speeches, but 1 do not believe that as an
American citizen thut dullars are the

Money in the Uuostiou.
"There Is more money in this question
for the baker, the butcher, tilt drv
goods man, etc. It must be so, as a
billion and a quarter of dollars was
spent in drink in the United States
during the JiiHt year alone. What la

size of our problem you cannot see it

Brewers and distillers, although gath
ering all this wealth, are not wealth
producing. A pickpocket robs tho
pockets of people and crackB safes, but
he is not an industry, anil the same can
be said of the saloons; they take money
from their victims and give nothing of
value in return, and this is the worst
species of fraud.
"Oive us prohibition and let the
money spent ln drink be spent ln the
dry goods store for organs, etc., and it
will create employment for labor for
every individual out of a job in the
United States. The question Is large
socially, morally and financially.
It Is a Political Question.
"Is it of a political character? Can it
be solved In any other way? In 1862 It
was found in politics, when the liquor
men who have no patriotism decided to
oppose all parties and candidates
pledged to total abstinence. It is a po
litical question innsmucn as we need
ofllcers who are In sympathy with the
law and are in favor of carrying out
the law. You give Us prohibition and
a party to back us up and prohibition

"Would to God that the churches
were as sensitive to their rlghtH as the
stloon keepers are to their preroga

to say that the vast majority of my fel
low church ment go to the ballot box
and record their assent that the
saloons shalll continue."
Professor Dickie concluded his lec
ture with an earnest exhortation to
Christian members to carry out their
duties upon the temperance question.
Celebration Was a Success.
The Baptist celebration services have
been a success ln many respects. In
the first, and most important, aspect
they have been the means of Increas
ing more firmly than ever the definite
and broad doctrines of the church. Thfe
address of the Kev. George C. Lorlmer,
of Boston, on Wednesday evening was
ampie recompense ror the labor and ex
pense involved in promoting the er-
vices. Mr. Lorlmer was perfect in the
enunciation of the live articles of faith.
wnicn were inciuueu ln thn report of his
address in yesterday's Tribune. The
address in this respect was broad ln
its views and could not by any means
offend the sensitive ear of any member
of the Christian community. His de
scription of the attempts of early Bap
tists to set up "more government was
humorous, but the logic was crushing
and demonstrated, with the greatest
lucidity, the utter absurdity of de
parting from well established rules and

AFTER TIIE CENTENNIAL.
Review of the Results of tho llnptist An-
nlvcrsury-.Many of the DlstinguMiud
Visitors lluvo Left for Their Homes.
The majority of the large number of
ministers and prominent laymen who
attended the Baptist centennial ser-
Ices have returned to their respective
homes. Rev. Dr. George C. Lorlmer,
D., who, during his stay in the city,
was the guest of nev. warren u.
Partridge, returned to Boston, by the
midnight train Wednesday. Rev. Dr.
W. P. Hcllings, of Omaha, Neb., has",
however, been Induced to remain over
another Sunday, and will attract large
audiences at the Ponn Avenue church
next Sunday morning and evening.
To a Tribune reporter Kev. Warren
O. Partridge spoke as follows concern
ing the recent centennial anniversary:
i believe that the heimllts of the Bap
tist anniversary Just held in this city
are beyond calculation. It Is of In
estimable value to study history, and
especially the history of the nineteenth
century. Biography is history, teach
ing, by example, and it is an inspiration
for this generation to study the sturdy
characters and achievements of such
heroic men of the past as Rev. William
Bishop and Elder Mott. Such a cele
bration also cultivates esprit de corps
in a denomination. It gives breadth
and comprehensiveness to the religious
bodies; it is well to rise ln thought ana
sympathy ubove the Individual local
church and contemplate the brond
sweeo of a denomination s life having
a membership in the United States of
over 3,ti00,o00 communicants.
'It has also stimulated a love for
rellglouB liberty, and the distinctive
principles for which we stand. Our
Deoule must nave ueon prouu to nave
been called Baptists when they listened
to the scholarly, eloquent, progressive,
tolerant and liberal addresses of such
pulpit orators as Rev. Dr. Judson, of
Now York, and Dr. Lorlmer, of Boston."
