SATURDAY, DUG. 0, 18S5.
PROHIBITION AGAIN REASONED.
DV 1). M. CHOWLKY.
Is the prohibition of tlio liquor,
tralllc :i lecont idea? It ii not.
Scattered over Client IJritnin are
numerous small centers of popula
tion in which, from time iunnoin
otinl, liquor was never made or bold.
The two Arehiepiseopal ilioceses of
York and Canterbury arc divided
into parishes, in a large number of
which the sale of intoxicating drink
is prohibited. In that of Canter
bury alone, such piohibition paiishcs
number over two thousand. About
twenty years ago, when thu evils of
tlio liquor business were first scii
ously discussed in tlio Kritish Par
liament, the clergy of tlio Cliuich of
England in convocation assembled,
in a petition invoking legislative
interference, drew the "attention of
Parliament to this fact, and invited
a comparison between the morality
of prohibition and non-prohibition
parishes. So much for the age of
I know of several centers of popu
lation founded in England and Aus
tralia on the prohibition plan. Visit
ors to Sydney know the pretty sub
urban borough of Woollahra, about
a square mile in extent, in which the
proprietor, Sir Daniel Cooper, will
not permit liquor making or selling,
and the effect can be seen at :i
glance by the contrast this little
Eden presents to its adjoining bor
oughs where liquor is sold.
The value of prohibition on a
laige scale can best be estimated
from its results in the State of
Maine, where it has been in force
for about thirty years. I quote the
following, probably from the pen of
Horace Greeley, showing what was
thought of the Maine law in the
fifties. Under the heading "Pro
hibitory law," the New Yoik Trib
une had the following editorial on
Oct. 8, 1853:
"The Maine law or Prohibition
is a necessary result of the progress
of the age a world's law which
broke out in Maine, by one of thoso
apparently accidental circumstances
which so often give rise to a uni
versal movement, but which must
have come foith somewhere else if
not there. Those who would stay
its progress might as well under
take to abolish the fundamental
truths of mathematics and chem
istry." The same paper bad the following
in an editorial on Dec. 17, 1852 :
"The reasons for absolute Pro
hibition may be briefly summed up
as follows :
"1. It is impartial.
"2. It rests on a clcai moral
It can be enforced.
It embodies no new principle.
It (the Maine law) docs its
"(! It is popular."
I quote the following from ex
Governor Dinglcy, of Maine, who is
known to be a reliable man. Ho
has long been the conductor of one
of the best newspapers published in
the United States. For State news
it is almost unequaled. This gives
assurance that he fully undcistands
the subject. In answer to the state
ment of a man who professed to be
acquainted with the failuie of the
" Maine Law " Mr. Dingley said:
"The charge of gentlemen inter
ested in the liquor intciest, that,
'Prohibition is a failure in Maine,'
lias been disproved too often to call
for the repetition in detail of the
ofllnial statistics so often published
by temperance papers, but studiously
ignored by those who stand as the
defenders of the dram-shop. It is
certainly surprising that the liquor
interest should everywhere manifest
such bitter hostility to prohibition if
it 'fails' to interfere with the liquor
traffic. The published proceedings
of the Liquor League and the
Brewers' Congress, and even the
speech of Mr. Clausen denouncing
prohibitory laws, afford most con
clusive evidence that Prohibition in
Maine, as well as in a hundred coun
ties in Georgia, does seiiously dimin
ish the sale of liquors. Two ycais
ago statistics were obtained of arrests
for drunkenness in Maine dining tlio
preceding years, and it was ascer
tained that they averaged only four
to every thousand of the population,
and these were mainly in the cities,
where Prohibition drives neaily nil
the dram-selling and drunkenness.
The arrests for drunkenness in tlio
cities of Maine wore 2,4 C8, but in
the remaining 480 towns, with a
population of 501,253, only 181.
It is noticeable that the latio of
criminals diminishes, as a rule, in
proportion to tlio extent that Prohi
bition is applied to a State. It is
noticeable also that while the latio
of criminals to population has quad
niplcd in the Union, since 1850, in
Maine it has only doubled. The
census statistics of other ciimcsdo
not afford an intelligent basis for
comparing minor offenders, bocause
acts prohibited and punished in
some itcs arc allowed in otheis,
For example, in Maine dramsliop-
kcepcrs nio icnL lo jail, but in Kow
Yoik City elected to high olllcc. I
vonturo to alllrni that no Stale In the
Union has a higher standard of
morality, or a less number propor
tionately of gambling hells, houses
of ill-fame or pandeicrs to ice, than
1 would like to give the statistics
of Connecticut, in its cxpciicncc of
the "Maine law" fioin 1851 lo 1872,
and its subsequent caiccr under
license, but must defer it until
Hot a Bene and I can ariauge for a
special issue of the Bn.i.iniv. hi
the meantime 1 will be happy to
afford Nola Bene the pciusal of
State statistics which may help him
to "a correct understanding." Per
mit me, however, to give one sen
tence of Governor Button's com
ments on the State returns of 1885:
"There is scarcely an open giog
shop in the Stale, the jails aie fast
becoming tcnantlcss, and a delight
ful air of security is everywhere
enjoyed." "When we idled upon
the ages in which the liquor busi
ness has held sway, the universal
appetite it has cieated for itself,
the State patronage and legislative
nursing it has leceived, and the
rank and file of those interested in
its existence, it must be confessed
that the proposal to suppress it is
one of the boldest of our time. But
this is emphatically a questioning
age, a utilitarian age, in which no
superstition should expect to escape
