    Responds to an article in The Times describing a meeting of the 'United Kingdom Association for the total Suppression of the Traffic in Intoxicating Liquors throughout the United Kingdom'. Observes that if intoxicating liquors are to be banned in the interests of public morality, then so should 'stimulating foods'. Argues that 'Gluttony is equally a vice with drunkenness' since men 'are probably guilty of more deliberate evils' owing to 'cramming and stuffing'. Concludes by noting that 'There are other intoxicating things' which should be banned if liquor sales are to be stopped, including honours and titles.
