BAKING DAY STEADIES DIFFICULTIES WITH PROHIBITION IN RUSSIA! (From The .Literary Digest) The 'wave of tennwrance ivhich swept Russia at the beginning of the War. after the Czar's ukase-'forbidding the sale ot spirituous liquors, is rapidly receding.' Deprived of the vodka, to which they were so strongly'addicted, the Russian we are told by some outspoken organs-of the press oMhnt country, are consuming various poisonous substitutes', the secret manufacture and sale of. which are nssinning considerable proportions throughout the Em- pire. of poisoning caused by these drinks are a dally occur- rence. Writing in the Russki Vratch Dr. NovoselskI gives interesting figures showing the growth of mortality dne to alcoholism in Petrosrad.. According to his official data, there were 26 cases of death from delirium tremens in the period'from August 17 to September. 13, 191-1; 33 cases from September 14 to October 11; 34 from October 12 to November S; 43 from November 9 to December 6; 53 from December. 7 to. January 3, 58. from January 4 to January 31, and 116 from Februnry 1 to February 2S. Commenting upon these figures, Dr. Novoselski writes; "The constant rise of the mortality figures, which, bears" the growing number of consumers' of different substitutes, shows that used not only by'confirmed drunk- ards, "ibtit 'gen'erallv by "those classes who before the prohibition law used to drink moderately From the report of the Hospital at Petrograd, it can be seen that among the victims of alcoholism who entered the hospital nere parsons of all ages tmainly twenty to thirty years of age) and all occupations." In Russia's western provinces, according to "R; ;G." In the does not seem to-be very popular. He says "The sun of.'sobriety'has'set before it reached die zenith. The first two months drunkenness was really not noticeable. In the villagesjthe that the law came into the busy season contributed largely toward abstinence from drink.. In the cities isolated cases, of the use of poisonous imitations of alcoholic beverages ended so deplorably that there was affair-prospect of getting rid-of incurable drunkards., 'flut here the Bald-work came tovan end, the organism had partly adapted itself to the harmful imitations, partly adapted them to itself, .and 'life entered upon its'-normar course-' The village folk had .hardly hiidytlmc to wear out the 'boots in which they marched alter the coffin of 'the mon- opoly' tens of thousunds of illicit liquor distillers, factories of all kinds of strong drinks, came Into existence It must fce saiiLthat the fight against the producers of such drinks Is being waged energetically Since the issuance of the circular offering a reward for the discovery of secret traffic m liquor the excise officials authorities have vigorously prosecuted the task According to official data, for the latter part of there nere discovered In Vilna government alone 58 Illicit liquor-distilleries, while for the preceding year there had been discovered 14 such places But in the place ot those suppressed new ones spring into existence, and, besides, the manufacture of alcoholic beverages is being practiced dwellings, "It is now ten months since the sale of liquor was discontinued After such a considerable time the stop- page of the traffic in liquor takes on a permanent character, and a. return to former order becomes'less and less possible. How- ever, it Tfoilld be naive ruinous to regard the work of reform as completed. On the contrary, this task is now all there is much of it, and the work is urgent. The stoppage of the sale of liquor hns undoubtedly made a revolution in the psychology of the masses Vodka played a great part in our peasant life, and its disappearance creafes'a greater or less vacancy which In some way or other must be filled It is therefore not surprising that the furtbar it is from the beginning o( the the more oiten there appesr reports about secret liquor-distilleries; the spread of imitations, dangerous not only for health, nut for lite itself There also come reports that the village lolk are becoming addlctwl to and that a passion for'H is seizing the whole mass of peasantry; In-short, everything noints to Uie fact that the soberlngrof people ean not be accomplished by simple discontinuance traffic In liquor. It 'is to employ their leisure in some interesting and Instructive so grandiose and full1 of beautiful- will yield'negative results" The' Novojre Vremya strong Mp-1 porter of prohibition, tewarks- "It must i" admitted that the great historical act by the traffic in liquor was -forbidden found the country far Irom nrevared to replace the drunken haze by pastime The Soor of the wipe-shops in which the people got a strong narcotic means of MlMiveraion from the eternally miserable conditions ot their closed, but only now has the nuosthm occurred, how to nil the spare time thus gained Now the ot keeolnt the people from drunken orgies is the .war aid the over- interest manifested toward it the most obscure corners of Russia. But the war will-end, and at hippy irfoment when the Allies will find It possible to conclude pnee, tne'scute question will arise, Will tho people wish to their In s sober manner, or will they drown it ,ii the poisonous ImltatlonB of the government liquor' That Is to Russia a oueillon of supreme importance Just a 'bare prohibition the war would 'be only an injunction which could be circumvented.
