The grain, lumber, and meat industries were rapidly changing during this time, which led to exceptional growth for the city of Chicago. Railroad systems and water transportation were big factors in the growth of Chicago by spreading the aforementioned industries across the U.S. Such rapid growth was perceived to be responsible for the creation of the mass market in the U.S. today.

First of all fraternities are different and are founded on different ideals. With that being said, I believe this fraternity should not base the quality of their new members on how much they can drink. Ultimately Benjamin was the one who chose to put himself in that situation involving heavy drinking and could have removed himself from the situation whenever he wanted to.
