for the rule to get the resolution out

"This is not a temperance question,"

the lands where it has been tried. I re

fundamental principles of our Gov

the people. If allowed to proceed with

The debate on the rule had been a
running desultory fire but with con
sideration of the resolution itself the
real heavy artillery was unlimbered
Representative Hobson,' author of the
prohibition resolution, led off with a
dramatic demand for its passage. He
declared a state had a right to be
"dry," that the liquor business was an
"interstate nuisance," and that there
had never been a serious conflict be
tween Federal and state laws for pro
tection of the morals of the people. He
portrayed the devastating effect of
liquor, "a habit-forming drug whose

evils of the liquor traffic and, after

said, "to consider a proposal as to
whether certain police regulations
should be turned over to the Federal
Government instead of being allowed
to remain in the Government of ran?

Underwood declared thai the prin
