Nor need we be Kurprlsed, nor should we complain, thnt lirolilbltlonlBtf chucklo, or oven lf lnany of thcm nro illspoKed to let thlngs go at tholf wurst In the bollef tlmt It wlll only render more certnln a return to what the bellcve to be the only rlght way or donllng wlth the subject. Thls, In pnrt at least. I only a parallel to the attltiule of many llcense meii under " prohibltion," nml It only niokes plalner and more Im perative Ihe duty of the. bollevers In tho new law ns a moasuro of the best pnbllc pollcy. Htate's Attorney Si'hwenk has set tho rlght cxample In Klvlng to the llcense boaril tho name of evory person prose culed for Intoxlcatlou so that the board may forbld Ilcenscva to sell to hlm ngaln. The ballirfs onght, for the sake of publlc docency. If nothlng more. to glve the pollce olllcer.s strlct orders to " run In " ovory drunk they set. And the rest of ns, to make stn e of covcrlng every case they overlook or neglect ought to hand the name of evory Intoxlcated person we iee or know of to the llcense board. Thus a qulck end wonld be put to thcse exhl bltlons tlmt now dlsgraco our streets. And It would not le any " busy-body meddlliig" on our part but only nlaln duty to nelghbors and tlic communlty: lor the man drunk is a menace to llfnj and property generally as well as to fam- 1 ny, ana we lmve no more rlght, know lngly and repeatedly, to let hlm run at large than the manlac. The law (Sec. 21) forblds the sale of llquor to any person who Is known to have been lutoxlcated wlthln slx months. Anv seller who vlolates thls condltion is liable to forfeiture of his llcense, and one forfeiture bars hlm forever (not for one year only as In Massachusetts) from gettlng anotlier llcense anywhere ln Ver mont. It Is a penalty that no seller is Hkel to rlsk for the sake of the prollt on a len-cent sale. Uy maklng sure, then, that the llcense board and through It the seller "knows." of every ease of Intoxi catlon that the good cltlzen knows, we hae the seller llxed where a singlo sale, wlth no screens or obstructlons to hlde It from the passer-by, brlngs the penalty nnd the llfe-long bar. The easy and dlrect way Is provlded for condltlons In flnltely better than were ever known un der so-called prohlbltlon. It Is very llkely that tho present re crudescence of drunkenness Is ln some de gree temporary on the " new broom " prlnclple, but ln the maln 1 belleve It Is only bringlng to the surface what has all along exlsted, becauso tho seller now feels safe In lettlng loose the sot he be fore stowed away to slecp It off. only for the body politlc one of It Is those eruptive diseases whose polson only the fool physlclan thlnks It safest and best to keep worklng out of slght. The one grcat theory and purpose of the new law Is to have nothlng hldden, and then, knowing the measure and extent of the ovll we have to deal wlth, to " provlde wlth preclslon " In Madlson's words, so far as posslble, how to deal and thereln, as thls great statesman sald, IS tho art of good law-maklng. Not only under Is lt provlded, so far as Iaw power can do, to shut off the supply to the drunkard, but the llquor seller, who under " prohlbltlon ' was at the mercy of that lndlvldual where he dared not refuse, can now be placed where he dare not sell. We have a law that Is practlcal of thorough enforcement, because lt draws the llne more clearly and deflnltely than was ever done lierore, between that part of the tralllc that ought to be prohlblted and that part whlch, under the best theo rlcs of government, we have no rlght to meddlo wlth. In the Amerlcan system, liowever, as dlstlngulshed from thoso of a despotic east, the Indlfference of cltl zenshlp wlll defeat tho opcratlon of any law, however well and carerully devlsed. And hero In Urattlehoro abovejill other places, respect ror the memory of the late Dr. Conland and his part ln tho en actment roiulres that there be no such Indlfference, but that all Joln heartlly ln seelng that the new law has good-falth enforcement.
