This ad starts of by stating "Below we print a map which shows at a glance how easy it would be for the Anti-Saloon League and those who are advocating Charter Amendment No. 27 to dry up the leading business sections of San Francisco by tacking them on to residence sections" and continues by saying "Look at the black territory on this map and see for yourself how a residence district extending from the Cliff House to the Fairmont Hotel could easily be tacked on the Exposition site, Powell Street, and Market Street as far down as the Ferry".

The ad concludes by saying "No one wants to ruin our splendid hotels, cafes and clubs that are famous the world over. No one wants to prevent them serving Califonria wines with bonafide meals."
