One of the prize publicity methods of the brewery and wine interests is to contrast the amount of drunkenness in one of our prohibition states, usual- lyjtfaine, with the amount of drunk- enness in the wine-drinking countries of France and Italy in an attempt to show the superiority of the latter in the matter of sobriety. So far from being correct, the statesmen of France and Italy have long recognized intem- perance as one of the most serious evils with which they have to contend. In 1912 the Italian premier, Hon. Lugi Luzzatti, introduced a bill into the Italian parliament providing measures for the reduction of intemperance, and presented a great mass of evidence showing that deaths from alcoholism in Italy are rapidly increasing, while the general death rate is falling. Prof. Cesare Lombroso, the world-renowned alienist, recently deceased, published in the Archive di Psichiatria of which he was the editor, a stirring appeal from Doctor Antonini, superintendent of one of the largest insane asylums in Italy, in which he said: \The Hospi- tals and insane asylums are filled with alcoholic patients; consumption pro- moted by alcoholic degeneracy rages; pellagra joins itself with alcoholic poi- soning; crime is becoming more fre- quent among the young; the suicides are legion; the people are growing steadily weaker and more morally de- generate.\ To this appeal, Lombroso added his indorsement, with a demand for stringent legislation. At the Milan International Congress on Alcoholism, 1913, prominent Italian delegates spoke strongly of the growing evils caused by alcohol. Hon. H. E. Falci- oni, Italian secretary of state, report- ed that deaths from alcoholism have nearly trebled since 1889. Against of- ficial declarations like these the argu- ments of brewers and winemen and their supporters have no weight. and almost as many In other cities.'\A rule barring drinking employees has been In force \ever since the factory opened. \We do not allow any man to enter our plant with liquor on his breath or to drink at any time, if we know it,\ says Mr. Winton, founder and presi- dent of the compa'ny. \No well regulated plant can afford to employ men who drink.

The late Prof. Hugo • Munsterburg of Harvard, recognized authority in America on German ideals, gave to the public in 1907 this opinion of the saloon: \There is nothing more degrading and no more atrocious insult to civil- ized life than the American saloon. It has poisoned the social atmosphere' for the masses; in it the workingman squanders his savings, and the healthy man devastates his energies and be- comes a wreck. Political corruption irradiates from the saloon into the whole public life and a thousand ways lead from the saloon to the peniten- tiary. It is a blessed movement which | now turns with overwhelming energy | against the horrors of this evil and , source of Infection. There may be dis- agreements as to the best ways and means, disagreement whether strict prohibition or education towards tem-1 perance is the more reliable meth- od; bift there is no disagreement as to the fact that the saloon has to be wiped out, and the day seems near indeed when—thanks to women—the fight against the saloon will be taken ' up in -almost every state.\ SECOND EMANCIPATION. In high moments Abraham Lincoln dreamed of the coming of the hour when in all the land there should be found no slave, and he lived to see the dream come true, and with his own good hand he unlocked the bar that held a race captive. But that was not all his dream. He dreamed of the coming of a day when In all the land, the land he loved, and for which he gave his life, there should be found no drunkard made by government sanction. He died and did not see that half of his great dream realized, but his countrymen do not forget, nor shall they until in the high empire of a mighty power they commission an- other man from the selfsame room in the capitol at WfiKhington to write the emuncipilion of the land from the liquor rratlir.—Ex.

