100 years ago - The Rev. Sam Small, prohibition worker of Atlanta, Ga., delivered his anti-saloon address, "Personal Liberty," at the city auditorium yesterday afternoon before a large audience. The Rev. Mr. Small was introduced by Governor George W. Hays who talked briefly of the numerous things that the Rev. Mr. Small had done to forward the cause of prohibition. Governor Hays spoke of the Sheppard-Hobson bill for national prohibition and said: "This question of national prohibition is not only a call to the moral, but to the intellectual citizenship of the country, and as a result of the present fight, nation-wide prohibition is now inevitable."
