Jt is retorted that on Jan. r, 1904
the Northern Pacific railroad will
en
force a rtt!e prohibiting the use otf ib
toxicants by employes whethef on

prising
move
in view
of
that has been taken on a number o
leading roads
of
the United States
conspicuously among them being th
Rock Island system. While the en
forcement of the teetotaler rule ma
be a drastic course the results attaine
by similar action on the part of othe
roads amply justify
the
Northern Pa
cific in doing likewise. The fact seem
to have been thoroughly establishei
that enforcement of rules against th
use of intoxicants tends to increase th
efficiency of the employes. This alon
is sufficient reason frrr extending th
scope of the policy to all the railroad
of the UnUed States.
It
is a practica
business measure, of economic value
the railroads and to the public an
means greater safety to patrons of th
roads enforcing the rule.
In
the prat
tical enforcement of the principle tha
sobriety tends
to
better service in an
legitimate business lies one of th
greatest powers opposed to the fostei
ing of the liquor traffic. Let busines

neiice in the interest of more effective
service and it will not be so difficult

nets of law. The same reasons whic
make for better service among railwa
employes on account of total absti

other laborers, with perhaps some ex
ceptions. With all of the public school