Kovermmenic ownership of railways The Wmton Motor Car company em- righltnow. - sima about J.,200 menjn OievelancL Q u BOOZER MUST .o. Employers' liability laws in the dif- eferent states hs?ve been an important factor in bringinj about the present at- tiude of the business world toward liquor. Corporation managers, investi- gating the causes of accidents in mill and factory, on railroad and waterway, found a large proportion directly due to the drink habit. Hence the reason for the famous \rule G\ of the Ameri- can Railroad association and the total abstinence requirements of big busi- ness generally. In line with this comes the Michigan Workmen's Compensation Mutual of Detroit, which, wi learn from the West- ern Underwriter, an insurance journal, has sent its members a circular letter on the booze question. We quote: \The careful consideration of all moral hazards involved under the com- pensation law reveals the fact that booze is the biggest. \Booze is so insidious in its work- ings that even though an employee may not be actually under the influence of liquor at the timt of an injury, a very large percentage of all injuries ' are either directly or indirectly due to the drinking of liquor. \Therefore we are earnestly recom- mending to all of our members that the service of the booze fighter, whether he drink much or little, be dispensed with as promptly as possible, providing he cannot be made to see the error of his ways and become an abstainer.\ LIQUOR BUSINESS AND LABOR. \The average workingman fears be- ing out of a job more than he does going to hell, and the liquor interests have capitalized' on this fear,\ said Rev. Charles Stelzle before the Fed- eral Council of Churches. And he pointed out that: \If the money now invested in the liquor business were invented in the average American industry it would give employment to four times as many workingmen, who collectively would receive four times as much in the form of wa^es, an d four times as much raw material would be required than is now the case in the liquor busi- ness.\ Mr. Stelzle said'that the number of workingmen employed in the liquor business has been greatly exaggerated. The liquor interests purchase annually only about an average of $10 worth of produce from each farmer in the Unit- ed States. FAIRNESS TO TAXPAYERS. A Muncie (Ind.) judge the other day made the novel ruling that a man not only has a right to lie down in the sa- loon where he becomes intoxicated but that it is his duty to do so instead of going to some other place. The vic- tim in the case had explained to the judge that after drinking at the bar he felt the drunken stupor coming on and so hurried to the jail, only a block away, and gave himself up, because he did not suppose the saloonkeeper would permit him to sleep off his In- toxication on his premises. \So you thought you'd go to the jail and let the taxpayers take care of you?\ queried the court. \The next time you get drunk I want you to lie down right there in the saloon and not become a public expense.\ INCREASES VALUES.

I fprir alcohol {is I fear the bacillus found associated, probably casually, with uri.-'Mhetlc leprosy,. because it docs away with the danger signals with which we ai'e provided through our seriseK—-pain, irritability, hunger, fatigue. Each one of these may bo rendered less Insistent by the use of alcohol, but the real causes of these sensations are left unaffected or may even be increased by the use of the very agent that blunts the \senses\ through which thss-' are manifested.— Prof. G. Sims Wwwb-ead t>£ Cambridge University, 2toglao<4 PROHIBITION GAINING. Twenty-five states and the territory of Alaska are now dry. Utah has the honor of coming in with the first half of our 48 United States. Indiana, only 20 hours behind, has the honor of lead- ing the second section of the dry pro- cession. Wyoming, New Mexico and Minnesota have submitted the quesr tion to the people, and prohibition campaigns are on in Missouri, Ohio, Texas, Wisconsin, Illinois, Florida, Pennsylvania, Ne\vada. Indeed, there is hardly a state noi already dry which is not more or less stirred No Incumbrance. A considerable commingling of social classes, writes a correspondent of the Manchester Guardian, occurs in our village, owing to the townfolks' practice of renting summer cottages among us, and living therein in neigh- borly fashion with the working people for whom the places were built. In one such case the resident from town was an unmarried lady; the genuine cottager next door had a husband who, to put it mildly, was no blessing to her. Making a friendly call one day, the wife was greatly impressed by the pleasant air of comfort and well-being achieved in a cottage otherwise the duplicate of her own. She looked round with a mildly envious air and, with a little sigh, earnestly remarked: \Oh Miss X , you ought to be 'ap- py—no 'usband nor not-hin'.\ AFTER MANY YEARS OF WORK Commission Finally Publishes Its Findings, and, as Usual, the Tax- payers Foot the Bill. A dog once bit a boy's leg, so the latter's father promptly sued the own- er of the animal. After much wrang- ling the case was submitted to an in- dependent inquiry committee, which many years after gave their decision as follows: \We find the dog partly responsible for the bite—not the owner, whom we have established has no cannibalistic tendencies. Considering the independ- ent action of the animal, which point- ed to bones in the vicinity, it is to be regretted that the canine intelligence did not consider the portion of leg between it and the said bones. \The boy is not guilty of negligence In getting in the dog's Way, and we should compensate him, only he is now a man, and it was a boy who was bit- ten. Likewise he has forgotten which leg suffered. \We are inclined to censure the dog for careless discrimination, but it is dead, so we unanimously conclude no one is guilty, except the taxpayers, who, having derived considerable en- tertainment from the proceedings, must now pay the cost thereof.\— London Tit-Bits.
