Man., .March 13.-A heavy snowstorm, accompanied in some districts by a gale, is in progress all over -Manitoba, and will no doubt seriously affect the vote being cast today in the rural sections on referendum for prohibition within the province. Double the normal amouift of snow has fallen this winter and in country districts I'ouces anil oilier familiar marks have disappeared. Though the season is well advanced, there lias been no tiiaw, and with the roads blocked by heavy drifts Ihe "drys" fear a light country vote, which they regard as their chief source of strenglh. In the districts.around Hrau-don City conditions are so bad that an early morning report said that it would be next to impossible for farmers to get to the i)Olls. Polls are open from nine in the morning to five in the evening, and the result should be fairly generally known by seven o'clock, Klectors are asked to vote "Yes," or "N'Oi" whether the .Manitoba Temperance Act shall be put in force. This act WHS passed at the recent session of Ihe Legislature, subject to the pres-(mt referendum, and closes bars numbering 107, as well as 10 wholesale liquor licenses and seven licensed clubs, it will go Into force ,lune 1st, provided it carries. The act does not interfere with the manuCucture of alcoholic liqiiors lor export from this province, nor with importation from outside the province by pvlvuto persons. Both sides have put up a keen tight spending money lavishly in advertising, and each claims victory. Public oiilnlon generally looks tor the ondor-satton of the act by a vote anywhere from three to two to two to one..
