THE LIQUOR QUESTION.
VICU'S OF ONE WHO WAS i?IAV
Ti:AltS A llEAI.LIt.
Acrccinout on Soma Valuta vllh Clilef
JnnUofiJiKia-AbolUli the Trent
Editor Bulletin. In your
issue o the 15th inst Chief Justice
Judd favors tho public with his
opinion ion tho liquor question,
and attaches a report .of tho ar
rests for drunkenness mado during
Bovpral years. Theso figures in
thomsolves amount ito nothing or
vory little, as tho learned judgo
failed to show in how many cases
tho arrests and convictions were
executed on ono and tho Bamo
person and consequently tho
stated increase does not prove
that tho liquor habit lias clairaod
a greater number of victim b over
tho foregoing year.
Some of his ideas are roally
good, others aro entirely too arbi
trary. In number 1, confining tho
hours for tho oalo of liquor to
from G a. m. to 0 p. m. ho is en
These hours may Buit.tho pro
fessional hobo or those whoso oc
cupation allows them to absent
themselves from their place of
business for such a purpose dur
ing the day, but what about tho
mechanics, laborers and others,
whoso duties do not permit such
leisure? Suroly those areentitled
to Borne consideration in this
In number 2f he is perfectly
correct. No legitimate business
needs any hidden ontranco any '
more than Bcreons uoioro inoir
doors and blinds before their win
dows. Lot ovoryono wishing to
take a driuk of any kind go into a
saloon through the front door like
a man, and no decent person needs
to be ashamed to bo seen taking a
harmless glass of beer, otc, by
thoso passing outside. In object
ing against pictures and decora
tions m a saloon ho goes too far,
jis I prosumo that oven a saloon
keeper has a right to spond his
money as no pleases. xosiuos no
sooms to overlook tho fact, that tho
contingent that furnishes tho
drunks is rarely to bo found in a
handsomely furnished salopn, as
such a place is not congenial to
The Judgo is right in objecting
against games and sports of auy
kind in a saloon. Prohibit theso
and tlio private rooms in a saloon
and you will clour such places of
the professional sharp and hobo.
But in forbidding tho chairs and
tables in a Baloon, tho Judge
speaks of what ho knows nothing.
Lot anyone mako observations on
this point, and ho will find out
that around tho bar tho noisiest
crowd and tho most drunks aro
to bo found, while in that part of
a saloon whore ample provisions
aro made for tho seating of tho f ro
nuenters of suoh places, rarely
any disturbance occurs, for tho
simple reason that the porsons
therein ubo the saloon for what it
was originally intended a place
accessible to anyone for tho pur
pose of a friendly conversation
with tho pleasant intorludo of a
drink of what may happen to
ticklo the palato of tho individual
If changoB aro to be mado, I
would advocato tho abolition of
the gaily decorated bar. Let there
bo a liquor room, whore no ono
has tho right of ontranco, except
those conuocted with tho estab
lishment, lot all customers sit
down at tabloB and bo sorvodby
waiters with what they desiro,
and, above all, abolish tho "treat
ing system." Fourteen years' ex
perience in the liquor trade havo
convinced tho writer, that the
root of all drunkenness is to bo
found in this aboraiuablo habit.
I know of no greater absurdity,
than paying for another man's
drinks and expect that tho same
shall immediately afterwards pay
for mine, or that any man should
treat a Baloonkeopor or his barkooi -er
to a portion of their own mer
chandise; ono might as well treat
a shoemaker to a now pair of
solos. By enforcing tho anti
treating law those without moans
will bo kept out of tho saloon, the
average man will hositato to bor
row a quarter of his friend
