FRIDAY, DEC. -1, 1885.
PROHIBITION AGAIN REASONED.
UV D. M. UUOWU'.Y.
Is the liquor tralllc, as licensed hy
law, ii business which should be cn
cout aired or suppressed? The an
swer must depend upon nn inipailiul
enquiry into thu nature of the busi
ness and itb lesults upon the general
well-being of tho people.
The ill si act to legulatc or license
the sale of ale in England dates from
1552, and, as nc learn fiom the pie
ainblc, was of a restrictive charac
ter. It leads: u An act for kcepcis
of ale-houses to be bound in recogni
zances and giving the justices the
power to close ale-houses in such
town or towns as they shall think
meet and convenient." Evidently
the unrestricted sale of ale was not
found to be an unmixed henellt
three centuries ago, and in the in
terval down to our oui time the
British Pailiament has enacted and
repealed hundreds of laws for the
better regulation of the conduct of
the ale, and its numerous added
"cocktail" relations in the spiiit
business; and yet it is confessed
that a satisfactory solution that of
bringing the business into harmony
with the general inteicsts of the
j people has not yet been realized.
, Expeiience undoubtedly proves that
no legislation which permits the ex
istence of this business can prevent
it from becoming an injury.
Tho indictment against the liquor
traffic was never so strong as it is
to-day. In the United States, espe
cially, an enlightened public opinion
is giving foice to a movement which
threatens its oveitluow at no distant
date. Tueic aic solid causes to ac
count foi this mocmcnt. The peo
ple now icalUe the fact that for
years the liquor interest has been a
growing power and a potent factor
in politics, a gigantic "Tammany"
organized and equipped, and so
boasting of its strength as to be a
practical menace to the peace and
moral older of society. In the
United States the two great political
paities have been so conti oiled br
the mm power that the temperance
question could not get a healing,
and, as might have been foicsccn by
the bosses, this has led to the forma
tion of a "third party" which has
nailed its colors to the mast and
on its shield is cut deep these words,
"Down with the rum power."
In this kingdom few would sup
nose the whiskey business sullicicntly
powerful to control the Privy Council
and the Ministry to tho extent of
treating with silent contempt the
petitions of the people most inter
ested against the thicatencd ex
tension of the business. This is an
act unequalcd in our time under any
Government disclaiming' despotic
power, and brings the rum power
out into hold lclief as the enemy of
civil libcity. Wcio these political
meddlings with the piopcr functions
of good government the only chaiges
against the liquor traffic, they would
be enough to laise every fiee man's
hand against it, but unfoitunately
conuption is its pioduct every wheic ;
moral and physical injury, sorrow
and suffering, arc the unfailing pro
ducts of the drink traffic in eveiy
walk of life. The woiking man in
Araeiica, especially is beginning to
nuclei stand political economy well
enough to know, that the drink
traffic is the levcrse of every other
industry in that it is not reproduc
tive, lie knows that this enormous
outlay of labor and capital drawn
from legitimate enterprise, is the
chief cause of commercial and manu
facturing depression. Ho knows
also, if he belongs to a trade or
labor union, that the drink destroys
the workingman's independence, and
that by his poverty he can not resist
the reduction of wages.
The employer knows the dunk to
be antagonistic to Ins interests, and
hence we find manufacturers in the
United Kingdom entrenching them
selves in cities of their own as
Saltare in England and Uesshorough
on Ireland for the one purpose of
keeping the dunk away. In America
this course is followed by the Corliss
Engine Works and Fahkuiks &c Co. ,
the celebrated Scale maken of St.
Johnsbury, Vcunont. Hear, friend
Nota Bene, what Eaii banks & Co.
say in reply to enquiries in this line
and it must be admitted that they
have a "eoncct nndcistaiuling" of
a manufaoluier's wnnU:
"It has been the rule of this
house, ever since its establishment,
to employ no man who is in thu habit
of using intoxicating liquors. That
rule is firmly adhered to at the pre
sent time. Wo do not say that a
man shall not drink, but we do say
that ho can not work for us if lie
does. This is so thoroughly under
fetood, that occasionally we have had
a, man leave us of his own accord
because lie could not endute the
restriction. Our liile lias been tho
means of reclaiming not a few who
have become staunch temperance
men. and who, befoie coming to us,
were on the load to ruin.
"Tho result of this rule is to briug
us a company of men wlio are in
.tin Him inM miii n min
tclligciil, industrious', and frugal.
Thoso who have been the longest
time with us have accumulated pro
poity, and have comfoi table, happy
homes. Many of our employees arc
nuinbcied among our Muy best in
fluential Clnistian citizens. When a
man falls out through want of con
founity to our inks, we have no
difficulty in Tilling his place witlra
sober man who respects himself
which means, being respected by
We have now medical evidence of
deteiioiativc and special diseases
produced by di ink which were not
known, or, at least, under consider
ation 50 vcars aio, but arc now
given iu Hie writings of all eminent
physiologists. The physical effects
of alcohol and the value to health of
abstinence arc wiitlcninthcicpoitof
every actuary in life insurance. Fifty
year's ago or less, a teetotaler could
with dilllcullyiget his life insuicd
to-day he is at a premium. 11ns is
not due to any sentiment, but to
figures which "can't lie." Total
abstinence is the motto of every
athletic club to-day, as it was in the
days of Giccce and Home. The
champion oarsman and champion
shot of to-day arc watcr-di inkers.
The danger to life and propcity
from drink is well exemplified in
the prohibitory niles of many of the
leading railroads in tho United Stales ;
not that il is a new discovery, as
the following U0 years' old resolu
tion proves :
"Jtesolvedi That the different
Marine Insurance Companies in the
city of New York will allow a de
duction of five per cent, on the net
picmiums which may he taken after
this date on all vessels, and on ves
sels together with their outfits, if
on whaling and scaling voyages,
terminating without los, piovidcd
the master and mate make affidavit,
after the termination of the risk,
that no aidcnt spirits had been
diunk on board the vessel by the
olliccrs and ciew during the voyage
or tcim for which the vessel or out
fits were insured. Adopted by the
Board of Undcrwiiteis of the Cily
of New Yoikin 1831."
1 will conclude this article by
proving that the principle of pro
hibiting the liquor traffic is as old as
our Anglo-Saxon history, and quote
feted concerning its operation which
