Wheeler, of the Anti- Saloon league, practically the on- ly lobbyist on the scene, has fur- nished the only real news of the gathering up to the present time. He announced in unequivocal terms that his organization is op- posed to any change in the pre- sent provisions of the constitution affecting the liquor traffic and will make the hardest kind of a fight to this end. With little else to talk about except bribery prosecutions, the legislators were much interested in the statement of Wheeler, Friday.

Before eitter can K adopted it must secure a ma- jority of ail votes cast in the elec- tion." The "drys" "will rely on the, inabil- ity of either proposition to secure the majority. While Wheeler was silent on the point, there never has, been any real evidence that the or- ganization, which has written on the statute books the entire system ot restrictive laws, favors legal .prohi- bition. While its leaders de- clared repeatedly that prohibition is the ultimate purpose, -their success has conie because they hare met con- ditions as they exist Conditions to- day are not deemed ripe for the suc- cess of prohibition in Ohio, pirticfl- larly in the large cities.
