On the liquor question he said no time Fob neutrality a i will have no Man vote for me with any misunderstanding of my position on the liquor question. This is no time for neutrality on this Issue. I am opposed to liquor Rind i make no apologies for my opposition to it.

I advocated a referendum on the liquor question so that we might again determine How our people feel on this very important and far reaching question and i still believe As i believed then that this is the right Way and the fail1 Way to Settle this question. Do not believe the legislature has the right to nullify and set aside the election of 1908 which gave the people of this slate prohibition i do not believe the general Assembly of North Carolina. Composed of Only 170 members. Has the right to nullify and declare void a Law that was passed by a vote in which 80,000 voters participated.
