K3R. ROSE'S PLAN
TO GLOSESALUON Newark Clergyman Thinks the Neighborhood Houses Would Prove Attractive Substitutes PROVIDE SUNDAY DIVERSION THEN, SAYS THIS UNI VERBALIST, YOU WILL KEEP SOME OF THE MEN AND WOMEN IN THE STRAIGHT AND NARROW PATH Speaking in the Church of the Re deemer, Newark, on the topic, "One Way to Close the Saloons,” the pastor, the Rev. Henry R. Rose, suggested, as that way, competition, which would1 act as counter attractions to the saioons and draw away their patronage. The idea was to provide places where the good fellowship sought in saioons might be obtained without their environment and temptation. Neighborhood houses, boys’ clubs, Sunday evening lectures and con certs, Mr. Rose believed, are already, in a measure, supplying the need; they sim ply should be increased in number to be come effective factors in contending against the saloons. He said in part:— “The saloon is only a symptom. It is an expression of a deep problem. And the problem is this: How to provide for the people places to go to in a big city where they can have fellowship. The saioons are patronized because young men and older men desire a social hour or two after a Bard, day’s work. The desire for' drink is not the first thing that calls them there, but the desire for comradeship. Then they form the drink habit and the saloon has them. “We are opposed1 to the saloon because in the first place it makes drunkards. I see that our brewers have become hu morists. They tell us that beer is a tem perance drink and1 that beer saloons are temperance resorts. What a huge joke if it were not so sad! By the same rea soning gambling resorts are Bureaus of Associated Charities! They make it easy for men to part with their money. IS'o, the saloons make drunkards. See them reeling through the streets of our city every day of the week; wretched fellows; God-made and all for that. “But worse than this the saloons make rowdies and blackguards, fallen men and fallen women. Think of the conversation indulged in, the oaths, the lewd talk. What is there ennobling about the talks even a passerby hears at the bar or at the table where a game of cards or dice is in operation? In Europe the cafes are places where young men gather to discuss philosophy, art, music, poetry, science,, politics; yes. religion. The re sult is good!. But our saloons encourage no such interchange of views. They are on a commercial basis; their side doors are invitations to vice; their dance halls are the feeders oflthe brothel. “And yet the saloons furnish the peo ple of a great city tike this with a place to get light, warmth and' fellowship. If we got rid of them without substituting Something better wa should in all prob aility, find ourselves out of the frying pan into the fire. People must have fel lowship; they must haveia change. “The one way to beat the saloon is by competition. Let us give the people something even more attractive and in every way better. Let us,overcome evil with good. The best thing) I know of is a neighborhood! house—a y place with many rooms where the boys and men may come and have not onlyia good time, but also by degrees become'interested in things that make for education, refine ment and manhood. We have a neigh borhood house down on Market street I went into it the other night and there were two rooms filled with young men playing cards and shuffl'eboayd and' other games. They were hawing a happy time and were using good language. No bet ting. no rowdyism. I was there another night and lectured to a company of one hundred or more who had1 come in from their neighboring homes. “They were poor and' their,*faces show ed signs of hard work, but they listened with eagerness, and I felt- that they were honestly intent on learning some thing. Neighborhood houses, in Newark are in their infancy, but if fwe were to place one in every congestedf>district and* equip it as it might be equipped the sa loons of its neighborhood' would have to go out of business. The Newark Bovs' Club is another rf. al of the eatloon. Sun day afternoon lectures are also compet ing with It. Our Sunday eventing illus trated! lecture and musical services. lik| the one to-night, drawing hither' as they do thousands of men and women' from Children Teething. Mrs. Winslow’s Soothing Syrup should always be used for children teething. It soothes the child, softens the gums, al lays all pain; cures wind colic, and is the1 best remedy for diarrhoe. Ihreutv-five cents a bottle. t * month to month, are keeping the tone of the city's life high and thus making against the saloon. If more churches would break through ancient prejudice and use Sunday evenings in the sapae way it would1 be harder, much harder, for the saloon in their neighborhoods to do business.” m v BOARD OF EDUCUATION.
