Although many people believe that
the American prohibition experiment
will have some effect in this country,
tbjere is a wide divergence of opinion

of America will influence the drink
question in England."
W. A. Appleton, secretary erf the
General Federation of Trade Unions,
"Let the working man have his drink
of beer, which may go to his head,
but it does not destroy his liver and
his good nature."
