See No Harm in Drinking And Con
sider Measures to Prohibit it an
Interference With Personal
A special from Washington states
that a high official of the immigra
tion bureau is authority for
th.e statement that the prohibition
movement in the south will seriously
interfere with efforts to get immi
grants to that section of the country.
"It is none of my business,'" he
said, ".although I have been cooperat
ing, as far as possible, with the immi
gration bureaus of the States of South
Carolina, Virginia and others. So
soon as the class of people being
sought in the south find out that pro
hibition laws encumber their person
al liberty they will refuse to go south
and- those now there will leave. The
German, Austrian, Swede, Finn and
nearly all other classes of Europeans
will not go where they can not get
beer. Besides that they res;nt any
interference with what they shall eat
or drink, believing these are matters
of personal liberty. 'ney do not hold
the view that so light a drink as beer,
wen talen in moderate amounts and
under circumstances to which they
are accustomed, is either a sin or
crime. They look down upon whiskey
drinking in this country as a moral
weakness to which Americans should
not be addicted, and, probably would
not care what happened to the ar
dent -spirits, but they object to being
deprived of beer. In Finland, for in
stance, the government and the intel
ligent classes encourage the use of
beer as keeping down th-e heavy
drinks, which threatened to increase
in consumption, and Finland is con
sidered the model temperance nation
of the earth.
"Personally I think a great mis
take is' being made in the south. If
these prohibition laws are being en
acted to make the negro a sober cit
izen, the enror will7 be- discovered in
a few years. -The negro will become
an imbiber of the cheapest and most
fiery grades of mean whiskey, and I
will venture the predietieM thit in
prohibition states .of theN~outh crime
will increase. It is history that pro
-hibition runs out the mild drihks like
beer and brings ip the .worst of the
ardent class. The negro naturally
likes the stealth that goes with blind
tigers, and it will not be long before
he will take the 1ead in defiandce of
law and hypocrisy. He will copy af
ter the white man, it is true. When
he sees prohibition laws defied he will
pay less attenition to other laws.'It is
well known that in many portions of
the south where prohibition is- in
force through local option the negro
has turned to cocaine and drugs and
has become so worthless that he is a
."What the south should do to help
the negro be a better citizen and to
encourage the immigratiopi of useful
and int-elligent European workmen is
to enact laws that will favor the sale
of beer and the lightest of wines.
This course is now advocated, in many
states of the country by distinguish
ed churchmen and thinking citizens
who want to find a medium between
the radicalism of prohibition and the
extreme of wide open conditions. Com
missioners from Finland who recently
came' here. to study lieense laws in
this eountry were horrified at what
they dfry in the prohibition state of
Maine and went back home with re
commendations that their own laws.
showing partially to the light drinks,
were the best in existence. They saw
more drunks in Maine cities than any
place else they visited.''
