MAY PASS CONGRESS
(By Parker H. Anderson) i
WASHINGTON. ? Representative
Yates Webb, of North Carolina, ad-,
vanead tfce cause ot nat!on-<wlde pro- I
hlbltlon materially yesterday when
as chairman of the house Judiciary i
committee he reported favorably the'
joint resolution amending the consti
tution to provide for national prohi
The voto in the committee was 12 .
to ?, the largest majority yet given |
the cause and the committee also j
recommended that the resolution be I
passed by the present Congress.
Mr. Webb is one of the strongest
supporters the prohibitionists have
In Congress or anywhere else. He
Is not. however, one of those who be
lieve In ''wild cat'' legislation against i
rum, but he has always been with the
prohibitionists and but for his ac-1
tlon today the bill would -perhaps
have remained in a pigeon hoi? Until
some two or three years hence.
There Is every reason to believe
that the Webb resolution will pass ,
Congress If It Is permitted to come to
a vote. The Hobeon resolution, sim
ilar to tho present proposed legisla
tion, received a, majority of tfcjtte but
failed to become a law because a
two-thirds vote Is necessary in mat
ters pertaining to the changing of
the constitution. Since the days-of
Hobson there has been a remarkable
tendency toward prohibition. Even
Washington city Is on the verge of
going dry and Virginia, the home of
the mint Jullp. has already voted
whiskey out of Its territory, forcing
thirsty Tar Heels to pay express
charges from Washington and Bal
timore on packsges of "wet" goods,
and numerous other states bsve
adopted the same plan. In short, the
states which now sell liquor are
getting down to a closo margin and
with th* active campaign which the
enemies of rum are making there Is
no doubt that they have a mighty
good chance to put the question up
to tho states to decide and that, too.
In i mighty short time.
