TEE FAIL Of ft FETICH. ,
It is sineular ho lonir and bow ab
jectly mankind will bow to fetich.
Through the years of King Aiconoi a
rpio-n It was asserted by hia henchmen
and believed by his dopes that ha could
not be successfully dethroned, rrom-
hitinn would not orohibit. tbey said.
Mankind had been drinking: intoxicants
for thousands of years and wouw eon
tinue to drink them until tha end of
time. Prohibition would merely aub-
stitute secret and unlawful drinking for
Aran and lawful drinking and demoral
ize society by encouraging law viola
tion. It would lay confiscatory nanas
a Unra induatrr. emotr hundreds
of buildings and throw thousands of
workers out of employment.
These snd other arguments have
been heard so often thst to recount
them is superfluous. The point to that
they have been proven wholly falsa in
the iizht of a glorified new experience.
The fetich has been swept from Hs
pedestal and lies, grinning fraud, be
neath the heel of an awakened com
monwealth. Not one "drunk"
been seen on tha streets of Weston
since prohibition went Into effect the
first of the year. In tlx larger cmea
of Oregon arrests for drunkenness
have been so few ss to be almost neg
ligible. A few boot-leggers have been
arrested in Portland, as might bsva
been expected; but these despicable
knaves are watched so closely by tha
officers and dealt with o severely in
the courts that their activities must
soon cease entirely. Successful boot
legging in tha smaller towns is well
nigh impossible. . ,
Like, Oregon, Washington is profiting
by its prohibition Isw. Even so strong
snd outspoken "wet" organ as tha
Seattle Daily Times has been brought
