Publisher Who Fought
for Wets “Takes It
All Back”
‘Miles of Empty Stores’
Have Failed to Ma
Forced against Its will, because
of the success of prohibition In
Washington, to espouse the dry
cause, the Seattle Times now come*
out with an editorial In which it ad
mit* that it “fought its damndest”
to save the saloon, but after seeing
prohibition tried for sii months,
takes back All it said in the cam
paign. The editorial, written and
sljgned by the publisher. MaJ Clar
ence Hrettun Blethen. says in part;
"Well, we've had six months of
prohibition, and I can t find those
miles of empty stores. In several
states, three of which are Montana,
California and Missouri, advertise
ments and news articles are appear
In* dally in newspapers, much simi
lar in construction and tone to the
advertisements and arguments
against prohibition which appeared
in the columns of the Times prior
to the ‘dry’ election in Washington
“There isn't so much being said
about the evil effects of prohibition
In Kansas as was said in the adver
tisements that appeared in Seattle.
Perhaps this Is due to the fact that
the men responsible for the ‘wet’
publicity have found out what I
have—that It isn’t safe to base any
arguments against prohibition on
conditions In that state. On the
contrary. I have become convinced
that the results of prohibition in
Kansas are about as powerful argu
ments for the ‘dry* as they could
possibly desire.
“The Times admits it was wrong
when It said, during the campaign
against prohibition, that the en
forcement of the statutes would
mean miles of empty stores In Be
attle, reduced bank clearings, re
duced bank deposits, reduced ren
tals. reduced realty values and gen
eral business depression Six months
ago prohibition went into effect.
None of the dire things prophesied
for the first half of the year 1916
has occurred. On the contrary Se
attle has prospered wonderfully.”
