A numerous class of reasoncrs con
tended tliat uo majority, however
great) has a right to prohibit the tra
tic in intoxicating drinks, because tla
minority, however small, has a right
to use t Iwsc drinks ; and, therefore, to
buy them, and the right to sell Is the
necessary compliment of the right tti
buy. As well might a majority with
corns on their toe-decree that no bouts
should be sold, as a majority opioscd
to strong drink prohibits the li.pior
traffic. This reasoning is plausible,
and will easily conylne all wlai
wish to be convinced by it ; but it w ill
not stand examination. If the IWunir
t rattle imposed no burden or loss upon
j those who do not (ise llptor, the argu-
incut would be stroni! tor leaving list
drinkers to settle the matter with tlas
Honor sellers, though even tla? law
might have a right to step in to pre-,
vent robbery, murder aial suicide by
liquor, as well.as to prevent ttiew by
means of li rearms or poison.
But the llijuor traffic does not con
fine its effects to drinkers. Their liuu
Hies and creditors suffer, and the com
munity sellers in jrreatly increased
taxation. Admitting, therefore, for
i the sake of argument, the abstract
j ''ght to buy and sell intoxication
drinks against the will ofthe majority.
