Main Street HOW Till PARIS CHRISTIAN CIIURCII PUT ME IN JAIL In resuming the publication of the BLADE after so long suspension my readers and especially those who live at a distance from me would naturally want to hear my explanation of my silence From the latter part of February until the first of June there was a series of threats violence and pros ecutions at law ending in my being fined 10000 and put in jail for two mouths and the illness of my wife from nervous prostration consequent upon the treatment that I received that made it impracticable and inad visable had it been praclicrble to publish my paper during that tiru Insults were offered me 1q mea in high official position in Lexington and threats of violence against me were made by them The conduct of these men was highly applauded by the newspapers of Lexington all of which are fully in sympathy with the liquor interest The town is dominated by saloon men and whi3 ky drinkers a portion of it Mcgow an street is set apart for bagnios the race course here is daily more and more demoralizing our people a handsome racing club mouse for drinking and race horse gambling has lately been built in the most val uable part of the town many worn en including those that belong to churches go to these horse races and bet on them and excepting one ser mon by Rev J W McGarvcy neith er pulpit nor press has come to my assistance to rebuke these things and this country of churches and colleges claiming to be distinctively Christian presents the anomaly of having the only man in the state who is publicly proclaimed as an in fidel fighting single handed so far as any public effort is concerned an immorality that puts Kentucky in the lead for lawlessness and makes it a proverb for that which is disrep utable throughout the land Of course I refer to George W Bain as a worker against all this but he is national in his influence his labors being from ocean to ocean and I get no more advantage from his advocacy of the same cause thatl do than would any other laborer in this department who may be in the most remote part of the country Moral sentiment and courage are at a low ebb in this State There is great shame and pretense in religion Recently all the churches of Lexing ton united in public resolutions con demning one single house here call ed a poolroom that is simply a smalland insignificant auxiliary to the racing business and one that has no political influence But these churches will not dare pass resolu tions denouncing the saloons and distilleries the race course and the flaunting audacity of the bagnios in our city- I have always announced myself nonresistant but there seems to have been some doubt of my sincer ity and when I brooked insult and threat from men in Lexington anti they found that I was really an ex ception to the popular conception of honor and chivalry in this state it made me a butt for that class of men who would avail themselves of so fine an opportunity to gain die tinetion in Kentucky prominent reputation and four men acting In the interest of the Paris Chrtetinn church three of them being mem bers of that church us I have heard ran up behind me as I wasjust going to step upon a train at a lonely sta tion where no one was in sight captured me and with threats and the most profane language began the outrages upon my rights as u Kentucky citizen that ended in my be ing tined 10000 and being put in jail for two months by the Paris stian church in conjunction with whisky makers sellers and drinkers as any unprejudiced and intelligent citizen in Bourbon county will tell anybody who may ask about it and all because what I was saying in my paper and making damaging raignment of the whisky trade and of a church that would such n trade by taking eueourageI people engaged inthat who had made their and by allowing men engaged in the whisky traffic to be members of that incident has lately occurred in Lexington that indicated something about the courage of those Lcxing ton men who have distinguished themselves by their threats of me they being holders of very lucrative ofllccs in Lexington and therefore under more than ordinary obligation to defend the city with their distinguished physical prowess A coun Gilman who is a saloon keeper har- ing violated an ordinance ofthe city the police attempted to arrest him in broad daylight in the middle of one of the most prominent streets of the city This councilman drew a bowie knife and a pistol and defied the police until they were afraid to approach him The Chief of police came and would not arrest him and he is now under indictment by the grand jury of this county for not having arrested that councilman That saloon keepers defiance of the city was protracted until it was generally known throughout the city and they never did arrest him But of these officers of the city who get their living out ofrich offices of the city who gained such praise from th newspapers of the city for their valor in threatening me known to go unarmed and to entertain Quaker convictions about fighting there was not one to put in an appearance when you would naturally infer from the distinguished intrepedity imput ed to them by the press of the city that any one of them would not have hesitated to walk up to that de fiant saloon keeper and yank him off to the station house without a mo ments hesitancy But those Ipen Knew that saloon keeper would fight and it was not a good opportunity to display their particular kind of valor I do not suppose there is a man in Lexington who thinks that distinguishedthemselves would have dared approach me as they did and talk to me as they did had they thot that I had arms and was ready to use them as they knew saloon keeper councilman McNama ra was Saloon keeper that he is andas much opposed to his business as I am I can but express some feeling of obligation to him for hay iny thus publicly demonstrated what my assailants will do when the true te it of courage comes I have to dry nrra respect for McNamara who c uti ut boldly in the defence and advocacy of his business than I have for any pan who stands in the pulpit and political reasons and to save his salary npoligizes for Me Namaras business or even connives at itnua I believe that that coun cilman has more respect for me who openly oppose his business than he has for those men who designingly strangebutsee me and express his sympathy for me in jail in Paris was Jack Alexander a man whom I had befriended when he used to be a carpenter and men now engaged in the saloon bus iness in Lexington Catholic and imprisonmentis welcomed me back to Lexington and expressed for me a cordial sym pathy that I believe is more gen uine than that the Republican party expressed for temperance in 1888 By the way the go p has since then concluded that the word cordial sounded too much like a fanat ical enthusiasm for temperance and Minneapolisleft pressed tor temperance its sympathy pure and simple The maliciousness and collusion of the Paris Christian church with the liquor interest in their prosecu tion of me has been demonstrated by the fact that the same spirit and same combination that put me in jail also put in jail William T Ficklen publishingwritten me My policy Was to allow that church to exhibit to the world its animus by putting me in jail and I made no defense though I could have com manded any number of witnesses of the truth of what I printed in a let ter that was the principal occasion of that churchs anger against me and that was written by a man who said hs was a member of the Chris tian church and mailed to me from Democracyinman and Judge John G Simrall of Louisville telegraphed me offering their assistance and Christian gen tlemen of Carlisle represented by R A King wrote me asking if they might be