Chas. R. Drum Says "I Don't
Think Much of Fairmont.
Mai <es Stirring Speech to a
Big Mass Meeting at
M. P. Temple.
A spirited, sincere, energetic attack
on local i onriirions rospectinc the pro
tected lii|iior traffic here; an earnest
and inspiring appeal to the men and
young men mr cleaner lives morally,
and a thrilling call to local people to
correct these evils and attain a higher
degree of morality; characterized the
tour addresses made in the city yesterday
by Charles It. Drum, national
V. M. c A. worker, which completed y
| series of fifteen addresses made by
iiim in tlie schools, theatres and
churches of the city in the past two
Yesterday afternoon to an audience
of men which packed the lower floor
I of the Grand theatre he talked on "The
Otln r Fellow's Sister.'*
'"The most wonderful address of
the kind 1 ever heard, and one so far
superior to the usual talk that is made
011 such a topic that there is no comparison."
said a gentleman last evening
whose appreciation was sincere
and based on intelligence.
Since social evils was his subject,
he naturally made reference to local
conditions respecting the liquor traffic.
"Has this town the courage to rise
up and crush the demon that still lurks
In your streets and hyways," he cried
"No," several persons shouted.
"Then I don't think as much of you
as I did," he said.
Before leaving town last night he
outlined to a West Virginian reporter
his idea of how the city should go
nhoul fighting the traffic.
"Organize real live committees." he
said, "who shall employ the services
of an honest detective who will collect
evidence. Then with incontrovertuble
evidence let the matter be placed
in the hands of the proper officials and
prosecution started."
Asked what action might he taken
in the event the proper officials refused
to take action, or so conducted
the cases as to make a farce of the
uiriK over iu years old to worn
in Stogie Kaotory. Steady work,
pood wages. Also pood strippers
wanted. Apply

prosecution, ne sain:
"In that ease it is the duty or every
christian, God rearing, decency loving
American, to change officers. And let
it be done without regard for party ties
or affiliations. Such n condition would
be intolerable to humanity and justice."
His final address in the city was to
an audience which last night puckcd
the M. I*. Temple to the doors. A
great mass meeting of all the churches
was held ill the Temple to hear Mr.
Drum speak on "An Honest Man." This
Inst was more of an evangelical sermon
than any of the others preached
by hint in Fairmont, but for fifty-five
minutes lie held his hearers spellbound.
At the conclusion of the servifii

promised to have a talk with their pas-j
After the service last night, it was'
announced privately that Mr. Drum
would be brought back to I'airmont before
the winter is over for a four!
weeks' evangelical slay and that possibly
a tabernacle would be built for
him then.
