many
speakeasies as in Pittsburg alone.'' Tak
ing up death from alec holism, ha da
elared that Maine was tho lowest of any
other Hlele In the Union, with the ex
ception of one. New Hampshire, which
he seid, at the time the census was taken
was a prohibition slate. There was no
state In the Union, he said, further, that
showed a greater success In the process
of sllmlnstlng the liquor trsffic and oust
ing drunkenness than Maine according to
statistics of Hie stale author ties, which
allowed that In PSW there had bien 3,HOD

He then alluded to the high output of
celebrities In Moine and Ms educational
advantages. Ho declared that Mulne arnt

lb. country. "I bud lived 13 years under
license before coming to Maine." he con
cluded. "and when 1 went to live there it

During the Inil 3« days. I only »«w three
drunken men i n the streets of Portland.
Men go 16 Maine looking for certain
thing* which me really not founded cn

At the close of his argument Mr. Ever

speaker cloaeiy to hia «object and would
accordingly "g've Hi« next ,-pe. ker some

the audience would lie referred to the
chair. Mr. Thomson was then lulroductd
amid loud cheers.
Mr. Thomson Begine.
Mr, Thomaon remarked that he wan
ceedlngly glade to have mot a gentleman
from Mane, but expressed the wish that
he had ''kept io hia text." *T am not go
ing to talk about pro-per ty, or divorce or
hank deposits or wandor hare and there,
hut I am going to stick to tact* ami speak
to you as ladles and gentlemen of the
Jury," he said. Entering then upon hlx
duty of trying to prove that prohlh t on In
Maine does not prohibit he declared
lh» authority of the chief of police of
Portland that during the last four
c X
years
there had been 8.619 esses ot drunkenness,
"My respected opponent said," he Inter
polated. "that he hsd seen but three

Wide Latitude
ncpfi'P
"In aunt hr'
la cotUng upon Mr. Everhart again
Chnlrnian Maclean repeated that he
would not confine the speaker closely
to the text, for he believed that the
audience was willing to get all general
Information that it could. Mr. Ever
hart wai again enthusiastically cheer
ed. but as he began to speak there
ware sarcastic remarks from the bal
cony.
Mr. Everhart deprecated a too floue
attention to statistics. Morals and the
nature of crimes must be dealt with, he
said. If the problem was to be dealt
with at all. He declared that the Com
mon Council petition at Blddeford
sprang from the fact that the Council
was Democratic and the nherlff, the
police commissioner and the governor
Republican.
As to Bangor, the speaker asserted
that because of its situation on tho
edge of the great lumber territory of
lawlessness and
the Northeast, Its
number of arrests In excess of those
here were due to the hundreds of lum
bermen who came from the forests in
the spring.
He also attributed the larger number
of arrests for drunkenness in Maine
to the vigilance of tho police, who
gathered In the drunks as fast as they
were put out of tho speakeasies.
Drunks who in Wilmington, he said,
would he unmolested by the police,
were arrested In Maine, He quoted
figures showing that acts of violence
were more numerous in Wilmington
than In Bangor and other cities In
Maine. In Bangor, he said, there hsd
been 1 arrest for murder as against 30
In Wilmington, while there had been
seven times as many assaults here.
Mr. Thomson's Reply
Mr. Thotpson then began his twenty
minutes' argument by declaring that
he had never listened to such a com
plete failure of prohibition as that put
up by his opponent. In 1906, he said,
there were 138 divorces In Maine, and
In Delaware 52. He declared that his
opponent's argument of lumbermen In
Bangor was Just as applicable to Wil
mington. which, he declared, had a
tioallng population of 20,000.
"When the gentleman comes here
and says you have so much drunken
ness. he libels the people of Wilming
ton. 1 haven't seen It. and 1 have been
over all the streets of Wilmington.''
This assertion was hooted roundly by
Ihe "drys." He denied that Hie sheriff
of Cumberland county was Influenced
by politics. He asked the opinion of
Frank Smith, city auditor of Blddeford,
who was on the stage.
"Finest man In Maine," said Mr.
Bmlth. sincerely.
Mr Thomson demanded to know why
tho prohibitionists did not vote for re
submission. Ho proclaimed the StntV
gls law of Maine a dl efface to De
mocracÿ.
"jf prohibition would advance the
cause of temperance t would go over."
declared Mr. Thomson, fervently, while
cries of "come over" eftme from the
balcony "Hut." he continued, "I have
found that Maine ha* more drunken
ness than any other State except pos
sibly Kansas, and I am not eure about
Kansas."
Homebody at this, »tage yelled; "He
was born in Philadelphia." and Mr.
Thomson went into an explanation as
to his birth and hi» being sent from
New Zealad to investigate prohibition
here.
Mr. Bverhart then began hia ten
minutes by flashing the dollar bill to
the "drunk" In the audience. The man
started forward but was held hack.
There was hissing, but a husky ad
mirer yelled; "Hit him again."
Mr. Maclean declared that Judgment
upon the debate would be given No
vember 5. All snug "My Country, 'Tls
ot Thee." standing, and then fnP the
next half hour three thouiand "wets"

A Riddle.
I have a bead, a litt!« head
That you could scarcely see,
But I have a mouth much bigger
Than my head could ever be.
That seems Impossible, you say.
Tnu think 'twould be a bother?
Why, no! My head Is at one end;
My mouth's way at the other.
1 have no feet, yet I can run.
And pretty fsat. 'tls said.
The funny tiling about mo is
1 run when in my bed.
1'vo not a cent in ail the world. '
I seek tint fortune's ranks.
And yet it's true that, though so poor,
I own two splendid banks.
I've lots of "sand." yet run away;
I'm weak, yet "furnish power;"
No hands or arms, yet my embrace
Would kill in half an hour.
f
You think I am some fearful thing.
Ah. you begin to shiver!
Pray, don't, for after ail. you know,
I'm only Just a Hver.