permitted to raise the amount of my bail and employ Col Roht G Ingersoll to defend me Many of my friends have reproach ed me that I did not defend myself anil abundantly prove all that my paper had said about that church as the common sentiment is that I could Vtve dune but my belief that ractin from the sentiment and aniinwo of that church would make friends for Prohibition and for me has ben abundantly verified by the meeting anti greeting that hiss been given me by people ofull political and religious faiths and by the cheer that greeted me when I followed out upon the stage of a crowded Lexing ton opera house persons of such dis tinction in Prohibition work as Mrs Lathrop St John Rev Dr Funk ol New York Voice Prof Hopkins antI our own George W Bain The same appreciation of me was ohowu at the Kentucky state convention by the beautiful remarks with which Chairman Harris introduced me to the house and at the National Pro hibition convention there were men and women from ocean to ocean who wanted to see me and shake hands with the man who had been put in iail for his Prohibition work by a church in Kentucky in the county Bourbon that has given its name to whisky all over world At Cincinnati I was standing in the ofiicc of the Grand hotel talking to sonic gentlemen A magnificent looking woman came to me and said Is this editor Charlie Moore that they put in jail in Kentucky I said Yes Sue said Bless your dear heart and gave me both of her bauds I saiiVBless your dear heart who are you She answered Hel en Gougar and took my arm for her escort in the party that consisted of Gov and Mrs St John Dr Funk anti wife George W Bain Mrs Latlirop Dr Lockwood Axel Gustafson and others of similar prominence and importance in the Prohibition cause and went under the escort of a Cincinnati Com mer cial Gazette reporter about midnight over the Rhine to visit the saloons and dance houses of that famous quarter as you may have seen rc ported in the Commercial Gazette Those of that great audience who rr- atICougar know what n grand and magnificent woman physically men tally and morally I had for a com anion on that occasion at Cincin iaatS The outrages and injustice to which I have been subjected in my own state have created a sympathy Jor me and my cause that made the editors and proprietors of the Con testant a Prohibition paper of Cleveland Ohio invite me to come there and accept their assistance in the editing of my paper But Ohio lias Prohibition papers that are in Successful operation there and my aspiration is to fight it out in my own state where the harvest is so great and laborers so few dom inated and cursed by the whisky traffic as we arc In Bourbon coun ty today as will be told you by al dispassionitethe county outside of that part of the Christian church in Paris that is dominated by the rich whisky aris tocracy are my friends I said in one of my papers that if I had a contract to bore for hell fire I would rig my right in front of that keeperhastight opposite that church He calls Derrick cottage and I think I was told that he had sent me word to come and see him It was as I have intimated an arrayagainstjority of Democratic and Republican papers that support the liquor traflic though there are many Democratic papers in the state thai have all the time stood by me In Paris tho on ly one of tho three papers of the town all Democratic that was opposed to me was one the KcntuckianGiti izen edited by Remington a member of the Paris Christian church the editor now being under three indict ments by Bourbon and Scott coun ties lor lawless conduct toward Pro anti Sweeney the pas tor of the church seemed to me to have been and are generally under stood by the people of Paris to have been the most active men in the pros grandfatherBarton the denomipation to which the Chris tian church at Paris belongs and he was baptized in Stone creek at a place that is within fifty feet of the walls of the jail in which that church put me I was ordained to the ministry of the Christian church by Alexander Campbell who became the most prominent figure in that churchand a little be fore the commencement of the war I devoted my life until near the close gospelanthing for my services I preached twice by special request for the church in Paris that has since put me in Jail But as I have intimated the an imus of that church can be more clearly seen by its dealing with Mr William T Ficklen than in my case They put Mr Ficklen in jail at the same time that I was He was the only man in Paris that voted for Fisk and Brooks the Prohibition nominees at the last Presidential elec tion though Dr Brooks is known all over Kentucky as a minister in the Christian church I met him at the Cincinnati convention and he told me his sympathy had been with me all through my imprisonment by the Paris church Mr Ficklen is sixty four years old and for fifty two years has been a member of the Paris Christian church and never before was any charge brought against him by church or state There is not a more peaceable and inoffensive muse in Bourbon county than he is A strong young man is under indict mentby Bourbon county for a per sonal assault upon Mr Ficklen Mr Ficklen was put in iail for having written to mo that Chambers the Mayor of Paris was drunk on the occasion of a certain council meeting Chambers was one of the witnesses for the church against me lie staled on the witness stand that he was a member of the Christian church and that he sold whisky by the quart Mr Ficklen told me that one of his witnesses to prove that Chambers was drunk on the occas ion that he alluded to in his letter to me was one of town councilor Paris Mr Ficklen said to me in jail that to see if that councilman would be willing to testify that Chambers was drunk on the occas ion alluded to he Ficklen had gone to that councilman and asked him if he the councilman did not tell hint that Chambers was drunk and a disgrace to Paris Mr Fick len said to me that the councilman answered him that he had saidso and that he the councilman then added that Chambers was a disgrace to Kentucky and to the United States I know there will be those who will say that I have not told the whole story in Ficklons case and that a man can not be put in jail for that We have all heard that mous story of the lawyer during the war who said to his client in jail They cant put you in jail for what you have done but the only reply that the client could make to his law er was hut jinn in jail I know postivcly that Mr Ficklen was in jail as a prisoner with me because I saw the turnkey put him in and both the prisoner and the turnkey told me that he had been put in by the Par is Christian church and I believe there are today in Paris a thousand people who will say they believe Chambers was drunk at the time Ficklen said he was and I do not believe that there is any first class citizen in Paris who is perfectly dis interested in this matter who will say that he does not believe that Chambers was drunk at the time al hided r IA Democrat in official position in Paris said to me If any man thinks Chambers docs not drink whisky all he has to do is to go into his grocery and smell his breath Mr Ficklen had come to my home in the country on one occasion last fall In order to get to my house he had to travel twenty miles on rail road and then hire a buggy to come eight miles into the country He had never been to my house before and I did not recognize him when I saw him He is rather a poor man He represented to me that a relative uf Chambers had paid his expenses to come and see me and ask me not to publish in my paper that Cham bers was drunk at the time alluded to I do not believe that Ficklen a Prohibitionist would pay his own money and tell a lie to defend Cham bers a whisk