THE LIQUOR PROBLEM.
ls There a Solution ol this Very Important
Bishop Potter's very Leave, though
I think ill-advised presentation of his
views on lite liquor question, has
served one' purpose, whieh every
manly stand taken in behalf of what
a man regards as right must always
accomplish, It makes other people
consider seriously the same problem ;
and outof a multiplicity ot' thoughtful
OOUnsel comes wisdom.
The result of many years consider
ation of this very difficult problem
leads me to the belief that it is en
tirely possible tor the most extreme
radical in favor of temperance, and
thc liquor-drinkei most conservative
of his rights, to unite. I will try
to state the problem in a simple form
p I. In thc United States there is
expended annually for liquor tito
sum of over $1,500,000,000.
II. In the United States, each
year, there aro made some hundreds
of thousands of drunkards, (illino
asylums, bringing misery into homes,
ami causing semi-idiotic children to
be born into the world. All, without
exception, acknowledge thc immen
sity of the evil of drunkenness.
III. In addition to life money ex
pended yearly for liquor, tho United
Skates annually loses through ineffi
ciency of its citizens, caused by
liquor, a sum that may roundly be
calculated :d three hundred millions
IV. .Many men aro not disposed
to put on their neighbors the burden
of absolute prohibition. Tin y con
cedo the right to drink liquor,
V. All mon, except those engaged
in tho business of selling liquor, de
sire to restrict tho evils of tho liquor
traffic These evils are :
Tho corruption of youth.
The baneful influence exercised
Upon our political conditions.
The deprivation and suffering
oatised to women and children.
The loss in national wealth.
The question, then, is :
What mothod of procedure will
grant the liberty demanded by cor
tain citizens, and at the santo lime
prevent tho corruption of youth, pre
vent the corruption of the citizen
ship of the country, and finally the
waste of the country's resources ?
The answer to all this seems to lie
in one direction, and one direction
only. Absolute prohibition is con
demned by a considerable portion of
the community S unrest rioted license
is condemned by a still larger por
tion of t he communit y.
The mean between those i wo lies
in turning over the liquor traffic to
the government, as has already been
successfully done in a number of
All liquor should besohl from State
It should bo sold only in "pack
ages" to be consumod elsewhere than
in the salesroom.
No sales should be made to minors.
The liquor should ht! of the best
The prices charged would he more
reasonable than those made at the
present time; they would still Ix
large enough to give the government
:? revenue several times that now de
rived front the sale ol' liquor.
This plan hoing carried out, tho
public secures tho following results;
birst, Tho temptation to youth
to drink in saloons located em
every convenient corner, timi to
treat their friends, and in turn be
treated-acknowledged to be ono ?d'
tho greatest evils-would bo at once
Second, We would no longer have
in tho community a very large class
of mon taking tho most active inter
est in politics, whose success in busi
ness depends upon making drinkers
of tim youth and upon corrupting
adult men and women.
Third, Tho independence of the
citizen, and his right to bu\ liquor,
would bo undisputed.
li ni addition lo this governmental
monopoly of tho liquor business,
which, as already stated, has been
so successfully introduced in a iiiiin
?Ler of States, is added the instruc
\f ol youth m temperance, and the
organization ol temperance societies
in the public schools, as is done un
der tho direction ol' tho government
id Belgium, we shall have tho rising
generation safeguarded to the ut
most against tho evils of intoxication.
At thc present time we have four
classes of people taking part in thc
h irst, Those whose business it is to
make rt profit of tho sale ol' liquor.
Second, Those who aro in favor
ol' absolute prohibition.
Third, Those who believe that tho
right of tho oili/.en to buy liquor, if
he chooses, should be preserved.
Fourth, Those who recognize fully
tho immense evils done by liquor,
and arc anxious to bring about tl
practicable reform in tho?situation.
ICxcept tho first class, that em
bracing those persons who profit by
the trafile in liquor, every one of the
remaining classes uould get top;' thor
on this basis (d' State control (d' the
liquor t rallie. Its effects would be
immediate and far-reaching.
lt is a practicable reform, and if
urged by all those now taking part in
thc endeavor to solve the liquor
problem,('(Mild be successfully carried
out within a brief number of months

Tho only one of the constitutional
amendments yesterday submitted to
tho people for ratification, about
which there was any question, was
the amendment to article 8, section 4,
paragraph I, concerning local taxa

of this amendment was to grant to
militia and school districts, as well
as to counties and municipalities, the
right to tax themselves for school
purposes. Tho amendment itself did
not provide for such a tax, but sim

that lhere was need foi a hastening

that in addition to legislation there
