They should at least have a clear conception ou what they will have to vote. Tho object of the referendum has already been defined In these columns, but, in view of what it means, II Is well that It should be recapitulated so that the matter he one for current thought, in the bearing it will have in ftiiai TS sought to he accomplished, provided the majority of voters are willing on October 25th. It is well lhat Intending voters should have the Initial understanding that the referendum to bo held Is not a provincial but a'federal matter. It is handled by the Dominion electoral officers. It Is the Federal Govern- ment placing in the hands of the Pro ._ .Tincial Government the pnwpr to de- cide, according as the people of the Province choose, whether what is a federal matter, namely rcter-provin- cial trade, over which the Provincial Government has no say, should be stopped. Practically it gives the Pro- vincial Government the power of velo in the matter of liquor coming into the Province, should the electorate so desire, a veto which at the present "time the Government has not the au- thority lo enforce. It Is legislation when put Into effect which will, It Is considered, minimize to a large ex- tent the supply of liquor in the Prov- ,moe, and so be contributory to the Maintenance of the principle of pro- hibition now In force at the desire of ihe people of the Province. In other words, It alms at strengthening the hands of Ihe Government, In suppres- sing the unlawful sale of liquor, by living it a power, should the referen- dura carry, which it was not endowed With before, to stop liquor, other than that which has a legalized sale, com- ing into Ihe Province. The question which will come up for election on October 25th is wheth- er or not the imporlation. of liquor in- to Alberta shall be prohibited. It has no effect on and no bearing on the present liquor legislation in Ihe Prov- ince. This is Provincial legislation to which, if the electors so decide, will tie added the prerogative of Ihe Province to prevent the bringing In of liquor. If the referendum-decides in the affirmative, then ipso facto the Federal Government declares that It is Illegal to Import liquor inlo Ihe Province of Alberta, other than what by Provincial enactment can now be sold therein. It prevents by these means the importation of liquor for purposes. t As to what liquor shall be sold In ,lhe Province is a matter in which Ihe Provincial Government has the sole .determination and the cole discretion, according lo Ihe provisions of Ihe Liquor Act now In. operalion. Noth- ing is sought to be added to it or lo te taken away from it In Ihe coming referendum. In plains words it is whether or not the people of Alberta thall allow the Government of Alberta lo be possessed of extended powers for carrying out the prohibition law in the restricting of liquor coming into the Province, which privilege tho Fed- eral Government is rearly lo concede. For the benefit of our readers wo append, the following which clearly forlh whal will be obtained the referendum carry. !r. that event a Dominion law cornea into force by declared, as we have pointed out, that: person shall Import, send, take or transport into such province any Intoxicating liquor; person shall, either illrect- ly or Indlreclly, rnanutaclure or sell, or contract or agreo lo manufacture or sell, any intoxicating liquor to be un- lawfully Imporled, sent, taken or transported into such province; carriage or transports- tion of intoxicating liquor through such province shall only be by means cf Q common carrier by water or by railway and uot otherwise, and during the time any intoxicaliug liquor is be iug so transported or carried no per- son shall opeu or breaker allow to Ve opened or broken any package or ves- sel containing such intoxicating liquor, or dri'jk or use or allow lo be drunk or used auy intoxicating liquor there- from. U is provided, however, that; "The provisions, of this section shall cot apply or eitend to tlie importation, manufacture, sending, taking, carriage or transportation into or within, or the sale or agreeing to sell for delivery iti. any province in vvhicli Ibe prohibition is in force, of any in toxicating liquor tor sacramental a medicinal purposes or for manufactur- ing or commercial purposes, other the manufacture or usss thereof as a beverage, or to any in- toiicatiog liquor which under the lav.-s of the province or territory in which the prohibition Is in torco may be law- fully sold therein."

AS MAINE GOES SO GOES THE NATION" "As Maine goes, so goes the is a common expression in '.he States In presidential 'years. Maine happens to be the only Slate holding Slate elections In the early fall, and as they result there are those who say the nation will go likewise In November. Maine is almost consist- ently Republican. This year it ia pronouncedly so. as the election last week indicated. Tho Republics boast that the sweep In Maine means a complete victors' for Harding in November. II is not always the case thai "as Maine goes, so goes the nation." fn Grover Cleveland's second victorious campaign, Maine went He-publican, but tho nation was Democratic. So It was in 3916 when Wilson was given a second term. One notable feature of the Maine election this year was that the Irish vole, usually Democratic, went largely to the Jlepubllcans, on the Instruc- tions of tha Irish' Freedom Leigao. This was not, we are told, because the Irish have come io love the lie- publicans, but In order to punish the Democrats for advocating the League of Nations. The vote of the women in Maine was also of interest. Newspaper rep- resentatives who visited the State dur- ing the election declare that they found the women taking sides accord- Ing to family allegiance. If Ihey were brought up Democrat they voted Democrat; it the husband was a Ite- publican, then the wife voted Repub- lican. That Is what the reporters say, but then the women marked their bal- lots in secret, and'they might have changed their minds at the last mo- ment. ANSWERS 1. Dr. Quiei, Diet, and Dr. Mer- rynian. 2.

Government .very rarely have a long lease of life there. Scan- dals usually are unearthed, and the people rout those responsible from power. Thai was the case, at any rate, in several instances prior to the advent to power of'the Liberal gov- ernment, now about to seek endorse- ment. In as many years, the Conser- vative party had three leaders, and one of them had to quit because of the exposure of a corrupt transaction In which he was a participant. De- spite this exposure and the damage it did to the Conservative party, the gen- eral election following was very close- ly conlested and the Liberals were only returned by a very small major- ity. The Liberal Premier, Hon. TV. E. Fosler, was an untried man In politics. He had never sat in a legislative body prior to his choice as Liberal leader. Ho was a successful business man, and he gave to the proviuco business- like government, free from the cor- ruption which ,has been more or less "common in that province.' There have been differences In the Govern- ment, one Minister having resigned Just before the announcement of a general election. This incident did not cast any reflecllon on the general record of the Government. It Is, however, likely the Govern- ment will havo a desperate fight upon its hands to retain power. The farm- ers threaten lo be a factor In (he con- test, and it would not be surprising if none of the parties had a clear major- ity, with a coalition becoming neces- sary, the election takes place on the nineteenth of next month.