selling Democrat I do not believe that any friend of Chambers would have paid Ficklens expenses to come and see me for the purpose that Ficklen said he came unless the friend of Chambers had believed that Chambers had been drunk at the time alluded to and the time alluded to was the same that Ficklens letter to me written before Ficklen came to see me said Cham tiers had been drunk and for the writing of which letter to me and its putiner charges against that church was again indicted The charge for which the church put me in jail stripped of all unnec essary verbiage was that I had said that that church was being conduct ed ba Republican preacher in col lusion with whisky rfiakers sellers and drinkers and that such a church was an engine for evil greater than LexingtonMyhad been to say Democratic whisky makers sellers and drinkers so as by the antithesis to show the collu sion between the Republican preach er and the Democratic liquor deal ers to support the traflic but by an accident either on my part or that of the printers the word Democratic was omitted and the Democratic county attorney that prosecuted me laid emphasis on the fact that I had alluded to the preacher as being a Republican because as he seemed to intimate I had spite against the Re partyA that religious body wrote me a letter from Paris and without giving any name in it re cited the crime and unhappiness which for the last twenty years have happened as a consequence of the liquor traffic to persons in some way connected with that church Though there were no names given and I knew but little about Paris I recog nized some of the cases from having read about them in the newspapers and I thinkall of the cases had from time to time as they occurred been reported in the Paris papers So readily recognized as true were these accounts of my correspondent that the Paris papers published the names of the parties that were allud ed to and the statements made by my correspondent arc recognized as being accurate by nearly everybody who has lived in Paris long enough thingsthattwenty years When they happened and were published one at at a time only the individual family concerned was the sufferer from the publl cation but when they were collated publishedthat it was all the result of the whisky business as everybody knew to be true it made a fearful arraign ment of that church and ofthe whisky business and preacher Sweeney and distiller White stood as devot ed friends on the same witness stand punishedtic but as they expressed it that 1 lad raked up family skeletons and opened afresh wounds that had heal To let bygones be bygones is a rule that papers of Lexington have tried to force upon me In the lilt ijsiic of the last series of my pa Hr nearly two years ago I published about a civil ulllcer aril leader of Kjliiics in Kciuuckr just what the Lexington newspapers had published only a one or or two yoars beforeaud about the truth of which nobody inthc mydoingall they could to excite violence against me The only question of fact as to what I said about that church that I need to sustain by demonstration is as to whether that church in col lusion n ith the liquor traflic as Isaid it was James K lord was the member of the church in whose name the church brought the action against me Ford had been a wholesale whisky dealer while a member of that church anti has continued in that business until he had become bankrupt not a groat while before he swore out the warrants against me I was told that he owed credit ors 1300000 above his assets It was several times suggested to me by people in Paris that Ford had been seected to swear out the warrants against me because ho was financially irresponsible in case I should want to sue for damages Chambers the mayor was a wit ness against me and stated on the witness stand as I have arid that he was a member of that church and that he sold liquor by the quart Thompson Ware another witness against me said he was a deacon in that church He is a clerk in a dis White is distiller and was a witness for the church against me When the four braves as they are called now had mo in their power at Springrale one of them said to me I do not suppose that George White pays more than fifty dollars a year to the Christian church At same time one of the four braves said to me alluding to something that some Paris correspondent had said in a letter to me and which I lied forgotten What if Brother Sweeney does drink what harm is therein it I said to him If there is no harm in it I suppose there could be no harm in saying so I have a letter from a man who claims to be a member of that church that says that Sweeneys father is a whisky drinker and a member of daughterisof that church Not long since tho Blue Grass Clipper of Midway Ky printed an article saying that Sween eys daughter had been drunk on the streets of Midway that she had cor rupted the morals of a young man whose name it gave and of whom it is said that he had been a nice young man about twenty men among the prominent citizens of the town sign ed an article the purport of which was that they did not want her to live in Midway and a press tele gram from Washington stated that she was dismissed from the postal service for immoral conduct- I never heard any one say at Par is that Sweeney drank to excess as they call it but it was a thing of common report that he takes his dram especially when he goes fish ing It was reported at Georgetown Sweeneysdebate debt of at the Wells house and left it for the church to pay The Wells house and its bar belong to a number ot the Christian church in Georgetown I went to see the Wells house bar keeper about the re port about Sweeney I found him fixing a drink for a man who is a leader in Democratic politics and Baptist religion and I talked to the bar keeper about Sweeneys case when the brother was done I am of the opinion that that report about Sweeneys bill of six dollars is not true but I think he got more or less liquor from that bar which was probably sent to lids room by friends There is a woman who is a mom ber of the Paris Christian church who habitually gets so drunk that she reels on the streets and the fact that she thus gets drunk is known to almost anybody in the town She was a good friend to me so I under stood and I hate to allude to her case and only do so to prove the truth of what I have said I know of my personal knowledge very little about Paris and shall now give some cases that I only know ol from information furnished me by what seemed to be good and intelli gent citizens of Paris Lon Haley is that soninlaw of Gecrge White aid is a partner with White in the distillery He is an Irishman and left the Catholic church to join the Christian church in Paris Ga no Lear and Arch Stout are saloon keepers and members of that church William Current is a saloon keeper whose family are members of that church and he pays for the support of that church though he is not a member I heard the number in the the membership of that church esti mated from one thousand to twelve hundredand a gentleman some of whose family are members of that church said to me that he supposed there were two hundred people in the church who drank whisky Mr Davis was a witness for the church He seems to be regarded as one of the best men in the town He said be was familiar with tho usages of the church and that he had never bodyTherefied for the church against me One was related to the present Mayor of Paris and of the other two one was the wife and the other a sisterin law of a former Mayor of Paris prominentchurch there lIe was a wholesale liquor dealer while a member of that church and became bankrupt and committed suicide in the Ashland hotel in Lexington The details of it vrero published at tho time in the