here at headed by John Livingston piloting a Waco The ships were to take off at 2 p m for Wausau after tak ing dinner at the local hangar WASHINGTONSept 12 Senator Burton K Wheeler Montana democrat ranked among the drys in congress issued a state ment today saying he had come to the opinion that national prohibi tion is a failure and that each state should be left to regulate the liquor traffic as a ma jority of its citi zena deem advis able His statement follows I voted for prohi b i t i o n in Montana because felt that the Id saloon was a I urse to the American people and I wanted to do away with it In the old days the breweries in BURTON many instances owned the fixtures Lhe buildings and the license and in many Instances controlled local politics I am no more in favor of the saloon no more in favor of the sale of liquor today than I was before but under prohibition you have in many cities more diyea land easies where they are openly selling rotten whisky than you had in the old days Today in many communi ties the bootlegger is becoming a greater political power and has more influence than the old time saloon keeper as evidenced by the fact that he is able to reach many of our higher officials He is gen erally a much lower type of citizen He has had a frightful corrupting influence upon our social moral and political life In view of the fact that this ad ministration and the previous ad ministrations have apparently been helpless in stamping out the evil I am reluctantly forced to the opinion that national prohibition is a failure and that each state should be left to regulate the liquor traffic as a ma jority of its citizens deem advis able Law Not Mentioned COLUMBUS Ohio Sept 12 Without the semblance of a fight over the prohibition question the republican state platform conven tion today adopted the platform submitted by its resolutions com mittee The platform did not men tion specifically the liquor question but called for enforcement of all laws
