MR. EDWARDS DISCUSSES
THE LIQUOR PROBLEM
Editor Advertiser: At the request
of the Anti-.Saloon League I herewith
offer you for publication au article
which embodies the positions taken by
me in a public address- delivered some-
time ago. With your permission I shall
furnish the rest of the articles on suc
cessive Mondays. G. D. EDWARDS.
THE PERSONAL ELEMENT.
It is quite common to attack
the
saloon evil as an indefinite, impersonal,
intangible entity. I have no objection
to this method of procedure. How-
ever, it will do us good occasionally to
remember that the evil itself exists
only because there are men willing to
perpetuate it. I wish in a measure to
introduce this personal element. But,
I cannot speak of all the classes re-
sponsible for its existence. I must
limit myself. Therefore, I choose to
speak of the liquor traffic as a profes-
sion. This will require that I concern
myself with the agents of the traffic,
By agents I mean not only saloon-
keepers, but whoever from brewer
down is engaged in the trathc with a
view of supplying intoxicants to the
public as a beverage. I shall not speak
of them as men, but as agents governed
by the motives and morals of the traf
fie, as they must be if they prove ac-'
ceptable agents. We have all had
brought home to us during recent
months through the stories of the Mc-
Calls, the McCurdys and others, how a
man may be a good father, a good hus
band, a good neighbor, a good church
man and what mt, and j-et be a crimi
nal in the marts of the world. Many
saloon-keepers are not good men. But
in what follows I am willing to grant
that many of them are. Many are kind
of heart., generous to a degree, and,
aside from their occupations, accepta
ble citizens. However, if a man delib
erately chooses to live a double life he
must endure the humiliation of having
Hyde stand along side Jekyll before
the public gaze. It shall be my en
deavor to uncover his motive and let
him stand for what he is worth. This
will get close to the individual. Nev
ertheless, it will not forbid dealing
with principles rather than with the in
dividual, and such I propose to do. Let
me proceed at once to the discussion.
PRINCIPLE STATED.
To take the fruit of another's toil
without rendering due condensation
therefor is wrong. In the business
world it usually constitutes a crime.
No business can legitimately be called
a business that does not seek to render
a service as well as secure a profit. It
is permissible that service and profit
shall be kept well balanced in each and
every transaction. But it is not per
missible that service shall be elimi
nated. In fact, if either is to be given
precedence it is service which should
be accorded first place. Dr. Palmore is
right in the following definitions and
comparisons: "Business is service
with the idea of profit. Charity is
service without any idea of profit.
Crime i3 profit without any idea of
service." When a man begins to stress
profit rather than service he is getting
onto dangerous ground. And when he
goes to work to secure profit without
rendering service he becomes criminal.
The method he adopts will determine
what criminal term shall be applied to
him. If he secretlv does his work he is
a thief; if by force or intimidation he
is a robber; if by chance games or bet
ting he is a gambler; if by selling out
his constituency he is a boodler, and so
on with grafting, embezzling, counter
feiting and all such. The principle in
volved is always the same: profit with
out service; the fruitfof another's toil
without due compensation. Whether
the law has yet decreed it or not the
occupation of the mart thus engaged is
based on a criminal foundation. It is

til
a mistaken idea that guilt or crime is
always constituted by legal enactment.
That which is really criminal is crimi
nal regardless of whether the law rec
ognizes its criminality. Boodling,
gambling, slavery, etc., have ever teen
as criminal as now. But they have not
always been so regarded by law.
Therefore, if we want a sure test in
determining what is criminal we can
not depend on legal statutes. We must
apply our principle: profit without
service. If on this basis the business
cannot defend itf-elf it is no longer a
business. It is a crime. Xo amount of
legal enactments can make it anything
else. All they can do is to prevent it
being punished as it deserves,
I now wish to apply the test to the
liquor traffic. That it is prosecuted for
the sake of prof t no one will deny, not
even the liquor men themselves. Then,
the only thing v.hieh can save it from
being criminal is that it shall render
a service. Does it do that? Let us not
ask whether for the profit received
there is a due compensation returned.
But suffice it to inquire if for the profit
there is offered any real service?
THE INDIVIDUAL WHO DRINKS
First, with respect to the individual
who drinks the intoxicant. Does it
benefit him?
How about his body? Can he with
stand more cold ? Can he endure more
heat? Can lie do more work? Can he
more successfully fight off disease
What say you? What say those wh6
speak with the authority of medical
knowledge, and who are favorably sit
uated for making a close study of re
suits? Arctic, expeditions used to in
elude liquor in their equipment but
they do so no longer. They have
learned by experience that this sup
posea lortiner against cola impairs
their power to withstand cold. In our
cities where through the summer season
people are continually being overcome
with heat, we are reliably informed
that almost universally those who suc
cumb are from the ranks of the drink
ers. ery seldom is there a victim
from the ranks of the total abstainers
As to labor the testimony of Acting
Governor Atkinson regarding the dock
laborers of Honolulu, the testimonies of
colleges and universities from whence
come the leading football teams of the
country, and the testimony from many
other sources corroborate the assertion
that the body is weakened by drink so
that it cannot perform as arduous labor
or prolong it as successfully as if it
had been kept free from drink. Train
ers of the leading football teams en
force total abstinence during the foot
ball season Did you notice in a re
cent issue of the Advertiser how Ger
man writers in accounting for the fail
ure of German athletes to carry off sig
nal honors in the Olympian games at
Athens attribute it to the use of beer
which they say is "sapping the na
tional vigor, weakening muscle, caus
ing superfluous fat and devitalizing the
heart?" Then we are told that beer is
healthful. Fie, O fie! What an insult
to the intelligence of the community!
The medical fraternity is back of the
position that' drink lessens the body's
power to resist disease. It destroys tis
sue and over-excites the nervous sys
tem. It is a cause of paralysis, dropsy,
tuberculosis, etc. Therefore, it engen
ders disease. It complicates and ag
gravates typhoid, erysipelas, pneumo
nia, sunstroke, etc. Therefore, it de
ters if it does not defeat medical skill.
How well we all remember the verdict
of the physicians who gathered about
the bedside of the late Wm. McKin
ley. They said the chances for his re
covery were very much increased by the
fact that he was a total abstainer.
Life insurance companies have found
that even the modeiate drinker (who
beeause he can't see the evil effects at
once concludes there are none) very
materially lessens his chances of living

