The only thing we require is that tho

difficulty, and thnt tho reliefs aro suffi

LIQUOR DEALER GIVES
OF "DULY" SUNDAY
Led by Curiosity to Attend
Meeting in the Taberna
cle, He Admits Evange
list's Sincerity Eccen
tricities of Temperament
Saloonkeeper Surprised to Hear
Himself Classed With Crim
inals, But Gratified by Cor
dial Reception Given Him by
Critic of His Business.
By WALTER II. PENLEY
(Siloonkcepcr and Vic President New Jersey
Inspired by curiosity. I Journeyed to
tho Sunday tabcrnncle to hear the famous
baseball evangelism prench on the ovlls
of tho liquor trnmC
I hnd henrd many discussions In my
placo of business regarding tho evangel
ist, nnd I must ndmlt thnt he was looked
upon favorably y even a number of tho
so-called drinking clnss. Others criti
cised him for attempting to corner the
money market of religion and for lnck
of sincerity. 1 myself was n trifle skep
tical In regard to tho latter.
So far as his sermon Itself was con
cerned, Sunday used nil tho nrguments
of tho temperance ndvocates slnco the
tlmo of Adam, with llttlo attention, hero
nnd there. Ills statistics would do credit
to a Hobson, nnd when he saw thnt
these wero getting monotonous ho skil
fully Injected a. llttlo humor, which
brought forth ripples of laughter,
Ab tho largo crowd filed out of the
building nfter tho services It was evident
from some remnrks thnt many wero dis
appointed because the evangelist did not
Inject enough acrobatic stunts, for which
ho Is noted, Into his sermon,
Whllo I expected to henr tho liquor
business criticised, I wns rather sur
prised to learn thnt nil liquor dealers
are criminals nnd wondered why the Gov
ernment discriminates In Its treatment
of criminals or why It protects and
legalizes ono form of criminality nnd
punlHhes others. If what Mr. Sunday
says Is true thnt the men engaged In
tho liquor business nro criminals why
does the Government continue as partners
In this crlmlnnllty nnd receive JSoO.OOO.CO)
annually as Its share of tho receipts?
Why doesn't It close out tho business,
compensntn the criminal partners nnd dc
rlvo Its necessnry revenue from some
other source, such ns Incrcnsed rents on
real estate nnd water and additional
tariff on food products?
But I still br-'lcvo that the liquor busi
ness does not make the mnn, any more
than tho profession of theology mnkes
tho mnn. There are some ministers of
tho Gospel as well as saloonkeepers who
aro far from what they should be mor
ally. According to nn article which r
read recently, thero are more ministers
serving sentences In the prisons of Ala
bama than there nro bartenders.
After hearing his sermon, I sent Mr.
Sunday a letter requesting n personal In
terview nnd I hnd tho pleasure and honor
of meeting him. When I arrived nt his
home. I9H Spring Gnrdcn street, I wns
ushered upstairs to tho front room,
where the evangelist was resting in bed.
Ho sat up and greeted me cordlnlly, and
I must say, nfteV our little tete-a-tete,
that ho Is ono of tho finest men I have
I might also state that Mr. Sunday hns
often been misquoted by newspaper men
who trend toward scnsntlonallsm, I can
safely say that tho evangelist holds no
personal animosity against any liquor
man or anybody else for that matter
and that when ho preaches tho so-called
"booze sermons" ho attacks tho busi
ness nnd not personalities.
r was of the opinion that Mr. Sunday's
most caustic critics are thoso who hava
neither seen him jjor mot him personally.
It doesn't seem possible that anybody
who has hnd tho pleasure of meeting him
could do other than admlro him.
