Protest of Business M and Property
Owners Against Sumptuary Laws.
(VJcksburg American.)
. State Chairman J. Lee Long of Ala-
bama. in a statement, said: "From
-.every county in Alabama the farmers
with peculiar unanimity are entering
their protests against the ratification
of the amendment. Almost the entire
. legal profession has denounced it.
Most of the leading lawyers of Ala
bama from, every stump are against
It. At least 90 per cent of the med
ical profession are on record as be-
. lng in opposition to it; an overwhelm-
. -ing preponderance of the bankers,
merchants, manufacturers and busi
ness men of the 'state are up against
its ratification, and more church com
municants in the state of Alabama
' will vote against its ratification than
will vote for its adoption." Thjs is a
. 'very sweeping claim. The correctness
-j of his estimate is shown In the ap
parent result, and in the fact that the
overwhelming defeat of the amend
ment is to be regarded rather In the
light of a great state deliverance from
.calamity rather than a factional tri
(Mobile Register of Nov. 30, 1909.)
When asked what he thought of the
result of the Alabama election, Greg
ory M. Luce said: "I consider the re
sult of the amendment fight to be a
most decisive victory for the business
interests of the state. It was con
ducted by the business people in the
main, and was carried along business
lines. The defeat of the amendment
means much to the business men, and
I rejoice at it"
-Mr. A. G. Quinn said: "I am de
lighted with the result of the great
battle. It will help the business in
terests of the state, and help every
body." Colonel D. R. Burgess: "I speak as
a business man. The result of the
amendment election will add' material
ly to the value of investments in this
state. It will convince the financial
Interests of the country that the con
servative men of the state have taken
control of public affairs."
Hon. B. D. Barker, postmaster of
Mobile, returned home to vote agajnst
the constitutional amendment, and
said of the result: "I am glad to see
every form of fanaticism defeated.
This is not a victory for the liquor
element in Alabama and it should not
be so regarded In Mobile, in Alabama
or in any state of the union. It was
the voice of the temperate, sober, con
sertatlve men of Alabama who placed

ness interests of our state by depriv
ing us of our cbril liberties and the
rights our ancestors fought for in this
country 120 years ago and in England
'.over 600 years ago. I believe the
voice of the people of Alabama will
redound to the best interests of every
.part of the state.'
(Memphis "Commercial AppeaL)
The state of Alabama' spent. 967,.
600 more than it received daring the
currency fiscal year. The financial
status of Alabama is much like that
. of several other southern states. En
thusiastic reformers cat off source
.-.of revenue, but. at the sum
they do not cut down expenses.
A dispatch from Montgomery, Ala.,
of recent date says: "Owing to de
crease in' state revenue on account of
the prohibition law the state is fac
ing a shortage of $1,000,000, with the
executive authorised under the law to
borrow only $300,000. The appropria
tion ,made in the regular session of the
legislature int.1907 did not take into
account the general prohibition law
enacted at the special session of the
same year, which became effective on
the first of the present year. As a
result the treasury has gone so empty
that $50,000 must be had to tide over
the month of November "With perhaps
'$900,000 representing the deficit that
must come along by the end of the

believes the taxes coming in, with the
unused portion of the sum borrowed,
will tide the treasury over the first of
the year without further borrowing.

November was 85 per cent, compared
with November, 1908. This is an al
most total stoppage of building, due
largely to prohibition.
A special dispatch to the Nashville
American from Tuscumbia, Ala., says
thaffhe annual tax levies in Colbert
county have increased by $3,101.62 the
last year, due to the abrogation of liq
uor license fees by the prohibition
The taxpayers of every dry town in
Nebraska know that the no-license pol
icy results in an increase of tax as
sessments. Such additional burden or
taxation may be imposed by majority
vote under the local option clause of
the Slocumb law, and while many vot
ers pay little or no taxes, the policy
is adopted only by voters of the local
community. Not so under the pro
posed scheme of "county option,"
which would give voters outside of
the limits of villages and cities the
right to vote to force the no-license
policy upon the taxpayers of all vil
lages and cities in the county. It is
an attempt to deprive the public
school fund of the benefit of liquor
license money and to compel local
property owners to submit to exces
sive taxation, while clandestine sales
of liquor are constantly carried on.

