“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
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
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
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
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
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.
