Obviously this disconcerted tho
Prohlbltlon'dlnndcrers . They wnntcd

said they were. They wanted to nut

level with the low dive keeper, who
nbuses liquor nnd everything else.
Thurston thought It was easy to tie
claro that the liquor men wero send
Ing dray loads of gin to the country
districts for the voters on election
day. Challenged for proof, bo baa not

The evil things spoken have come

Tho people, by their voto, demon
