Sentiment against the liquor traffic
and the saloons found expression at
two big metings in the city yester
day. Both were attended by many
hundreds of people.
A protest: against the application of
Teaae Marcus lor a wholesale liquor
license at 1103 North Third street
drew a large audience to the First
United Brethren Church, Boa* and
Myrtle streets. The Rev. John W.
Mlnges told of the effects of "Booz.e"
in a sermon to hundreds who packed
Chestnut street hall.
Speakers at the mass meeting in the
First United Brethren Church heard of
the evils of the liquor traffic. They
said petitions would be circulated
among residents of the West End this
week so that a monster remonstrance
can be filed against the license. Last
year Marcus withdrew.
The Rev. John H. Daugherty, pas
tor of Ridge Avenue Methodist.
Episcopal Church, presided and ex
plained the situation. Dr. R. E.
Prugh, chairman of the State Prohibi
tion committee, spoke on the national
aspect of the liuor problem.

Two thousand people, mostly men,
voted to support Congressman Hob

of the liquor traffic at the close of the
monster meeting in Chestnut street.
Members of the W. <\ T. C. who took
a similar action some weeks ago. were

leader of the Democratic party he was

things on which the party had made
up its mind.
"We don't want you to break with
your party, but we would like you to

Evans, of Boston, after the President
had finished speaking.
"Tt isn't a question of breaking, with
the party," returned the President, "it
is a question of speaking for it."
"Well, why not weak to it?" re
joined Mrs. Evans as the women
laughed. "That's what we want. You
have such tremendous power and can
work miracles with it."

JACOB HUMMEL CAUGHT HIS GROUNDHOGSIIIP
Of course everybody knows tne groundhog saw his shadow to-day.
But, perhaps, you didn't know he saw his finish. Well, he did and now
maybe old Mr. Winter won't stick around six more weeks after ail.
According to the old superstition if the groundhog sees his shadow
and runs back into his hole six weeks of blustery weather will follow. So
this morning Jacob Hummel, who li\es about a half mile north of the city
limits, decided to fool winter by pre venting the groundhog from running
back into the hole. Mr. Hummel happened to know where the city's offi
cial weather prognosticator had his house and lot, atid early this morning
he waited for him to stick liis nose out into the bright sunshine. Sure
enough, he came out, blinked around, and then—SAW It. But he didn't
scamper back for Mr. Hummel nabbed him. Later he brought him into
