During the hard electric storm

ed the hay. But Mr. Irvin lost 100

it should not be forgotten that we se-

try began seriously to feel the disturb-

the year in which the after effects of
the war were likely to be most in evi-
It should not be forgotten that be-
! tween those two years there was a
large increase in population in many
of the counties under consideration.
This was especially true of Philadel-
phia and Allegheny counties. |
We requested he district attorneys
to furnish us the number of cases re-
turned to court for triai by commit-
ting magistrates in the two years un-
der consideration. We received accu-
rate and definite reports from thirty
counties. Two of these were Philadel-
phia and Allegheny. The other twen-
ty-eight are fairly representative of
the entire State. From the reports
received we are able to compile the
following tables showing the number
of cases returned by committing mag-
istrates in 1914 and in 1920; also
showing the decrease and the percent-
age of decrease.

We have had several rains of late,
Recently the Anti-Saloon League
made,_inquiry of the District Attor- |
there had been in their respective coun-
| ties an increase or decrease in crime
In order to obtain ex-
plicit information we took the year
11914 and asked for a comparison with
1920. In comparing these two years
number of cases fell off from 1,742 to
914. The largest increase was in Bea-
ver county where there were 361 cases
in 1914 as against 476 in 1920.
In addition to the above we secured
reports from 24 counties on the num-
ber of cases returned for trial for in-
fraction of the liquor laws. The num-
ber of such cases in 1914 was 716. In
1920 there were 544 cases, being a de-
crease of 22 per cent. This marked
decrease of prosecutions for violation
of the liquor law may inean one of
two things: It may mean that there
is a greater laxity in prosecuting this
particular crime than there was under
the old high license system in 1914.
On the other hand if the vigilance and
efficiency of the officials in 1920 was
on a par with that of 1914 it proves
that there is less actual violation of
the law than there was under the old
“high license system. Be that as it
' may these figures give a black eye to

the argument that men are more obe-
dient to restrictive laws than they are
to prohibitory laws. The comparisons
furnished herewith are from counties
containing over 60 per cent. of the
population and prove conclusively that
there has been a decrease instead of
an increase in crime in this State since
prohibition went into effect. They al-
so indicate that violations of the
liquor law are more frequent under
license than under prohibition. .
