mayor of Newburg iu an artiole iu
the Pacific Advocate makes some fine
points for prohibition. He Baya"We
are proud of onr city and I do think
we have a right to be. I was asked to
tell how we planned our campaign to
get rid of the saloons and bow we
carried the election. In the first

Today we would invite yoo to come
