A VICIOUS PRINCIPLE.
Legalizing Saloons Is Not
Anti-Saloon League on Aiken Bill.

mittee Issued u'statemeut defining the
Anti-Saloon league's attitude toward
the Aikun 1)111 increasing the Dow
liquor tax to $1,000. The statement
leads: "As an organization the Anti
Saloon league is opposed to licensing
the liquor I ratlin or to any taxation
system which is iu enVct a licensing
of the liquor t rattle. It is a. vicious
principle, inimical to public morals.
The Anti-Saloon league is guided In
Its policy by the action of tho churt-h
bodies of the state, ami practically all
of which are ou recoul against licens
ing the saloon and none of which are
on record iu favor of it. Many sup
porters, however, of the Antl-Salooir
league reulfe lliut taxation Is a part
of tho piesent policy of the state of
Ohio lu dealing with the liquor ti attic,
and bollovo that the IncieubO of the
tax would decrease the number of s;i
loons. The leagTie line succeeded In
the past onl ' 'lainplonliig iiioasuies
on which ll (llnoucy Is uot di
vided. It U u v-bt ou nil sides that
tho friends und suppoilors of the
league aie dhlded on this question;
consequently, the officers of the league
can not use the orr.anlzatlou to help
pass tho tluiiihaml dollar tax. County
local option, which has always boon a
pait or th6 legislative piogram of tho
league, should he urged for Immediate
enactment into law."
