MAINE PROHIBITION AS PRACTISED
The story ot tho Maine Prohibition
law has been told In one ot tho pop..-
lar magazines of tho month by a man1
best ablo to relate the facts with an-1
curacy and comment with unpreju-
diced common sense.
Holinan Day Is the author of tho
work. Mr. Day has como beforo tho
leaditiR public outside the Staio ot
.Maine as a
writer of Interesting '
stories, lu his own
suite witcro ne is kiiowu nuiuuuu.y TIl0 farmors t Ml,,no 8m,,y stand

certainly without prejudice against
tho prohibitory law, for ho Is a Re

Mr. Day In his nitlclo emphasizes
at tho outfet tho fact Hint the prohlb
ltoiy statute hai necr been enforced
throughout tho State, nnd tho opinion
Is cxptctscd In this connection that
general enforcement of tho law cnu
not bo expected lu tho future. "Thoro
Is no better outlcok for Maine," do
tlires Mr. Day, "then erratic, spas
modic, and sporadic enforcement."
When and where local feontlment de
mands It the law Is enforced; other
wise various modes of evasion am
practised. In bhort, tho Malno law
In Its actual operation I. nothing
muio tlnn u clumsy kind of local op
tion under tho guho of Stato prohibi
tion. It Is a pretentious fraud.
The best that can bo said for tho
law is that It has outlawed tho open
saloon and thus protected tho young
ngnlust tho lure of tho drink habit.
Hut this advantage has been puichns
ed at a big inlco. Tho Hon. Charles
K, Ubby, leader of tho Portland bar,
sums up tho other sldo of tho case
thus: "Tho good tho law has dono Is
more than offsot by the ovlls It has
InouRlit with It. It has bicd hypoc
rlsy.encouiaged pnrjury In our com ts,
led to corruption of our oftlelals, giv
en piomlucnco In public llfo to n poor
set of politicians, has destroyed tho
frankness lu statesmen that ennobles
men In other States, ami has not been
cffccHvc. This demoralizing statute
was conceived lu fanaticism, born of
hypocrisy, cradled in corruption, and
nourished on graft "
Tho extraordinary proialenco of
drunkenness In Maine, which Is one
of tho most conspicuous features of
tho prohibitory rcglmo, Is graphically
portrayed by Mr, Day, Arrests for In
toxication tho past year In Malno cit
ies averaged 25 Yj to tho thousand ot
tho population. In Portland arrests
woio over 55 to tho thousand, nnd In
Hangor 100 to tho thousand. Tho
iivcrngo for all New Kngland Is only
IS V to tho thousand. Mr. Day
"In considering tho ways for Ret

kitchen barrooms places wheio

homes, and In I.owlston, where they
