Air. I'.M\ton , tiio Kjieakor ot _ thu evening.
Mr PHI ton , alter thawing the people
for their attendance , Haid that the ques
tion to bo dccjdtd ivus whether or not
lawless citizens should bu allowed to
rule the eity , whether or not fathers had
n right to protect their soi s , whether or
not inolhors cu.n guard their daughters
lie characterised tin ; rum as be
ing this great promoter ot lawlessness ,
and Hiiidtlmt the only way to gain the
upper hand of it wan for thu people to as
sert their rights. Kighttenths of the
nion of .Oinuliu . pretend to bu respectable ,
.11. d In Hid city there is strength and
manhood enough to o\ercomi ) the in-
l.uenoo of the lawless clement. "Hut , "
said the speaker , "look at the situation of
affairs. 'I ho good men of the eity oe-
oiipy the Imi'k Heats and mourn and weep
over the lawlcs-ness existing .The rabble
are jo HC | Irotit scutu ami hold the con

would jw-ijorl their rights , they .voulil soon

The speaker said he had not come to
Omhlm With simply gu > h and words , but
with fuels whieh proved eonelu-
sively that good eouKl be ac
complished by the league. The lirst
Gill/ens' league for the enlorcom 'lit ol
laws regarding the liquor traltie was or
ganized in the city of Chicago on the 'Will
day of November 1 * 77. The specific ob
ject , of the association was , and is still ,
to suppress the sile of liquor to minors ,
and to save the joitth ol Chicago from
habits ot dissipation and vice. Its plan
of 01 oration was the combination ol all
goof ) citi/.oiis , h'ltvprethe ol party -illili-
at-jo'ns or'i'cligiiius cict ds , into a .strong
and ! ' vigorous organi/.atioii for the cu-
foreemenl ot the l.iws regulating the
liqijor trujlle. The -uee-'ssof the league
lias'ljoen ifot only but absolutely
wonderful.Vhun the Citi/.un-i1 league
of Chirano was organi'/ed , thingswere in
a most deplor.iblo condit'ou ; the liquor
trailio wim practioally imru lr.iiued ; the
laws were openly di.d pcrsisfi'iitlv violated
lated ; .juvonilo erinie was fearttill.y on
" , and good ciii/ons felt ilieni-
selves helpless ami hopeless. In Chicago ,
in 1H70,11,0'JS minors were arrested ; the
next year Iho numbers were ti.tflti , an in-
crciM > of 7iU ; and that was about the an
nual increase- the arrests of minors lie-
fore the league was formed. Out ol the
inobttwh'cli paraded the streets at that
time , onij-half were boys boy.s who were
under thi ) ' influence ot drink. The sta
tistics of'thij police courts showed a sad
condition among them. There they were
brought in by the score , uriested for
being drunk. Wo found there tluiti,0M : ( ) (
boys in Chicago wens being brought
up , in saloons. While the Christian
men were picking up one man from the
gnttor ahd lumping him to regain his lost
manhood'two1 ' me'n were being ( rained to
the gutters' i-They found that thu only
Way-to uiu the evil was to begin at the
root ! ilnd Hum cut oil' the .source of sup
ply.In / Ihu year 1.S7H , the lirst year of
the league's ' work , the numbers arrested
w > ro fi00 | , showing an actual decrease
of 1118 trom the year before. This gave
great encouragement and inspiration to
the friemlfi of the league. Since that
time thcnriwciucnt hati been a continual
fciiecOHS. Ipuring 18 $ ! the arrests of boys
nnd girls were 1,00,2 le s than the year
before. The sale of distilled liquor's or
Ixjor to spfiill boys across the bars in the
miloons fias heen wholly suppressed , and
thu saloito large boys and g rls has been
greatly reduced. The saloon keepers ,
Irom being insolent , arrogant and deli-
ant , have been humbled and subdued ,
and made to respect the law. Indeed ,
Hiich has been the iinprcon ! made upon
them that Ihey have , in their associa
tions , passed resolutions that they will
admit , no saloon keeper to membership
unless he will sign a pledge not to sell
liquor to minors or drunkards ,
lint thi ) most gralilying result of all
himbcoii'lho leoling ol eoulidctiee ami
bopefnliiess which has been iiiHiured in
thu iuinls of respectable eiti/.ens a feel
ing that-ljie liquor power is not invinc
ible ; that'll can bo controlled , and that
those engaged in It can , -md must bo ,
made to icspcct and obey the law.
Outside of Chicago , in numerous in.
Htaneos where cltl/cin' leagues have been
orgunimyd , success has been even more
rumarkblo. : | In Aurora thu number of
| Haloons was reduced from 3i to 17 ; the
* beergunh us Were cloxed up ; minor- , and
„ drunkards were driven from the saloons ,
I und ' ( ) iu saloons were all closed on Sun
day.In Joliet the license was raised to
$1,00 : ) , and the number of saloons re
duced fioni liJ ( to iSiii the Halo to minors
and drunkards and Sunday liquor Helling
have been almost entirely biipprcsscil ,
and thu press says that the whole
appearance of the town has been
changed ,
The , great quastlon to bo considered ,
continued the speaker. Is , can the sup
pression of thu sale of liquor to minors
bo accomplished in Omaha. That was
Uio question in Chicago before the
eitl/ens" " league was organized. Tlio not go to Ihu saloons on account
of the liquor to be had there. They no
for the Dailies , the good companionship ,
the bright lights. The speaker told
bow Iliikur * minis , a saloon keeper ,
And induced Iho boys on
their way hoiuu from -Sunday school to
enter his saloon and play pool. They
became drunk and were arrested. When
they were released they went to the Citi-
ZOII'N league and made a complaint
against the saloonkeeper. Hakcr Hums
was tried and bis conviction followed It
was the llrt.1 victory for thu league , and
nftorthd second conviction thu sulonn-
kuopera.wcro ready to tall at their fuel.

