DRUNKENNESS BACK lS AT PRE-PROHIBITION LEVEL IN REPUBLIC Conclusion of Moderation League, Inc., Based on Nation-Wide Survey VOLSTEAD ACT'S FAILURE More Drunken Drivers and Drinking Among Children on Increase Larger Annual Crop of Drunkards a poller of wise restrlctton e the incidental advantage mating: almost entirely the scandalous corruption and bribery of public officials, would - slop the growth of the bootlegging millionaire class, would check disrespect for the law, and would in addition produce a handsome national revenue." STEAMER MOON WRECKED Crew Saved When Ship Went on Scatarie Island - (By Associated Press.) New York, Sept. 26. Drunkenness In the United States last year Increased almost twice as fast as it did in 1924 and now has -.cached its pre-prohibition level, the Moderation League, Inc., reports, announcing the findings of a nation-wide survey of conditions in more than 1,500 cities. Reaching the conclusion that " the Volstead Act has failed utterly to promote temperance and sobrietv." the report expresses the belief that " a ' greater degree of temperance would be attained by a wise restrictive law " ' Halifax. September 26. C. H. Harvey, local ngont of the Marine and Fisheries Department, reported tonight that he had been advised that the steamer Moon was wrecked on the south side of Scatarie Island Saturday morning. The crew was saved. The Moon, which is not listed in local shipping records, is said to be owned by a Mr. MacDonald, of Sydney. , VICIOUS DOG BIT WILL VOLUNTARILY 5 VERDUN CITIZENS! REDUCE ORIENTALS i Rabies Suspected and De-'B.C. Lumbermen Protes stroyed Animal Shipped to Ottawa for Inspection 'GLOOMY DEAN' SAYS BRITAIN IS PAST ITS ZENITH (Continued from Page One) -I flZtZ, I Y.y x'as the seconi:1 conducted by the League, a similar finding: as io the effectiveness of enforcement under the Volstead Act having been announced last year The league Is an organization composed of men from all ranks of life and is incorporated under the laws of the State of New York with its announced object the "Restoration of xcinperance. xne league bases its findings on reports obtained from police department records of intoxication arrests which in 884 cases extended back w?ive years. When on the basis of these records, the report states, "we consider that drunkenness generally has already increased to the pre-prohibition level, and that drunken drivers and drunken children have increased far abeve anything ever known before in this country, we cannot escape the conclusion that the A'olstead Act has failed utterly to do what it was intended to do, namely, promote temperance and sobriety. " Moreover, since conditions have become worse, not better, each year, and with the ' next generation ' drinking as never before, there seems to be no hope that the Volstead Act, in its present drastic form, can ever accomplish its purpose. During 1914 and 1915, before the war boom got under way, drunken ness remained practically stationary, the report states. "During 1916 and 1917, war boom years, there was a perceptible increase, following the known rule that, : , other things being equal, drunkenness increases with good times arid decreases with hard times. "In 1918 and 1919 emergency wartime restrictions on alcoholic beverages (far short of bone-dryness, however) were imposed. Drunkenness took an astonishing drop during those years. Near the end of 1919 the Volstead Act went into effect. In 190 there was a further drop which the 1921 rise wiped out. Since then there has been an increase each year, so that by 1925 there were more arrests for drunkenness than in 1914." "DRY" STATES ARE WORST. Conditions in the former so-called "dry" states are worse today, the renort stales, compared with 1914 than are conditions in the so-called "wet" states. ' Perhaps one reason for this greater increase in drunkenness in -the 'dry' states," the report says, " is that most of these so-called ' dry ' states were not really so; but were, in the main, merely restrictive. "The most curious result of national bone-dryness," the report states, "is the remarkable increase in the number of drunken drivers. "The number of drunken drivers before national prohibition was more or less constant from year to year, showing only small fluctuations, with a tendency toward a gradual rise ' commensurate with the increase in the number of automobiles," the report says. The reason lor mis tuunnuun "-crease in drunken drivers seems , fairly clear, the report stales. "After prohibition one could not purchase -intoxicants, or ut least safe' intoxicants, almost uny where, as previously. This necessitated procuring an nmplo