Evils -Of Prohibition
Is Theme Of Divine
REVEREND WILLIAM WASSON
'During tho ikcttlH) Immediately pro-'
Codln ttlo Civil War, a great "temper.
ando wave" swtpt over tho country.
Within a "period of nve yean, eight
states, viz: tho nix New England
states, Michigan and Nebraska, adopt
ed prohibition. .Now York, Indnnn
and Wisconsin aluo enacted prohib
itory laws, .which, howover, novor
went Into effect, having boen declared
unconstitutional by tho highest courts
In tlioBo states.. '
Now, again, .after a lapse of fifty
yearn, tho country Is witnessing an
other "temperance wave." which has
already" risen higher than Its predecos
sor. Nor Is the1 end yet In sight.
While In somp Sections of the country,
tho' "wave"' has ilpont Its lorco' and
appears to bo receding. In other sec
tions It Is Increasing In volunio and
strength1. Thcro Wrc, at present, eight
states In which statutory prohibition
obtains four In tho -South, three In
tno wcbI and ono In New England.
Undor tho Local Option system, a
numb'er Of other slates nro bclnir nrn-
hlbltlonlscd on the Installment plan.
No) long ago It was estimated that
sa mns were being closed; nt tho rate
of thirty a. day nearly 11,000 n year.
uio proniDition leaders boast tha',
while ten years ago thcro were only
six million pedptd living In "dry" ter
ritory, there aro now thirty-eight mil
lion. U prohibition and temperance
bo tho same' thine, wo nre rprtnlnli-
mnklng prodigious strides toward the
millennium. But sober-minded peoplo
havo no faith In fho professions and
promises of prohibitionists. Fifty
years ago, tlie leaders of tho crusade
thought they saw the dawn of the per
fect tiay, when there would not bo a
dram 'shop 'nor a drunkard In all tho
land. They wero confident that the
problem of Intemperance, which had
perplexed and baffled mankind for
thousands of years, was as good as
solved. Tho great dragon was about
to be stain and his dead carcass hurled
Into' tho bottomless pit. Ilut It turned
out to bo alt a dream. The dragon
was not slain; he was not even serl
oiiBly wounded. If ho disappeared at
all. It waB only to botako himself1 to
tho cellar and await tho passing
storm, Jpihfij:ourioof,a Jaw jrcan,
tho "temperance wave" passed away,
and the frensy and hysteria that caus
ed It, and was caused by It, died out,
The crusade riot, .only did not solvu
the liquor problem, but It complicated
tho probloyi wjth. ncw.dlfllcultle. Tho
states that adopted tho prohibitory,
s j stem soon found themselves con
fronted with two evils Instead of on
the old disease of Intemperance and
the new "remedy" of prohibition. And
now, the'succesHorn of the 'men that,
rallied around tho standard of Nenl
Dow are making precisely the samu
promli.es and predictions that weio
mado of old. They assure us that tho
present movement nlcans business.
They prophesy that this wave will not
s'ubsldo until It has swept over every
foot of American coll and has dono to
"mm" traffic what Jehovah did to
the Egyptians In the ncd Sea.
Prohibitionists hava Simplified the
llquor.problem at tho expense of truth,,
reason and common, experience. In
stead of sultlngtho remedy to the dis
ease, they have tried to mako tho dis
ease conform to their predetermined
The liquor problem Is one of tno
most complex of all social problems.
It docs not stand out alone, simple,
dlBtJnct and isolated, as prohibition
ists would hayo ,us believe. It Is at
once a'moral, an economic, a physio
logical) a, psychological and, In Its final,
analysis, a purely parsonal problem.
It I tontalns many elements and li
volvos many perplexing difficulties.
