Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 5, 1915, Lethbridge, Alberta MGC root THR LBTHBRIDGK DAILY HERALD MONDAY, JULY f. Deralfc e, Siberia DAILY AND WS8KW. ljr, delivered, per Dtllj, bjr per r, br mall. f -M-JJ ButlneM Editorial Offlco W. A. Buchanan John lUnallnf Director Buslnw ROUND THE CIRCLE 'OF THE WAR The .Russians have retaliated In l rather spectacular and unexpected for their defeat! on by tn- flictlng a crushing defeat on of the Kaisers much nafal 'snuadrons in the Baltic sea.. This seems to be about the only zone in which the German warships are Trent to parade and the Russians are mak- ing'the most of tneir advantages in this direction. According to despatch- es, they Quite easily drove to flight tie several cruisers and other vessels that gave battle to them. In Galicia, though the Russians have retreated a considerable dis- tance before the drive of the Teutons, they are in a better position non- to give battle, being closer to their base of supplies. A turn of the tide is looked for at any time. The sinking of tie liner Armenian, as a cattle boat, is not so serious an incident as it at first appeared. The liner was making at- tempts to escape a submarine it had been warned, and the siniini of the vessel in view of this is justi- fied by international law. "SAW OFF" PRACTICE BE ABANDONED Election protest "SIT oft's" have Ven commbn-'to Canadian politics, provincial and federal, for years. The happenings in Manitoba along tills line are not new. They were merely following a common practice.- That the practice is wrong, is our opinion. If an election nas been corruptly won the party ieneStting should suffer, no "saw; off" ought-to be. allowed to stand Jn the Corruption in elections will only cease when the public is awakened to the actual con- ditions and the conditions cannot revealed when politicaKparties resort to saw offjL arrangement of. kind madiTin made in Alberta after the last provincial elec- tions, and in tie "whole .of Canada after the Dominion elections of 1911. The practice is common to hoth par- ties and'It will only be through the co-operation of both parties that one practice will be abandoned. The peo- ple generally don't want corrupt prac- tices at elections, but so long offs" are recognized, corruption Is more likely to nourish. tian where every election protest means an elec- tion trial and tie punishment of the corrupters. OUR POINT OF VIEW Your King and Country yon litht now. The Manitoba 'mess is getting un- comfortably close to Hon. Robert Eegers. Foremost may get two new elevat- ors, making four in all. The crop in thai district promises to ibe very heavy and will nil fonr elevators times.' Crop prospects were never BO good in the "homestead country" since it me settled as this year. The crops part of the south. (here promise to yield as well as_ any At present there are not nearly en ouch threshing outfits to handle the crop south and east of Foremost That country never had the acreage that is in crop this year, befam, and consequently it.does not possess ma- chines enough to do the threshing. Local parties realize need and would venture into the threshing iraslneM 1C they bad the money. It is a situation that mult be dealt with quickly as it is really seriotu.

People's Forum OPPOSES ACT To'the Editor of The Herald: Sir.-'-ln order to dispel some ot the false allusions pervading the' minds of some of the people who think they arc taking the- side of temperance by advocating the' proposed 'Liquor Act, pressed in a letter published in your valuable paper a short time ago, i seemed to havo caused, 1 shall ask I for space in which to make myself i clear on this subject. I am positively in favor of temper- ance reform In Alberta, but. I believe It can be better attained by en- forcement of our present Liquor Act, than by the enactment of propos- ed Liquor Act. .Our preieat pro- vides restrictions on the salt of liquor, and. if enforced, !s stringent and ade- quate to meet the requirements of reasonable people. The law prohib- its the sale of liquor to an Intoxicated 'person: it provides for the interdic- tion of a person who uses liquor to excess, and forbids supplying that person, under a heavy penalty, to consume liquor in Alberta; it prohib- its the sale of liquor to.a boy under twenty-one years. These restrictions can, and should be, enforced; and if enforced, will -hring about the tem- perance reform needed in Alberta. It is a historical fact that Alberta has the best temperance laws (if enforc- ed) of any province in Canada, or of any State in the United States, Kan- sas not excepted. Why enact a law which its advo- cates do not claim win bring about the required temperance reform in Alberta (the most that is claimed for it is that it is a step in the right di- when the enforcement of our present laws will bring about temperance reform which wiH meet with the approval of reasonable peo- plet Of all the people living in Alberta, do not believe there is more than one per cent in need of laws restrict- ing their liberty in the of liquor; therefore, is