ACARFOR UDRUNKS"
A New Feature of Suburban Rail
roads in Stockholm.
THE GOTHENBURG SYSTEM
I Its Friends Deny That the Cars In
dicate That the System la
a Failure.
"We fear that the Gothenburg is no
more preventatlve than the Maine system j
of prohibition," remarks the New York
Sun in coinemnting on the dispatch from !
Stockholm, announcing that the adminis- j
tration of the state railways had ordered a ;
special car for intoxicated persons on every
suburban train at night. Other words
uncomplimentary to the system are ut
tered in the same paragraph. It is quite a j
mistake to assume that there is anything i
in common between the Gothenburg sys
tem or any of its variations, and the pro
hibition laws of the various state in Amer
ica, say the Scandinavian system's advo
cates. The principles involved in the two
general systems are vastly different, they
add, reasoning thus:
Whereas the subject of the one system 13
to prevent the sale of intoxicants, the other
Is Intended only to regulate tho saloon or
barroom. It's aim is to abolish the gilded
dena of vice with their many allurements In
* the form of music, bright decorations,
games of char.cc, free lunches, wine rooms
and the thousand and one other devices to
attract patrons. It's purpose is also to
abolish the low divfes, where crimes are fos
tered and the vlciojs find therr haunts.
Not everyone willing to live and grow rich
on the miseries and weakness of his fellow
men can become a liquor dealer in Norway
or Sweden under the so-called Gothenburg
system. Th« manager of a liquor place is
on a salary and has no personal Interest in
the buninesa. He Is simply there in a semi
official capacity to enforce the rigorous liquor
laws. Moreover a considerable share of the
earnings of the business is devoted to various
public charities and enterprises.
The institution on the Scandinavian penin
sula corresponding to the British taproom and
tho r American saloon by comparison is so
: different aB to be scarcely recognizable. It
has not abolished drunkenness, but it has re
duced the per capita consumption of in
toxicating beverages to a very marked degree.
To such an extent have some communities
been liberated from the thraldom of the
liquor «v» that they have closed even their
Gothenburg ••saloons." This is especially
true of several Norwegian cities. Thus while
the primary idea of the system was not
pix?ventative. the practical results tend in
that direction.
It is quite unjust, say the Gothenburg j
system's friends, to consider the recent or- j
der of the state railway administration as '
a reflection on the efficacy of the Gothen- j
burg system. If It shows anything, they
say. It reveals a humane consideration for 1
drunken persons who in the past have been j
promptly ejected from the trains at the j
first Btation, sometimes with the ther
mometer far below zero. While the
"drunk" car Is a boon to the victims of the i
liquor habit it is a much greater one to
the general public to which an intoxicated
individual is always a nuisance. A sep
arate '■oniimrtment for the class would be '
appreciated on almost any railway.
KOLTHOFF'S NOTES
The Explorer Is Getting Ready to !
J'ubliah l*i em.
Gustave Kolthoff, who was at the head of '
a Swedish scientific party which cruised in
Arctic waters last summer, 13 now en
gaged in the inevitable task of getting his
notes in shape. This expedition distiu
guished itself by returning to civilization j
'with two musk oxen, a very rare feat.
The party started in a little vessel from
the northern coast of Xorway on June 4
last, and four days later they arrived at
the icy coast or Spitzbergen, where they
visited some of the deej> fiords and clus
ters of islands. Then they steamed far
northeast to the waters between Spitz- |
bergen and Franz Josef Land, where they
reached the southwest coast of Prinoe
Charles Island, which, it will be remem
bered, was visited for the first time two
years ago. They found there an archi
pelago of considerable extent which had
never been explored. They procured a
great deal of information about this al
most unknown region, and the account of
it which they will soon publish is ex
pected to be very interesting. They were
disappointed, however, in not finding any
more relics of the lost Arctic aeronaut,
Andree. One of his buoys had been picked
up in the neighborhood of King Charles
Island, and this was believed to be the
likeliest place to find other objects that
might throw light upon the fate of the
explorer.
JIST LIKE MASSACHUSETTS
Women Are in the Mnjolr<> in \or-
way fop Various Causes.
One of the natural consequences of emi
(ration has been to make a greater pre- ;
ponderance of women in Norway than in
almost any other country in Europe. The
census of 1891 showed that there was an
excess of women over men of almost 70,000
while In 1876 this excess only amounted
to 43,000. As in all countries, the births
of males exceeded those of females, but I
as the majority of emigrants are young
men the proportion of the sexes was more
strongly reversed here than eJsewhere.
Another cause for the excess has been the
number of men engaged in seafaring. On
account of the large coast population and
the active share they take in the fisheries,
deaths from drowning are comparatively
more numerous In Norway than in other
countries. Naturally this affects the male
part of the poulation, whose percentage of
deaths from accidents is much larger than
that of women. Of the 8,927 deaths by
accident in the ten years from 1880 to
1890, 6,047 were due to drowning.
Norway "Will Not Mourn.
