Tho Legislature will have the power to pass a compensation bill cf- terwards, if they see fit. In refutation to the argument that the Liquor Act is unfair to the liquor men in that it despoils them of their profits. -Mr. Speuce said: "The state has ths ial-.sreiit power, to control the traffic, and also the right to lease the franchise, subject to its own regulations. Tlje state lenses the franchise at a nominal fee to the 'iiituor limn, who makes his profit out of it. The state has the perfect right at any time to withhold this'llcense, and no hardship is worked upon tho leasee. who has got what he paid and in most cases a little more.

The Indus- tries used more men, paid more wag- es, used ten times more raw material than the breweries, and it was time the breweries were turned into some- thing useful. Jlr.

Mr. Windle Mr. Windle quoted the statement of the hotel-keeper at Kitscoty, who rail a temperance hotel, and had to add a feott stable and livery barn to make it pay, and who said no hotel would pay without a license. Jlr. Windle went on to argue that the clauses of the act placed the onus of proof on a man who was found to have more liquor than the law allow- ed in his house, to prove that he was innocent of wrong .under the act. Tills was not British justice. A man should be innocent until proved guilty. The Act also discriminated against the man who lived in a cl.ub or boarding house as against the private dweller, who could have what he wanted in his house. This act, said Mr. Windle, destroy- ed the equality of man. and ought to he defeated. Today, he said, tile Bri- tish forces were fighting in the fie'id that justice might be perpetuated. All men that stood under the British flag stand as equals, but they did not under this_new act. The rights of the JMagna Charta wrung by the peo- ple with bloodshed and suffering, had given the right to a man to be heard before being convicted.- This act could not be reconciled with the rights of men or the glorious ideals eminent, which has the constitution al poiver to appoint such officers.

Mr. Spence stated that a Dominion Act controlled such matters, and the province had no jur- isdiction. In reply to Mr. Windle's statement that the liquor traffic did no harm, Mr. Spence said: "To say thai there are no evils resulting from the liquor traffic is an insult to your intelligence. You have only to walk down the street to see them. "It is not the liquor men who are at the bottom of the evil, but the liquor traffic; anil .the traffic is not had because of the men who are in k ior the time eing. e a alone at the time, and when his own eyes when you look into jour _ __ t, ____ flip mnrrplous marvelous passing the 'place last Fri-jmirror and behold mornm" she stopped in to see; transformation! how k" setting The remarkable astringent action opened'the door she tound her broth-1 of the saxolite so tightens _the skin, nedte oor se to cr luii" on the floor dead, with the i .wrinkles are literally pressed top he-id blown off, evidently Best ot all, this result nnr by the 01 a shotgun. n quest was held. .at. which- the out. purely is no worse than the man in th hardware business, except that he is the creature of the traffic.

Mr. Spence produced a map to show the spread of prohibition in On- tario by local option. But there they had difficulty in that towns witii li- censes interfered with the operation of prohibition in neighboring towns. Mr. Windle Mr. Windle said as he understood the direct legislation law. this act could not be amended by the legisla- ture, but must be sent back to the people for amendment. Mr. Windle claimed the act dis- criminated against the poor man who cou'id not afford to !huy the liquor wholesale.

But that is not the- basis on which we determine whether a thing is good. i "Brother Spence said it was the man in front of the bar who should he compensated. Wfoy should he-be compensated. He goes into the bar and lays down his money. What does he get? He gets whav he wants drink. Why should he be entitl- ed to any further compensation? So long as he spends his money and gets what he wants, it is nobody's busi- Mr. Windle said that the matter of compensation should be considered because-the people insisted on- the hotel men building a certain class of hotels, and this involved an obliga- tion on the people -to see that the hotelmen got a chance. Mr. "Windle claimed that the act interfered with, inherent rights of individuals, and that these inherent rights could not be decided hy courts of law. The fact that supreme courts of the United States gave the right to slave owners to chase escaped slaves with bloodhounds and bring them back to the whipping post did not make slavery right. "If this bill would be unconstitu- ional with a compensation clause in t, then it is wrong. If you can't do right without being unconstitutional- then it is your duty to defeat the bill." Mr. Windle went on to argue that the new act .would mean the turning of all the money now s.pent here, out of the province "to outside brewers. He instanced the Calgary Brewing __ which had sold in bonds in the .Old Country, and the banks had told the the iecurity was gilt-edged. Britishers lad bought the bonds. Now this act was striking at the breweries and this would rum this credit in Eng :and Lnder the new act said Mr Windle. "all money spent for liquor will go of the province Tin der present conditions it stays here. It pays rent, wages. Five thousand men are employed in the liquor business in in wagea. Isame chance under the act. poor man must either so without, or patronize bootleggers. "You can take liquor away from a man, but you can't take a real man away from said Mr. Windle. He de- nounced the bill as a fraud. He claim- ed the act put politicians into the liquor business, instead of taking liquor men out of politics. Mr. Spence Mr. Soence said the new act was not putting a single politician -into he -liquor business. The vendors vere appointed by the government on salary- but so were postmasters and other officials. Was that any rea- IOE why post offices should be abo'i- Spence replied to -Mr. Windle's argument about the private houses being able to have liquor and hoard- ng-houses being deprived ofHhe priv- lege. Mr. Spence said that the law nterpreted a man who kept three or more boarders in his house as making t 'a -business proposition, and there might arise a case where he would endanger the public welfare by ai'iow- ng in his house as :a-boarfer some Alberta, getting These employees All this spend this money here money Is going to be lost." "Voting for this bill won't change man's appetite for liquor. He-will have it the day after the bill passes, as he had it the day before. All the bill will do is to change the channel through.which te liquor will flow. It won't advance moral reform." Mr. -Spence Mr. Spence referred to the money invested in the bonds of the brewer- ies. and said the people did not auth- orize the representations made in England. The brewers made the re- presentations. They had no right to deceive the buyers, for they knew this thing "tvas, coming up. Mr. Spence quoted statistics on in- vestments of different industries.

