VICE IS CAUSE OF INEBRIETI
One of Effects of Excessive Use 0
Alcohol Is Loss of Self-Control
Analogcus to Insanity.
In an article on "lnebriety," put
lished in the Outlook, the writer ha
this to say:
"Inebriety, though a disease. ha
been produced by vice and leads t
crime.
"The appetites and passions shoul
be under the control of the will, an
so guided and directed by the reaso
as to promote physical, mental an
moral health. When they are not th1
under the control of the will and az
not thus guided by the reason, the r
sult is intemperance. There may 1

condemnation is the first step towa.
reform. -So drunkenness is a sin ax
the drunkard is a sinner. He al
is not to pity himself as a victim, bl
to condemn himself as a sinner. Tb
self-condemnnation in his case, as :
the case of the glutton, is the fir
step, and an indispensable ste
toward real reform.
"But while intemperance in all I
forms is a sin, the disease which
produces is not a sin. Gluttony mg

intoxication, and then send him o1
again into temptations which he
powerless to resist, is inexcusab
folly. If a man has brought insani

cure it. Inebriety is, in this respe<
analogous to insanity. It is not
be punished; it is to be cured. Tb
is none the less true because inebi
ety is almost always, as insanity
frequently, the result of vice. Sociel
should distinguish between thei
three-vice, disease, crime-which
often confounds. The remedy for ti
vice of intemperance is largely mor;
and intellectual, or, in the broad sera
of the term, character building. TI
remedy for the disease which tha
vice produces is partly moral and par
ly physical. For the crimes into whic
the vice often leads the intemperal
person, society must, in self-proe
tion, provide some form of punis:
ment.
S"But, in our judgment. punishmen
whether for the vice which produc<
the disease or for the crime whic
follows, should always be reformator;
not vindictive, in its character. TIl
distinction between sin and disease
not easy to draw. Jesus Christ habi
ually treated sin as a disease whic
-he had come to cure. When he we
condemned for associating with pul
licans and sinners, he replied thi

true that poverty produces drunke
ness. How far the boy who ha
grown up in a family where there
no control of the appetites, who ha
inherited from the father and mothe
a diseased appetite, who lives in a
atmosphere which intensifies the cra

or improper food further intensiie
that craving-how far he is a guilt
person to be punished, how far a di.
eased person to be cured, is a quel
tion to which no definite and final ar
swer can be given.
"What is true of drunkenness
true of other sins. They are part!:
the result of deliberate, intentiona
violation of law. They are partly th
result of ignorance, ill-breeding, bai
inheritance. and almost irresistible sc
cial forces. Society has tried fo
many years the experiment of curia
sin by punishing it. It is high time
that society tried the experiment c
curing crime by removing the cause;
which produce it and by treating thi
criminal as a diseased or insane per
son, to be sent to a hospital for reme
dial measures.
"We can put our whole philosoph:
on this subject in a sentence, thus: I
should be the object of society, no
to fit the punishment to the offense
but to the offender. Or, in anothe:
sentence, thus: The object of all pun
ishment should be curative, not puni
tive; its object should be to punisi
crime only that it may cure crime
first in the individual, next in society
"There is no offense to which thi:
principle can be and should be mor<
immediately and constantly appliec
than to the offense of drunkenness.

The wee Tmeand Death and Fame - to a meeting place they came
- And in brotherly affection they saluted each by name.
Ly
~e"Of my labor do you ask?" Fame confided, "This my task:
eI am twining wreaths of laurel, I am weaving wreaths of bay
S On the path where Glory leads men are doing mighty deeds
eAnd the guerdons of their striving I award to them each day.
S To the victors I must give tokens that their work shall live,
I have led them to their honor through the trials of the fray."
~:Then a knowing smile came slowly to the sober lips of death;
"I have made my share of victories," he said beneath his breath.
t
"I~ have led men," Fame went on, "in the days and years agone;
e Ihave thrilled them withmy brightness, as a star that sends its gleam
. From its biding place on high, till of all the arching sky
h 'Tis the only lurmg jewel--'ts the star of which men dream.
S And today I write the song set in measures full and strong
t Of the men who rise supremely where their weaker brethen fall
S I have made the victories of the lands and of the seas,
I have made the goal of glory--I have made them one and all."
.a Then it was that Death said softly, with a countenance sedate:
" "Was there never any victor through your foster brother Fate?"
'r
S"No, 'tis I," continued Fame, "I who carve in stone the name;
e I who wreath in gold the story of the daring and the deed;
It is I who am allied with ambition and with pride -
It is I whofll the flagon to the man who holds the lead."
S"It Is you?" asked Death and Time. "And for you t.hey fall or climb?
And for them you work the laurel and the bay in rounded weaves?"
Thmen they turned to their way-and the laurel and the~ bay

Then Time sat, and fell to laughing, with his hour glass on his knees;

ticed. It is most unfortunate tht
this basic fact is not kept more prom
inent before the American people
whose anti-trust sentiment is only the
expression of a revolt against high
costs.
"It is relief from the high cost 0
living that the country demands, and
the agitation should be, first of all,
for tariff reduction. With that accom
plished, the trust question will take
care of itself. Without it, neither
prices nor monopoly will be con
trolled. It may be doubted chai
cheaper tobacco will result from the
disintegration of the tobacco trust
but It is certain that It would follow
the lowering of tobacco duties. It i?
unlikely that steel products will fal
much In price if the steel trust is die
solved, but no one will question tha
they would be materially lower if thA
duties on imported steel were rie
duced. Indeed, the proposition Is si
obvious that it admits of no argu
ment. Lower the tariff and Inflatloi
will cease. Monopoly extortion, ei
cessive capitalization and high cost
will disappear. Competition of th
proper sort-that of America with th
whole world-will be restored and th
natural development of our superic
resources and of our commercli
ability will follow."-New York Timei