out his lifetime average. They will not
insure habitual drinkers; and in a very
comprehensive test made in England
they have proved that about 97 per
cent, of moderate drinkers die at the
lifetime average while in the case of
total abstainers the percentage is 69.
The effect on a man's body is not
different from that on his brain.
Therefore it will cot be necessary to .
dwell on the question as to whether!
the brain is helped or impaired bv
drink. Nor should it be necessary ti
spend much time discussing whether
the individual's moral sense is made
more keen through intoxicants. We all j
kno.w that the tendency of drink is to
lead the drinker into vice and crime,
For two years I went regularly every!
Sunday to the Boone county jail in Mis
souri. I met many classes of criminals
from the murderer down. In nearly
every instance tne culprit attriDuteu

was confessed that the tendency- to-
ward evil existed before drinking,
But, the better self -controlled until
diink became master. Then the
triumphed. Had drink never gjtten
the reins the evil would in most cases
forever have been kept in abeyance,
Judge Pollard of St. Louis says: "The
great mass of crimes that fill the dock-
ets of the police court are those com -
milted in the heat of liquor or which
spring from indulgence in strong
drink." In keeping with this is the
testimony from San Francisco. I quote
from an editorial in the San Francisco
Chronicle of May 5: "San Francisco
for the past fortnight has been abso
lutely free from disorder, and virtually
free from crimes of violence. There
have been no street brawls. No
drunken brute has beaten his wife. No
gamblers have murdered each other in
low resorts. Except for some dealings
with sneak thieves the occupation of
the police courts is gone.
This absolute demonstration that the
saloons are responsible for all crimes
of violence makes it imperative that
whenever they shall be allowed to re
open, their license fees be fixed at a
rate which will support the police de
partment." A little reflection will
convince one that it they are to pay
the cost of the crime for which they

diseased, or degraded.
liquor tnen, does not nelp one in
body, brain, or morals. From an
economic standpoint it destroys pro
ductive power and lessens earning
capacity. It weakens the whole physi
cal being and also leaves a man spirit
ually worsted.
Ah, but saj-s one, when a man is in
trouble or is despondent intoxicants
help him to forget his trouble. They
make him feel rich and happy. Do
they? Then weren't they very unkind
in San Francisco to deny the solace of
this great boon in the days following
the recent disaster? Yea, were they
not cruel? .When trouble was greatest
and the sense of poverty and helpless
ness keenest, instead of making every
man drop his bottle in the street, in
stead of taking vigorous action to de
stroy all the liquor available, they
should have protected the bottle car
riers and have done their utmost to
send to the refugee camps a goodly
supply of this rejuvenating elixir. In
the weeks since thev should have been
considerate enough of these poor un
fortunates not to deny them anything
as good as such a view proclaims liquor
to be. Xo, every rational man knows
that drink only adds to trouble. It
only deepens despondency. It only in
creases helplessness. Momentary de-
usion may make it seem otherwise.
But the last state of the man is inevita
bly worse than the first. Therefore, I
conclude: The seller renders no real
service to the man who drinks.
THE DRINKER'S FAMILY.
W)ell, how about the drinker's fam
ily? We can afford to sacrifice the
k drinker for the larger circle of his home
provided it is served. Can the agent
for the liquor traffic lay claim to being
worthy of honor at this point? Ilard-
ly. Conditions in no horiie are therebv

ed powers physically, mentally and
morally. They help to populate the
asylums of various kinds. Again, the
inmates of the inebriate 's home are too
often the recipients of abuse. And not
only that, they are deprived of food,
clothing, shelter, the luxuries of life,
and improved edfteational facilities
which but for drink might be provided
them. These things which are legiti
mately theirs are denied them that an
unholy appetite may be satisfied and
that the agents of the liquor traffic
may fatten. Besides this thev have to
enaure tne sname wnicn comes to sen-j
sitive souls with the consciousness of
belonging to a drunkard's family.
Should not these children, these help-

prosects for the future are injured
and their happiness for the present
blighted. Have they no claims on us
as compared with inebriate fathers and
' cormorant liquor agents?
I have spoken largely of the drunk
ard's chibl. I shall not attempt. to de
scribe the woes of his disappointed, un
happy wife. How many of them with
broken hearts are living the lingering
death! We deny them the ballot and
then put them at the mercy of appetite
and greed where they must not only
suffer themselves, but where they must
see that which is worse, the suffering
of their little ones. Who is there to
maintain that the saloon renders any
service to the drinker's family? I
think, no one.
Next Mbnday I 6hall ask and at-
tempt to answer the question: Does
the traffic benefit the community?