Ledngou and Paris papers and are stil fresh in the minds of the peo ple of this country That was a sample of the cases that were alluded to in the letter to me from Paris my publication of which gave such to of that town Horace Miller is a deacon in the Christian church at Paris I have now in my possession a letter written ylJthatChristian church She states in her letter that Horace Miller occupies a pew that is in front of her says that Miller prays publicly in the church and that at an election a UHlerIwhisky to her husband and sonin law that so made drunkards of them again after one had quit for a year and the other for three years that she and her daughter had been com pelled to support the family I had heard before I got that letter that Miller had used whisky to secure his election and that he had been beaten by a Presbyterian who also used whisky and that he was the soninlaw of a Presbyterian minis ter Both were Democrats Crad RemingtonioCitizen a Democratic paper first told me this account of Miller It was on the street in front of the North LexingtonA lately in Lexington and talking in the presence of a friend of mine against me My friend without letting the Par is mean know that he was my friend asked tho Paris man what had set the Paris people so against me The Paris man said that a lame Confed keepI allow him to conduct his saloon as he could not matte a living any oth er way The Paris man said Mr Sweeney had taken him into his church and that I had written against it in a manner that gave the people offense I never had heard of the case until ray Lexington friend told me and never wrote anything about any saloon keeper in Mr Sweeneys church until this article which you now read A common statement made to me by Democrats Republicans Prohibitionists men and women Chris tionists and infidels preachers and drunkards was that I had not told half that I might have told that was true about people who were in some way ia cahoot with that Christian Myalla Methodist Republican who beat Horace Miller for the State legislature in that Democratic county came to see me in jail and said to me that what I had said about that church would do it more good than anything that had been done for it in twenty years To All of Those to Whom the Blade is regular ly sent All of those to whom the BLADE is regularly sent will find

Uncle Franklin liked to round his sentences with long words and I did not even mention that the resident of a twostory cottage in the suburbs was scarcely to be reckoned amongst those likely to keep

have been for sonic time considering the means of increasing the water sup pl which is inadequate even for the present population As any of the works proposed could not be constructed in less than ten years and as it would onlJjustcity at the end of that period it has decided that the works should lIe on a scale commensurate with the probable number of inhabitants fifty years hence It must be remembered that the trict now controled by the London county council is less extensive than the area whose inhabitants entirely dependent on the metropolitan water supply The number of persons in this latter area is the and threequarters millions and it is their increase which must be es timated before the quantity of water needed hill a century hence can de fined The estimates wi11oC course differ according to factors of growth assumed If it be taken for granted that the British metropolis will continue to grow at rate exhibited between the censuses of and then in HIll it will contain no fewer than 17W7C5 human beings Ifon tilL other hand we suppose that the re cent rate of progress can not be kept up and that metropolis hereafter will only expand by means of the natural imnase of births

us the most reasonable estimate of the population of London fifty years hence nnd they accordingly recommended that the scale of the new works should bt adjusted to this computation This estimate is too and in mal ing it the committee art falling into ai error similar to that of the commission which in was appointed for the same purpose The latter hmoilycs pressed the conviction that the time was very remote when the population of London would be 500000 Yet yeariiivtjtion dependent on the water supply is nearly 5000001 That is to SayShit rate of increase since ISliJ huts beer considerably greater han that prjj viously exhibited and there can be no reason why a corresponding increase in the rate of growth should not again disclose itself Assuming however that the rate of growth will

for two yearsi It is obvious that no city comparable in size with the London of the future can ever exist upon the continent of Europe until there is a general disar rangement of the nations and a univer Iacquiescence in the regime of peace To such a huge urban population massed under supremely artificial con ditions the relative security afforded by Englands insular situation is indis pensable Paris lenin Vienna must incessantly contemplate the possibility of invasion and it is certain that no city containing seventeen millions of inhabitants could withstand a siege The unprecedented

particularly objectionable as rail road passengers These holy men are generally very dirty as thc can not spare time from their religious devo tions and incessant begging to attend to their toilet fakir is addicted to the practice of rolling himself in filth and smearing himself with dig gusting substances in order to propitiate the deity he serves It is hard to decide what to do with these objectionable persons when they apply for tickets on the cars The ticket agents fear that if they refuse to let the fakirs ride it might raise a re ligious disturbance It is estimated that three million of these mendicant priests are in the Indian peninsula Most of them are regarded by the ropean population as mere humbugs who are too lazy to work for a living It is believed that many fakirs become what they out of sheer religious devotion for it is hard to suppose that any human being through a mere love of imposture would consent to keep his fists closed until his nails grew through back of his hand or would hold both above his Jicad until the limbs became withered The gen eral feeling however seems to be that most of the present genera lion of fakirs in India are roguuesof the worst descrip tion who use their supposed sanctity to maIm money out of their dupes- A fakir who applied at a railroad ticket office not long ago illustrates the peculiar problems with which In dian railway have to deal He had contracted the erroneous notion that in order toshow hissanctity it was necessary for him to wear on his person n greater burden of chains than a prison convict ever staggered under Chains and iron bands were loaded on his per son until he could hardly walk When lie asked for a railroad ticket the agent did not feel disposed to allow all that weight of hardware to be carried on the price of a passenger fart He thought it a dangerous precedent to establish He thereupon informed the ironbound theologian that if he wished to travel by that line he must put his iron chains in a box or other receptacle anti ward them at the ordinary freight rates In other words he would not be permitted to travel unless he stripped himself of his armor The fakir is usually a most voluble person and that particular specimen was nothing loathe to argue the mat ter He talked for more than an hour but could not change or soften the heart of the station agent anti at last he betook himself away in sadness and with all his iron drapery wrapped about him The railroads have also had considerable trouble with fakirs because they have refused to transport their devotional instruments free of charge Altogether the fakir is regarded as a troublesome and unpleas ant personage ly all Europeans who come in contact with hmmuttN Y Sun ITALYS HOLD ON ART Dovotiil to the Preservation nnd Propagation of Artistic Work idea of putting a stop to the destruction of art relics first culminated in Home Soon papal decrees took up the complaints helping indirectly without doing any great good These laws treat entirely of the preservation of antique works of art in public places and the disposal of those found by cavating so that in less than a century necessity demanded the protection of law to be extended to modern art worls to those in private posses lon In a law was passed in Tosoana requiring palace owners to preserve weapons devices etc of the founders In a law followed which fur bade the exportation of paintings by eighteen ministers and in Perugino was added to the list Finally in lfril the papal government took a divisive step forbidding by law exportation of both ancient and modern works without a previous license From that time on law followed law flimsily terminating in the famous edicts of Cardinal Pacca of March and April which hold

