Martial law was declared shortly after an explosion at a corn sugar plant. Almost all of the alcohol consumed in the USA during prohibition was made from corn sugar. From the same edition:

The Glucose Trust, The Yeast Trust

Corn Sugar produced 95% of all moonshine (link)

The Ku-Klux Klan were fanatical enforcers of prohibition, and were given plenty of leeway when it came to dealing with the subjugated recipients of Christian tough love, thanks o the New York Times portrayal of Blacks on the eve of signing of the Harrison Act. In its 08 FEB 1914 edition. Ten years after, in 1924, it was the Demon Rum that threatened the very foundations of civilization. So an upstream corn sugar plant blows up, and the Klan involves Federal troops in looting operations 82 years before George Waffen Bush funds faith-based looters on asset forfeiture rampages to wreck the economy. Here’s the last of the story…

Faith-based asset forfeiture looting

82 years before Bush Jr faith-based asset-forfeiture Crash

The present situation in Williamson county developed when citizens said to have affiliated with the Ku Klux Klan caused prohibition enforcement officers to come into the county and conduct raids. The officers deputized between 300 and 400 citizens, many of whom were armed when the raids were carried out.
The first raid was staged December 22, when posses, headed by the enforcement officers, swept over the county making wholesale arrests. W.A. Peters, police magistrate and a member of a raiding party at West Frankfort, a small mining town, was wounded by two foreigners, and two foreigners were wounded when they resisted arrest. One hundred and thirty-six arrests were made. The second raid was made on January 5 and 50 arrests were made.

KLAN ACTIVITIES

–A report that the Ku Klux Klan had contributed $3000 for law enforcement in the county was denied, but it inflamed those opposed to the hooded organization. The raids were conducted without the knowledge of Sheriff Galligan. It was intimated he was not told of the movement because the news might “leak out.”
The Klan staged numerous parades in different parts of the county and there quickly sprang up an anti-Klan organization known as the Knights of the Flaming Circle. Clashes between the organizations were narrowly averted on several occasions.
Sheriff Galligan told Adj. General Black today that the raids conducted by the federal officers and citizens had become more than mere law enforcement raids. He charged irresponsible purposes has seized upon them to burn buildings and rob. Only the presence of troops could keep order, he said. (Aurora Daily Star 09JAN1924 1)

Dry Dixieland 1913

Government Gunmen for God and Good

We know best how to run your life

Long before Ayn Rand drafted the Non-Aggression Pledge, white Dixie Democrats were hard at work collecting signatures on a pro-life promise to point loaded guns at people. This they regarded as their deontological duty seven years before Christian National Socialism was even invented, and six years before George Wallace was born.

Godliness at Gunpoint!

The Pro-Aggression Pledge of Their Neighbors’ Keepers

Within a year, the Harrison Tax Act would reach out with censorship of advertising, just as the same mentality manages to do today. These holy warriors for the Comstock laws got their power in many states before the Prohibition Amendment brought forth the Crash and Great Depression.

Naturally prohibitionists were surprised, and of course they seek to banish the thought or suggestion that sending government gunmen into banks and brokerages to confiscate accounts could possibly cause money to be withdrawn into hoarding until the fractional-reserve currency system collapsed into an economic black hole. The very suggestion elicits puzzlement that such a thought could be seriously entertained. But the thought is indeed entertaining and will enlighten your understanding of economics and how economics applies to today’s prohibitionism.

For more on how bipartisan prohibitionism crushed the U.S. economy and brought on the Great Depression, why not download Prohibition and The Crash–Cause and Effect in 1929?
