SPEAKS AT THE

The Itcv. M. S. Poulson of Lincoln
the district manager of the anti-saloon
league, was in the city yesterday and
occupied the pulpit at the Methodist
church during the morning and at 3
o'clock' in the afternoon delivered a
very able address at the Presbyterian
church in the interest of the organiza
tion for which he works. The meet
ing was opened by singing "Work for
; ; , Coming," after hich
prayer was offered by the iicv. W. H.
Lampe of Oamha, then "America"
was sang by the entire meeting. The
address followed in which Rev. Poul
sou said in substance:
The anti-saloon league is not an
organization, as is generally held, it
is not a political party, but only work
and through the churches and the
already organized political parties,
but support such candidates as are
pledged to push the work of teinperanc
and further the work which is for
making of better government. The
speaker said that they of the organi
zation in the first place began to work
against the saloon keeper, but not in
a nersonal sense, but found that it
was not always him that paid the fines,
and for the license, but some one be
hind him in the case, and that after
the investigation which they were mak
ing had been pushed farther it was dis
covered that the real interest in keep
ing the saloon going was the United
Brewers' association, and that they
were furnishing the money for li
censes, for fines, for fixtures for the
saloon, mid in fact in most cases go
ing behind the saloon and literally
The speaker said that there were
committeemen besides 1,200
ministers who are working for the
cause in the state of Nebraska aud
that they wen" tabulated as friends
of the movement and those who
would support only those who were in
favor of the cause, some (io.OOO
voters. In spei-Ying of the number of
saloons in various cities he said that
Chicago had some 7,000 saloons
running in that place. He also said
that there were nine dry; states, and
that six of them had gone so during
the last two years, and that 71 per
cent of the entire country was dry.
During the last year there were meet
ings of 37 legislatures, and of these
there were 22 which passed laws that
were not in favor of the saloon, while
only five failed to pass laws which had
in their effect the regulation of the

DIES IN HOSPITAL
L. Street Passes Away
Omaha This Morning.
After numberless hours of
suffering, W. L. Street, one
of Plattsmouth's most re
spected and beloved citizens,
passed away this morning at
the Emmanuel hospital at
Omaha. Mr. Street was taken
to this same hospital some
mouths ago, and after a long
period, succeeded seemingly
in recovering from an opera
tion, and returned home, feel
ing greatly relieved and has
since been working until
some two weeks since, when
by taking coin, his old trouble
was aggrevated, and a re
lapse came, causing his re
turn to the hospital at Omaha
on the ninth of this month,
for treatment. The physicans
at the hospital were unable
to relieve the intense suffer
ing which intended this last
sickness, and the condition
of Mr. Street grew worse,
until the end this morning at
7 o'clock. The remains will
arrive this evening and the
funeral services will be held
from his residence, on Wed
nesday morning at 8:,'10. The
interment will 1m; at Red Oak,
Iowa, the same day, the
funeral cortege departing on
