lj FACT is a real state of things, FALLACY is an appa?- ,
cntly genuine but really illogical statement or argument.
■t ( ~ . :
! TRACTS reflected from news in the daily are
r proving most embarrassing to Prohibition
FALLACIES. For instance, where a dispatch from San
Francisco, Cal., states that exactly 18,756,148 persons
passed the turnstiles at the Panama-Pacific Exposition, a-JF
and of this great nuAber only 33 were arrested or ejected JI
for intemperate use of alcoholic beverages. Practically jjjjtjy i^f
! perfect order prevailed during the ten months ci the £r||s&
jT rpKIS temperance record of the Exposition, at which j i J li jfT j ; L Ml
IX drinks of every kind were easily obtainable, seems 11
more remarkable when comparison is made with the gl
arrest records of several conspicuous Prohibition citi?s in
which the sale of liquors is forbidden. The daily transient p-j
population at the Exposition, for example, was about E
/^ or \ 60,000, nearly equal to the resident population of Port- *|
/ land, the largest city in the oldest Prohibition State—
r J*\ Maine. Comparison gives the following official figures of
V- arrests for drunkenness and disorderly conduct within a , ■
s?' period of 10 months, viz.:
1 Total arrests at the Exposition for intoxication, 83
j Arrests £cr into: . ication : n » c v y " Portland, Me., 3067
' '3OGI H/ number of arrests for intoxication at the Exposition
j] v an d the number jailed for the same offense in "Prohibi
tion" Banger, Maine. That city has only 26,000 popula
j ] tion, less than half the daily attendance at the Exposition,
|| and while there were only £3 arrests for intoxication dur- ,/ X^ v
i J ing 10 months at the Exposition, 2G30 persons were /
locked up for similar offenses in the city of Banger. ( \
WHEN the salient FACTS of o facially-authenticated - 1 \
figures are brought into bold relief, the ARKESv FOR
FALLACIES of Prohibitionists become all the more f* , s
apparent. * H aBAN9oR
