OPEN FORUM FOR DEBATING
STATE WIDE PROHIBITION
The very important issue of state
wide prohibition has been raised. A
Campaign in favor of a constitutional
amendment will be shortly instituted.
This, like all other important ques

are found honest and intelligent per
sons. The Republican has decided to pro

these points we can sharetheir fears.
In the first place nothing could ope
rate more in defiance of law than the
saloon itself. Ii is the universal law
breaker. It is in direct, open and
shameful alliance everywhere with all
the lawless lements of society. It fur
nishes them a rendezvous where they
can plot their crimes. It is their social
"club". The "blind pig", by reason of
its being such, is more quiet, more con
cealed, more careful.
Bui the fact is that prohibition is i

"Mind pig", The "blind pig" is merely
another breaking-out, another mani
festation of the poisoning virus of the
liquor business. Liquor is wholly re-
sponsible for the blind pig. Not one
could exist for a minute on prohibi- j
li.m. The blind pig gets its supply j
from the brewer and the distiller, the
men higher up in the illegal saloon

of the law from a source ill
