A new view of the Prohibition
question was taken by Hev. Q. W.
Bummerscales In a .special sermon
delivered at $l. James church, Van
couver, on Sunday evening last tn
the course of bla address the revet
end gentleman said there were, tt i
all know, many good people who apparently spent all their energies lit
proclaiming total abstinence, and In
lighting tooth and nail those Whose
daily avocation it was to provide
and sell Intoxicants. These people
had organized a political parly (or
the avowed purpose of destroying the
drink habit,. All knew that degradation, disease and misery tiad come
into tbe world through over-indul
gence in strong drink. But, was it
any use to try and stop, this terrible
abuse by putting the machinery of
civil law into action? What moral
or spiritual -profit would accrue to
a man who could not help himself,
but was compelled by force of law to
be sober-1 He did not Bn'd any lan
of God in the N>w Testiment which
stated that a man Bhould bv debarred
from exercising his liberty in tbe
choice of food aud drink. He did
read of our Lord being present at B
marriage feast aud miraculously
providing a plentiful supply of wine.
He also read of -St. Paul advising
Timothy to use wine for his bodily
infirmities. Nevertheless tnere were
such things .as Christian principle,.
There were such things as the sin
of intemperance and the .in of gluttony. It. could not lie denied that if
a man could nut partake of certain
things without making a beast of
himself he had much better' abstain
altogether. There was such a thing
as the freedom of the will—a gift
from God to humanity. And it whs
a good thing for the human will to
be exercised In total abstinence
where a man would only degrade
himself by drink. But if this exercise of the will was to have any
moral merit at all, the man must be
left free in bis choice. To his mind
there was a higher position—that
was, moderation and self-control in
all things. So that it was not the
truo Christian attitude ' to'gird at
those who did not hold with total
abstinence, but ut the same exercised
full Hell-control in all things The
true method, hu took it, oi raising
the standard of morality was not to
compel people to be moral by act oi
parliament, so to speak, hut by Inculcating principles of right living
and self-control in individuals.
OlscUBsing the prohibition question,
a very live issue in Utah just at
present, the "Halt Lake City Herald'
of the llth ultimo declares that
"Tho experience of the other states
in tho American Union shows that
prohibition does not reduce tbe evils
of tho liquor traffic. We believe
that tbe liquor men of Utah today
(irmly believe that tbey will sell
more liquor under state-wide prohibition than they will under high li-
conse and strict regulation. Oklahoma is in the throes of a fight over
the question whether state-wide prohibition or high licenses, local option or strict regulation is the best
solution of the liquor question. Elk
City is the largest town in Peckham
county, Oklahoma. Tbat city at the
,ast election voted for prohibition.
Prom January LO to December 13,
1909, 16. barrels of whiskey, 48*_
cases of whiskey, 1,033 barrels of
beer and thirteen cases of beer were
shipped into Elk City over the Rock
Island railroad. All this was shipped into a town that had declared
for  prohibition.

Reports From The Prairie
Country Indicate Large
Spring  Demand.
That, tbo En si. Kootonay lumber
com pantos imve exporloncod a far
more satisfactory season than waa
ex per ted uud t.luil. the demand for
products of tho mills from the prairie provinces in tho spring and sum
mer will ba large was thn statement
made ni the Strathcona last night
by a. Carney of Knfllo, assistant
t.i in ber Inspector and collector of
"The people ol Albrrtn and Hask-
atchewan," said Mr. Carnoy, "nre
fooling very optlmlBtlfl regarding
next yoar's crops owing to the largo
amount of moisture that has fallen
on the laud lately      They anticipate
that the land n-. a result ol the
snow and rain that has fallen will
be In tirst class couditlon (or rorelv
in.; the seed and that the eropi will
consequently be heavy This optl
mlatlc feeling lo tho prairies reacts
on tho lumbermen ol Brttieb Colum
bin Who knows i hat if tho crops are
beavj the demand for lumber wlll
be proportionallj  bo
Mi Carney stated that practically
all the large mills m Mast Kooteuay
had   closed   down   for   the   Winter   and
that they ail had aeut men Into the
woods tu fell timber for next sea
son's sawing operations, Many of
the planing mlUs, however, were still
iu   operation Among     the     large
nulls which hnve lumbermen at work
in the woods are the Raker Lumber
company at Waldo; the Adolph company at Dayue's lake; the Elk River
Lumber company; the Fernie Lumber
company, the three mills of tho East
Kootenay Lumber company; the
Staples Lumber company at Wycliffe, the Standard Lumber company
the Crow's N'est Lumber company at
Wardner; the Jewell Lumber company at Jaffray; tho Robs Lumber
company; the Taylor Lumber company nt Kimberley; and the Rock
Creek Lumber company; the Cooke
Lumber company at Kaslo is making
preparations to send men out into
the woods shortly,
"The partial crop failure in tbe
prairies last summer." said Mr. Carney, "did uor affect the East Kooteuay companies as greatly as at one
time feared. Tbe business during
tbe spring was abnormally heavy
and a number of companies when
thoy closed down for the winter
months had not a stick of merchan.
table lumber in their yards. The
Crow's Nest Pass Lumber company
for instance had 20,000,000 feet at
the beginning of the year but since
the late spring have been unable to
fill ordersf The Taylor Lumber
company's atock is depleted and the
same may be said of the Standard
Lumber company. It is true, however, that some of the larger companies have considerable stock still
on hand but these should all he considerably lightened by the eurly part
of the year."
Tho district covered by Mr. Carney
in making his various trips of inspection covers a large territory and
extonds Irom the provincial boundary
lino between British Columbia and
Alberta and Nelson on the west aud
enst and the main line and international boundary line on the north
and south. In this district there
are about 45 mills. Of this number
40 have operated during tbe past
Mr, Carney mentioned that the
Watts Lumber company at Proctor
and Wattsburg were still cutting
and are preparing for a big winter's
cut."A. E. Watts" observed Mr. Carney, "ls constructing a logging rail-
road between the Wattsburg mill and
the timber limits from which the
lumber Is being taken, The company will be logging by rail this
"The railroad will effect a great
saving in expense," he said. "One
engine and three men will transport
moro logs in a day tba^ 10 pair o|
horses and 20 men could move in the
same time. Tlie capital invested in
the railroad fs also loss than that
necessary to provide sutllclont horses
