"Water Cure for the Brewery" The Hawaiian Gazette, May 23, 1902, Image 1

Text from the accompanying article: "The Anti-Saloon League and the Women's Christian Temperance Union have joined hands in the movement against the Honolulu brewery and the saloons operating under licenses to dispose of its product. At the regular monthly meeting yesterday afternoon of the W. C. T. U. several of the officers of the league were present and made stirring addresses on the subject, urging the women to strike at the brewery while the time was ripe and to prevent, if possible, the reenactment of the license under which the brewery is now operating. At the conclusion of the joint proceedings the women of the union promised to put their shoulders to the wheel and make an active campaign against the makers and sellers of beer."
