MAKE fines and jail sentences more drastic for anyone found guilty of selling, manufacturing or transporting more than one pint of intoxicating liquors, and in every case of violation attach a jail sentence, minimum 90 days for first offenders, minimum 365 days for second offenders and for a third offense a penitentiary sentence of not less than five years.
Let the government offer a substantial reward to persons who turn in information to the proper authorities which would lead to the arrest and conviction of violators; this reward to be not less than $100 per violator. Also this reward should be increased for second and third offenders. This would have a tendency to make the general public one solid enforcement body and thereby relieve the several governments of large payrolls for law enforcement officers who under present conditions cannot enforce the 18th Amendment as expected of them by the public as a whole. Huge sums are literally thrown away in salaries at present. The proposed fines would more than pay the above mentioned rewards, with a good profit to spare and at the same time get the desired results by enforcing the 18th Amendment.
