TUU jUl.STION Ol' Till. II T.
So we said, since the liquor trnfllc
is too Dimly utnbciUlctl in society and
in polities to be eradicated, let us
make a proDt from it. Let us de
mand ahlgh premium on the iniquity :
let them pay us well for tho privilege
of destroying the bodies and souls
of our brothers and sons, for tho
ruin of families, for the broken
hearts of women, and the 100,000
yenily victims of the trnllle. Let us
demand a high license and thus
regulate the abomination. To our
surprise the rum seller smiled at
that. Nothing pleases him better
than to have his business legalized
and made l expectable. Said Mr.
Chcczum, a liquor dealerof Indiana
polis, "I believe most assuiedly that
when a saloonman pays for a license,
that makes it right for him to sell
liquors. If you pay for a steak, do
you think you ouugiit to eat it? The
license puts it on a legitimate basis."
Another saloon keeper of Cleveland
says, "What we arc after is a lawful
standing as a legitimate line of trade.
Wc ate willing to pay the lav, but
we arc bound to be piotectcd. I
belong to the Liquor-Dealers'
League, and I lcprcscnt the feeling
of seven-eights of tho whole mem
bership." Do you object to high
license? some ono asks of a liquor
seller "No, if it is not exorbitant.
You see it clears out ninny of the
small fry, and docs not decrease at
all the amount of liquor consumed.
Of course, that is all the bi ewers
and distillers care for. It makes no
difference to them how many saloons
theic are, so they sell just as much
liquor. Then restriction curtails
some of the features of the traffic
which make it offensive." High
license meets the views and protects
the very men whose 'business it
should be designed to curtail. But
that which is acceptable tothctrafllc
is the very thing that should not be
acceptable to the mass of the people
w ho oppose the traflic. .
There arc other fatal objec
tions to high license, at some of
which I can only hint briefly.
1st. It is wrong in piinciplc. If
whiskey selling is wrong and deplora
ble at llftv dollais, it cannot become
virtuous and commendable at five
hundred dollats. If it is ciiminal,
as we believe it is, to give another
a poison which will destroy his body
and soul, no money paid to license
a man to do so, can lessen the crime.
2nd. High license has proved to
be a iailuic in practice. Statistics
to show this are so numerous that
no one who is willing to be convinced
can fail to find them. A high license
is usually set at either five hundred
or a thousand dollais, the latter is
veiy high. While such a sum may
close a few of the lowest groggeries,
it enables the gilded saloon to pies
ent gi cater attractions, which more
than compensate. Besides, the pro
fits of the business are so great, th.it
no taxation has ever been reached
that they could not afford to laugh
-3rd. High license gives the busi
ness an appearance of tespcctability.
The time was when whiskey selling
was considered as respectable a
business as any other. But that
time has passed. One of the most
encouraging Antilles of the present
time is that the whole thing selling
and drinking is becoming disteput
ablc. But a license seems to lift
the saloon into respectability again.
It sets it upon the samu footing with
any other legitimate business. And
the lcspcctable saloon with its cut
glass and mirrois and works of art
is as truly the gate to hell as the
groggeiy, and much more attractive.
"Will 3'ou walk into my parlor?
said the spider to the fly."
4th. One of the stiongest argu
ments of(thc friends of high license
both hero and elsewhere is that the
money thus received adds greatly to
the lcvcnue of the country. But
from whom does the money come
which pays the license which is sup
posed to reduce our taxes? Does it
come from the liquor dealer, or from
the hard earnings of those who can
least afford the expense, and from
their already impoverished homes?
Evei lasting shame upon a Christian
land, bo it there or here, which will
thus consent to become a paity in
this iniquity which breeds poverty,
insanity, idiocy and crime, which is
an enemy to God and man; which
Mr. Gladstone says has slain more
than war and pestilence and famine
Since, then, moderate drinking
tends always downward; sinco the
beer and the wine fallacy are ex
ploded ; since, in fapite of our tem
perance conventions and f-ocletics
and all efforts to leach the public,
tho liquor trade nourishes and glows
lich and bold; since license low or
high Is a deception and a suate:
what shall wo do?
How can wo be otherwise than
convinced thnt the only just, the
only wiso courso is tobtiiko at tho
root of tho evil ; prohibit instead of
license; lestiict rather than regu
late. While wu labor with prayers
and tears, and infinite patience to
uplift and reform the victim, let us
show no mercy towaid the mur
dcier. Tho prohibitory element in
tho, high license scheme is its only
redeeming quality. Local option,
prohibition on n small soale. may
servo ns n schoolmaster to lend us
to fcomethlng bolter. But U is
national prohibition of tho manu
facture and sale of all intoxicating
drinks which commends itself to all
true reformers as the only solution
of the great problem. Wentlall
Phillips said in 1881 : "Wherever it
(prohibition) h.is been tried it has
succeeded. Friends w ho know claim
this. Enemies who have been for a
dozen years ruining their teeth by
biting files, confess it by their lack
of arguments and lack of facts."
The Supreme Cojirt of the United
States in 1878, Mlirmcd in very dis
tinct and unmistakable terms the
right of a State to enact laws, pro
hibiting the manufacture and sale
of intoxicating liquors. Says Judge
Catron, "If tho State has power to
restrain by license to any extent,
she may go to the length of piolu.
biting sales altogether." To object
that "public sentiment" will not
sustain such a law, is but a subter
fuge. Let it be the aim of all tem
perance woikcrs, to unite their
efforts to obtain good laws by such
wise teachings as will uplift the sen
timent of those about him. ''Ah I
but a man's reach should exceed his
grasp. Or, what's a heaven for?"