or pursues his calling and gets a liv

Conditions in -prohibition states are
much -the same. Statewide prohibition
is a deadening blight to small towns
and villages. This was proved by the
experience. of lowa towns under pro
hibitioa and it is true of Kansas towns
today. There is plenty of evidence
that & the policy of state-wide prohi
bition has worked irreparable injury
to the mercantile business of Kansas,
North Dakota, Alabama, Oklahoma
and Maine; has impaired realty
aloes; has forced a decrease In mar
ket values of farm lands; has lessened
the rental value of property: has
fbroeght-about a larger c-number of
business failures during the year In
proportion to population than is the
case with Nebraska and other license
states. There are many capitalists
who will not permit their money to
be Invested in a state whose law
makers enjoin sumptuary regulations
upon the state. The best workers In
Industrial and agricultural pursuits
the wealth producing men of the
better grade, will not long remain in
a state which seeks to enforce sump
tuary laws. It is the policy of state
wide prohibition that puts a terrific
handicap upon a state, and deprives it
of an even chance with its sister
states in the race for Industrial and
commercial supremacy.
"How does it coire to pass that col
lection of beer taxes increase in Mis
souri, though some three-fourths of
the counties have voted prohibition oy
local option?" asks the SL Louis Re
public. That is a prohibition conun
drum and we give It up. ,
The question -is shall the thrifty,
wealth producing taxpayers of Ne-
.be forced" to submit to heavy
Jli4dttiOBal-4ax levies -just to satisfy
the ambitions of non-resident, emo
tional agitators? Shall Nebraska tax
payers be -.Assessed to make up the
deficit following a forfeiture of liquor
license fees-now -collected In villages
nd cities,;' which would be the only
certain result of the adoption of stat
utory prohibition? Why should the.
business men and property owners' be
compelled to pay the taxes which the
liquor traffic should be required to
pay? In any event liquor would be
consumed just the same. Citizens can
not be prevented from having liquor
shipped tothem for their personal
use, their right to do so having been.
affirmed by the United States supreme
court Every voter in Nebraska can
have all the liquor he wants shipped
to him regardless of state laws, but
of course he cannot sell It if statutes
forbid. Since many men will have
liquor, why not make the traffic pay a
local tax. thus relieving property own
ers of part of the cost of i tillage and
city government?
Lincoln, Neb., adopted th dry pol
icy in May, 1909, thus forfeiOag over
$40,000 of license fees annually. Six
months later, commenting on the sub
ject, the Daily Journal said: "The
increase in the consolidated levy over
last year amounts to 12.75 mills, the
greater portion of this being made by
the., school district, which of course
must have funds to take the place of
over $40,000 in license money which
it has lost. Its levy is increased from
19.5 mills. to 27 mills., Of this, 25 mills
is for general purposes and 2 mills
for the payment of bonds and inter
est." To be more specific, the above
recital jneaas that the dry. policy
adopted by Lincoln has saddled upon
the taxpayers an additional burden of
$65,000. This condition was brought
about by the emotional agitators who
pay no taxes, while the property own
er must dig down in his pocket and
make good the deficit
Two of the delegates to the national
convention of the W. C. T. U. in
Omaha mde addresses defending the
policy of' state-wide prohibition. Gov
ernor Robert D. Glenn of North Caro
lina and Mrs. Nellie G. Berger of Mis
souri went into the economic and so
ciological aspects of the subject They
both attempted to show a higher de
gree of average prosperity among the
people of Maine than existed in li
cense states. Governor Glenn reiter
ated the statement often made by pro
hibitionists that the people of that
state had' more savings placed to
their credit in the banks than was
the case with the people of license
states. He also made some general I
remarks about Maine prosperity which
should not be permitted to go unchal
lenged. There is no more reliable barometer
of the financial status of a state than
that which is given by the comptroller
of the United States currency. The
latter's report for 1907 is quoted be-
f cause the figures for that year mark
the high tide of nation-wide prosper
ity up to that fated day in October
when the panic put a stop to commer
cial and financial activity. The comp
troller shows that the people of Maine
had on deposit in national banks that
year $22,412,000. while Nebraskans
had on deposit at the same time
$73,942,000, which, making allowance
for the difference of population, puts
Nebraska, a license state, far ahead
of Maine on that score. In this connec
tion, it is Interesting to note that tht
peopl of Kansas, a state having per
haps a third more population than Ne
braska, had on deposit in national
banks in 1907 $64,978,000. or .some
ting like ten millions less than Ne
braska money-getters had. In propor--tion
to population Kansas should have
had a third more money on deposit
than had Nebraska.
The national banks of Maine in 1907
reported total assets . of $56,569,000,
while the assets of Nebraska national
banks footed up $132,909,000, or about
60 per f?nt more wealth in the banks
of Nebrjika.-than there was in Maine
banks. Taeassets of national banks
in Kansjts aggregated $110,476,000. or
about $&5pp.o6o less than the assets
of Nebraska national banks, with a
population a third greater than that
of Nebraska. The comptroller shows
that the average resources of Maine
people per capita as shown by the
wealth in national banks, was $77.28
while the per capita resources of Kan
sans in national banks was $66.73.
Here are two prohibition states set up
against Nebraska, a license state, the
per capita average resources in na
tional banks of Nebraskans being
From the report of the comptroller
another interesting comparison may
be made touching the capital stock in
state, national and private banks, and
loan and' trust companies. The aggre
gate amount of wealth under this
heading in Maine was $12,344,300.
while in Nebraska it was $22,278,140.
While these figures are greatly in
favor of Nebraska, It must be borne in
mind that Nebraska and western states
derive nothing in the way of material
gains from Maine, whereas the tour
ists who raise the population of Maine
very largely during the summer sea
son, spend millions of dollars annually,
so that Maine is drawing money from
many of the states of the west and
benefits through the prosperity of the
middle west states.
No business man, talking for. publi
cation, can afford to admit a falling
'off of daily sales. .Every business man
knows this to be .true. While Lincoln
merchants are suffering from the dry
policy prevailing -there, very "few of
them dare say so openly, yet a few of
them are telling-their friends that
they are sick of existing conditions.
The -Lincoln Herald, says:
"Many farmers for miles around have
ceased. coming to Lincoln and -go to
Crete, Sterling, . Hickman, pleasant
Dale, Wahoo, Eagle and Havelock for
their pastime and do. much. of their,
trading. People who used .to come
here from out over the .state for a few
days' recreation and to buy clothing
and other goods, now go to other cltt

