"It is extremely unfortunate," says Governor Cpbu 6t Matne in his second inaugural add res, before the legislature, "for what I conceive to be the true cause of temperance tbat a res olution to resubmit to popular yote the p'r6'!)bit6Ty'am'endmeut .(i(o the present state coustitui tion) must be in form at least a pr a c t i c al ' rcfln d t m'n a tion by'"' the iegisiai.uce,.Of,.ii.erfpjresi. policy of prohibition, and uot the au thonzatio.! f a. sicfTnie referen- lutn -r .OrnAScerftaiii liie people's views ...

If the legislature still in the control of the Republicans were to first repeal the Sturgis law, it is doubtful if a resubmis sion resolution could then bt; carried, for the worst-hated feature of "prohibition tbat does not prohibit" wouiJ then have been removed. But it is worth considering tbat, inasmuch as the question of prohibition as a part of the constitution ought to be resub mitted, the time for doing it is obviously when the legislature is in tbe mood to take the initi ative and it is so now appar ently, for the first and only time since the late Neal Dow got the thing engrafted onto the fundamental law. Tbe out come of such a popular vote would be doubtful. But if it resulted m taking prohibition out of tbe constitution, it would open the way for high license and local option and have the one good effect, at least, of per mitting Maine lawmakers to cease to be a pack ot hypocrites.
