"DAVID AND GO LIATH" BY SUNDAY WELL KNOWN EVANGELIST GIVES HIS VERSION OF THE FAMOUS CONFLICT — SAYS DAVE SOAKED GOLIATH ON THE COCO BETWEEN THE LAMPS. Billy Sunday, the old National Leaguer who has made quite a repu tation for himself as an evangelist, has stirred Spokane, and the daily accounts of his services are read here with a great deal of interest. It is safe to say that no portion of the Spokane papers are of as much gen eral interest here as that containing the Sunday sermons. At Spokane, Sunday told the story of David and Goliath according to his own ideas, and it made a big hit. Here is the story in Sunday's own words: "And so David's pa came up to him where he was working in the field and says: 'Dave, better go up to the house, your ma's anxious about the other boys fighting in the army, hasn't heard from them by phone or anything, and she'd like you should go look them up.' So Dave hops on a trolley and hikes to the front and stays there with his brothers over night. "In the morning old Goliath comes out in front of the Philistines and dares the Israelites to fight him. 'Who's that big stiff making all the big talk out there?' asks Dave. " 'Why, that's the big cheese, the big noise.' says his brothers. " 'Why don't some one soak him one?' asks Dave. " 'We've all got cold feet,' says the Israelites. " 'You fellows make me tired,' says Dave, and he pikes out to the brook, gets four pebbles in his shep herd's sack, slams one at Goliath and soaks him in the coco between the lamps. Goliath goes to the mat, takes the count, and Dave pokes him in the slats, chops off his block and the whole Philistine gang skidooed." CITY NEWS B. H.

Special to the World. NASHVILLE, Term., Jan. B.—The Tennessee legislature meets this year with every indication that the fight for statewide prohibition will be the chief issue of the session. Both sides have lined up for the fray and the struggle undoubtedly will be a bitter one. Though large sections of the state are now "dry" the prohibition ele ment declares that it will not rest until Tennessee has joined the ranks of Georgia, Mississippi, North Caro lina and other states in prohibiting the liquor traffic entirely.

The democratic party platform pledges the party to "take no back ward steps" in liquor organization, but to extend and apply those laws to all portions of the state not now embraced in their operation when ever the people of the communities to be affected thereby give their con sent.
