We stand for the abolition of the liquor traffic.
On this issue we fight.



WHENEVER A POLITICIAN OR AN EXECUTIVE
OFFICER, OR A POLITICAL PARTY PREFERS THE
LIQUOR TRAFFIC ABOVE THE PUBLIC MORALS,
SUCH MEN MUST BE SET ASIDE AND SUCH
PARTIES ABANDONED. TO THE ACCOMPLISH-
MENT OF THIS HIGH PURPOSE WE DEDICATE
OURSELVES.



INTRODUCTION



THE speeches contained in this volume were delivered
in the white heat of the great campaign of the Fly-
ing Squadron of America a campaign which touched
two hundred and fifty-five cities, embracing every capital
city, every large city, and every educational center.

They came from the lips of men and women who had
resolved in their hearts that the American people should
hear their messages, without regard to the cost to the
speakers in time, effort or money.

The campaign began on Wednesday, September 30, 1914,
at Peoria, Illinois, and closed at Atlantic City, N. J., on
Sunday, June 6, 1915, two hundred and thirty-five days of
actual speaking and traveling, without a date or place being
missed.

The Squadron consisted of three groups of speakers,
singers and musicians, who visited each city on successive
days ; thus on any day three cities heard the messages at
the same time.

Two meetings were held each day, afternoon and even-
ing. Occasionally two cities were visited by each group in
a day, which made it possible for speakers to reach two
hundred and fifty-five cities in two hundred and thirty-
five days.

These addresses were heard by a million people.

Since time began, there has been no campaign like it.
The Nation was turned into a great university as this
movable faculty went from place to place instructing the
people as to the facts and principles by which the problem
of the liquor traffic is to be solved.

The reader will note that these addresses do not smell
of midnight oil. They do not carry the musty odor of the
cloister. There is no effort to achieve theatrical effect.
They hit straight from the shoulder. They were delivered
by men and women who were going somewhere and knew
why and how they were going.

SPEECHES OF THE FLYING SQUADRON

He, who reads, should remember that they who spoke,
spent weary nights on trains or were called at unpleas-
antly early hours in order to get to the "next" place, for
towns and cities came thick and fast.

Speakers do not remain long at such task, unless they
come to it with the spirit of love and devotion. In such
spirit came those whose thoughts take permanent form
in the pages of this book.

Those who heard the addresses delivered will read them
with renewed interest. Those who had not that pleasure
will, as they read, understand why in many cities ministers
and others pronounced the visit of the Squadron the equal
to a religious revival in moral force and power.

Some of the speakers were able to continue but a few
weeks; some went the full journey from the first place to
the last. Each brought to the public a message which was
distinct, unique and forceful, for each put himself into his
message. There was not a speaker on the Squadron who
was not aflame with a consuming passion for the destruc-
tion of the saloon.

The campaign they made is history. The record cannot
be changed. There it stands.

Here are the addresses it gave to the American people
on behalf of this great cause. Those who delivered them
placed on the altar that which money could not buy
health, long separation from home and loved ones, nerve
force and power, time and zeal.

Only in the distant future, "where beyond these voices
there is peace," will the world be able to make a correct
estimate of their contribution to the present struggle to
rid the Nation of the saloon.

The liquor traffic is weaker and all righteous forces are
stronger since these addresses were delivered.

J. FRANK HANLY



J 9 FRANK HANLY was born in a log cabin in Cham-
paign County, Illinois, April 4, 1863. He received
most of his earlier education at his mother's knee,
under her tutorship. He was able to attend school but
little, scarcely a year all told. At thirteen years of age he
started out to make his way in the world as a hired hand
on a farm. While thus engaged he acquired sufficient
knowledge of the common branches to obtain a license as
a teacher of the public schools of Warren County in 1881,
having come to the State of Indiana two years before.
Later he attended a course of six weeks in the Eastern
Illinois Normal School, at Danville, Illinois.

He continued to teach in the public schools of Indiana
and Illinois until 1889, when he was admitted to the bar and
began the practice of the law at Williamsport, Indiana. In
1890 he was nominated and elected State Senator, and in
1894 to the Congress of the United States. In 1898 he was
narrowly defeated in the Republican legislative caucus for
United States Senator by a coalition of all the opposition
after a memorable contest. In 1904 he was elected Gov-
ernor of Indiana over Hon. John W. Kern by a plurality of
nearly eighty-five thousand, a plurality at that time without
precedent in Indiana, and the four years of his administra-
tion mark an epoch in the history not only of his State, but
in the Nation. History was made in those years, history
that will live, for forces for civic betterment were set in
motion that will never stop until evil is dead.

In 1908, while serving as Governor, he was elected to the
General Conference of the Methodist Episcopal Church,
which convened in Baltimore in May of that year. He was
made Chairman of the General Committee on Temperance and
prepared the Church's utterance on that subject. In 1912 he
was re-elected a delegate to the General Conference which
convened in Minneapolis, and again served as Chairman

of the General Temperance Committee, and again prepared
the utterance of the Church on this subject.

In 1900 he was Chairman of the Republican State Con-
vention, and in 1912 was a delegate to the Republican Na-
tional Convention, which convened in Chicago.

For years he has held high place on the lecture platform.
As Governor he delivered the dedicatory address at the un-
veiling of the monument to Oliver P. Morton, on the State
House grounds in Indianapolis ; at the unveiling of the
monument in commemoration of the Battle of Tippecanoe,
on the ground where the Battle of Tippecanoe was fought ;
at the unveiling of the monument in honor of Indiana's
