AN The-Edmonton Saturday News in its last issue said: At a later stage in the debate. Hon. Mr. .Gushing said that he had all his life both in practice and pre ccpt, advocated prohibition. He felt it would be in the best.inter- ests of this country if it had total prohibition. But whatever the in- dividual views of n man on this! question, when it came to placing' legislation on the.statute book, there must be reasonable ground to feel that it could be enforced." Mr. Cushing's words remind one too much o: the honeyed eloquence with which Hon. Oeo. W. Ross us- ed to stave off temperance delega- tions. Jt matters not in the slight est what Mr. Cushing's views as a. private individual ure. He was speaking in tKis instance as a mem ber of the legislature and as a Ca- binet Minister, lly :cither'believes as a public policy or he does not. He cannot avail him- self of two personalities in the mat tcr without getting into trouble. If it is doubtful whether there is "reasonable ground to feel that it could be we do not sec how at time thu Minister I of'Public Works can "feel that "it! be in thus interests of; the "country, if it had total prohi- bition." j The News is trying to get a slap] at Mr, Cushing without any reason whatever. The Minister of Public Works says he believes prohibition 1 would be in the best interests of A I- t berta if it could be enforced. That's! defensible utterance. He be- Sieves in prohibition, "but there must] tie'reasonable ground to believe thatj it can be enforced." Certainly. Mr. i .Cushipg is a sensible man and he! certainly docs not -want prohibition; an a law if it cannot be enforced. He.; knows full Veil, that the principle, he believes suffer under auch circumstances. lion. G; W. KOMS' attitude towards prohibition and thai of M.r. Cushing' at variance. Mr. Roixrv prom-j ised temperance legislation to thej people and never gave it to thcni. j .Kr, Gushing does not promise, any-j ihinr, but is manly and honest cn- owgh to te-H, the public what believes is in the best intemtai of people.
