Mr. McPherson said he finds much
sentiment for Dr. C. J. Smith and

that the election of Dr. Withycombe

ADRHTIED - BY DRY
Big Blunder in Misleading "Prohibition Campaign" Is Made
J. E. WHEELER, CHAIRMAN OF
COMMITTEE OF ONE HUNDRED
ADMITS in Public Print
That Prohibition is AN INFRINGEMENT OF PERSONAL LIBERTY.
That the word "DISTRIBUTION" was DELIBERATELY LEFT OUT
of the proposed "prohibition" amendment. '
That "ANY CITIZEN" may ship liquor "direct from some other state
to HIS OWN HOME."
Every Claim Made by the Anti-Prohibition Forces Against the Proposed Prohibition Amend-
ment in Oregon Is Confessed in the Three Above Admissions
The Anti-Frohibition Forces
Have Steadf astly Claimed:
that "Prohibition is an infringement of PERSONAL LIBERTY." Mr. Wheeler admits it word for word' in
public print. 5
that "Prohibition will not prohibit." Mr. Wheeler's admission proves his Committee of One Hundred s not
trying to prohibit. -
that "Prohibition does not mean dry Oregon." r
that "Prohibition would be a death blow to the present .healthy growth of TRUE TEMPERANCE SENTI
MENT in the land." Mr. Wheeler's admission provesit.
that "Prohibition would let down the bars to BLIND-PIGSERS and BOOTLEGGERS, who - would, deal in
deadly decoctions," the same law allowing any "blind-digger" with a HOME to ship liquor "direct from
some other state to HIS own home. The BL1ND-PIGGER is as much of a "CITIZEN" as any other man
or woman in Oregon. The blind-pigger, because he. is not under inspection by State, Federal or City of
ficials, will "manufacture" one barrel of PURE WINE, BEER or LIQUOR into a DOZEN BARRELS of
POISONOUS BEVERAGES that will make z new generation of imbeciles, idiots and criminals in Oregon.
Mr. Wheeler's Three Blundering Admissions Are the Best
Three Reasons Why His Misnamed, Misleading "Prohi
bition" Amendment Is an Alarming Menace to the State
IT IS AN ALARMING MENACE
BECAUSE he would have the people of this state
vote away their PERSONAL LIBERTY in the
belief that they were voting for a "dry Oregon."
BECAUSE he would take away the present splen
did HOME RULE and LOCAL OPTION LAWS
from the CITIES and TOWNS and transfer
liquor traffic control to the state.
BECAUSE, with all kinds of vile liquor being
shipped in "FROM OTHER STATES" into
"ANY CITIZEN'S HOME," not subject to Fed
eral, state or local inspection, it will "be ENTIRE
LY UNREGULATED, and will become as "free
BECAUSE it will permit any BOY OR MAN to
"ship" in whiskey in any amount, without even
having to SIGN HIS NAME with the TRANS
PORTATION COMPANIES, as under the present
HOME RULE and LOCAL OPTION laws.
BECAUSE it will in no way check the IRRESPON
SIBLE DRINKER, whom a "prohibition law" is
said to protect.
BECAUSE it would wipe out .$900,000 in LI
CENSE REVENUES in the state, without aiding
BECAUSE it would seriously INCREASE TAXES
in the state, without aiding TRUE TEMPER
ANCE. BECAUSE it would seriously cripple the HOP
. YARDS and HOP INDUSTRY of the state, in
jure a $3,000,000 ANNUAL PAYROLL OF 50,
000 HOP-PICKERS and sadly reduce $6,O0d,000
ANNUAL LNCOME to the state from HOP
SALES; without aiding TRUE TEMPERANCE,
BECAUSE it would force liquor into THOUSANDS
of HOMES in this state, to be drunk WHOLE
SALE by UNRESTRAINED DRINKERS before
the very eyes of the CHILDREN WHOM TRUE
TEMPERANCE WOULD PROTECT, thus deal
ing a serious blow to TRUE TEMPERANCE in
the HOME, without in any way aiding TRUE
BECAUSE it would build up an ARMY OF BOOT
LEGGERS in the HIGHWAYS and BYWAYS,
teaching HYPOCRISY, DECEIT AND LYING TO
MEN AND BOYS and WOMEN AND GIRLS,
too thus dealing another serious blow to TRUE
TEMPERANCE, without in any way aiding TRUE
Read What Mr. Wheeler, Chairman of the "Pro- ;
hibitipn" Committee of One Hundred, says in ji
his own words in the "official dry organ," The f
Evening Telegram of Portland, Sept. 29, 1914: 8.
"The 'wet' forces are seeking to make capital of the fact
that the proposed Oregon dry amendment-DOES NOT
FORBID THE 'DISTRIBUTION' OF LIQUOR, but
merely its 'MANUFACTURE and 'SALE.'
"THEY ARE CORRECT. This was done DESIGN
EDLY and DELIBERATELY BY THOSE WHO
DREW THIS AMENDMENT. Oregon has many citizens,
especially many of foreign birth, who desire. to have liquor
IN THEIR HOMES. They feel that it wouldfbe a
HARDSHIP and an INFRINGEMENT ': OF THEIR
PERSONAL LIBERTY absolutely to forbid them the use
of liquor. iU -
"The present proposed law DOES NOT FORBIDTHE
USE OF LIQUOR by any citizen, be he poor or ricli, pro
vided he wishes to have this SHIPPED DIRECT FROM.
SOME OTHER STATE TO HIS OWN HOME.";'
Can Any Intelligent Voter Fail to See the
. VOTE 333 X NO
And Put an End to this Prohibition Agitation.
