BEER BY THE GLASS
WE ARE to have beer by the glass,
in those polling divisions of British Col-
bia which voted for beer by the glass.
And so far as we can discover, thru'
reading organs of public opinion since the
mandate was issued, nobody wants it ex*
cept the brewers who make it and those
who expect to get licences to sell it.
Nobody wants it���what? After voting for it?
Sure not; but why?
'     We'll tell you why.
Public opinion became so strong
against the Liquor Control Act and the
manner of its enforcement, that the Pow-
ers-That-Be, our servants down in Victoria, elected by us and paid by us to do
our will, had to hold out some sort of a
top.
So they held out beer by the glass.
They did not give us a chance to vote
en any other solution.
That's why we voted for beer by the
glass, although we didn't want it.
Had they given us a chance to vote
for the licenced bar we would have voted
for that. We would vote for it now if we
had the chance.   In making this state
ment, this paper believes it is speaking
for a majority of the voters of B. C.
Prohibition might be alright if it
would work, but it will not work. For
proof of this, look at what prohibition has
not accomplished in the United States.
Kansas has had prohibition for fifty
(years. The other day we picked up a
Kansas paper, and out of curiosity glanced through the court docket. More than
half of the cases were charges brought
against men and women for bootlegging
and moonshining.
Government Control, even as it is operated in British Columbia, is far preferable to prohibition as it is operated in the
United States; but Government Control is
a farce.
To make money out of the booze business, the Government charges $4 for a
bottle of draft whiskey that used to cost
$1 at the frontier bars. They divide the
profits with the municipalities and then
pull part of the profits back for "law enforcement," even places where there have
been no convictions being mulcted in this
manner.
Space forbids going into details regarding this rotten game.
There is only one solution to the
liquor question.
That is the licenced bar.
The country papers can force this if
they are not afraid to come out in the open
and the sooner they declare themselves,
the sooner will common sense rule in
British Columbia.

WHY?
If You Do Not Already Know,
COME  AND TRY OUR 8EKVICE.
James Batterfield, special writer for the Vancouver Province, takes a fling at that social
pariah and moral wreck, the stool pigeon, as follows: "Liquor legislation is merely a brave social
experiment but the mutnal confidence between
man and man is the foundation and basis of all
human intercourse. Therefore the stool pigeon
commits an actual and irretrievable crime against
the soul of all humanity when he violates that confidence in order to obtain evidence of a technical
crime against a code that may be altered at the
will of a very small portion of humanity."
J. P. Hawkinson. Prop.
Not all the illusions are optical. For instance,
we ran into a fellow last week who, after drinking a quart, imagined he was a whole quartet in
a minstrel show.

syndicate who developed the
Premier mine, and who is heavily interested in a number of
15. C. properties including the
United Empire at Stewart, has
bonded the Emerald and Glacier
date j groups on Sweeney menutain in j
the Tahtsa Lake district on Si-
bola creek. The nearest railway
point is Houston, on the G. T. P.
90 miles distant from the claims.
Should a mine be developed the
probable route of transportation
will be by a 60-mile road to salt
water at the head of Gardner
Canal,
The claims are bonded for five
years, with a provision that work
is to commence as soon as climatic conditions will permit.
The owners, Wm. Sweeney,
Frank Madigan and Dune Mc-

considerable work on the claims, i

During Cite past week Dunwell
dropped considerably with very
little demand,; - Glacier Creek,
after the Spt&t ^caused by the
Dunwell meeting dropped back,
with no \oi��\ demand. This
stock is looked upon as a good
buy at present prices. B. C.
Silver is causing some excitement; heavy demand for this
stock Is continually coming in
from the south; various rumors
are in circulation which, when
boiled down, indicate that good
ore has been encountered in the
mine. News from the Victoria
Mines, that a dyke similar to the
Dunwell dyke had been encountered, caused a heavy demand
for the tail end of the 50 cent
treasury issue, which was quickly cleaned up. The demand for
the treasury issue of Porter Idaho Mining Co. is good, and it is
expected that this issue will soon
be disposed of. N��?ws brought
in hy Manager Heywood ef the
Terminus Mines that they were
in ore, greatly enhanced the
value of the stock. L&L Glacier Creek continues to hold the
floor on active trading.
