SUGGESTED UKELIHOOD OF ANOTHER PLEBISCITE ON THE LIQUOR QUESTION {Edmonton Bulletin) second vote on Alberta's liquor Jirobiem Is altogether likely within the fieit twelve months. With the Issue ot governmental Jurisdiction settled by tha decisive verdict on the Impor- tation referendum ,ot; October 35th, the province now holds the sole auth- ority for legislating and enforcing liq- uor law within-its borders. What policy Is to be followed in dealing with tie problem In the future will be set- the legislative assembly in the session .which-is likely to be call- ed during the'coming January. Premier Stewart and other mem- bers of tha cabinet refuse absolutely to divulge any information as to what their proposals to the'legislature are likely to It Is officially slated that so. announcement on the liquor ques- tion will be made Is made to the legislature.. However members of tie have been fully apprised last few days of strong movement- In the. province for tho of i plebiscite In Alberta simi- lar, to that recently la Brit- ish. and It has been es tab- lished almost beyond 'a doubt that stronger; pressure will be brought to bear from within the legislature it- self .when tlat'body, meets early nett year.

In view of the situation In legls la live circles then, It seems safe to say that a plebiscite on the liquor question will be placed before the electors: of "the province within a reasonable time after' the legislature prorogues neit spring. In all likeli- hood the vole will be submitted In June or July at tho latest.
