U Is a curious fact that two great
forcon should bo fighting for tho con
trol of tho United States, and each
contending (hat its defeat will bo co
incident with tho destruction of tho
moral fabric of tho country. Jt Is n
general proposition thnt opposing
forces hold diverging vlows. Great
political pnrtlou ant careful never to
contend for tho satno principle, for
should this bo dona tho motlvo would.
going homo to work for a third
term nnd a prohibition plank in tho
platform of tho Republican party
at Its next national convention. Thb
and other straws Indicate that thoro
may bo an nttompt to socure a pro
hibition cluu-o In tho platform j of
tho groat political parties next year.
Tho anti-prohlbltlon olemuut is keen
ly nwaka to Mils movement nnd pro
pogou to prevent tho huccow of th
plan.
A etrang nrgHMtnt ngalnst prohl
bo romovod from tho struggle. This bltlon theories U that If a man can
Iff, how nor, tho on no with thou who not purchase Intoxicants ho will, nft-
nro lighting for prohibition and those
who nro opposing it, for It Is held
by those high In tho councils of each
force that tho United fttntos Is rrmw
Ing tho threshold which leads to
tho inor.' depravity of the nation.
Thohft who oppose prohibition ma
bo termed. In opposition to tho Antl
Saloon lohgu, which is fighting for
It, tho "Antl-lntolornnoe Iftnguo."
Tho "AntMntolornnoo Unguo" Is op
posed to the rentrletlon of personal
liberty by forbidding tho salo of
liquor to all beonuio tho fow make
careless mo of It. They hold that
tho nttompt to prohibit thu snlo of
liquor does not do uwny with Its
consumption and hover will. This
contention Is supported by llguroH
based upon observations nnd records
in cities and Mates whoro prohibi
tion has boon tested. Thoy say thnt
just, nti truo as man Is born into tho
world ho comes with n Inst for In
toxicants, nnd thin tblmt ho
or oxhnustlug every othor rosourcr
mako thorn hluiMlf. As proof of this
ono hns but to dlscusM the auostlon
with tho officers charged with tho
enforcement of tho intornnl revenue
laws. Those omclnla aro fauilllnr
with hundreds of methods by which
tho smalt land holder In tho pro
hibition states of tho south may brew
or distil a liquid which will nppoase
his thrlst for liquor, although In so
doing It may vory llkoly tnko hi
roaion. And Just hero is one of tho
strongest arguments of thoio who
opposo prohibition,
It Is bniod on tho theory that tq
prevent the use of liquor absolutely
In an Impossibility. It Is then hold
thnt since It h Imposilblu to prevent
tho um of Intoxicant It Is far bettor
to permit Its lognllxod uio under
rate nnd elty restrictions than to
attempt 'o pi event It. nnd as a re
sult Hi ud tho man who will hnvu It
will anyway Into tho dlvo to ret It. Thoro
quench In soma way and form. If ho will drink anything from wood
I loo or aro not eold legally thti aloohol to hard older In his efforts
aesiro prompts lilm to
lowing It came that which is known
as tho "era of free rum," resulting
in tho second popular temperance
movement of 1820. This mnikcd the
origin of tho "pledge." This cru
sado was largely directed against
tho Mfeo of spirits.
Money in tiki Iliislncs.
Tho total nmount of money invest
ed in the browing and distilling busi
ness In tho United Stales, according
to tho latest avallablo figures, .s
$612,571,558. This Is distributed In
44. states nnd territories. The ten
states most 'heavily Interested are.
Now York, $122,009,441; Pennsyl

Jersey, $30,525,727; MnssacndBettb,
$23, 894,040, and Minnesota, $14,
802,300. Surpriso will bo expressed by those
who do not follow closely tho work
of tho intornnl revonuo division of
tho treasury at tho increnso In In
ternal rovonuo taxes on spirits dis
tilled from grain In thu face of tho
success of tho prohibition movement.
Tho taxes collected on this form of

the lax.'s on fermented liquors, chief
