announced, however, that the parade
waa to be an expression in favor of
home rule, the permit was granted.

sign, which bore reference to a publio
charge made after the recent dry parade
that It participants had been chiefly chil
dren and In only a few instances tax
payers or voters.
"The toller la worthy of hla re
