The Temperance Crusade.


Tlw visit to Timaru of Rev. Father Hays, the Catholic tpmpsranee advocate, (says the "Timaru Herald") must have been very widely talked about to have created the " boom " which manifested itself in the meeting assembled in the Drill Hall last evening to hear him. Certainly no euch gathering bad ever been seen indoors in Timaru before, the number being estimated at about 2000. The Rev. Father Hays spoke for about an hour and a quarter in a clear voics that wa3 well heard all over the hall. Ha is a slow, deliberate speaker, giving his hearers plenty of time to assimilate what he is saying. He maintained almost throughout a quiet argumentative style, seldom forcing a point by declamation, a-strong religious tone pervaded the addross throughout. His address was enlivened by numerous illustrative anecdotes, generally humorous, and these were thoroughly enjoyed, yet not so much a3 some jests of his own, such ns clever little quips at the expense of our" express" trains. He was very frequently aad heartily applauded.
