The postponed meeting of the Citizens
Tnw and Order loapao was held last
night in the Y. M. 0. A. rooms. The
meeting was called to order by President
Labouring aud the minutes of the previous
vious moottuij were read by the naerotary
and approved. Qatto a largo nudleiico
had assembled to the address by
lion. E. llsadwater , who was introduced
by the president and spoke as follows :
Mr. President , Ladies and Gentlemen :
The professional duties of an
editor of n di\ily paper nro
so pressing upon hU time
that it would bo utterly impossible
Fnr him without neglecting his buoinosa ,
to prepare a logical address , especially
during a presidential campaign. T have
come hero to-night simply to ntato my
views concerning the great problem ,
which concerns not only the city of
Omaha and Its citizens , but with which
some of the Ittrgcst cities in the union
have boon wrestling and will undoubted'
ly bo wrestling for many years
to como. The aggregation of their
sands of people in ono community
necessarily brings together elements that
are not pleased with thu execution of the
law. These ulemonls , whether they bo
naturally vicious and criminal or whether
they are drawn into the cesspool of vice
and crime from the desire of gain be
come a dangerous monaco to social or
Now , in Omaha wo have for years
striven to bring about a reform in our
municipal government , but ao far our re
forms hove been mengro and not satis
factory. Wo all know that the politician
gauges [ us conduct almost entirely to the
desire of those who have the majority of
votes at command , and as is commonly
said , the stream very seldom rices above
Ita source. Our government has been
jusb trhat v o have mndo it. It
would have been bettor if the
aggregate of our pcoplo were better.
.Now the question naturally confronts us ,
how is this condition of things to bp bet
tered. Throe years ago 1 was in Lincoln
when t : io legislature was struggling with
two problems , the ono was abso
lute prohibition of the calo of
and the other a law for regulating and
restraining the dealers , by imposing a
high lituiioe , and providing rcstiiclious
upon tlio liquor trsvllis. The latter law
was finr.lly parsed. Its adoption aroused
a storm of indignation for a time among
the liquor dealers , and the municipal
jioverni-ient seemed ballljd with the
questica as to whether or not thev could
enforce this law in the city of Omaha.
As nea. ' as 1 remember there wera at that
time 3ii9 saloons running in the city ,
each of them paying $100 a year , giving
the school fund SJIO.OCO. Our population
ot tlw time wjs between thirty and
thirty-livo thousand. After it protracted
contest the mayor and city
attoru y patched up EOIMO aort of
The law was construed moro or
leas to mil the vendors and put Into ef
fect. The result you all know. There
no doubt that it has boon beneficial in
mnro ways than one. Today with a pop
ulation of ever fifty thousand wo have
104 'saloons , Wo have therefore , un
doubtedly cut down the number of the
saloons at least 50 per cent , perhaps more ,
hocuinc had the increase of the nalooni ;
kept pace with the increase uf popula
tion wo would certainly to-day have 230
saloons. So far no good. The school
fund , instead of baing endowed hilh only
§ 115,000 , la now receiving over § 100,000
per am.urn , and for tlmt wo feel grateful.
But thi ro is another side to this ques
tion. When this luw was enacted the
main c' j ° ct was to decrease ) the number
of talooiui and increase Iho
respectability of the vondora. However
you may view this question , those who
and 1 am ono of these , believe that the
main object of the high licouse law , at
least for this city , vraj to close up the
dives und denn and conliuo the tnitlic to
n ehss of dealers who would conform
f.i the spirit ' of Iho law.
Hut w at has boon the result ? lastead
ot closing thy low dives we otill have a
great uuiiibar in full blast. Thone certain
ly could bo clodisd by the municipal au
thorities if they were disposed to take the
tight course to closu them. The inter-
prolation put down by the law in the bj-
ginning was that the mayor and licensing
board were ol > 'i.ated ; to laauo a license to
uvory applicant upon the payment of the
§ 1,000. I have always main
tained from the outset that
the board waa clothed with the power - a
or to reject every application which wao
not in accordance with the letter of the
law. The luw provides that
NO UOi'.N : < i :
shall bo granted to uny person who keeps [
a disorderly house or who has boon con
victed of keeping a diaurdorlv hoiiio. JFy
opinion in that vioy would bo nuatnintd
by the boat legal authority. The board
is in duty bound t' > exorcise that discre
tion to ascertain through the police
whether the applicant kui-pn an orderly
house and in every canowhuro it is known
that thu pirty kot-ps a vila don it fa their
duty to refuse to grant a license.
You aek what will become of the schools
if we cut down thu revenue. 1 v/ould on-