it necessary, or good government to enact is U law which places restrictions on every- one, when our present law provides for the one per cent. who. need these restrictions? There are many good people living in Alberta, and a great many good people living outside of Alberta, who do not think it. harmful to indulge in a glass of fceer or liquor. The en- actment of the proposed law will be the cause of some of these good peo- ple leaving Alberta, and keep many- good, people, living outside of similar tastes and habits, from coming to Al- berta. Prohibition Kansas! Advocates of the proposed Liquor Act eulogize "Prohibition which, has had laws somewhat similar to the propos- ed law for more than thirty years, as a prohibition You'will notice that none of these advocates are from Kansas. You will also notice that there has beea no great stampede of people to Kan- sas during the past twenty-years to participate in the great prosperity alleged prohibition has brought to it. Being raised in Kansas, I am glad to know that it Is .now a' model and prosperous state: all-this must have occurred since I left. The area and census of Kansas would indicate that" its prosperity brought about by pro- hibition is not very generally known as it is not as densely populated as its sister" state, Missouri, which hKS never had the 'building the benefit-of prohibition laws. Kan- sas has an area of square miles, or acres of land, and has a population of while Mis- souri has only air area of square miles, or acres, and has a population of more than 000. Kansas City, In the state of Kan- sas, has a population of about wWIe Kansas" in the" state of Missouri, with only tne-state line di- viding the two cities, aa'd.ln about the same length of time has built up a city ftith a population of more than 325.000 Property in the city on the to which prohibition IfM built up Kmf saa and her eltloi. Why emulate the example of Kansas tu Alberta by en- acting lawn which will stop tht build- ing up of her oitlei, andintpp the de- velopment and settlings.up of her {and, and leiien the de- mand for her property at any price, and In one swwp'wlll wipe c-ut values to the amount of hundreds Ot thous- ands of dollars ot taxable property. Is (hero anyona contending that a law which will do this' will make Al- berta a better place in which to live? Many of the people In Alberta are not familiar with the restrictions em- bodied In our present 'liquor laws, against the use of liouqr "which would, If enforced, do with the condi- tions brought about by the nbusn of liquor which people complain of. and object to. Advocates of the proposed Liquor Act will cite cases and paint pictures of distress and misery caus- ed by the abuse of liquor, but they do not you that if our present law enforced the distress and misery which they picture, could not occur from the abuse of liquor. In Alberta lead you to believe that all that is necMsary in order to eliminate these conditions is to vote for the proposed Liquor Act, I am hot in any way allied with the hotel keep- ers or the liquor interests in Alberta, b.ut I am going to tell you that I have seen worse conditions brought about by the abuse of liquor in "prohibition Kansas" tban I have ever seen in Alberta, and if you are calculating that the enactment the proposed liquor law will eliminate conditions brought on by the abuse of liquor in Alberta, yo.u are going to he badly disappointed, but "the enforcement ot our present law will do so to a great extent, and it is not necessary to postpone it until a year trpm the 21st of July. The temperance reform can be started right now. If you- see an in- toxicated person, inform the License Inspector, whose duty' it is to find out who supplied liquor, to that per- son and prosecute him for doing so. If you know of a habitual drunkard, inform the License Inspector, who can with a very little formality, inter- dict that person. It is then unlawful for anyone to supply him with liquor, and it also unlawful for that per- son to consume liquor in Alberta. These are not difficult duties for any person who is in favor of temperance reform, and It will bring abo.ut the desired results. Mr. Editor, I have taken too much of your valuable space, but I think 1 have made my position in this matter clear and have given good and suf- ficient reasons for opposing the pro- posed liQuar act. Yours truly, HENBY GALVIN. MORE CROCODILE TEARS Editor of the flerald Dear would seem at pres- ent that the daily prayer of the members oi the Licensed Victuallers association is, "Oh, that my heard were waters, and mine eyes a foun- tain of tears that I; might-weep day and night for the sorrows about to come on Alberta" through tbs-nsfsri- bus Liquor Act.'1 First we had torrential showers for their pet and their father's iov the interdict; They wept for tear the fence built by the temper- ance people around Jthe interdict to protect Kim from his loving parent would be destroyed'; by this toma- hawk of the mad prohibitionists; Now we deluged with ir saltz rheum ..for the poor, di ipie ot Alberta 'en masse.