Professor Oscar Alin, who filled the chair
of constitutional law in Upsala, died the
other day, aged 54. He advanced the legal I
theory that the foundation of the Swedish-
Norwegian union was the treaty of Kiel
Quite a "school" adopted this theory and
many of the younger members advanced some
extremely radical arguments to establish
Norway's inferiority as a political division to
Sweden. Professor Alin was the foremost
of the "storsvenske" element in Scandinavian
politics, and on that account no one in Nor
way will regret hlg death.
That his ideas, though persistently pro
mulgated, were rapidly losing ground in Swe
den, is very evident from the annual re
views published by the big dailies of Sweden
at New Year.. Without exception, these pa- '
pers, some of them rabid critics of every- j
thing Norwegian, spoke very encouragingly
Of the friendly feellug between the two coun- ,
tries and the bright prospects of even a better !
understanding.
"Svenck Teater."
"Smaastadsllf" ("Provincial Town Life"),
is one of the merriest farces ever written by
a Swedish author. Fru Agrell has created
for it a number of odd and comical figures
and & dialogue extremely witty, but with- i
out coarseness or vulgarity. The scene of :
the play is a small town of southern Sweden, .
in the time of crinolines- and ruffled shirt
fronts, and the Swedish Dramatic Club will ;
spare no effort to make the toilet* accurate
and picturesque at the performance, Feb. 3.
The plot of the play is simple and consistent.
The acting mayor of a small town, who, in
spite of his temporary dignity, is but an I
illiterate municipal councillor, has been
touched to the quick by an anonymous cor- ,
respondent in the Sando Post, written by a
townsman. The irate mayor resolves that
Nosvick, his own little community, shall give
a theatrical performance for charitable pur
poses, because the rival village of Sando
nas successfully given one. The play se
lected, the actors, scenery and costumes are
all of the mgat domestic kind and furnish
the material for a whole evening's entertain
ment of solid fun.
Ibsen Remains in Norway.
Henrik Ibsen has been living for half a
year in great seclusion at Sandefjord Nor
way, preparing the material for a new work.
Askea if he Intended to remain In Norway,
he said: "Yes, in all probability. My cor
respondence is so -extensive that this alone

erally Si«n the Petitions
of Consent.
Special to The Journal.
Clinton, lowa, Jan. 25.—Petitions are In
circulation and Clinton will soon have
saloons operated strictly within the lim
itations of the mulct law. The strange
part of the movement is that it has the
indorsement of the ministerial union, and
church and temperance people are gen
erally signing the saloon petitions. In
every other county or city where such
petitions have been circulated the min
isters have stoutly opposed them. It is
understood that petitions are to be cir
culated in Dubuque, Davenport, Burling
ton and other river cities, and the mulct
law put into force.
Trouble between the gamblers and one
of. the saloons precipitated the situation
that led to the agreement to install the
mulct law. L*st faU a man came here
to open a gambling house. At that time
there was a place operated where it v.as
understood games were permitted. The
new man rented rooms over a saloon
where the local gambler had been a part
ner, but threats to bring gambling before
the grand jury caused the new man to go
elsewhere. The grand Jury took up the
subject and indicted the men who were
conducting the old place, and they blamed
the saloon-keeper over whose saloon the
other place had intended to locate. The
gamblers went over the river to Fulton,
and the wife of one of them began in
junction proceedings against the saloon
keeper blamed for having the gamblers
indicted.
Then lawyers began other cases, in one
of which a man named Dewey was the
plaintiff. On the trial it was shown that
Dewey had offered to take various amounts
to settle, and he was arrested for at
tempted extortion, and is now in Jail. He
has been indicted for conspiracy. Sev
eral other cases were brought by attor
neys whom the saloon-keepers claim are
"settlers." It was at this time that a
temperance worker came here to begin a
series of meetings, although his coming
was independent of pending litigation.
Then came the beginning of the move
ment to havo the mulct put in force. A
conference was arranged between the
Liquor Dealers' association and the Min
isterial union. Committees representing
both bodies met and canvassed the situa
tion. The ministers asked that the laws
be enforced, and the representatives of
the dealers expressed a willingness to cir
culate petitions and invoke the protec
tion of the law. The ministers said they
would give the dealers twenty-five days
in which to canvass the city and have
their petition acted upon.
The saloons are getting ready to come
under the mulct. Screens are to be re
moved, private rooms dispensed with,
rear doors closed and billiard and pool
tables removed.
The grand Jury is again in session, and
for a week has been examining witnesses,
trying to find evidence upon which to
base Indictment of alleged wine rooms.
But it is understood it has found nothing
definite. The local police claim the wine
room stories related in temperance meet
ings are largely wrought out of imagina
tion. Slot machines may be investigated.
The grand jury had a call from six mem
bers of the Ministerial union. "They
wanted the wine rooms looked after and
keepers of slot machines indicted, but
asked that the saloon-keepers be un
molested till they have had time to get
up their petition and have it properly
acted upon.
