AN EVIL CUSTOM.
Among the social customs which
make for drunkenness, that of
"treating" has reached the dignity
of legislative discussion.
A short time ago the Michigan
house passed a bill making treating
an offense; the bill, however, failed
in the senate, which adjudged it
The custom seems to be native
with us, and so far has had no vin vindication
dication vindication either in manners or mor morals.
als. morals. It is the popular thoroughfare
over which the moderated rinker
passes to drunkenness, and it is
natural! one of the pillars of the
whole drunkard making business.
That an anti-treating law would be
of substantial help to the morals
of a community, in that it would
be a restriction upon temptation
and reduce bar drinking to the
minimum, did not weigh with
the solons of the Michigan senate
as against the charge, sure to be
brought against them, of "sumptu "sumptuary"
ary" "sumptuary" legislation.
And so Michigan must continue
her labors in this reform without
legislative help. Northwestern