You invaue aud desolate our homes, caring naught 'or the scalding tears of our wives or the needs of our help- less children. You strap a crievous load upon the workingman's hack. You counteract the moral Instruc- tion of our schools and churches.. You mar our social life-and create und perpetuate our slums. You miseducate the foreigner com- ing to our shores, and keep alive race prejudices and hatreds. Ycu arc the ally ot such law-break- ing Interests as gambling and social vico. They need your assistance in order to 'live. But your long suit is in politics. Government exploits you for revenue and campaign funds, and you ill turn secure a dominating influence in the councils oi the state. You have no party affiliations. You arc not in politics for the public weal. You arc out for number one. So long as the government stands pat you back it with your purse and with the purchasable vote. Ypu arc often linked up with such predatory interests as the trusts, the franchise-grabbing corporations, the political grafters', etc. Your civic and national affairs is altogether corrupting and debasing. You are besides an intimidator, a. bully and a as this cam- paign abundantly shows. You hold the 'big stick- over the head of those who are inclined to dif- fer from you. And you do ndt hesi- tate to assail in every dirty way the reputations of those who are opposed to you. Y'bu have never fought a clean or honorable campaign yet. But lan- guage fails You are the limit. The vendor at his wickedest could not possibly be a circumstance to you. The handful of vendors and clerks, possibly 50 in all, could not, if so begin to equal your 5000 as a source of political corruption. The vendors will be picked men, re- commended, perhaps, by the prohi- bition party. They will he salaried men, and therefore without the incentive to speed up the sale of strong drink. They will be restricted to the sale of liquors for medicinal, sacramental and business purposes. Having modest salaries they will -be unable to contribute princely sums to corrupt purposes. Being government officials, on" a par with all other civil servants, they will be unable-to take an active part any political campaign. In addition to all these limitations that make the vendor a very harm- less little fellow there will be heavy penalDties hanging over him. For the first offence there .will be a fine ot not less than and disqualifica- tion from office for at least three years. No, gentlemen of the Licensed' Vic- tuallers1 don't waste further people of Al- berta are not going to be stampeded by your bugaboo. The one thing that might shake them with respect to the vendors would be the knowledge that some of you gentlemen might be ap- pointed to these offices, Thon they might .lie awake at night, guessing some.

You can re- place property but you can't replace human life." The Labor Department The labor-department had been or- ganized ailer repeated petitions from the labor men. One would naturally infer that the duty oi the minister ol labor was to conserve the interests of labor. The department of trade and commerce conserved the interest of the business man. McKenzie King was the third minister of labor: What did he do to help the laboring man. He framed the combines inves- tigation act, which was widely prais- ed. The secretary of the labor ..-con- gress drew an amendment which pro- vided that the act would not apply to trades unions. The minister assur- ed the labor men that the act would not apply to the trades unions, but the congress insisted upon the amend- ment anil finally had to threaten the minister to "get it included. Had not amendment been included, said Mr, Waters, every. labor organization in the country could have been killed as a combine in restraint of trade, should they happen to go on strike: Prominent lawyers had assured him that this was the "only way a court could have construed the act without this amendment 'Mr. "Waters referred to the protest to the grouped insurance clause ot the new" insurance hill, which if included, wouiu iiavo meant that workingmen would have forfeited their right to their insurance as soon as they left ifche employ of the man- with whom they had been working Mir. Waters referred to the appeal of the .manufacturers' association to "the workingmen to keep their dollars at home. He showed that for every dollar sent to the' States organization by Canadian workmen, three came back The capitalists talked ol patriot- ism.. They defined the nation as big tamil} and he liked that deiinl- tion. The duty of one member of toe family was to sacrifice himself to promote tire interests ot the whole family! It was unthinkable that one .member of the family should have to organize to protect himself against, the said Mr. Waters.
