Rejoinder fron Mr. Meyer.
OMAHA, Jan. 6.-T0 the Editor of The
Bee: Tour kind publication of my letter
to Rev. John Williams has brought forth
his answer, to which I again request per
mission to reply In your columns.
I find that his views and mine are not so
very far apart, but I am obliged to point
out where he Is mistaken.
He courteously agrees to accept my
statement that C. E. Fields Is not acting
for majority of Omaha liquor dealers,
but 1 wish to still further convince him by
stating that Mr. Fields Is the editor of
the official organ of the Nebraska Retail
Liquor Dealers' association, a state or
ganization, and that he haa nothing to do
whatever with any local or Omaha associa
tion. Of the 250 Omaha retail liquor deal
era, only twelve belong to the state asso
ciation, of which Fields Is also the secre
tary. This state organization was organized
for mutual protection, largely for the pur
pose of contesting damage suits brought
under the Slocymb law, many of which
are in the nature of blackmail.
I repeat that only 6 per cent of the
Omaha liquor dealers belong to the state
association, within which Fields wields his
There Is also an Omaha organization, en
tirely separate and distinct from the state
association, and In this Omaha organization
Fields haa no Influence whatever, and I am
informed that few. if any, of the members
of the Omaha organization are In favor of
his action.
Now, Mr. Williams intimates that 1n one
of my arguments I was hiding behind
former Mayor Moores. In this he Is griev
ously mistaken. I mentioned Mayor
Moorea' administration merely as an Inci
dent and as a better Illustration of the
relations of the retail dealer with the
officials charged with tbe execution of the
Slocumb law.
Mr. Williams says that the saloon men
elected Mayor Moores because they wanted
Just such an administration as he gave to
the people of Omaha. I think that you
know more about local politics than either
Mr. Williams or myself and will understand
that he Is not well Informed. The saloon
men, their employes and friends, and the
employes of all the brewing and liquor In
terests In this city will not constitute one-twenty-fifth
of the city's vote.
I believe today that Mr. Benson would
have been elected mayor of Omaha If It
bad not been for such Intemperate cam
paign arguments, as, for Instance, that
"his opponent's main support was coming
from gamblers, thieves and thugs." I well
remember the pertinent comment made
thereof at the time in one of the papers,
"that there must have been several hun
dred outlaws residing la Mr. Benson's im
mediate neighborhood,'.'-, Tbe action of the
Civic Federation to large extent la In the
nature of retaliation for the defeat of
There Is one more thing I want to say,
nd that concerns a statement made by-
Elmer Thomas. He writes that It Is not
his wish to bring about prohibition or stop
drinking, but that he Is aiming only at
the saloon. Don't trust him; all his agita
tion Is designedly for eventual prohibition;
an anti-saloon argument la a prohibition
argument In principle and In practice. Gen
erally speaking, the man who advocates the
abolition of the saloon and In the same
breath avows his opposition to prohibition
la a fraud, and the man who believes him
Is a fool.
I wish to say also that I am making
this argument from an entirely personal
standpoint. I fully understand and appre
ciate the difference between licentiousness
and personal liberty, and I am aa much
opposed to the former as Mr. Williams
or anyone else, but I sm for the preserva
tion of personal liberties Just the same.
I would make the liquor business aa re
spectable as every other trade, which Is
merely a question of the honest and In
telllgent administration of a good law.
I regret that Mr. w imams ignored my
reference to the screens. A. L. MEYER.
Elder C'hrlstlaa Opposed to Closing
on Sondar ( nless Other
Days Also.
"Sunday Laws" was the subject of the
discourse by Elder L. H. Christian In the
Seventh I'ay Adventist church Sunday,
and It waa more In the form of a lecture
than a regular sermon. He answered the
three questions, which had previously been
1. Should saloons be closed on Sunday?
1 Are these modern Sunday laws a true
3. Are these modern Sunday laws a kind
of priestcraft?
Elder Christian said, In answer to the
first question, saloons should be closed on
Sunday, provided they were closed dur
ing the remainder of the week; but, on the
other land, he would answer "no," If it
was the Intention to close only on Blin
dly and not on the other days. In ex
planation, be argued that if It was so
popular and o easy to close the saloons
one day In the week, he believed they
could be closed every day In the week.
To saloons being closed only on Sundays,
the speaker said he was opposed, because
it simply transferred the saloon to the
homes, where carousing was often car
ried on In the presence of children and
agalnBt the wishes of wives and mothers
and thus making matters worse Instead
of better.
