    More About State Dry Laws
3. Repeal cf the Eighteenth Amend
ment does not in the slightest respect
repeal the present prohibition laws in
effet in more than twenty States in
the Union. These State laws, made
before the Eighteenth Amendment
was put in the Federal Constitution, j
remain in full fcrc-3 and c'lect in each
State as before the ratification of the
Eighteenth Amendment. No power on
earth can modify or repeal them ex
cept by action of the people them
selves in each of the States.
4. Repeal of the Eighteenth Amend
ment is expressly conditioned upon
the adoption of the Twenty-frst
Amendment, which provides for pro
tection of North Carolina and all oth
er dry States against importation of
Intoxicating- liquors into the State in
violation of its laws.
5. Repeal of the Eighteenth Amend
ment simply says to New Yorl: and
other like States: “You can iegally
license the manufacture and sale of
intoxicating liquors in your State by
any plan you choose.’ It says to North
Carolina and other like States: “You
can refuse, as heretofore, to permit
the sale or manufacture of intoxieat
ing liquors in your Commonwealth.”
It simply restores full State rights in
the matter of manufacture or sale of
intqxicating liquors. That and noth
ir» O' rrmro
Therefore, t$ie speaker, opposing
Repeal, was as incorrect so far as the
legal effect of the repeal of the Eigh
teenth ’Amendment is concerned, as
was the pro-saiccn advocate, who
boasted that the pro-saloon crowd
would stampede the Governor and
the Legislature into action for the re
turn to the days of • the saloon and
the still.
Of course, it is true, with the re
peal of the Eighteenth Amendment to
the Federal Constitution, the pro-sa
loon forces will claim that it fore
shadows the repeal of State prohibi
tion laws, which would thereby se
cure another reign of the ills which
caused the people to ratify the Eigh
teenth Amendment and vote State
Prohibition in a majority of the states
prior to 1920. It may be fairly argued
that if the popular vote in North Car
olina should largely favor repeal of
the Eighteenth- Amendment, the pro
saloon forces would be encourage*1
in their desire to return to the open
and demoralizing salocn—the center
of vice and Crime as well as the dis
penser of liquor.
It is because of the fear of such aid
to the saloon that many opponents of
the saloon in North Carolina will re
* gister their votes againat Repeal.
They already realize that such vote
in this State would not stay repeal,
but they say to themselves: “If the
liquor traffic is to have a return, it
shall not be aided by my vote, direct
ly or indirectly. I tkke my stand
against any threatened return of the
barroom. I protest by my vote against
giving aid and comfort to those who
think more of the liberty to drink
and to get drunk than to the protec
tion of the home.”
Undoubtedly there are 'voters in
North Carolina who never did believe
in the policy or efficacy of National
Prohibition, whose States Rights con
victions have caused them to oppose
the Eighteenth Amendment and who,
when it was submitted, feared put
t's .ting "prohibition into' the National
Constitution would weaken State laws
and State enforcement. These men
will, therefore, consistently vote to
repeal the Eighteenth Amendment,
without in any way opposing State
prohibition or wishing to see the
Open Saloon debauching a new cro]5
of citizens. These sincere States
Rights men will continue to uphold
the right of North Carolina to protect

its people against the saloon and to
look to State and local authorities to
enforce State laws. Nobody can deny
that in many communities, the local
authorities have abdicated their duty
to enforce prohibition laws ahd have
leaned c.i the broken staff of National
enforcement. Vhe government at
Washington, except during the first
two years of National Prohibition,
never attempted a consistent and vi
gorous enforcement of National Pro
Leaning upon the strong arm of the
republic to do the ■enforcing of a Na
tional law, the State and local agen
cies of government have not generally
been cither diligent or vigilant.Therc
fore, National Prohibition has never
had a chance to determine its worth.
