PROHIBITION IN KANSAS. ?
From The Adult Student. ?
Hou. John S. l>a\vson Attorney Gen
eral of Kansas, delivered an address
at Chicago April 1!H2, on "What Pro
hibition Has Done for Kansas." Tho
constitutional amendment prohibiting
the manufacture and sale in the State,
of intoxicating liquor except for med
ical, scientific and mechanical pur
poses was adopted In November 1S80.
It has therefore, been in operation
long enough to afford a reasonable
test of the effects of State-wide pro
hibition. Mr. Dawson acknowledges
that for quite a number of years the
law was openly defied In many of tho
larger towns and cities. It took a
long and bitter fight or the people
of Kansas to convince the law defying
liquor interest that they were really
in earnest about banishing the Infa
mous trlffic from their Stale. But
they are convinced at last and for
some time the prohibition laws of the
State have been as consistently en
forced as those against other common
forms of criminal conduct. In esti
mating the results of prohibition, how
ever, allowance must be made for the
delay occasioned by this protracted
battle against anarchy, and yet, in
spite of this, these results, as sum
med up by the Attorney General, are
thoroughly convincing. Here are a
few of the more Important of them
1. Illiteracy has been reduced from
49 per cent to less than 2 per cent,
and this is confined almost entirely
to the foreign element In the south
eastern portion of the State.
2. Eighty seven of the one hundred
and five counties of the State have no
Insane, fifty-four have no feeble-mind
ed, and ninety-six have no inebriates.
There is only one pauper in every
three thousand population. Thirty
eight poor farms have no inmates. In
July 1911, fifty three county jails were
empty, and sixty-live counties had no
prisoner serving sentences, some
counties have not called a jury to try
a criminal case uuen years, and a
grand jury is so uncommon that half
the people would not know what it is
3. In 18S0 the bank savings depos
its in Kansas were $:H),000,000; today
they are $200,000,000. The State is
now tin; richest per capita jn tnQ rn_
ion, the average wealth being $1,700,
whereas tho average for the nation is
only $1,200, Missouri, which adjoins
Kansas and is rich in natural recourc
es, has an average of less than $300.
During the panic of 1907 Kansas sent
$50,000,000 to New York to relieve the
money market, while Missouri sent
4. In 1880 the death rate in Michi
gan, Wisconsin. Iowa and Kansas was
practically the same, seventeen to the
thousand. Since then death rate of
Kansas has gradually fallen till it is
now only seven and one half, while
that of the other States has slightly
5. The per capita cost of intoxicat
ing liquors in Missouri is $24; in
Kansas is $1.48.
C. It has demonstrated that the sa
loon is not a bll8ln08S, but a parasite
7. It has taken politics out of the
saloons and the saloons out of politics.
Evory political party in Kansas now
stands for prohibition, and keeping
joints, dives and broth els out of cities
is as much the business policy of tho
average city as keeping the streets
Clean, water pure, and the public parks
In answer to the question as to the
relative value of prohibition and high
license as a means of abolishing the
ovils of intoxicating liquors, Mr.
Dawson says: There is no relative
value. High license Is not a means of
abolishing the evils of intoxicating
"iquors. The only solution of the li
quor problem Is its total suppression.
High license is first of all a confes
sion that the liquor business is a bad
business. It is a bad business, and a
tax upon a bad business, a cruel, vi
cious, and wicked business, means that
the State says to the rum seller: You
are corrupting the morals of my peo
ple, you are undermining the man
hood of my young men, you are rob
bing the cheeks of my young women
of their bloom, you are poisoning the
blood of my babes, you are wrecking
my homes, filling my jails and fur
nishing a spawn for the brothel. You
are at the back of all the villainies
of the age and are turning my people
into drunkards, lunatics, and suicides,
and you make a very large amount of
money out of this Infamous business,
and 1 shall require you to stand and
deliver to mo a very considerable
portion of this dirty money which you
are making in this villainous fash
Does prohibition prohibit? Of
course not," answers Mr. Dawson.
' Neither does a gun shoot nor a ship
, sail nor a piano make music of Its
town accord. It takes a man behind
j the gun to make it shoot, a sailor to
j sail a ship, and an artist to play the
piano; so, too, with the prohibition
law. It will sleep away the years in
j the musty tomes of a law book and
never prohibit anything unless there
j are faithful executives behind It." It
has been shown In Kansas, be de
clares that It can be enforced even
in a community where popular senti
ment is against It. "It takes Just
three men," he says, "to do It, a judge,
a sheffiff, and a prosecuting attorney.
These three and no more, who fear
God and nobody else, and determined
to enorce the law?not all the saloon
keepers and brewers and all their fol
lowers and sympathizers can prevail
against them. Most important of these
three Is the judge, and that is the of
ficer to whom the liquor interests
give the most attention and the tem
perance people the least. You must
have a judge, or your law enforce
ment is bound to be ? inefficient.