Prohibition's Deadening Effect.
Dun's review of trade conditions.
Issue of Oct 2, 1909, on page '9. pre
sents a table snowing the commercial
failures in the several states for the
nine months of this year, .as. well as
for 1908. There is no truer sign of the
material conditions of a state than
that afforded by the record of commer
cial failures. During the last nine
months there were 75 commercial fail
ures in Maine, with liabilities of $1.
223,710. In Nebraska during the pres
ent year there were 100 commercial
failures, with liabilities of $874,962.
These liabilities aggregate about a
third less than the liabilities growing
out of the failures in Maine for the
same period. In other words, with a
population one-third greater than that
of Maine, the business failures of Ne
braska this year aggregate in losses
one-third less than the .total liabilities
of Maine failures.

During the year 1908, there were 123

Hon. Charles F. Libby, president, of
the American Bar association, .and
long a, prominent citizen of Malae. re
cently, made a public utterance de
nouncing prohibition. He (stated that
the policy of prohibition, had retarded
. the material progress of his state, and
had prevented a growth of population
which bad resulted in great injury to
the people.
The Portland Argus of Sept. 21st,
1909, in an editorial paragraph, says:
"For years Maine has barely held its
own in population, and in the last de
cade or two the rate of increase has
been the reverse of impressive. Pro
hibition has been a drawback- to
Maine. What progress the state has
made has been in spite of this heavy
The national monetary commission
has just laid an exhaustive report be
fore both houses of congress. It shows
the total money resources of the peo
ple of the several states based upon
official reports of conditions existing
April 28, 1909. This is the latest and
most authentic information about the
wealth of the people. Its accuracy
cannot be questioned.
Comparing the wealth of the people
of prohibition states with that of those
in license states reveals some highly
illuminating facts. For instance, Ne
braska's total banking resources per
capita are $214.92, while those of Kan
sas are $137.50. South Dakota, a li

