Detroit saloonkeepers are upset with Governor Osborn. During the election preliminaries two years ago, he swore to be their friend, but now is courting those who favor prohibition!
NOW KNOW GOVERNOR’S TREACHERY: SALOONKEEPERS OF DETROIT, SINCE OSBORN’S ATTACK, RECALL HOW HE SOUGHT THEIR VOTES IN 1910 AND DECLARED SELF THEIR FRIEND. HALL RENTED BY KNOX FOR SPEECH AT ONE MEETING, AUDITORS DECLARE, HE DRANK BEER, SPOKE IN FAVOR OF DRINKING AND SAID LIQUOR WOULD BE GOOD FOR THE “DRYS.” Detroit Free Press, March 28, 2001
Note : The Main Library now provides the MSU community online access to the historical Detroit Free Press from 1858 through 1922.
