Anti-Prohibition Speaker Says
It Is Not Saloon That Sends
All to Ruin.
PLAIN POINTS IN SPEECH

.... . .
To anyone who can find a refer
ence to prohibition in the Bible, Con
gressman Jacob E. Meeker of St.
Louis will give a ten-dollar bill, so
he announced to a large audience at
the Boyd theater Friday.
He had the Bible right on the stage.
He had a typewritten copy of all the
references to wines and drink in the
Bible, and he also had the ten-dollar
bill in his hand. He put the bill and
the typewritten references in the
Bible and had laid them on the table
after he had issued the challenge.
"To be sure," he said, "the Bible
is against intemperance. It is also
against gluttony. If a man dies from
drink there is a great hue and crv
about it. On the other hand if he
digs his grave with his teeth, we say,
'Whereas a wise providence has seen
fit to remove from our midst, our be
loved brother, etc.'
"That's the Iribme paid; to glut
tony." Dry Laws Futile.
Mr. Meeker touched on the impos
sibility of making Nebraska dry by
merely voting for the prohibition
"Why do VOU want to nuit hiivinff
it in retail quantities and begin buy
ing it wholesale, if you want to put
Nebraska on the water wagon?" he
askea. "When youre buying it by the
mcKci ana aime s worm, wny begin
buying it by ?5 worth, if youre
headed for the water wagon?
"Why do you talk about liquor kill
ing people, and then put a clause in
your proposed constitutional amend
ment providing that you can get this
liquor for medicine? Do you want to
am an me sick people?
"You women, look here, why are
you making some sixty-two manufac
turers of patent medicines million
aires, when their medicine contains
from 20 per cent to 60 per cent
alcohol? Why are you doing this and
complaining when dealers are selling
your husband beer with 2', per cent
alcohol? If they took the alcohol out
of these bittera and various patent
medicines you women are taking,
they couldn't force them down your
throats with i crowbar. -
"When a woman gets sick, did you
ever hear of a doctor ordering her
to cut out beer because it was mak
ing her nervous? I didn't. But you
have heard him order ber to cut out
tea and coffee, because it was mak
ing her nervous, and you have heard
him prescribe malt"
The speaker then went into the
record of fallen women, or the" women
who come before the courts in the
United States, and gave figures to
show that of all classes of women
that are brought before the courts in
the United States, 76.6 per cent were
"I'm not asking you now 'where
is your wandering boy tonight.' I'm
asking you where is your hired girl
this minute? You don't know and
you don't care. The school teachers,
the department store girls, the steno
graphers, and all other classes have
privileges this girl has not. They
can go home from the office, walk
into the front door of anyone's home,
sit down and play the piano and en
joy a social evening with the family.
But the hired girl is met at the front
door by the boss of the house, who
says, 'You get around to the back
door where you belong, and stay in
the kitchen; and go up the back stairs.
Then she is given the worst room in
the house to sleep in.
Hired Girl's Parlor
Where do these girls find their
companions? When a man conies to
call on one of them, she can enter
tain him in the kitchen. If he don't
like to sit on the wash tub he can
sit in the sink. If he don't like either,
they can go outside and walk up and
down the sidewalk. If they're tired
of that, thev can so to the dance hall.
There are those three places open
to them. While the young people
have to sit in the kitchen or go out
to the dance hall, where's the lady of
the house? She's gone to some relorm
"t tell you the treatment you're
giving your hired girl is what's driv
ing girls to ruin; and you have been
taught to think it was the saloons.
Yes, and you women thought yo
could save them by marching at the
head of a prohibition parade.
"Less than 5 per cent of the peo
ple of Nebraska have read this initia
tive amendment, and yet some have
3 one into hysterics about it. They
on't know what it contains. You're
asked to vote for i law that would
tie the hands of every hoSiest prohi
bitionist that would ever hope to see
the light of day in Nebraska.
Will Not Destroy Trade.
"I'll defy any man to read this
amendment, and then say that before
his God he believes there'll be one
bit less liquor sold in Nebraska under
this than at the present time.
"You don't see Frances Willard
quoted any more in Woman's Chris
tian Temperance union literature. For
many years she was president of the
organization Why don't you see her
quoted by them anymore? Because
before she died, when she became an
old woman, she declared that she had
been wrong during the forty years
she was preaching prohibition. She
stood up in her declining vears and
declared, 'I have discovered that men
are not poor because they drink, but
years, and it has already passed 1,509
separate laws to enforce prohibition."
The speaker was well received,
with much hand clapping, and fre
quent laughter as he cut through with
his keen witticisms, as well as sar
casm. The house was full, and a
fringe three-deep stood, around the
back of the room.
In his introduction. L. F. Crofoot,
who introduced the speaker gave some
figures of the criminal and insane
records from Kansas and Nebraska,
seeking to show that Kansas, a pro
hibition state has more of these than
Nebraska, a wet state.

He has alienated from America the good will of most .
