COMPLETE FAILURE OF

THE attempt to suppress the consump-
.tion of alcoliol by means of a Ukase
of the Czar may be considered to have
failed completely. The same methods
which are customary in America to cir-
cumvent the prohibition regulations are
also used in Russia, with the difference, at
the most, that in the empire of the knout
bribery is resorted to much more ex-
tensively than would be possible in the land
of the stars and stripes. '.'hoever has
enough money to pay the prices, which
have increased enormously because of the
new prohibition, can procure everywhere
=15 much beer, wine or whiskey as he
wishes. The whiskey flask has, it is true,
betn hung rather high for the common
De0Pie. It is reported from a single dis-
‘rich that of Jenissei, that in the year 1915
no less than 4,500 people were punished
for the manufacture and sale of whiskey.
On the other hand, the Rusrleofe Nawo re-
ceived the following report from Pensa on
January 17th: “In the course of the past
ten days altogether 8,000 bottles of brandy
and wine were sold to fill ‘physician's pre-
5C"lDtions' and with the permission of the
police. In the drug stores a large sale of
liquor for ‘medicinal’ purposes could be ob-
served during the holidays." The fiasco of
the Russian anti-alcohol campaign cannot
Wsslbly be depicted more clearly than in
