TO THE PEOPLE.
Final Appeal 01 the Prohibition
State Central Committee.
CITIZENS OF NKHUASKA : These tow last
words of warning and encouragement arc ad
dressed to every patriotic home builder and
bread winner in our beloved state. The Amend
ment campaign culminates in the final battle
on the 4th day of November. That one day
will practically settle for years , so far as our
state is concerned , whether the drink truffle
shall be outlawed , or whether it shall he given
the sanction of our citizens , who have witness
ed its awful career of crime in state and na
The agents of the brewers , distillers and saloonkeepers
oon-keepers have conducted a campaign re
plete with audacious falsehood and malignant
slander. Such disreputable methods to deceive
the people were never before employed In the
h istory of Nebraska.
Claiming to represent the business interests
and moral welfare of the state , the desperate
tools of the consolidated liquor power have
boycotted , bulldozed and corrupted every man
weak enough to be influenced by their bravado
or deluded by their lyiuir sophistry.
ONE GREAT FACT.
Lot this onegreat fact be made plain to every
citizen of Nebraska. The National Liquor
League , the wealthy brewers of Milwaukee ,
the millionaire distillers of Peoria and every
whiskey corporation in Nebraska with every
saloon-keeper and that saloon's letinuo of
thieves , thugs and moral lepers , all these are
united in a struggle for life , with those repre
senting the higher intelligence , the nobler
manhood , the social , moral and political wel
fare of our grandercivilization.
HOW TO DEFEAT THESE FOES OF OUR STATE.
Organize an Amendment Committee in every
voting precinct. Pledge from five to fifty
workers to give the entire day , November4tb ,
to this all important work. Abandon the work
of your farms , offices , stores and shops for this
one day. in the interests of the homes of Neb
See that plenty of tickets are sent to every
precinct in good time for use , and keep close
watch for fraudulent and defective ballots
which will be circulated by the enemy.
Spot every hired poll worker of the saloon
side and detail shrewd men to head off their
tricks and break down their influence. Bo on
your guard against all manner of fraud , de
ception and illegal voting and
STAY TO WITNESS THE COUNT.
The law provides that the canvass of ballots
shall be public. Have at least two witnesses
o the canvass of ballots at every polling place
and report the result to headquarters at Lin
coln as soon as it is known.
Do not get tired on the afternoon of election
day. fight every inch , every hour , every
minute till the last vote is cast. It requires a
majority of all votes cast to carry the Amend
ment. That majority is in sight ; but negli
gence or over-confidence will bring defeat. It
was Napoleon's maxim never to despise or
umler-estimnte the strength of the enemy.
Remember that a ballot cast blank operates the
same as though cast against the Amendment.
TO VOTE FOR THE PROHIBITORY AMENDMENT
see that your ballots contain either written
or printed , or partly written and partly print
ed , these words :
"For proposed Amendment to the Constitu
tion , prohibiting the manulacturc , sale and
keeping for sale of intoxicating liquors as a
See also tnat these words appear on your
ballot as avote :
AGAINST THE LICENSE AMENDMENT.
Be sure and cast this also :
"Against said proposed Amendment to the
Constitution that the manufacture , sale and
keeping for sale of intoxicating liquors as a
beverage shall be licensed and regulated by
Only a few days remain in which to do all
that can be done to insure a victory over the
saloon. Believing that you will vigorously
and successfully press the battle to its close.
we remain Yours for the home ,
