The case dragged on for some
time, with no further developments
worthy of note. Sir Rufus Isaacs
was the head of a formidable array

was not until January 11. 104, that
the English government was able to
bring the greatest swindler and pro

bar for a final passing of judgment
upon him. The case was continued
for six days, and on the seventh

STATE WIDE PROHIBITION

The very important issue of state

Campaign in favor of a constitutional
amendment will be shortly instituted.
This, like all other important ques

are found honest and intelligent per

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