The trial of C. S. llig ins for keeping

Wille , S. A. Orchard , .Stephen Robiiisoa
and ( Jeorge L. Dennis ,
A.s in the Hornborger CUKO , the counsel
for Mr. lliggins announced that they
would endeavor to show that there was
an understanding between the defen
dant and the marshal am ) the members
ol the police committee of the city coun
cil , whereby he wonhl be allowed to run
his saloon after midnight. Another point
which .they cxpeeted to _ prove was that
the pro-edition was incited by personal
spile on the p irt of the eity marshal , who
hud conspired with others to ruin Mr.
Two > oung men wore called as wit- for the pro ° ccution , who testified
to liuvin" purohas'ed both \\hisky and
beer at lliggins' saloon between i and 2
o'clock of October It ) . Hoth wen * sub
mitted to a ngid cross-examination by
Attorney ( loodwin , and in .spite of the
objections of the counsel for the oily ,
which were sustained by Judge Stenbnr'g ,
the information was elicited that they
were employed Roundsman Mutxu to
purchase theiliquor. . Mut/u. was then

jected , and after a heated argument , P.
O. Hawes submitted an allidavit setting
forth that their witness wu : > unexpectedly
absent from the eity and could not be
.summoned before 'Ihuixlay. This affi
davit was overruled by the court. Mr.
lliggins then submitted an allidavit stat
ing that the witness wanted was Marshal
Cumming * , who is out of the city on u
hunting expedition. The allidavit also
asserted that the marshal waa a material
witness , and tluit this dotense expected to
prove by him thut the complaint made
y him against the defendant was for the
purpose of malicious persecution and
with the intent of driving him out of
A lively'time ensued between the op

In the spring ol > I8.1./J'oin Hoytl was
cooking at a rtiuch in this region. The
ranch house was n temporary all'air ,
being merely two canvas tents , sullicient
"belter to last through the spring lound
up. There were a do/en berdoia in the
crowd and one of theac , James Rogers ,
was accompanied by his sister. As Hoyd
and the young woman were left alone to
gether during the day at camp , ho was
emboldened to make improper advances
to her. These she resented and at once in
formed her brother uuoii his return , and
he witli true fraternal indignation pro
ceeded , in the presence of the assembled
crowd , to administer : i sound thrashing
to the inbiilting cook. IJo.yd , smarting
with pain and crazed with rage , bided
his time and that night emptied three
chambers of his six-shooter into Rogers'
body as bo slept. The fehots awakened
the cowboys , but Hoyd Inul prepared one
ot the horses for ready mounting and the
Unto required in unpickcting and sad
dling the animals delayed pursuit. The
herders , however , gave clm-o. Hy day
light a hot ride of fitly miles brought
Hoyd to a large ranch when his jaded
horao fell under him. The pursuers wore
in sight behind and knowing that capture
in their hand ? meant death ho ran into
the barn , barred the doors and climbed
into the loft. As the cowboys dashed up
he saluted them with wiveral &lioU to let
them know he was there. AH no way pre
sented it.-oll of dislodging him , they sent
to tlio county seat lor I he sheriff and
camped on the trail to _ prevent Ho.vd's
escape. The official arrived shortly with
a largo pp Ru and by a stealthy move
ment gained a sheltered corner of the
barn where ho ordered Hoyd to sur
render. Hoyd shouted back that ho
would comb down if thu promise was
given that ho would not bo lynched.
Aller a parley the promi-e was given and
lloyd _ stepped down to the door , tos-od
out bis weapons and belt and surren
dered. A snowstorm hud set in and as
night approached , increased in violence.
When the sherilV'H puny started out lor
the town , about tun miles distant , a Mi/-
/tin ! was howlinir over the plains. In the
darkness and contusion of the tempest
and blinding snow Hoyd jumped Irom
his lior-u led between two ol his captors ,
and easily escaped. Alter n night ol ter
rible siili'eriug , wandering in thu snow
he reached the railroad and by carelul
work reached Kansas City and siibse-
quenll Omaha.

the endorsement ol all citizens of Omaha

much i.s being done to advc/lisc Omaha
