only 2.41 per cent of the total crop

Constitution and maintain law and

"No man should dare call himself

that the upholding of the Constitu

government alone; it must rise
from the stern demand and loyal

In Spokane in 1914, the head of
one of the largest milk distributing
concerns spent a large sum of mon
ey and considerable time in opposi
tion to the prohibition amendment
to the state constitution because he
furnished a large quantity of milk
to the saloons and the families of
the saloonkeepers. Within six weeks
after the closing of the saloons, he
was out in the country begging the
farmers .to purchase more cows so
they could furnish him more milk.
This man in a conversation in 1916
with a citizen of Heppner states
that within a few days after the
closing of the saloons families of
railroad workers and employees of

a pint of milk a day began taking
from a quart to two quarts. He was