Regarding the second question the
speaker answered "no." He went Into de
tail on the subject of Sunday laws to show
that these laws of man were against the
laws of God. In Matthew xxvlliil, "In the
end of the Fabbath, aa It began to dawn
toward the first day of the week."
"Therefore,'' he said, "the Sabbath being
passed, when the first day of the week,
commonly called Sunday, comes It is clear
that the preceding day. or Saturday, la
the Sabbath and Sunday is not."
He li.slsted these modern Sunday laws
are not a true reform, but a CatholU:
church reform.
tne x-apacy is irouu 01 tlils and re
minds us that the Bible says, keep the
Seventh day. while the Pope says, Wfep
the First day, and the people obey the
Pope. The Catholic priests are back of the
Sunday closing.
"This la a tx-ginning of a union of church
and state movement, which always ends
in relliglous persecution, these Sunday
laas and prk-st craft, and the people
should not advocate them."

Michael Swift, f;ighteenth and Grace
streets, guarded the tornerstore of St.
Phllomena s cathedral all night June 2, IW,
and then stayed at his post all the next
day until many thousands of pounds of
brick and stone had 'been placed on top
of the hollow stone. ,
But now the corner alone cannot be
found. Many Omahans saw It placed In
the walls of the cathedral and have looked
on the ruins during the last ten days. They
declare the contractor who Is wrecking the
church should have found the stone In the
northeast corner of the walls so mo three
feet abovn the ground. As the lots on
which tne cathedral stood were cut down
some after the building was erected the
stone would have been even higher from
the ground than when It was placed in the
walls of the cathedral.
Among the Omahans wh,cv remember the
stone are Michael and Thomas Swift. Jerry
Mahoney, John Rush, Andrew Murphy and
Patrick McArdle who lives In the country
just out of Omaha.
John Rush,' federal bank examiner, said:
"I was twenty-two years of nge when th
stone was laid. I remember the day well,
people came down Harney street and as
sembled about the northeaat corner of the
church, where I believe the stone waa laid.
I saw the stone It was native limestone
and not very large. There was no Inscrip
tion on the outside. Tho few coins and
records placed In the stone were ftrs put
In a small tin cash box. The stone was
placed Just above the waterllne, some two
or three feet from tl ground."
Mr. Rush said ho saw the ruins of the
cathedral a few days ago. From the best
he can remember, the Incident of forty
years ago when the rube was put In place,
It should have been found. "It Is possible
some one has taken It and Is holding
the stone and contents with the hope of se
curing something for them some day," said
Mr. Rush. "The coins placed In the cor
nerstone were of nominal value, but the
hope of securing something for the records
might led some one to take the stone. It
was small. A man could take it away In
wheelbarrow, contents and all."
Thomas Bwlft said he remembered the
stone distinctly and that It waa placed In
the northeast corner of the cathedral walls
some two or three feet from the ground
It was about a foot square and the hol
low space was small according to Mr.
Swift. He said his brother Michael Bwlft
waa detailed to watch the atone and did
watch it all night of June 2. 1907, and all
the next day.
Nature has Instilled In man an appetite
for a stimulant. Since the beginning of
time man haa used some kind of stimulat
ing beverage. Today we use coffee, tea,
beer and ardent spirits. From every rea
sonable standpoint there Is no denying the
fa.ct that pure beer is the most desirable
of all. It Is the only beverage .that has
food value and that contains such a small
amount of alcohol as to mako It herprui
Instead of Ungeroua to the human system.
Thinking people are beginning to advocate
more liberal laws governing the sale of
beer as being the only solution of the tem
perance question. Good beer (Stors Rlue
Ribbon Beer) Is a better stimu'atlng bever
age than tea or coffee. Its rioderate use
will assist instead of hindering you in
building up a robust constitution.

After scratching the face of Mrs. J. Bios
burg. Ill North Twentieth street, and
throwing a hatchet et her own sister, Mrs.
Joe Flatau declared with emotion In Juvenile
court Monday that she would kill herself.
The cause of the excitement waa little Cecil
vessenter. Mrs. Flatau's sister. Mrs. Fla
tau sent her sister $75 to bring her from
Russia to America, but after the girl ar
rived she could not get along with Mrs
Flatau and she went to live with Mrs. Slos-
burg. Mrs. Flatau demanded the money
she had spent for the passage and Insisted
that her sister come back home. Several
days ago sho went to Mrs. Slosburg's home
and an altercation took place. She was
still laboring under considerable excitement
Monday, when she was before the Juvenile
court, and it required all the efforts Rabbi
Cohn and Probation Officer Bernstein could
exert to quiet her.
The girl will remain witli Mrs Slosburg
until word can be received from her parent
In Russia.