jnonuy derived from keeping open mien

lar sentiment b not strong enough to mis-
tain it. Four weeks ago to-day I was in
the city of Laavenwortli , in the prohibi ( >
tion state of Kansas , and 1 tool ; particular
pains to inform mysulf how prohibition
worked in tint state. I vvill.od up and
down the principd streets of that city

worth has only n population < > f 30,001
and maintains leO tiMoons. Omaha vritl
her oO.OOO population can cunuiratnlatt
herself to support only 104 saloons. A vcrj
pnjuhar iinprussion prevails among sonic
of- our ponplo and amen ; ; our city ofll
ccrs that the restrictions imposed up.r (
the aalo of liquor is Bomothin ; ; unroptib
lican and especially very ropulaivo to the
Gorman-Amorioan olement. Thia is a
free country , and when a foreigner laude
on American soil ho im ' 'inc3 lie has the
inallonablo righto to soil liquor when ,
where , and hot ? ho pleases.
1 cannot compreh nd where nnd
they got this idea. 1 hara examined Iho
rccoul of liquor regulations abroad and
find that thorn ia not n country
of Kurojio or the ISritlah lalca
where the sale of liquor in not regulated
and restricted A3 a police regulation and
as 1 Icnrn the laws are rigidly enforced.
No man can soil whisky , wino or any in
toxicant in Germany , England , Franco ,
Austria , Norway , Swollen , Scotland ,
Ireland or Italy without r. proper
permit and obaurving certain rtslrlctiona ,
1 1 is only because our methods have not
always boon rational , going from ono ox-
troino to the ether , that they have prov
ed a failure. In London , for instance ,
the liquor liocmo ia leaned , not to deal
ers , but to the prc.nttecs upon which the
liquor iii sold. That is ono reform I
would like to inaugurate in Nubraska.
The place ia designate 1 and liconcoi , and
if the dealer occupying the promiaoa ,
violates the police roguhttinns the liccneo
ia tovohcd and n valuable franchise ia
lost. No liquor can again bo sold on
these promises for a fixed porlod. What
do wo find in

Von iasuo a licunao to a party , com

the liconao ouca revoked , tlio prcmisoa

The other day 1 waa iu the
police court as the 'principal wit
ness iu a case of incendiarism. The
parties accused of the crime otated under
oath th'tt at quarter r-ast four Sunday
morning they wont down Douglas street
into a saloon where they partook ot some
whisky and boor. Thence they went to
another saloon aud took more whisky
and beer. About that time the fire alarm
rang. That ovidcnco wr.t given in the
j.ohco court showing that a.i hour during
which the law foibids aaloous to bo open
either weekdays cr Sundays
these parties weto drinking liquor.
No notice was taken ot the evidence and
I presume never will bo unless complaint
ia made by a private citizan. J f the olTio
ere were watchful' ' and desirous to
enforce law , such ovidcnco brought into
court would suflico for the marshal to
enter complaint , just as ho has done
against merchants who happen to have
boxes piled on the sidewalk , in violation
of the city ordinancas. [ Loud applause. ]
for the reason that they believe
they are backed up by a largo
majority of the poopln of Omaha , and
that their conduct is approved by A ma
jority of the voters.
Until the people will in some emphatic
manner express their sentiments , either
throu , h the bjliot box or by public do-
monalration , wo c.m look fur no great
reform in our city government. Within
the last few days I had a talk with May

1 have eaid before that 1 am not ono ot
: hose that believe in puritanical laws. J
deut believe iu drawing the line co strict
ly that you leave a largo body uf the com
munity cntirnly outside of the bounds of
ho law. 1 believe in rational recreation
'or the pcoplo on Sunday afternoons.
You may not agree with mo but in al )
argo cities in this country and abroad
ho men and women who labor during
the week are ullowed to seek recreation
n the public parks aud gardens , enjoying
: ho perfumed flowers the shady trees and
; ho fresh air. But that docs not mean
which in Omaha are moro like boar gar

which nome people insist are neccsuary , J

maintain decency and order. Every wcl. '

or Scandinavian knows thr.t in Europe
where there is no puritauiam n ccrtaii :
respect is paid to
and duo rcgnrd is paid for their rights
whether ono believou or does not believe.
In these countries public resorts are
closed during the hours of divine service
and the same restriction imposed here
would not bo hardship on any body.
tUter church hctirs , the public gardens
with their magnificent prompindes are
thrown open and thronged by all classes.
Hut no rowdyism is tolerated , there ia
no drunkenness , and people only como
'or reoror.tiou , and , in frtct , very little
iquor ia consumed. Thia i.i a contrast
with our tie called gardens , where men
got beastly drunk a-id people are slugged
