John Adams and Prohibition

August 1921
America;8/27/1921, Vol. 25 Issue 19, p450
The article discusses the Campbell-Willis bill in the U.S. Senate which has a clause forbidding the violation of the U.S. Constitution in enforcing the Prohibition. The author says that the U.S. House of Representatives will not agree to the bill and at most will forbid a Federal officer to enter a private residence without a warrant, but permit the officer to seize or search the citizen's effects and other properties without a warrant. He cites the remarks of bar-room politicians and the Constitutional issues in the enforcement of the Prohibition.