When wo look below t,he surface,' and
study this problem In Its deeper as
pects, we f)nd that Its roots are Inex
tricably Intertwined with those of oth
er Boclal problems. So that genuine
and thorbugrTtbmperanco reform must
be conducted along many different
The liquor problem Is not exclus
ively nor chiefly a legislative problem,
and henco It can,not be solved by leg
islation alono. Tho evil of Intemper
ance Ik pot caused, though It may bo
aggravated, by bad Jcglslatlon, and It
cannot ba rpmoy6d, though It mny bo
lessened,, by goojj, legislation. The
main lines of temperance r6form, tho
most potent agencies for the building
up of moral' character (and moral
character j Is tho basis of temperance
In all things), He whdtly outside the
scope of legislation. Legislation has,
of coufso, Its 'ptift'to play ind a not
unimportant, part in any compre
benstve program of temperance ro-
forjir, but when legislation encroaches,
on -tho domain of (he church and the
home, when It Ventures to act as a
substitute for purely social and moral
agencies. It not only falls to ad-
compjlsh any good but causes tho
greatest hapi. Speaking generally',
tho work that legislation can du In the
nora sphere Is of a negattvo char

IN PEARSONS "MAOAZINE
largely a matter of moral aid iioclnl
Liquor legislation must ucccisarll)
ollow one of two general pollclbx. it
may aim at tho abolition of the liquor
traffic, or at tho regulation of tho
traffic. These two policies are ex
treme opposltes at every point in ev
ery feature. The object of ono'ls' ro
kill, that of tho Ather Is to cure. 11
Is on this broad question of general
policy that tho peoplo are dllded to
day. No legislative system has ecr been
more extensively nor fslrly tested than
that of prohibition. During, the lait
sixty years It has been tried on the
stato-wldo scale In many different
sections of the country and under the
most dherse social and political con
ditions, the periods of tjlal ranging
from three yoars In Nobxijisk'a Jo flf,ty
three yoars In Vermont. Ily 'its record,
by what It has done and by what it
has not dons, prohibition must bo
Judged. On uvery pngo of that record
from beginning to end, nro written
the words failure, folly, farce. No-wli-ro
and nt no time. In, all It his
tory, has prohibition accomplished a
single one of Its avowed objects. No-
whord has It abolished t,ho liquor trof-
nc; nowncro has It prevented the con
sumption of liquor Uor lessed the evil
of intemperance. Neither as a statci
wide system nor under Local Option
has prohibition over made the slight
est contribution toward the solution
of the liquor problem. The one soli
tary service Ihnt It has rendered to
society Is that of furnishing a warn
ing dxnmplo of the supreme folly of
attempting to leglslato virtue Into
There could bo no stronger evidence
of tho failure of prohibition than the
fact' that seven of the eight states that
adopted tho system fifty years ag6,
hate slnco abandoned It andjgone back,
to tho policy of license and regulation.
Tho peoplo of these stales adopted
prohibition In good faith. They honl
estly and earnestly desired to; Slpo out
Intempernncc. They realised that In
temperance was 'directly onlndlrectly
tho cause of much crlnio, poverty nnd
disease; that It was a financial burden
on the state; nnd that It was a hind'
rnno to material prosperity ,and to
moral progress. They' thought It wai
a better policy to abolish than 'to li
cense! and regulate a traffic that'sccm-i
ed to them to be tho root ami source'
of this o II. Now, to claim that pro
hibition wax- eten. measurably suc
cessful In these flates. that It accom
plished oven a little good, Is to Insult
tho Intelligence of the peoplo of New!
England. 'No sensible person can lit
lleve that these seven state ,oiild'
have deliberately repudiated 'a system
that they had adopted In high hope;
and with high moral purpose: lftheV
had found that that system' was ntak-1
Ing for sobriety, prosperity' and good
In low of tho'fnct that It Is always
easier to secure tho enactment than
the repeal of laws of a reputed moral
purpose, tho repudiation of prohibition
by these states is all tho inoro sig
nificant. The only conclusion consist
ent with reason and common sense
Is thai the people, after years of bitter
exporlcnco, fbund'tuat they had built
on fnlse hopes, and that conditions!
wero not only no better but far worso
undor prohibition tban they had been
under the license systcnw.IUls also
very significant that the states that
were swept off1 their feet byfthe' pro
hibition wave fifty jears ago, are
among those that nro being least af
fected by tho -present agitation. And
even Maine, which la tho, only ono of
these states that has retained prohi
bition all theso enrs, Is, actually show;
Ing unmtstakablo signs of genuine ro;
pentance. It Is conceded on all i.lde4
that a decisive verdict against prohl
bltlon would havo been rendered nt
the laqt election In Maine, when re
submission was prominent Issue. If
It had not been for tho fact that It
wag a presidential year. Prohibition'
Is generally least popular where It Is
If prohibition really prohibited, tho
tact ought to bo reflected In" the fig
ures of tho U, 8. novenio Depart
ment. Dut. according to tho govern
ment reports, tho uso of alcoholic
lfquorB actually increases with tho
spread of prohibition. In 3, tho
year tho Anti-Saloon Lcaguo wbh op
ganlzed, the per capita consdnlptlon
o( malt and spirituous liquors In the
wliolo country was IG.u and l.lu gal

six million people were living under
prohibitory laws, tho figures -wero 18.8
