"Drys" Win Fight Agaimt Mayor Simpson, Dartmouth, Results of in N.S. HALIFAX, Feb.' for the civic rulers of towns in Nova Scotia were held yesterday. In many respects the most notable contest was that in Dartmouth, where Coll I. W. Vidito defeated Mayor H. C. Simp- son by 2G5 votes. The "dry" forces worked hard for the colonel, while the "wets" went solidly for the mayor, whose recent excessive issue ot liquor prescriptions, tho mayor being a physician, caused his conviction in the police court for violation of the Temperance Act. The final vote showed 769 for Col. Vidito and 504 for Mayor Simpson. The closest contest reported in the province was at Inverness, where Mayor Henderson was re-elected over his opponent, D. A. Mclsaac, by a ma- joHty of seven. In New Waterford, the entire labor ticket, headed by Mayor Ling, was elected and in Dominion, virtually the lame held good, the only candidate elected not endorsed by the labor party being himself and independent j labor candidate.

Expect Fordney Bill To Give Its Last Kick Today Opponents of Bill Can Defeat Closure Move By Margin of Ten Votes WASHINGTON, Feb. The Republican attempt to fores clos- ure for consideration of the emer- gency tariff bill was defeated to- day in the senate. The vote'Was 35 for adoption of closure to 35 against, far less than the two-thirds majority. WASHINGTON, Ford- ney emergency bill 'was expected to breathe its last gasp in the senate today. That the necessary two-thirds could be mustered in the vote on adoption of closure .providing for limitation of debate in order that the measure might be brought to a final vote was conceded to bo practically hopeless by the most ardent support- ers of the closure resolution. Oppo- its were conceded to control a margin of from eight to ten' votes. Failure to adopt closure will mean the sidetracking of the bill in favor of pressing appropriation measures. On the eve of the closure vote the tariff bill yesterday was subjected to a deluge of belated amendments. Sen- ator McCumber, Republican, North Dakota, proved to be the only consist- ent of the hill during the debate which was marked hy an attack by opponents on the ground that by in- creasing the cost of living it would MILLIONS OF UNDEVELOPED WEALTH INS.

"In Manitoba, according to re- ports, a moderation league has tieon formed for the purpose ot protesting against the liquor laws now in force in the province, and presumably to agitate in favor of a referendum on the Question of appeal for the prohibition of im- portation by private individuals for beverage purposes.

"Nor, it is stated, could a prov- incial legislature undertake to vary the measure of prohibition imposed under the act In conse- quence of a referendum. This would seem to indicate that the petitions reported as being cir- culated in Alberta in favor of provincial government sale of li- quors without prescriptions would be futile." DUBLIN. Feb.
