low allow me a little space I will express
While Christianity, no doubt has
a very great bearing on the question,
it is, in my opinion, by no means the
greatest. When a man gets drunk
he becomes a nuisance, and the law,
1 think, says that when anything be becomes

away with. And the saloon is a
breeder of nuisances, and so should
Many drinking men when they
are intoxicated, become dangerous,

knife, will do a lot of damage. Times
without number persons have been
killed or wounded by attacks of
drunken men, and at best, they are
an insult to all law-abiding and
peace respecting persons and as the
saloons furnish the material for cre creating

ing. intoxicating. The Bible is certainly against
strong drink. "Look not on the
wine when it is red, for at the last it
biteth like a serpent and stingeth
like an adder." ..Touch not and
handle not," and a great many other
such denunciations against drinking
and drunkards. But this is not the
point. Better to argue from the
standpoint of "If eating meat mak mak-eth
eth mak-eth my brother to stumble, I will
eat no meat," and no one can deny
that many whisky drinkers are men
of influence and many stumble and
follow after them into ruin.

country would be a condition so intol intolerable

the case of telephone or telegraph does
not mean transfer of messages from

a connection as will permit one person
to have the actual possession of the
particular line of communication from
one end of it to the other and this can
only be given efficiently by exchange
systems and connecting lines under a
common control; and that is what the
Bell System is.

We believe that under proper gov governmental
ernmental governmental control and regulations the
profits from promotion or operation
allowed to be distributed should not
be so large as to warrant or tempt
that utilities giving at fair rates an
efficient and sufficiently comprehensive
universal service should be subject to
limited compe-tition, not giving such
service. Competition which Ignores the
ogligatlon to furnish a complete and
comprehensive service is not compe competition,
tition, competition, is not for the benefit of the
public in that it does not reach the
whole public interested.
If, therefore, complete duplication,
with its dual exchange connection and
dual bills for service, is a prerequisite
to complete competition, government
control and regulation cannot go hand
in hand with competition.
We believe that the record of the
Bell System will be accepted by the
public as fully in accord with these
declarations. Consistent adherence to
this policy has given the public of the
United States the best, most compre comprehensive
hensive comprehensive and cheapest telephone service
in the world and made the Bell stand standards
ards standards the standards of all nations.
To remove any possible excuse for
misapprehension on account of the
many misleading statements which
have been circulated as to, hte .alleged
unnecessary and overcapitalization
and excessive charges of the Bell Sys System,

"Very well, do as you please, of

The girl was ready for this.
"I am sorry, but I cannot give you
any. I have lived only in one house,
where I had entire charge of the table
and dining room, and that home was
broken up when the people went
abroad three years ago. I could show

hawk, then raising her voice, although
it was utterly unnecessary: "Ladies,

Do any of you want to venture?" The
contemptuous laugh that followed had
the effect of a warning to every wom woman

thief, you know, and then really, she
doesn't look as if she was used o

stylish-looking girl. No self-respecting
waitress nowadays would go out in the
street dressed like that."
All the eyes in the room seemed bor-
ing through the poor girl as she stood j
trembling, humiliated, her cheeks burn-
ing, while horrified tears demanded
to be let up into her eyes. She held
her dainty head proudly, and turned
away with dignity.
"However, if you care to try," called
out the hawk, "you can register at the
