PRICE NEVADA Here and There •Editorial By ALEX. H. WASHBURN- ®- DRY BY 54 A CTUAL living law isn't what is merely written down in some dusty statute-book, nor is it something that men furiously fight over in the heat of an election. The one is so old, perhaps, that men have forgotten it; the other, so new that they think of it in terms of a campaign issue rather than a law. We are grimly reminded of this fact , _. _ — <j|by the election returns printed in today's Star from Nevada county, where a liquor referendum was held Tuesday. At this writing, with all but two precincts complete, thc score is 463 for the "drys" and 409 for the "wets" —s "dry" majority of 54. That probably is thc final story. It would be important, except for thc fact that it has happened time and again—yet no permanent good has Jthiopia Says ' to Peace Plan of British, French Won't Permit "Rewarding of Italy" for Her Invasion of Ethiopia SELASSIE~"ON SPOT" Addis Ababa Reveals Peace Plan Might Cost Emperor His Throne By the Associated Press Ethiopia said "No" Wednesday to the latest effort to end its East Afri- ccm war with Italy by negotiation. Scarcely had the peace terms agreed upon by Great Britain nnd France been dispatched to Addis Ababa before the empire's minister in Paris announced that his government is unalterably opposed to any settlement of the Ilalo-Elliiopinn war which would reward Italian aggression. Would Unseat Selassie ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia.—(Copyright Associated Press>—High government officials asserted Wednesday that . Emperor Haile Selassie would lose l& throne if he da.rod : ac.cept the pro- 5'sed Franco-British peace plan'."""" The proposals, reported authoritn-' lively to be based on an exchange of territories between Italy and Ethiopia, were described by officials us "a reward to Italy for breaking her covenants, and another device to delay further sanctions." Emperor Lucky WITH EMPEROR HAILE SELASSIE. Dcssye. Ethiopia.—(/P)—Technical experts who examined the bombs dropped in Italian air raids at Dessyc last week said Wednesday that Emperor Hailc Selassie probably owed his life to the fact that many of thc propcctiles didn't explode. Peace Plan Modified WAR1S, France—(/p)—Premier Laval announced Tuesday night that a Franco-British peace plan, with both nations in perfect accord on its text, has been sent to Rome and Adrllb Ababa. Laval said "minor changes" had been made in the plan at the request of Jhe British government, but did not disclose what they were. Under the pence proposal, the following "doiils" are provided: Ethiopia to got a port in Eritrea. T.iE'X- province tu be. given to Italy except for the holy city of Aksuin and a connecting strip of land. A large area of .southeastern Ethiopia lo bu given to Rome. A zone of coloni/ation to be established under Italian auspices in jiiopia. 'V treaty of administrative and fi- iunclnl assistance to be drawn up between Ethiopia nnd thc League of Nations. Diplomatic sources heard that Premier Laval, informed there was "every chance" that Mussolini will agree to negotiate- fur Ethiopian peace, will a.sk that discussion of an oil tmbargo against Italy be postponed at Geneva. come of it. ! Time and again communities have I shouted a legal curse at the ghost of old John Barleycorn but witchcraft in law i.s no more effective than witchcraft in medicine. Most human ailments, whether of the community or the individual's own body, are solved only by painstaking study and analysis. The fact about that Nevada county election is simply this: That when any community is divided approximately 50-50 on a matter of criminal law enforcement there is no known body of police which is going to proceed against offenders. In this instance, all law has been abolished—regardless what thc statute-book says, and regardless what the friends of the referendum expected. XXX We had the same story in Hemps tend county in the federal referendum on the 18th Amendment July 18, 1933. The Hempstead county "drys" polled 943 votes, and the "wets" 841 votes— a "dry" majority of 102 for the county. But the City of Hope polled 283 for the "wets" and 233 for the "drys"— a "wet 1 ' majority of 50. -:'".,: '-"NoHhojt.eo.ove^ njc v ot>t-anylhiiig except, this: .ThaCrncn. are, and always, have been, hopelessly divided on this question—and this is a newspaper writer who has himself changed his position since 1928. There has got to be some compromise on the liquor question—and The Star has, ever since 1933, worked at that thankless task. We wave no election flag, and get no cheers; we offer a program based on the true facts of police and economic studies, but are greeted by silence. Thc governor of Arkansas, J. Marion Fu troll, recommended to thc legislature last spring that thc state set up just such a publicly-owned system of liquor dispensaries as was advocated by John D. Rockefeller, Jr.—yet the alleged temperance forces of thc stale refused to consider that compromise. The tcmporance^forces stayed away from the legislative hearing, and the Thorn package-store law was drafted without benefit of clergy. With the governor's recommendation already published, the temperance forces had only to speak the word and we would today have had one publicly-owned liquor store in Hope instead of six privately-owned stores. Th fcrablc. But as between the latter and this tclal prohibition which thc friends of thc referendum advocate there can be no choice—regulated sale means enforcement of whatever law we do have, while prohibition means utter absence of any law at all.
