I have never heard any argument on the other side that I thought could be sus- ! tained. The liquor business is an evil, according to every state court, every state legislature, the Supreme Court of the land, States under what is known as the police power of the state pass laws regulating the liquor traffic. The (Continued from Page 1) is squal; the millionaire's vote counts the same as the poorest working man's, vote wrong, not from any lack of desire to do right, but from a lack of knowledge of the facts. I have come tonight to tell you some facts. police power of the state is that power that lies in the laws of self defense of the state. We can all resort to self defense if threaten ed. Upon the same principle states may defend themselves from that thing which menaces them in .the form of the liquor traffic. "One of the great arguments against dry laws is that they en croach upon man's liberty. Is there a single law upon the statute books of Delaware that does not en croach upon mian's liberty? All; law means that man shall live for the good of the many—to prevent ! anyone from going out and doing, just as he pleases to the harm of his neighbor. We are all familiar with the man who tells that in his father's boyhood the decanter was on every sideboard; that even the minister was treated to a glass of yvine unon his visit to the home. ,My friends, it is the commercial izing of the business that has put the great harm into it. The man who can afford to waste his money on this stuff has it in his home;; the poor man goes to the public house to get it, and it is the bus iness of the saloon keeper to sell all he can and make the better liv ing. Decide whether or not you ,will vote to give some man the privilege of making money in this way, or to protect the American home. It is useless to tell an in telligent audience that 75 percent of our crime, 75 percent of our insanity are directly traceable to this cause. "In Sussex county before 'dry' "In Sussex county before 'dry' laws were'in effect, the Grand Jury was seldom in session less than a week, sometimes longer. Now it is unusual for it to be in session two days. It's up to you, men. You have the responsibility; you are your brother's keeper. You must see that the temptation is removed from every man. What is the use in Sussex having voted to remove this thing from the county, and then sending her boys to a college town, where in the very beginning of his manhood he is thrown open to things of this kind? What is the reason that state after state has gone dry? Why have so many southern states gone dry? We all know it. The people in the south know, that their large colored pop ulation, when full of whiskey be come beasts, and dangerous. Sometime ago after an investiga tion, the Baltimore and Ohio Com pany went before the Legislature asking to have laws put upon the statute books of Maryland, forbid ding the selling of booze to a man wearing their uniform. "I appealed, sometime qgo, to the head of a certain department in behalf of a young man who was reported to me as a very worthy one. He told me, 'Mr. Houghton, we want good men; we are going to keep good men when we find them. This man is discharged because he was under the influence of alcohol when on duty. We have too many lives entrusted to us to risk the mistake of a drunken man.' Al cohol affects a man's efficiency at least 40 percent. That's why so many states are voting dry. In Sussex there were some peo ple who honestly believed they NEWARK'S LEADING Meat Market CHARLES P. STEEL DEALER IN Fresh and Salt Meats i Home Dressed Meats a Specialty Main Street Opposite College Call or Phone Order D. & A. 44 a would ha^e to move out if the county went dry. 'What are we go ing to do for revenue?' they said. You may not realize it, my friends, but in Georgetown at least $20, 000 passed over the saloon coun ters. Close the saloons and it means $20,000 more over the coun ters of merchants for the food and clothing of that man's family. The amount of a merchant's license is regulated by his purchases. Upon investigation I have found that those merchants who sell to the class of men who visited the saloons, doubled their business the first year under prohibition laws, ! That meant an increased license in the state, and in three years time the increased revenue from the merchants has amounted to more than all the revenue from the licensed saloons, "In far off Russia, which we are .. .■■ ....
