“LOCAL OPTION” EXPOSED.
A local option bill was proposed at the last session of the New Jersey Legisla ture. Before the Committee on Municipal Corporations on March 2,190 S, the Rev. Dr. E. A. Wasson, of Newark, N. J., de livered the following telling argument in opposition to the measure. The general issue to which this bill is contributory falls into three heads. First, shall the alcoholic beverages in controversy be sold or not? Second, Under what conditions, if at all, shall they be sold? Third, Where shall the discretionary power be lodged? The bill before us is not formally or directly concerned with the first two questions, Shall these beverages be sold, and Under what conditions shall they be sold? Ostensibly and on the surface this bill deals only with the third question: namely, With whom shall the discretion ary power be lodged? Its answer is, With the community most nearly affected. By “community” it means the town, township, municipal ity or ward. The principle of this bill is generally understood to be local option and the friends of the bill encourage this under standing of it. It is said to be a local option bill. This term local option has gained friends for the bill. It has a dem ocratic sound, suggesting the obvious thought that the people of the political unit most nearly affected know better than any others the good and evil of this traffic, and are therefore most compe tent to handle or regulate it. Now the propositions in question may be good or bad, considered as theories. They might likewise be good or bad in their actual working out. But there is a question anterior and superior to these questions for the legislature to ask and answer. That question is, whether this is or is not one of those issues on which they ought to seek a direct mandate of the people before acting. That there are such questions will hardly be denied — questions namely th-it the Legislature ought to refer to the body of the voting citizenship of the state for instructions. The obligation to refer some questions to the people for their determination is often not legal, but a matter of political equity. The Legislature is not an ethical so ciety to voice moral yearnings of its members or to body forth lofty ideals. It is, on the contrary, a representative body. The Legislature is sent to Trenton to do what the people wish to have done. The Legislature is a hired servant. If it is a faithful servant, it will seek to do its employers’ will, not its own. This is democracy. But in fact the Legislature is more than an amanuensis. From the nature of the situation, from the numerousness of the people and their preoccupations, it is manifestly impossible for them to give their representatives minute detail ed instructions. Much has to be left to the good sense.and to the loyalty of the legislator servants of the people. Now where is the line to be drawn be tween issues that as a matter of political equity ought to be referred to the people before the Legislature acts on them, and those issues on which the Legislature can rightly originate action? The principle of discrimination is here: In the matter of principles of first-class importance, the Legislature ought to be instructed by the people. The duty of the Legislature is to put into effect the principles approved by the people. That is really the true legislative function— to give effect to the express will of the people, together with its corollaries and implications. It is for the people to tell their Legislature what they wish done. It is for the Legislature to do it. A New Principle. Now this local option principle, so called, is something new in our legisla tion so far as it affects the traffic in al coholic beverages. The local option prin ciple for the regulation of the business in question is no mere detail of a princi ple approved by the people, nor is it a method of giving effect to the expressed will of the people. The local option principle in this field is a principle of first-class importance, distinctly a new principle in our state jurisprudence, and commended as such by its friends as em bodying a great reform, a great reform not only in its working, but as a princi ple of regulation. It is a proposition for a fundamental change in our treatment of a great branch of industry, and in our treatment of the privileges and liberties of the citizen. From the dim emergence of civilization the commodities in ques tion have generally, and certainly among the great peoples who have accepted the guidance of the scriptures of the Old and New Testaments, been looked on and treated as legitimate beverages. And in this state the prescriptive right and priv ilege of the citizen in the matter of al coholic beverages, a right and privilege inherited by him from his forefathers through unnumbered generations, have been held and enjoyed by him subject only to the veto power of the whole peo ple of the state acting through their rep resentative body, the Legislature. What is proposed now is to make this ancient and widely diffused right and privilege of the citizen dependent, not on the will of the sovereign state, but of his neigh bors, his immediate neighbors, the peo ple that happen to live near in his town, or in his ward. This rejection of ancient principle and usage and the substitution of a novel practice, novel to us here in this commonwealth, may be wise or un wise. But it certainly belongs to that class of questions as to which the senti ment of the people should first be sought. If the people of the state demand this change, well and good, we shall loyally accept their verdict. But we demand the opportunity to present and to argue this Issue, this new departure before them rather than to have it sprung on us by a body that