delegate the National Baptist Young Peoples Convention lie likened the two old parties to the Siamcnsc twins said they bound together by the common bond of the American saloon To sever this bond would kill both old parties These parties had at last admitted there was no living issue with them and had settled down on the tariff a question that never has been settled Biul never will be I am free to confess said speak er that I dont care anything about tariff I know that if workingmen of this country will stop paying so much for liquor they could pay high est kind of a protective tariff and still be money ahead anti manufactur ers could stand free trade if their trade were not diverted to the saloons It is by this seesaw game of tariff that old parties hold their following in line and by appealing to their section alism anti prejudice Down south they have only to yell yankee and up north rebel anti the poor fellows hurry to get back in line I was told by a hap tist minister from Kentucky that he would like to vote prohibition ticket first rate anti he would do it only he was afraid republicans would get in and I was told identically same timing by a good Illinois Christian only his fear was that democrats would got in They admitted that it would be right to vote the prohibition ticket anti that the only way to get to Heaven was by doing right I was brought np a democrat and gave to that party for many years my earnest work prayers but when I saw that it was utterly impossible fore man to be either a democrat or repub lican anti be a Christian I made up my mind that would rather give up party titan my hopes of Heaven I have been labored with earnestly by many of my former political associates and told that if I anti others kept on in this course we would break up the solid sunlit and to all touch I have replied All right so long as we break up solid ruin devil In language of an illustrious patriot Let er bust consequences never fall on man who does right they are always on the other fellow But salvation of this country means more than liquor question Itmeans preservation to America of in estimable boon of American institu tions For unless this terrible influx of foreignization dont say foreigners unless this foreignization is stopped time is coming when we shall in America have a Babel that will rival pandemonium It is for American boys and girls that we are called upon to do service to save in the generations near at hand American womanhood anti American childhood I met a small Kansas boy in St Louis Mo coil asked him if he haul ever seen a saloon Oh yes lots of them here in St Louis ho replied did you ever see one in Kansas I asked No said he never saw one in niy life till I came to St Louis Did you ever see a saloon sign or liquors for sale anywhere in Kansas No said he I never did And thats only republican prohibition that they have in Kansas Wait till we get prohibition prohibition then boys and girls of America will not have their pure young minds and hearts blackened by familiarity of these snares set for the corruption of their bodies and proimibitionrepresents true rising manhood of this nation It is only party that is even talking temperance The republican party never has done anything since it did that first timing It has been living on wind ever since and is getting fearfully anti wonderfully thin Thus we have

back from hearing Sam Jones at the High Bridge Camp Meet ing Took my youngest boy my wife wont go to them she draws the line at camp meetings and circuses She dont go much but when she does she floes to Cincinnati and takc3 in Lohcngriin with such folks as Patti and Albini and Nicolini in the caste nut theres noth ing stuck up about me I n ould not go to a one ring two clown circus nor to an ordinary Methodist camp meeting I think they are demoralizingand that Christian people ought not to pat ronize them but a man or a woman who never saw Barnutn nor Jumbo nor sam Jones has not seen all of the world by a large majority- I had heard that story that old Horace Greely got off about elders at camp meeting time for at least five years fore I ever caught on to it One day it just happened to strike me as I was walking along by myself up by the custom house in Lexington and I just thought in my soul it would kill me I laughed for a week Its to tough to put in a newspaper but any newspaper man can tell you about it I am no prude nor Puritan if I am a Quaker I havo no respect for any man who will tell me a story that is simply filthy The dirtiest man in the world to ma is a dirtystory teller but if jest a lit tie smut neeclisarylike the shadingin the back ground of a picture to point a moral or adorn a tale I am not scan MfodVffii I teeth lu U Cw reaching trads xtjetlf I Vxrr their ways WheI elI hear 030 of these old sanctification Methodists getting off that Amen pay they have among them I always think about old Greely story about camp meeting elders I suppose a thousand of these old time religious liars and hypocrites who think the main part of religion is to be lieve those old Jew Snake and Fish stories have said to mo that they did not object to my having my peculiar religious notions if I would only keep them to myself Thats exactly what I say about any religion I dont mind how much of it a man has just so he keeps it to himself But when you hear a man claim that he is sanctified and he gets to doing that ftiuien racket and Praise the Lord business if you have anything valuable about you you had better watch it That fellow is fixing to steal something or run off with some woman the first time he gets a chance The first three or four hundred times I read how Sum Jones had picked out one of these sanctified coons in his dience and called him a damned old beet nose sofa I enjoyed it very much but after that it got to be somewhat monotonous- I cant say exactly that I was so much impressed with the rhetorical finish of the expression bat I was powerfully impressed with the great amount of Gods truth ia it If a man purely from an admiration of the heroic character of Jesus Christ wants to imitate and emulate his life and character and goes along through life honest and kind and doing any good that happens to come into his way and is jolly as long as ho can be and is sad when he is in trouble and cant help himself and you never hear him say anything about religion any way cept when some body wants to tall to him about it that man will do to tic to But when you come across one of these sanctificattonists that packs u bible arouud with him and culls Sunday Sabbath and is always asking you if you cant drop in some night around at his prayer meeting it will pay you to watch that fellow lies