SHOW STARTS AT 7:30 FEATURE STARTS AT 8:15 F FOR DEBAT H6 STATE WIDE PROHIBITION The very Important Issue of state wide prohibition has been raised. 'A campaign In favor of a constitutional amendment will be shortly instituted. This, like all other important ques tions has two sides, on each of which are found honest and intelligent per sons. The Republican has decided to . pro vide for a reasonable discussion of this issue in its pages, allowing to each side at least a half column dally for signed articles, for which there will be no charge. No anonymous article will be published. It is only stipulated that the com munications for and against prohibi tion be just and fair and that in no case shall there be any wild and ex travagant statement that will in any way reflect upon the reputation of Phoenix for good order. It is suggested by The Republican that either side, desiring to avail it self of this offer of space, name a committee through which all matter relating to the issue shall be trans mitted. In such case, all communica tions Teceived at this office from other sources will be rejected. We believe that this arrangement is ne cessary to keep the discussion within reasonable lines. No paid advertisements from either side will be accepted'. Sail Amusements j LION THEATER DRY AMENDMENT EXPLAINED The first sentence of the dry amendment is as follows: "Ardent spirits, ale, beer, wine, or intoxicat ing liquor or liquors of whatever kind shall not be manufactured in, or introduced ii to the state of Ari zona under any pretense." Not one of these terms has any thing whatever to do with hair ton ics, cosmetics, face washes or any thing else of like character because, they refer simply and solely to bev erage liquors. They do not include medicines of any kind because no' medicines bear any legal definition that will come under the above terms, and no court is going to con strue any of these terms to include medicine of any kind. t'nder this amendment Peruna, Hostetter's Bitters, Wine of Cardui, or any other of these preparations containing alcohol in varying quanti ties can be sold the same as now. While some people use them, as bev erages they are not legally defined as such, and cannot be embraced in the terms of the- amendment. The federal constitution, which gives to congress sole power to regu late Interstate commerce, prevents the enforcement of just one feature of the above law and that is con tained in the words, "Introduced in to the state of Arizona under any pretense." Late decisions of the courts give interstate carriers the privilege of delivering all kinds of liquors in dry territory, and the state law cannot interfere to prevent such delivery. But, when delivered, the iquors be come subject to the state law, and If used for illegal purpose can be seized and destroyed, but if used for a legal purpose the state law can not interfere. As this amendment does not make it illegal to drink liquor nor illpgus to manufacture medicines, tinctures, essences, chemicals or pharmaceuti cals, the natural conclusion is that anyone can import all the liquor he wishes so long as he uses it for, le gal purposes, which, of course, in clude medicinal, mechanical, culi nary, art and sacramental purposes. ' It is idle for the liquor forces to attempt to read into this language a meaning that is not there and j mislead the people by falsifying the facts. The second sentence in the amend ment is as follows: "Every person who sells, exchanges, gives, barters, or disposes of any ardent spirjts, ale, beer, wine or intoxicating liquor of any kind, to any person in the state of Arizona, or who manufac tures, or introduces into,, or attempts to introduce into the state of Ari zona any ardent spirits, ale. beer.

This language attempts to cover, and does cover, all of the possible contingencies, by which the liquor forces seek to evade the law in sell ing intoxicating liquors. Here again nothing is attempted except to get after the beverage liquor traffic. There is not one word that indicates any attempt whatever to prevent the sale of medicines or the use of wine for communion purposes. The only part of this amendment which cannot be enforced is that which is included in the words, "Or introduces into, or attempts to in troduce into the state of Arizona," for this again is nullified by the federal courts and would be, of course, inoperative. This is the whole of the prohibition features of the amendment. It will thus be seen that to any etudent familiar with the use of the English language and with legal phraseology the amend ment is very simple and direct, and that its whole motive, consists in providing no loophole by which the bevearge liquor traffic can escape the tolls of the law. Eliminating those - portions of the amendment which the late federal decisions render inoperative, the pro posed law would remain as follows: "rdent spirits, ale, beer, wine or intoxicating liquor or liquors of whatever kind shall not be manu factured, in Arizona. Every person who sells, exchanges, gives, barters, or disposes of any ardent spirts, ale, beer, wine, or intoxicating liquor of any kind, to any person in the state of Arizona, or who manufactures any ardent spirits, ale, beer, wine, or in toxicating liquor of any kind, shall be guilty of a misdemeanor." In reading this any person of av erage intelligence will see that by no possibility could it interfere with medicines or with the use of w?ne for communion purposes. ' Those who. framed the amendment and those who are now promoting it would not, if they could, prevent the use of liquor for sacramental purposes; and the federal law is so explicit that they could not do so if they would. The liquor forces ought to be con demned for their obvious effort to excite either race or religious preju dice, and convert this prejudice to their own use in perpetuating a traffic fraught with so much of evil. A traffic that has no more to sus tain it than a false, appeal to race or religious prejudice ought to go down in disaster. . O. P. RTXF.HART.
