The ad ministration officials recognized from the beginning that public opinion and the 'desire of the great majority of the people to have the law properly enforced will have a greater influence for enforcement than the agents the internal revenue bureau can place in the field. - , With only $2,bQ0,000 a year to work on it will be impossible to put more than four hundred men at work all over the United States to enforce the prohibition laws. This number would be necessary to properly en force the law in Xew York City alone without the assistance of the public, officials of the internal revenue bu reau admit. In all other line of government ac tivity about one-half of available ap propriations are used for office main tenance and other set expenses, usually known as overhead charges. This would leave but $1,000,000 to be used for pay of agents in the field to en force the prohibition laws. Agents who would be effective could not be obtained at less than 12,000 a year and with $1,000 added for subsistence and other . travelling expenses it will ' be impossible to keep more than four hundred men in the field to enforce the laws, according to officials of the internal revenue bureau. As over $2,000,000 is required annually to main tain the fight against illicit distilla tion of whiskey in only isolated places, the enormity and impossibility of en forcing the prohibition law all over the country with $2,000,000 is easily recognized. The internal revenue , bureau must organize and maintain a force for en forcement of prohibition entirely sep arate and distinct from the organiza tion charged with enforcing the illicit distilling laws, the collection of reve nues and other functions, because the appropriations are made by congress for separate and distinct purposes, internal revenue officials said today. This will prevent the bureau using agents engaged In other work to as sist in enforcing prohibition. The prohibition enforcement ' bill charges the internal revenue bureau with the investigating and police func tions and allots to .the department of justiqe the task of prosecuting per sons apprehended by the revenue bu reau. This will prevent department of Justice officials from taking a hand in detecting prohibition law violators. It will also compel the retention by the department of justice of a separate force for prosecuting persons appre hended by the internal revenue bureau for law violation. The ' rule against using money appropriated for one pur. pose "for carrying out another law will prevent the regualr justice depart ment prosecutors handling the pro hibition cases.