got some scheme on land nod hes going to swindle you the first tints he gets a chance Nearly all prayer meeting going and church going that is done these days by men in town is done for business advertisement In the country they go to talk politics and gossip about farming The women go to show their clothes and tho young people go to see each other Tne sermon in at least nino cases out of ten is a perfect bore t ovary laxly and they all go home and lie about how they enjoyed it Hut when you to hear Sam Jones there is something just as really enjoyable in itas in going to a good circus I know that what I am now saying nboir Sam will sound strange to those who have read any of my many previ ous utterances about him I went to hear him this time it being the second time expecting to say in my report of him that I exceedingly doubted whether he was any good to the Prohibition cause Of course the methodist part of his religion is all pop pycock to me but I naturally felt all prejudice in favor of his prohibition politics I had actually chosen the first line of the article that I was going to write about him I was going to say that Sam Jones Sunday hell tariff and base ball were five American institutions that made me tired to read about but I am going to take Sam off that list- I have always thought it strange that I radically disagreed with some men that I liked when wo came to talk abou Sam Jon is met at the national Prohibition convention at Cincin nati Editor Armistead of the Nashville Issue He is tl nice man and a clear cut gentleman a titan after my own heart and edits a Prohibition paper that I wish I could make one like as a general thing but sometimes ho fills his paper with the durndcst rot about Earn Jones that I ever read and yet 0 ate strange lo say I road every thing in it whore I see Sam Jones name lire Arinisteail is a straight goods orthodox Christian of thin Methodist stripe I think and it would seem natural that he should be stuck csi San IJltt thats only half If theres another man in the United States who is as good a Pro hibitionist as I am it is Bro Y W God dard of JIarrodsbnig Ky lie is just as straight goods a heathen as I am and will cuss a little beside when he hears some fool talking against woman suffrage lint lies dead gone on Sam Jones and will talk your arm off about him any time you have two or three days to listen to him Now how do you account for that kind of a mixtry Let me give you a pointer The Jlil lennirm is coming and it will be here lefore you know itt In twentyfive years from now the people will no more listen to a man preach who does not vote for Prohibition than they would listen to a horse thief preach Kentucky preacher today who votes for this drunken Democratic gang that has charge of the politics of this state is worse than forty horse thieves thejwarcitizen stole a horse or several of them When they had mo in jail down at Par is there was a great big honest hearted farmer that had a fist lito1 hog mall that used to come to see me two or three times a week lie was a Presby terian and the first time I ever saw or unsaid of him ho and an Irish Cath olic came to see me at the jail and he quoted to me that I had said in the lirADi that Catholicism was the worst religion that the devil had ever invent ed except Presbyterianism and then he told me that ho was a Presbyterian and that the other fellow was a Catholic I told them yes I had said it and I would say it again I was trying to bluff them Things were looking awful squally for me down there about that time and I didnt know whether those two fellows were going to head a mob to hang mo or not I thought they might CampbeUite preachers or dis tillers or both and I know there was no tolling what that combination would do except something that was honest Well when I said what I did they both pulled out their money and paid me for my paper for a year in advance That Presbyterian was a Rebel sol dier lie fonmthtall tho way through the war and he and his gang kept it up for mouth or two after Lee had surrendered sit Appoxietox because he vras away oil scfnovhire sad did not fiai eat t it tbs rrrWM errer until two i7tfs Usxtcs frf fl That IVcsbjtorian had had about twenty five fist fights since the war and he would havo whipped Sweeney and Remington for me any day Ien couraged hint to do it lie liked me so he said for what I had done for the Rebel boys during the war then he hated Sweeney on general principles and then he hated him like any Presby terian hates a Campbellite and then ho hated him because he is a Republican As for Remington the fact that he was one of the four braves that captured me at Springvalc line fixed his standing in the estimation of any truly brave man So that in spite of that Presbyte rians religion he is a man after my own heart But what I was going to say about that Presbyterian was that he talked about stealing a horse during the war as if he did not think it any more harm than a Sunday school superintendent cashier would think it was to steal money out of a bank I never exactly stole a horse myself but when I was a college boy I have pretty early in the night borrowed some fellows horse saddle and bridle and neglected to not ify the owner that I had done so and after I had ridden out in the mountains and tho moonlight until about midnight I have brought hint tack and put him in some other fellows stable for his owner might be around if I brought him back to where I got him but I am not enough of a hypocrite to stand in a pulpit and under the guise of try ing to do good for humanity preach Christianity and then go and vote with either of those gangs that representing Democracy and Republicanism lately disgraced civilization at Minneapolis and Chicago by crowding like beasts into every saloon and bawdy house in those two cities and thus inviting the youth of the land to do tho same I am going to talk to you straight These timings arc disgraceful You may pick out the best Republican and Dem ocratic preachers in Kentucky who have intelligence and common sense enough to appreciate the crime against civilization that they are committing when they rote with that kind of cattle and if heaven is to bu peopled with that kind of psalm singing hypocrites I xvant my baggage checked for the other place as soon an the breath is out of my body Talk about religion and patriotism and Southern chivalry and Democracy and talkabout sending the gospel to the heathen while Bourbon county will let a Republican CmpbclliU preacher who has just capacity enough to tce1 il life Qssrs ling with toiwo foci MctSoSht aiontsnilsMlsg inbhar and who hatno more decency than to turn the bottoms of his shoes propped on a chair to my wifes face as she sat in the court house watching cast the very picture of grief and the object of the sympathy of every true man in the house think of letting a mnn of his moral nail intellectual cut come to the limo grass region of lon tueky from the back woods of some Western state and when enough of disgrace hail befallen his family Lling a blush to tho cheek of a govern ment mule such a fellow as that gnu go on with a lt of old rich whisky ig noramuses anti put not only me the grandson of Barton W Stone with the blood of the Argyles in my veins in jail in Paris with the lowest of nogro murderers nail thieves but also put in William Iicklca who had been for fif ty two years an exemplary member of Christian church and for nolhingon Gods earthor devils whichever it belongs to except that hires Ficklen and I were both Prohibitionists and we were exposing the collusion tween that Republican preacher and those Democratic whisky makers As for me and my its all right to let me go to the devil if I want to I am a heretic and its the business of the church to