it is asking'the Stato to do work
which the pulpit and the moral
phijosopher has not propares the'
peoplo to accept. Tho recont con
uct of municipal 44nthoritios and
prohibition loaders, vhen the Su
promo court declaro the Stato un
der prolubition laws, is an illus
tration of the prohibition dolus
ion. Tho State must accept con
dlitions as thoy.exist and make the
best, disposition of questions as
they arise. Then since prohibi
tion is prematuro and impractica
blo, who shall control the liquor
business is the question, and this
is the real question in issuo, all
others being morely side issues.
Experienco has shown that muni
cipal authorities woro satisfiod
with tho rovenues and left tho
business almost entirely to the
onterpriso and conscience of the
saloon men. The saloon system
was obloxiolus to tho masses of
the People, anld they abolished it.
Then wihat was to tako its placo
and who was to control the liluor
business. Tie peoplo in the rural
districts boingin the majority at the
polls, woro tirOi of municipal con

the liquor revenuos, ((c'ided that

profits. Being in the majority,
they hald the right and they oxer
cised it, and that is tho secret of
aill this howl agaist the dispon
sary system. Ito is not the lovo of
the men who drank whiskey mod
(rately or excessively, that inspires
the antagon ists of tho dispensary.
It is the loss1 of the pr1fits, that.
troubles their philanthropic hearts,
