The union meeting held at the Bap tist church Sunday evening under the auspices of the W. C. T. U., was a splendid meeting in every particular. The house was crowded to its fullest capacity. Reverepds Carrutb, Brown and McKaig were on the rostrum and helped in the meeting. The address of the evening was delivered by Rev. McKaig, who made a strong and elo quent plea for the protection of Young AmIn:ica. Mr. McKaig spoke, as he expressed it, from "inside informa tion" relative to the work of the sa loon in the large cities, as he had spent nearly two years in slum work in New York City, and is acquainted with the various phases of the saloon question in a manner that one with. out his experience could not be. Referring to conditions in territory that has voted the saloon out, the speaker made an earnest appeal for the substitution of some other place of amusement to take its place. He said that the removal of a saloon from a town or city was nor enough, that something must be substituted in its place In discussing the various means employed by the saloons to draw and hold patronage, he laid special stress upon the social side of the question. He said, in substance, the saloon is the poor man's club. It is there he meets his friends and associates, to talk over their plans, to crack their jokes and to enjoy each others com comradeship' That it is the poor man's place of amusement; that there he is furnished, free of cost, music, cheap theatrical and other forms of amusement. It is there, if he is. hun gry, he gets his free lunch with a nickel's worth of beer. These and other similar methods are employed by the saloon interests to hold its vast army in line and keep them ever ready to obey their master's nod. At the close of the meeting a good collection was taken up, which was given to e . C' T. IT.
