j 1 THE PROOF
In a statement made at 8elem
yesterday, Goraraor Wlthycombe, la
' reporting upon, the' conditions at the
' stato penitentiary, called attention
v to the dedming commitment figures
and at the same time to the Increas
ed deposits in the savings tanks of
tha state. '
" According to the governor's fig
ures there were 157 commitments to
the penitentiary In 1914, 181 in
1915. aad 148 in Deposits it
carina banks totalled S35.tS5.67t
tn 1S14; $S7.88.01 in 1115 and
I45.S11.11S to 1116.
We hare had no moral warn
sweeping orer the country, and.
therefore, I am convinced prohibi
tion Is responsible for the 'decrease
tn the commitments to the penlten
tlary." the governor said. "Neither
hare we had any wave of prosperity
and therefore I am satisfied prohibi
tion Is the cause of the Immense In-
crease In savings deposits."
The governor Is right.' It baa been
. the experience Of every community
In the world that has given real
' prohibition a real trial. Liquor has
not only brought a general Increase
.. of nnhapplnesa, poverty and crime
among tha people where It has been
freely need, bat its prohibition has
brought about a changed ordef
markedly better In every way.
The moral side of the question,
' while posslUy the most Important,
Is far from being the whole problem.
Economically, doing away with liq-
' nor has proven benefit to people and
communities alike. More wealth Is
produced. More waste Is eliminated
A greater per cent of the average
earnings has been saved. The peo-
S pie have enjoyed and been benefit
1 : ed more from what they have ex
pended than ever before,
"The proof of the pudding Is In
the eating." If common sense can
. not teach the benefits of doing away
with the liquor traffic, the exper
iences of tbe states that have, should
convince others of the great sdvgnt-
age of prohibition. National prohl
bltlon Is as sure as the rising of
tomorrow's sun.
A RESUME
' The wsr Is three years old. A
double murder tn a little Servian
town three years ago last week, set
aflame the greatest holocaust history
has ever known.
The anniversary of the beginning
of this struggle Is a good time to
pause for a moment to take stock of
the sltustlon, especially as this conn