has not sought and is not in a position to know the sentiment of the people. The Ward As a Unit. The proposed principle is not only a novelty among us in itself, but it in volves another novelty. It practically creates a new political unit—l mean the ward. It is true that the ward has ex isted in the cities of New Jersey for a long time as a quasi political unit; but its active existence has been, so to speak, only occasional. momentar>, fitful. For compare it with other and live political units. The county has its laws, its law makers, its officials, and machinery that are active all the time. The village has its laws, law-makers, officials, and ma chinery that are active all the time. The city has its laws, law-makers, officials and machinery that are active all the time. But the ward, what is the ward? When does it live? What does it do? Where are its laws, its law-makers, its officials, and machinery that are active all the time? In fact, at no time has it laws and law-makers, and officials, and only momentarily and occasionally ma chinery. The ward is merely a political unit for the election of aldermen, and perhaps, here and there, of school com missioners. And in the very act of crea tion it expires, for the aldermen elected by its become at onct* officials of the city and not of the ward. It is not the "aider man of the Ninth Ward,” but the “Alder man from the Ninth Ward.” But this bill enacts the ward into an active and constant political unit, a leg islative unit. It may be doubted whether this is a good thing to do. The munici pality has hitherto been the political unit for all its citizens. They have all had a common municipal legislature. And this common Legislature has constituted the city one. But this bill would make of Newark, for example, for some pur poses not one city, but IT. This is con trary to the general trend of the best thought on municipal matters, which calls for a simplification and concentra tion of powers under one responsible head. None- of our cities has yet reached dimensions that are unwieldy, and with such legislation dividing the community against itself it may be doubted whether they ever will. But if they do, it will be time enough to consider a division and apportionment of powers. And in that event it is certain that the division will not be on ward lines with us any more than it is in the city of New' York. But if the Legislature should think it its duty to act one way or the other on this proposition rather than to seek the sentiment of the people, I submit that this proposition is not what it is repre sented to be, and that it will not accom plish what is claimed for it. It is repre sented to be a home rule measure, and it is commonly understood by the people to put the settlement of the question of alcoholic beverages as a business prop osition into the hands of the groups of people most nearly affected by this trade. That claim indeed is its only title to be a local option measure. It is also represented that this will re sult in the elimination of the liquor ques tion from state politics and from the dis cussions of our state legislature. In both quarters this question has to some extent been a disturbing issue and no doubt has impeded useful legislation. Thus both a theoretical justification and a practical recommendation are claimed for this measure: on the one hand it will satisfy the principle of home rule; and on the other it will, as far as state politics are concerned, settle the liquor question. But what reason is there for accepting these large claims? What ‘‘Local Option” Masks. First, it must be observed that the very title by which this bill is popularly known is a deceptive misnomer. It is not a true local option measure at all. It is the product, not of any individual, but of an extensive and zealous propa ganda all over the country, whose pur pose is the destruction of the traffic in alcoholic beverages. Every measure tending to that end receives the support of the people that variously figure as anti-saloon, Prohibition, VV. C. T. U., Temperance people. it be under stood that these people will never rest till the whole liquor business be wiped out. This is their principle, and local option happens to be a handy weapon at the moment, a name to conjure with, and to be cast aside when any other weapon seems more available. At this very mo ment, in the city of Washington, the cap ital of the country, you are using all your influence to induce Congress to give the state more control over the liquor traf fic within its borders than it has ever had. To effect this you are asking the national government to discard a prin ciple of law that has stood since the foundation of the country and to adopt a new and radical legislation. From the beginning the right of the citizen of a state to receive in the original package any legitimate article of merchandise for his own use from a citizen of an other state has been recognized. Now you are importuning Congress to give Prohibition states the right to exclude alcoholic products seeking to enter by way of interstate commerce. That is, you are seeking to endow the state with a power over the liquor traffic analogous to that of which you are seeking to di vest the state of New Jersey. Your idea seems to be that it is all right for a state to control the liquor business if it will control it in the way of Prohibition. But if it will not control the liquor traffic in the way of Prohibition, then, having ex torted what fraction of Prohibition can be gotten, the state is to be stripped of farther power in the matter in favor of city, village, or ward, which it is hoped may control in the way of Prohibition. Why Not the Army Post? A few years ago, before the local op tion movement