Item Information help

  • Description
    Excerpts from speech on temperance given by William Walton Kitchin at Dobson, Surry County, North Carolina as reported in the News and Observer, September 3, 1908. The speech points out that Prohibition is just one of the important issues of the day, such as education, "just and economical government", "eliminating from every county the fear of political control by the Negro", etc., so "no man should be opposed because he favored or fought Prohibition" as "able and honest men without regard to political parties ranged themselves on either side."
