prohibits open saloons on Sunday, but it is not much ob

pefsistently-advocated local option not only with refer

closing. He demands enforcement of .the present lawi
not because he favor it but because it would demon
strate the , futility of maintaining , restrictions not sup
ported by public opinion. . Governor. Higgins it also an
advocate of local option and in his message recommended
that the cities as well as the country districts should have
the privilege of deciding whether liquors should be sold
or not, and in what subdivisions thereof if any. '

New-York; yielding last year about $18,000,000, of which
