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
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
No paid advertisements from either
side will be accepted'.
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
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
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
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.

wiie, or intoxicating liquor of any
kind, shall be guilty of a - misde
meanor." 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
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
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. .
