Why "Local Option" should be defeated


Item Information help

  • Description
    Broadside of an article urging voters not to pass a local option banning the sale of liquors in Frederick County, Maryland. The writer argues that temperance legislation drives revenue into other counties without restrictions, and can "strip so many worthy and law-abiding people of their livelihood," while there is "law enough on the statute-books to punish drunkenness."
