Prohibition Press Release - Page 2

The second page of the undated press release, regarding Prohibition violations by high-ranking people in the Seattle-Tacoma area, continues in the same gleeful tone as the first page.

Note this paragraph:

How far back the mass of incriminating evidence stretches is not known, but it is reported to include the year of 1926 following on down to the past few months, involving hundreds of thousands of tainted dollars and casting the shadow of crime upon the names of many Tacomans hitherto considered beyond reproach.
