JOKES IN "DRY" AMENDMENT ADMITTED BY "DRYS."
BIG BLUNDER IN MISLEADING "PROHIBITION" CAMPAIGN (S MADE
J, E. Wheeler, Chairman of Committee of One Hundred, admits in Public Print
That Prohibition is an Jnfringement of Personal Liberty.
That the word "Distribution" was Deliberately Left Out of the proposed "prohibition"
That "Any Citizen" may ship liquor "direct from some other state" into 4His Own Home."
fivery Claim made by the anti-prohibition forces against the prohibition amendment
in Oregoii is confessed in the three above admissions.
That "prohibition is an infringement of personal liberty." Mr. Wheeler admits it, word
for word, in public print.
That "prohibition will not Prohibit." Mr. Wheeler's admission proves his Committee
of One Hundred is not trying to prohibit.
That "nrohibition does not mean Dry Oregon."
That "prohibition would be a Death Blow to the present healthy growth of True Tem
rance Sentiment in the land." Mr. Wheeler's admission proves it.

"Nearly all of th' lhn& of the

Jher appears that Jhe quantity to
celved by the drugstores during the

during the preceding three montbi,
and too large to be disposed of in

of physicians of Hood River County

1,342 barrels of beer,
85 cases of liquor,

This is enough liquor to stock one

Doubtless similar amounts have been
sent in by the Oregon Electric Ball

panies operating within tho city. Tho
records do not show the. amounts in
each keg, case or barrel, but the fig

has been a vast amount of liquor con

the city has received no license re
