I Writer Points Out Some of the
Effects of Prohi
bition, Few persons have oven n very dim
cnucoptlun of thu magnitude of tlio
brewing business ntul tlio Important
factor It Is toilay In the commercial
and Industrial Ufa of this country. It
Is very iloulitful If tlio nvorago con
servative business man would for a
single Instance encourngo nny move
ment of nny legislation that threatens
(ho destruction of the brewing Indus
trv If ho realized tho disastrous blow
Mich action would be to tho progress
and welfaro of tho business world at
When a peoplo as a wholo aro pros
rerous then Is the tlmo w)ien "Isms,"
fads and extremo Ideas receive their
greatest encouragement or nro good
naturedly or thoughtlessly allowed to
grow and fourlsli. Only after harm
had been done does calm judgment
como In tlio surfaco to tnko In the
fcerlous nature of the result.
Lately thcio lins been n spirit of
destruction passing over this country
under tho guise of reform. In manj
Instances theso reform movements
wero Justifiable, but -In others they
hurt their conception, because of
llagrant abuses, In Individual cases,
mid Instead of attempting to euro
these abuses n course. Is pursued that
lias for Its object tho total destruction
of everything directly or Indirectly,
icmotely or otherwise, connected with
tlio said abuse.
So It Is In the case of browing busi
ness. Because of n non enforcement
of the administrate powers of a com
mouvcalth or community, low dlus
.uo allowed to exist and thrive. I lo
calise somo persons will abuse drink
ing and turn themselves Into drunken
tots, prohibition Is advocated us n
cure-all. However, It Is not the pur
pose of tlio writer to discuss prohlbl
Hon at this time, but to show to tho
peoplo at largo what ono result would
be If tho country adopted prohibition
According to tlio United States cen
sus report for 1903, tlio capital Invest

tries nro ns follows:
llrewlug and malt houses. J.'i;5,370,39'J
Iron and strel mills, blast
furnace, steel works, and
rolling mills 930,327,833
Cotton goods il3,llil,i;55

Paper, etc. 277,144,171
Agilciiltural Implements.. 18(1,710,700
Slaughtering and meat
Tho ubuvo couiparntlvo statement
Is cited In order lo show tlio position
tlio brewing Industry holds among tlio
most Impoitant commoiclul factors of
the country. It stands today ns the
third greatest Industry, in far as capi
tal Invested Is concerned, In tho Unit
ed States. This tnlilo can bo verified
by any skeptical poiron by Fending for
Iliilletln No. .17, Census of Munuf.ic
turcs, In 1905.
All person at nil coiivcihuut with
business affairs know that lluvpapital
invested in tlio browing luflunusH Is
dono so peimnucutly. The Inuistmcnt
has very little value unless tho Indus
try la In operation. II Ih thcrofoio
apparent that an Investment of almost
$000,000,000 Is at tho meicy of the
"so-called" tempeianco movement
What would bo tho cllcct If nn Indus
try of this magnitude were utterly de
stroyed for destro)cd It would bo If
riohlbltlon wero enforced? Tho de
struction of this ono Industry would
.leavo In Its wako a trail of desolation
In which the wrecks of u score or
mora other Industries, Involving hun
dreds of moio millions of dollars
would would bo Btrown. Among those
latter Industries would bo tho cooper
age manufacture, tho glass and bottlo
fuctorlcs Ice machinery manufacture,
tho hop Industry, tho barley Industry,
the malt Industry, brass and cooper
supply housos and manufacture, beer
bottling machinery manufactories and
many other Industries directly and In
directly connected with tho brewing
It can bo readily scon that tho do
Btructlou would loach nearly u billion
dollars, and jet there aro a vast num
ber of apparently conservatively
minded peoplo who Bit back und com
placently wulch tho Bpread of a move
ment that lias for Its very object tho
total destruction of so valuable an
unset affecting tho f tit tiro continuation
of tlio progress and prospcilty of u
Does nnv ono for a moment Imnglno
(hat tlio financial condition of tills
country would lomnln unruffled dur
ing tlio wilting out of a billion-dollar
Investment? Imagine tho cutting off
at ono blow Hie annual s.ilu of $000,
000,00(1 or more of manufactured
products, In wiping out a markot for
the ealo of Jauj.OOO.OOO worth of agri
cultural und other raw products; In
forcing Into tho Idleness huudieds oC
fhoiisauds of deserving employes, and
In cutting" off $100,000,000 fiom tho
levenuo of our national government.
Is thero any law of God or man that

Of course, Iho writer anticipates
that tho I'rohlbltlonlst will call atten
tion at once to the millions of dollars
that tho people of this country might
save it they did not purchase tlio
pioduct made by tlio browing Indus
try. They would claim such u use
less expenditure. They would forget
that tho hand that pays for the prod
uct Is liv no mentis tho satno hand
that Is employed In biluglng the piod

tho product docs mi voluntarily jet
Iho Prohibitionist by law would pro
vent him from exercising this privi
lege. The man v. ho gains his liveli
hood is producing the product, the
Prohibitionist would nib of his right
to earn a living and deposit his prop,
erty Interest. All this ho would do
In the name of law.
Much more could bo said pro and
con upon this point of thu subject, but
after nil Is said and done, thu fact
remains that Prohibitionist would
wipe out of existence all tho millions
