Beer Bribery is a violation of tho Corrupt Practice Act, yet this is being brazen- ly resorted to by the Whiskey Ring in order to buy up the election on July 21st. At the olltstart of the Prohibition Campaign a 'bold and subtle bid was made by the hotel men of a certain city for the support of the Y.M.C.A. Business men have been promised in- crease of trade if they would, vote "wet." Of late wo learn of Prohibition. Scrutineers being approached for their: autos and livery rigs being hired for election day at extra- vagant rates. 'But the chief reliance of the Whls-' key'Ring has been in "Beer." First it 'Was dropped to 5 cents a' now it flows free in many quarters. Publicly citizens have 'been promised "'free bear" if they would attend the liquor meetings. Will the Citizens'" Committee explain the carnival of drunkenness that has 'been going on of late in the mining centre in' the Lethbridge riding? Are the miners on full time again, or have the C. P."

After hesinirching venerable missioimriea of the church and the. fair name of a sister province, what lies will these desperate scoundrels halt at" WHY I WILL VOTE "YES" ON JULY 21st 1. BECAUSE the present Liquor License Ordinance is not salis- factory, costing Alberta, as it does, 40p lives and per year. 2. BECAUSE tiic time has come to divorce the province 'from its Immoral and debasing partnership with the linuor truffle. 3 BECAUSE Prohibition is the more modern, scientific and effect- ive method of dealing with' the drink problem, and proves a success today wherever given Ji fair trial. 4. BECAUSE the Liquor Act is one or the best iirohtbitory laws ever framed. 5. BECAUSE the Liquor Act will prohfbit absolutely the bar, tho i wholesale liquor store and the licensed club. 6. BECAUSE the Liquor Act will diminish and finally extinguish drinking in the Home. BECAUSE the penalties for violating the Act are admirable and sufficient, and will soon end the dives now so numerous through- out the province. BECAUSE the Liquor Act will increase the prosperity of the country and decrease the taxation. BECAUSE (be Liquor Act will make for nobler manhood and cleaner government. BECAUSE the Liquor Act will f-nable us to catch up with Sas- katchewan and the other progressive provinces of Canada. BECAUSE the Liquor Act will greatly advance the cause of Uoniinion-wide Prohibition. BECAUSE, above all, 1 stand to protect the boy the most I can. and to help the drink-cursed. 4.

Bull-Dozing Intimidation lias been practised by the Whiskey King in tins campaign on a scale isnver beforv witnessed in this province. 1. Business men everywhere have bewi threatened with loss or trade and boycott should they show any bias toward Prohibition or vote that way. Would every banker in Lethbridgo havo lined up with the Whiskey King of his own free will and choice? 1'. By the thousands, employees have been intimidated from working for Prohibition by the threat of dis- missal from their job. Employees of some firms, ii is said, have had to walk the carpet and answer the ques- tion to how they wore to vote. Even our city employees have not been altogether free from bull-dozing of. this kind. 3. Newspapers all over the prov- ince have had the big stick held over them and have felt, its weight at the least sign of independence.