Bank .clearings afford sure indica
tions of the state of business. Dun's
'Review of Nov. 13, 1909, has a report
of '.;thei; bank clearings as usual. All
ver the country, according to this
statement, bank clearings show a
steady; increase. "At some cities.
aotaWy St. Paul, Kansas City. Omaha,
SO Joseph and 'Denver, the increases
are large." A comparison of some of
the eJtles'Jn prohibition states with
those' in license states -affords food for
refection.- For instance, this report
shows that Portland, the commercial
center -of Maine, shows a decrease of
2.7 per cent in October bank clearings
as compared' with October. 1908. anda
decrease'of per cent for October, as'
compared with the figures or October.
1906.' Springfield, Mass., shows an in
crease of nearly 21 per cent. New
Haven, Conn., shows an Increase of
early 16 per cent. Birmingham, the
great Industrial center of Alabama, a
prohibition state, shows a decrease of
8.7- per cent in bank clearings in the
month of Octoberof this year, com
pared with those in the month of Oc
tober in 1908. Topeka.,Kan.. shows an
increase of 3.2 per- cent. The two
towns in Nebraska reported are Oma
ha, which shows an increase of 9.8 per
cent, and Fremont, which reported an
Increase of 12 per cent. At a season
of the year when there is great indus
trial and-eommerclal revival in all sec
tions of the country, and when a very
small percentage of cities show a de
crease in the volume of bank clear
ings, it Is a. significant fact that most
of the cities showing such decrease are
situated- In prohibition states.
In Bradstreet's report of 'bank clear
ings for the week ending Dec. 9, 1909,
there are represented 102 cities from
one end' of the country to the other.
All but ten show greater or less in
creases. Out of the ten cities showing
decreases (decline of business) four
are in prohibition states. The great
est falling off is in Alabama and Mis
sissippi,, states -which adopted prohi
bition about a year ago.
The Oklahoma Daily State Capital,
issue of Dec. 3, says that notwithstanding-the
heavy burden of taxation the
state treasury is empty and state war
rants are refused when presented for
payment,- drawing interest at 6 per
cent. The people of Oklahoma are
groaning under the excessive burden
of state and local tar levies due to the
ill effects of the prohibition law. The
newspaper, quoted., above contains au
item from Stillwater. Okla., as fol
lows: "Stung by an extravagantly ex
cessive high state tax, and declaring
that their taxes bad been raised from
50 'to 100 per cent over 1908, the tax
payers of Cimarron township, of
Payne county, have employed Attor
neys Biddisonie Eggleston.of Pawnee
:to represent them in a suit filed
against Payne county to seek some re
lief, if. possible, from the confiscatory
taxes Imposed .by a prohibition -administration."
; The merchants of Pittsburg, Kan.,
are protesting against the reformers,
who periodically demand enforcement
of the prohibition law. The Knnsan
, of that city in a recent issue said:
"Over a dozen merchants on Broad
way have, expressed their disapproval
of the law that has driven the trmiu
of the miners and their friends from
Pittsburg- to the camp stores auu
scrub, saloons. It's an outrage on the
merchants whose capital has been in
vested here. One man- who owns his
own building and has been in busi
ness here for years says he has oeeu
a prohibition sympathizer in the past
and thought 1t was all right, but, said
he, 'I never thought it would strike
Pittsburg; we had open saloons so
long I bad begun to thfnk we were im
mune from the operations of the pro
hibitory laws. 'Other laws are al
lowed to grow obsolete and I felt that
ltf would be the same with this law.
Even after the agitation began I
looked over the list of agitators and
saw so few men interested who were
city builders and taxpayers that 1
thought no one would heed them
much. Another Broadway merchant
said: 1 have the blue prints ready
for remodeling the front of my build
ing on all sides; what's the use in
me going la debt to enhance the value
of my property and be adding to my
taxes when there isn't business
enough uow to pay the present ex
penses.' If a canvass of the merchants
on Broadway were made, seven out of
ten of thenr-would say the mock en
forcement of a prohibition that is on
in this cjty is a detriment-to business
and of little or no moral force what
Secretary. Knapp of the Kansas
..state. board of control shows in a re-
.cent report that taxes levied in that
-state in 1899r state, county, city, town-
.ship and school district, amounted to
132,32.M,. and in 1907. for the
same -purposes, the levy was $20,498,-'
603.33. This Increase of over $7,000,

bitter controversy'In that state.
