Govcrnor Hartness stood squnrcly for tho enforccmcnt of tho lnw and pledged the full co-opcrntion of Vermont to tliat cnd, but ho made it plnin that by reason of the geographical iocation of Vermont ncjct to the Canndlan border the number of enforccmcnt officcrs wns far too sniall. Aftcr onc governor had said that no attcmpt was made in his state to cnforce thc lnw as to light wines nnd homc brow President Harding nskcd thc other gov ernors to indicntc what was bcing donc with rcspect to those liquors in tlicir states.

Ho tohl tho President that during the time Vermont was undcr local option the liquor denlers apparcntly wcre morc afrnid of thc rcvpnuc officprs, wlio ox ncted the covernmcnt tax on denlers, than thcv were of local oiriccrs and that rnuch the samc condition exists now, vio- lators bcing more afraul of the tederal officers than thcv nre of local ofliccrs.
