STORE. m m m m 9. m m I m m m m m s m m m s DOUTNEY'S TEMPERANCE TALK. Lecturer Holds Advanced Vievvs on Proper Methods of Combatting the Liquor Evils. \ . •• * The threatening thunder kept many away and the quickly following rain drove others away who desired to hear the lecture of Mr. Thos. N. Doutney, .advertised to be given in the park last night A fair sized audience did gather and he was able to talk for about half an hour before the storm, ended the meeting. Mr. Doutney in his younger days in vestigated the liquor traffic as a liquor seller and later as an ardent co^n- sumer. For twenty-five years ho has since been erfgaged in fighting this curse and his views will be surprising to many and interesting to all. He explained In his own way the "utter failure of prohibition In Maine, Vermont and New Hampshire, 'the two latter states having gone back ,to license system after fifty years' sail experience with prohibition." Ho also spoke of Iowa's experiment and predicted that Kansas and other prohibition states will do likewise later. The speaker held that an honest, fair license system is preferable to un- inforced prohibition, as the latter means hypocrisy. "It has proven itself to be an avenue for bribery, per Jury and corruption." He said that do so one should of two evils, (liscountenanoed the abuse of hotel and saloon men. He says i that minlsti irs, with all due respect, do not as a class know any- thinig about the traffic, little about Its victims and fail lo understand human nature aright. Hence they often fail of genuine sutxsess In tomperancc work. •:Man drinks liquor,", said he, "not because he Is mean but because he is a social being. God made him' so. Man cannot pe coerced .Into religion, morality or 'temperance. -Tlie saloon is the poor man's club, as Bishop Potter of New Torjc put It. All religious and moral reform Is a work of education—not coercion. "When we take —ndt send but take—the gospel of Christ, Bide by side with- charity, works of comfort anrl kind deeds Jto the unfortunates than we are;doing practical and applied temperance wopk.! Preaching fn^m one place to unfortunates in anotlier section don't whefl forced to choose the lesser Mr. Doutney reach them.. We laust go to them. The liquor traffic eidst^ like all other linesiot^miniercc^ under the law cH supply and demand. Men In the business sell because of the constant demand. Let usiface all evil with facts Just as they exi^t and adopt sensible methods to better the condition. A crank in anything never accomplishes any good, especially a religious or temperance crank. My efforts are not to enodrse drunkenness, but my entire heart sjrmpathy is with the drunkard of either sex, nor are they to extend the liquor traffis. Instead It is to advance real temperance by reason and good judgment. My experience as hotel and saloon man and as a former victim of the drink habit, and over twenty-five years as a worker in the temperance field, has proven to me that I am working on the proper lines.'' Horse-Whipped for .Meanness. A tale of sensational character comes via a roundabout, route to this office. It is to the effect that a man of that place was horsewhipped most thoroughly yesterday for mistreatment of his family. Another woman was passing thq home when she saw husband and wife arguing about the man's purpose to take the horse and buggy to town. .-He wanted to .sell it, as he had sold most all of''their other property, for drink. The w;ife objected. The man grew abusive and the qaarrei came almost to blows, when the passing woman broke In. She in tuha w^ abused, but slie replied with her buggy whip. A crowd gathered and when they learned the facts the man was taken in hand and given a most thorough whipping. All of which was most Just if the facts are as reported, and all of which was a rare tale If the report is true. Confirmation or denial were both inaccessible. Small Boy't Arm Broken. About 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon the little flve-year-oldi son of Mr. and Mrs. otto Prtfells, of South Colborn street, fell of^ oner of the outbuildings and sustained a broken arm. The iHme was broken near the wrist on Ills left arm. Dr. Chastain was called and reduced the^ fracture which be does not belipve will give any trouble. Only a few we^ks ago the bab)r at this same home fell from a wlnidow and its little feet sank four Inches Into the soft mud under the window, thus saying it: LOCAL NEWS. Mrs. Dr. Morgan left this morning for a visit with relatives at LeRoy. C, G. Mull leaves tonight for Caney, Kansas, to remain an indefinite period. Born, Tuesday toj Mr. and Mrs. W. M.

Judge Ewing is running district court still today, the Earl Stout suit against Geo. E. Nicholson being still the sole attraction. Inquiries came thick and fast to this office 'as to what is wrong with the street sprinkling and street paving problems. A lot of valuable good weather has been lost. Her home friends will bo pleased and gratified to learn that Miss Florence Robinson who is attending school at Ottawa university' carried off honors this spring. She ranked first in her class in chemistry and took a second prize in Latin. Vk-A 'Ptrfiet Wall Coating::^ .
