J.SO THE REAL MEANING OF THE REFERENDUM On October 25th the" public of Al i who arS so' entitled, will be called on to record their voles on E single question..as to whether or hoi tie existing privilege, made possible by Iho Federal law, of Importing 'llQior intb the Province shall continni jpr not, It is well to keep the sins! Issue in mind without allowing othe Issues to be intermixed with it. -Ti pat Use question in another wfiy, i simply1 amounts to this: Shall th Prorlnco be placed in a position to i have complete jurisdiction over the liquor traffic without. In any shape' or j form, being hampered'by. Dominion That to say. Is the i JToviacs tooe given or not given the power to say :what liquor shall be I fropdrtefl and what shall nol'be' import- ed. Tho interprovlnclal trade. In Other words, is sought to be taken away from the authority and ihe juris- j diction of the Federal Government It the people so will.it.. tier regulations may be made by the Government will, rest.on tM outcome of tht sentiment express in the voting In the majority rolled op Should this majority, in the tol- time ot opinion that is expressed, testi- fy that it is the sentiment of the people that the Province be then it will remain for the Gov- ernment to make it so. Tho fact that la-thU legislation the hands ot Ihe Ooternttent will not be tied by Us having lo submit to liquor being im ported whether itVills or not, as nt present under tbe Dominion law, is something to be kept clear in mind. There IS ho iiecessity for contdsini the Issue It is plain. .The Dominion Government is only too willing t 'abrogate the power it possesses undo present legislation to the Provincla authorities. IE the people of th Province so decide. This thi alone is the Issne. rWlth the new power which will h placed in Its hands in giving it th aole Bay as to whether liquor shall b Imported Into tho Province, It at all.'o limited to certain beverages, such a beer for Instance, should the elector declare that the power which the DC minion Government now possesses no longer possess, the Cover i nent of Alberta will be given a fre f hand "In making liquor regulation which shall conform to the wishes j the majority of- the people ot tl Province, it will not be In the pos 1 In which it Is now, ot bavin what it aims at counteracted by th V Sower the Dominion Oovernment h I' to allow of the Importation of liquoi The Dominion Government is wi I Ing to forego the authority U now pi to allow liquor Into I Province la conformity with Inle to whom. Premier Melshen Is a per- grata, the Montreal Gazette. This is tae Terhatim report, sent from Grautjy, where the Premier nssde his speech, in the form of a "special despatch" to the Montreal Gazette: "1 do not say that the leaders ot Iho party, much less their follow- ers, want to orerturn responsible gov- ernment, but 1 do say that those with whom they have aligned themselves, as, for instance, the Winnipeg and Vancouver sadltlonlsts, had as their goal 'the upsetting ot the system of :o'vernment In Canada." bnt a qulbbier in words can misconstrue the Premier's-raeanlng in the word "aligned" he used. To be aligned with Eedltloulsts shows a nat- ural inclination lo consort with them it sympathy with tho held hy them. No stretch ot Imagination can construe the application otherwise. If there is any. doubt as to tbe applica- tion intended that is set aside by the passage immediately preceding the one has arisen in Canada si described-as a Tanners' Fre rade.party. -It bad its birth in tb estern'.
