The Practical Side of the
Local Option Question  *
From "Westward Ho" Magazine
That extremes meet is a plat- now'    A recent statistical  ar- ance reformer,  like  a modern
,    ,        , |.i ,   ;    ,i,„ i „„,.,,,   u ,,,,,,.,/ii,,. lia ho, cares lor none ol these
itinle, and  that  the cure may | title in the Uniet, a iiiag.i/.im
often be worse than the disease-
is an accepted fact. In the
same way throughout all ages
the name of reformer has too
often been synonymous with
that of extremist; and what is
undoubtedly true ol past times
is no less true of the present
day. The horrors of mediaeval
history are no longer existent;
gone are the burnings at thc
stake and the tortures ol the
pillory, bul the rancorous spun
which, regardless of reason and
itiililliTcni to the warnings of
lhe past, persecutes its oppon
cnts lo the bitter end, is still
omnipresent,and burns as licrcc-
ly now as when lhe religious
factions of Germany turned a
fruitful land into a desert • aMc-
during the time of lhc Thirty
Years' War.
Tha revivalist meetings wlinli
have attracted so much popularity in the United Stales, where
lhe fantastic extravagances of
lhe  preacher  have more  tli.ui
ol international reputation,
slated that l'ortlatid, Maine,
showed forty-two convictions
for drunkenness per one thousand ot population, as against
seven per thousand ill London,
England,    The late Principal
Grant, a Presbyterian ecclesiastic of highest scholarship and
probity ol life, stated as ,i
solemn fact lhat during Uui operation of the Scott and Duncan Ails in Ontario, there \i as
just twice as much drunkenness
as when the province was -wet.'
Below are printed comparative
things. The liquor interests arc
the direct agents of the devil,
and as such, deserve to be
plqnged into ruin ami tlestitty-
tion. Not one jot is he allectetl
bv the spectacle ol hundreds ol
thousands, who are, directly or
Indirectly, dependent on the liquor trade, being thrown out ol
employment. "To the devil
thev belong; to the devil let
tlietn go," is his altitude, if

Bangor, Maine, with no licensed saloons, it being a prohibition state, heads the list with
1,23b arrests for drunkenness.
Facts such as these speak for
his own intolerance and narrow
niindedness must inevitably
postpone.
The attitude of the Local Op-
tionist on the question of the
personal  liberty of the  subject

reference to the criminal statistics ol the various provinces and
states throughout the North
American continent, Such a
search, however, is unnecessary.
He must be blind indeed, and
stubborn ol determination  not

blasphemy, allord many txam-1prove to his own satisfaction
pies ol this kind; and the   pre
senl campaign which is being
waged over the whole ol this
continent on the subjects ol Local Dpi um and Prohibition is
another case in point.
It is now-a-days universally
recogni/.ed that persecution ol
any kind eventually strengthens
the status ol its victims. The
siillcrings ol the early Christians
gave the necessary impetus to
missionary work. But it is the
misfortune of the Teiiipii.iiiu
reformer that he is seldom logical, and loo little inclined lo
view both sides 01 the case.
Moreover, the failures ol the
past, instead of rousing in lum
an earnest desire to avoid their
causes lor lhe luture, seem lo
inspire him wilh an insane determination  to force the same
that in every instance llu dosing ol the licensed bouses lias te
suited in the opening ol "blind
pigs."
ls it better to serve good
liquor openly, under proper supervision of lhe police, or to
li.iiul out the surreptitious bottle ol "lukcd" goods, and leave
it to thc Local Optionists to sec
to it thai here is no drunkenness
For it is the contention ol the
Local Oplionists that the present system ol control is inclli-
cicnl. They desire lo deprive
municipal and provincial authorities ol the power ol supervision and to invest their own
representatives with the same.

DRESSMAKING OB THE PKI-MISES.
A timely article appears in
the November number ol the
Norlli American Review, from
the pen of Russell E. Macnaghten, oi this city. The article is
entitled "Local Option and Alter," and the writer handles his
subject in a forceful maimer,
giving likewise some ucw observations with reference to this
widely discussed question.
In his opinion a local option
bill should give the people opportunity lo choose between
three alternatives, lirst, the present license system, second, a
new lorm of license system under which the clement ol personal prolit shall be eliminated,antl
third, the prohibition ol the
trallic.
Ile further suggests that a
basis should be laid ol one license for every 1000 population,
and that every local option vote
sliould have attached thereto,
the opportunity to vote lor the
reduction ol the number of licenses, the reduction ol the
hours for selling, aud the imposing of a space limit, to prevent
the liim,lun-; of bars.
In the matter of majorities,
the writer takes the position
that in towns of 10,000 people
aud under, a sixty per cent, or
oven a fifty per cent vote should
prove sullicient to permit of Undue enforcement of ligislaiiuii.
but tb.it in lentils ol more lli.ui
10,000 people a two-thints majority vote should Ik- ret|iiiinl.
Mr. M.unagltlen deals al some
length with tlie Norwegian IJta
tern wlm li allows no bars, eliminates the personal prolll Ical-
ure by placing ownership 111 the
li.iinls of a semi-municipal company, with profits restricted lo
tivu per cent and which disposes
o( all surplus prolits lor the encouragement of expedients de
signed to Iwa the influence oi
the drink habit, or at any rale
for purposes not chargeable lo
the. ordinary rates.

PROVINCIAL ELECTIONS
Belore tlie publication ol the

poll will have been held for the
election of members to thc provincial legislature. The wiui-
paign has not been one of unusual length, but it has Men
carried on wilh /.est and \igoi
by all parties. This together
with favorable weather .oiiili-
tions, and the fact lhat the 111-
llux ol population has malted
iu the adding ol many bundle Is
of new names to the voters'
lists, will doubtless cause tile
polling of a vote far in excess ol
any numbers hitherto attained

but has nevertheless been prosc-
cuted with businesslike directness and energy, bv the supporters ol the respective candidates,

ALIKE DEMAND THE DEVELOPMENT Of GREATER BURRARD INLET, OF WHICH NORTH VANCOUVER CITY is THK CENTRE AND

North Vancouver has 20 miles of watcrfror.tage available lor industries, shipping and railway liases.
The Canadian Government has voted $200,000, also $6,400 per mile lor bridging the Inlet
and connecting North Vancouver by rail with Vancouver.
The Dominion Minister ol Public Works stated this summer on the Coast that if necesiary
he would favor additional Government assistance to complete this bridge, and the expediting of
this connecting link, available by all railroads, now engages North Vancouvi r I itv and the
neighboring municipalities with the approval ol the Provincial Governnu ul

The comparatively large attendance in proportion to the
number of members, was favorably commented upon, by President W. J, Irwin, at the regu-
ar session of the board of trade
on Tuesday evening. It is
doubtful if the local board in
this regard, can be excelled anywhere in the province.
A cotniiiiinicatioii was read
from the Vancouver board of
trade, enclosing a copy of a resolution adopted by that boanl
to lhc ellect that a clause be inserted in the proposed agreement between thc government
and the C. N. R., to the ellect
that freight and passenger rates
within Hritish Columbia, shall
not exceed the rates in lhe prairie provinces by more Uian live
per cent, and asking that this
be endorsed. After a short discussion, the resolution was endorsed.
The matter of the appointment of a harbor board was
brought under discussion, and
it was unanimously agreed that
some action was necessitated,in
view of the movement which
has lately developed, to include
Point Grey and the North Arm
the I-'rascr, in the bounds oi
the jurisdiction ol the board.
It was moved by D. G. Dick,
and seconded by Alex. Smith,
that in the opinion of this
board, north Vancouver should
not become parly lo any harbor
trust'scheme which includes any
waters outside of Burrard Inlet.
This motion was later withdrawn in lavor of a motion by
I. R. J. Murrav and seconded
by I). G. Dick, to the ellect that
in the opinion of this board,the
interests of North Vancouver
demand that any harbor trust
with which Nortli Vancouver is
associated, should include the
nortli shore ol Hurrard Inlet
only.
It was moved in amendment
by Geo. II. Morden alld see
oilded by S. D. Schult/., that
this meeting re-albnn its adherence to tllc formation ol a
harbor trust lor the port ol
Vaniouver upon the basis    set
mt in the dralt bill drawn up
under the direction of this board
ind   duly    adopted   111   regular
session.
The matter   was  debated   at
etigth, many memberi participating, and upon the vote being
taken, the amendment was lost
and the motion was carried by
a majority of one, in each instance.
The following were duly proposed as new im-iiilK-rs of the
board, and on ballot declared
elected: H.J. Campbell, .lohn
B. Paine, A. Wallace, M. I,.
Paynter and A. J. Henderson.
Tlm name ol Alex. Smiili was
•dded to the delegation to attend the next meeting, called in
Vancouver, to consider the question ol a board ol harbor commissioners.
Aid. Schultz gave several notices of motion for the next regular meeting of the board.
These notices have reference to
live issues and will create liveli
discussion.
