rrohlhllion Anienifmenl, Inc.
The letter demands to know the position of each
. candidate on "the program of thw organization," the
live istue, prohibition.
No one but the Senator and the Association know
what reply he made to this letter.
Senator Hitchcock must, however, have made a
reply and it mut have been "atifactory," for the As
sociation's letter says, "If no reply is received within ten
days the assumption will be that you are not in favor
of our movement," and the Association has just an
nounced that the Senator is'onc of the chosen "two hun
dred" candidates it endorses.
But what of W. J. Bryan's plea at Lincoln,
Last Monday at Lincoln, W, J, Bryan read a letter
from Wayne B, Wheeler, head of the Anti-Saloon Leasruc
t Washington, in which Wheeler said he also had had a
"satisfactory" letter from Senator Hitchcock on prohi.
Let the voter remember that at the very time these
letters were going back and forth from Senator Hitch
cock to the "Association! Afrainst the Prohibition Amend
ment. Inc.," and to the Anti-Saloon League at Washing
ton, the Senator was declaring through his paper and
his speeches and reiterating time and again that ''the
liquor question is e. dead issue."
Here, indeed, is u situation without parallel in the
history of Nebraska.
Senator Hitchcock said a few days ago at Nelson,
Nebraska, "As the Senator from Nebraska, I would not
vote to amend the Volstead Act because I would not be
representing the people of this state."
Yet, the "Association. Against the Prohibition
Amendment" announces in Washington last Tuesday,
that Senator Hiteheock's views are acceptable regarding
its platform, which calls for "the repeal of the Volstead
Act and then of the prohibition amendment itself."
What is the "drj" voter going to do about it?
Whiit is the "wet" voter ,'oing to ib about it?
What is the woman voter in Nebraska going to do
Senator Hitchcock cannot make his "eleventh hour
conversion" good with the "dry" voters of Nebraska ex
cept by votine eiainat every t (Tort to repeal the Vol.
stead Act or the prohibition amendment.
Senator lli'i heork c; nnot make gond w ith the
"Anu htion Agtint the Prohibition Amendment" which
enibre him, tx ct-pi lv voliuf for th r"pel of the Vol
stead Act enJ the prohibition Amendment itself.
Will the Senator betray the "(v" uUr uf ,
irk or the "vetM iier of Ni-brnska and the "As
sofiation Again! the Prohibition Ann iulnu id ?" lie t un
write letter thnt arc- "tif o lory" to both,
