Drunkeness Will be Promoted by Removing' the Tux. From the Chicago Tribune (Rep.) Millions of drinkers, not Germans, content themselves nowadays with a 5-cent glass oflager beer, containing 3 percent of alcohol, rather than pay io, 12 or 15 cents for a glass of whisky containing 40 per cent of alcohol. Previous to i860 few persons except Germans drank any liquor weaker than whisky. Brandy, gin and rum, as well as whisky was swallowed in vast quantities by the Americans, Irish and Scotch in those days and drunken ness was frightfully general all over the Union irrespective oi-age, sex or sect. A barrel of whisky cost but $6 to $8, and a gallon jug but a quarter, while a quart bottle could be had anywhere for a dime. Still-houses swarmed all over the land, wherever rye, corn or apples could be grown and the mas ses drank whisky like water. Thus it was that 30,000,060 of inhabitants in i860 put themselves outside of 90,000, 000 of gallons of "bug-juice" per an num! Last year the total consump tion of whisky as a beverage was less than 60,000,000 by over 60,000,000 of inhabitants. The fivefold increased cost of whisky through Federal taxation has caused a large part of the "rum" drinkers to quit it and resort to the far cheaper and nearly non-intoxicat-ing "lager," and another large part of the whisky imbibers to cease its use nr tvrlnre. its consumntion in inverse nrnnnriion to the enhanced cost of the ardent,'4 so that from any point of view the high tax has promotea so briety and diminished drudkenness. Hence to abolish the tax would so cheapen whisky as to lead at once to an immense increase 01 us cunsump' tinn with the inevitable attendant in crease of inebnety and all the ev.ls that follow in its train. ...
