good time generally. The steady down
pour of rain affected Mr. Gordon's spirits
to such an extent that he found it neces
sary toreflort to stimulants to rovive them.
After RettiiiR thoroughly wet on the in

would he an excellent idea to combine
business with pleasure and be entered a
Lackawanna nvenuo store and purchased
a small clcob.
It was of the alarm variety but Mr. Gor
don was innocent of that fact nutil he
reached the street when the alarm began
to ring. Filled with terror at the uncanny
noise that proceeded from his parcel he
dashed the clock to the sidewalk and
jumped npon it again and again to drive
onl the evil spirits he was convinced in
When the time piece had been demolish

taken into custody by a police officer. He
expressed a desire to treat the officer as hn

Fuller in police court sentenced him to

THE VICTORVJNJORFOLK. VA.
It Inspired tho Speaker with Great
Hopes for the Future of the Pro
hibition Party He Offered Ten Dol
lars to Anyone Who Can Tell Him
the Political Difference Between
Democrats and Republicans.
It is seldom that such a large nnd
cultured andienee assemblies in this
city to hear a leetnre as was present at
the Frothinghnm last evening to hear
Professor Samuel Dickie, the national
chairman of the Prohibition party,
talk on "Obstacles to Political R
form." The speaker waB escorted to
the platform by Attorney W. W.
Lathrope, who ha i been selected by
the Central Prohibition league to pre
side. The appearance of the gentle
men was the signal for a hearty burst
of applause. Mr. Luthrope in intro
ducing tho speaker thanked tho audi
ence for their presence on such a dis
Mr. Dickb began by saying he would
read a telegram handed to him after
his arrival in this city. The telegram
is tis follows:
Norfolk, Ya., May 25, 1894.
Samuel Dickie, BorantOQ, Pa.:
Entire city government Prohibition.
Clean sweep. Straight party ticket. Old
Virginia puces first municipal jewel in
the ciown of national Prohibition. It is a
gilt from God. W. fl. Gmus,
FIRST NEWS FROM SKAT OF WAR.
The speaker said that ho was on his
way west from the exciting c:unp.iign
in the city of Norfolk, and this tele
gram was the first news he had re
ceived from the seat of war. There
were only two tickots in the field tho
straight Democratic and the straight
Prohibition ticket, and tho Prohibition
ticket had won,
After Bhowing Jtlio dangers of the
municipal corruption that he said pre
vail in most of the larger cities of this
nation. He returned again to Norfolk,
and said thnt city bad many npparent
p isms of virtue, and the officer,) of the
law would go forth on Snndiy morn
ing and in the majesty of
their official power ehsrge on
the soda water fountain (laughter),
on the barber shops and tbe milk
dealerB, bnt all this time nearly 1110 sa
loons were permitted to carry on their
nefarious trafllj in defiance of all law.
But the soLi waUr men did not have
a "pull" in politics. And though the
barbers occasionally have a rather se
vere "pull," they had no "pull" in pol
itics. Continuing he said:
What do our largo cities need tho moit
today? Better mayoral probably so. Bet
ter police officers? very likely. But What
is most needed is municipal officers who
shall be held accountable to a better polit
ical party. I am ncqunintud with tho
mayor of Norfolk,nud though ho is no arch
angel, an.l bus never made any effort to
enforce the liquor law, yet I can
safely say that if the same gentleman
luiil been elected by the Prohibition pnrty,
that the law would b thoroughly en
forced, for the reason that most mayors
are auxioui to ba re-elected, and if he
were held respon.-ible to a bt'.tor party ho
would see to it that the municipal and
liquor laws would bo most rigidly en
forced. AOAINBT (IUERILLA WARFARE.
The Prohibition party does not beliovo in
this guerilla war-fare of now supporting a
"good" Republican iu order to defoat a
"bad" Democrnt or vice versa. The liquor
men could cross party linos :i- well in tho
b.itter elements, and a good deal more
prompt, for the baser elements of our
population are much more easily "influen
ced" than the more decent part.
After discussing the immigration
question, he turned bia attention to
trusts and monopolies. He said there
wnB great danger in this concentrating
and that something had to givo way
The speaker next took up the liquor
question, aud said that if the traffic
ilid not create any of the misery und
wretchedness for which it was respons
ible, it was yet tho most gigantic prob
lem now facing the American people,
for the traffic coats the people of the
nation over one billion and u quarter
The sponkor said that the liqnorqueg
lion was taken into politics by the
liquor dealers in 1802 when they met in
united convention on Nov. 12 of that
year in the city of New York und re
solved they would support no man or
party thnt , 'ever favored total abitin
eucc, much less prohibition. Be
followed the history of the powor
of the saloon in politics from
that lime up to this, and referred to
campaign iu Ohio, Michigan and Penn
sylvania, He said that he would ven
ture the statement that no man could
be elected into office iu this city whose
record was known to be antagonistic to
CRITICISED SALOON SUPPORTERS.
He criticised severly clergymen nnd
Christian people who supported the
ealoons by their votes. He said
that a minister who votes tbe Republi
can or Democratic ticket did more to
perpetuate the liquor traflio than any
saloon keeper in the land.
Tho speaker offered $10 to anyone
who could tell him the political differ
ence between a Republican or a Demo
crat. What did a man havo to believe
in in order to be a Democrat or Repub
lican? In 1602 the Democrats swept
this nation on nn anti-McKiuley bill
platform, but even yet tho AicKinley
bill is doing business at the old stand.
The fact is that the two old parties at
Washington are trying to get into the
