Prohibition will work great injury to the cause of temperance. It is a species of intemperance within itself, for it goes beyond t he bounds of reason in that it attempts to control a man's appetite by legislation, and makes a crime out of things that are not crimes. A Prohibition law strikes a blow at the very principles upon which our government was founded.
