ITALY'S ROUTES TO AUSTRIAN
Italy hns massed heavy forces on its cis-Alpine frontier in readiness
for invnsion of Austria when hostilities open. Trieste will bo nn
immediate objective. Topographical difficulties in both tho Julian
nnd Carnic Alps bar a speedy Innd advance into the coveted "lost
provinces" taken by Austrin the middle of the Inst century, but the
Italian troops hnve been so well trained in mountain operations that
the Alpine obstacles may be readily surmounted if, ns is believed,
Austrin should prove unable to draw heavy defensive forces from
the Carpathians. Trans-Adrintic naval dashes furnish another
approach, but the sea has been sown with mines, nnd the Istrian
coast, down to Polo, the groat Austro-Hungarinn naval base, is well
fortified. Further, offensives against strong land positions are
always tedious, as is proved by the lengthy investment of Tsing-Tno,
and sometimes ineffectual, as is demonstrated in the present

'pHERE are some FACTS of Prohibition and Local Option
experience in Pennsylvania that are instructive:
g IXTY-TWO years ago, in 1853, the Legislature of this
State was induced to permit an election to determine
whether the voters would favor Prohibition. It was defeated.
A FTER the Civil War the anti-liquor agitators claimed, that
if Pennsylvania did not favor a State-wide ban upon stim
ulating beverages, then certain localities might favor Prohibi
tion. Here originated the phrase "Local Option."
J-jENCE, in the early 70s, or when Geary was Governor,
the Legislature gave authority for elections to be held in
wiui lots uruuns siuiuie cnea out
for another test of public sentiment in Pennsylvania on the drink
question. To satisfy the "dry" elementan election was held in
the Spring of 1889 over a proposed Prohibition amendment.
This was voted down by 188,000 majority.
QNLY this week the Pennsylvania Legislature, voicing the
opinion of its constituents, defeated an attempt to invade the
personal right to use alcoholic beverages.
HTHE FALLACY of Prohibition or Local Option is best known
A by the FACT that Census statistics have proven that in every
State where Prohibition or Local Option is tried, failure attends
all efforts to enforce the statute!
