It is to t o expected that the liquor
forces and those who like their drink
will oppose the local option law, but
for opposition to come from such men
as Hon. E. Chafin, ex-candidate o f the

great emphasis Mr. Chafin denounces
the local option law as unrighteous,
unwise and inefficient. He will uphold
his side o f the question in a debate at
