THE   MAIL-HERALD, REVELSTOKE
PAQH   THR-M
PROVED TO THE HILT!
It has been absolutley demonstrated that
the executive of the People's Prohibition Party has been false to a trust.
Now, upon the Defence, Messrs. Gibson, Hammond and
Woodworth support the Party's parliamentary representatives and say that, although the Prohibition Act is
weak, it is, nevertheless, the limit of provincial powers.
They will not tell the whole truth, nor even part of tbo
truth concerning this Counterfeit, wide-open measure
It Is suggested that the following
apology might properly be Issued by
the People's Prohibition Party:
APOLOGY
The Prohibition Act does not prohibit tho sale or use
ot linuor.
It provides for wide distribution, by vendors and drug
stores and the unlimited importation from without tho
Province,  to be consumul in way quantity in the home.
The reason why this is permitted is because the Province has no power to rlo otherwise, that is, although we
call the Act a Prohibition measure, such a thing is not
possible.
C. Woodworth (Political Adviser).
People's Prohibition Party,
The Truth
The Doherty Act, passed by
the Dominion Senate on May 8,
is entitled "An Act in aid of
Provincial Legislation prohibiting or restricting the USE OR
SALE of   intoxicating liquors.'"
It does exactly as it says It
does, and I which is within the
powers of the Dominion Government, prevents any person sending liquor into n province
against the laws of tbc Province
Therefore, if tbe Provincial Government pass a law prohibiting
the use of liquor, no person can
Import liquor Into the Province.
AUTHORITY - Hon. C. J.
Doherty, Dominion Minister of
Justice.

Keel Laid for the First Steel
Steamship to be Built on Pacific Coast-Great Importance to British Columbia
J
THE
B. C.
Last week saw the laying ol tbe
keel of the first steel steamship to be
built on the British Columbia coast.
The importance of this to BritiBh
Columbia's industrial future may be
very great. It is only a hundred years
Since the brent modern shipyards and
shipping lineB had their beginnings,
nnd those beginnings were no larger
thun tbis. lt is about tbe some
length ol time since iron ships were
brst mooted. The general introduction of iron and steel ships dates
from less than fifty years ago, however, and the first steel ship to traverse the Atlantic sailed to a Canadian port.
Tbis new firstling is    commissioned
lor a  Japanese line from tbe Wallace
Yards in North Vancouver, by a British firm of shipbrokers.  Undoubtedly
the order is     indirectly owing to tbe
war.  Shipbuilding, and the control of
seaborne   commerce have always been
influenced     by war, and in turn tbey
decide the issue in all     great     wars.
The late Admiral Mahan   traced     the
inevitable     connection     between    sea
power and world empire     throughout
the world's known history    long   before the present     war   furnished such
striking proof of it. Being an American, he began his deductions at home
with the observation of the fact that
it was the sea power of    the    North
that     doomed the South.     But there
was reaction as well as     action' the
United States, which before the rebellion     had been running England close
as a maritime     power,    came out of
the war crippled in her sea wing. Her
merchant   marine steadily diminished,1
until a few years ago there   waB but
one sea-going vessel registered   under
the American flag. The reason of this
was that    the great change from sail
to stearr., and from wooden vessels to
iron ones,  began while the Civil War
was being fought.   The United States
was too busy to keep up     with     tbe
march   of mechanical progress during
four years,  and then  England's start
was   too   great to be made up by an
exhausted nation,     with   the task of
reconstruction on its hands.
No such fate will befall the British
Empire during the present war. The
rhipyards of the British Isles are
working twenty-four hour shifts at
full capacity, and adding to that capacity as (fast as possible. This ship
is but a crumb fallen from their ta-
j bles. Nevertheless, it is a rice, nourishing crumb, and may be followed
by a slice. More and more ships will,
be wanted until the end of the war.,
War prices for ship? are such that
any shipyard can well afford to build
without subsidies. Ships bave chang^
ed hands in the last year for more
than ten times their ante-bellum value. Ships have been chartered at a
year's rental exceeding their total
cost. The conditions are extremely
favorable for a young and tender industry.
It is just promptitude in taking
advantage of favoring circumstances
that marks the inception of all great
business undertakings.

According to a report in the Vara-
couver Sun, M. A. Macdonald at Kaslo declared that Premier Bowser had
said that he, Macdonald, had regis-,
tered John T. Scott, plugger secret-:
ary, in a false name ae the parliament buildings. What Mr. Bowser actually said was that Scott when he
uneaked into the buildings for a secret conference with Mr. Macdonnld
and H. 0. Brewster registered in a
false name and Mr. Macdonald vouch-:
ed tor him when he passed the doorkeeper. This is the fact and Mr. Macdonald cannot truthfully deny it.
It is reported tbat the Liberal
campaign management is procuring a
statement, more or less solemn, from
John T. Scott, alias Stewart, alias
Wright formerly of "Thc Sun" staff,
and a campaign manager in the rei'
cent bye-election. The report iB that
Scott is to implicate the Conservatives ln the plugging operations. A
rr.an who would carry out the plugging plot for Mr. Macdonald's benefit,'

"So the people may know." "Tho
Sun" gives a tablo in largo red type
saying that the salary of tho Premier!
of British Columbia is larger by
?1MK) than that of the Premier of any.
other province.
How is this shown?
By the simple process of adding the
sessional indemnity to the salary of
the Premier of British Columbia, and
not adding to the salary of tho other
premiers the sessional indemnity.
That is so the people may not
know.
The province pays the leader of tho
Opposition in this province a good!
deal more in proportion to thc work
he does than it pays the Premier.'
Mr. Brewster getb the $.1100, and the
Fcssion usually lasts six weeks. On
that hasiB the Premier would have a
salary of $24,800.
If Mr. Brewster could havc brought
the session to an end March 14, as
he tried to do, he would have obtained $3101) in ten days.