supply a case or bottle in advance, and it was then carried around on the hip or In. the car arid consumed in trunsit. Drinking before prohibition was largely done Indoors; and after prohibition, from a flask on the road." figures obtained from public welfare organizations and police officials, the report states, shows an alarming Increase under prohibition of Intoxication among minors " This can only mean, it states, " that each year we are raising a new crop of drunkards which is much larger than the annual crops wo used to raise, even under tho saloon." Kummlnff up xne rosuun w no nm-very, the league announces: " From the experience, before national prohibition, of the slates which hud restrictive laws, from the experience of the whole country during the- restrictive years 1918-1919, und from the experiences of tho Canadian provinces and tho Scandinavian countries, we believe that a greater decree of temperance can bo attained bv a wise restrictive law than by a i iu uhlrh does not com mand the respect of a large part of selves to be British as the few foreign dwellers in French colonies usually feel themselves to be French. In spite of the incapacity of the French as colonists, which has of ten been exaggerated, it cannot be denied that the bright and genial if superficial, civilization which they bring makes their rule more accept able to their subjects than the tin sympathetic justice and non-interfer ence which we offer in conjunction with the opportunity to trade and make money. , "The future of Canada Is problem a Heal," he says, "for although the ambition of its inhabitants is to make it a great self-governing nation, there Is not the old antipathy on the part of a large proportion of its population, the French Catholics, to the Un ited States. "The number of Irish, Italians and Poles In the United States is now so great that the Roman Catholic Church is acquiring great political influence, intimidating journalists and politicians, and threatening to interfere with the system of national educa tion. The French Catholics would now have nothing to fear from ab sorption. There is also a very large number of citizens of the united States who have settled in Canada, and who do not disguise their expectation that the whole continent will one day be brought under their flag. Along her whole fr6ntler Canada has the quick-witted Americans, eager to share in the exploitation or tne na tural Yesources of the country. "The chief safeguard of Canada Is really that it is not in the interest ot the United States to conquer it For more than one hundred years England has submitted, for the sake of Canada, to a series of affronts and injuries which would not have been tolerated from any other na tion, and we have stood between America and any project of a European coalition. If the British flag were hauled down on the North American continent it is more than possible that the nations of Europe, enraged by the bloated prosperity and airs of superiority of 'the man who fiOYi by the war.' would combine to draw Shylock's teeth; and Great Britain, after losing Canada, would no longer have any motive to help a nation which, in ihe circumstances supposed, would have finally forfeited its friendship. "Nevertheless it is posslbls that x movement in favor of annexation may spread in Canada, since that country is more and more imitating the civilization and point of view of Ha powerful neighbor.' Six persons were attacked and five were bitten by a dog which was later captured by the Verdun police on LaSalle boulevard, near Gordon ave nue, Verdun, at 7 o'clock Saturday night. Tho dog, a brown terrier, had a muzzle which hung Iooed from its collar. Before its capture the animal showed signs of being sick, and shortly after it was captured it died in tho yard of the station. The dog showed characteristic signs of rabies. The police were told by all tho victims that the animal was running quietly past them when it snapped at their legs and rushed on. There was no license on its col-lur. Constables Beauregard and Pa-quette made the capture after they had been notified by W. Miller, of 283 Desmarchais boulevard, that he had been bitten by the dog on La Salle boulevard, near his home. As the two constables approached the place, they saw the dog running ahead of them in the direction of Ar thur Howatt, of 199 Knox street, who had his back turned and-did not see the animal. The policemen shouted to him, but he did not hear them, and as the dog passed him it snapped at him. The constables had been asked by Inspector Champion, of the Ottawa Department of Agriculture, to capture the animal alive if possible. They