All the Liberal speakers do is to
attack, the government nnd its poli-
1 les and scream exploded charges tind
personal abuse at the members of the
I cabinet. Tbey ask tbe people to turn
oul a government which is putting a
const met ive development policy into
effect, a policy which is already bringing marked results in Increased acini! y, but thej do not say what policy they would Introduce to take the

"Mr. Brewster is 'the inconspicuous tool of a bunch of Liberals who

The Liberals oppose the government's policy of raising revenue.
The alternative thoy oiler is to get
the money from the "producers." In
other words they would curtail development work or increase the taxes on
the incomes of the  people.

ot white heather gathered from     our

Why Is The Whisky Combine
So Anxious to Defeat the
British Columbia Pro-
hibition Act?
Do you suppose, for one moment, they have opened the
gigantic "boodle" barrel to defeat the bill if ihe bill did
NOT prohibit?
M WHOEVER heard ol a Liquor rowd advocating fl Prohibition Act?
II Still, the Whisky Combine in British Columbia would bave YOU believe that. They brazenly tell you that Prohibition is all right, but
that the British Columbia Prohibition Act docs NOT prohibit. In substance they say: "We, the Whisky ntrrests, believe in Prohibition, but
we want an Act which WILL prohibit—not the present British Columbia
Prohibition Act."
Think of that for one moment' j
Imagine the Whisky Combine Bpendtng their "boodle" barrel to secure
an Act for British Columbia which DOES prohibit.
The Whisky Confine evidently consuMrs thc people ol British Columbia
nre brainless, unthinking tools.
The British Columbia Prohibition Act  LOES prohibit.
It is the BEST Prohibition Act in all Canada.
The Whisky Combine KNOWS it.
The people i if    British     Columbia
KNOW it.
. lacing in force of the British
Columbia    Prohibition  Act means
•r.ore prosperity for   every     man,
n    ad child within   our bor-
happy homes, heal-
ind cleaner minds.
The adoption of thc British Columbia Prohibition Act will be the
death-blow to bar rooms, saloons,
..n.i houses of ill-fame.
The adoption of the British Columbia Prohibition Act will mean
a saving to thc people of Vancouver alone of nearly $5,000,000.00
per annum.
