Dr. Bratt hits been 'lauded, condemned idolix.ed and ridiculed, and his work has become the themo of almost daily discussion in the newspapers of Swed- en, some of which criticise him for being too moderate, and others toi extreme in his reforms. But on one point all are' agreed: the system works. In the first place, the liquor com- panies, while directed by private indi- viduals, were practically, made gov- ernment coueunis, for all profits were to go to the government.

It was followed by careful supervision of the supply of liquor furnished to hotels, restaurants anil public bars. These places still had a "right to as much liquor as they required, hut th._ were only allowed profit on a reason- able 'amount of trade. If they did business in excess of that amo.unt fixed by the government, they had to purchase this additional supply at re- tail price, and were forced to Bell at the same prices. This, it would seem, would have removed the zealous effort of hotei proprietors to make their liquor trade as large as possible. Dut none of these expedients was successful. The total consumption of liquor was scarcely diminished. The amount of drunkenness in Sweden showed no decrease, and hospital and medical records were as full of alco- holic patients and cases of illness caused by alcoholism as before. It was evident that the decrease In the amount of liquor sold at hotels and bars was offset by the increased busi- ness done at wine stores, where cus- tomers bought as much bottled spirits as they liked, and took it home for consumption.
