WON'T LAST LONG
Little to be on Hand When July
Washington, March 11.-National
prohibition next July 1 will find only
about 50,000,000 gallons of liluor In
bonded .warehouses, barred from dis
losition for .beverage purposes, if the
present demand for whiskey continues
during intervening months. Officials
who have observed the effect of high
taxes in the vast believe, however, thr.
withdraiwls from bond will decrease
tinder the now revenue law, and that
between 60,000,000 and 75,000,000 gal
lons will be left In warehouses July 1.
It is conceded that it Is impossible
to foresee the effect of approaching
prohibition on the demand for liquor
to be stored away sby consumers, and
officials say a big movement of buying
event under the increased tax, may de
velop and leave the quantity of liquor
left in bond smaller than the advance
The estituates do not take Into con
si(leration liquor which may be stored
In cellars or attics of prospective con
suners. INor do they Jinklude any
stocks which wholesale or retail deal
ers may not sell before the prohibi
tion wave catches them. These are
not measurable .by any official reports.
Revenue bureau officials calculate
that at present bonded ' warehouses
connected witif distilleries, but under
lock and key of government agents,
hold less than 90,000,000 of the 200,
000,000 galons in stock when manu
facture ceased September 9, 1917, tin
der the food conservation act. With
drawals In January and February have
been less than the 10,000,000 or more
galle-s In December, according to In
.dicadons based on preliminary re
1ortF. from revenue agents.
On January 1, 112,000,000 gallons of
distilled spirits iwere reported in bond,
aincuding 6,600,000 gallons not avail
able for beverage purposes. About
15 per cent. of those figures must be
deducted as allowanee for leakage and
evaporation from barrels. On Decem
her 1, the latest dtite for wleh item
ivd lires are available, the stock
of distillel pirits in hond 'was distri
huted as follow;: Whiskey, 108,846,
0100 gallons; rium, 606,000; gin, 2,338,
000; alcohol, 5.760,000; reflied alcohol
or "high wines." 3,744,000; and brandy
The normal rath , demand, mens
ured by withdrawal from bond, had
been between 4,500,000 nd 6,000,000
gallons a month until Inst October,
when withdrawals jumped to 8,358,000
In November they were 9,597,000, and
in lOcecmIber it Is esti tmated they ran
over 10,000.00o gallons, while in Jan
nary antd Felriiary, indicatrons are
Ithat tie (14emand tprobably was nearer
9.01,000 gallons. Most of this lI quor
was taxed when taken out of the bond
ed *waehou;e at tihe rate of $3.20 a gal
lon. Under the new revenue act, the
rate is dolbie, amiiouintin gto $6.40.
Consequently thlie increase amounts to
$3.20 a gallon or 80 cents a unt, ani
he aggregate tax Per (iuart In $1.60.
By terms of the pending bill pro
viding for en forcemient of prohibit ion
unider the eonst itutitonal amendment
effectivye next .lanuary 16. thme presi
.dent . would be0 emplIoweed to app~ro

stock of liquor left unused in ware
housnes. The price to lbe paId for thIs