Jlay r Hardie sharply reprimanded them, aying it did their cause no good to eprecate the splendid language and sentiments now being expressed y Mr. Windle as regards British lib- rty. Mr. Windle went on to claim that new act would drive the liquor rade from the bar into the homes. There was no limit to the quantity a lan could have in his house. He said f only a fifth of the homes in this rovlnce carried liquor, there would e homes in-which there would e the kitchen bar, where children erved out the. drinks. There were only two remedies for r.unkenness: moderation and total hstlnence, and these must be self- mposed and self-enforced. "We have charged pposed to- public interest, and we ave shown it to be. We have charg- d that it is an immoral proposition, nrt wo have shown it to be, because t robs a man of his just rights. We ave shown it to be injurious to home ndustry injurious to the credit of he province. It perverts the priuci- les of justice, and .it drives .the quor into the homes, which is a men :e to the public good." Mr. Spence Jlr. Spence emphasized that it was ecessary at all times to subserve rivate liberty in the interest of the ommou good. "Mr. Windle says this act will drive iquor into the home. If this act vouid confine the liquor traffic to what' the father and mother in the anctity of their home would allow, hen thank God for this act. It is he open bar that breeds the evils of ntemperance. The occasion and the pportunity are there." Mr. Spence quoted Ontario stat- sties to show that prohibition lessens rime and drunkenness, and increases justness'. He _said there were five imes more "iff licensed iatricts" than in prohibition areas. Mr. Windle Mr. Windle came back at Mr Spence with quotations from the Do- minion Alliance, of which Mr. SpenCe s secretary, showing the rapid in- crease in convictions Tor drunkenness over all Ontario in the past fifteen years, while licenses have bi_ he decrease, and that the increase in population had been far smaller than .he increase in crime. Mr. Windle said nobody could argue n favor of drunkenness. He upbelt all Jlr. Spence said about that, hu where they parted company was in the attack 'on drinking. If they leg slated against drinking, there .were other things men went to. excess in: men abused money and eating and natural passions. The majority cannot interfere wit] .be rights, of the individual, pointed jut Mr. Windle. There-is no major ity big enough to tell a man what iltar he would worship at; no major ity big enough to tell him what wo man he should choose as his wife Wrong could not be r.iade right by a majority. JLurder was evil in itself Hit the evil in drinking was in the jxcess. This act .struck at the root of mor- ality, said Mr. Windle. The basis of morality was personal liberty and personal responsibility. The cat was un-Christian in character. They say to the murderer and the thief, "Be- lieve in the Lord and the blood of Jesus will wash away your but their message to the drunkard is, 'Call an Jlr. Windle went on to show that great divines and reformers had used wine in years gone by. Mr. Spence Answering Mr. Windle's argument that the act was un-Christian in char- acter, .Mr. Spence said: "I "believe in the inspiration ot the Church. AH churches are united on this question, and I believe that they Interpret the the -Master as applied to modern conditions; and I care not what divines or reformers did" two thousand years ago." Mr. Spence re-quoted the figures used by Mr. Windle on the increase of crime in Canada, and showed that the big increases were in districts and provinces where licenses' exist- ed. He also quoted figures to show that local option had been a suuess Blue Ribbon Coffee anc Baking Powder Has your morning cup of cof- fee a full rich flavor and deli- cate If not ask for Blue Ribbon giving your next order and notice the difference.

Mr. Windle Concludes Mr. Windle concluded witii quoting passages from Scripture, which, he claimed, upheld his argument that drinking was -sanctioned in the Bible. Christ had said: "John the Baptist canie neither eating bread nor drink- ing wine, and 1- come- both- eating and drinking, and behold they call me a gluttonous man." II r.

None Too Proud During their tour of England an American and his wife were advised to visit a ruined castle In Cornwall, the custodian of which was a rela- tive of the noble owner. Having viewed the glorious old pile, they were at a loss how and in what way to offer a gratuity, hearing in mind the "bine blood" ot" their guide. The following conversation took place: "We thank you for yur courtesy and would be glad to give a small sum to any-cause-If-you-have a box for that purpose." was the replyf "we hava such a box."

It is their food that is responsible for most summer troubles. Milk is difficult to modify at home and, in the summer particularly, it is liable to contamin- ation, infection and becoming sour.
