spellbinders and silver-tongued ora
tors from America to put over this
prohibition," says Henry Randall,
who is heading the business men's
movement in England to suppress the
sale of intoxicants until after the war.
Mr. Randall has written all the ad
vertisements in the English press
under the name of "Organizer," and
they have created a great sensation.
Mr. Randall says:
"We are not a temperance society,
but business men, and we don't be
lieve in preaching temperance, but in
selling it through an advertisement
as ameans of obtaining greater effi
ciency in business as well as in the
army. We ought to borrow your

and audiences. We want somebody
to shake ud this liberal government,
and he must be an American spell
binder and silver-tongued orator. No
other can do it.
