President Wilson that eongre&i repeat

Under the act all manufacture and sale
of intoxicating liquors are crimes
against the United States.
Whether Cncle Sam will dei:rt the
well known water wagon, for a brief

replaces the war time ut next Janu

Wilson. Congress can repeal tlie act,

signating a definite agency in! the
work and dearly defining how Jtuuh al
cohol makes liquor intoxicating, the
task seems stupendous.
The work of government ,jenU
means, if bone dry prohibition is to be
strietly enforced, the elimination of ft
per capita consumption of 19.4 gallons a
year from the American people. Lat
est figures show the consumption i
malt liquors ia the United State aa 2,
003,437,000 gallous; wines, W,41,000
gallons aud alcohol, 140,39700 gallon.
These figures probably have been re
duced during the laat year because of
the rapid advance of prohibition.
Achievement of national piojibition
has been one of the most spectacular,
as well as one of the longest inform

present movement started about I'if teen
years ago. Then the were only three
dry states: Maine, Kansas and North
Dakota, although many counties ia the
south had voted local option.
Maine Tint Dry State.
Maino was the first state to adopt
prohibition, restriction being placid on
the sale of liquor there in 140. Real
prohibition was en&ctod In 1854 there,
but was repealed ia IbTiO. 'luoa. again

Kansas was the second stste to fall
into the dry column, the vote being

This lax enforcement started Carrie
Nation, (Huled prohibition advocate, on
her famous saloon smashing career.
Armed with an axe, she demolished the
fixtures of several Kansas arJoous run

law, Her success at breaking up Can
