Description of the power of the Anti-Saloon League, 1909
undertaken by the organisation. The Anti-Saloon league is a remarkable Institution, .It Is the most potent organisation in politics, outside or the regular political parties, ever known In! the I'tilted States. It Is avowedly and openly a political Institution, yet it has so localized Its activities that it works with either or both of the two principal parties as Its best Interests dictate. It 1 does not hesitate to change from Republican to Domooratlc over night, and sometimes it forces both parties to accept its men and measures. The league, by the adoption of these tactlCS, has had much to do with the' growing tendency to settle political; battles without regard to national Issues.
