In lieu of a detailed statement showing the number of persons licensed by local authorities to sell liquors, Table XIII, drawn from the figures furnished by the Commissioner of Internal Revenue, furnishes a suggestive picture of the distribution of liquor dealers to population in the different States and Territories. The States showing the smallest proportion of dealers to population are, in their order, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Arkansas, Alabama, Tennessee and Vermont. All have more than 1,000 population to each dealer, and all, with one exception, are Southern States. At the other extreme are for the greater part the far Western States, and conspicuous as having the smallest population to each dealer are, in their order, Nevada, California, Montana, Washington, Idaho, Arizona, New Mexico, etc.

Of course the figures in the table only approximate actual present day conditions, but are none the less significant. If further light were needed to show how State-wide prohibition breaks down, it is at hand in the number of persons who pay a special tax to sell liquor where all sale is forbidden. Thus Kansas has actually a larger number of liquor sellers than Kentucky, which always has been under license and surpasses in this respect several other license States. North Dakota exhibits fewer inhabitants to each liquor seller than the license States of Nebraska, South Dakota, Ohio, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Texas, etc., to mention only a few of them. Oklahoma apparently pays about the same respect for her constitutional prohibition. Maine, as usual, is also well to the front with violators of the law. This much is certain: If a strong public sentiment supported this sumptuary legislation the conditions as depicted by the official figures would not exist.