pcisociite men of my stripe lint if blood of righteous Abel cried unto the Lord from the dust of Armenia it scorns to me that the tears of Wil liam Piclden that the deputy jailor ail both saw in his eyes in the Paris jail mint appeal to the Christian church of the United States for redress ajfstinrt that fellow Sweeney who had him put there and if that church does not investigate that case and repudiate that man Sweeney they are not the pea ple I took them to be But I was going to tell you about that millcnium business The first thing you know you will vralco up some of these mornings and the millenium will be here Theres going to be one great big church and its going to bo a combination of Prohibition and the kind of religion I am preaching to you In that church nobody will care about what anybody believes the only test of membership will be what a body tines Sam Jones spoke of tho Chris tian church as Campbcllitcs but he said he liked them ho said the Methodist believed anything and everything you told him because he was afraid the devil would get him if ho did not lieve He said the Baptist believed in believing and in being baptized but he said the Campbcllitcs wanted you to believe and to be baptized and then to do something after these two had been done Sams head was just as level a squash as he says Theoretically Campbellites arc the nearest right of any of the orthodox religionists and reason of it is that they have less orthodoxy in them than any of the churches They are coming to the front fast on the Prohibition line and it will soon be nip and tuck between them and the Methodists with the odds in favor of tuck in Prohibition They are to cowardly to stand up to the prin ciples of their unwritten creed on tho Sunday question All of them know thalSunday is not a part of Christian ity and they do lay too much stress on the baptism business All good in their creed was put there by my grand father who at heart was just as much of a heretic as I am and of precisely tho same stripe lie could not stand the racket against him in his day because he hind nobody and nothing to back him lie said a half loaf was better than no bread and liko Solon said he made laws for Ath ensnot the best he could make but the best they would stand my grand father gave the people of his day the best religious instruction that they were capable of receiving and appro priating All the trumisay in two Campbellite church was put there by Alexander Campbell and is dregs of the old Scotch Presbyterianism that he made a fairly good but somewhat unsuccessful effort to get rid of The oi f3ttcin a and I used to run to w t Jdod dsnl axd I sftrald liars tried to put something little fresher in the way of theology into his head but he was too old and too much set in his nays for one as young as I was t tackle I am the only fellow I ever saw that made him laugh I dont know whether ho laughed with me anti I dont care but us laughed all the same nut I was telling you about the re naissance in religion Things are going back to the old style in religion just like they have done in furniture and architecture T 5S The religion of Jesus Christ as he taught it and as it was practiced down as far perhaps as to the conversion of Constantine was a grand thing but this thing they call the church and Christianity now is not oven a magnif icent farce The best church in Lex ington is a fraud and a humbug and sooner it is closed out better for humanity No preaching that a man does for pay is what it ought to be Jesus Christ never got a nickel for the sermon on the mount At the same time that that Paris Christian church hail Fickleu and me in jail because we were Prohibitionists it had its organ ist Dutch infidel probably at a Keel ey whisky cure ia Lexington and two of fellows running the Rocky cure arc Lexington saloon keepers And yet if you just want to raise particular hell and stir upa hornets nest you go down to Paris and say that Christian church there is a shebang in cahoot with the liquor business and get that couuty Attorney that be longs to everlasting Smith family to giving the jury the etymology of the words cahoot and shebang Ill bet if one of these Virginia moun tian owls should fly over Paris some night and hollow cahpot cahoot like I used to hear them in winter nights when I was a student at Bethc ney Sweeney and Remington and Ford nail White and Horace Miller anti Chambers and Alexander anti that other rich old devil that dont keep may trotters but keeps a walker would have that owl indicted by the grand jury if it cost them 1000 to Lay up the jury- Durned fools if they had had as much sense as saddle rock ojster they would have known that their putting me in jail was a better advertisement for me and my paper and prohibition and would do us all more good than if every one of them used that four and r half millions of dollars that they used on the bonds of the four bravos and one on the road as drummers for U4 l1LtIi Gxu RLAlla Rise faIlofmsmars furnished the more material for a newspaper than Brick Pamroy had in old Beast Rut lor Butler with his old cocked eye and pocket full of silver spoons was blessed angel with wings on him com pared with the very best one in that gang nut I was telling you about Sam Jones and that Prohibition church You all may think you aro going to down my religion but you will never do it You may beat me but just as sera you are a foot high my religion is a go I am just as certainly rigut in my religion as am in my polities I thought that possibly Uobt Give of St Louis was going to do something in the line of my religion but his ideas are a kind of a sillabub froth withal out as touch substance in them as some of George Barnes vagaries and lie is taking no part in any of the great issues that are before the world Ii01iloiver of Arena is a great man and is doing much for the Prohibition cause but he lessens his influence as a thinker by attempting to defend hypnotism nail that kind of tomfoolery that lax not even us much substantial basis as the ICcely cure Its a strange timing about that hypno tism anti stuff of that Nina A funny thing aout it all is that the large majority of those people tire in fidels and decline to believe Chri tian religion according to tho old orthodox picw of it because it asserts I miracles but I would just as soon lieve in all the talking snakes and talk ing jackasses from Genesis to Revelations as lo believe the cock and bull stories that Flower offers in the July Arena in support of hypnotism But the beauty of our religion is that any man can believe what lie wants just so he does right and is tuging to do something to help humanity You recollect that Catholic priest Mahoney from Minnesota that gave a hundred dollars to the Prohibition national executive committee at the Cincin nati convention Thats tho only priest that I evencallcd Father or spoke of as Father except Father Mathew I would just as soon call the devil Father as the average beetnosed priest with a baywindow on him that looks like he just swallowed a keg of beer and forgot to take the keg off of it But I never in nil my life met a man that my heart warmed up more cordially titan it did to Mahoney The papers stated that when Father Maim ncy opened the session of one days con vention with an extemporaneous pray er it was second instance on record in America where any priest had done it Wo accidentally sat side by side at the table at the Palace hotel in Cincin nati the first time we met and ho said to me that he had thoroughly made a martyr of himself in making that prayer I had a scat near him on the platform when he was praying and I could tell that it was an entirely new busi ness with hint Catholics know that God hasnt done any talking to men since he wrote Hebrew Bible and