arose, or when it had not yet attained prominence, the same ele ment, with the same end in view, in duced Congress to abolish the army can teen. Now the army post affords a most admirable example of a community com plete and sufficient in itself. The army post, whether in the neighborhood of a large city or on the vast prairie, lives its own life, has its own interests, ad ministers its own discipline. It is really an imperium in imperio. Here then were the conditions ideal for the application of local option or home rule, i challenge you who are now vociferating for local option, for the control of the liquor traf fic by the small political unit, you who wish to give the ward the right to de cide whether it will permit the liquor business or not, I challenge you to ex plain why you did not demand local op tion for the army post? Why did you not leave it to the soldiers of the post to decide by vote whether they wished beer in the canteen or not? Or why did you not at the very least leave it to the de cision of the officers of the post? And if you disclaim responsibility for what was done before as a local option movement you acquired power, 1 challenge you to say here and now whether you are or are not in favor of local option for the army post at this hour? Are you willing to imitate or at least to second and push a movement in Congress to abolish Prohi bition by national enactment at army posts and to substitute therefor local op tion? If you are not willing to say this and to do this, how have you the nerve to stand here and declare your belief in the principle of local option? Is it not true that local option is a mere trick to get only what you cannot get in the way of anti-liquor legislation from the state and the nation? Is it not true that you are quite ready to advocate national con trol. state control, or ward control, not only consecutively, but simultaneously, as suits your purpose, and that your only real demand in the way of political prin ciple is that the law shall squelch the liquor man? Whether it is a national club, a state club, or a ward club, that you wield, is a matter of entire indiffer ence to you: you have all three in your arsenal, ready for use. Your sole prin ciple is not political or civic at all: it is a lust of hate against the man who makes, who deals in, or who uses alco holic beverages. It is a hate and not a principle, that animates you. The Milk In the Cocoanut. To call this bill a local option measure, either in its spirit or its form, is simply to juggle with an honorable name. True, local option leaves to the local political unit, which may seem to have the best claim to jurisdiction over the matter in issue, the entire control of that matter. It trusts in the wisdom of the local com munity, and it loyally accepts the ver dict of the local community. It believes that even if the local community should err in its action, still it can be depended on to rectify its error; and indeed it goes so far as to hold that it is better that the local community should make occasional errors tnan that it should be subjected to the dictation, even to the wise dicta tion, of a superior. Yet look at the piece of cunning that is perpetrated in this bill nullifying real local option in the name of local option. For this bill ac tually erects two local political units cov ering in part the same territory, and therefore bound at times to come into conflict. I refer to the municipality and the ward. The ward is a portion of the municipality. Now, on the principle of local option, both the city and the ward cannot be the correct political union. Either the city or the ward ought to have jurisdiction. Which of the two is the natural and proper locus, or political unit, to control the liquor traffic within its borders? Is it the city? Is it the ward? “Both,” replies the bill. But this is an extraordinary position to take. How can both, and why should both, control? Surely, one has better claims than the other. Now I believe that this conflict be tween the authority of the city and the ward is not an accident. I believe it was carefully contrived. And what its effect will be is clear from an examination of the further provisions. For look. In the event of a difference of judgment be tween the city and the ward, a difference that is sure to arise in every large city, since all wards will not be of the same judgment, I say in the event of a differ ence of judgment on this issue between the city and the ward, this bill expressly provides that the unit, whether city or ward, which stands for Prohibition, shall have the upper hand and overmaster the other. Thus, if the city as a whole votes Prohibition, then the antl-Prohibltion ward must yield to the city and become Prohibition territory, too. But if the city as a whole votes license, the Prohibition ward is still at liberty to defy the city and maintain Prohibition. In case of a difference in judgment between city and ward, it is the anti-Prohibition party that has to yield every time. The Prohibition hands are always free, and the anti-Pro hibition community, whether ward or city, is penalized simply because it is anti-Prohibition. The Prohibition ward can defy the whole anti-Prohibition city beside, while the anti-Prohibition ward must yield to the will of the Prohibition (ity. In other words, the ward is su preme for Prohibition, but not for li cense. The ward’s political worth, that is, its political standing, depends on how it votes. And this in the sacred name of home rule, or local option! It is instead a piece of infamous chicanery. ♦+* * * Once you smoke a La Exploridad you will never smoke no other. +++ + + ► ► The patronage of union labels ► Is not a (ad, but a principle. ► UNITED LABOR BULLETIN M.
