FOR WARTIME PROHIBITION'
A Washington dispatch, dated
Dec. 24, says: A letter from Theodore
Roosevelt, favoring wartime prohibi
tion not only for fighting men, but
for citizens working on railroads, in
factories and shipyards, was made
public tonight by Dr. Clarence True
Wilson, of the national temperance
board. Answering a letter from Dr.
Wilson, Colonel Roosevelt wrote that
he had favored prohibiting the use
of food grains at the outbreak of the
war, and added: "
"Neither the men in the army, nor
the men engaged in doing vital work
for the army in connection with rail
roads, factories, mines and shipyards,
should be allowed to waste strength
and health in drink at this time. The
same reasons that render it neces
sary to prohibit the sale of liquor to
soldiers in uniform, or within a
given number of miles from a mil
itary camp, and to stop its use on
battleships, apply to extending sim
ilar protection for all citizens en
gaged in the work of railroads, fac
tories, mines and shipyards.
"I may mention that my sons who
are now with the army in France,
write me most strongly, just as Gen
eral Pershing has expressed bis pub
lic opinion most strongly as to the
harm done to the men of the army
by permitting the sale of liquor to
them, stating- that they believe in
absolute prohibition for, the army in
war time and one of them adding
that his experience has ma.de a per
manent prohibitionist of him.
"I wish your board every success
in its effort to stop all waste of food,
men, labor and brain power during
these days when the 'nation needs
every energy of 'every man at his
SOLDIERS AT CAMP DEVENS
CHEER MR. BRYAN
From The Boston American.
A Camp Devens, Ayer, dispatch,
dated Dec. 10, says: William Jen
nings Bryan breezed into camp Sun
day and remained two hours. He
called at division headquarters and
was 'warmly greeted by members of
the staff. ,
He inspected company barracks of
the 25th Engineers, an organization
of regulars, and addressed several
hundred soldiers in Y. M. C. A. Hut
No. 23 in the camp of the 301st En
gineers. Colonel , Bryan gave the soldiers a
heart-to-heart talk. In the middle
of his speech a bugle sounded and a
squad of soldiers came tramping into
the hall with their rifles and their
faces glowing after a hike over the
Thinking that the advent of the
late-comers presaged some military
duty, Colonel Bryan was about to
stop his address, but the men ap
plauded and told him to continue.
Later he told them- he thought he had
talked long enough and again they
urged him to "keep it up."
At the close of his speech the men
flocked to the platform to shake his
hand and gave him three cheers. In
the evening he spoke at Harvard.
