This headline and illustration are from the August 18, 1917 issue of the Duluth Rip Saw. The story is without a byline, but was no doubt written by the paper’s publisher, John L. Morrison.
Morrison abhorred alcohol and political corruption, and railed against both in nearly every issue of what he called “The Great Family Journal.”
The complete text of the story follows. To put this in historical context: Before the national Prohibition, Duluth and Superior each had their own alcohol bans. This story follows the lifting of Superior’s ban.