slipped a cord around its collar and, holding it outside of the side car of their motorcycle, brought it to the station. Early Saturday morning W. F. Wilson, of 3872 Allen avenue, Verdun, was bitten. , He reported to the police that the dog attacked him on LaSalle boulevard, near Hickson avenue. The previous night Miss M. Brlsehols, aged 17, of 396 Third avenue. Verdun, was . bitten while walking on Gait avenue, near Verdun avenue. A few minutes later John Ryan, aged 35, of 3650 Fifth avenue, Verdun, was bitten near the same corner, and shortly after George Robitaille, of 308 Gait avenue, Verdun, was attacked near the saane place by the dog. which tore his trousers. Dr. Armand Carreau, of 411 Wellington street, gave treatment to Miss Brisebois and to Ryan. Wilson was treated at the special clinic at the Royal Victoria Hospital. The dead animal was sMpped Ottawa, for thorough examination Against Working of New Minimum Wage Law Victoria, B.C., September 26. De finite plans by which Oriental labor the luio would be eliminated from ber industry of British Columbia over a period of ys&rs through iuccessive reductions, were lu,ld before the pro vlnclal Government here yesterday by a large lumbermen's allegation which appeared to protest against tn workings of the new minimum- wage law. In a memorandum which was mud miblic after the meeting wlti. th Cabinet, tho lumbermen outlined scheme bv which thev wouid volunt arily accomplish the chiet object or the act the reduction ot Asniiu iu" to a minimum. Under this nlan twentv-flve per cent, of the Orientals now employed would be dismissed during the first year of tho new law's operation twentv-flve tier cent. the second year, and so on until only a fw Orientals were left in jobs which white men refuse to fill. The scheme would require the addition of six hundred new white men to the lum ber payroll of the provinci the tirst year in .place of Orientals, the lum bermen stated. This would involve heavy sacrifices on the part of those who have invested in the industry.

AUTOS Of 555 Persons Killed on Streets, 238 Were Under Fifteen Years (Special to Tho Gazette.) New York, Sept. 26. Five hundred and fifty-Tive persons more than lost their lives in the Florid. hun-lcane were killed by motor vehicles in New York city streets between January 1 and September 1. This number includes 317 persons more than fifteen years old. and 238 children younger than fifteen. And the most startling figure of all is the record of 54 children killed in the streets In June nearly two a day. These statistics were made public today in the bulletin of the City Club of New York, which confirms its findings by the reports of the chief medical examiner. More than half of the children killed, namely 132, ac cording" to the City Club report, were between the ages of five and ten. Fifty-four were from ten to fifteen yfcars. and fifty-two were babies less than five years old. ''With a vengeance, this is muni cipal murder." says the report of the City Club, of which Henry H. Curran is counsel, "because the city can, but does not, scatter the clustered skyscrapers to whose appetites the motor crirs minister; because the city an, but does not. regulate the roar ing motor monsters as tney speed through narrow streets filled with children at play; because the city can, but does not, establish more and still more parks and playgrounds where children may play in safety in stead of being entirely confined to the motor thronged streets; because tne city can, but does not, do something about it. ' "It Is true that skyscrapers are not responsible for all of the motor vehicles that kill New York children New York's streets. But sky scrapers are responsible and direct- v so for most, if not an. ot tnese murderous vehicles that swarm the streets of New York." i A curb on skyscrapers In already onsrested districts has been a favor- te of Mr. Curran and the City Club for several months. Recently a re ommendatlon was made to the muyor's committee on city planning and survey to re-zone the city, so that a check could be placed on the construction of tall buildings on nar- ntv streets. Building figures for new snyacrap- rs have taken a now spurt recently. according to figures which the City luh obtained from the bureau ot huildines. From January 1 to Beptemoer -th hese figures disclose, plans nave been filed for Manhattan for seventy ew non-residential buildings, eacn or hich will be more than twelve stor- ys high. This number consists or wenty-nine hotels, twenty-three of fice buildings and eighteen factory buildings. Eighty thousand people ill work In these new atrucutres, me bulletin points out.
