This younger and advanced section is quite a minority in tlie actual labor move- ment in Greai( but it Is ag- gressive and by majority votes in min- ority polls appearance'ot be- ing an important' body. What is the reference in Tennv- line. "The violet ou the Who is the most able diplomat ANSWEftS entirely in their own hand. This is precisely the issue, In Man- itoba, just as ft Is iu Alberta, the Do- minion Parliament has decided that the control of liquor shipments which constitutionally belongs to the Domin- ion under the British North America Act abrogated wherever provinco so desires, In order to Eecure the complete carrying out of the will of the people regarding liquor control or prohibition. The 'Free Press adds the reminder that -was made by Parliament as an alternative to national prohibition, which has been 'demanded, hut was considered not so feasible as complete provincial au- tonomy in the matter of liquor con- trol. Under the B.N.A. Act the prov- inces have jurisdiction In the matter of licensing and controlling the use of iiquor under the general police power. They can prohibit the sale of liquor within the province, but they, cannot prevent being shipped. as this trespasses on the Dominion prerogative? The liquor question in Altierta-is one which is entirely in the hands of, the people to determine. Should the! ref- erendum prevail in favor "of stooping the importation of liquor as is 'made possible by th? B.N.A, Act, the Legls; lature will be free to Vary tho Pro- hibition-Act as It in accord- ance with the sentiment expressed in the result tlie voting.'.This fact bag been already Intimated by Premier Stewart. Referring to tho situation that would arise in Manitoba, should tho referendum vote declare against the Importation of liquor into Hill province, the Free Press stales that the province can be made "bone dry" if that is the will of the people. This, in Ihe daclaration by Premier Stew- art, applies equally to Alberta. There is, however this to be borne In mind; and it IB pointed out by the Winni- peg paper so far as it concerns Man- itoba, and we may gay also Alberta, that "bone-dry" legislation dees i.ot necessarily follow, if the majority of the people should -be in favor of .1 modification of the present law, that could be done; and whatever is nl- Idwed to be legally sold in th'c prov- ince can also be imported from out- side the province. The concluding view of Ihc Free (Press of the situation as it applies to Manitoba., should the referendum carry, may logically be applied to tho situation in Alborla. In regard lo this it says: "To those who are convinced that the majority of the people of Mani- toba want a "hone-dry" provinco nn affirmative answer In the referendum might have that meaning. But to those who are not so .convinced, there will be every, opportunity of seekins an al teration of the present law and secur Ing It if that Is what the people want. Stopping the Imporlallon of legally saleable In Manitoba now1 will not affect that right in the least. Tho people of this province will be able to amend the law and to have complete or partial prohibition just as Ihey wish. This is a situation that ehouljl be naflsfaclory lo everyone, except those who might object to restrictive measures of any kind, and therefore wish lo import what they cannot buy In Manitoba." 1.