the Greek New Testament and superintended thin translation ol the Latin Vulgate and they are not exactly certain about Gods understanding English and Dutch or aniof these modern languages and the priests aint willing to fool with them when they have any praying to da I should not be surprised if there was something in it I was in France once I had learn ed French according to the Allendorf method I dont believe that God would have understood what I meant if I had said my prayers in French I know the French could not understand my French but none of them had ever studied French they had just sorter picked it up at home I never was in my life so touched by a prayer as I was by Father Mahoneys English prayer with just a little suspicion of Irish brogue to it If there is anything that makes me tired it is to hear one of these dandy preachers get off a prayer so as to have the newspaper reporters say of it that it was ono of the finest prayers ever delivered to an American audience Mahoney was too much of a scholar and too good and honest a man to make a fool of himself by saying any cviodently as lie said martyrizing himself for conscience sake and it more im pressed me with the goodness of the man titan any prayer I ever heard any man make- When we met at tho hotel dinner table and were talking about it and I was expressing to him ray appreciation of his prayer ho stopped suddenly and looked at me and said Are you the man they put in jail in Kentucky I said yes Give mo your hand said he and he stool it with a warmth and earnestness that made the tears scoot up in the corner of my optic To see one of these Lexington Catho lic gin slingcrs come into church and bow down to a plaster of Paris Saint Peter with a couple of big smoke house Keys under one arm and a ledger with his fish accounts under other crc rites just about sismuch religion reverence in my mind as it docs to see a lot of Chinaman stick little sticks in a flower pot of dirt and worship them like they do in their Joss houses nut between Father Mahoney and me there is four times as much religioussympathy as there is between any two preachers of different sects in Kentucky- I reckon I have written more against Sam Jones than any other man in Ken tucky Tho time I heard him preach before I thought he was most un mittigated bore that I had ever heard lIe made a slam at all infidels said they were all mouth and that they reminded him of the pictures of the hippopotamuses on tho circus bills Barman had been through the country and had pictures of hippopotami pasted around every where with mouths so big and so wide open that in the front view of them that was given you could not see much but the inside of tho ani mal For several years I could not see one of those pictures without thinlting of Sam Jones who spoke his own lan guage ungrammatically talking about such men as Alexander Von Humbolt Guiodano Bruno Thomas Jefferson and Ben Franklin as being all mouth But I must now say that the sermon or talk or whatever it was that Sam gave us yesterday Saturday July at High Bridge Camp meeting was one of the most unique and original and truly witty things that I overheard It had some coarseness in it and yet it seemed tin necessary thing to impress upon Ute minds of his hearers thin terribly important things that ho was ing lie made mo feel ashamed of some of my imperfections and made mo want to try to do bettor when the sermon of a big distinguished Metho dist preacher who spoke before Jones ltd put me to sleep It perfectly un fits a man to listen to Ute conventional platitudes of one of these elegant city preachers Sam Jones is not consistent man nor lor that matter is any man I called to see him at his cottage before sermon lie got out a stinking old pipe and lighted it while I was his jiiisr and without even going through that empty form of asking me if it was dixagreablu to me If ho shouldsome day come to see me and should pull out real energetic and enterprising pole eat and begin to perfume the room with him Bro Jones would ba offend ed And yet when it comes to perfumer as between a polo cat situ a pipe give me the pole cat all time No moral responsibility attaches to the summit Hes built that way from heredity has received perverted views as to what smells good and to what dons not a man who smokes a pipe in my presence does not morcly offend my olfatanos he olfjnds my sense of right and decency and common sense anti makes me want to CUB I would forty to one rather cuss a blue streak forty times a day than to smoke a pipe once a day Let mo tell you something straight and without arguing the case No man can be a full grown Christian who uses tobacco in any shape Now f il Lot pour motto bo Never buy until you try dlsuo manir what othr Aorll s e I Mens and Boys ClothingFirst very best 10

in Plain Figures put that in your pipe and smoke it Bro Jones if you will smoke And yet Sam Jones frame into the stand only a few minutes after that and gave small boy the very devil about smoking cigar ettes and said he would wear hide off of his toys if they should do such a thing and then quoted that durned old old mate Solomon who had a whole Megowan Street to himself and never saw half his own babies to prove that walloping was all right Solomon said spare the rod and spoil the child my heretical religion says spate the child and spoil the rod If I had risen up before Sam Jones and called him a damned old Metho dist hypocrite he could have gotten a little touch of how it feels when lie links into others And yet I never in my life saw a more glaring inconsist ency between n mans preaching and his practice than Sam Jones got off about his smoking If Jesus Christ hail smoked a pipe or chawed terbackcr he never would have been heard of three weeks after the Jews killed him ugliest thing that I saw done by any Prohibitionist at the convention at Cincinnati was dono by Dr John A Brooks that we voted for for Vice President of the United States on the Prohibition ticket four years ago lie and I were educated at the same college and were preachers in the same church lIe was asking mo about how that gang at the Paris Christian church had treat ed me When I call them a Christian church I simply mean to designate but not to describe them I think they have disgraced the name lira Brooks was telling me that he had sympathized with me in the treat ment I had received at the hands of that church and in so doing used two words that I have never used at any time that I can recollcctnor overheard any one use and ho wound up a sent ence by spitting a great gob of tobacco juice on the white marble floor of the hotel in which we were standing II would not for forty dollars have put that nasty puddle there for some pcor Irish girl to mop up Of course I love Dr Brooks and wish he was Vice President of the United States today but how long do you think its going to take a Christian preacher of that kind to convert a hea then of my stripe Sam Jones is all wrong in his fighting business Whipping that Texas Mayor gave Sam some eclat among some people and I am afraid among some Prohibitionists but if Sum lies started out to be a Christian in the sense that he wants to do like Jesus did he compromise himself in that Texas fight I think I could whip Sam Jones without much trouble but I would not want glory of having whipped that Texas Mayor know a hull dog that can whip Sam Jones and his Mayor and me all together if we were all put on any thing like an actual footing with the dog You may say that if it is found out that a man will not fight ho will be bounced and insulted by every coward in the country Thats so but they ti A B L E R D 0L iIII 0 R E AND IN 22 MAIN ST did Jesus Christ the same way and heI came out on top at last Preachers not often get
