PROHIBITION FOR YANKS
But All the Alcohol That For
eigners Want, Free of Tax.
Tho prohibition fanaticism Is
working out charmingly for tho fa
natics. Alcohol is subject to a tnx
of $14 por gallon If used in the
If mado In tho United States and
shipped out of tho country It pays
no tax nt all to Uncle Sam.
Seo how It works.
The following Associated Press
dispatch in that omluontly dry organ,
tho Chicago Tribune, for Sunday,
April C, 1919, tells how tho thing
Peoria. 111., April 5. The largest
slnglo Hhlpmont of alcohol over
mado In tho United States was sent
out of Peoria todny by tho Groat
WestQrn distillery for Sweden, whon
n solid train of thirty-six cars con
voyed 350,000 gallons to a seaport.
Another shipment of tho sninu call
bor Ih to bo mado on Tuesday.
Tho shipment was valued at ?012,
500. Under tho law all alcohol ex
ported Is tax exempt; otherwise
tho shlpmont would bo worth ?5,250,
000. Tho alcohol was shipped In 55 and
110-gnllon steel drums.
tho public 1b entitled to know It, and
tho builders should bo advised," said
Chairman Dalloy. "Wo expect to tuko
up tho comont situation and pos
sibly touch on lumbor. If wo can got
flguros on factory cost wo can easily
Ilguro up freight and Jucroaso In
wngo3 and other things and find out
whether tho present retail markot
prlco la too high."
Sonator Dalloy is inclined to think,
from tho ovldonco taken, that tho
markot prlco of common building
brick, $12 a thousand, Is a bit' high,
and that tho brick mon havo long had

other which llxos prlcos. Ho is not

ovor, and will not recommend lowor
