Galbraith said he charged with making an statement In sas-ing that the English language had no words sufficient to, exaggerate the evils of the liquor traf- fic. had no reason to alter that statement. The great aim of the medical pro- fession had a'iways been Ibe uplift the human being physically, and lo lessen' disease. The medical pro- fession were united for the. total pro- hibition of liquor. His the voters to vote dry was his experience. He said even with all the illicit traffic. Curing early prohi- bition days that condition was'better than the condition today, and he said a prohibition measure with public sentiment behind better than the prohibition of earlier days with no public sentiment behind it. .He warned those present that the pass-. ing of the prohibitory law was only the beginning of the cure of the traf- fic and that the public should'do all it could to aid the government in en- forcing the act. C. S. Noble C. S. Noble, one of the biggest and most successful farmers of Alberta was not prevented by the mud from being present to uphold the side of prohibition. He said: "It is. Throng to sell poison of any kind when it-will be used to hurt anybody. It is wrong to license bars when temptation is set :in the way of the yoang by those bars. Any- thmV that w-e can do to remove temptatkju from the path of the voung man we should do." Mr. Noble declared that the maj- ority of the farmers of his district were in favor of the measure. "said Mr. Noble, "you can tell which way a man will vote by the look of his premises.. O.ur district is one of the most prosperous of Al- berta and it is almost unanimous in s sentiments against the liquor traf- fic." B.

If il did not liavc a Lcllibridgc heading and had not been signed, it would have very diiliciilt to con- vince people who read it that its authors were no! detained in Piimiku, and that this open letter was a 'lest by the authorities' givcii1 lo the patients or authoi-s to if their mental condition would warrant their release, but, on glancing at the signatures, we is signed by our two moral reform lenders, so we must take it more seri- ously. It is charged in this leaflet that some of the citizens who signed the letter giving the reasons for some money invested in the industries which the prohibitionists are trying to destroy, and thiil tlicir signinfi the letter opposing pro- hibition was an attempt to protect their investments. This is a very serious charge, but self preservation is the first law of people who disregard this law are en- titled to prolccliou, which is given them in many cases by the Courts appointing guard- ians to protect them, and we are glad'to be able to publicly disclaim any necessity or desire' of being placed under the charge of guardians. The people whose menial con- dition shows that they require guardians, are opposing us, and have quietly submitted themselves to be placed under the guardianship of a few self-appointed moral reformers. The bankers'who signed the. letter in question are charged with signing it, fearing their customers' accounts! 'If prohibition is going lo bring about the prosperity which ils exponents claim thai it will, what would the bankers have to be fearful about? The principle of prohibition is wrong; the principle of the proposed Liquor.Act is worse, and its exponents cannot put'.up argument against argument in its must resort to deception, sentiment, prejudice, and this is what they put up against argument which is backed by logical facts and figures. People who, were fortunate enough to be. able to'get into the Majestic Theatre last Friday evening heard the Cannon's arguments, which were logical, honest and fair, answered by the Fire Crack- er's appeal to sentiment, appeal lo prejudic, appeal to deception. The comparison of the two speakers represents the physical and mental callibres of Hie two men and their -arguments. i To our credit, not that we claim or desire any special commendation for conduct- ing ourselves in a manner which becomes, and is the mark of good citizenship at our opponents' meetings throughout tins campaign, il has never been deemed necessary by Ihe authorities of the law of this citj% or any other city, to call on Hie Northwest Mount- ed Police force for officers to compel us to respect, or at least pretend to respect, the rights of others at the prohibition meetings. Even with this strong arm of the law force at our meeting, it became necessary for the chairman, who stands for the pnn- tions shattered by the cannon balls of argument of truth and logical facts. These are Ihe people; these are the self-appointed moral reformers; these are> the exponents ot the eospel of are the people who tell you that they are real men, that they have all the intelligence, and to follow them will lead you'through the pathway into the wilderness without price and without Compensation. Their motives are samt- Iv they are using their inexhaustible talents, their inexhaustible intelligence, their m- foresight for you and foe me. Such piffle, such self-righteousness, such c-otism such an attempt at deception is more to be pitied than censured. They know the principle of their cause is wrong; they know the people of Alberta will not support a cause which has an unjust principle, and in their last struggle they are making a terrible noise to detract the attention of the people of Alberta from the unjust, deceit- ful and dishonest principles of their cause, which they the liquor men when they said-that they were against drunknness. also, but objected to these restrictions. He said the liquor men had never taken ens to stop drunkenness, and -until ,aey wers wiilir.irto do something to help the drunkard, they had no right to find fault with those that were at- tempting to do. something.
