The United States of India (December 1924)

The December 1924 issue of The United States of India (Vol 2, No. 6) begins with an essay by N.S. Singh on "Britain's 'Golden Egg' -- The Liquor Revenue." Singh advocates prohibition in India as an anti-imperialist strategy, and characterizes the "the drink evil, which has been forced upon them by the British." Another essay goes into extensive detail about the opium trade, and its relationship to various political factions. Four short news reports are also included in the issue, including a report on the "bogus Indian representative" Sir J. Campbell, who had recently battled with Pennsylvania Congressman Stephen Porter regarding opium production and use in India.
