Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 4, 1915, Lethbridge, Alberta THE .DAILY HERALD FRIDAY, JUNE 4, 1015 Another Banner Bargain Day At Rylands Kriitor oi the Herald My attention lias to -a circular, presumably tin- liquor interests under en drawn issued by "The Liquor License Ordinance End the Liquor Act-Some snns which is possibly iuU'ncioit to; be a criticism of Ihe-su-i-allnt I'rolii-: bition Bill. in view of and like .ntv.tuiib, and the statements oi corner! and other elect ionwriug employes ot; ihe traffic, perhaps- a lirief notice ot ibo peneral criticism of the Art may be warranted. To deal with the cri- ticism in detail in your columns is uncrcessai'v and Mould lit1 The greater part oi the criticism is to the effect, not tluu the proposed, Act goes too far, but that it docs not go far it is not licieiitly sweeping nor drastic. I hf remarkable feature is that this hodv of criticism is not on the pan oi temperance or prohibition people, but on the pan of ihe liquor ami their advocates l This, oi course, i; proves nothing (t-xcrpt the nypocnsy of these but ii may serve us a criterion of the value of all such criticism and place genuine temper-j ame people on their guard. The an-' SWIT to all such critic-ism so tar as our committee is nma1 rued is that the Act was drafted by competent, experienced, and trusted representa- of the temperance people of this province that such representatives niven the assistance oi some of The m-st known counsel of the prov- ince so far as 'its Icttal aspects were concerned that the Act represents sentiment oi the a.reat body oi Jtemperance people of Alberta and liiat it is satisfactory to the leaders temperance thought and to the ordinary respectable citizen. 1 need Just-illy add that if it did meet with tin1 approval of the liquor interests should be greatly disappointed in it. It would appear, therefore, that the more bitter the criticism of the Act, by the liquor interests and their advocates, disguised as people or not, the greater the likelihood that they anti- cipate and dread its effectiveness as against themselves and the greater the assurance of temperanre people Mial it will do just what it ivss in-: tended lo do. Tn pass on to details. They state that t'ne proposed Act docs not make any regulations governing hotels, that is hotels in' the proper sense, noi the liquor vending branch of ahem.-This" is absolutely correct. The Act neither regulates nor attempts i to regulate anything but the liquor traffic. A saloon is no more an in- tcsral part of a hotel than a candy shop would be. Temperance people, therefore, m dealing with the liquor .Traffic: in the "Liquor deai with it- only, and the Legislature of i liiis province still has ample power i deal with slopping places, restaur- j ants, hotels properly speaking, or other matters not properly included in the "Liquor by another j act or will no doubt do so in the period between July 21st, 1915, and July 1st, UUfi, to its sat- j ikfaction and. that of the people, of i ilie province. Any criticism of the proposed "Liquor Act" because it does not deal with these or other matters not properly included in tbe i in intoxicating liquors" is entirely beside the question. Such matters may well he dealt with by j ,fche Legislature without a reference io the people. It may he considered fehat strict laws, governing "hostel- lies" will he unnecessary when the liquor shops commonly connected j with chem (and 'which make such're-: g-uiatioris necessary) are dene away will be entirely a mat-_ iler for the govern in stit of tbe _prov- j Snce may well be dealt with a reference to the people.
