Description

Opening paragraph:

When national prohibition was adopted it was never contemplated that our federal courts and prosecuting agencies would have to be greatly expanded to handle the 70,000 criminal and civil cases a year made necessary by prohibition. Formerly, the federal jurisdiction in the criminal field was practically restricted to offenses against the federal government and to offenses which were distinctly of an interitate character.
