    Excerpt from Liquor Legislation in the United States and Canada: Report of a Non-Partisan Inquiry on the Spot Into the Laws and Their Operation Undertaken at the Request of W. Rathbone, M. P

    Commons, and it appears to me to be one of the most important conditions of success that the Legislature should have accurate information as to the results of the aims at reform in progress in different countries, especially in the United States, from the enactment of the Maine Liquor Law to the present time.

    Very valuable papers have been issued by the Foreign Office on the subject; but the latest of them (issued in 1890) itself asserts that sufficient data have not been obtained to enable satisfactory conclusions to be formed as to the effects.

    It appears to me, therefore, that a report by a lawyer, uncommitted to any of the various schemes advocated for dealing with this subject, and accustomed to digest evidence and place it in a clear form before those who have to act, is almost a necessary preliminary to sound legislation.

    With this view I have consulted Mr. Justice Wright, who for more than eleven years gave me invaluable legal and other assistance - especially in his admirable collection and digest of the materials necessary for the consideration and the reform of the whole system of local government and taxation - and Mr. W. S. Caine, who was for many years president of the British Temperance Association, and has a deep interest in and a wide knowledge of the subject of temperance legislation. They agreed with me both as to the probable value of such inquiry, and that a report from you, made after inquiry on the spot as to the different experiments, would be entitled to public confidence.

    I shall, therefore, be obliged if you will proceed to the United States of America and Canada, to conduct such inquiry there, and I hand you herewith the necessary letters of introduction to facilitate your work.
