It a a its the Outlook has Dia caused the prohibition question quite fully in the past few weeks and the following is its editorial summing up of its position on the que tion a position that to tit record seems fraught with much Good sense and Good logic. There is no question Between the prohibitionist and the anti prohibitionist As to the evils of intemperance. It is hardly possible to overstate them. The question is How can they Best be counteracted Mohammed believed that the Best Way to counteract them was by prohibiting to his followers All use of wine. Prohibition is one of the Cardinal Laws of mohammedanism total abstinence is not Only com. Mended As a virtue but commanded As a duty. Christ pursued a different method. He condemned drunkenness but he did not forbid the use of wine. On the contrary he drank it himself made it on one occasion by a Miracle and commended it to his followers in the sacred supper by which he asked them to commemorate him after he had died. This could not have been because he was indifferent to the evils of intemperance. 11 was because he thought there was a better Way to counteract those evils than the Way of prohibition. That better Way is the development of the whole Man such a development that the Man will bring All his appetites passions and Powers under the control of his higher nature. It is by in it parting to the individual the Power of self control of the appetite but no less of the temper of the palate but no less of the Tongue. It is by teaching the individual to see that the body is made to be the servant of the spirit and by endowing the spirit with such Power As will icee the body in subjection. Mohammedanism seeks to keep Man innocent by shutting him off from temptation christianity seeks to make Man virtuous by inspiring in him Power to overcome temptation. Prohibition does not prohibit very Well in Turkey but it is probably More effectual in constantinople than in Portland it is certainly More effectual than in Bangor. And yet after centuries of prohibition required by religion and enforced by Law the Turk is More sensual than the Christian. There Are More liquor shops in London and Paris than in constantinople but constantinople is a far More animal City than either London or Paris. The Outlook believes in the Christian method of dealing with intemperance it does not believe in the Mohammedan method. Or. Stewart asks Why not prohibit the Sale of liquor As we prohibit stealing the answer is that All stealing is a crime and All Sale of liquor is not a crime. Stealing violates the right of property and that is one of those primary rights which government is instituted to protect. Selling wine or Beer to a Man who wishes to Purchase wine or Beer does not violate a primary right which government is instituted to protect. It is a right of the citizen not to have his property taken from him by violence or fraud it is not his right not to have a bottle of wine or Beer offered to him if he wishes it. We do not doubt the right of the Community to regulate and restrict the liquor traffic. Ith Suie right to regulate and restrict any traffic that is extra hazardous to the Community and the liquor traffic is extra hazardous. There is the same justification for putting restraint upon the Sale of liquor that there is for putting restraint upon the Sale of Gunpowder dynamite and the More deadly poisons. We do not doubt that the Community has a personal character and a quasi personal will of its own and that it has a right in the exercise of that will to decide that it will have no open saloons. But the local Community the one which the Saloon is by some supposed to Benefit and by others supposed to injure is the Community to exercise this right of decision. The Saloon in new York City neither benefits nor injures except very indirectly the people of Buffalo therefore the people of Buffalo Are not to decide whether the people of new York City shall have saloons. For new York City and Buffalo substitute bar Harbor and Houlton it May not be altogether easy to define with exactitude what Are the boundaries of a local Community. But it is any to state the principle and it is a principle not impossible to apply. State is the act of one Community imposing its will on another Community. It cannot been forced because it ought not to be enforced local option is the act of the Comy Unity in the exercise of its own will. 11 is a corporate act of self control. Where there is a will there is a Way but when a Law prohibiting the Sale of liquor in the cities is carried by the votes of the Rural districts there is no will in the cities against the Saloon and therefore there is no Way to close them. It we bad the influence we would persuade All men to remain out of the saloons but if we had the Power we would not compel any Man to Rem tin out just As we would persuade All men to go to a Church but would not compel any. So if we had the influence we would persuade every local Community to close its saloons but if we iid the Power we would not e saloons in any Community against in. The intelligent Reader hardly to be told that Quot we speak of sane met Rittof mature age and in Normal com misites. We affirm the right and duty of Fiche is in Many Cash is to prohibit win and cigars to help pupils and to re quirk the attendance of their pupils at Church services. He who is inclined to believe in prohibition May reasonably ask us what alternative remedy we have to propose. Our answer shall not be wanting. The liquor traffic imposes heavy financial burdens on the Community. We would by a tax Transfer As much of these burdens As possible from the Community which now bears them to the liquor traffic which produces them. This is the basis of the demand for High License. It is not a contrivance for making the Community share the profits of the liquor traffic it is a contrivance for making the liquor traffic share the losses which it inflicts on the Community. We would give to every township and in the largest cities to every election District a right to vote on the question. Saloon or no Saloon. In some states perhaps eventually in All we would have the state assume the exclusive right to manufacture and sell liquor and so take away the incentive of private profit to push the Sale. We would prohibit the sunday Sale in some communities and restrict it in others. But we place no great Reliance on these or any other Legal restrictions. The most that Law can do is to make vice difficult and virtue easy. Vice must be overcome and virtue promoted by other Means. We would depend less upon Force and More upon persuasion less upon Law and More upon influence less upon restrictions and prohibitions of the traffic and More upon the moral and spiritual development of the Community. We would rather make one Man temperate by influence than ten men total abstainers by compulsion we would rather develop in one Man the Power of self control than control a dozen who could not or would not control themselves. It is to the moral and spiritual development of the individual that the Temperance Progress made during the nineteenth Century is chiefly due. The Progress is far More a result of changes in men than of changes in legislation. No Man who reads Lecky s account of the drunkenness which prevailed in England in the eighteenth Century or the incidental pictures of the social habits of new England in the same Century afforded by american biography can doubt that such Progress has been made. Drinking is More common in America than it was Century ago but drunkenness is less common. One ultimate remedy for the evils of intemperance then is making temperate men. And men Are temperate not when either their food or their drink is regarded for them by Law but when they have acquired the intelligence and the Power to regulate both for themselves. Edwart b.
