Of the Manufacture, Importation and Sale for Beverage Purposes of all Intoxicating Liquors is Canada's ultimate solution of _the Drink Problem. the various Prohibition chief of wiiich are Local Option ar.-a Provincial .Prohibition, have this for their goal. Public sentiment is strongly in favor of the above solution. The ouly Doiumion-YVitle Plebiscite ever taken on this question occurred sixteen years ago. Even then sis out of the then seven Provinces gave in Favor of NationalProhibition a majority of per cent of their total vote cast. Quebec Province alone poi'ied an adverse majority. However, piroiic sentiment a-ainst the liquor trailic since then lias so increased even there ihat to-day 79 per cent of her parishes are Dry. And that too, under Local Option, which at best is but a stepping stone io the ultimate goal. Aftsr the above plebiscite, both political parties in the Federal arena contended, that, considering Quebec's adverse vote, it was nut at thai time wise to enact National Prohibition. And that in spite of the fact that .there still remained, a considerable net ma- jority o' the total vote of the whole Dominicni in favor of national elimination of the liquor traffic: and in spite also' of the fact that political parties have been returned to.ppivor (due to gerry- manderine of constituencies I and have continued in office backed up a smaller majority of the total vote cast than the majority registered for Prohibition at that plebiscite. And Why! Manifestly because the moment any political uarty or any in- dividual political candidate takes a stand in favor of Prohibition the liquor Interests, both individually and as a body, work with ail the resources at their command Io defeat that party or that individual. And no ono can -reasonably blame them for so doing. No'i so tiie advocates of Prohtbitiou! To them' all too often the crack of the party whip sounds louder than any call of con- science or tiie dictates of their judgment- And :sp both political panics have refrained, and for good party reasons, from champion- ing a cause that, is manifestly favored by the majority of their electors. Organized prohibition forces have .thus been compelled tem- porarilv to put in the back ground the Question of National Pro- hibition, and to accept and work with'less.efficient means of sup- pressing the liquor traffic. But from that day to this an increasing tidal wave of LOCAL OP'TIOX anii PROVINCIAL PROHIBITION has been sweeping over Canada from, sea to sea and gathering from day to day such momentum thai in the .very, near future National Prohibition will sweep from-the whole Dominion the last vestige of the Liquor Traffic. The Present Contest ui Alberta is but an incident In thai great movement- And yet" it is some what 'different "from any other contest. A couple of years aso llie present Government of Alberta made a most astute party move. They passed the "Direct Legislation embodying the Initiative and Referendum, and providing that a of electors may under certain conditions present to the Legislative.Assembly and the conditions being' complied with, the Assembly is under., obligation to put upon the books tie legislation thus asked 'for. The 'Prohibition forces of this Province at once proceeded to 'make' use of this Direct Legislation Act, and in harmony with its provisions have drawn uoj a PROPOSED LIQUOR ACT which embodies as "far is considered possible and practicable the principle of Provincial Prohibition; and the Government has in accordance with the provisions of the Direct Legislation Act asked the electors to express their verdict on this proposed Act on the Slst of next July. it is well, then, to remember that this is not a movement on the part of any political party. It it. absolutely and entirely Out of the Realm of Party Politics- Vet there are some members of both political parties of this Province who are personally taluug an active part in this cam- paign in favor of the -proposed Act; and; we have :been assured' that a majority of the members of the present Assembly are in favor ot the Act and will personally vote for its adoption on the 21st of ,luly. But that does not make it a party measure or issue. And it is Not a Church "'Movement Either. Great credit is due the various organized religious ibodies and to many ot the religious leaden ami teachers .of. all religious bodies operating in tins Province for the present overwhelming conviction on the part, of the general public that tli- Liquor Trattic Must AT Bur this moiement being conducted the Teui perance and Moral Reform League .which in'its member- ship and supporters CITIZENS of all po'ilical parties of all religious and indeed, also 'en man of no uiurch not party affiliation.
