A a i am going to speak to you to night on Christian citizenship a said he but at the same time i do not wish to discourage you in the work of your local organization a the anti Saloon league while calling attention to the larger organization which i represent. American labor limps on with its unequal Yoke with capital because it lacks the Clear head and the steady hand of a temperate people. The accidental death of the Drunken labourer has got to paid for the industrious classes who were in no Way to blame. Abolish the Saloon and the Saloon drug store which is about As much to the purpose in a Small atty and you have taken a step in the right direction. Every american citizen is endowed with certain inalienable rights among which Are life Liberty and a Chance to Happy. The inalienable right of life a even a beggar s baby has a right to live. And do you know that to night while we Are Here thirty to sixty a Hies will stretch their Little hands toward this great Republic and cry a life life a and strangle Back into the unknown without having heard anything but a Drunken snore who takes care of these babies we All Lookout for ourselves but who looks out for the drunkards Home his wife and his Bab ies a you All remember of Reading in the papers a Short time ago of the Man who was a drunkard and the son was a drunkard arid How the poor widow would go each night to the bedside of of her son where he Lay in a half Drunken stupor and entreat him to quit drinking and each time he would make the same old worthless Promise and How one evening when the fond Mother was kneeling the bedside with tears in her eyes he became enraged at her and leaping upon her trampled her poor old face with his heavy boots so that in the morning she could not recognized her friends. Who takes care of the drunkards widows there is also another instance which is fresh in the minds of Many of us Here to night. A Young Man who was in the habit of drinking took the Gold cure returned to his family and for a time All went Well. The glad smile came Back to the face of his Long neglected wife and she began to sing again her old familiar songs. After a while a Little baby came Aud the Home was Complete in its happiness Tine Day the husband went to town met some of his old associates and when he came Home he was in an intoxicated condition. Feeling guilty because he had been tempted and had fallen he shouted to his wife a Why Haven you dinner ready a and his wife told him that the baby had been so sick that it had required her whole attention. In a sneering Way he retorted a a in la take care of the baby a and he did. Ile took it its Little feet and dashed its brains out against the cottage Wall then this new it in the Cradle at the feet of its Mother who stared at its lifeless form with the wild eyes of a maniac. To night this murderer Waits in a prison cell to pay the penalty of his awful crime while his unfortunate wife sits All Day in an imaginary rocking chair swaying to an fro to the rhythm of Lullaby songs. The City Council of Minneapolis has passed an ordinance compelling women to go to the opera House Bare headed so that the men who sit behind them will not prevented from seeing the actor s feet. This is Good As far As it goes. I also notice that there have been restrictions passed in regard to the Selling of Lump Jawed cattle in Chicago that Slot machines have been debarred. This is All Well enough but where do you see any legislation for the Protection of our boys there is a Law in this country in regard to usury which says to the Money Loaner a a of shall not tempt the poor Man to pay you More than the Legal rate of interest on a loan no matter How badly the poor Man May need the but where do we find any legislation that says to the Saloon keeper a a of shall not tempt the drunkard a you cannot find it. Rut on the contrary the drunkard is the helpless prey of the Saloon keeper. In the last six months 100,000 babies subject to epileptic fits were born of Drunken parents. If the legislators would adopt the statutory prayer a god merciful to me a fool a they would at least doing something. We All know what you did with the Gold question last election and what you tried Taw do with the Silver but what did you do with our inalienable rights you sold them sold them to the liquor traffic.
