Hero Is the testimony of two of
tho prohibition leaders themselves.
Hey. Dr. Jloldcrby, ot Atlanta, nn
ardent prohibitionist, said Inst win
ter: ''Tho ICKlslaturo Is afraid to
stand by Iho very Inw which It enact
cd twelve mouths ugo. Atlanta has
become n laughing ttoi.lt and n stencn

This confession must hnvo been ery

that the Almighty wng on the side
of prohibition. Asslstnnl miperin

Lcaguo utters this wall: "lleor

what docs It mean when twenty
severt carloads of beer nnd whisky

Klchards, It means, In the ffrst place,
that there aro n good many thirsty
people In Atlanta, ';uul In llio seionit
plnte, that, our prohibitory law Is
a humbug. Other leading prohibi
tionists speak, In tho samo 'strain as
the two just quoted. Conditions In
Atlanta are a sample of thosa tha
oblaln all oer tho Btnte.
Just n word nbout prohibition un

writer Is very famlllnr with the
woiklng of prohibiten In a number

Island, anil from his own observa

tan testify to tho fact that In every
one of these "dry" towns, prohibi
tion has boon n disgusting farce
dvery time It has been tried. In the
writer's own town Iho record or pro
hibition may bo summed up In the
ndmlsjlon uf.the local Anti-Saloon
teadorj lhat "auybo.iy can get all the
liquor ho wants- In this town under
either license or no-llcenso." That
n6-llcense has failed to accomplish
any good on !,ong Island, may be
Inferred from the fact that at tho
elections last sprfng, every town on
the Island wnB carried for license by
a decisive majority. The Antt-Sa-tobn
League mudo the fight ot Its
life, but It was ofno uso. The peo
ple knew all about ihe "blessings
of nroblbltlon. and tUoy concluded
that tlic haipina enoush. The Pro

Many and various are tho reasons
why prohibition n this country has
procd a failure, The following con-
felderallonn wl reveal n few of tho
more general reasons.
Prohibition Is nn attempt to de
prive men of what they believe to bo
an Inherent right. The qucMlon of
Individual rights Is the underlying
Itsuo In this whole controversy. Ma
jority rule Is, ot lourse, a sound po
llflc.il principle, but It Is olivlom
Hint the application of this principle
must be confined within rensonsble
limits. If n majority hni n right to
say to n minority: You shall not
drink beer, nnothdr majority has tho
right la say to another minority
Yotf shall not drink tei. Now, If
the people in any State or town
should tako It Into Ihelr heads to
oiinct a law prohibiting tho use nt
tea, what a fearful howl would ro
up from tho camp ot thij V, (' T.
II., and what nn uncnWablo Jnh the
o moots would hnvn In nltemiilliiR to
onforco such a lawl "What, deprive
us nt our right In scivn lea nt our
mothers' meetings and. parlor ho-
rlahlcs! Why, It's an outrage
"Oh, but, Rood ladlps. wp. Ihn ma
jority, hnvo thoroughly Investigated
this matter, and un have found that
lea Is veryi Injurious. In fnot. it's
a poison, look nt me tiioiisanns or
women that'havo koiic down lo ten
topers' graves! Look at the army
of Innocent little children1 that hnvo
been left motherless," ptc. etc, As
a matter of fact, many experienced
phvstclnnn believe thai tea nnd cof
fee enuso quite as much trouble In
the world ng ulcohol. Tho "temper-
oneo" people will Tclnrl: "Yes; hut
thero Is a wide dlfforcUco between
beer nnd ten." Of courso there Is,
and that Is Just why so mtny ppoplo
prefer tho beer. Hut thero Is no dif
ference hotween tho right to drink
thn one nnd the right tn drink the
other. Kvorywhcro and nlwnjs, out
side ot Islam, while drunkenness hns
neon condemned, tno mmleraio use or
alcoholic beverages has been n com
mou custom nnd has been regarded
as the Inherent Tight of the Indi
The use ot alcoholic liquor) Is nnd
hns nlwnyu been considered sot only
legltlmnte ns a bovernge, but It Ib
consecrated nnd hnllnwed In tho
most i-olemn nnd weighty rite of the
Christian Church. Now you can not,
by a mere law, eradicate, n. senti
ment nnd destroy an Institution that
has stood for ages, and that Is w
ncepiy rooieii in our wunio mcuu.B
iiiu. iToniiiiiiuii roiiueniiis ijiq con-f
stlcnce, tho JudRment nnd the-soclnr
habits of countless generations of tho
most highly civilised, progressive"
and moral peoples. Moreover, prohi
bition passes condemnation on a
great branch ot Industry thnt hns1
been recognized throughout all ages
as leRltlmnto, nn Industry In which
somo of thn most venerable nnd hon
ored religion orders of the Chris
tian Church have beon nnd nro to-
day engaged. Prohibition nccessirl
ly fnlltJ hcraiiBO It makes no dlscrlm-,
Inatlon between uso and abuse. It
arbitrarily mnl.es a legal crime of an
act which Is neither wrong In Itself
nor contiary to tho rights and Inter
ests of society, llecnuse two or three
men use liquor to excess, prohibition
would compel a hundred tempernte
jnen tb follow tho ruio of totnl ab
stinence. One mnh Is lame; nnd
tneroforo all his neighbors must uso
Again, prohibition has failed bo
cause it Is wholly negative nnd de
structive. You can not remove an
effect until you remove the' csuso.
You can not abolish the liquor traf
fic until j ou abolish the tourio of
tne truffle. It lu not the liquor traf
fic that creates the demand for liq
uor; Jt Is the demand for liquor that
creates the traffic. And Just k long
as the demand continues, Just so Ions
,wll tho supply of liquor bo forth
coming In ono way or another. The
'attempt to abolish the liquor traffic
by a prohibitory law Is as futile ni
would bo the attempt to dry up n
river by building n dam. prohibi
tionists seem to Imngllio that they
nre.dealliiK only with tho compara
tively few liquor dealers; whereas
they aro dealing with the vast mul
titude of men that nre determined
to uso liquor. They fell uij that tho
saloon Is n curse, Well, be that as
It may, tho practical question Is.
what blessing does prohibiten fur
nish as a substitute? Absolutely
none, unlets It be the W. C. T. U.
mothers' meeting utd tho weekly
prayer meeting. These Institutions,
excellent as thoy are In their place,
Ure hardly adapted to satisfy tho so
clal needs ot the masses. Students
of social science, men who hnVo
spent icars In observing and study
