PROHIBITION AMENDMENT DEFEATED

"The so-called liquor problem is one of vast and conceded importance, but it is doubtful if this nation ever reaches the point where it is willing to undertake the experiment of national prohibition along the lines proposed in the constitutional amendment rejected by Congress this week."

From and after that date the tax was paid by stamps, on which a deduction of 75 per cent, was allowed to brewers using them.

The Act of July 24, 1897, repealed the 71 per cent. discount. The Act of June 13, 1898, restored the 71 per cent. discount.

Under the Act of March 2, 1901, and April 12, 1902, no provision is made for any discount. The difference in quantities beginning with 1891 is to be accounted for as exported.

Includes $4,924.85, at $1.60 per barrel.

Of the $731,251.92 refunded, $102,139,85 was refunded from fermented liquors to brewers and $332.065.07 to others than brewers.

*Refund Data for 1914 not yet available.
