Locai Option Status of Towns in New York State

The following summary statement of local option statistics covering all of the towns in the State from 1897 (in which year the first vote under the present law was had) to 1917, inclusive, is of interest. While it shows a fluctuation of the vote in close towns, the decrease of forty-nine in the number of full license towns, the increases of two hundred and sixty-seven in the number of no-license towns, and the decrease of two hundred and seventeen in the number of partial license towns, and the decrease of nine towns in the State during that period, indicate the drift of public sentiment:
