New Liquor Act Con.nu...ikd
"I have recently travelled over a
considerable portion uf this province,
and I have made it my business to
Inquire intu and observe the working of the new liquor traffic regulations," testifies "Bruce" in tbe latest issue of tbe "Saturday Bunsnt,"
Vancouver. "I give no hearsay
when I say tlmt I have seen nt least
a dozen cases of intoxicated men refused liquor in various parts of the
province. That one provision alone
is of thc greatest value. Another
admirable feature of this Act is the
facility with which an habitual
may be Interdicted, Any peace officer, member nf his family or even a
friend may 'SIwash' a man by securing the necessary notice and sending
it. to the hotel keeper. I bave seen
long lists of tboso mon iu different
placesf The only weakness in tbo
system is the lack of adequate description of tbe man si washed, who
may be able to impose upon tho ho
tel kneper who does not know him.
But even at thai the hotel keeper is
responsible and subject to a penalty
if he sell liquor to au interdicted
man whntber he knows him or not.
I believe tho Act is being generally
and well enforced and moreover hotel keepers are realizing that It is In
