youth against moral danger, and to
teach tho lesson of unselfish scrvkt'.

Tho Outlook for September 23 con
tains the following lltumlnatlvo ex
pression on prohibition In Maine, In
which, It inny be noticed, surprfslngly
little attention scorns to bo paid to
tho Wool ley lino of thought:
From day to day, last week, reports
from the vote on constitutional prohi
bition In Mnlno oscillated between
"wet" nnd "dry." Tho lirst report
was that thn provision adopted In
18S4, which made the prohibitory law
a part of the Stnto Constitution, was
repealed by a popular majority of
about nlno hundred votes. Thu next
report wns that Inter returns hnd
changed this Into n small majority
for tho retention of the provision. Still
Last night as I lay sleeping

Inter reports wcro Hint tlio returns
were In dispute. It will tnko nn olll
clal count to set tho matter at rest.
Whntetcr tlio final result may be, the
majority on one sldo or tho other will
be a few score, or, nt most, a few
hundred. Krrors In copying or in nils
understanding telephone messages, or
In addition, account very largely for
the uncertainty. For example, the re
turns from one town were In' somo
wny reversed when they wcro trans
mitted by telephone, with 'tho result
Hint a change of four hundred votes
In the plurality was made. Somo
facts, howeer, nro plain without re
gard to these errors. The most strik
ing fact Is that tlio twenty cities of
tho state returned a total oto of
nearly two to ono for tho repeal of
piohlbltluu, nnd, with tho single ex
ception of the city of Calais, each city
icturns n majority for repeal. In sev
eral cities of tho Stnto this majority
is overwhelming. In llangor nnd Iw
Islon, two of the three largest cities
of tlio Stute, and lliddeford, Hastport,
Ellsworth and Old Town, tho majority
lor repeal was hut threo to one, and
In I'ortland, tho largest city In the
Statu, Augusta, tho capital; Water
vlltc, Hath and other cities, (lie major
ity for repeal was very large. Wheth
er prohibition remains In tho consti
tution of Maine or not, It enn hardly
remain In fact When tho voters of
n State nro so evenly divided ns they
hno shown themselves In this vote. It
Is hardly possible, to say tho least,
that tho prohibitory law will bo per
manently enforced. There Is no rea
sminblo ground for believing that f.O,
'.!)0 people (to clto tho iinolllclal fig
urea published a day and a half utter
tho polls had closed) can Impose their
will with regard to State prohibition
upon C0,4iri people. The closeness of
tho voto explains tho practical failure
of prohibition In Maine. It has some
times .been said that fulluro to en
force piuhlbltlon Is no moro of an
argument against prohibition than
lallurc to secuio conviction against
burglars Is an nrgument agnlnst burg
lary as n crime. If, however, tho people
of any State wero virtually eiiually di
vided on the question whether burg
lnry should lie made n crlmo or not,
thore would be llttlo ground for bo
llovlng that tho law against burglary
could bo enforced. Wo do not bcllovo
that prohibition, oven If It sun Ives
this vote, can long endure under pres
ent conditions in Maine.
