This has been a season of progress in every section and the

A great deal of development
has taken place and in the face
of unexpected drawbacks. As
well as operation of several of
the older properties, considerable
work has been done on new discoveries. It has been a year of
progress in every direction and
results justify further work

There is not the slightest
doubt that in the liquor plebiscite on Oct. 20 Government-control will carry easily all over
the north. Any honest man
must admit that the present so-
called prohibition does not and
cannot prohibit either intoxication or trafficking in booze. The
present Act has lowered public
morals, regard for law and quality of the stuff.
Supporters of the present system either do not know the results or they are not honest
about it. Prohibition of th#
real sort would have greater support were manufacture prohibited and the law applied to the
whole country. Murder and
robbery are crimes all over the
country. Drinking and dealing
in booze are limited crimes in
this province but all right in
most of the others. The law
cannot prohibit anything. It
can enforce punishment. But
not unless public sentiment is
behind it.
We do not say that liquor is
good for humanity as a steady
diet. But men will drink with a
good conscience so long as liquor is a legitimate article of
manufacture. And so long as it
is it can be controlled in a broad
way but drinking cannot be prevented.