Eleven Million Dollars

for one single moment!

II   the dive continue to freely spend from their gigantic "boodle" barrel in un endeavor to confuse a-id mislead the people. In not a single ono of their costly advertisements have they made    any attempt to
defend the trallic in which they are engaged.
In 1.14 the people of British Columbia expended $11,000,0.0.00 for
liquor, and It is for a continuation ol this that the Whisky Combine is
Bghting. The Liquor Interests know that tbc Uritish Columbia Prohibition Act DOBS prohibit—that the Uritish Columbia Prohibition Act is
the BEST Prohibition Act in all Canada. That is the reason they have
opened their gigantic "boodle" barrel to defeat it.
Here is the approximate cJs7of  "booze"   in British   Colum-

HERE IS WHAT THE PARLIAMENTARY INVESTIGATION INTO THE
PLUGGING SCANDALS PROVED: , •      |       M|}||
JUDGE FOR YOURSELF, MR. VOTER.
At the Parliamentary investigation into the plugging scandals forty*
seven witnesses were examiued at twenty-seven sittings, and gave evldonce
covering two thousand typewrittenpages of foolscap. The facts proved w
ere as follows:
John T.  Scott was thc secretary ol tho Provincial Liberal Association.
On the appointment of the Parliamentary Committee Scott skipped td
Seattle and stayed there.
Jerry Finch, Scott's attorney, was chief adviser to Macdonald during
the Parliamentary investigation.
Johnny Clancy, Jack and Monty White, prominent in the underworld ot
Seattle, were the chief organizers ot the pluggers.
The pluggers were gathered into groups of from ten to fifteen, eacti
group in charge of a leader.
Numerous rooming houseB in Vancouver were used for thc pluggers' ao
commodatfon.
Herbert Pearce, ex-employee of tha "Sun" and Scott's chief assistant^
hired the rooms.
Pearce   swore that Macdonald srr-Ugglfcd him out of the country.
OVER 5,000 PLUGGERS'S CARDS WERE PREPARED BY SCOTT AND
FILLED IN BY MRS. WILKES.
The pluggers' cards read on one side: Your    name Is   Youa
address ia     Your occupation is     You vote in Ward
    Your number on the voters' list is    While on the other     side
was a sample ballot marked for Macdonald.
Pearce stated that all of these cards had been distributed.
Pluggers voted from six to ten times each.
Scott gave Gosden $900 to hribe impersonators. All of the pluggerB without exception voted for Macdonald.
Reddington, of thc Thiel Detective Agency, employed by the Llberala,
swore that the Conservatives had conducted a clean campaign.
Clements and Allen, two chauffeurs.said the autos used by the pluggcra
werc hired by Liberal Association. Pluggers' autos were designated by blue
ribbon.
A gigantic   impersonation conspiracy was proved to the hilt.
All trails at the enquiry led to Scott, assistant secretary of the Organization Committee of the Provincial Liberal Association, of which Macdonald was chairman.
The warrant for Scott's arrest was not issued ucitil the last week of tha
investigation, and not until ho had failed to answer to the subpoena.
Scott visited Macdonald in Victoria while the Investigation was ln progress.
Macdonald admits that he suggested Scott's name ns secretary of the
Liberal Association.
YET DR. SUTHERLAND AND HIS FRIENDS ARE TRYING TO MAKE!
THE ELECTORS BELIEVE THE WHOLE THING WAS A VILE PLOT
ON THE PART OF THE TORIES TO  RUIN MACDONALD.
On September llth, Mr. Voter, you will have
whether or not you approve of these actions.
SCOTT WAS AVAILABLE.
an opportunity of stating-
In a recent speech at Vancouver, Premier Bowser stated as follows:
If Mr. Macdonald or Mr. Brewster wanted to got at the higher-ups, they
could havc placed Scott in the witness box at the Victoria investigation,
when there was no warrant for his anest and when immunity was extended
to him. They had him thcre in their room in thc House 15 feet from the
room where the investigation was being carried on. Why didn't they put
him on the stand? Now they nBk immunity for him. 1 am not here to make
deals with the Liberals, so that they can wash their dirty linen. When the
paper made the exposure about tho Vancouver plugging at Eustcr, what
did Mr. Macdonald do? Instead of spending his holidays in Vancouver he
went to Seattle, where Scott is, and thither went Mr. Farris of Revelstoke, a brother of Mr. deB. Farris, the Liberal candidate in Vancouver.
Mr. Macdonald returned to British Ooluirihla about the time Gosden claims
he received the $50 from him. I cannot bring Scott back here, but It he
comes ho will be prosecuted, tho same as Annance was, and if Scott has
nothing to fear, why does he not come back? Why does not. Mr. Macdonald
get an affidavit from him in Seattle, if he wants to get at the higher-ups?
If Scott, comes back here now he wlll face a charge of bigamy nnd a
charge of making a fnlse affidavit, If his contention thnt he is nn Aimerl-
eari citizen is tme. For he mnde an application prior to thc by-election tc
have hia name plnced on the voters' list. Do you think, even if the war-
innt wns Withdrawn, that he'd come back in the face of these two charges?
