Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 30, 1920, Lethbridge, Alberta TEN x THE LETHBRIDGE DAILY HERALD SATURDAY, OCTOBER 30, Attorney-General Analyzes Vote On Referendum And Sees Need Of Strong Support To Enforce Law Hopes for Co-operation, Including Those Who Voted Against Importation, "hi Order io Coerce the-' Balance of Population Into Submission." (Edmonton Journal.) Both the light Tote cast and tie email size of the majority given In favor ot prohibiting the Importation of liquor Into Alberts ire sources of disappointment to the lew enforce- ment dlvlslo'ri. of the government, ac- cerdlns to a; statement made to-day by Attorney General J.R. Boyle. Aa Mr. Boyle Is the crlef Saw enforce- ment officer of the, province, charged with the duly of carrying cut ihe picvlslons of the- liquor act, bis opinion on the subjct of the results o( the recent plebiscite Is especially interesting. Discussing the vote, Mr. Boyle raid: ''I do not wish to" malce such com- ment on the result until have ac- curate on the vote-, but It would appear from tha returns at hand that less ihau half the people entitled to vote assumed their duty iu deciding the question. The decision, there- lore, having been mads by a minority ot the electorate, and the people who voted, apparently fairly evenly di- vided In' 'heir opinions, every person is t liberty to draw, what conclualon ha wishes an to the feelings ot the people, ifl to lectotallsm or otherwise. "I -have: no deuin" that ihe teeto- tallers wll .Iclalm (hit most of the people who declined to assume their rcsponsliiyiy'ln.connection .with the queslloif by "riot Tolln'g'afo in favor of teetbtallsm, and Ihose opposed to leetolallBm will cLiim that people who, declined to role ore on their side." Enforcement of the Law "FrbnT the' point 'of view "of enforce- ment of the present law. however, ihe small vote and Email majority is very disappointing. The effective enforce- ment of a'coarclvo law s'jch as the liquor act, which undertakes lo regu- late th3 dally habits and lives o{ the people, aud which forbids people from following their usual customs and hab- its, requires a vary strong and en- thusiastic public sentiment tn its favor. I have found, (or example, that In localities Id psrts ot the province where there Is an enthusiastic; leelo- laHsra sentiment, It Is not very diffi- cult to make effective, hut In portions where the opposite sentiment prevails and the police have to force hosltte community enforcement be- comes oiceedlojly difficult. For example, la the Cardston dis- trict, where tswtoUllim Is cue of the tenets of the religion of the majority of the people, they mastly belonging to the Mormon church, we hare very little difficulty In enforcing the lair, and on the other band. In the Crov's Nest Pisa, where Beallinent appears (Irons agalnat teetolalism. we have foujQd enforcement ey.coedingly dim- cult. "it would appear, therefore, that the government cannot rely on much na- tive asststanco from the people who declined to eipress an opinion by vot- ing at the polls.' Neither can we ex- pect any asaltance from those who voted In favor of Importation. I think we must expect resistance from that group. 1 hope we can rely upon ac- tive support from those who voted against Importation but that group would appei- to represent probably not more than'25 per cent, of the people of the provlnco. "We require the moral, active and energetic assistance of a larger pro- portion lhab 25 per cent, of the people mission, of tha country In order to coerce the balance of the population Into sub "Te result .-leaves the government In the position of having to decide as to what IE the most practical.dud ef- fective nay of dealing with this ques- tion Eb as to bring about Che greatest amount of sobriety possible in the pro- vince. 1 have no announcement to make as lo the future policy of the government. Such announcements, if any, Wil Ibc made by the prime min- ister."
