ENFORCEMENT -PROHIBITION
TO BE BIG JOB
(Continued from Page On)
to enforce the law with the meagre
force provided by congress. 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.
