The tabernacle was packed
jammed and crammed with a crowd
of men estimated at 12,000 by
shortly after 1 o'clock, thou'gh the
meeting wasn't scheduled to start
until 2. Thousands were unable to
get In. The afternoon audience be-
gan Binging as the morning audl-iof
ence came out.
As It was Impossible for more to
get In, "Billy" didn't keep them wait
ing, but started on his ninety-minute
sermon at 1:30.
The sermon bristled with facts and
figures that fairly stagger and appall
the hearer as he Is brought to realise
what could be done with the money
fpent annually In thl4 country for liquor.
One of the moat striking- atatemente of
the evangelist was that this money would

such highways, each sixteen feet wide.

sentence a battering ram against the -

roused to more than mere applause, and
cheer after cheer swept from one end of
the tabernacle to the other and back

Seated at the rear of "BlllyVpIatform
were abou ttwenty boys. "Billy," after
describing the raw materials and the
finished product of sawmills, flour mills
and grist mills came to the "gin mill."
At this point the boys stood up on the
platform and "Billy" stood on a chair
and, with a wave of his hand
at the '
youths, he cried: "This t the raw ma
terial of tho gin mill." and then de
scribed with wealth of adjectives the
awful product of the mill.
Another climatic moment was marked
by his sieging a large American flag and
waxing it. He kept this George M.
Cohan property on the pulpit and made
freiuent use of it during the rest of the
rmon. Near the close he put tha flae
over his shoulder and, followed by an
imaginary hand of reformed drunkards,
he marched off to an imaginary grocery
More, butcher shop and dry goods store. '
His march in that direction continued
from the platform along the press desks

:radeamen the reformed drunkard had
imaginary conversations, the tradesmen

ARBITRATION OUESTION IS UP
NEW YORK, Oct, 3. Danger of
an lcixned late, break between the
United States and Germany over the
.torpedoing of the Arabic, with the
loss, of two American. lives, has been
averted by the assurances contained
in a note received personally here to
day by Secretary Lansing from Count
von Bernstorff, the German ambassa

Neither the secretary of otate nor
the German ambassador would make
The ambassador was with Secre-
tary Lansing only a few minutes,
during which the latter did not ex-
press any view on the note, assuring
Count von Bernstorff he would notify

1 "What Inference la.
There was nothing to indicate that the
BeT German note met ent"ly the vlew-
point of the United States, but inasmuch
oa the American government made It
clear to Count von Bernstorff informally,
that disavowal that the sinking of tha
Arabic was absolutely necessary before
there could be any further negotiation
Aw .rV,lmM..n . v. a . l
nity. the general Inference waa that the
Berlin foreign office had taken the view
that the German .ubmarlnd commander
must have erred In assuming that the
Arabic was Intentionally hostile when
going to the rescue of the British steamer
H waa pointed out as significant In
German quarter that when the German
government sent its first not on the
Arabic, olfering to arbitrate the question
of tact In the case, the evidence collected
by the American government waa not be
fore it. Since that time the data care
fully obtained by the United States and
held by the Washington government to
ba absolutely conclusive thst the Arabic
w" not attempting; to ram the German
submarine, has been placed before the
Berlin foreign office.
Q ii vat Inn of Arbitration.
The prevalent view tonight waa that
Germany had admitted the error of Its
submarine commander, but wished to
arbitrate the extent to which Germany
waa liable under tha circumstance for
I a mistake. Whether this would ba satis-

made plain that tha principle Involved
would not be made tha subject of dis

Russia has been relieved, t Some ex

troop to meet the offensive lit the west
and to supply a contingent for the enter
