Text reads: "PUBLIC SPEAKING! The Great Issue of the Political Campaign PRESENTED FOR THE PEOPLE! History and Philosophy of Political Parties, Their Ends and Purposes Shown. FELLOW-CITIZENS: For any man to love truth and find the best way of life he must hear and investigate BOTH SIDES of all questions sincerely presented for his acceptance. A political party has been organized in the United States for the prohibition of the importation, transportation, manufacture and sale of all intoxicating beverages. The Democratic and Republican speakers and papers have shown you their objections to this party and why you should not vote in this election, if at all, for its Dominant Issue---Prohibition. We earnestly invite you to come [three blank lines] and hear the other side. The Prohibition party was born of honest convictions, and is growing strong day by day in the conscience and intelligence of the nation. [finger pointing to right] Come to the speaking, and bring your wives and your daughters. J. Hopwood"