On the other hand, in numerous
States and localities, Prohibition,
whether National, State or local, has
demonstrated itssuperiori ty in every
way over the licensed Saloon. '
On November 7th, the pro-saloon
forec-s in North Carolina will seek
to secure a favorable vote for Repeal
a3 an entering wedge for the re-op
ening of the saloon, with all its cor
ruption and debauchery. This element
is even now thinking more about re
pealing North Carolina laws than
anything else. They see Repeal as a
.step towards satisfaction of appetite.
The strict States Rights people,
who have always opposed National
Prohibition because they regard regu
lation of the liquor traffic is strictly
a local matter, will also vote for Re
peal. But those of that class who
;.re really sincerely against the saloon
do not relish the bad company in
in which they find themselves.
To those saloonites and States
Rights advocates of Repeal will be
added, particularly among the young
voters, those who, knowing personal
ly nothing of the evils of the old
time saloon, feel that Prohibition has
not been a success. They are ready
to fiy to the ills they know not of
rather than to endure the violations
of Prohibition.
On November 7th, the opponents
of Repeal likewise embrace several
classes. A large number, believing in
the principle of National Prohibition.
Will vote their conviction that the
principle should not be repudiated,
even if there have been violations of
the law and it has not had a fair
Another element embraces those
who fear that if North. Carolina votes
for repeal of the Eighteenth Amend
ment, the action may or will lead to
repeal of State Prohibition laws. The
activity of the pro-saloon advocates
of Repeal gives ground for the fear
they entertain. Nobody who wants
temperance and opposes the saloon
can trust to their utterances or poli
cy. A few years ago the very vocal
pro-saloon advocates were telling us:
“Under no circumstances will we ever
favor a return of the saloon. All we
want is the sale of light wine and
beer because we believe these bever
ages v/ill promote temperance.” There
ar good people who made that state
ment and who were and arc sincere.
But they are not the vocal leaders
in the Repeal fight. These prate of
“temperance” and conveniently forget
that when Prohibition was stronger
they pledged themselves as against
a return of the saloon to debauch
people and again to be the stronghold
of liquor politicians. Their past record
and present protestation of adherence
to temperance should fool nobody. It
is a cloak for their soon-to-be-seen
advocacy of the disreputable saloon.
Perhaps the largest vote against
Repeal will come from those who,
having lived in the days of saloons
and having observed their debauchery
and demoralizing influence, wish to
record their solemn protest against
any act which might encourage pro
saloon advocates in their desire for a
return to the Red Lights and drunk
enness which disgraced the State be
fore State Prohibition was put upon
the statute books.
No reference is made here to the
element which looks to securing rev
enue from saloons and stills in the
hope that they will thereby secure a
reduction of their taxes. Let that
pass. We always have with us the tax
dodgers who would put the dollar
above temperance and the protection
of the home.
The real light in North Carolina on
the liquor problem, therefore, will not
come on Novomber 7th. Independent
‘“"it in this State on repeal
of the
of the Eighteenth Amt..
than enough States to bring about
repeal are assured. The vote on No
vember 7th may influence further
State policies. A big majority for Re
peal would be hailed by the pro-sa
loon forces as presaging a repeal of
State Prohibition laws. Those among
them who are enamored of saloons
and saloon politics, which disgraced
the State in the last generation, will
attempt to secure action by a special
or general session of the Legislature,
without submission to the people. All
others will agree that no attempt to
change the present Prohibition laws
will be made, or should be made, until
the regular session of the Legislature
in 1935 can submit the question to the
Let every citizen bear in mind this

Don Wallace, resident of North
Fork Township who on last Saturday
took to himself a bride, Tuesday left
a widow .when he expired in an Eli
zabethton Hospital from the effects
of a bullet fired point blank into the
adbomen, allegedly by Ferd Wilson,
25, neighbor.
The shooting which occurred on
Sunday evening in the neighborhood
in which both young men lived, is
believed by officers to have been a
result of jealousies existing between
the two on account of the young lady,
who twenty-four hours previous the
dead man had promised to love, hon
or and cherish. The tragedy took
place, it i3 said, near the Tennessee
line, and from reports The Democrat
is able to gather, no word was spoken
' as a prelude to the shooting.
