If Claiborne Parish can drive out the open saloons with high license other parishes can do likewise. Another year, Union Parish will probably adopt high licenses and then open saloons will be a thing of the past in Junction City. — Homer Guardian Journal

Our neighbor is right, we think, in saying that another year “open saloons will be a thing of the past in Junction City;” but we believe they will be knocked out, not by high license, but by prohibition. Then if the people of Junction will do their duty, they will not be troubled with the saloon fighting whiskey.
