"Is tobacco going to have its scalp
added to tt-.e belt of the prohibitionist
beside tha tof the lamented but. as
yet rot altogether late alcohol?" is
the question asked by Garret Smith
in an article in the current issue of
The Writ' retches the o(ncitlusin
that while there has been increased
agitation and legislative activity on
the subject o ftobacco following the
success of the drive for prohibition
of liquor the efforts of reformers seek
ing to abolish tobacco have no general
support. This opinlioll is based on the
result of tho onestionnaires on the
subject sent. out to iewsiaper eiitors
of the country by the Press Service
Company of New York City.
The questions askea were:
(1) Do you favor the enactment, of
laws prohibiting the personal use of
tobacco by adults ?
(2) In your judgment does the gen
eral sentiment of your community
favor such legislation?
(3) Is the use of tobacco personal
ly objectionable to you?
No arguments accompanied thc clues
tions and from their form it was imb
possible for any editor to determine
the attiude of the questioners.
Out of 12,518 editors questioned,
7,847 replied according to the sum
mary given. These elitors, it is esti
mated, represent a combined circula
tion of 21,870,046. Of the 7,847 editors
replying, 7,393, or 95 per cent, repre
sent public sentiment in their coni
munities as opposed to anti-tobacco
legislation. Only 269 editors, or 3
per cent of those replying believed
there was any considerable sentiment
favorable to tobacco prohibition.
There were 174, or 2 per cent, in
doubt, while 20 failed to record their

"It is of special interest to tiote
that 569 editors in answering the first
question, personally favored such
legislation, although only 260 of them
reported that. public opinion also fa
vored the prohibition of tobacco-an
indication of the conscientious effort
made by the editors to distinguish pub
lie opinion from their own personal
opinions." the article continues.
"The highest percentage of replies
reporting public opinion favorable to
prohibition of tobacco came from Utah
where 42 per cent of the editors
thought the public were for such a
movement. Utah is the only state
which Has since adopted an anti
cigarette law. The result was fore
cast by several of the editors who
stated, that the influence of the Mor
mon church was against tobacco. The
Mormon church is also strong in Idaho
which is the other state where the use
of tobacco was recently prohibited,
but the governor has sighed the bill
just passed, in which the prohibitory
legislation is repealed. In this state
89 per cent of the edlitors estimate
sentiment in their communities as
against tobacco prohibition, which,
nevertheless, is 6 per cent below the
average reported opposition.
