The Adventures of Tom Sawyer

What is revealed about the town's "temperance taverns" in Chapter 29? How might this-along with Twain's characterization of the Cadets of Temperance-be read as a criticism of the practice of "temperance"?

Please help

In Chapter 29, we learn that the Temperance Taverns are ironically filled with liquor supplies. From this, we can infer that though many publicly supported temperance.... they privately tempered themselves with drink.
